“Existentialism” is a very broad term similar to “theism”. It’s applied to several subjects of philosophical and psychological thought. The philosophy of existentialism ultimately constitutes that every one of us is ultimately free; i.e we’re to recognize that as human beings we are free to choose, not only what to do when faced with moral choices, but what to value and how to live. Philosophers in the existentialist camp want these facts about the human freedom to be not merely accepted, but absorbed by each person for him- or herself.

How are Machine Learning Models going to change the Payments Industry?
It wasn’t so long ago that CEO’s and large commercial banks were convinced that more bank locations would always be necessary to service and acquire new customers. However, in the last ten or five years we have seen an emergence of Digital Banks, that have never and will probably never own a physical location, but still manage to grow their user base and add additional services including insurance, mortgages, and loans.
In the Banking industry, we have seen companies like First Bank of Nigeria, United Bank of Africa, Zenith…
The world or earth as we see it is a tiny stage in a large cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all the generals, emperors, commanders, and world leaders so that in glory and triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the “people” of one part of this world on the scarcely distinguishable “people” of some other part. …

Even relatively casual observers will have noticed explosive rise in use of social media in Africa.

I should warn you that this message will not be eloquent. However, it will be sincere, especially in light of the fact that you will never read it. I hope you feel these words like a weight in your chest, until you find yourself amazed that a heart can go on beating under such a burden.
I love you. I love you desperately, violently, tenderly, completely. I want you in ways that I know you would find shocking. My love, you don’t belong with a man like me. In the past I’ve done things you wouldn’t approve of, and I’ve…
running splash of rust
and gold-flung and scattered
among seven hills like broken
china in the sun.” J.P Clark
So I came across a question on twitter the other day by Hotels.ng; what’s the most underrated city in Nigeria? and I didn’t have to think long about it to settle for Ibadan. Ibadan is city from a time older than the country itself, the origin of the land like major cities in the world has been characterised wars and bloodshed. …
I wondered lonely as a cloud
Skipping over valleys and hills
When all at once I saw a Dame:
A bouquet, of wild flowers
Beside the lake beneath the trees
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze
Her hair continuous as the stars that shine
Her eyes twinkling like those in the milky way
She stretched gracefully like sails in the wind
Along the margin of a bay
I saw her at a glance
Tossing her head in a sprightly dance
The waves beside her danced
But had nothing on her
A man could not but be happy
In such a jocund company
Transfixed in amazement
What insight she had brought to me
So, I lie on my bed
In sober reflection
She flashes upon my inward eye
Oh, the peace and serenity
My heart bounces with pleasure fills
While dancing with the Dame
