MOANA Will Wow the Cinemas With Awesome Wonders of the Pacific



About Moana


For centuries, the greatest sailors in the world masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, 3,000 years ago, their voyages stopped for a millennium – and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes "Moana," a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who is inspired to leave the safety and security of her island on a daring journey to save her people. Inexplicably drawn to the ocean, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) convinces the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) to join her mission, and he reluctantly helps her become a wayfinder like her ancestors who sailed before her. Together, they voyage across the open ocean on an action-packed adventure, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills her quest and discovers the one thing she's always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker ("The Little Mermaid," "Aladdin," "The Princess & the Frog"), produced by Osnat Shurer ("Lifted," "One Man Band"), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa'i, "Moana" sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.

Popular Nigerian Photographer,  Kelechi Amani Obi has stumbled upon an amazing looking young Yoruba black beauty, Bukola who was hawking pillows on the streets on Lagos Island.

He saw her whilst doing a photo documentary on popular Nigerian/American singer Jidenna when he visited Nigeria.
“This is Bukola . Some weeks back I was shooting @jidenna on Broad street Lagos and in between takes I saw her across the street selling pillows . Had to call her and give my number. ” if you’re interested in modeling please give me a call” I said. Well she came to the studio and I called my number one MUA @bimpeonakoya and this is what we came up with. I think she will make a great model. What do you think? #africanbeauty #diamondintherough.”

The former colleagues are also former lovers. Their torrid two-year love affair ended bitterly when Gbenga learned that his wife was pregnant, and Dara quit without collecting her shares in the company. Her lawsuit seeks compensation, but what she really wants is for Gbenga to admit that he raped her after the breakup.

The deeper the questioning, the more is revealed in this complex tale of betrayal in both the office and the bedroom.

The Amnesia of Ingratitude


Amnesia is widespread among majority of Nigerians. And the most common is what I call the Amnesia of Ingratitude by the following.
Ungrateful siblings;
Ungrateful relations;
Ungrateful girlfriends;
Ungrateful boyfriends;
Ungrateful lovers;
Ungrateful spouses;
Ungrateful associates and other ingrates are legions.
And ingratitude is actually why majority of Nigerians are broken, forsaken and poor.


There are four types of amnesia afflicting Nigerians.
1. Mental amnesia.
2. Socioeconomic amnesia.
3. Intellectual amnesia and
4. Political amnesia.
