Breaking News: The National Television is not to be confused with the Streets

You can’t be throwing F-bombs, dropping cups, flinging caps, hurling insults, dropping Mics and flipping the bird on National television! And be claiming the streets!


Stop that rubbish.

The “streets” is not a ticket for misbehavior. It’s not an excuse for stupidity. You represent several brands. Several international brands for that matter.

And all the Nigerians that are supporting this nonsense in the name of the “streets,” let’s get off that nonsense. This monopolistic definition of the “streets” is insulting.

There are hardworking people on the streets, quiet people on the streets, humble people on the streets, people legitimately working to make things happen on the streets for themselves and others.

You can be from the “streets” and still carry yourself with dignity. To default this sad behavior to the “streets” is an insult to the hardworking people out there who carry themselves with dignity regardless of the situation.

Please let’s stop insulting the “streets” in the name of the “streets!”

  1. Absolutely correct. I’m very sure they’ve been watching all these nonsensical behaviour from American hip hop artist like JayZ and Co. Some naija people just like copying wrong behaviour all in the name of becoming someone else.
