PrePArE tO diTcH yOur InTeRNet ProviDER gOOgLe iS abOut to GiVe yOu FastEr iNternet!!

Alas! something exciting to blog about.
Forget your ISP or Mobile Data service provider!!! 
Google is about to change the way we receive & use the internet. It is this out of the box approach to challenges that has made Google a global leader in search technology. Though the company may not be perfect it has managed to innovate amidst stiff competition and anti trust restraints.

Enter The Loon Project. A balloon based internet distribution service that literary thrives on Balloons floating in the Earth's stratosphere which allows internet access even in remote terrains that are extremely difficult to reach. This concept is a beautiful blend of Meteorology, Physics, and Technology.

I saw this video of the technology behind this innovation and i thought i should share it. Yes i sound like a geek right now, it may have to do with the fact that before i settled into entertainment fully i had an Information Technology background. I believe strongly that this technology should interest even the least tech savvy individual. Please let me know your thoughts after you have seen this video:

tHE U.S is eQuaLLy iNePT at tHE wAR on tERoR!

Libyans on the Wall of the U.S Consulate in Benghazi, 2012

As it turns out, incompetence is not only in the Nigerian governments DNA this trait is also shared by the U.S government to a great extent. The only difference is the U.S government may be just slightly better at PR or not! 
Two fox investigative reporters (Bret Baier and James Rosen) recently revealed in a report that the American Government and its State Department knew exactly what was happening at the U.S Embassy in Libya while it was under attack, but did nothing like our President (GEJ) did when the Chibok girls were kidnapped. Even shocking is the fact that the Terrorists communicated using U.S State department issue phones. To make matters even worse these calls were heard by multiple U.S spy agencies. It is not only the Nigerian government that has lost its military gear to Boko Haram insurgents, the Americans are only better at covering their losses to insurgents up. Did i hear you call the U.S government experts at fighting terror?

In the last couple of months Nigerians and even foreign governments have hinted at how corrupt and incompetent our government and our military is. Even though these allegations may be true it doesn't change the fact that the war on terror is waged world over against a faceless(forget the videos) enemy. From Kenya to India, From Newyork to Chibok, it has been made clear to all that Man can and will never be Omniscient irrespective of the amount of technology at our disposal.

The attack on the U.S Embassy in Libya that claimed the Life of the Ambassador and some of his staff and the consistent attack by Boko Haram insurgents on Nigerians has proven to us that even the technology used by our governments to protect life can be used by these Terrorists to destroy our way of Life. As we have come to realise no man is immune from Terror so while we all insult GEJ and his army of inept advisers we should all remember that at the end of the day it is we the citizens that have to face this insurgents, it is the citizens that gets killed, it is also citizens that get drafted to the military to be slaughtered by this people. so at the end of the day our safety is in God's hands and we should also be wise enough to put personal measures in place to protect our own lives.

The government doesn't really care about you, they only care about the narrative in the media as evidenced from the recent clamp down on various media houses in Nigeria. Lets face it we generate our own power, jobs, water, provide our food, shelter, roads etc. it shouldn't be too hard to provide our security. So what exactly do we need the government for since we have become so self sufficient as a nation. The goevernment probably realizes this so there is very little for people in government to do but collect our taxes and embezzle public funds.
Take consolation in this simple fact, that God always has a better agenda. No matter how many politicians gather to make political calculations on how to take over government NO MAN know better than God. And while we wait on he we all should do our part to contribute to the peace and growth of our Nation.
Have a beautiful day (June 12).

LeTs sHow yOu iK's sPiritUaLity

its been quite an experience for me producing what is fast becoming the best gospel radio show in Nigeria. For some reason doing this for God just fills me with unquantifiable joy not just because of the followership our show has built in less than a year but the impact the show has had on lives and i am eternally grateful to God for birthing this through me. If you have been following our social handles (Twitter/facebook: @holyholla ; Instagram/G+: HolyHollaRadio ) you would have noticed we have been very busy and the various podcasts below are a testament to that fact. 

Yesterday on the HolyHolla show hosted by IK Osakioduwa (filling in for Arthur) and myself had a blast on air with Phrance, an upcoming alternative rock artiste. See podcast below. This week however we are hosting a special edition of HolyHolla tagged: Minister in the Market Place Special #MITMPS. It is our attempt to celebrate individuals who are bringing God to the consciouness of people in their professional sphere on contact. Coincidentally IK Osakioduwa is our first guest in this special and we look forward to this weekend. Please save the flier as a reminder this sunday by 8:00am GMT+1. Have a beautiful week!
