BLACK GUY ALWAYS BUTT OF JOKE IN SA ADS

I recently watched a KFC Ad from Australia which sparked debate as to its racist nature. It was discussed on the Young Turks platform where one of the commentators rules it is racist by breaking it down as follows: This white guy is sitting in his own seat, he is trying to watch a game while all these black people are behaving uncivilised. He asks "want a way out of a sticky situation?" - gives them chicken to behave themselves then announces - "too easy!"

LUPITA CLAIMS KENYA’S FIRST OSCAR WEARING #NAIROBIBLUE

511744-01-03

In the latter part of last night and early this morning (depending on where you are in Africa), the hash tag #NairobiBlue was trending globally as the movers and shakers of Hollywood graced the red carpet. The term was coined by online spectators after Kenyan entertainment professional Lupita Nyong'o hit the Oscar red carpet wearing a custom Prada light blue silk georgette gown with a deep V-neck top and low cut sides.

REMEMBERING RICHARD JONAH, GONE WAY TOO SOON!

JONAHLast night I changed my dinner order at a hotel in Namibia from lamb chops to grilled fish. Time to watch the cholesterol like a coach does the clock in extra time.

I just learnt of a hat trick of Ghanaians all less than a decade my senior passing away as a result of heart issues. First, the older brother of my very close friend, then BBC's Komla Dumor and now Richard, the enterprising son of one of Ghana's richest men Sir Sam Jonah.

Power is like being a lady (or man)...if you have to tell people you are, you aren't – Margaret Thatcher
On the third of Feb 2014, God blessed my wife and I with a bouncing baby boy. I was not shy about posting pictures on Facebook one of which received an overwhelming 759 likes. A flood of congratulations followed, inbox messages, smses, whatsapp groups and quite a few local and international phone calls.
One particular friend who is a father to a couple of daughters asked me "Dude how did you manage to get a boy on your first attempt?"

REMEMBERING BBC'S KOMLA DUMOR

Dumorpic

The passing of Ghanaian born Komla Dumor of the BBC this week bears striking similarities to the demise of SABC star Vuyo Mbuli. The latter collapsed while watching a local rugby game and was minutes later pronounced dead. Both men were in their forties and at the prime of their journalistic careers which their respective audiences expected would extend well into elderly years before bowing out like the likes of Larry King and Bernard Shaw.

ABIOLA: 31 YEAR OLD NIGERIAN ON BRITAIN’S BEST BUSINESSWOMEN LIST

dupeIf you were a keen follower of African news in the nineties, you would probably remember Moshood (MKO) Abiola. MKO was a Nigerian billionaire and philanthropist who won his country's 1993 presidential elections. The then military regime however refused to hand over power to him and instead detained him drawing widespread international criticism. On the day of his release in 1998, he died in detention under suspicious circumstances.

Pictures taken within 24hrs of #Mandela's passing

The organisers of this trip could not have predicted the timing. We were scheduled on 6th December 2013 to take a bus tour of important sites in Johannesburg. Twelve hours before the start of the trip, Nelson Mandela was pronounced dead and so it was with the thoughts of the great man that we undertook visits to various spots littered with the memory of his legacy.

Constitutional Hill: Standing in front of the famous Madiba quote "Fighting against domination, it is an ideal I hope to live for an achieve, but if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."

Sir Sam Jonah: Knighted African Igniting Africa

IMG 9817

"Jonah became one of the wealthiest individuals in Ghana as he held lucrative international directorships as well as profitable investments. It was for his contributions as an African businessman and philanthropic work, especially in education, that he received an Honorary Knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II."


I regrettably kept Sir Jonah waiting for an hour as I battled the notorious traffic on Jan Smuts to get to his Illovo office. Thankfully, despite the rushed interview, he recommended his biography "Sam Jonah and the Remaking of Ashanti" by AA Taylor as a source of additional information.
