We Didn’t Mean To Hurt Jim Iyke – Helen Paul

Published

on

Several month after actor, Jim Iyke, was allegedly ‘delivered’ at the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Lagos, the ripple has yet to die down, especially after comedian AY turned it to a skit.

Capture

Iyke reacted negatively to the scene, which also featured Helen Paul, saying, “People cross the lines sometimes for relevance. It disappoints if it comes from people you deemed to have self respect. Classless.”

However, Helen, commenting on the situation, said the skit was just a joke and not necessarily meant to hurt Jim Iyke even as the video has gone viral.

“It is just a joke. I am an actress and a senior colleague called me for a job. I was given the script and I acted my part. We did not mean to hurt Jim Iyke. In the skit, I was portrayed as a prostitute but that is not what Helen Paul is about,” she said.

According to her words, the alleged ‘deliverance’ was something that was highly discussed in the society and that was probably why he was mentioned in the skit.

The actress stressed the fact that the skit was purely for humour purpose and not malicious in any way.

Meanwhile AY refused to comment on the issue as he and Iyke are friends.

It has been provided by Saturday Beats that when the video went viral and the news broke early in the week, AY contemplated on a response but later said that he and the actor were friends and would settle their differences like friends do.

The said video had thousands of views on YouTube and Jim Iyke’s comment came a few weeks after the comedian’s channel was ranked as the number one most watched channel in Africa.

    Does jim iyke watch Saturday Night Live (SNL)? Does he see the way musicians, actors and other performers are roasted. Even the US president is not spared in their skits. Why not take a leaf from that and be able to laugh at these things once in a while instead of making a mountain from a mole hill all the time.

Published

on

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare has revealed that it will cost the ministry N81m to cut the grass and clear the weed that have taken over the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.

He stated this recently while speaking during the one-day seminar organised by the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) FCT chapter.

According to him, the ministry approached the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB) for assessment in the stadium, which was built in 2003 with N53 billion on a 29 hectares (72 acres) of land.

The stadium is divided into Package A which houses the Main Bowl and Package B which houses other facilities like basketball courts, NFF office, volleyball courts, tennis courts, squash courts.

“We approached AEPB to come see what can be done to clear the grass and weed in the stadium and they told us it will cost us N81m.

“If we tell Nigerians we used N81m which is not even available, there will be an outcry. The funds are not really there for us and that is why we are partnering with private investors to bring back the key components of our infrastructures,” he said.

Published

on

Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Leo Da Silva recently got internet users debating afte he waded into a conversation centered on men refusing to date women who are not financially stable.

A lady who disclosed that she’s a student, had tweeted;

I’ve seen tweets from guys saying they can’t date a girl that’s not financially stable. I’m a student. But never, like never have I felt attacked by such tweets. What’s actually up with some guys on Twitter? What I want must not make sense to you. It’s choice boo

Reacting to this, Leo stated that it’s a smart choice for young men to refuse to date jobless women. He added that guys should have their own preference just as women have theirs.

He tweeted in response;

Guys should have their own preference just as women have theirs. Dating someone that’s not working or doesn’t have adequate allowance is a burden. Nigeria, the poverty capital of the world, if a young man trying to come up refuses that burden, I think it’s a smart choice.
