Ayodele Arowosegbe's Crimson Clouds

Figures of speech, choice of language, grammatical structure and plot; yum! A reader’s delight! It is no longer the synopsis of Ayodele Arowosegbe’s Crimson Clouds is whetting my appetite already.  

SAVIOR by Best Okoduwa

I am one of those firm believers that the power to steer this blessed Nation Nigeria in the right direction lies in our hands. Yes, it’s quite convenient to point fingers at our leaders who quite honestly deserve every bit of it and maybe even some of those fingers poked in their eyes

Soul Orange Vintage goes to Mente de Moda

Heavy lifting, setting up racks, sorting through boxes of endless vintage pieces, cleaning tables and chairs on an empty stomach yet a broad smile on my face, this was me last Sunday. It was Soul Orange Vintage’s first exhibition at the Mente de Moda fair. This is beginning to seem like a combination of Greek and French; let me explain.

A Little Piece of Us


By Lucky Igbomor

It was sometime in 2005. We had no worries, and no fears. In our eyes, we were the kings of the world and we made the rules.  Life in Uniport had a lot of troubles, but as long as we stuck together, we were untouchable. People often thought that there had to be something behind our surefootedness. We were cocky and confident. We often went places and did thing we shouldn’t have done, not because we were ‘blended’ or connected but because we were blissfully ignorant.

Akaraka (The call of Destiny)

I visited a cinema yesterday and saw X-men. I was gripped till the movie was over. I had often wondered why we did not have our own version of super hero movies, animation, cartoons or comics. One rooted in the Nigerian culture and rich folklore such as Sango the god of thunder, Oya the goddess of lightening and Ogun the god of iron; there are lots more. But guess what, not long after that that movie; I had stumbled on this amazing online comic site called Akaraka. Akaraka is an online bingo weekly comic owned by Afrinolly. I t is written by the talented writer Okorafor Obi and really impressive art by Baba Maco and team.

Bring them Home

Bring them Home

By Jennifer Jude (

When did our children become mere figures?
When did 234 represent the lives of our young ones?
When did our future turn to past?
234 or 274, we want answers.
Bring back all of them: dead and captured
Release them! Release them all! Release our own!
