Nigeria, the "Giant of Africa" is a country with plentiful resources and a population of over 170 million people. Over the past few years, the country has witnessed a rise in poverty rates and a severe economic decline. Furthermore, the past few years have witnessed the rise of a vicious terrorist group known as “Boko Haram” that has killed at least 1,600 Nigerian civilians since 2009.
Brandon Parsons and Sana Amin will be discussing the rise of Boko Haram and the decline of the security and economic conditions in Nigeria, linking this to the struggle over the country’s oil and natural resources. We will turn to a special guest, Onimisi Wordsmith, who is a poet, spoken word artist and social innovator from Abuja in northern Nigeria, to weigh in on the topic and document his experiences pertaining to the current events unfolding in Nigeria.

My guest this Sunday, Nov. 3 is author Nike Campbell-Fatoki. We will be 'chatting' about her new book, Thread of Gold Beads.
About the author:
Nike Campbell-Fatoki was born in Lvov, Ukraine to Nigerian parents. She spent her formative years in Lagos, Nigeria, listening to stories and folktales told by her maternal Grandparents. Her fondest memories were the weekends her mother took her and her siblings to Kings Way, on Lagos Island, returning back with bags of story books.
About the book:
Amelia, daughter of the last independent King of Danhomè, King Gbèhanzin, is the apple of her father’s eye, loved beyond measure by her mother, and overprotected by her siblings. She searches for her place within the palace amidst conspirators and traitors to the Kingdom. Just when Amelia begins to feel at home in her role as a Princess, a well-kept secret shatters the perfect life she knows. Someone else within the palace also knows and does everything to bring the secret to light. A struggle between good and evil ensues causing Amelia to leave all that she knows and loves. She must flee Danhomè with her brother, to south-western Nigeria. In a faraway land, she finds the love of a new family and God. The well-kept secret thought to have been dead and buried, resurrects with the flash of a thread of gold beads. Amelia must fight for her life and what is left of her soul.
