#wmcon: Wikimedia came calling and I answered with joy

The phone call:
It was a really hot evening as has been the case for a while in the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria and suddenly, my phone rang. I picked it up and in my characteristic warm and friendly manner, had a fantastic chat with Olushola Olaniyan who currently provides leadership direction for the Wikimedia User Group Nigeria. He calls me every now and then to find out how I am faring and to know if there is any support that he can offer to the recently created Hub of the User Group in Abuja, Nigeria.

L-R: Olaniyan Olushola (Director, Wikimedia Community User Group Nigeria), Katherine Maher (Executive Director, Wikimedia Foundation) and Blossom Ozurumba (Curator, Abuja Hub of the Wikimedia Community User Group Nigeria)

Download, Install and Use keyboard layouts for Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amir Aharoni who works as the Product Manager, Language, Wikimedia Foundation. It was a need inspired meeting as I was attending the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin, Germany and had as one of my expectations, to get sorted out with the Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba keyboard for my Mac Book.

Bang and Olufsen Store in Abuja, Nigeria Forgot That Arrogance Is Not Always A Virtue

I have seen brilliant Ads and more in my life and I have stopped to admire and soak in the pleasure of the experience. I have also seen some truly crazy Ads and I am yet to recover from the taste that they left on my emotions. From Pepsi to Shear Moisture to our very own Chicken Republic in Nigeria, the conversation has remained un-paused as folks lend their voice to the morality and relevance of some of their Ad offerings.

I recently came across the Ads below that were apparently commissioned in year 2016 by a Bang & Olufsen store outlet in Abuja, Nigeria:

Here are some of my thoughts at first glance:

Shortly, in addressing the conversation tilt that bragging and arrogance is a culture of Bang & Olufsen, I believe that:

  • A decade-long attempt by the brand to change the perception of being the stupid blonde of consumer electronics has yielded positive results. This Nigerian Ad is quite retrogressive.
  • The weird thing is the folks that the Ad seeks to insult largely do not have a clue about the brand.

The conversation is still ongoing and I think it will remain so as other crazy Ads before it.

Different Photo Shades of my Daddy

I grew up being the perfect daddy’s girl. I never questioned my daddy’s love for me as I was completely assured of it. My love for almost all the things that I am passionate about, stemmed from my daddy.

From politics to writing to compèring, I cannot explain it but he unconsciously shaped me to become passionate about these things. I remember with fondness, how we will travel to remote villages to preach God’s word as he was a lay preacher and the joy I felt when he will call me to the pulpit to read the Igbo bible to the joy of the congregants.

What of the moments when I will have squabbles with Ozurumba Uzoma and Mazi Udoka Ozurumba, and he will always come to my rescue. There was this unflinching support which I thoroughly milked to the consternation of my brothers. Lol!

I was his favourite chef not minding that my mummy, Amaechi Ozurumba showed me the ropes. I always look forward to those moments when I would place a deliciously prepared meal before him and he will eat with relish. What of those moments when I will always go to school with the joy that school fees drive will not affect me in any way. My daddy will either make sure that he has paid or pen a letter that I will hand deliver to the school assuring them of payment. They always obliged and I am thankful.

Daddy Anozie Ozurumba, I love you so much and I pray to show this beyond words and beyond anything that I have done. You are not only the best daddy that a girl can ask for, you are the best Grand Pa, ever. Daniel and Purity are super blessed to have you. As you clock 72 today, I wish you a fantastic birthday and a superb year ahead of you. God bless you abundantly.
I love you so much, daddy.

I have no properties to bequeath thee

I have two wonderful children that have helped me discover myself, undiscover myself and rediscover myself, over the years. Daniel who happens to be the most curious individual I have ever come across will certainly push you to learn more with his endless questions. I am subtly beginning to communicate to him that he can also be the answer provider with my recent replacement of all football related news sourced from google with news directly gotten from him. Purity is the studious type that will first consult the dictionary and afterwards, ensure you do not take a breather till you fill her in with all the right responses she seeks.

We recently commenced a school hunt journey and I am super impressed at the resource they have both provided in the course of the hunt. We have seen some scary tuition fees and we have equally seen some that have brought out the business manager in me wondering how they manage to break even. In a recent school hunt trip, we got talking and the conversation slowly trickled down to Leo Tolstoy’s “How Much Land Does a Man Need?” After a series of debate, interruptions and well considered silence, we all came to the agreement that “Six feet from his head to his heels was all he needed.”

With that cue, I then delved into a talk session that I have always had in my bucket list which sought to communicate to them that I have no properties to bequeath anyone in the future. Now, this will sound a bit weird but it is true. I have always been pragmatic and practical when it came to acquisitions. I would rather rent a studio flat in the City Centre than travel to the suburbs to rent a massive duplex even at the same cost. It is a good thing to have the joy that comes with spaciousness but it is a better thing to enjoy a traffic-free commute. It is a good thing to be able to afford the extra diesel needed to power your generator but it is a better thing to enjoy a sound sleep without the irritating noise that comes with the power generator.


Suffice to say that I ensured every component of my thoughts got passed across and I can officially state that it has been ticked as done and dusted in my bucket list. As we speak, Daniel and Purity have been cloaked with the consciousness that the plan is to give them the best education ever that will prepare them to purchase their own properties when the time comes. There is no plan to amass all that for them at the expense of a quality education plan. This knowledge I believe will further improve how they currently embrace the need to work hard and get results.

Emoji(s) and their Nigerian meaning

‪‪I love the Nigerian Pidgin expression. It brings life to a conversation in a way that the Queen’s English cannot fathom. It adds the much needed spark that can fully express the intent of the speaker thereby ensuring that the listener is not at sea with the interpretation.

Even a simple emoji is not left behind when the pidgin English is at work. It is my pleasure to share a few that I constructed and I will be happy to update this as my creativity updates. Please enjoy.

‪👍🏼 Na you dey reign.‬

‪😍 I love you pass my Mama.‬

‪😳 Which kain wahala be this?‬

‪😕 Your father.‬

‪👌🏼 Na you biko.‬

‪👊🏼 Chop knuckle.‬

‪🙌🏻 Boys are loyal.‬

‪😎 I just dey observe.‬

‪🚶🏾 I just dey waka pass.‬

‪🤔 Make I think first.‬

‪👏🏾 You too much.‬

‪🤑 You too like money.‬

‪Oya add your own.‬

Updates: I got a few crowdsourced entries and they are as exciting and as stylish as ever. Here we go:
