I saw the press release and I am still laughing...laughing because you did the right thing by standing up to defend yourself but you used the wrong words and you focused on the wrong topic. I was not the only blog who broke that story, in fact I was the second person who broke the story and the other blog has other details you might also choose to respond to..check www.bononline.tv
The story there is as follows: ''When you see Nuella Njubigbo ride in her Toyota Highlander, please know that it is Rivers state tax payers money moving in action as it was a gift from Rivers Governor Rotimi Amaechi for all the love she has been showering on him since they met coincidentally through a desperate businessman looking from patronage from the Governor.
Bononline gathered that Nuella met Governor Amaechi when a Desperate Contractor who had heard several tales of Gov Amaechi sex orgy with Nollywood stars including being a major contributing factor to the collapse of the marriage of a Big Nollywood star who also fell apart from her friend who is a divorcee and has a record of being Nollywood serial lover who went behind her to sleep with the deep pocket Governor. The plan between the contractor and Nuella was for her to hook the Governor during the presentation and thereafter help convince the Governor to go on with deal, Plan A worked well as the Governor liked Nuella and they exchanged numbers but plan B completely failed as Nuella just hooked on to the Governor and forgot the contractor, we learnt that part of the goodies Nuella had benefited from Gov Amaechi is her Toyota Highlander taken from the pool of cars which
was supposed to be given to Government officials and she reportedly got 5m late November.
Twice she has also been on the Govt delegation Aboard.''
I will tender my apology at the end of this memo no doubt but first I want to tackle some issues that you pointed out in your press release. Note that my response has nothing to do with ''pulling you down further'', I am only trying one last attempt like a drowning fish to rescue my name that you called out in your release....I want to state here categorically that I am not a babalawo, hence your
reference to ''the writers concoction of lies was a misfire''.
Let me start from the beginning.
I am so sorry for not contacting you before I released my story concerning you and the South-South Governor, I guess that was a misfire on my side but the thing is I am tired of the lies told by you and your ilk when called to confirm a story...biko forgive me for that.
I never claimed or wrote anywhere that Nuella lives in the east with a Nollywood producer. I reported last year that Actress Nuella was in a neck deep in a relationship with movie producer Tchidi Chikere and that he had moved out of his home into hers. They came out with a press release denying that anything of such was happening. I hinted that the actress may be pregnant and her flat tummy proved me wrong.
The publicist of that press release confirmed that relationship and even said the producers wife was the reason her marriage crashed, the publicist also corrected me that Nuella was not pregnant.
Before I broke the report of Nuella's affair with Tchidi which was an open secret, they had been dating for many months before the report and Tchidi was a known face at her abode in
Lagos. The second man I reported she dated was international footballer Emmanuel.... whom she
visited briefly in Russia. If she claims she did not go to Russsia to drink tea then so be
it, but thank God she did not break the footballer's relationship to someone else. I quote ''The writer should be bold enough to say publicly what axe she has to grind with Nuella rather than hide behind the noble profession of journalism to execute her cheap hatchet job. An open declaration of her true intentions will probably confer on her some measure of respect which she desperately needs to salvage her dwindling career fortunes.
Journalism is not for rumour mongers. We know it is her stock in trade to blackmail rising
stars and 'A-listers' who are mostly her friends until they come and pay 'homage'. We won't be blackmailed under any circumstance.''
This is my Response to this below the belt comment towards me.
