Published

on

Olawale Babatunde Animashaun better known as Wale Poh Poh, head of presentation at the popular Max FM radio station and also the anchor of prime time show, Wetin Dey shares some experiences where his iconic deep voice has come to his rescue.

He went down memory lane on how his voice once saved him from being attacked by street boys in the United States of America.

“It’s a two-way thing when it comes to my voice. It has helped me out in times of trouble and I can also say I have had reasons to be embarrassed over it also. I recall it once saved me in the US.

“There was a time when I was in the US and I was at a bus stop… I just came out of the train and it was late and these bad guys were coming towards me. Immediately they got close to me and I spoke and that was all. They had to retreat because the voice they heard really got them scared”.

“My voice also commands respect, especially with police men. Once they stop me and I go like, ‘good evening, can I help you?’ They go like, ‘sorry sir! Dey go!’ (Laughs)”, he added.

Wale also talked about some embarrassing moments he’s had to deal with on account of his deep voice.

One thing I must state is that I know I can’t do news. I did news once and my oga back then in Ray Power warned me never to do news again in my life. I think the most embarrassing one for me was a day we went clubbing and I came back about 4 or 4.30am in the morning; I was tired and about to sleep then my phone rang and when I picked the phone from my sleepy mode and I go like, ‘Hello…’ and the person was like, ‘blood of Jesus’ and hung up immediately (General Laughter). I must say that was really embarrassing.”

Why My Marriage To Don Jazzy Crashed – Ex-wife

Published

on

By

Michelle Jackson, the ex-wife of ace Nigerian music producer, Michael Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy, has revealed why their marriage crashed.

The PUNCH reports that Michelle, who is a United Kingdom-based model, returned to Nigeria in late April, 2022.

In an interview with Naija FM published on Friday, Michelle noted that music “got in the way” of her union with Don Jazzy, leading to the end of their two-year marriage.

“He just needed to go and be himself and go and do his music. Music got in the way of the relationship. We were very young as well,” Michelle said.

She added, “If I were in the same situation now, it might have been very different.”

The model noted that she was almost 22 years old at the time of the union.

When Don Jazzy first broke the news of his marriage in April last year, he revealed that he got married at 20 and ended the marriage when he was 22.

Michelle, who was also a singer, noted that she and Don Jazzy were both pursuing their music careers at the same time, adding that things became different when popular Nigerian singer, Abdulrasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skills, discovered her ex-husband.

She said, “We were both pursuing their music careers at the same time and then he got discovered by JJC Skillz. So it took him out of the home a lot more. I tried to put my music on the back burner to try and balance my home life. But he was ‘very’ into the music and it kind of got into the way.”

Her claims are not different from that of the producer who had earlier revealed that he gave up his marriage to pursue music.

“Music became a priority instead of my family,” Don Jazzy had said.

Following her recent visit to Lagos, Michelle had linked up with Don Jazzy.
