If you lived in Benin, am so sure you’ll know the Igun Bronze Casters…

Glitters of yellowish-brown lights whispered off handcrafts of ingenious minds. Crafts of staffs, swords and many masks, they were; While some others were of human forms that tell stories of ancient times, others happily flaunted their exotic and ostentatious designs to anyone who cared to stare.

The Vernacular Architecture of Abua-Central area, Rivers State, Niger Delta

A bell-less belfry juts into the clear blue skies, spanked on all sides by the merciless rays of the soaring sun. The mud-brick stones of the aged church beneath fortifies the ostentatious poise of the belfry, while its dexterously crafted fascias splash rows of spectacular shadows on its asbestos walls. This is the oldest church…

In the land of Igarra, Edo State, rumbles a gracious, yet unknown waterfall…

In the land of Igarra, Edo State, rumbles a gracious, yet unknown waterfall. Along the course of River Pankasha it forms, just as its dust-coloured waters plunge down a steep 6m-high and 10m-wide rock-face of foliated quartzite. The landscape that surrounds Pankasha River is a stylish fabric of grass land and punctuations of small trees…

Coals of fire, dancing on Sambreiro River

Coals of fire, dancing on Sambriero River, Bubbles of lightening, sitting on plush sofas of gently bouncing waters. It is sunrise, the sun has begun to soar like a kite in the skies, And shadowy pockets of mangrove thickets are bathed with its rising light. The world beneath, rivers and creeks, are still asleep, Oh…

Kill another African Softshell Turtle and you’ve killed another Niger Delta pikin!!!

“Still, laid the lifeless carcass of a beautiful turtle upon the cold floors of a wooden batcher in Elem-Sangama village, Soku, in the Niger Delta. It was in the harsh claws of a fisherman’s net that it was caught, conquered and dragged ashore by a rustic dug-out boat hewn from the sempervirent mangrove forests cloaking…

Healing from the Bowels of a Stygian Cave

Within the belly of Omi-Ìwò cave, the hydraulic sound of a crystal clear spring mixed with the whirring calls of resident bats disvirgin the air. A blinding beam of light pierces the torn rock and illuminates a small pool of water within the cave, from which flowed the stream which the people call “Ìwò”. The…

As the streets of Victoria Island, Lagos bustled with ‘ponpons’ and ‘hons’ of traffic, so did the great waves of the Atlantic coast rumble against the bleached sands of the Kuramo Beach.
