USAfrica: 30 cheers to NOLLYWOOD movie maker Tony Abulu

He told USAfricaonline.com and CLASSmagazine that among Nigerian/Nollywood creative folks I am so far the only producer/distributor who has mainstream U.S distribution." For those successes and other emerging roles, I have nominated New York-based Tony Abulu, one of Nollywood's creative leaders, a versatile producer, prolific writer and movie businessman in the diaspora and inside Nigeria, an artiste who has stayed in the "game" for very tasking 30 years, a man with viable skills which he has used to elevate the African and Caribbean cultural expressions here in the U.S., to be honored at the special 20th Anniversary of USAfrica (BEST OF AFRICA Awards) on Saturday May 11, 2013 at the Hilton Towers at Westchase, Houston, Texas.

Why President Jonathan’s retention of Adefuye as Nigeria’s Ambassador to USA exposes poor judgment....

With an almost complete failure to deal with Boko Haram, resurgent threats of militancy in the Niger Delta, broadening and unnerving sagas of monumental corruption over the fuel subsidy regime, and many more unnatural disasters that Nigeria faces today, it is most unfortunate that the President of Nigeria should shy away from leading the nation. President Jonathan seems to believe that he could preserve his administration by doing as little as possible. Leaving Adefuye in office is just a crystal example of the President choosing to do nothing and, by implication, choosing not to lead at a time that leadership is so critically needed.

USAfrica special: NOLLYWOOD and African-theme Movies in the Diaspora. By Chudi Okafor

In this critical global information age, I salute the DishNetwork for adding a medium for balanced information sharing about Nigeria in particular, and Africa in general. This is an opportunity that should not be missed because it would allow Africa tell her own story, against the slanted, stereotyped and often uninformed views on African affairs.

Is District 9 movie a fitting metaphor for the ugliness of Nigeria?

Nigeria is a nation whose ugliness is increasingly troubling! Nigeria’s Information Minister, Professor Dora Akunyili has implicitly accepted that there is something wrong with Nigeria’s image. She hardly accepts that there is something wrong with Nigeria. Trivializing her pet project to a matter of perception as she is doing with her usual zeal and outspokenness rather than accepting the obvious is very unhelpful. The poignancy of such artistic endeavors like District 9, which has been described as “a science-fiction morality tale” ought to be seen as an effort not only driven by mercantile interest, but also an effort to employ art to deliver the message to the so-called Nigerian leaders, past and present of the incalculable harm they have done and continue to do their country and its inhabitants. But are they listening? I have doubts.

Houston can’t wait for expanded light rail

Light rail holds too significance to the Bayou City of the 21st century to be considered only so casually, disjointedly and often from partisan political prism. What is important here is that the contract brings to active life an expansion of light rail in this city. It is worth celebrating given that organized partisan opposition to light rail has been the Achilles heel of mass transit in Houston.
