The Music Industry is home to so many talents, while most rely on their creative skills and impeccable use of words, there are those who base their entire music career on Proverbs 3:5. One of such “Proverbs 3:5” persons is our Aspire candidate for this month. Currently based in UK, Sonnie Badu began his ministry at a very young age, singing in the capital of Ghana, Accra. Sonnie was raised under a strict Christian upbringing by his parent, Rev. and Mrs. Agyeman Badu, a prominent pastor in Accra. It was through this......

Man Of Vision

Our Aspire candidate is truly a man of vision, who had dreams from a young age on how to impact his society and with diligence, make his own little difference count. Godwin Benson an Akwa Ibom indigene born in Lagos on the 11th of July 1989, he grew up in a simple Christian family with parents that taught him to love God. The third and “avid reader” child of four children was often regarded as the “destructive” one as he’d disassemble almost everything in an attempt to understand how it worked. Godwin......

Casting Worries

I am a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, which sometimes connotes not having the usual access to cash favours from parents. I should however state for the record that my parents are the best, very supportive and extra loving. Back to my story, I was posted last year and my call-up letter indicated the Federal Capital City, Abuja. The three mandatory weeks on camp rolled out and I was eager to redeploy, but due to lack of connections aka “leg” to pull the necessary strings and coupled with the “Abuja hype”,......

Fear

When a baby is newly born, it has no idea what fear or danger is. To a baby, fire is shiny, attractive and harmless till it reaches for a candle flame and quickly withdraws from the burning effect it brings the skin.

Fear results in a cautious withdrawing response to physical and emotional danger which allows us protect ourselves from legitimate threats. We however sometimes take our fear over......

Whole to Love

Deedee, my sister, invited me to her church for a special program three years ago. I had just gotten out of a bad relationship, the third in 18 months. I was quite depressed and so I just decided to get out of my house even if it meant going to some ‘religious program’. I thought it couldn’t be all that bad since my sister was married to one of the best guys in the world. Maybe my man was in the church too. No. I didn’t meet “my man” there but I......

The Internet of Beings

I draw my epiphany from Kevin Ashton and his popular and emerging IT terminology – The Internet of Things. For clarification, the internet of things refers to the ability of a device or person to transmit information across a network given a unique identity of fit over the network. Pragmatically, a chip can be attached to your car tyre to automatically alert or mail your mechanic whenever it’s below a certain threshold. Everyone can relate to few times in life when you just wished your confusion could be alleviated by the provision......

Gifted Hands

Back in the days, graduates who aced their studies literally got begged with prolific job offers due to the booming economic state of Nigeria. In recent times, the decline in the economic state of the country has led Nigerians to venture into alternative sources of income, with a steady rise in the acquisition of knowledge of crafts, creative works and informal trades without any restriction to gender; we now have both gender as auto-mechanics, hair stylists, fashion designers, bus drivers and other occupations with both outperforming each other. To this end, some......

Now I See

Tarsus wasn’t different from any other suburb; actually, it was very popular and notable in its time for being a commercial hub for goods processing along the Mediterranean Sea. On one cold chilly morning, baby Pee was born into a wealthy tarsus household and immediately stole the love of his family. Dad and Mum had been much used to the Pharisaic traditions and thus raised him to become one of its bests. He had the very best of everything wanted. Gamaliel High School had one of its most outstanding students in Pee.......
