WHO & UN = BEASTS OF NO NATION

Wednesday 22 April 2020 by Mabinuori Idowu (aka ID)
Globalization and the actual world model economy are again put to question with this COVID-19 pandemic. In a world economy where everything is ‘made in China’ including “global maladies”, isn’t it time to impose a general world standard on the question of outsourcing of industries?

LADY

Friday 17 May 2019 by Mabinuori Idowu (aka ID)
In the song “LADY” Fela criticised the use of White Western values and standards of feminine beauty in Africa. However to his detractors songs such as this are interpreted as anti-feminist or simply “macho”. To those who really knew him, he was never anti feminist as he was only saying African (...)

Monday 18 February 2019 by Mabinuori Idowu (aka ID)
