Introducing the coolest way to learn about Nigeria - MBTN

Happy Friday!!! How has your week been? Well it doesn’t matter now… its Friday, and we hope you have a fabulous weekend. We certainly will at MBTN :)

So you've been thinking about a possible move back to Nigeria, read a few MBTN interviews, spoken to your friends, and done a bunch of research online? You’ve been looking for answers to questions like: ‘how do I find that top notch job as a lawyer in Lagos?’, ‘what is the process for registering a business in Port Harcourt?’, ‘how do I find customers for the tech start up I’m going to launch in Abuja when I move back next month?’

What better way is there to get answers to your questions than speaking to folks on the ground who have moved back and have physically experienced and ‘conquered’ whatever challenge or question you might be thinking about?

“We Almost Forgot” Première in Abuja After 10 years in Paris

“We Almost Forgot” Première in Abuja After 10 years in Paris, the choreographer Qudus Onikeku returns to Nigeria to present his latest contemporary dance production “We Almost Forgot”. The premiere will be held in Berlin on June 17th, then in Lagos on June 24th, in Abuja on June 26th , and in Paris on November 3rd . Born in Nigeria in 1984, Qudus Onikeku is the Artistic Director and founder of YK Projects. He is a graduate of The National Higher School of Circus Arts, France. For more than a decade, he has retained a presence in the Nigerian choreographic scene, and is part of the new generation of international creators from Africa. He is known globally, for his solo works, writings and research projects. He was awarded “Dancer of the year” by the future awards in Nigeria in 2009, while in October 2010, his solo piece titled “My Exile is in my head” won “the best solo performance” during the Africa-wide dance encounters “Dansel’Afriquedanse” in Bamako – Mali, and the 2012 “New choreographic talent” in France. Qudus is presently involved in various artistic projects and collaborations in Lagos, where he operates The QDanceCenter. “We Almost Forgot”, Qudus’ latest creation, features on stage 6 dancers and one actress of varied backgrounds and identities (Nigeria, Gabon, Morocco, Algeria, Madagascar & France). Through the use of high energy movements, story-telling, singing and music, the performance aims at questioning the past, present and body memory. The idea is to make a fiction of witness accounts of stories of individuals who have witnessed wars and crises, and to evoke the capacity of our bodies to also keep the memory of traumas.

MBTN: “Don’t rely on your ‘connections’, leverage the people and resources around you” – Peter Akeredolu

Hello MBTN Family! My name is Abdul-Wahab Oyesiji Peter Akeredolu, also known to people as AOP. Currently, I work for the British Deputy High Commission in Lagos and I moved back to Nigeria in July 2013.

Awesome! Let’s start from the beginning, what are some of your fondest memories from childhood?

I am the first-born of my parents and was born on the 21st of January 1987; I grew up in London with my mother and two younger sisters. Growing up, I remember how I loved playing football and listening to music, my life as a teenager was about music and football. I desired to pursue a career as a professional footballer, however that didn’t happen. As a teenager, I was neither focused nor ambitious. Consequently, I failed all my GCSE’s but my mother gave me two options, which were to either attend University or move out of her house. Ha-ha!

Bill Gates launches chicken programme to help the poor in Africa

Microsoft founder, Bill Gates who is famous for his philanthropic ventures especially in Africa has launched a novel programme to help Africa's poor and it involves plenty of chicken.
The billionaire philanthropist says raising and selling the birds can be efficient to tackle extreme poverty and to this end, he has promised to donate 100,000 chickens.
Based on his theory, farmer breeding five hens could earn more than $1,000 a year about $300 more than the poverty line. He added that the goal was to help 30% of the rural families in sub-Saharan Africa raise improved breeds of vaccinated chickens, up from the current 5%.

At the launch of the campaign in New York, Mr Gates said:

"These chickens are multiplying on an ongoing basis so there's no investment that has a return percentage anything like being able to breed chickens."
