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…

NEXT BIG THING: CREATING A NEW WORLD THROUGH MY LENS - KINGSLEY AGORUA

Jim Rohn had his opinion that "If you don't like where you, change it. You are not a tree." Kingsley Agorua had looked around where he found himself and decided to change it to suit his taste through his lens.

My earliest contact with Kingsley should have been in 2012 when I was a student at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri. I spotted him at an event on campus where he was taking photographs.

Little did I know that I would bump into him again at my faculty - The School of Health as a student. I was curious as to what a photographer was doing in my faculty during lecture period. Time will reveal that he was a student too who was madly in love with his camera. This was all before the advent of traditional or nearly compulsory bridal showers, baby showers and pre-wedding shoots in the Nigerian Creative Industry.


Kingsley Agorua is a cinematographer with years of experience from Oguta in Imo state. He studied Dental Technology at the Federal University of Techno…

Valentine for all times

"He just had to go", I yelled inside of me. Dele was too bossy and proud,the rest of the staff looked up to me to ensure he was fired. All I had to do was pull the manager into my seductive web and by morning, Dele would get his termination letter. Anyone who stood in my way always got burnt, I loved to revenge passionately and Dele was certainly not a sacred cow.

The subsequent monday was my birthday, I was hoping there would be a suprise cake or party for me but no soul even wished me a happy birthday. Work went on as every other normal day.
I bent to open my drawer then I saw a parcel with a note attached to it:

I boss you because I want you to be the boss
I have admired you since the day I knew you
Work has to get better but don't ever try to change you.
Lots of love
Dele.

I wept like a baby, that was the only gift I got that day.
Dele was not sacked and they are now proud parents of three kids.

Don't you just love to love? #winks.
Love everyone, everyday!
Happy…
