I get the term from Bibi - as a catch-all for all those crazy creative Nigerians out there in the diaspora who wouldn't dream of living in Nigeria and being forced into banking or law or some other faceless fatface job. Throwaway Nigerians may visit the mother country from time to time, but only a tiny few would ever dream of living there.
One such is Keziah Jones, the incredibly talented musician who has from the start, followed his own path. Bankers and lawyers seldom do anything to change society (ok they play their role). But compared to troubled creative elements who put their life on the line for their art, their value is insignificant. Nigeria needs to find a way to pull some of these people back, if the country is to transform and embrace creativity: the engine room of capitalism and development.
