Expats or immigrants? Photograph: Matt Brandon
I just found this interesting article on a topic that is rarely discussed, on GuardianUK. It's a MUST READ to the end, guys. Why are white people expats when the rest of us are immigrants? Who has an answer, please?

Defined that way, you should expect that any person going to work outside of his or her

How Long are We Going to be Slaves to DSTV?

And here is Ecetera's latest article. He's calling out DSTV this time. Who agrees with him? 
I have decided to lend my voice to the call for sanctions against Dstv in Nigeria, despite the fact that I have been cautioned by a couple of entertainers that speaking up against the almighty cable network may result in the banning of my works on its network. 
Yes, it is true that challenging these multinationals in Nigeria attracts sanctions especially for entertainers, but I have decided to speak up because I am one of the millions of Nigerians affected by any increment in subscription charges. Moreover, what’s the point of having my works on a platform that my fans can’t afford? 
Every entertainer who’s chickened out of this campaign for his/her selfish interest should
