Mumu Nigerian Footballer Sam Sodje Collected $75,000 To Intentionally get A Red Card In A Championship Match and Exposed himself without knowing .
34year old ex-Super Eagles star, Sam Sodje is currently been investigated in a match-fixing scandal in the UK. Sam, who is the younger brother of footballer Efe sodje, was allegedly caught on tape telling an undercover reporter with The Sun UK magazine that he was paid £70,000 to be sent off the field during a championship match on February 23rd 2013. Footage from the football match showed Sam Sodje hitting the crotch of Oldham Athletic’s player Jose Baxter, repeatedly for no reason which ultimately earned him a red card. Sam admitted to the undercover reporter that his actions were all preplanned for him to be sent off the pitch. He also said it was easy to get other footballers to do same for a fee. Sam practically ended his football career by collecting £12,000 from the undercover reporter, on tape, for other match fixings.
The British Tabloid has reported its investigation to the National Crime Agency, and NCA said an active investigation is now underway
I don’t know about you but I consider getting interviewed by the Queen of TV herself a big deal!
Flavour Nabania has claimed that he is still a vírgin. No doubt, Flavour is one of the Nigerian musicians that sing corrupt songs. Some of his weird lyrics are “Panti no na-iro”, “Ara dara ada adago”, “Ife bara aba abago” among others.
However, Flavour in his recent tweet claimed celibacy.

These soldiers dressed as GRANNIES and had their legs waxed and hands manicured for an undercover training mission.
Nobody raised an eyebrow as Riflemen Jordan Bryce and Chris Edwards mingled with shoppers unaware of their secret identities.
The deception was part of a training exercise designed to make the soldiers think on their feet.
They had to get from Birmingham to a rendezvous in London undetected by a rival Army unit without a penny to their name.
Bryce and Edwards, both 23 and serving with 4th battalion The Rifles, turned up in Birmingham in civvies.
But they needed something better to escape the eagle eyes of their ‘hunter force’ pursuers.
The pair, who are based at Bulford Camp, Wiltshire, headed for University College Birmingham and asked for help.
Theatrical and Media Make-Up students went to work until the riflemen were barely recognisable in wigs, glasses and a full face of make-up.
“It was quite remarkable,” an onlooker told the Birmingham Mail. “They came in looking like young lads on a weekend away.
“But they went out looking like little old ladies dressed for a night out at bingo. It was amazing.”
Professor Ray Linforth, Vice Chancellor and Principal, added: “We were delighted to help the two soldiers.
“University College Birmingham has a tremendous reputation for our work in theatrical and media make-up so our students weren’t daunted by the task of helping two burly soldiers adopt convincing disguises.”
The quick-thinking sharpshooters scored extra points by successfully completing a number of unconventional Army challenges – keeping in character to the extent of getting their legs waxed and having a manicure.
The last task on the list was to find somewhere to rest their heads.
No points were awarded for “sleeping rough” so the hunt was on to find a hotel willing to put the soldiers up for the night, free of charge.
The Ibis, just a stone’s throw from UCB, stepped into the fray.
Next morning the soldiers secured a lift to London courtesy of a college employee who was driving to the capital and successfully made their way to the meeting point.
Bryce and Edwards, whose battalion returned from a six-month tour of Helmand Province, Afghanistan in October, were one of several two-man teams dropped off across the West Midlands as part of the training exercise.
“The mission involved getting to a London rendezvous undetected by a rival Army unit following the completion of imaginative challenges,” said an Army aide.
“It was a serious operation designed to test the riflemen’s ability to think on their feet, problem-solve and communicate.
“These are all qualities their regiment strives to develop’

Nelson Mandela has stood as a figure of strength, hope, freedom, selflessness and love, and I join everyone across the world in mourning his passing. However, he was much more than just a figurehead to me – he was my mentor, my honorary grandfather, my Tata. Since meeting him in 1993, he’s guided me and gave me a reason for being in the tough times of my life. He changed my perception of the world.
It will take time to come to terms with his absence, but I know his energy and impact will forever be in the core of my spirit
My heart goes out to the entire Mandela family – Mama Graca, Mama Winnie, Zindzi, Malengani, Josina and the rest of the family
After hearing of Mandela’s passing, Kim Instagrammed a black and white photo of the former South African president and anti-apartheid revolutionary with the caption, “R.I.P. Nelson Mandela…may your principles of love be the guiding light for future generations.” She also shared this Insta on Twitter so the message went out to her almost 19 million followers.
We applaud Kim, who is one of today’s major pop culture icons, for acknowledging Mandela’s greatness and inspiration publicly. It is a wonderful way for some of her younger fans to garner interest and understanding into someone they may not know as much about, someone who is inarguably one of the greatest men who’s ever lived.
Kris Jenner Tweets Her Condolences On Nelson Mandela
A few hours after Kim’s tweet, her mom followed her lead, Instagramming the same photo as her daughter did, with an inspiring Mandela quote as the caption: “‘Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.’ – Nelson Mandela. #rip”
This is so meaningful as we have watched the Kardashians fall many times on KUWTK, so getting a reminder from them on the importance of “getting back up” via Mandela’s powerful and brilliant words is very moving.
R.I.P., Nelson Mandela. May we all take your example and strive to live with even half of the integrity that you did.
