  • A museum for the Jackson Five is to be built in Nigeria, American developers have announced, as part of a $3.4bn (Β£2.4bn) luxury resort including concert halls, golf courses, casinos – and a memorial for Africa's former slave trade.
The Badagry Historical Resort, located near Badagry's former slave port, will include a multimillion pound memorial, slave history theme park, five-star hotel and Jackson Five museum. The project is supported in part by Marlon Jackson, one of Michael Jackson's brothers. "The #Jacksonfamily had been looking for a place to site their memorabilia collection," explained Gary Loster, chief executive of the Motherland Group, to the BBC. "We visited the site of the #slaveport in #Badagry and #Marlon turned to me and said: 'Let's put it here, this is right.'"
The development will cater to the country's growing tourism industry, particularly #AfricanAmerican tourists who wish to trace their #Nigerian roots. Visitors will be able to explore the site of the former #transatlantic slave trade, honour the hundreds of thousands who died in what were horrific human rights abuses, and then head off for a round of golf or a massage, before gawping at animatronic versions of the siblings who sang ABC and I Want You Back.
By promising to attract 1.4 million visitors in the first year, the Motherland Group has pledged to "enhance the quality of life for millions of people across Nigeria", according to promotional materials. They hope to create more than 150,000 jobs by the end of their fifth year. "It's such an emotional place, and I think we all felt that it was the right place to have the Jackson family memorial," Loster said.

  • People ask me all the time "Where are you from?"
.
... I answer "America"
.
...then the next question is "No. Where are you really from?"
.
....Hmm,well this is a harder question.  As a Black American I assume I have roots in West Africa, but because of slavery my ancestory is unknown. If slaves were able to keep their given names, then it would be easier to trace my history. Visiting W.Africa for the first time was special for me, since I believe my roots are from here.
πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬
Once in Nigeria I made sure to visit Badagry, a major slave port outside of Lagos. Unfortunately, since there is not a lot of tourism, there is little money to reserve the sites and create informative museums/memorials.  Nonetheless, I eagerly drove 3 hours to reach  Badagry to go on a slave tour. It was an eye opening experience that I felt connected to. .
πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬
First stop was the barracks museum, home to Sereki William Abass, a former slave who gained freedom and became a slave merchant for his owner. He facilitated bringing slaves from Badagry to Brazil.  The museum showcased the tiny rooms where slaves were stored for months. Two interesting things  to point  out: 1)Sereki Abass seemed to be celebrated  here, with a huge gravestone in the middle of the museum. I was confused why a man that profited of slavery would be honored. 2)Abass' descendents (he had 144 kids!!) live on the site. It was unique to visit a historical place with dark history, and have families housed there.
πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬
The next two stops were one room museums. I learned the plethora of chains used - i.e one chain that was pierced through lips to keep slaves mouths shut. I picked up one of the chains and it was way heavier than expected. The guide asked if I wanted to put the chain around my neck, but I immediately said no, because it seemed inappropriate.
πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬
The last stop was taking a boat and walking down the "Path of No Return", which is where slaves would march to board the ship to go across the Atlantic. Walking down this path they would have no idea where they would end up...
πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬
Have you been on any slave tours where history was well maintained?

  • If you ve ever been to the Jakande art and craft market and you’ve never purchased one thing?⁣
Raise your handπŸ™Œβ£
I don’t think there’s anyone in this Lagos that hasnt, if not from your first visit, I’m sure you’re having plans to go back next time to purchase that which you priced last.⁣
⁣
Since I bought this bag, it has been serving its purpose. Things are a bit expensive at the market but trust me you don’t want to go having your two eyes opened, you’ll go bankrupt, so many beautiful arts everywhere.⁣
⁣
On this day I struggled with the temptation of buying almost everything to having to narrow it down to 2.⁣
⁣
I love this print bag but too selective and not the everyday item.⁣
⁣
Do you get souvenirs on most of your trips /outing too?.

  • β€’Suntan Beach⁣
Location: Badagry⁣
Entrance Fee: ⁣
Adult.  N500⁣
Children.  N200 ⁣
 Tent fee:  N1000⁣
Usage of digital camera  N5000⁣
(but come along with your Agbero attitude  if you have one)⁣
⁣
⁣
If  you knew me when I was growing up, you’d have thought the suntan beach was my grandfather’s property handed over to my Father, and willed over to us the children because it was literally our playground.⁣
We found it easy to race to badagry  beach than Kuramo beach back then⁣
⁣
Badagry beach is less crowded⁣
Beautiful in its own way ⁣
Less traffic on that route.⁣
Very cheap entrance free.⁣
Less touts interference⁣
And they are no much sellers on the beach dragging you to come under their tents.⁣
⁣
Once you pay for the tent which is a thousand naira, They just come to market to you.⁣
⁣
Mark the face of the person you pay to , either for tents or for other digital equipment.⁣
The only option is to hold his knicker , collect his phone because these touts come in batches and they expect you to keep paying them claiming that you paid the wrong person at first.⁣
⁣
⁣
Not so much has changed since I last visited in 2014,apart from some little constructions.⁣
The beach was quite dirty than what I used to know it to be but overall, badagry beach won’t stress you.⁣
⁣
Lagos is blessed with beautiful beaches all over, na just maintenance remain.⁣
⁣
⁣
Thank God it’s friyaaayyyyyy!!!!⁣
Are we turning up this weekend or turning down???⁣
⁣
I’m turning is still Sunday,

Do you know how many times I goggle search some words in a day?! Like every minute. For real! No jokes.⁣
⁣
For example: I was going to post my fine ass looking Asian  cool dude coconut with the shades today and before I post it here  just to beautify my feed, I also thought it should be able to serve a purpose apart from it just been props.⁣
⁣
In the cause of doing so I learnt that ⁣
-	1	Supports immune system health: it is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasite⁣
	2	Provides a natural source of quick energy and enhances physical and athletic performances⁣
	3	Improves digestion and absorption of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals⁣
	4	Improves insulin secretion and symptoms associated with diabetes⁣
	5	Helps protect the body from cancers due to insulin reduction, removal of free radicals that cause premature aging and degenerative disease⁣
	6	Reduces risk of heart health and improves good cholesterol (HDL)⁣ 7	Restores and supports thyroid function⁣
	8	Helps protect against kidney disease and bladder infection⁣
	9	Promotes weight loss⁣
	10	Helps keep hair and skin healthy and youthful looking, prevents wrinkles, sagging skin, age spots, and provides sun protection⁣
⁣
(Copy and paste gang πŸƒβ€β™€)⁣
⁣
Now this left me asking why I was told was Aunty β€œeje agbon siko”⁣
( Eat coconut for your cough)⁣
⁣
I know this is a savage response from our elders when you cough because the general belief is that too much coconut gives you cough, why didn’t they add all of its other benefits.⁣
I’m Pained πŸ˜”.⁣
⁣
These elders owe me a lot.⁣

What was your last search on google?

  • PRIZE OF A SLAVE 
Chapter  I 
Nigerian Rulers sold our fathers out ....... At the initial stage of the trade parties of Europeans captured Nigerians in raids on communities in the coastal areas. But this soon gave way to buying slaves from Nigerian rulers and traders. The vast majority of slaves taken out of Nigeria were sold by Nigerian rulers, traders and a military aristocracy who all grew wealthy from the business. Most slaves were acquired through wars or by kidnapping. " Olaudah Equiano, an ex-slave, described in his memoirs published in 1789 how African rulers carried out raids to capture slaves. "When a trader wants slaves, he applies to a chief for them, and tempts him with his wares. It is not extraordinary, if on this occasion he yields to the temptation with as little firmness, and accepts the price of his fellow creature's liberty with as little reluctance, as the enlightened merchant. Accordingly, he falls upon his neighbours, and a desperate battle ensues...if he prevails, and takes prisoners, he gratifies his avarice by selling them." And according to historical preference, a slave was sold for a bottle of gin, umbrella, mirror, clothes, shoes .....
With deep research, Nigerian rulers sold slaves to get wealth, fame, power and to gather wives....
Europeans ask for permission, even we were price tag....
