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.


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.


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!
