Microsoft and Nigerian Youth Empowerment
23 February 2008
If you’re a student of the Lagos State University, you would have noticed the presence of Microsoft on your campus earlier today. Same for 19 other campuses that have been visited with the good news of possible participation in the 2008 Imagine Cup — plus other goodies. Will a Nigerian student make us proud this year again? Step up to the challenge! One world. Unlimited possibilities. Let’s face it — the world needs help. The kind of help that happens...

Have you seen the Hallowed Chambers of the National Assembly on TV recently? They are always empty?!* I wonder what other business the honorable members of the national assembly have other than tending to national legislations and issues in that direction. In truth one does not need a sooth-sayer to know that the honorables are business men and women with other businesses in the national assembly other than what they told us when they courted us for...
GREAT -IFE: Dammy's New song
07 February 2008
There has been some excitement at home in recent times, as two independent processes though related in some ways, matured about the same time thus: University of Lagos graduated her 2003 set and the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile Ife, released the names of successful students in her ongoing admission process. This translated for my family into, a new graduate (following me :), off course)and a newly admitted undergraduate-as you guessed I have...
“Standing Up To Be Counted” — Pat Utomi
06 February 2008
Today is for me a day of thanksgiving. Fifty two years ago I was given the gift of life. Thanksgiving to the creator is a debt so big we could never pay it off. The hope and prayer is that in his mercy nature he accepts our tainted struggle to do His will. I have also been gifted with mentors that taught me early in life the important of walking your talk and an early acceptance that values shape human progress. Part of the result has been that in...
My HIV status
02 February 2008
I walked confidently towards the laboratory, convinced the Doctor is wrong. I have never engaged in any high risk behaviour. For the lab technologists, taking the required samples and specimen was routine-I am sure announcing the result of this test will neither draw a smile or a frown from them too. I returned two days later for the result of the test and that was for me, the real test. Questions raged in my heart, what if the doctor was right and...

There had been several people in my life and in a brief moment of reflection a few minutes back decided to mention the following and their charge to me – some are humorous though. ‘Gbenga Sesan: Work! work!! Work!!! and Plaaaaaaaaaaay!!! But whatever you do focus on the movie not the snap shot- look beyond now always. Dayo Alao: find excitement in all you do. Apostle Asuni: Do well whatever deserves to be done. Deoluakinyemi: the Iceberg...
Letter to the Looser
26 January 2008
Was checking through blog posts on my favorite social networking site: Taking It Global when I came across the post with the same title as this blog post, I liked it and wanted to share it and guess what the author wanted me to :). Here is it: “Dear Loooser, Winner creates history and looser creates mystery. So don’t worry. History and Mystery both are highly valuable in Hollywood. Yours, Share This”
