Lady narrates how she was saved by Paul of Psquare

This is what the upcoming actress posted
How @rudeboypsquare saved me from being evicted from my saloon. So many people might know me as “the girl weh cry for psquare” , but am also an up and coming actress and stylist. Recently my saloon rent expired and couldn’t pay, begged my landlady to give me sometime but she complained bitterly that she needs to pay her children’s school fees. The pressure was much, business was not moving, and the only person who would’ve helped me out (my mom) had not received her salary since February. One day I woke up and was moved to contact rudeboypsquare, though we haven’t met officially but we chatted sometime in april after releasing that video (pleading for psquare to reunite and work things out). I contacted him and explained everything to him, he replied immediately and asked for my account detials The next day I got an alert from him. The essense of writing this is to show him how grateful I am for the prompt response …., @rudeboyosquare thanks for being a brothers keeper. God bless you more and more and more with more #bankalert, Amen.@rudeboypsquare @rudeboyrecordz @peterpsquare @mamuzee2

Tiwa Savage on haters......"Not everybody loved Jesus Christ, so who is Tiwa Savage in the scheme of things"

The singer who recently signed a deal with Jay Z' Roc Nation granted Punch an interview where she talked about a host of things from what makes her happy to the famous Mo'hits Don Jazzy and D'banj beef split and more. Excerpts......
Her deal with Jay Z' Roc Nation.....
I really don’t think the international deal was what broke Mo’Hits. I would not like to think that and I don’t think any of us can really talk about that issue because it is only the two of them that really know what happened between them. For me, this is a blessing and I would not allow something that happened before to make me nervous. Maybe this is a way for us to get a second chance as Nigerian artistes and second chances rarely happen,” she said.
