Nigeria finally picked up a medal in the ongoing Rio Olympics. The Dream Team VI got a bronze in football after beating Honduras by 3 - 2.

Nigeria was the first African country to win Gold in this same event in Atlanta 1996.

They also finished runners-up at the 2008 Beijing Olympics to take silver, where current under-23 coach Samson Siasia also coached the 'Dream Team' in China.

The team had a hurried start in the competition when they barely made it to Rio after an issue with their flight.

In a kind gesture, a Japanese billionaire Dr. Katsuya Takasu gave the Nigerian football team $390,000 for their performance at the event.

Dr. Takasu gave head coach of the team Samson Siasia US$ 200,000 while captain of the team Mikel Obi received the sum of US$120,000.

Nicole M Cullen on engagement to Donnie McClurkin: Not yet engaged but on the road to marriage.

Last week, we reported that Donnie McClurkin was getting married. Matt Crouch, of TBN, had announced that Donnie McClurkin was getting married. 

Admittedly Donnie was surprised about the revelation but sort of responded in confirmation.

Later there were some reports on social media that they were not engaged. Thereafter Donnie clarified the issue by saying that he was yet to pop the question and they were not indeed engaged.

Earlier this week, Nicole corroborated Donnie's latest remarks saying that "There's a protocol that both he and I want to honour. So, are we officially engaged? No," Mullen said. "Are we on the road to marriage? Yes."

According to a Christian Post report,  she said this during her Periscope Bible study on Monday.

McClurkin said Monday on Periscope, however, that he and Nicole will be making a joint statement soon.

During Mullen's Periscope Bible study on Monday, she spoke about the marriage announcement made on TBN's "Praise the Lord" last Thursday, saying that while the couple is "definitely on the road to marriage," they are not engaged.
"There's a protocol that both he and I want to honor. So, are we officially engaged? No," Mullen said. "Are we on the road to marriage? Yes."
