One musician who makes massive difference in the African Nigerian Music Industry turned one and we want to go back on this memory with him. I’m in a reflective mood this morning as Gold turns 1. I know it’s only been a year but it feels like a lifetime of hard work hidden in my heart. I released it this day last year with a lot of uncertainty and nervousness and all I can say is God is good. I am not in this business to make disposable music, the goal is for our relationship to be timeless. For this…

And that is just a few of the things they give them stress over. Now it can be argued that this is a global phenomenon but it does not make it any better and this talk was specifically about the situation in Nigeria.…

My Nigerian Experiences presents this week’s couple, Becky and Emmanuel, who are inter-tribal by virtue of origin but have been united by the union of Marriage. A mix between the South-South and the South-East Nigeria. The beautiful couple shows a perfect blend of communication that can work against all odds when time is invested into it.
