I was privileged to have a ride with some Nigerians in Lagos yesterday and the richest man in the mix talked so highly of a certain friend of his, financially and career-wise. The shocker came when he exclaimed that the man (his friend) was however neither a family man nor a great dad. This, he pointed was his opinion being that even though his friend was successfully making money he had his children growing up without him in an American state with his wife taking care of them. This for him was failure as a father! This got me thinking being that this has become a practice even with newly weds and especially the middle and upper class in Nigeria. They sacrifice family bonding to this career and money-making venture we encourage on this blog.

This Family Life conference will stream live online on Thursday 5.30pm and Sunday 7.30am (Nigerian time) on www.hotrrefuge.tv. If you are in Ab…
When I first heard, that Jumia hosted over100 Tech Bloggers on May 14th, I was wishing I could switch my niche momentarily just to benefit from the bumper knowledge. I quickly consoled with myself with thoughts that I will be part of the West African Bloggers Conference which was the next day, May 15th and since Jumia was supposed to feature, I was good to go.
And yes, I got the whole scoop that the Tech bloggers got and to know that it will make a lot of sense to save and plan towards this phone fair is overwhelming.
Dr Jonathan Doerr, MD Jumia was there to tell us all about it. The Jumia Mobile Week Megathon is like a "BlackFridayForAWeek" for phone, and yes smart phones.
