Ex-actor Ernest Asuzu in Kirikiri prison
Troubled actor, Ernest Asuzu is currently in Kirikiri. Why? On Monday July 23rd 2007, he went to visit a friend who was owing him N5, 000, at barbing salon at Okota. When he demanded for his money, and his friend couldn't provide it, Ernest destroyed valuables in the salon worth thousands of Naira, after which he was arrested by the police and prosecuted. And because there was no surety on ground to meet requirements for his bail, the actor was transfered and remanded at Kirikiri Maximum prison on Wednesday July 25th. Recall that he destroyed property worth millions at MITV in 2005, that he was locked up for? And the fight he got into at Murphis Nite club in Surulere, where he was beaten mercilessly? He was also sent to the psychiatric ward in yaba sometime last year because his behaviour seemed sick...this is what he had to say some days ago from Kirikiri prison, about his problems
Ernest "It's my enemies again. They want to silence me by all means. Please I want all Nigerians to come to my aid and remember me in their prayer. Each time I keep off the public eye, I won't have any problem, but immediately I make any move to relaunch myself I become a different person. I'm beginning to think that somebody is behind this, because immediately I entered the police station, my eyes cleared. When they read my charges, I broke down in tears as per how and when did this happen?"
I feel sorry for this guy...some people are alleging that an ex actress girlfriend did something to him...don't know the real truth, but I hope God comes to his rescue before he wrecks himself finally.

Eddy vs Kenny St Brown
Recall I told you sometime ago about the break up between Ex-Remedy member, Eddy Montana and Gospel crooner, Kenny St Brown? Well, the lady accused her estranged husband of wife battery, adultery, etc...well Eddie replied her this week by granting interviews with most soft sell mags in Naija...this man talked too much about the whole drama...here's a little of the things he had to say about his wife and why his marriage packed up
Do you see any hope of a reconciliation? Eddy "Hardly! I will always love Kenny but I don't think that as a right thinking person, I should mend fences with her. Any woman that would pack out of her home that has two kids and she professes to be a christian, is not a wife or a mothers. She never wanted to build a family with me, she carried an Ogungbe passport in my house for 3yrs. It took my stubbornness to make her change her name from Ogungbe to Brown. Her family married her off because she was getting old but she wasn't proud of me or the Brown name"
They allege you beat her often
Eddy "That's a brand new lie. I never beat her."
Why did you two quarrel often?
Eddy "It was all due to her infidelity, she was very unfaithful. Are you aware that she dated D1?, Kingsley Ike, and one Bayo at Ajao Estate...long explanation...let's cut it short"
Whats Kenny's relationship with Essence(R&B singer)
Eddy "I started getting uncomfortable with her relationship with my wife after I walked in to find both of them in the bathroom naked, This is a woman who doesn't like me to see her nakedness. What were they doing?"
They also accused you of infidelity
Eddy "Yes, I'm a man, which man would not look for pleasure outside when he's denied it at home? My wife denied me of sex for 8 months. She only came to me for sex when she needed it. That was to have kids."
They said you made your house help pregnant? Eddy "That's not true. My wife and I found out who impregnated the girl"
What's your relationship with Keke Ogungbe
"Keke has never liked me. When I married his sister in 2000, he gave me N25, 000 as a wedding present, and he didn't contribute a dime to my wedding, neither did he come for my children's naming" bla bla bla
Long interview, painful and amusing to read...the wahala with marriage sha! Oh, BTW, Essence denies being a lesbian.
