I Had Mixed Feelings Giving My Daughter Away In Marriage – Charly Boy

Featured Image

Veteran entertainer, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, who recently gave out one of his daughters in marriage has admitted that he had mixed thoughts on whether or not to allow his daughter depart him on marital ground.

In a recent chat with Sunday Scoop about how he felt on that day, he said;

“I had mixed feelings actually. I put in a lot of time in my daughter’s upbringing and we bonded so well.

As a parent, you could sometime wish that your offspring would stay with you forever, but at a point, you have to let go. I am happy that I’m letting go to someone who is a gentleman, considerate and thoughtful. I wish her a happy married life. She has a good pedigree, and both the bride and groom’s parents have good marriages that have stood the test for time; that ought to count for something.”

While describing the relationship he has with the daughter who got married, Adaeze, Charly Boy said;

“I have a very unique relationship with all my children. They are not all treated the same because each kid is special in their unique ways. I don’t have one way of dealing with everybody. There are different strokes for different folks.

I guess that’s the joy of parenting because not every kid would turn out the way you want him or her to. Some are late starters, while some are early birds.”

Meanwhile, prior to the wedding, a picture of Charly Boy and his daughter was released and it promptly went viral.

Speaking on the picture in which they both sat on a motorcycle, Charly Boy said;

“That picture was her idea. She asked me to do a photo shoot with her and the concept was centered around two people stranded on a desert.

All my children have a bit of me in all of them and that’s only natural. I didn’t intentionally make it that way by conditioning their minds towards anything. I always tell my children to stay true to whom they really are, chase their dreams and be independent. I also tell them not to neglect the values and principles that we hold sacred in the Oputa family. I do whatever I want to do, and not what anybody tells me to.

I expect that my children are going to be the same way. As long as it is a positive thing and it makes them happy, I would encourage them. I am their father and friend.”

Phil Jones Believes Manchester United Didn’t ‘Show Up’ For Defeat Vs Newcastle

Featured Image

Phil Jones has insisted that Manchester United “were not at the races” in Sunday’s shock 1-0 loss away at Newcastle United.

Manchester United were punished by Matt Ritchie’s only goal of the game 25 minutes from time, leaving them 16 points behind league leaders Manchester City.

United defender Jones, who returned to the side after being dropped against Huddersfield Town last time out, admits that the mood is low in the dressing room following a second defeat in three top-flight outings.

“We didn’t show up today, we started slow,” he told Sky Sports News. “They pressed us, the crowd were on their feet. We got control midway through the first half and should have scored but we weren’t at the races, we weren’t good enough, simple as.

“For whatever reason we weren’t good enough. Ultimately we have conceded a sloppy goal. The lads are devastated in the dressing room.”

Virgil van Dijk has revealed that he “enjoyed” his return to former club Southampton

Virgil Van Dijk , who swapped clubs last month in a record transfer for a defender, played the full 90 minutes of Liverpool’s victory over Southampton

“Unfortunately they’re not in a good position right now, but as a Liverpool player I was very happy with the win. I can’t do anything about the reception, I just did what I could.”

Rafa Benitez Hails His Newcastle Players After Incredible Win Vs Manchester United

Featured Image

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has heaped praise on his players for producing an “amazing effort” to beat Manchester United 1-0 in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

Newcastle stunned Manchester United at St James’ Park through Matt Ritchie’s goal 65 minutes, giving them a first home league victory since October.

Rafa Benitez was pleased with the performance of each of his players, and in particular goalkeeper Dubravka.

“He can buy the lottery and win today. He was composed and that gave confidence to the team,” he told Sky Sports News. “All the players worked hard, so it is not fair to say just the goalkeeper played well.

“We worked as hard as other games, but against a team like Manchester United every ball is important, they can punish you, so you work like them. Amazing effort.

“They are dangerous, but the teamwork we showed to fight for every ball was amazing. I am pleased for the players and the fans. Because we won here at home.

“We had games in past when conceded late. We got lucky with some shots, but we showed the character, the commitment and the desire today.”

Adnan Januzaj Believes Louis Van Gaal Murdered His Confidence At Manchester United

Featured Image

Adnan Januzaj has hit out at Louis van Gaal for failing to give him a chance and killing his confidence.

Adnan Januzaj has seen his career stutter since a memorable breakthrough at Old Trafford as a teenager under David Moyes, when regularly impressing from out wide.

Januzaj saw his number of appearances dwindle upon Van Gaal’s appointment in 2014, however, starting seven Premier League games before being shipped to Borussia Dortmund on loan.

Having failed to break back into United’s ranks in the subsequent years, and being loaned out for a second time to Sunderland in 2016-17, the Belgium international left for Real Sociedad last summer on a permanent deal.

“I didn’t have any chances, really,” he told The People of his time working under Van Gaal. “I wasn’t in the race [for places]. How can I say this; he [Van Gaal] wasn’t giving me the right signals to up my game. I was still only a young player. When you have a young player, a manager has to give them confidence.

“Let them play and grow up. Obviously, that didn’t happen under Van Gaal, so it was a very difficult season for me. Before that, David Moyes had trusted me from day one. He understood I was a young player, but when Van Gaal arrived, everything changed, my progression stopped.

“For a football player, the most important thing is to have a manager who gives you a lot of confidence. Then you go on the pitch and give everything for the manager, the team and the fans. On the pitch, I never think what people are saying. All that matters is to try and look after the ball and do your best. At the time, that was what I was doing. I wanted to show my qualities. But, mentally, it was very tough.

“As a young player, to take all of this and the criticism, it wasn’t easy at all. My life is good in Spain. Everything is going well for me. I am enjoying football and I would say La Liga is a league made for me. It is a very technical league and I am a technical player, so it suits me well.”

Jose Mourinho Gives Newcastle Credit After Losing To Them Again

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho has praised the attitude of Newcastle United after they defeated Manchester United in Sunday afternoon’s meeting.

Jose Mourinho, who has never won at St James’s Park as a manager, had his run extended as Matt Richie’s goal in the second half was the only difference between the sides.

The Portuguese manager admitted that Richie’s goal was a “mistake”, but also said that United never looked like scoring in the contest.

“We could be here 10 hours and we wouldn’t score a goal,” Mourinho told MUTV. “That’s the feeling. Anthony [Martial] in the first and in the second half Alexis [Sanchez] with an open goal. Then we have situations.

“The goal is a mistake. [From a] long-distance free kick, we lose the first ball in the air because we didn’t compete and then we lost the second ball. Newcastle fight. I loved the way Newcastle fought for 90 minutes and I loved the way my players fought for the last 25 minutes to change the result.”

“A lot of people have expressed their views about my dress sense on social media. Sometimes, I ‘humour’ them. You can express yourself on my page but don’t be rude or insulting. Some of the people, who make those comments, are just full of hate and they just go all around the Internet, looking for where to spread their hate. I am comfortable in my own skin and I just want to keep making good music and connect with my true fans.”

Good News! UK Export Agency Agrees To Accept Nigeria’s Naira For Trade Payments

Featured Image

The UK Export Finance Agency has disclosed that it would soon add Naira to its list of “pre-approved currencies” for trade transactions, a move that would further strengthen the Nigerian national currency against other world currencies.

Reuters reported that Naira would soon become one of three West African currencies that UK Export Finance agency has pre-approved for its programme of funding transactions to promote trade with Britain.

The news outlet however did not speak on the other two national currencies.

The good news is that when added, Nigerians and others in the UK wishing to use the Naira to make payments or provide financing for business transactions denominated in the local currency would be able to do so.

The only exception, the statement said, would be in the area of loans taken in local currency, which must equally be repaid in local currency.

“This is a clear indication of how much value the UK places on its relationship with Nigeria”, British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright said in a statement by the UK credit agency.

“It will provide a firm foundation for a significant increase in trade and investment between both countries”.

The statement said the UK would provide up to 85 per cent of funding for projects containing a minimum of 20 per cent British content.

“The Naira financing will follow the same structure as someone buying in sterling, except that Nigerian firms taking out a loan in local currency can benefit from a UK government-backed guarantee.

“This can enable businesses to manage foreign exchange risks and, many times, to negotiate better terms with local banks,” it added.

Bismark Rewane, head of Lagos-based consultancy Financial Derivatives expressed confidence that the financing deal with the UK would help local importers buy British goods.

“If I buy a Rover, the British government is now guaranteeing that I can pay in naira, so the foreign exchange risk has been shifted from me to the Nigerian government,” Rewane said.

“If the Central Bank of Nigeria is unable to remit funds to the UK, then the liability will be on Nigeria.”

Featured Image

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday declared Mansur Mashi of the All Progressive Congress (APC), as the winner of the supplementary election into the Mashi/Dutsi Federal constituency.

Prof Hudu Ayuba, the returning officer, said Mashi scored 30,719 votes against 22,690 votes scored by Malam Nazifi Yusuf of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

He said in the supplementary election held in six affected polling units in Dutsi local government, the APC scored 934 votes while PDP got 217 votes out of the 1,177 votes cast.

Similarly, in the nine polling units in Mashi local government area, the APC scored 16,332 against PDP’s 676 votes out of the 2,231 total votes cast.

Ayuba said these scores were added to the previous votes recorded by the political parties during the bye election conducted in May 2017 to arrive at the final result.

Ayuba announced that a total of 3,382 votes were cast during the Saturday election out of the 9,089 registered voters in the affected polling units.

He said the number of valid votes was 3,370 while 286 votes cast were rejected.

“Then we controlled the game and made the changes, thinking about the next game, but I’m happy.

“It makes things easy when you score in the first minute. It was the full first half in this way, intense, determined, motivated. It was a good way to prepare for Wednesday’s game.

“We have to correct certain things, especially in the second half, but I am left with the positive side, with the five goals and our start of the game. Wednesday will be another game and we will have to put in another effort.

Pep Guardiola Hails His Players After Emphatic Win Vs Leicester City

Featured Image

Pep Guardiola has talked up the importance of Manchester City’s 5-1 win over Leicester City

Manchester City dropped points for just the fourth time this season in the 1-1 draw at Turf Moor, having been punished for failing to make their dominance count.

Pep Guardiola had no complaints about the performance of his side in seeing off Leicester in style on Saturday evening, however, as they returned to winning ways in an emphatic manner on home soil through four Sergio Aguero goals and one for Raheem Sterling.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the match, the Catalan coach said: “Sergio has an amazing talent in the box, so we try to create a lot of chances to score the goals he does, and he always does. Congratulations to him because it’s not easy to score four goals.

“It was difficult to play them in the first half with them playing a 4-5-1, but in the second half we found more space with the wingers. In general it was a good performance against a good team.

“My advice for the players is not to think how many games are left, just to look to the next one. Every time we dropped points this season, the next game we won, which is so, so important. Keeping that consistency is so important for us. If we are able to win the title it will be something special for us.

“We have had a lot of injuries – Gabriel Jesus, David Silva, Benjamin Mendy – but hopefully we can fight for every game in all competitions. We can try and do absolutely everything. But we can drop points, lose games, but as long as we are who we are.”

Stoke City manager Paul Lambert has insisted that Charlie Adam had every right to step up and take the penalty late on in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Brighton

Charlie Adam saw his penalty effort from 12 yards kept out by opposition keeper Mathew Ryan in the final stages of the contest at the bet365 Stadium.

Adam had to see off protests from Jese Rodriguez before stepping up to take the spot kick, with the 24-year-old – who won the pen –
visibly upset at being overlooked at a pivotal point in the match.

Speaking after the contest, however, Lambert claimed that it would be wrong to blame individuals, despite the missed attempt ensuring that Stoke remain in the bottom three.

“When you get a penalty in last minute it’s a big opportunity to win the game. But the penalty’s a lottery, a hit or a miss,” he told Sky Sports News. “Nobody likes to see [players fighting over who takes a penalty]. Charlie scored the last one against Coventry and he felt confident he was going to score.

“I am a great believer that if you feel confident, step up and hit it. The lads are desperate to score and desperate to win and I think that is the big thing. But you do not want to see that probably in public, that is the thing I would go against.

“He did [want to take the penalty] and I will never curtail that in anybody if you have a great desire to score. I would rather have that than not and people shying away from it and that is one thing he never done. But the second half was very good.”

#BBNaija 2018 Day 13: Big Brother Will Have No More Foot-dragging In The House!

Featured Image

It appeares like the #bbnaija 2018 housemates do not understand the amount of seriousness biggie requires frim them and he is about to take drastic measures to ensure they do.

Going into the Big Brother House is by far one of the biggest achievements in the reality TV spheres far beyond the Nigerian boarders, which naturally will make anyone assume that any housemate that makes it into the #bbnaija house will naturally want to take full advantage of it, while also having n eye on the grand price.

However, this set of #bbnaija Housemates have been less than forthcoming in their approach of the game and that hasn’t gone unnoticed, even Biggie displayed utter dissatisfaction.

Furthermore, the #bbnaija Housemates are aware of the fact that every one of their moves are being closely scrutinised by a lot of people across Africa ,including critics that never forgive mistakes, and yet they’ve put absolutely no effort in trying to look good while racing for the coveted ₦ 25 million Naira cash price.

Despite the fact that the ladies don’t even bother powdering their noses and the men carelessly walk around barefoot and shirtless during the week, the lot of the #bbnaija 2018 housemates even appeared to have neglected themselves completely during their very first live show of the season.

Tge last time any sort of glamour was seen in the #bbnaija house asides the saturday night party was when they first walked into the Big Brother Naija House.

Moreover, if the winner was to be judged by the amount of failures made in the #bbnaija house, the game would already be won. From losing the wager twice to earning a strike and a couple of punishments, this lot of housemates seem not to ever learn.

Perhaps ticked off by the constant loses, Big brother went ahead to reprimand the Housemates for clapping and celebrating failure. Stating also that their failure to complete any task will result in dire consequences.

Asides the fact that they are never prepared and almost always losing, the #bbnaija housemates have also shown an absolute lack of rendition and trudging along with a lacadaisical attitude towards anything and everything related to games.

They also display no sense of urgency when participating in tasks and when responding to Biggie’s diary room summons. Big brother called them out on this and let them know that “everything must be done when due and on time.

More so, the #bbnaija Housemates according to Biggie keep talking about their lives outside the House and spend less time tightening their strategic bolts.

Instead of concentrating on the pairs and how to best curl their way into the game, they keep planning how ‘life will be’ after the game, sounding very eager to exit the House.

With Evictions drawing closer by the minute, the #bbnaija Housemates appear to clearly be on a wrong path and need to rid themeselves of the lackluster mentality.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 13: Alcohol And Late Night Confessions Make Things Steamy

Featured Image

After the #bbnaija housemates had had a couple of drinks, they soon began an altered version of truth or dare which they tagged late night confessions.

K.Brule was quite surprising as he has taken time to prove again and again that there is much to him than a sulking and bruised loverboy.

Meandering with a bottle in hand, he prompted the #bbnaija Housemates into daring to answer risqué questions about very intimate details or take a sip of water as a silent confession.

It was quite an unexpected eyeopener from the usually shy and timid K.Brule, who all but turned into a wily fox.

The high-spirited Ifu-Ennada, Princess and Khloe were the first #bbnaija Housemates to get into the charade. They were giggling all over the place, jumping from one bed to another while feigning shock at the crude questions that were thrown at them.

Soon enough, Ahneeka, Anto and Lolu were sucked into the game as they walked to their beds. However by the time they did, the stakes of the game had escalated into off-limits questions. Even Rico Swavey was smashed on all four as a hyper Bitto dashed in and out of what had become a mad room.

When K.Brule asked ‘Have You Ever Been Genuinely in Love’, the rapid succession of “I’ll drink to that” that poured into the room were the most revealing declarations of guilt.

Of course the #bbnaija housemates were only obviously trying to keep certain secrets by drinking to the question.

As the game became naughtier, Ifu-Ennada sneaked out to the kitchen to eat and cool off from the feverish, borderline vicious confessions game that was almost degenerating into full-blown debauchery.

Princess could be seen sleeping on the couch hugging a pillow in the living room, and across her was Vandora rolling on the sofa’s narrow space. Bitto on his part chose to sleep outside altogether on the hammock to shield himself from unsustainable female attention.

It seems the #bbnaija Housemates were not as tipsy or drunk as they appeared and it would not make sense to pin any of the raw truths they revealed on alcohol.
