​NIGERIAN PIDGIN: Still Nigeria's Motor Park English? - By Sampson Malachy

Image
Years back, while I was still a toddler in Calabar, the easiest language to flow with folks and peers was Pidgin English.

This was because of its dexterity and street acceptance.

I remember vividly, when I was flogged by my teacher in front of the class for speaking ‘’Nigerian Pidgin’’ which was out rightly referred to as the ‘’Motor park English’’ – (Simplified and informal English for Touts and nuisance in the society).

After the incident, I was forced to hate the language of the ‘’street’’ and the common man.

Today, Nigerian pidgin has evolved. Brands want to relate with it; because it is the simplest means of reaching out to every people in different clime – (Rural or City).

We now have RADIO and TV stations that produce pidgin content and I am sure my teacher listens to and enjoys them as well.

There have always been arguments as to which Nigerian Language should be made the national language.

No consensus has been reached from such arguments in times past as a result of Languag…

Wetin Be Good Friday?

The Bible no tell Christians say make dem remember Christ death on any particular day.  But the same Bible give us freedom to decide on top dis mata. For Romans 14:5 e talk say, “One man fit consida one day more sacred pass another; another man fit consida everyday as de same tin. But all man suppose believe for hin own heart as e take be.”

 The bible don tell us say make we remember Christ death by observing the lord’s supper. 1st  Corinthians 11:24-26 declare say, “...do this in remembrance of me...for whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.”

So why we dey call am Good Friday sef? Wetin de jjews and romans do Jesus no be good tin na!

Published: Sunday, 19 March 2017



Mr. Anthony Onwuchekwa, a.k.a Tony Doe gives us a peep into his broadcasting career, the challenges facing the Nigerian media and his latest project, "LOKAL FM".
In a recent chat with Wisdom Okorie, the experienced broadcaster revealed how his sojourn into the media world began and spoke passionately about his internet radio station.

I'm Tony Onwuchekwa and my media moniker is Tony Doe. My media journey began in 2001 at LTV (Lagos Television) / LWT (Lagos Weekend Television) where I interned as a TV production assistant. I picked up my basic radio skills from Eko 89.7 around 2004, also as an intern. I’ve worked with radio continental 102.3FM as a producer/presenter and City 105.1FM as production manager.”

On his views about the quality of today’s OAPs, he said,

“Fortunately there are lots of professionals available ensuring that the new voices get guided accordingly. It's a thriving industry but one th…

Angie Martinez: Radio is familiar, It’s also information from people you know and trust.

March 10th, 2017



She is fondly known as “The Voice of New York.” Angie Martinez launched her career at radio two decades ago and has extended her personal brand as a successful actress and hit-making rapper, and author, via a New York Times bestselling memoir, “My Voice.”

 “The Angie Martinez Show” airs 2pm-6p on iHeartMedia urban “Power 105.1” WWPR New York—its base—and  weekends on urban sister “The Beat 103.5” WMIB Miami. Before that, she was a mainstay (and often controversial personality) at Emmis-New York’s rhythmic CHR “Hot 97” WQHT.

Here’s a storybook career tale: Martinez started at 16 answering request lines at Hot 97, connected with DJ Funkmaster Flex, began working as his protΓ©gΓ© and quickly manicured the unique qualities to commandeer the radio mic. Aside from radio, as an artist, she is a Grammy-nominated act with top 10 Hot 100 and top five Hip-Hop/R&B smashes.

Late last year, Martinez signed a development deal with Endemol S…

An APril Fool's Day Prank Of Humongous Proportions

Image
A professor of history at Boston University, Joseph Boskin explained that the practice of April Fool’s Day began during the reign of Constantine, when a group of court jesters and fools told the Roman emperor that they could do a better job of running the empire. Constantine, amused, allowed a jester named Kugel to be king for one day. Kugel passed an edict calling for absurdity on that day, and the custom became an annual event.
"In a way,it was a very serious day. In those times fools were really wise men. It was the role of jesters to put things in perspective with humor." Boskin explained.
The Associated Press ran an article on Boskin’s findings in 1983 and it was printed by many newspapers. It took a couple of weeks for the AP to realize that they'd been victims of an April Fools' joke themselves as it turned out Boskin had made it all up!
