Yesterday night saw the return of European football; UEFA Champions League. Clubs across Europe kicked off their respective group stage campaigns.

It was a night to remember for Young Boys as they began their Group F campaign with a win against Manchester United. Cristiano Ronaldo put Manchester United in front in the 13th minute with his third goals since rejoining the club.

However, the night couldn’t get any better as Aaron Wan-Bissaka was shown a straight red card after a poor challenge on Christopher Martins. Young Boys used this advantage to level up the match in the 66th minute, through a well worked goal by Moumi Ngamaleu.

The home side did not stop there as they piled the pressure on Manchester United and soon it paid off after a defensive error by Jesse Lingard gifted the host a brilliant, well taken goal by Jordan Siebatcheu to ensure a 2-1 victory in Switzerland.

On the other side, Barcelona were out to revenge their last seasons 2-8 defeat to Bayern Munich. However, Robert Lewandoski’s brace, and Thomas Muller ensured a 3-0 victory for the Bundesliga giants, upsetting Barcelona yet again in Camp Nou, Spain.

4 things we need to normalise before the end of 2021!

Published

A lot has been said about some of these things but it is time we shed them off. Most of these things are not cast on stones but are deeply rooted in us.  Let us work towards normalising them.

1. Clubbing in sneakers for ladies

After a tough week of hustling, adulting, and paying bills, the weekend is here and you need to loosen up, go clubbing, and have fun. Question is, does it always have to be in heels? You probably already use your heels during workdays. Ditch them and go for something comfier.

2. Male grooming

For the longest time, we have been uptight when we see men getting serious about their grooming. It is about time we do away with the labeling of well-groomed men.

And for the men, getting a pedicure and using face masks does not make you any less of a man.

3. Calling out rogue service providers

It is about time we put an end to staying quiet whenever any service provider treats us awfully. Routine is simple- let them know you don’t like how they are treating you and if need be, contact the customer care office.

4. Commercialising our passions

We don’t really need white-collar jobs to get things going. With the current unemployment situation in the country, the least you can do is find something to put food on your table. Commercialise that passion.

Mulamwah said, “Even if we don’t open, people will use her names to open fake accounts. I will not give trolls a chance to write negative comments on her page. I will specifically open pages for her future benefits. I earn through social media and so, I don’t mind creating a platform for her as early as this.”
