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.

Last Sunday, we interviewed a very driven artiste. Who would have thought that his dream to become a Naval Officer in the Nigerian Navy would eventually give away for a life of global impact?
From Lagos to Cyprus and then to the rest of Europe, David Nkennor is indeed fulfilling destiny. IN our interview with him, He talks about his Naval Dreams, recording his first two albums, and where he is headed. I hope you enjoy it.
