The Latest

What nobody tells people who are beginners — and I really wish someone had told this to me —  is that all of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, and it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase. They quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know it’s normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through. And most importantly let God take FULL charge. #IraGlass #ThankYouLord #Amen Photograhy: @paulukonu

Ladies & Gentlemen, M.I is BACK! New Music - King James

Ladies & Gentlemen, M.I is BACK! New Music – King James

This is the kind of news we like to hear as the weekend kicks off. Nigerian Hip Hop artist, M.I. is back after been away from the music scene for a while and starving us of his great flows. He’s back with a new single ”King James,” an infectious hip hop track infused with elements of Reggae.

They Call me King James, the Lebron of Verses,” he says. Yep, we definitely missed his lyrical dexterity.

Few days ago I was cooking and having strong thoughts about my sister, whispered a prayer and called her not knowing that was the moment she was pushing. She called back a few minutes later to say Zoey Keli Ogon had safely arrived and that as soon as she saw her, she said ‘she looks like Sharon’. Awww…. Welcome to the world Zoey, I can’t wait to carry you up, take you out, buy you fabulous dresses, kiss you, play with you and take selfies. Thank You Father Lord for EVERYTHING you have done for my family. #uncountableblessings #Iamabigaunty 💃💃💃💃
