Dear Omarosa, Be Honest, Are You Really Nigerian?

An open letter to Omarosa on behalf of Nigerians everywhere.

Dear Omarosa, they said you’re Nigerian but we don’t believe you. Omarosa, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Naija no dey carry last,” but somehow you managed to carry last on The Apprentice, not once, not twice, but three times. In the Yoruba language, that’s what we call an “Olodo.” Olodo literally translates to “one who owns zeroes.” It is clear that you own Zero wins my sister, you also own all of the Ls as our African American brethren would say.


Dear Omarosa, many of us Africans living in the diaspora don’t believe in witchcraft, juju or voodoo, we like to consider ourselves “enlightened.” How foolish of us, we must now question everything we learned at Harvard, because, clearly you’re acting under evil spirits, you are under demonic oppression, something is wrong and you need deliverance. I know an auntie that slipped through the immigration ban with some strong holy water, please email me so that we can help you.

Dear Omarosa, on your website, you listed that you are an Ambassador and Mentor, who dash you Ambassadorship and to what nation? And you must be mentoring people like Meek Mills given how many zeroes and L’s he continues to take. From a particular angle, you guys kind of resemble one another too, but that’s another day.

Dear Omarosa, what is this rubbish?

Dear Omarosa, be honest, what did you do to Michael Clarke Duncan? Be honest, this is a safe space.

Dear Omarosa, we need to see your birth certificate and passport, because we know you can’t be Nigerian. Which village are you from? Who are your people? Who are your people?!!!

Dear Omarosa, we’re tired of you like those 419 email scams, at least those emails gave us hope, they promised us something no matter how implausible, but you, you give us no hope. You’re like, Trump, a genital rash that simply won’t go away.

Dear Omarosa, stop plagiarizing your nationality, just gerrara here man.

Let Jojo Abot's New Afrofuturistic Video Hypnotize You

The Ghanaian artist releases the new video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," an entirely iPhone-recorded track.

Jojo Abot is rounding out a strong year which has seen her tour South Africa, release the NGIWUNKULUNKULU EP and work with institutions like the New Museum, Red Bull Sound Select and MoMA on her art and performances.

Jojo is now sharing her latest music video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," a song featured on her iPhone-only production project, Diary Of A Traveler.

"Nye Veve Sese is an invitation to let go of the burden of pain and suffering that keeps us from becoming our best and greatest selves," a statement from Jojo's team reads. "Asking the question of why pain is pleasurable to both the one in pain and the source of the pain. Often time the two being one and the same."

Watch her new "meditative piece," which was shot in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, below.

Jojo Abot will be playing her final US show of the year in New York City alongside Oshun on October 26 at Nublu 151. Grab your tickets here.
