Criticise Buhari Again And Be Crucified – Islamic Cleric Dares Kukah

A Sokoto-based Islamic cleric, Abubakar Malami, has warned the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, to desist from challenging the Nigerian government or risk being crucified. This development comes amidst the severe criticisms surrounding the bishop's Christmas message and subsequent statements he has made. In a video sent to SaharaReporters, Malami, during a sermon, said if Kukah continues challenging the government, the bishop will be crucified and there will be no one to stop it. "Not even the government will be able to stop us," he said, towards the end of the video. The cleric, who spoke in Hausa, said, "Matthew Hassan Kukah is already cursed by Allah. Therefore, if Kukah challenges the government, he will be crucified. We will not listen to anybod...

Modric Reveals how Mourinho Almost Made Cristiano Ronaldo Cry

Real Madrid ace, Luka Modric has revealed how Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, almost made Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo cry during their time together at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The pair played under Mourinho at the Los Blancos, before Ronaldo left the La Liga giants in 2018 for Juventus. “I was surprised by Mourinho’s reaction. We were winning 2-0 in the Copa del Rey,” Modric wrote in his biography ‘My Game’. “Ronaldo did not chase the rivals on his throw-in, and Jose was furious with Cristiano. “The two fought for a long time on the field.

How Oby Ezekwesili Was Used And Dumped – Reno Omokri

Do not be fooled. Oby Ezekwesili, for all her religious pretensions, is a self-righteous hypocrite. I know this because I have incontrovertible proof that lays her hypocrisy bare. Oby is a woman that loves to criticise others, but cannot stand to be criticised. While I was one of President Jonathan’s spokesmen, I watched her criticise my boss using polite and impolite language. Then one day, I saw her respond to criticism by another person against her, and all hell broke lose. She attacked me like a mother hen whose chickens were under threat and promised to report me to my boss. You can imagine! Reporting me to the very same authority she had been undermining. How rich! Typical Oby. And then I wrote a parable tweet directed at someone who is now serving in Buhari’s government...

Romelu Lukaku & Chris Smalling criticise ‘Black Friday’ headline

Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku says the 'Black Friday' headline used by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport is "one of the dumbest" he has seen, while Roma's Chris Smalling condemned it as "wrong and insensitive". The headline accompanied pictures of Lukaku and Smalling prior to Friday's match between their two sides. "You guys keep fuelling the negativity and the racism issue," Lukaku said. Smalling urged the newspaper's editors to "understand the power they possess". Roma, along with Inter's rivals AC Milan, announced later on Thursday they will not work with Corriere dello Sport until January. A joint statement released at the same time by Roma and AC Milan said: "We have decided to ban Corriere dello Sport from our training facilities for the rest of the year and...

Chelsea’s Frank Lampard criticises Didier Deschamps over N’Golo Kante injury

Frank Lampard has said that France's handling of N'Golo Kante's groin injury during the international break was "not a laughing matter." Kante suffered an injury while warming up ahead of France's Euro 2020 qualifier against Iceland last Friday, a game his nation went on to win 1-0, and the midfielder then sat on the bench during France's 1-1 draw with Turkey on Monday. The injury has ruled the 28-year-old out of his club's Premier League match against Newcastle this Saturday. France manager Didier Deschamps said earlier this month: "Frank rang to ask me not to pick N'Golo for last month's matches. Fine, but sometimes it should go the other way too ... I have two important matches coming up, maybe I should ask him to play Olivier [Giroud] more!" But Chelsea boss Lampard said on Fr...

Singer Eazzy Says “Female Artistes Must Dress Half-naked on Stage”

Singer Eazzy tells female artistes that they must dress half naked like their female international counterparts such as Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez. The Ghanaian artiste gives the advice to female artistes in Ghana asking that they perform in the same manner as Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez who mostly mount the stage half naked, showing off their cleavages and wearing skimpy outfits. Eazzy claims those outfits make them comfortable while performing on stage for fans, even though they may be regarded as indecent. She also believes the music industry will be better if artistes are supported and not being insulted due to their indecent dressing. She said: “Mzbel was also very enlightened and ahead of our time. I watched her outfits when I was growing up and it was nice because I...

I’ve Been Warned by Northern PDP Leader Not to Criticise Buhari Again

Femi Fani-Kayode, FFK, a former Minister of aviation, has revealed that he has been warned by a prominent PDP Northern leader not to attack President Buhari again. According to FFK, the Northern leader stated that only Northerners should be allowed to criticize Buhari so as not to upset the North. Without mentioning the Northern leader’s name, Femi Fani-Kayode tweeted: “A prominent PDP leader from the NC told me that southerners should not attack or criticise Buhari. “He said only northerners should attack Buhari so as not to upset the north.

Man Utd: Paris St-Germain Star, Neymar Criticises Penalty Decision

The decision to award Manchester United a penalty in the 94th minute of their win over Paris St-Germain in the Champions League was a "disgrace", says the French club's forward Neymar. The 27-year-old raged about the call, made after using VAR, on social media as United reached the quarter-finals. Marcus Rashford's goal earned a 3-1 win and United went through on away goals after the tie ended 3-3 on aggregate. But Brazilian striker Neymar said the penalty "doesn't exist". He added: "It's a disgrace. Four guys who know nothing about football watch a slow-motion replay in front of the television. "What can [Kimpembe] do with his hand while his back is turned?" asked the former Barcelona player, who missed both legs through injury. The penalty was awarded after referee Dami...

Laurent Koscielny Retires, Criticises Deschamps

France and Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has retired from international duty after criticising manager Didier Deschamps for his treatment while recovering from injury. The defender ruptured an Achilles in the Europa League semi-final in May and missed out on France's World Cup-winning campaign in Russia. Koscielny, 33, said "lots of people disappointed him" during his lay-off. "It feels like a hit on the back of the head," he said. "When you are in good form, you have lots of friends. When you are injured... after a certain period of time, you are forgotten about. "He [Deschamps] called me once for my birthday in September. Otherwise, no. Lots of people disappointed me. Not only the coach." Koscielny announced last year that he intended to retire from international f...

Journalists, CSOs Criticise Saraki’s Court Order Freezing Sahara Reporters’ Bank Accounts

An order of a Kwara State High Court which blocked bank accounts linked to an online media platform, Sahara Reporters, about four months ago has been criticised by a coalition of media and Civil Society Organisations, CSOs. The group, Coalition for Press Freedom and Whistleblower Protection (CPFWP) made their position known in a joint statement signed by 15 of its members on Wednesday. It further condemned delays in the judicial process to reverse the order. The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, instituted the case in Ilorin, where he ruled for eight years as governor, accusing Sahara Reporters of publishing defamatory content against his personality. The four stories at issue, which included news and opinion contents, were published between September and December 2015, court filings pu...

Ever since her stellar performance in the movie, ‘Arugba,’ directed by legendary film maker, Tunde Kilani, ten years ago, actress Bukky Awoyemi, popularly known as Bukky Arugba, remained Nigerians’ sweetheart on the silver screen until 2014 when she encountered her first scandal as an actress. It was reported that Bukky snatched her actor husband, Damola Olatunji, from another woman. But in an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, the mother of twins said that it was the most challenging time of her life. “People do not know the true story of an event but they just conclude and pass judgment.

Your Vagina Should Smell And If Your Man Doesn’t Like It, Dump Him – Gynecologist Jen Gunter

A doctor has urged other women to break up with any partners who criticise their vaginas - after sharing her own personal experience. Dr Jen Gunter spoke out after commenting on recent reports that women have been using Vicks VapoRub to cleanse their vaginas. Writing on her blog, the Canadian gynaecologist slammed the ridiculous trend before revealing that she had previously broken up with a man who had criticised her privates. She said: "For what I am sure is the 100th time the vagina needs no cleaning and the vulva needs very little. I know the array of useless feminine washes and wipes at the drugstore and the drivel spouted by Gwyneth Paltrow via GOOP imply otherwise, but I’m the actual expert."

BBC Comedy Sketch – “The Real Housewives of ISIS” – Causes Stir on Social Media

A BBC comedy sketch is raising sparks online for being “insensitive” and “in bad taste”. Termed, The Real Housewives of ISIS, the show depicts brides of terrorists taking selfies and showing off suicide belts. While some find it to be great humour, others say it is insensitive and criticises Islam. Ursula Lindo wrote on Facebook: “I’m mortified that the BBC had produced such a programme. This is simply bad taste. The fact it is a comedy makes it even more worrying that humour should be associated with the actions of ISIS. Is this really what TV licenses are funding!?” “The humor is only funny if you look down on someone else and enjoy seeing them unhappy because they are not white and Christian,” another Facebook user said. “This is fantastic…….people bang on about political...

D’banj Slams Fan Who Criticised Him For Singing About Love & Sex

The singer had a short street Q&A with fans in London. From the video shared by Afropop Culture TV, the ‘Confidential’ crooner had a heated session with a fan who has reservations about the kind of music recent Nigerian artistes are making. “Nigerians musicians are doing us proud. We are only listening Nigerian music, I can assure you that,” the fan began, adding that he is worried about the lyrics which speak a lot about “love” and objectify women. “We need a prophecy in our music,” the fan continued. “What do you say about that.” And the singer slammed him with a terse: “I think you need to get a prophet!”
