A Nigerian adult movie star has been arrested and charged for allegedly recording a porn movie in a sacred grove.

On Monday when he was brought before a Magistrates’ Court, Tobiloba Jolaosho, popularly known as King Tblak HOC, was remanded in custody by the court for violating the Osun-Osogbo sacred grove in Nigeria’s Osun State.

Magistrate Isola Omisade of Magistrates’ Court in Osogbo remanded the 27-year-old pornstar and five others at Ilesa Correctional Centre before adjourning the matter until Sept.17.

Those remanded alongside King Tblak HOC are Ladiva Aije, 22, Juliet Semion, 24, Ahmed Olasunkanmi, 23, Adeniran Eritosin, 29, and Tunde Jimoh, 27.

Police Prosecutor, ASP Idoko John told the court that the defendants were caught in the nude or half-naked before they were apprehended by the security authority.

He told the court that the defendants conspired among themselves to carry out the act at the Osun-Osogbo traditional shrine, being a religious ground of worship

John said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 516,233,517, of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol ll, Laws of Osun ,2002

They were said to have commited the act on July 25 around 12.30pm.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Osun-Osogbo sacred grove, home to Osun, the Yoruba goddess of fertility, is a Unesco world heritage site in a forest on the outskirts of Osun state.

According to the police, King Tblak HOC had recorded a ‘sex movie’ in the site.

Footages from the video showed King Tblak HOC, a popular porn movie producer with a huge following, dressed in the white robe of adherents of the Osun deity.

The videos were posted on his website and social media accounts.

It is not clear how he entered the forest, which can be accessed from many routes.

A follower of the deity, Yemi Elebuibon, who is known as the Araba of Osogbo, said King Tblak HOC desecrated the grove, which was a sacred land where worshippers from Nigeria and elsewhere offer prayers and sacrifices to the Osun goddess.

“The traditional worshippers in charge of the grove will decide on what punishment to mete out to him after the police conclude its investigation,” Mr Elebuibon said.

Declared a World Heritage Site in 2005, Unesco describes the grove, as “one of the last remnants of primary high forest” in southern Nigeria and “as the abode of the goddess of fertility Osun, one of the pantheon of Yoruba gods”.

The Osun goddess, according to Yoruba mythology, was one of the many wives of Sango, a powerful deity in Yorubaland.

The Ghone Tv news anchor, Yazzi Sangari, lends her voice to the conversation on the necessity of spending huge amounts of money on wedding ceremonies.

Yazzi Sangari said she would rather spend her money on an expensive diamond ring or an expensive gold ring whose value will go up over time. 

During the conversation, Hiplife Grandpapa Reggie Rockstone and his wife Zilla Limann asserted to the belief that weddings are a waste of money. 

Conversing with the blogger, Zion Felix, the couple who people have tagged ”relationship goals”, and ”couple goals”, said  in their view, white weddings are unnecessary and a total waste of money and other resources. Then Yazzi Sangria added that she expects just her mother, her father, her husband and her in-laws at her wedding.

According to her, ”I am not spending my money for people to just chop and eat at my wedding. My wedding is me, my husband, my mother, my dad, and my in-laws and that’s it ”

She went on to say, ”personally, and this is just for me, the money I will spend on a wedding, I will spend it on a ring, because if the ring is made out of real diamonds, and real gold, it will actually appreciate, the value will go up”

Hiplife Grandpapa Reggie Rockstone and his wife Zilla Limann whose marriage people idolize say that marriage is a journey, and this journey should be fun and interesting and that there is no marriage without its own ups and downs. 

Zilla and Rockstone who have been together for over 20 years said they never had a marriage ceremony and that wedding is not a  necessary venture.

Zilla Limann added she does not believe in weddings, and that they did not even organize a big ceremony for their white wedding.

The on-air personality could not have agreed more with this couple, as she takes her stance in having a low key wedding.

Just a few days to this discussion, The Star FM 103.5 presenter had taken to Twitter to say she has never understood big weddings with tiny rings.

Yazzi Sangari seems to be taking the whole wedding and ring thing too personally, as she took to her Instagram page to confirm what she had already said on air, but this time, adding a twist to it. ”I never understood big weddings with little rings. It just does not make sense. A marriage is between two families, I don’t see the need for huge weddings. I would rather invest in a ring, our house or a college fund for our future kids”

The news anchor and presenter believes in securing the bag for the future, as opposed to spending it on a day’s celebration where people will just ”chop” and leave.
