Is it me or is she secretly a comedian when she is speaking? You have to be alert! 🙂


“Religion is man’s pursuit of God. It is man’s definition of God and man defining what God is and because everybody has what their definition is, we have chaos and disorder. When you find religion, you find rules, you find laws and you have weights upon people’s shoulders and people cannot keep those weights because […]


South Africa has been and is under the microscope of the world media for the next few weeks.  It is interesting the different events in the history of this beautiful, restless, rich, diverse and ever evolving nation. From apartheid to the release of Nelson Mandela to the fractions between the Zuma and Mbeki camps to […]


The world has a varied number of lens through which we can view it.  Hence, I am of the opinion that to write about Africa authoritatively and objectively, and of course, if I am honest, subjectively. I need to know her history, her now and gain an insight into her future. Yes, I am Nigerian […]


If there is one thing I hope I am not, it is ignorant. It helps to know what is going on around you and the world you live in. While I do not claim to know it all, I do my best to be as informed as possible while learning everyday. I have learnt that […]


Welcome To Lagos finally came to an end and so has the drama that came with it. Well for now, until the BBC decides to go back in 10 years time. I wonder what the areas they featured would have evolved into and of course, the people?. Where would the likes of Slender, Joseph, Esther […]


Watching the Tutu Talks last night on BBC 4 as they discussed the role of women in Africa and if Women Are Strong Enough To Lead Africa? –  got me thinking about the different positions women occupy in society, yet they have to fight twice as hard to get and stay there. Chaired by Archbishop […]


The last televised debate between the 3 leading political parties in the UK, was a lot of things, including boring. At some point, I got tired of the rhetoric and all three men throwing punches and missing the point. They all came across as childish and short-of-what to say at different points during the debate. […]


“Resourceful, resilient and unbelievably determined,” words used to introduce the second instalment of the documentary, ‘Welcome To Lagos.’ The narrator further on goes to inform us, that the people living in the lagoon and ghettos are adapting to life, the way those of us in the so called, ‘developed world’ could not begin to imagine. […]


If at the next election, we end up with a hung parliament, which two sides of the devil’s camp do you think should form a coalition government or marry the other? Labour Party + Conservative would mean political hell, fights, ‘hulabulala’ and never ending power struggle. Labour  Party + Liberal Democrats, its pretty clear who […]


The BNP is very good at generating its own publicity and playing on the fears many people have. I have stopped trying to figure out how they won a seat at the council level of government and another at the Greater London Authority (GLA.) As if that was not enough to make wonder what the […]


Welcome to Lagos may not be the best film to promote the people and values of Nigeria but it sure says a lot about the majority who believe in hard work and not scamming their way for a living. I know there are many people, myself included who would say, the choice and places of […]


Julius Malema, president of the ANC Youth league in South Africa, first caught my attention when he vowed that he would take up arms for the cause of Jacob Zuma. I believe he made this comment when the battle for the leadership for the ANC was raging between Thabo Mbeki and Zuma faithful camps. “We […]


Dear Zachari Klawonn, You don’t know me and we most likely will never meet but I have heard of you. Based on what I heard, I decided to do some work on Google, these days, you cannot hide anything on the world wide web.  Let me start off by saying, I have the utmost level […]


Dear Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, Allow me some level of honesty. I am not a fan. I have never been and will never be. To be honest, I do not like you. I know that sounds very personal but believe me, you have enough enemies to last you a lifetime, I will not give you the […]


This past week has been very interesting and the situations I have experienced once again, reiterate that in every circumstance, there is a lesson to be learnt. A very promising week and it was well worth it because I got that buzz of journalism all over again by working closely with my editor at the […]


Let me start by saying, I am not an American. I have nothing to gain or lose from the Healthcare Bill that was passed sunday night in the US House of Representatives. However, as an individual who has had to deal with a medical condition, I know for a fact that if I was based […]


I listened to this and thought it was best people decide for themselves. As far as I am concerned, every life counts regardless of race, gender, sexuality, social or cultural background.  I understand that sometimes, as women we have to make painful decisions whether or not to keep our babies. But for those sisters of […]
