Posted in: , , ,

Are you usually out of ideas for Sunday outings? The recent resurgence in the appreciation of the arts inspired the birth of Live Theatre on SundayTM, a repertory project with the intent to promote theatre going culture in Nigeria. They kicked off in April 2008 and the first season of the project featured the production of Song of a Goat and The Wives' Revolt written by J.P.Clark- Bekederemo starring Gabriel Afolayan, Omonor Imorbhio, Ego, Ireti Doyle, Yinka Davies and some other actors.

Don't miss Season 2 featuring the production of Grip Am, a pidgin English comedy, written by the Late Ola Rotimi with such celebrities as Gordons, Matse Uwaste, Igos,Wale Amusa, Debra Uche Nwaohiri and others. The event will hold at the New Unity Centre, 28, Isaac John Street, Ikeja GRA, Lagos, from Sunday February 12, 2012 and through all Sundays to Easter Weekend, April 6-8.

Oyi Remix: Flavour ft. Tiwa Savage - Romance Meets Music

Posted in: ,
This is a new feature where I'll be sharing the music videos of love songs I'm feeling. This one, Oyi (cold in Igbo) is a collabo between Flavour and Tiwa Savage. Flavour, I never heard of until recently when a blogger was gushing over him. In one of her recent posts, Nwunye describes how pants disappear at concerts. I don't really find him that much of an eye candy, but his music is kinda earthy, good if you like highlife, which I do. On Tiwa, I like her Kele Kele Love, but the others and her videos are just there.

This video is a light-hearted one, not much of a story, but they were obviously having fun. I loved the last moments where they were laughing and Flavour was goofing about. Enjoy...

That Which Had Horns - Miriam Shumba (Guest Author)

Posted in: ,

Miriam Shumba is originally from Zimbabwe and though she now lives in the United States, her second book, That Which has Horns, is set in her native country. She says writing the story was like going home and while she is inspired to write about each place she visits, mostly, stories from Africa come more naturally. Miriam is also a Christian and was excited to find books with Christian themes and characters when she moved to America, and now that is what she feels comfortable writing too. They inspired her and she felt their power in how the characters trusted God to overcome and have victory. Enjoy our interview below;
