The Nigerian social media space was in a frenzy yesterday, when news came out that Nigerian super star musician, Wizkid popularly known as Star Boy will be performing alongside other international acts, at the Opening ceremony of the World Cup in Russia which began today, 14th of June 2018.
Many Nigerians were excited about watching the opening ceremony and seeing their favorite music idol, however they were left disappointed. Star boy himself has taken to his social media pages to refute these rumours and has wished the Super Eagles good luck in the tournament.
Recall that Nigerians were also in a frenzy when it was rumoured that Nollywood actress Genevieve and Funke Akindele were slated to be in the latest installment of Marvel’s Avengers. This just shows how quickly rumours can spread on social media like wild fire.
In the first football match of the tournament, Russia and Saudi Arabia clashed, with Russia defeating Saudi Arabia 5-0. Clearly the world cup tournament will be a fierce one as nations will battle it out for the ultimate title of World champions.
