    Of course she had to be Nigerian! We’re just that good! If only our leaders will allow youths to be developed the way we ought to be our country would’ve been great!

    When I saw the news in New York Times, I rushed to major African-American publications to read more about this fine young lady. There was not a peep. I forgot there was Oscar night before. Its a good thing Imelme broke the barrier where her talent and brilliance will last the test of time. As a Kenyan and an African, we are proud of you Imelme. You remind us of one of our own who went on to achieve great things in life by walking through the same path..
