The other week it was sorry tales of flooding homes and roads from our friends in Lekki and other parts of the Island. This week, it was the turn of our folks on the mainland to suffer the floods. Major victims of the heavy rains include Surulere, Ikeja and so on. See tweets and reactions.

  1. Governor Fayose

Gov Ayodele Fayose was all smiles as he attended his son’s convocation from the Covenant University Ota last week. Whether you like him or not, you must admit that in a nation where leaders send their children to better Universities abroad, his sending his son to a university in Nigeria is worth emulating. We wish his son and other graduates well.

  1. Football

Carl Ikeme, Nigerian and Wolvehampton football club goalkeeper, has refused to let the Leukemia get to him. He was all-smiles in his social media post, where he has decided to remain hopeful and grateful. We wish him a speedy recovery.

In other news Manchester United seems prepared to compete for the EPL title this season as they trounced their noisy neighbors, Man City 2 – 0 in a pre-season match. Goals by Lukaku and Rashford sealed the win for the reds.

On the other hand, Arsenal was completely dominated by Chelsea, as the Blues trounced them three goals to zero in their pre-season friendly. Goals were by Willian and Michy Batshuayi who scored a brace as the champions coasted to victory. As expected, the #WengerOut chants have already re-begun. Sorry gunners.

Sensational news about celebrities always spread like wild fire, and last week diminutive comedian – Kevin Hart, Pop/R&B artists – Usher and Rkelly were material for heavy discussion.
