Jennifer Eliogu – Ifunanya : Romance Meets Music

Posted in: , ,

This is honestly one of the best songs I've heard come out of Nigeria in recent times. Her first single, You and I gave a sample of what her sound is - highlife with a hint of R&B - but in this song, she comes into her own, both lyrically and vocally. I love this, and will buy a CD when it becomes available.

Jupiter Strong and The Lunch Lion - A Book For Children

Posted in: , ,

Many African parents at home or in the diaspora, are often on the lookout for new books and other material they can use to teach their children good values and which features characters that look like them. The duo of Frank Edwards and Kelly Abel have come up with an idea for a series of books which I think is brilliant! And the fact that the artwork is so fresh and colorful will make it a double hit for children and parents, I personally love it. The first book in the series is “Jupiter Strong and The Lunch Lion”

“He’s cheating Tolani, I am telling you” Seke screams.

“What? No oh Bolaji won’t do that to me.” I say while trying to assure myself also that my husband of less than two years could not possibly be cheating on me.

“Answer me now, what time does he come home?”

I don’t even know why she’s screaming. I can hardly get my thoughts together.
