New Mo Salah Statue Not Impressing Fans on Social Media

Published

on

Here’s something juicy from the sporting world and it’s brought to you courtesy of Anttention Fresh News. Now this is the question on everyone’s mind, Is the Liverpool star’s statue even worse than the ones of Ronaldo and Maradona?
The Liverpool and Egypt striker’s trademark celebration has been captured in a bronze bust that was unveiled in his homeland at the weekend.
Created by Egyptian sculptor Mai Abdel Allah, the Salah statue was revealed at the World Youth Forum, in Sharm el-Sheikh, Anttention Media Fresh reports.
Speaking of her inspiration for the statue, Abdel Allah told al-Masry al-Youm newspaper (via the Egypt Independent) that she was inspired by the Liverpool forward’s open-arm celebrations after scoring goals. She added,
“I found it is distinguished and executable”
The sculptor also explained that Salah stands as a symbol of excellence in life for his country’s youth.
The statue has since been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous sculpture by Emanuel Santos, it was criticised as not resembling the Portuguese ace.
Social media has been rife with reaction to the statue, with some even suggesting that Salah looked more like the 1970s musicians Leo Sayer and Art Garfunkel, the character Marv Merchants from the Home Alone movies, and cartoon characters Beavis and Butt-Head.
Here we take a look at Twitter’s funniest reactions to the statue.

The sculptor has since responded to criticism of the statue saying,
“When I started the statue, I did not think it would be for the youth forum or for the exhibition. I started it on the Facebook page and I explained the steps and steps to define who has the talent and the desire to learn sculpture”
“The important thing is that the statue came out in the end, as you can see. I am not angry and I do not feel remorse, because I have done what can be done, not shorter, and negative comments will not frustrate me”
She added,
“I hope that people will learn the art of criticising politely and respectfully, because some may not be critical. I am thankful for God and I bear the criticism”

Nigeria: Delta State Polytechnic STUDENTS RAISE ALARM OVER MANAGEMENT EXTORTION

Published

Story by Ikechukwu Chuks Celestine

Students of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-uku have raised alarm over a recent memo raised by the management of the institution, saying the payable is too much and outrightly uncalled for considering the current economy situation in the country. The memo contains some amount payable as part of requirements for clearance process before meeting up the one-year mandatory national youth service corp(for those in Higher National Diploma).

Speaking collectively with pressmen, the affected students that comprise both ND and HND finals, said paying a whooping thirty-four thousand (N34,000) for clearance in this present economic situation is way too much and costly, adding that the inclusion of endowment/eligibility fee of N10,000(which we don’t even know what it means)is totally unacceptable and unheard of. They also showed their dissatisfactions on the recent increase in collection of original certificate fee and statement of result which the management put at N12,000 and N5000 respectively so as to fulfill the requirements for collection of their certificate and also the increment of convocation fee from 3,500 to 6,000.

The essence of the management demanding for payment for the certificate when it is very glaring that the said certificate won’t be ready for the students at that particular time of the clearance is still yet to be ascertained. This also coincide with the recent payment of 3000 cash by new intakes as part of their screening fee after paying acceptance fee and some students were eventually screened out. This is not to talk of the fine for late payment of School fees of 10,000 and so many others. They, however, appeal to the State Governor, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa and every good people in the state, to quickly come to their aid and review the fees in a bid to make them more affordable for both the graduate and all the entire students of the school….

The Traditional African Man and Romance

Published

on

Romance in marriage is like the gentle breeze that fans the embers of a camplight fire bringing tiny sparks of flames here and there. The west has provided it’s version of romance and this wave has swept across other parts of the world and of course in Africa. 

We see a handful of Millenials and the Gen Z’ers play out romance sequences that could have been straight out of a Mills and Boons story BUT… If we are totally honest with ourselves, these do not represent the whole rather they are a very small cross-section making us ask the question “How do the rest express themselves”. We grew up in Africa seeing our parents play out a script on romance that was lack-lustre and bland. This was picked up by many and it has become their default mode when the camera’s aren’t flicking, friends aren’t watching or it’s not for social media.

Below is an excerpt i stumbled upon and had to include it into my post because it perfectly explained the default state of romance in Africa.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Many marriages are just for sleeping and waking up, raising kids and ageing together till death comes. This is not right. Marriage must be enjoyable and romantic.
1.Many couples hardly kiss and they only hug each other when they receive good news.
2. The husband only puts food in his wife’s mouth only when she is terminally ill and cant feed herself.
3. If you see a man opening car door for his wife means the door is faulty.
4. The only thing that makes an african man touch his wife’s neck is when she complains of fever. He wont touch it again till the next fever.
5.The only time he can carry his wife on his arms is when she is in labour.
6. If you see them seated outside at night, dont think they are romantic. They are only waiting for the smell of insecticide to vanish.
7.Many wives buy gifts for their husbands only when they are hospitalized.
8.The only time they race together is when there is danger and everyone is running.
9.The only time they go for evening stroll is when they want to go and lay a complain to the parents of the person that beat their child or got their daughter pregnant.
10. The only time they bath together is when both are late for work.
11. The only time a wife looks closely to her husband’s eyes is when he complains of dirt in his eyes.
Unfortunately, Africans feel that any romantic man is being controlled by his wife. They will begin to spread bad rumours. Let us just change today for the better. Let us learn to love one another and enjoy the few days we have on earth together.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
On a closing note, i believe things would play out better for couples if men could become a bit more humane, women, drop a bit of the ultra-feminism and let’s enjoy ourselves as couples (ie married couples).
