HAVE AFRICAN YOUTHS FAILED? By Anago James Akeem Osho

Yes i am mad. What is wrong with the young African minds. Go back to history and see where we are coming from. Our minds are polluted and you think you know what you are doing and are better than others because you go to the church or mosque? The Holy books teach better. Do not follow men, follow the divine.

The hope of Africa are the youths and everywhere i have traveled to in Africa, the youths are not empowered and they just watch and try to survive by ''doing anything'', traveling abroad to make ends meet and care for their families and often time meet their water loo. 

See what is going on in Libya as young Africans are sold in public. Slavery continues in Mauritania and the slaves are Black. No one is talking about the Arabs, Chinese etc. taking over Africa. It is a conscious effort. The youth seems not to be aware or care less about events around them but seems to have forgotten that they are the miracle and hope that the continent seek.

I am going to…

ALABAMA, THE CLOTILDA AND THE LAST SLAVE SURVIVOR By Anago James Akeem Osho

Is ‘’Home’’ where ever you find yourself (either willingly or not)? This is the question I raised in the case of Oluwale Kasola (Cudjoe Lewis) and his wife Abile ( they were the ones who began the founding of the African Town, Mobile Alabama in the United States known as Africatown today.

The American state of Alabama is rich in history although some are not pleasant, yet the people can take advantage of the opportunities that seems not to be there. In reality, opportunities are not given it is created. The Clotilda was the name of the recorded last slave ship to the United States of America. ‘’Recorded last slave ship’’, because many came to the U.S.A illegally and were not documented.
The Clotilda arrived in Alabama on the night of a Sunday, dated 8th of July, 1860. Many among the slaves that were taken to the Americas through the slave port of Whydah (Ouidah), Benin republic were of Yoruba Stock.
The economy of Dahomey was established on slave trading ventures. It was on one of such sl…

WHY PEOPLE HARDLY DISCUSS THE TRAN SAHARAN ENSLAVE TRADE By Anago James Akeem Osho anago.tourism@gmail.com

A woman and about six children and a European male visited the museum. ‘’Hello madam’’, I greeted her and she responded by saying ‘’How are you Anago? Quite a while and how have you been?’’.
Another smooth Jeep parked behind her car and she said, ‘’I brought my visitor to you. He wants to learn about the Tran Atlantic slave trade. I told him that you are a reincarnated slave and the right person for the topic”.
‘’Thank you madam for the compliment’’ I responded.
About three more people joined the tour group. I noticed among the other group a man whom I later discovered to be an African American. He did his DNA and traced his root to Yoruba land, and Ibadan precisely.
The people in this group were very knowledgeable. They came with a purpose and know a lot about African history.
The African policy makers should make it compulsory that schools, especially both elementary and high school should learn their history. It seems people of African origin in Diaspora are more keen and passionate …

WHAT IS TOURISM?

''Tourism is the packaging of history, art, ideas, infrastructure, and the environment. The journey on the path of history is a conscious route to self-discovery. If this is true, the distortion of history by the mischievous minds should be gravely discouraged, just as plagiarism carries prison sentences. History and Tourism are inseparable Siamese twins''. Anago James Akeem Osho (2017)
Anago James Akeem Osho, is an Historian, Museum Curator, Tour Guide, Tourism operator, Author, Historic, Cultural and Heritage manager. He consult for DNA tested Africans.

Letter to Asterixus: A friend insearch of Elixir By Anago James Akeem Osho

Dear Asterixus,

I am on a trip to Whydah, an historical place in West Africa. How are you and New York City today? I got the last message you sent to me. I did not shiver and maybe you do not know how graceful and important you are.

Our planet is a wonderful place but the evil in the heart of humankind kept destroying this beautiful place. Maybe we don't know that this evil is also destroying us as a race of people.

THE ROAD TO THE ABOLITION OF SLAVE TRADE IN LAGOS: THE DRAMA BETWEEN OBA AKITOYE AND KOSOKO By Anago James Akeem Osho

Oba Akitoye was a king who believed in legitimate commerce and he desired a good relationship between his people and the British, but his nephew was a defiant slave trader who believed that Oba Akitoye usurped his position as a king. Before Akitoye became king, Kosoko was in exile in Whydah (Ouidah) and Whydah was another important slave trading port that time.

Origin of European Slave Trade in Africa, And their Voyage to Lagos Nigeria By Anago James Akeem Osho

The Slave trade is a universal phenomenon. It is not synonymous to a people but the Trans Atlantic Slave trade changed how slavery was viewed. It becomes based on skin color.

The purpose and reason for my quest to attend Heritage Preservation training By Anago James Akeem Osho

In my research into both the history of Lekki, Epe, Lagos Island, Abeokuta, Apomu, Alaketu, El Mina/Cape Coast, Ouidah, Badagry and Seriki Faremi Williams Abass Compound, also known as the Brazilian Barracoon of 40 Slaves and the Seriki Faremi Williams AbassSlave Museum, I realized that the history of

the trans-Atalantic Slave trade is still relevant.

To be a Tourism practitioner, especially if you are starting off in Africa and Asia needs patience and passion for distinction. The financial aspect will come when the tourism enthusiasts do it's duties judiciously.  Education is important. Imbibe traveling, History, Anthropology, Ethnography, Archeology, and Social Studies. The knowledge of these subjects will add to your knowledge. Tour Guiding and Heritage management need continuous training.
