Introducing the #NaijaReads Revolution Print E-mail

“There is this saying that says ‘If you want to hide something from an African put it in a book’.

I really hate it but sadly one that I get to hear regularly and it makes me cringe each time it’s said.

I cringe because most of us use the phrase in a comical manner, yet there is more to it.

Come to think about it, when was the last time you bought a book, or when was the last time you read a book from cover to cover?

Sadly for most people you will realize that the last time you read a book was probably as part of their course work or for presentation purposes”

- Christine Chacha (Tanzania)

Now this may seem like a rhetoric question but I will still love to ask…

When was the last time you purchased a book and read it?

Do not be in a hurry to proffer a response.

Nigerian sensational trio, Ogah Brothers just released a new single, Tinko Tinko.

A London-based Indian songstress; Tia Kansara who was uber excited by the sheer prowess of these dudes had to indicate interest to work with them.

In an e-mail to them, she said: “Hi Ogah Brothers - quite excited about your music.

When I first listened to Tinko Tinko, all the hairs on my arms were on edge - which is for the sign that you sing with your hearts.

I'd love to work with you.”

What you are about to read is inspired by comments on popular blog sites in Nigeria.
If all the comments read on Nigerian blogs as regards the issue is anything to go by - then everyone in our society is gay.

Ultimately we have espoused doctrines and diverse cultures from western countries all in the name of the world been a global village.
Our culture has grown from conservative to embracing and adopting foreign ones in almost every area of our life and daily activities.
We are becoming more western than the westerners themselves.
I have been thrown aback by several ridiculous comments on social media blogs,
commentators are so quick to identify and label individuals - most times our celebrities “GAY” (“Our celebrity status” an issue I intend to address soon).
How can you conclude ones sexuality from pictures and videos?
Some of our celebrities have already been solemnized in holy matrimony with same sex partners by commentators on social media sites.
