A trending video that has captivated the attention of many Nigerians on social media shows the moment Super Falcons player Michelle Alozie trashed flowers supposedly received from BBNaija star Neo Akpofure.
The reality TV star Akpofure was rumoured to be dating the dazzling Nigerian footballer and at the same time in a relationship with his colleague, Beauty Tukura.
Alozie, who was recently in action for the Super Falcons as they booked a place in the third round of the 2024 Paris Olympic Games qualifiers, was having none of the rumours.
According to reports, the Houston Dash forward has debunked the claims that she's in a relationship with the BBNaija star.
Alozie's cold reaction towards the show of affection by her supposed lover all but confirmed her stance about the affair.
In the video which has set various reactions from social media users, the 26-year-old Super Falcon threw the bouquet of red flowers whilst laughing profusely.

Nigerians react to Michelle Alozie's flower toss
AdoptedSon said: “I guess Alozie knows she can tràsh that without the camera? But then online validation matters.”
Senor Gatos wrote: “She needs to show that this kind of advances are not welcome. Personally I'm fully in support of this.
“People need to stop forming para social relationships with people they don’t know. Imagine someone you’ve never met buying you flowers. That’s so weird.”
‘This is bad attitude'
“You're appreciated for what you do
Then you decided to trash the gift given to you by a fan. Bad attitude”, said Oluwaseun.
official_rickajecy wrote: “Alozie is a low key savage queen.”
MoonBoyNFG was particularly not impressed by Alozie's laughter, even as he remembers her penalty miss in the FIFA Women's World Cup.
“I’m more pissed that she’s laughing, what’s so funny? You miss our precious penalty in the WC and you still have wings. It’s not your fault.
Michelle Alozie could lose some of her fanbase
Following the burst-up reactions across social media, it is believed that Alozie could lose some of her fanbase in Nigeria.
Football fans are mostly annoyed that she recorded the scene without thinking about the repercussions of her act and the messages it could pass across.
Many believed Alozie could have calmly rejected the admirer's gift of love without bringing it into the public space to spite him.
Alozie has played 17 games for Housten Dash this season and has scored 4 goals.
She's expected to be back in action for Nigeria as the Super Falcons continue their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers next month.
The all-time winners of the competition will host Cape Verde in Abuja on 27 November in the Round 2 of the WAFCON qualifiers.
