NaijaStories.com Launches First Anthology

Naijastories.com is the leading community for Nigerian writers and book lovers, combining elements of a writing critique website and a social networking site. Of Tears and Kisses, Heroes and Villains is Volume 1 of the  'Best of NaijaStories' series.

The 30 stories featured in this anthology were all originally published on this website between March 2010 and March 2011.

REVIEWS

These are stories about us or about our neighbours or something we've encountered in the news. They are what our friends tell us, their pain and joy, their passion and rage, their yearning and their cry against injustice. I enjoyed lots of the stories not just because of their simplicity and brevity but also for freshness they bring to storytelling and public discourse.
- Sylva Nze Ifedigbo. (Author, The Funeral Did Not End)

Here we are, with our abortions, our bereavement, our lust, our petty showdowns, our pederasts, our In-Law wahala, our problems chatting up girls in the diaspora, our memories of childhood, our fights, our incest, our love, our examination stress, our metafictional accounts, our encounters with university campus cults, our broken families, our… well, you get the idea. We rob banks, but we also eat salty beans to show our children we love them.
- Tade Thompson (Writer/Editor)

These short stories are not constrained by the need to attain fame. They all are, first of all, good works written with sharp perspectives that are related to various societal issues. There is a unique allure in every story. They have not been sifted through a Western colander. Support this anthology and show that there is a worthiness of effort in putting it together. This anthology is indeed the birth of writers that have newly been empowered. Go get a copy for yourself.

Press Release from Tchidi's publicist

Our attention has been drawn to a malicious report by a softsell magazine and selected blogs about our client, Tchidi Chikere on the state of his marriage and the reasons behind his decision to walk away from the nine-year union. In the said report, the soft sell publication claimed Tchidi has impregnated an actress, is currently living with the said actress and also planning to tie the knot with her by the end of the year.

The report is at best laughable and absolutely untrue. So that truth will not be turned on its head and silence taken as admission of guilt, we wish to make the following points clear:

Mirror boy Producer Obi Emelonye talks love life, Why He gave one kidney away, new movie "Last flight to abuja"


Nothing will give one a clue that the man most Nollywood's stakeholders have come to love and respect, survives on one kidney. Nobody would even believe it since he exercises and plays football regularly. But then, the reality is that popular filmmaker and winner of The Sun's Creative Man of the Year award, Obi Emelonye is living with one kidney instead of two. In an exclusive interview with Entertainer, the producer of 'Mirror Boy' sheds light on how giving away his kidney to his sibling has altered the course of his life. Excerpts:
 
How does it feel to win The Sun's Creative Man of the Year award, the first of its kind, after just a year of coming into the public consciousness?
We are all God's creatures and I believe He guides our path, and He directs our affairs in this journey of life. So, it is not really our choice, and in the popular Nigerian parlance, "God's time is the best". Actually, it is not something that I chose to happen or something that I fought for to happen, it is something that has happened and I give God the glory.

MP3: Yung L - Red Rose

You may not know the name of the track trailer you hear – Yung L – one of the Grip Boys stands on a song alone and dominates the beat.

  "From the window to the wall, me a tap her easy like ball…" are everyone's favourite lyrics in Iceprince's Magician. Yung L has been singing for a while now, top artist in Jos, he recently moved to Lagos to pursue his passion for music.

  He manages to seduce new listeners to his lyrical play on words. He even manages to play with his lips at the end of this song, when you hear the flute, he is actually blowing through his lips. Popular for being one of Iceprince's bredren – the mob you see come through clubs – Yung L is a dynamic singer, with a new take on the Nigerian/African sound.

  The mix of Chopstix on deck, and Yung L on the vocals and "flute" is really a smooth sexy international sound that still has the Naija vibe.

  Grip Music really is sweet music…Enjoy Red Rose, a befitting introduction of a fresh young artist into the industry! DOWNLOAD
