Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa revealed the only condition which can force him to retire from the Nigerian national team as fans continuously ask him to put an end to his international career.

The 30-year old striker is now the most-capped ever Nigerian player with 108 games with the Super Eagles jersey.

While many believes the time has now come for him to stop with the national team, Musa insists that he’ll continue playing as far as his body will allow him.

The Sivasspor striker aslo said the day Super Eagles coach will not call him again, he’ll say goodbye.

“I’m the one doing my job, but if my body wants me to stop, I’ll stop”, Musa said, as per Sportsbrief.

“I’m playing with my club and have a good contract, so why does anyone want me to resign from the national team?

“This is what I’m playing and know how to play. I give my best always when I’m called to the national team from day one and if the coach doesn’t call me anymore, then that’s fine.”

10 Reasons Why You Are Not Rich And How to Fix Them!


Have you ever wondered why you are not rich yet? You might have big ambitions or work at a well-paying job, yet nothing seems to grow. You wouldn’t be the first one to feel stumped about the money game. Many people assume that getting rich is easy, especially if you have a good career.

Here’s the harsh reality: income alone isn’t what makes you rich. Sure, getting five or six-figure salaries would benefit you greatly. However, people who become wealthy don’t always have the best-paying jobs. Some even become millionaires without relying on a lottery ticket or a Bitcoin trade. The truth is that there are multiple reasons why you are not rich. Here are ten of them and how they affect your money mindset.

What are the reasons that you’re not rich?

1. You try to keep up with the trends.

If you look online and check the latest fashion trends or tech purchases, do you feel like you should buy them too? A lot of people feel like they have to “keep up with the Joneses” by matching the newest fad in town. Years ago, people were clamoring for the chance to buy the first iPhone, even if they already have a serviceable flip phone. Nowadays, there are people desperate for the latest iPhone model, even if they got one last year. So, if you’re someone who tries to stay in the trend, you’re risking more cash than you need to.

2. You get advice from the wrong kind of people.

Imagine that you’re planning on getting married or you’re working out relationship problems with your partner. Suddenly, you get a visit from a friend whose gone through four divorces and multiple breakups. They try to give you words of wisdom about how to deal with your relationship. Are you going to listen? Of course not!

One reason why you are not rich is that you get financial advice from people who aren’t good with money. You might have friends who obsess about buying the first new ring they see or the latest Gucci shirt. You may speak to a relative who enjoys gambling more than saving. Sometimes, you’ll have to think twice about who you’re asking before you get their advice.

3. You’re afraid of being left out.

Similar to the trends issue, you might suffer from the fear of missing out (FOMO). This is when a person is so afraid of not being part of a trend or a movement that they join. For example, a lot of people feel insecure about their mobile phones because their friends all have iPhones and iPads. This also applies to business ventures, like those who invest in Bitcoin or NFTs because a billionaire did so. Remember that not all trends are timeless and if you focus more on others, you risk forgetting what matters to you first.

4. You’re financially out of sync with your partner.

Speaking of others, do you have a partner who doesn’t share your plans for the future? Some divorces and separations happen because a couple cannot agree on their financial goals. Imagine a working mom or a busy dad finding out that their spouse is spending all their money on new clothes or hobbies. It’s infuriating if you use your time building a sizable budget only for your partner to waste it all away.

In addition, some couples simply can’t align their visions. Someone might be more focused on paying bills or affording vacations while another wants to settle down and build a bigger home. You might not realize it, but separate money goals could be why you are not rich. If you and your partner keep disagreeing about your financial issues, it might be time to step away.

5. You keep falling for the “discount trap”.

Have you ever seen a discount promo and felt like you had to buy that product right away? You might hear that a new car is going at half price or a new phone is 30% off. Now, while there’s no issue in buying what you need, you should not always trust a discount.

For example, if a shirt costs $5000 but goes on a special sale for $3500, you might think it’s a steal. Well, it could be but you’d still be spending $3500 on a shirt. Sometimes, even though a discount sounds nice, it’s not necessary to your life. Is it worth getting a laptop at half price if your current one works fine? You might need to re-evaluate your priorities first.

6. You don’t have emergency funds.

In many of my videos and articles, I emphasize the importance of emergency funds. It might sound like a broken record by now, but there are a lot of people who don’t have this backup budget. What’s worse is that some of them even think it’s okay. They might scoff at the chances of a car accident or a hospital visit or a house fire. Unfortunately, that mentality breaks down when something unexpected does happen.

Now, while I’m not saying that those emergencies will happen, I still think it pays better to be careful. No one knows what will happen tomorrow. Very few people ever foresaw COVID as a problem, let alone as the pandemic that it became. With so much uncertainty about the future, you must take the right steps to cover any potential costs. Otherwise, you’ll only have yourself to blame when asking why you are not rich.

7. You don’t enroll in an automated savings plan.

Sometimes, the arrival of your monthly salary can give you overconfidence. I know of people who’ve gone out and bought lots of things or gifts because their income arrived. One reason why you are not rich could be a paycheck-to-paycheck lifestyle. If you earn a million dollars but you spend it all afterward, then you can’t say you’re rich.

why you are not rich calculate

Take initiative by having an automated savings plan to directly transfer a portion of your money away. You can get a percentage of your monthly payments and send it to a locked account. That way, you can slowly build your finances over time and you won’t feel tempted to use up that percentage.

8. You don’t dedicate enough time to your investments.

Some of you might be small-time investors or part-time stock traders. You may have already bought several shares from several companies. Fast forward to a year later, and they don’t seem to be paying off.

One thing that you might be forgetting is that investments don’t just grow like plants. You have to dedicate time and effort to making them grow. Having a large amount in your savings won’t matter if you don’t spend it wisely. Why not use what you can add more shares or study economics? The more you dedicate time and effort to each investment, the more you can maximize its returns.

9. You take too long to execute a plan.

Do you have a financial plan set out? You probably carry around a notebook or planner that outlines your year. For example, you wrote down how much money you save every month and where to use it. It sounds like a clever and useful plan.

However, one reason why you are not rich could be your waiting game. You might think that your plan has to go flawlessly. So, instead of taking action, you wait and wait until you feel there are enough funds to make it work. Sometimes, investment is all about taking chances. I’ve made several in my life, some of which worked and some of which failed. However, it’s better to learn from mistakes and keep trying than wait for an ideal scenario that may never come.

10. You think there’s only one path to making money.

Do you think there’s a job out there that’ll make you rich? Do you imagine that being a stockbroker or entrepreneur will earn you lots of cash? Believe it or not, this mentality might be why you are not rich yet. Many self-proclaimed gurus claim that there is one certified way to get financially secure. It could be a job or an investment or a credit card plan.

The truth is that there is no certain way to make money. If being an entrepreneur can lead to millions of dollars, should everyone do it? No! There’s still room for manufacturers and sellers and drivers and other types of jobs. Stock trade might be good but it’s not the only way to make money. I’ve met bus drivers and janitors who may not look like millionaires, but who’ve saved enough money and dedicated lots of time to grow their money. Before you go and think you have the answers, reflect on what you do know.

What habits can help you get rich?

Millionaires don’t settle into one niche and stay there. They don’t get to the top and then lean on their success or their current methods. I used to think that I could it all myself. After suffering heavy financial losses, though, I realized that no man is an island. I had to learn how to delegate work and make myself a team player, not a lone wolf.

Learning proactively

If you look online and check the latest fashion trends or tech purchases, do you feel like you should buy them too? A lot of people feel like they have to “keep up with the Joneses” by matching the newest fad in town. Years ago, people were clamoring for the chance to buy the first iPhone, even if they already have a serviceable flip phone. Nowadays, there are people desperate for the latest iPhone model, even if they got one last year. So, if you’re someone who tries to stay in the trend, you’re risking more cash than you need to.

The reason why you are not rich yet could be a lack of initiative. You can’t assume that you know everything. There is always something new to learn, whether it’s a skill or a perspective. You could learn more about another language or cooking. If you take time to learn proactively, you can arm yourself with lots of tricks and skills in the future.

Building a strong, reliable network

Having a strong network of friends and mentors is a key part of success. You see, people don’t realize that their connections can change and upgrade your perspective. Getting advice from people more successful than you means getting knowledge on how they thrive. Learning important skills or viewpoints about money and business from friends can help you evaluate things better.

Instead of wondering why you are not rich, take a chance and start reaching out to other people. Pick their brains on how they made money and how they saved it. See what investments they like or dislike and why. The more you reach out and make friends, the more you can learn different answers and different reasons.

Taking calculated risks

As I said before, I’ve made a lot of successful money moves in my life. I’ve also failed a lot along the way. However, the important thing I learned is to always take a chance and see what is worth the effort. In that same vein, make sure to look into the risks of whatever plan or idea you have.

For example, you might be thinking about getting health insurance for yourself. You might complain that it costs a lot of money but consider the outcomes first. If you don’t get hurt, you’ve at least covered any potential dangers to yourself. If you do get hurt, you can cover the bill and keep your loved ones financially safe.

A calculated risk can seem expensive but it can also be the right move. And if it’s wrong, always use it as a springboard to get the right answer.

Patiently waiting for long-term payoffs

Lastly, make patience a hobby in your life. A lot of people want instant satisfaction, whether it’s a snack or a nice gadget. Sometimes, enjoying yourself now is what costs you a good and stable future. Don’t spend now and complain about why you aren’t rich. Instead, look at what you’re spending and see where you can cut things off. It might take a while for these changes to affect your finances, but it’ll all be worth it in the end. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Tall ex-corps member who went viral over ‘engagement post’ denies dating colleague


Phillip Ayobami, an ex-corps member, denies claims he’s dating Innocent Ruth, his colleagu
Days ago, the two former National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members with extreme height differences became a sensation on social media.

Ruth had said on Facebook that she got engaged to the “tallest” corps member while in camp.

She thanked the NYSC for connecting her with a man who is to become her romantic partner.

However, in a recent post, Ayobami is now retorting that he’s not dating the former colleague.

“I have no business with her,” Ayobami wrote on the social media site, describing Ruth as a “clout chaser”.

Ayobami added that he hasn’t set his eyes on her for the past two years.


“Sequel to the viral posts on social media platforms ignited by one Miss Innocent Ruth on the 12th of March, 2023 about a fake engagement with me,” the male corps member’s post reads in part.

“I hereby disclaim the viral post and want the general public to note that I have no business in common with her as she’s just a clout chaser.

“I and Innocent Ruth met in the year 2021 at Kayama NYSC orientation camp (Bayelsa state) where we were brought together as the tallest and shortest corps members as part of activities by the NYSC to create fun in camp.

“We never had any relationship during and after the orientation camp. It has been two years since those photos were taken and I haven’t set my eyes on her for over two years now.

“I hereby advice Innocent Ruth to take down the post from all her social media platforms or face legal action.”

Reacting to Ayobami’s post, Ruth admitted that they weren’t in a relationship and said it was “supposed to be a show”.

“Philip isn’t my boyfriend. But after I came up with this and posted it, I told him everything and how we have to play along for some time to see or hear what people will say,” she said.

“This whole thing was supposed to be a show. It was an idea I came up with while in NYSC camp. I just wanted to have fun from seeing people’s reactions and comments.”

Breaking: PDP suspends National Chairman, Ayu with immediate effect


By Peter Duru, Makurdi

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu has been suspended by the party.

The suspension of Dr. Ayu was effected by the Ward Executive of the party in Igyorov Ward of Gboko Local Government Area, LGA, of Benue state.

Addressing the media Sunday, on behalf of Kashi Philip, the Ward Chairman, the Ward Secretary Mr. Vangeryina Dooyum explained that Dr. Ayu was suspended by the Executive for alleged anti party activities.

Reading from a text signed by 12 out of the 17 member Ward Executive, the Secretary stated that the decision to suspend the National Chairman was reached after the leadership reviewed his conduct at the end of the just concluded general elections.

Flanked by the Chairman and other members, the Secretary said, “we observed with utmost dismay that, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu who is the National Chairman of the PDP worked against the success of the party in Igyorov Council Ward.

“It is on record that, he has also failed to pay his Annual Subscription Fees as provided under Section 8 (9) of the constitution of the PDP 2017 (As Amended).

“Further investigation also revealed that, he did not vote during the Governorship and State Assembly Elections held on March 18, 2023.

“It was also discovered that, most of his closest allies worked for the opposition party, the All Progressive Congress, APC, and hence, the abysmal performance of the PDP in Igyorov Ward.

“In view of the foregoing, we hereby pass a Vote of No Confidence on Dr. Iyorchia Ayu and suspend him as a member of our party with immediate effect. The suspension takes effect from March 24, 2023.”

Okocha better than Messi, Ronaldo in one area – John Barnes


Liverpool great, John Barnes, has insisted that Nigeria legend, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha, is better than Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina’s Lionel Messi in the areas of skillful players.

Barnes believes Okocha, who has already retired from football, is in the same bracket as Brazil and Barcelona legend, Ronaldinho.

“About Jay-Jay, formerly he was in Paris [PSG] when he was young and no one really knew about him, then he came here [England] in the last part of his career. If he had come as a 19, 20, 21-year-old it could not have gone any better,” Barnes told SuperSport when speaking about Okocha.

“When you talk of two of the most naturally gifted skilful players, the most skilful player in the world, there are two, Ronaldinho and Jay-Jay Okocha, who is naturally the most skillful player because the things he does on the football field are what you do in the playground, what you do in training you aren’t supposed to do in matches.

“He does it better than [Lionel] Messi, [Cristiano] Ronaldo, anyone in terms of pure skill.”



Alcohol addiction is a growing problem in many parts of the world. So many people, young and old, male and female, have a serious drinking problem. It is important to note that alcoholism is a real disease and can cause changes to the brain, so a person with an alcohol addiction may not be able to control their life. How can you fight this problem?

Accept that you have a Problem

The first and most difficult step you must take is to overcome denial. People with alcohol use disorder typically refuse to believe that they have any sort of problem with drinking. So if you have a problem with drinking, you must admit that painful truth to yourself. Do not ignore friends, siblings, or parents who tell you that you are drinking too much. They are not your enemies because they tell you the truth.

Develop the Determination to Quit

Be determined to quit drinking alcohol. A lack of resolve can mean living​—and dying—​as a person with alcohol use disorder. What can help? Focusing on the destructiveness of alcoholism can help you to hate what is bad and can strengthen your resolve to stop drinking once and for all. You might, for example, give a lot of thought to the high toll alcoholism exacts physically, emotionally, and morally. Consider, too, what large doses of alcohol can do to your body, gradually poisoning your vital organs. It may also help to remind yourself that you do not need alcohol to be happy.

Get Help

Simply having the desire to recover is usually not enough. You will also need the support and help of others. Trusting someone to help you with your problem will not be easy. Your family can give you support. Try to let people know you want to stop, so that they encourage you. Get professional help, if possible.

Find New Friends

Friends are a major influence on people who abuse alcohol. You will therefore find it hard to stop drinking if you hang out with drinkers. Living without alcohol will be an ongoing battle for you. At times abstinence may be very difficult. It is thus not uncommon for a recovering alcoholic to experience a relapse, leading to overwhelming feelings of guilt. Should that happen, remember that we all stumble many times. Learn from your mistake, and be more determined than ever not to relapse again. By showing such determination, you can quit.

I always recommend reading reviews and buyer’s guide before purchasing a mobile phone because this will help you know more about the smartphone. Here are some important factors to consider when buying a 5G phone .

Mobile Network compatibility.

Be sure to check the band frequently of the 5G phone and ensure it compatible with that of your mobile network. This is was a big issue with some 4G phones in Nigeria as the band frequency was not supported on Glo Nigeria network.

Battery capacity

The battery usage of 5G smartphones are much higher than other mobile phones therefore i suggest you check the battery capacity of that 5G phone you want to buy. For this reason, i recommend a 5G phone with a battery capacity of 4000mah and above. Checkout the some phones with long battery life in Nigeria.


To download all those large files quickly, you will need a 5G phone with a large storage capacity. Therefore consider getting a phone with a large internal storage just like the smartphones listed above.


The most expensive phones are not always the most durable. Be sure to look out for durable smartphones, you can get them from reputable brands.

These are the best cheapest 5G phones in 2023. At the moment, all these smartphones are available for purchase at retail stores in Nigeria and before the end of the year more best budget phones with 5G network will be available in the Nigerian market.

I wasn’t allowed to enter Basketmouth’s wedding venue -AY spills more on 17-yr-old beef with colleague- VIDEO


Nigerian filmmaker and Comedian, Ayo Makun popularly known as AY, has continue to cause a stir online following a tell-all interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, where he opened up on his 17-year-old beef with colleague, Basketmouth.

SPY NIGERIA earlier reported that a portion of the interview shared online captured AY recounting how things went sour between them after a failed business transaction in 2006.

AY, in another portion of the interview posted by Jideonwo, shared more about the longstanding beef that has left them as sworn enemies over the years.

According to him, after the 2006 incident, he attempted to attend Basketmouth’s wedding but wasn’t allowed into the venue.

He said when they arrived, his wife’s name was on the guest list but his own was noticeably missing.

The comic star shared.

“I was looking at my wife, my wife dey look her husband and she was like okay, let’s be going home since you no qualify to enter,”

AY mentioned that a lot has happened over the years that people are unaware of.

He alleged there were times that Basketmouth would often refuse to introduce him at events where they were both billed to perform.

His words;

Basket will be at an event, maybe AY is on the Bill, he won’t introduce me if he’s the MC. I will just go and pick my mic on the floor and go and do my thing. It was that bad,”

The comedian also recounted an incident that happened at a time when things had significantly picked up for both of them career-wise and family-wise. He claimed to have spotted Basktmouth at a club and approached him for a chat.

And my dear colleague looked at me eye ball to eye ball and said: ‘I’m a beast, I don’t forgive”
