Apple iPhone 13

On Tuesday, Apple launched its range of iPhone 13 smartphones. While many people had waited in great anticipation, when the phones finally dropped, a lot of mixed reactions followed in its wake.

There were those who can’t wait for the good people of UK to quickly get tired of theirs and send them down to Naija as second-hand UK-used.

There were people dropping tips on how to pay for the iPhone which is yet to be available as at the time of their tweeting:

Met Gala: Afrobeats to the world, who wore what?

The Met Gala took centre stage this week and it was mindblowing. Renowned for its display of pomp, it is usually attended by celebrities dressed by world-famous designers.

However, the highlight of the show this year for many Nigerians was when CKay’s song, Nwantiti was heard playing in the background at the event. And the artist was very grateful that his song has gone global.

Nigeria does not have a fashion show at par with the Met Gala but trust us, we will kuku still talk our own.

Kim Kardashian was at the event and her outfit was, let’s just say spectacular. So spectacular that Nigerians took it upon themselves to recreate her splendour. Here’s a glimpse of what she looked like with an additional splash of creativity by our people.

Nicki Minaj questions Covid -19 vaccination

Nicki Minaj came under fire after tweeting about how her cousin’s friend became impotent after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.

#BBNaija: Week 9

Nini and Saga

The reality TV show, Big Brother Naija is still serving us premium entertainment. This week, Big Brother assigned Saga a relatively simple task; asking him not to talk to Nini.

However, Nini is Saga’s love interest in the house and apparently, the task proved to be too much for Saga. He told her what Big Brother asked him to do and Nigerians dragged him for the amebo he is.
