In the race for traffic, some media outlets are creative and think outside the box and others have brain farts.
The news website NewsRoom belongs the latter. While we were basking in the euphoria of Banky W, this website decided to take the piss.
Media Room went with the headline 'Banky W, Adesua will experience broken marriage'- Pastor Adeboye". Really, guys, there is stooping low and it is downright shameful. This headline is shameful.
This website stretched the hell out of Pastor Adeboye's controversial sermon in which he criticised social media based marriages in April of 2017.

Sensationalism in place of facts and creativity is silently eroding the credibility of many online sites in Nigeria.
