Published

on

The Super Eagles have suffered another major injury blow ahead of next month’s AFCON after Paul Onuachu copped an injury that could rule him out of action for the next four weeks.

The 27 -year old Nigerian suffered a hamstring injury during Genk’s 1-1 draw with Royal Antwerp in Belgium on Sunday.

He joins the likes of Watford midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo, who will not feature at the AFCON just as officials hope Osimhen will be fully recovered to be part of the tournament in Cameroon.

Onuachu, who is widely regarded as a cover for Victor Osimhen, was forced out of Sunday’s clash in the 70th minute. Ike Ugbo replaced him.

Genk has not put an exact timeframe on his return but Onuachu has been ruled out for up to four weeks, with the Nations Cup set to kick off in 19 days’ time.

“He suffered a muscle tear. I already had the feeling that I had to replace him, but he said he could continue.” Genk manager, Bernd Storck, told Belgian newspaper, Sporza.

“And then he suffered a hamstring injury during a spurt. He will not be able to play for the next three, four weeks.”

The striker had opened the scoring for Genk in the first half before the injury.

He has netted 12 goals in the league this season after he scored 35 goals in all competitions in the last campaign.

Christy O, the recently evicted BBNaija season seven housemate, says Phyna is likely to win the show because “she has so much energy”.

The entrepreneur was evicted from the ‘Level Up’ edition on Sunday alongside Cyph — after two weeks on the show.

In an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the host, the 23-year-old reflected on her stint on the show and plans for the future.

Asked who she thinks will win this year’s edition of the show, she said: “I don’t know about the other house, but talking from mine while on the show, I’m rooting for Phyna. She has a lot of energy.”

On her eviction, Christy O said she was still trying to find her feet on the show when she was sent packing from the house.

“It was more of the whole lockdown thing. My body started reacting to water and I was like oh my God, I’ll be on national TV and because I’m light-skinned, it’s very easy to see my body clearly,” she said.

“Even though Big Brother took care of that, it wasn’t the way I wanted my skin to be…so the first week, I was out there but not really out there.”

The entrepreneur also spoke on her budding friendship with PharmSavi, fellow housemate, and why she cannot date him.

Christy O described the 27-year-old pharmacist, born Saviour Akpa, as a “confused person” who doesn’t know what he wants, adding that he is not straightforward.

“I think PharmSavi has intentions for me but he is not one of those straightforward guys. I kept saying he’s confused because this minute he’s like I want slim lady, then the minute, he will say something else,” she said.

“I wouldn’t have agreed if he made his intentions known because he’s not straightforward. I like straightforward and intentional guys.”

Nigerian music star Kizz Daniel has apologised to Tanzanian music fans for failing to show up at a Summer Amplified Show.

Str8up Vibes organised the event.

The organisers of the Summer Amplified Show in Tanzania arrested the Buga hitmaker for failing to perform at the well-publicised show on Sunday night.

The singer’s absence angered fans who came to see him perform, causing them to thrash the show’s venue.

In an interview session with radio personality Daddy Freeze, the show promoter Steven Uwa said that Kizz Daniel opted out of the show because the airline he flew with did not bring all his baggage.

The show promoter revealed that Kizz Daniel was booked for $60,000.

He also revealed that he spent nothing less than $300,000 on the show because it was a premium event.

He also lamented the flimsy reason the singer gave after he failed to perform and explained why he got him arrested.

Apologies

Addressing a press conference in Tanzania, Kizz Daniel said he had agreed with Str8up Vibes that the show must go on.

“We agreed to put up a show on Friday. A free show. So, I will be partnering with Str8up Vibes.

Also, I must apologise to the fans. None of this was intentional. I love my job. Mainly, I love performing.

“I didn’t mean to disrespect the fans. It was never intentional. I wanted to perform. I came to Tanzania to perform, but due to some circumstances way over my power, we couldn’t make that happen.

“I apologise once again to the people of Tanzania, and I hope you guys give me another chance to give you a show, to give you a proper show, a beautiful show,” the ‘Buga’ crooner said.

He then stayed in Nairobi for eight hours and got a connecting flight at 8:30 p.m.

Upon arriving in Dar es Salaam, he said he discovered that some of his belongings had been forgotten.

“The organisers assured me we’d get other equipment. We arrived at the hotel at 9 p.m. and sent my band to the hall to practice.

“Unfortunately, the band failed because the fans had already entered the venue.

“I tried contacting the designers here to get clothes. When I decided to leave the venue, I was told it was unsafe already. The fans got angry”.

“We agreed with the organisers that we will apologise to the fans and organise another show.

“On the second day, news spread and the police followed me to the hotel, not to arrest me but to question me about what happened,” he said.
