Book Review: The African Giant: Risky or at Risk?

"Africans are like the elephant in the zoo," so argues Dr. Pipim in his latest book release titled THE AFRICAN GIANT.
He maintains that Africa is a giant, in more ways than one. But despite its huge resources and human potential, the African continent – led by its most populous nation – poses a threat to the world at large.
Thus, he argues “the African giant is at risk, and therefore risky. The time to mitigate or remove that risk is now. Those to mitigate that risk include you. And how to do so begins by reading this book—THE AFRICAN GIANT—and making a decision to be the change that you want to see, beginning in your own sphere of influence.”
Part I of THE AFRICAN GIANT book is based on Dr. Pipim’s keynote address at an Independence Day event at the Chamber of Commerce and Industries in Lagos, Nigeria, October 1, 2014.


Book review: Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant

Man Booker Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro’s eagerly awaited seventh novel – 10 years in the writing – is set in England sometime around the Sixth Century AD. It’s a dark time, the country is mostly “miles of desolate, uncultivated land; here and there rough-hewn paths over craggy hills or bleak moorland” – a far cry from the well -maintained roads of prior Roman rule. Long abandoned villas, now falling into rack and ruin dot the landscape as proof of a more civilized past. The nation’s most recent history is that of the celebrated King Arthur, a man who won a “great peace” across the land, the legacy of which is that the once warring Saxons and Britons now live side-by-side, their “barbarous past” forgotten.

A theater has canceled the New York premiere of "The Interview" after a group that claimed it hacked Sony Pictures posted a threat against people who go to watch the movie.
On Pastebin, a website that allows for anonymous posts, hackers claiming to be the "Guardians of Peace" said people who see the Sony movie would suffer a "bitter fate."
"The Interview" is a comedy about a plot to kill North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un.
"We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places 'The Interview' be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to," the hacking group said. "The world will be full of fear. Remember the 11th of September 2001."
The Guardians of Peace have told people who live close to movie theaters to keep their distance.
The premiere was scheduled for Thursday at Landmark's Sunshine Cinema in New York. "The Interview" remains set to be released to theaters on Christmas.

Nii Commey to turn National Theatre upside-down with Anticlockwise

Young playwright Nii Commey is ready to turn the National Theater upside-down this Easter with his hugely humorous masterpiece Anticlockwise.
The Romantic Nonsense architect has tested the pulse of the nation; the temperature of the citizenry and is ready to release tension with arguably one of the best satiric performances of all time.
The Playwright described Anticlockwise as a "universally mind blowing piece that depicts every bit of everyday life,  clothed in rigorous humour with a touch of feminine emotions.  It is a play for the youth and the old; for women and for men. There comes a time in our lives  as a people, individuals, nation, continent; in our relationships, finance, health, when things just don’t go the way we want them to; and the more we try to straighten the crookedness of these areas the more dramatic they become."



Raquel is indeed one of the few if not the best vocalist in Ghana and even Africa as she proves that in her latest release this year titled ‘I Won’t Cry’ produced by Ben Kusilin. Raquel is known for bringing her fans Fun, Happy and loving music, she has everlasting hits to her name and her fans range from different age groups from the old to the young. In this new song Raquel shows a more serious side to her music and talks about a different kind of love, one that has been broken and filled with pretense and resentment. Her vocal range on this song is incredibly powerful, emotional and shows growth and strength.
