#solidarityisforwhitewomen is currently trending on Twitter. I have no idea if the hashtag has anything to do with the Oprah case but it sure got me thinking. Who decides what racism is? Is it the person claiming to have been discriminated aganst, or the person accused of being racist?

Dear Myne - Why Do I Always Attract The Wrong Sort of Men?

Posted in: ,

Dear Myne, I am sorry, I just have to pour this out. I tried taking my life and the very young guy who generally helps people around the street, saw me and even with my eye half closed (I thought I was dying) the guy still said I should borrow him 2000..  I just woke up so apparently this combination does not work.

Funny Video - Julius Agwu in Mission Impossible

Posted in: , ,


Mission Impossible is a comedy skit by Julius Agwu and  features appearances by Funny Bone and Senator, also comedians. With a title like Mission Impossible, the video could be funnier, but the saving grace turned out to be the reactions of the would-be thieves when they entered the stolen car.

Nollywood Movie Review - The Meeting

Posted in: , , ,

We've seen several movies since our last review, but somehow I've not been moved to do a review until watching Rita Dominic's The Meeting. I am a writer and for me, a good movie starts from the story. The Meeting has the best story and script/screenplay I've seen in Nollywood for a long time, and is certainly the best romantic comedy. Ever. Yes, even compared to Keeping Faith and Letters to a Stranger for older Nollywood lovers like me.
