This week, we saw several of our faves winning. Even when they lost, like in the case of the Super Falcons, they still won (the Super Falcons qualified). MC Oluomo met the governor of Georgia and Rihanna went day drinking.
All in all, it was a quiet week, and no one was up to much trouble. Here’s what went down.
Nigerians Were Not Happy with World Cup Commentator
Because we like to be consistent, we’ll use the proper word: Nigerians harassed Jenny Taft, the commentator who oversaw the Nigeria Vs. France Women’s World Cup match.
It looked like Nigeria was going to get away with a draw, the women defending bravely. But that was until the 79th minute, when France was awarded a penalty. (VAR did ojoro. Yes, we said it.)
After our young and brave goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie saved the penalty, the referee showed her a yellow card, saying she flouted some bogus rule (can you tell we’re pained?). Anyway, what people found the most upsetting was what the commentator was saying. And because they could not do anything about the results of the game, they decided to take out their frustrations on her:
You messed with the wrong set of people! We won’t let you off easily!
I don’t blame you sha! You can’t do any better. When God requested for heads to insert brains you submitted your trailer park called mouth/teeth. If broken into pieces it will roof a bungalow! Oloriburuku omo!

Terrible commentary. Very unprofessional. Highly disappointing. Too biased. I can’t believe this would happen in this age. You need to be sanctioned.

She said a lot, in 90 mins of commentary, she was biased against Nigeria, condescending, and didn’t want to keep quiet about our keeper being 18 like it was a disability. While constantly praising the French like she’s their head of PR

France didn’t deserve that win
The player of the match didn’t deserve that title
You lot do not deserve we Africans
But then again it’s not your fault.. Its totally of fault for coming to play your World Cup… And I know we with our two left legs we’ll still come next time?

Sis needs a Yoruba man to reset her brain.
Very unprofessional commentary, i didn’t watch the match but the videos online clearly shows you were bias. We expected more from you, i hope the relevant authorities investigate and sanction you if found guilty.
No to Racism!!!#NGAFRA

You sure were way too excited to talk down on Nigeria every chance you got! Hope you got the love you were craving so bad from the French!

Our Celebs Going #EkoForShow
It was the premiere of The Bling Lagosians this past weekend, and the theme was #EkoForShow. While so many of our celebs looked flawless (see Cee C, Alexx Ekubo & Anto), a few others just looked gbef, with one person in particular reminding us of a Mortal Kombat character.
Here’s what the people had to say:

Runtown be Taking a Stand!
Singer Runtown has been quite active on Twitter, and he’s letting everyone know where he stands on issues regarding politics and what’s going on in the country.
From the Maiduguri killings to the Sudan massacre, and even the ban of Sniper, Runtown has continued to wade in.

There was a triple suicide bomb attack in Maiduguri just two days ago that took the lives of up to 30 people?
Reading about it and realized that it was covered by mostly western publications. Are these reports true? Why are Nigerian publications not reporting it? I am confused. pic.twitter.com/lOJhIZAB7s
— Runtown (@iRuntown) June 18, 2019
Banning Sniper only tackles HOW people commit suicide not WHY people commit suicide.
It’s like going to dry up the Lagos Lagoon because people use it as a tool for committing suicide. To truly curb this epidemic, we must focus on the reason WHY people do it. https://t.co/kviyS5fNEy

MC Oluomo meeting American Governor
Hard work pays, kids. If you work hard enough, instil fear in enough hearts, maybe you too will one day, like MC Oluomo, meet an American Governor.
Let’s see what the people have to say:
MC Oluomo and family with Governor of Atlanta Georgia.
If this is what thuggery would give a man, then how do you want to convince our youths to be responsible? ?
— AyeMojuba ??? (@ayemojubar) June 18, 2019
MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology is about to accept MC Oluomo son. Wow.
MIT is the best and the first institute when it comes to technology, discoveries and science. So MC Oluomo has such fantastic plan for his own son while using other to intimidate #Nigeria. ? pic.twitter.com/SaDCJkiylT
— AyeMojuba ??? (@ayemojubar) June 18, 2019
Me: I’m dropping out of school because I’m tired.
Dad: You’re very stupid. Funke, see the rubbish your son is saying.
Mum: Tobi, what are you saying? Do you want to end up on the street like a common thug?
Me remembering MC Oluomo is chilling with the Gorvernor of Georgia: pic.twitter.com/k0gX6xvL47

“You promised to make me proud and you did” – MC Oluomo’s wife praises son after having best GPA at his school.
I wish all the agbero, NURTW members and thugs in Oshodi see this.
— AyeMojuba ??? (@ayemojubar) June 20, 2019
Some of u can’t get over your elitism. NURTW is a professional association like any other, if an officer of the Nigerian Bar or Medical Association was invited by the GA Gov, you’ll be fine, but because MC Oluomo is in a blue-collar industry union, you have issues.
— Mr. Aye Dee (@MrAyeDee) June 18, 2019
Omo, what MC Oluomo has done for his kids is the best thing he could ever have done o. Took them out of Nigeria to be successful in the USA. One of his sons is going to start school in MIT mehnn. What????????????

— Ride With GidiCab (@Gidi_Traffic) June 18, 2019
The more reason ‘other peoples children and parent’ should ask themselves the critical question, how come MC Oluomo’s children are not in Oshodi, the same question people should ask politicians when they inspire them to violence and attacks on each other.
— Kayode Ogundamisi (@ogundamisi) June 18, 2019
MC Oluomo the General in NURTW Is giving his children the best education outside the country. Whilst he’s being paid heavily as a tool to deprive people in Lagos of the best.
It’s a shame the blind political followers in Nigeria are yet to wake up from their slumber?

Sanwo-Olu Changed Mouth
Of course, no one is surprised.
Anyway, thank God for video oo. In one of the gubernatorial debates in the rup-up to the elections, Sanwo-Olu had promised to tackle the Apapa traffic within the first 100 days.
Even after he was elected, while speaking during an interactive session with his classmates at the Executive Master of Business Administration class, University of Lagos, 1998/2000 set, he said he’d clear the gridlock within 60 days.
Now? Our governor has said he didn’t promise to clear the traffic. He said he promised to “review” it.
eL Oh eL…
Speaking to State House correspondents in Abuja, he said:
They said that I mentioned during the campaign train that I was going to clear it in 60 days. […] What I said was that in 60 days we would review what was done but that does not take the fact that even if people give you dateline, it’s because they want you to do well and they want you to be able to be accountable for those datelines.
Let’s just thank God for life.
19/5/2019: I’ll end Apapa gridlock within my first 60 days in office – Sanwo-Olu
18/6/2019: I never promised to fix Apapa gridlock in 60 days – Sanwo-Olu pic.twitter.com/UfUU9Eytt1
— HEADmaster (@Mr_Hardey) June 18, 2019
This was Sanwo-Olu on national TV, posturing and grandstanding about solving the Apapa gridlock challenge. It is an insult of elephantine proportions, to the collective sensibilities of Lagosians, that he’d so shamelessly deny his own utterances.
— Charles the 1st (@9jaBloke) June 20, 2019
I don’t know whether it is Punch that is lying or its Sanwo-Olu that has a change of mind ? on Apapa gridlock fix?
— AyeMojuba ??? (@ayemojubar) June 19, 2019
Sanwo-Olu saying he didnt make any Apapa promise reminds me of a man who “toasts” a woman telling her he will buy her a big car after she sleeps with him
She is wowed by this prospect and decides to sleep with him
He ejaculates and loses all memory of his promise to buy a car
— the Morris Monye factor (@monye_morris) June 19, 2019
Sanwo-Olu had said,”I’m going to take it very seriously. I believe that it is something that we are going to solve in the first 60 days of our government. Whatever is going to be required of us, we will take them out” OGA SANWO-OLU HOW WE GO TRUST U NOW?
— Seun Anikulapo Kuti (@RealSeunKuti) June 18, 2019
On May 18, Sanwo-Olu said, “The Apapa trailer issue; it’s a campaign issue, it’s very serious. I’m going to take it very seriously. I believe that it is something that we are going to solve in the first 60 days of our government”.
Today the Governor claimed he never said that. pic.twitter.com/tHW7ikx3es
