You all think its funny right, but in the real sense it is not. Education is very important and that is the reason why those who really call the shots are never celebrated but are wealthy cause they use willing people like these artistes who look for an easy way out all in the name of entertainment to do the work and wear out themselves with a couple of bucks in their pockets while the real money is made by the ones with the brains and some level of education. Just look at 2Face's explanation, he tried to be funny but it was so obvious he had no idea about the word and quite a lot of them as well. WHAT A SHAME.

What did they say? For some reason, the video is not showing on my phone. Also, it's penultimate as in "second to last" right?

kai!buh come to think of it o,this is really embarrassing,how is it that these ppl we all look up to as celebs have no clue as to the meaning of the word.wow!

Lol.. OMG This is sooo funny.. Lol I pity students of these days with all dem BB's etc and the constant abreviations ...its no wonder WAEC results are getting worse by the day. We have to start reading again as a nation! And by reading I dont mean blogs ..or hints magazine.. I mean reading classic novels, that'll help us expand our vocabulary. If penultimate becomes a trending word on twitter then you'll see people using it like say tomorrow no dey.. Just as how linda describes every well dressed person as looking "DAPPER" as if adjectives don finish for dictionary...
..Ngozi says so via my agbalumoberry

watevs said...

I beg all you "over sabi,I am well educated" that are yarning nonsense...these so called uneducated kats probably make way more money than you do and probably even earn more respect. We are not meant to know every single word in the dictionary and Penultimate is NOT an everyday word so please take several seats and shut up

khia said...

Loved this sooo much. Too funny and it auto played into the "bobbi" census...Still so funny as well

tax collector said...

Topdawg said...

Honestly speaking, this is not something we should take for joke. Imagine all of the "stars" that were asked the meaning of the word penultimate, none seemed to know it except one. To make it worse was Tiwa's explanation instead of saying I don't know it. This shows how much we give to learning and it is a reflection of the Nigerian society.

We need to do more particularly our so called University students.

The word really suffered in the mouth of the interviewees that night.

Kudos to those who got it: Dr Sid(why won't he get it; he is a doctor!), Ice Prince, Steve Onu(Yaw), Koffi(Candy man, Candy man) and others I can remember.

Woah, really hilarious! Thanks for posting this Linda, made my day! But on a more serious note, i am disappointed in Nigerians. This just goes to show that not everyone who goes to school is fit to be called Educated. Was disappointed to see Tiwa Savage didn't even know the meaning. Shame really.

I don't really expect so much from the Artistes. Afterall, most of them are products of our educational system. If you expand the survey area to Universities & Corporate areas, you'll be amazed @ the failure that will still be obtained

I tot 2face attended Esut, atleast in UNEC once a person gets 2 d level a step below final yr, he or she knows they're in their PENULTIMATE klas...inodawrds, wat we call d ''2nd 4rm last'' klass!

It's true, we are not meant to know every word but when you read widely, you will come across such words.

I got to know about "penultimate" as a result of reading Newspapers.

My people READ! READ!! and READ!!! For those who take foreign exams like SAT, TOEFL, GRE etc such words would be a piece of cake!

Sasha Fierce! said...

Truth be said,it's a big shame and utterly pathetic that none of these folks know the simple meaning of 'Penultimate'.....Yet they know all the designer stuffs and waka around with fake accents. I asked my 6 yr old son this same question and he got it right.

because they are celebrities doesn't make them genuises.after all,that is not a word we use commonly in our day to day conversations.cut them some slack please...

Jeeeeez....LWKMD. My English teacher (teacher of English) actually advised us to use penultimate instead of second to the last...Guess when.......Jss 3....Maayyyne...Kudos to my teachers....*still tryna contain my laughter*

Ant said...

as funny as this is, it is quite disgraceful. if you don't know why not just admit right off the bat instead of displaying your ignorance abi na stupidity for all to see and trying to make a joke of it?

Blunt Queen said...

its a lie, Tiwa Savage doesent know the meaning of penultimate? 4 real? the same tiwa that claims to have written songs for Monica, mary j blige? brought up in America? truth is she looks smarter than she is. did you guys xpect tuface to know the meaning? if he did, i would have eaten stones...

hisssss said...

All these I am smart people on here and I read a lot or is it I am well educated may you kindly shut the fuck up already. Sorry to burst your fucken bubbles but carrying the whole dictionary in your condescending minds does not put money on the table any longer. I am a tutor to international students at one of the top schools in the world. These dudes can calculate the toughest math equations and formula in a micro minute but their English is next to zero. It does not stop them from earning money or being GOOD at what they do. So kindly shut the fuck up please. Naijas and oversabi and I am better than you attitude..., after all is said and done, the average uneducated joe is doing way better than them.....long ass hissssssss

Seriously all of you insulting dem for not knowin..am sure 90% of you jsst checked out the meaning cos it came up.if you were caught unawares you wld fail it 2.so chill out on dem celebs..LMAO tho

Pot Of Honey said...

@anony,3:47PM. PENULTIMATE means
1,next to the last
2,anything that is next to the last,esp a penult.
from Latin paene almost + ultimate, on the model of Latin paenultimus.
for Example sentence ( your last sentence does not automatically follow from your penultimate sentence ). i hope u will understand it now
