Mr Latin Orisabunmi siblings

Popular comedian, Bolaji Amusan, popularly known as ‘Mr Latin who is the president of the Theater Arts and Motion Picture Producers Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) has come out to debunk the raging speculations that veteran actress, Orisabunmi, her brother and sister who died within a space of 3 days to one another may have died of Covid-19 complication. According to Mr Latin who spoke on the phone with Vanguard, the husband of Orisabunmi’s sister has cleared the air that his wife did not die of Covid-19, neither was Orisabunmi nor the elder brother.

Mr Latin revealed that Orisabunmi has been sick for a while and so was the brother who died a day after. The brother, aged 71 was said to have been ill before Orisabunmi and may have given up the ghost upon hearing of his sister’s death. The same situation seemed to have been with the sister who died another day after the brother. According to Mr Latin, the sister was said to have been hypertensive and probably died of heart failure or cardiac arrest upon the news of her sister’s death. The husband of Orisabunmi’s deceased sister claims he has no Covid-19 symptoms and so is the hospital in which his wife died. “If Orisabunmi’s sister had died of Covid-19 the hospital in Ibadan where she died would have been shut down. But it’s business as usual in the hospital,” Mr Latin said.

Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, other American Celebrities Call for Trump’s impeachment



American celebrities have called for the impeachment

American celebrities have called for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, over the violent siege of the Capitol by the president’s supporters, following their statements on their social media platform.

The invasion that took place in the Capitol building by Trump Supporters was said to be incited by comments made by Trump at a rally earlier that day. The invasion disrupted a joint session of Congress who were counting the vote of the Electoral College to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.

Famous American singer, Lady Gaga, called for Trump’s impeachment by stating on her Twitter account, “I hope we focus to impeach Trump so Congress has the constitutional authority to possibly disqualify him from future election—the #25thAmendment doesn’t disqualify him. He incited domestic terror—how much more violence needs to happen? This is terrorism.”


John Legend, a multiple award-winning singer also wrote, “Thank you to the House of Representatives for doing your constitutional duty. Everyone please call your senators and tell them to remove this evil man from office.”

Stevie Wonder also posted, “It is time for the leaders of this country to invoke the 25th Amendment. Isn’t it obvious? Today has made me sad with disbelief with what is happening in my country, a country that has inspired my songs of hope and love.”

Actor Jon Cryer tweeted, “Impeach him. Remove him. Arrest him. Try him.”
Also, Ava DuVernay, an American filmmaker also tweeted, “We are dressed and ready for the #ImpeachmentParty. What are you wearing?”
