If you believe Burna Boy deserves all the awards and he is the best African artist, why can't you pay 15k for his concert?
Do I smell plasticity? Have you been lying to yourself?

Father Mbaka was trending on Twitter
Father Ejike Mbaka is an Enugu-based Catholic priest and Spiritual Director at Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria.
On Monday, a video of the Reverend Father demanding "support" from Peter Obi -- Atiku Abubakar's running mate for the 2019 presidential elections -- was making rounds on social media. Watch the video below.
There's another video with Kano state's Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
Someone did a thread translating the entire conversation with from Igbo to English, read it here.
"In your capacity and what God has done for you as governor … God hates stinginess. What I am saying is not to please you, but what will save your life. Otherwise you and Atiku will fail"
Did Father Mbaka actually say this to Peter Obi?
(God also hates waste).
— Onye Nkuzi (@cchukudebelu) December 3, 2018
What Father Mbaka did to Peter Obi at the alter of God and in God's name was disgraceful and should be condemned by all well meaning Christians. If this was what Christ stood for, I don't want to be a part of it anymore.
— Ifeabunike Chukwudi (@Ifeabunike) December 3, 2018
Father Mbaka is a disgrace.
— Sandra Ezekwesili (@SEzekwesili) December 5, 2018
Man like peter obi
This video should tell you character of this man called Peter Obi, he refused to be blackmailed to make sweet promises like a Nigerian politician just because it’s election season. He refused to be exhorted. I Stan this man.
P.S I’m shocked by Father Mbaka’s actions. https://t.co/PkRqdQ9Pu7
— The Papi (@TheTawah_) December 3, 2018
Peter Obi stock just skyrocketed.
Such a principled man 😍
Heard so many good stories about him, only to confirm it with these videos.
Dear APC, carry ya Father Mbaka o Jere.
— PokerFace (@90Skills) December 4, 2018
Now I see why Peter Obi is nicknamed Okwute Igbo
He stood strong in what he believed in amidst insults from Father Mbaka, he was as solid as a rock on that stage
This is the vice president we need, not one that dances to any tune that is played#LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain
— Enugu First Lady (@EnuguFirstLady) December 3, 2018
You are calling out father mbaka for what he said about Peter Obi and Atiku, but you are supporting Bishop Oyedepo for what he said about Buhari being dead and replaced with Jubril. @jeffphilips1
— Onyebuchi (@onyebuchind) December 3, 2018
Why must ATIKU visit the adoration ministries Enugu on or before 31st for prophesy?
Must PETER OBI donate or build a structure ?
Father Mbaka stop it
— Ogochukwu ❤️ (@TheEmmalez) December 3, 2018
What kind of arrogance is Father Mbaka suffering from? He said @MBuhari should have come to Enugu to “thank the ministry that made him who he is”. His exact words! Oh Mbaka, I do not know if you have read Daniel 4:17. God, not your ministry, made Buhari who he is! #RenosDarts

Otedola with the money
For the past week, fans and colleagues of veteran Nollywood actor Victor Olaotan have been calling on well meaning Nigerians to crowdfund for the actor's medical bills. The actor was involved in a motor accident two years ago, losing the use of his legs. He has been bed ridden ever since.
This week, we heard that Femi Otedola, Nigerian businessman and oil magnate has decided to take care of the actor's hospital bills.
