  • Tonnie Iredia & the verdict of history
    Tonnie Iredia & the verdict of history From colonial times till date, it is difficult to rate any Nigerian election as successful. An overview of Nigerian elections would confirm this. What can be called the first national election to form a government of an independent Nigeria was held on December 12, 1959. The outcome was tragic as acid and other corrosive substances were poured into ballot boxes to distort the results of the election. In the Eastern and Northern Regional elections of 1961, the dominant regional political…

    By Mathew Hassan Kukah: How Mohammed Ali Taught Me Magic Hours after he died, David Remnick, Editor of the New Yorker Magazine, penned what will definitely be the most eloquent and elegant obituary of the greatest and the prettiest titled, The Outsized Life of Mohammed Ali. He said Ali was; arguably the most famous person on the planet, known as a supreme athlete, an uncanny blend of power, improvisation, and velocity; a master of rhyming prediction and derision; an exemplar and symbol of racial pride; a fighter, a draft resister,…

  • Sunmi Smart-Cole: It’s the ‘75th shot’
    Sunmi Smart-Cole: It’s the ‘75th shot’ TO many people, his story begins and revolves around photography. That notion seems to be right but it is absolutely wrong. Don’t just think about Sunmi Smart-Cole and visualise photography alone. Doing that may not be a balanced reflection on a journey that commenced 75 years ago in Port Harcourt without the glamour that has largely distinguished it so far. Now, whenever the name crosses your mind, also think barbing, architecture, drumming, and journalism. Though, there are other glitzy fields of endeavour that also add up, the aforementioned, in many ways and different scales, defined the man, whose formal education abruptly ended at 15 because of hunger. With these areas of pursuit being part of his story, it is amazing that he is synonymous with photography in a way that literally subsumed other areas that also contributed in making him a brand. Indeed, Smart-Cole lives and personifies photography like no one had done in Nigeria or better still Africa. Since 1976 when he took to photography, Smart-Cole, who was born on September 25, 1941, to a Nigerian and Sierra Leonean parentage, had applied panache, power and character in a fashion that leaves no room for him not to be admired.…
