Dear Omarosa, Be Honest, Are You Really Nigerian?

An open letter to Omarosa on behalf of Nigerians everywhere.

Dear Omarosa, they said you're Nigerian but we don't believe you. Omarosa, I'm sure you've heard the phrase, “Naija no dey carry last," but somehow you managed to carry last on The Apprentice, not once, not twice, but three times. In the Yoruba language, that's what we call an “Olodo." Olodo literally translates to “one who owns zeroes." It is clear that you own Zero wins my sister, you also own all of the Ls as our African American brethren would say.


Dear Omarosa, many of us Africans living in the diaspora don't believe in witchcraft, juju or voodoo, we like to consider ourselves “enlightened." How foolish of us, we must now question everything we learned at Harvard, because, clearly you're acting under evil spirits, you are under demonic oppression, something is wrong and you need deliverance. I know an auntie that slipped through the immigration ban with some strong holy water, please email me so that we can help you.

Dear Omarosa, on your website, you listed that you are an Ambassador and Mentor, who dash you Ambassadorship and to what nation? And you must be mentoring people like Meek Mills given how many zeroes and L's he continues to take. From a particular angle, you guys kind of resemble one another too, but that's another day.

Dear Omarosa, what is this rubbish?

Dear Omarosa, be honest, what did you do to Michael Clarke Duncan? Be honest, this is a safe space.

Dear Omarosa, we need to see your birth certificate and passport, because we know you can't be Nigerian. Which village are you from? Who are your people? Who are your people?!!!

Dear Omarosa, we're tired of you like those 419 email scams, at least those emails gave us hope, they promised us something no matter how implausible, but you, you give us no hope. You're like, Trump, a genital rash that simply won't go away.

Dear Omarosa, stop plagiarizing your nationality, just gerrara here man.

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
