Hello readers, I have been meaning to write this post since last week but somehow I always get too busy or somehow I just forget and before I knew it, its monday.

 I was in church last wesnesday and just settled in to hear the message of the evening, when the pastor introduced a young man by man COBHAMS, and the church erupted in joy and claps, people stood up to hail the young man, well for me the name does not ring the loud bell but I think  I heard it sometime ago, well as he walked up the pulpit, I couldn’t help but wonder why he was been assisted by a lady and he took a step at a time, I asked myself why but soon realised this much celebrated young man is blind.

He sat down in front of a piano and for the first 3 seconds he stared hard into the microphone as if he could see it, he spoke out and I was moved, he praised God for his life and all he has gotten, then he began singing, for the first 3 minutes  I was pinched and cold shivers ran down my spine, I cried for the young man who cannot see, but is so satisfied with life, Continue reading

“Examine yourself,watch yourself. Don’t be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses; be a winner, build yourself and your reality”

It is no joke that one of the fundamental problems humanity is faced with is the question of Identity. People grapple with this and after a little trail and error, the young chap submits him/herself to the voices around. After all, does it take a village to train a child?

Nations fight for independence, shouldn’t people as well? I remember an interesting story Deolu always told me.

As employees in a particular company arrived for work one morning, they saw a poster in the reception. The poster reads as follows: “yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in the company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the conference room that has been prepared for this purpose”.

At first the employees felt bad that one of their colleagues had died. when they taught about it further, they were sort of at least happy that at least whoever it was that was hindering their progress had been taken out of the way.

Curiosity gave in to excitement as the employees made their way to the conference room. The conference soon soon became rowdy and noisy; infact, security had to be beefed up to keep things under control.

Excitement gave way to anxiety, and the people became eager to know who it was that was responsible for their stagnation and the lack of progress. At least, he’s dead! Everybody wanted to be first in line to peep into the coffin Continue reading

The movie world is still recovering from the shock of the success of the Slumdog millionaire, a movie from the slums of Mumbai, India that centres on Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India’s “who wants to be a millionaire?” But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious encounter with local gangs, and of Lakita, the girl he loved and lost. Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the answer to one of the game show’s questions. But one question remains a mystery: what is this young man with no apparent desire for riches really doing on the game show?

When the new day dawns, and Jamal returns to answer the final question, the inspector and sixty million viewers are about to find out, at the heart of its storytelling lies the question of how anyone comes to know about life and love.Eighteen year old Jamal Malik is having an amazing answering streak on the Indian version of the television game show, “who wants to be a millionaire’. He is one correct question away from the big prize. However, some, including those associated with the game show, questions how someone like him, a self confessed non-genius who grew up in the slum can be doing so well on the show when others who are brighter, more educated and wealthier than him have failed. Is Jamal cheating? Is it purely luck?

This is a breathtaking story of a failure in the light of success, I once heard that the movie was first rejected by Paramount pictures on the grounds that it would not sell, Fox searchlight pictures and Warner Bros took the risk and now the movie has brooking the box office record, and was nominated for 10 Oscar awards winning 8 of them including best picture, best cinematography, best supporting actor award.

Lessons learnt;

1- Never be afraid of taking a risk- life is full of risk, there is no place you go to today that something good or bad happens, most people live in a risk free world, consciously avoiding taking risk, but they end up not achieving anything, just imagine if Paramount picture took the risk of selling this unusual movie, they would be smiling to the bank this hard times. See the good side of any opportunity. It may just be your tipping point.

2- Treasure experiences- Jamal, during the course of his life, had some experiences, good and bad, and a need to recall all these showed itself on the big day, in front of over 60 million people and with a carrot of  20 million rupees dangling, live today to its best as it may help you in future.

3- Never blame your environment- a street boy, described as non-ambitious is now in front of cameras in Hollywood. He never dreamt of it, but he has it now, where you are now does not matter, what does is how you utilize your today.

Well for you reading, you may spot out a lot other lessons you learnt, please feel free to drop your comment on lesson learnt and also learn from mine.

LAGOS..worst place to work in the world.(CNN)


I got into the office today and trying to settle in, my attention was caught by the news on television about Lagos. Once again, the name Nigeria has popped up under a negative premise, CNN today ranked Lagos, Nigeria as the worst place to work in the world. Closely followed by Jakarta in Indonesia, Rihad in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Mumbai in India.

Nigeria oh my Nigeria, today Nigeria garners another accolade, but this is not a good way to begin and not a good way to consolidate on the democracy that is still fresh and young. Nigeria is a third world country that is fast going into a first world and Lagos state under the governance of Fashola has seen a good a rapid growth in infrastructural development. There are good roads, security, good living and more, but how do you quantify good place to work? Mr. Poland Ebelt, the Managing director Nigeria Bottlers, makers of Coca Cola speaking live told the world that working in Lagos is not that bad, that the only difficulty is finding the right place to live that would offer all the basic social infrastructures that would promote good living.

Ebelt spoke well but despite his experience here in Nigeria, the presenter insinuated immediately that he might be making excuses for Nigeria Continue reading

Hi readers, how was your weekend? I had a very busy weekend, meetings and stuffs, I also had the opportunity of reading a magazine published by Deolu Akinyemi, “Recharge”, I had read it before and just needed to refresh myself with some good stuffs. I would share with you an article that is hilarious but also very enlightening; well the topic spells it out, CAN YOU MARRY POTENTIALS? Many of the young chicks out there would normally settle for a guy that is well to do, has a good job, a well furnished apartment, a flashy car, a well stocked wardrobe…and so on but hey is there any girl out there that would marry a guy who doesn’t have so much now but has potentials of getting more than all these in life.

 Door slams! She runs up to her room and another slam! Her mum in shock calls out to her daughter…..Mariah!

What is the matter? What’s the entire door slamming about?

 Mariah…mom I am sorry (quiet sobs). Continue reading
