Actress Ejine Okoroafor releases exciting birthday photos

By Ayo Onikoyi

Cossy Ojiakor, Seraphina and others may brandish the biggest boobs in Nollywood and rightly so because of their voluptuous frame. But when it comes to perky towering towers on a light frame, few can hold the torch to Ejine Okoroafor, an actress and filmmaker holding her own in the make-believe world.


Her birthday was on January 4th and the Oguta, Imo State-born beauty served up alluring pictures which have since gone viral, accompanied by the most juicy comments. In most of the pictures Ejine wore a new look, wearing her hair low and pretty much staying as conservative as she could get but when you are as lavishly blessed in the bosom as Ejine there’s little you can do to keep it all wrapped up.

My experience as Oshiomhole’s Chief Protocol Officer- Efex De Entertainer

BY ROTIMI AGBANA

Standup comedian, Efosa Efex Iyamu, has been in the comedy business for several decades and he is not ready to throw in the towel any time soon as he is fully geared up to up his game in the humour making business.


In a chat with Potpourri, Efosa who has been the Chief Protocol Officer to APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, shared his experience so far working with the former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole.

“I have been working with comrade Adams Oshiomhole well over 10-years now, and by the grace of God, I have stayed relevant and on top of my game.

First,  I was his senior special assistant while he was Governor of Edo State and then became his Executive Director, and now I’m his Chief protocol officer as the national chairman of the APC. The Lord has always been there for me and made me stay relevant.

I got my appointment the same week he was sworn in because I stayed in touch and raised the bar for myself in my game. I must say a very big thank you to my boss for the strength, courage and belief in me and my potentials. Comrade Oshiomhole has tutored me and made me grow in all spheres of influence.

my father, my leader for life, a no nonsense man and a man who always wants all of us around him to grow. I had so many experiences from meeting and interacting with different class of peoples both from the presidency to the common man; traveling back and forth all the states of the federation and even out of the country and gaining more political experiences by the day”, he said.

Speaking about his Efosa Iyamu Initiative, a non-governmental foundation established to help the poor and less privileged, he said;

“The Efosa Iyamu initiative is what I have been doing for a long time privately and not because I’m looking for favours from anyone, because I remember someone told me that maybe I was looking for a political position and that was why I started the initiative. I just laughed because I never had that thought.

My philosophy in life is that “If my success cannot make another person successful, then I’m a failure” and “I don’t give because I have too much but because I know what it takes not to have sometimes”. So no matter how little it is, we should be able to give back to our communities and lend a helping hand. I always give back from my salary and what I can gather from friends who really care and can assist us”, he said.

Boring sex life impacts society negatively — Seyi Hunter

BY ROTIMI AGBANA

Call Nollywood screen diva, Seyi Hunter, the ‘Sex goddess’, and you would be most correct because she has proved beyond doubts her passion for helping others achieve sexual bliss.


Little wonder the CEO of Hunters Media and Miss Bikini Nigeria International recently announced the return of her sex vlog, ‘Seyi Hunter Uncensored: Sinful Fridays’, an online platform dedicated to dishing out practical lessons on how to achieve sexual satisfaction.

In a chat with Potpourri, Seyi explained why she decided to put ‘Sinful Fridays’ on hold for sometime.

“I took sometime off to rebrand, seek more knowledge and upgrade myself. I took professional courses in Sex Education and Human Sexuality. So I can confidently say anywhere that I’m a certified Sex Educator”, she said.

Speaking on what to expect now that she is back, she said;

“I’m unveiling fresh episodes of my Vlog which I call ‘Sinfulfriday reloaded’. I’ll be serving my fans fresh and raw episodes every Friday. I’ll be introducing demonstrations too. Any topic I talk about that needs demonstration, I’ll do it myself, just to show them the proper way to do it. The contents are more daring and 100% raw.

Its 2019, nothing is going to hold me back from giving my fans the best of me. I’m starting a sex therapy and counselling session to help people with sexual issues and I’m presently taking a course on sex offenders.

By the time I’m done with that I’m going to start an online/whatsapp support group for sex offenders, paedophiles, child molesters, and rapists. Some of these people want to stop but don’t know how to; while the paedophiles need someone to help them so they don’t become child molesters.

All sex offenders need help. Once they’re done doing their time. They’ll need rehabilitation so I’ll be here waiting to help.”

Confirming Potpourri’s suspicion, she admitted that floating a sex vlog has greatly affected her family members, friends and fans perception of her.

“Of cause my sex Vlog has changed lots of people’s perception about me. Lots of people think for me to come out and talk about sex confidently and in details means I must be very spoilt; you know Nigerians like to pretend.

They condemn you publicly but in private they praise you. My family memers are my biggest fans; especially my mother. She supports everything I do, prays for and encourages me. Few friends I have are also big fans.
