How your favourite celebrities reacted to Nigeria's performance at the World Cup
After Nigeria's exit from the World Cup our celebrities have been reacting to the Super Eagles performance at the tournament.
This came with mixed feelings as some celebrities were of the opinion that the players performed very well and couldn't hold on to the game until the end, while others took the opportunity to reflect on the recent killings in the country.
Here are some reactions from celebrities across the country over the early exit of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
1. Don Jazzy
For Don Jazzy, he showered accolades on the Super Eagles for their performance at the tournament on his Instagram page but was quick to advise Nigerians to move on to more bothering issues in the country and get their PVCs to vote in good leaders in the forthcoming elections.
"Father lord once again you have shown us not to trust the predictions of pigs, cats, and even octopuses. Our players played really well and I am proud of them still. Our country has been through a lot in recent times . But we must persevere and look to the future. We are the future and it’s in our hands. My people let’s go get our PVC’s to secure the future we all deserve. ," he wrote
Unlike Don Jazzy who went all out to address other issues while appreciating the Super Eagles, Davido didn't say so much even though he was one of the celebrities who supported the Eagles all through the tournament. He took to his Twitter page where he tweeted about his impression about the Super Eagles outing after their sad defeat to Argentina.
"We played well...Nigeria for life!" he tweeted.
3. Paul Okoye
Paul Okoye, however, posted a very interesting message on his Instagram page just before the match where he appealed to Nigerians not let the World Cup distract us rather citizens should be able to face the leaders of Nigeria and let them know that they have failed us.
"I know we can’t wait for the game ..... but pls Nigerians, let us use this opportunity to tell our leaders that they have failed us ... they don’t value human beings anymore and pls don’t be distracted, if by the grace of God Nigeria wins .... pls congratulate the players and pour out your mind and speak out at the same time .... it’s about time we let the whole world know that, as we celebrate we are also mourning God help us all," he wrote.
