Here Is Why Messi Aigbe and Messi Johnson Are Trending

I have always said it, Nigerians have no chill and it was again proven last night…

With Lionel Messi’s inability to rescue his team during the semi-final game against Liverpool last night, Popular Nollywood actresses, Mercy Aigbe and Mercy Johnson woke up this morning and found their names trending on Twitter along with the football star.

The game which was the second leg tie of the UEFA Champions League semi-final saw Liverpool needing to overturn a 3-0 deficit which they suffered at the hands of the Spanish giant, Barcelona in Camp Nou, Spain. The Argentine star was excellent on the night as he completed a brace with a stunning 30-yard freekick.

However, on the return leg, he was a walking shadow as Liverpool rained goals on Barcelona to at Anfield; hence, completing a superb and unbelievable comeback in the world of football. The brilliance of the English Premier League side ensured that the world greatest footballer will not have the opportunity to play in a fourth UCL final.

As a matter of fact, some had even predicted that his team will go on clinch one of the two spots in the finals, win the competition and even win his sixth Ballon d’Or award.

Sorry guys, all those predictions will have to wait till next season…

Trust Nigerians, they find a way to make fun of every situation; immediately after the game, some Nigerians took to Twitter to mock Messi by giving him a new name. According to them, he should now be referred to as either Messi Aigbe or Messi Johnson because he was totally in the shadows for 90 minutes.


Reacting to the post, Mercy Aigbe took to her Instagram page to question why Nigerians have been tagging her in a football-related matter. In her words, she said;

Nigerians will not kill me oh ?‍♀️?‍♀️?‍♀️ Wetin be my own for this football matter, that people have been tagging me since ?‍♀️

From all of us at NOLLYWOODALIVE, congratulations to all Liverpool fan out there. Go forth and clinch the title.
