• Despite criticisms, The Capital got it right with its exclusive report on the marriage

The lies of a coward are never gratuitous, at least to the cowardly; they often compensate for the inadequacies of his or her life. However, lies told by a coward sometimes, are simply fashioned to inflict hurt or unprecedented pain in the cockles of the valiant’s heart. What the latter does in the wake of such attack determines his or her place in the columns of humanity’s best or worst.
Picture the coward as John Shitu and the valorous, as The Capital, and you just might understand the tragic depths of John ‘s embarrassment at the moment.
Interestingly, however, several media predictions have overtime served as nothing but material for idle gossip or small talk at tea parties and tattle-fests; seldom does a medium prove itself to be an exception to the norm. But The Capital is remarkably different. It is never the publication’s intention to be haughty neither is it desperate to arrogate to itself any gift of clairvoyance but it need be said that The Capital online and its print edition epitomize the essence of a fast-fading culture and high art of journalism practice.
Driven by a passion to elevate news reporting and celebrity journalism practice, The Capital had at various instances undertaken tasking and often challenging roles in getting the news and incontestable truth out there for its teeming readership. And just recently, the medium, in its true spirit and high culture of journalism practice, reported that John Shittu, the popular Mikel Obi’s manager was set to marry 51 year old woman, Vivian Chiologhi in London.
No sooner did The Capital publish the report than John, whose claim to fame was being Mikel Obi’s manager, attacked the medium claiming the report was a sham. He spat into the air and received it with measured cadence. Now that news of their marriage has gone viral in both traditional and new media, The Capital has been vindicated.
The medium hereby re-emphasizes its commitment to professionalism and journalism’s best practices in its discharge of its socially responsible role as watchdog of the society.
Yes, Vivian Chiologi who owns the popular salon, Pride & Joy in Lekki, Lagos got married to NFF licensed football agent, John Shittu at the Dorchester Hotel in London. John, a widower who lost his first wife 6 years ago was all smiles at the wedding. The football agent’s first wife, Ibironke Alake Shittu died in 2010, following a brief illness in London.
