    Nigerians and their slavery mentality. Typical of same old crowd to show their faces with any foreigner. Please tell Charles and his family to return the Bini Royal artifacts stolen in 1897.

    No offense but colonial mentality will always be the bane of Nigeria. Why is it always entertainers, and fashion folks they want to see in Africa. We are of no revelance to the world in technology, science, math, even the algorithms behind the “slay queens “ favorite SMS, instagram and Facebook. We are just consumers of pencils, erasers, chocolates made with our cocoa etc. Perfect for photo op and pretending these fashion gatherings have any bearing on National development anytime those whose countries are developed come visiting. No offense but I think the black race in Africa have minimal depth. It’s about using other countries technology and not moving forward even to their late 19th century level.

    BN no offense, your job is to carry the pictures. It’s not your fault we can’t make pencils and Ajaokuta steel has been going on for 40 years. Carry the stories but look for STEM champions, it’s the only way countries develop!

    How sad that the image of Nigeria is only portrayed to the world though the the same foreign accented set of people;how sad that the entertainment industry is mostly represented by English language contributors;how sad that our fashion,arts and culture is enveloped by foreign influences;how sad that veterans indigenous contributor to cultural heritage are always missing in action……….where are tje likes of ADERUKOPO,SADIQ DABA,PAPA AJASCO,BABA SUWE,CHIWENTULU AGU;PASUMA;ODULADE ADEKOLA;IYA RAINBOW……well maybe they are busy with work or busy trying to stay alive or simply not presentable to royals.
    Eniyan dudu iwa dudu!!!!!
    Before you know it they will blame it on the government or the white man. It is well..
    I bet the conversation between the queen and her son is like this:
    Queen: Abeg go check those people in Africa make we no come forfeit our strong hold to China o.
    Charles on return: mama no shaking,their eyes never open. No shaking ???

    I recently attended an IATA conference and when the discussion turned to regional developments, I was just so ashamed of Africa. China, India and LatAM are the hot kids on the block. Africa is so way behind and totally oblivious of it, it’s heart breaking.

    So much NEGATIVITY on one thread…Haba! ?

    Is Prince Charles an expert “technology, science, maths, even algorithms”? Then, why on earth would anyone expect that these would be the subjects of attention? Especially, as Prince Charles (and the royal institution that he represents) is essentially a cultural ambassador. A few weeks ago, both PM Theresa May and Chancellor Merkel were in Nigeria, and there were absolutely no Nollywood types in sight (but rather they met with the appropriate foreign affairs, defense, business, trade, etc. types). Most recently, the Governor-General of Canada was in Nigeria and visited the space agency, among others. So why the angst and seemingly petty bitterness? Mark Zukerberg visits and folks have an issue with it, and Prince Charles visits and folks also have an issue with it. Haba!!

    BTW, arts and the creative industry is NOT an irrelevancy. Apart from creating thousands of direct and ancillary jobs (including jobs for the STEM types in structural, audio and electrical engineering, among others), there’s a reason that your iPhone and Apple computers are the art pieces they essentially are. Frankly, Nigerians sometimes need to loosen their collars, remove that stick firmly wedged up their behinds and simply enjoy life! SMH

    PS: And one suspects that the reason that a younger crowd is predominantly represented here is that the organizers are trying to emphasize Nigeria’s FUTURE (wrt the creative industries) instead of it’s past. Life is not uni-dimensional and nonetheless we already have enough geriatrics “representing” Nigeria in government, business and the public services.
