GOTW: Tonto-Kpokpogri messy breakup; Bobrisky-Mompha dating claims; BBNaija weekly recap

Major happenings in the entertainment industry are summarised in the Gists-Of-The-Week.

• September 26, 2021

Estranged celebrity couple Tonto Dike and Prince Kpokpogri continued their messy breakup as they washed their dirty linens in public during the week.

Following the duo’s unfortunate separation over infidelity allegations from both sides, Tonto’s legal team took action against Kpokpogri on the grounds of blackmail. They alleged he threatened to release her nude pictures.

“After listening to these leaked voice notes between Joseph Egbri (fake name Prince Kpokpogri) and Merit, I personally called my relationship off with a man I honestly did love,” Tonto explained on her Instagram page.

“Now this is not enough for blackmail and lies but it’s all good and great. Respectfully, all we are asking is come answer to the law for your illegal recording and release of my private moments (a crime) that happened months back before I actually respectfully ended this relationship, extortion(a crime), blackmail(a crime) amongst other things alleged about you,” she added.

She proceeded to publicly alert married Instagram influencer, Jane Mena, of her numerous “sex tapes” in possession of Kpokpogri.

“This may be a good time to say @janemena this man has so much of your sex tapes with him in his possession (old and very recent) not just you but a lot of other married women, celebrities and single girls too If he hasn’t blackmailed any of you yet, it’s a matter of time” she said.

However, Kpokpogri debunked Tonto’s claims and labelled them completely false.

Just as the public thought that the shocking revelations were over, Bobrisky’s ex-PA Kyme Oye breaks the internet during an Instagram question and answer session as she indicated that her ex-boss was in a relationship with business mogul Ismaila Mustapha, a.k.a Mompha.

Reacting to the news, Bobrisky quickly debunked, saying “This thing never happened. Mompha and I are only friends. Nothing is happening. This is the last time I’m going to say this, Mompha and I are just friends and nothing more,” he said.

Before now, the crossdresser who occasionally claims to have a boyfriend expresses affection to the business mogul by posting his picture on his verified Instagram page with questionable emojis.

However, Bobrisky says his relationship with the business mogul is extremely platonic.

Moving forward, Mompha threatened to sue Ms Oye if she failed to apologise for her “false” claims.

Oye has now publicly apologised.

As the BBNaija Season 6 approaches the end, some housemates are already exclusively part of the season’s most reputable top 5.

Emmanuel, Cross, and Liquorose were exempted from eviction this week following the ultimate veto power exercise that was won by Emmanuel, who made the executive decision to choose Liquorose and Cross for their current position as Head of House and Deputy Head of House.

The fate of the other housemates now lies in the hands of their “stans”.

Daily, the tension in the house invisibly increases and the game gets even tougher as housemates focus more on the prize to be won and less on the entertaining gbas gbos.

Regardless of the tension, housemates must jolly and merry at the thrilling legendary Saturday night live party as they did on September 5.
