Don’t you just love the sound of drums and to be precise, African drums. They have the ability to take you to a far away land, create rhythms that get you in touch with nature and make you dance like there is no tomorrow. I personally think if you listen closely, there is something spiritual […]

RANT 101: Watching this interview makes me angry. I am one to enthuse about giving people a second chance but every bone in my body says Ibrahim Badamosi Babaginda does not deserve and should not be given a second chance. Nigeria, Nigerians and the world don’t owe him and should not give him one. In […]

If foul moods can be measured in degrees, be it the Fahrenheit or Celsius format, then the one I was in this past sunday morning was way over 100, as far as both forms of measurements are concerned. I am of the opinion that the foul mood with which I woke up constituted of weeks […]

Well, can you believe that less than a year after that interview, her dream came true. Bunmi sent a prospectus featuring her designs, which fuses her African and western heritage to […]

This is sickening and once again proves ignorance is truly a disease. A sick mind is dangerous in the hands of a man with no sense of self or respect for humanity.  The mother in me is boiling at the destruction of innocent souls who cannot begin to understand why they are being persecuted. Imagine […]

Though I have a lot to do today. I have been flicking from one news channel to the other, just to see what they are all saying as the world remembers 9/11.  One thing is certain, I am overloaded with information and I have now had enough. It is newsworthy but I am not sure […]

Dear Pastor Terry Jones, Let me start off by saying, I’m fully aware the bible says, “Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm.” However, believe me when I say, if I were in a position to ‘club’ or ‘brush’ you across the head, I would. When I’m done, I would ask God for […]
