In Africa, Nigerians are the “big boys”.
They copulate a lot. Nigeria is the most populous country.
They are the best entrepreneurs. Nigeria is now the first economy in Africa. Lagos alone has a GDP equivalent to that of 25 African countries combined.
They are also lucky: Nigeria is the first oil exporter of the continent.
Everyone loves to trash Nigeria, but how Read more [...]
Last week, while reading comments on an article in the Guardian about corruption in the United Kingdom, I was intrigued by a commentator who wrote “Looking at the Corruption Perceptions Index, the key determinant of corruption seems to be race. Singapore, Japan, Barbados and Hong Kong are the only majority non-white countries in the Top 20. The highest ranking African country Read more [...]
Like Sex, Great conversation only happens in private.
Anyone claiming he has learned anything profound in public conversation is either a fool or an illuminated.
If you love knowledge like you love Sex, go on date with beautiful thinkers.
Spend time and money in arranging more dates like that.
Anything in public domain won’t distinguish you!

I don't know what to think about Barack Obama.
He has just sent an open letter to the Nigerians people asking them to "restrain from violence before, during and after elections".
The intention is laudable. But did he do the same before elections in Indonesia, France, Israel or China?
I'm bothered by the condescending tone he uses when dealing with Africans. In that matter Read more [...]
Mandela and the ANC did a very poor job explaining to south Africans how all Africans fought on their behalf for the end of apartheid.
While countries like France were supporting the apartheid regime, the people from Ghana, Ethiopia, Guinea, Egypt were giving money to support Mandela. But, today French people don't need visa to travel to South Africa while shops opened by Nigerians Read more [...]
We start, God finishes. That is the mental disease crippling progress in Africa.
People start things but never finish them. They expect God to finish their work, obeying to their order through prayers, miraculously accomplishing their wishes.
The name of the disease is "noterminutus lazinus". The cause is unknown, but the main symptom is a mindset characterized by a Read more [...]
Something strange is happening. My recent article in the Guardian has generated millions of conversations since three days.
I, unwillingly, found myself in the middle of something unstoppable.
I'd like to address here one point in the article which seems critical: what does the article means by "White"?

It's rare that southern populations win against northern populations, when it comes to war.
There are only few exceptions in history, and those victories were temporary anyway.
Northern populations envy the art, the sophistication and lifestyle of southerners, to a point of feeling inferior.
The southerners envy the industry, rationality, and discipline of northerners, to Read more [...]
My father is considered a wealthy person. I heard that only from outsiders. At home we have always lived very frugal, maybe too much frugal for my taste.
The result is that I grew up with a keen sense of the value of money, like everyone else in the family. The frugality value might come from our grandfather who was a farmer, but struggled a lot to feed its kids during the second Read more [...]
If a nation is built by its people, investing in people should come first, and everything else would follow.
In 2004, I visited two cousins in the southern part of France. One is medical assistant and the second is a real estate business man. Both are very successfully in their chosen vocation. They share the same secret: people first and everything else would follow.
The Read more [...]
