Exploring the Rich Tapestry of Igbo Culture in Áfàméfùnà

Áfàméfùnà is a captivating exploration of Igbo culture, brimming with authenticity, emotion, and intrigue. Through its portrayal of the apprenticeship system, the bonds of brotherhood, and the complexities of human relationships, the film offers a nuanced perspective on the rich tapestry of Igbo traditions. 

In the bustling streets of Lagos, a tale unfolds, rich with the vibrant colors of Igbo culture, the bonds of brotherhood, and the complexities of human relationships. Directed by the visionary Kayode Kasum, "Áfàméfùnà" invites viewers on a captivating journey into the heart of Igbo traditions, where admiration, betrayal, and redemption intertwine to create a compelling narrative.

From the outset, "Áfàméfùnà" immerses audiences in the sights and sounds of an exuberant burial ceremony, setting the stage for the story of a young man named Áfàméfùnà. Clad in traditional isiagu attire, Áfàméfùnà's journey unfolds against the backdrop of a rapidly changing Lagos, where he navigates the complexities of life as a Nwa Boi, or apprentice.

Central to the film is the relationship between Áfàméfùnà and his mentor, Paul, whose friendship blossoms amidst the bustling markets and narrow alleyways of Lagos. As Áfàméfùnà learns the intricacies of trade, he also grapples with unspoken desires for Odogwu's daughter, Amaka, setting the stage for a love story fraught with longing and sacrifice.

One of the film's standout features is its authentic portrayal of Igbo culture, with characters speaking fluent Igbo—a departure from the predominantly English dialogue of previous Igbo films. Through vibrant dance sequences, heartfelt conversations, and the recitation of proverbs, "Áfàméfùnà" offers a window into the rich tapestry of Igbo traditions, from the apprenticeship system to the importance of brotherhood and hard work.

At the heart of the film lies the Igbo apprenticeship system, a time-honored tradition that forms the backbone of Igbo entrepreneurship. As Odogwu explains, the system emerged in the aftermath of the Biafran War, with Nwa Bois playing a pivotal role in the growth of Igbo businesses. Through the lens of Áfàméfùnà's journey, viewers gain insight into the principles of trust, loyalty, and reciprocity that underpin this time-honored tradition.

Yet, amidst the backdrop of cultural celebration and camaraderie, "Áfàméfùnà" also grapples with weighty themes of betrayal and redemption. As Áfàméfùnà's bond with Paul is tested by jealousy and deceit, the film delves into the complexities of human relationships and the consequences of our actions.

While "Áfàméfùnà" is a triumph in many respects, it is not without its flaws. Questions linger regarding plot holes and character motivations, leaving viewers yearning for more clarity and closure. Yet, despite these shortcomings, the film's vibrant cinematography, evocative soundtrack, and stellar performances elevate it to a must-watch cinematic experience.

Undeterred, Teemirror moves forward with unyielding optimism, relying on the belief that Olamide’s influence can propel his music to greater heights. “Olamide is a god, I need the touch of a god to fuel the greatness in me, so I rely on God to use his creation for my sakes,” Teemirror affirmed.

With the release of “What works works : what doesn’t doesn’t” on August 18th marking a pivotal moment in his career, the EP is receiving exceptional reception across various social media platforms. TikTok, in particular, is witnessing an upsurge in users creating engaging videos showcasing Teemirror’s artistry.

Yemi Ajibade Shares Lessons Taken From The Naira Scarcity In Nigeria

Photo Credit: Tima Miroshnichenko - Pexel 

Yemi Ajibade is one of  Africa’s Leading Marketing Trainers, wielding expertise in consumer goods branding and marketing. Yemi started his professional career at Chocolate City Music, one of Africa’s largest record labels. As a Digital Marketer, he contributed to the record label breaking several streaming records. He was also instrumental in developing the marketing strategy that got Ckay’s Love Nwantinti Remix on Billboard’s No 2 Global Chart. 

Yemi shares two no-fail ways to get customers when other strategies fail. Below are the lessons taken from the Naira scarcity in Nigeria.

For some weeks now, Nigerians have been facing the issue of cash scarcity. Cash has gotten so scarce that people are paying up to 10% extra in order to withdraw from POS operators. Nigeria is a very cash-based economy. And unless you are the CEO of a multinational company, you can hardly survive without cash in Nigeria. I honestly with my fellow Nigerians facing this cash scarcity.

However, my post isn’t about Naira scarcity. It's about something crucial to every business. And that is, how do you get customers when there seems to be a scarcity of them? If “cash is king” in business, customers are the citizens that make that kingdom survive.

Like every business owner, my guess is, you are looking for more customers? And sometimes, it feels like there is a scarcity of them.

There are some lessons we can learn from the cash scarcity situation in Nigerian that applies to getting customers in business.

1. Don’t search for “cash” where everyone else is:
Typically, our go-to places for cash are the bank, ATM, and POS operators. But right now, those channels are totally clogged with hundreds of people. In the same way, you may be operating in an industry that is filled with competitors. And typically, that means you get less piece of the pie (customers).

This is my first recommendation. If you are badly seeking customers for your business, you cannot depend on the channels everyone else is using. If everyone is flooding social media for customers, that means the probability of you getting buyers there gets lower and lower. (Don't get it twisted, social media remains a fantastic place to get customers). Therefore, if you want to survive the scarcity, you may need to look elsewhere. Start exploring other marketing channels with low competition (before it gets wild).
This is not the time to depend on the usual marketing channels we know. There are other channels you can explore. Depending on what you do, you can try out email marketing, offline distribution, community building, and so on.

2. Form strategic partnerships:
One of the ways I have personally survived the cash scarcity is through my “partnership” with a friend. When either of us has some cash, we share it with each other. You can’t grow alone in business. You need to form strategic partnerships. Look out for people that have complementary customers like you.

A classic example is the Beans and Bread reference we make in Nigeria. Whatever industry you are in, find your beans sellers. Bread always follows the beans (quote that)

This week’s prompt: Try a new marketing channel you haven’t used before. This could be LinkedIn Ads, sending proposals, Google Search Ads, TikTok Ads, Mobile Game Apps, or anything. Explore and reiterate.

Do you need more in-depth clarity for your business? Do you feel you have a great product but aren’t sure how to push it? Or do you have an idea bubbling in your head and you need someone to bounce it with? Click here to book a free a slot to get clarity on any area of your business.

Why Nigeria Must Phase out Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar In The Upcoming Elections

As Nigeria prepares for another round of general elections, it is important to consider the role that politicians such as Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar have played in the country's political landscape. While both men have had a significant impact on Nigerian politics, it is my belief that it is time for the country to move away from their leadership and explore new options. Here are some of the reasons I opine that Nigeria should phase out Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar in the upcoming elections.

First and foremost, both Tinubu and Abubakar have had a long history of political involvement in Nigeria, having held positions of power for several years. While experience can be an asset in politics, it can also lead to stagnation and a lack of fresh ideas. The country's political landscape has changed significantly in recent years, with new challenges and opportunities arising. It is therefore crucial that Nigeria's leaders are able to adapt to these changes and bring new ideas and perspectives to the table.

Additionally, both Tinubu and Abubakar have been linked to a number of controversies and scandals over the years. Tinubu, for example, has been criticized for his alleged involvement in electoral fraud and vote-buying. This is in addition to investigative reports by David Hundeyin which linked Tinubu to heavy involvement in drug trafficking, while Abubakar has been fingered for corruption and embezzlement. These controversies have raised serious questions about the integrity and credibility of these politicians, and it is important that Nigeria's leaders are held to the highest standards of transparency and accountability.

Both Tinubu and Abubakar have been criticized for their lack of commitment to addressing the country's most pressing issues. Nigeria is facing a number of challenges, such as poverty, unemployment, and poor infrastructure, and it is crucial that the country's leaders are focused on finding solutions to these problems. Unfortunately, both Tinubu and Abubakar have been accused of prioritizing their own interests over those of the country, and it is time for Nigeria to elect leaders who are truly committed to making a positive difference.

While Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar have had a significant impact on Nigerian politics, it is my belief that it is time for the country to move away from their leadership. With new challenges and opportunities arising, it is crucial that Nigeria's leaders are able to adapt and bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the table. 

With their histories of controversies and scandals, as well as their lack of commitment to addressing the country's most pressing issues, it is clear that Nigeria would be better served by phasing out Tinubu and Abubakar in the upcoming elections.


Everything You Need to Know About The Diphtheria Outbreak in Nigeria

Nigeria is currently facing a diphtheria outbreak. In January of 2023 alone, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (NCDC) confirmed over 120 cases of Diphtheria disease with over 30 deaths in four states in the country.

Diphtheria is a highly contagious and potentially fatal disease that is caused by the bacterium Corynebacterium diphtheriae. It is spread through respiratory droplets and can cause a wide range of symptoms, including sore throat, fever, and difficulty breathing. The disease is particularly dangerous in young children and older adults, as well as people with weakened immune systems.

The disease was first reported in the Nigeria in the year 1989 with 5,039 cases. Then another outbreak in the year 2000 with 3,995 cases. In 2001, over 2,400 cases were reported. The total of confirmed cases has been on the decline until its resurgence in recent times. The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reported several confirmed cases of the outbreak as of 2021.

One of the main reasons for the outbreak is the low vaccination coverage in Nigeria. This means that many children are not protected against the disease, which makes it easier for the disease to spread.

A major factor contributing to the outbreak is poor sanitation and hygiene. Diphtheria is more likely to spread in areas where people live in close proximity and have limited access to clean water and sanitation. This is a common problem in many parts of the country, where overcrowding and poor living conditions make it easy for the disease to spread.

The most common symptoms of diphtheria include:
  • Sore throat
  • Mild fever
  • Swollen glands in the neck
  • Hoarseness or loss of voice
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Nasal congestion or discharge
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
In severe cases, diphtheria can also cause:
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Heart failure
  • Paralysis
  • Death

It is important to seek medical attention immediately if you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms. Diphtheria can be treated with antibiotics, but early treatment is crucial to prevent serious complications.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that at least 95% of children should be vaccinated against diphtheria to achieve herd immunity, but Nigeria's vaccination coverage is well below this threshold.

The NCDC, in collaboration with WHO, UNICEF and other partners have taken steps to control the outbreak. They have launched a massive vaccination campaign, targeted at children under 15 years of age, with a focus on high-risk areas. They are also providing antibiotics and other medical treatment to people who have been infected with the disease.

In addition to this, the NCDC is also working to improve sanitation and hygiene in affected areas, and to raise awareness about the disease and how to prevent it. This includes educating people on the importance of vaccination and handwashing, and providing information on how to recognize the symptoms of diphtheria.

It is important to note that the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from diphtheria is to get vaccinated. Parents should ensure that their children are up to date with their vaccinations, and adults should also consider getting a booster shot if they have not been vaccinated in recent years.

In conclusion, the diphtheria outbreak in Nigeria is a serious concern. However, with the efforts of the NCDC and other partners, the outbreak can be controlled. It is important for everyone to take steps to protect themselves and their loved ones from the disease by getting vaccinated, practicing good hygiene and following the guidelines provided by the health authorities. Additionally, if you or someone you know is experiencing any of the symptoms of diphtheria, seek medical attention immediately.

Elon Musk Takes Over Affairs At Twitter After Successful Buyout

Elon Musk Takes Over Affairs At Twitter After Buyout
Twitter has announced in a press release that it has accepted Elon Musk’s bid to purchase the Social media company for a whooping $44 billion.

Prior to the buyout, Elon Musk made a tweet saying; “I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means.”

Elon said his goal at Twitter was to make it better than it ever was "by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans".
“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated”
It is uncertain what impact Elon Musk will have on Twitter or where he’ll start with changes. However, we do know he suggested nixing ads from Twitter Blue, and lowering its subscription price, while also adding Dogecoin as a payment option.

Elon Musk is notorious for his criticism over Twitter moderation, describing himself as a “free speech absolutist.” Describing how Twitter would function under his control, he said
“It’s just really important that people have the reality and the perception that they’re able to speak freely within the bounds of the law. I think broadly, the civilizational risk is decreased the more we can increase the trust of Twitter as a public platform.”
