ArCHiteCtuRe iN NiGeRia

I have often wondered why our local architects are too guarded in their renditions. There is just something in this country (Nigeria) that makes them play it safe in their designs. One can hardly be wowed on a drive across Lagos.

Perhaps it's the state of the Nation finding subtle expressions in their work, or perhaps it is the innate need to keep construction costs down, who knows..

NeVEr giVE uP..

Some history here.. Actor Robert Deniro was a cab driver circa 1976.

Just because things ain't working out the way you expect doesn't mean your dreams are impossible. Keep pushing, your dreams are only a starting point for God.

By aNy mEaNs nEceSsaRy

In 2007 when I took a dive into the uncertainty of entrepreneurship, I was certain within in a few years I would become extremely successful within. 

I thought I had the temperament and 'ballz' on lock. As time went on I began to evolve into social circles beyond my tax bracket without the necessary account balance to match such relationships or 'Lagos Friendships' as we call it. 

It soon began to dawn on me that while I aspired to building a successful business, I had unconsciously began to compare and hold myself to the standards of my fellow young millionaire friends who by all accounts were living the life. 
I soon realized I was doing myself a huge de-service as it became more apparent that with some of these guys things were never what they seemed. I may not be where I ought to be yet, but I am definitely not where I used to be and I thank God for that.

Thing is, before you begin to envy your peers and wish you were them, stop and consider for a minute if you can take the kind of risks they take. The Nigerian society is too perception driven and we all tend to draw inspiration from any semblance of success we can see. 

The next time you read about a young successful person like a Linda Ikeji, or a Daniel Kanu, don't just consider the naira or dollar signs or the flamboyant life styles they have come into, but also the risks they take on a daily basis and what they stand to lose if eventually their true leverage (which most successful people are never quick to reveal) become public knowledge. Things are never what they seem. I realize that some of us have suffered too much to see anything wrong in the 'by any means neccesary' approach to wealth creation, but please understand that I'll gotten wealth never lasts.

eMpeRoR of SoUNd

I guess when you have successfully made a career out of your passion and made a tonne of money while at it, you become extremely qualified to publish a book on success while also entertaining your readers. Thats what Timbaland's new book "Emperor of Sound" is about.

In The Emperor of Sound, Timbaland offers fans an unprecedented look into his life and work. Completely uncensored and totally honest, he reveals the magic behind the music, sharing the various creative impulses that arise while he’s producing, and the layering of sounds that have created dozens of number one hits. Cinematically written, full of revealing anecdotes and reflections from today’s most popular music icons, The Emperor of Sound showcases this master’s artistry and offers an extraordinary glimpse inside this great musical mind.

Buhari, Boko Haram & Biafra

A wise man once said: “ walk a mile in my shoes, see what I see, hear what I hear and feel what I feel. Then maybe you'll understand why I do what I do”

All of a sudden the former Nigerian President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan doesn't seem so clueless after all. More than 6months into the new government we seem worse off as a people: while Boko Haram may have lost ground in the North East, sadly they have opted for more deadly lone wolf attacks. Simultaneously the Biafra protests (which in my opinion is an effort in futility) are gradually festering and looking like another powder keg waiting to explode. All sorts of neglected vested interests ( all in the name of the Change agenda) are in subtle revolt about their neglect by the new government.

As things stand the GEJ led Gov't may have been 'the most corrupt' administration in Nigeria's history as has been claimed but he sure as hell had a clear sense of direction with his government even though he couldn't adequately articulate his intentions. 

After all the promises made during the elections I'm  glad the current ruling party is gradually learning the hard lesson that National leadership is beyond just political rhetorics but more about balancing your desired goals with general public expectation and sentiments.

wHeRe hAve i bEEn?

Lately I have been pre-occupied with expanding the reach of my other brands like HolyHolla and Swagcraft Media, and i have hardly had the chance put up posts on my personal space. I have also received 'DoGD' requests from my friends and some people i didn't even know read my posts on here, well i guess you never know who is reading or listening. 
In the past few months we have successfully designed and implemented a very dynamic platform on our christian entertainment and lifestyle platform holyholla. Holyholla which started out as a Sunday morning 4-hour life radio show and has since evolved to include the website portal - feel free to check it out.

Finally I hope to write more on my series 'Diary of a Google dad(DoGD)' my journey as a new parent without 'elderly guidance' (a cultural thing in Nigeria where Parents are involved in helping their children become better parents) on parenting but Google as an unending source of wisdom has come in quite handy. With respect to the tragedy of terror around the world in recent times and in Nigeria, I pray that God comforts the friends, Families of all who have lost their lives to these senseless extremist ideologies.

C.Ronaldo HoMeLeSS! - Lessons from his Experience

I saw this video that was only uploaded 4days ago on Youtube about Cristiano Ronaldo (Millionaire footballer with real madrid) playing homeless. This video got me thinking about how we as humans are ruled by perception. After spending hours on a Spanish street playing a homeless and skillful footballer, people watched from a distance. Only one little kid named Nicholas spent time playing with him. To appreciate the kid, Ronaldo autographed the ball for Nicolas and revealed himself, only then did the people who initially kept their distance become star struck and get close.

This says a lot about our humanity. Watch the video here:

gOiNg aGaiNsT tHe tiDE!

This tweet from Tera Carissa got me in deep thought about what it truly takes to be an achiever. In reality nobody ever achieved any great feat by doing exactly what every other person around them did. Over the years i have come to one solid conclusion that the common denominator in every winner's life is simply an 'EDGE'. My  childhood gaming days comes to mind as a good example of what it means to have an edge. Back when the video game 'Street Fighter' was a thing i only knew how to use two moves  and one player (Dhalsim) in all my games. He was the grown Avatar looking dude who could Extend punches and kicks beyond his reach, teleport and stay suspended in the air. All i knew to do was throw those long punches and teleport, and i became so good and fast at those two moves that was all i really needed to win.

The story referenced in the tweet above covers the story of a blind man in Jericho named Bartimaeus who during Jesus' visit against all odds and public opinion regained his sight. We only read about him today because he was bold enough to do something about his situation howbeit yelling like a mad man on the streets.
There are 3 things Bartimaeus had that made a difference to his situation which we can also learn from:

1. Information: He had heard of the exploits and knew of the power Jesus carried. He also heard that Jesus was in town, he also recognized the opportunity of a life time.

2. Faith/Conviction: Armed with this information, He was convinced that an encounter with this Jesus would solve his problems. In an era when Miracles and Christ was considered uncool he wasn't ashamed of his Faith and conviction.

3. Tenacity: Against all odds and pressure to be quiet while he called for Jesus to save him he persisted until Jesus heard him and called for him to come close after which he miraculously re-gained his sight.

These three (3) things can be generally summarized in one word: PASSION. what dreams, ideas or courses do you feel driven to achieve? what challenges do you have to contend with on a daily basis?
The story of blind Bartimaeus teaches us that in the choir of life, only people bold enough to sing solos get the chance get noticed..
In the history of humanity, every great man from Einstein to Walt Disney; from Steve Jobs to Mark Zuckerberg; has had to swim against the tide of popular opinion to attain greatness. whatever you find yourself doing sometimes the best path to that destination is the road less travelled.

NiKKiLaOYE oN hOLyHoLLA Ep.#92- 19th JuLy 2015

This week we had the rare privilege to chat with the beautiful singer and dancer- NikkiLaoye. This very sweet and fun lady shared insights about her life, music, childhood, performing with artistes she idolized growing up(listen to find out which) and her Angel4life foundation. One of the things that really struck me was her out of the 'gospel genre' box approach to spreading the gospel.

There is absolutely no doubt that we live in perilous times where just as scriptures foretold, our creed is increasing becoming un-cool thanks in part to the passive approach to spreading the gospel by the christian community. Over decades we may have succeeded in alienating potential believers with our tactless and judgmental approach to spreading the gospel. Even the bibles states that he that winneth souls is wise meaning that a great part of spreading the gospel requires tact. I hope you download and enjoy this engaging interview. Also please leave a comment below after listening.

How Difficulty Can Make You Better, Not Bitter
Life is not fair. You will have problems, difficulties, and hurts that will make you better or bitter. You will either grow up or give up. You’ll either become who God wants you to be or your heart will become hard. You have to decide how you are going to respond to the tough times in your life. How will you handle it?
When you go through those difficult times, what happens to you is not nearly as important as what happens in you. That’s what you take into eternity — not the circumstances but your character.
In Acts 27, we learn three ways you shouldn’t respond:
1. Don’t drift. “The ship was caught by the storm and could not head into the wind; so we gave way to it and were driven along” (Acts 27:15 NIV). The ship carrying Paul and other prisoners to Rome was in the middle of the Mediterranean and hadn’t seen the sun for 14 days, so they couldn’t get any bearings, and they started to drift.
When they face difficulty, some people start drifting through life. They have no goal, purpose, ambition, or dream for their life. Today, we call this “coasting.” The problem with coasting is that you’re headed downhill. Life is not a coast. Life’s tough. Don’t lose your ambition or your dream just because life gets hard.

2. Don’t discard. “We took such a violent battering from the storm that the next day they began to throw the cargo overboard” (Acts 27:18). The men in charge needed to lighten the ship, so they threw the cargo overboard, then the tackle and the food. They were discarding things they needed because the storm was so tough.
When you get in a storm and the stress gets unbearable, you tend to start abandoning values and relationships you would not let go of in better times. You say, “I’m giving up on my marriage. I’m giving up on my dream to go to college.”
God says, “Stay with the ship!” Have you done that in your marriage? Have you said, “Divorce is not an option for us. We’re going to make it work.” If you haven’t, you’ll always be tempted to walk out. If you don’t throw away the key, you’ll never develop the character God wants you to have. God can change situations and personalities. He can change you. But he won’t if you’re always abandoning ship! I’ve learned from personal experience that it is never God’s will to run from a difficult situation. God wants you to learn, grow, and develop. Stick with it.

3. Don’t despair. “We finally gave up all hope of being saved” (Acts 27:20). After 14 days in total darkness and after giving up their cargo, tackle, and food, the passengers finally give up hope. But they’d forgotten one thing: Even in a storm, God is in control. He hasn’t left you. You may not feel him, but if you feel far from God, guess who moved?
God is with you in the storm, and he’ll help you through it.

Finally, Daniel’s wisdom also made him a man of great forbearance. He was amazingly tolerant in the biblical sense of the word.

Rightly understood, tolerance is a trait we should all excel in. If tolerance means granting people the right to be wrong, we of all people ought to be known for our tolerance.
Unfortunately, that’s not what tolerance means today. The word has been redefined. It no longer means granting others the right to be wrong. It now means that nobody is wrong. Those who dare to claim that some behaviors are actually morally wrong are written off as intolerant bigots.
While many of us bemoan the intolerance directed toward Bible-believing Christians today, we have no one to blame but ourselves. We’re getting what we gave.
Back when Christianity was the dominant cultural religion, we often used our power to shut down those who advocated opposing agendas. We’d raise a fuss and force a college to disinvite a commencement speaker who advocated a godless agenda. We’d pressure sponsors to stop advertising on television shows we didn’t like. We’d boycott non-Christian companies for making non-Christian decisions.
Now we’re on the receiving end. As I write this, a TV show has recently been canceled because of the evangelical leanings of the host. A pastor has been disinvited from praying at the presidential inauguration because he had the audacity to teach what the Bible says about sexuality. And a national chain is under fire because the owners have donated to ballot measures considered antigay.
I often wonder what would have happened if we’d had the wisdom of Daniel when we were in control. What if we’d been tolerant in the biblical sense of the word? What if, rather than trying to silence those we strongly disagreed with, we’d let them have their say, secure in the knowledge that truth has nothing to fear?
My bet is we’d still be out of favor. But we’d have a far more level playing field from which to speak to the sins and issues of our day.
It’s a mistake Daniel never made. He let pagans live like pagans, while living his own godly life in full view. Which is why when the time came for him to step forward and speak up, he’d already earned the right to be heard.
*Are you tolerant in the Biblical sense of the word?

Only tHe CrAzieS wiN..

..5,4,3,2,1 annnnnnnnnd blast off!!! 
The voice of the Mission Control Commander went off on the comms system at SpaceX Headquarters on a re-supply mission to the International Space Station; a contract seeded to SpaceX by NASA. To think that it all started with a relatively insignificant game called 'Blastar' designed by Elon Musk at age 12 which was purchased by a computer magazine for exactly $500.

The name Elon Musk would ring a bell especially for his input in the creation of great brands like TESLA, SpaceX, Paypal, SolarCity and more.. Originally from South Africa, This real life  'Tony Stark/Iron Man' is one of the very few individuals in addition to others like Richard Branson, Aliko Dangote and more who don't mind being called CRAZY. If i asked you to make a mental note of 5 global companies behind 5 successful earth shattering feats, businesses like Apple, twitter and co. will come to mind. But one common denominator with such great ventures is the Courage and Passion of the brains behind them.

Daring to even dream about the impossible and then convincing a world of pessimists is no small feat, especially in a world where there is an unwritten script about how life ought to be lived i.e Go to school, get a job, get Married etc.. Surely if we are all headed in the same scripted direction how is it even possible for one to stand out or even make a global impact?

In my opinion, there is a reason the best technological and global advancements have come from the craziest humans to walk the earth like Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Einstein, and more, It is that innate ability and drive to constantly go against the tide of conformity. Just because the world accepts something doesn't make it the only way or even the correct way at that. There is always room for improvement and only people who can find the courage to chase down and surpass their dreams will make a global impact. You are the best Original of yourself, don't rob the world of that gift deposited you by God.

#doiT: bE tHe aRchitEct oF yOur oWn OppORtuNitieS.

A few days ago I read a piece on Anderson Cooper's rise to fame, and I found the revelations in there particularly inspiring. In it he talked about how not having a 'Plan B' was his secret to media success. When nobody would give him a chance at being a correspondent, he borrowed a home camcorder from a friend and with the little he had he embarked on trips to cover troubled developing countries like Somalia only to sell his stories to media outfits in the U.S. He would later get hired as an Intl. correspondent by 'Channel One' as a result of his efforts (Lesson: Sometimes getting people to trust you requires you changing their perception of you. Doing that requires drastic efforts on your part). This all or nothing approach to life especially when caught between a rock and hard place may be counter intuitive for some but in my opinion the most ingenious and creative solutions to challenges have been produced by men who have been backed into a corner without a backup plan.

The world is saturated with people who often let their degrees, environment or circumstances dictate who they become. In an increasingly difficult world where even having a PHD doesn't guarantee a job, only a few wake up to the realization that you are a sum of the choices you make and that we as individuals have to create our own opportunities in life. There will always be more than one way into a market. 
what is it you want so bad that the so called professionals of your industry won't let you in on? or what is that thing you dream about so much that the nay sayers have given you absolutely no chance of attaining? I say we (Yeah I said we, 'cos just like you I'm trying to get up that ladder)use their pessimism as fuel to attain the unattainable. People can only make you feel bad about yourself, your ideas or convictions if you let them. 

So share less with perssimists and be the architect of your opportunities. Because humans are mostly perception driven most will only believe when you have attained that goal/dream.

kiLLiNG boKo HaRam (ViDeo pERspectiVe on tHe BH War)

- Video Report as reported by an Embedded Intl. Journalist

For quite some time, I have been a fan of the VICE NEWS style of reporting, this backpack journalism style of covering stories around the world is a breath of fresh air in a world dominated by Big media corporations with vested interests and Big Gov't talons in them.

I came across a 3-part series of videos from Vice News as reported by Kaj Larsen of Vice. 
Kaj embedded with troops who would later recapture certain Northern Nigerian towns earlier seized by Boko Haram. This video puts the Nigerian War on terror in real perspective.

Finally after watching all 3 parts certain statements stood out for me from Kajs' interviews with citizens and Military personnel and i have shared them in six quotes below:

  1. "If you are a Muslim you are a target, If you are Christian you are also a target" - (Soldier on what Boko Haram truly is).
  2. "Wherever there is a crowd thats their target"- (Father of a Northern Youth Killed in a Bomb blast by Boko Haram)
  3. "I slaughter Boko Haram with this knife,.. when  I get them I slaughter them" - Nigerian Soldier
  4. "Our job here is to kill Boko Haram, Kill Boko Haram thats the only thing i know"
  5. "I am feeling very f&*king alone in the lead Gunship"- Kaj Larsen while on an embed flight on a Boko Haram bombing raid with the Nigerian Airforce.
  6. "Despite the success of his soldiers, Nigerian President, Goodluck's luck ran out" - Kaj Larsen, while reviewing the success of the Military campaign against Boko Haram.
Please watch the videos below and say a prayer for our troops.

#OSCARS2015 accOrdiNg to mY fiNgerS..

I found #Oscar night, or Oscar morning as i would like to call it in Nigeria particularly interesting. The Best part for me has to be that performance of popularly tunes from the classic movie 'Sound of Music' by Lady Gaga (see video below) and seeing Julie Andrews (Maria) at the Oscars. I never would have thought i'd make that last statement especially since the subject is someone i havent had much respect for until 3 weeks ago when i watched her perform at the Grammys and then at the Oscars 2015 today. Also John Legend and Common won an Oscar for Glory, Soundtrack for Selma.Over all the Production of the show was fantastic, Live music was indeed breath taking. See a list of the winners and my tweets during the show below.

#diARyofaGoOgleDad - #4 [We have teeth!!!]

Ladies & gentle men we have TEETH! 
well 3 tiny little ones.

As i write this piece the little man- Excuse me! 'The Emperor' has been speeding around the house like a reckless driver in his stroller why? I will get to that bit later..

Its been seven (7) months of parenting adventure with this little man, and from my end in all this time i may have succeeded in instilling my 'daredevilicity' in my if thats even a thing.
In my last post #diARyofaGoOgleDad- #3 (The Learners!) i left off at the hospital, a lot has changed since then as one would expect, and unfortunately i haven't had the luxury of time to write about it but i will try now to summarize my 7mnths in the next paragraph.

So in 7months, i.e. about 850 diappers, 7 big jars of Aptamil formula, and probably thousands of mililitres of breast milk later this young man has become an unstoppable ball of 
This hasn't come as a surprise to me however we saw signs months ago that he seemed to do things ahead of his time a good example would be his circumcision, yeah that was done way ahead of the 7 days and he handled that pretty well, then the vaccines.. The young man quickly became aware every time we walked into either of our hospitals and placed him on the exam bed that it was time to get pricked. 
He has also displayed certain fears like the fear of blenders and drilling machines (cos we moved recently)... The sound just terrifies him. We didn't realize he was terrified by grinding noises until we noticed how tight he clings and lets go when these machines come on and go off. So to help him every time his mom worked the blender, i would carry him close enough to it so he would see where the noise was from and possibly make him touch it when it was turned off to help him over come the fear. 
Finally in the 7months he has become so addicted to be being thrown in the air that these days he makes me feel like thats all i'm really good for i.e. throwing him in the air. He is always quick to stretch out his arms to me so i can throw him, hence the term 'daredevilicity' which i used earlier- simply put the boy has lost his fear of heights and free

The last 3months have been about teething- constant drooling and 'ikanra' along with plenty of Pican teething syrup.  The constant itching of his gum and chewing of every thing in sight is just hard to keep up with, lets just say one of the remote controls in the house didn't make it out of his teething phase alive. 
A while back we started feeding him mashed solids [potatoes, bananas etc.] bit by bit and today for the first time he had Amala and Ewedu, one meal i personally can't stand but my son 'fell my hand' today when his mom fed him Amala, i was half expecting him to turn away in disgust but what did he do? He licked his lips every time like he just discovered the secret to human Which brings me back to his Speeding in the stroller, which i saw him do for the first time today all cos someone tasted Amala, i tried to make a little video of the little 'Amala Bandit' but he was like little Flash leaving glowing amala streaks..LMAO. 

So now I'm thinking maybe the next time we try to feed him Amala we just might need some LASTMA officials at the house...

sometimes we go through challenges that may seem too much for us. What we may not realize at the point of the challenge is that we go through them not just for us but for others whom we may be in a position to see through similar situations in future. That which is bitter to endure might be sweet to remember, whatever the situation or challenge take consolation in the fact that God will not allow you to be tempted more than you are able to handle.. #inspiration #motivation #Spiritual #staypositive

HoLyHoLLa PLuGGedin cONceRt.

First let me wish you all a Happy New Year. My colleagues and I have been busy in the last 2weeks. Last weekend we had the rare privilege of playing host to the secular & gospel community at our Pluggedin concert which held on Saturday the 3rd of January 2015 at the Silverbird Galleria. For those who missed it, I have uploaded 48 pictures for your viewing pleasure. Let me know your thoughts in the comment boxes. You can also watch the concert at the following youtube channel-
