I have heard many tragic stories about Nigerians in USA, but nothing as
tragic as the story of Akin Jones- the smart, young and friendly Nigerian
man who died recently. The vivid account of events leading to Akin's death
is so chilling that any one with heart would shed tears for the young man.
The following quote from the movie about Akin's life (The Other Side of
Life) is what touches me the most. His wife-Nike Jones- in her words "...my
husband walked into the house late that night. I was one month pregnant, and
planning to break the news of my pregnancy to him the next morning when the
unexpected happened....I didn't know there was an Other Side of Life until I
lived through it."
Watch out for this excellent African Movie Written, Produced and Directed by
