It’s Independence Day in Nigeria, fifty two years since the British handed over.
I’ll be blogging regularly from now on.
This blog is delighted to be a member of the newly-launched Guardian Africa Network.
Below are links to some of the work I’ve been doing lately:
ONGOING CONCERNS, my weekly column for YNaija
For Wings Magazine, on the filming of Chimamanda Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun in Calabar, Nigeria
For Wings Magazine, on an Africa-inspired Olympics
For CNN, on how mobile phones are changing lives in Africa
For NSFW Corp, on the Nigerian obsession with American presidential elections (and octogenarian godfathers) (subscription required)
