Angry Nigerian man calls out Wizkid after he failed to fulfill his promise to 10-year-old Ahmed

- A Nigerian man has taken to social media to call out music star, Wizkid on a failed promise 
- According to the displeased man, the singer failed on his promise to sign a 10-year-old boy named Ahmed 
- This is coming after Wizkid during his concert in December 2017, promised the young boy N10m and a record deal 
Recall a while back, Nigerian music star, starboy Wizkid, surprised many when he revealed he was going to sign a previously unknown fan that thrilled guests at his homecoming concert that took place in December 2017. 
He also promised to take care of the 10-year-old boy who was later identified Ahmed while also stating that he will give him a whooping sum of N10m. Well, not so much has been heard about the promises or the young boy. 
A clearly displeased Nigerian man took to social media to call out the singer on what he claims is his failure towards helping young Ahmed. He also rained insults on the father of 3 and told him never to compare himself with the likes of Davido since…

Petition to ‘punish Sergio Ramos for intentionally hurting’ Salah passes 200,000 signatures

- A fan of Mohamed Salah, Mohamed Salah Abdel-Hakeem, has started a campaign on change.org 

- The petition is urging UEFA and FIFA to punish Sergio Ramos for his tackle on Salah 

- The petition has so far been signed by 200k + users 

A petition by user 'Mohamed Salah Abdel-Hakeem' on change.org for UEFA and FIFA to ‘punish Sergio Ramos for intentionally hurting Mohamed Salah' has passed 200,000 signatures. The Real Madrid captain, Ramos, was the subject of much vitriol during Saturday’s May 26, Champions League final as a tangle between him and Salah led to the Liverpool ace being forced off with injury after just half an hour. 
Ramos, 32, trapped Salah’s arm while the pair chased for the ball, and as the pair fell Salah’s arm remained pinned to Ramos’ body; Salah is reported to have dislocated his shoulder, and could even miss the World Cup.
As it stands, it has not been proven Ramos caused the injury on purpose - even if he has a history of bending the rules of the game - but…

INT’L FRIENDLY: WEMBLEY AGOG, AS NIGERIA BATTLE ENGLAND

Nigeria and England go toe-to-toe in what promises to be a thrilling Russia 2018 preparatory game for both teams at the Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday. England hosted and won the FIFA World Cup in 1966, but have only gone as far as the semi finals since then, when Bobby Robson steered a squad including Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne to the last four in Italy 28 years ago. Just like the Three Lions, the Eagles are dreaming of big things to come in Russia, despite both teams being ‘blessed’ differently with intricate opposition in the group stage. Nigeria must negotiate the obstacles offered by two-time world champions and reigning world vice champions Argentina, hard-as-nails eastern Europeans Croatia and an Iceland squad that stunned England and world football in the Round of 16 at the 2016 European Championship in France. England must sort matters out with strong African opponents Senegal, Japan and Panama. They have never won the FIFA World Cup, have never even managed to procee…

Russia 2018: We aren’t the best nor the favourites – Messi

Argentina captain Lionel Messi has urged his compatriots to be realistic in their World Cup expectations, warning that other teams heading to Russia are better. In an interview with Argentine Canal 13, Messi also discussed why he did not take the chance to play for Spain and said that Barcelona will be his only European club. “People need to know that we are not going to Russia as favourites but we have a group of very good players and we are ready to scrap,” Messi said. Asked if Argentina could win the World Cup, Messi swerved between hope and realism. “I believe so, I have faith in this team,” he said. “We have players with talent and experience. We cannot send the message that we are the best, because that’s not true.” “Quite a few squads are better,” he said singling out Brazil, Spain and Germany. Messi has won multiple Champions League and Club World Cup titles with Barca. But he “would swap any one of those titles with Barcelona” for a World Cup win. Messi moved to Barcelona at the age o…

Liverpool hope to stop record-chasing Madrid in Kiev

Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo Idris Adesina English Premier League giants Liverpool are on a mission to halt current European champions Real Madrid as they seek to make history in the UEFA Champions League. The final game of the European season today at the 70,000 capacity NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Kiev, Ukraine, offers a chance for both clubs to get the biggest prize in continental football after both teams failed to clinch any domestic title.

P.M.EXPRESS reports that Prophet Joshua not only healed her, he gave the family an undisclosed huge sum of money and she went home happily with the children. That had been the subject of discussion in the church as members who knew what had happened thanked God and praised Joshua for his compassion.
