nichowen You ever met somebody that's on 10Million 24 hours day?

The amount of things and experiences this guy has gotten into is absolutely ridiculous . When I was younger I was like yo, "dis n$gga crazy," but as I get older I understand that you need people like him to keep life interesting.

Happy birthday to my pops the ol yute Lance Owen 😎🏿

nichowen #MakingTheVideo- #NGOMBELE

What I wanted to do with this music video is show the traditional dance of the #BaKongo people from the old Kingdom of #Kongo executed by today's new generation.

The Kongo Kingdom existed from 1390 to 1914 and consisted of #Angola, the #RepublicOfCongo, and the #DemocraticRepublicOfCongo.

The idea of a strong and independent African state, after a brief and peaceful meeting with a handful of European explorers, converting to their religion, adopting their titles, names and some of their practices, allowing them a place and a role in their system, voluntarily acceding to their demands for slaves, taking on a more aggressive foreign policy to acquire these captives, and ultimately being attacked and taken over by them, presents a superficial and tragic picture of events.

The truth is more complex, but no less fascinating to witness the preservation of #CULTURE.

No matter how Western Africa is becoming, MackToob’s Kongo tradition is embodied by the sound of the #Ngomas (drums) remain even in his subconscious.

  •   eiramlenahc Two of my professors at BU, Linda Heywood and John Thornton, have done a ton of research on the Kingdom of Kongo and Angola. May be worth checking them out if you haven't already. 2w

nichowen #Liberia's held an official celebration of the country being declared free of #Ebola.

The government and the World Health Organisation made the announcement on Saturday after 42 days without a new case.

During Liberia's year-long epidemic 4,700 people died - more than any other country.
A public holiday was declared so pupils and workers could celebrate the virus being brought under control on Monday.

The outbreak still isn't over in neighboring #Guinea and #SierraLeone.

nichowen #LAGOS: Part of the Lagos facelift has focused on removing rubbish from underneath flyovers and bridges and the gangs, known as "areas boys", who used to hang around there. With 21 million people in its city limits, Lagos produces 12,000 tonnes of waste a day. Households pay for rubbish collections. One scheme is trying to encourage recycling by awarding points that can be exchanged for prizes. 2w

nichowen #NOTV is a content creation company that I believe in and that I work hard for.

Quality is everything to me. I remember when I had doubts buying this really expensive audio equipment that would raise the bar on how I recorded sound with video. I didn't know how I was going to pay for it but someone bet me to get out of my comfort zone and find a gig to make it pay for itself.

For weeks it was in front of my mind to get it paid for and I found that gig and it did.
I stay uncomfortable. Link in bio

nichowen America isn't perfect. Nowhere is perfect but what I've learned is that there are countless people who would kill to have the same opportunities and experiences you have.

America exports culture.
