Rebellion Against Knowledge is the Cause of Corruption and Destruction in Africa


Hosea 4:6:-
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."

The worst form of rebellion is the rebellion against knowledge and wisdom. Which is most widespread among blacks in Africa. Imagine how horrible and terrible things would have been in Africa without Western education.

NDDC And The New Realities: A Vote For The Interim Management Committee



*NDDC AND THE NEW REALITIES: A VOTE FOR THE INTERIM MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE*

Henry Kissinger, a renowned former US Diplomat said that the success of any government is its ability to bring about new realities. When President Buhari in his quest for a new beginning, ordered a forensic audit into the activities of NDDC from inception to date, little did political influencers in the region imagine it would come to fruition. When he took a further step by directing the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs to inaugurate an Interim Management Committee to create the enabling environment for the audit, they broke the secure locks of hades and unleashed ancient demons to invade television houses and game newspaper columnists with vile propaganda.

New Global Breakthrough for Nollywood Before Christmas



New Global Breakthrough for Nollywood Before Christmas

Nollywood is the first indie film industry in Africa started by guerrilla filmmakers in southern Nigeria in the 1990s with the groundbreaking blockbuster movie "Living in Bondage" in 1992. It was  followed by thousands of other movies shot on video and widely sold on the streets; pirated across the borders to the neighbouring countries in West Africa and finally shared on the internet through #YouTube and other online platforms. It was called "Nollywood"  by Norimitsu Onishi,  who was the Chief of The New York Times's southern Africa bureau, based in Johannesburg in 2002 before the Africa Magic series of Nollywood was launched by M-Net of the Multichoic group on #DStv on July 14, 2003 and making all the popular Nigerian stars household names in millions of homes in Africa.

Breast Cancer and the Connection with Oral Hygiene




WE ALL HAVE MOUTHS! RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BREAST CANCER AND ORAL HYGIENE 

Comedy is now a multi-billion naira industry in Nigeria. A new couple could pay a comedian one million naira to perform at their wedding, but argue furiously against paying a surgeon one hundred thousand naira to perform a caesarian section to save two lives. Comedy is also the cheapest possible start-up, because the mouth is the sole physical investment of the trade. Thus a popular comedian rejoices in the name of Basket mouth. Another is called Elenu, meaning ‘mouth owner’ in the Yoruba / Anago language. But although we are not all comedians, we are all elenus – we all have mouths and our mouths are far more important for our overall health than we may realize.

October is dedicated to advocacy and creating awareness on Breast Cancer, the most common cancer in women globally (including Nigeria). Breast cancer also occurs in men, but it is 100 times more common in women. However, because most people are not aware that breast cancer can occur in men, the disease tends to be picked up much later and is often more fatal in men than in women.

The Intellectual Ignorance of The Chairman of The Nigerian Oscar Selection Committee


The Intellectual Ignorance of The Chairman of The Nigerian Oscar Selection Committee (NOSC)

The selection of Genevieve Nnaji's directorial debut, "Lionheart" as Nigeria's entry for the 2020 Academy Awards has confirmed my dismissal of the so called Nigerian Oscar Selection Committee (NOSC).

Anyone who says Nigeria "couldn't make any submissions in previous years due to unavailability of qualifying films" is intellectually challenged and ignorant of the history of Nigerian films and cinema since 1970 to date; ignorant of the films of Francis Oladele, Adamu Halilu, Dr. Ola Balogun , Tunde Kelani, Newton Aduaka, Biyi Bandele, Izu Ojukwu, Jeta Amata and others who made critically acclaimed films before and after the emergence of the home videos of Nollywood.  


So, no Nigerian filmmaker has made an Oscar worthy film until Genevieve Nnaji made her "Lionheart" in 2018?
