How Marriage failure traced to Ubi Franklin depression?

Image result for Ubi FranklinAs gist about popular show business promoter and chief executive of TripleMG, Ubi Franklin revealed, he shocked his fans and friends alike on Thursday when he shared a personal secret on the social media.

Ubi, in a statement posted on his Instagram account, recounted how, between July 2016 and March 2017, he struggled hard to overcome bouts of depression that nearly pushed him to commit suicide.

During that period, he noted, his life took a turn for the worse and he practically lost control of his actions.

“I was quite depressed and it became so bad that my life began to deteriorate so much that I literally couldn’t eat nor sleep and other members of my family and my close friends became really scared,” he said.

Ubi said that he was in such a bad shape emotionally that he paid regular visits to the hospital in search of a solution to his depression. Also, he kept on showing up at events looking lost and drained. But he was only just pretending that everything was alright and nothing was wrong with him.

The music promoter added that at the peak of his struggle to shake off depression, he decided to indulge himself by purchasing a state-of-the art car that he had always dreamed of. But the strategy failed. “I had thought that the depression would stop at this point, but, to my dismay, it didn’t. Even after I finished paying for my mortgage, it grew worse,” he wrote.

On his way home from work one Saturday night, Ubi recalled, his head was filled with thoughts of suicide. The urge to take his life had suddenly become quite strong. But he managed to shrug it off by thinking about his son’s welfare and future.

“I was so scared and all I kept saying and asking myself was ‘Who will take care of my son? I got home and started acting in a funny manner. My security guard had already turned on the generator. I screamed at him to turn it off that I needed some peace and quiet. I was in that dark house all by myself and everything was falling part,” he said.

Acknow-ledging the role played by members of his family and his close friends towards his recovery, Ubi said they did a lot to lift up his spirit in his dark moments. But the real solution to his predicament came when he finally realised that he was carrying a “baggage” and all that he needed to do was pray his way out of depression.

Advising his fans, friends and colleagues to fight depression with prayers, he wrote, “Brothers and sisters, I want to admonish you today to pray fervently . Don’t let anything or the Devil to break you. I assure you that some things won’t matter after some time.”

Although Ubi did not mention it in his post, some Nigerians have speculated that his encounter with depression was remotely triggered by the breakup of his marriage to Nollywood actress Lilian Esoro. Although they got married in November, 2015, the union only lasted a year.

HOW D TUNES STOLE SEAN TIZZLE FROM ME – ACE CLUB PROMOTER, AJE SHOLE

IMG-20170627-WA0003

Aje Entertainment C E O, Olayinka Olayide Ojelere, better known in the entertainment family as Aje, has revealed that top music producer; D Tunes stole D Tunes from him.

In an exclusive interview with Fujipop Online Magazine bared his mind on
how he found his feet in the otherwise very competitive entertainment
industry and other sundry issues.

Read Excerpts on www.Fujiipop.com

Could you tell us little about your family background?
I was raised in a very good Christian family background. We’re six in
number and I am the last child of the family.  My dad got married to
only my mom.
Can you tell us about how it all started, talking about artistes promotion and club management
I think the origin of it all can be attributed to the fact that I am the kind of person that loves music, I love to enjoy life, I love going out, I love party. I love music so much though I knew I can’t sing but I know I can put things together to help those around me who can sing by putting events that would help them showcase their talents and at the same time help me feel fulfilled in a way. So while in school then
I was having shows in school, organize my friends together because I had these set of friends then who we all hang out, interestingly one of us could sing very well so while he would be singing we would be drumming on the school desk, we were actually using it to catch fun I never knew I was actually building my future career in that line. People began to take notice of me and from there I got the
opportunity to work at a club, interestingly my boss then, that is Mr.Mike Onobuwa, the CEO of Sidewalk and Zigis at Magodo was also into
entertainment business so he used to bring in so many artistes then and a curious person I would be asking questions like ‘who is this
one, who is that one’ to know the artistes because back then it was only few artistes that were really popular. So later after I had
stopped working there I began getting offers from some unknown artistes who started to come to me for help. They would like ‘I’m an
artist I live in the neighborhood, I want you to help me and all that stuff. So one day I sat down and said to myself that this is an opportunity, I can put this people together and make something out of it and that was exactly what happened. So from there started putting all these artistes together, I will organize shows, collect there songs, listen to it, next thing they are performing on my platforms, I will host them in clubs, create shows and invite them, that was how I started getting stronger in the industry and since then I have worked with so many top artistes in the Nigerian music industry.

D'Tunes dtunes
Can you tell us about some of the artistes you’ve worked with?
When I started then there was a little boy I managed then, his name was Dammy, I managed him for some times but he was in school, and because he was in school then it was a bit difficult so I called him one day and said: ‘look bro, I don’t think I can continue, I want to
move on’. So I dropped him and moved on, and from there I discovered and managed Sean Tizle when no one believed he could become who he is today. I recall how I met Sean, it was at one club I was managing then at Ajayi Road, Ogba called Club Trace, and it was the opening of the
club, the main invited artistes were Sound Sultan and DJ Humility, so I met Sean through the opening of the club I manage and we talked. I could remember he said to me, my name is Sean, I live at Ikorodu and I am the back up singer for Sound Sultan. I must say that
Sean is one talented artist that I love so much, he has the voice, he has the swag, he has the look and he is humble. So I drew him closer
and we became very close friends and rolling around then because my boss gave me a car to be moving around with, so Sean and I with one
other friend, we call him Dangote but his real name is Ahmed, together we will go to other clubs in town to see how they were doing things
and to also find out somethings they were doing that we needed to learn and adopt in our own club. So that was how I became Sean’s
manager. I could remember the day I called him and asked him tell me his preferred producer that he would like to produce his song because
then I had made up my mind to take him to the next level and like I told him that day, this is the time for you to blow. And he said
that he knows a producer called D tunes, he said that Dtunes has been his friend but has grown big in the industry meaning that his charges
would be high, we made enquiry and booked an appointment with D Tunes at Lekki, we got there and I paid D Tunes to produce a hit song for Sean and that was how he produced the song, Shole. That song,shole was his first ever official track and it was paid for by me.
That was how the Sean Tizzle story started and I am very glad that I was part of the success story. Again that was also how I stopped
managing Sean till date, though we are still friends and brothers.

My Relationship With Former President Olusegun Obasanjo-Alex Ozone

The name ‘Alex Ozone’ is practically one of the most popular names in the Nigerian entertainment and social circle. The CEO of O3media who is believed to be the engine room of most successful Nigerian artistes in this first batch of his no holds bared interview with Fujipop Online Magazine, beared his mind on the state of the Nigerian nation. He also cleared the air on his relationship with former Nigerian President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and other issues.
IMG_0927_filteredxRecently you posted a picture and a video clip of you and former President
Olusegun Obasanjo in a flight, what is your connection and relationship with the former Nigerian leader?
You see, I actually wanted to pass a message particularly to the
Nigerian youth through that my little encounter with Chief Obasanjo, I used the term ‘little’ because it wasn’t a major. As an aspiring Entrepreneur, as
an artist, as a young person, whoever you are,  what a ever you want to
do or be, they say opportunity comes but once. So when you see an
opportunity don’t fail to grab it no matter the obstacle you might
face. What I did there was to pass a message to our youths to take a
good advantage of the opportunities that comes their ways no matter
what. No matter who the person is, if you feel he is who you really
desire to meet please go ahead, he may bless you, he may cures you but
the most important thing for you is to play your own part which is to
take the bold step to approach him, and also be ready and willing to accept whatever the outcome of that your step. But most importantly never fail to cleared your conscience because if you
don’t, one day you will look back and regret not taking your chances.
Meeting Obasanjo for me was an ordinary thing because it was not
actually major, it was not planned, we were just on the same flight returning to Nigeria,
and when I saw him I observed that no one was going to meet him or exchange pleasantries probably they were scared or something. Image result for alex ozone picture with obasanjoThough
initially I was like, what is baba doing here? because ordinarily baba
was supposed to be rolling with private jet as former president. So I got up from my seat and
approached him. When I got him I simply said, ‘baba o’ and he said ‘’how are you’’ I
responded and introduced myself as Alex Ozone of O3 Media, from there
we started talking. Obasanjo I must say is really a nice and jovial person. In the
course of our discussion he asked me what I do,  I told him that I am into
entertainment business, and that coming back from tour with my artist, from there I  introduced Skales, in fact it was Skales that actually informed in the
first place that OBJ was in the plane with us, I introduced him and also his
manager and his producer too. Of course I’m the promoter. Baba said
‘really?‘’ I said yes, then he asked ”what work is now left for me, can I be the distributor”? I
said of course. From there we chatted all through the journey back home. Of
course we snapped pictures and exchanged contacts, it was a very nice
and pleasant experience for all us on the flight.IMG_1108_filtered Have you tried to contact or approach him for any favors since you came back?
Not really, I am also important in my
own right, so when I need baba I will reach out to him but for now I
will not want to abuse the privilege he gave me by calling him
unnecessarily. I survive through myself, I
hustle, I work hard for myself, for my family for the Nigerian youth, and
for the general society. I help push and positively project the
image of Nigeria to the outside world through my work. So when I need
person in the capacity and position of Obasanjo, why not, I will approach
him.
Based on that experience with Chief Obasanjo, what would you like the youths
to learn from it?
My message to everybody out there, not just the youths, though the
youths are my primary constituency, is that they must believe
in themselves. Self confidence leads to so many good things in life,
you must believe that nobody is better than you, you must believe that
nobody is bigger than you, you must believe that you can achieve
whatever you set out to achieve.Image result Obama is the next person I really
want to chill with and it will surely happen soon.
Looking at the general society and the polity, what do you think
of Nigeria, is this the Nigeria your dream?
My brother nothing is working in this country I won’t tell you lies.
In fact, Nigeria feeds me with pain and sorrow whenever I come back
into this country. Right from the airport nothing is really working
here. Hunger everywhere, suffering everywhere, anguish, pain,
frustration all over the place. Its no longer funny, they promised us
change but the way it appears now it seems we are now in chains, it is
even so funny that nobody is talking about this, we all travel outside
this country, we see how things are done over there, but rather than come
back and do what is right to help our people, we will be doing the
opposite. They promised us change and nobody is asking questions, what
is happening to the change. Is this the change they promised us? What
is happening? Why is no one asking questions? No electricity, no food,
no job, nothing and everyone pretends as if though all is well.IMG_0808_filteredx

I have
been reading about the increased cases of suicide and suicide attempt
in Nigeria, and it’s becoming so alarming. How did we get ourselves to this
position? Why is no one talking? If want to come back to Nigeria sometimes I will become agitated and filled with anxiety because I know what I
would be coming back to face. I know the kind of suffering and
frustration I would be coming back into.
Don’t you think the poor health condition of President Muhammadu
Buhari is part of the reason things have not really worked as they
should?
The president’s health has got nothing to do with what is going on in
Nigeria because it has always been like this. The president is just an
individual, he has his cabinet and runs the affairs of the country
through these cabinet members, so the president illness does not stop
his ministers from working, or is all the ministers, heads all
departments also sick? Must the country be grounded because Mr.
President is sick? Don’t we have vice president again? What is he
doing? The problem is not the health of Mr. President, the problem is
actually those who are working with Mr. President. Take for example, I
have been away for some time now in Europe and my office is still
functioning because I put capable hands in place. We Nigerians need to
start thinking outside the box because these so called politicians are
like wolves, the only thing they think about is how to feed themselves
and their families and make themselves comfortable. I even feel pity
for some youths out there who are killing themselves and destroying
the little they have because of these politicians who doesn’t care
about them. Look, these people only care about themselves, check out
the recent the wedding ceremony of the daughter of former head of
state, Ibrahim Babangida, all these people both from the north, south,
east and west, they all gathered, they were all smiling as they merry
but the poor masses were shut out because that place is not for them.
Then you will see these poor masses marching the streets, killing one
another because of their collective enemies, and that to me is the
irony of life for you. Look, we must rise up and say to these people,
you promised us change, where is the change? We must do something, we
must say enough is enough. Buhari is not the issue here unless we want
to deceive ourselves. Anyone can fall sick, I can for sick and my
office will still be running because everybody have got their jobs to
do, everyone has got their role to play.IMG_0863_filteredx
Based on what you have just said, are you by any means trying to say
that those Mr. President have chosen to help him run the affairs of
the country are not capable of doing the job?
They are all capable but they don’t want to do the job, they are
selfish. They always want to blame someone else for their failure. You
have to own up to your responsibility, that way you can be able to
evaluate your progress. Minister of power must own up to his
responsibility, the minister of Agriculture must own up to his
responsibility, minister of Sports must own up to his responsibility
and so on. The reason the previous person was removed and you put in
that place is for things to change and work for better. Not for you to come
back to us every now and then with excuse of how the previous man did not
do it therefore the thing cannot be done. To match Interview NIGERIA-BUHARI/So why are you there? If the
previous man had done it then there wouldn’t have been a reason  to
change him and put you there in the first place. Minister of works
must make sure that the roads are in order, minister of agriculture
must make sure there is food, minister of power have to make sure
there is electricity, that is why they put them there, they were not
put there to come and be giving us excuses or blaming another person
who was there before them. You don’t blame your predecessor for your
failure. Because your predecessor failed doesn’t mean you must
fail too.IMG_0927_filteredx
Do you think Nigerians made a mistake by
electing this administration into power?
Don’t misquote me here, nobody made a mistake but we Nigerians don’t
want to face challenges, we don’t want to face reality. You elected
somebody and that person should take responsibility, that is all I’m
saying. The person should deliver on his promises, not blaming another
person for his shortcomings. We elected you because we felt the other
person was not delivering, now you are there rather than deliver even
on your own promises you’re blaming the other person for not
delivering. How do you want to progress by blaming your passed
leaders? You only move forward by making a difference, you move
forward by setting aside ethnic, tribe and religious sentiment. Look,
we don’t ask for too much o, the only thing we ask for is electricity,
communication and good roads, that is all and we can survive. A person
like me all I need is my phone, once I have my phone I can do so many
things and make money, likewise many Nigerians. We don’t ask for much.
With the way things are now in Nigeria, if President Buhari present himself for elective post would you still vote him in?
I will vote for you In fact I want you to come out. Do you know why I
will vote for you? Because you’re a youth, the power belong to the
youths. Again because you’ve gone through what we’re going through you
will understand the pain of the common man on the street,and when you
get there though you will want to make yourself comfortable, still you
will remember where you are coming from and the plight of those you
left behind. Another reason I will vote for you is because I can
challenge you when you are no longer doing what you should do, but all
these big men over there, I can’t challenge them because they’ve
criminally enriched themselves and surrounded themselves with security
that we the people can no longer reach them. But as a youth, I believe
we share the same view and ideology and you understand where I am
coming from, so I will vote for you.Image result for alex ozone picture with obasanjo

Football: Nigerian teenage sensation, Henry Onyekuru signs for Everton in £6.8million deal

Image result for Henry OnyekuruAs it was reported, Nigerian striker, Henry Onyekuru, has signed for English Premier League club Everton FC in a £6.8million deal. The 20-year-old who has been on Arsenal radar for a while made the announcement on Instagram that he has signed with Everton ahead of the 2017-18 season.’

So happy to sign for Everton #thankful #everton,’ he wrote.

Henry Onyekuru, a former Eupen star who was born in Onitsha finished last season as the joint leading scorer in the Belgian Super League with 22 goals in 38 games – 10 of those came in the final 10 games – and attracted the attention of a number of top clubs across Europe as a result.

Trending: Why Evans sued Police

Image result for billionaire kidnapperIt has been reported that the suspected billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, a.k.a. Evans, hours ago filed a fundamental rights enforcement action before the Lagos Federal High Court in Lagos, urging the court to order the police to charge him to court or release him immediately.

Joined as respondents in the said suit marked FHC/L/CS/1012/2017 are the Nigeria Police Force, Commissioner of Police, Lagos State and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos State Police Command,  in the suit filed on his behalf by a Lagos-based lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, the suspected kidnapper is seeking a court order directing the respondents to immediately charge him to court if they had any case against him in accordance with sections 35 (1) (c) (3) (4) (5) (a) (b) and 36 of the Constitution.

He is on the alternative seeking for an order compelling the respondents to immediately release him unconditionally in the absence of any offence that will warrant his being charged to court.

Evans is contending that his continued detention by the respondents since June 10, 2017, without being charged to court or released on bail was an infringement on his fundamental human rights.

Ogungbeje argued that the respondents ought to have charged Evans to court in accordance with the provisions of sections 35 and 36 of the Constitution.

He further argued that the alleged offence committed by Evans were correspondingly intertwined with the constitutional safeguards as provided under sections 35 and 36 of the Constitution.

In a 27-paragraph affidavit in support of the motion deposed to by Evan’s father, Stephen Onwuamadike, it was averred that the applicant had been subjected to media trial without any court’s order by the respondents.
