National theatre

You know what, I probably expected too much from our leaders. People that couldn't maintain cash cows like refineries, are expected to see value propositions in the national theater?

Dubai Opera


I met one of the guys, Parkinson, who went to Dubai to work on sounds in the new #DubaiOperaHouse... Here in London. And he said he has been in Dubai for the past 14 months... Working with a consortium on the acoustics of the halls. He showed me some pictures and told me he would be relocating to Dubai, from the Royal School of Music... And I thought to my self, we had the National theatre before they even started developing Dubai.

January 1st Concert


The planning for another New Year Celebrations #alibabasjanuary1stconcert is in full effect. Opening acts, select acts, special acts, popular demand and the Closing Act!...are all being discussed now. So tell me. Who do you want to party with on #january1st at the #january1stconcert at EKO Hotel? What artistes are you keen on seeing on stage. This edition will feature fewer artistes, but trust me, you will get your money's worth. Who deserves the N1m for graduating with a 1st Class in 2016? Who should get a #Zakilo for being the first person to do anything that no one else had done in Nigeria before they did it? Who are the female singers with the most blessed voices in Nigeria? That can make MARIA Carey and Whitney Houston say "that's Ma gurl"?!!! Who goes home with the brand new #Spontaneity car amongst all the comedians contesting on #January1st at the EKO Hotel.

Be Careful who you confide in


In the last two days, I have listened to audio recordings of a woman who had taken venting to a different level. It made me reflect deeply on somethings that we take for granted. Trust. Friendship. Honesty. Self respect. Moral values. Relationships.

Dubai



That was DUBAI in 1999 and in 2008... No need to spoil your evening with the picture of 2016... And all they had was oil. They did not even have a culture like us. They did not have land. They reclaimed from the sea. They did not have limestones, bitumen, granite, steel, rubber and so on. They did not even have people. They invited people to come build it. We had more than oil. They had only oil and the desert. They are not Christians. They don't have TOTAL EXPERIENCE, HOLY GHOST SERVICE, SHALOM, EXPERIENCE 4.0.... Naddddaaaa! We dey here dey fool ourselves. Even the people saying I should not have said Jesus can't save Nigeria now, go see their pages. They post nudity and use profanity some worship in churches where the pastor drives a bullet proof RANGE ROVER, yet you have members of the congregation that can not afford jamb forms or pay school fees! Na curse I go dey curse all of una like Jesus curse the fig tree. Awon alayi ni nkon Shey be calling Jesus' name in vain! Taaaaaaaaarh!!

Life is Simple!!!


Life is simple... Relate with everybody. Cut ogf toxic people. Celebrate success anywhere by anyone. Be happy. Learn the things that make people successful. Don't make people's goals yours, create yours. Don't be jealous of people's achievements, let it inspire you.

Sofia Vergara


How many state governments earn that in 12 months? This is one person oooo! And I am not talking of the money they collect from Federal Allocation. I mean internally generated revenue, IGR! How many? Yet they are looking for how to drill for oil in the north.

Forbes!!!

The word most powerful as used by Forbes does not necessarily mean physical strength or fiscal potentials... It also means influential. How many people you can impact your knowledge on... There are people who today may be doing well as comedians that I don't know, or have never met, and they will tell you that they found their feet in the comedy industry harnessing their talents and honing their craft by using some of my jokes. Some established ones who are not shy to say will tell you that they have called me several times to ask, what jokes do you think can break this kind of audience. Sometimes, it's about how many platforms you can create for the people to fashion a life for themselves. It doesn't necessarily mean it is cash. I am posting this, because after I posted the story of the young man who came to me through his mother, I got several Direct messages saying I did not do well with the guy. That I had lost an opportunity to make a difference in his life. One even said I should have asked him if he had money problems. That maybe that is why he was not "together". Oh yes, I nearly forgot, one said I talk like I was not a youth before.... You see, money is important ooo. But not when you don't have the training to get it, invest it, save it or spend it. If money is a tool it is good. If you make it a goal, the penalties can be way over the bar!

Learn to let go!!!


Learn to let go!!!!!! If it did not work for you, all that "he used to"... "She used to"... "We were supposed to" is not necessary. Move on. I often don't get ladies who try to discourage another lady from dating a guy because "he toasted me and I said no".

Upbringing


The mind and what it thinks, is a function of our upbringing, our observations, our education, interactions, aspirations, inspirations and consequence of all that processed information. That is why it's not what goeth into us that messes up...

The Wedding Party


Watch Trailer



Divine Oduduru


While some are waiting for Federal Government to come and put food on their tables, @divinerun aka "Let's Leave it in the hands of God" has taken things into his hands to teach us all that greatness can come from anywhere. He ran against @usainbolt. Even if he came last, and he did not, he has achieved something. But guess what, people like him don't get mentioned in our daily conversations. He can not trend. Has he impregnated anyone? Was he caught for rape? Did he fight with anyone? What we need to do is to make this kind of stories from #Ovwor#Olomu#Ughelli #DeltaState... become an inspiration to some who think going to burst pipelines and blow up oil installations is the only way to get attention. Guess what? This guy is representing all of us. Let's show him love. Follow @divinerun let's appreciate his good runs for our country.... Go look at his pictures. 12 likes. 32 likes... But if a babe shows cleavage... 5000 likes. One guy will wear only briefs... 10,000 likes... But this one? Naaaaa

Lessons from Usain Bolt


LESSONS!!! 1. What you know how to do can not be taken away from you if you don't stop KNOWING HOW TO DO IT. 2. The reason people stop being known for what they do is because they stopped knowing how to do it. 3. Knowing how... Includes how to do it better, what to do to be better, where it can be shown that you are better, when you should show that you are better, what to focus on... 4. When you are the best you will be miles ahead of the pack. 5. Your strides will be effortless even when people are bursting their veins to be better than their peers to be 2nd best. 6. Be steps ahead. Learn to have advantage even if all things are equal. 7. People can have the same tools as you, start the same time as you, but let your preparation, training and better use of ideas pull you ahead. 8. People who tell you to slow down are not as fast as you are. Let them catch up 9. Don't wait till the day you are needed to prove your worth, to be the best. Be the best before you are called upon to do so. 10. When you are the best, you bring out the best in others. Because they will be striving to catch up with you and outdo others. 11. When you are ahead of the pack, that is when you can steal a glance. Don't steal a glance when you are still in a tight competition, you may get intimidated or worse while you are stealing a glance your competition is looking ahead. Do it when you are clear of distraction. Delayed gratification. 12. No one will let you be the best. They will trump you if you slip and fall. They will not stop to ask for a rerun. They will claim the best position. 13. Go ask @lewishamilton, he believes if you see people tail lights you are not ahead of them. 14. You may be in the same team. Wear the same spikes. Be the same in many ways. But it's the you in you that will make the difference. The Racket doesn't win the match. Because your opponent can use the same racket yet you beat the opponent. Look at #usainbolt's face... Kind of like saying, "You think you can beat me by wearing the same running shoes? No maaaan. You Kiant dig it!!"
