Behind the Scenes with Lans Omar
May 21, 2022.
From Winnipeg, Canada, respect to all my fans, friends and fam!
The weekend vibes are here! – SALNAM to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in Winnipeg, Abdul Suhood Komeh drops the bomb on SLPP, Kandeh Yumkella chairs the Special Parliamentary Select Committee for fake degrees, Fatima "Gucci" Bio off the hook again, plus lots more. You're about to read another jaw-dropping edition of “Behind the Scenes". This column is the radical thoughts of one guy called Lans Omar aka the “Golden Child” - born and raised in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Let's do this: The Sierra Leone Nationals Association of Manitoba (SALNAM) will be celebrating the Queen’s Golden Jubilee commemorating the 50th anniversary of the accession of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the throne. The Golden Jubilee of Elizabeth II is the international celebration Her Majesty since 2002 and SALNAM will be hosting this year’s celebration in Winnipeg, Canada, at a date to be announced. Again, community members are cordially invited to a FREE dinner and dance and it’s been tentatively put across the table for an open mic on the floor for aggrieved members of the community to voice out their grievances and concerns and find a possible way to move forward.
Switching gears: Sierra Leone political commentator, Abdul Suhood Komeh dropped the bomb on SLPP on his Facebook page earlier this week; the London, UK, based 40 Acres Canada columnist describes the SLPP government as "the shittest in Sierra Leone’s history - hands down". He called out all the pompous lies, bullying, killings, arrests, imprisonments, etc of the SLPP on his post as a form of totalitarianism in Sierra Leone . He also touched on the fake academic credentials of the Inspector General of Police and other appointees by this lame president. For the records, Komeh is non-partisan, he belongs to no political party in Sierra Leone.
Next stop: Sierra Leonean opposition lawmaker Dr Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella has been named to chair a Special Parliamentary Select Committee to conduct a nationwide audit of academic credentials of public officials in Sierra Leone. Dr Yumkella, who heads the National Grand Coalition (NGC) in parliament was appointed following the adoption of a resolution paving way for the constitution of the committee. Sierra Leone has been embroiled in a scandal of fake degrees since police busted a now closed institution called Dominion University, which was allegedly awarding “degrees” without proper accreditation. Just one of the bullcraps of the current government, fool man dem.
- Sierra Leone’s First Lady Fatima “Gucci” Bio is off the hook again on Tiktok. Poor lady was trying to rock the lighter song by Salone’s artist Star Zee on Tiktok. First, Gucci didn’t know the song had been around for over 5yrs now, and she was doing some dancehall moves but too challenging for her. Can someone just tell that woman she’s the First Lady of the Republic of Sierra Leone and she should govern herself accordingly and appropriately.
- Rumours going around social medias saying that Sierra Leonean singer Davida Greene aka Vida has died in Freetown have been refuted by the singer's sister that the rumours are blatant lies, and that her sister is alive and waiting for her second surgery. Vida was diagnosed with some intestinal obstruction problem which she was supposed to undergo two major surgeries. The first surgery was very successful.
Question: For very last time, is Chief Sam Sumana really serious about the leadership of APC? Some man dem idle ya.
Finally: Again, the weekend is here. Will be hosting the boys at my backyard today, hopefully it doesn't rain.
Fellas, please take it easy over weekend. If you’re partying, you know the rules - party responsibly! Have a great weekend! Lonta.
I'm out of here!
The Golden Child.
