Chidinma Onyejiuwa, a Nigerian blogger and political commentator based in California, USA, has been nicknamed “Blog Tigress” in the social network confraternity for her dogged but provocative views on Nigerian issues.
She earned her first degree in Government and Public Administration at the Imo State University Owerri, Nigeria. She went ahead to have some law at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Germany, and finally dabbled into healthcare industry in the USA where she currently resides.
She speaks English, Igbo, German and has an understanding levels for French and Spanish. Onyejiuwa’s upcoming book about Nigerian politics is expected by the end of this year. Onyejiuwa became more popular for her campaign against a continued meddling with political powers by most Nigerian ex-dictators and dictatorial tendencies of Nigerian elected officials.
She has a recurring dream in which she is kicking ass. Like really physically kicking, and throwing punches and doing karate moves and breaking things which she admits she could never actually pull off in real life because she has no biceps such as those of Floyd Mayweather.
If, as Sigmund Freud said, one can understand a person by the vision she conjures while sleeping, then he might have looked at things rattling around Onyejiuwa’s psyche and deduced – well, who knows.
However, Onyejiuwa holds family and friends close to her heart. Her eyes nearly well up each time she talks about her hometown, Aba and all the friends snd family she left behind in Nigeria. One is inclined to think that the combination of personality traits revealed by her dreams – tough girl with vulnerable streak – is one of the reasons she has been kicking metaphorical ass in Nigeria political milieu.
With her unrelenting posts Online, Chidinma Onyejiuwa exhibits her remarkable range (literally). Not only is she immensely readable, she is also retweetable as a straight-up and smart kid who calls it as she sees it. If there’s one thing Onyejiuwa can do in this life, it’s blog, whether or not anybody’s interested, she will blog.
