Published

Controversy is surrounding the death of a popular dancer and video vixen, Love Divine, popularly known as Picturekodak, who was allegedly electrocuted on Wednesday.

Picturekodak was allegedly electrocuted around 9pm while charging and operating her phone.

Our correspondent learnt that the victim was on set in the house of a video director, Clarence Peters, in the Omole Phase 1 area of Lagos State when the incident happened.

However, mixed reactions have greeted the news of her death on the social media.

While some urged the relevant authorities to investigate the circumstances of her death, others believed that she died of a natural cause.

A Twitter user, @pdominic77, called on the Lagos State Government to carry out an autopsy on the deceased.

He tweeted, “#ripkodak one thing I know is that the death of this girl doesn’t sit right in my head. Which one is she died charging her phone bla bla bla. Please Lagos do autopsy check for drugs, strangulation marks etc I don’t trust most of this directors. I know what I’m saying.”

Another Twitter user, Christopher Umukoro, wrote, “Conspiracy theory should simply play out here. Something just ain’t right to me. Habba! Forensic evidence would have shown otherwise if this were a more developed country.”

An Instagram user, with the name @ogamaestro said, “Man Clarence needs to explain to us what happened o. Walahi!

“Rest Well LD. Sad day for the entertainment industry. This one hit home.”

A Twitter user, @Rukyluv29, wrote, “To prevent cell phone electrocution: Never charge your smartphone in the bathroom or near water. Don’t let extension cords or chargers come in contact with water. Never use extension cords or chargers with frayed wires. Kodak #ripkodak.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, who confirmed the incident, said the corpse had been deposited in the morgue for autopsy.

“The case was reported at the Ojodu Police Station around 1am. The report we got was that she was electrocuted while charging and operating her iPhone. We have taken the body to the mortuary for autopsy,” he stated.

One of Picturekodak’s colleagues, Otunba Bolaji, who claimed to stay very close to Clarence Peter’s house, stated that he heard when the incident happened but never knew who the victim was.

He said, “I stay close to Clarence Peters’ house, so I heard about the death shortly after it happened on Wednesday night. Earlier on Thursday, I had heard a rumour that a lady slumped and died. I didn’t know she was the one being referred to. When I got to know that she was the one, I felt very sad because I realised that I wouldn’t see her again.

“I don’t work with Peters, so I don’t know the nature of their relationship, or what she was doing in his house.

“I met her when an artiste, Junior Boy, shot a music video and we were both in it. We were not very close but she was a friendly girl and everybody can testify to that.”

However, calls put across to Peters by one of our correspondents were unanswered.

Davido and Chioma: The Way the Cookies Crumble

Published

on

By Eric Elezuo

When the romance between Nigeria’s popular pop artiste, Davido, and his beautiful girlfriend started, two diverse opinions emerged from two different sects. One group was of the opinion that this was a love made in heaven and Davido has finally found something he loves; something that could keep him settle. Chioma was his assurance, they said. The other group was simple nonchalant and lackadaisical, claiming that like other celebrity romances, Davido and Chioma will have their day, and call it quits, either by violent or peaceful separation. The former, like always, has happened.

Not many were surprised to see Chioma deleting the last of her photos with Davido on Instagram this Friday. The action depicts one; the love has gone sour.

The story behind the meeting of these two former crazy love birds has remained sketchy, but no one will deny that it was hot; so hot that it seems that Davido had finally found a nest, a reliable one for that matter. He found love in Chioma, and who wouldn’t. Chioma was temptingly beautiful, with every curve in the right corner. She was well learned and to cap it all, is a chef of great repute. Everything looked perfect like the fairy tale setting.

In 2018, Davido expressed his love in his lyrics, when he released Assurance, solely to Chioma and the love they share. He followed it up with an expensive gift.

Davido, had during a party he organised to celebrate Chioma’s 23rd birthday, presented her N45m Porsche car as a surprise birthday gift. The car came with a plate number that reads ‘Assurance’ .

The singer disclosed to guests that he has known Chioma over the last five years and plan to spend the rest of his life with her.

Early in 2019, the FEM crooner proposed to Chioma and later that year, they welcomed a baby boy, prompting the couple to host a traditional marriage ceremony that deceived the world that the chicken has come home to roost.

But trouble was brewing. Then entered the battle raging among Davido and his cronies, King Patrick and Perruzi over alleged contract breach. Then revelations began to see the light of the day.

Peruzzi’s former boss, King Patrick made a damning allegation against the musician, claiming that Peruzzi and Chioma Avril are not cousins as many people had been made to believe.
King Patrick, a record label owner who sometime ago signed singer, Peruzzi accused him of making an escape route from his label without legal authorization to sign for Davido’s DMW label.
While King Patrick accused Peruzzi of lying against him. He said he never gave Peruzzi authorization to sign for Davido’s record label.
An angry Davido intervened and indirectly accuse King Patrick of being a crackhead who is depressed and urged him to get help.
In retaliation, King Patrick revealed that Perruzzi had been sleeping with Chioma, and they are not counsins as believed. The bubble bursts. Things have been the same between Davido and his Davido ever since. They instantly unfollowed each on social media.

The last straw that seems to break the camel’s back was the ‘intrusion’ of Instagram model, Mya Yafai, who has been romantically linked to Davido. The duo has been caught on camera holding hands, and of recent, were caught kissing passionately.

In one of the photos which was reportedly taken at a party they both attended in the United States, the rumoured couple locked lips.

Davido’s closeness to Yafai further sparks speculations that all was not with his relationship with his fiance Chioma.

But like James Hadley Chase would say, that is the way the cookies crumble.

Queen Peezy shamelessly made a bold claim on ‘Vibes In 5’ channel that before Patapaa tied the knot with his German wife, the musician actually requested for them to have sex.

“Before Patapaa would marry, we slept together,” she claimed in an interview with Arnold Mensah on Vibes In 5’. “He pleaded with me and slept with me in Accra. That was 3 weeks to his wedding”.

According to her, even though she had heard a number of reports about Patapaa’s affair with his then German girlfriend, Liha, she never thought it was that serious or she would have gotten pregnant for him.

She said Patapaa and her were happy until the “One Corner” hitmaker travelled abroad for shows.

“Patapaa and I were happy and okay before this lady came on the scene. Things got worse when he travelled abroad. Just after coming back, he changed totally… If I had known that they would marry another woman, I wouldn’t have wasted my time on him” she added.
