Veekee James, a well-known fashion designer, shades Nigerians after the country’s loss to Ivory Coast in the AFCON 2023 final.
It should recalled that, amid the glamour and publicity surrounding the designer’s wedding, many Nigerians, including celebrities, began to grumble.
However, following the Super Eagles match against Ivory Coast that ended in a loss despite the high hopes from Nigerians on bringing home the AFCON cup, VeeKee James stepped on toes in a now-deleted post.
She emphasized that Nigerians would finally get distracted by the loss of the match, sparing her from the rants and grumbling about the glamour of her wedding event.
In her words, “At least una go leave me now carry una anger face Super Eagles.”
The statement, however, struck the nerves of many, leading to a second wave of attacks from social media users.
