PHOTO OF THE WEEK - LADI KWALI

Happy New Month Lovelies! To think that this is the fastest year ever, wont be a lie! But the good news is, I am hurrying to meet my quarterly blogging target before the "Ember Month" Hope you are meeting up with you goals and target. 

I saw this picture on @genevievemagazine Instagram handle, and I thought to share! Here is the caption "genevievemagazine:This is Ladi Kwali, a legendary Nigerian Potter. In 1980 the Nigerian Government invested on her with the insignia of the Nigerian National Merit Award (NNMA), the highest national honor for academic achievement. 

Her picture appears at the back of the NGN 20 note.


Sometime last week on Ahmadu Bello Way, I was caught up by a TV station Vox Pop, and I was having fun getting all the puzzles thrown at me by the presenter correctly, until he asked me the "Money Question" I have learnt alot about finances from Nimi Akinkugbe and I never thought I will fail the money question.
This post and the money question is about the great personalities on our Nigerian currency. Isnt it surprising that we spend money without finding time to know who is on the Naira note? If only I got that last question from the Vox pop correctly, as I did the others, I would have walked away with 5000naira. How well do you know your currency? The story and personalities behind the Naira? 
Do you have interesting photos from travel locations, Art or any interesting Scene and will like to share, Kindly send as an email to Ujulilyan@gmail.com

  1. Funny enough I don't have a very wide knowledge of the people on the currency I spend each day. Sometimes the question pops up in school examinations or external quizzes and one is left confused over something that should be registered in our hearts already.

    I have to learn this ASAP!
