      What Paul and Elshama had was a “ONE NIGHT STAND” so she decided to put the responsibility on Paul so as to be noticed and tagged Paul Okoye’s babymama hoping to get a ring but he was sharp and read the handwriting on the wall and had a DNA Test. BOOM! The result was out and He wasn’t the father of the baby so Elshama and her relatives who wanted to be called Psquare’s inlaw crawled back to their shell.
      Several men have been banging Elshama even Peter banged her small. All these una BEAUTY QUEENS and CELEBS sha. #EnoughTeaSpilled

      “even Peter banged her small”, no offense I find that comment really stupid. I care less about the controversial story, but what the hell is banged small or big? You banged someone, you banged them, nothing like small or big. Smh.

    Pipi but na wa o. Why is the absence of the baby paining you like this? Yes he cheated and has a baby and is probably still cheating and his wife appears to accept it like that. What does it do for you to bring up the baby? You want to breastfeed her? Or pay her school fees?


      December 7, 2015 at 2:12 pm

      …. and is probably still cheating and his wife appears to accept it like that.
      What kind of statement is that??? Na wa for u too.
      It’s just that u are afraid of BN bashing. But a burnt-out bulb like me does not fear short-circuit. Pipi/poo poo is typing what is in the hearts of most of u, cos of the title. But the “unconventional” person in question is always invisible. I don’t want to be in that boy’s shoes when he grows up though. Lil’ man is nowhere in the “happy family” pics, dad never gushes about him like he does with lil bro André. Poor boy, daddy may have taken his (financial) responsibilities because the boy is biologically his, but deep down in his heart ,has he really accepted junior?
      No words for the babymama, but it’s quite sad for that innocent boy….not cool to be a dirty little secret.
      .The show must go on… very beautiful pictures i must say ;The happy family brand should remain “clean”;

    @riffraff, I am not afraid of anyone’s bashing but most men in nigerian music industry (and I’ve worked in that industry) cheat on their significant others. Analyse from now till tomorrow, it’s what it is.

    Mmmmm….my sisters and their double standards….cheating is ok if ur husband is psquare or tuface or any oda big name…u can stay with him! But if he is Maje then u have self esteem issues. Lol! Naija sisters nor go kill person!
    And besides i understand d issue abt d child of d beauty queen…but i cant judge i just hope things work out well fr them all!

    Gosh Anita is so gorgeous. I love this chic, She is just a breath of fresh air. There is this aura about her i cant pinpoint. Paul has the best and most gorgeous wife amongst all the other celebs. Her humility and grace just oozes out her pores. Beautiful family.

    #Aniliscious is what i call her 🙂

    The last picture should have been on the cover. Not everytime over dressed and over beat and over posing. Sometimes just chill and relaxed-looking shoot makes said celebs more relatable, and me wanna pick it up and see what this celeb really is all about.

    @Pipi, yes we blame the girl for getting pregnant! We feminists cannot have it both ways. It is either your body and your right to protect it OR it is your body and another’s right to regulate and protect it. You cannot, with the same mouth you shout “pro-choice, I will abort if I want” go ahead and abdicate responsibility of that body to a guy under the guise of “we were two on that bed, we both had sex”. So which is it people? Is it your body, your rights or your body, our shared responsibility?

    Oh, the confusion of freedom!

      I don’t even understand the point you’re trying to make. ??

    @belema,she was saying that as a feminist that she don’t supposed to get pregnant maybe the husband will get pregnant since she’s a [email protected] you are on your own,stop saying we because naija feminist girls are two faced and hypocrites,they dey carry belle now ooooo!!! e’g chimamanda.Kontinu deceiving yourself.You don enter one chance my sis.

    Let me explain, shey we feminists dey always shout “it is our body, it is our right?” In that case, we should take care of that body abi? Taking care of it includes making sure we don’t get pregnant. But no, confused feminists will say, don’t blame the girl, the guy had sex too, the girl didn’t have sex alone. So the question is this? Will you take care of your body and make sure you don’t get pregnant OR will you get pregnant and say I had sex with a man and we are both guilty? You have to pick one option. You cannot have it both ways.

    Do you now understand?

    Please has anyone read this magazine yet… What is unconventional about their marriage? And what did Paul do does he have a baby for another woman?

    • Celeste

      December 9, 2015 at 9:34 am

      Yea, same question I asked when I read through and also saw the magazine cover. There’s nothing unconventional about their marriage. This magazine should stop with their senseless headlines.

    @Ada,No!!,anyway I wish you good luck with your feminism agenda but not in my house.Thanks.

    The DNA test came out, and Paul is not the father. I love a good scandal as good as the next person but Elshama is a non-story. She should get it together o. Anita this your beauty *Wizkid voice* I just can’t explain. Lol. Have fun and keep Christ first o.
