Who Upset Oluchi Orlandi? Nigerian Supermodel Angrily Rants on Twitter




It’s no new phenomenon that when you get upset, Twitter is an easy outlet for you to vent your troubles and in some way, make meaning of “a problem half shared is half solved”. Nigerian supermodel and Africa’s New Top Model host, Oluchi Orlandi is no different and she seems to have taken it up to here. Read her recent Twitter rant below.





All of this venom begs the simple question – Who upset Oluchi? Could it have anything to do with “Africa’s Next Top Model”?

From her tweets, it seems that a certain someone wanted to get money to meet with Oluchi and the certain someone went a Naira too far.

      What is the obsession with nigerians and grammar? I don’t understand it!! Instead of worrying about grammar, I think we should worry about the fact that half of Nigerians can’t speak their own language anymore! Now that to me is ridiculous!!

      Titi God bless you for this comment! I don’t understand the obsession too… People should focus on more important things.

      You shall never lack anything good in life TITI, all your problems are over, i don’t understand why good Grammer bothers Africans, it’s not our freaking language for Christ sake, brits demselves make mistakes all the time, oly have you ever heard concentrated asians, Indians, Germans, Italians, french speak English or even write?!?! I bet then you would appreciate any African who can at least communicate to an extent and God bless you again Titi for pointing out our local languages going into extinction! It hurts me so much when I see all this new generation kids, especially the ones born and bred abroad not being able to understand anything in their supposed to be first language, having the knowledge of different languages is a blessing mehn, how I wish I have the opportunity..

      Thank you Titi – it’s not only Nigerians, it’s Africa as a
      whole. We think speaking good English is more important than being
      fluent in your mother tongue. When was the last time you heard
      oyibo being give you a standing ovation for speaking good English
      yet we crown them when they speak our mother tongues.

      Errrrrr, just a friendly reminder that English is our country’s official national language so you should know how to read and write properly. Until the official langauge is split into the local languages, you should brush up on your grammar.

    • Iris

      It’s the official language for reading and writing in Nigeria. It’s a language that helps you communicate internationally. You should be able to speak and write it correctly. In France, I’ll bet someone who had bad French grammar would be corrected. If this article about Oluchi is written in a Nigerian language and there is a grammatical error in it, it should be addressed. It is undoubtedly a shame that many Nigerians cannot speak Nigerian languages. However, if you are going to speak a language or write in it, strive to do it well. If you do not, you may be corrected. You take your correction and move on. And Slim just because other nationalities make mistakes, they should be our yardsticks? You don’t think that line of thinking in itself shows an inferiority complex?

      English is our first language love. What language did you school in? Ibo, Yoruba, Hausa, efik or English @above people claiming “English is not our first language”
      It’s people like you that cause foreigners to give a standing ovation whenever they hear good English coming from a Nigerian. I have to constantly remind people that “actually English is our official language in Nigeria and most of us were born speaking it.
      As for correct grammar on twitter, I believe twitter isn’t that serious. Same goes for blogs and social networks.

    • Tosin

      October 24, 2013 at 6:11 am

      Poor use of language bothers me. The fact that people can’t communicate in a single language. Those who shell in English, check, sometimes they don’t know Yoruba, no Igbo, no local language, no foreign language. So you ask what their education has been doing for them all their lives. Nowadays they’ll be sending texts wit gud gr8 u no wut i min. I bloody hate that. For the love of all that is beautiful, spell.

      November 1, 2013 at 12:24 am

      @ Titi, Help me ask them, ‘proly’ the fake Nigerians, some
      are those who has not even cross over that MMA in Lagos, yet they
      twist their tongues like they were from America, forgetting that
      Americans don’t even speak Grammar!!! I am one of those people who
      suggest, we make our ‘Broken English’ as our official language in
      Nigeria! with the likes of Jamaica where, they speak ‘Jamaican
      English’ but then the Nigerian Government and its people won’t buy
      that, instead, they prefer to call those who are real names an’all.
      No wonder we were being perceived by the western world, as people
      who cannot decide for themselves!!. being a learned is way far from
      speaking english…. and being able to speak fluent english does
      not prove you are learned!!! Another thing about naija peeps is
      that, they can be so judgmental, and most of their judgments are
      based on their internal emotion, that is, how they genuinely feel
      deep down about themselves, however, instead of them to channel the
      energy inside for self-reflexivity, they rather project their
      insecurities towards another human, fake-(ish) !!!
      Make-una-wake-up-in-dat-naija and stop using other countries’
      illiteracy as your trendy-learning!!


    October 23, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    Easy. I totally understand.

    Where is Oluchi’s PR team? I’m a big fan, but Africa is an entire continent…

    • Non professional opinion

      October 23, 2013 at 1:45 pm

      Agreed. Blanket statements like that from someone purporting to empower young women on the continent is very poor. She could have gotten her point across without sounding like a petulant baby who spat her dummy out.

    i guess it has something to do with Africa’s next top model? either way, she should take it easy. and i the mean time, perfect her written and spoken english.

    • nene

      October 23, 2013 at 3:01 pm

      however there is truth in what she’s saying. money is not evil, but greedy people are!

  11. Sexxie

    October 23, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    Oluchi is world class…she should be able to control herself in public no matter how upset she is. It’s called anger management.

  12. deb

    October 23, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    U guys take it easy. Who are you to decide how an individual should manage anger and if any1 takes to social media for any reason, she wants that reason to be made known and besides who cares and you people about written English or grammatical errors in written English, how does it affect ur lives, it’s not an essay to be submitted to the British Council language should still remain an art of word expression so far u can understand the context. I’m sure most of u had D7 in English language on your 1st GCE attempts #tongueout#

    it is so funny how Nigerians make fuse about English language.majority of Chinese,German,french and other citizens of the world speak their native dialect.its even bad that when you go on tourism you have to learn their local dialect to be able to communicate with them.Her grammar is poor as you claimed but even your perfect grammar cannot earn you her status and the fortunes that she commands

    I feel bad for her….I personally know most Nigerians (I don’t know about Africa o) in ‘high places’ are greedy!! choi!! I’m sure they are trying to chop her money like crazy with this her move back home.
    Mehn! My uncle told about how his friend that wanted to set up a free clinic funded by the UN was asked for bribes. Free clinic oh!! He said the minister was like “I don’t care if its free….you can’t tell me you’re not getting something from this deal…..and I want my cut”. He insisted until the poor guy gave up and just let the funds get used by another African country. Now that is pretty disgusting!! When you hear some stories you’ll feel Oluchi’s pain. And as for the grammar…I think most of the mistakes where based on the fact that she was venting and was typing a little too fast……eyin aye!!

      that valuable there culture and language, and kudos to the Ghanians
      no matter were they are or there age they speak there language with
      pride. But we Nigerians sorry i need to use this word we are
      (uncivilized people) we think we wearing nice cloth,makeup or know
      how to speak or write the best English in the World or listen to
      the latest music that does not show our culture make us civilized
      not at all we are way backward…My First trip to Nigeria was good
      but funniest thing people were expecting me to speak British accent
      or America accent but they were Suprise when they hear me speaking
      Yoruba and expressing my self well but all the same kudos to my
      parent they are true born AFRICAN that embrace there culture. we
      Nigeria let stop being a Slave and let us embrace our culture and

    This girl is just a fool…so because you marry Oyibo now, folks back home are now ‘Africans’? Shame a Nigerian should be propagating this sort of ignorance. Can’t she just said ‘These guys’ or even be specific? But would rather tar all Africans, feeding into stereotypes of racists around her. Nonsense, is Africa one country? How many Africans have she met? Village girl made into Face of Africa.

Pity for that country, most are demon gat to be for the devil and not God when money is their God! sheew, i’m pissed for Oluchi, may God give you the power to overcome the evil in that territory.
