    From Black America to Nigeria to Jamaica to the rest of the black world, we are putting too much emphasis on entertainment and not on things that really matter. We will always be the underdog if we continue to collectively value entertainment more than Science and Technology, Finance, Business etc. The western press especially in the US get this and they continue to consciously feed our young ones with this mentality by turning entertainers like Beyonce, Kanye etc into some sort of demi-god. There are very successful black people on Wall street, silicon valley but they never throw those ones up. This does not take anything away from the sweetheart that Ms Naomi is and from the kindness she showed these kids. It is just a wake-up call for us all to redirect our passion and focus into what really matter,

      you can have both. The Beatles and Steve Jobs are both equally heralded by white people. you don’t have to belittle the impact of arts and entertainment in order to advance interest in the sciences

      @ijebujesha, For starters, both are NOT mutually-exclusive, and many advances in sciences and technology has been driven by entertainment.

      Nonetheless, everybody cannot be a scientist. Sadly, it’s this same tired old “doctor”, “lawyer” and “engineer” mentality that has bequeathed us with tons of mediocre bail-and charge lawyers and so-called “engineers” who cannot build anything or fix a simple car engine, rather than more of the Hubert Ogundes, Wole Soyinkas, Chinua Achebes or Ben Enwonwus. This same stuffy mentality has also been extended to sports, and is pretty much the reason that our stadiums are empty but yet we contrive to spend millions of dollars following the EPL and La Liga and will tell you who Messi’s grandfather’s babymama is but not who is the captain of any Nigerian team.

      The creative industry is exactly that – an industry! If nurtured well, it lends creates job, wealth, livelihoods and lends to national development. I bet that Nollywood has created more jobs than engineering in Nigeria, while folks like Wizkid, Davido, Tekno, Olamide, etc., has generated much more Goodwill for Nigeria around Africa and the world than all the money that Nigeria’s governmental efforts put together, while promoting and/or solidifying cultural identification among the Nigerian diaspora (even among kids who have never been to Nigeria). Finally, creativity drives INVENTION, because it promotes a culture of non-conformity and thinking-outside-the-box.

      If you actually googled ANYTHING about these kids, you would know that their dancing is literally what feeds, clothes, houses AND educates them. These were children whose parents could not afford to send them to school, and Seyi their 26 year old mentor/ director makes sure they focus on their studies before they can dance.. She chose this as her life’s work, taking children off the street and sending them to school. Did you know that some of this kids couldn’t speak English a year ago? Sorry for this diatribe, but your comments about happy young children finding joy after living in lack for so long are upsetting, and a sweeping judgement. If the arts didn’t matter, then this get blog you’re commenting on wouldn’t exist.
