Burna Boy’s Meeting With Wike, Seyi Shay’s Mudding And 8 Other Events Of The Weekend

1. The past weekend begun on a quite sad and sorrowful mood as Nigerians woke to the news of 7 vehicles razed by fire AGAIN on Otedola Bridge. The bridge located along Lagos-Ibadan expressway is very peculiar for fatal and ghastly accidents happening frequently and as 7 more vehicles beginning with two tankers, two trailers, and a car got razed, Nigerians think these incidences are no longer ordinary but tied to something very spiritual.Fire Razes 7 Vehicles On Otedola Bridge2. A few days after Bella Shmurda was spotted with starboy Wizkid in a studio, the Cash App crooner set tongues wagging again as he shared a video of him hailing Wizzy. Apparently, Wizkid had given him some dollar bills following their meeting and Bella Shmurda couldn’t keep calm, causing the FC to raze thunder on people who say their fave is stingy. They didn’t stop there, they also dragged Davido in the mess, as they do always with their comparisons.Wizkid and Bella Shmurda KOKO TV Nigeria
3. Sad news of insecurity struck Northern Nigeria again and this time, the notorious bandits kidnapped 8 members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG in Kaduna.

KOKO’s 6th original edition Weekly Magazine was an Ode to the African Giant, Burna Boy himself. The Odogwu, who won the Global Music Album category of the most respected Grammys was described as Nigeria’s best and most controversial artiste since Fela. Do you agree or not? Take a time out with the magazine and give your take.
6. Speaking of Burna Boy, the Odogwu went through some series of dragging from Nigerians as he visited his hometown, Port Harcourt and was received amongs pomp and pageantry. Rivers State Nyesom Wike’s Government had organised an Homecoming Concert for the Grammy award winner on Saturday in celebration of his win. This exactly was not the bone of contention but the Governor’s promise of 10 million naira to Burna Boy and the artistes that performed at the concert, plus a landed property for the Odogwu. Tweeps wasted no time in digging out a tweet where the African Giant slammed the Governor, and this, added salt upon the injury of the matter on ground.

7. The weekend saw not just only shadings, draggings and evil occurrences but some lovely moments and happenings. Highlife singer Harrison Tare Okiri popularly known as Harrysong led his beau, Alexer Perez Gopa to the altar in Warri, Delta State. Back in February, the  Afrobeats singer officially announced he would be getting married on the 27th of March and when the day came, the whole of Nigeria could not help but celebrate the latest couple. The duo had though welcomed a male, Perez, and female Tare twins on the 22nd of June, 2017.8. Meanwhile, Seyi Shay too got dragged in the mud on Sunday as she carried out her duty as one of the judges on music talent hunt show Nigerian Idol. The Right Now singer had told a 17-year-old boy that he can never make it as a singer and Nigerians think she is too harsh and depressing. While some try to compare her bluntness to Simon Cowells, many others claim she is not even in the right position to say such. Seyi Shay, however, has a reply to all her trolls.9. Following the release of his official visuals for Montero (Call Me By Your Name), Lil Nas X is taking yet another ‘hellish’ move as he launced Satan’s Shoes. The American singer and rapper, and art collective MSCHF launched the controversial pair of modified Nike sneakers featuring a bronze pentagram, an inverted cross and a drop of real human blood. The black and red sneakers were made using Nike Air Max 97s. The sportswear brand, however, distanced itself from the design. In a statement sent via mail to CNN, Nike said it was not involved in creating the modified sneakers and does not have a relationship with Lil Nas or MSCHF. Jesus, save the one you died for!

10. On a final note, Nigerian actor Uche Maduagwu seems to be tired of the gay drama and he has come out to seek help, saying he is depressed. This didn’t go down well for him and must have only taken him further in depression, if true, as Nigerians mocked and trolled him for his revelation. His very own colleague, Anita Joseph and her husband MC Fish joined hands to add to his depressed state. Uche Maduagwu wouldn’t let himself be soiled and he gave a comeback against the actress and the battle seems to be a season film.
