Super Eagles Soaring at AFCON

On Wednesday night, we got to witness the Super Eagles of Nigeria soar to a 2 – 0 win against Guinea Bissau in their third game of the group stages of the AFCON. The eagles in doing so, became the only side at this year’s AFCON to record a 100% record in the group stages. The only side. That’s some feat!

Nigeria had already won the group before kick-off, reward for victories recorded against Mohamed Salah’s Egypt and Sudan. It’s the first time that the super eagles of Nigeria have won all three AFCON group matches since 2006. Champions in 1980, 1984 and 2013, is it too early to start dreaming of a fourth?

Time will tell. Nigeria is definitely up there though with the likes of Cameroon and Senegal as one of the tournament favourites. And with their record, many sides will be looking to avoid them when the last 16 draw is done.

Hope or Not?

While there are still some good teams in the competition, the Super Eagles go into the draw full of confidence. This team has done well for themselves. Considering the fact that they have played 3, scored 6, and gotten 9 points out of a possible 9, they have done well indeed. What more? They are actually playing good football. This actually looks like a team, rather than the usual composition of individuals we are used to getting.

Truth is, many of us wrote them off before they even kicked a ball. We have had our hearts broken too many times that optimism was on very short supply. However, this current crop have us believing again.

Whichever way it goes, don’t miss out on any of the action at this year’s AFCON. You can easily make your Cable TV paymentspay electricity billsbuy airtime and data with VTpass. It’s as easy as click, pay and go to pay your bills, stay connected, and enjoy the 2021 AFCON action live!

3 Things You Didn’t Know About Prepaid Meters

Prepaid Meters are the in-thing for anyone leasing an apartment or renting space right now. It affords the opportunity to be able to monitor your electricity usage and avoid paying when there is no power. Prepaid Meters, like the name implies, are loaded with units before you begin to use them. Pretty much like the airtime recharge system.

Here are three things you probably didn’t know about Prepaid Meters

1. Free Units Are Not Free.

Nothing is free even in Freetown, and this is Nigeria. When you newly acquire a prepaid meter, you will be told as an incentive that your meter comes with free units for you to use at first. When the units are depleted, you can now begin to pay. This is not entirely true. Yes, the meter comes loaded with units, but, they are not free. You realise this when you want to purchase units and are told that there is a debt on your meter. Some of us learnt the hard way, it’s better you are prepared in advance. So, when you get your meter, use the units that come with in with the knowledge that you will pay for it, eventually. It isn’t free.

2. You Can Calculate and Monitor Your Units

One of the major advantages of the Prepaid Meter is that you can track your power consumption. You don’t have to wait till your bill arrives. If you want to check your prepaid balance or know the amount of total credit used, press 07 on your prepaid keypad and hit the blue button. Your available balance will be displayed on the screen in this format (150.15). This usually works for most prepaid meters.

3. Making Payment is Easy With The Right Platform

Remember when you would stand outside begging NEPA officials not to disconnect you while someone ran to the nearest NEPA office to help you pay your bill? Those are stories now. Just like with Prepaid Meters, disconnection is unnecessary, with VTpass, going out to pay bills is unnecessary. Simply log on to www.vtpass.com or download the mobile app to buy airtime or data, pay electricity or education bills, Pay DStv, GOtv or and Startimes subscription or buy insurance cover.

Maria and Pere Kiss In BBNaija

Have you heard about the Maria and Pere kiss? Have you seen the hot steaming kiss that Maria and Pere shared in the Big brother house? Wedding bells are ringing! Fam! We watch BBNaija for the drama and that is exactly what we are getting served this season.

Nigerians are already planning the wedding online as the internet is already ablaze with the news. It appears we have another potential Teddy A and BamBam situation on our hands. Biggie’s House appears to now be the hottest place to find love. We can’t just get over that kiss.

Wait a minute, what kiss? That actually didn’t happen. But the only reason you wouldn’t know that already is because you haven’t subscribed your GOtv or DStv. Just as the only reason you wouldn’t also know that no wedding is being planned online is because you are managing the small data you have and cannot even use it to view WhatsApp statuses.

My Prepaid Meter Tragedy

The Prepaid Meter is fast becoming popular, but this wasn’t always the case. When introduced, many were excited at the prospect of paying for the exact electricity units used. No more estimated bills. No more inaccurate readings. Also, an end to paying for electricity you were not supplied.

Another group of people didn’t react as well to this. Those who had tampered with their meters so they would have reduced bills to pay. I was one of such people. Yes. Corruption is everywhere. I didn’t even register for the prepaid meter, yet it was brought. That’s how I knew that my village people wanted to start writing final year project on my head.

The prepaid meter came with free units and for a while, I was in heaven. All was well in paradise until barely two weeks later, the units finished. I needed to make payment. I “shaparly” logged on to www.vtpass.com where a friend had told me I can make my electricity bill payments. In less than a minute, my IKEDC payment was done. Seamless, just the way I like it!

I still did not have light! How come? I contacted VTpass 24-hour support, chatted with Laolu, and He told me that there was debt on my meter. New meter? That’s when I discovered that the free units are not actually free! I paid and got more units. Now there’s light almost all through the day, great! 4 days later, my units were depleted. I could not cry. Please coman take this prepaid meter back, I don’t want. Bring back awa postpaid, I’m in severe pains.

I have learnt my lesson. Every thing is deducted from your units. Now, even my wall sockets go off if I am not using it, because this prepaid life is difficult!

Inside The English Premier League Week 2

It’s back and we’ve all missed it, yes, we’re talking about the English Premier League! Another season is underway and we’re already in week 2. It’s another shot at glory for some, while for others, it’s a battle to remain in the top flight. Messi may not be here, but no one can argue that the EPL is still the most entertaining league in European football. Missing out on the action? Say no more! Just visit www.vtpass.com now to renew your Cable TV subscription and get plugged in to your world of sporting action. Meanwhile, here’s what happened in week 2.

Men Against Boys As Chelsea Schools Arsenal At Home.

One thing was glaring, Chelsea is not Arsenal’s mate. Firstly, Chelsea has 2 Champion’s League trophies over Arsenal who have none. Secondly, Arsenal were completely played off the field here, with Lukaku playing like a man on a mission, bringing back memories of Didier Drogba against Arsenal. The sad thing is that we all saw this coming, despite Arsenal’s bright start to the game. It was the same old story, with the Arsenal team starting off sharp but unable to maintain their intensity. This Blues are a team on a mission while Arsenal faces the possibility of going into the international break bottom of the table as they face last season’s champions, Manchester City next.

United Equals Away Unbeaten Record But Silverware Is Always Better

It was mixed feelings for Manchester United as they came from behind to claim a point against The Saints. It extended their away unbeaten run to 27 games (a joint record) but also scuppered the start to the season they would have wanted following their 4 – 0 win in the opening game. The draw also doesn’t help their bid to keep Paul Pogba. Pogba has started the season in record breaking form, bagging 5 assists in 2 games. United’s star man is yet to extend his contract beyond 2022 and has stated he prefers trophies to records. Ouch. Shots fired, United. Point taken (pun intended)

5-star City Bounce Back In Style

City fans got their smile back as they bounced back from an opening day defeat at Tottenham. They trounced newly promoted Norwich City 5 – 0, with record signing Grealish also getting off the mark. This is how we are used to seeing Guardiola’s Manchester City, winning, with huge score lines.

It’s just week 2 but this English Premier League season already promises loads of entertainment as there were wins for Liverpool and Tottenham also. That is where VTpass comes in. Make your Cable TV payments, pay electricity bills and buy airtime and data so you can pepper your friends as your team performs well, or be peppered if you’re on the receiving end. Whatever your payment needs, VTpass has you covered!

Dorime: The Food Mix-Up

This is the real life account of a food mix-up saga that unfolded in our office and all the dorime that came with it.

It happened on Monday morning. Mike, rushing to avoid getting to the office late, quickly grabbed the black nylon containing his food and took off without checking what was packaged for him. Can somebody play Dorime track 1?

On arriving at the office, Mike proceeded to the cafeteria and dropped his food, so eager to start the day’s work that he still didn’t check to see what had been packaged in the black nylon. DJ please play Dorime track 2

As the day went by, Francis, the office assistant, went out to buy lunch for some colleagues. Mike later goes for lunch, picks up his food, finally checks it, sees one boiled egg. He thought it strange because he knew there was chicken at home but was just too hungry to care. He started eating and was almost done when…

Shayo, his colleague, walks in and starts looking for his food with Francis the office assistant. Mike didn’t pay too much attention until he heard “there was a boiled egg in the food.” The description of the food was so apt that it became obvious that Mike don chop person food o…

Upon investigation, Mike’s real food was found having chicken, fish and snail as protein. What sort of sorcery is this? Mike wondered!

Luckily for Mike, Shayo didn’t make a big deal out of it as it was the close of his shift. That’s how Iyanu, another colleague who was in the right place at the right time, ate free food!

Obi Cubana’s Rise: Lessons From Mum’s Burial

One of the hottest, most talked-about events in the Nigerian social circles right now has been Obi Cubana’s mum’s burial and nothing seems to be enough to kill Obi Cubana’s shine.

From the over 400 cows donated to the host, the $100,000 diamond pendant, 67 private jets that landed Oba to the fleet of over 500 luxury cars, the ceremony was as loud as loud can be. We followed this story closely and here are five lessons we gathered from it.

1. Nigerians can joke about anything.

Like, I’m not even sure we take even ourselves seriously anymore. This has to be the height. Somebody’s mother died and people were everywhere on social media saying “God when?” Seriously guys???

2. Invest in your social capital.

They said connect with people, you say no, you’re an introvert, you like your personal space, etc. Being rich in people is a thing, your network is your net-worth. If the sheer amount of cows donated and money sprayed/flung doesn’t change your mind, what will?

3. Make your own soap.

As usual, the whole saga had people saying “cut soap for us” and the likes. In an interview with bbc pidgin, Obi Cubana was asked to cut soap for Nigerians and he responded “dem no dey cut soap for anybody for dis world.” In other words, people, make your own soap o.

4. Work hard consistently.

Since soap cutting is out of it, working hard consistently is the next best thing out there then. Being excellent at what you do will not be enough, you will have to also be consistent with it. Hustle o, make your girlfriend no leave you go party for oba.

5. Nigerian scammers are creative.

All was well and good after the burial ceremony, until I got a dm from Obi Cubana asking for an airtel recharge to help make money fly in my household. Like, what???

Nigerians don’t joke when it concerns their money. Avoid scammers easily with www.vtpass.com, where you can buy airtime/data, subscribe GOtvDStv, or Startimes, pay electricity bills, buy insurance or pay educational bills at the tap of a button.
