I keep saying to myself "If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be" .
As a journalist I get to meet different kinds of people, and most importantly, read different kinds of people too. This has made me know that there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you,and also that when people show you who they are, believe them the first time.
Many people have inspired me in different ways, one of them is my very first editor and news director, from about 10 years ago, my teacher and preacher, boss and friend, a veteran journalist, Rev Imeh James. Today happens to be his birthday. I pray to God to keep blessing you today and always sir. Amen.
Another person that has also touched me so tenderly, yet so greatly, is the phenomenal poetess #MayaAngelou
who would have been 90 today. There's no doubt she lives on in so many of us in so many ways. She opened my eyes to the things I could only see mostly with my eyes closed- truly phenomenal.
Yet another person that inspires me is this amazing Ugep girl, lol @wofaifada
, beautiful and down to earth, hardworking and enterprising humour queen, my real friend from the first day we met, and she said "so is this the person that has been keeping us waiting ? Bros I hail o!
And immediately the atmosphere was convivial..it was effortless for her...I soon knew she was quite a phenomenon indeed.
She asked me one day, how can you say you're a journalist and you're not on instagram.? My friend enter that instagram now I don't want to hear story" lol.very sure girl.
Read her inspiring story on this edition of Waves Magazine @wavesmagazine247
,pieced together by the indefatigable publisher Lamina, someone who has also constantly amazed me.
You have no idea what we went through to make this work, from practically stealing Wofai away from set, for the interview session, or was it during the photo session? How we shuttled the mainland and Island several times and still managed to remain calm? Well let me just say his knack for success is just inspiring.
