Popular Nigerian musician, Duncan Mighty, has released an audio tape of his ex-wife, Vivian allegedly confessing to her evil deeds. This comes weeks after the singer accused his ex-wife of poisoning his food and bathing water for two years and 11 months.
Taking to his Instagram, the musician dropped the audio tape which contained his former wife’s alleged confessions. Duncan Mighty stated that he had forgotten about the issue and moved on so he can heal completely, but his ex wife and mother in law granted an interview with BBC which was full of lies and deceit.
In his words: “Even when I have forgotten about the things you did to me most especially for the fact that my recovery and healing is assured through the help of Jesus. Just because you escaped the public disgrace in Rumukurusi after a police officer saved you. Instead of your mom to play the role of a mother you and your mom now went to @ BBC news pidgin and @ Nigeria info pH to grant lies and deceit.
“My dear, it is too late, check the link on my bio and hear Vivian’s confessions. Part 1: you carry the same money we I give you go tie me down with deadliest sickness. Them no dey use Lion do sacrifice, # thank you Jesus”.

Reward For Creativity: Entertainment Advancement Awards Berths In PH

Published

on

Burna Boy’s Mum, Ibinabo Fibresema, Adasa Cookey, Leri Q and other Port Harcourt made celebs nominated Isaac Utere Foundation in conjunction with Omas Studio is perfecting plans to celebrate personalities and organisations that have contributed to the advancement of the entertainment and creative sector in the South-South of Nigeria.
The partnership was announced early in the year in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, as part of the synergy needed to bring about a boom in the industry down South.
The progenitor and self dubbed, ‘Most Valuable Grand Daddy’, Mr Isaac Utere said he is inspired by his experience in the region during the last decade, which has had him see many young people use their talent/skills to catapult themselves from the underground to the mainstream.
As a Port Harcourt based creative enthusiast and father of multiple award winning talented children, Mr Utere said the initiative is expected to not only reward the key players, but motivate new catalysts, hence, the theme of the maiden edition, the Revelation.
While decrying the low rate of support for talent from government and corporate bodies in Niger Delta, Mr Isaac has not allowed that to be a deterrent, as he has contributed to take the youths off the streets through empowerment and talent development. He uses his foundation to support talents and train them on worthwhile skills that can help them make a living.
The award ceremony, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 13 at Amas Event center, Gbalaja, Alcon Way, Peter Odili  Way, towards Woji, Port Harcourt is expected to play host to who-is-who in the entertainment industry in this part of the country.
Burna Boy’s Mum, Ibinabo Fibresima, Adasa Cookey, Leri Q and other Port Harcourt made celebs are nominated and expected at the historic five Star award ceremony!
