Lami Phillips

In this article, we'd be seeing some facts you need to know about popular Nigerian entertainer, Lami Phillips and why she is being dragged into the trending Dowen College news.

Dowen College, Lagos has been on the news for the past few days for a not very good reason. The school has been the centre of controversial news involving a student Sylvester Oromoni (Jnr) who was allegedly beaten to death by fellow students following his refusal to join a cult group.

Following the development, the Lagos State Government ordered the indefinite closure of the school pending the outcome of an investigation into Oromoni's death.

Several social media users, including some celebrities, took to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to pen down their griefs while calling for a proper investigation to be carried out.

Among influential figures that aired their opinions was Nigerian music manager, Ubi Franklin who disclosed that one of his colleagues in the entertainment industry owned the school. He made the statement in a post shared on his official Twitter page while seeking justice for the late Sylvester.

According to him, some of his colleagues in the industry wouldn’t speak up because they are covering the owner.

He urged them to reveal the truth and seek justice for the 12-year-old.

His tweet read: “I know some of my colleagues or Abi some celebrities will not speak up about this “Dowen college matter because one of our colleague is the owner of the school. I have been watching your pages and I know she is very close to you, yes you.

Say something now, she might see our rage on your page.We are talking about a 12-year-old here, what if this boy were to be your son?

So who is the mystery entertainer?
According to the school's official website, Dowen College was established in the late 1990s. Online sources revealed that the school is owned by Chief Olumide Philips, father to Lami Phillips.

While the actress, songwriter and singer, has chosen to keep mute since Sylvester Oromoni’s death, we deem it necessary to explain to our followers who she is and why she is being dragged into the whole controversies.
