Political Correctness/Freedom of Speech: The Nando's Ads

I came across this advert by South African fast food chain, Nando's during a recent web-crawling and i was struck by a couple of things: 1. What limits do we have on freedom of speech? As much as the advert was funny and witty and a very good use of poetic license,

Grumblings from Overseas! The Pepper Spray Movie in pictures

See wetin we dey experience since like forever! So na just pepper way de inside can na him dem cause so much wahala? Make dem come 9ja see wetin MOPOL n Police dem use awa eye see!

Forgive my speaking broken English, here is the translation of the above paragraph ( for those who don't understand it)! We have been experiencing police brutality since like forever and i can not just imagine that pepper spraying of innocent protesters is causing so much rumpus! Non Nigerians need to visit Nigeria to witness first hand what Police brutality is really about!

Lt. John Pike has made himself popular though infamously but he is going down in history as the Causal Pepper Spray Policeman. Here are some pictures of him being meme(d). ( Photos courtesy of The Guardian on Facebook). Don't know what a meme is?
Pls google it or wiki it!

I love Nigeria.

What about you? You don't right? That's exactly the problem with Nigeria... We all have desires of the Nigeria we want but how many of us are actually doing something positive in that regard?

I really want to say something on the issues raging through social media in Nigeria at the moment a la carte National honours given to some people on Monday

Crass Materialism

What is the problem with modern day Nigeria?

If you ask me, CRASS MATERIALISM...

Why do i say so? Simple
In Nigeria of my pikinhood childhood, a child was taught some fundamental principles which were applicable all round..
1. Respect for Elders: This was drummed  knocked into our heads from a young head. you have to greet everyone first time you saw them in the day whether they were known to you or not, provided they were older than you. You wouldn't dare to interrupt an elder when he or she was talking( who dashed monkey banana) but what do we have this days?
2. Dignity in Labour: I swear money wasn't the big deal it is today back then. Our parents worked hard, were content with the little they had( at least my father was)maybe the fact that Life was much easier then was a factor but the rate at which most young men and women of this times pursue money owo, ego, kudi, dough, duchy etc and go to any length to achieve this is sickening to me at least. maybe i am too weird for my own good but i feel that we all in a quest to live the good life miss the plot totally.. Don't get me wrong, if you are fortunate to earn 7 figures from a legitimate source of income, jolly well you but do not buga come to show to me your new wonder on wheels cos frankly that doesnt freak me...I would be happy for you but i will also pray for you.
3. Sense of Importance: this is the main reason why i am typing this note at an hour i should be getting my beauty sleep.. We lost the plot totally  when we started to place importance on titles.. imagine someone who happens to be an engineer going by this hailings: Chief Engr.(Dr.) Pastor or the one that sets me off my tangent (Ballister) no apologies to any misconceived notion. Haba, any lawyer worth his wig n gown will not stand up in court to introduce his name as Ballister GANI Atawewe as his outfit already announces him as one. mind you, the ONLY time a lawyer is a barrister is when he is functioning in that office of advocacy before the court. immediately he (no gender at the Bar) removes the wig n the gown, he is plain old mister or miss or mrs as the case may be. it has gotten so bad that everybody now uses some title or the other before their name: Dame, Engr, Barr, Tpl(town planner), Arch, Pharm, Acct, Pastor...
4. i wan go sleep... i don tire..
