Today’s Noisemakers: Ali Baba, Davido, Abayomi Shogunle, others

Every day on the Nigerian internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social matters, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.

Here’s our list from today:

1. Davido

Well, we already know we would something from him on Twitter. He calls this one the ‘hat-trick’.

This is after he won the Best African Act at the 2017 MOBO Awards.

Let’s not forget reactions to Wizkid’s win – Best Internationa Act – beating a couple of big names.

When Nigeria does well, I cannot help but feel well. My happiness is tied to the happiness of Nigeria and when Nigerians…

The truth… “ONCE YOU FAIL TO EMPOWER YOUR POPULACE, THEY ARE BOUND TO USE THAT STATE OF IGNORANCE AND LACK OF EMPOWERMENT to survive anyhow they can.”

Why did they leave? Dont answer. I will help you. They left because Osahon who made it abroad, in less that 2 years, has gotten a job (albeit illegal) that allows him live well, while arranging his permanent stay. If he who does not have formal education, has become a nurse in 3yrs and he is earning more than a banker. Uche don marry one foreign passport. Bola who was a hair dresser here, now works in a hairsaloon and sends money home. Not to mention Monday, an ordinary boy at a car wash in Lugbe, Abuja, who made it across and now works at the back of a restaurant and lives better than he used to here in Nigeria. Much as we should discourage these Nigerians from travelling, if we want to be honest with ourselves, the lure is too tempting. Don't forget that those who traveled will lie through their teeth to I justify why they left. Then you have the matter of prostitution and organised crime. The people who survive on these illicit businesses, will continue to require fresh hands. The 16 year old girl that was fetching the idiot 50 euros every other night, from wear and tear, may not provide the same amount of cash haul after a year. So, they will need new call girls. People are shouting slavery! Slavery!!. Is this new? Nooop. ONCE YOU FAIL TO EMPOWER YOUR POPULACE, THEY ARE BOUND TO USE THAT STATE OF IGNORANCE AND LACK OF EMPOWERMENT to survive anyhow they can. Illegal or otherwise. Ok so we bring them back from Libya. So What? We will manufacture jobs before the chartered flight lands? Or would we have done anything to engage those who had not made the trip just still could? What do I know Sef? Shebi I am just a comedian?
