FATHER & BIG BROTHER! The price I paid for accepting responsibilities was nine years at the university, says Ayo Makun


Ace comedian and actor, Ayo Makun, has said he spent nine years as a student at Delta State University because he embraced the responsibility of taking care of his younger siblings when their parent died.

AY, who spoke in a Goldmynetv, said his father died in 1999 and his mother soon after.

He said,

“In December 1999 when my dad passed, It was difficult to take over his position as the first son. It became even more difficult when my mum decided to join him in no time.

“Embracing the responsibilities of taking care of my four sisters and two baby brothers wasn’t the best message to preach to a waiting landlord whose rent must be paid in due time. The combination of being a big brother and father came with a price that kept me in Delta State University for 9 years as a student.

”Apart from the non-negotiable Christian upbringing from my parents, my dad always drilled me and made me tough. He taught me how to be a strong independent young man. How to carry my siblings along as a leader of purpose. Though it wasn’t an easy journey for me or any of my younger ones, as we all struggled together. But hope was like the sun, which casts the shadows of our burden behind us.

“Humility is the true key to succeed in life. Eradicate every form of arrogance and self-indulging trap that will halt your blessings from God. See you at the top. ”

Alleged rape: Segalink confirms that Dbanj rape accuser, Miss Seyitan was detained by police



Human Rights Activist, Segun Awosanya aka SegaLink, has confirmed that Dbanj rape accuser, Miss Seyitan, was indeed arrested by the police.

Seyitan Babatayo, recently recounted her ordeal while in police custody for two days almost two weeks after going public with her story.

This information was contained in a statement issued by Stand To End Rape (STER) Initiative and signed by her.

Segalink yesterday stated that the police simply acted as an arbiter and the documents generated in that regard with the consent of Seyitan’s lawyer and parent proves this. He went on to narrate some incidents that occurred before the alleged rape incident ignited a controversy on social media. He has now given an update on the situation, confirming that Miss Seyitan was indeed arrested and detained by the police based on a petition which was eventually pulled out. See what he wrote below;

Releasing my final statement on this matter after receiving a conscionable courtesy call from @seyitannn_ ‘s mum, sister @tosinbunmi12 with @seyitannn_ in the loop. Please stay tuned.

I really want to appreciate Seyitan’s family at this difficult time. It is indeed a pleasure speaking with you this morning. I’m glad to be filled in on the missing links as well as elated to know we are on the same page as regards the fact that Seyitan’s interests is paramount.

As discussed, permit me to communicate seyitan’s family’s position on this matter, which consistently represents the prayers and wishes of Seyitan: She deserves her peace and a normal life.

Seyi is not a liar. She has been under untold strain which may have contributed to communication gaps and inconsistencies that have now being put into perspective. I would like to clarify that she was arrested and detained based on a petition which was eventually pulled out.

The family will take it from here and all warring parties are hereby advised to stand down and respect the wishes of the family.

Here is my position, which I cannot fail to stress, lest I fail generations and welcome a repeat of what played out here. The vicious & hateful approach of some interests (BMC & e-Feminist Coven) on this matter at the expense of Seyitan’s wellbeing must be condemned by All.

The malicious interest group erroneously believe that seyitan’s reluctance in taking their orders, was connected to me as proven by their numerous statements via Twitter trolls & ghouls under the pseudonym of e-Feminists (recently re-christened as Feminist Coven).

The family also reiterated and distanced themselves from the unfounded allegations pushed by those hoping to traffic their agenda through her situation. Seyi and her family are not interested in any CASE or legal battle as strictly communicated to @SIAF_NG (via @segalink)…

…even before the involvement of STER or police as well as the beleaguered feminist coven spinning tales and accusing every and anyone of coercion and control simply because their agenda got derailed.

I still want to believe measurably that STER meant well for Seyitan and couldn’t be directly held responsible for the actions of the malicious and unconscionable legion, pushing for an agenda, …

…even though a statement from @StandtoEndRape on the unfounded allegations could have been issued to distance their services from the drive of known gender trolls on Twitter. It is unfortunate they didn’t see this as critical.
We cannot be seen to discourage the activist wills of @kikimordi @ChiomaChuka and @AyodejiOsowobi (of STER) et al from helping people in need of urgent intervention – but observing what has occurred in this case – …

…and the omission of the engagement with NAPTIP – the strongest call for a total revamp of SARC processes In Nigeria is imminent. Public trial by media really shouldn’t be Nigeria’s ONLY pivot of investigation and relief.
…End of Celestial Clarification in the Know…
