Seun oh!

I no fit open nairaland for public again...pornstars are having a field day

They are opening accounts with reckless abandon and spamming the whole site with obscenities...

I will suggest that new accounts should not be allowed to add attachments till after a period of time e.g say after 3 months of been active before they can add attachments in posts.

The current method of allowing ALL accounts add attachments only for the mods to take them down (whenever they like), is not efficient...Do some small programming fix

This is becoming too rampant, please do the needful
excellent suggestion. I'll also suggest that any attachments should be reviewed by the mods before being uploaded, in the sense that before an image is attached to a post, it should be checked by the mods if it's appropriate for the forum; if it isn't, it should be unabled and discarded.

This shouldn't be a tedious job for the mods since not many people attach image to their posts.

Fella was a real crazy man who lived a very rotten life no sane person would like to identify with.
His music is only loved by drug addicts and mentaly deranged people or those high on alcohol.

What shocks me is how hard people from his ethnic group promoted his image based on ethnic bias. Some
even voted him the greatest Nigerian ever. Sad he died of HIV. Fela was certified mental case.

I thank God Africans started telling their own story. If not, European, Arab and Asia would have rewrite Fela history and tell us God instructed one man from Jerusalem or Saudi to marry 27 wives at once.

Apart from his afrobeat, a genre of music that I love so much, Fela was a bad influence!

OgbanjeProphet:
This is stupity Those whose fathers married only one wife are killing themselves over inheritance...

To an Igbo man, marrying twenty seven wives is not an achievement, but having plenty money in the account.

Thank God my father married only one wife, and I am going to follow his footsteps....forget!...even though u marry only one if you no go get money ...u no go get ...that doesn't count

No doubt his personal life was colourful to put it mildly, but the message in his music was futuristic and full of intelligence. I am a lawyer practising in the UK and I grew up listening to his music. He spoke generally about an oppressive government of the time.

In 1978, Fela Kuti asked all the ladies in his band if they wanted to marry him and 27 of them agreed. Afterwards, Fela called 12 priests who presided over the wedding ceremony.

After the wedding, he took all 27 wives to Ghana for honeymoon.

And today's musicians and actors can't stay in a marriage with one partner. After one year we will hear divorce, domestic abuse& cheating. This guy kept 27 women all in one house and they were all one happy family.

Sometimes you just want pure discussion free of prejudice based on the topic. But I understand the deep pain some people feel about Fella's success and international status.

However, a couple of people here are right about Fella excesses. His profession is full of womanizers and drug addicts across any race or continent. It was a profession people from good homes avoided, just like the Army.

Nevertheless, Fela from a good family decided on music. In the process, he became a brave activist pointing world attention not only to Nigeria but the plight of black people.

Bandwagon?
What is the definition of a man?
What is the definition of principles?
Have you ever believed in anything that is bigger than you and lost everything for it?
Can you say ANYTHING today that would be relevant in 30 years?
I pity anyone that tries to fight or engage in a struggle for black people, the same thing you are saying is the same thing our fathers said about Fela, now who has been vindicated. No be the same Buhari the pikin of those wey abuse Fela vote for? Same man that punished their fathers?

Baba already told you he has death in his pocket, baba lives forever. Truth can't die

In cross river men use the number of children they have to boast.. You would hear statement like "I have 200 children, 40 in Akwa-ibom, 60 in Calabar, 40 on Ikom, and 60 in Ogoja...
Never you under estimate the sexual prowness of women from the SS region of Nigeria..
