Education as tool in birthing new Nigeria

Book Title: The Hope

Author: Uwana Michael

Publisher: EndFront Express Ventures

Year of Publication: 2011

Number of Pages: 104

Reviewer: Oladipo Kehinde

 

 

T

he Hope is a book that envisions better tomorrow for Nigeria and other African countries. Every change that comes to any nation comes with a price. Change is inevitable. The author tries to make Nigerians, Africans and, indeed, black in Diaspora believe there is possibility in impossibility.

 

 

The first place we can make that possible is in our thought pattern. Doubting mind is an enemy of progress. The author says: “Reasons why some people may think that the Nigerian dream is a daydream or impossibility is because of the previous challenges the country has encountered.” page 10.

 

 

We have to change our attitude for the nation to move forward. Every nation needs a progressive vision. The leaders need the followers vice versa. A shared vision is a fulfilled mission. The country is waiting for the sun of hope.  Michael urges the nation to fast not from food but from thinking wrong thoughts. The youths are parts of the transformational change the country waits. A reading nation is a progressive nation. The author puts across Chief Obafemi Awolowo assertion: “Any people that are starved of books, especially the right type of books, will suffer intellectual malnutrition, stagnation and atrophy.” page 12.

 

 

Education is an indispensable tool in birthing the dream of a new Nigeria. Thinking is the business of life. The book has 20 chapters.

 

 

Each chapter has food for thought, quotes and reflections. The diction is lucid and specific. The cover design has pictures of our past and present presidents.  The cover design has green background which shows the future of this country is green.  Hope is everything. Dream is a product of one’s imagination. Michael urges Nigerians to hope for the best.

 

 

He affirms that it takes the mind of a man to achieve his dreams and ultimately live a purposeful life. Knowledge from books helps a nation to progress. Government should allocate fund for education. The author cites Professor Chibuzo Nwoke’s statement that, “If we know so much with all the conferences and workshops conducted, why Nigeria is still the way she is?” page 25. This is a question we should ponder on. We have to think of the way forward.

 

 

The author says: “People talk about how and what they know will move Nigeria forward, but they leave it at the discussion table only to go back to their normal lifestyle.” page 25. The author opines that organisations and religious groups should engage in youth empowerment projects. Government should create employment opportunity, stable power supply and friendly policies to achieve this lofty vision.

 

 

The author also advises the youth thus: “I bet you, if there is no job in the country, you would still be you; as the case may be; but you would eventually create a job.” page 29.

 

 

 

 

This is a motivational book on how to discover a new meaning to life; survive tough times, manage ones emotions, faith and spirituality, national and personal development and a special feature on Africa. This book is a must read for all Nigerians.

 

 

The author is a freelance writer, singer, value-entrepreneur and a trained administrator.  He’s the initiator of the Mission to Nigeria Project and a minister.

MY LAST RELATIONSHIP FAILED BECAUSE I BECAME A BITCH –DOLLY NWADUBA

MY  LAST RELATIONSHIP FAILED BECAUSE I BECAME A BITCH –DOLLY NWADUBA

Nollywood actress, Dolly Nwaduba, in this interview with LANRE ODUKOYA shared her journey in the movie industry, her unforgettable heartbreak and plans to have a secret destination wedding at Vegas or Hawaii

 

 

Could you tell us more about yourself?

 

I’m Dolly Nwaduba, a writer, producer and actor. I’m from Aniocha south, in Delta State.

 

I have been in the movie industry professionally, two years now. I came back to Nigeria in 2017 after my graduation from the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles and produced my first movie “Lights Out” and thus began my journey in Nollywood.

 

Was that your first experience?

 

It was quite different from my experience in Hollywood.

 

Because, I had initially worked there for a year after graduation. Things are done differently here, so, I had to learn a whole lot from that first movie I wrote and produced here. Production in Nigeria is easier to achieve, but at the same time more tedious to execute.

 

It’s a bit complicated, really.

 

What were the challenges you faced?

 

First, it was the casting.

 

As a writer, I’m very particular about who plays every character in my stories. But I had to learn to cast actors who would not only fit my character description, but also guarantee my money back. There’s also this “returnee problem ” I had because I went to a film school abroad. People just automatically assume you think you’re better than them so they try to openly correct and sometimes even humiliate you for not knowing how they “run things around here. ”

 

They forget you have a whole different experience from what they have. Some even challenged and accused me of going to waste money overseas when I could have just learned the ropes of movie production from under one of the prominent producers/directors for much less. It was crazy.

 

How did you pick your cast?

 

I usually have particular actors in mind when I’m writing. So, when I’m ready to shoot, I’ll contact these actors, and if they’re available, we work together. If not, I’d find suitable replacements. Do you have a new project? Oh yes, I’ve written and produced four movies since then. I’m currently working on the fifth.

 

I just finished one few weeks ago titled “one wish”. It was directed by Tchidi Chikere and will be out by next month.

 

 

Could you tell us more about your new project?

 

It’s an unconventional love story that I wrote last year after a very bad breakup. I was really depressed and had a lot of really messed up thoughts in my head but for the fear of going to prison or worse. I had to refrain myself from going to the extreme.

So, I did what every great writer would do. I poured out my thoughts on the pages of my book, and being blessed as an actor, I got to carry out my very evil plot of kidnapping my ex on his wedding day without fear of actually going to jail for it.

 

I got the best cast ensemble and the best director to tell this beautiful heartbreak story of mine.

 

Are you saying it is a true life story?

 

‘One Wish’ is my actual love story.

 

Well, except for the ending, which will shock everyone.

 

What led to the break up?

 

 

Truthfully, I became a bitch. It was my very first time actually falling in love with someone other than myself, so it consumed me that I became possessive to the point of obsession I think. I was constantly snooping around and nagging.

 

He met someone else who started giving him the peace I used to give him when we first started dating. I’m not saying he didn’t have his own faults, he did.

 

But I contributed majorly to the breakup. I literally drove him nuts.

 

How did you feel seeing him move on?

 

I felt really bad. The girl was so hot! I used to stalk her Instagram page. She’s the perfect slay queen! Whereas I struggle to even put on powder on my face. I felt so bad. What if he finds out about the movie, don’t you think he would know you are not over him yet? Well, I really don’t care what he thinks anymore. I’m so over him.

 

But yeah, of course he’ll know once he sees the movie or read this interview So, who are your cast and is it a cinema movie? Well, I of course played “Naomi” the heartbroken one.

 

 

Frederick Leonard played Philip my ex, Diana Okoh played my not so smart best friend who’s ready to kill for me.

 

While Lotachukwu played one of my best friends who happens to be my only voice of reason (the sensible one among the trio) and Ada Karl also known as Ada Slim played my no nonsense elder sis, who would rain down hell on anyone for her naughty sister who she sometimes avoids as well. And no, it’s not a cinema movie.

 

 

I’m not ready to produce a cinema movie yet. I would be by the end of the year though. It’s all in the works currently.

 

 

How do you get finance to fund your projects?

 

I financed myself and some were financed by private investors. One Wish was produced by my friend and record label owner “Philip Samuel ” the CEO of Make Sound From Minds Records (MSFM Records).

 

He’s someone who believes in me and wants to see me grow, as well as make money too. Are you currently in a new relationship? As much as I’m very open about my life, there are some things I still like to keep private.

 

My relationship status is one of them.

 

So when the time comes, what kind of a man do you desire as a ‘husband material’?

 

All I really want in my husband is high intelligence level, at least higher than mine. Kindness, generosity (he must spoil me with gifts oh) and tenacity. I don’t want a man who will easily give up on our marriage at the slightest turbulence.

 

With me, it’s going to be for better or worse you know. Well, hopefully mostly better.

 

When is the wedding bell expected to ring?

 

Again? Private please.

 

 

Well, my wedding is going to be very quiet! Probably a Vegas or Hawaiian ceremony. Just the two of us. So no one will probably know until our anniversary.

 

Oh dear! The things I want are sometimes so awkward. I hope he feels the same way too, make I no go enter one chance

‘Udiroko Festival’, a celebration of cultural essence of Ado people – Oba Aladesami

‘Udiroko Festival’, a celebration of cultural essence of Ado people – Oba Aladesami

The annual Udiroko Festival is a celebration of the cultural essence of the Ado people dating back to the establishment of Ado Kingdom, says Oba Rufus Adeyemo Aladesami, the Ewi of Ado Ekiti. He also stressed that the Festival is a ritual free celebration predicated on history, culture, and traditions of Ado Ekiti.

 

The Monarch stated that during the festival which commenced on Monday and will end on August 20, at the Ewi Palace, Ado Ekiti, there would be no deity worshipping, idolatry and secret ceremonies.

 

The Ewi, who spoke in Lagos penultimate Wednesday, said ‘Udiroko Festival’ is purely the celebration of the cultural essence of the Ado people, and that it has nothing to do with rituals, fetishes and idolism. “I wish to emphatically state that the foregoing articulation of the historical pedigree of Udiroko Festival and its celebrations over the years in Ado Ekiti is for the purpose of further educating the public.

 

“Thus is done with a view to fostering its acceptability as one of the components that form the tripod history, culture and tradition) upon which has been so from the inception of the Ado Kingdom,” he said. He assured that the organising committee has put in place effective security measures to ensure smooth hosting of the festival.

 

He urged all sons and daughters of Ado Ekiti at home and in Diaspora to come home for the new year celebration of Udiroko Festival. “It is hoped that the Udiroko Festival would gain international recognition that would propel it amidst its cultural peers in other kingdoms and climes within and outside Nigeria,” he said.

 

Also, part of the activities at the festival is the provision of medical free checks for people. Director General Ekiti State Arts Council, Wale Ojo Lanre, said: “The council has the full mandate of the government of Dr. Kayode Fayemi to promote our culture as well as our core values in order to evolve a state that manifest the vision of its founding fathers; this explains the passion and commitment of the council towards a collaboration with communities to transform their festivals into prosperity instrument for the people.”

 

He noted that since it is within the purview of the council to inject critical innovation into the original manners of celebrating festivals in Ekiti, ‘we initiated the world press conference in furtherance of the strategic marketing of some Ekiti festivals.’

 

“We have noticed the energy and vigour with which the Ewi and the people of Ado prepare and celebrate Udiroko annually, hence our decision to partner Ado Ekiti people to rebrand the festival, globalised its celebrating, seek marketers for the festival so that it becomes self sustaining and involve Ado Ekiti indigenes in the diaspora as well as those outside the shores of Ekiti,” Ojo-Lanre said.

Dancing has taken me to at least 60 countries across the world – ‘Dayo Liadi

Dancing has taken me to at least 60 countries across the world – ‘Dayo Liadi

Dayo Liadi stunned Nigerians as a professional dancer long before the likes of Kaffy even came on the scene. Since featuring impressively in the video of the popular song, “Olori Oko” by Infinity over a decade ago, Nigerians have forgotten about him. In this interview with ADEDAYO ODULAJA, the talented choreographer said it is very unlikely he will dance in another video

 

How right is it to say dancing is your comfort zone?

 

I have done so many kinds of stuff; I have worked with so many artistes all over the world. I have done contemporary dance forms, musical dance forms, African modern dance forms and creative dance forms, among many others. I don’t think I have a comfort zone when I am working because I experiment a lot and try different things and different kinds of stuff in what we regard as performances.

 

How do you determine the dance form to perform at an event?

 

Generally, we have dance forms from different parts of Africa and they are created from North Africa, East Africa, West Africa and all other places. What we do is to infuse them into the event we are organising.

 

 

Noting your training and life of dancing, how long have you been involved with it and would you say it is your means of livelihood?

 

I have been dancing for 30 years.

 

The first five years was for training. So, professionally I have been dancing for 25 years.

 

This is all I do; I don’t do anything else apart from dancing. It must have sounded strange that a man settled for dancing as a means of livelihood.

 

 

What’s the story behind it?

 

I am from a dance family. My dad was a beautiful dancer; my mum was a dancer too. I found myself in a family where my parents were dancers.

 

When we had parties in my family, it was like a competition between me and my brothers and sisters.

 

The boys competing with the girls and the girls competing with the boys. It was fun. I am from a fun-filled family.

 

When it comes to remuneration, what is it like for dancers?

 

 

I wouldn’t want to talk about how I am being paid for security reasons, but I am grateful to God. I have been to 67 countries around the world since I started and I am well paid. I don’t do small shows. I only do it to encourage young artistes; I love encouraging young artistes to help them boost their stuff.

 

What is the story behind your discovery a professional dancer?

 

 

I was discovered at the age of 16 by some foreigners who came to Nigeria.

 

 

Immediately after my secondary school education, I got a scholarship to go and study dance in France at Centre Choregraphique National De Nantes (National Choreography Cen-   ter of Nantes).

 

 

After that, I got another scholarship to study dance at the International School of Dance and Choreography in Senegal. Upon completing that, I got yet another to study in Danceweb in Vienna, Austria. I got so many really but the last one was almost 10 years ago when I studied at a university in Korea.

 

Would you prefer to dance live or in a music video?

 

They are both memorable. I only did one music video because I am not a music video dancer by training. I did Olori Oko because I wanted to prove a point to music video dancers.

 

Was the point about challenging stereotypes or seeking a new terrain?

 

The point was that you can take dancing away from the ordinary.

 

 

That was the reason I accepted to appear in “Olori Oko” and it was a highly experimental dance routine. I just wanted to prove a point and it was well accepted by Nigerians and Africans alike.

 

 

So would you be willing to feature in another music video like that?

 

I wouldn’t want to do another music video like Olori Oko.

 

 

I would rather be a dance consultant for any other music video and help them achieve it as a dance consultant and a dance director. I am not a music video dancer.

 

 

My training is to perform live and conceptualize different dance ideas around the world, in Africa and in different countries. I love music videos but only if I am well paid. Musically, videos don’t give good money and that is the major reason why I don’t go for it. I go for mega projects.

 

Knowing it helps one’s fitness and all, does your kind of dance have any health implications? If you don’t take care of your body, it will fight back. When you are dancing, you have to be careful, don’t dance with everything, but use everything.

 

You have to dance with care.

 

Which other dance forms and routines have you toured the world with?

 

I have toured “Ori, When The Gods Go Crying” and “In Imagination”.

 

Some are my own choreography concepts while I co-choreographed others with other choreographers from abroad. I do a lot of co-choreography projects between Europe and Africa, most especially, South Africa, Uruguay France, Germany, and several others.

 

How would you rank yourself in Africa?

 

 

I would say that I am one of the best. We have so many great dancers in Africa.

 

Some are my senior because they trained me.

 

There are legendary choreographers in the world and I always see them as my inspiration and mentors. With all you have seen and done, is it likely to get to the time you retire? Dance is my life, so I am not thinking of quitting now or in future.

Flattering pink agbada

Flattering pink agbada

Interestingly, pink is no longer for the female gender alone.

 

Fashion and its versatility have made it possible for men of style to step out dashingly in pink outfits without committing any fashion mistake.

 

Agbada is a popular, flowing, wide sleeved robe and the Agbada style has become regular attire for men and women for special events like weddings.

 

 

While the idea that pink clothes are just for women has long been considered outdated, many men still find it challenging to rock this colour.

 

Pink agbada can add a fantastic dash of diversity to your wardrobe, injecting colour while maintaining sophistication.

 

Pink agbada is stylish and can flatter any skin tone with one of its many shades. So, don’t let pink agbada trend pass you by. Instead, embrace this fantastic colour with an easy-to-wear yet highly dramatic agbada.

 

 

Men dressed in agbada attires are looked at with much admiration because the attire is unique and extraordinarily cool. If you don’t already own one, you should add a pink agbada to your wardrobe immediately because not only is it a fantastic alternative to your usual white or blue agbada, it can also be highly flattering and versatile.

 

TIPS

All you need to do is pick the right shade. For an understated appearance, choose a washed-out or dusky pink.

 

For a bolder look, select a sorbet shade or vibrant watermelon hue. But, be sure also to consider your complexion to pick the most flattering option.

 

If you are looking for a way to ease yourself into wearing pink, a striped shirt may be the way to go.

 

Pink is surprisingly versatile and can work well with many other colours.

 

In particular, subdued tones, such as navy, black, white and grey tend to pair best with this somewhat statement hue.

 

However, don’t be afraid to experiment with your colour combinations. Pink can also work with a range of other colours, including cream and even dark green.

 

A well-fitting cap may be all you need to finish off your pink agbada looks.

 

Accesorize appropriately; nothing screams dapper with pink agbada than sleek black shoes.

Complete your dapper looks with polka doted necktie

Complete your dapper looks with polka doted necktie

Is there anything that makes a man well dressed and dapper like necktie? Necktie when well paired it gives the wearer a defined gentleman’s look in a blink of an eye.

 

Ties are probably the smallest fashion accessories yet very functional style item a man can have in his closet.

 

A tie does a lot more than just decorate your neck and shirt: when people see you wearing a colourful, polka doted ties, they will take notice of the fact that you went the extra mile, and will terat you accordingly.

 

Ties complete a man’s appearance, add style to it and set the best apart from the crowd.

 

Wearing a tie was a symbol of professionalism in the past, and nothing has changed today in the formal sense but necktie is becoming more than just a formal business accessory.

 

There are various elements to consider while making the choice of what goes with your polka dotted tie.

 

Getting yourself a neckwear that is of the right proportion for your body and is of a colour and pattern that works well with your shirts, is the first thing. Many men wear striped neckties for business.

 

Polka dots, especially small and intricate patterns, have become quite popular and are perfect for business, leisure, and even semi-formal events. While shirt and suit tend to be more conservative in terms of colour, it is the necktie that allows men to display almost any colour without compromising a professional look.

 

Even though it is acceptable and even fashionable to show colour on your tie, avoid too many colours in one design.

 

Therefore, when wearing a polka dotted necktie, make sure that only two colours are present; that is one on the background and one on the dots.

 

TIPS

 

 

zzSolid colour dress shirt will be the easiest solution for polka doted necktie.

 

Polka dots are considered a “playful” pattern and the larger the dots the more casual it will appear.

 

Small patterns have a trendier and fashionable appearance.

 

Polka dotted neckties should not be worn for very serious functions such as funerals or strict black-tie events.

 

You might think wearing any kind of tie will make you appear professional, but that’s not always the case.

 

For formal occasions, colours should be neutral (black, grey, burgundy, mauve or blue).

 

For more of a casual business professional setting, a silk knit tie with weave polka dots pattern can also do the trick.
