We have all noticed those funny situations when a fan disses a celebrity and the celebrity curses the fan out in return; it doesn’t happen often but some celebrities are always known to fire back once they feel insulted.

Chukwugoziam Obi aka Emma Nyra, isn’t the most famous female star in Nigeria but she believes she can very well attain that status. She also says she can’t tolerate abusive comments on her social media handles.

When asked about her style, Emma said: –

“My style is sexy, classy and sporty. I like to wear clothes that fit. I am an artiste and I like to take risks. People always comment about my style, but they need to know that style is an expression of who you are. I read comments about myself on blogs, Twitter and Instagram and I delete the offensive ones”

Emma also said she’s on the verge on doing something great and counted among the top 5 female music stars.

“I am happy there are other female acts doing well because they are paving the way for other girls coming after us. Girls tell me all the time that they look up to me because I have done quite well within a short period of time. Before now, we didn’t know that women could make it big in the industry.

I am happy to be in their midst and I am not under any pressure whatsoever. When God says it is your time to make it, nothing can stop it. Oritsefemi has been in the game for nearly 10 years and he has only just made his mark. Music is all about timing, I think I am doing fine. Three years, I don’t feel like I am wasting time,”

When asked whether she’s in a relationship, she said “Yes, I am in a relationship and he is very supportive of my craft. He encourages me to ignore all the negative things being said about me.”

Emma also talked about her future plans. She said “I want to establish a foundation for kids. I plan to own a perfume, make-up brand and clothing line.”

#EndSARS: ‘Forces beyond my control shot at protesters in Lekki’, says Sanwo-Olu

Published

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered an immediate investigation into the shootings at Lekki, hours after he imposed a curfew in the state.

Men dressed in military gear opened fire on unarmed protesters at the Lekki toll gate around 7pm on Tuesday, October 20, leaving many dead, injured and hospitalised.

The lights and security cameras were turned off before the shootings began.

Members of the Nigerian army pulled up on us and they started firing. They were shooting, they were firing straight at us and a lot of people got hit. I just barely survived,” says Akinbosola Ogunsanya, who was at the scene of the incident.

The protesters have been calling for an end to police brutality since October 4; and had blocked the Lekki-Epe toll gate, Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge and other major roads in Lagos, while staging sit-in, candle-lit processions for victims of police brutality.

The protests had turned violent and fatal in Lagos and across the country, however, with hoodlums hijacking the marches and burning down police stations for effect.

Sanwo-Olu announced a 24-hour curfew at noon of October 20 in a bid to curtail the violence and halt the anarchy.

The governor initially announced that the curfew would commence at 4pm. This was later moved to 9pm.

The men in military gear opened fire on the unarmed protesters two hours before the curfew was billed to kick off.

Reports say at least 10 people died during the shooting.

Sanwo-Olu, who said he never gave the order, added that he’s visited the scene of the incident and hospitals.

This is the toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make dark notes in our history, but we will face it and come out stronger,” the governor said.

I’ve just concluded visits to hospitals with victims of this unfortunate shooting incident at Lekki.

“It has taken me this long to make a statement because I have to prioritize the welfare of the victims of this very sad incident.”

Sanwo-Olu also said he’s going to address residents of the state formally at dawn.

There are currently 10 patients at the General Hospital, 11 at Reddington and 4 at Vedic; with mild to moderate levels of injuries while 2 are receiving intensive medical care.

“3 patients have been discharged and we will continue to monitor and ensure all patients get the best care.

“As the governor of our state, I recognize the buck stops at my table and I will work with the federal government to get to the root of this unfortunate incident and stabilise all security operations to protect the lives of our residents.

“I will give a state broadcast in the morning,” he added.
