In Black Panther, T'Challa returns home as king of Wakanda but finds his sovereignty challenged by a long-time adversary, in a conflict with global consequences.

In Nigeria, in the last 4 days, it has been on an all time buzz as Nigerians throng the cinemas to secure a ticket. The accompanying costumes and excitement has been colourful. WIth reviews more in favour of the movie, here is one of the feedback as written by Okey Resh Azubuike amongst thousands of others.

People are asking what's the big deal with the #blackpanther rave...I will tell you. Finally there is an elevation and a picture to dream upon. The Caucasian talks and acts superior and intact keeps it that way through movies and images that are presented as a recurring truth which has to later be accepted as so. I can't explain the sensation I get by just looking the pictures and the preview. Someone jumps inside us that has always been there. Now we can take the lid off our Psyche to explore our God-given omnipotence. Wakanda is where we all as African want to have our citizenship. A place of pride and great wealth... A place where dreams come true...not what is but what should be.
It's not a talk of inferiority complex but what every great African heart will resonate with.
200million dollars committed to the hands of African Americans and people of African decent and we have one of the greatest movies of our time... nothing is wrong with the black man after all. This is hope to dream on...#blackpanther 

We celebrate the crew, producers and cast of Black Panther as it has broken box office with $218Million and tops StarWars in the opening!

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
