Oga Sanwo Changed Mouth, MC Oluomo Met the Governor of Georgia, TwitterNG Descended on Jenny Taft – Here’s What Went Down this Week

BellaNaija Features



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:

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:


It’s six months into the year already, and South Africans are reviewing how it’s been so far for them. It’s hilarious.

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.

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:

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.

This Rihanna & Seth Meyers Interview

Without a doubt this is the funniest interview you’ll find of a celebrity. No other words needed. Here you go:

And that’s all for this week! Let us know in the comment section if we missed anything. Have a great weekend!
