    By Morak Babajide-Alabi The month of December is traditionally associated with Christmas celebrations and the crossover to a new year.

    For Alabama Voters, It Was A Choice of Good or Bad

    By Morak Babajide-Alabi The world heaved a sigh of relief when the results of the United States of America, Alabama Senatorial elections, came in last week Tuesday. We had watched with bated breath as the weeks thinned down to days and finally to the election day. It was an election to test the moral value…

    For May, The Brexit Deal Was A Personal Achievement

    By Morak Babajide-Alabi On Friday, the BREXIT negotiations took a step forward as the EU and the United Kingdom officials made a breakthrough pact in Brussels, the capital city of Belgium and headquarters of the European Union.

    Libya, A Country With No Borders, But Slave Markets

    By Morak Babajide-Alabi The plight of immigrants in the African country of Libya has of late been of concern as the world arose from the slumber it has been for ages. We have just accepted that African migrants, desperately seeking to cross over to Europe, are not only dying in the Mediterranean Sea, but a…

    Freedom From Mugabe, Power To “The Crocodile” 

    By Morak Babajide-Alabi Events in Zimbabwe took a dramatic turn last week when the lifetime 93-year old President Robert Mugabe finally accepted the harsh reality that his political career was over. It was not supposed to be a surprise at all, but the grand old man played a deft hand and extended his stay in…

    Zimbabwe Shall Be Free

    By Morak Babajide-Alabi My heart goes out, at this time in history, to the people of Zimbabwe who are as confused, as a nation, as one can get it. As the world looks on in anticipation of a peaceful resolution of the current impasse in the country, the citizens go on their knees praying for a…

    In UK, Politicians Lust In The Paradise

    By Morak Babajide-Alabi It’s been a roller coaster of events in the United Kingdom in the past two or three weeks. We have been regaled with “drama episodes”, from the ridiculous to the shocking and life-changing happenings that one could not have imagined. It is been walking and reading from “Paradise Papers” to Hollywood sex…

    Who Will Save This Giant?

    By Morak Babajide-Alabi He is the Giant. And not called a giant for fun sake. The potentials of this big frame were discovered early in his life. He walked heads and shoulders far above others born around the same time as he was. He appeared brave everywhere he showed up and in a short while,…

    Weinstein Is The Rabbit Caught in The Headlight

    By Morak Babajide-Alabi When the story about Harvey Weinstein broke recently, it was like one that has been told over and over again in the past. It sounded too repetitive and got some people yawning and saying to themselves – “this is familiar”. They are right because we hear these stories in the grapevine on…



    How & why did Daniel, Akala et al “steal” so much?

    In the news recently was the arrest of three former governors in Nigeria, while the fourth gave himself up after a dramatic disappearance. They have been accused of embezzling over $615 million (£400 million)  of their states’ money. This is not only shocking but obscene. In a country where citizens are ravaged with poverty, unemployment,…


    How do you sell your “wares”?

    In between watching XFactor and Strictly Come Dancing, my mind keeps wondering how easy for a nobody to become somebody. In this age now, there are many platforms for any talented individual to showcase his or her “wares”. Among the greatest platforms, apart from XFactor, American Idol and all the others, is YouTube. YouTube has…


    Inspiring thoughts

    Dr Myles Munroe once said the wealthiest places in the world are not the gold mines of South America or the oil fields of Iraq or Iran. They’re not the diamond mines of South Africa or the banks of the world. The wealthiest place on the planet is just down the road. It is the…


    Bizarre, but true!

    In a bizarre development, as mourners all over the world were saying one or two things about Steve Jobs, men (women) with other intentions saw the death as a means of making quick bucks. By doing what? By breaking into an Apple Store. Then you wonder what could have gone through the minds of the…


    Adieu Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011

    No time can be late to honour the late genius Steve Jobs. So i have therefore decided to put this down in his memory. In actual fact this blog, BABAJIDE, was inspired on the announcement of his death. I cannot explain how this came about, but immediately I heard the news of  his death I…


    Welcome to my world

    I seize this opportunity to welcome you to my blog where I shall be musing randomly on many topics ranging from education to religion, socials to politics and any other thing  that catches my fancy. Just like the tag line read, it is my blog. The implication of this is that the thoughts are purely…
