#Nigerians #Nostalgic and Worried as #ShopRite packs up to exit the #Country after 15 years


With the Covid19 lockdown, job losses and unknown source of income for many, more are still about to lose their jobs in Nigeria as the famous South African supermarket ShopRite are planning to exit the country after 15 years of its existence.

For the grocery retailer to make the rather certain decision to exit the Most populated Country of the Continent after 15 years of activities, then it most have suffered a significant issue.

According to Instablog9ja, the Cape-Town retailer has started a formal process to consider the potential sale of all or a majority stake in its supermarkets in Nigeria, it said in a trading statement for the 52 weeks to end in June released on Monday.

I’m the statement , ShopRite said the results for he year do not reflect any of their operations in Nigeria, as it will be classified as discontinued operation.

The supermarket contributed 11.6% to group sales, and reported 1.4% Decline in sales since 2018. South African operations contributed 78% of overall sales and saw 8.7% rise for the year. As a result of lockdown , customers visit declined 7.4% but the average basket spend increased by 18.4%

The issue now being that this retail supermarket for 15 years has given Nigerians some sort of hangout spots, Jobs, cheaper purchases and a sense of excitement and that is about to me taken away from them.

But they are hoping that the local one man supermarkets will take advantage of this exit to grow their own chain of supermarkets and promote the locally own goods, there by giving jobs. Nigerians are also hoping that the president and law makers will equally come up with a way to take advantage of this exit.

Meet the Proudly #successful 57 year old #Male #Igbo #hairdresser


This will go well for those who understand Igbo language. He is surely an inspiration and I felt the need to promote this son of the soil. What stood out for me is that he said his children (males and females) who are all University graduates are now doing the same line of business and making a living out of it, owing to the fact that there are no jobs in Nigeria.

He also said that he believes that if ever there is something called reincarnation, he will return back to this line of job along side his love for music.

The entire family has gone from making a living out of this trade from Mother, father, and children, to making it so successful that they have had a high number of apprentices pass through them to become their own bosses. A business tradition best known amongst the Igbo nation of Nigeria.

What I got from this man right here that got me inspired, is that he is loves his handwork alot. He added that handwork will always surpass schooling and white collar jobs, because with handwork, you can do that Jon until the day you drop dead, whereas who collar jobs will always need to be employed before they can perform that line of duty.

I love it. Thank you to BBCnewsigbo for this inspirational documentary.

View this post on Instagram

On May 24, 2020, as Cynthia Morgan became the lead trending topic on Twitter NG, May D has also weighed in with his story. . He took to his Twitter account and wrote, "For your information I was staying in their boys squatters with their driver and their cook just one room all of us shared a toilet and I had big songs and also the other side of their twin duplex was empty! Now! I slept on brand new television carton used my shirt as cover cloth." . You might remember that in May 2011, it was announced that May D signed to the P Square-owned Square Records. He then featured on a remix of 'Chop My Money' by P Square and alongside Akon. A short while after, Square Records also shot videos like 'Soundtrack' and 'Ile Ijo' for the University of Lagos graduate, May D. . Then in August 2012, May D announced his split from Square Records and announced his own label, Confam Entertainment. Before he signed to Square Records, he was best known for his hook on Kel's 'Too Fine' and as the rapper on Alaye's SugarKane Records. Alaye is the rapper who featured on P Square's 'Temptation' in the 2000s. . At the time, Jude 'Engees' Okoye said, "We at Northside and Square records wish him all the best in his career and life." . But in January 2013, Jude Okoye told HipOn TV that, "We sign in artistes as our way of giving back to the society, and by the time they become known, we let them be. However when May D came in, he wanted more than that, he wanted to be Psquare, a name that we have struggled to be built for years…” . Recently, May D released an EP titled, May Day.

#Gabunion sets aside her #WCW to honour the industry #blackwomen who have earned her respect


With her number of years in Hollywood, she has seen it all and knows where everyone will end up based on their persistence and attitude towards their trade and others. So when Gabrielle Union, Mrs Dwayne Wade, Mummy to Savage baby Kavia Wade, tells you that she is impressed by you, then you are doing something good.

For her WCW, she is shining the light on those who have not gotten enough light on them, but yet are doing so good that the light has no option than to find them and shine on them. For the part three wednesdays, here are the first three sets of people who have made the 47 year old woman proud.

from @gabunion This week’s #WCW goes out to a mother-daughter power duo — @zoeisabellakravitz and Lilakoi Moon. I wanted to highlight the bond between mothers and daughters as I try to make my way as a new mom with babygirl.

I’ve always admired the obvious love, respect and nurturing village Zoe’s parents created and how beautiful it has been to witness as a mom just trying to figure it all out. Talk about two strong and talented women.

Zoe is the daughter of beautiful Lilakoi and is truly making a name for herself. From being the lead of her band Lolawolf to landing meaningful roles on the big screen she has been a legend in the making for the past few years now.

Let me also point out she is a flat-out fashion goddess and got it from her mama 😉. Lilakoi has inspired me for years with her class, effortlessly cool style, and kindness. Leave it to this mother daughter duo to steal your heart…@kaaviajames look forward to these type of moments! Let us lift them up in the light of goodness and hold them there.

Reposted from @gabunion This week’s #WCW is the stunning and dynamic South Sudanese-Australian model, Adut Akech Bior. She spent her early years in a refugee camp in Kenya, and she attributes this life of violence and fear to what taught her the power of gratitude .

In school she was bullied for her skin tone and her gap, and now she has owned those aspects of herself and  made  it into a brand of self love!  She started her modeling career at 16 years old, and just three years later has graced the cover of countless magazines and has garnered awards and honors like: , 2019 BFA – Model of The Year, 2019 Industry vote – Model of The Year, 2019 Time – 100 NEXT List… just to name a few.

Beyond her beauty, she is set to work with the U.N. to help refugees at her former camp, and one day she wants to build a school, a hospital, or a modeling agency in South Sudan. Keep on shining. Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there. – #regrann

The proud moment #TiwaSavage spotted her music video on a billboard in Times Square #album #tiwasavage #timesquare #Nigeria


There is nothing as beautiful as getting to the stage where you see your dreams come true after putting in the hard work it requires. Tiwa is one consistent singer who has over the years learnt to over look the intensity of distractions thrown at her by those who try to come for her age and career for one reason or the other. She is one of those people who will always be a role model to the black girl who came from nothing and is headed for her dreams. Seeing your work on billboards in time square is something that even the Americans consider a big success, not to talk about the Nigerian girl who came from nothing. This is a big deal for Tiwa whose Album made this beautiful  appearance on times Square walls and is incredibly a reason to rejoice.
