shocked



I remember his visit...But it was when he visited 042 in 1981.
We were lucky that he touched down at the Enugu Airport. Plenty female airport workers rushed him at the VIP lounge for pictures.
The roads from mainland to New Society, Emene were crowded with people trekking to the airport to behold the World's greatest.

I still have a few Polaroid pictures of this.

Muhammad Ali's downfall began when he allowed Elijah Mohammed and the NOI indoctrinate him into converting and changing his name from Cassius Clay.

He became so haughty that there was zero regard for God.
God can neither share his glory nor be mocked that was why he ensured his gradual nervous breakdown began the day he slammed his head on the ground.

He is called the greatest for a reason. Besides his boxing prowess, Muhammed Ali was an ambassador to the world and loved throughout the globe. Just look at how humble and down to earth he was in that video. All dressed in Nigerian attire, he talked about how being amongst his African brothers and sisters even motivates him more to excel.

RIP to the greatest ever.

cool

Pure lies!

You couldn't have been born at the time, because of your childish comments on most threads.

Even your association of Nation of Islam with pride shows how naive and uninformed you are.

Well, it's something for your ass lickers like GOFRONT and other idîots to masturbate on.
