Seun Anikulapo Kuti, son of Afro-beat maestro, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, wey yamutu about 1.5 decades ago,dey advocate for the legalisation of Marijuana.

His words, “Marijuana is medical, and I feel Cigarette is selling legally because it is white man’s business. It is killing millions of people every day. ‘Igbo’ is not killing anybody… Marijuana is not only for smoking. It’s used for a lot of things; you can make clothes, you can drink tea, it is good, it is medicinal, it helps your appetite, they give it to cancer patients.. a lot of benefits”.

This dey happen as two states in the United States, Colorado and Washington recently joined others as dem legalise the herb ‘for medicinal purposes’.

Obama wipes tears, says “I’m Really Proud of All of You.”

The morning after the election wey retain him for white house, an emotional President Barack Obama saluted, maybe with tuale or double tuale sef, his several hundreds of youthful staff  for running a campaign wey go “go on in the annals of history.”

As tears dey waka down em face, Obama yarn his team for inside the Chicago campaign headquarters “What you guys have accomplished will go on in the annals of history and they will read about it and they’ll marvel about it.”

“The most important thing you need to know is that your journey’s just beginning. You’re just starting. And whatever good we do over the next four years will pale in comparison to whatever you guys end up accomplishing in the years and years to come,” em yarn.

 

One history book and many others don talk details about this victory be that o. I marvel at how these people dey create and recreate history. Something for Naijamen to learn. Enjoy!

Na Obama win again o

President Obama don win re-election to the white house.

The minorities, women and moderates mainly give am the mantle again.

Obama pass the decisive 270-vote threshold in the Electoral College; em get victory for Ohio. The win give am 274 electoral votes while Romney get 201. Na CNN talk so.

One Romney friend talk say Romney to believe say em go lose. This Obama guy, ehn….
