#HowIStarted ♻ @klazeofficial - ■So I was actually bragging to a friend yesterday, that #HowIStarted is exactly a year since we started; I was expecting a cool remark but then she smucked and was like "that una program wey na only una una dey attend am.." and I was like only us?.. only us as how? Abeg explain wetin you mean by only una una? .. who we be?
We discussed further but at the end of the day all I gathered from her thoughts was the fact that people believe you have to be a top notch professional or engaged in a fulltime career of some sort to attend #HowIStarted but the stereotype is wrong.
Maybe its the whole web registration process that makes it seem elitist but I believe the unique nature of how I started is the simplicity.
When I and my crew stepped in during the first #HowIStarted with @georgeokoro (with all the setup stunts we all know the wedding guruu is capable of ) we thought we wld meet a heart stopping fancy stage, angelic lights and full option sound setup, but then what we met amazed us, a regular setup, more like that of a good ol sitting room discussion with cousins; so simple that it doesn't matter how egocentric the guest celebrity is they are forced to loosen up and just gist with everyone when they get there.
So, umm.. I still haven't figured who my friends "Una Una" refers to but am sure there's no project in Nigeria that demystifies top celebrities, TV and social media Lords and godess the way #HowIStarted does, and you can quote me on that; those who have attended could honestly testify that the simple interactive setup brings you closer home to these celebrities and even makes you feel like one of their bestie, you get to gist freely with them, ask them any question, take selfies and even explore trade secrets from these sucessful entrepreneurs at least for a day.. irrespective of career, irrespective of social status.
Personally I have no doubt that #HowIStarted would grow bigger in more years to come, but then I just hope our good 'ol setup remains the same.
Much respect @theweddingmall @eddiemadaki @delphotos1 @theweddingguruu and all our speakers so far.. thanks so much for accepting #KTFP on board #ThatPRguy✔
