Posted January 4th, 2014 by in AFRiCKA, Articles, Blog, Womanism

The importance of Funmi Iyanda’s piece lies not in its eloquence, not in its boldness, for Funmi Iyanda has long been bold, eloquent, sagacious. All things modern revolution. The importance is in the highlighting for the world that there is in fact a Nigerian intellectual elite that brinks on revolution. It is her charge for […]

How Rich People Think

Posted December 22nd, 2013 by in Articles, Blog, Business

Intro: Had to repost this, very useful information for those of us who want to “think and grow rich”. Many people will be shocked to find out I’m not a communist. I wouldn’t classify myself as a capitalist either, though. I believe in change-makers using wealth to help people more so than operating off the […]

In the last three to five years, on every major European designer label, there […]
