Ojukwu’s Family Asks Bianca For Proof Of Marriage

 

Some members of the Ojukwu family have asked the Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, Bianca Ojukwu, to show proof that she was legally married to the late Ikemba of Nnewi, Chukwuemeka Odimegwu-Ojukwu.

In a 19-paragraph statement of defence filed by Ojukwu Transport Limited and seven others before Justice Funmilayo Atilade of the Lagos High Court, the family equally demanded proof from Bianca that her two sons, Afamefuna and Nwachukwu are biological sons of Odimegwu- Ojukwu.

The other defendants are Prof. Joseph Ojukwu, Engr. Emmanuel Ojukwu, Lotanna Putalora Ojukwu, Dr Patrick Ojukwu, Arc. Edward Ojukwu, Lota Akajiora Ojukwu and Mrs. Massey Udegbe (doing business under Massey Udegbe & Company).

Bianca had in suit No: LD/1539/2012 filed on behalf of her two under-aged children, Afamefuna and Nwachukwu (claimants), wants the court to declare that her children are entitled to the possession and occupation of the property known as No. 29, Oyinkan Abayomi Street, Ikoyi Lagos, until the harmonisation of the management and administration of the assets of the first defendant (OTL).

At the resumed hearing of the suit yesterday, counsel to Bianca and her children, was not in court which necessitated Justice Atilade to adjourn the suit till December 10 for adoption of written addresses on a Motion on Notice seeking to restrain the defendants from the property in dispute.

Bianca’s children had through their lawyer; Chris Ezugwu, prayed the court to declare as illegal the threat of forceful ejection from 29, Oyinkan Abayomi Street, by the defendants.

In addition, they urged the court to declare that they are entitled to possess the following property, namely: No 13, Hawksworth Road, Ikoyi (now known as No. 13 Ojora Road); No 32A, Commercial Avenue, Yaba, Lagos; No 30, Gerard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos; No. 30, McPherson Avenue, Ikoyi.

Bianca’s children said throughout the period their father was struggling to retrieve the properties from the government, the second to the seventh defendants “never played any role in the struggle nor contributed financially or otherwise to the realisation of the struggle.”

Besides, the claimant is asking for an order of court restraining the defendants, their agents or privies from interfering with the claimants’possesion and control of the properties.

But, in their statement of defence, the 1st to the 7th defendants through their lawyer, George Uwechue, SAN, averred that the subscribers of the memorandum of association of Ojukwu Transport Limited (1st defendant) at incorporation in 1952 were L. P. Ojukwu and Betram Chukwuemeka Obi, adding that the late Chukwuemeka Odimegwu-Ojukwu and one Prof. Joseph Ojukwu (2nd defendant) were later appointed as directors in 1953.

They stated that late Chukwuemeka Odimegwu- Ojukwu thereafter ceased to be a director of the company prior to the Nigerian civil war and was reappointed as a director on December 16, 2005 while the 3rd and 4th defendants were appointed directors in 1954 and 2005 respectively.

They added that the claimants’ statement of claim contained tissues of lies and distorted facts alleging that Bianca who instituted the suit, “being greedy felt that she could hold unto the company’s properties.”

List Of Popular Nollywood Actresses Still Single [PHOTOS]

For some actresses in the Nollywood industry, they have remained single despite attaining marriageable ages due to some reasons best known to them. Some of them have remained single mothers, never married before, or divorced their husbands.

Below are some of Nollywood single actresses

 

Bimbo Akintola
Bimbo Akintola is an actress that is no doubt very beautiful and sexy. To say the crossover actress will be single at a little over 40 remains a mystery to some of her fans. She seems not to be bothered about not finding a man to call her husband as she recently said in an interview.

She has not be linked to any marriage before now and there are reports now that she will soon get hooked to a man. Bimbo has acted in many movies and she is adored by movie buffs as a good role interpreter, but it seems love has not been fair to her. Some attribute her present single stature to heavy drinking and smoking habit.

Genevieve Nnaji
This is another actress that is very sexy and pretty that has not yet found a man to call her husband. Though her love life has been kept secret from the media and the public, one name that has recently popped up is that of the self acclaimed ‘Koko master’, D’Banj. The Imo State-born screen diva is a single-mother that doesn’t presently have someone to call her husband despite being 34 years old.

Rita Dominic
Another name that must be mentioned in this list is that of Rita Dominic. Apart from Bimbo Akintola, Rita can rightly be said to be the next oldest single screen diva. She is reportedly close to 40 years of age and with the way things are going, she may not end up to be someone’s wife in the nearest future. Rita is seen by many as a wife material, but it is amazing to some of her fans that she is still without a husband. She has been linked with Jim Iyke, Noble Igwe and few others in the past, but none of them has taken her to the altar for marriage.

Bisi Ibidapo Obe
This is another actress that is single, though she has a child, which she recently allegedly had for controversial activist, Dino Melaye, who has reportedly denied the child’s paternity. Bisi Ibidapo Obe is yet to be married and she has not been lucky with men. From the look of things, she is ripe for marriage and has the beauty a man would pray to have in a woman.

Ebube Nwagbo

Pretty and blessed with the necessary curves, Ebube Nwagbo may be described as the definition of beauty, but alas, she is single and not the Mrs of a Mr. The innocent-looking actress, though not with many scandals like some married actresses, was once alleged to have wrecked the young marriage of music artiste, KCee, who she once dated.
The actress is among the eligible single Nollywood stars who have remained single. No doubt, many men are fighting hard to have her hand in marriage, but Ebube seems not to be interested in them, but only interested in concentrating on her jobs and selling her Posh Hair products.

Fathia Balogun
This sexy Yoruba movie star was once married to an actor, Saidi Balogun, and they had two children together as husband and wife, but she is now single. Her marriage crashed like a pack of badly arranged cards few years back and she has remained single since then.

The over 40 years old actress is a sought-after, but her career seems to be her major priority for now. Some are even speculating that she might reconcile with her ex-husband soon based on the retention of ‘Balogun’ in her name. She has remained single for some years now, and many are wondering why she has not yet decided to move on into the arms of another man. Only Fathia knows why she is saying ‘no’ to men who are coming to her, possibly for marriage.

Kate Henshaw
To say Kate Henshaw has not been lucky with relationship may be stating the obvious. Her relationship with a popular gospel artiste in Nigeria ended badly. It was even alleged that she then suffered domestic violence from the hands of the ‘minister’ of the gospel. Her marriage to her ex-British husband ended few years ago. Since then, the tall and dark screen diva has chosen to remain a single mother.

Ayo Adesanya
Ayo Adesanya, like some of her colleagues, used to be married, but she is presently single after her union to Goriola Hassan crashed. Close friends of the actress are not even certain if she will remarry anytime soon. Ayo Adesanya is a woman a man would pray to have as wife. She is pretty and presentable as ‘mama’, but why she is not yet married remains a mystery to some of her fans.

Clarion Chukwura
To put up a list like this and never mention Clarion Chukwura’s name would be like listing the best football clubs in the world without mentioning Real Madrid. In fact, she should have opened the floor of single Nollywood actresses. Clarion is a single mother who is over due to be a man’s wife, but that is not the case at the moment.

She is the mother of popular music video director, Clarence Peters, who she bore for another popular figure, Sir Shina Peters (SSP). Clarion is still single and is probably happy with that. She has been alleged to have warmed the beds of younger lovers. She still has that beauty that could make a man get a hard on.

”The competition has taught me a lot” Project Fame winner, OLAWALE OJO

Life in the academy ?

First few weeks in the academy was not too pleasant , because I didn’t even believe in my self then . What I do was to just go on stage and do what I know how to do better . Even at a time I was abused of singing without emotion, but as time goes on I got used to it and pushed ahead .

How did you feel when announced winner ?

My mind went blank. I am grateful to God and appreciate those who believed in me and voted for me massively. It’s actually not all about my talent but those who believed in me and voted me to the top and all I have to say is thank you and I promise I will never disappoint them .

Any plan for the money, contract and car presently ?

I think for now I will focus on the recording contract , because there is nothing for me to spend the money on . And I have been surviving without the money , but as time goes on I will think of how to invest it. There is a difference between spending and working. If there is one thing I can buy out of the money for now, it would be a lovely piano. I had one but it’s not really good. I would give it to someone.

Have you been to a reality show before Project fame?

Actually , I have never been to a reality show or any form of audition before. Project fame is my first attempt . Though a friend actually pushed me into the competition. He said, why was I wasting my talent in the corner of my house, because I’m always playing my piano and also involved myself in church activities. I was very nervous when I went for the audition. But now I am glad and thank God it’s now a history.

What do you think make people to like you ?

It was when I did Asa’s song. The moment I did the song, everything changed. It was then I comprehended all the things the faculty members taught me and I began applying their lessons.

Were you ever intimidated by anyone in the academy ?

I wasn’t intimidated by anyone, and I think we are all unique in our own ways . What I do was just to make sure I give the best and I did not forge myself .

What were your winning strategies?

My winning strategy was just being myself. The second factor was God.

Any challenges in the academy ?

My greatest challenge was being nervous and rigid on stage but as time goes on I was able to overcome it .

What was your father’s reaction to your choice of profession ?

He wasn’t happy with it , but his discouragement really taught me how to be a fighter. If I didn’t give it a fight, I wouldn’t have been where I am today. His discouragement was a motivating factor that propelled me to greater heights. And he was indifferent because I am the first musician in my family. Thus, it didn’t really appeal to him. However, when I was picked after the audition, he was happy.

As a student , how would you manage academics and the stardom ?

I would just be myself. I was in school before Project Fame and I have been rehearsing. Thus, it won’t disturb me much. Let me just wait and see how it would play out because I have not tasted stardom before. I don’t know how it feels out there.

What’s your genre of music?

I am an R n’ B singer but due to my flexibility, I can perform well in other genres too. The competition has taught me a lot.

‘My expectation was to get to the top and be number one slot. ’ – IMMACULATE PATIENCE EDOCHIE, 1st runner-up

How do you feel as first runner up?

I feel grateful. I was actually speechless. I don’t have the right words to describe the feeling. I am so happy. It shows that hard work pays, I am so happy.

Your expectation while going into the academy?

My expectation was to get to the top and to be number one slot. However, I’m still okay with the second position. From the onset, I performed as if I was at the final.

Tell us your winning strategies in the academy ?

(Hmmmm), The first thing I do was to blank out my mind from the overlook the money , the car and the recording deal. The reason was that when you have the consciousness that you are in a competition, you will deprive yourself of your originality. So I blanked myself out and desired to be myself and have fun. Because to me music is an expression of your beauty. That helped me to stay focused.

Were there any challenges?

There were lots of emotional incidents. The joy of it was that it made me stronger. While in the academy I was like, ‘I am tired’ and wanted to go home. But I learnt to face it and overcome it.It was not easy because you have to wake up sometimes in the middle of the night to learn songs and train yourself to be perfect . But at last I was able to overcome the worries . And one of the challenges was s the Nancy issue. It taught me to always be prepared. Everybody can’t like you. It taught me how to handle issues.

Your next step from here ?

I intend to disturb all of you with good music. I will make my fans proud. Omawumi is my mentor, she is my reference point. She was not the winner but successful now. It’s not about winning. I am an achiever. Not all winners are achievers. So my plan is to pay back my fans with good music.

What’s your genre of music?

I love African music. And the songs I want to focus on is more of Africa , because there is a lot in Africa which people do not know about so am here to unveil it .

What’s your plan for the N3 million and car?

My plan is to relax and invest later. I want to utilize the fame first before the money.

I want to finish my education before I go fully into music Margaret Cephas

How do you fill as the second runner up ?

Am okay and I feel great because it wasn’t easy at all

Your experience in the academy ?

It was tough for me , though I don’t know about others . But I feel good at least I came the second runner up

Why did you come all the way from Liberia ?

I think its because project fame is meant for Africans and its a big project too . So my coming was never a mistake because today I am been known almost all over the world

Your plans ?

I want to focus on my studies first after which I can go fully into music . And for the money I will keep it at least I have a car to move around

I feel great, happy and grateful to God.

Did you ever think of getting to this stage ?

Yes. Though I wish to be the winner but all the same am glad that I still got something and thanks to my fans because without them its possible for me not t go this far , so am happy .

How did you feel when you were announced the third runner up ?

Sincerely, I was shock because I didn’t expect it . But I give God thanks .

What did you learn in the academy , and how has it helped you ?

The first lesson in the academy was being myself. Be original. Second, I learn how to appreciate African culture. Also, I learnt how to be creative and utilize it for my own good.

Your plan for the N2 million?

I don’t have any plan now because when you are conscious of the fact that you have money, you will squander it. The money would be utilized to help me push my career to limelight
