Chidinma Okeke is facing more fallout from her sex tape scandal with the Miss Anambra 2015 losing her crown after the explicit video reportedly hit the internet.
The scandalous video appeared to show Chidinma and her personal assistant, a fellow beauty queen identified as Ada, engaged in a sex act. The video caused an immediate scandal across Nigeria, with calls for her to step down from her pageant post, and now there appears to be more fallout.
News 24 Nigeria reported this week that the sex tape leak caused Chidinma Okeke to lose her pageant crown, on top of being forced to pay a large sum of money in a futile attempt to keep it from being released.
“The leakers of the videos are now claiming Chidinma Okeke has been dethroned due to the sex-tape scandal,” the report noted. “They also claim that Chidinma has been paying a blackmailer huge amount of money just to cover up her tracks and not release the sex video.”
The video released late last week showed the Nigerian pageant winner in an explicit scene with another woman, who at first was not identified. As 360 Nobs noted, Chidinma Okeke was allegedly seen in a solo sex act before the other woman joined her.
Okeke spoke out immediately after the video began spreading on social media, saying that the video was actually another person and blaming what appeared to be her appearance on trick photography.
“My attention has been drawn to a concocted photograph/ video being circulated in the social media wherein my face was superimposed on an existing picture of persons engaging amorous conduct through the art of photo shopping,” she said. “This act is perpetrated by hoodlums who are out to blackmail me or tarnish my image and promising career by presenting me in bad light.”
Okeke added that she would not have filmed such a video as she is a “highly responsible person who was brought up in a family with impeccable reputation.”
“I can therefore not subscribe to such act how much more engage in same,” she added.
The story of Chidinma Okeke’s alleged sex tape has parallels to another saga from the United States. Nearly one month ago, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton brought up former Miss Universe Alicia Machado during a debate, chiding Republican Donald Trump for his past treatment of her. Clinton pointed out that Trump, who owned the Miss Universe pageant at the time, mocked Machado after she gained weight and publicly humiliated the pageant winner.
Trump responded a few days later by accusing Alicia Machado of appearing in a sex tape, and in a Twitter rant, he told voters to check it out for themselves.
“Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?” he wrote.
Hillary and her team planned months in advance the Alicia Machado attack. Entire thing was planned and planted. https://t.co/Yg064Go2dA— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) October 24, 2016
But there was a problem with Trump’s accusation as Alicia Machado never actually appeared in a sex tape. There were a handful of explicit videos floating around that claimed to show Machado, but the tapes actually showed a different woman. Politico noted, “The Daily Beast and other outlets that investigated the claim found no evidence that she has starred in any pornographic films and that the clips posted online actually feature another woman.” The rumor-busting site, Snopes, also analyzed the pictures of the woman in the sex tape, and they pointed pointing out that it was not Alicia Machado.
So Trump is lying https://t.co/qI3EWMAEUB go ahead. Clutch your pearls.— aliceinthewater (@aliceinthewater) September 30, 2016
Chidinma Okeke could have an aggressive response to her sex tape scandal. The Miss Anambra 2015 winner said she is consulting with a lawyer and could press charges against the person responsible for leaking the video to the internet.
