Much ado about nothing!

UK Prime Minister David Cameron, US President Barack Obama and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmid have faced serious backlash from people since these photos of them taking a selfie at Nelson Mandela's memorial service in Johannesburg was released yesterday.

People online are accusing them of undermining the seriousness of the event by smiling and taking photos on their mobile phones. I don't know what these people are talking about, I think it's adorable and shows they are regular people like us, at the end of the day. What do you think, was this inappropriate?

Well, in a way, its the fact. Consider their status and popularity, they shouldn't be caught taking an informal shot. Look how graceful and focused Michelle is... On the other hand, its actually a celebration of life after all Mandela hz passed the average age of living. So its simply a 2-way thing.

The life of Madiba is worth celebrating, his immemorial does not require a straight face. Obama nailed it in his speech; it is time to live the legacy Mandela left for us all. We all are leaders in our little quarters. Madiba requires more than what these self-made critics are projecting.

Atobatele said...

Some people really have mental issue. So because he's taking a picture of himself is now something to debate on...We should learn and know these people are human too and have blood and water running through their veins. If he's not concerned about his death he wouldn't have go for his burial. Take it or leave it..I love Obama

Those persons ranting need to be examined, bcos these guys only showed to the world they normal people, d event is not even suppose to make people so sad, we all talking about a man who lived 95yrs, touched lives with his actions, his exit should be a joyfull one bcos he lived a good life. The lessons learnt from his life is d most important thing not by caring a face full of sadness with a heart full of evil.

You got the right title for it Linda. Its really "much ado about nothing" the critics are simply jobless.

Anonymous said...

For a continent that's use to seeing their leaders as Gods and rulers rather than public servents it must be difficult seeing leaders of powerful countries behave like human beings capable of having fun. And am sure madiba would have apperciated it. Zest of life been enjoyed. Friendships been bounded across continents

Tope Fatunmbi said...

I kinda disagree with u Linda, I think no one should be doing this in this kind of event. I know they miss this kind of life cos of their status but the time and place is wrong. I can also see that Mitchelle is not part of the childish act.

come on guys!!!! there is absolutely nothing wrong with this picture. why cant they take photos,aint they human like us,the fact that they went to attend Mandela's memorial doesnt mean that they cant smile in the pictures they took at the event,its a way of celebrating a life well spent by madiba... people need stop seeing things in wrong directions and start to think right. There is no gain saying by them taking photos is undermining the seriousness of the event by smiling and taking photos on their mobile phones!!!!! whats the meaning of that!!!! who ever wrote this shit is really crazy . just tryna to cause issues where there is non. everyone at that even took photos and smiled ,people even sang and dance and drank!!! instead of you to start to thinking of how to leave a good legacy behind like what mandela did.you are busy comdemning the leaders takings photos and smiling. those who ever started this topic are just bunch of retards!!!!

Ejike Capable said...

Its no biggie afterall Mandela lived to a very ripe old age so more or less a celebration of life.

clare said...

I do not consider this a big deal, but its kind of funny to see world leaders, giggling like school childre, The fact is THIS, We are celebrating the live of a true african hero, not mourning his death. The man lived well and died well. He is in a better place, so this isnt a cry cry day, rather it should be a happy day. 95 years no be beans na.

OgeAussie said...

There's absolutely nothing wrong. Mandela's memorial was a celebration of life not mourning.

yanz Muy. said...

i don't tink its inappropriate, Mandela lived a fulfilled life and his death is a celebration of life not mourning, so ppl sud rada rejoice and be tnkful he lived dan be concerned with how others reacted to it. if na zo dy sud castigate his wives for kissing also den.

kimiphibia said...

I think it was inappropriate though but then they were celebrating life and not mourning so its kinda permissible.

You cannot see what is wrong with this because you think with your backside. Your love for Obama does not mean you should ignore some sort of sensitivities. Imagine if that was been done on your father's memorial....that will be respect for him right?

Abeg pipo always try forming unnecessary seriousness. To me I dont see anything wrong with it. Am even surprised and laughed alot wen I saw it. I loved that the three are natural n at the same time doing wat we normal peeps will do on a normal day. To me this is wat being a leader is all about. Just be urself. It must not always be about the ego and moreover mandela was a great man, lived long and his burial is a celebration of a worthy life spent n notcrying.

Mandela's burial is a celebration of life and a time for his loved ones to celebrate his achievements; so if feeling free and taking pix is one of d way to celebrate it den no need for d ish. Besides they ar just feeling free and being normal

Please these are normal humanbeings like us that has blood running in their veins.I don't see anything wrong in that.Were they the only people that was smiling and snapping themselves?If you check very well you'll find out that the Mandelas themselves did something like this too.Nelson Mandela was a VERY GREAT man,a rare gem and a wonderful man worthy of emulation,full of smiles in his life.We should celebrate him with smiles too.For God's Sake this is celebration of life.Allow them be BIKO.I nu kwam nu!!!!!!

No biggie

lauren thomas said...

Abegii... dey all look cute. I wonder y Michelle looks so serious. Pls Nelson Mandela died at a ripe old age. He enjoyed d fruits of his labour n must b happy wherever he is. We are nt supposed to mourn, bt to celebrate d life of a grt icon. Pple should let Obama n co just b human for once.

janelicious said...

There is nothing wrong about them thanking the pix.

White Gardenia said...

A YES and a NO. Yes, if the memorial is for a young person but considering the fact that mandela is 95 yrs old, it's a celebration of a life well spent and therefore their accusations are baseless.

I cannot see anything inappropriate about this. All I could see is 1st Lady Michelle lack of interest in whatever they are doing.

The caption really fits it. There is nothing wrong wt that. Though, michelle over seriousness made it very easy for pple to criticize it. But linda it seems u r far behind in giving us the latest gist cos this one has been since yesterday. Or r u in ur honey moon?

hilary obiorah said...

Hey Linda have you seen the picture where Michelle made Obama switch seats? Apparently she didn't think it was proper that he was gisting while the ceremony was going on. But like you said, they are regular people talking selfies

godwin rachel akunna said...

Storm in a tea cup; much ado about nothing.

The trio are amazing individuals, which shows how down to heart they are. None of our leaders in Nigeria can do that, na to dey strong face and crying more than the bereaved. With all due respect GEJ can't do that.

they are just ordinary people with extra ordinary positions, abeg allow them joor, unlike us our president is always mean never losening up

What's the problem..world leaders can't tweet selfies anymore??? Or would u prefer they just steal your money like the retards we have here.

Laughing at naija celebs forming boss and vip wen none of them got a VIP access to Mandela memorial especially all these fake ass celebs

Queen.C. said...

they are being normal....Whoever is talking bad about it,may probably do the same GIVEN THE SAME OPPPORTUNITY.

Miracle Roch said...

Personally I don't see anything wrong with the picture they have taken but taking into consideration the sober mood that must have filled the arena, would have been nice if they took the picture outside that arena. Of course, they didn't fly all the way down to RSA to take pictures.

dee said...

y dey cm leave d first lady out na...jealousy is written all ova her face

pavour said...

See how Obama open mouth hehehe d thing sweet am welk well. .butvd wify face..she is d only one mourning.
