When the first season of Big Brother Africa premiered in 2003 I was unashamedly stuck, I couldn’t imagine 12 human beings living in a house with cameras everywhere just frolicking around and interacting with each other for my entertainment. To say the first Big Brother was explosive is a mild adjective, it was definitely filled with numerous controversies, from the shower hour which I hated and never watched, to the wild parties, to watching housemates engage in morally questionable acts it was definitely a rude shock especially for African countries who like to hide behind the conservative nature of our culture.

Press Release by NALT CLUB International on the Xenophobic attacks against Nigerians and other African nationals in South Africa.
The National Association of liberation Tigers (NALT); a civil society social movement of over 10,000 Nigerian citizens from different disciplines across the globe, joins the rest of the world to condemn the recent attacks on foreigners especially Nigerians and other Africans nationals in South Africa.
This sad turn of events is a departure from the continent's ongoing re-visioning of African integration as a panacea for African solutions to African problems. NALT decries that this is a set back to our collective will as Africans in stretching out hands of friendship and goodwill across borders.
This further undermines the position of our continent as the new investment destination of the world as well the emerging global power block.

Richard smiled at his neighbors as he made his way back to his house in Surulere, running in the morning always put him on such a high he couldn’t stop smiling at every one. The community here was always so friendly none of them knew he was a policeman and he liked to keep it that way, they hardly ever saw him in his uniform and his car was tinted.
His family had been shocked when he had announced that he wanted to return to Nigeria to work in the police force, he had spent the last fifteen years of his life in the United States of America studying Forensic science, eight years after graduation he had worked as an evidence custodian in one of the Law enforcement agencies in America but last year he had experienced a personal tragedy that changed the course of his career.
