We Found The Perfect Nigerian Scenarios For Anthony Joshua To Prostrate At.

January 20, 2020

Two-time heavyweight champion – Anthony Joshua has one of those faces/bodies/all-round existence that’s so blindingly good looking you almost can’t stare at him directly.

And if that isn’t good enough, he apparently knows how to win elderly Nigerian hearts over by showing the one thing they can almost kill over, but most times are undeserving of ⁠— respect.

Here he is, prostrating before the president and he posse of aides in London where he also presented his championship belts to the president for an appraisal? Appreciation? Who knows man.

The president is currently in London for the UK Africa summit and the meet with Anthony Joshua happened at a diaspora event for Nigerians.

Anyway, seeing as Tony (I call him Tony) is showing his respects, we found other very important Nigerian scenarios that honestly deserve a good ‘dobale‘ or seven. Here’s our list:

Respect for Ganduje’s money-saving skills.

Because it takes special skills to stuff that many dollars into such a little babaringa.

A dobale for Sanwo-Olu’s abilities in pointing things out.

Believe it or not, it actually takes some special skill to do point that much and achieve so little (based on his campaign promises).

We owe some respect to the quickest dispensation of justice in Nigeria.

Everyone remember a petition was filed against the former CJN Walter Onnoghen? It was received by the government, investigated and charges were filed against said CJN within 7 days of its receipt. Let’s give respect to whom it is due.

Some respect for the swaggiest first day at work.

This picture just called me a broke boy.

You ever seen a hospital at the beach?

Put some respek on Fayose’s name. Man just discovered a revolutionary way to spend a ‘medical trip’ abroad. Just do it at the beach instead.

Where else should Tony pay his respects?
