Join Us at Africa's Biggest Documentary Film Festival from March 16
The 2017 edition of the iREPRESENT International Documentary Film Festival is set to hold between March 16 and 19, 2017 at Freedom Park. This year’s edition is themed “Archiving Africa”.
According to the organisers, iREP Film festival 2017 will rigorously explore the opportunities open to Africa to bring its historic past into an archival system that is accessible on demand, and most importantly, how we can begin to use these materials to define a path for the future through storytelling.
“Africa has always been faced with a major challenge of connecting the dots in its historical past. A large part of what constitutes the verifiable history of Africa’s past today is sourced from the west.
“The facts of our historical journey are told to us by western imperialists and we simply regurgitate what is made available to us. In an age when even technology is looking ‘forward’ into the past to understand what is most valuable to our humanity, many African societies are shrouded in a blanket of collective amnesia.”

Senator Buruji Kashamu Petitions the United States Supreme Court
To Uphold Law Against International Kidnappings By U.S. Agents
February 8, 2017 (Chicago, IL) -- In response to the ruling of a federal court of appeals, which made factual findings and addressed the merits of a case despite having no factual record before it, lawyers for Buruji Kashamu, a duly elected federal Senator and businessman from Nigeria, today filed a petition for a writ of certiorari to review and reverse the ruling.
Attorneys Robert Cohen and Matthew Piers filed the lawsuit federal court in Chicago seeking a court order that would end and prevent attempts by agents of the United States government to unlawfully kidnap Senator Kashamu in Nigeria and forcibly bring him to the United States to face charges that were brought against him in 1998. Since the original charges were filed, two courts in Great Britain have determined that the evidence presented by the U.S. was insufficient to warrant his extradition and that the charges were the product of a case of mistaken identity.

Our Unforgettable Moments of 2016: Nunnsi and Celina at the Elegushi Beach in Lekki
This is one of our unforgettable moments of 2016.
Our time out at the popular Elegushi beach in Lekki during the making of my "Lagos in Motion" tourist documentary film in 2016.
Two young Nollywood actresses, Nunnsi Ojong and Celina Ideh enjoyed every moment.
Celina was scared of falling off one of the horses and screaming "Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!" Then she was twerking later after overcoming her fear. They had a bottle of wine before the sunset.

You contributed to our success in spite of the challenges of economic recession.
I produced my first film, "Lagos in Motion: Sights and Sounds of Africa's Largest Megacity" and also published the photo album of the documentary film released for worldwide distribution by Amazon.
Thanks to all the members of the cast and crew.
I launched our Screen Naija YouTube channel where you can see all the clips of the locations.
Unknown to the public, during the production of the "Lagos in Motion" documentary film, l was challenged by the kidnap of a Nigerian secondary school girl who was lured from Benin in Edo State and taken across the Sahara desert to the Republic of Niger and finally to Libya where she was in the custody of sex traffickers waiting to be sold as a sex slave or taken across the Miditterean Sea to Europe. I was able to secure her release after 90 days. And she returned by air to Nigeria and rejoined her family in Benin city.
Thanks to all those at the UN, UNICEF and IOM who gave me their morale boosting support.
Then on August 31, I was among those who were invited to meet with Mark Zuckerberg, Cofounder and CEO of Facebook at the Afrinolly Space during his first trip to sub Saharan Africa; with special thanks to Mr. Chike Maduegbuna and Mrs. Jane Maduegbuna of Afrinolly.

Zahra's Father In-law, Muhammed Indimi is in big financial Crisis
Alhaji Mohammed Indimi who owns Oriental Energy Resources is in big financial mess because he has to pay up debts running into 500million dollars. Indimi can’t pay up because the price of crude oil had plummeted and the billionaire is confused.
The arrangee marriage is more of a smart way to save his business empire when President Muhammadu Buhari decides to bring the anti- corruption hammer on illegal oil blocks and other financial crimes in the oil industry.
For those who do not know, Oriental Energy Resources Limited was established in 1990 by Muhammed Indimi and was awarded an Oil Prospecting License (OPL) 224 by the regime of former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd).
