Bullying in the entertainment industry made me stop music for a year, says Bad Boy Timz

An afrobeats singer, Oluwatimilehin Olorunyomi, aka Bad Boy Timz, has recounted how he was forced to stop making for a period of one year when he had issues with his former record label.

Speaking at a media parley during the week, the singer told Sunday Scoop, “The kind of bullying I faced included being arrested at the instance of my former record label. The justice system in the country does not protect the average person from rich people. I did not release music for a year. I could not continue the contract, because I could not continue working with someone that got me arrested for breaching a contract. It was not a conducive working environment for me.”

The singer added that he had pay off the label, and leave the country to clear his head.

On why he did not open up to senior ones in the industry, Timz said, “Everyone just felt I was not loyal. Nobody knew what I was going through, and they did not care.”

Speaking on his creative process, he said, “Sometimes, they are freestyles, and sometimes, I write the songs without having any instrumentals for them. There is no formula for the way I make my music. It is based off my reality, other people’s realities, and social awareness. I also sing about youthful stuff, because I am a youth, and that’s what my people want to hear.”

Mother of popular Hausa musician, Rarara, regains freedom

The mother of the famous Hausa political singer, Dauda Adamu Kahutu, popularly known as Rarara, has been freed by bandits.

The news of her release was confirmed by Rarara, on his verified Instagram handle on Wednesday morning.

Details about the release of the 75-year-old Raraya mother are unclear, but unconfirmed reports indicate that a ransom of millions of naira was paid for her freedom.

Recall that Rarara’s mother, Hajiya Hauwa’u Adamu, was kidnapped on June 28, 2024, from her residence in Kahutu village. According to a source, the incident occurred around 1:00 am, shortly after a large group of bandits armed with AK-47 rifles invaded the village.

“The bandits stormed the village barefoot and operated for a few minutes. Upon their arrival in the village, the bandits went straight to the residence of the victim and picked only her, ignoring other people they met in the house.

Following the abduction, police authorities in Katsina State announced that two suspects have been arrested for questioning.

“Upon receipt of the report, promptly, the DPO Danja led a team of operatives to the scene with a view to arresting the culprits and unhurt rescue of the victim,” the spokesman of the Katsina Police Command Abubakar Sadiq said.

“During investigation, two (2) suspects were arrested for questioning. Further development will be communicated in due course as the investigation proceeds,” he added.

Ini Dima-Okojie reveals that her fibroids have returned 3 years after surgery

Three years after undergoing invasive surgery to remove fibroids, Nigerian actress Ini Dima-Okojie has announced that the fibroids have returned.

Taking to Instagram on July 17, 2024, the actress addressed her followers and fans and updated them about the challenges she’s facing and her plans moving forward.

She explained, “I want to share something important with you today. If you’ve been following me, you would probably know that before the end of 2020, I had a myomectomy, which is an evasive surgery to take out fibroids. The surgery was successful; my doctor removed every single fibroid and I healed well. It’s been 3 years since the surgery and unfortunately, the fibroids are back.”

Acknowledging the emotional toll of this setback, she admitted that the news has been hard on her, adding that she has no intentions of undergoing fresh surgery to have them removed.

“It’s very disheartening and it hasn’t been the easiest couple of months but I’m okay. I’ve come to terms with it, and I definitely don’t want to do another surgery anytime soon. This time I want to take a holistic approach towards shrinking the fibroids,” she said.

The actress added, “I just thought it was important to share and it wasn’t easy. I remember the first time I shared my story and how many women felt seen and many people shared their stories with me.”

Ini Dima-Okojie highlighted the importance of raising awareness about fibroids, particularly among black women.

“Too many black women go through this and it wasn’t being talked about enough and it’s still not being talked about enough. I don’t even know if a remedy is being found for it. I’m going to be paying for 20 women to get their screening done; it’s very important,” she said.
