Dear Nigerians, we owe a sense of responsibility to ourselves. And so, the next time we offer our very colourful show of concern when a bomb goes off in France, or a nuclear leak in China, or flood in Florida, let us also speak out in concern when a suspected thief is beaten, molested and burnt in Lagos.
Like the first volume, The Wedding Party’s pre-Christmas release was an effective strategy plugged into the spending impulse that comes with the season, which of course contributed to its huge financial turnover. And with that formula and from all indications, Destination Dubai is set to replicate that cinematic success…
I know of people who have resorted to extreme measures just to find relief. A colleague of mine told me she had to pee in a bottle and carry home to dispose of it? My mouth was as wide as yours when she told me. I couldn’t believe it.
Sculpting and chiseling your body is good, it’s appealing to the eyes but if you have nothing to offer in terms of character, integrity, patience, loyalty and all the valuable non-physical stuff, when it comes to relating with other people, then of what use is your sculpted and well dressed body?
Beyond my education, achievements & accolades, I am in Love with Love & I am one who takes pride in her appearance. A day in these Victoria Island streets is enough to teach you that in fact, PACKAGING IS EVERYTHING.
I think it’s incredibly ironic when these cats praise Kendrick Lamar for dropping To Pimp A Butterfly, critically acclaimed as one of the best album of all time, an album that talked about various issues affecting Blacks most notably, the oppression by police officers and a similar problem is happening in your backyard and all you can do is tweet a hashtag.
Is there any passenger that thinks that they should confront officers when they stretch out their hand to collect ‘white’ (as fifty naira is called)? Is it fear that prevents this? Or is it a it’s-none-of-my-business attitude?
Christians would say this was the Resurrection Power. Should we believe them? I would say yes. This is because everybody believes the grave represents death. But for Jesus it was the exact opposite.
It had been four months since Andy had been with Femi and Oreniwan but it felt like a year. Food had become harder to find and they were sure the world had finally run out of any kind of food. They hadn’t dared to venture beyond the safe sectors yet because they were certain the food in the other sectors would certainly be contaminated.
These men accurately paint the picture of the Cock that tirelessly runs after the Hen to subdue her. And that’s exactly what they are– chickens! Chickens scared of being real men. Chickens so impulse-driven and lacking in self-control, that they live in close parallels to the animal kingdom.
History, archeology, ancient non-Christian literatures and every available written record all thoroughly attest to the fact that Jesus was unrivalled in this ability in the history of the nabi and Hasid traditions before him and in the entire history of mankind.
I played the role of friend for a few years, until my affection began to border on obsession. Looking back, I feel that I could probably have killed for Azeeza, if only so she would give me a chance. I never asked for that chance though. I did not think it was possible.
After a while everything I did was wrong, I was sleeping too late at night, charging my laptop too much, staying in too much, sleeping strangely, anti social, strangely behaved etc. I would be home on some days and I would get the silent treatment or an attitude.
