Ayana Helebo, April 13, 2012

Andrew Dosunmu is one of the coolest Nigerian independent filmmakers. His latest film, Restless City, tells the story of young, nomadic Senegalese immigrant, Djbirl (played by Sy Alassane), an aspiring musician, struggling to survive on the fringes of New York City. When he falls in love with a prostitute (Jamaican-born model/actress Nicole Grey) who works for the local loan shark. This is a story of love and survival with some amazing photography!

Nneka Egbuna, Nigerian-German singer/songwriter, has a great voice and confrontational style. In 2010, she was awarded Best Indigenous Artist in Nigeria at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards. Rolling Stone describes her as “…pure hotness.” Check her out.

Famed author Chinua Achebe on the Occupy Nigeria strikes

In an interview, Nigeria’s premier novelist Chinua Achebe says that corruption is the root of the current fuel-strikes crisis, and that the only way to set Nigeria on a democratic path is for Nigerians to select better leaders, and to punish those who “steal from the state.”

Professor Chinua Achebe currently teaches at Brown University as the David and Marianna Fisher University Professor and Professor of Africana Studies. He is the author of the globally acclaimed novels ”Things Fall Apart”, “A Man of the People”,” Arrow of God” and “Anthills of the Savannah”.

Excellent article…

Discussions Discussion Deforestation SOS
Dan Thompson, Nov. 24, 2011

Deforestation: Nigeria Ranked Worst in the World. But the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) stressed that there was still hope for the country, unless it starts paying urgent and serious attention to nature. The Project Director, IITA, Mr. John Peacock, explained that over 90 per cent of Nigeria’s forest has been lost as a result of deforestation.

Problem is that in poor rural areas of the world, where finding clean drinking water may sometimes be a challenge, deforestation is not the most important topic for day to day survival and well being.

Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice — and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.
