WHY WERE YOU INVITED TO THAT PARTY?

People get invited to parties because of all kinds of reasons

The first set of invitees, are people who must by virtue of their relationship with celebrants be invited to the party. These ones are as constant as the Northern star!

There are however some special breed of invitees.

Those who get invited because they are confirmed celebrities so the people throwing the parties can say with a sense of pride; Rita Dominic was there, Genevieve was there.

PLAN YOUR 2018


This year was very tough for me but as I am getting to the end of the year,  I have this incredible peace that only God can give.

This peace came because I took everything that has been happening to me and began to deal and settle with the issues one after the other.

LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDARY

Nobody believed her that she met the King’s son. Until that day at the wedding. The difference was glaring. On one side was her husband’s people; royalty. They exuded wealth and the confidence that wealth brings with it. they were also more than her people. The wealthy usually have a lot of friends.

Sitting behind her were her people. Most of them were villagers and looked it and those who were not were like the normal people you meet on the road. She did not want to look at the horrible accessories they wore on their aso ebi.

The Prince had seen her in the supermarket where she was a part time sales girl. Because of her poor financial state, everything around her was part time. She was a part time student of Unijos. She was also learning sewing part time. She and her friends call themselves ‘body and soul.’

‘I WAS CONFIDENT IN THE QUALITY OF MY ENTRY’ SAYS IKEOGU OKE, THE 2017 NLNG AWARD WINNER WITH HIS POETRY COLLECTION TITLED ‘THE HERESAID’

Congratulations for being the latest NLNG Laureate. Now tell me about the award-winning book

The book, The Heresiad, is an epic. It is in an adaptation of heroic couplets I call lyrical pentameters.


I also call it operatic poetry because it is primed for adoption or adaptation for the operatic stage considering its being also a musical and dramatic work.

MAKING AN IMPACT (1)



In my forthcoming book, must have book EVEN WITH TALENT,  Fela Durotoye husband of TARA the make up queen was quoted to have said;

If my wife is successful then I am successful, because behind every successful woman there must be a man. Again, as a consultant, it only helps me to know how good I am at my job since I am the one packaging her.

I believe that your first impact is to start from your immediate family.

That was why I was so pleased over what I considered the high point of the year when my daughter said a friend of hers was commending her on her leadership qualities and her writing style and asking how she came about them. How she was able to discover her purpose and get to know so many important people.

My daughter said she said to her, I don’t know, all I know if you have a mother like mine, you will discover your purpose.’’

This coming 2017, I am going to spend all my time assisting many people to discover purpose, teach them about talents and entrepreneurship and generally give them things that will cheer them up and establish them such that will give God pleasure.

So my first advice to you; don’t come and preach about kindness, loving your wife, assisting people to discover who they are when those things are not evident in your home front. Charity they say begins at home.

See you in 2017! 

God loves you.
