If I may ask sir, have you ever been sexually molested by a clergyman? If no, then why are you always writing trash about different men of God? You had said all manner of evil things against my Pastor, the General overseer of The Redeemed Christian church of God,(RCCG), a great man of God, who had dedicated all his life to serving God and humanity, you had also fabricated lies against the general overseer of Winners Chapel, and now you are tarnishing the image of another great man of God just because a girl accused him wrongly of having an affair with her.

#BBNaija: Kemen's Brother Debunk Rumors Family Will Be Suing Big Brother Naija

Since his disqualification,the internet was agog with news of BBNaija's contestant, Kemen's family, planning on suing the organizers of the show for disqualifying him.

His brother however, has reacted to this. He took to Facebook to share a lengthy post which reads thus:
Re: Kemen's Family Threatens To Sue Big Brother Naija.

Dear Nigerians, My Name is Mmenimkeakpaniko Ekerette, Eldest brother to Ekemini Ekerette AKA KEMEN of the Big Brother Naija. Our attention have been drawn to various publication and news items circulating in the media, that we the family of Kemen intend to take legal action against the organizers of Big Brother Naija 2017 about the way and manner that our son Kemen was disqualified from the reality TV show.

#BBNaija: Speaker of Akwa Ibom Assembly Reacts To Kemen's Eviction

Here's what the speaker posted via his page:
I have never really watched the big brother Nigeria, I only follow it activities on the social media. Up until this evening Kemen our son was celebrated online by fans and followers of BBN from our very Akwa Ibom but suddenly, a breaking news of his disqualification from the house and the whole narrative changed and the social Media is now saturated with different stories and versions about Kemen and his disqualification.
Many who before now had celebrated Kemen are in a hurry to crucify him for his mistake(s).
My take here is not to hold brief for Kemen and whatever he might have done to merit his disqualification( which I am yet to know) but to reflect on how difficult it is to be in the spotlight in our clime - the fear of failing - the fear of making mistakes - the fear of mockery and the most dreaded of them all - the fear of inua Uyo. We are all humans and are all prone to mistakes but when we are not the affected we engage sanctimonious disposition that tends to confer sainthood.

Uche Jombo Becomes ‘Made In Aba’ Ambassador

Veteran Nollywood actress, UcheJombo seems to have become a major proponent of the ‘made in aba’ or should we say ‘Buy Naija’ mantra.

Going by the number of billboards in Abia State that carries her name and a strong message for those going abroad to buy things that are produced in Aba as well, we can safely say that she has become an ambassador for the state or the message.

The billboard that has littered almost every street in Abia State has her picture and these words inscribed on them, “I am proudly made in Aba. Aba can make everything you travel abroad to buy” – Uche Jombo.
