People Who Bashed Me For My Joke On Power Supply Are Stupid –Dee One

Published

on

Comedian, Dee One, was dragged online during the week after he uploaded a video in which he argued that Nigerians did not deserve to have 24-hour electricity supply.However, he told Sunday Scoop that he was just joking.

He said, “It was sarcasm. There is nobody that doesn’t need electricity. Those bashing me for that post are very stupid because I’m not the government. If they want to bash anybody, it should be the government. I always tell people to use their gifts to address serious issues. Poor electricity supply is a very big problem in Nigeria and it’s part of the things setting us back. If people can channel their frustrations to the government with the same vigour (they attacked me online), I believe things will be much better. It’s only in Nigeria that we take comedians seriously and we take politicians as jokers.

“Trending on the Internet doesn’t give one money; it just puts you out there. And if it puts you out there, it then depends on what you’re able to do with the attention.”

Speaking on his relationship with fellow Big Brother ex-housemates, Dee one said, “I am cool with all of them. Friends will always fight, but after that, we try to reach a common ground and move forward. Personally though, I am done with all that Big Brother drama; that era has passed. Right now, I want to be known and addressed as a comedian, not as a former BBN contestant.”

Responding to people who say that he is not funny, he said, “I can bet that most people who say I am not funny have never seen me perform. I just did my stand-up comedy show and everyone who attended had a good time. Many people just talk based on what they see online. Meanwhile, I cannot be funny to everybody. I have my target audience. I am not the type of comedian that would give free jokes on the Internet. It is business for me. If I put out my content for free, why then does anybody have to pay to watch me? These days, every Tom, Dick and Harry can be found on the Internet claiming to be comedians and giving materials away. However, I don’t blame them because I know they are looking for publicity. But, for someone like me, who already has the publicity, I don’t need all that. I was a professional before I went into the Big Brother House. Big Brother did not pay me to do jokes, so I abided by the rules and regulations of the game. It’s sad that these days, people are used to getting free things. My advice to people who think I’m not funny is that they should come and watch me. I run a comedy club alongside Omobaba and SLK, and I’ve been doing it for five years.”

School teacher reportedly flees after allegedly flogging his student to death in Lagos

Published

In what will come across as a really shocking development, a Twitter user has accused a Lagos teacher of killing his brother.

The man alleged that a Lagos teacher beat his junior brother to death over the boy’s failure to correctly answer a question asked of him during their mathematics session.

The man, whose Twitter handle identified him as Ridwan Oyewunmi, on Friday narrated the incident, which he claimed involved one Elihans College in the Ikorodu area of Lagos.

He said the school authorities had made them believe the young boy, whom he identified as Boluwatife Omelaja, had slumped and died while attempting to answer a question in the front of the classroom.

“I just lost my brother to School Teacher Brutality. Mr. Emmanuel is a sec school teacher at Elihans college, Ikorodu in Lagos,” Oyewunmi wrote in a Twitter thread.

“He beat up my brother Boluwatife Omelaja (frame 2) to death on the 26th of November on the school premises because he couldn’t answer a math question he was asked correctly.

“The school initially made us believe he slumped and died while he was trying to answer the question on the board, a boy who wasn’t ill or showed any sign of sickness before.

“He was brought home in the school’s bus by the school proprietress and principal, along with Mr. Emma-whom we didn’t know was the killer at that time, and he was buried a few hours later according to the Muslims doctrine.”

Oyewunmi also said the principal conveyed the boy’s corpse with the school bus to his parents’ home.

He, however, added that one Lateef Omelaja, the deceased’s sibling, “who was prevented from leaving the school,” later returned and narrated what he claimed transpired.

“Meanwhile Bolu’s other brother, Lateef Omelaja was prevented from leaving the school premises, in order to prevent him from spreading the true news to us at home and to buy Mr. Emma more time to run away,” he added.

“We believed the cock and bull story the school fed us not until Lafeef got home at around 5 pm and narrated what really happened at the school to us.

“We also confirmed this from other students of the school including classmates of Boluwatife.

“The painful part is, the school keeps trying to cover up for Mr. Emma claiming he didn’t beat Bolu. Mr. Emma is on the run, nowhere to be found.

“I know no amount of punishment for him will bring back my brother but I just want Mr. Emma located and justice served.”

As of when this report was filed, TheCable Lifestyle has reached out to the school involved to hear its side of the story.
