I recently had the chance to attend the Northside Festival in Brooklyn. There were talks about technology and content during the day and events at night. I attended a block party in Mccarren Park where hip-hop legend Grand Master Flash was the headlining act. Although I was super excited to witness one of the founding members of hip-hop in action, I was also very interested to check out his opening acts: Radamiz, I.O.D and Kweku Collins.

As the first outfit from Ivory Coast's Dent de Man came out, I felt goosebumps, wowed by its beauty and style. Wax fabrics have always been a part of my life, as long as I can remember I wore them wrapped around my waist in the summer, at the beach, or had jackets made on a 125th Street in Harlem by the Senegalese tailors there.

Ethnicity is a tool rather than the cause for the reappearance of discord in Burundi. As means to rationalize his grab for perpetual office, President Pierre Nkurunziza has reached into the bag of tricks of stoking fear of "the other." That is a zombie from the past that can rise from the dead.

Easter is the second top-selling confectionery holiday behind only Halloween. That's a lot of chocolate going into Easter baskets across the country, and it's a huge opportunity for consumers to make a difference in farmers' lives.

Nigerian voters have also sent a strong message to ordinary Africans throughout the continent. If Nigerians can vote for a candidate of their choice, even unseating an incumbent president, voters in other African countries can do the same.
