Humpty Dumpty: Peter of P’square slams himself hard on the floor as he slips off the high stage at Beat FM concert last night [Video]

Just few days after his brother Paul Okoye said he has stopped dancing too much to avoid breaking his bones, the other half of the P'Square group, Peter Okoye, fell off the stage while performing at the BeatFM Triple 9 Concert at the Landmark Event Centre in Lagos on Tuesday.

Obviously not looking at the spaced skirting at the edge of the stage, Peter tumbled off the stage with such a might fall! It was a bit serious. We wish him well. The same thing happened to Burna Boy about two years ago at the Headies!

Ini Edo's marriage reportedly crashes, family returns bride price

By Morakinyo Olugbiji

Hope this is not true? First, it was news about Tiwa Savage and hubby, Teebillz having issues. Though I really don't care about that one because Tiwa should have known better, but this sad news being reported all over the internet that our own beautiful actress, Ini Edo's marriage has crashed is worrisome and I seriously hope it's not true.

The marriage which was contracted in 2008 was said to have ended five weeks ago. The actress who has featured in more than 50 movies since the beginning of her career is said to be beaten by her husband all the time because she allegedly cheats on him.

It is reported that the groom's family also added to the whole show because the endowed actress Ini Edo didn't bear a child. They have however made sure that the bride's family returned the earlier bride price that was paid at the inception of the lifetime commitment.

Although the Nollywood actress and her American based hubby Phillips Ehiagwina have split and gone their separate ways, Ini is said to be releasing a press statement soon to that effect, but right now she is in Markudi shooting a movie.

It would be recalled that just recently, Nollywood actor, Desmond Elliot asked fans to pray for the actress who is a Theatre Arts graduate of the University of Calabar to get pregnant before the end of the year.
