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.
