The Nigerian Post Slavery Traumatic Complex

Nigerians, especially Southern and Central (Middlebelt) Nigerians, the core of the Niger-Congo ethnolinguistic family that spreads from Gambia to South Africa, still suffer the scars of the last 500 years of Western imperialism that started from slavery to colonization and now neocolonization. Even though as Fela Anikulapo sang Oyinbo don free you but you never ...

Ifa is not Arabic geomancy, they did not civilize us – ASHE Foundation

ASHE Foundation President, Prince Justice Faloye raised the alarm that Yorubas are at verge of forever losing their identity if they don’t vigorously challenge the recent order given to Olorishas to stop using the 16 sector, erindinlogun system Ifa corpus, containing everything about Yoruba history, culture, philosophy and identity. Academically known as the African Information ...

Akata : Africanization of the African American

As Yorubas question the origin and possible derogatory meaning of the name Yoruba, so are African Americans questioning the origin and possible derogatory meaning of the name Akata derived from Yoruba. These are soul searching times for the Black Race as the world at large moves into cardinal uncompromising positions. From the South African xenophobia ...

Phases of African Unity with French, British and Afroasiatic transgressions

The sacking of the AU ambassador on the orders of the French imperialists provoked anger and criticism, but mainly against the symptoms of the continued subjugation of Black Africans. The French, not only extorts a colonial tax from its African colonies that got pseudo-independence in the Sixties, but it still collects colonial tax from Haiti ...

Perambulation Railways of Nigeria

The announcement yesterday that Nigeria signed an MOU with the Russians over the Lagos-Calabar railway brought me to tears. This was a $12 billion contract signed with China in April 2014, but our Western puppet masters made Buhari revoke it and re-award it to GE USA, and now we are begging Russia. Haaa what a ...

Yoruba/Fulani collective intelligence and the importance of a name on culture and politics.

When Lamido Sanusi called Yoruba politicans areaboys, I wrote him off as a financial jihadist, but overtime I settled down to analyze the message and not the messenger. Individually, an average Yoruba is more educated and intelligent than an average Fulani. However as a collective and organization, I am beginning to wonder whether Fulani are ...

Cultural panacea to global Black problems or Xenophobe go jam Xenophobia

Throughout the Black Race, it is obvious that the culture is the only route to Black freedom and ascendancy. Charity begins at home, but what happens when 99% don’t know the way home? Xenophobe go jam Xenophobia. Imperialists continue to exploit the cultural disorientation of the Black Race, initially through religion and now through biased ...

For the love of God or Money – Spiritual slavery

Do humans really care about God or its about what he can do for them? Why would people drop a certain faith, what are the reasons, if not based on performance. Ultimately, Man made God in his own image of perfection. Original Africans – Niger Congo ethnolinguistic family – dropped their beliefs for those of ...

Much Ado about Yoruba leadership 1

When news broke about Prof Akintoye’s Yoruba leadership declaration, I implored people not to go along the normal reactionary personality politics, but to examine and query the ideological foundations. Unfortunately, the message was taken on a personal and subjective level. I was attacked for equating myself to the erudite professor. Presonally, I love Prof Akintoye. ...

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 ...
