Nigerian actress and comedian, Etinosa Idemudia, has revealed the craziest thing a fan has ever done for her.
The actress, who recently wrote an open letter on ways runs girls can make Nigeria a better place, said a stranger she didn’t know nor ever met recently sent her Range Rover Evoque.
“The craziest thing a fan has done to you, was when a guy I have never met sent me a Range Rover. I’m not good with cars but I think it’s Evoque. It’s crazy because I didn’t even know him”, she said in Sunday Sun report.
The Edo State-born role interpreter also spoke about the sex for roles, grades controversy.
“When I was up and coming, I faced a few sex for role situations, but I was never pressured into doing anything, because I was already informed from film school that things like this would happen. No producer has the right to determine your success. So, as an up and coming girl, I was never desperate.
I rude die! I knew my value. I knew that with time I would break even. I was not in a hurry at all; I later lost respect and contact with such sex for role filmmakers. No, I will not mention names. Not today… Not yet…For now, as a public figure, just like a sales rep or attendant, you have to grow thick skin in order to serve the people better.”

Buhari, Trump are two ‘clueless’ presidents, Wizkid says
Nigerian Singer, Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has joked that the only difference between the President Muhammadu Buhari and U.S. Donald Trump, is their ability to use Twitter.
The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner’s message comes after following the extra-judicial killings by the police in the two countries.
Recall that a black man identified as George Floyd was recently killed in the US by an officer of the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD).
Floyd’s death came amid dust over the alleged killing of Tina, a 16-year-old girl, at Iyana Oworo area of Lagos, by an officer of the Nigerian police.
The two incidents had sparked outrage in Nigeria and across the world with many taking to social media platforms to vent their spleen while demanding for justice.
The 29-year-old took to his Twitter page to lend his voice to condemn police brutality.
“Police is kill black Americans and Nigerian police kill Nigerians. No man can sort this matter. God save us,” he had written on Saturday.
In a follow-up post on Monday, the award-winning singer said the inability of the two leaders to contain the killing of innocent citizens by security operatives was indicative of how “clueless” both of them are.
“Buhari and Trump are same person. Lol. The one different between them is that one knows how to use Twitter than the other. Clueless!,” Wizkid wrote in a mixture of Pidgin and English.
He wrote, “Buhari/Trump same person lol only difference be say one sabi use twitter pass the other. Clueless!.”

Career: Unilorin trains children on anchoring radio talk show
The University of Ilorin management says its radio, 89.3FM has trained some Primary school pupils on methods of anchoring special live broadcasts on the radio.
According to the University of Ilorin Bulletin issued on Monday, the training is part of its sustained effort to promote the community service mandate of the University to its environment.
The publication stated that the children were drawn from various schools within the Tanke Community of Ilorin, the University’s immediate host community.
It stated that the pupils were trained and made to handle most of the routine programmes of the radio station for the day.
“Among the scheduled programmes handled by the pupils were the station’s daily newspaper review programme tagged “Top Highlight”, the various day’s news bulletins in English.
“Also ‘Wednesday Giveaway on Radio’ an audience phone-in programme in which callers win various gift items; as well as Children’s Variety, a discussion programme in which children-related issues were discussed”.
The publication said that at the end of the programmes, the children expressed satisfaction and happiness for having the opportunity to broadcast live on radio.
“They said that the opportunity has ignited the urge in some of them to pursue a career in the journalism profession, especially the broadcast aspect.
“Speaking on behalf of others, Samuel Jato of St. Joseph College, Ilorin, appreciated the management of Unilorin FM for the opportunity given to them to have the first time and professional experience in broadcasting.
“Jato stated that his love for radio has increased while his inquisitiveness to know what is talking on radio means has also been satisfied,” it said.
The publication added that other children who also participated in the special Children’s Day broadcast were Olatundun Olawuyi from Hillspring Montessori School, Tanke; and Adekunle Quadri from C & S College, Sabo Oke, Ilorin.
“Addressing the children after their radio programmes, the Director of Corporate Affairs, University of Ilorin, Mr. Kunle Akogun, stated that the management of the radio station designed the special Children’s Day programme as part of its Corporate Social Responsibilities obligation to the University’s immediate host community.
“He added that this is to identify with the children who are the leaders of tomorrow.
“Akogun pointed out that the programme is also a means of identifying the talents of the kid-participants toward assisting them to make a viable career choice early in life,” it said.
Akogun also advised the children to face their studies squarely and plan adequately for their future.
“He also advised them to set realistic goals for themselves, a situation which he said will make them focus more on result-oriented programmes on radio and television rather than just watching movies and listening to frivolous programmes.
“Also speaking, the Ag. Station Manager of Unilorin FM, Mr. Idris Alooma, appreciated the Director of Corporate Affairs, for his prompt approval of the special Children’s Day programme on the radio station when it was proposed to him.
“Alooma, however, advised primary and secondary schools in Kwara to establish press clubs in their various schools, which he said will enhance the student’s learning process and bring the positive aspect of the society closer to them in their various schools”.
