Ooooh, check you out Nigeria!

On Tuesday, May 16th, there was an FT supplement dedicated to Nigeria. I thought that was sooo cool, a whole “Nigerian” section in the Financial Times. Bodacious! In retrospect, it had articles about things such as:

* Politics getting in the way of reform.

* $400bn missing from the economy.

* The oil price boom.

* How EFCC Chairman's job is more dangerous than the streets of BAGHDAD!

And lastly, our dear Presido staring at us on the Front page.

Hmm now I don't know whether to be happy or sad, most of the news wasn't much for Naija being cool (hence the pic - hehe random I know). You can find the report here.

Also, Is dating a job part 2 has now been uploaded. It’s based on Naija weddings and is titled "the circus is coming to town" so check Chichi’s writing out.

Are you kidding me! I missed that edition of the FT, I'll see if I can dig it out in my office. Plus, I have that cd! One of my favourite cds of all time. Lagos must have been a funky ass place in the 70s. To quote a line from the cd: "Chop, if you get belle to put am"

Argh, someone's eaten it. Found the paper, but no supplement. Someone ate it. Not a happy bunny.

Why do you love louis vuitton ? If you're like most brand enthusiasts, you're probably drawn to their exclusivity, prestige, and trend-setting style. We all want to invest in Show Spring Summer 2009 that are durably crafted to stand the test of time, but let be honest -- there's more to their appeal than just practicality. In addition to ensuring that your Stephen Sprouse Collection is sturdy and well-made, you also want Suhali Leather a chic accessory that will turn heads as you head down a busy city street.
