Femi Fani-Kayode has replied Bianca Ojukwu over her threat to sue him, if he fails to retract his ‘libellous publication’ about her within seven days. Bianca had earlier today replied the former aviation minister saying 'I Have Never Met Femi Fani-Kayode And Was Never His Girlfriend'. But Femi Fani-Kayode who spoke via his spokesperson, Mr Bisi Lawal, he said:
This morning Chief Femi Fani-Kayode woke up to find a letter that was published as an advertorial in Thisday Newspaper purportedly by Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu's lawyer threatening to sue him for mentioning her in his article and claiming that she has never met him before. She also said that he was being malicious. The matter has of course been referred to Chief Fani-Kayode's lawyers who will now take it up.
For some time now the pretty actress/singer has been rocking different hairstyles...from blonde to braids and the most recent is this Short Blonde which I think suits her face pretty well.
Cannibal Cult Leader Who Calls Himself 'Black jesus' And Specialises In Drinking The Blood Of Young Girls Is Hacked To Death
In flowing robes, Stephen Tari, 40, a failed Bible student, once led 6,000 'disciples' through the mountainous regions of the country, but was accused of killing at least three young girls and, as their mothers were forced to watch, drinking their blood.
Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu’s widow and Nigeria’s ambassador to Spain, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, has described as false the claim by former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, that she was his girlfriend when she was a spinster.Fani-Kayode had in his article, entitled: “Neither a tribalist nor a hater,” published in the social media and some segments of the national dailies, claimed to have met with Bianca when she was Miss Bianca Onoh at the Cambridge College and had “intimate” relationship with her together with two other Igbo ladies.
Reacting to this, Bianca said she had never met Fani-Kayode before, either at official or private level, not to talk of having an “intimate” relationship with him.
The ambassador, who spoke through her lawyers, Wall Street Attorneys, has, therefore, threatened to drag the former aide to ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo to court if, in the next seven days, he fails to retract his libelous publication against her.
The letter written by Mrs. Ojukwu’s lawyers and signed by Mike Ugwuanyi, Esq, reads :
“We have been briefed and our services retained by Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain to demand from you an unreserved apology and a retraction of a false and malicious statement, which you published online and also caused to be published in the Leadership Newspaper of August 16, 2013.

The rapper has said he will be dropping a hot new single on his birthday in September. Here is an except from his interview with Vanguard's Weekend Groove:
You seem not to be the romantic type?
Says who? I am very romantic when I’m with the right woman. Just like love and marriage, romance isn't something I throw around.
I remember one St. Valentine’s day. I went to see my Val but I didn't meet her at home. I tied a rose(a real one not plastic) to her door and wrote my initials on a paper. When she returned and saw it, she knew I was the one who put it there.
The incident that made me put my romance in check happened years ago too on another St. Valentine’s day. I bought loads of gifts and fifteen cards because I don't like getting just one. I even booked an hotel room for dinner and all. All she did was say “you shouldn't have done all these!” She didn't even bring me a card.
