On Tuesday morning, August 3, Brume secured Nigeria’s first medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after she leaped 6.97 metres with her very first jump to claim bronze behind second-placed Brittany Reece of the United States and gold medallist Malaika Mihambo of Germany. After receiving the medal, she said she would be draping her medal on her pastor upon her arrival.
Her decision received mixed reactions with some people criticizing her.
Reacting to the criticism that has trailed Brume’s decision, Omokri wrote
”Anthony Joshua draped his World Heavyweight Title belt on Buhari. You did not talk.
Ese Brume says she wants to drape hers on Bishop Oyedepo, your demons are agitating you. Between Oyedepo and Buhari, who has done more for Nigerian youths, education and sports?
Buhari that banned the Twitter that you are using to denounce Ese and Oyedepo? Oyedepo that fought against the #TwitterBan is now your headache?
You leave the man you elected to denounce the man you did not elect and then you wonder why your country is wandering without direction!”
