Fire on the mountain:

Kids are arranged into two circles, one with one more member than the other. When a signal is given, they begin to run in opposite directions singing “fire on the mountain, run, run, run” until a whistle signalling – “fire is up!” is blown. Then each player tries to get a partner from the other circle.

After the scramble, the player without a partner is penalised to do certain stunts or made to squat in the centre of the circle. The removal process continues until one pair is left and the pair are crowned the winners.  The name for this game varies across Nigerian cultures.

 

Tinko Tinko

Girls especially loved this one. It involves two partners facing each other, while the theme song is sang by both as the game goes on. With hands held half way up, they begin the game which involves interchanging of hands front and back and slamming of hands by both partners. In this game, a lot of clapping happens in this game.

Who Is In The Garden:

Here, the children make a big circle, starting with singing “form a big circle”. After that, the anchor then stays in the middle and runs in the circle singing, “ Who is in the garden a little fine boy/ girl (depending on the sex of the child) can I come and see him/ her, then everybody then responds “No” “No” “No”, then the anchor someone else and says “follow me”. This cycle is repeated until the last person remains, then others go in hiding while the last person goes searching for them.

 

Police and thief:

This was like Nigerian kids replicating action blockbursters. In this game, there are the good guys (police) and the bad guys (thieves) but the stolen object is imagined. The kids then divide themselves into two groups, then the police group will try to find and catch those people playing thieves.

 

Ten Ten:

In playing this game, girls stand facing each other and clap their hands as they move their legs to a rhythm. The goal of each girl during this game is to ensure that she does not raise the same leg directly facing the other girl – which means it is no problem for a girl to raise a left leg when the other girl raises a right leg. The moment a girl raises the wrong leg, the other girl scores a point.

Boju-Boju:

 This is the Nigerian version of hide and seek. Every other person goes into hiding and the person seeking will start by singing the song, ‘boju boju o…’ and after singing, he starts to chase and anyone he/she catches will be the next to seek. Every seeker starts his/her chase by sing the song.

US vs Iran: Man Utd cancels training camp 20200115 094927

Manchester United have scrapped plans for a training camp in the Middle East for the sake of players’ safety.

United have a break between their home game against Wolves on February 1 and the trip to Chelsea on February 17.

And the club had looked into the prospect of organising a warm weather camp in either Qatar or Dubai during that time.

But tensions caused by the brewing conflict between the United States and Iran, have prompted United into a rethink.

“We were looking at Middle East but that is definitely not going to happen,” manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told a news conference on Tuesday.

“If there is one thing that worries me, it’s not on the football pitch, there are other things that will worry me more than football.”

Justin Bieber diagnosed with ‘incurable’ disease 20200110 003220

Canadian Pop singer, Justin Brew Bieber has revealed he was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, an infection caused by bacteria commonly carried by ticks.

The 25-year-old singer broke the news on Instagram on Wednesday.

“While a lot of people kept saying Justin Bieber looks like s***, on meth etc, they failed to realize I’ve been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my skin, brain function, energy, and overall health.

“These things will be explained further in a docu-series I’m putting on YouTube shortly,”

“You can learn all that I’ve been battling and overcoming!! It’s been a rough couple years but getting the right treatment that will help treat this so far incurable disease and I will be back and better than ever,” he wrote.
