Nigerian-born reporter, Adeola Fayehun has been hailed as part of a new generation of African journalists holding leaders to account, following her tongue-lashing questions for Zimbabwe’s president, Robert Mugabe during the inauguration ceremony of Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari’s on 29 May.
The Sahara Reporters journalist ambush of ageing Zimbabwean president has catapulted the queen of Nigerian satire, already a star in many countries in Africa, into the international spotlight.
The video clip of Fayehun and her colleague Omoyele Sowore questioning Mugabe as he makes his way during President Buhari swearing-in has so far received more than 270,000 views on YouTube.
Sowore initially disarms Mugabe by asking: “Mr Mugabe, how are you?”
Smiling uncomfortably, he replies: “I am well, thanks”.
“Well, you know they also want elections in your country, when is it happening next in your country?” Sowore asks.
“In my country? Well, we had our elections…” He tapers off as an aide comes to his rescue.
After Buhari’s speech, as Mugabe made his way back to the car, Fayehun delivers the next barrage of questions.
“Mr President, don’t you think it is time to step down?” “Is there a time limit?” “How’s your health?’ “When will there be change in Zimbabwe?” “Is there democracy in Zimbabwe?”
She ends the clip looking for her next victim, asking: “Is [South African president] Jacob Zuma here?”
After the incident, The Telegraph’s chief political correspondent Colin Freeman wrote: “compared the BBC’s John Simpson or CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Adeola Fayehun from Nigeria is not exactly a global name in the world of television reporting. This week, though, she made broadcasting history as she did something that few African reporters have ever dared do: ask one of their ageing dictators when the hell he is going to quit.”

For the first time ever, Juventus is about to seal a treble. It will be a dream come true for Allegri’s men, who have worked hard this season. They’ve stamped their dominance on the Serie A. This term, they won the Scudetto and Coppa Italia.
The Bianconeri had a rough start to the UCL in the group stage, but made it through by ten points behind Atletico. The italian team are surprise finalists and the knockout stage showed what they were made of.
Dortmund tasted italian steel when they faced Juve and were dispatched 5-1 on aggregate. Monaco was a tough one in the quarterfinals, but Vidal’s penalty in the first leg was enough, as they went through 1-0 on aggregate. Current UCL holders encountered the Old Lady in the semis and Ronaldo could not save them, as Tevez and former Madrid player, Morata sent them packing on a 3-2 aggregate.
Now Juventus are missing the backbone of their defence, Chiellini and will face Barcelona with a possibly shaky defence.
Juventus 2-0 Malmö
Atlético 1-0 Juventus
Olympiacos 1-0 Juventus

Chris Brown tried to hook up with Karrueche last night and the result was disastrous. According to TMZ, Chris was BANGING on KT’s front door after she kicked him out of her SUV.
We’re told the drama started INSIDE Playhouse nightclub … when Chris got the V.I.P. table next to the one Karrueche was at.

Our sources say one of Karrueche’s neighbors called cops because of the noise Chris was making at her door .Tran ultimately left her home — and went to the famous Norm’s Diner. Brown showed up a short time later. Once inside, we’re told they began to argue and it escalated into a full-blown shouting match. Eventually, Karrueche left the restaurant and returned home — without Chris. Bottom line — don’t expect a reconciliation any time soon.

The latter reportedly refused.It was gathered that Seego ordered his boys to deal with Yellow by breaking a bottle on his head.

“The rivalry was later settled after Ambode won the election. A man, popularly called Seego, later came to the area for a social function. During the event, he sighted Yellow and asked him to bow to him. When the latter refused, he became angry and ordered his boys to deal with him.“Yellow was beaten and his clothes torn by Songa, who works forSeego.”
