• Did You Miss The #AGACultureSeries yesterday? Let me tell you all about it!

    When my friend Dolapo Aina asked if I would be interested in attending an art exhibition on Sunday July 18th, I said yes of course I would. If we’re keeping it a buck, mainly because my social life has a -0 rating and I was beginning to feel like a hobo, cooped up at home with nobody asking me to go anywhere 😃 A week to the event, I checked out the exhibition and the hosts on social media and I was glad I did. It turns out to be exactly the kind of scene that gives me joy. Sunday came and It was truly satisfying. Packaged by Circuit.NG, the…

  • Did @BrymOlawale Bring It At Terra Arena Last Night? Yup! He ‘Brung’ It All Right!

    It’s an open secret that BRYMO lovers will follow him to the ends of the earth if need be; and so it’s not really news that Terra Arena was packed out last night. But then, there’s something else. The crowd was slightly different from the #OrganisedChaos crowd. There were scatterings of expatriates and more than a good number of ‘over 40s’; but great music is a leveler as we all grooved, yelled, danced and sang along. It also inspired so many of them to take music lessons, especially bongos lessons

  • @ShonowoHospital Partners With HACEY HEALTH INITIATIVE To #EndMalaria

    Almost everyone has experienced a mosquito bite. Beyond being an annoyance, mosquitoes are carriers of some disease pathogens that afflict humans. One of such diseases is malaria—a disease that still claims the life of one child every two minutes, despite tremendous progress in recent decades. Malaria is transmitted through the bite of the female anopheles mosquito. Currently, Nigeria accounts for about a third of all malaria cases in the world, and pregnant women and children under 5 are still very vulnerable as malaria is a major cause of maternal and infant mortality.

  • How @BrymOlawale Served It All At #OragnisedChaos

    Electric. That’s the word that comes to mind when I think about BRYMO’s performance at his concert yesterday. There was a time the Nigerian music audience was sold the lie that a music concert without a thousand mile long list of supporting acts, comedy intermissions and whatever else won’t give the concert goer the ultimate experience, but BRYMO keeps putting that ridiculous theory to shame.
