Surprises as the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2020/2021 Season Opens

On Tuesday 29th October, and Wednesday 21st October, the first leg of the 2020/2021 UEFA Champions League season playoff. We witnessed the return of Europe’s most thrilling football competition and the art of top soccer athletes.

The group stages of the tournament began with surprises and might just end with some more. In this article, we go over some of the unexpected match results from the UEFA champions league 2020/21 opener and matches to watch out for in the group stage:

champions league 2020/2021

Paris Saint Germain vs. Manchester United

Perhaps the only surprise from this encounter was the fact that PSG could still lose to Manchester United after their performance last season. The men from Paris made it to the finals last season but fell behind to Bayern Munich in a 1-0 contest.

Two seasons ago, Manchester United beat PSG 1-3 at the Parc des Princes stadium; everyone thought the Parisians would make a statement in this match with a win. But they fell behind 2 goals to 1 to the Reds.

Chelsea vs. Sevilla

Ok, not much surprise, but here is a match where a 300 million Euro Chelsea squad faces a firepower Sevilla and it ended 0-0. Fans were left a bit disappointed and so are we.

Real Madrid vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Real lost 0-1 to newly-promoted Cadiz last week in La Liga Santander; so it came more like a shock when Shakhtar put them 2-3 to the sword again at home.

Fans all over social media brought Real Madrid’s manager Zinedine Zidane under fire. But we feel the manager can only do much. With these results, Real Madrid needs a total squad rethink.

champions league 2020/2021

Pretty much every other game produced expected or near results, especially Bayern Munich who pounded Athletico Madrid 4-0 as a warning of their intent to retain the European Champions crown.

Now, let’s see the top group matches that you can’t afford to miss:

  • Barcelona vs Juventus: The long-awaited Messi vs. Ronaldo meeting after 3 years since Christiano Ronaldo left La Liga would finally happen. Twice!
  • Athletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich: The Germans already drew first blood with their 4-0 victory over their Spanish rival. But all roads lead to the Wanda Metropolitano for the return leg.
  • Manchester United vs PSG: Neymar and Mbappe have still got a chance to prove to Europe that Manchester United is not superior to the entire French football.
  • Sevilla vs Chelsea: The return leg of this encounter would hold at Seville and we can’t wait to see it! Perhaps, this is one of the most anticipated encounters after Barcelona vs Juventus.
  • Real Madrid vs Inter Millan: These two giants would meet in the third week of the tournament. A big one. We would get to finally see Zidane take on Conte in a European competition.

Why the trend changed from #EndSARS to #EndSWAT

#EndSWAT

The #EndSARS campaign which surged from the beginning of October was a call for police brutality and alleged criminal offenses of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad within the country to end.

While speculators wondered if the campaign would come to an end, following the Inspector General of police’s disbandment of SARS on Sunday, 11th, 2020; many protesters changed course, calling for the IG’s proposition of forming a new anti-robbery unit to be put to the sword.

To go by the name Special Weapon and Tactics (SWAT) team, the new anti-robbery police unit is meant to replace the now-defunct SARS. They would be tasked with carrying out the duties previously assigned to SARS.

The IG of police in a statement chipped in that members of SWAT would undergo a psychological and medical examination before admission into the force. He stressed that the unit would be held accountable for abuse of authority or violation of human rights. According to him, the unit would begin training from Monday, 19th October 2020.

#EndSWAT

But Nigerians took to Twitter just hours after the announcement, calling for the disbandment of SWAT, with the hashtag #EndSWAT trending immediately. According to them, SWAT is just a rebrand of SARS and is not the police reform they request for from the government.

Some of the reasons put forward by protesters for the #EndSWAT campaign include;

  • The use of ex-SARS operative in forming SWAT
  • Admission of ex-convicts into the force, and
  • Lack of disciplinary action drafted for operatives who abuse human rights.

In answer to that, the police have listed the following criteria as the qualification for admitting members into the SWAT team:

  • No former SARS operative would be a member of the SWAT team.
  • Only young, smart, and vibrant officers must be selected for training.
  • Officers must have over seven years of experience and a clean record – he/she must have no pending disciplinary issue, a record of violation of human rights, or a record of misuse of firearms.
  • Officers must be strong enough to withstand the rigors of SWAT training and operations.
  • Selected officers must undergo physical fitness tests, medical and toxicology screening, etc and unqualified candidates shall be discharged.
#EndSWAT

Talks are still been held as to the promised police reforms while protesters continue to make their voices heard.

Diving into the #EndSARS Campaign

The latest hashtag trending all over Nigerian social media is the #EndSARS hashtag which has geared over 3 million tweets, excluding related hashtags such as #EnsSARS #SARSMUSTEND, and #SarsMustGo.

Aside from social media, #EndSARS has been physically protested – most notably, in Lagos and Abuja. People stormed the streets since Tuesday, 6th November 2020, protesting and calling for the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Nigerians overseas, especially those in Europe and North America, equally joined the campaign. While certain Nigerian celebrities voiced their opinions through videos and social media live transmits, non-Nigerian celebrities such as Trey Song, Cardi B, and Big Sean gave online activists a boost by their reactions to the campaign. Most notably, the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing made a tweet on October 11th, 2020, supporting the Nigerian Police decision to ban SARS.

#EndSARS
Protesters on the streets of London, United Kingdom

So why all the noise? You may ask. What is #EndSARS all about and why is the movement making headlines in Nigeria?

How it Started

#EndSARS first began as a social media wake-up call started by Segun Awosanya in 2017 against the alleged brutality of the police unit. The campaign died down in the middle of 2018 as not a lot of people paid attention to activists call for the scrapping of the force.

On Saturday 3 October 2020, a video trended on social media showing a SARS police officer shoot a young Nigerian in front of Wetland Hotel, Delta State. The video prompted a public outcry on social media against the brutality.

Subsequent video and pictures containing alleged actions of SARS officers flooded social media. The campaign resurged with the hashtag #ENDSARS, culminating into advocacies, online activism, and protests.

#EndSARS
Protesters with Nigerian Police Force in Lagos

Nationwide protests started on October 8th; a face-off of peaceful protesters and the Nigerian Police who tried to disperse the crowd through the use of teargas and water sprays. Concurrently, protests broke out in London, Canada, and the United States, calling for the Nigerian government to put an end to the police unit.

Accusations Made Against SARS

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad officers have been accused of illegally arresting Nigerians, especially youths, and extorting money or other valuables from them. SARS has equally been accused of mounting illegal roadblocks, searching without a warrant, rape, treating suspects brutally, and killing innocent Nigerians

In 2016, an Amnesty International report surfaced, accusing SARS of human abuse, cruelty, torture, and degrading treatment of detainees – such as severe beating, hanging, and shooting detainees in the leg.

Inspector-General of the Nigerian Police Force: Mohammmed Adamu

Response from Nigerian Authorities

Given the uproar, the Deputy Governor of Lagos, Femi Hamzat, addressed protesters on October 9, 2020, stressing that the police have no right to arrest or extort citizens of their personal effects without proper investigations and reason. He however alluded protesters to remain peaceful in their protest.

That same day, Lagos State House of Assembly held an emergency meeting to address the petition signed and submitted to the National Assembly by 10, 195 protesters. Some of the issues discussed by the House was the necessity to dissolve the Special Anti-Robbery Squad and set up a new unit in it’s place with a clear code of conduct and sanctions for illegalities.

Yesterday, been Sunday, 11th of October, 2020, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, announced the dissolution of SARS. While some Nigerians took the announcement as a victory, many others called for the permanent elimination of the unit from existence, stressing that the government has banned SARS three times before now without substance.

Keeping Up With The Ball? 5 Things to lookout For in 2020-21 Football Season

New seasons of the English Premier League (EPL), Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga, Italian Seria A and French Ligue un are back.

Just last week, Crystal Palace knocked Manchester United 3-1 at Old Trafford, bringing back the ‘anything can happen’ tingles of the premier league.

In Germany, current UEFA champions and Bundesliga winner, Bayern Munich kickstarted their new season with an 8-0 slaughter of Schalke. Jeez!

Christiano Ronaldo pulled in a late one on the 88th minute as Juventus cruised 3-0 over Sampdoria in Seria A season opener. Guess the race for who’s best between him and his long time rival, Lionel Messi has just begun.

Speaking of Messi; he is yet to record a goal this season as FC Barcelona is just concluding pre-season ahead of 2020-21 La Liga.

Something to look out for, right? Or perhaps, we should look with awe into Ligue Un where Paris Saint Germain sits 8th on the league table haven lost two early matches. Hmmm. . .

With so much cooking up in Europe’s top 5 leagues, here are 5 things to look out for as the 2020-21 season unfolds:

epl seria a la liga bundesliga ligue un

Messi-Barca Ripple

The over-broadcasted news about Messi leaving FC Barcelona would most likely be felt all season long. Every move made by the Argentine would surely be scrutinized in the light of this.

Although reports state that Messi is willing to play one more season with Barcelona, all eyes are on him. Would he punish Barca for refusing to let him go or would he deliver yet another stunning result this season?

Bayern for another UEFA title?

Following a strong year for Bayern Munich last season, experts are predicting the German against might bag themselves yet another UEFA Champions League title; that is if they continue playing as they are currently.

The early 8-0 trashing of strong rivals, Schalke last week already shows Bayern’s intent. And with a solid squad of young talents, an ambitious coach and passionate fans, those predictions might just come true.

Liverpool on the hot seat

Current EPL champions are starting the season in a position all previous EPL winners do find themselves; – defending the title. Jurgen Klopp managed to pull a stunt for the reds last season by winning the title for Liverpool’s after a 30-years old title draught.

Now, he finds himself defending the title against strong contenders; the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea; a team that just spent $300 million on boosting their squad.

Another UEFA, Another Barca, Another Drama?

Barcelona has become the object of mockery in UEFA Champions League following 4 consecutive humiliating exists. The latter being an 8-2 trashing at the hands of Bayern Munich.

The club has shown spirit, however, in starting a new sporting project; signing new talents, urging old legs out, bringing in a more fitting manager, shifting some powers is management, etc; but fans around the world would never forget Barca’s UEFA Champions League woes.

Another UEFA, another Barca!

epl seria a la liga bundesliga ligue un

New Phase for Juventus?

When Christiano Ronaldo joined Juventus, it was solely to help them win the UEFA Champions League. 3 years down the lane, that is yet to happen.

Juventus had to sack Maurizio Sarri following a disappointing season in 2019-20 UEFA and appointed Andrea Pirlo as new manager. Is this the new face to lead Juventus into European glory once again?

Evicted! Keeping Up With BBNaija Eviction (2)

A lot has happened since our last blog post in the BBNaija eviction series. If you’re looking for snippets and pecks into the latest house events, you can always find a pile on Twitter trends. Here, we prefer to wait, gather in the gist and dish it out with clear backup stories; just as you like it.

5 more housemates have left the lockdown house since our last post. Some were evicted singularly, but last night, Biggie gave us that “What?” moment with 3 housemates axed at once.

Here are the latest ex-housemate, and the story behind their eviction from BBNaija 2020:

BBNaija eviction

Kaisha

Ahh, this one pained many. The beautiful northern lady was the fifth housemate to taste Biggie’s axe after falling into the bottom four for possible eviction.

However there was a twist. Kaisha was evicted even after statistics showed that she had more votes than Neo, Trickytee and Wathoni. Fans all over Twitter questioned the authenticity of the votes, but Biggie’s mind was already made up. The lady was out.

BBNaija eviction

Praise

Cool, calm and calculated, Praise was the 6th to leave the house. The 28 years old erotic dancer got the spoon after gathering the least votes out of the four housemates up for eviction 2 weeks ago.

We really got nothing on praise. The guy has been flowing all through with other housemates. It’s only down to shortage of voting fans outside the house.

BBNaija eviction

Tolanibaj

Girl said she would be “missed at Saturday night parties” and we believe her. Tolanibaj had always set the Guiness Saturday night party’s dance floor on fire with her moves and groove. Surely, she would be missed.

Tolanibaj tasted BBNaija eviction after gearing up just 3.57% of total votes from viewers last week. Much to viewers’ dismay, the romantic spark that started between her and Prince days back would never blosom.

Wathoni

Our Kenyan beauty followed Tolanibaj out of the house just seconds after. The shock was written all over her face! But Wathoni stated the week before that she was tired of the house and wihsed to go home. Would we say she got what she wished for?

It doesn’t seem like it. Just days back, she and Brighto began to connect romanticall. She even said she would not allow a fellow female housemate, Dorathy, to take Brighto away from her. Oh well, viewers votes said otherwise.

Brighto

Believe us, this one shocked everyone. Our very own Lord Belish got evicted after summoning only 2.68% of viewers’ votes. No body actually saw this coming but Biggie has his twists. Brighto followed his bestie, Wathoni out of the house seconds after she left.

Named Lord Belish after a popular cunning character from the HBO series, Game of Thrones, Brighto made a name for himself in the house by secretly adding pepper and fire to other housemates situations. He would surely be missed!

The thrice certified engineer said he would be looking forward to adding more professional certificates to his name as he is more of a career person.

Biggie have now evicted 9 housemates, leaving 11 to contest for the grand price of N85 million. Don’t miss an action, VTpass got you covered.

E-payments in Nigeria Post-COVID

E-payments in Nigeria saw a total transformation during the lockdown. Yes, the pains of COVID-19 were felt but perhaps it left us with a few lessons too. We witnessed the difficulties associated with economic stagnation and knew the importance of business activities in any economy.

From the angle of finance, the pandemic gave insights into the future of payments in Nigeria. A study by Accenture revealed the limitation of cash and the increase of digital payment during the lockdown periods worldwide. For Nigeria, this is especially true.

e-payments COVID Nigeria

Even though people withdrew more cash than ever from ATMs around the country, less than 60% of that cash was actually spent. This was due to cash hoardings by people amidst not knowing when the lockdown would be eased.

Lack of physical cash gave boosts to online payments. Cashless and contactless payments became the norm so as to reduce the risk of contracting the virus.

The long queues at ATMs were yet another factor. It was far easier to make payments digitally than paying in cash. Many individuals and businesses that could operate during the lockdown switched to electronic payment. All of these exploded e-payments around the country.

Just how much explosion? you might ask. In May 2020, e-payments in Nigeria jumped by 82% to ₦11.676 trillion from ₦6.421 trillion in April 2020. An all-time high!

Online retailers and payment platforms saw increases in patronage too, even as other consumer spendings decreased. This was evidenced by the increase in the number of online stores and internet marketers during the lockdown.

Now, as the country kick-starts full operations of economic activities, the question remains; would the rate of e-payments in Nigeria reduce, or would it increase in the coming months?

e-payments COVID Nigeria

Why e-Payment would increase

Electronic bill payments for goods and services around the country are only bound to increase. Here are two major post-COVID reasons why this would happen:

  • Personal Precautions:

The crisis may be relaxed but the ‘panic’ still exists for many. Millions of people would still prefer to take the safer route when making bills payments – that is to pay online.

Many health experts have warned about the risk of contacting COVID-19 from unaware, new carriers not detected during the quarantine. As such, the need to protect personal self from contacting the virus through cash handling or contact payment would keep a lot of people on the online payment track for a very long time.

  • Convenience:

For many, the quarantine was their chance to experience online payment for the first time. Convinence has been the major driver of e-payments since inception; it’s no wonder why a large percentage of new users would want to stick with the system.

World Bank already predicted that 25% of all money transfers would be done electronically by 2025; a chunk of that increase coming from new e-payment users in Africa. Convinence and speed of payment are major drivers that would prompt these new users to switch paymently to e-transactions.

Insurance: 5 Common Myths vs Facts

What comes to your mind when the word “Insurance” is mentioned? Do you cringe or smile? There are sets of perceptions in most people’s minds about Insurance, but are these perceptions myths or facts?

There is no denying that insurance can be incredibly complicated, both in theory and practice. So it’s little wonder that sometimes rumors, myths, and untruths can be held as fact and disseminated as such.

In this article, we want to smoothen out some of the twigs from the drink. Here are 5 common myths about Insurance and the facts that prove them wrong:

Long read? Watch video summary instead

Myth 1: Insurance is expensive

Let’s start from where it concerns our pockets shall we? The popular misconception that only the rich can afford insurance is as funny as it sounds.

Let’s face it, that idea is so old and gone. With stiff competition in today’s insurance market, premiums for covers gotten more affordable. For some covers like motor insurance in Nigeria, prices can be as low as N2,500 a year!

The most remarkable of insurance cost is that of health insurance in Nigeria. A 2017 report puts the average cost health insurance plan at N35,000 for individuals and N125,000 for families. While this is affordable considering the cost of medical treatment in the country, you could get top-notch health covers (with private treatments) for even less at VTpass.

Now, imagine having all-round health insurance for only N15,000/year (N2000/month) for individuals and N60,000/year (N5,500/month) for families?

How affordable can that get?

insurance myths

Myth 2: Insurance companies are fraudsters

I was in a conversation with a friend one Saturday evening when an Insurance salesman walked by. His pitch was about how fast an insured would be compensated after a loss. You should have seen how my friend chased him away.

He did this because of the terrible experience he had with an insurer who refused to compensate him after a loss occurred against his burglary cover.

The mistrusts in insurance companies is perfectly understandable. Agreed, there are fake insurers out there who aren’t really in business to serve but to steal.

However, not all insurers are fraudsters. We have reputable, world-class insurers in Nigeria. In 2019, total claims paid out by insurance companies in Nigeria amounted to N98.9 billion; a 16.5% increase from N84.9 billion paid out in 2017. If all insurance companies are fraudsters, banks and top businesses would not commit hundred of millions annually to insurers to cover potential risks.

The solution is simply to buy insurance from reliable and trusted sources only. Companies that are backed but by NAICOM and duly regulated.

Myths 3: Is Not Safe to buy Insurance online

For real? Wow.

So we can literally buy airtime and data, work online, transfer money, pay electricity bills, do all kinds of stuff online – but not insurance? Terribly wrong!

Digital technology is the future no one can escape from. Today with reliable online platforms like VTpass, your cell phone, and internet connection; while sitting in your home or office, you can get any insurance you want!

At VTpass, we deliver your policy to you digitally and physically after purchase. When it comes to claims, you can trigger settlement by clicking the claim button on our website. It’s that easy.

A word of advice though; only buy from proven and trusted online platforms. Visit www.vtpass.com/insurance today.

Myths 4: Buying Insurance takes a long and tedious process

If you’ve tried buying insurance in the ’90s you would be amazed by the paperwork that goes with it. Then there are the long questionings by medical examiners or risk assessors, etc.

All that is old news now.

Insurance companies have modified proposal forms and other documents to collect only the barest, necessary information (no one is going to ask if your mum had green eyeballs or not). Add that improvement to today’s digital technology and we have an insurance system that delivers covers in minutes!

insurance myths

Today, you can get a motor cover in less than 10 minutes when you buy at VTpass. No stress. We have eliminated the need for tedious processes with our innovative payment solution.

Evicted! Keeping Up with BBNaija Eviction Night (1)

The on-going Big Brother Naija (Lockdown) Season 5 has been everything but boring. From housemates‘ romance to in-house fights and interesting games and tasks. But no-one is watching the show for fights and romance alone, who does that? Housemates’ eviction is part of BBNaija sauce and as expected, hot sauce has been served.

This year, Biggie seems to be interested in serving it two-by-two. First, we had two ladies evicted from the house two weeks ago, then two guys followed suit last Sunday.

Here are the stories behind the evictions and who the ex-housemates are:

Ka3na

The single mom and dreamer of a fashion empire was the first to get Big Brother’s spoon. After falling behind other housemates in terms of getting only 1.28% of the viewer’s vote, she was evicted from the house.

Bad rumors have it that she had something with fellow housemate, Praise, before her eviction. Well, rumor it is, rumor it shall be.

bbnaija eviction

Lilo

Beautiful 23-years old dietician got served the sauce along with Ka3na in the first eviction night. With only 1.52% of votes from viewers, she got evicted from the house.

A week before that; she had a conversation with Big Brother in the Diary Room about her romantic relationship with fellow housemate, Eric. Save to say, that wasn’t enough to save her from the BBNaija eviction.

Eric

Coming third just behind his trending in-house girlfriend is Eric. The fitness instructor was nominated for eviction with only 1.37% votes. However, he was the most talked-about housemate on Twitter right after eviction with over 18,000 mentions.

Eric really made waves when he was caught on camera enjoying noddles the very night his bestie, Lilo got evicted. No joy, no joy.

bbnaija eviction

Tochi

Okay, this one came as a freaking surprise to many. The 28 years old rapper from Imo state followed Eric out of the house on Sunday night after Biggie served his sauce.

While Tochi was known for his calmness and long stories, viewers claimed he didn’t have enough content to pull the votes. I’m going to especially miss him, but, well; the show must go on!

Show goes on!

Next eviction night holds suspense for all of us. Who shall be next? No one knows but Biggie and we can’t afford to miss it! That is why you must subscribe your DStv or GOtv to watch the drama live. A lot is going on in the house but there is only so much we can blog about.

Don’t miss our next Eviction Follow-up. VTpass got you covered.

Champions League Resumes 7th August, Finally

When major football leagues (EPL, La Liga, Seria A, and Bundesliga) resumed; fans got their tint of hope of possible Champions league resumption. Although the date of resumption was announced by UEFA 3 months ago, the feeling of ‘it’s finally here!’ can’t be really shaken off.

After a five-months hiatus due to the global pandemic, the UEFA Champions League and Europa League resume August 7th, 2020 in order to play out the pending matches of this troubled season. 

champions league

Subscribe your GOtv, DStv or Startimes now

However, things would take a different shape. UEFA set out two mini competitions to solved the puzzle of travelling amidst the pandemic. Uncompleted round of 16 matches would be played out in host stadiums on 7th and 8th of August. Then from 12th August, all roads lead to Lisbon, Portugal where quarter-final matches would be played in knockout form. Oops, no home and away.

Here’s a timeline of UEFA Champions League activities:

  • 7-8 August: Round of 16-second legs (host home stadiums)
  • 12-15 August: Quarter-finals (Lisbon)
  • 18-19 August: Semi-finals (Lisbon)
  • 23 August: Final (Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica, Lisbon)

So put on your soccer shoes, yank out the popcorn and enjoy. Major round of 16 ties includes:

  • Barcelona vs Napoli: It was honors when this two first met in a 1-1 draw at Naples. The Spanish giants would be at home advantage when they host Napoli at the Camp Nau
  • Manchester City vs Real Madrid: Current Spanish champions fell at home to City in the firs encounter. They face an uphill task coming back against Gurdiola’s men at the Etihad.
  • Juventus vs Lyon: Lyon leads 1-0 in this encounter. The men from Turin would be better prepared to host their opponent who play away this time around.
  • Bayern vs Chelsea: This is perhaps the center of attention. With Chelsea trailing 3-0 from the first leg; it’s looking bleak for the Blues when they finally face Bayern in Germany.

It’s really juicy as it sounds, we can’t wait! You can latch unto the action by subscribing your GOtv, DStv, or Startimes now. Don’t be told of what’s going down. And when you’re not watching football, relax into the drama of the on-going Big Brother Naija Season 5!
