Culture / Re: Biafra Shocker!!! Sunday Oliseh Refused To Be called Igbo!!! See 0:35 - 0:40 by CHM11: 11:17pm
Well, the real issue is not what Sunday Oliseh calls himself(I think he is in a best position to know who he is ) but what others perceive him to be. I think most non-Ika-speaking people would, on first instinct, call him Igbo. I have always thought He's Igbo but I can now see I was clearly wrong. I guess most Nigerians from the North, on first instinct, would categorize such names as Omatseye, Omatsola, Omawunmi, Omajuwa, Omagbemi, Oritsemeyiwa, Oritsemodupe, Oritsejafor, etc as Yoruba. It's only people from part of the South who understand the nuances that can actually differentiate and thus properly categorize the names as Itsekiri.

It's a bit difficult for me to call someone who bears Ogochukwu, something other than Igbo. Based on this stereotype, he would have benefited from being perceived to be Igbo but also suffered from similar perception in some circumstances. That may explain while some, who are not as bold as Sunday oliseh, present different faces to different people. When they thought their perceived Igboness would be helpful, they claimed Igbo. Otherwise, they claimed something different.

The real problem lies with people who treat them based on what they perceived them to be without giving them a chance to define themselves. Thus a man could be favored or punished for who he is not. That's the problem of double identity and part of Nigeria's complexities.

In this Small-Big intra-linguistic identity schism, the more successful the larger group becomes, the less the likelihood it claims the smaller one but paradoxically, the more the smaller one craves to be identified with the bigger group. The identity crisis is thus, in a way, a product of brand management. Since they can choose to be either A or B, it comes down to just one question: Do I gain or lose more by being seen as A or B?

As simple and clearly explained as you have done here, some will still want to attack you for stating the obvious.

Nice analysis btw.

Romance / Chris Breezy’s Baby Mama Finally Files For Full Custody Of Their Daughter by Starzgist1(f): 11:17pm
Since the home invasion which cost him over $50k worth of gear ,Chris Brown hasn't shared photos of Royalty .Now,it is revealed that act could see him forfeit unsupervised visitation rights with his daughter.According to TMZ, his baby mama is worried Royalty's in danger when she's with Chris and his homies.She has now filed legal documents to stop his visitation rights..

Sources close to Nia Guzman tell TMZ ... she thinks many of Chris' friends are gang members or gang-affiliated, and the robbery shows they've now turned on Chris. We're told she's not cool with Royalty being around that element.
It's bad timing for Chris. He just filed docs asking a judge to hammer out a formal custody agreement -- partly because he says Nia's been denying him visits with Royalty.If the court sees things Nia's way it could affect custody

If you are not a crook, how come you can afford to foot a medical bill in the US when your entire career has been a Nigerian politician?

Cretin, how much were you paid as a politician that you can afford to "fly out" of the country for surgery.

Believe it or not everything in this world seems to be sexually portrayed like wtf really! can't anything be done morally without exposing boobs asses and poo

poo is becoming disturbing
From the Internet to the TV,
The media is all messed up
Seems we ve lost it
Gospel singers exposing cleavages wtf
Are u wining souls for Christ or u just some cheap_lonely_looking_for_attention_whore

Y'all should get ur act together and stop being a sex object cus that's what we see you as when u keep exposing and exposing

How can one be in the church and all I can see is sex images from left to right
