He said that he had to stop and enroll in a degree program at Delta State University after a prominent actor advised him to do so.

The comedian stated this during an open discussion with Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo. He stated that this decision ultimately led to his great comedy career.

He said:“I was doing all that it takes to get into the entertainment space. And somewhere along the line, I started working with NNPC Junior Staff Club as a bartender.

“That was what inspired my series, ‘Call To Bar.’ Everything around me; my stories, and my movies are all inspired by my experiences.

“When I was working as a bartender, I would see a lot of people the likes of Alex O and Shina Peters coming to perform. I would say to myself that someday, somehow, somewhere, sometime in life, I’m going to get into the entertainment space.
So, there was one time that I approached RMD when he came, a long time ago. We were talking and he advised me to go back to school. He said, ‘Education is important. Afterward, trust me, all these things would follow.’

“So, that was how I gained admission into Delta State University to study Theatre Arts.”

Veteran Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, who recently returned to the screen after a prolonged absence, has shared the significant strides he made during his time away from the industry.

In an interview with NollyNow, Ike explained that his break allowed him to develop new, iconic brands.

“My absence wasn’t really bad because it created room for me to build more brands apart from Emeka Ike you know. I now own Nollywood TV on Startimes and I am building other brands that are highly in demand,” Ike stated.

He also mentioned that his time away from the industry also allowed him to explore opportunities in politics.

Ike expressed his enthusiasm about returning to entertain his fans and fulfill his role as one of Nollywood’s pioneering actors. “We’re breaking the ice once again. I aim to keep entertaining my fans and meet their expectations,” he added.

Emeka Ike’s disappearance from the screen followed the end of his marriage to Suzanne Emma, who is half-Dutch and half-Nigerian.

It’s worth noting that their marriage which began in 2000 and produced four children, officially ended on July 13, 2015, following allegations of constant battery, leading to its dissolution by a Lagos Island Customary Court.

The Nollywood actor and film producer has found happiness again with his new wife, Yolanda Pfeiffer, and they have a baby girl.

Singer Sean Kingston, mother accused of wire fraud, face 20 years in prison

Popular American singer Sean Kingston, whose real name is Kisean Anderson, has been indicted for his alleged involvement in a $1 million wire fraud scheme.

Kingston, along with his mother Janice Turner, was charged in a Miami federal court on Friday.

Daily Mail on Friday said according to the indictment, the scheme involved making fraudulent payments through banks that were never processed, resulting in the accumulation of over $1 million in property.

Kingston and Turner have been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and five counts of wire fraud.

If convicted, they face up to 20 years in prison on each count.

According to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida, the defendants “unjustly enriched themselves by falsely representing that they had executed bank wire or other monetary payment transfers.”

The payments, however, never went through, allowing the defendants to obtain $1 million in property without payment.

Kingston was previously arrested nearly two months ago in California, shortly after a SWAT team raided his rented mansion in Southwest Ranches, Florida.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office stated that the “Beautiful Girls” artist was taken into custody on a Florida warrant for numerous fraud and theft charges. His mother was also arrested that day.

Following his arrest in May, Robert Rosenblatt, an attorney representing Kingston and his mother, told the Associated Press, “We are aware of some of the allegations being made against both of them. We look forward to addressing these in court and are confident of a successful resolution for Sean and his mother.”
