Opinions

Opinions form our perceptions. And our perceptions prune our opinions. In this endless circle of steady improvement, we must be free to air what we feel and at the same time guiding those same opinions to what is beneficial to all of mankind.

4 Lessons Anyone can Learn from Real Madrid’s 2017 CL Victory

One of the worst feelings ever is waiting for something you can hardly wait for. The anxiety, the pent up expectation, the nostalgia, combine each of this 'ingredients' as it were, into a capsule; swallow it, the resultant effect begins to do justice to the kind of feeling I am talking about. For football fans and fanatics alike, it was if a superpower should be granted one and all - to fast forward the apparently sluggishly-moving time, so as to watch one…

Affording Covenant University (C.U): A Symbol of ‘Bondage’ or ‘Freedom’?

The Ota-based archetype of private University education has been in the news recently for a variety of reasons - some totally explicable, others beating even the most intuitive of imagination. Well, the choice of the word "archetype" is intended to portray a telling insight of the overriding influence she has on other private institutions - a model of sorts. For the purpose of this piece in any case, attention should be drawn by you to adjudge for yourself as to…

Why the Journey is more important than the Destination

Let your joy be in your journey - not in some distant goal. - Tim Cook The sirens from the flower-decked convoy of wedding revelers blared as the excitement in the air contagiously affected one and all. It was a massively anticipated ceremony. The bride, ever gorgeous - both in gait and poise smiled shyly as she came down from her customized car. This wasn't the usual wedding. This was the gathering of the high and mighty - individuals with…

3 Things I Learned in March: my Microsoft Interns4Afrika Experience

The Epiphany You could consider it an epiphany of sorts. At exactly 10:43A.M on the 20th of February, 2017 I received the mail above from Fuzu.com. Just like many other job applications I had made in the past, I had already resigned to fate probably seeing this application as one out of many that will go through the very familiar routine of rejection. Or was the jinx broken? A sprinkling of pessimistic thoughts welled up within me as I remunerated on…

Fighting Tribalism among Citizens of the Cabin

No, don't stay on Facebook, go to the online 'royal rumbles' of Nigerians, viz, Nairaland, Linda Ikeji, and see the total squalor of hate Nigerians subject themselves to. I never knew of the word "Afonja" until I saw it on Nairaland. Other words like "flathead" shot through the screen as I found myself unconsciously fiddling with the topology of my own head. Tribal generalizations, from being funny have turned into the de facto. From jokes like "the Yorubas are dirty"…

#WivesNotCooks and The Burden of Proof

The greatest burden to bare - on this side of mundanity, is the burden of proof; Believe me. At the behest of a friend of mine, I found myself at the front of the pew of a local church. Over the years, I have come to prefer the relative sincerity and zeal of smaller church units to the pomp and poise of larger congregations. My mind was in limbo as the 'normal' routine of praise and worship was done. But…

Innocent with Evidence?

"Who will fight for you?" Think! Be unbiased: What will be the first thought coursing through your mind if you see a naked, running young man dashing out from an apartment building. Out of 'amebo' or righteous inquisition you move close to the scene of this melodrama - a conspicuously beautiful mansion. In the background you hear screaming, shouts and intermittent cursing. You need to satisfy this intense craving of ameboism. You peer through the window pane and you can…

‘Guilty’ Idibia: Two-faced or too fazed

Not one. Not two. Not three voices welcomed with unabated glee the news of Mr. 'Tuface' Idibia's intention of amplifying the masses' cry of concern - by reason of the extensive suffering transcending political and tribal lines. Every well-kept and hidden remonstration - the result of a realization of being conned for a pseudo-change, saw the light of 'the day' - of the voicing of frustrations en masse. A rather trivial example of the relief felt when someone else echoes your…

Donald Trump: 3 Things to Note from the Brash Mogul

Brash, impulsive, petulant - some of the most gory adjectives in the book don't seem sufficient in describing Donald Trump, President of the United States. For many, the standard of civility, poise and wit should not be sacrificed on the altar of brashness and peevishness. In fact a new word - "Dontrumpish" - esoteric in usage should be invented in describing the state of one, anyone who has exhausted his/her mileage of capriciousness. Donald Trump rode on the back of…
