Letter to Nigeria!! Happy Independence

Let the drums speak, putting every child on the dance floor, creating decorum and peace. Let the drums speak, holding every hand together and uniting our words. 

Let —– the —— drums —– speak 
The virtues of our fathers has reigned with so many in tears, 

The changed power has caused the drums to drop, 

At the sound of the bass, the women run for the crisis just begun, 

Let the words of the innocent be heard again, 

They have been a total selfish law placed for their own gain, 

We seek it, and created a monster. 
Hold on!!! 
Where are we headed? 

How can we let a leaper lead in the form of a prince? 

Would a nation stand again when the people are blind?
I want my beating drums to roll, I want the child to wrestle, 

I want our women to have a place in our society, 

Let the beating drums roll again. 
Those happy times of freedom, felt like bondage, 

Now bondage has come, and we call it freedom. 

Not again should be let the laws be passed, 

Not again should our youths be deceived, 

Not again should a woman fall to the feet of a man for mercy, 

We were united until promises broke us, 

We had values until pride took them away, 

Now we are lost looking for ourselves. 
It’s a new day, wake up to reality, 

The ethics we carved are the reasons for our failures, 

Forget policies and let’s be spontaneous, 

Let our actions be a reflection of how great we are.
Let our Nation stand for something, 
Nigeria would be great if only youths would be given a chance,

Someday you would appreciate me for this, 

Someday you would.

My story

The death of a man created a witch,
The witch who cooked and mopped the floor, 

Same witch who fed and clothed you. 

A witch who was accused for the wrongs in the family,
A witch who was blood, 

Same witch would lay her life for you. 

Strong headed woman who lost her pride at the time the price was paid,
Who lost her future for the growth of a child, 

Same kept herself when no one believed. 

It is wrong she tells herself, 
But no one to listen;

Her voice is gone, 

Now she is tied to the whispers. 

The death of a man created the witch. 
This is personal, I wish you would understand. Read it as your own 

Let Us Smile Tour Day 1

LET US SHINE the light that dreams do come true

LET US GET to them now that we still can before they lose their innocence

LET US REMEMBER they are the future

LET US GIVE so they understand it’s the greatest principle of success

LET US TAKE all the pain and hopelessness away

LETS US REJOICE because God is always with them

LET US SHOW that LOVE is the Greatest

LET US SMILE AND GIVE THEM A REASON TO BELIEVE AGAIN.
A child’s smile can heal the world

A child’s dream can change the world

A child’s heart can stop a war

A child’s touch is indelible

A child’s life is worth more than the world

Build Yourself by Okorhi Ogagaogene 

At some point I thought reaching out to friends would help build and grow my brand, but then I realized that I was stuck to the same point for over 6months, so here is what I have done after my realization. 
– I rebranded myself

– I stopped depending on friends 

– I keep business as business and friends as friends. 

– I started doing more that I spoke. 

– I have lay low when necessary. 

Here is what I have achieved within the period, after I stopped the friendship. 

– As a brand we have hit a total of 404 Children With an estimated 904 to be helped in 2016.

– Built one of the biggest Charity Events in Africa – LET US SMILE TOUR 

– Produced new concepts which would be airing soon. 

– Created a platform for youths to voice out their mind. 

– Given chance to start ups. 

The truth of this is simple, if you are not passionate about what you do, people would break you in the name of friendship. 

We are Youths, we have got Power, we are Creative and it’s time for Change.
