Not many women, even damsels have cheery stories of Valentine’s Day to tell. But for drop dead gorgeous actress and Ex Big Brother Africa Housemate, Lilian Afegbai, known on Instagram as Lillyafe it has been a singsong of excitements and roller-coastal carousel of romantic bliss. In a chat with Potpourri the Benson Idahosa University alumnus confessed that it gets better every year.
Hear her: “Valentine to me is simply reminding people how beautiful love is, sharing it with friends and loved ones. Although we should express it everyday not only February 14th. The most amazing I have had ? The problem is every year it gets better, hoping this year would be the most amazing.”
Lilly is a disconcertingly, bewitching beauty that seems to possess some powers of entrapment, mentally and physically. In the course of doing this story it became such a trying task to make up our minds which picture of hers to use for this publication. A peep into her Instagram page was as mesmerizing as it was whimsical. It was like walking into a gallery of goddesses with only one face of cascading kaleidoscope imagery of beauty.
Lillian Afegbai has won many awards as an actress. She has won City People Movie Award for Most Promising Actress of the Year and in 2018 she won the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards for Indigenous Movie of the Year for her production debut in the movie ‘Bound’.

The fight between Nollywood actress, Tonto Dike and her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill, has become messy despite the fact that the relationship had produced a child.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the war, which was fought in the media, has now moved to the Court following the recent action by Churchill.
A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja Judicial Division, has invited popular Nollywood celebrity, Tonto Dikeh, to appear in Court over a suit filed by her former husband, Dr. Olakunle Oladunni Churchill and his organization, Big Church Foundation, a subsidiary of Big Church Groups.
The case against Tonto in the High Court with Suit No CU/5801/19, issued 14 days notification with strict implications on her failure to appear before the Court, as the Court may proceed therein with judgement even in the absence of the Defendant (Tonto Dikeh).
According to the case filed by the 1st and 2nd Claimant (Dr. Churchill and Big Church Foundation respectively), former husband of the defendant, it maintained claims that the series of malicious and fallacious allegations, assertions and accusations through media campaigns and publications by Tonto Dikeh and her charity organization were defamatory, baseless and sponsored to tarnish and damage the image and political ambition of the claimant, as he might have told her his intentions to run for Federal House of Representatives in his constituency.
The suit identified several declarations with substantial proofs ascertaining illegalities in the action and approaches adopted by the claimant’s ex-wife. The claims includes the declaration that the defendant’s interview on series of false allegations on domestic violence, infidelity, false allegations of fraud, sexual disease, money ritual, homosexuality/bisexuality, and mockery of the 7,000 persons empowerment project by Big Church Foundation, describing the humanitarian intervention as fake.
According to the suit, Tonto Dikeh’s interviews were aired, published and sponsored via broadcast channels, online media platforms, YouTube handles, notable print publications and even on her large 4million followers page on Instagram, with a view to impugn the character, standings in life and goodwill of her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill. The claim also requires the sum of 500million Naira as general damages from Tonto Dikeh (the defendant), for the libelous, slanderous and false allegations published against the claimants.
In one of her defamatory assertions Tonto noted the father of her ex-husband was a gardener, but sources have revealed that her claim was just mere fabrication as the father of her ex-husband was instead a high leveled personality, recognized and engaged with several international leaders, with gainful impacts in areas of humanitarian impacts and diplomatic connections.
The defendant’s action in appearance would be to propose and provide reliable evidence to sustain the accusations, insults, defamation, slander and allegations supported, published and promoted on several mass media networks and platforms, including television, YouTube channels, social media handles and the online media channels.
Tonto Dikeh has also been compelled by the suit filed against her to publish or cause to be published an apology to her ex-husband, and a retraction of the publications on her Instagram pages, YouTube Channel, 3 major Nigerian newspapers and their online sites, as well as a file affidavit of compliance of same within 14 days of the delivery of judgement. Also an order of perpetual injunction may also be issued restraining the defendant, privies, agents etc from publishing or cause to be published any further defamatory words against the claimant. She would also have to refrain from any form of blackmail or extortion of her ex-husband in the name of upkeep and education for their son. However, she has continued to refuse the father access to the child, even when the Court had earlier granted him access to his son.
The claim also demanded a sum of 10million Naira as cost of the action of defendant.
Controversial Big Brother Naija 2019 housemate, Natasha Akide also known as Tacha or Simply Tacha has revealed why she loves Nigerian singer, Tekno.
Tacha, weeks ago stirred up reactions on social media when she declared her soft spot for the ‘Skeletun’ hit maker, and the pair went on to share tweets that suggested a relationship was in the offing between them.
The Port Harcourt First Daughter in a recent interview with Punch’s Sunday Scoop, revealed that she loves Tekno because he is a young talented artiste.
“Oh my god! I love Tekno’s face and his music. He is such a talented young man and that alone is an inspiration to me. Shout out to him,” she said.
Speaking about getting married to Tekno, the reality television show star said, “What do you think? You want to get us a hashtag already? I respect his talent and I’m sure he will be an amazing guy for whoever he marries in future.”
Tacha also spoke about her new reality television show, Keeping up With Tacha, which was inspired by her fans and the people around her who have missed her.
In her words, “KUWTACHA was inspired by my fans and the people around me. They missed seeing me on screen and as a matter of fact, there has been a hunger and demand for more of me, hence the reason for the show.
“Sometimes, I have crazy ideas and quickly put it down in my notebook. Then, I call my team to see how we can bring them to life. With the show, I was so sure I had to do it for the entertainment part of my brand. It sounded crazy and challenging at first but we are doing it. There’s an urgency to sustain the show and we are working on that to make sure it doesn’t just go into thin air after the first episode. I have no doubt that KUWTACHA will be a huge success.”
Tacha also maintained that the show wasn’t meant to be a competition to BBN. She said, “That’s not true. Big Brother Naija gave me a huge platform to ride on. They are a huge part of the Symply Tacha brand. How can I be competing with that? KUWTACHA is nothing like the BBNaija
