5 things you’re likely to discover on a visit to Kalakuta Republic

Kalakuta is live, yet static film roll of Fela’s life and essence, in rebranded magnificence. Fela is the greatest Nigerian artist ever and arguably the most important African act to have lived.He would have been 80 years old yesterday. In some ways, Fela might have been the quintessential table shaker of his time, but he’s as important today as he was then.He’s not just a musical icon either, he was a pop culture pinnacle that was ahead of his time and for that, his genius and daredevil appetite defined his path and created a legacy.You cannot be a legacy if you play it safe.Kalakuta RepublicKalakuta Republic was Fela’s home at Idi-Oro, Agege road, Mushin Lagos, where he housed his family and band members and where the madness and legendary things went down. It was where he created a diversion from FESTAC ’77, that became a global spectacle.It was the enclave that housed global superstars like Stevie Wonder, who grew addicted to the drug that was Fela’s eccentricities within its bowels. It was where Paul McCartney smoked the best weed his life. It was where Mama Olufunmilayo Ransome-Kuti was maltreated by zombies of the Nigerian military — ‘scars’ from which she never recovered.It was there that Fela got arrested on multiple occasions for fighting for Nigeria’s liberation from the military core tearing it apart and mortgaging its future on the platform of power.It was also there that his $1 million proceeds from a record deal got carted away by members of the Nigerian military. The sands of Kalakuta document Nigerian history.If only sands could talk… If only musings of the sand could be translated into plain text. It can’t…However, from what we see, we will document the importance of a Kalakuta to any visitor and what they scream in hushed voices to tourists who hope to feel the soul of Fela through such visits.You will feel the soul, albeit a recreation. But here are the five things you’d notice on a visit t Kalakuta Republic;1.) Props: the mock art of his shoes, music instruments, statues in regalia, family portraits Fela was many things, but some of those things were afforded by his fashion accessories that typified his risqué fashion choices — sometimes, involving only pants. Asides that, he was music and enjoyed a somewhat close relationship with his family. His idea of living centred around nonconformism.The fundamentals of that are exemplified by the props you find at Kalakuta.2.) Fela’s GraveOn the day Fela died was buried, I was but a lad, but I remember how his body was left for people to see in a glass coffin — if memory serves.In some ways, I only had a rudimentary knowledge of Fela’s music, but playground rumors amongst 5-year olds about unfounded embellishments or even total fabrications will shock you in my generation.Asides India vs. Nigeria madness, you heard rumours that Fela bought a whole airplane to transport vegetables and greens to shame military leaders.In a lot of ways, that moment probably told me something I wanted about my life. They didn’t allow children in, but my mother somehow found a way.Seeing his grave is surreal, but so are tombs that are now home to great men. His resting place will definitely fill you with some kind of emotion.3.) Fela’s Room Fela’s room is a collection of artsy eccentricities of a Maverick and the carefully selected items of a connoisseur. The man was attractively complicated, but that was the entire attraction about him.Though his room has been embellished with extra detail, you still feel some closeness to Fela in that space, especially when you hear tales from a familiar folk while in there.You see his clothes, his shoes, his bed, and other things. It’s like a curation of the finer things that soared in worth through genius.ALSO READ: Things you didn’t know about Kalakuta4.) Paper cuttings of Fela’s political exploits as an activist Fela feared nothing and that made him dare some mad things. He was the daredevil who couldn’t stomach what his people suffered, so he dared death.Reportedly, some Kalakuta boys even beat some errant members of the Nigerian Military, which brought hell on Kalakuta. Fela lost his money, his freedom and started losing his mother that day.Those cuttings highlight the different things Fela did to stand out in his generation. How he found the strength is still beyond me.5.) The Fela EssencePeople like Fela have a spirit and with that comes an essence, nigh a culture that rarely dies.Fela lives in and even in the walls of Kalakuta in 2018, a walk will tell you they’re laced with the essence of Fela, sometimes, you almost reach out and touch it.

Players who got their start playing 5-a-side football

There is no better endorsement for the 5-a-side format than that of arguably the two greatest players in the history of football. In an interview with FIFA.com Cristiano Ronaldo confessed that, “If it wasn’t for futsal (5-a-side football), I wouldn’t be the player I am today”.Messi made a similar admission in his own FIFA.com interview explaining, “As a little boy in Argentina, I played futsal on the streets and for my club. It was tremendous fun, and it really helped me become who I am today.” There is no better endorsement for the 5-a-side format than that of arguably the two greatest players in the history of football.Messi and Ronaldo are, however, not the only international superstars who honed their skills playing 5-a-side football.1. Pele:Widely considered as one of the greatest player of all time, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, more commonly known as Pelé, is the highest scoring player in professional football history. He’s won an numerous awards including World Player Of The Century, Football Player Of The Century, and FIFA’s Ballon d’Or. Growing up in poverty, Pelé started playing football from a young age using stuffed socks or a grapefruit as a replacement for a ball he could not yet afford. In his mid-teens, he joined a futsal team called Radium in his hometown of Bauru. He recalls “It’s a lot quicker than 11-man football.  You have to think really quickly because everyone is close to each other.” According to Pele, the confidence he gained playing 5-a-side was invaluable to his football career.2. Xavi Hernandez:Spanish all-star midfielder, Xavier “Xavi” Hernandez Creus was the first player in Barcelona’s history to play 150 international matches and is considered to be one of the best midfielders of all time. When discussing the benefits of 5-a-side football with UEFA, he explained that, “Perhaps in regular football you cannot appreciate the talent. Everything is more physical. But in 5 a-side, you have small details of quality, class and tactical aspects.”3. Neymar Jr:Sao Paulo native, Neymar (Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior), made waves by winning four consecutive Player of the Year awards by the time he was 21. Like the other players on this list, Neymar honed his skills playing futsal on the streets of his home town. In a recent interview, Neymar explained that, “5 a-side football helps a lot because you need to think quickly. It’s a more dynamic game and today in Europe there’s not much space so you need to think quicker.”4. Ronaldinho:Much like many Brazilian football stars, Ronaldinho (Ronaldo de Assis Moreira) grew up in a poor neighbourhood and turned to 5-a-side in the streets of his hometown at a very young age. Many football experts point to his start with 5-a-side in developing his unique playing style that confused his opponents and delighted audience globally. Discussing his time playing futsal, Ronaldinho explained “It’s played in a very small space and the ball control is different to regular soccer. To this day, my ball control is pretty similar to a futsal player’s control.”As the Betway 5s League continue this weekend, teams from around Lagos will compete for their place in the playoffs.

Nigerians need a change in habit as we mark Global Handwashing Day

Several studies have found that when children regularly wash their hands with effective antibacterial soap such as Dettol, the rate at which diarrhoea spreads is cut by more than half. I On October 15, 2018, millions of people including children in over 100 countries around the world will celebrate Global Handwashing Day. School children will come together to wash their hands and spread the word about how handwashing with soap before eating, after using toilets, and after playing in public places is a cheap and effective way to prevent communicable diseases. Several studies have found that when children regularly wash their hands with effective antibacterial soap such as Dettol, the rate at which diarrhoea spreads is cut by more than half. In the same vein, deaths resulting from acute respiratory infections are cut drastically through effective handwashing practices. Ever since the inception of Global Handwashing Day about a decade ago, communities, national leaders worldwide and global brands like Reckitt Benckiser, makers of Dettol have used October 15, every year to raise awareness and reinforce the call for improved hygiene practices. Dettol has also been leading the charge of educating people around the world including Nigerians on the risks of disease-bearing germs and the benefits of handwashing, especially with the younger generation. This is critical, as research has shown that children suffer disproportionately from diseases which can be prevented with proper sanitation and hygiene. No doubt, handwashing is a major step to achieving healthy living and good hygiene amongst children and the broader family. It is a very important and effective ‘partner’ to vaccination and medical interventions in the control of infectious diseases, especially in communities where access to basic amenities and infrastructure are lacking. In Nigeria, Dettol has been a champion for good health and hygiene for over 50 years, and according to the General Manager, RB West Africa, Mr. Dayanand Sriram, the company believes that it is important for societies to inculcate good hygiene and sanitation habits such as proper handwashing at an early age. “A simple act of washing hands with soap can prevent illnesses and arrest diarrhoea related deaths. This is why Dettol is continuing with the tradition of driving habit change, and provision of needed infrastructure,” he added. Over the past 7 years, Dettol has provided several handwashing sites and educated over 7 million children, parents and teachers about the importance of handwashing through the School Hygiene Program, which is a mass education initiative about proper handwashing and hygiene habits.

Fake Sharp Guy: Twitter lady posts screenshots of an employer who asks for “weekend”...

Apparently, the employer had stolen her number off her CV, which she sent or posted, in search of employment On Saturday, October 13, 2018, in a country swarmed by insane numbers of yearly graduates, to meet already existent backlogs of unemployed graduates making people desperate for employment, a Twitter User, Adufemi @meejee94 posted her experience with a perverted employer. Apparently, due to her desperation to get a job, she sent her Curriculum Vitae (CV) to someone to help her secure a job or boost her chances of getting a job, but this said unnamed pervert lifted her number off her curriculum vitae, contacted her on WhatsApp and asked for sex ON WEEKENDS, “once in a while.”Guess what the job was, for all that ‘hard work’?
