by | Nov 17, 2017

This week started on a high note for many Nigerians following the Super Eagles’s defeat over their Argentinian counterparts in an international friendly match.


Watch the clip below if you missed it.

Friendly match or not, the victory was widely celebrated by Nigerians and some of them took to social media to express their joy.


Some shades were thrown too

These made us laugh

While we celebrate one thing going right for Nigeria, here are other interesting topics on social media this week

Leading by example

This week, Lamborghini donated a one of a kind car to Pope Francis who plans to auction it and donate the proceeds to charity.

Nigerians react.

Many commended the Pope

Some threw shots at Nigerian pastors

What do you think of the Pope’s gesture?

Tributes to Chinua Achebe

Yesterday, Nigerians and indeed the entire world celebrated the 87th posthumous birthday of Chinua Achebe usually described as Africa’s greatest storyteller.

He was honoured by Google Doodle

What’s your favourite Chinua Achebe quote?

Chinua Achebe remains one of the world’s best modern writers and his legacy lives on.


Since last week, there has been a debate on “tithing” on social media led by Nigerian On Air Personality (OAP), Ifedayo Olarinde popularly known as Daddy Freeze. Using the #FreeTheSheeple hashtag, the OAP calls out Nigerian pastors using their congregations’ tithes to enrich themselves.

Some Nigerians agree with him

While some strongly disagree

He got replies from Nigerian pastors

Ulterior motives?

Who do you think tithes should be paid to? Read this thread.
