“Most Useless Airline” – Nkechi Blessing Fumes As She Calls Out Airpeace, Gives Them Ultimatum

Published

on

Nollywood actress Nkechi Blessing has called out popular airline Airpeace.

Taking to her Instagram page, she revealed that she had a flight scheduled for 1 pm, which they shifted to 3 pm, yet she didn’t throw tantrums. On getting to the airport, she learnt that the flight time had been once again shifted to 5:20 pm, and it was uncertain if they would take off at that time. Nkechi noted how this is the 6th time she would be having the same experience with the airline.

“I am going to try to be as calm as I can get. I have already exhausted my strength at the airport even though I didn’t display too much. I just showed them that I was angry and left.


Airpeace, how do you explain moving a 1 pm flight to 3 pm? 2 o’clock I left my house for the airport because the distance is just 2 minutes, and I learnt that the flight has once again been moved to 5:20 pm, which means that the time isn’t certain. This isn’t the first time Airpeace is doing this to me. This is actually the 6th time. You guys will move flights from one time to another and another, and then you will end up cancelling that flight. Which means everybody’s appointments, meetings, and business just went like that. Then someone will now tell me it’s your brother.

The only time we will have a problem is if I don’t get my refund”.

Calling the airline, the useless of all, she told them to refund her money before the end of the day, or they would see her wrath.

“Na God, go really help me punish @flyairpeace.

Most useless airline in the world goes to @flyairpeace na ogun go kee una if I no see my refund before the end of today bloody phools”.

@flyairpeace, you cannot continue to play with people’s emotions, time and money..262k na small money, but I want it ASAP, as I take rush pay am na the same speed I take want collect my money…Thank you very much

”Liam’s Greatest Enemy Is His Grandfather” – Mohbad’s Widow Wunmi Reveals

Published

on

The chronicles of the drama surrounding the late Mohbad’s son seems to be far from over, as his widow Wunmi recently took to Instagram to throw direct shade at her father-in-law.

In a hastily deleted post, Wunmi wrote that Liam’s greatest enemy was his grandfather, and that life is funny.

It is no news that Wunmi and Mohbad’s father aren’t on best of terms since the late singer’s death, and the crux of their issue lays in the fact that Wunmi has refused to conduct a DNA test on Liam.

Ever since Mohbad’s death, the singer’s father has been quite persistent on getting a DNA test to ascertain that Liam is actually his grandson.

On several occasions, he has granted interviews, calling out Wunmi over her refusal to get the DNA test done. At some point, the matter reached the law courts.

Mohbad’s father isn’t the only person demanding for a DNA test, as online in-law Very Dark Man has also vehemently insisted that Liam isn’t Mohbad’s son, and that a DNA test should be conducted.

Very Dark Man’s quest for a DNA test for Mohbad’s son Liam created a rift between himself and Iyabo Ojo because both of them were on opposing sides.

Iyabo Ojo couldn’t be bothered over a DNA test, as her main concern was getting justice for Mohbad’s death. At some point, she accused Very Dark Man of thwarting her investment with the police by bringing up the DNA test.

The drama surrounding Mohbad’s death has been nothing but chaotic, with the likes of Naira Marley and Sammy Larry being accused of having a hand in his death.

Sam Larry is still facing the ire of millions of Nigerians, and randomly getting cussed out at any given opportunity.

A while ago, Sam Larry survived a car.
