British prime minister, Boris Johnson has appointed 39-year-old Nigerian, Kemi Badenoch as the minister of children.
Born in Wimbledon by Nigerian parents, Badenoch spent part of her childhood in Lagos and left for UK at age 16, where she did her A levels in an FE college in London.
She was an engineering apprentice before she went ahead to study systems engineering at the University of Sussex. She is a member of the British Computer Society and also studied law at Birkbeck, University of London.
Badenoch was elected to parliament in 2017, having previously served for the conservatives in the London assembly.
At the parliament, Badenoch talked about her experiences of poverty in Nigeria, including living without electricity or functioning water supply.
She also narrated how she had to do her homework using candles.
In a tweet, she said her appointment is a huge privilege to make a positive difference.
“I’m humbled to have been appointed a junior minister at the DfE. A huge privilege to be able to serve and make a positive difference on a number of issues close to my heart.
I look forward to working with the ministerial team and everyone at @educationgovuk,” she tweeted.
– The rapper said that Nigerians support artists way better than the people of Mzansi do
– Well, his Mzansi fans were not having it and told Cass to go
Cassper Nyovest dug himself a deep hole when he told his followers that he would like to be Nigerian. If you ain’t proud of Mzansi, you can’t sit with us!
There is no denying that Cassper is one of the most successful and popular artists in Mzansi. Cass often sparks fires that he can’t handle, even though many have warned himagainst it.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Mzansi’s hip-hop star feels a tad unsupported by the people of Mzansi. Cass feels that Nigerians would probably give him more support.
Taking to social media, Cassper aired his views and expressed his desire to be Nigerian. This came after Zakes Bantwini and Cass had an open discussion over social media about the South African music industry.
Won’t even lie. I wish i was from Nigeria too. The love they have for thier own artists, the way they celebrate their culture, 90% local content on radio and Tv, there way they celebrate their music no matter where they are in the world, the unity within thier industry. A DREAM! https://twitter.com/onyesprills/status/1155499322219401216 …
Replying to @casspernyovest
I just wish you from Nigeria …..you are a good man and talented too ….always speaking the truth and being real… One love man
AKA Drags Cassper For Wishing He Was A Nigerian. It has become that time of the year once again where AKA and Cassper shade and drag one another.
Cassper recently proclaimed that he wishes he was Nigerian because of the unity he claims they have in music. The message wasn’t well received by many of his South African fans since it implied that even after so many #FillUps he wasn’t supported. Even AKA found the post highly uncool and released a string of posts dragging Cassper.
“Won’t even lie. I wish I was from Nigeria too. the love they have for their own artists, the way they celebrate their culture. 90% local content on radio and TV. The way their celebrate their own music no matter where they are in the world. The unity within their music – A dream,” wrote Mufasa.
AKA confronted his statement, “You wish you were what? Fuck outta here Bruh.” He went on to pay compliment to South Africa calling it a miracle. “Being a South African is a fuckin honour and privilege. Don’t let anyone ever tell you any other nonsense.”
Supa Mega further gave Mufasa a little advise on how it is not fitting to disown people you still wanna lead. “You cannot disown your own people and in the next breath want to lead them.”
When one fan responded to Bhova by saying the he is bitter because he lost the BET award to Burna Boy back in June – he said that he has nothing but love for Nigeria but doesn’t like losing to them.
“I wore a Nigerian flag on my own music video, Nigerians are our brothers and sisters. I love them, just don’t enjoy losing to them.”
Cassper on the side is trending with people sharing their views on his wish to be a Nigerian.
