Actress, Georgina Onuoha To Africans: Be Proud Of Our Black Skin As Africans-

Published

on

Veteran actress, Georgina Onuoha has urged Africans to be proud of the continent and bear in mind that we are only truly welcomed in our own continent.

Taking to her Instagram page, she shared a poem she had written about the continent that sounded the appellations of the vast resources Africa stands to boast of.

She intimated that black people should never be shy about the melanin in their skin but portray blackness as a source of pride and satisfaction to the world that would make the other races marvel at the God-given potentials and endowments He has embedded in the continent.

She wrote: Africa My Africa

Africa my Africa
Africa of proud warriors in ancestral savannahs
Africa of whom my grandmother sings
On the banks of the distant river
I have always known you
But your blood flows in my veins
Your beautiful black blood that irrigates the fields
The blood of your sweat
The sweat of your work
The work of your slavery
Africa, tell me Africa
Is this your back that is unbent
This back that never breaks under the weight of humilation
This back trembling with red scars
And saying no to the whip under the midday sun
But a grave voice answers me
Impetuous child that tree, young and strong
That tree over there
Splendidly alone amidst white and faded flowers
That is your Africa springing up anew
springing up patiently, obstinately
Whose fruit bit by bit acquires
The bitter taste of liberty.

BBNaija: You Can’t Last Two Days In Their Shoes, Tacha Slams Those Criticising Saga, Housemates

Published

on

Reality Tv star, Tacha Akide has criticised those judging Big Brother Naija, BBNaija, Season 6 housemates.

Recently, Saga trended on social media for crying over Nini’s disappearance from the house on Wednesday.

His action led to criticism from fans and even celebrities who called him out for focusing on a woman who has a lover outside the house rather than winning the show.

The likes of singer, Orezi went ahead saying he dislike men who lose focus in a game where a huge sum of N90 million is involved just for a woman.

Tacha, who was disqualified from BBNaija Season 4, on Friday warned those criticising housemates to stop judging them as they have no idea what it means to be in the house.

According to her, most of those criticising the housemates cannot last in the house just for two days.

In a video posted on her Instagram story, Tacha said: “People that have not been in a situation have the most to say about it. I think it’s unfair how harsh some people are being on these housemates, they are going through a lot for entertainment.

“Some of you guys can’t last in that house for two days but yet you have the most to say about these housemates. These housemates are just being themselves and don’t know what they are doing but trying to get directions. How dare you have an opinion about how they should grieve or be.

“Don’t judge anybody if you’ve not worn their shoes.”
