It ran around his neck.
Blueish black.

Twenty four million plus naira inclusive of all charges.

Spotlight 7 - Gideon's Photography

Recently, I was privileged to meet a rare gem bubbling with creativity and talent. Mr Gideon Ikwunze, a technically self-employed young Nigerian who discovered his passion for photography and graphics design early enough in life, storms TRJ today with his extraordinary effect.

Gideon is currently focused  on photo editing and manipulation for the time being.  He picks up raw photos from direct sources (photographers) and magically transforms them to suit the taste of the owners.

A Friend Indeed

I can't tell you how many posts and statuses I've seen of people threatening to cut off undeserving friends, talking about how much they don't need anyone else, or how little you matter to their life.

Now as the year is ending, these posts are intensifying. "All my haters should stay in 2017", "If you know you don't like me, delete my contact" and all sorts of things.

Now, don't get me wrong; I'm all up for staying in a good crowd, with good friends that are truly good for your wellbeing. But I've noticed the trends these days in our generation are centered and popularized around selfishness and building walls.

Father raised me, from the bottom ground up
No, he wasn't always there, but he was always enough

He is... always wise, he knew just what to say
Not because he was perfect - but because, he saved the day

Christmas for George

The old man sat in his gas station on a cold Christmas Eve. He hadn't been anywhere in years since his wife had passed away. He had no decorations, no tree, no lights. It was just another day to him. He didn't hate Christmas, just couldn't find a reason to celebrate. There were no children in his life. His wife had gone.

He was sitting there looking at the snow that had been falling for the last hour and wondering what it was all about when the door opened and a homeless man stepped through. Instead of throwing the man out, George, Old George as he was known by his customers, told the man to come and sit by the space heater and warm-up.

"Thank you, but I don't mean to intrude," said the stranger. "I see you're busy. I'll just go"

"Not without something hot in your belly," George turned and opened a wide mouth Thermos and handed it to the stranger. "It ain't much, but it's hot and tasty. Stew. Made it myself. When you're done there's coffee and it's fresh."

Just at that moment he heard the "ding" of the driveway bell. "Excuse me, be right back," George said. There in the driveway was an old 53 Chevy. Steam was rolling out of the front. The driver was panicked.

Top 10 things every 200L University student needs to know

Why did no-one ever tell me about this before...?

I'm sure by now, whatever CGPA you got in 100lvl has slapped you 95° back into reality. Maybe it was a "5.0", or maybe a "1.5". Well, whatever it is, you've got some idea of what you did wrong, and what you did right.

Here's a bit of friendly, not-rubbing-it-in-your-face, advice to get your pep and step back on the right track. (If it was ever there)

1. Stick to the right crowd 
Not this crowd. This is an example of the wrong crowd. Don't be like this crowd.

Deep in your heart, you know all those people dragging you to go to parties 3 times a week aren't good for your soul.

Starting now, Greet them with a "Hello from the other side". Or at least, get some friends that read a lot, to keep your wild cravings in check. Half-and-half good crowd is better than none.

2017 in a nutshell

Mary Idowu

The year 2017 started with a bang for me. Sometimes, it feels like it was just yesterday I shouted happy new year; but when the year began proper, it seemed so long and tedious and there were times when time flew and at other times when I kept watching the clock. Looking through the year now, 2017 has been very dramatic with it's highs and lows, it gave some a new lease on life and from others, it snatched quite a bit. I don't know how 2017 was for you but for me, it was a mixture of fun and annoyance. So, as the year is gradually coming to an end, here are some highlights of  2017;

Donald Trump became President: 

I was part of the small percentage of people who felt like Donald Trump would become the President, yet it still came to me as a shock when I heard the news that he actually won the election. For some reasons I felt like something could still happen and Hillary would win; but when he was sworn in as the President and he moved into the white house on the 20th of January, I realized that anyone could become anything if they really want to. It is just a matter of determination, saying and doing the right things, meeting the right people and having some sort of tough skin. I mean c'mon!! The whole world was literally against the man.

Vote For Me

Emeka was a hard-working, honest man. 

He was head prefect of his school in SS2, got several positions of leadership in his SUG, held several posts in various NGO' s, both national and international. He always inspired people to follow him to do the right thing, and always did his best to curtail corruption anywhere he saw it. Soon enough he met a man, Mr. Tunde Adebanjo, who was making waves as a statesman and champion of the people. He worked in the government, and did so much for his people.

Tunde inspired him to enter the government too. He could change the country!! He could fix all the problems that the past leaders had been dumping on the system for years since. All he needed to do was win - and by the grace of God, he did...
