“Photography 101:Mystery”


The shot of place that look like it had seen war or tribal clash. This is the major road leading to Jos. It is one of the highway side market where people pack to buy food stuffs.ย  At the footage of the post, there is potato displayed for sale without the seller. Thought on a Sunday,this was my observation in so many spots along this road. The mystery of leaving good displayed without anybody manning it, but that could not be in so many other part of Nigeria especially in the south.

When we talk of character building experience, it has to do with leadership development and the best of model of communual excellence worthy of emulation. There is a man that stand out among other men. A man of excellence, an uncommon transformer delievering uncommon transformation. He is Chief Godswill Obodo Akpabio.

I feel like this is a man I’ll trust any day any time. I feel like this a man that has deliever beyound expectation. A man, if requsire my vote, I’ll wholeheartedly give. He’s a man with midal touch. A very large man.

You may wonder why this acolades? It’s simply because, the man deliever on almost all his promises. I am a yoruba man from western part of Nigeria, but I know what good governance is. And I can say that the man has done so well. The kind of development he brought to his people within two terms of four years is amazing because of his drive and his comittment to positive developmental change. All hail one of the best around.

“Writing 101, Day Four: Serial Killer”

It is amazing how time flies. We all know money could be recouped but time lost, definately could not be regained. If lost, gone forever. Life has a way of dealing with each and everyone of us in a diffferent way. Biblically, one would not say father Abraham waisted his time. Far from it. He had to wait working patiently to connect to the promise. Which took a while to materialise.

What can we say of today? We all strive, no matter how smartly or otherwise. If it’s not yet your time, you may need extra grace of patience to keep yourself going in the same direction. Certainly you must be aware of the fact that the path is promising but if for any reason you feel otherwise, then you need to reapraise the possibility of making success of that endeavor.

That is why one has to be objective at all time and be open to new possibilities. Most of the bloggers and writer are motivators but it’s not as if they don’t have challenge. But they simple hold on till the time things get better. And that’s what we keep saying that things would definately change for better with time. Happy blogging.  

“Writing 101, Day Three:Commit to a Writing Prectice”

All my life, I am a musical freak and the kind of music I hear are in different genre and my mood determine what I listened to per time. I like wide variety of music. So it will be too limiting for me just mentioning three. To be honest! I wouldn’t know what precisely to pick. Be that as it may, I will settle for twist but still write about music in my life.


No hold barred? Cool with me though it may happen that some stupid mistake will show up. Please bear with me. Am trying to follow the rule to let loose. Let’s get historical, I can’t know precisely when I came up to know what music is, but I just grew up into it . Not because I came from that background but I know my grandfather was a man that sing leisurely. Being quite close to him, I just had to pick the trait.

I took after him in that area till date. In the days of LP Records before cassette tapes , children of my ages gather everywhere there is barber’s shop because that time the barbers also sell records. I remember I only have to listen to new releases once or twice before having up my head and continue to sings the whole LP. This earned me a nickname called “tatalo si gbegiri anan” means add fresh pepper to yesterday beans soup. Let’s respect the rule, 15 minutes up.

Happy blogging challenge.

“Blogging U 101 Challenge”

Its starting again as usual and typical of wordpress. I wonder if the team don’t sleep or rest. Where and how do they get the steam and energy to be so forthcoming. Well since am becoming neck deep into this locomotion! I will strive to roll along on top of the wheel that keep zooming like supersonic jet. We have a saying here that when the leaf stick to the soap for long, it become soap.

Many times when I excitedly tell some egg head around me how fullfiling blog life could be. The question some ask is have you been making money with it?, do I care? If and when it comes fine. What I care about is how to nurture the relationship that comes my way via the blog platfom on daily basis, and the true friendship expressed by both powerful and the up and coming bloggers like myself. It is so sweet to know I belong globally and I am not and will never be limited in any area of my life again. What a wonderful feeling of belonging to community on the move.

What could I add more to this than to say kudos to the drivers of this engine for their unrelented  effort and drive to keep me from snoring believing that it will be hot pursuit of words in the next 30 day. But come to think of it! Where is the extra time over 20 min. for editing. The time we normally called injury time? Am hanging off. Cheers.
