Afro Emoji app on the market for free!

A new app from Nigeria is here to help in the quest for more diverse emojis, and this time the wacky characters have been designed with West Africans in mind. "Afro Emoji" launched Wednesday for free download on Android and Apple devices.

The West African-themed "stickers" in the app consists of a diverse array of characters dressed in traditional African clothing and accompanied by familiar pan-African phrases in pidgin English, including "Abeg no vex" (please, don’t be annoyed), "Chai!" (an exclamation of surprise) and "Akwaaba" ("Welcome" in the Ghanaian language Twi).

 Ayoola Daramola, the Nigerian-American team lead of the app, said he believes that the idea is plugging into a key demographic that's been largely ignored in the tech world. In a press release, Daramola explained the desire behind creating the Afro Emoji app: We, as Africans, definitely have an idiosyncratic way of communicating with one another, and Afro Emoji is really a fun, accessible graphic depiction of that. We are building a modern African hieroglyph that represents us.

 While the economies of African countries like Nigeria and Ghana surge, the tech and mobile industry on the continent is also continuing to grow. Over 400 million smartphones are projected to be use on the continent by 2020. “Mobile is king in Africa," Dramola said. "It is the tool for communication and media consumption, so we expect the Afro Emoji to become a key component in how Africans message and chat.”

 What a great way for us Africans to express our emotions on the mobile world. Go and check the out!

Pastor arrested for fake Currency Printing

What annoys me about him the most is that he shows no insight. But trying to make excuses. Too many fake pastors around the world. Is only God we can trust!

Music: Nneka - Lucifer (No Doubt)

Lyrics to Lucifer (No Doubt) :
It is Dollars, it is Euros, it is Sullis, it is Pounds, it is Crowns, it is Yens, it is Lyons
Still the clouds are gray, did u want us to believe that u love us, more than u love yourself
We have been waiting, to trust u since, had u praying on blood wounded knees, for u to hear us out,
in distress, must confess, you have achieved what is best, for the devil to rule our lives, to ruin this world
Oh no doubt, I am loving you more than I love myself
With your mouth,
you stole my soul so I could not love myself
Oh no doubt
I am loving you more than I love myself
With your mouth
you took my soul so and so I cannot love myself
For there was in our minds, our soul, in the world
there are books, there are laws, there is religion, for confusion, for control
Every corner there is dread, there is pain, is there love in the heart of man, for we know what we do

Nigeria# Sad News

The news of the plane crash in Lagos, Nigeria has touched me deeply, I sympathize with those left behind. God is in this dark hour of secure hold. I hope that this biblical text helps to overcome the sadness.

John 14:1-2
"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father's house are many mansions;if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Love you

If there is a Nollywood actress I really like then Funke Akindele, she was brilliant in Jenifa was funny in the music video of Wizkid "Pakurumo" . She was honored in 2009 as Best Actress in a Leading Role. Why such a successful woman decides to live polygamy? I know that in Africa, polygamy is not only tolerated but sometimes forced. Many families in Africa, suffer from polygamy, siblings are fighting to death, wifes hate each other passionately. I wonder why we stick to such values. Clearly outweigh the disadvantages. One can not give the men alone to blame, because often pushes the own mother that her son must marry another women. A man who is just making ends meet with what he earned, can not afford a second wife! If the second woman also gets children, then it is irresponsible in my opinion! Most children suffer in these circumstances because it will all be held on their backs. They have to starve, the atmosphere is usually aggressive, the Education is poor or not available, parents have no time for their children. There is an ongoing battle between the women competitors, who has the most children, who cooks the best, who provides the best sex, which is the most beautiful woman...

That's why I do not like polygamy! I believe that women like Funke Akindele should be a role model for us women. Are you grew up in a polygamous family, if so what experience you had? What reasons are there for polygamy?
