Rundown Of The Happenings During The Week
It has been a week of strange happenings. With some “breaking boundaries” in the metaphysical realms and on earth and historic features, the world learned this week that anything is possible.
“Football, the antichrist”
A woman known as Evangelist A.F Funmilayo has taken Nigerians by surprise after revealing in her book, The Game Of The Anti-Christ (Exposing The Secret Behind Football), that football is the antichrist tool used by the devil for his world agenda. The evangelist brought to the public’s attention by a tweep, @alexlobaloba, writes that Some players and coaches are also involved in sorcery or occultism. Interestingly, the lady takes after the biblical Methuselah (having served the devil for 990 years) and describes herself as a gifted writer. Perhaps, she has the agenda of all the “village people” distorting Nigeria’s progress.

However, what is news is that Nigerian Afro-pop superstar, David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, will be making an appearance in the upcoming sequel, “Coming To America 2”. This information was made known by Ghanaian/Liberian actor and comedian, Michael Blackson on his twitter page.

Queen of Clapbacks
Cardi B has received backlash for a lot of things, this time, it is for her being “fatphobic.” The Bodak Queen got into trouble with the public after she advised a troll who attacked her on Instagram to focus on her priorities, which is her diet, instead of her. The troll had not only called her names but also bashed her songwriting skills. This received negative remarks from the public as people accused her of body shaming. Refusing to let these accusations pass by, she took her time to explain why she clapped back.
