Hello guys, call me Akinbobola. I eat and I know things. Today I want to share 10 TED & TEDx videos I think you should absolutely check out. Join me in exploring the world of ideas.
First off you just know as a Nigerian we have to start with Chimamanda Adichie. Her talk is titled ‘The Danger of a Single Story’. Like it or not, Chimamanda is one of the loudest and most eloquent voices out of Africa today. If you haven’t watched it, stop reading this, go do that and come back.
Have you watched it now? If you have then you deserve to read the rest of this post.
Next up is ‘The Price of Shame’ by Monica Lewinsky. We live in a world where privacy is continuously being viewed as subject to public consumption.
