A Nigerian’s quest for Fuji, the begininig of ‘razzness’?

Yesterday, I was chatting with Femi Osewa, a great friend of mine, and he said he’s falling in love with Naija’s Fuji Music. I felt it was funny but he confidently refuted my reservations on the music genre. I felt he had a point with his ‘Proudly Naija’ part of his argument. So he decided…

Igbara-Oke Petroglyphs- Mysterious Inscriptions on a rock in Igbara-Oke, made by an Ancient Warrior

  I have driven past the small sleepy town of Igbara-Oke when travelling to Ikogosi Warm Springs in Ekiti State, and never knew the town hosted such a great historical relic as this. However, someone from this town wrote me a mail and suggested I pay a visit to his home town to see the…

Naija Tribes and Their Crazy Styles- Let’s Package Naija!

The other day I was talking to a friend of mine online who I recently made acquaintance with and are fast becoming good friends with and I automatically assumed that he was either Yoruba or Igbo (like many of my Naija friends) but to the shock of me I learned he was Binis or Edo…

” …And Nigerian girls are beautiful too”- A Kenyan sista writes

A Kenyan and Egusi soup- “I couldn’t but lick my fingers!”

I know by the time you hit the end of this post you’ll definitely say this Kenyan girl has gone “kolo” but I can’t help it.  I just love Nigerians and the most shocking part of it is that every time I think of them I think about their food – hot and spicy and…
