Sickle Cell Anemia is a very problematic and common disease in Nigeria especially in Northern Nigeria where the gene is so prevalent and their is almost zero education. The daughter of our President Zahra Buhari is now an Ambassador for it and educating her people as well as the whole country via her mom's NGO. Zahra lost her half sister 5 years ago. As a US trained Pharmacist, Journalist and Public Relations Specialist, I do my best educating less privileged Nigerians.

During the 2014 Easter weekend, Nigerians read a post on Facebook that was quite tragic. Politician and well known Nigerian government official Nasir El Rufai now a Governor in Kaduna state disclosed that he lost his daughter that Easter Sunday to the complications of Sickle Cell Anemia. Previously in 2012, Former Nigerian leader General Buhari (now our leader again as President Buhari) also lost his daughter Zulai to a similar complication of Sickle Cell Anemia during childbirth, both Northern Nigerians.

The fact is that Most Nigerians need to learn more about Sickle Cell Anemia which is a disease that must be properly managed and needs tremendous education in. The Sickle Cell gene and the trait need to be discussed with families possessing them as it may affect future offspring and their lives. In modern countries, Doctors even tell pregnant mothers to terminate pregnancies due to these risk factors.

Sickle Cell Anemia is an inherited disorder that affects mostly black people. Red blood cells become crescent-shaped because of a genetic defect. They break down rapidly, so oxygen does not get to the body's organs, causing Anemia. The crescent-shaped red blood can cells also get stuck in tiny blood vessels, causing pain

It has some tremendous abilities to cause many complications in different aspects of life even though most of those complications are more visible when the patient has what is known as a “crises” when the symptoms escalate to almost life or death proportions.

In the case of Zulai, President Buhari’s daughter, it was reported that she was in the process of childbirth when she allegedly had the crises before she passed away delivering a healthy baby girl. As tragic as that may sound, childbirth involves the loss of a lot of blood and there may be a need for transfusion in a sickle cell patient. This brings me to the

Many Nigerians still unfairly assume that elite Nigerians in politics always have to fly their families abroad before getting quality care. Here are two situations where two high ranking political officials lost daughters to this deadly disease on Nigerian soil.

Though Sickle cell is limited to mostly people in the black race, it does not discriminate based on socio-economic status. It just needs education especially within our Nigerian communities that are not as literate, educated or live in poverty and have no access to good health care.

Complications that the US Center for Disease Control say patient and health care givers should monitor closely include Stroke which can occur if sickle cells block blood flow to an area of your brain. Signs of stroke include seizures, weakness or numbness of your arms and legs, sudden speech difficulties, and loss of consciousness. If your baby or child has any of these signs and symptoms, seek medical treatment immediately.

A stroke can be fatal. Acute chest syndrome is a life-threatening complication of sickle cell anemia causes chest pain, fever and difficulty breathing. Acute chest syndrome can be caused by a lung infection or by sickle cells blocking blood vessels in your lungs. It may require emergency medical treatment with antibiotics and other treatments.

Pulmonary hypertension is when sickle cell anemia patients develop high blood pressure in their lungs (pulmonary hypertension). Shortness of breath and difficulty breathing are common symptoms of this condition, which can be fatal. Organ damage where Sickle cells can block blood flow through blood vessels, immediately depriving an organ of blood and oxygen. In sickle cell anemia, blood is also chronically low on oxygen. Chronic deprivation of oxygen-rich blood can damage nerves and organs in your body, including your kidneys, liver and spleen. Organ damage can be fatal. Blindness, skin ulcers and also gallstones are also common.

Why are lawmakers and police ignoring my pleas on domestic violence? Even some activists are deaf to these pleas. We are NOT progressing in Nigeria.  I tweeted everyone from the First Lady to the Police, not a word.

I'm NOT only the most beautiful 52yo in #Nigeria, I am THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERIOD! #HNNBeauty


Nigerians cannot post pictures of their ugly ass moms and sisters on social media yet they came out in throngs to denounce my declaration as the most beautiful 52yo. What these fools from my country don't know is that I am actually the MOST BEAUTIFUL in the whole country...and I don't even need a beauty pageant to tell me that.

They see me out in public and start questioning my age saying I'm 35yo and don't look 52yo but once I became assertive, confident and bold to say it on instagram, they all have 70yo grandmas who look better than me. Certified assholes!


The Illiteracy KILLING #Nigerians. An average Nigerian CAN'T read OR write! #HNNEducation




I wrote an article about  blogger Linda Ikeji regarding how I despised her for years, a troll tweeted me stating Linda has never mentioned my name nor tweeted at me. . Never ever? This is what you get when people don't click the article and read it. They simply are illiterates and cannot read or write. Nigerians say I'm insulting them when I call them this. Well then learn to READ!

#HNNWomen Why Survivors of Wartime #RAPE in #Africa are NEVER going to be silenced #HNNTerror

Media preview

First they shot her husband.
Then the soldiers killed her two sons, ages 5 and 7. When the uniformed men yanked her daughter from her hands next, Mary didn’t think it could get any worse.

Mary and her family were members of the Nuer tribe in South Sudan, caught up in a vicious power struggle between the new country’s President Salva Kiir, a member of the Dinka tribe, and his Vice President, Riek Machar, a Nuer. Their war, fought largely along ethnic lines, has turned the northern part of the country into a wasteland. At least 50,000 people have been killed, according to the U.N., nearly 4 million face famine, and another 2.2 million have fled their homes, recounting tales of civilian slaughter, gratuitous torture and even forced cannibalism. Mary and her family were among the tens of thousands of civilians seeking refuge at a U.N. peacekeeping base in the northern city of Bentiu when they ran into Kiir’s forces on the road in June 2014.

The 27-year-old recounts what occurred next distantly, as if she were explaining something that happened to someone else. The soldiers told Mary that they considered the Nuers in the camps to be rebels, and that they killed her sons because they couldn’t risk letting them grow up to be fighters. “We don’t kill the women and the girls,” the soldiers told Mary. “They said they would only rape us. As if rape were different than death,” says Mary, speaking in a safe house in neighboring Uganda run by Make Way Partners, an American Christian organization that provides housing, medical care and schooling for South Sudanese orphans and victims of human trafficking. After the soldiers killed her husband and sons, five of them held her down and forced her to watch as three others raped her 10-year-old daughter. Her name was Nyalaat. When the men were done, Mary says, “I couldn’t even see my little girl anymore. I could only see blood.” Then the men took turns with Mary. Nyalaat died a few hours later. “I wanted to die too.”

Instead, Mary made it to a U.N. camp for civilians displaced by war. The conflict raged on, and soldiers—she’s not even sure from which army—were able to slip in to the camp through gaps in the fence and rape whichever women they could catch. “It happened to all of us: little girls, grandmothers. They didn’t care.” The rules were simple, says Mary, who asked that her full name not be used. “If you calm down when they are raping you, they won’t beat you. But if you resist, they will beat you, even so much to use the gun in you.”

Rape in war is as old as war itself. But the intimate nature of sexual assault means that the horrors often go undocumented, sanitized out of history books and glossed over in news accounts that focus on casualties and refugee numbers. Yet that mass rape is so common in wartime only makes it more corrosive. It spreads disease. Its stigma destroys families and breaks down society. It leaves unwanted children who serve as constant reminders of the worst day of their mother’s life. “Rape is a weapon even more powerful than a bomb or a bullet,” says Jeanna Mukuninwa, a 28-year-old woman from Shabunda, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. “At least with a bullet, you die. But if you have been raped, you appear to the community like someone who is cursed. After rape, no one will talk to you; no man will see you. It’s a living death.”

Why I DESPISED @LindaIkeji for YEARS--Kemi Olunloyo #HNNMedia


Ethics, slander, defamation issues come to play when people start sending in FAKE stories where Linda has gotten in trouble with before with me included on the 2013 story of my threatening to shoot bloggers. She introduced me on her blog to the Nigerian public for the first time as a violent person holding an M16 in a photo that belonged to Toronto Police of guns I helped seized of the streets in Canada when I was a gun violence activist.

This defamed me and is the reason why I despise her since 2013. Linda heard about the case where I took 25 blogs down in a day for copyright violations where bloggers were stealing my photos on my Facebook page. I filed DCMA's and many people lost access to their blogs and it was chaos as I was trending. 

Linda wrote a story titled "Ms Kemi threaten's bloggers with gun" and I went livid. Though she later apologized on twitter sarcastically, she vowed NEVER to blog about me ever again, a promise she's kept. I did NOT accept that apology. It was way too disrespectful and she didn't mean it. I started to dig into her past and began ripping and mocking her for a three year period including busting her on the Dasuki money. Something she did not deny in her recent Encomium interview.

The BIGGEST Mistake #African Musicians make with #SocialMedia #HNNMusic


My Journalism career began in 1994 as a Music Journalist and I ran a music blog for five years in Canada. HipHossip Canada was endorsed by BET, MTV, VHI and MuchMusic, the four most credible music channels on television globally. I was an active music blogger then later with my public relations degree, I floated a music publicist job representing several now famous artists in the beginning and working with some via interviews or just representation. Examples are Ciara, Drake, Sean Kingston, Di’Ja, BOB, Classified, Nicki Minaj, Knaan, Vital and more.

Many Canadian artists complained that they did not get proper exposure in the USA as compared to
how American artists got prominence on the radio in Canada and at concerts. The key to all that controversy is social media. Many artists failed to invest in social media and the same happens right here in Nigeria and the rest of Africa. Social media is self promotion and there is no other way to promote yourself best. African artists need to upload their promotional songs on social media and let fans get a snippet of what their music is all about. Artists are not using social media to the fullest; most don’t want to hire social media managers such as myself to help manage their platforms. Justin Bieber was uploading his music on YouTube when Scooter Braun discovered him, took him to Usher and the rest is history.

How do you use social media to the max? Everyone is not Jay-Z who tweets 3 times a year and still remains the most successful rapper in the world. He built a brand to get there. While Jay is obsessed about his blog, wife Beyonce is crazy about her Tumblr blog and instagram where you can see her daily activities especially when she’s on tour. Some images are very personal with her daughter Blue Ivy. Beyonce never tweets and has millions of followers. To artists just starting out, start somewhere. Open every platform. Google #HNNAfrica and see my platforms. You need Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr or another blog or website, YouTube for your videos, Soundcloud and Reverbnation for your audios

Once you have your presence everywhere, pick easy names and don’t make your handles complicated. Avoid underscores, mix of caps and numbers your fans won’t remember. My amateur artist name is Kesus. I chose @IamKesus on twitter or one can choose @RealKesus if @Kesus is not available. Don’t pick names like @Kesus_Rap. 

#HNNAfrica ends with just that on every domain. Try doing the same, and then start to share your platforms all over the internet and build a fanbase. Use hashtags on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. They help people find you easily. #Music #NigerianMusic #AfricanMusic, creative hashtags like #Grammy #Junos #AMA are more. When someone is looking for something, they may just find you. Try that and get nominated for that next music award show.
