Memorial Service For Nelson Mandela at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja

Posted in: , ,

Someone said Goodluck Jonathan was Nigeria's Mandela which I think is ill advised, as only history will prove that. President Jonathan himself who was in Paris when news of Mandela's death was announced was more officious. He declared three days of national mourning with flags to be flown at half mast, which was fitting considering the historical ties between Nigeria and South Africa, and Nelson Mandela n particular. The three days culminated in a memorial service for the late Mandela held yesterday at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja. Mandela will be buried in SA, December 15. May his soul rest in peace.

Cyber Bullying: This Toke Makinwa and Linda Ikeji Issue - Toni Payne

Posted in: , , ,
By Toni Payne

Let me start by saying, we sometimes avoid those touchy subjects because we wish to avoid “drama” but Cyber Bullying is one concept it seems we are yet to get a full grasp on its consequences. Currently, in America there is a full campaign launched against bullying in general, where different celebs have been actively campaigning to stop bullying. We have seen cases of young ones committing  suicide because they couldn’t handle the bullying. I pray and hope things don’t get this far in my motherland, although I suspect it may have and we just don’t document it as much.

Charles Novia's Best Five Nollywood Actresses

Posted in: , , , ,

By Charles Novia

I watched a number of films this year and as many as were being churned out in all the zones, I had to pin-point my search to specifics. As a filmmaker, with many years of experience to my credit, I know good acting when I see it. Acting is inborn while talent is general but depth in acting is few among actors. And so, my blog has decided to award and possibly reward actors with citations and accolades for their art in a preceding and current year. I and my editorial staff think this will be a good and unbiased reward system.
