Moet Abebe Speaks About First Acting Experience

Published

on

Moet Abebe in an interview with Thenationonline has said she sees no reason why people should refer her as a bad girl because she wears bikinis. She also talked about her supposed s*x tape, stating that a lot of people have been spreading false lies about a non-existing tape and if they have the link, they should go ahead to post it.

 

This is your first experience as an actress. What was it like for you?

It was very different and working on TV is obviously a completely different ball game. People do say that presenters naturally have this acting flair. But being a presenter, you always have to, in a sense, show who you are. You have to be real because you have to shine. But when you are an actress, you have to play the part. You have to be a different character; so, it was awesome. It was a bit challenging, but it was a very interesting experience.

 

As one who is known for being on TV, did you have to go through a transition process?

did because as I said, it was a completely different ball game. Understanding how the production works was completely different from TV; so, I had to go through that process of realising that if a camera is in a particular position, you have to face that way. But for TV, it is just head on straight to the camera; they are very different worlds.

 

You played the role of a bad girl on campus. How challenging was it?

 

Honestly, I would like to say that Tiwa was, in a sense, like my alter ego. So, it wasn’t necessarily a new thing for me to be a bit of a tough bad girl; and at the same time, it was different for me because I’ve never really had relationship issues like that. So, I kind of relate to the feistiness and the restiveness of the character, Tiwa. I can completely relate to that.

 

 

In the real world, are you comfortable being tagged a bad girl?

It depends on the sense in which people call me that. If it is in that Tiwa sense, then, the answer is no because that is an entirely different thing. That is why I said people kept on telling me that my personality and everything about me is very different from Tiwa. I’ve never had issues that I had to run over to my boyfriend’s house and start causing a scene. If you look at it that way, then, it is no. But if it’s the whole being a bad girl who stands up for what she believes in and for what she stands for, then, yes, I am a bad girl.

 

There are people who would argue about that…

 

(Cuts in) In what sense?

 

In the sense of what they hear about you. For instance, you have repeatedly been pictured almost nu*de…

 

(Cuts in) How does wearing a bikini make me a bad girl? Well, they need to go and study the dictionary and realise what a bad girl really is. Someone like Rihana can be termed a bad girl, but Moet Abebe is not a bad girl.

 

You were once involved in a scandal concerning a s*x tape

Have you seen it? Exactly! So, that is your answer. I have never posted anything like a s*x tape on the Internet. At the end of the day, as far as there is no link, there is no evidence of a s*x tape. People will always talk and I have learnt to live with that.

 

How do you react when you hear such news?

 

I guess you could ask the same question. How do they live with such news that they spread about other people?

 

She also spoke about who she is…

 

Who is Moet Abebe?

 

Moet Abebe is a girl, who is very driven and focused by what she wants to achieve in life. She is a hard worker. She is the kind of person who is always going to accept when she is wrong and always tries to get better at what she does.

 

Is Moet your real name?

My name is Laura Monyeazo Abebe.

 

Where are you from?

My father is from Edo State, while my mother is from Imo State.

 

Are you related to the late ex-First Lady, Mrs. Stella Obasanjo?
Yes, I am related to her.

#EndSARS: Ekiti state government declares 24-hour curfew

Published

on

Following the various attacks on #EndSARS protesters in the state, Governor Kayode Fayemi has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state effective from 10pm on today, Tuesday, October 20.

In a statement released by the Secretary to the State Government, Biodun Oyebanji, the state government said the curfew became necessary following the state government’s observation of how the end SARS protest, which started as a peaceful protest against police brutality by youths in Ekiti State, has been hijacked by some hoodlums.

Read the statement below

1. The Government of Ekiti State has observed with growing concern how the ENDSARS protest, which started as a peaceful protest against police brutality by youths in Ekiti State, has been hijacked by some hoodlums.

2. The hoodlums have capitalised on the ENDSARS protest to rape, assault, rob and extort innocent citizens across the State. These are in addition to the wanton destruction of properties, particularly private properties.

3. Government is concerned that if this state of affairs is allowed to continue unabated, it will lead to a breakdown of law and order thereby threatening the wellbeing of the people of Ekiti State.

4. For the purpose of clarity Government continues to show understanding and responsiveness to the demands of the legitimate protesters.

5. On 16th October 2020, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi, Governor, Ekiti State met with the protesters in person. While identifying with the legitimacy of their protests, he assured them that the State Government will immediately put measures in place to respond to all their demands.

6. Government has since then constituted a Human Rights Investigation Panel to review all cases of abuse by Officers of the disbanded SARS. In addition, Government has enabled a Victims Compensation Fund to facilitate speedy remedial measures for victims of such abuse.

7. Furthermore, several officials of Government have engaged the protesters at multiple fora and platforms including the social media in order to ensure that concerns of protesters are properly identified and responded to in a prompt and efficient manner with necessary feedback.

8. Government had also at various times drawn the attention of the protesters to the troubling hijack of the protests by individuals whose only interest is to inflict violence on the people of the state.

9. In the past 48 hours there have been incidents of gang-rape, robberies, physical assaults on innocent people, looting and burning of a police station. These acts of brigandage are not in consonance with the legitimate aspirations of the protesters. It cannot be logical to seek to remedy impunity with impunity.

10. Government therefore cannot afford to watch a deliberate enthronement of anarchy by some bad elements who have hijacked the protest for some clandestine reasons.

11. Consequently, the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, hereby imposes a 24-hour curfew on all parts of the State starting from 10.00 pm tonight, Tuesday, October, 20, 2020.

12. Only essential workers and service providers with valid means of identifications are allowed to move around during the period of the curfew.

13. Any person found on the street that does not belong to this category, would be promptly arrested and prosecuted according to the laws of Ekiti State.

14. We seek the understanding of the good people of Ekiti State as we continue to take deliberate steps towards ensuring that peace and normalcy return to our state.”

Nigerian superstar, Davido has said criminals are responsible for the attack on two Correctional Centres in Benin City, Edo State.

Davido made the claim while absolving End SARS protesters of involvement in the attacks.

The singer pointed out that no amount of mischief would stop the protest against police brutality and bad governance.

Davido made the remark while condemning the attack on two Correctional Centres in Benin City, Edo State.

The hoodlums had attacked the facilities and freed some inmates.

Reacting, the singer in a series of tweets wrote: “After seeing all that’s gone on today I just want to say that from the beginning we have preached that the protest must remain peaceful and Law Abiding and as far as I know we have kept to that! And we will continue to keep to that so the narrative can NOT be switched up on us!

“The people they claim broke into prisons to free convicted criminals, burn police stations to steal weapons, damage police, government, and private vehicles are Criminals and everybody must condemn these acts. They are not part of our movement !

“#EndSars is a peaceful and law abiding protest that is going somewhere great! And no mischief can scatter it!”
