”Stop getting angry with the Freezes of this world. They are not your problem; they are trying to help you. He might be wrong (what he’s saying), you might not agree with what he’s saying. But you must agree with the spirit with which he’s saying it. You need to wake up. You need to wake up black people… you need to wake up. Because nobody is going to hand it over to you. We need to stop about the fashion. Fashion is good… we all want to look good. But at this point in our lives, fashion is not important. Let the people who have conquered everything else talk about fashion. Fashion is not your problem right now. You have bigger problems. Don’t be on social media buying data to be insulting celebrities or following celebrities to know what they wore last night. That’s not your business. How many of these big labels are owned by Africans or black people? Tomorrow you are wearing feragamo, next tomorrow you are wearing Gucci… or you are using your facebook or instagram or whatever… They are all made by who?”

Day 3. #Renaissancetriptobadagry
About 100 young people , press and influencers with support from the Lagos state ministry of Culture and Tourism took the journey to badagry where we went to trace the physical beginning of slavery and change the Narrative. we’ve often been told the white man came and did this or that… Truth is… we did this!!! We Enabled our people to be Enslaved! The Slave Merchants were Unsuccessful until they “Approached” and “Teamed up ” with our chiefs, kings and Leaders.
Out of “Greed” , Last of Self Respect and Love for our kind , Our fore fathers “Allowed” and Enslaved their own!
Today… This is still happening.
The leaders , people in PUBLIC office and we the citizenry continue to Enslave ourselves and sell our pride , humanity and future. As Black people we cannot truly be liberated or emancipated until we acknowledge our part in slavery and Address the Real problem … #MentalSlavery!

I am in 400 level and still a male virgin, please help me
A Nigerian student has taken to a popular forum to call for help over his introvert nature as he claims it has subjected him to remaining a virgin even as he's in 400 level at the university. Read his words:
''will be 21 by Oct this year and a 400l student in a fed university. I am an introvert and find it hard keeping conversations with the opposite sex though recently I have been managing to crawl out my shell and be more free with the opposite sex though that has not been easy.
I have not known any girl since my teenage years and I find it somehow unfulfilling to graduate next year without knowing any woman throughout my 5 years in the university
This is the problem. Anytime I am with a...
Lady claims there were gay unions in Igbo culture before the British came
A Nigerian media personality, Christiana Amarachi Mbakwe, has claimed that gay unions existed in the igbo culture right before the British colonial master came. She made this know via series of tweet. She said,
''One day I’ll do a thread on female husbands in Igbo culture, marriages between women that existed pre-colonialism. There was a female wife and a female husband. The British banned these unions when they imposed Victorian norms.

Because these societies had such evolved views on gender and sexuality, there was no need to “come out” you just were who you were. No...
