The Dilemma of Moral Instructions: Exploring the Fela Falana Construct

Image
Thoughts on Falz's Moral Instruction Album by 'Joba Ojelabi

If a need to rank art forms ever arose, it might not be entirely foolish to bet that music would clinch the top ranks. With the diverse genres and musical subclassifications that exist, it remains perhaps the most relatable form of art. While a person might find it difficult to see the beauty of a painting, or appreciate the imperfections of a sculpture, it’s safer to assume that there’s a song for every man or at least every mood. Whether it’s the solemn sound of Yaani or the aggressive vibrations that characterizes the metallic genre of music, there’s someone that vibrates on the same frequency. This is why music, as a form of art, has over time been used when there’s a need to communicate with the public.

By hiding their message in the lyrics of a song, brands have been able to sell their products, politicians have able to get their names on the lips of the masses, and activists have been able to spread their ideal…

ASUU Clears The Air On Receiving Money From Federal Government

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), on Friday, has clarified that it does not directly spend or receive money from the federal government. It said the clarification became necessary following insinuations that it does.
In a statement made available , the Ibadan Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Ade Adejumo said that reports by some media houses that it received N163 billion was a “misinformation”.
Dr Adejumo, in the statement entitled: “Re: N163 billion released to ASUU: Putting the records straight”, disclosed that the government knows that it is the council and the university administration that receive and spend all the money coming into the university and not the union.
He said, “Once again, the attention of our union has been drawn to another piece of misinformation which gives the impression that ASUU collects money from government.

Lecture Free Week: The Comic Heartbreak

by Kingsley Ndimele 
Bosun, my room mate was preparing lunch yesterday, when suddenly he was notified that timetable for his exams have been officially released by  his department.

Unlike the usual tense academic atmosphere during the lecture free week, many students are yet to wake up to the reality of the fact that semester exams start next week.

Everyday, several departments keep releasing examination timetable, while some departments had released theirs before the Christmas and New Year break.

Like seriously! Exams start next week! So, VC refused to add extra two weeks. I've read nada! This is gradually becoming a reality. I pray I don't jones this semester.

Few hours after the threat letter released by ASUU OAU, Federal Government made head way in their agreement with ASUU National Body. Predictably, the ASUU strike will be called off officially any time soon.

As I was writing my last test scheduled for this week, I saw exams staring strongly at my face. The gradual reali…
