Nobody should come after me because I referred to her as a maid, because that’s what Tonto calls her. Even in her caption this morning she still said the same thing. Her fans have warned her in the past that it’s not right to call someone a maid, but Tonto says, they should get civilized and there’s nothing wrong in calling her that.

She also spoke to Vanguard about trying to raise money for her daughter online for school, saying it was only a stunt. Hear her, I’m Afrocandy, I can’t be broke. I’m a star how can a star be broke. Finally she spoke about her husband and their reconciliation after 19years. Find that after the cut. Strong woman though!

Police Involvement In DaGrin's Death Uncovered By Sahara Reporters

July 26, 2014 0 Comments
The circumstances which led to the death of DaGrin
in 2010 have now been revealed to be part of a disturbing
pattern of illegal activity by police at Alakara Station in
Mushin.
The eyewitnesses, who said they were first to
reach the scene of the road crash to assist, insist
that Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun also known as "Dagrin" did
not drunkenly crash into a truck parked at the side of the
road as put out by police.
Instead, the truck driver had been stopped in the middle of
the road by Police who were demanding bribes. Unfortunately,
the truck had no back lights and the late musician had
plowed into it unknowingly.
They said the policemen deliberately covered-up their role in
the accident, by recreating an artificial accident scene by the
side of the road for the world to see the next morning.
A young witness, a man, agreed to speak with
SaharaReporters on the condition of anonymity.
"I was there that night, and we did not even know at
first that it was anyone (famous) like that. We were
only helping to remove his body and to rescue him.
What actually happened that night was that the
policemen had stopped the cement truck at the middle
of road, and of course, they could only be asking for a
bribe.
Unfortunately, the truck had no rear light, (of any kind,)
and so the oncoming car was unaware of any vehicle
ahead. It just rammed head on, into it from the back. It
rammed into the truck hard without holding the brakes
at all, and that is because the truck in its front, had no
light to show anything was there."
"So after we removed the body, we realized it was Da
Grin, and he was groaning. They asked the truck driver
to move forward and park out off of the road. They then
moved Da Grin's car afterwards so it would then look
like he went to hit the truck where it parked.
"We were not thinking about all these as an attempt to
change the story. We were only concerned about helping
the victim of an accident, and by when they finished
their artificial story, the world was only waiting for Da
Grin's recovery. But news broke later that he had died
at the hospital.
"What made their story work was that the car did not
hold its breaks, so there was no sign of screeching on
the ground. Otherwise, the marks of friction from the
tyres would be in the spot where it was removed, before
parking it, and rearranging the scene.
"They did everything very fast, and by morning, they
were no longer the cause of the accident.) Just like on
Tuesday night, that they scared everyone away, and
washed the blood stains of their victim within a brief
period," the young man continued.

"Of course, they caused the accident that killed Da
Grin. And that is how they commit so much atrocities
here in Mushin that the public will not know about, or
what the truth is. We live here and we see them live,
every time. "

Another killing allegedly by policemen at the Alakara Police
Station occurred on Tuesday night of this week, further
triggering their grief, and provoked them to expose that police
atrocity, and approach SaharaReporters.

That killing, as well, was covered up say the sources, in order
that residents in the community, and people outside, would
not know of it.

The Alakara policemen are described as very apt, and swift, in
immediately ‘cleaning up’ their dirty business, leaving behind
little, to no evidence, of their atrocities, several sources have
told a SaharaReporters correspondent.
