Habibat Jinad, the Nigerian actress famous in the Yoruba film industry, has revealed why she decided to bleach her skin.

In a recent interview on Talk To B podcast, Jinad alleged she was verbally abused by Mide Martins, a colleague, on the set of a movie.

She claimed that Mide insulted her and called her a “monkey with a black face”.

Jinad said people always complain about her dark complexion, advising her to “lighten up”.

She added that she “decided to change after Mide insulted me” to make people happy.

“We were at Afeez Owo’s rehearsal ground and a colleague of mine did something wrong which I was not a part of,” she said.

“They told us to kneel down. Mide Martins, my boss and some other people were there. Mide Martins insulted me and called me someone with a black face.

“She said so many things to abuse me and I felt very bad. I later found out that she called me a monkey with a black face.

“I’m sure that till now she might not know that what she said to me the other day somehow affected me.

“Even before then, whenever I was on set, people would say that I’m too dark-skinned and that I need to lighten up.

“So after Mide insulted me, I thought about what I could do to make these people happy. So I decided to change.”

Jinad had previously said she would no longer continue to bleach her skin.

“Nobody can bully me again into using bleaching cream. I’m not bleaching my skin anymore,” she said on Instagram.

Rihanna, the award-winning Barbadian music star, says she wants to work with Ayra Starr, the Nigerian singer.

The music stars recently met at the Fenty X Puma party in London, where they both exchanged pleasantries.

During the chat, Starr told the ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker that Barbados, Rihanna’s home country, is her “favourite place in the world”.

Oh her part, Rihanna confessed she had only heard of Starr through her cousin’s obsession with her music.

“I have been hearing of Ayra Starr, I did not know who but my cousin she was like, ‘Oh my God I got this from Ayra Starr.’ She was obsessed with you,” she said.

She also inquired if the Nigerian songstress has a project with Tems, her colleague.

Starr confirmed that collaborations are in the works, but none have been released yet.

Rihanna responded by playfully expressing her interest in collaborating with the singer, saying, “You got an extra verse for me? Call me”.

In 2022, Rihanna collaborated with Tems, who contributed to the writing of ‘Lift Me Up’, the celestial ballad for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.

Starr previously expressed her desire to collaborate with Rihanna, describing the US singer as her “queen”.

She added that she loves her music, stating it boosts her confidence.

Davido, the Afrobeats star, has shown his support for Cubana Chief Priest after the nightlife promoter was granted bail by a Lagos court.

On Tuesday, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives filed a three-count charge against the social media celebrity over alleged naira abuse.

He was later arraigned at the federal high court in Lagos.

When the charges were read during court sitting, the social media celebrity pleaded not guilty to them.

Kai Cenat threatens to sue OnlyFans model, Layla Red who leaked their chats

Twitch streamer Kai Cenat is poised to initiate legal action against OnlyFans model Layla Red, who allegedly leaked his private images and messages.

According to the claims, Layla Red released conversations showing Cenat agreeing to pay $5,000 for sexual services, leading to her Instagram account being suspended soon after. Addressing the matter during a recent Twitch stream, Cenat assured his viewers that he would tackle the issue through legal means, maintaining his composure throughout the broadcast.

In his first appearance on Twitch following the scandal, Cenat remained unruffled by the allegations, confidently informing his audience about his plans to pursue legal recourse. “There is some dumb shit, clout-chasing weird ass shit going on right now bro. But it’s alright though, it’s alright chat. I’ll see you in court,” he announced.

Cenat also expressed a desire to clear up the situation, urging his viewers to hear his side of the story. “Got you! Okay? Listen to me, okay? I can explain, bro. Listen to me chat, okay, I can explain,” he remarked during the stream. He described the leak as an attempt to gain notoriety, noting that the referenced incidents took place early in 2023.

“There is some weird shit going on right now, some weird clout chasing shit going right now, bro. And you know what’s so crazy? Do you know that shit was in the beginning of 2023? All that shit that you guys see right now is 2023 shit bro, you feel me? Like, goddamn, bro,” he explained.

Shifting away from the controversy, Cenat later encouraged a lighter tone in the conversation. “But yeah, we are not going to talk about it no more. Let’s talk about flowers, rainbows, Ice Spice, come on,” he suggested, steering the dialogue away from the contentious issue.

If the case proceeds to court, it could potentially be treated as a matter of revenge porn, which involves the unauthorised distribution of intimate images or videos with the intention to harm, embarrass, or distress the individual depicted.

Should it be proven that the images and messages were shared without Cenat’s consent and intended to damage his reputation or cause distress, it could fulfil the legal requirements for a revenge porn case. Further evidence of malicious intent or exploitation by Layla Red could also strengthen this claim.
