Charles Novia reaction about Maheeda

Nollywood movie producer, Charles
Novia will always have a say on
every matter and this time, it's
about the controversial Maheeda,
who has been topic of discussion
on social media because she was
always posting erotic photos of
herself online.
He has voiced out his thoughts on the
self acclaimed gospel singer’s weird
behavior.
He wrote this article
titled: “Maheeda’s maladjustment".

In the past few months, some promine
nt and other bandwagon bloggers have
been inundating the social media space
with inappropriate pictures of a confuse
d personality called Maheeda. From
scanty information available about the
lady, she used to be a prostitute who
got ‘converted’ into Christianity and
later released a Gospel album or some
singles. Somehow, she decided to
straddle the pop culture horse and
brought out some nifty singles and
videos which found backwater accepta
nce on Youtube.
Maheeda is also reported to be married
to a white dude and she is presumed to
be presently living in a European
country with the man and her daughter
(or divorced or seperated from him as
some reports say) I took little pains to
do this background research on her so
as to be well-informed about the next
few points I would make about her
behaviour.
Somehow, Maheeda started posting
suggestive pictures of her body on her
instagram page which caught the
interest of Nigerian bloggers. Since
blogging is generally an acceptable
form of lazy journalism and tittle-
tattling in Nigeria, Maheeda’s pictures
got the desired attention she wanted.
Either by a covert or overt payment to
leading bloggers to keep her in the
news (as it is wont in Nigerian cybersp
ace) or a calculated ploy to garner more
hits to their sites, the bloggers went all
the way out with more indulging
pictures of the young lady. And she
was ever willing to give more and
cheerfully too with no intention by me
to denigrate her past profession by this
phrase.
From suggestive pictures of her near
unclad body parts, the young lady
went on a visual spree of debased
pictures of herself and with the
lecherous or amused oogling of social
media commentators, she finally threw
whatever was left of her indiscreet
womanhood and posted wanton naked
pictures of herself on instagram.
Blogosphere went crazy in Nigeria with
repressed hypocrites heaping accolade
s or abuses at her or ravished reprobat
es asking her to carry on!
Instagram finally had enough a few
days ago and deleted her account for
good for crossing boundaries of (in)
decency, perhaps.
It is instructive to psycho-analyse
negative trenders such as Maheeda
who have decided to gain cheap or
compulsory notoriety by posting
pictures of their nakedness on social
networks. Granted, there were others
before her based in Nigeria or somewh
ere in America , some older Nanny
Goats who threw decorum to the wind
as well and posted pictures of drooping
breasts and disgusting backsides in a
bid to gain unfathomable attention. Did
Maheeda learn from them? Or did she
decide to improve on their art ( or
rather, their tart!)?.
Whatever the reasons are, we all
should be worried about this growing
trend where shamelessness and
wanton exposure of Nigerian women is
fast becoming the order of the day. The
children see all these things and I
shudder to think of what is going to
happen in our social space in a few
years. A replication or cloning of
millions of Maheedas and her likes is
probably inevitable. Oh yes, there are
some who would react angrily to the
fears I have expressed here and post
comments under ‘Anonymous’ name
tags on some blogs where this article
would find amplification and vilify me
and not my points. For such missing
links, you are entitled to your putrid
opinions in the closets of your anonimit
y where cowards and bullies find voice.
But the fact remains that you who
support and urge the Maheedas of this
clime to carry on with the de-mystifica
tion of all that is dear and sacrosanct
womanhood, are no better than she is.
You are intertwined in the pugnancy of
her putrid purpose. You both are
destroyers of the last remnants of the
African woman’s mystique and
majesty. You support and encourage
her to destroy your children’s moral
future. That is just the plain truth.
I may not know much about
psychology or psychosis but I am
willing to bet that Mrs Maheeda is
in the early stages of bi-polarism. It
is possible that she is using the
pictures to Jekyll and Hyde her
mental health issues. Mercifully, she
lives in a Western society where it is
only a matter of time where her total
sanity would be called to question.
But if Maheeda is not ill, then what is
her plan? Is she possessed by a legion
of seventy times seven demons after
her earlier conversion to Christianity?
Or is she just being plain silly? If she is
being silly, then the blogs and websites
which amplified her silly whims have a
moral question to answer.
But Maheeda is not the only by-product
of a jaundiced country. We have her
likes in the National affairs of this
country. Only, those types don’t have
to post their pictures for us to see.
They are already naked dancers in the
ruinous chambers of national leadersh
ip. They and the mad ones before them
inflicted the pain on the social fibre of
Nigeria which Maheeda was unfortun
ate to grow up in. Their naked dances
of greed and corruption turned Maheed
a and millions like her into Prostitutes
to eke a daily living. Maheeda could
well be paying back the society with
her nakedness, spoiling the children of
the new Nigeria as a vengeance eats
her. She just might be saying, ‘ as una
spoil my life, me sef go spoil una pikin
own’. And stupidly the children of her
vengeful mission oogle and applaud.
It is not also far-fetched too that
Maheeda might be using the naked
pictures of herself as a new form of
visual prostitution. Selling her body ,
now revamped and refurbished in a
new clime, to her former clients as if to
call them out. She might be saying,
‘You can’t have this now. I have gone
to another level’.
Indeed, she has reached a new
level. An all-time low of self-
destruction in a gradual
process. But knowing the society in
which I live and where she comes from,
her destruction may be pyrhic: the sick
social society would soon invite her to
red carpet functions and events. Soon,
she just might be signing autographs
and strutting societal streets of false
adulation.
Then she would have have the last
laugh. Or perhaps maybe society and
fate have one last wince to elicit from
her.
Time has a way of telling, though.

12year-old girl commits suicide in Ebonyi State.

12-year-old girl, Miss Chisom
Okechukwu, has committed suicide,
hanging herself at her family
compound at Nnoche-Uduke
Community in Okpoitumo in the Ikwo
Local Government Area of Ebonyi.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports
that Okechukwu, a primary five pupil at
Nnoche-Uduke Primary School, was said
to have left home on Saturday and was
not seen until Sunday morning,
hanging on a tree at the back of her
compound.

Her dangling body was discovered by
her younger sister, Ndidi, who was
going to the toilet dug at the back of
the compound.

An eye-wtness, who spoke on condition
of anonymity, disclosed that Ndidi
raised an alarm which attracted their
parents and other members of the
community who came and brought her
down.“The whole scenario brought
tension and confusion in the
community as people were seen in
clusters discussing the death.
“People,
especially some members of
Okechukwu’s family are of the opinion
that she did not commit suicide and
insisted on a thorough investigation to
unravel the true cause of her death,’’
said the witness.
He claimed that a neighbour to the
Okechukwu family had reported to the
girl’s parents that she stole her egg
which made them to beat her.“After
the incident, Okechukwu went inside
their house, changed into her new cloth
and left the house only to be seen
dangling lifeless on a tree on Sunday,’’
he said.

An elder in the community, Mr Friday
Itumo, told NAN that the incident had
brought confusion to the community as
such a tragedy had never been
experienced before in the community.

“Mr Okechukwu is not the girl’s
biological father as her mother came in
with her when she re-married Mr
Okechukwu after her former husband’s
death.“Her former husband’s family
members are now insisting that Mr
Okechukwu should provide their
daughter alive and this has
compounded the problem,” he said.
Hundreds of sympathisers were seen
trooping in and out of the compound,
including her school mates who were
visibly shocked by her sudden death.
The Ebonyi State Police Command
Public Relations Officer, ASP Chris
Anyanwu, confirmed the incident,
saying that the matter was reported to
the Police Division in Ikwo.

“We have commenced investigation
into the girl’s death to ascertain why
she should engage in such act.“We
can’t confirm that she committed
suicide because one can be killed and
hanged by his or her killer, to claim
that the person committed suicide.“We
assure her family, members of the
community and the whole state that we
would get to the root of this matter,’’
he said.
The girl’s body has been deposited at
the Onueke General Hospital Mortuary
in the Ezza South Local Government
Area for autopsy.
May her soul RIP.
