Neovim weird thing with syntax on

If you ever encounter this message when loading Neovim with syntax on:

".vimrc" 41L, 989C
No neovim module found for Python 2.7.8. Try installing it with 'pip install neovim' or see ':help nvim-python'.

You need to:

sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev
sudo pip install neovim
