A Nigerian lady, Omarose Manigault who worked as communication aide to United States President, Donald Trump before resigning few months ago is currently in war with the U.S President in a way no one has ever imagined.
The bold, brave, smart and articulate Omarosa is the kind of woman that can make the strongest man bow. Indeed, she is the kind of woman the Yoruba people often describe as Obirin bi Okunrin, meaning a woman like a man.
In the past 3 weeks, Omarosa has seized the U.S media for herself, serving them with content from the highest level. Like never before, she is dealing with Donald Trump to the amazement of the American media.
For the first time ever, Donald Trump is up against someone with the moral stamina and the required skills to serve him in his own coin and if you care to know, the beautiful lady is a Nigerian showing the typical can do Nigerian spirit.
“My full name is Omorosaonee; it’s a Yoruba name that means, ‘my beautiful child desired.’ My father’s family is Nigerian, my mother is American.”
That’s what Omarosa said In a 2010 interview with Vibe, an American online publication with heavy focus on music artists and before anyone says no, Omarosa drew attention to her facial look to prove she’s a Nigerian. TheCable added.
“I do recognize where I’m from and my lineage,” she said. “I mean you look at my cheekbones, you look at my fierce fighting spirit and attitude—you know exactly where I’m from.”
According to the Cable, Omarosa has done everything to create attention around her Nigerian descent, including taking business to the country.
“I went to Nigeria three years ago and did a whole press tour there for about three weeks and helped to launch an Apprentice Africa. It was pretty exciting,” she told Vibe.
The Apprentice Africa referenced by Omarosa was premiered in Nigeria in February 2008. The show that was an adaptation of the original American Reality TV format, The Apprentice, which launched Omarosa to fame, was hosted by Biodun Shobanjo, an advertising guru who has his hands in the famed Insight Communications and Troyka Group.
The show was aired in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania with 18 contestants from six African countries: Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya, Cameroon and Guinea.
In an undated interview with Kam Williams, published by the US blacknews.com, Omarosa explained the story behind her name when by the reporter asked her to talk about “who’s at the top of your hero list?” “My mother, Mommarosa,” she said. And in response to “what type of names are Omarosa, Mommarosa and Manigault,” with a guess from the reporter as “Haitian”, she said: “No, Nigerian names.”
Early April, Omarosa posted photos of Nigerian dress and headgear (gele) from her blush wedding to John Allen Newman, a Florida pastor.
The wedding took place at Trump International Hotel in D.C, but she took her photo-shoot to the White House, “catching fellow senior aides and some security officials in her bridal attire,” according to an editorial by the America’s politico.com.
Omarosa thanked her Nigerian stylist, Hakeem Oluwasegun Olaleye a.k.a Segungele in a message on her twitter: @OMAROSA. “Special thanks @Segungele for our amazing wedding Gele!#Naija #HappilyEverNewman,” she wrote.
That post on April 9, turned to a debate. Is she a Nigerian? One of her followers asked, but another twitter handle, MDPhDforTrump @venevite1 whom TheCable believes has clear association with Omarosa promptly responded, “Her father is a Nigerian.”
Omarosa, is an American reality television show participant, writer, and former political aide to President Donald Trump. She became widely known as a contestant on the first season of NBC’s reality television series The Apprentice.
After becoming assistant to the President and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison during the Trump administration in January of 2017, she resigned the White House on 13 December 2017.
In August 2018, she released a book, ‘’Unhinged’’, detailing her tenure at the White House and criticizing Trump and his administration. Two days before the book was released, she released the first of as many as 200 secret tapes she recorded during her White House tenure. As of 28 August 2018, she has released four tapes. The first tape she released, which was secretly recorded inside the Situation Room, was described as “one of the worst White House security breaches ever, though the tape is thought not to violate the Espionage Act.
When Omarosa was asked why she was recording the President and others, she said, everybody lies in the white house. This minute, you are told this and the next moment, you are told another thing. So, without any evidence to prove your case, you will be a victim. So, she recorded to everything to keep record as evidence.
On December 13, 2017, the White House announced the resignation of Omarosa, effective January 20, 2018. Omarosa wrote a book deeply critical of Trump titled Unhinged, which went on sale on August 14, 2018, in which she labels Trump a “racist”, and states that witnesses have confirmed the existence of tapes of Trump repeatedly using the “n-word” (“nigger”) during the filming of The Apprentice.
Till this day, hardly does any day pass by without any major news about Omarosa’s book ’Unhinged’ and the many controversial tapes she releases.
