Gifty Powers, a former Big Brother Naija housmate, is one woman who has continued to keep her fans guessing about not only the identity of her baby’s father but also her marital status.

In an interview with Sunday Scoop, Gifty, however, stated that she was married to an American man.

She said, “I am married and the reason I still have not revealed his (husband’s) identity is that my personal life is extremely priceless and not for sale. My husband is an American and a month after we got married, he suggested that since I am a Nigerian, he would love for us to live in my country. But I declined, due to personal reasons. However, I still have my house and businesses in Lagos and Abuja. The world is deep and for one to have a long-lasting relationship, one must keep it off social media.

“Also, I deliberately kept the birth of my second child a secret for two reasons. One, because I am proud of my two kids and two, I am full of surprises. Not every part of my life is meant for the media. A mother should always be able to protect her children at any cost because the world we live in is delicate. It is better to be safe than to say ‘had I known’.”
Speaking on celebrities who had been accused of snatching people’s spouses, Powers said, “On the issue of celebrities who have been accused of having relationships with other people’s spouses or snatching other women’s husbands, I feel life is full of issues. Everyone has got their stories, so who am I to judge them? As much as it is a sin, there is a story behind every situation. One just has to hear the other side of the story.

“Also, as shocking as it may seem, I am proud of all the mistakes I have made. I have no regrets. But, there is one mistake I am not so proud of. I cannot give many details but it happened in October 2019.”

Boosting banditry business, Katsina Govt appoints Welfare Committee for families of attack Some state governments in the northwest seem to be rolling out policies that would rather boost banditry and contain the menace in the north.

The Deputy Governor of Katsina State, Alhaji Mannir Yakubu, who is chairman of the committee, had disclosed the appointment of the welfare intervention committee by the governor of the state, Aminu Masari.
