Messi, France, and the FIFA World Cup Final

18-12-2022 – An outlandish display of euphoria. Emotions rose high in the Asian weather, and the splendid Qatari ambiance. The excitement. The nervousness. A game of 90 minutes, split into two halves of 45 minutes each. This particular one has wiggled out of its standard definition, and it has taken on sensational attributes. This FIFA world cup final has defied imagination. It has exceeded expectations. Crackling. Sparkling. Dazzling. Nerve-racking display of soaring footballing competence. It will take off into its own life, becoming unusually lively and perhaps even delighted by its own whim. THE FIFA WORLD CUP FINAL!!! 

In pubs, classrooms, and offices, people will talk forever about that night- that stellar night in Lusail, Qatar.  People will talk about how Messi- in all magnificence and distinction propelled Argentina to their 3rd world cup triumph. Folks will laud Kylian “the bold” Mbappe for how he changed the contest so that you had to commend the loser as well. And children will forever talk about the final that produced 6 goals- more than any final in history. Argentines will praise Martinez, the hero, who stood tall in goal, keeping goals out in service to the Argentines’ grand conquest.  Men will talk about Scaloni, people will praise Deschamps, and people will say ‘truly, this is a contest worth the hype’. 

and it continues

Among the technically savvy fans, there would be arguments about tactics and nifty managerial decisions. They would talk of Scaloni’s technical brilliance starting Angel Di Maria, who constantly created havoc on the left side of the french defense. He caused a penalty, which Messi converted while he himself got on the scoresheet minutes later. Or perhaps they will discuss the substitutes made by France in the 41st minute, which included the tremendous energy of 24-year-old Randal Kolo Muani and 25-year-old Marcus Thuram. The game included a sliver of justice, as Argentina’s Gonzalo Montiel, whose play of the ball with his arm in the 118th minute led to a penalty and a goal from Mbappé that tied the score and delayed a victory 10 minutes after Messi had scored and appeared to have just gotten one, ended up securing that victory with the final penalty kick.

“Montiel… Argentina, champions of the world. Again. At last. And the nation will tango all night long. 36 years ago since Maradona and Mexico, here finally is a nation’s new throng of immortals. Scaloni will be fated, Messi will be sainted” – Peter Drury.

Messi, Argentina, and the World Cup Final

This is not just about Messi. This is about every believer, every fan, every supporter, every fan-boy, and also, the fan girl who dreamt of this day.  The sweat of football gladiators, who wear jerseys instead of armor, and kick balls instead of drawing swords.

All eyes will now turn to the United States, Canada, and Mexico, the hosts of the 2026 world cup. A different ambiance, another culture, same sport. Pressure will now mount upon these countries to replicate Qatar’s achievements. We will talk about this in 2026. Meanwhile, Argentina, the WORLD CHAMPIONS will savor the next 4 years. These events will have a huge place in their history.
More footballing action will continue around the world. Don’t miss any bit of it. Pay your TV Subscriptionbuy electricity units now with VTpass, and stay connected.

BBNaija ShineYaEye Reunion Final

The BBNaija ShineYaEye Reunion Final episode aired on Friday night, 17th of June. Whoosh! It’s been quite the ride. This particular housemates have divided opinions so much. Some are sad to see the show end, while others are glad it’s finally over. Hmm. Truth is, they gave content. Whether it was good or bad is left for you to decide, but they brought the game. There was something to talk about everyday on the reunion show. Call it an escape from your normal routine. Well, it’s finally over, whichever side of the divide you fall on. Here’s our take on the BBNaija ShineYaEye Reunion Final talking points.

WhiteMoney, Maria, Pere and Tega

Ebuka asked the housemates who changed the most after the show in their opinion, and most of them voted WhiteMoney. Shocked, are we? Those who did speak said in the house he was this caring person, and suddenly, outside the house, he became this person who was too busy, or who didn’t care anymore. Ah, well. What we can say is that dude’s strategy obviously worked. He’s too busy making bangers as the musical genius that he is right? Init?

Following that, Peace relayed a situation where Maria walked up to her outside the house about something her fans said. Home girl Maria instantly said she couldn’t recall the incident and if Peace said it happened, then she doesn’t know what to say. All I can say is omo, fear Maria o.

After that, Tega called Pere out for not defending her during the media rounds. He apparently didn’t want to get involved in the drama. Tega was definitely emosh. Her voice when she said “But I begged you.” See where game has ended up sha.

Emmanuel, Liquorose, Cross and Angel, Beatrice and Pere

On the other hand, Emmanuel stated that he never asked Liquorose out, and what they were was never defined. Liquor however rebuffed that to say that it was defined. “Shame on you bro” was the highlight of that exchange, with Liquorose going on to explain the vibe they had. Well, that ship has clearly sunk.

Cross and Angel were back at it. What have you done for me, I did this for your family. This their fight, I don’t know what to think about it honestly. What are you guys even dragging? Can you just rest since you’re not doing again?

It is worth mentioning that Beatrice says she can have Pere anytime she wants him because she is a beautiful lady. Pere said that confidence is attractive. I don’t know what to think. Lol. Are you playing? What kind of playing is this?

And The Rest…

Cross said he would go back into the house if he had another chance. Because there are bills to pay in the outside world. This guy! True though, we know you have bills, and that’s why we’re here. To take care of your Cable TV paymentselectricity billsairtime and data needs, insurance and education bills and more, all on VTpass!

Ebuka, in closing the show, did say that they were the best dressed housemates on the reunion show since it started. We can’t dispute that though. lol. He also did say that despite a lot of the word out there (that they were boring), this season recorded the most votes so far in a BBNaija season. So what you guys talking about? Anyways, Season 7 is coming up, you know who to trust with your bills payments so you don’t miss out on any of the content live.

Tega and Boma Situationship: Reunion Drama

There was more drama in the episode 11 of the BBnaija Shine Ya Eye reunion show as the focus was on the Tega and Boma situationship. Whoosh. What a night it was. What a show it has been. The episode 11 of the show definitely came with a lot of heat. This was definitely one of the most controversial “ships” in and out of the house.

Before we got here though, it’s worth giving a mention to the “Crossgel” shippers. After episode 9 had aired, and Angel and Cross had both shed light on the “ship” situation, with Angel, more or less saying she felt she was more invested in the friendship that Cross, to the point of asking him to say all the things he had done for her. Omo, crazy. She did get bashed afterwards but I think what we say was a lady who cared about someone and wasn’t getting the same energy in return. Sad, really. Truly.

Consequently, Cross did try to defend himself though. He did say that he was at the moment, scared of relationships. It seems however that Angel is just forming hard girl. She seems to like, really like Cross. On the other hand, why does everyone say “we have a really good friendship.” That is to say, all of them are “just friends” now. No wahala. However, Cross and Angel both said they no longer wanted the friendship. Shucks. Another “ship” sunken?

Saskay, Jaypaul and Cross Messy Triangle

Subsequently, on day 10, we had the messy triangle of Saskay, Jaypaul and Cross as the highlight of the show. Fresh out of the game, JayPaul launched a heartfelt campaign in support of Saskay. Sadly, when her time on the show ended, she made an infamous comment in the lines of not knowing who he was.

JayPaul also cited instances where he repeatedly made moves to maintain a healthy friendship with her but she was hellbent on denying him “more times than Judas denied Jesus Christ.” Lol. Judas don dey suffer for wetin poor guy no do o. Saskay in response accused him of being untruthful and having high expectations from a relationship that they never labelled. Tor. Crazy things are happening.

Likewise Cross, when he had the floor to address his grouse, narrated how a midnight visit to Saskay that she initiated was capitalised on by her fans and how they (fans) sparked rumours of them sharing sexual relations. He said Saskay mmust have leaked it for attention.

The Tega and Boma Situationship

In the episode 11, Tega and Boma finally got a chance to shed some light on their situationship. This came after an hot exchange between Maria and Beatrice over, in my opinion, nonsense. People really need to learn how to fight, though. Maria saw that Beatrice was unprepared and used that to her advantage. On the other hand, people online are saying that the only thing Beatrice said that made sense was the fact that Maria was senseless. Ouch!

Back to Boma and Tega though, Boma claimed that Tega had admitted to him, while in the house, that she was already separated from her ex-Husband. “In my head, I was dealing with a single woman,” He said. Not sure we’re having that as no clip of that exists.

For Tega, she said it was all a strategy. She had already agreed with her ex-husband, and then had to change strategy due to meeting JayPaul in the house. The whole story leaves more questions than answers. Holes in the story I guess. Why did you have your wedding ring on when you had a strategy to go into the house “unmarried”? Why did you and your ex-husband “make up” after the show? How come you didn’t say this sooner when the bashing started online? Anyways, they both admitted that they wish they opted for a less volatile strategy in the house.

On a side note, Boma did say people are jealous of him, and that 98% of married men in Nigeria have girlfriends on the side. Omooooor. Na to find me and who dey the remaining 2% ooo.

What next?

Have you been missing out on all this drama? We definitely can’t wait for the next episode of the show, airing Wednesday night at 10pm on AM Urban (DStv channel 153 and GOtv channel 6) and 10:30pm on AM Family (DStv channel 154 and GOtv channel 2). We know you can’t wait also.

Super Eagles Destroy Sao Tome and Principe

Nigeria’s Super Eagles destroy Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 on Monday afternoon. This massive win increases our chances of qualifying for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. 10-0! Most of us couldn’t believe our eyes. Lol. It was a match most didn’t even watch. Many didn’t even know there was a match to begin with. Imagine the shock to see the news of a 10-0 victory. Well, it really happened!

Firstly, you wouldn’t blame supporters of the Super Eagles. Football is a game of passion, and it does affect people. It is why Arsenal fans who are Nigerian should be national treasures. Those guys are trying please. Anyway, as a result, Victor Osimhen’s four goals, Terem Moffi’s brace and goals from Moses Simon, Peter Etebo, Ademola Lookman, and Emmanuel Dennis completed the obliteration at the Stade Adrar in Morocco.

Subsequently, by the time the dust settled, it was a whooping 10-0 demolition. This scoreline is Nigeria’s biggest win ever in a competitive game, beating the previous record of a 10-1 win over Dahomey (Benin) recorded in 1959. Victor Osimhen also bagged four goals and his first ever hat-trick in a Nigeria shirt. The Napoli striker has bagged five goals in two games of the AFCON 2023 Group A qualifiers after his goal saw Nigeria secure all points against Sierra Leone along with his four tonight in Agadir as the Super Eagles destroy Sao Tome and Principe.

Consequently, there are already strong comparisons between Victor Osimhen and Rasheed Yekini. To clarify, Victor Osimhen has now scored 15 goals in just 22 games for the Super Eagles. Who knows, he may be the one who will break Rasheed Yekini’s record of 37 goals for Nigeria with the way he’s going.

What Does This Mean?

As a result, it’s a solid start for the Jose Peseiro era on the Nigeria bench as the Portuguese racks up two wins and 12 goals in his first two competitive matches in charge of the Super Eagles.

Nigeria now lead Group A with six points from two matches, while the Central Africans remain at the base of the log with no points. The Super Eagles continue their campaign against Guinea-Bissau in September.

Liquorose and Emmanuel: The Dubai Fiasco

The BBNaija reunion took some time to get going, but things have started getting spicy, and the hottest gist right now is the saga between Liquorose and Emmanuel. Finally. Some much needed action. Well, this was more melodramatic. Lots of emotions here and there. Sadness, anger, joy. The audience definitely felt it, depending on which ship you were. Here’s what happened…

Liquorose during the reunion show on Friday narrated that she caught Emmanuel and an unknown lady in his room in Dubai. Liquorose accused Emmanuel of disrespecting, lying and cheating while they had a relationship. Oops!

She explained that she walked in on Emmanuel in a very compromising position with another lady during their Dubai trip in November 2021. Liquorose said she had wanted to surprise Emmanuel but when she went to his room, it took him 15 minutes to open the door. Ouch…

Emmanuel’s narration was different. He said he was sleeping when Liquor started knocking. Liquorose came prepared however. She reiterated that they were chatting before she arrived at his room. When Ebuka asked him, he then said he was in bed. It was the looks on the other housemates faces for me. That moment when everyone, including yourself, knows you’re lying, but you’re just too stubborn to admit defeat. See video here. Lol. Well, it really wasn’t funny to see Liquor in that position. To be honest, whether you’re a shipper or not, her hurt came through. Though she handled herself with class and panache, speaking calmly and remaining calm, this was one hurt lady.

What Happened After?

She said Emmanuel then proceeded to say though he still loved her, but he didn’t want to be in a committed relationship with her anymore. This was after he refused to go after her when she walked in on himself and the lady in the hotel room. Ebuka then asked after Emmanuel was done lying, sorry, I mean, talking, if they could remain friends, to which they both responded “No.” Shocking, sad, but it is the way things are now. The Emmarose ship has sunk, and it appears there is no hope of reviving. Let sleeping dogs lie, they say.

BBNaija Shine Ya Eye Reunion

BBNaija Shine Ya Eye Reunion is underway and making waves. Some right, some can be better. But the show we waited for is back on our screens. The show premiered on Thursday, 2nd June 2022 and the gbas gbos has already begun.

Angel vs Maria

As early as Friday, Angel and Maria were already trading words. During the show, a clip was shown where Maria accused Angel of kissing almost all the guys in the house. Spicy! Maria, in defence, noted that what she said was simply her opinion of Angel. And the drama took off from there. Angel called Maria out, saying Maria did the same thing, except kiss, which she (Angel) did only while playing the Truth or Dare games. These clips that get played during the show always causes wahala.

Arin vs Nini

The show aired again on Monday, and we had Arin and Nini at loggerheads next. They were close friends in house, but here traded words over disloyalty in their friendship. Nini’s grouse was over an Instagram comment Arin (or her handler, like she claimed) made on Cross’ Instagram page about the fight. To be honest, this particular matter, even I don’t understand it. Ladies, it’s not by force to be friends, really. Lol.

Boma vs Queen and Beatrice

Subsequently, the show aired again on Tuesday, and this time around, the spotlight was on Boma. Ebuka Obi-Uchendu stirred the hornet’s nest when he brought up the comment Boma made about Tega’s private part. If you remember, during a question game in Biggie’s house, Pere had thrown a question at Boma, wanting to know why he said Tega’s Veejay smelt like fish. In response to Ebuka, Boma stated that he heard from Tega that Queen told her that he, Boma, told Pere that Tega’s veejay smelled like fish. Queen flared up at this point and it was no small matter. Too many “I heard, somebody said, they heard, someone else say” if you ask me.

The Boma and Beatrice moment is definitely what fans of the show signed up for. Yas. Finally. The show had some believing it was boring before now. Both housemates traded words over a comment Boma made describing her as ‘irritating’ while in the house. And then Beatrice went all in. She certainly took no prisoners, attacking Boma’s looks and his behaviour while in the house. Boma reciprocated describing Beatrice as ‘local’ and “be like man” to which Beatrice asserted that his girlfriend couldn’t compare. She told him to keep her name out of his mouth “Mr Madman Boma” Yam pepper scatter scatter! Going by reactions on Twitter, Beatrice on the Reunion show is everything fans expected and more from the BBNaija Shine Ya Eye Reunion.

What’s Next?

We can’t wait for the next episode of the show, airing Wednesday night at 10pm on AM Urban (DStv channel 153 and GOtv channel 6) and 10:30pm on AM Family (DStv channel 154 and GOtv channel 2). We know you can’t wait also.

Special Children’s Day Message For You

As we celebrate Children’s Day today, we are reminded of the times when we would build castles in the sand. Those times we spent with Baba Dudu and Sisi Pelebe, Pako, Digestive and Coconut biscuits…

Reminded of times where we were not weighed down by the weight of responsibility. Times we could run out and play in the rain. Times we dreamt of growing older fast so we would be “big boys and girls.”

The golden age. We had no worries. We had no problems. Food was always available as at when due. We had shows like Cadbury breakfast to look forward to on Saturday mornings. Care Bear was one of the top cartoons around. We may not have had it all, but we had enough. Childhood memories are nostalgic. And they leave a smile on your face when you think about them.

Now, we have grown, and if we had known, we wouldn’t have grown up so fast. Now, we face the hustle and bustle of the city everyday. These days, we move about to earn a living. There are now a ton of responsibilities to handle. Bills to pay. And there’s always traffic. lol

But today, you can capture the feeling of being a child once more, because it’s Children’s Day, and if you can remember all these things, then you’ve come a long way! Childhood is golden. Cherish it. And teach your kids also to cherish it. Subsequently, it’s all gone before you know it.

Now, we can no longer do a lot of these things, but, we can take a moment today to appreciate the beauty of childhood, and the fact that 20 years on from now, we would miss these times too. But till then…

Simply log on to www.vtpass.com now, pay your bills, and celebrate your childhood for the rest of the day
