Being the biggest female artiste or not, I am very happy where I’m and I’m happy for other females in the industry.”

I would have ended my 10-year relationship earlier if I was more experienced – Ayo Adesanya

Actress, Ayo Adesanya, has said there is nothing worth committing suicide over. She was speaking on the backdrop of growing suicide rates in the country.

 She told Sunday Scoop, “Nothing in life is worth committing suicide over. It is said that when there is life, there is hope. For most people who reached that bridge of almost taking their lives, they eventually thank God that they did not take that plunge. The only thing that is constant is change. You may not have today, but you would have tomorrow.

“When it comes to people in unhappy marriages saying they want to commit suicide, I don’t subscribe to it. If you are not happy in your marriage, the best thing to do is get out of it. However, it is a bit unfortunate that these days, we are no longer as tolerant as our parents before us.

Late Audu’s son set to dump YPP for APC

Barely two months after declaring his intention to contest for the November 16, Kogi State Governorship Election on the platform of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), speculations are rife that the son of the late strongman of Kogi politics, Prince Abubakar Audu, Mona Mustapha Audu, may dump the party and return to his former party, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
