Kids are arranged into two circles, one with one more member than the other. When a signal is given, they begin to run in opposite directions singing “fire on the mountain, run, run, run” until a whistle signalling – “fire is up!” is blown. Then each player tries to get a partner from the other circle.

After the scramble, the player without a partner is penalised to do certain stunts or made to squat in the centre of the circle. The removal process continues until one pair is left and the pair are crowned the winners.  The name for this game varies across Nigerian cultures.

 

Tinko Tinko

Girls especially loved this one. It involves two partners facing each other, while the theme song is sang by both as the game goes on. With hands held half way up, they begin the game which involves interchanging of hands front and back and slamming of hands by both partners. In this game, a lot of clapping happens in this game.

Who Is In The Garden:

Here, the children make a big circle, starting with singing “form a big circle”. After that, the anchor then stays in the middle and runs in the circle singing, “ Who is in the garden a little fine boy/ girl (depending on the sex of the child) can I come and see him/ her, then everybody then responds “No” “No” “No”, then the anchor someone else and says “follow me”. This cycle is repeated until the last person remains, then others go in hiding while the last person goes searching for them.

 

Police and thief:

This was like Nigerian kids replicating action blockbursters. In this game, there are the good guys (police) and the bad guys (thieves) but the stolen object is imagined. The kids then divide themselves into two groups, then the police group will try to find and catch those people playing thieves.

 

Ten Ten:

In playing this game, girls stand facing each other and clap their hands as they move their legs to a rhythm. The goal of each girl during this game is to ensure that she does not raise the same leg directly facing the other girl – which means it is no problem for a girl to raise a left leg when the other girl raises a right leg. The moment a girl raises the wrong leg, the other girl scores a point.

Boju-Boju:

 This is the Nigerian version of hide and seek. Every other person goes into hiding and the person seeking will start by singing the song, ‘boju boju o…’ and after singing, he starts to chase and anyone he/she catches will be the next to seek. Every seeker starts his/her chase by sing the song.

Don Jazzy sends message to Buhari over appointment of new economic team

Don Jazzy sends message to Buhari over appointment of new economic team Don Jazzy 1024x576

Mavin producer, Don Jazzy has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing a new economic team.

The Presidency had said that the new team is made up of the following: Prof. Doyin Salami – Chairman; Dr. Mohammed Sagagi – Vice-Chairman; Prof. Ode Ojowu – Member; Dr. Shehu Yahaya – Member; Dr. Iyabo Masha – Member; Prof. Chukwuma Soludo – Member; Mr. Bismark Rewane – Member; Dr. Mohammed Adaya Salisu – Secretary (Senior Special Assistant to the President, Development Policy).

Reacting, Don Jazzy, while describing the appointees as ‘ brightest minds said they deserved the appointment.

He, however, advised the Buhari led-government to prioritize the development of ’s Human Development Index, HDI.

He wrote on Instagram, ”Appointees in the new Economic Advisory Council are some of the brightest minds we have in the country and their appointments are well-deserved.

”Hopefully, the government’s reposed trust in their expertise would have positive effects on the economy. However, I would advise the govt. to prioritize the development of our HDI in this term. Substantial funds should be earmarked in our fiscal budgets to improve our Education and Health sectors in compliance with WHO and UNESCO. Bill Gates sounded this note of warning in a meeting with the National Economic council one year ago, faulting the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan(ERGP) which doesn’t prioritize human capacity development.

”I understand people would be wondering how this would affect our economy positively. Let’s consider this. In the south here where Education is considered to be very important in many families, parents spend a lot of money on educating their children.

”Many of these parents are civil servants who only rely on their salaries in these times when the minimum wage is a meagre $83.5. These parents are forced to take different loans to educate their offspring and keep them healthy, thereby making their monthly net income to be insufficient.

” This is one of the reasons why more people keep slipping into extreme poverty everyday. Almost half of the population is already in abject penury and all hands must be on deck to avoid the worse.”
