Tundun Adeyemo The Afriqiyah Experience
Afriqiyah is Libya’s official airline with red, green, yellow and black colours and the numbers 9999 embossed on every aircraft. The numbers 9999 is of course the birth date of the African Union. The entire Afriqiyah Airways consists of modern Airbus 320 – 200, A319-111 & A330-200 aircrafts.

Tundun AdeyemoSnapshots, Mothers’ Day and the Sadiq Khan Effect
This morning, I felt deeply thankful. In this article, I am going to open a window into my life so you can see why I am grateful and what informs my gratitude. Secondly, I am going to wish all mothers a Happy Mothers’ Day. If you live in the UK, don’t panic, you have not missed it, Mothers’ Day has come and gone in the UK. Sadly, I cannot remember when it happened!

Tundun AdeyemoThe Curse of House Husbands
I spent the morning reading up and watching videos of the drama that followed Beyonce’s phenomenal visual album ‘Lemonade’. Yesterday, I followed Tiwa Savage’s story and found profoundly touching her interview on Pulse TV.

Tundun AdeyemoIbadan’s Changing Face
The cool breeze from the calm lake, the quiet humming noise from the different lawn mowers positioned at strategic locations at the very posh Agodi Gardens, Ibadan, keeps me company on this cool Friday morning. The air is fresh and calm and one is reminded of what it was like growing up in Ibadan.

Tundun AdeyemoDunstable Market
Our office overlooks the Dunstable Market. From the casual observer, not much seems to be happening at this market, but for the reflective observer, this old market has a lot going in it. At the side in front of the Wilkinsons shop, are a collection of antique sellers.

Tundun AdeyemoMaids and the Challenges of Life
In South Africa, being a maid is a career option. During the apartheid era, black maids worked in white households, looking after white children. In today’s South Africa, rich people, middle class families and up-and-coming families are able to afford the services of maids.

Tundun AdeyemoA Night Out with Books and Films
I have just come back from what could be described as the most enlightening night of my life. The writer had gone up the motorway to Rugby at Junction 18 of the M1 in United Kingdom, UK, for a literary event. It was advertised as the merger between the arts, science and philosophy.

Tundun AdeyemoThe Changing Faces of Marriage
Ireland is the only country in the world to run a referendum on the legalisation of marriage. It appeared that even Catholicism had no hold upon modernists and traditionalists alike in the Catholic country.

Tundun AdeyemoAn Evening with African Writers
The African Literary Evening was my idea even though I feel I cannot take all the credit for its success. The idea came about from the culmination of several conversations with people over a period of time. The African Literary Evening was an evening of spoken word, poetry recitations, book readings and networking.

Choosing Wisely

Choosing Wisely

This song encouraging Nigerians to “ChooseWisely” in the upcoming elections was sung by sisters, Dinachi and Chibundu Onuzo.

“Making a difference begins with you and me and with our leaders, officials and every Nigerian citizen.”

The song bears a very important message and melodious, which is why it had racked up nearly 1000 views on Youtube within 48 hours of its release.

Benjamin Zephaniah is one of my favourite poets. You only need to listen to him to know why he is one of the greatest black poets that ever lived.

African Literary Evening

The African Literary Evening was an evening of spoken word, poetry recitations, book readings and networking. It was also an evening designed to bring together emerging and successful authors under the same platform to share ideas and interact. There are many events across London that bring men and women in print together, but not many that gather African authors. Read more!
