10 Shocking Lies Nigerian Celebrities Have Told Their Fans


time, these entertainers (listed below) have publicly lied and deceived the media,
their fans and the world at large, only to be found eating back their
words and burying their heads in shame, especially when the truth
surfaces and becomes unassailable.
This AUTHENTIC list below, showcases ten top entertainers and
the many shocking lies they boldly told the public through the media.
The list is arranged based on the gravity of the lies.      Foluke Daramola
four months after debunking the reports of her romantic dalliances with
Kayode Salako, describing it as “baseless rumour” and a “disservice
from the Nigerian Journalists,” busty crossover actress, Foluke Daramola
on February 15, 2013, tied the nuptial knot with Salako at No.2,
Gbeleyi Avenue, by Femifoam Oyemekun, College Road, Ifako-Ijaiye, Lagos.
In her earlier interview with Entertainment Express, the actress had
denied having any romantic affair with Salako.  Her words: “I work with
this person they are talking about. We work together at Change Agents
Network. If any journalist has caught I and Kayode Salako in an
uncompromising situation and wrote the story, I wouldn’t need to be told
that he has done an investigative story. To just see me and him working
together and conclude that there is something intimate is a baseless
accusation. How can you tell me that I’m romantically involved with
somebody I work with because his wife left? Does that make any sense?

she fumed during the interview – yet *clear throat*, they got married a few weeks ago.

Doris Simeon  

March 2012, reports of marital turbulence centered on the family of
crossover actress, Doris Simeon when her celebrated filmmaker husband,
Daniel Ademinokan allegedly trod the path of infidelity with another top
actress, thereby putting the couple’s three-year marriage under
The story made the cover of various newspapers and magazines and equally trended heavily online.
reaction to the story, Simeon debunked the rumoured crack in her
marriage, insisting it was a figment of the peddlers’ imagination, a
distraction and a product of idle minds.
Today, Simeon has buried her head
in shame, not only because the marriage irretrievably nosedived, but for
initially lying and deceiving both the media and her numerous fans
about the true state of her marriage.

Shan George
once accused married actresses in Nollywood of sleeping around at will
without the preying eyes of the media getting hold of them. In her
words: “Most married actresses in the industry sleep around like dogs
and nobody is talking about it. These are people who have been lured to
bed with whiff of money by top politicians and businessmen. These same
people will be claiming to be happily married.”
However, few days
after this outburst, Shan George ate back her words. But instead of
doing so honourably, and apologizing to those hit and hurt by her
revelation, the actress went lying, and denying to have made such a
comment. “Jesus! That is the worst mudslinging technique I have ever
experienced. That is so crappy for someone to quote a childish caption
like that on me,” she lied.
him the greatest liar of the century, you would not be wrong
. Solomon
Oyeniyi, popularly known as K-Solo, did not only lie to the public, but
also to his family members, and in-laws who sought to know the reason
why he battered, extorted and cheated his wife.
The estranged wife,
Christy Kikelomo Akinkunmi with swollen and blood-stained face had
alleged thus: “K-Solo started beating me [up] immediately after our
wedding and I lost the baby I was carrying when we got married on
November 26. The marriage finally crashed in February 2012 when he
called me and told me that Timaya just bought a Nigerian-used Range
Rover Sport, that he wants me to buy him a brand new Range Rover worth
7.5 million and also put N10 million in his account. I told him that
even if I had the money, I won’t do it.”
Instead of intelligently
making up with his embittered wife and apologizing, K-solo blatantly
told the media and everyone that cared to listen about how they staged
the situation to attract media attention. Unfortunately for him, the big
lie came back to haunt him, as the marriage finally collapsed barely
one month after his failed attempt to deceive the world as a failed
Tiwa Savage
At so many
occasions, Tiwa Savage and her manager, Tee Blizz were found kissing and
caressing each other. Even the social media was awashed with pictures
suggesting some romantic dalliances between the duo. Yet the Kele Kele
crooner denied, insisting they had nothing beyond work relationship.
am not engaged and I am not dating Tee Billz. He is just my manager.
The story that I am having an affair with him is mere rumour; we are not
dating.” These were the exact words of Tiwa when she was confronted
with questions about her romance with Tee Blizz. Having grudgingly
swallowed this lie and denial, Nigerians were recently dumbfounded when
videos of their engagement began trending online.
Today, most
people are not upset because they were lied to after the love birds
recently got engaged, they are upset because from now on they would find
it difficult to believe their much admired singer for denying what is
already obvious.

Funke Akindele
many white lies characterized crossover actress, Funke Akindele’s
wedding to her long-time lover, Kehinde Adeola Oloyede popularly known
as Kehinde Almaroof. Apart from numerous verbal lies emanating from the
star actress, she also lied in print, about the venue of the much talked
about wedding.
While the ceremony was scheduled to hold at The
Havens Event Centre, Oba Akinjobi Road, GRA, Ikeja, the invitation card
she circulated carried different address-All Seasons Plaza, Lateef
Jakande Road, Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos.
Apart from the media, so
many other invitees, especially those from distant places, clad in Aso
Ebi, also expressed regrets and disappointment on finding out they had
been misled and lied to by their darling star. When confronted,
Akindele, who spoke through her media aide, blatantly denied knowledge
of the card with the fake address. But nobody believed her cock and bull
Zakky Azzay
With a voice
dripping with pains, emotions and punctuated by throbbing flashbacks,
the battered wife of Na Me Go Marry Am crooner, Zaaki Azzay recently sat
down for over an hour with the editorial crew of Sunday Express, as she
unearthed bitter memories of a turbulent eight-year-old relationship
with her musician husband.
“I have fainted more than two times
after being beaten mercilessly by Zakky Azzay. I almost died in his
hands. On so many occasions, I had packed out of his house after
unbearable assaults and beatings from the man I call my husband. In
fact, since our troubled marriage, I have packed out of his house a
record eight times. Zakky has beaten me on the street of Gbagada before.
He even bought cutlass which he said he will use to kill me!” She
However, when confronted with the poser concerning the wife
battery allegations, Zakky not only lied, he claimed not to have raised
a finger against his wife, let alone hitting her. Till date nobody
believed Azzay’s white lies, as the truth later surfaced.
Yvonne Nelson
Her recent outburst calculated at tarnishing the image of Kukere crooner, Iyanya came as a rude shock to many people.

In other words, when the going was good, the Nollywood actress not
only savoured good moments of romantic relationship with the singer, she
also denied having an affair with Iyanya. When the relationship crashed
and became an open secret, all she could do was to bow her head in
shame, and of course, she moved on with her life. Would she ever be
believed again?
Tuface Idibia
Tuface might have meant the song, ‘African Queen’ for a particular woman
but for long, he has been entangled in a love triangle involving not
less than three African Queens who have given him, a record six

He did not find this situation funny, hence in his
earlier interview with Entertainment Express, the international act
stated thus: “The truth is that marriage is not in my plans. I will
never marry. Let me put it that bluntly. I don’t want to marry. I am

Today, as you read this, the wedding bell is already
jiggling, with date and venue fixed. The truth is, either he earlier
lied about his decision never to marry or he simply had a rethink.

2012, when D’Banj premiered his first reality show, Koko Mansion, he
made series of promises which till today has remained unfulfilled.

His promise to feature the adjudged winner – which turned out to be
Bolanle Okhiria – in the official video of “Fall in Love” is one of
those unfulfilled promises. The Koko master was either lying to all or
deliberately reneged on the promise, as he ended up featuring Nollywood
star, Genevieve Nnaji in the official video.
Toh! Do you Agree with the list?!
