4 days ago 67

Hi guys, happy holidays. Happy Eid-El-Kabir to all our Muslim friends too. As you were preparing for the whole festivity and holiday this week, a lot of trends had taken social media by storm, so just calm down and come along.

Yes, calm down.

We are only towing the wise words of a young philosopher. Recently, a video trended online of a young boy pleading with his mom to ‘calm down’, as he was about to get a spanking.

Distinguished @segalink, your client has entered it this night. Mummy calm down kor 🙄🤣😂

As usual, the social media world reacted to the video. While some found it funny and cute, others didn’t.

Useless Zlatan will soon enter studio and sing mummy calm down #CalmDown

”Mummy calm down”…. 🤣🤣🤣

Wisdom of that 4 year old!
"Mummy calm down" Most Parents react and respond in anger, difficult finding the right response to kirs as not all kids are the same.
"Mummy are you filming me?" Lesson about CONSENT. Apply widsdom before sharing the videos of children on social media.

Interestingly, the video was also acknowledged by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwoolu as he ‘took things away’ from the video.

I saw a video of a charming young boy online asking his mom to ‘calm down’ as she was set to punish him for a misdemeanour. I was moved by his sobriety, which reflected in his promise of “last chance”, when confronted with the fact that he is a regular offender.

Well, the mum must be calm now.

Road Accident at the Airport

If you were wondering, it wasn’t cars, it was planes.

Yeah, you read it right, planes. So this week 2 aeroplanes; a A330-243 owned by Middle East Airline and a Boeing 777 aeroplane operated by Turkish Airline ran into each other at Muritala Mohammed Airport.

MEA A330 collides with Turkish Airlines 777 while taxiing at Lagos Airport, Nigeria. No injuries reported.

While there was no casualty, social media didn’t fail to have their fun about the event.

Two Airplane collide in Lagos Airport. MEA A330 collides with Turkish Airlines 777 at the airport Everyone is safe, no injuries reported.

Our Pilots no dey see road again 😩. Lockdown has made them forget how to drive plane.

Someone was asking if they had no network to communicate with each other? Were the airplanes on Airplane mode?

Lagos Airport.

The Kiki-Sega Saga

Smile GIF - Find on GIFERNice Rhyme?

Popular online activist Segun Awosanya, popularly known as Segalink this week, attacked journalist and activist, Kiki Mordi for playing “the role of the hitman”. This is as she sent threats to him and Seyitan Babatayo when he intervened in the police case between Seyitan and musician, D’Banj.

Kiki Mordi is playing the role of the hitman under the auspices of the Coven sending threats to Seyitan and myself. We have it all on record. It will end in premium tears for her & their coven and she will be revealed for the monster that she’s become on this agenda. #EndRape

— SEGA L'éveilleur®🚨 (@segalink) July 25, 2020

This was quite shocking to many as both were initially working to resolve the case between both parties.

With both of them having the fallout and having the go at each other, Nigerians took online to share their thoughts about the matter.

Now, everyone has left the original problem and are focused on Segalink vs Kiki Mordi. When they're statements put out.

People are siding based on which of the two people they hate more not about the facts/lies that has been put out and we know better who the witches are…

You people are telling me Kiki Mordi has been a man hating misandrist masquerading as a feminist even before #Sexforgrades ????

Where is the sign up sheet? I am ready to serve my Queen!

Fear Women

A video went viral this week showing a woman’s reaction when she was confronted by her man with a DNA result of their daughter which shows he’s not the father.

Nabbed Red Handed for Paternity Fraud and she was still saying he shouldn’t have shown her the result on her birthday.

Fear Women.

— Man of Letters. (@Letter_to_Jack) July 29, 2020

This saw many online users take to Twitter to throw jabs at the feminine gender.

Check this out..indeed fear women

#BlackIsKing – No Cap

This week, Beyoncé’s highly anticipated new project, Black Is King was released. The “celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience” featuring numerous popular black faces including Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Rowland, Pharrell Williams and JAY-Z, was shot across the world.

The new visual also includes videos for tracks from the musician’s album for the Lion King Movie last year – “Already,” “Brown Skin Girl,” “Mood 4 Eva” and “My Power”.

Fans have taken online to celebrate the legend and her latest piece of work.

I don’t think y’all understand what this Brown Skin Girl visual means. It just wrecked me. The celebration of every shade of brown skin is resetting the social norm. My god. “We were beautiful before they knew what beauty was.” #BlackIsKing

— Peachez Iman Cummings (@PeachezNYC) July 31, 2020

It makes me so happy and proud that Beyoncé included dark-skinned Indians. This is really a big deal
South indians are discriminated against in our own country for being brown.
Representation matters! 🤎🤎🤎🤎#BlackIsKing

Y’all said she was only showing Africans in huts. She gave y’all mansions!
Y’all said the film wouldn’t show in Africa. She released the film on a Major African Network for Free!
Y’all said she was only showing Old Africa. She gave y’all Africa through Generations! #BlackIsKing
