It has been one year since Ayo Odebisi went on a another kind of going abroad trip. When I heard and looked at his photo, I spontaneously named him “Jimmy”. All the people I love I give them pet names, Paramole’s has been the only posthumous one. In the eulogy “I Will not Mourn for Ayo Odebisi (Paramole)” I wrote what many have said encapsulated his life and what he represented on one page. I will not repeat such here. What I valued most about Odebisi was his perspicacious construction of eudaimonia in the image of the 4-7 Creed, the Creed of the Pyrates Confraternity. His approach to creating the better society could never have been more sincere or practical but it somehow remains on the lofty side to many, apparently.


Those who have come to know and trust death embrace it with love. This is the very foundation of freedom. Oppressors, love no one, not their wives, not their children, not their friends. How can such a person love death? Behind the empty shell of the oppressor he fears all the tests of his worth that matter” – Grimot Nane

Oppression is a test or testing event. There are strange men who habitually oppress others and they commonly do so by the actual practice or simulations of “bone testing”. Bone testing works because it is the violent use of bones by those who claim to be “strong” [bullies?] and can in varying degrees damage the bones, muscles, tissues, and nerves of others, thus securing their submission. Bone testing not only causes ache and hurt, it can. maim and kill too. Why would the oppressed and opressable not fear it? This is oppression by fear. All resistance is broken The next level of oppression is effected by “word testing”. The words of mouth is perhaps the most effectively used human instrument of domination known especially where the hypocrisy of peace and doing good exists. This is the domain of intimidation, scaremongering, perplexity and verbal dehumanisation on one hand and deception, persuasion, feel-good-factors and the sale of hope on the other. This is oppression by mindcontrol. All dissent or oppositions is crushed. Bone and word testing as used to oppress are very physical and psychological, respectively, derived from a wide array ponerological incentives. (more…)

Fire!!! Fire!! I have to say it again, Fire!!! When two or more Otukas are gathered, a fire is nearby ready to consume habitually bad men mercilessly. No ashes remain and the fire is too hot to scream in. Keg of rum and seas of brine cannot quench it. The fire though is always a potentiality and it is only the purity of the human spirit the Otuka encases that turns him away from such an eschatology of the wicked. Inevitably, sometimes it has to done. Plenty of indications nto announcement required.

In the UK and the USA, the spectre of Nigerians achieving academic excellence in institutions of higher learning everywhere has increasingly etched for itself a significant space in the folklore of immigration. Such widespread excellence is even used with dubious effect to show how Blacks born in America or in the UK are simply lazy, unambitious and even of criminal disposition. This is certainly the Hegemon’s and Black Conservative’s comfort; one side of an overstated story. The prospect of Uber, the mobile app taxi business, losing its UK licence for gross corporate irresponsibility exposed a most understated side of the story in a shockwave. (more…)
