1. This is how it starts: Almost everyone arrives at the party late
2. You were given one invitation card, but you invite 20 other friends.
3.You call the attention of the people serving food by saying "Please we haven't eaten in this area o!"
4.Look around very well. There is always a PDP section. They get served everything...and in excess.
5. Even when it was obvious that no alcohol was served, you still ask "Don't you have any… Continue

Dr. Conrad Murray needed a big payday when he became Michael Jackson's personal physician last spring.
The Las Vegas cardiologist owed at least $780,000 for settlements against his business, outstanding mortgage payments on his house, delinquent student loans, child support and credit cards. And that doesn't include the $68,000 the distributor of an energy drink says Murray, a one-time business associate, owes for skipping out on… Continue

When asked what she planned to do with the money after she was presented with her cheque in a ceremony on local TV, Mrs Obiakor said she'd give it to a "lucky beggar".
"I have heard a lot of stories about how people win the lottery, and they get broke in the short run and come across a lot of misfortune. I am scared, and so I'll… Continue

Who do you think will win ?
Only for one brief moment did he appear overcome – when he testified about how the US had forced him out of office and how former Liberian allies turned against him. Olusegun Obasanjo, the former Nigerian president who offered him exile in 2003 before allowing his arrest in 2006, was singled out with venom. Asked what he would do, if he found himself in a closed room with him now, Mr Taylor said: "You would see two… Continue

Pulling the microphone toward him, the dapper 61-year-old man in sunglasses creased his forehead, cleared his throat emphatically and introduced himself to the war-crimes court in the Hague: "My name is Dakpenah Dr. Charles Ghankay Taylor, the 21st President of the Republic of Liberia."
Thus began the testimony of Charles Taylor, the reviled warlord and ousted Liberian President, at his landmark trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity. He is facing 11 charges… Continue

Light Up Nigeria: Enough Is Enough

Despite being a country rich in oil, Nigeria’s electricity supply situation is insufficient. “In most parts of the country, darkness pervades and generators have taken over as the source of power”, says Adebayo’s blog. “When the power shuts down – which it does all the time – people sit in the dark or, if they’re lucky, fire up generators… Continue

The movie What the Bleep Do We Know!? challenges us with the question: “How far down the rabbit hole would you like to go?” In the safety of a movie theater seat, it’s tempting to confuse the invitation to experience a glimpse of another dimension with a ticket to a virtual A-ride at Disneyland. Rabbit holes seem such benign things — artifacts of Alice’s grand adventure in Wonderland where one might satisfy one’s curiosity by following a tardy furry little animal. What a delightful way to spend… Continue

I think when the world (or even Nigerian federal officials) talk about Nollywood, they are not thinking about the Hausa film industry, a.k.a. Kannywood. Nollywood is simply the Nigerian movie industry WITHOUT its Hausa component. Surprisingly, Nollywood includes the Igbo and Yoruba productions. The question is: why are Hausa movies not included? In my view, it has to do with the fact that federal officials working in the culture sector - Ministry of Information and its parastatals such as the… Continue
