BOKO HARAM: THE CONVENIENT FRANCHISE AND MOTIVES

I will start with a question: Do you really believe Boko Haram alone was responsible for all the bomb blasts “Boko Haram” claimed responsibility for? Only days ago, a man was arrested by the authorities while about to set a church ablaze in Yenagoa, capital of Bayelsa State. The said suspect has been confirmed by the State Security Service to be a Christian from Edo State. He had no affiliations with the now convenient chief evil officers of the federation Boko Haram. What if this man wasn’t caught? What if he had been successful with his attempt? What if the call that claims responsibility in the...

NIGERIA: THIS NA TRUE TALK – written by BLACK BIRD

If you are one of those who prefer to read and hear what you want to hear I’d quickly implore you to stop reading before the next full stop beyond which you will be forced to see staggering realities that may shatter your expectations. The next three and a half years are the most important in Nigeria’s history. If you are in doubt of the CIA’s 2015 prediction, you’d better start considering it. The greatest catalyst to a Nigerian disaster is the Nigerian government.   Today’s government in Nigeria inspires nothing but resentment and anger. Apart from subsidy removal where the...

TWO BLIND MICE AND A CAT IN KENYA’S POLITICS

Kenya's political arena is pretty curious a theater, it is an arena in whose all players are animals, a circus with very many wild animals without human handlers. The big jumbo takes a crap on the entrance to the circus, the monkeys snatch biscuits and bananas from the little children making them scream, Mr. Lion is sitting in a corner he gets bored wakes up 'susuus' "(urinates) on his tail and sprays everybody in the arena with caustic urine. The delirium ends before it even begins. However, the in the disorder that reigns in the whole arena the fact that the conductors to this crazy circus...

THERE IS GOLD AND GOLD MINES written by Ajufoh Awele

There are many opportunities in everyday, in every conversation with everyone you meet.A need there, a need here, all are opportunities to meet a person’s need and to make money out of it. You don’t need to travel far to find it, it’s outside your window even now, mayhap, even on your doorstep, I am in fact bold to say that it’s right there in your house. And it’s the little things, I am not talking about inventing another breed of computers or improving on one (that is quite brilliant actually), I am not talking about making a car. There are things; little things that you can do and watch...

NIGERIA: CALL IT A RANT OR WHATEVER. CALL IT THE TRUTH OR NOTHING!

“Think well, say well, act well and Nigeria will go well”, hell Obasanjo said that. He spoke well by saying elections were a “Do or die affair”. Any way, irrespective of what happens, he’n dey laff and even when his daughter lost to MKO Abiola’s daughter at the Ogun State Senatorial primaries, you’d expect he is still laughing – something has to be done because Baba must not be shamed o or else he’ll lose his Kampeness. They have said if peaceful means will not get them to power, then we should live with the violence. Staying true to their promise, violence has become our new norm. It is...

JAY Z PUTS SATANIST “fairy tales” TO REST – Yomi Balogun w/ Japheth Omojuwa

It went on for so long you’d think Jay Z had openly declared himself a Satanist. Millions of google searches combining Jay Z with the words Satanist only goes to prove his reach and influence. In his verse on RickRoss’ Freemason, he went thus… Niggas couldn’t do nothing with me, they put the Devil on me I would have preferred if Niggas would squeeze the metal on me Rumours of Lucifer, I don’t know who trust Whole world want my demise, turn the music up Hear me clearly If y’all Niggas fear me, just say y’all fear me Fuck all these fairy tales, go to hell, this is God...

LOVE DOES COST A THING (EVEN MORE) Written by Japheth J Omojuwa.

“think you gotta keep me iced You don't think I'm gonna spend your cash I won't Even if you were broke My love don't cost a thing Think I wanna drive your Benz I don't Think I wanna floss I got my own Even if you were broke. My love don’t cost a thing...” That if you remember is Jlo’s chorus on her post P.Diddy relationship hit “Love don’t cost a thing”. It sounds true and agreeable to the sense but I beg to differ. When you claim that your love does not cost a thing, it means it would be very much possible for you to fall in love with a mad man… God forbid? I thought as much!...

INSECURE MEN as written by Omolola Paul-Olaleye

I just finished watching a very good Nigerian movie, basically about domestic violence. So the yoruba man beats his igbo wife but she hides it because she claims to be protecting her marriage.hmm. He would beat her and kiss her and beg her and buys her stuffs and they have make-up sex every two weeks. FML!!! Eventually, the guy beat her up when she was 6 months pregnant and the child was gonna be born severly brain damaged, so they had to terminate the pregnancy. Two years later, she still can’t have kids and the guy is following other women. He hits her and she picks a knife and stabs him in the...

She Loves my surname…

Today has not been too eventful like that but I had a bit to share with one of Nigeria's Transformation gurus Olakunle Soriyan. I was appreciative of his love for various kind of sports and he even tried to make me recall some old boxing matches but then you only recall what you always knew so then I had to listen. He spoke about Mourinho, Okocha, National Football League (US), NBA - name it. My conclusion from sharing such a relaxed mood with Olakunle Soriyan had nothing to do with his extraordinary wit and passion for Africa's transformation, it had every thing to do with his common humanity - the natural...
