What's Up Africa: Nigerian Tina Turner??!!

What's Up Africa gives us cheeky news from Africa. In this episode, Ikenna takes on charlatan preachers, the Nigerian Tina Turner, and racism on the football pitch in Italy.

Ikenna's back for the new year with more cheekiness on What's Up Africa. In the latest episode, Ikenna calls out the slew of religious charlatans in Nigeria, who are paid a grip to tell folks to pray. Just a heads up, the kick at 3:49 will make any human, male or female, cringe - but apparently it's well-deserved retribution for racism on the football pitch. Ikenna also gives the Nigerian Tina Turner a run for her money with his own wiggy adaptation. All in all, we're happy that Ikenna is back! However, sheepishly we add that Rick Ross is definitely better known as Ricky Rozay, not "Rick Rozayy" as he's titled at the :37 mark. Anywho, Happy New Year!
