A Quick Rundown Of All Exciting Happenings This Week
Wow! That’s all we can use to describe how this week went. With a lot of motivation that will cause many to rethink their financial decisions to proffering of solutions to make the world a better place, here is a rundown of the week:
A solution to Lagos traffic?
Now we all know how Lagos traffic is. You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner without moving an inch (well, excuse our exaggeration!). Now, it seems veteran comedian, Alibaba, has the solution to the never-ending traffic. Just when the entertainer who had spent three hours in traffic thought he had successfully decongested the gridlock, motorists went back to the initial form. To restore sanity, he suggested that Governor Jide Sanwoolu “should set up a system that will link drivers and their vehicles…so that when they break a law, there would be a deduction from their bank account.”
Death 0- 1 Life
Nigerian actor, Yul Edochie, is grateful to God for life. In a recent Instagram post, the former gubernatorial aspirant says he was on his way to the East from Lagos when his car had an accident along Ore- Benin expressway but did not sustain life-threatening injuries. He says he was doing 100-120 km when his car veered off the road, tumbled and ended up in the gutter. He ended his quote with a message, “Life can end in a second. The money, the cars, the mansions, the fame, the good life, all vanity. Be close to God.”
The Simpsons and Anthony Joshua
If you are a 90s’ child, or a millennial, famed cartoon The Simpsons is not a strange name. The Simpsons are notoriously known for having accurate predictions so that people now watch every episode with keen interest to know what the future holds in certain world events. In a picture now trending on Twitter among the show’s fans, a white boxer defeats his black opponent. Many have since described the white boxer as Andy Ruiz Jr. and the black man as Anthony Joshua who was recently stripped of his title in a historic win. Coincidence maybe?
Say their names!
Sean Carter, popularly known as Jay Z, and Rihanna Fenty, also known as Rihanna, have made history and made the black race proud with their recent statuses. Both international artistes, Jay Z has become the first black Hip-hop billionaire in history with a fortune of $1 billion (N306 billion) and it is all thanks to investments in Uber, a Champagne brand, Roc Nation, music, and artworks. Likewise, most of Rihanna’s $600 million wealth (N184 billion) comes from her trademark company, Fenty. Even more remarkable is, all she said she will achieve in her first interview, she has. We Stan!
High Heels Win
Just after a petition tagged #KuToo asking for a ban on heels to the workplace was filed, Japan’s health and labour minister has said that it is “necessary and appropriate.” “It is socially accepted as something that falls with the realm of being occupationally necessary and appropriate,” Nemoto told a legislative committee on Wednesday. #KuToo launched by actress and freelance writer Yumi Ishikawa makes a reference to the global #MeToo movement against sexual abuse. Some campaigners describe high heels as akin to modern foot-binding while others have urged a broader loosening of dress codes in the Japanese workplace.
