My beauty complex and my house were directly opposite Bethlehem girls college and the explosion happened right in front of the school. Everything went down. I thank God for life. Still in shock to even talk but my anger is that the media houses and the government are lying to the public. All the same. It is well. I will narrate on this more when am out of shock. For now my hands are still shaking. God just showed me how special I am. How he loves my family, yes I lost 2 houses, 2 cars, all properties, cloths, shoes, AngelNikky Cosmetics goods worth close to 10m. My beauty complex and everything inside worth close to 50m and of course my resident mansion and properties inside which only myself and whoever have been to my house can tell how beautiful it was. Should we talk about my closet? If you know AngelNikky you can imagine AngelNikky’s closet. Fire took it. All it’s well is what I can say because I have my life, my husband, my children, my PA, my husband’s boys, we are all alive. By the grace of God, material things can be replaced. No one can replace life. Gratitude to God remains my attitude.
The actor, who shared the videos of the mansion before it was razed, said: “What’s left of my beautiful house. If you haven’t been to my house you might not really understand this. But again I thank God we were in the church.
My boy and my PA miraculously escaped through the back fence that fell down though the boy got injured but he is getting better.”

Falz Reacts As Sanwo-olu Solicits Funds For Victims Of Explosion
Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Monday set up a N2 billion Emergency Relief Fund to assist victims of Sunday’s explosion at Abule Ado area of the state.
Sanwo-Olu announced the establishment of the “Abule Ado Emergency Relief Fund” after visiting the scene of the explosion.
Award-winning rapper Folarin Falana better known as Falz has mocked Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu who solicited funds for residents affected in the explosion that rocked Abule Ado area of the state on Sunday.
DD reports that Sanwo-Olu had set up a N2 billion Emergency Relief Fund to assist victims after visiting the scene of the explosion.
“It is a N2 billion relief fund, and the state government will immediately be putting N250 million in that fund,” the governor said.
“This is certainly beyond what the state government can undertake on its own. This is beyond what the government, be it at the national or state, can undertake on its own.
“So, what this fund would do is to give everybody the opportunity to be part of it and to be able to donate into it.”
In a tweet where the governor also shared account details, Falz responded by asking if Sanwo-olu was actually joking with the decision.
“What kind of joke is this? Who are you asking to donate ?” Falz tweeted.
