In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Temitope revealed that people have been bothering him about his prediction of the Super Eagles semi-final match.

Temitope, however, maintained they should have deduced the winner from his earlier prediction of who would win the tournament. He wrote:

"For all those inside my inbox asking for Afcon semi-final expo, what more do you want? I don tell you which teams go play the final since (so why you dey ask for semi-final prediction again? Do your deductions), I also don tell you who go carry the cup since 14th January.

Kunle Soyege said:

"For the people still asking ... the oracle has spoken...
"As for Super Eagles ...Well done, was really pissed off with earlier performances but they always seem to do just about enough... still not optimal operating at around 70%, waiting for a more balanced approach once we get it right no one can get close in the whole Of Africa.
"As for Gunners, we are the best, a bit of luck here and there could help.
"As for premiership, it's rather surprising how low the quality of officiating and VAR decisions are... they should approach CAF for training on how it should be done... Me thinks the sports betting syndicates are collaboing with the FA in cancelling out goals or awarding out of play goals, especially against Arsenal...Institionalised jagbajantis."
