Throwback to my Matriculation Day in Unilag. 1998. Day of Glory that became a Day of Disgrace!

Back Home (then), we had this little-black-and-white-brandless-TV that never showed steady pictures...We always had to slap it hard for it to show properly and each heavy slap only held vice for bout 20mins! I was always exasperated with it!
One Sunday, I rubbed anointing oil on it and Alleluia, the "skoin-skoin" of this toolbox-sized TV ceased and it was perfect picture all day (only on that Sunday)! Then & there, I saw a promo for an audition: New young actors and actresses wanted for the most popular family series back then. (D Executive Producer is late now, Heaven bless her soul!). I was FRIGGING EXCITED. Jotted down d address, went d next day (Monday) to their office in Ikeja, paid 2k for d form & got the Audition dates.

The actual auditioning date was the same day as my Matric. Even before the Matric, I posed with a makeshift gown (cos I couldn't afford one) & raced to Ikeja in my very best ensemble (My Dad's checkered shirt, my best denim pants, borrowed shades and my Yaba-Aba-made trainers that always smelt so bad after I took them off).
I was at the auditioning ground from 10am thru till 7pm waiting for my turn. I honestly didn't mind the long wait...I wanted to be on the show so bad cos I needed the cash, exposure and of course, work. My turn and I went in with all d confidence in d world.
They called in 10 of us & when it was time to act, I nailed it. However, there was an Actor on the panel (very popular at that time) who was eyeing me in disdain. He suddenly started throwing questions at me, perhaps in a bid to make me look stupid or throw me off but i was damn ready for him.
He looked me squarely in the eye and told me, I recall this too well; "YOU WILL NEVER MAKE IT IN THIS INDUSTRY. YOU ARE TALENTLESS AND JUST WASTED OUR TIME. YOU WANT US TO PUT U ONSCREEN? SUCH A DISGRACE". I thought he was reading from d script. Next thing, I was walked out with the others.
D other guys tried consoling me but I left shattered. Trekked from Ikeja to Yaba. Cried all The way home.

U know my name, not my story.
U've heard what I've done, but not what I'v been thru!

IT'S FINALLY OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t worry if people think I'm CRAZY.
I AM CRAZY. I have that kind of intoxicating insanity that lets other people around me dream outside of the lines and become who they’re destined to be!

First time i ever saw MICHEAL BONNY BASSEY @real_bassey was at the 2013 Big Brother Africa #TheChase opening ceremony in SA.

Fast forward to now and Niccur, it's your BIRTHDAY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE MOST fashionable DIVO alive! Even if Bassey wore rags, he'll forever stop TRAFFIC! Bassey can make d cheapest clothes look like a zillion bucks! Plus he's the funniest soul alive...Still can't get over your #EkitiFace impersonations! And he's got the most contagious laughter ever...You gast follow am laugh sef! HAPPY UNBRIDLED SOUL!

From being teased with the "Poor Lebanese" tag in school to being the most sought after in d Showbiz world to being the most punctual being to having the most stamped passport in the world....Truly, d WORLD IS BASSEY'S OYSTER!

1 universe, 9 planets, 204 countries, 809 islands, 7 seas and I had the PRIVILEGE of meeting you? I'm d luckiest brother alive! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN! LLNP***

#FlashbackFriday to 2nd Semester Exams with @officiallindaikeji in Unilag where we had just cremated an English Major course. This was in 2002.

But the real reason I'm posting this picture (Linda actually wanted it in Sepia mode even though I wanted it in colour) is to hail my Day1! LINDA IKEJI is still one of the most exquisitely amazing women I have had the utmost blessing of knowing! Just after class and exams, Linda wil grab my Higher Education note and slip money in the middle; She always knew when I was stuck (which was everyday, anyways) and if I couldn't afford Campus shuttle from Education Dept to Main Campus, she will walk the entire length with me...In neck breaking stilettos!

Before we took this picture, someone made a joke about my fake TShirt right in front of the Arts Faculty. Saying i was always wearing fake sh*t and stuff...And I should get a life. Linda looked the person up and down, flipped her long braids over her shoulder and told me to be grateful for the gift of LIFE!

Life is a series of thousands of tiny miracles. Notice them.

Just woke up to this SUNSHINE created by the @YNaija team! Purpose is truly an incredible alarm clock!
Thanks for finding me worthy to be on the #Woke100 list. Duly Appreciated. Thy MARKET shalt never run down!
The last line on my description cracked me up!

76. Denrele Edun.

To understand just how influential DENRELE EDUN has become to a generation of young Nigerian millennials challenging all the conventions reinforced by the generation that came before them, you would have to look at the breakthroughs he has had in his professional life. In a country obsessed with the idea of superficial propriety and keen on enforcing limiting restrictive gender-based expectations, Edun simply chose to be himself. After a decade on television as a child star, straight-jacketed into a mold, Derenle Edun publicly rejected all the accepted gender norms necessary to succeed on television and created his own agendered persona, revolutionary then and still revolutionary now.

Edun’s refusal to be limited by the expectations of others and the success he has gained in spite of our religious and cultural prejudices has made him a spokesperson for the young, questioning and disenfranchised. It wasn’t a role he wanted, but it is one he has taken on with as much unshakeable conviction as he does with everything else. He is problematic sometimes, but all the people who have changed the world usually are.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO @ejineokoroafor and @ms_dsf :TWO OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN IN THE WORLD!

EJINE! Where do i start from? You gave me the baddest surprise ever on my birthday and I doubt if I can top that! That FENDI backpack you got me is like my second skin...Im still reeling in shock over the way you came through to my house (even though you were really ill) and brought coolers of proper Owambe food plus gifts wey never finish til now! You are one heck of a hard-working DIVA and I'm so glad I met you, gladder i know you and gladdest you are picture perfect in my life! No Masterpiece can ever match your hustle! You truly give the sun a reason to shine everyday!!!

DORCAS SHOLA FAPSON! My bestest actress on MtvShuga! First time I ever sighted you onscreen, I was so captivated that you gat me glued thru to the last episode and even end credits. Too real...SOPHIE the bad gyal* Recall I told u? But u thot I was washing thee* And every thing you wear on that delectable body of yours is like molten gold on caramel...Chai, OverFine is worrying u! Our Upcoming "Wife" o. #RunsAway

Another 1999 throwback! But this time, dedicated to the JEANS I'm wearing! I BORROWED these pants so much that the entire Alagomeji area in Yaba assumed I was the one lending the real owner!

Shout out to the owner himself; @omonlawaptv of @waptvchannel who lived on Borno way (few houses from mine) and never complained when I eventually made the JEANS mine! I even added the decaying parts of my old denim to this jeans so that it would look different every time!
I was nicknamed "18 ko ní ásó" in the hood but I send their Papa?

Hustle was truly real!

This shot is almost 20 YEARS OLD! Throwback to 1999/2000 when @sholacreativestudios in Surulere was every models solace, learning field and prerequisite for apt discovery! If your picture never made it up on his "Wall Of Modelling Fame" , then you needed a Mannequin reshuffle!

This throwback shot is to TITI FANTA - the exquisitely beautiful model with me; the Intelligent @titithedynamite who stole my heart in my adolescent years! We listened to d same kinda music, read the same kinda books, jumped all the buses for every single casting in town, argued over the silliest things and yes, we even had a choreographed dance routine for all the clubs especially 11:45 in Ikoyi!

See the shirt I gat on? She bought it for me. Twas bout 2k or so but then I had just 3 shirts and 4 jeans so it was truly a welcome addition to my meagre wardrobe. We fought about this but she eventually had her way and got it for me. And so we trekked to Surulere (from Alagomeji, Yaba) and took this shot at Shola's studio. Plus I actually tore out the "Tommy Hilfiger" logo from a model's shirt (hanging in the changing room) and quickly pinned it on to my boxers....Do have a good laff on me!

Long story cut short; Never despise humble beginnings! And don't EVER forget your Day1's*

CONSISTENCY IS THE ONLY CURRENCY THAT MATTERS!
First Editorial of the year....!
