Nigeria ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on 'Obama interference' in 2015 election bid
Goodluck Jonathan has accused the US administration under Barack Obama
of undermining his failed re-election bid in 2015.
Around the time of the election, Mr Obama made a video address directly to the Nigerian people
and sent his secretary of state, John Kerry, to Nigeria.
The former leader said that while he could not be held responsible for the abduction of 278 schoolgirls from the town of Chibok, he did not remove himself from blame for the failure of the security services to rescue the girls.
More than 100 of the abducted schoolgirls are still missing.
The advert shows a young African, Big Mjohnana, leaving his village in 1650
to conquer his hunger for adventure.
His boat finally docks in Holland in 1651, and he says in South African slang: "Hello, white folk. I like this place. I think I'll call it Eu...rope,"
before stomping his spear to signal the land's conquest.
The commercial ends with an elderly African man in a bow tie
leaving a Chicken Licken outlet, and saying:
"And that is the legend of Big John."
means "no problem" or "no worries" in the Swahili language
which is spoken across East Africa.
Disney first applied to trademark the catchphrase in 1994
- the same year it released The Lion King animation.

this is blatant robbery that should not be allowed to stand.
you don't have to speak the language to know that this is an egregious theft,
one that recalls the way that africa's precious treasures were looted.
