Wedding of the year 2017 and beyond!
#BAAD2017 was the best thing that happened to our weekend and that explains why we’re still talking about it tonight.
Banky W and Adesua Etomi got married in the most star-studded wedding we’ve witnessed in recent years. Don’t be fooled though, when we say witness, we mean Instagram. The photo-sharing app was aflurry with #BAAD2017 activities all evening long, confirming how much the couple are loved among fans.
Meanwhile, this groomsman stole the show
Without hassle, with no effort at all, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu managed to be the most talked about person at #BAAD2017.
In case you spent Sunday evening under a rock, here’s how:
Ebuka wore the best agbada we’ve seen all our lives. We’re not exaggerating, see for yourselves:
And Mugabe won’t resign…
Zimbabwean dictator, Robert Mugabe was given a noon deadline to resign as Head of State by the ruling party, ZANU-PF. But typical Bob, he called the party’s bluff and now faces impeachment.
In a Sunday evening speech, Mugabe insisted on holding on to his 37-year-old position and has been accused of swapping speeches as the plan was for him to address the nation with a resignation speech.
Now in other Zimbabwean news, here’s something we found on Twitter:
Zimbabwe’s 10 Universities will have to find chancellors when Mugabe goes, because he is currently the chancellor of ALL 10 of them 🚶🏽🚶🏽

Federal Government, how far?
After days of maintaining an awkward silence over the death of 26 Nigerian girls who drowned in the Mediterranean Sea while crossing to Italy, here’s how your Federal Government deems it fit to react to the state burial they were given by the Italian government:
“Why were they (the bodies) hurriedly buried nine days before the date communicated to the DG, NAPTIP by the Italian Embassy without any information to Nigerian Government? Why the rush to bury the bodies without carrying out a post-mortem to determine the causes of death?”
How low can you go, FG?
What Nigerians are saying about former Vice President, Alex Ekwueme
The former VP passed on late last night in a London clinic at the age of 85 and here’s how Twitter reacts:
3 things I remember about Alex Ekwueme:
1.Even Buhari's regime could find no evidence that he was corrupt. In fact they found that he was poorer.
2.He was a team player. He never threw his toys out of the pram when he didn't get his way at PDP conventions.
3.He loved education

People like Alex Ekwueme made us know that it is possible to be a Nigerian politician and not steal from public treasury. #RIPAlexEkwueme
