When we were younger it was easier to make friends because we didn’t have a care in the world. We were still experimenting; we were not yet sure of who we are, we were still trying to find ourselves, so we could not decide what kind of friends we wanted to have. You grow up practically wanting everyone to be your friend, because we don’t know any better.
I remember when I found out who Falz was, he was that funny guy on Instagram who wore glasses without lenses, scrunched his face up as he spoke in a ridiculously hilarious accent. Later, I picked up on his music, which now thinking about it, seems to be about women and sex quite often. I…
The big question now is, can they survive the top till the end of the season? Anyways, it seems clear the title is Liverpool’s to lose despite being just four points clear; Liverpool has shown much maturity as they are now showing patience and admirable team-work
But beyond the elections and projections, approaching the Nigerian question requires more critical lenses and an honesty and discipline to ask and answer difficult, perhaps uncomfortable questions. What is the meaning of democracy in the Nigerian context for example?
The foregoing is perhaps a glimpse into the togetherness and absence of tears that followed the final match which ended one nil in favor of Nigeria’s Super Eagles. Little-known Sunday Mba had struck for the second Sunday running to effectively send the trophy Abuja’s way.
The excitement of being abroad as evidenced in members of those meaningless ‘Association of Nigerians in XXX’ is palpable. Never mind those from families in the lower and upper middle class whose parents have charged them to avoid Nigerians abroad and ensure to enter into wedlock with a foreigner.
I absolutely agree with the American author John Piper who says “It’s really worth the risk, even if the date of December 25 was chosen because of its proximity to some kind of pagan festival. Let’s just take it, sanctify it, and make the most of it, because Christ is worthy of being celebrated in his birth”.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses for example, on the one hand, insists on not celebrating Christmas “because of its pagan origin” but on the other hand, attend their meetings on ‘Sun Days’, a day which gradually shifted from Sabbath to the first day of the week after the resurrection of Christ.
Through his remark, Cameron isolated Corbyn’s fashion sense in order to evade the question of excessive spending at the Oxford NHS Trust, thus invited the country to partake in a rational qualitative critique of Corbyn’s wardrobe. In the book Fashion as Communication, Malcolm Barnard argues that since there are alternative interpretations of garments between the designers and the wearers, meaning cannot be a product of the designer’s intentions.
Last year, I wrote a series of articles tagged ‘Christmas Specials’ which ran through the four Sundays of December, 2017. My intention then, as it is now, is to shed some light on Christmas, the central figure we celebrate annually, and us. But before all that, I’d like to offer my sincere apologies to my…
Unfortunately, the political will to curb the excesses of government continues to be a reluctant venture, enhanced by the nasty shenanigans of the National Assembly of which dishonorably deserves a topic on its own.
And to us, Fela was the trailblazer, proof that you could forge your own path and be whatever you choose to be and that you don’t need to limit yourself to society’s restrictions, that being different is not an ailment.
Many are all too aware that the sacrificing of Minister Adeosun was only but a convenient tool in a seemingly fixable rupture. There are just too many instances when the government would have carried on indifferently.
