A Graduate, Mother Of 2, Edo State Indigene... Meet Nigerian Activist, Aisha Yesufu


Aisha Yesufu and her husband, Aliu


Aisha Yesufu is a Nigerian activist. Born in December 1974 to Edo parents, Yesufu grew up in an underprivileged society in Kano.

Moved by the deplorable condition of her childhood environment, she vowed to acquire proper education and not be married off at a tender age of 11.

Her ambition got fulfilled as she eventually graduated with a B.Sc. in Microbiology from Bayero University, Kano after foiled attempts in two previous institutions namely Uthman Dan Fodio University, Sokoto, and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

‘’First of all, I am not from the north. A lot of people always make the mistake of thinking I am from the north, though I was born and brought up in Kano. I am from Agbede in Edo state. I am an Edo woman and married to an Auchi man. Some people say a woman should not be heard, especially a Muslim woman….” Yesufu said, in an interview with TheGuardian.

A wife of over 20 years to Mr. Aliu and mother of two (male and female) children, Yesufu prioritizes her family and religion, Islam.

Passionate about bringing an end to injustice, she nurtured her activism in her student days as an undergraduate. However, her full-blown activism dates back to 2014 after the kidnap of the Chibok girls by insurgents as she is the co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Campaign (BBOG).

Now at 46, there is no stopping her as she has been seen actively campaigning against SARS and police brutality in recent times.

Boosie Badazz is suing Mark Zuckerberg for $20m for Racial Discrimination after his Instagram account was shut dow

American rapper, Boosie Badazz is suing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg after his Instagram account was shut down in August for posting racy content.

During a recent sit-down with VladTV, the 38-year-old rapper said he was suing the tech guru for $20 million. He claims the platform’s decision to deactivate his account took a heavy toll on his business ventures.

Boosie alleges he was targeted because of his race, pointing out that there are plenty of people who have been banned from Instagram or for posting ‘derogatory things’, but those accounts were resorted.

“[Zuckerberg] made some of my business ventures go down, so I’m suing him now. I’m filing a lawsuit against him now,” he said. “He stopped me off Instagram and he didn’t put me back on Instagram. And that’s affecting my business,” Boosie said, and added that other people who have done worse have been allowed back on.

“This is the first time my Instagram has ever been taken from me,” he continued. “So you can give other 2 million people their Instagram back for derogatory things they did? And I posted a girl with an emoji’s over her. This is discrimination. Something is wrong. Somebody must be mad ’cause I said their name wrong and they’re trying to chastise me.”

“And my Black people are starting to tell me, ‘Boosie, this man is a racist. He knows you affects the Black community and make them smile every morning. Why is he not giving you your page back when gives all these people their page back. He might be trying to stop us from smiling’ … You’re going too far. I had ten million followers. You’re f*cking up my income … you’re showing discrimination.”

Boosie is seeking $20 million, which he claims has been his lost income from losing his page.
