-New lover, Nikky Berry now heavily pregnant!

Embattled movie and music promoter, Kazeem Olasunkanmi Oluwaseun Olajide, popularly called Seun Egbeegbe, spent exactly 100 days in detention on Friday, May 12, 2017, and still counting. Having failed to perfect his bail conditions on the second crime he allegedly committed on Thursday, February 2, 2017,  he and his accomplice, Ayo Oyekan (who were picked up by the police around 1 pm at Gbagada, Lagos, for attempting to swindle two bureau de change  operators of N6.3 m) are still cooling off at Ikoyi Prisons.

The popular entertainment financier is languishing at the general cell of the prison, while his family members, we gathered, are still struggling to ensure his release.

A close source revealed to Encomium Weekly that things are generally on the down side at the moment for Egbeegbe’s business outfit, Ebony Films Productions, as the continued detention of its CEO has paralysed activities at the hitherto bubbling entertainment base which used to be operating from Jabita Intercontinental Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos.

According to the source, almost all the followers and employees of the Ogun born entrepreneur have left, leaving him to carry ‘his cross’ all alone.

The source also revealed that one of his exotic automobiles has been put for sale.

“Things are not as expected at all. He earlier thought it was a child’s play. It’s now he understands better the kind of situation he is in. I learnt his family has since been running from pillar to post to ensure he gets out of detention, but their efforts are yet to yield the desired results as nobody yet is ready to stand as surety for him because of the stringent conditions attached.

“Nothing is going on at Ebony Films Productions any more since Seun has been in detention because without Seun there is no Ebony. Even his earlier p!an to bring in ultramodern equipment from Dubai, United Arab Emirates and open  a new office at Balogun market, Ikeja, can’t be realised again even if he’s out of that place.

I learnt he was arrested along side Seun’s close aide, Kazeem (KC). They are all in detention now. So, his matter has been compounded. With the situation now, he will only be coming to court from Ikoyi Prisons where he’s being remanded.

“Now, the frequency of the people visiting him in the prison has reduced drastically. All his friends and followers have gone under. They are afraid of being implicated. It’s only his wife, parents and a couple of others that visit him now. They still prepare his food from home mainly.

“Most of his girlfriends and those he suppots financially have deserted him. But now, l learnt his new lover, Nikky Berry is heavily pregnant. She is the only girl left with him now. She really stands by him all through his travails.”

Seun Egbeegbe was first arrested on Tuesday, November 22, 2016 for theft of nine iphones valued at N2.4m at Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos. He was detained at Area F Command, Ikeja where he was moved to Ikeja Magistrate court, Ikeja.

The pencil slim socialite and entertainment promoter was granted bail on the offence by Mrs O. Y. Aje Afunwa of Rosaline Omotoso Court in GRA Ikeja, on Thursday, November 24, 2016, when he was arraigned. He was released on Friday, November 23, 2016 after perfecting his bail conditions.

On Saturday, November 26, 2016, the Abeokuta, Ogun born influential showbiz promoter was given a loud welcome soiree by his friends, followers and well wishers who besieged his Olowu, Ikeja, Lagos, rented flat. Even his parents were also in attendance. Everybody at the event drank and rejoiced, happy that their benefactor eventually regained freedom despite the rumour that he spent a night in Kirikiri prisons which he denied when Encomium Weekly had a chat with him. Almost all the attendees at the wecome party blamed Egbeegbe’s action on the devil. Some even alleged he was charmed.

However, to the uttermost surprise of his fans, friends, admirers and family, while standing trial on the case, Egbeegbe still went ahead and allegedly committed another weighty crime on Thursday, February 2, 2017. This time around, he and one of his boys, Ayo Oyekan attempted to flee with $9,000 (N4,5m) and £3,000 (N1.8m). Consequent upon that,  the former boyfriend of popular thespian, Toyin Aimakhu was again arrested and detained. He and his accomplice, Ayo Oyekan were charged for Advanced Fee Fraud (419) before Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo of Federal High Court 8 in Ikoyi, Lagos. The offence they are still being remanded for at Ikoyi Prisons as they are yet to perfect their bail conditions.
