“Social media is a drug” | Simi berates herd mentality by Nigerian social media users

Singer, Simi has taken to Twitter to berate social media users who are consumed with trivialising socio-political issues in the name of ‘bants’.

The newly married singer called out those who have become so used to focusing on less important issues when bigger problems continue to eat at the heart of the nation. Although she did not mention names, her rant is not unconnected to the insults that were rained on Banky W after he spoke on the sack of the CJN, Walter Onnoghen.

The moment Naomi Osaka won the Australian Open 2019

US Open winner Naomi Osaka beat Petra Kvitova to win the Australian Open 2019.

Osaka took the game in three sets of 7-6(7-2), 5-7, 6-4, missing three championship sets in the second set.

Osaka was characteristically tongue tied at the trophy presentation, revealing that she forgot all that she planned to say.

Erm, hello. Sorry, public speaking isn’t my strong point so I hope I can get through this.

I read notes before this but I still forgot what I was meant to say. Thank you everyone, I am really honoured to have played in this final.

This was 2-time Wimbledon champion Kvitova’s bid for a major title since she was stabbed in a knife attack, and she said she was fortunate to be alive.

Osaka will replace Simona Halep at the top of the WTA rankings to become the first Asian player to be the world number...
