When asked about any regret as a footballer, legendary footballer Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha said;

“If I have any regret that would be not winning The African Footballer of the Year. But then, I don’t think I was meant to because I gave my best, but at the end, it wasn’t good enough. However, I had a fantastic playing career”

When asked why no other footballer has been able to fill the vacuum of the No.10 position he left behind, Okocha replied;

“I don’t want to sound arrogant but the truth it that there is something special about me. Sometimes, you have special players in a squad, when you lose them, it will take like five to ten years to get another set of such players. Not that the people trying to fill the vacuum are not good, they are great in their own way, but they are not just special. With time, Nigeria will get the special one that will fill the vacuum I left” He told Encomium

    Austin Jay Jay Okocha was not just good but magical; he touched the ball like no other player in the history of football in Nigeria. He will be difficult to replace. He can be likened to Lionel Messi and even the ball itself came alive and hopping for joy when Okocha touched it. I strongly believe that this was one African player that deserved the African Footballer of the year more than anyone else but still can’t understand why he did not win it. Someday in the future, I foresee that this footballer will get his due honour. Great guy!

Okocha is more than just a football player, he’s a genius on the football field, a spectacular footballer, graceful on the pitch… He deserves a whole lot of accolades.

      Okocha is a fool?
      I wonder what exactly is your contribution to Nigeria so far and what is your life’s achievement thus far to qualify you as his judge?

Celebrity barman, Cubana Chiefpriest has disclosed that the current situation in Nigeria can only get worst.

His comment follows the economic state of the country, coupled with corrupt activities of politicians in the country.

 

 

The self-acclaimed celebrity barman shared his thoughts about the ongoing nationwide looting on his Instagram page.

He expressed his concerns over the belief people have in a government who according to him, can not provide basic amenities for its citizens like good roads and proper health care.

Cubana also spoke about the rise in the price of a bag of rice in Nigeria which is ten times over the price for a bag of cement.

The summary of his post is a stirring of hopelessness and uncertainty over a government who allegedly refused to distribute palliatives to its citizens in a time of need. He also hammered on the fact that people should not expect much from a government who refused to give its citizens what is rightfully theirs.

Read the post below:

“So Funny How We Are Expecting Light, Good Roads, Health Care, Security, Education, Development, Empowerment Etc From People That Refused To Give Us Common Noodles To Eat. As Of Today Cement Na 4,000 Rice Na 38,000 We Are Finished, Sometimes I Wonder If God Dey For Real Because How Can God Comfortably Watch These Oppressors Oppress Us. This Country Na Wah !!!! To Me It Can Only Get Worse.”

Yahoo-Yahoo Responsible For Low Rate Of Cultism: Seyi Awolowo

Seyi Awolowo, former Big Brother Naija housemate has opined that the rate of cultism in Nigeria has reduced, adding that youths are now more focused on making money.

Awolowo, who disclosed this in an exclusive interview with GoldMyneTV, stated that youths engaging in online scam are influenced by politicians who indulge in the looting of public funds.

 

During an interview with GoldMyneTV, Seyi was asked if the youths engaging in cyber-crime are influenced by politicians who indulge in the looting of public funds.

Read his words below;

”This thing is long and deep. I don’t stand for the yahoo-yahoo thing. But do you know that yahoo is the reason we don’t have really high amount of cultism?

And this is just my perspective ‘cause when I was in university, I was always harassed by cultists. But then the next thing, there was a flow of yahoo and they all just disappeared.

People that used to slap and want to obtain would now rather give. It is something bad, so overtime we abused it.

Leaders who are supposed to make us see bad in it are doing worse things, stealing more money, and getting away with it. So yahoo boys are like, ‘if he can steal and get away, why can’t I? And I’m not even stealing from Nigeria’.”
