SPORTS SPICE:BEST OUTFIT AT THE OLYMPICS 2016 GOES TO CAMEROON.

SPORTS SPICE:BEST OUTFIT AT THE OLYMPICS 2016 GOES TO CAMEROON.

From BCC,Essence online to Global Grind, media outlets are still buzzing about the outfit worn by the Cameroonian delegation to this year’s Olympic opening ceremony in Rio. Cameroon is blessed with so many tribes and there’s a traditional outfit for each tribe or region. The outfit the delegation wore is called Toghu and it’s from the North West region of Cameroon. My dad always used to  wear his toghu attire with so much pride. Apart from a pair of white socks and well polished black shoes that always attracted the sun rays, It consisted of a wrap skirt that was worn underneath the big black thick cotton ankle length gown embroidered(using mostly white,red,green and yellow threads) with gongs and other traditional symbols and overflowing sleeves. I’d watch my dad fold his sleeves and rest them on both shoulders , revealing his immaculate white singlet underneath. Then over his head and on his neck, he’d carefully place his traditional deep purple and white glass beaded neckless. Then the knitted colourful hat(Bamenda countri cap) would be placed nicely on his head. He’d then collect his the woven bag with the map of Cameroon on it and place across his left shoulder to his right hip, then the traditional ‘horn’ cup for palmwine drinking would be place nicely in the bag with some few Kola(cola nuts) Once the ritual of putting together the toghu outfit was complete, dad would seal everything with a lavish spray of his special perfume with a strong but soothing smell which always still lingered long after he had left. Standing in all his full toghu glory and holding his...
MEN WITH SWAG: DAVID GINOLA.

MEN WITH SWAG: DAVID GINOLA.

Most 49-year-old men drown in baggy suits and machete ties…not David Ginola. It an-all-black-everything for the French former football player during a nightout at the Chiltern Firehouse. The former Newcastle player was spotted wearing a black blazer over a black shirt and stone-washed black skinny jeans…yeah…skinny jeans. Loving the grey loafers. I can’t lie, I’ve been crushing on this man since ’95 and he just keeps getting better with age. The salt and pepper hair makes him even more sexy. Note to men: It would be nice for men to cut their coats according to their sizes(not more than their sizes) and show some shape. I’m sure women would love...
HAS JOSE MOURINHO SIGNED A PRE-CONTRACT DEAL WITH MANCHESTER UNITED?

HAS JOSE MOURINHO SIGNED A PRE-CONTRACT DEAL WITH MANCHESTER UNITED?

Is the much-hyped club (which finally discovered they’re not the ‘Special One’) seeking help from the ‘Special One’? If reports coming from Spain are to believed, then yes. Reports claim that Jose Mourinho has signed a pre-contract deal to become the next manager of Manchester United. it’s almost a done deal between United and the former Chelsea manager to replace Louis Van Gaal despite tremendous support for Ryan Giggs from former United managers and players to succeed as next manager. Spanish journalist Diego Torres claims that the pre-contract comes with a clause whereby “If United do not sign the final contract [with Mourinho] before 1 May, they must pay £5m; if by 1 June he’s still not signed, they shall pay another £10m,”  It is claimed the clause came about because seniour figures at Old Trafford, including Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Alex Ferguson, are not entirely convinced that Mourinho is the right man to succeed Van Gaal.   I personally think he is. The hype about his second coming to Chelsea really made him believe he was truly the ‘Special One’. He became too ginomous-headed with the way he dealt with his team members, especially the way he treated the former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro and the childish comment about Samuel Eto’s age. Though he secured his 3rd Premier League title with Chelsea, he created some enemies within the team. This and other reasons led to his sack which I’m sure was a huge blow to his ego. He hasn’t worked since his dismissal last December.I feel going back into the game after he’s had enough time to gorge...
SAMUEL ETO’O PLAYS HOST TO PETER OKOYE OF PSQUARE.

SAMUEL ETO’O PLAYS HOST TO PETER OKOYE OF PSQUARE.

Eto’o Fils who plays for Antalyaspor, takes a break from scoring as he plays host to Peter Okoye of PSquare in the beautiful city of Antalya. Both African superstars took to their Instagram pages this morning to share with their thousands of followers pictures of how fabulous their lives are them having breakfast. Peter also made it known in his caption that he’s on a football business trip. It seems the Nigerian musician is going to be adding football management to his already growing resumé....
YAYA TOURE’S WIFE GETS INSULTED BY AN ONLINE GAMBLING COMPANY.

YAYA TOURE’S WIFE GETS INSULTED BY AN ONLINE GAMBLING COMPANY.

Another day,another wagering company comes for an innocent footballer’s partner. An online casino has come under fire for seemingly insulting  Manchester City’s Yaya Toure’s wife of 12 years Gineba. After taking a beautiful picture at a charity event, Fruity King thought it was funny and appropriate to post the picture on their twitter page with a very rude caption “Sure she’s bubbly but someone needs to remind Yaya Toure he’s on £220,000-a-week. Start abusing this privilege.” This is not the first time something like this is happening. Just over 8 months ago, Frankie Barwell, a Manchester Metropolitan University student and girlfriend of Manchester United footballer James Wilson, received similar insult from an Australian betting site. This is what happens when ogres grab hold of free laptops and free internet access. It’s really sad to see how society has messed up our perceptions. Skinny does not equate beauty. These are beautiful curvaceous ladies who have been picked on because they’re not size -2 models. Shame on the people behind...
BALOTELLI’S FIANCÉE CHEERS HIM IN A GHANAIAN ‘KENTE’ SKIRT.

BALOTELLI’S FIANCÉE CHEERS HIM IN A GHANAIAN ‘KENTE’ SKIRT.

I’ve not had the time to watch the Confederations Cup taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil but I must say I found time yesterday to watch our neighbour, Nigeria, ‘murder’ tiny Tahiti in a bitter-sweet 6-1 defeat. Oh well…I guess the Tahitians can only grow from this. Anyway, Italy played Mexico on Sunday and Balotelli’s Belgian fiancée, Fanny Negeusha, could not be missed in the crowd cheering her fiancé in a bright yellow top and kente skirt, representing Ghana, Balotelli’s country of origin. Did she wear it on purpose? We don’t know but we love...
