Mikel annoyed by wedding rumours

Nigeria midfielder John Mikel Obi denies reports that he is getting married to Sandra Okugbue

Nigeria midfielder John Mikel Obi is bristling at reports that he is about to get married to model Sandra Okugbue.

A national tabloid reported on Monday that Mikel was set to wed the former toilet soap model, but the midfielder angrily dismissed the claims.

"I don't understand where this is coming from," Mikel told KickOffNigeria.com on Monday.

"I know her. We're friends, but we haven't spoken in a long time and definitely not about marriage."

The report claimed that the traditional introduction has been scheduled for this Sunday in Onitsha, but Mikel was firmly categorical in his dismissal. "There's nothing like that," he said.

Mikel played in Nigeria's 1-1 draw against Kenya on Saturday, and joined the rest of the squad in attending a reception held in honour of their African Nations Cup triumph by Akwa Ibom State governor Godswill Akpabio on Sunday in Uyo.

The midfielder flew out to London later that night.

@ ALL Nigerians

My plea to you gentlemen this is not about all south Africans posting #### about other nations. We are not the same so bear with other south Africans and condemn the person in question who is behaving like that.

Things like this always happens between ourselves and it doesn't mean some of us are happy about this. We are fellow blacks and to make matters worse is that you will never see the same people having problems against Europeans but their fellow blacks

@El Solano & Maxi

please brothers this is not supposed to be.Let me tell you something that needs to stay in your mind forever,i did visited Derby In the UK sometimes and when this English sees us they refer us as Africans meaning Obi is refered to as African even if they know he is Nigerian.He is representing Africa in an international football.

Going back to the wedding story there is no problem with the editor posting this in a SA kickoff cos Obi is an international star,a celebrity,his name is associated with fame,he has lot of money.Kick off knows very well that Obi s name makes their website famous too and they don't care what or whoever says what.Their priority is to pass information to us people who are eager to know what is happening in the world of football whether home or abroad.

Hope you change my Niggas

I'm not 100% sure about this but I don't think kickoff differentiates between KickoffNigeria or KickoffSouthAfrica when posting news. I say this because I come here for mostly Naija news but I see quite a bit of SA info also. A few I read but most I ignore because it doesn't interest me. I'd advise that if yo don;t care about a particular story, just ignore it and get on with your life. That is just my humble opinion.

@blackpanther Lmao just googled it...Mikel in hot soup hahaha. ..

There's nothing wrong having a news about Mikel posted on a SA website. it's bc whoever posted the news sees Nigerians and SA as allies, partners, brothers though we have our differences some times,doesn't mean anyone should be so uncivilized by taking a news about another African posted on a SA website as an offence. Are you the one who created the website? Or do you in any way contributes to the progress of this site by advertising ? If you can't say yes ti both questions then you have not right to decide what news is posted on here.

I really don't know why we get offended when a top news is posted . If you think it doesn't interest you, why comment? I sense hatred and Jealousy, when people make such comments. When i log on to Kickoff.com, the first page that opens is that of SA, then, i go ahead to click on Nigeria. Now, a sports website is meant for reading purpose ,but it's very simple, read what you find interesting and ignore the rest. Why do we continue to bring ourselves so low by dissing or battering about irrelevant matters? Why can't we all make some educative contribution in this site? If you don't like Nigeria and Nigerians, please keep it to yourselves. I love all nations , but yeah,as much as most SA wouldn't want to be in Nigeria, i wouldn't want to be in SA either. But that doesn't mean i dislike people from SouthAfrica. Let's all stop all this cyber war and forge ahead as one Africa.
