Watching The Super Eagles Play Makes Me Depressed – Comedian, Gordons Reveals


Godwin Komone, the favored Nigerian comic who’s popularly generally known as Gordons has talked about himself and his love for sports activities.

He talks concerning the poor high quality of the present Tremendous Eagles staff, his love for Adesanya and extra on this interview with PETER AKINBO

Do you may have any historical past in sports activities?

I used to be a robust soccer lover, however I grew up in the kind of household the place sport was not inspired. My dad anticipated me to go to highschool and change into a physician or a lawyer; so, I wasn’t inspired within the space of sports activities however I cherished soccer lots and I can nonetheless play soccer completely.

Are you able to inform us extra on why you couldn’t pursue a profession in soccer?

Within the days the place sports activities was being developed in our space, I didn’t have any form of encouragement to pursue sports activities. I didn’t even know that sports activities was profitable as a result of the mindset was that if you happen to have been ever going to be a really profitable and notable individual in life, you needed to be both a lawyer or an engineer.

Did you be part of your faculty soccer staff?

I wasn’t allowed in any respect, and the parental concern was there so I didn’t play for the staff however I used to be all the time attending video games.

What’s your favorite sport to look at?


Who’s your favorite fighter within the UFC and why?

Isreal Adesanya. Aside from the truth that he’s a Nigerian like me, I simply love his supply, his confidence, he fights tactically, he’s very expert, very decided and severe about what he’s doing. And the popularity of our nation outdoors the nation will not be one, persons are handled lower than lots others, so when you’re privileged to see a Nigerian who’s ‘repping’ appropriately and never slicing corners and making his cash, you ought to be proud.

These individuals don’t desires us Africans going the place they must go as a result of they simply imagine that we’re speculated to battle and being a Nigerian and dominating the middleweight overcoming quite a lot of challenges and with the work he has put in to get to the place he’s so whether or not he has a struggle or not, I make certain to look at him on all his platforms.

Did you watch his final struggle towards Jared Cannonier?

Sure, I did. 

Lots of people stated he didn’t ship after elevating expectations, that it was a boring struggle, what do you suppose?

All people who’s within the UFC will need to have been coaching along with his life as a result of the UFC will not be a spot for laughter. It’s like a do-or-die setting, and for somebody coming to struggle Israel Adesanya, do you suppose the individual didn’t put together?

That man gave his finest struggle, he didn’t win with a knockout however in that ring, these individuals put together for knockouts. That is Blended Martial Arts; you’re both punching or kicking, and also you’ll attempt to win both by knockout or submission or factors. These fighters are educated.

What’s the distinction between Israel’s struggle and that of (Floyd) Mayweather and (Manny )Pacquiao? Did Mayweather knock him out? Folks ought to realise that boxing or MMA will not be straightforward in any respect, I do comedy and I don’t go on stage boasting that I’ll kill it, I don’t know the viewers that I’ll face however I’m going ready for each eventuality. If we’ve a free journey, positive, and generally, we battle on stage, so I feel everybody criticising Israel ought to do one other rethink as a result of he gave his finest.

And for him ‘boasting’, that’s the regular propaganda, even once we comedians are about to do a present, we make all the identical noise, ‘we will destroy it’ nevertheless it’s not all of the reveals that finish like that. Do they suppose Cannonier got here to be crushed? So, all that’s simply propaganda, even in church buildings, after they print banner of ‘lame will walk and blind will see’, what number of of those miracles have they finished?

Adesanya and (Kamaru) Usman have repeatedly stated they don’t need to struggle one another saying they’re ‘brothers’, and in that kind of trade, do you suppose they will final?

One issues Nigerians get outdoors this nation is that they abruptly realise that they’re brothers. I come from the Urhobo tribe in Niger Delta and another tribes don’t agree with us but when I meet these different tribes abroad, they deal with me like household however as soon as we come again to Delta, they abruptly cease speaking to me.

It’s unhappy that it is just when Nigerians get out of this nation and have a degree of prosperity and safety that they understand that Nigerians are their household. I feel two of them can compete although, it’s a sport, not conflict, and the higher individual ought to win.

Who do you suppose is the best Nigerian footballer ever and why?

Jay-Jay Okocha. I feel the fervour with which he performs soccer would make anybody need to play soccer. He loves soccer so I feel he’s simply one of the best.

What do you suppose of the present Tremendous Eagles?

Actually, I have no idea them. I’ve stopped watching Nigerian soccer because the days of Okocha and I don’t perceive them fully. I don’t need to watch something and be feeling melancholy.

Are you saying they’re a miserable staff to look at?

No, they’re not. I’m simply saying that they will up their sport a bit to allow them to draw our consideration. You’ll agree with me that in the course of the time of Okocha, we have been all glued to our TV screens to look at the Tremendous Eagles play nevertheless it’s been a very long time I watched them.

Would you encourage your kids in sports activities?

I have no idea the future of my kids and I can be glad if none of my kids pursued leisure. This trade is not what it was once. If any of them is sweet in sports activities, I’ll wholeheartedly encourage my children. I’m not a father that might discourage them, no matter they need to do, I’ll help.
