THE CABAL MUST FALL

Five days after the return of the president, (as they told us because no one has seen him neither has he spoken to anyone) the kitchen cabal/cabinet has started falling apart.
It is time for Nigerians to stand up and do what they ought to. Nigerians cannot sit and fold their hands while selfish and power hungry individuals in the name of politicians destroy our country and future. We all know that Yaradua is incapable of leading this country, so let us all fight for his retirement or impeachment. The kitchen cabinet ministers must be removed and all ministers re shuffled. Let us save nigeria by doing the right thing. Join us on our march

TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR PERSONALITY.

Personality goes beyond external appearance. It includes a variety of traits and qualities that attract the person concerned.

1. Be interested in people. Try to discover what other people want. Their likes,dislikes,interests and belief. This will make you attractive and pleasing to others.

2. Assume that people like you. If you don't have self confidence in yourself then people wont want to meet you. People are attracted to confidence and once you're, you'll be a people magnet.

3. Admit your weakness, nobody is perfect and people all have limits. To improve your personality you need to accept your defects and let people accept you for who you are rather than what you are.

4. Admire and praise people. Tell them how attractive they look and make them feel how important they are to you. Let it be from your heart and people will also admire and praise you.

5. Associate with people who are successful and happy. Seek the companionship of others who can give you new points of view, renewed hopes and meaningful life. Misery they say is contagious so avoid miserable people.

6. Attend social gatherings. Social gatherings can increase your circle of friends. Social events can also give you new insight and experiences. It can help improve your relationship with other people and your community. Attend parties, weddings, seminars as they would give you new insights and experiences.

7. Change your environment. Go on vacations and try other places. See the world or another state. The more you travel the more exposed you become.

8. Learn new things, find things you love it could be music, art, anything you love or admire and try learning it or atleast know more about it. People love to meet crafty and multi talented people.

Your personality keeps growing as you grow and its a lifelong process.

Happy Birthday to Me.

Last week thursday was my birthday, that was the same day i went to Air Force Base. I had lots of fun, got lots of texts, calls,mails and presents. I didn't think people would remember and i was so surprised even the least expected friends called. Thanks to everyone for making it a wonderful one especially my Baby, i spent most of the day with her. I love you all and Her more. :)
Also thanks to a few artists that showed me love, wish you all success in your careers.

NIGERIAN AIR FORCE




Yesterday i was opportuned to go to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Base in Enugu. I had some stuff to do there. On coming in stopped at the security post, it was empty and i needed someone to direct me on where to find an officer. As i was walking back i heard people talking behind the post and decided to check out if it was the officer on duty.

As i walked towards them, the next thing i heard was gun cocks and points at me, the officer shouted bloody civilian lie down there, are you crazy, do you know what it means to put on uniform. I was confused, my brain made a thousand calculations on possible ways to either dodge the bullet or run out as i was still close the gate. Luckily the voice said "will you get off that parade ground now before i shoot and lie down there" In my mind i said who sent me is this what am going to do today ? In a split second i got off the parade ground which i just realised i was standing on and suddenly as if already programmed i spoke in hausa telling the man sorry i didn't know because he spoke with am hausa accent. He was shocked and so happy to hear me talk to him in hausa put away the gun and told me to come. I walked round the parade ground not even stepping an inch close to it.
We talked in hausa, he asked me who i was looking for, where i came from and if i was hausa. I lied to him that i was. I know lots of local govt areas and villages. He told me i was at the wrong base and directed me to 305 flying school here in Enugu.

On getting to the flying school, i was careful not to mistakenly step on their parade ground. I asked the security guy for who i came to see and luckily the guy already knew i was coming. The person who sent me was a commandant in the army and the person he sent me to was also high ranking in the air force. I was treated like an army off duty because i was on mofty. They asked me how my base was i just replied fine and he looked at me. I just smiled and told them i was in a hurry.
I met the man and we went to their quarters, it was very neat, each room i peeped into was organised and i was suprised because in the army people live in dust bins for quarters. He took me to the air field were some pilots were learning how to fly, showed me around and finally gave me what i came for Air Force Entrance Exam Scratch Card. He said you'll love it here in the air force and left. I told him goodbye and left.

The PRESIDENT RETURNS



After staying outside the country for more than 90 days, Umaru Yar'adua has made it back, so they say. No one has seen him or seen any video, all we saw was a photo of a convoy with an ambulance and that leaves me wondering what his wife and some northern leaders are upto. For now we can't say but i've got a lot of crazy thoughts and ideas in my head.

1. Clone: If the reports we heard last year was true about the president dying on 10 december 2009, it could be possible they've been stalling us and lying to us to gain more time to create a clone. I'm just saying its possible, there a lot of northerners that look like the president and with little cosmetic surgery....

2. Imbecile: If he was actually brain dead as they say, then we might have doctors forge a report and tell us he's ok and fit to run the country. You know what that means, his wife does the politics, steal the funds and ends up destroying the country because militants would come back and she doesn't like them. If we're lucky we get only a civil war and lots of casualties, Massob( movement for the actualisation of the sovereign state of biafra) strikes and blows up niger bridge to cut off northerners looks up Enugu markudi road and declare themselves independent.

If we're not lucky then we get two civil wars because after biafra declares itself a country. It will have to fight out militants because they wont just lay their arms and watch others rule them, they will equally want to be on their own selling oil. Anyway it goes it is still bad.

3. Retires: The president retires peacefully and hands over to Goodluck we all live in peace(if thats what we're living in now) for a while till elections. PDP will not want GoodLuck for second term because the guy wont listen to them and internal war starts in the party this can lead to three outcomes

a. PDP falls and another party wins. This is least likely to happen.

b. PDP splits after turning the laws upside down and we end up having Pdp old school and pdp all stars. The stronger wins

c. Military gets tired of watching all these rubbish does a coupe and we're back where we started.

Lock UP


Aids is real and i don't think pre-marital sex is worth it. Abstain if you want to stay alive :)

INSPIRE NAIJA




i am still working on my campaign to inspire Nigerians around the globe. I'm currently lost in my plans and thoughts so i think i'll take a break. I've been getting discouraged by many people telling me to stop dreaming and wasting my time. I don't give up easily not on this one. If you have suggestions and tips i'll really appreciate it.

Nigerian Movies

I used to be an art critic, i never saw anything interesting and i thought anyone is an Art class instead of science was wasting their time and money. Recently i started seeing the science of art and was pretty impressed.

Was at a friends yesterday and he told me to watch a nigerian movie. I hate Nigerian movies with a passion, my mom and sisters spend the whole day watching African Magic(should be called African Garbage). I've not seen any creativity in the Nigerian movie industry or Nollywood as it is critically called.

He convinced me to watch that it was different and i decided to do what i call fast play because i cant stand the movies. The movie was titled FORBIDDEN FRUIT, i was not impressed one bit. The director had no idea of what he was doing, the movie was unordered and either the story writer or script writer wasn't thinking well when he wrote it. Finally finished going through it and it wasn't worth it.

I keep asking myself where are the young directors, actors and creative minds. How come only the same faces fill billboards and screens. The music industry has managed to break out with directors like clearance peters,wudi,djini,dj tee,oshodi,mex and others except sesan(mo-hits director) who has shown he has no talent at all just luck. Cant they see the quaility of Nigerian videos and how good the videography is.
I think Nollywood should be closed, a strong critics community and magazine should be started to kill it. Then fresh new faces should be auditioned and young reasonable directors show off their skills. We really need script writers and story tellers because all nigerian movies look alike.

Am afraid

As the year comes to an end, i fear that i wont be able to cope with the trend.

I sit silently in the dark talking to The One that's close to my heart.

But she fears also, wat will next year bring, will it wipe off her tears or will it be like past years.

I sit and ponder, these marvels make me wonder, if i deserve it.

Have i made good use of the last or am i just going to re-live my past.

Its minutes to midnight, i close my eyes and my demons are in sight. Full of fright but the only way out is to fight.

Another decade fades and quickly time dissolves. Everyone is busy makin resolves. I ask myself if a new resolution is needed or a few solutions to the ones seeded.

simultaneously these thoughts run through our minds like equations of a kind. More like a blind leading his kind.

But there's hope, it gives us the strength we need to cope. It is the reason why we try again and forget the pains of failure.

I wrote this some minutes after new year, it was what i was feeling as at then.

She's a GUN

I was opportuned to hold a gun and shoot it at a still target. I got alot of feelings and temptations while holding that piece. Its beautiful though and bullets are just like jewelries.


Her beauty is one of a kind, her curves are of perfect design.

She's loved by all races and feared in most cases.
Her lips are hot whenever she talks.

she can disguise in many sizes and shapes,yet she's still the same(i love her when she's disguised as a colt). Even though she's old, she's not ashame.


Whenever am with her everyone respects me but in their minds they detest me.

To those who have her she brings power and satisfaction. The power of her attraction is in seduction.

Her colors are a thing of attraction,whenever she talks there's never a distraction.

You could handle her anyway and she'll still be loyal. You could make her sad but she'll still be jovial.

She's hardly clothed and sends chills down the spine of her viewers.

Some people finger her all day but she prefers foreplay.

To alot of people she has brought heart aches &heart breaks.

Some lost their loved ones to her because friendship means nothing to her.

She and her lover have no hearts yet their love is stronger than wine and sweeter than vine.

She'll never change in time and i know she'll never be mine.

All her lovers know no peace, their minds are never at ease.

Her name is the most popular name of our time, she's the highest cause of death.

SHE'S A GUN.

Colt .45 revolver.
Beretta Pkseries.
Desert Eagle.

i am scared

Hi, i guess you must have been seeing Extracted frm WillE THE LIFE. I started writing a book with different stories and random thoughts with notes at the begining of each chapter which has been all i've been posting.

I am scared,
sweat dripping all over my palm. Cold feet but i need to be calm.

Its that feeling again, my mind is racing, i can hear her footsteps coming.

She's right in front of me. I'm paralysed, cant move my hands,just trying to visualize .

We're looking at each other, smiling and using word play on one another, waiting for the first person to grab the other.

My pulse is rioting and my chances are getting thin. My skin is itching cos am filled with this feeling.

But am still scared, i wonder if its the right time. If she's that type.

I summon courage, my emotions outraged. Took a step further, my lips were eager she had no choice like a beggar.

Her lips tasted like cedar, her hips were shaped like a guitar. She smelled like cigar,though the addiction was sweeter.

And finally there was a kiss, we were both frozen in bliss. My heart stopped as if it rests in peace....

She smiles, i see the twinkle in her eyes, it made me forget that time flies. I kiss her again, only to find out it was all lies....

What was i thinking, i forgot i've been drinking suddenly i wake to find out i was dreaming.

CORRUPTION

Woke up after two or three hours of sleep(slept while listening to Linkin Park-Hands held high). Just a thought about what our country Nigeria has turned into.

Every morning i wake with tears in eye cos nowadays people live with fears in their mind.

When these politicians come in,
people are scared and start runnin.
Its no longer about knowing somethin,
its all about money and fist pumpin.
I want to risk somethin
take back what's mine. Do something i know they'll attack me for,
cos am sick of been treated like i had before.
Like its stupid to fight for what am fightin for.

Fuck amnesty i don't intend to stop fighting,
cos this is a new brand of war that i am selling and it doesn't carter the rich and abandon the poor.

These old men telling me to have some respect, while they stash cash at the back of their jet.

On the news these leaders just talk away, waiting for 9'o clock news to replay at the end of the day, everybody is angry and walks away

The senate just approved a bill, they say its the best health centre but the president is ill. All they care about is who signs the cheque, the president can go abroad for medical check.

The world is cold and only bold men take action. We wanted democracy but they gave us a faction. No dividends not even a fraction. My hands on the trigger and they're begging for compassion like it wasn't their faults and wasn't their actions

kidnapping is the order of d day, but no politician has ever disappeared for a day. The youths claim tough but cant fight for their rights today.
80 million youths all want a short cut but these men are wiser and cut them short.

The military is worse than a girls scout now, armed forces are worse than zombies wow. They sit back and stare collect bribes and share while we're living in hell.

I used to hold a book with pride but nowadays people will laugh at you sayin it doesn't provide enough food on the table and gas in d tank. They if you're educated you'll never own the bank you'll end being the highest officer in rank.

ADDICTION

Last year alot of my friends suffered from different addictions ranging from alcohol to narcotics. One evening i sat down jobless and decided to test my writing skills because alot of my friends are either into script writing,poetry and what have you. This is what i wrote:
They look at me but they cant see the real me. They only see an image of their self. I play their fantasies, satisfy their strongest desires. They trust and believe me because they feel comfortable around me. I show them only a little of what they want to see, tell them a piece of what they want to hear, yet they are intoxicated by me. I pick my targets carefully, study them,try to think like them before i lure them. I am an illusion yet am as real as they can feel. Whenever they look into my eyes they are charmed by me. I have no emotions i have no feelings yet with me they get loads of it.
Whenever they try to understand my ways they get lost and confused. They loose everything they've ever felt with me. Still they cant live without me cos they're addicted to me. I am one of the strongest things humans fight. Some fight me for a lifetime, some fight me for years while others months and weeks. Only the Strongest fight their way through cos i can never been won entirely. My effects might go away for sometime but i silently return, eating you up slowly till you cant do without me.
I am ADDICTION.

The OTHER SIDE

I've been more of a mystery to my friends for sometime. Nobody really knows what am about or who i am. Its funny how i can still read them in seconds while they continue endlessly trying to figure me out. Life has been fair and i've been on both sides of the yin yang. If people's age were measured by experience i guess i'll be about 70yrs old or more lol. For a long time now i've been contemplating if my life needs a blog or should i just keep quite and let my thoughts eat me up? But i learnt something today and the morale of it was IF YOU LEARN LATE,SHARE IT WITH OTHERS SO THEY CAN LEARN EARLY. I'll be posting random thoughts,imaginations,fictions and events that happen in my life. Thanks for reading and Have fun. Inspire someone today.
