Unfortunately, Sam’s health deteriorates drastically, and soon, he slips into a coma, with only a few days to live. Dr. Durant becomes desperate, willing to risk anything to save the child’s life.

The hospital medical board immediately orders an investigation and soon the secret is revealed and Dr. Durant is suspended. Dr. Bello is arrested and charged with medical malpractices. Dr. Durant soon falls into depression after his wife leaves him. Meanwhile, Dr. Bello has fallen critically I’ll in jail and can only be saved by the ingestion of that same potion that can only be found in the mysterious “garden of life” nestled on the peak of Nigeria”s sky mountains

He has had enough? Ramsey Nouah plans to quit acting, go behind the scenes

Ramsey, wife (Emilia) and kids
Its been a while since he's been on the big screen, Nollywood's lover boy Ramsey Nouah has revealed in an intervieew with TheNETng that he doesn't intend to be in movies forever.

"I think I've had my fair share. To my fans and loved ones, I know they'll always want to see me on screen, but as they say, it's best to leave when the ovation is loudest. I want to leave a very strong legacy. I believe I have left a very strong imprint in that line. There's no possible way you can mention 'Nollywood' without mentioning Ramsey Nouah." He told TheNETng.com

Asked what he would do afterwards, the 38 year old Actor said, "Well, I'll be going behind the scenes. I'll still be acting a bit here and there, but it will phase out for directing eventually. For a while now, I've not really been on the screen, and that's because I don't want to act just because I want to be on TV. I only want to be associated with the kind of movies that are poised to take the industry to another level, which is were we are headed now. Plus, I want to focus on working behind the scenes."

Humanitarian activities and charitable ventures. I started a project at one point in time, but due to circumstances I wasn't able to see it through, so it didn't see the light of day, but I'm working on that now and getting the resources together. Like I said, I grew up not having much, so I know the pains. Sometimes you want to help, but greedy people hijack it and in the end, the people who really need the help don't get it.

What do you think of Ramsey's thoughts on retiring?

JJC angered by Dbanj's comment: Dbanj is the bad seed

"I learnt. A lesson today. Never speak in anger. And ppl (people) please let the sleeping dwag lay. Leave my name off your lips." JJC tweeted yesterday, following the response he's been getting from fans after the Nigezie interview.
I'm sure most of you have already seen the dbanj interview, and you read that part where he said JJC cheated on Don Jazzy. Well, this comment has angered Uk-based Nigerian rapper JJC. In an interview with Nigezie, JJC talks about the mohits saga, takes sides with don jazzy

"I started doing JJC and 419 squad which was a squad of people that was speaking and rapping in yoruba.
Along the way, MP took a guy called D'Banj to my house and D'Banj came as normal up and coming artiste normally do, "baba, please your name is big, please help me".

Yeah, and of course ,like the mugu,fool, mumu button activated JJC, I introduced him to my band. what can you do? He sang, I said that is not really good. The harmonica that you play is really good, lets work on that one and develop your style.

Along the way, another guy called Kas brought Don Jazzy to my house and Don Jazzy at that time was playing for Solek as a piano player. D'Banj and Don Jazzy were now working with me. The thing that upset me in the (dbanj's) article was that they were

working for (me for) four years and didn't get anywhere.
You tell me where else you could be. I took all of them to Womad, which is biggest African world stage they could be. We were performing in every single show there that was possible. Anything that was happening, JJC and 419 was doing it.

Dbanj tells all about Don Jazzy split!

There is always another side to a story. While the rest of us still weep about the split, dbanj talks about where it went wrong with Don Jazzy. Dbanj has broken his long silence on why he and Don Jazzy split in an in-depth and revealing interview with well-respected entertainment journalist Ayeni Adekunle (TheNetng.com)

 London is D’banj’s town. He’s performed there over and over, his single ‘Oliver Twist’ is on the A-list at Choice FM, and enjoys heavy rotation on other stations. A day before I came, he spent hours doing interviews at the Universal offices in Kensington. Some might hail D’banj as the man championing the gospel of ‘Afrobeats’ across the world. But, just like the cab driver, London does not yet know D’banj.

As we walk into the Choice FM building in the afternoon on Saturday, there are no heads turning or fans gazing. In fact, his lawyer, Elias, who wore a pair of loud snakeskin boots, attracted more attention than D’banj.

9ice has ended his business relationship with longtime manager Dehinde Fajana (Modef) after 10 years of working together. It's not clear why 9ice may have decided to professionally part ways with his manager.

Dehinde confirmed in a recent interview
that the decision to stop working together was mutual, but adds that they still remain good friends. Dehinde played down the separation, saying it was a move in the interest of 9ice trying new approach...

9ice ending a relationship plagued by controversy ever since he broke up with his babymama, Toni payne has raised eyebrows.

Toni Payne once accused Dehinde of breaking up her marriage with 9ice. 9ice's split from manager comes amid rumours that he's reunited with his babymama. This has kept the reconciliation rumour alive and kicking. This rumor sounds crazy since Dehinde has done so well with 9ice. Only time will what this really means for his career.

There's no word yet on who'll replace Dehinde Fajana as 9ice's manager.

Ok. This ought to get interesting
