Kemi Olunloyo Quits Jounalism As Father Denounces Her For 'Erratic Behaviour'

The Second Republic governor of old Oyo State, Omololu Olunloyo, has denounced his daughter, controversial social media personality Kemi Omololu Olunloyo, for directing verbal attacks at him and other notable individuals. This came day after she announced she's done with Journalism in Nigeria and apologized to all the people that she might have offended with her several controversial write-ups!...

The former leader also revealed in a heart-breaking statement on Thursday that Kemi, 52, had a history of mental illness and several efforts by the family and other well-wishers to moderate her erratic behaviour have been fruitless.

Describing statements credited to his daughter as “utterly irresponsible”, “libelous” and “repeatedly painful”, the octogenarian 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.
Mr. Olunloyo, who was a governor under the banner of the defunct National Party of Nigeria (NPN), said even her family is not safe from Kemi’s public attacks. He specifically mentioned and apologised for Kemi’s attack on former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye, the General Oversea of Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo, and the founder of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, Temitope Joshua.

He also denounced her attack on foremost Nollywood actor, Jide Kosoko, who Kemi had called a ritualist after the recent demise of his third wife.
“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 (like) ex-president Obasanjo and quite recently, clergy men with large respectable following, such as the General Oversea of 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,” the frmer governor, a mathematician, said.
Mr. Ololunyo said Kemi’s “erratic” behaviour had put her in trouble in Ireland and in the United States, and the late Ooni of Ife, Okunade Sijuwade, once bailed her out of jail, Premium Times reports.
“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,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, in an apparent reaction to her father’s statement, Ms. Olunloyo yesterday published her own statement to her “fans” on social media saying she will “no longer practice journalism in Nigeria” and would now focus on her Kemi Kid's Foundation. Click here to read her full statement.

The statement reads:
Today July 7th 2016, I am really SORRY to tell you my fans that I will no longer practice Journalism in Nigeria. It seems like many celebrities and their fans are upset when I write a story about them. 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 Facebook page January 25th 2013 and wanna thank everyone who has followed me on social media.
I will now concentrate on my Kemi's Kids Foundation. I like helping disadvantaged kids
in Nigeria. Pls LIKE the page Facebook.com/Kemiskids. If you follow me on Twitter @KemiOlunloyo is my private page @HNNAfrica my main handle will be there. Facebook.com/KemiOlunloyo is my fan club started by some loyal fans.
Once again I apologize to all Nigerian celebrities and their fans who felt offended by my stories. They are true investigative stories and the bitter truth!
I am now moving on.
I will also be canceling my social media tour in Nigeria. Facebook has changed my page description to Public Figure instead of Journalist as I notified them. There are lots of bloggers and newspapers that can report those stories. Try Sahara Reporters, Breaking Times, Cable NG and Premium Times, Pulse Nigeria, Naij, Daily Post. Don't forget your local newspapers. Nobody has forced me off Journalism on social media. It was my choice. I will never change for anybody. I will be keeping to myself and continue writing for the various foreign media on their platforms. I write online as admin for 4 American TV stations and 2 newspapers.
Thank You, Pls share and I love you all.
