Olamide – The Glory (Full Album Download)

I woke up to a notification from Google that Olamide has released his album, The Glory, on the day of OLIC 3 – Beast Mode. I am super excited to see what he has done on this. I am a big fan of the Owo Blow track.

Need a reminder, check out the intro video.

According to Google, the album has the following tracks:

  1. The Glory Intro
  2. Letter to Milli
  3. Journey of a Thousand Miles
  4. Underground (feat. Akuchi)
  5. Pepper Dem Gang (feat. Davolee)
  6. Lori Titi Yi
  7. Grind (feat. So Sick)
  8. Woyo
  9. Be Mine
  10. Oluwa Loni Glory
  11. Omo Wobe Anthem (feat. Burna Boy)
  12. Owo Blow
  13. Symbol of Hope
  14. Who You Epp (feat. Wande Coal & Phyno)
  15. Sons of Anarchy (feat. Burna Boy & Phyno)
  16. 2Baba Zone (Bonus Track)

I expect this to be an interesting rap album.

But the big question is: how do I get a copy? I believe in supporting the artist by purchasing at least 1 copy of their work. Once I get a copy, I can proceed to download more (as backup).

Before the bloggers flood the Internet with their watermarked copies, the artist needs to ensure that his distribution process is locked down and on point. If I google your album, I should see a link to BUY (and that download the full album) legally.

Shitty Black Friday – A Case Study of Jumia Nigeria

Ever since Konga tried to bring the Black Friday culture to Nigeria some 3 years ago with their first Yakata sale, other e-commerce stores have done their best, unsuccessfully,  to one-up the online retail giant. Unsuccessfully.

The latest Black Friday attempt by Jumia promised a whooping 45% off a PS4. Like almost every other Nigerian with an email address, I have been bombarded and harassed by several mails from Jumia promising huge savings on Black Friday. I was excited.

I had been looking forward to purchasing a PS4 after I missed the initial Yakata sale by Konga and I waited. Black Friday arrived and I went to Jumia, No PS4 at 45% off. They would be having a flash sale by 4pm.

I waited and I waited. 4pm couldn’t come fast enough. But it did. It did.

I followed the link expected a PS4 that would be priced around 60k (which ironically is the cost price of a PS4 from Amazon ~ $300).

I saw this:

84,300? But how?

Simple, Jumia marked up the selling price so that they could apply a 43% discount to bring the price “down” to 84,300. But they promised 45%. I waited and I saw this.

Someone must have seen their error, and marked the selling price up even further, to achieve the magical “45%”.

Shame on you Jumia. Shame on you.

Nigeria’s deceptive e-commerce

A deal can be defined as “an agreement entered into by two or more parties for their mutual benefit, especially in a business or political context”. The keyword here is mutual.

I received an email from VConnect Deals titled “Weekend Indomie Deals”. I have 2 boys who consume this meal a lot, so, naturally, I was interested. Opened the mail and saw this:
