AWAKENING YOUR INNER EBUKA AND JAY-JAY OKOCHA


I am not a genius neither do I have a see-through eye but I figured out that you have an inner Ebuka Uchendu- Obi and Austin Azuka 'Jay Jay' Okocha. 

Hol' up! I am not about to take you on a Peak Milk's - It's in You road trip. I am just stating the obvious. The former is known for his mastery of the media scene as well as fashion sense while the latter is famous for his confidence with the ball, technique, creativity, and dribbling skills, as well as his use of feints.

We are a generation that idolises the now but forgets there was a past. 
I am a weird one. Perhaps it's one of the reasons why I like to read autobiographies, biographies and fact files. These two Nigerian giants rose from a point to get to the pinnacle where they are. 

Jay-Jay Okocha began playing football on the streets just like many other football stars. 

In an interview with BBC sports he said, “As far as I can remember, we used to play with anything, with any round thing we could find, and whenever we managed to get hold of a ball, that was a bonus! It was amazing!” 

In 1990, Okocha joined Enugu Rangers. This was the beginning of his football career. 

Ebuka was one of the 14 housemates on the first season of the popular reality show Big Brother Nigeria, finishing in eighth place.  To date, he is one of the most visibly successful BBN 2006 cast members. 

Since then, he is popularly known for hosting the reality show, Big Brother Naija, the long-running Rubbin Minds talk show on Channels Television as well as the co-host of the Spot and Men’s Corner on Ebonylife Television despite training as a lawyer. 


Apart from their killer smiles, one thing to observe is how effortless they do what they do. Doing what you do effortlessly with a smile is the most attractive thing you could decide to do. 

Take these mind stirring pills:
  • They work behind the scenes
  • They started from the cradle 
  • They are passionate about what they do to a fault 
  • They free themselves from distractions
  • They are resolute about their pursuit 
If there’s one type of person we admire, it’s the person who’s able to get things done without even trying. I mean that's what our minds make us believe - "they pull it off even without trying."
So the next time you see someone who displays such poise that makes you think he or she is naturally talented, consider that he could have just put in a lot of work to pull this off.
You can do what you do effortlessly too.

WHY I WON'T BE BUYING ANYTHING AGAIN FOR A LIFETIME

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one . 

“One of the enemies of  happiness is adaptation,” Thomas Gilovich reveals. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. B…

CHIOMA VANESSA : A FASHIONPRENEUR MOTIVATED BY PASSION AND CREATIVITY TO CHART A PATHWAY

Chioma was that child that will send you hiding your clothes and wrappers far away from her reach for the fear that she will tear them in shreds out of the zeal of designing and making clothes. Her first skirt was made at the age of twelve. 
"Nobody taught me to sew, nobody close to me sews, I didn't even know it was a 6 pieces skirt I sewed till I finally went to a fashion school," She says with an air of humour. 


"I also made bags and a pair of slippers from an old Jean material that happened to be my old skirt. My mum marveled at the thought of Jean slippers then but now we see Jean slippers everywhere." She continues. 
Chioma Vanessa who prefers to go by the alias 'God's favourite daughter' is a graduate of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, an entrepreneur and the present CEO of Nessa Design and Stitches (NDS). A young Fashion and Designing outfit that not only makes great outfits but also runs mini fashion tutorials.

I watched Fisayo click away on his camera between flashes of light. It was at an event about promoting Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).

I checked some boxes after our interaction. He is industrious, a supporter of social good and very efficient. Call me a stalker of amazing young people and you won't be far from the truth.

He is the Creative Director and creative mind behind Shot On Target Pictures.  He practically takes shots on the field and off the field as a photographer.
