  • MONKEY POST 2 years ago


    Is SHE not a NIGERIAN?

    Anyway shout out to all the WOMEN.

    They have been doing us PROUD in the COMMONWEALTH GAMES more than the MEN.


  • CS, you are late in your report.
    Adekuoroye has already won the Gold medal. She beat the Indian Malik to win Gold, the 6th Gold already won by Team Nigeria. I expect Oborodudu to win another Gold in her finals.
    Congrats to them and to team Nigeria.
