My Heart is in Ake Right Now

Posted November 21st, 2014 by in AFRiCKA, Blog, Culture, Events, Nigeria

This post is dedicated to Mercy Omeike, RIP, and all the beautiful people from AABF 2013.   As it is the one-year anniversary of the first annual Ake Festival, my mind runs there frequently this week. There was no precedent for what I experienced at last year’s festival and I imagine there won’t be anything […]

What’s in a Name?

Posted October 21st, 2014 by in AFRiCKA, Blog, Culture

Siyonbola…Swagger to wealth? Stagger to wealth? It depends on whom you ask. I answer to many names. Each of them a reflection of whichever stage I was in at the time, my philosophy about life and culture etc. Some people think I’m running from the law or a 419er, but in actuality I was running […]

Gut-wrenching are the reports of mass attacks on “suspected” gay individuals. It just seems so 1465. Seriously, Nigeria? Are you serious? CAN WE HAVE LIGHT NOW? Now […]

The Best Song Ever

Posted August 16th, 2013 by in AFRiCKA, Blog, Culture, Musik

I loved this song with everything when my Creativity Guru put me on. Just for the danceability of the music and the color of the video. But then I saw this analysis and thought, whoa, the power behind the lyrics and the stories of the singers is a major inspiration for anyone who’s been through […]

The Most Disturbing thing I’ve Ever Seen

Posted July 30th, 2013 by in Blog, Culture, Health & Vitality

This is soooo disturbing, it made me chill to the bone. You’ve been warned. On the kind of morning when you walk out of your home to see your neighbor’s grown man son sobbing into another man’s arms, you feel the isolation of urbanism when you can’t ask if he’s ok even if he’s your […]
