A Fallacious Christian Doctrine – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | October 8, 2018 – I am a preacher without a pulpit.

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | August 20, 2018 –  In one of those instances of fuel scarcity in Lagos State, I drove to a fuel station, and, like the other motorists, parked my car in the line for petrol. In a more sane society, motorists will sit in their cars, and inch their […]

President Macron: a Validation of Fela’s Legacy – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | July 20, 2018-  It seemed inconceivable that the President of France will visit the citadel of Afro Beat iconoclasm and activism, the New Afrikan Shrine.

The Nihilism in Biafranism – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | June 2, 2018 – Following the July 29th 1966 mutiny that killed Aguiyi-Ironsi, the rallying call of many Northern Nigerians was Araba!

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | April 3, 2018 – A onetime Chinese leader, Mao Tse Dong, once said, “We advocate world peace but there can be no peace without war”.

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | February 28, 2018 – The Nigerian ruling elite can be repulsively arrogant, disgustingly snobbish and frighteningly coldhearted.
