“All I Wanted Was An Apology” – Lady Who Embarrassed Olamide In Germany For 20 Minutes Performance Speaks

Featured Image

In recent interview with Punch Metro, Germany based Nigerian Lady named Jacobs May who had an unpleasant confrontation with Olamide over 20 minutes performance at a show in Germany has demanded an apology from the rapper.

Jacobs fierce outburst and confrontation video went viral last week. In the video, she expressed her dissatisfaction over the short timing of Olamide’s performance.

Watch Video Below;

Read her interview with Punch Metro below;

What do you do?

My name is Jacobs May. I am a Germany-based Nigerian entertainer. I am a dancer and I own a dancing school which focuses on African contemporary dance. As a Nigerian in the Diaspora, I try to use my dance to promote the Nigerian heritage.

What led to the fight in the video?

I really did not want to talk further about the Olamide issue, but I saw a video on YouTube and this made me realise some Nigerians still have no clue or an in-depth understanding of what exactly happened in the video.

The organisers approached me, six weeks to the show, asking me to invest €6,000 in the show as Olamide will be in Germany to perform. I told them the notification was too short for me to invest that kind of money.

Three weeks to the show, they contacted me again, begging me to use my photograph to promote the show, which I accepted to do. I also posted the photo on my Facebook and Instagram pages and even told my followers and other people to get their own tickets.

So, were you at the event?

Yes, I was at the event. I bought a VIP ticket for €100, though I was not supposed to pay, considering the fact that I was used to advertise the show, but I did it to support them.

What happened between you and Olamide at the event?

Olamide and I didn’t have any confrontation at the show, but his attitude was so annoying that I had to confront him after the show. It wasn’t an Olamide show but he was the main artiste. Some other Nigerian artistes also featured in the show.

What did he do at the show?

I was told that Olamide arrived at the hotel where I also lodged on Saturday and he was scheduled to perform at 1:00am on Sunday. But to my amazement, Olamide came up at 3:30am, having kept people waiting for two hours.

By the time he came on stage, fans were furious. People were already drunk and they started flinging objects onto the stage. I was seated on the VIP section, which was mounted on the stage. I was part of the people who got hit by a bottle and I almost collapsed on stage. People, including me, got so angry after Olamide performed for only 20 minutes. People paid so much to watch your performance and you put up a shabby performance and for just 20 minutes.

So, what happened after the show?

Like I mentioned earlier, I lodged in the same hotel as Olamide. I got to know when he arrived on Saturday because I have been in the hotel since Friday.

Since we were in the same hotel, I walked up to him in the lobby at daybreak to explain what had happened to me as a result of him coming late on stage. I approached him as a civil person and told him what had happened to me. I also told him that it was unfair that he flew seven hours only for a 20-minute show. I confronted him with the fact that it was disrespectful of him to have come late and not to apologise to his fans and to also throw a 20-minute performance for fans that have waited over two hours for him.

I was dazed when he stood up and walked out on me.

What happened thereafter?

I was full of rage when he showed no concern, compassion or remorse. That was when I brought out my phone to record the whole incident. Perhaps if he was polite I would have accepted his apology and walked quietly to my room; but his attitude led to the fiasco.

Just like it is often said that pride goes before a fall, there was no way I would tolerate such an attitude.

Did you contact the organisers of the show?

Yes, I did.

What was their reaction to the video?

They did a video disclaiming my accusations and saying it was a wrong move.

What do you intend doing to them?

I am suing them. I will make sure no show is done here again if the security of the people cannot be guaranteed.

Did Olamide contact you after the video went viral?

No. In fact, I believe there is no need for that. His arrogance would not even let him do such.

The manager said you were only trying to get Olamide’s attention. Is it true?

That is not true, but I’m not surprised because I wouldn’t have expected less; that is so typical of Nigerians. I had no clue he was staying at the hotel before I lodged there.

Of course, what do you expect his manager to say? Sure, they will always make it sound bad for me, but I care less. I just said things the way they are and I am sure next time he wouldn’t try such and other artistes will also learn from this.

Guardiola Fined By FA For Yellow Ribbon Protest

Featured Image

Pep Guardiola has been hit with a £20,000 fine by the Football Association and has been warned on his conduct, for wearing a yellow ribbon in support of political prisoners in Catalonia.

The Spaniard accepted the charge on Monday, of wearing a political message, which is in breach of the association’s kit and advertising regulations.

Guardiola began wearing the ribbon as a show of solidarity for political prisoners, Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sanchez, who have been imprisoned since October as part of a crackdown on the illegal Catalonia Independence Referendum.

A brief statement issued by the FA read: “Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct after admitting an FA charge for wearing a political message, specifically a yellow ribbon, in breach of The FA’s kit and advertising regulations.”

FA chief executive Martin Glenn sparked controversy last weekend when, in response to this stance, he made remarks including a reference to the Star of David that the UK’s Jewish Leadership Council labelled “offensive” and “ill-judged”.

Speaking in response to Glenn’s comments, Guardiola again stated he had been misunderstood.

“Mr Glenn has apologised, so all is well, but the first impression when I heard that was he does not understand what the yellow ribbon means,” he said.

“He made comments that are far away from that. Maybe now he will realise it is not the same.

“It is not about independence or no independence. It is about people who are in jail when they didn’t do absolutely anything to be in jail.

“I think now he is going to understand… the comments were because he did not understand the reality. But now I am pretty sure he will.”

Klopp: Winning Is All That Matters

Featured Image

Jurgen Klopp says winning is all that matters, and does not care if he is accused of defending against United, as long as he wins.

Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford is more than a rivalry, with United holding a two-point lead over Liverpool, who are third on the table.

Mourinho was criticised for his tactics in the reverse fixture at Anfield, with that match ending goalless. But Klopp expects more when they clash at Old Trafford.

“I’ve no problem with defending – I know how the situation is, that teams play a specific type of football, but it’s all about winning and there are different ways to win football games,” he said at his pre-match press conference.

“In the last few years Manchester United have been more successful than us. We respect that, and this United team has a specific way of playing football.

“If we have to defend there, we have to do so with all we have. It’s not a battle of systems or philosophies – just two very good teams facing each other.

“When they attack, I hope all my players are involved. If people want to say that’s parking the bus, I’m okay with that.

“There are reasons they have two more points than us. We don’t want to show how good we are, we just want a good result.”

“You have to bring the right things on the pitch constantly. Counter-pressing against such a strong counter-attacking team is so important,” the German added.

“We have to play football against a very strong side. If they defend deep it won’t make our life easier, but I don’t think they will do that all the time.

“It’s not an attacking team against a defending team. They have massive quality and I respect that.

“It’s a good moment to go there, but it’s still unbelievably difficult. They have outstanding quality and are at home, they’re a very experienced team with a very experienced manager.”

Mourinho On Liverpool Match: It Is Just Another Match

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho says he does not read much into football rivalries, and sees Liverpool’s match as a regular game.

Manchester United host longtime rivals, Liverpool on Sunday, with two points separating the Reds from the Red Devils.

Mourinho has plied his trade as a manager in Portugal, Italy, Spain and England and is no stranger to derby matches, but he does not see why some matches should differ from others.

Asked whether he had a greater understanding of the United-Liverpool rivalry ahead of his fourth stab at the fixture, the Portuguese told reporters: “I still don’t know because in my mentality every match is the same and I’m not very good on that culture of this match is special, this rivalry is special.

“I never looked to AC Milan as the biggest rival, I never looked at Atletico Madrid as the enemy, I never looked at Arsenal as the big rival.

“For me it is just a big match with two historical clubs, not just in England – in the world. I still don’t look to some matches as a special opponent. It is a big match because we are speaking about some big clubs.

“We have three matches now – Liverpool, Sevilla and Brighton. If you ask me if I could choose one to be the most important, I can’t choose.

“The most important is Liverpool because it is the next but the other two are knockouts. I don’t think the fans are happy if I say Liverpool is the biggest match of the season and Sevilla is not a big match.

“Everyone wants to go to Wembley for the FA Cup semi-finals. Is Brighton less important than the Liverpool match?”

Mohamed Salah Keen To Score Past David De Gea This Weekend

Featured Image

Mohamed Salah has recently that he is eager to score against Manchester United this weekend to complete a clean sweep of goals against top-six opposition.

Mohamed Salah has been a revelation since arriving at Anfield from Roma last summer, scoring 31 goals in all competitions.

Salah has already managed to net against Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, but he was kept out by David de Gea in October’s reverse meeting with Man United.

Ahead of Saturday’s trip to Old Trafford, the 25-year-old admits that it will take a lot of effort to get the better of home keeper De Gea, who produced a memorable stop to keep out Joel Matip five months ago.

“I remember [the save]. I also missed an easy chance in that game, but he is great,” he told Sky Sports News. “Before the game you have to prepare yourself for the game, and you see the weakness of the players or the goalkeeper, and you have to try many times to break that and to score and to do something different.

“But we know we play against Manchester [United] and De Gea. He is a great goalkeeper and this is the only team I did not score against in the top six this season, so I will try.

“I try to look for a goal in any game I play. I thought already about that and I’m very excited to play in that game because this is the only team in the top six I didn’t score against. Only Manchester [United]!”

Arsene Wenger Believes Arsenal Fans Do Not Hate Him

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger has revealed that he does not take Arsenal fans criticism personally.

Arsene Wenger eased some of the pressure on himself after guiding the Gunners to a 2-0 win away to AC Milan in the Europa League on Thursday, but he faced a backlash over his team’s form in the run-up to the match.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Wenger said that he believes he is not hated by Gunners supporters on a personal level.

“Honestly I can take a distance with that. It’s not the person they hate, they hate the manager who doesn’t deliver the performance,” he said.

“I can make that difference. But I’m just unhappy that we lose the games. I want to win, win with style even, so it’s very ambitious.

“When we don’t do it of course I’m suffering like everyone else. Arsenal is 30 million people, it’s not the suffering of one person, you want to make 30 million people happy and that’s what you care about.”

Borussia Dortmund are bracing themselves with Paris Saint-Germain interested in signing Julian Weigl. The Ligue 1 champions-elect are in need of a new controlling midfielder with Thiago Motta set to leave at the end of the season. Their top target is N’Golo Kante but reports suggest Chelsea are reluctant to let their man go. Weigl, a former Manchester United target, has been handpicked by PSG’s sporting director Antero Henrique as the man to sign if Kante isn’t attainable. (SportBild)

Jupp Heynckes doesn’t want to stay on as manager at Bayern Munich, forcing the Bavarian club to restart their search for a permanent boss. Thomas Tuchel, formerly of Dortmund, is the man most likely to take over at the Allianz Arena. (Kicker)

Spain

Barcelona’s corporate director Pancho Schroder has admitted he and the club are unsure whether Lionel Messi’s release clause will be enough to ward off potential suitors. The Barca legend signed a new deal in November, tying himself to the Nou Camp until 2021, which included a €700m (£623m) release clause. (AS)

Lucas Hernandez has snubbed France and will represent Spain at international level.

(AS)

Barcelona are no longer interested in re-signing Hector Bellerin. The Arsenal full-back had been linked with a return to the Nou Camp but Nelson Semedo’s impressive form since joining the La Liga club in the summer means the 22-year-old Spaniard is no longer a target. (Mundo Deportivo)

Barcelona could loan out January signing Yerry Mina. The Colombian centre-back isn’t going to be a starter for Ernesto Valverde this season and if a club can guarantee him first-team football then a move wouldn’t be blocked. Palmeiras, Cruzeiro, Flamengo and Gremio are all interested in the 23-year-old. (AS)

The arrival of Philippe Coutinho has pushed him further down the pecking order at the Nou Camp. (Calciomercato)

PSG want Antonio Conte as their next coach. The French club believe the Chelsea manager can be the man to guide them to success in the Champions League and are prepared to back him in the transfer market.

The agent of Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto says the Czech Republic international “will definitely talk” to Arsenal when the window reopens. The 22-year-old has caught the eye in Serie A this season and was earlier linked with a move to AC Milan. (RMC Sport)

INEC Officials Accused Of Collecting N200 For PVC Registration

Featured Image

Some residents of Wushishi community in Wushishi Local Council of Niger State have accused electoral officers of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of extortion, saying they now collect N200 to capture them in the ongoing Permanent Voters Card (PVC) registration exercise.

According to The Guardian, the electoral officers in that area were collecting N200 from the residents to buy fuel to power the machine that would capture people during the exercise.

It was gathered that the people of Wushishi community were compelled to pay for the powering of the machine or they forfeit their registration.

One of the residents, Aliyu Garba, said that he paid for four people from his community so that they would not be disenfranchised.

“I am surprised that the electoral officials in our area are collecting N200 from residents before they could be captured which is against the electoral law. They told us when they started this registration that all the materials needed for it are intact,” he said, adding that “I’m beginning to fear for 2019 elections. Why are we stressing ourselves for this kind of thing.”

Another resident, Isah Ibrahim, stated that some of the electoral officers in Wushishi were not friendly and could not explain to the people why they should pay before being captured.

Ibrahim said:  “The INEC officials could not explain properly why they are collecting N200 and for that reason alone, most of us boycotted the registration exercise.”

Reacting to the accusations when contacted, the Niger State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Prof. Samuel Egwu, said: “I have never heard of it because it is not part of our process.

“We will not encourage this kind of matter to happen and if we find it to be true, we will bring the perpetrators to book. The right of citizens to register for their PVC can never be taken for granted.”

According to him, any electoral officer extorting money from people in the name of registration will be made to face the wrath of law.

UK To Build Prison Wing In Kirikiri, Lagos For Transferred Nigerian Prisoners

Featured Image

The government of the United Kingdom has announced plans to build a new wing at Kirikiri Prisons in Lagos so that it can transfer Nigerian prisoners serving jail term in British prisons.

It is understood that the new 112-bed wing, which will cost 700,000 pounds ($973,000) and will be compliant with United Nations standards, will make it easier for Britain to comply with a prisoner transfer agreement it signed with Nigeria in 2014.

While the British government is yet to speak on how many prisoners might be moved or when the project is likely to be completed, it is gathered that under that deal, eligible prisoners serving criminal sentences in Nigeria and Britain can be returned to complete their sentences in their respective countries.

Nigerian prisons — many of them built by British colonizers more than 100 years ago — are severely overcrowded, leading to the spread of diseases.

The Federal Government has said it is developing a strategy to tackle the issue.

Britain’s own prison system has been showing signs of severe strain in recent years, with overcrowding, rising suicide rates and a growing problem with drug trafficking and other crimes within jails that were sometimes built in the Victorian era.

Last month, the government said the prison in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, which was originally designed to hold 800 prisoners, currently has nearly 5,000. It said 3,700 of them had been awaiting trial for more than five years.

In a written statement to parliament, British Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, said tenders had been placed and a supplier identified to conduct the building work at Kirikiri. He did not name the supplier.

The project will be funded from Britain’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, which has an annual budget of more than 1 billion pounds and aims to commission projects that can help prevent conflicts and stabilize countries or regions.
