Never Too Late for Self Discovery

By Adesina Ayomide Emmanuel

Have you ever sat down and this question keeps reverberating in your mind, “who am I?" You go out each day and you see people be the best of themselves, building a career in certain fields, putting faith to the test by stretching their capabilities, being confident in their own skin and you wonder who you are called to be. Of course, this happens to everyone. Is there also a better time to discover yourself than now?  When we meet people for the first time, we assess them, scrutinize their clothes, actions, and words, and go on to interact with them based on assumptions we have made. It is pertinent to know who you are before all else.

Turning Pandemic and its Effects into Advantages as a Learner

By Jodekss Gloatkenf 
The usual routines as we were used to them have taken a new shape today worldwide check. These days, almost all sectors of life have been paralyzed due to the outbreak and the rapid spread of Coronavirus, which is abbreviated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as Covid-19. The viral disease began in the Wuhan of China. A city that could be compared to the Lagos of Nigeria due to its population and diverse forms of commercial activities that go on therein on a daily basis. The deadly disease had been able to spread outside the shores of China all world continents, and it had been claiming thousands of life with millions infected and a few thousand cured of different treatments. Ever since the disease became a pandemic, different sectors around the world have been put on hold, and one of them is the education sector. Learners at different levels have been forced to be on compulsory holidays for months with no hope of resuming soon. Institutions with better sophi…

OAU Eportal App

By Derrick Blaze and Emmanuel Dominic OAU Eportal is everything to an OAU student. How? Well, it is the first and most dominant proof that you are a student; it is where you do everything as a student. You check your results with the Eportal, pay your school fees, and register your courses. Every detail about your studentship is online, so, it is best if you never forget your password. However, some times, especially when you need it the most, accessing the Eportal can be frustrating.   So, on the 12th of March, 2020, an Eportal app developed by an alumnus of the prestigious university was uploaded on the Google Play Store. The developer stated his inspiration for the app. “Most students do not have the school’s emergency numbers in the cases of unforeseen circumstances. Due to the witness of the loss of two students which was traced to the delay in contacting respective emergency units”  His aim is to also bridge the gap between students and OAU emergency centres/units.Since its upload o…

RISING STARS: Young Musicians in Nigerian Universities

By Olajiga Bolu
Many people believe that singing, rapping, making beats, or generally creating music is an easy task that can be performed by anyone. I beg to differ! I recently stumbled upon a music production software and decided to give it a try. After a month and a half of toiling unsuccessfully, I now thoroughly respect people like DJ Khaled, Jay-Z, and even Young John (the wicked producer) for dishing out masterpieces time and time again. It is not easy to create a sound that’ll tantalize the eardrums of a large audience. This is why I strongly respect the young Nigerian undergraduates who have decided to jump into the music scene. It might just be me, but every day I wake up I feel like there are ten new Nigerian musicians to listen to. And a large chunk of these upcoming artists are still university students. With the steady growth in the number of students looking for careers in music, it begs to ask the question of “why music?” for which I have compiled three possible reasons: …
