Why I distanced myself when my daughter was accused of fraud – Ireti Doyle

Ireti Doyle, the actress, has spoken up on the business scandal involving Abimbola Ngozi Onyeulo, her daughter better known as Kachi, 2021.

Abimbola, who ran the eponymous Kachi Beauty Products, was accused of defrauding her customers.

An investigation had exposed how the entrepreneur allegedly carted away over N40 million belonging to her patrons after pushing a hair business scheme that promised to make wealthy those who joined its wholesale distribution.

The business, described as an “empowerment scheme”, had attracted many young women and men both in Nigeria and in the diaspora, most of whom trusted Abimbola due to the status of her mother as a prominent actress.

With purchases put in batches, Abimbola introduced a distributor package. It cost N300,000 to subscribe to the silver category, N500,000 for gold subscribers, N1 million for platinum, and N5 million for diamond subscribers.

But allegations of fraud from over 60 customers prompted her mother to dissociate herself from the venture.

In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, the media entrepreneur, Doyle said she had to distance herself from the scandal because “I didn’t see any decisive action on my daughter’s side to take the heat off me.”

The movie star added that while trying to resolve the disputes and clear her name, Abimbola told her to “mind your business”.

“In her defense, the few times I decided to reach out to her and say, ‘a random person reached out to me and this is what they said, would you like to deal with this what’s going on?’” Doyle said.

“She will give me a detailed explanation with proof and tell me how it is being sorted. It got to a point where I was now like, ‘hello I’m not customer care, I don’t work for this company.’

“You know another statement that has been weaponised is ‘as a mother’. Because of ‘as a mother’, so you too you’re stepping into situations that are really none of your business.

“It got to a point I didn’t like how the situation was being handled even on her part because the customer is always right.

“But I didn’t see any decisive action on my daughter’s side to take the heat off me. There was a time she told me to mind my business. It’s her business, she will handle it and I should go and clear my name anyhow I see fit.”

The actress also confirmed her divorce from Patrick Doyle, the ace actor.

Uti Nwachukwu says it’s wrong for a man to get married before age 40

Uti Nwachukwu, the Nigerian media personality, says he thinks men should have no business getting married before 40.

The 40-year-old TV host gave his opinion about marriage in the latest episode of ‘Toke Moments’.

Nwachukwu also said marriage is a spiritual contract which requires a certain level of loyalty.

“I don’t think any man has any business marrying before 40. To me, and it doesn’t make me right. I’d say between 35 to 40,” he said.

“I don’t think any woman should be married before 30. You have to experience life as a single, you have to weigh your options and all of that. Apart from those that are afraid of their biological clock but then again, how many children do women want these days and please there’s technology.”

When asked if he believes a man and woman can be together forever, Nwachukwu said “that is why I am not married yet.”

“I might be Kamala Harris’ age when I decide to get married, I don’t know,” he said.

The former winner of Big Brother Africa (BBAfrica) housemate said people who are not ready to be loyal to their partners should not make their relationship official.

“If you don’t want to commit to somebody, don’t make it official whether in the presence of God, the government or your family,” he said.

“Leave contract, leave the agreement. Once you agree, integrity is integrity. There’s no excuse.”

EFCC grills actress Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin for spraying and stepping on new naira notes

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) branch in Lagos says it has begun an investigation of Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin, the actress, for allegedly tampering with the redesigned naira notes.

The actress was arrested on Wednesday by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for selling the new naira notes on social media.

Azuka Ogugua, the ICPC spokesperson, said the serial entrepreneur colluded with “key elements” in the financial sector to divert the new notes and sell them in the black market.

The EFCC, in a statement on Friday, said it has taken over the case from the ICPC.

The commission said the 31-year-old was arrested after the video of her spraying and stepping on the newly redesigned naira notes at a party surfaced online.

The anti-graft agency said the offense is contrary to Section 21 (5) of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Act, 2007.

“In the viral video, she was also seen flaunting wads of the new Naira notes,” the statement reads.

“The suspect was subsequently handed over to the EFCC on Thursday, February 2, 2023, for further investigations.

“Items recovered from her at the point of arrest include a Range Rover and iPhone mobile devices.

“The suspect will be charged to court once investigations have been concluded.”
