I’m looking forward to visiting Jamaica – Terry G

Published

Musician and producer, Gabriel Amanyi, aka Terry G, about the fond memories of his trip to Egypt

Where did you visit recently and why did you travel there?

That would be Egypt. I travelled there early this year for an event.

How long did you spend in Egypt?

We spent about three days at a hotel and it was an awesome experience. Me and my team really enjoyed ourselves.

What did you enjoy most about the country?

We had massive fun in Egypt. After we touched down, we went straight to the hotel to rest, then we went for a tour round the city. In the evening, we went for the event we came for. I loved the fact that it is an historic city. We got to see the pyramids, and the tomb of Pharaoh, but we didn’t enter. I was very scared to go in because it was closed and that was where they buried him. I guess I remembered what he did to the Israelites.

What would a first time visitor to Egypt find interesting about the country?

It is their culture and the way they dress. They have a way of making anyone adapt to their environment, or else you would look odd. I dressed like them while I was there, though it wasn’t necessary. I just did it for the fun. It is just like going to Dubai and you get to wear the jalamia and scarf.

Which of their local dish did you try?

None. I was sceptical about their food, coupled with the fact that the food didn’t look delicious to me.

What part of their culture did you find interesting?

They share some similarities with Nigeria. They love God and are quite responsible and respectful. They also treat foreigners well.

What did you see in Egypt and would love to replicate in Nigeria?

Personally, I think Nigeria, as a country, is forgetting its culture. We have allowed ourselves to be so influenced by the western culture. I think it is time for us to embrace our culture and go back to where we started.

Were the people friendly towards you?

Yes, they were. And I think they also have good relationship with Nigeria; that was why we were granted access to their country.

How did you spend your Christmas?

Although, I would have loved to enjoy the Christmas holiday with my family, I had to perform at a carnival in my home state, Benue, on December 25. The carnival holds every year so that is how I spent my Christmas.

What country would you like to visit next?

The country I would love to visit next is Jamaica because I really love the country.

What is the best travel advice you can give?

Firstly, as a stranger in any country, you should follow their rules because every country has its rules. You should keep your identity to yourself, except it is necessary to do otherwise.

The silence from churches and general overseers regarding #EndSARS is so loud – Daddy Freeze

Daddy Freeze

Nigerian broadcast journalist, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, has offered his bits of wisdom on what the best kind of investment is.

The popular radio host and convener of the ‘Free The Sheeple’ movement is of the view that the best kind of investment is assisting the underprivileged within the society.

In his words:

“The best investment in life is not buying property or starting a business. Don’t let motivational speaker fvck with your mind… The best investment is lifting the poor out of poverty..

Your houses and businesses could be destroyed in seconds if you don’t invest in uplifting the youths around you from poverty!
