Stella Damasus Addresses Rumours Concerning Her Secret Wedding

Nollywood diva, Stella Damasus, on Thursday took to the social media to address the ongoing rumors that she is secretly married.

The actress and songstress who recently celebrated her birthday in style was rumored to have married a movie producer and director, in a secret wedding in New York and lives there.

Here’s what she says about it:

I have been trending for the past two days now. Day one was about people wishing me well and praying for me on my birthday. Day two is now filled with gossip, scandals and all sorts, but that is as far as the so called journalists and bloggers are concerned. As far as I am concerned I had a blast on my birthday and I will not allow other human beings steal my joy regardless.

I choose to enjoy my life because I know I deserve it. Nobody went through my own trying times with me and I did not go through any with others.
When God decides to bless me, turn my mourning to dancing, turn my tears to laughter and turn my anger to happiness, no man on earth can change it or spoil it.

Truth is, I laughed when I saw some of the blogs and websites quoting and saying things they know absolutely nothing about. Writing things they have heard without concrete evidence, ghosts that cannot show their faces and ask direct questions. But they believe and think that they can wake up one day and decide people’s fate and destiny. Unfortunately they are made to feel important because people hate to read positive things and achievements, but give them juicy gossip and all of a sudden you become the most popular writer who has gist on everybody.

I realized that when I write blogs and articles about important information, encouragement, education and positive things, only twenty percent out of a hundred actually read it and leave comments. The other eighty percent jump at the gossip and scandals and then start to ask me stupid questions. These are people who have not communicated with me in ages but all of a sudden they feel the need to profess undying friendship and a listening ear. The fact that they believe I have the time or energy to respond to the most trivial issues baffles me.

Let me repeat myself in case some of these people missed it. “I really do not care what you say or write, the truth is who God has blessed no man can curse” , and if you believe that trying to turn a wonderful birthday into a global gossip game will make me feel bad then I am so sorry this Stella is not as stupid as you think”.

Below are pictures from her birthday party.

“God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not meant to be

Movie Review: Two Brides and a Baby

The much talked about Nollywoood blockbuster, Two Brides and a Baby turned out as beautiful as expected. The movie was a beautifully crafted romantic comedy about a couple, Keche (Keira Hewatch) and Kole (OC Ukeje) who planned for a beautiful wedding ceremony and hoped for a blissful life thereafter….until the unexpected happens!

It all began on the day before the wedding, during the wedding rehearsal, surrounded by friends and family when the groom’s ex girlfriend (Stella Damasus) suddenly showed up, bringing along a basket full of drama.

Cupboard full of secrets were soon opened, exposing the concealed reactions of everyone directly involved, including a challenged married couple (Deji and Ene) and a troubled engaged couple (Ugo and Maye).

I particularly enjoyed the Deji character played by Kalu Ikeagwu and Ene character played by Blessing Effiom. The musical background was a beautiful one too however, the Omo character played by Claret Onukogu was too fake besides the conflict was resolved too easily.

Two Brides and a Baby was written and produced by Blessing Effiom,and directed by the Teco Benson. The movie cast comprises Stella Damasus, Kalu Ikeagwu , Keira Hewatch, OC Ukeje, Chelsea Eze, Blessing Effiom, Okey Uzoeshi, and Kehinde Bankole.
