#Tonto Dikeh

"I guess I am now a criminal...MY STOMACH OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO And they are even coming with Press to record my arrest" she wrote on Instagram.

Even though it is not clear why the police are coming to Tonto Dikeh's residence, this might be connected to the ongoing custody battle between herself and her ex-husband, Churchill Oladunni over their son, King.

#OyoGovernment

The story is that the Oyo State government gave the order for Yinka Ayefele’s radio station to be demolished.

The Music House has been demolished, that is what you have read, and Mr. Ayefele is counting his losses.

But it appears that the government has just learned about the demolition the same way every other Nigerian did - reading about it.

On Monday, the Oyo State Government officially denied demolishing the music house of the gospel musician.

The government also expressed shock about the demolition, saying it was preparing to institute a panel of inquiry to unravel the identity of those who broke down some parts of the 800-million-naira edifice.
