Ooni’s Festival Riddles : From Nri with love 1

Suddenly the door burst open, diverting the gaze of the audience that had been fixated on Oonirisa Ogunwusi, who had just returned a few minutes earlier from a seven day spiritual retreat, looking angelic in a white scarf with a single red feather. The people had been looking expectantly towards Oonirisa Ogunwusi for messages and ...

Can a true African be an Abrahamist?

Some believe that you can think like an African, being Afrocentric, as an Abrahamist – Muslim or Christian. Even though many have questioned how one can adopt the God of their enslaver, they are told to get over the evils of the transatlantic slave trade, colonization and neocolonialism. The question is are the philosophical foundations ...

The Nigerian Born Identity

Fulanis claim born to rule while Igbos claim born to be republicians. These perceptions influence the collective aspirations, sometimes positively or negatively. Wrong perceptions formed over time are usually difficult to change, especially when the real cause is not identified in the larger picture. Looking back in history, we can trace both perceptions to the ...

Shackles of the African nation-state of mind.

From Senegambia to Chad and onto Kenya, preparatory wargames have been conducted by Europeans and Afroasians for the final conflict at change of the Great Year, but Original Africans (Niger-Kongo ethnolinguistic family) are too culturally disoriented to know what time it is and notice the winds of change. For the lack of knowledge a people ...

Why Yoruba/Igbo perambulate – Original African geopolitical blind spots.

. It amazes me that some Yorubas and Igbos, the two most populous Original African groups (Niger Congo ethnolinguistic family) could actually believe that the French and Anglo-Saxons of England and USA, the two largest enslavers and colonizers of Original Africans, could actually help and arm them to create a truly free nation. Original Africans ...

SULTAN, CAN’T WE JUST GET ALONG?

Culture is the foundation of politics and economics. The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar is the head of the Fulani and most important, the head of ...

African Bintus, the locally foreign complex

Reading through African history, you can’t but marvel how a section in every Black African ethnolinguistic group tries to justify their existence by claiming foreign origins – Mecca (Yoruba), Jerusalem (Igbo), Yemen (Jukun), Baghdad (Hausa) etc. Yet there is no single genetic, linguistic or cultural trait to justify these outlandish claims. Original Africans aka Niger-Congo ...

Time for Original African Cultural Nationalism

From the above map, the Hausa-Fulani and the Kanuri belong to the Islamist Afro-Asiatic platform and control 2 regions – Northwest and northeast. The rest of the country, the four regions of Southern and Central Nigeria that account for more than two-thirds of the population, are Original African homelands that basically speak a continuum of ...

An Ife-Kwararafa spirit essential to global Black ascendancy

The greatest mental blockage of an Original African is the definition of his identity by foreign cultural platforms. Yoruba, the word that defines the largest original African group, is an Afro-Arabic word. The Yoruba word for Black, Dudu, has been equated to excreta in English. Jukun is an Hausa word meaning person, while the great ...
