Team Nigeria sets a new record at the Commonwealth games.

Since its inception in 1930, the international quadrennial games have been held amongst athletes representing members of The Commonwealth of Nations. Her 2022 edition was the 22nd, with 1942 and 1946 editions being exceptions, due to World War II. Like previous years, the 2022 friendly games, as it is fondly called, is a multi-sport event featuring both Olympics and Paralympics events. About 72 nations participate in the games despite only 54 countries making up The commonwealth of Nations. Participating nations…

To Silence!

You should keep quiet! Most likely, this is coming across as strange and insulting to you, but it is the best advice I have for you at this point. We currently live in a world grossly polluted by different noises—from factories, bars, relaxation centres, and even our headphones and air-pods. According to a study recently conducted by the World Health Organization, nearly 50% of people aged 12-35 years old are currently exposed to unsafe levels of sound, especially from the…

Top Four Predictions for Europe’s Elite Leagues

Football is back! To be more specific, European football is back! I honestly can’t believe it’s been two months since Vini Jr. slotted the ball past Allison to win Real Madrid their 14th UEFA Champions League title. Within that period, we’ve had UEFA European Nations League Group Stage matches, AFCON qualifiers, the African Women Cup of Nations, and as of the time this article is being written, pre-season qualifiers. However, let’s be honest; nothing can touch the euphoria of weekly…

Toners and Serums

I always find it funny when people and by people I mean we Nigerians find out ‘toner’ does not in any way mean what we all think it is. I mean we all hear the word ‘toner’ and our minds register bleaching, change of skin colour, toning from a darker complexion to a lighter complexion. I could bet a thousand boxes that you’re probably just finding out that toners simply mean hydration in the skincare world. Scientifically, a toner is…

Ronaldo? No!

10 years ago, it would have been unthinkable for a player of Ronaldo’s stature to be unable to find a club willing to take him regardless of his advancing age but that is the case today. Superstar players seem to have lost their value in the game and more and more clubs are turning away from them. This summer, Ronaldo has tried to leave Manchester United due to their lack of Champions League football and with the help of his…

Be Kind

You woke up early this morning and looked at your alarm clock glowing in the dark. It’s 5:30 am. You don’t want to get up, but you have to. Why? You ask yourself. It’s expected of you. You get up and try to put on the light. Of course, there isn’t any light. You struggle to go through the motions, and then you’re out the door. You’re tired and angry. You don’t want to have this day. As you go…
