Word on the Street: Davido Vs Ayo Jaguda, Simi apologises to her fans and more
Hello friends, no fun facts today, just some stories you may have missed yesterday. Read on.
“Don’t come to Africa”
Those were Davido’s words, kind of, when he banned Ayo Jaguda from entering Africa. You see, Davido released the visuals of his song titled Wonder Woman during the past weekend and in 24 hours, the video had garnered over 1 million views on YouTube.
According to popular music blogger Ayo Jaguda, Davido’s Wonder Woman is trash and he must have bought the YouTube views.
Davido was so infuriated by Ayo’s comments that he threatened to deal with him if he comes to Africa. Imagine being banned from an entire continent. Wild!
Social media has been taken over by the gist and memes are flying around. Just type Ayo Jaguda or Davido on Twitter search and enjoy. You’re welcome.
Re: ASUU strike
For about the fifth time since the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike began on November 4, the union met with government delegates yesterday to discuss calling of the strike.
It’s been five weeks that academic activities in federal and state universities across Nigeria and the government and ASUU have not been able to reach an agreement.
ASUU wants improved funding of universities and implementation of past agreements but the government isn’t meeting with their terms. In the government’s defence, Labour Minister Chris Ngige named low government revenue as the reason why the government hasn’t been able to provide funds for universities.
I know, I’m shocked too. Did he say no money? Still shocked. After all said and done at the meeting, the parties could not reach an agreement, so the ASUU strike continues.
Dear Nigerian public university undergrads, I’m so sorry you have to deal with this. Kindly maximise this time by doing something valuable with you time. Thank you.
Simi is sorry…
On Sunday the Nigerian singer hosted Live in Lagos concert. Many fans who attended the show complained on social media how they were delayed for hours. Some of them could not even stay to end because the concert started many hours after the scheduled time.
Yesterday, Simi took to social media to apologise to her fans for keeping them waiting. According to the singer, the hall was used for another event the previous day and so there was not enough time to straighten out some technicalities. Watch the apology video here.
Oya please oo, Simi said she’s sorry, please forgive her.
That will be all for today. Have a wonderful Tuesday
