Nigerian Nnamdi Asomugha signs $60 Million 5year Deal With Philadelphia Eagles

Nnamdi Asomugha became the latest star cornerback to join the Eagles, signing a $60 million, five-year deal on Friday July 29, 2011.

One day after acquiring two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from Arizona, the Eagles stunned the NFL world by landing Asomugha, a two-time All-Pro. Asomugha and Rodgers-Cromartie will team up with Asante Samuel, a four-time Pro Bowl pick, to form probably the best cover secondary in the league.

I'm claiming this one too, he's Nigerian. See him looking like Naeto C. Meanwhile, do these men ever come home? *cough*...:-)

    While I am not disputing the humble look of the mother - according to Noella, but I wonder why we judge people by their appearance? So if the woman was made up and bejewelled, would that diminish the fact that she brought up her 5 children without a husband to support her.

    We must learn not to judge a book by it's cover. Congratulations to the young man and the best of the very best.

    @Noella, you are exactly right! His mom, Auntie Lillian is so humble, its amazing, you'd never know who she is. Losing her husband in such an untimely manner with young kids in LA, and to see God really shower her with blessings. One thing is certain, she's extremely spiritual and Godly and so it makes sense, and so are her kids. Nnamdi is so humble, its absolutely fascinating, even with his last contract, nothing, you'd never know.

    @Linda, yes they do, but abeg remove eye from this one, he's a good boy ;-)

    HER HUMBLE APPEARANCE FURTHER REINFORCES HER GOD FEARING NATURE...AND YES MY DEAR SWEETHEART WHEN A WOMAN HAS NO MAKE UP EARRINGS OR JEWELS IT IS THE EPITOME OF HUMILITY..IN A SOCIETY WHERE EVERYONE LOOKS LIKE MASQUERADES WITH EXCESSIVE MAKEUP, GELES AND JEWELRY LOOKING LIKE XMAS TURKEYS...I WAS MAKING THE POINT THAT SHE IS A MODEST HUMBLE GOD FEARING SWEET LADY THAT EVERYONE CAN ATTEST TO...AND SHE IS REAPING THE REWARDS IN FORM OF WELL ACCOMPLISHED CHILDREN AND WELL ACCOMPLISHED HERSELF BEING A DOCTOR OF PHARMACY....

    Nnamdi is as humble as they come and well grounded with his foundations. He can sing igbo christain songs even though he has never lived in nigeria and helps out a lot of underpriviledged yanky kids. Kudos to him... humble and meek!!!

    Alicia its Nigerians Kwenu!!! Abeg stop all this tribalistic talks that divides us. when you are fighting with Tanzanians the other time, No one heard your Igbo Kwenu, because no one cares. Its time for us to forget this whole Igbo, hausa, yoruba or south south, and stand together as one for the good cause of Nigeria. I had to point this out, cus have noticed the way you drop your tribalistic views especially when it concerns people of same tribe as yourself. Linda said A Nigerian, not an Igbo man

    I can say Igbo Kwenu if i want to. DONT WORRY, IF HE WERE COMMITTING A CRIME, NOBODY WILL BE SAYING I SHOULD SAY "NIGERIA KWENU"
    some folks wanna claim the Igbos as Nigerians when convenient, so I don't even give them the benefit of the doubt. YES i will defend Nigeria when I have to, because I am still a Nigerian, but i will still say "Igbo Kwenu" because this boy is "Aba-made" LOL, ROGER THAT!

    as for that Tanzanian Ho thread, that one is history. it only shows the mentality of so many sadf-faced Nigerians. bash yourselves to praise another, and when the attacks come, nothing to say. SHAME!
    i dont even want to remember such a "national" embarrassment. -_-

    Alicia no one is fighting you. Relax! And with regards to Tanzania issue, my point was that, the people dont know whether it is Igbo or Yoruba. You should get all that aba made or whatever out of your brain. I am from South-South and no other tribe as been segregated in Nigeria has we have been, but still I represent Nigeria Period. Like I said Linda earlier, Linda said a Nigeria and lets leave it at that.
    Forget your Biafra mentality, it wont work!

    Linda, please focus on the ones there at home, abeg. Don't get your heart broken. Someone with the kind of money Nnamdi has will never believe a girl is with him because of his character, the money will always be in the middle like the pink elephant in the room UNLESS a chick met him BEFORE the money OR she has her own loot. Leave these Nigerian-American dudes here, they do come home to visit, chill with the available chicks willing to give it up easily then come home and marry an American woman black, white, Asian, exotic but not Nigerian. It isn't that they don't want to marry a Nigerian woman but the thing is that a Nigerian raised and a Nigerian AMERICAN raised man are two different types - the latter and a woman raised at home dating is like a Chinese dude dating a Namibian woman. I hope I don't come off like I am generalizing, if I am, I don't mean to offend but from my personal experience, it doesn't work as well as people often think it should simply because both people are Nigerians. Each were raised in a different culture even if they are Naija by blood.

    I think Steph is right. I got a BBM message Yesterday that read 'the problem with many people in Nigeria is that there are too many Igbo, too many Yoruba, too many hausa, to many South- South, but only few Nigerians'.
    Steph thumb up for calling Alicia out on that, and Yes Linda was right to say a Nigerian. Alicia your Problem is your like the sound of your own voice abi na typying I go call am, to listen to anyone else. Steph was right on this one.
    CCL Yes your point to Linda is also very valid, but u sound like u have a crush on Linda, she is a babe thou. Linda love, love your blog. xxx

    I'll have to defend Alicia on this one - whenever a crime or something negative has an Igbo person attached to it the tribalists come out in droves.

    Another thing - how come I never see any one of these "One Nigeria" preachers comment when a Yoruba, Hausa, or person from any other tribe praises someone or something of their own? I swear some of you guys can be hypocritical.

    @10:31 PM, THANK YOU!
    first of all, i was only saying Igbo Kwenu because of how sexy he is and not because of anything else. if i see a fine Igbo dude i will say "Igbo Kwenu" because thats just my thing. after all, his papa and his mama are to thank for what he looks like, no be so? there is nothing "tribalistic" about it. SOME FOLKS ARE READING TOO DEEPLY INTO THINGS.


    but when its an Igbo criminal, I (and a few others) are the few folks to point out that there are criminals from all tribes and the outside world only sees the guy as a Nigerian. NO ONE EVER comes out with their "One Nigeria" speeches when an Igbo does something wrong. but when folks leave comments like "Yoruba beauty" etc etc etc, I don't see "One Nigeria" comments either. but when it's an Igbo, "OHHHHH NOOOO!"

    besides, how many times have folks been called "too Igbo" "Igbotic" on this site? abeg.

    Noella, no be fight. Haba. People like me? You do not know me? So why would you jump to that conclusion? The post is about Nnamdi, and you made mention of his mother so if you choose to curse her or say derogatory things about her, it is your opinion, not mine.

    Cecilia Ibru is also a humble woman as she always only wore small pearl earrings, a pearl necklace and blue suit abi?

    @Alicia, I am the anonymous at 10:31. I'm not a tribalist at all but the internet has left me with disillusion. The hate that young Nigerians spew for others on the basis of tribe is very sad and has shown that Nigeria has no hope. I won't go into detail but I'm sure you understand.

    For some reason Igbo people get the most hate - not playing victim but an honest survey of what is written in this website and at most Nigerian forums will show that this is true.

    I just glanced at some of the preachy posts and found a snide comment about you having a "Biafran" mentality. They think they are smart.

    Haba Noella it is simple English. Read my comment s-l-o-w-l-y and maybe with a glass of water.

    Your words.....' when a woman wears no make up..........'. So I used an example of a woman who portayed herself to be humble, to butress my thoughts that it is not only by a humble look that people are humble.

    This is not a fight, now? I gather from your comments that you know the family, but please, read well what is written and understand the comment. I do not write negative stuff and so I KNOW that all my comments have been clean, in
    good faith and my opinion. I have not personalised my comments at all as I do not know them, but I can appreciate the efforts of the mother as I am also a more to 5 children.

    Breathe people...in and out.
    Now repeat!

    How did this go from praising Nnamdi to one filled with curse words?

    Nnamdi considers himself a "American born Nigerian". Nnamdi is Igbo.
    We are all proud of him, proud of his mom's strong influence on him and he's a great image for all that can be affiliated with him. At 30, he has also established a great legacy that is greater than his peers, athletes and non athletes alike.
    Great charisma, charming personality and handsome.

    Lets not take away from it with these comments, people googling his name, will come across this and its not a good look for us.

    Celebrating one aspect of a person doesnt take away from other aspects. Igbos can celebrate him, Americans can, Nigerians can, Californians can, folks from Los Angeles can, folks from his high schl can, folks from Berkeley can (college), folks from Louisiana can (where he was born), folks from his mama's village, his papa's village, his family friends, list goes on.

    No need to get threatened by that.

    Igbo kwenu
    Naija kwezuonu
    America hi
    Ekene diri onye nwe anyi :-)

    Again inhale and exhale...

    PS: If I were gay, Linda, I wouldn't mind having a crush on you. You ain't hard of the eyes, you are successful, what's not to crush on? LOL
