My birthday

Yesterday was my birthday, but it didn’t seem like one, at all. Work, work and even more work.

Had to launch a new version of Web4Africa, as well as many other things.

It’s all good.

I am sharing with you, a joke I received yesterday, from an online pal, “StinPhenomenon”

An Ibo man was converted to Islam, after all said and done; he was asked what name he would like to bear, he was given options of Ibrahim (Abraham) Suleiman (Solomon) Musa (Moses) and a host of others. He asked what good were the names, then the imam told him that if u choose any name there will be hope that God will bless you the way he blessed those with the names originally, then the Ibo man asked “how about Dangote”

  1. Hi, david!!

    A belated Happy birthday:-) May all your wishes come to pass.

    Have one major beef, though: what’ been happening with Ghana coverage on Global Voices? Last time I saw a post on Global Voices from Ghana, it was by a non-Ghanaian, writing about gays! That was last week.

    Now, I have been blogging about Google getting a domain for Ghana; electricity crisis; can2008, etc–and yet not ONE iota of this (since August) on Global Voices.

    Is there any reason for what looks like discrimination? Thanks.

  2. I guess the reason the igbo man chosed dangote was because he hasn’t heard of bill gates.
    nice joke and happy, mine is on the 19th.

    will u please join my meme on my niger delta blog. u will like it, try and make out time for it.

  3. Happy Birthday! I sent you a mail that morning but your PostMaster decided my mail was not to be delivered and was returned to my box. Did I miss the pounded yam, Egusi soup and bush-meat? 😉
