“The things a woman will do and be called Olosho, men will do it and be hailed” Simi responds to critics of her previous post

Simi has responded to those who criticized her for writing that "many of our parents raised their girls and let the boys raise themselves." The singer had taken to Instagram to point out the difference in how boys and girls are raised, while asking parents to do better in raising their sons. People responded, asking her why there are many wayward women if girls were indeed raised better. The singer responded, pointing out that the same things women do that earn them the wayward tag, boys do it and they are hailed. She added that the only time men say women have it easier is when they point out that women get favours for being beautiful.  She then asked if it isn't sad that women aren't rewarded for their brilliance but because of how they look.

Spanx founder advises single women on what to look out for in a man based on her dating experience when she was single

American businesswoman, Sara Blakely has advised single women on what to look out for in a man based on her dating experience when she was single. The 50-year-old founder of Spanx said she spent almost 2 decades of her life dating all the wrong guys, so no one knows what it's like better than she does. She added that she always longed to be married but also knew she didn't want to be reliant on a man and wanted to stand on her own two feet before she got married. Hence, she stopped dating all the wrong guys and chose to wait for the man who wasn't intimidated by her succes, rather celebrated it. She added that when she met her husband and got married at 37, he liked all the parts of her, especially her independence. She was already a successful businesswoman at the time. ...

Tyson Fury says he might not fight Anthony Joshua next after Deontay Wilder fight; names six possible heavyweight challengers

WBC Heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury has revealed that he might not fight Anthony Joshua immediately after fighting Deontay Wilder later this month. The ‘Gypsy King’ will face Deontay Wilder for a third time on July 24,  and fans are hoping to see him meet Anthony Joshua soon after but Fury says the fight might not be easily put back together after negotiations fell through in May following Wilder’s arbitration victory. Joshua’s team have spent the past month negotiating with Oleksandr Usyk and that fight is now planned for September 25. Fury says he might not fight Joshua this year because there is a two-month difference between his fight and Joshua's fight, and he intends to fight twice this year.

Benzema and Ronaldo were former teammates at Real Madrid. Both players were seen chatting on the way to the tunnel at half-time before somewhat prematurely swapping shirts.

England top group as Sterling header sees off Czechs

Raheem Sterling was England's Wembley match-winner once again as his early header earned a 1-0 victory over Czech Republic, sealing top spot in Group D and setting up a last-16 tie next Tuesday with the runners-up of the pool containing France, Germany, Portugal and Hungary. Local lad Sterling (12) made the difference against Croatia in England's opening match of Euro 2020 and he doubled his tally for the tournament with a close-range header from Jack Grealish's excellent cross, after earlier hitting the post inside two minutes. England were without Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell, who had been forced to isolate after Scotland's Billy Gilmour tested positive for coronavirus, but played with an attacking freedom in the first half which had been missing from their first two group game...

Ten-man Wales Beaten by Italy but into last 16

Ten-man Wales sealed second spot in Group A and a place in the last 16 of Euro 2020, despite losing 1-0 to a much-changed Italy in Rome. Ethan Ampadu's straight red card on 55 minutes had sparked fears Switzerland - who beat Turkey 3-1 - could come up with the goal difference swing they needed to send Wales into the uncertainty of a third-place qualifying spot. But Rob Page's side battled hard in the heat of the Italian capital to set up a knockout clash with the runners-up of Group B in Amsterdam at 5pm next Saturday. Bernardeschi hit the woodwork with a free-kick just after half-time as Roberto Mancini's team showed their strength in depth, although Gareth Bale should have claimed a famous draw for his side when he wastefully volleyed over late on.

Switzerland beat Turkey but made to wait on last-16 place

Switzerland missed out on a top-two finish in Euro 2020 Group A on goal difference despite a 3-1 victory over Turkey in Baku on Sunday. Vladimir Petkovic's side knew nothing but a win would be good enough if they wanted to qualify for the last 16 with a second-placed finish in the group, and the Swiss were sent on their way by first-half goals from Haris Seferovic (6) and Xherdan Shaqiri (26). With Italy leading 10-man Wales 1-0 in Rome, confidence would have been high in the Switzerland camp on reeling in Rob Page's side, but Irfan Kahveci's stunning strike (62) was a huge blow to the Swiss' last-16 chances. Shaqiri (68) did restore his side's two-goal advantage but there were to be no more goals in Baku, while Wales held on for a 1-0 defeat to secure their passage to the kno...

Euro 2020: Mourinho predicts outcome of England vs Scotland clash

Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has said England will defeat Scotland in their Euro 2020 group game on Friday.

Why Memphis Depay Failed at Man United – Rio Ferdinand

  Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has said that Netherlands forward, Memphis Depay, failed to make an impact during his time at the Red Devils because of ‘numerous’ factors, including ‘timing’ and a lack of maturity. Depay arrived at Old Trafford in the summer of 2015 on the back of a sensational season with PSV and hopes were high of him to restore pride to a stagnant Man United side. But the 27-year-old, who cost Man United £25 million, struggled for consistency under Louis van Gaal. Also, Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Man United failed to make a difference for Depay’s career at the club and in January 2017, the player was sold to Lyon.

Ronaldo netted a brace, as the defending champions beat Hungary 3-0 in their first Euro 2020 game on Tuesday. Yet while he may be nearing the all-time record goalscoring tally at international level, Fernandes feels his contribution to the group as a whole is what takes precedence. Discussing his captain, Fernandes told reporters: “Ronaldo is influential, as always. He is another one who wants to do his best and is making a difference.” Before adding: “The most valuable player in the national team is the ‘we’. The ‘we’ is the most important, there are many Is, but the ‘us’ is what counts.”

‘Brazil’s tallest woman’ married to man who stands at 5ft 4 reveals what it’s like being one of the tallest women in the world

An aspiring model believed to be "one of the world's tallest women" has opened up about her condition. Elisane Silva, 26,  started to notice she was much taller than her classmates and even her family at the age of 10. At that time, she was already 5ft 9in despite being a child. Now, she stands at 6ft 8in. Her mum Ana Maria Ramos is just 5ft 4in and her dad Luiz Jorge is 5ft 7in so they didn't think it was down to genes. Elisane's height was due to a benign tumour on her pituitary gland which caused giantism and an overproduction of the growth hormone. Elisane, from Brazil, had no idea about the tumour until 2010 when she had tests on live TV as her family couldn't pay for it. Now she's known unofficially as "Brazil's tallest woman" In 2015, the model married Francin...

Joe Willock signed off from his Newcastle loan in style with his seventh goal in as many games the opener in their 2-0 victory at relegated Fulham. Willock, who will be sought after by the Magpies this summer after his sensational run of form since joining from Arsenal in January, settled a game of poor quality at Craven Cottage when firing a loose ball into the far corner after his own mazy run had been stopped. His individual quality was the kind Fulham were crying out for, and when Willock himself provided them a chance to level with an awful backpass, Fabio Carvalho fed Ivan Cavaleiro but the Portuguese winger fired over when clean through. Their victory was sealed late on by Fabian Schar, who netted from the spot after Matt Ritchie had been fouled to lift Newcastle above ...

Rooney Goal Secures St Johnstone Cup Double

Shaun Rooney was again the hero as St Johnstone beat Hibernian 1-0 in the Scottish Cup final to secure an extraordinary cup double. The 24-year-old wing-back scored the only goal in the Scottish League Cup final win over Livingston at Hampden Park in February and made the difference against Hibs at the national stadium to confirm the greatest season in the Perth club’s history. Rooney’s header after 31 minutes proved to be crucial, with Hibs keeper Matt Macey’s penalty save from Glenn Middleton with 15 minutes remaining ultimately rendered academic. St Johnstone, founded in 1884, won the Scottish Cup for the first time in 2014 – their first major honour – and now have won two in the last three months.

Everton's hopes of qualifying for Europe hang by a thread after 17-year-old Daniel Jebbison sealed Sheffield United's 1-0 win at Goodison Park with his first Premier League goal on his first top-flight start. The Canadian-born forward became the competition's youngest goalscorer on their full debut, and it is doubtful whether he will find the net with an easier chance against a static home defence. Earlier this season, Jebbison was on loan at Vanarama National League North side Chorley and only got his first taste of first-team football with the Blades as a 65th-minute substitute last weekend.

Everything Piers has ever accused Meghan Markle of - being whiny, wanting fame, granting interviews, playing the victim, complaining, and shunning the upper lip encouraged by the Royal family - he pointed out that Prince Philip was all that and more as he paid tribute to him. Sharing newspaper photos announcing Prince Philip's death, Piers Morgan wrote: "He hated celebrity culture, shunned fame, distrusted the media & barely gave any interviews - but as the extraordinary coverage of his de...

Nigeria Spent N120b on Petrol Subsidy Monthly – NNPC GMD, Mele Kyari

General Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kyari has hinted on Premium Motor Spirit also known as Petrol selling between N211 and N234 per litre.

Spain to Launch Trial of Four-day Working Week with no Pay Reduction

Spain is set to become the first country to experiment with a 32-hour workweek, which would allow workers to spend less time at the office without any change in pay. With 8 hours of work put in per work day (9 - 5), this means 4 work days per week, rather than the standard 5 work days per week. The test run was proposed by Más País, a left-wing party that has argued that longer hours don’t necessarily lead to higher productivity. Más País is now in talks with the government to figure out the exact details of the arrangement. According to Spanish media outlets, the pilot program is intended to reduce employers’ risk by having the government make up the difference in salary when workers switch to a four-day schedule. "Spain will be the first country to undertake a trial of...

Of course I was not happy, I told the players that, but sometimes it happens and we were more combative in the second half. The important thing is that we are through. We ...
