Popular Blogger, Kemi Olunloyo, Shuts Down After Comments By Her Father – Guess What He Said


BEVERLY HILLS, July 8, (THEWILL) – Popular Blogger, Kemi Omololu Olunloyo, has decided that she would no longer practice journalism in Nigeria.

She made this known in a statement on her blog, apparently in reaction to her father’s statement, on Thursday, where he revealed that Kemi, 52, had a history of mental illness and efforts to moderate her erratic behaviour have been fruitless.

The Second Republic Governor of old Oyo State, Omololu Olunloyo, described statements credited to his daughter as utterly irresponsible, libellous and repeatedly painful, as he apologised to everyone who had been attacked by his daughter.

“I would like to apologise without reservation to all persons affected. I hope and pray they would graciously accept the apology,” he wrote.

“There seems to be a curious pair of writers, an Aboderin resident in Ireland and Kemi Olunloyo, who sometimes curiously act separately and sometimes in union. Some of their most unfortunate victims are their half siblings.

“Others of higher status in the society – President Obasanjo and quite recently, clergy men with large respectable following, such as the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye, a brilliant fellow mathematician, an inspired Bishop Oyedepo, the inimitable Reverend T.B Joshua, all learned men.

“She includes me, her father. All four of us she dubs ritualists. Of course, none of us, as far as I know, is anything of sort. She has gone so far as to accuse us of various sexual crimes and gone too far to give social media itself a very dubious name, in term of uncontrolled freedom to assault others.

“Of Late, in the last four weeks or so, she had had the audacity to pass irrelevant and hopeless comments on one of our national talented artists, Prince Jide Kosoko, whom I admire so much, calling him a black widower as he has unfortunately lost three wives.

“I had thought at 52, Kemi will further train her mind and cease to be an embarrassment to herself and member of her nuclear, extended family and to the general public.

“I thank pastors and psychiatrists like Dr. Lasebikan, who had gone to great lengths at their own personal cost to restrain her from excesses and recklessness. I dissociate myself entirely form her conducts and statements.

“She must accept responsibility for her actions and utterances as well as the consequences. My condemnation is total and not in any instance defensible. My position is absolutely clear. She has gone too far and needlessly so.”

Reacting, Kemi insisted that she was only interested in true investigative stories but apologised to those offended by her stories.

“It seems like many celebrities and their fans are upset when I write a story about them,” she wrote.

“I live for the truth and nothing more. News is news and not prying into other people’s business. Without news you are uninformed. I opened this page January 25th 2013 and wanna thank everyone who has followed me on social media.

“I will now concentrate on Kemi’s Kids Foundation. I like helping disadvantaged kids in Nigeria. Once again I apologised to all Nigerian celebrities and their fans who felt offended by my stories. They are true investigative stories which is the bitter truth. I’m now moving on.

“I will no longer practice journalism in Nigeria and I will also be cancelling my social media tour in Nigeria.”
