It is naturally a difficult task to say a final good bye to a mother. It is even harder to give an eulogy to a loving and caring mother who gave you life and ensure that you live a meaningful life.
That was the story in the ancient and historical town of Epe, Lagos State, last weekend when the prestigious Ademuyiwa family bid theit final farewell to the matriarch of the family, Princess Victoria Oyinade Adedeji.
The carnival-like ceremony left no one in doubt about the pedigree of the Ademuyiwas who have long been noted for leaving no stone untouched in such matters.
Signs of what to expect began to manifest as early as Wednesday when the town began to witness a never-before seen influx of gaily-dressed crowd.
By Friday, the town was already agog with large traffic of beautiful and gaily dressed men and women heading towards the home of former Executive Chairman of Kosofe Local Government, Omoba Ademuyiwa Adedeji, one of the sons of the late Madam Adedeji.
For the real estate giant and politician, it was one last opportunity to give his mother a very befitting farewell honour.
Sure, the burial ceremony of Princess Victoria Oyinade Adedeji may have come and gone, but it’s memory will linger for a long time to come in the minds of the people.

I did it: Halima Abubakar speaks on ‘affair’ with Apostle Suleman
Nigerian Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has finally spoken out on her alleged affair with Apostle Johnson Suleman.
Suleman, the general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, has been enmeshed in the labyrinth of “sex scandals” in the past years.
In July, the cleric was in the news again after a blog claimed he had affair with a host of Nigerian actresses including Abubakar, Georgina Onuoha, Queen Nwokoye, Shan George, and Vivian Metchie.
Others, according to the blog, include Lilian Bach, Iyabo Ojo, Ruth Kadiri, Mercy Johnson, Chinyere Winifred, Larriet Omo Brish, Ini Edo, Joy Ogbunu, Angela Okorie, and Mary Uranta.
At the time, the report sparked heated reactions on social media, with several of the named actresses dismissing the allegation.
Suleman also debunked the post and described the list as an unrealistic litany of names curated to bring him down.
In a dramatic twist on Sunday, Abubakar took to her Instagram stories to call out Suleman.
The film star claimed she agreed to date him at the time because the cleric told him he had separated from his wife.
“I f*ck up yes. I own my mistakes. But I won’t lie anymore. Nigga said he was separated. I didn’t meet a married man. I met a bizman with three kids. Long story, stay away from liars,” she wrote.
In another post, Abubakar also accused the clergyman of paying blogs monthly to promote lies.
“Every month only you. How do you sleep? You paid off the blogs, only you, God forbid. Look for lies and send it to your bloggers. They need am,” she added.
“But you you you JS. You bought market Sule. Emperor Sule. Allow me rest biko. Don’t fuck with me bro. Dude.”
Abubakar had earlier engaged Shan George in a war of words over the alleged affair involving the cleric.
As of the time of this report, Suleman has not reacted to Abubakar’s claim.

“All your senior colleagues you claim to respect so much tell me that one person you haven’t bad mouthed, you are always angry anytime they send me a message, you would accuse them of sleeping with your boyfriends, I even asked her to further her education overseas, just to better her life, so it would be easy to introduce her to my people in Ekiti,” he said.

I will tell you all this,your role model Nkechi, she has a mental problem, I even asked her to see a doctor, and she told me, she will be fine that is why she smokes weed to help her maintain balance, she won’t even know what she is doing at that moment.
“How will you marry a woman who takes weed to be calm every day , I have my reasons for leaving her and I don’t regret it, she is the last person to come online to start insulting a person because I have a lot of dirty secrets but I choose not to disclose online,” he said.
I merely used Falegan to get back at my ex-boyfriend, never loved him – Nkechi Blessing
Controversial Nollywood actress, Nkechi Blessing, has once again ignited her year-long beef with politician ex-lover, Opeyemi Falegan.
Speaking during an interview with TVC ‘s ‘Your View’ aired on Thursday, Blessing talked about her immediate past relationship and how it finally ended.

Describing how she got into a relationship with Falegan, she said, “The thing is, he was the one that loved me more. It was the time that I was trying to level up to the love he has for me that he messed up.
“I recently broke out from a relationship with my ex that lived in America, and in the heat of the breakup, while we were still trying to fix things, he started posting a girl, covering her face.
“Then I realised there’s this man asking me out, okay, fine man. In all ramifications of people I like to date, he’s not 1–10. So that was me just trying to use him to get back at my ex – then I landed in relationship.”

“This girl will never stop mentioning my name kilodeee? Once I have a reason to go, I will never find an excuse to come back. U no get content again?
“Attaching my name to yours is dysfunctional, just stop mentioning my name abeg, someone should please give her contents, she sounds really empty now,” he wrote.
Falegan and Nkechi got into a public war of words ealier in the year, as they announced the breakdown of their marriage.
Despite sharing pictures of her purported wedding back in 2021, Blessing stated after their break-up that she was never legally married to Falegan.
