thekufismacker:

did y’alls dads have those stacks of african music videos on vhs like mine does? like that’s the only way you could see them in the 90’s. you’d go to the African mall and they’d be selling tapes of Koffi Olomide and Papa Wemba’s music videos.

Hahaha wow…so this must’ve been an Africa-wide phenomenon then, i think I actually learnt Lingala from all the Koffi Olomide I was forced to listen to

Africa’s mineral wealth and abundant natural resources are no secret. What we also know of much of these commodities is that, in many African countries, the profits yielded from the industries established with the purpose of securing the wealth and inheritance of the citizens of these nations, more often than not, end up in the hands of greedy politicians, easily bribed leaders, and in the pockets of the mostly foreign multinational CEOs and the companies they work for.

For decades, this has been the narrative of a dire situation that only seems to be worsening, and having equally devastating effects in both the lives of those who live in these areas, and the environment surrounding them.

Nigerian photographer, George Osodi, who comes from Nigeria’s oil rich southeastern Niger Delta region, has seen firsthand just how disastrous and traumatic the exploitation of these communities and the natural resources in these regions they occupy can be. These images show two specific areas where these distressing conditions have become the norm - in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region, and in an illegal gold mine in Ghana.
