Welcome to NigerianMuse!

The Nigerian Muse, Professor Bolaji Aluko
Bolaji Aluko, the "Nigerian Muse"

Writing always to inform, to teach, to provoke, to amuse, to inspire, to express a point-of-view - and to inquire, whereupon to learn !
© 2004-2008
After years of resisting, this website is available as an archive my many Musings, Quarterbackings, Essays and Star Articles!

What weakened my resistance? The emergence of easier tools for website development and maintenance.

NigerianMuse.com can be regarded as a meta-website, through which I share my favorite bookmarks.

The site is mainly one in which the very latest versions of my many writings will be made available, after undergoing revisions and after receiving feedback from readers, who might have first read them on the other websites to which they are liberally released.

Finally, if you would like to provide some feedback about any of my postings, comment freely, using the comment form below each article, leave a message in our Guestbook, or more privately via the Contact page.

Thank you for visiting, do come back, and don't forget to visit: My Special Links

"I work currently with Bluebird Communications Limited; a Lagos based marketing communications/branding consultancy as Head of Strategy and New Business. Before returning to Advertising in February 2007 I was a Product Manager /Ag. Head, Savings Unit in the Consumer and Retail Banking Department of Afribank Nigeria Plc. I joined Afribank in 1999 after garnering rich experience in journalism, advertising, public relations and marketing. During my stint with the Bank I had the opportunity of Heading Units such as Media/Investors Relations, Internal Communications/Publications and Advertising and Corporate Promotions in the Corporate Planning and Development Department of the Bank. I also edited Afribank News, the Bank’s quarterly house journal between January 2002 and June 2003. I started my professional career with Vanguard Newspapers as a Reporter in the Literary Desk of the national newspaper in 1990 and joined the services of Rosabel Advertising Limited in October 1991 as a Trainee Executive in the Media Department. I returned to the print media in 1995 by taking employment with the Guardian Newspapers as Advert/Supplement Executive. I, in this capacity combined successfully the onerous schedule of writing news and features regularly on various business sectors and marketing newspapers in The Guardian stable for profitability and acceptance. The Vanguard Newspaper again beckoned on me in 1997 to join the pioneering team of professionals that established the newspaper's editorial supplement Desk as a Senior Supplement’s Reporter. After a very brief stint with Vanguard Newspapers I took up employment with Tanus Communications Limited, a full-fledged marketing communications company, as a Senior Media Relations Officer. While in the Media Relations Department of Tanus Communications, I consulted for several companies in the areas of media and public relations, events management/marketing, issues management, publishing, evaluation of media/public perception of issues, advertising campaign planning and monitoring etc. Prominent among the companies I consulted for were Union Bank Plc, Chartered Bank Plc, NAL Merchant Bank, Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG), Mobil, NICON Insurance, Bureau for Public Enterprises (BPE) and the Petroleum Special Trust Fund (PTF) etc. I was promoted as the Head of this department, before I left the firm to join Afribank Nigeria Plc in 1999. I am a 1994 graduate of Mass Communications from the Ogun State Polytechnic, Abeokuta and also have a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree from the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) which I completed in 2001. I am a qualified Associate Member of industry relevant professional associations such as the Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON), the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), Federation of African Public Relations Associations (FAPRA) and the Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM).

Patricia Daboh In the words of Patricia:
"I am an African American woman. My Nigerian (Ijaw descent) and I went through 17 months of separation due to going through the immigration process. We were married January 4, 2007. He joined me in the United States on Thursday, June 19, 2008; which was one of the happiest days of my life. We are on our second honeymoon, and we are amazed at how the good Lord Jesus blessed our life and brought us together once again. Some Nigerian people were denied visas at the time when my husband had his interview, and the same could have happened to him. But the Lord blessed him to receive his visa. When he flew to me it was his first time flying. It is wonderful watching him discover America and a world that is so different from his own. No two people could be happier!"

Jide Aluko In the words of Jide:
"'Jide Aluko was born to the famility of Mr.&Mrs Donald Aluko sometime in the mid '70s. I was educated in both Lagos and Ekiti States: Eko Boys' High Sch., Ogunnire Comprehensive High Sch., and the prestigious University of Lagos. I studied Mass Communication with specialisation in broadcasting, even though I have always had my heart set on print journalism because of my flair for writing and reticent nature (I'm a more articulate writer than a speaker). I am driven and motivated to write by socio-political events around me. I like to be seen as social writer than a commercial writer. Nothing appeals to my intellectual being like a well articulated and logical oral presentation. I'm an avid lover of country music, reaggae, soul with gospel contents, juju of the 60s, 70s,and 80s, Fuji and traditional music. In fact, I have a broad spectrum of musical taste with no specific favourite. I dream of a great Nigeria devoid of any systemic failures."
