  1. That’s why I so much love oyibos. They take everything so serious.
    Imagine having a Santa Claus training school.
    They should please open a branch in Nigeria, so all those awkward looking ‘fada Krismas’ can learn and at least, pretend to do their jobs well.
    But then, there’s a difference between both.
    Theirs, is Santa Claus.
    Our own na Fada Krismas. Difference suppose dey.
    In other news, our Nig Sat I, how far?

  2. Pheewww! So many weddings in one day. Hehehehe.

    Nor be only “fada Christmas school” nor be for our Naija sha.lol.

    Ehen, happy birthday Google o. Whether it is 26th or 27th, you have been a lifesaver for 18 years now. Thank you o jare.

    That our NigCom Sat 1 failed sha, I just hope will be able to launch another soonest. Oh wait, lemme ask Google.lol.

    What? A whooping 5.5million of their population? However did they cope and prevent re-infection and new infections. Chai!

    Happy world tourism day ooo. Nigeria has so many beautiful potential tourism sites. I don’t think we have fully harnessed this as a federal source of income.

  3. Who the Nigerian satellite don epp since then?

    Khloe really loves this guy, despite the misbehaviors. I wish them a happy life together.

    Nigeria should invest in tourism. It will create jobs, revenue and put us on the map for positive things. Not ‘oyel oyel everytine’

    Big ups to Google. Providing information when you need it since 19kpiridim

  4. I love Tourism because of the various benefits that come with it.. It’s not like I have been on any tour anywhere in the world but I get to read and see how people gain big.. As a tourist you get to network when you meet people from different tribes and tongues, rural countries get their names in the lime light but meeeeen* I also seem not to like some aspects of tourism eg when a lot of Tourist lost their lives during the last Tsunami..
    Do we have Tourist attractions here in Nigeria? Yes, we do but do we really key into making our tourist attraction sites worthwhile? Let’s look at the Yankari Game Reserve in Bauchi.. When was the last time the place had a new look?Lets ,over on Jare to other things..
    Celebrities are remembered for marriage and divorce, kool.
    Would anyone want to set up a Santa Clause training school in Nigeria? I wish we don’t always have to copy the western world. Its awesome to know that with the Virus you can still have kids without passing on the virus to them.
    And congrats to google, seems like they have been around forever. Nigeria has launched its first satellite,Bravo!
    Hoping it will be for the good of all Nigerians.

  5. Halle Berry announces her separation from second husband. Fair enough. Just as you announced the wedding, it’s cool to announce the divorce/separation, so as to spare people the pain of asking questions.
    The never aging Halle Berry I believe you’ve found happiness ever since.

    Khloe and Lamar you both were so good together. What happened nah? I guess life happens. Because there are some things we cannot control. We know you still move Lamar, but babes you’ve got to live for something and move on. You’ve been going in circles far tòo long.

    Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds hope you both are still together, if not hope una announce the separation/divorce ? Ehen, George Clooney nko and Alam Alamuddin are you both still together? If not,do the needful shaperly.

    And the Santa Claus school hmmm……these guys have evolved long ago oh. So one shouldn’t be surprised at the school because they take everything they do so serious. Who would have thought about a school for Santa.

    A big thank you to Google for being a life saver anyday anytime.

    On Tourism its a pity Nigeria is not making use of this aspect to boost the ecojomy. Save for the calabar festival, I don’t see where Nigeria has invested in terms of tourism. No working structures/system in place to see that tourism thrives. In fact I dont want to have an headache talking about Nigeria’s woes. I’m tried truly.
