      Ain’t nobody hating on him. Why do people think calling someone out is hating. This still doesn’t take away from being more responsible. Congrats to him.

    Why is it that when people succeed in Nigeria people attribute it to the grace of God or the favour of God. Are we trying to say all these billionaires and millionaires are ordained by God even those who are atheists or not even Christian. We don’t no where Wizkids success comes from and not every successful person is ordained by God so leave God out of this. Congratuulate the man and leave it at that.

      @ oga Chinedu.. Because we believe if God didn’t want it so, it wont happen, abi is the earth not the Lord’s and the fullness thereof or is everything good not from above again? and please note no be only Christians get God abeg, na God make everyone so we all have a right to him…That’s such a narrow minded view to take and its bad for lateral thinking.

    @ Opelolu,If you know the meaning of that name,you won’t be faking yourself under it,passing negative comment,the message in that name means been grateful to God,and what better song of appreciation and gratitude than ni Ojuelegba.?who God bless no one can curse.

    @Chinedu,we are a religious country with no apologies,the good book makes us to know that winners are not necessarily the strongest,fittest or the smartest,but only the ones that God favours,what a better story than a boy from Our own Ojuelegba been recognized all over the world,my brother take it or leave it,na Godwin.
