Onyeka Nwelue: How Wole Soyinka Saved My Life
“Fairytales do come true”, Frank Sinatra sang,” it could happen to you”.

Years ago, on a certain Sunday night, around 9.15pm, I was snoring away in my bed, sleeping soundly, maybe, when my father woke up: “Wole Soyinka is on NTA!” My eyes just cleared immediately. I ran out of the room and sat, beery-eyed before the TV and watched as the man in beautiful white hair read poems with a musical background to it. My father kept looking at me and he could sense the joy that engulfed me each time we talked about Wole Soyinka, read about him or even saw him on TV. My father had newspaper clips of Wole Soyinka, saved for me.

Right at the start of the final, she showed her support of Germany in the World Cup final with a (very weird-looking) Photoshopped image of her in a Germany jersey. She would later make the image her avatar. And later in the day, because she’s Rihanna and she can, the singer then got to meet stars of the Germany team and get a series of pictures with them.

NEW SONG: Stephen Keshi — Astra P Ft. Lekadot @AstRaP_King @Lekadotni

Stephen Keshi, Astra P, Lekadot

On June 20 2014, the 20th FIFA World Cup kicked off in Brazil. Among the participants are the Nigerian National Team, led by their Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, a former football defender who led the team to victory at the 2013 AFCON in South Africa. So, what does any of this have to do with the new release from Astra-P[@AstRaP_King]? Absolutely nothing. But you'll find the linkage interesting as the NMMNG crew rapper(@McNMMNG) and Lekadot[@Lekadotni], of The Factory Pack, grace the song with punchlines and wordplay involving much knowledge of football and women. Hence the concept of the song which, ironically, appeals to the ladies. Such finesse, such energy. I'm sure you 'never experred it!'
