There’s a new update on making DStv and GOtv payments on VTpass, and we’re here to tell you all about it. At VTpass, we believe so much in customer satisfaction. That’s why we continue to make necessary updates in response to your feedback.
We believe that you should get value immediately you make payment, all things being equal. We however have noticed that some customers do not get reconnected immediately. Also, we noticed that some customers are prone to making errors when making payment for their DStv and GOtv, paying to the wrong IUC number. This update helps with these issues. Read how below.
What The Update Is
When making DStv and GOtv payments on the platform, you will have to input your IUC number first for the system to verify before proceeding to select your desired package. Other fields remain frozen and inactive until then. Attempts to input other details before then won’t work. Only your email will be auto filled if you have a pre-existing account on VTpass.
What This Update Does
Immediately you input your IUC number, our system will display the details to you. That way, you see the name on the decoder, current package, expiry date and cost of renewing the same package before making payment. Neat, we know!
Now your decoder gets reconnected immediately. Also, you can ensure that payment is being made to the valid IUC number. No more incorrect IUC payments going through.
Another benefit of this update is identifying when you want to upgrade or downgrade your bouquet. After the IUC details have been verified, click on “select what to do” and choose between “renew current bouquet” or “change bouquet”
Renewing bouquet keeps you on the bouquet you are currently on, while changing bouquet gives you the option to move to a higher or lower bouquet of your choice automatically and instantly.

In many ways, this was the perfect weekend; we witnessed the bulk of the Premier League Week 9 round of matches and in many ways, it was a glorious weekend. Some clubs won. Some clubs lost. As always. However, things didn’t go exactly the way some would have planned. Anyway, here are our thoughts on how the weekend went.
Liverpool 5 Steps Ahead of United.
Manchester United looked anything but united on the day. Defence utterly in shambles, midfield non-existent and overrun, attack under supplied. It was the little boys against the big men. This was supposed to be a firecracker of a match but ended up being a walk in the park for the Liverpool team, who at half time were already running away with a 4-0 lead. In all honesty, at that point, Liverpool didn’t even need to be playing spectacularly well, Manchester United were playing spectacularly terrible as it were. United had zero synergy, looked devoid of a game plan, were tactically naïve.
If not for De Gea, the final scoreline should have read something more like 8-0. This was a day to forget for United, and it’s back to the drawing board, if they even have one. Any defeat against Liverpool is hard to take for United fans on a normal day. One so humiliating as this and at home is on a whole different level. United’s next run of matches look very grim. It’s hard times for United fans, check up on them.
Chelsea Thrashes Norwich
Firstly, the major talk had been about how Tuchel was going to manage with his star strikers out due to injuries. On evidence of this though, no problem. Following their win in the Champions League, the Champions proceeded to dismantle Norwich at Stamford Bridge, with Mason Mount scoring an hat trick. Subsequently, Mount and Callum-Hudson Odoi became the 16th and 17th different players to score for Chelsea in all competitions this season, more than any other Premier League side. A team on a mission.
That ability to spread the goals around the side is the mark of champions. For instance, it’s Premier League Week 9, but surely an encouraging sign for Thomas Tuchel as he looks to juggle five competitions this winter, including the rearranged World Cup in early 2022. Chelsea won’t have an easier afternoon this season.
Mancity Pass Brighton Test
Firstly, Brighton have been nothing short of impressive this season. For them to still be 5th on the Premier League table even after defeat here is a testament of just that. Pep had tasted rare defeat here in the final game of last season. In this match, he sent out his team with instruction to secure victory early. City’s first half performance was exquisite. They were smooth, efficient, unbreeched. But they will rarely face an examination like the one they experienced in the second half at the Amex.
Even as they led 3-0, Graham Potter’s Brighton tested everything about City. Their game management, their resilience, their defensive capabilities. And City’s manager Pep Guardiola was delighted they passed the test. He recognised few teams in the Premier League could have emerged from this with three points, despite being 3 goals up at halftime. At fulltime, it was kudos to City, but Brighton also gave a good account of themselves, despite the scoreline.
It started out as a slow Friday morning, we couldn’t wait for the day to end and for the weekend to begin, until hot weekend gist dropped suddenly! Get ready. Grab your popcorn and drink, because this one is very loud!
Segz, as we fondly call our customer service boss, came to serve us hot peppersoup gist to drive away the cold on a rainy day. Not to drag this on any further, sit back, relazzz, and enjoy the gist!
So, there’s this spot where Segz normally gets meals from sometimes on his way to work. On getting there this interesting Friday morning, he meets a large crowd gathered. One would have thought a protest was happening or something, and you know in Lagos, you learn to be wary of large crowds. You either have something stolen from you, get a stray punch land on your face, or maybe even get roped into something you know nothing about. Ehnehn nau!
Anyway, the woman selling food downloads the full gist to our guy and he couldn’t believe his ears. Whuuuttt! In his words “I am used to seeing things like this in movies, this is the first time I am confirming that it is real.” What could he have heard, you wonder…
So, it turns out this guy slept over at his girlfriend’s place the previous night. That doesn’t warrant a crowd yet right? Chill. This guy purported used stuff because he wanted to kill somebody’s daughter, only for day to break and, sadly, he had passed away.
The hot weekend gist gets more interesting when you add in the fact that this guy was already married. So he went to play an away game and passed away at the house of his side chick. Now side chick is crying and people are gathered. Problem! How do they tell his wife? What will the wife tell people? True true, problem no dey finish o, wa ti ma gbo!
Imagine you’re going on a vacation and will be away from your TV for a while. What happens to your DSTV subscription then? What about when you have to go on a work trip and there’s no one else at home? You don’t want your active DSTV subscription to go to waste without anyone using it, not in this economy. In such cases, here’s what you can do to suspend your DSTV subscription temporarily.
Although DSTV is a prepaid service (you pay before you watch) subscribers are allowed to suspend their account for the period of 7 – 14 days (1 – 2 weeks) twice in a year. It’s true. Subscribers prefer pay-per-view but we’ll make do with what we have. It comes with a catch though.
You can only suspend your account twice in a year.
You must have an active subscription validity of at least 7 days before applying for suspension.
Make the suspension request 2 days before the desired date of suspension.
You can only suspend your account for a minimum of 7 days and maximum of 14 days at a go.
How To Go About It
To suspend your DSTV subscription temporarily, here are three ways you can go about it. The only thing you need is a scanned copy of your ID card which could be your national ID Card, Voter Card or International Passport. To suspend your DSTV account temporarily, just:
Send a suspension request mail to “email@example.com” with the subject as “Temporal service suspension of DSTV account” stating your account details with the scanned copy of your id card attached.
Or put your request through to DSTV support on 234 908 236 8533, supply them all details to verify that the account belongs to you and they’ll guide you on what to do.
Alternatively, you may prefer to visit any DSTV service centre around you. Go with valid ID and request for your account to be temporarily suspended.
To reconnect your account after suspension, you need to do nothing. Your account is automatically reconnected once the suspension time elapses. Of course, making DSTV, data, airtime, electricity, insurance, GOTV, Startimes and other payments is easy peasy when you use VTpass!
As the premier league week 8 kicked off on Saturday, the energy that club rivalry brings came back, and fans absolutely loved it. Country football is great. But club level is where we get to see footballers star, week in, week out. Here are the major talking points.
Leicester Down United
The International break was filled with the buzz around Cristiano Ronaldo and his record breaking 10th hat trick for Portugal. The Manchester United star however, cannot seem to be able to transfer his good fortune to the club. Leicester’s victory was no smash and grab. They beat United, fair and square. Had a better game plan, were hungrier, played better. Overall, they deserved to win here, and win they did. The 4-2 score line is sure to bruise some of the big egos in the United dressing room, but, the earlier the better. United’s upcoming fixtures till November 30th is nothing to be excited about, with Atalanta, Liverpool, Tottenham, Mancity, Villareal, Watford, Chelsea and Arsenal all lying in wait. United is the cherry right now, and everyone wants a bite.
Salah’s The Man
Firmino might have grabbed headlines with his hat trick this weekend, but the name on everyone’s lips on Merseyside is Salah. Mo has his imprint firmly as a club legend already. What a pass for Sadio Mane’s goal! It was a lovely ball he bent around the Watford defence for Mane’s opener. It’s called the pass of a master. A masterpiece of a performance it was, as he went on to score himself at Vicarage Road, courtesy of another mesmeric dribble. 4 years ago, he started his career at Liverpool with a goal at Watford. That season, he went on to rack up 44 goals. Many said he would be a 1-season wonder. 4 years after, however, he only seems to get better and better.
Elsewhere, there were wins for Man city over Burnley, Tottenham away at Newcastle, and Chelsea away at Brentford. Chelsea are sitting pretty at the top of the standings. It’s just Premier League Week 8, but, you know, League titles are won in bits.

76 days after, we arrived at the BBnaija Season 6 finale in style! The show has steadily continued to gather a large fanbase over the seasons and season 6 brought with it twists and turns that viewers simply were not expecting. Whether or not you watch the show however, there were lessons to be learnt, and here are a few.
Immediately the show started this season, every thought Maria was going to be queen bee. She thought so herself. Always in the conversations, pretty, great accent, she was the alpha female to beat, and she knew it. Alas, it would not be so. She was evicted at the beginning of the sixth week. Many viewers even thought Biggie was going to pull a twist to bring her back. That’s how powerful she was. It wasn’t to be so however. Turns out in this life, you have to be humble, or pretend to be. Even general Pere calmed down drastically the moment she got evicted. He got the message. Loud and clear at that!
Character over Content
Although the show and housemates are largely followed because of the content churned out, Nigerians will apparently not hesitate to call rubbish what it is. Boma and Tega felt they were giving us content when they were doing hanky panky in the house, they wouldn’t have expected the backlash that came with it. They got evicted from the show, Tega is battling to keep her mental health as Nigerians keep coming for her from all angles. Boma, to a large extent is less under attack. He wasn’t the married one, after all. Fair? We can’t say. Subsequently though, we doubt any future housemates will be going this route.
There’s Love, and then there’s Saga and Nini
We really don’t understand this Saga and Nini drama. First, Saga fails his task because Nini was angry at him. Next, Nini disappears from the house (her own task). Saga proceeds to make an utter fool of himself, crying, moping about, the entire works, while Nini watches him on TV. It was super obvious Biggie was involved. Nini couldn’t be kidnapped! The amazing thing is that Nini kept mentioning her boyfriend throughout the show. Now that the show has ended, we are waiting to see where things go. Those of you that have found love, please tell us, is this how it does y’all?
Food is the way to a man’s heart, only if you’re a woman
The eventual BBnaija season 6 finale winner, Whitemoney, found out the hard way. Despite the endless and relentless cooking done by Whitemoney through the show, he and Pere never seemed to connect, with Pere adamant to send him packing. It wasn’t until Maria was sent out of the house that Pere calmed down a bit and readjusted his strategy. It is quite interesting to note that Pere and Maria would eat Whitemoney’s food, but still go and nominate him for eviction. This life!
In a world filled with so much acting and pretence, real recognizes real. ex-housemates like Cross, Liquorose, and Angel won several hearts from their time on the show with their originality. Fans will confirm that Cross and Angel seem genuine, so it’s easier to connect with them, and Liquorose was free-spirited and lovable. Little wonder they made it into the final 6. Little wonder!
Know how to cook good food
Seems like a joke, but this rings true. It was debated endlessly if cooking was Whitemoney’s strategy or not. Right now, it doesn’t matter. He won and that’s on periodt! If you’re handy in a place others aren’t, you already have the advantage. You just have to know how to use it well. Find out what makes you indispensable, and press your advantage home
When it’s your time, it’s your time!
I remember myself and my wife talking about those we wanted in the final. She said something very profound. She said “Liquorose deserves to win it, but Whitemoney is graced.” That statement held true as both made it to the final two (we predicted the top 6 accurately if I may add). Whitemoney eventually won. Liquorose, JayPaul, and Whitemoney have tales of coming close to getting into the house in previous seasons and missing out but now, they got to compete for more money,. Clearly, it was their time.
Get a Business To Mind, Literally
As the BBnaija Season 6 finale came to a close on Sunday, Ebuka asked the top 6 housemates “what’s next” as they were being evicted. Practically all of them mentioned “business” amongst other things they were interested in going into. These are housemates who are already millionaires as a result of their winnings from the show. Meanwhile, Onome and Tunji will not go into business because they are still busy slaying. Continue! Sapa will soon come knocking on your door. Get a side hustle, urgent 2k has finished inside market.
Whitemoney is a clown
Ehnehn now! He has to be. He definitely has plans of joining the comedy industry. Or what else could he have meant when he told Ebuka that he wanted to go into music after the show because his voice cannot waste, Mazi! Which voice naaa…
