This is yet another exciting love story that will definitely not endure. Especially because what is bad is bad. The major actors are a South South governor and a movie star, also from that part of the country. Both lovers are popular and controversial. On the slim side and dark complexioned, their love adventures normally rotate between Lagos and outside our shores. Although once in a while, they squeeze out time to see in the South South state which the man oversees.
Married but unable to sustain it, the actress is a mother of one and a philanderer of the highest order. Soon after landing on the entertainment scene, she started giving herself freely to different men. Over a dozen of her colleagues, as a matter of fact and as at the last count, had sampled her before she finally settled down. And not long after, she jumped out again to continue with her obnoxious sexual activities. The 8th alphabet begins one of her names and for the governor, the 18th.
Currently the governor’s quasi Personal Assistant, the man hardly comes to Lagos now without her acting as the protocol officer. And sometimes even intruding on the man’s security. Both heavy pretenders and actors, they storm events just minutes apart and to continue to deceive those who have been asking questions about their unusual closeness.
In fact, the story making the rounds now is that if you need anything from the man and route it through the actress, he must get it. Which perhaps also explains why she has been dragging the man every now and then to events organised by her colleagues with whom she has a cordial relationship? The governor, like one insider told us, just doesn’t joke with the actress. The man eats practically from her hands, notwithstanding the no-nonsense posture he’s been putting up. His braggadocio, Ogboju and all what not.
