One of Nigeria’s biggest stand-up comedians, Seyi Law has metaphorically described Super Eagles helmsman, Gernot Rohr as a fraud.
Addressing a large audience at the 2018 Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Award held yesterday at Eko Hotel and Suites, the dark-complexioned comic star recalled that the German tactician cut the image of a confused man after Super Eagles lost their match to Croatia.
“When Super Eagles lost the match, the Nigerian coach was asked during a press conference to comment on what went wrong. Rather than address us through the language we know, he resorted to German. All of us were confused and started looking at one another. At the end, we concluded that maybe the players truly did not understand what this man instructed them to do in that match.
“But when we won today, he was so elated that even when he was addressing journalists, he suddenly remember he can speak English very well. That man is a fraud!
“Dem say Nigeria dey do 419, this man na Yahoo-Yahoo hin dey do…”
The joke threw the entire audience into a hilarious frenzy.
