Nigeria: Blogger's opinion about the Superblog

The debate about the new Nigerian blog aggregator, the SuperBlog, continues: “The purpose of Naija Alive is to create a unified voice for Nigeria, a unified voice that contains many voices. Such deserves praise and support. But, I never said that my blog was a Nigerian blog. Sometimes I write on gender issues and poetry. I would not be happy if my blog was suddenly listed as a gay blog. Nor is it a political blog. Rather insensitively, my blog has been re-named to suit the needs of Naija Alive in their hurry to get as much going as quickly as possible.”
