Falz attacked as Nigerians demand justice for 23-year-old girl raped, filmed

The case of two men, who allegedly raped and filmed 23-year-old girl in Lekki has continued to generate reactions online from Nigerians.

This time around, popular Nigerian musician, Folarin Falana known as Falz, has been dragged by Nigerians into the case.

In a call for justice for the girl, some Nigerians on social media called on Falz known for singing about ills in the society to lend his voice to the issue.

Reports making the rounds had it that the suspects: Don-Chima Enyinnaya George and Olusegun Rasak arrested in connection with the case of rape at Lekki area of Lagos were released by the police.

However, the force in a press statement signed by CSP Dolapo Badmus, PRO Zone 2 debunked the reports saying the suspects were still in the police custody.

Meanwhile, Falz is yet to comment on the issue:

Here are comments from Nigerians on Twitter:

@BusolaDavid_ “Falz needs to drop a song about rape! Since he likes taking about ills of the society.”

@thesurexblake “Even after the miracles Jesus performed he was still crucified, So even if Falz puts out a song about every ill in society most of you will still drag him, humans are never just satisfied!

@Biisi96 “Is Falz the only musician in Nigeria? Since they are only doing this out of spite because the shoe he presented to everybody fit them and they wore it they won’t realize Falz actually has a song addressing rape. But let’s go off I guess.”

@Defnotyourmate “Agreed but since Falz is now a ‘moral activist’ what stops him from singing about this one too? People are singing about it, It just seems like a deliberate miss on his side.”

@Mbakutheking “Why are you dragging Falz. Seems like the transactional sex song really got to you guys deep. Meanwhile Falz has a song about rape and it’s called, “Child of the world”.

@VictorTerhemba “Like someone got raped and Falz is being dragged like Falz is the system. Who will drag the police for allegedly letting the rapists go free? Who will drag the government? They are not even dragging the criminals or the father who is alleged used his money to bribe the police.”

@Osi_Suave “Rather than face the people that committed the crime, you are attacking Falz. Some of you are just daft.”

@Octacore “So what happens to your great Linda Ikeji that’s covering this whole shit up? Y’all don’t just have sense at all. Falz that wasn’t even in the scenario of the rape has been dragged over something he’s addressed.”

@PastorOla “Two men raped a young woman.
The said young woman’s brother got them arrested. They were later released by the police and then the father of one of the rapists arrested the victims brother.

“But the thing giving your wcw headache in this story is Falz not singing about rape.”

@Enekemgreg “Rape and Sexual Abuse is a Crime and a Sin. Do you need really Falz to tell you that?

@Chemicalboyy “Razak Oluwaseun Oke and Don Chima George should be the one Dragged here not Falz. And note Falz has a video and song about rape, which is child of the world.”

@SheisBoki “Falz, where are you when you are needed? The musical messiah for social justice?

@I_PissVodka “The sensible ones are out there fighting for justice for rape. The other ones are here dragging Falz into it.”

@Tosinolugbenga “Falz is not the only musician in Nigeria that is supposed to sing about morals.He already released a song, where he talked on Rape (Child of the World).

“Condemn an act without dragging people unnecessarily.What’s evil is evil, we should all condemn it.”

@TomiwaImmanuel “Falz is trending. Of course. Mans could have been busy today, only to come online in the night and see he’s trending for not speaking about a story he may or may not be aware of. Let’s focus on the rapists and getting justice for the victim please.”

Jussie Smollett’s role in Empire slashed over ‘staged’ homophobic attack

Popular actor, Jussie Smollett’s role in Empire, an American series movie, has been slashed following ‘staged’ homophobic attack scandal.

Empire’ writers are reportedly busy making edits in the original script, which scheduled Smollett for nine scenes and a big musical number, according to TMZ.

The medium further reported that Jussie’s character, “Jamal, was originally scheduled to appear in nine scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode, but this would no longer be the case.

“The episodes which are currently being shot will see Jamal appearing in four scenes and his musical number has been taken out of the plot.

“It was also reported that Smollett will no longer be the main focus in the remaining four scenes as he would be flanked by a number of cast members.

“To this end, Jussie will be spending way less time on set without rehearsal,’’ it said.

It was also reported that Smollett, who plays the role of ‘Jamal Lyon’ in ‘Empire,’ will enjoy less screen time.

This move, TMZ reports, is in the wake of a growing sentiment that he staged the widely reported attack on him.

DAILY POST recalls that Smollett was assaulted in Chicago by two men who hurled racial and homophobic words at him.

Smollett told police that he had just landed in town from New York and was attacked as he stepped out to eat at a Subway restaurant around 2 a.m on the East North Lower Water Street, in the upscale neighborhood of Streeterville.

However, there are reports that two Nigerian brothers, Abimbola ‘Abel’ and Olabinjo ‘Ola’ Osundairo, might have been paid off by Smollett to stage the attack.

The brothers were arrested on February 13, 2019, in connection with the case.

They were picked up at the airport in Chicago after they arrived from Nigeria where they had gone to spend some time with their family.

Interestingly, the brothers have been released with no charges as the police revealed there is now new evidence as one of the brothers was Smollett’s trainer for a music video.

Smollett has also vehemently denied paying the two brothers $3,500 to attack him.

His lawyers, Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, disclosed to Entertainment Weekly that the star is now being victimised over the false allegations of him staging the incident.

Nigeria decides: Daddy Freeze mocks Apostle Suleman over prophecy on election postponement

Popular Cool FM’s On Air Personality, OAP, Daddy Freeze, has mocked Pastor Johnson Suleman.

Suleman, during a crusade in Anambra State earlier in the year, had predicted that the 2019 polls would be postponed.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC shifted the elections’ date at the weekend, citing logistic reasons.

But Freeze believes that every Nigerian knew that INEC could come up at any point and change date for the elections.

Freeze, who is popular with his attacks on senior pastors in the country, said that the postponement of elections shouldn’t be counted as a fulfilled prophecy in Nigeria because it happens every election year.

He described the prophesy as a guesswork.

He wrote on Twitter, “OMG Sule is a genuine prophet.

“He saw the elections moving if we don’t pray, but come, they prayed now didn’t they?

“Most Nigerians knew this election, like those of previous years would be postponed, this is guesswork in my opinion, NOT A PROPHECY!”
