Mark Angel and Emmanuella have revealed in a chat with NAIJ.NG that a company once offered to buy their Facebook page for $400,000.
According to Mark Angel, the money when converted to Naira was worth over N100 million as at the time he got the offer. However, a quick conversion showed that the money was worth N144,000,000.
Mark Angel said he declined the offer because it’s not all about money adding that “money cannot buy what we do”.
He further stressed that “you can sell it and start again but there are people who can only get a laugh through that channel and by selling it, you will deny them that chance”.
“Recently, a company wanted to buy out our Facebook page. I thought it as a scam but this company is well known and they offered us $400,000 when I converted it to Naira, it was more than N100million (N144m). My first thought was ‘guys lets sell it.’
“But we can’t sell it because it’s not all about money. Money cannot buy what we do. If you think about it, you can sell it and start again but there are people who can only get a laugh through that channel and by selling it, you will deny them that chance,” Mark Angel said.
He made this revelation in an exclusive interview with Naija.ng.
Mark Angel also said their skit had prevented an African president from taking a rash decision that would have affected his country.
“There was an African president who told us we saved him from taking a rash decision that would have affected his country. We were invited for dinner and we did not know why we were invited until he shared his testimony with us, Mark Angel said”.
Talking about why they shot their videos in Port Harcourt. He said,
“To work in Lagos is very hard. If you want to start shooting, agbero’s will come and start demanding outrageous sums of money from you. There was a time we were asked to pay N170, 000 settling these touts before we were allowed to shoot. That’s why we shoot in PH and market our skits in Lagos”.
However, seven-year-old Emmanuella who became famous for her hilarious roles in the Mark Angel series said she wants to be a make-up artiste
“I want to be a makeup artiste in future. Because I want to beautify people’s face. I also want to be a dancer”.

OAP Toolz Recounts How Almost Everyone In Her Home Tested Positive For COVID-19
Media personality, Tolu Demuren alias Toolz, has narrated how she and the members of her household tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.
The on-air personality, in a string of tweets, mentioned that she was mainly concerned about her two children but fortunately, they did not contract the virus. Toolz also revealed that they have all fully recovered in her home.
In her words;
“Feeling super thankful to God today! This time last month, we were going through a very scary period! Almost everyone in our house (including myself) tested positive for Covid-19.
I was just about to return to work after my maternity, and it all started with Captain complaining of ‘malaria-like’ symptoms. He had them for a few days, and didn’t seem to get any better…so we ended up taking him to hospital.
He had taken a Covid-19 test a few days before which was negative, so I thought it was a bad case of malaria. He was admitted with malaria and a bacterial infection we were told. After being given intravenous antibiotics and other meds he still wasn’t getting better.
I decided to move him to a different hospital, and they tested again, and he ‘blew up’ the test according to the doctor. My body went cold, and my first thought was ‘OMG the babies!!’. Then a short while later, I thought about myself. I did a rapid test, and it was positive.
Neither of us initially had the common symptoms- no coughing, no breathing issues…although I later lost my smell and taste. Captain was in hospital for a week and this was around the time of the Lekki shooting, so I was doubly terrified.
My main fear was the babies…especially our youngest son as he was just about 3 months old. We didn’t test them, but I was certain they had Covid too as we literally kiss and cuddle our boys every day. The doctor assured us that they wouldn’t be affected.
Thank God the doctor was right, other than a sneeze here & there, our babies were perfectly fine. I was generally ok too, just scared. Once you get that positive result, you get all these random symptoms you didn’t have before. My back would hurt…I’d be like hmmm corona oo
The weirdest thing was the taste and smell thing. Everything Captain had tasted bad, he’s a foodie so that was strange. One of my super powers is my sense of smell…and it just gradually faded. I actually put a bottle of bleach under my nose one day and…nothing.
I kept waiting to fall ill, and it didn’t happen. I started thinking I had indaboski blood, but then I had 2 days where I felt like I had the worst hangover in the world, then there was some fatigue, but I was generally ok.
Captain on the other hand felt super rundown, couldn’t keep food down, had cramping all over and a bunch of other symptoms. After a week, he came back home, and we finished our isolation period together.
After 2 weeks we all retested and were all thankfully Negative. Thanks to Almighty God for seeing us through, a big thank you to the doctors that looked after us… especially Dr Majekodunmi of Eurocare for the constant reassurance, and for taking my a million and one calls.
I’m super thankful I didn’t get it while I was pregnant. Imagine I travelled to have my baby, came back, did a 7 covid tests, and it was the 8th that was positive. The craziest thing was that a week before I legit told someone that there’s Covid in Lagos anymore. Silly me”, she concluded.

‘Many Christians Speak In Tongues But It’s Hard To Find Interpreters’ – Uti Nwachukwu
Popular media personality, Uti Nwachukwu, has come for Christians who speak in tongues without interpreters. The ex BBA winner took to his official Twitter account to state that he finds it weird that a lot of Christians speak in tongues without anyone to interpret the tongues, stating that it is contrary to what is in the Bible.
His tweet reads:
“I find it sooo weird that a LOT of Christians speak in tongues, But till today I have not met ONE person that can interprete the tongues. Afterall the Bible (1 Cor 12 V10) says Holy Spirit gifts some with tongues and others with interpretation? Where are the INTERPRETERS?”
