I Will Call Him Sochukwuma: Nigeria’s Anti-Gay Problem

Posted February 19th, 2014 by in AFRiCKA, Articles, Blog, Culture

I have never been a gay rights advocate, but always a human rights advocate. I have found it very difficult to write on Nigeria’s anti-gay law. It’s heartbreaking. 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 […]

Nigeria, Africa, Corruption: Funmi Iyanda’s Open Letter to Nigeria’s New Generation

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

One of the most powerful tracks I have ever loved. Fell in love with Talib for taking it to my hometown. I’m mad though that this vid has only 400K views. Whereas the trash on Youtube gets 5 mil+ [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_c5mDTq3sgo&w=420&h=315] I love it especially because I don’t believe musik of enlightenment should have to […]

Gays in Afrika

Posted June 20th, 2012 by in AFRiCKA, Blog
