Madagascan fans celebrated after their team qualified for the second round at the Africa Cup of Nations

Excitement has been building in the Indian
Ocean island nation as the team emerged top of group B after beating
three-time tournament winners Nigeria 2-0.
“Barea”, who take their nickname from a breed of local cattle, now play DR Congo on Sunday for a place in the semi-final.
“After hearing the demands of supporters,
President Andry Rajoelina and the Madagascan state have decided to
mobilise an Airbus 380, with 480 seats, to transport supporters,” Rinah
Rakotomanga, communications chief for the presidency, told AFP.
The flight will leave Antananarivo on Saturday and return immediately after the game.
But the adventure will not be for free —
tickets cost about $600 (530 euros) including the flight, a seat at the
match and meals.
Rajoelina had announced that he would attend the match, sparking a campaign to enable other fans to travel.
“Do not go alone to Egypt President Andry
Rajoelina, there are supporters who are ready to fill a plane and the
empty stadium,” said former opposition MP Guy Rivo Randrianarisoa on
social media.
Madagascar will face a tough game at the
weekend — they are ranked 108th in the world, with DR Congo far above
them in 49th spot.
“Barea’s participation is historic,” said Jean
Josue Njakasolo, 38, as he lined up to buy his ticket at an Air
Madagascar ticket office.
The price “does not mean anything compared to the honour that our national team gives us,” he said.

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

Published

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
