Made in Nigeria

And people say nothing good can come out of our Dear Naija.

Watch the Video above and you will be impressed.

Directed by Patrick Elis (a renowned name in the Nigerian Music Industry), Sexy Steel's Bebedi Alhaja featuring Vector takes you back to those sweet old days of Highlife-Afrobeats in its rawest form.

Featuring retro costumes and stunningly detailed sets right out of the 70s, the classic video more or less mimics a blast from the past.

*The video has been out for a while but I just stumbled upon it today (probably stale gist for you but new gist for me :) ).

I was truly captivated by the originality and old-school feel of the video. 

And of course its fuji beat found a way to my yoruba heart (yels ke!!!). 

And to think WE (Nigerians) did it!!!!

I really don't care what anyone says, to me; Nigeria is and will always be a land bubbling with young and vibrant minds ready to explode (in a good way).

And this video clearly supports my point of view.

I really do hope YOU enjoy it.

Tick Tock.

Just a few more days before we say adieu  to 2012.

And of course, I have so much I want to say about 2012 (I am a typaholic; my fingers just won't stop once they hit my keypad / keyboard).

But today, am going to refrain from typing endlessly.

And instead just simply say:


Thank YOU for being a part of my 2012.

Thank YOU for making out time to delve into my World.

Thank YOU for making me a part of your World.

THANK YOU and I look forward to a blissful 2013 with YOU.

Feliz Navidad

Hello Dear Ones,

Another Christmas is here again.

A time to celebrate the birth of God's greatest gift to Mankind - Jesus Christ.

A time to immerse ourselves in the love and joy that comes with the Season.

A time to share memories with our loved ones and honour those "family traditions" that have been passed on from generation to generation.

Most importantly, it's a time to deeply reflect on God's unconditional love for us, as nothing else can explain why he sent his most priced possession to redeem us.

Emmanuel : God is with US.

Now my bed calleth, just popped in to say:

Merry Christmas to YOU, wishing you boundless love and all the good tidings that comes with the Season.

NB: feel free to eat to stupor, Andrew Liver Salt is still in the market the last time I checked :).

General Pype - Victorious Man

You know that feeling you get when you watch a musical video that immediately gives you goose bumps and touches you deep inside.

Well, General Pype’s Victorious Man just gave me that amazing feeling.

It is a song that depicts General Pype‘s childhood, environment, his experiences and that of loved ones while growing up.

My favorite line in the song is:
“So me made up my mind by the grace of God, kill them with love, I will never give up”

Enjoy :).

BaRuQ Material Gurl

The alternative pop/rock iconic singer BaRuQ is back yet again with another smashing single titled "Material Gurl".

The new single precedes his first single "Misconception" which received massive air play on radio.

Material Girl produced by Dr Tim is part of his forthcoming debut album to be released in 2013 and its lyrics resonates the ills of human trafficking and illegal sex trade in Nigeria.

Its pop rock beat will get you swaying to the tune while passing across a vital message.

Its definitely one of my favorite songs for 2012.

And as we do with all good things, we share.

So enjoy :):

15 / 12 / 12

15/12/12 is a day that will remain etched in the hearts of residents and indigenes of Kaduna State.

On this day we lost not just a Leader but a Father.

On this day we lost the ever-smiling and humble Governor of our dear State.

It is a day that will remain in our hearts for a very long time.

Sleep on Our Dear Father and Leader.

Rest in peace Sir Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa Na Kowa.

Rest in peace General Owoeye Azazi and others who lost their lives in the ill fated crash.

Insignificantly Significant

Warning: Before you proceed further, the story below may seem inconsequential or a bit silly but do have the patience to read on and you will definitely learn something from it (yes, you sure will :) ).

It all started with a packet of chewing gum (no extra meaning hidden there).

Weekend Quote

Hello Dear Ones,

Here is something for the Ladies to ponder on as we switch into the weekend "mood".


"You are beautiful not for the shape of the vessel, but for the volume of the SOUL it carries"


Life is Beautiful, Live IT.

How to Create a Life Plan by Michael Hyatt

In my journey through the Internet, I stumbled across a blog post on How to Create a Life Plan by Michael Hyatt (a renowned blogger on leadership and productivity and also the CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, a publishing Company in the U.S). 

I found the post really interesting and practical, and I strongly believe it will appeal to a lot of "planners" out there especially as the Year is fast coming to an end and 2013 beckons with its endless possibilities, no time like now to "plan", so enjoy:

Note: I would have obliged you with a complete outline of the post here but I think it is “sweeter” to go straight to the source (the link will take you directly to the post).

Now we will know those who read the post and those who didn't because my “opinion” will make very little sense to you if you skipped clicking on the link (no “shortcut” for this one *straight face*).

My Humble Opinion: I think this is a great article that reminds you of the need to live a life filled with purpose but on the other hand we get so carried away being the planner and director of our lives that we totally forget God.

Am speaking from experience; at the end of 2011, I had all my plans /goals for 2012 all figured out (which is a good thing, since groping in the dark is not a better alternative) but the flaw in my plan was that I had already made up my mind to "direct" how my goals were going to come to fruition and let's just say God showed me who the "Boss" is, in a kind way of course because I accomplished 90 percent of my goals (which am eternally grateful to God for) but I didn't do them "on my own". I had the goals in my head / written down but God had the final blueprint.

So in as much as this is a great article (which will come in handy as we plan for 2013), let's not forget to have this in mind: "We plan our steps but God directs our paths"

Make your life plan but refrain from trying to be the director of your life, let God do His work. This way you aren't being reactive (waiting for manna to fall from heaven) but even in your "proactive" state, you still know who the "Boss" is. 

With a "Life Plan", you clearly know what you want, where to invest your energy and what you need to do to get to your point of "optimization", but we must remember to include God in every single step we take in making our "Life Plan" a reality. 

Enjoy "designing" a beautiful 2013 and the rest of your life, if you so wish.

Some people may totally disagree with the usefulness of a short-term plan talk more of a Life Plan, as they believe it is best to relax and let destiny make things happen. 

So which category do you fall under; The Planner or The Destiny Believer? . As the popular saying goes; "Different Strokes for Different Folks", so feel free to share your diverse opinions.
