Comps and Stuff.....

....It's January and at the start of the year, there's always loads of competitions and things to enter for prizes to be won later on in the year. Among the several ones I've come across online, I picked out some of the career/opportunity-oriented ones:


  • Lorenzo Natali Prize (2007) for journalism - see website for info (Nigerians can enter) so please pass this on to your journalist/writer friends. (Deadline = 31st January, 2007)

  • Goldman Sachs Africa Initiative - not necessarily a competition but an opportunity. See Nigeria's Gbenga Sesan (Oro)'s blog for more info. (Deadline = 31st January, 2007). Some more info here

There is also a new up and coming forum/website - www.youngnigerianprofessionals.com . It aims to be a good networking portal for us Young Nigerian Prof so check it out.

I was reading Naijavixen's blog and came across the funniest thing online (listen here). It's funnier if you understand what the yoruba interpreter is saying - may God forgive him LOL!





And finally, this new movie everyone seems to be talking about all of a sudden "IRAPADA", also found out from Naijavixen - a yoruba movie/blockbuster lol. Check out the site

now if my connection was fast enough, I would have listened to the yoruba thing and said that since I did not understand yoruba i'm not interested. So I just decided to say it. I've found Yoruba movies to be generally more Nollywood than Nollywood, though I suppose the overacting may look even worse if u don't understand what's going on. I wonder if there are any hausa naija movies. Mona as self professed milk lady u are tasked with finding out.
