China paying COVID-19 reparations to Africa, Review of Dremo’s Codename Vol 2 | Here are the best Nigerian articles of the week

Each week here at YNaija, we round up the best Nigerian writing on the internet, highlighting the stories, profiles, interviews and in-depth reporting that rise above the daily churn.

Here are the ones that caught our attention:

The Three: April Quarantine Edition – Saratu

Funke Akindele, who had been doing messaging for NCDC, decided it was a good idea to throw a star-studded party to celebrate her husband’s birthday. Said husband then posted a short video from the party. A large part of the reason they likely thought it was fine to share footage of a lavish party when we are all meant to be hunkering down for quarantine is because rules usually exempt people with money and access.

Nigerian tailors are hand-making PPE to help fight coronavirus – Aisha Salaudeen 

So far, tailors in Aba, the state’s commercial nerve center, have produced 200,000 face masks and 3,000 overalls, the agency said. One of the tailors, Queen Duruibe, told CNN that the overalls she makes are waterproof and puncture-resistant, and are made from a polyamide fabric coated with protective materials.
China, a country that only within the past four decades has managed to lift more than 850 million people out of poverty, would understand how critical it is for African countries to accelerate inclusive growth. While economies in Asia, Europe and the Americas have announced hefty emergency stimulus packages for their people and businesses, countries in Africa struggle to meet short-term food needs.
Perhaps its the heightened sense of honesty, or his teeming evolution which he allows to reflect on the project, or the sonorous sounds produced by twelve different people, the fact remains that Codename vol. 2 is a successful attempt by Dremo at Hip-hop excellence.
Usually, when celebrities go out of pocket with their opinions, many people advise them to keep quiet, and are sometimes rude about it, which isn’t really fair, ‘cause they’re people too. As much as they might say and do a lot of flagrant things, celebrities, much like the rest of us, reserve the right to express themselves freely. It’s then up to those paying attention and who care enough to express their dissatisfaction.
