EXCLUSIVE-TB JOSHUA GIVE N12M TO SOUTH AFRICAN RETURNEES.

Founder and Senior pastor of Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, SCOAN, Temitope Balogun Joshua has donated N12m to the second batch of Nigerian returnees fleeing from xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

No fewer than 300 returnees arrived Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Wednesday with the assistance of a Nigerian carrier, Air Peace, with young children and many who had lost their means of livelihood during the recent attacks.

The money which was given was distributed among 162 people who visited the Church, with N100, 000 given to each adult and the remaining allotted according to the size of the families.

The spokesperson of SCOAN, Mr. Joseph told the returnees that T.B. Joshua is known for his philanthropy and that is what he did again.

“The man of God is fully aware of your presence even if he is not around and he has instructed that you should be well taken care of. He is also praying for you. This is what he’s known for.”

“You are the second set of people that came back and the first batch was also here last week and the man of God blesses them. So he feels what you are feeling right now and he shares your pains and that is why you are welcome here.”

“By the grace of God, the spirit of God will lead him to do what is best for you. Many of you have lost everything, you came back with nothing even though you properties, businesses are there.”

“The man of God said he cannot afford to close his eyes or turn deaf ears to your plights so with the support of Emmanuel TV Partners, the man of God has given everyone here today as returnees from South Africa the cash sum of N12 million.”

A warning to foreign Affair minister and people of south Africa-by FFK

Femi Fani Kayode

“I would appreciate them in helping us as well to address the belief our people have and the reality that there are many persons from Nigeria dealing in drugs in our country”
–– Dr. Grace Naledi Mandisa Pandor, South African Minister of International Relations.

Is this the sort of thing that ought to be said by the South African Government when we are still in mourning and when we have not even buried our compatriots that were cruelly slain, bludgeoned to death and cut to pieces in the streets of South Africa?

At a time when this irresponsible, insensitive, shameless, conflicted, self-hating, pitiful and mendacious creature that calls herself the Foreign Minister of South Africa should be apologising to the Nigerian people for the mindless savagery and barbarity of her blood-crazed compatriots, she is pointing accusing fingers at their victims and the objects of their collective hate and seeking to demonise them. What have we done to deserve this? First you kill us then you seek to justify it and criminalise us!

Does this she-devil of a Foreign Minister really believe that innocent Nigerian men, women and children should be butchered at will in the streets of South Africa by bloodthirsty and bestial mobs?

Worse still does she think it is right and proper that this is done with the full endorsement and support of both the South African Government and police? Is that the way forward? Is that the way to build bridges in Africa and enhance peace and stability on the continent? Can such behaviour be justified or defended under any circumstances? What would she do or think if the Nigerian Government and people decided to reciprocate and mete the same treatment out to South Africans that reside in Nigeria and South African companies that are situated here?

In any case how many of those that were butchered over the years were drug dealers? If it is true that as many Nigerians deal in drugs as she has suggested, why can’t the South African Government apprehend, arrest and prosecute them and send them to jail rather than demonise, misrepresent, target and kill innocent and defenceless Nigerians? This is a clear case of racial stereotyping and a squalid and shameful attempt to justify hate, racism, xenophobia, self-hate, black on black violence and mass murder. Permit me to educate the South African Foreign Minister and to set the record straight.

There are thousands of Nigerian professionals, academics, lecturers, intellectuals, businessmen, teachers, scientists, engineers and doctors in your country working hard, doing a great job and contributing massively to your development and economy.

The fact that your people hate Nigerians and enjoy killing us has nothing to do with drugs, human-trafficking or drug-trafficking. It is because your people are hateful, ignorant, xenophobic, lazy, racist and envious of ours.
And the few irresponsible Nigerians that go to South Africa and indulge in terrible and unforgivable crimes like drug and human-trafficking and gang-related violence do so only because your people have a terrible weakness, an undue fascination and an insatiable appetite for hard drugs, alcohol, prostitues, men and women of easy virtue and the dark, ugly and wild side of life.

It is therefore not surprising that South Africa has, for the better part of the last 25 years, been described as the “world’s capital for homicide” and the country with the “highest number of people that have been afflicted with HIV AIDS!”
Rather than work hard, like their Nigerians counterparts, South Africans prefer to go to sleazy and cheap nightclubs, to gamble on gaming machines and poker tables, to drink huge amounts of beer, to take massive amounts of hard drugs and to stay at home, watch television and sleep. They are not particularly good at anything except singing beautiful songs and killing their fellow Africans.

It is for this singular reason that their women love and respect Nigerian men and have nothing but contempt for their own. Generally-speaking Nigerian men are strong, productive, virile, focused, courageous, industrious, adventurous and hard-working with a touch of arrogance and they excel in all their ways. Sadly the average South African male does not possess these virtues or qualities. It does not stop there. For the better part of the last 50 years Nigeria has been the major military and economic power in Africa and we have used our wealth, power and influence wisely and expeditiously to the advantage of many countries on the continent.

For example, had it not been for us the minority white Boers would still be ruling over the black South Africans and apartheid would still have been firmly in place.
We nationalised British Petroleum and Barclays Bank because of them in the late 1970’s and thereby compelled the British to accept our demand of black majority rule in South Africa and Zimbabwe and to stop supporting apartheid and white minority governments.

We are far ahead of South Africa in terms of education and virtually every other sphere of human endeavour and we have opened up our country for them to come and invest in without any pre-conditions, obstacles or trade barriers.
Today Nigeria is by far the biggest market for their expertise, products, goods and services and if that market were to ever be closed to them or if their companies were nationalised it would affect their economy enormously. The truth is that they benefit far more from and make far more money from us today than we benefit and make money from them.

In a trade war they have far more to lose than we do because not that many Nigerian companies have invested heavily in and operate in South Africa whilst many South African companies have invested heavily in and operate in Nigeria. As a matter of fact some of those companies make more money from the Nigerian market and their Nigerian operations than they do in the whole of the rest of Africa put together.

That is what we have offered and given them and yet they have offered and given us next to nothing in return. All we get from them are insults, violence and heartache! Historically and in every other way they are very much our juniors. Our people were educated at Oxford, Cambridge and the very best universities in the world since 1860. South African blacks never went to a real university until the 1990’s after aparthied fell.
We have liberated and brought peace, justice and stability to many African countries and been a blessing to the African continent for many decades despite our present challenges.

Whether it be Angola, Mozambique, Congo, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Ethiopia, Eritea, Ghana, Namibia, Sierra Leonne, Liberia, Sao Tome and Principe, Sudan, Chad, Niger and so many others, we were there in full force with our money, our resources, our arms, our logistical support, our oil, our economic concessions, our aid and in some cases our troops.
We shed blood and our blood was shed for other African countries over the years yet all we get in return are insults.
If you say Nigerians are drug pushers and human traffickers then I will say that South Africans are losers, racists, drop-outs, failures and genocidal maniacs.

Worse still had the white Boers not built up South Africa it would still be a barren land and the black population would still be nothing but slaves that live in filthy and squalid little townships.
Despite all the razzmatazz and great public relations about being a happy and prosperous “rainbow nation” where everyone is so happy and is treated so well, the truth is that South Africa remains a country with a black body and a white head.
I say this because even though political control and leadership has been ceded to the blacks, 80% of the multi-national corporations, big business, industry, the private sector and the economy and 90% of the choicest land, the biggest farms and the best farmlands still remain in the hands of the white Boer minority.

Given this, is it any wonder that black South Africans are literally going mad and are deeply frustrated and filled with hatred and bitterness? They have nothing and, unlike in the days of Oliver Tambo, Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki (all great and inspiring men of strength, courage, wisdom, conviction and profound wisdom) other than a handful of new political leaders who are essentially corrupt, weak, fearful, divided, conflicted and uninspiring token niggers and Uncle Toms (with the possible exception of a bright, courageous and rising young star by the name of Julius Malema), their prospects of ever amounting to anything over the next 100 years is very dim.

The real power still resides in the hands of the minority white Boers and the prospects for a prosperous and bright future lies heavily in their favour at the expense of the majority blacks.
If only the South Africans knew and remembered their history and considered ours they would be praying for Nigeria and thanking us every day rather than insulting and killing us.

Without our support and the pressure we brought to bear, the great Nelson Mandela may never have been freed and the ANC and its armed wing (Umkhonto Wi SIzwe) would not have received the massive and robust funding and support that it did throughout the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s. Together with the Cubans and the Libyans, Nigeria did more for the liberation of South Africa and South African majority rule than any other nation in the world.
What the South Africans are doing to Nigerians today makes me regret the fact that we did so much for them in the past.
They have repaid our good with evil and consequently evil will never leave their doorstep. They have shed our blood for no just cause and the heavens will respond and avenge us. They have made us weep and shed tears for our compatriots and for this they shall pay a heavy price!

The South African Foreign Minister and those that share her racist and deplorable disposition and xenophobic views should consider these facts and the implications of her words and actions before she ventures to open her fat, ugly and very undiplomatic mouth to speak untruths and garbage about Nigeria and Nigerians again.

Failing to do so may provoke a series of cataclysmic events and unpredictable and harsh reprisals which would result in the final demystification and total humiliation of the “rainbow nation” and the painful and everlasting disgrace of its people.
Make no mistake about it, even a Nigeria in her weakened state and with all her challenges is still big and strong enough to bring South Africa to its knees.
And if the killing and mass murder of our people does not stop that is precisely what we shall do. A word is enough for the wise.

Permit me to conclude this contribution with the following.
Many years ago in the early to mid-1970’s, when apartheid was alive and well in South Africa and when I was a young student at Harrow, which undoubtedly remains the best private school in England, I broke the jaw of a blond, blue-eyed English-speaking white South African fellow student who said some very nasty things about black South Africans during a history class.
During a heated debate about racial segregation and the South African Mixed Race Act which made it a criminal offence for blacks and whites to get married or have sexual relations, he got up and said, before the entire class, that “allowing those dirty black dogs to touch our beautiful and pure white women is sacrilage. It is against the laws of God! It is like getting a monkey to mate with a human being!”

Finally he said “no sane white woman would ever want to have sex with a black African monkey and any of them that do should be sent to jail”. I reacted swiftly and without any hesitation. Without any warning or even words of anger, I left my desk, walked up to him and broke his jaw with one clean blow from my right fist. He never knew what hit him!
I remember hearing and enjoying the way his jaw popped open and cracked. It was a strange noise and as he hit the floor his legs started to shake uncontrollably after which he lost consciousness.
For one horrendous moment I thought I had killed him but thankfully eventually his eyes opened, he sat up and he was rushed to the hospital on a stretcher.

He hailed from one of the biggest and richest white families in South Africa who were (and still are) in the diamond mining business. I almost got expelled from Harrow for my “wild and unruly” behaviour until I gave my reasons for hitting him to the school authorities. They were shocked and equally appauled by what he had said, which they rightly regarded as a grave and reckless provocation, and they decided to let me off the hook.

I was reprimanded and warned and I remember that the Headmaster wrote a formal letter about the incident to my father who was livid with me for jeopordising my entire academic career simply because of a racial slight and slur.
Papa said “you didn’t have to hit him and almost kill the poor boy: you could have just attempted to educate him in a civilised manner and at the worst insult him back!”

Yet I had no regrets or remorse about my course of action or the choice that I made and to my eternal credit I never apologised for my action to the South African, the school authorities, my father or anyone else. The truth is that I was proud of what I did and I believed that defending the honor of my black South African colleagues was far more important than staying at Harrow. I was prepared to risk it all by physically assaulting the white boy and I did it with relish.

My gamble paid off and the South African boy, as sober as ever, never insulted or spoke ill of blacks again in my presence.
As a matter of fact we ended up becoming friends in the following years and I will never forget what he told me just before we left Harrow in 1977. I remember the words because I wrote them down at the time and have meditated on them for years.

He said “you don’t understand the Bantus” (meaning black South Africans).
He went on to say “the day they get power in South Africa is the day that South Africa will begin to die. Since the 17th century we Boers built up everything there and they contributed nothing. We fought the Zulus and later the British and we built and developed that land with our flesh, sweat and blood. Giving a country like South Africa to them is like giving a monkey a loaded gun. They will use it to kill everyone around them and eventually they will kill themselves. They are not like you Nigerians: they have no history or class.

They are unenlightened, ungrateful, primitive, uncouth and very backward and one day the rest of Africa will know them for what they are!”
Judging from the words of the South African Foreign Minister and the xenophobic and racist diposition of the South African President, Government and people, it appears that that day has finally come.

Undocumented foreign nationals to Appear in court on Monday

Large quantities of counterfeit clothing and footwear have been confiscated during an ongoing raid.

Large quantities of counterfeit clothing and footwear have been confiscated during an ongoing raid.

The Home Affairs Department says over 500 people, including hundreds of undocumented foreign nationals arrested during a police raid in the Johannesburg CBD, are expected to appear in court on Monday.

On Wednesday police swooped on shops belonging to foreign nationals and confiscated large quantities goods including clothing and sneakers as well as unlicensed firearms and ammunition.

Hillbrow raid 

The Police together with the Johannesburg Metro Police have also raided Hillbrow in a sting operation on Saturday. The raid comes after members of the community raised several complaints about escalating crime in the area.

The complaints range from drug trafficking, contravening by-laws and the presence of undocumented foreign nationals.

Johannesburg Metro Police spokesperson Wayne Minnaar says a number of arrests have been made.

“At least 17 will be processed for drinking in public and one for possession of counterfeit goods. We are not targeting anybody based on their nationality. The focus of the raid is anyone who is contravening the law. So if the person is an undocumented foreign national, unfortunately they will have to be taken. If you are in possession of unlicensed firearms or drugs, these too will have to be taken in and charges accordingly,” says Minnaar.

Migrant rights 

Meanwhile, the Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR) have called on police to conduct their raids in a procedural, fair and legal manner.

The head of the LHR’s Johannesburg Law Clinic, Jessica Lawrence, has warned police against putting all foreigners in a category of illegal migrants.

“What we are seeing currently is that many people have just been arrested on the basis of being foreign. So migrants within South Africa particularly asylum-seekers and refugees are incredibly vulnerable and often people flee their home countries due to persecution on the basis of political opinion, gender, sexual orientation as well as war, so people come to South Africa seeking protection from the South African state.”

Life is Good-why Nas is making his Hip-hop cash kings Debut at Age 44

17mt1jASfOtPmh8gDG9j_full_hero-Nas_2720x1275

 

n a late-summer Wednesday morning, legendary rapper Nas is lounging in a Scandinavian-chic conference room at the lower Manhattan headquarters of the venerable hip-hop media outlet Mass Appeal. Even before he first graced Mass Appeal’s cover in 2002, he was a mainstay in its coverage, one of the most influential hip-hop artists ever.

But he’s not here for another Mass Appeal story. These days, Nas, 44, is a co-owner of the company. It’s part of his sprawling venture capital portfolio that includes stakes in startups from Casper to Dropbox—investments made often through his fund, QueensBridge Venture Partners (named after the housing projects in New York City where he grew up). Pretty good for an artist who rather grudgingly achieved business success and always seemed more comfortable rapping about African history than launching clothing lines.

“I was music guy for years, and then all of a sudden it’s like I hit an age … I guess it was just the age, or just wisdom,” Nas explains in his signature baritone rasp. “Felt like now’s the time.”

Almost 25 years after the release of his first album, Illmatic, Nas lands on our Hip-Hop Cash Kings list of the top-earning rappers for the first time after raking $35 million last year. That’s thanks to 40-plus shows and a big Hennessey endorsement—and his cut from the sale of Ring, a smart doorbell maker, to Amazon. While Nas may have missed out on the sneaker and streetwear deals of the late 90s, he’s proved to be a later-in-life commercial force and a bit of an unlikely trailblazer with his startup investments.

Take his involvement in Mass Appeal, which occupies two floors of a SoHo WeWork building, an industrially stylish space complete with a pet snake shedding skin in a neon-lit aquarium (a gift from the rapper Young Thug). Mass Appeal was revived five years ago by Peter Bittenbender, cofounder of the creative studio Decon, and Sacha Jenkins, cofounder of Ego Trip magazine.

The latter spent much of his youth in Queens, where Nas grew up with blues playing father and a mother who worked for the Postal Service before releasing Illmatic, still considered by many the best rap album of all time. Jenkins recognized Nas’ talent early and kept in touch as Mass Appeal evolved.

“Sacha connected all the dots and called Nas, just like, ‘Do you want to help?’” Bittenbender recalls. “That totally wasn’t part of what he was doing at that point, but he had a history [with] the brand, so it made a lot of sense.”

Nas came on and invested a six-figure sum in a million-dollar round alongside Decon and early-stage firm White Owl Capital Partners. Mass Appeal resurfaced in 2013 with plans to become a quarterly print publication. That strategy has since given way to a multimedia approach.

Today, Mass Appeal’s editorial output exists mostly on platforms like YouTube, which is home to its popular video series. There’s “Rhythm Roulette,” where Mass Appeal challenges producers to make a beat from three records chosen randomly from a local record store while blindfolded, and “Open Space,” which features interviews with celebrity guests.

Mass Appeal has also expanded into other areas, launching its own creative agency and spinning out specials like the hip-hop documentaries Rapture and Fresh Dressed. Nas contributed to both, arranging an introduction to YouTube’s music chief Lyor Cohen—onetime head of Def Jam Records—who then brought on Mass Appeal to work on a Google campaign around hip-hop’s 44th anniversary featuring an interactive graphic orchestrated by the hip-hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy. Nas also helped Mass Appeal set up interviews with famous friends like Kanye West and Diddy for Fresh Dressed.

“Hip-hop was so embedded in the lives of so many people who make decisions,” Jenkins says. “Now [Nas is] a moving piece of social capital. That capital is tied into his art, and that art has opened all these doors, you know? Now people understand that the art itself is tied to culture, and culture is tied to commerce.”

Nas has followed a similar formula for his other investments. His inspiration struck around the time he met Andreesen Horowitz cofounder Ben Horowitz and bonded over a shared love of hip-hop and barbeque at a dinner arranged by fellow Mass Appeal investor Steve Stoute circa 2012 (“I’m a big foodie,” the rapper says). Two years later Nas founded QueensBridge Venture Partners with his manager, Anthony Saleh. They were joined by general partners Ajay Relan, Anand Murthy, Craig Vaughan and Dee Murthy (a fifth, Rashaun Williams, has since left the firm).

Since then, either through angel investing or through QueensBridge, Nas has ended up with stakes in dozens of startups, including many of those scouted by Andreessen Horowitz: Lyft, Genius and Coinbase, to name a few. He is, of course, not the only rapper with equity stakes. Plenty of the other Hip-Hop Cash Kings have invested in Silicon Valley darlings, from Jay-Z (Uber, stock-trading app Robinhood) to Diddy (Spotify), though Nas appears to be the most prolific.

Most recently, Nas helped launch Mass Appeal Records in 2014 and earlier this year released his latest album, Nasir, on the label. This came after he managed to convince Universal Music Group to let him out of the last record on his deal; the record giant also joined him as an investor in Mass Appeal.

“There wasn’t a time when [rappers] didn’t think about investing,” says Nas. “It just so happens that the world is opening up.”
