    Yeah. Where is d’banj? Aint that something – what technology can do? Open our eyes. Where are the searches for politicians, economic growth and jobs? Seems like our lives are focused on pop culture. Interesting. Perhaps politics is hyped and Nigerians with access to social media dont really give a hoot. Begs the question, who exactly has access to the internet? Is it possible that there is an income differential in access or knowledge about google searches? Sigh. I am disappointed cos I want us to embrace more

      You stole my comment! You my brother are a thinking man. To paraphrase the bible………. by their search you will know them.

      The recipes are perhaps an indication of job searches. A lot of people are going into the baking and small chops business these days and majority of them are self taught, including myself (although I am not resident in Nigeria so my searches didn’t contribute).

    I guess you and I both are the dullest in class. It’s in the Urban Dictionary as “referring to yourself in the third person”. Doro just googled that before replying to you.
