Celebrity scandal that shocked the entertainment industry

Controversial Tonto Dikeh, a Nollywood celebrity, and her ex-lover, Prince Kpokpogri, dominated the news headlines throughout September even though they formally split up in July.

Mr Kpokpogri, who also serves as the Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum chairman, referred to his ex-lover as “Helen of Troy”.

“We only dated for three months, and it was a living misery!” So much has happened in such a short period that I ignored it for the sake of the so-called relationship and my sanity,” Mr Kpokpogri stated in response to the news of their split.

Mr Kpokpogri came to public attention after Ms Dikeh revealed him on her official Instagram page on his birthday, 27 June. However, the once-happy relationship ended after a famous Instagram gossip blogger published a viral voice note and a phone chat between Mr Kpokpogri and a socialite online.

Ms Dikeh’s admirers begged her to take their growing romance off Instagram and celebrate each other privately during the height of their romance. However, their cries went unheeded as Ms Dikeh took the open exhibition of passion on Instagram to new heights; while her fans hoped the affair would last, little did they realize that they would become sworn foes in no time.

Dikeh revealed many stunning revelations in a plea against Mr Kpokpogri dated 6 September and sent through attorneys at Festus Keyamo Chambers and Okechukwu Uju-Azorji & Arinze Egbo to the Police Commissioner, FCT Command.

She accused him of blackmail, extortion, a life threat, hacking, obtaining by deception, and cyberstalking, among other unprintable charges.

Mr Kpokpogri retaliated against his ex-girlfriend, accusing her of infidelity and drug use. The Nigerian rumour mill went into overdrive when reports surfaced that the DSS had arrested Mr Kpokpogri. Still, he quickly debunked the report and launched a petition against Ms Dikeh, asking N10 billion in compensation.

Precious Chikwendu, an ex-beauty queen and ex-wife of former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode, testified in a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Customary Court in Abuja on 7 December 2021 that her ex-husband never consummated their six-year relationship because he allegedly had erectile dysfunction.

Chikwendu further claimed that she was forced to remain celibate during the cohabitation and that the four children she had with Mr Fani-Kayode were conceived through artificial insemination.

However, during the legal battle for custody of their four children, the separated wife called him out on social media in September 2021.

Chikwendu, whose marriage to Fani-Kayode was called off in 2020 due to infidelity and domestic abuse charges, turned to Instagram to accuse him of causing “emotional damage” to their children.

She said that after leaving her marriage with Kayode in August 2020, she had been denied access to her children, and her children had been deprived of motherly care and protection.

The ex-beauty queen said that by denying the children access to their mother, the former minister and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain was doing them a disservice.

In October, Tiwa Savage, a Nigerian singer, stated that she was being blackmailed over a sex tape during an interview with American OAP, Angie Martinez of Power 105.1, and implored fans to defend her if the intimate film went viral.

The “Water And Garri” singer claimed that the sex tape was accidentally published on Snapchat by her lover and was quickly deleted. However, the blackmailer obtained a copy of the film before removing it.

Nigerians reacted differently to her revelation. Others asked how someone who described herself as a grown-up lady, a mother, and a role model could produce a sex tape and publicize it, even if it was only for one second.

Before the sex tape appeared online, the singer promised no one would see it while playing at a show event in Lagos on 17 October 2021.

When she told her side of the story about their marital problems, the singer denied being a persistent cheater and explained it was a one-time affair.

“Most of you have heard one side of the tale; now it is time for you to hear mine.” I’m not a chronic cheat; I’m far from it. I’m just a wife who was truthful with her spouse.

Before I arrived in America during Trump’s presidency, I was unsure about migrating, and I had an affair. “That affair lasted only one date; I’m sorry about it, but I hadn’t relocated to America,” she explained.

Mr Kpokpogri explained that he is merely a family friend of Mena, who he describes as an Isoko woman. He further stated that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency should test Ms Dikeh.

“Does Janemena know who I am? Yes! We’ve only spoken on the phone since attending her shop’s grand opening years ago. We’ve been family friends for years, and the husband is a good friend.

“It is a taboo where I come from to sleep with a married woman even though I am still unmarried, and much more so with a married Isoko lady, who will face the greatest consequence if she does.”

“Don’t bring her or any other name from your mind into our long-sunk ship.” I’ve lived and continue to live a clean life. No amount of blackmail will be able to bring me down.

Ms Dikeh’s vehement allegation elicited various reactions from admirers, notably because Ms Dikeh claimed that Mr Kpokpogri built a business for Emena in Delta State.
