Raheem Sterling is seriously trending on Nigerian twitter after congratulating his fellow Manchester City Footballer Kelechi Iheanacho on twitter.Now there's nothing wrong with that absolutely.The problem is Raheem Sterling chose to call Iheanacho "Uncle Kelechi" in his tweet! Chai!
Now Sterling is 20 years old,Kelechi Iheanachor is 18,excuse me while i clear my throat,so why would a
20 year old call an 18 year old Uncle Kelechi,especially as that is a sign of respect for an older person among black people,Africa especially.
Could Raheem Sterling being a closet African, or is the Uncle a private joke among the team mates?When i saw that tweet at the end of Match of the Day,my face lit up,i thought that Sterling boy is a cheeky lad.But i never thought for a second twitter was gonna eat it up!
Twitter has gone crazy and i haven't laughed so much in a long time reading the jokes.
So Raheem Sterling,you owe us an explanation,why did you refer to Kelech Iheanachor as Uncle Kelechi in your tweet?
