Information has it that the duo of Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme (Aki and Pawpaw) are going to headline entertainment stars who will cheer the Super Eagles during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The remaining eight Nollywood’s stars have not been listed yet. However, it was revealed that Nollywood stars are not only making calls to the State House, but also pay visits trying to lobby to be among the beneficiaries.
Recall that Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has set aside $800,000 (about N138.4 million) to sponsor 10 Nigerians in the entertainment industry to cheer the Super Eagles during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The financial plan presented to the National Assembly, the NFF  had revealed  its decision to invite the duo of Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme, popularly called Aki and Pawpaw and eight other Nigerians in the entertainment industry   for the world football fiesta in June.
The federation yesterday received in audience four Nollywood stars  who allegedly came to make case for themselves.

Nigeria, good people, great nation. Only increasing the pocket of those that has already made money. Telling the poor masses to "go and die". God! If it's good to u, then it's also good to us.
