Independence, Klorofyl Magazine and then some...

Happy Independence People!

I must confess I'm not so excited today but I'm glad Nigeria is still here. What I want to know is where we go from here. I don't want to wait five, ten or twenty years to see the Naija I dream of. Can I please experience it now? Sigh..who should I be saying this to? Our leaders? Politicians? the president? the youths? I tire o.

Baba God, na your hand we dey.....

On to other things, I want to share with you a few of what I've been seeing and reading.

First on the list is 'Don't miss your moment' a book by Judy Jacobs (you remember the dancing lady minister at the Experience Lagos 2010?)
If you are like me, and you're curious about your purpose on earth, you should read this book. Really, you should. It brings to mind my favourite catch phrase for purpose, 'the mystery of predestination.'

Also, please check out Tolu Odukoya's 'Gifted and Proud.' It's Her new single featuring Onyeka Onwenu. Tolu is blessed with a great voice, and if you're wondering, yes, she is Late Pastor Bimbo Odukoya's daughter. I would have posted the video here from youtube but for some weird reason blogger's video thingy has gone awry, so please click HERE to watch it.

Last, but certainly not the least, you should check out Klorofyl Mag! These guys are something else. Kudos to Tolu Oloruntoba and his team. I thought their first issue was great but the second one themed 'Habitat' is even better. The articles are awesome, the photography is out of this world. It's free too, for now *wink* so please download away. Click HERE and make sure you spread the word. 
We have great minds in this generation.We indeed have a great future.

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by.

I was not that much enthusiastic about Nigeria's independence celebration myself. Just hoping we get to achieve some of the dreams we have. I listened to the song a while back, loved it. The guy that directed the video is actually one of my cousin; the come from the same town-family-friend-kind of cousin, lol. About to check out the magazine now....

Sweet! Pastor Bims Daughter singing? I'm going to be looking out for her as well. As pare Naija, don't worry (no cliches here). But really things will look up. It will! A new generation is already rising up (you and I included) and positive changes are on the way. Keep your head up :)

Tolu is a great singer, she sounds even more powerful when singing live!

I will check out the Klorofyl magazine. It sounds like it would be interesting. I had heard Tolu Odukoya's song a while ago and I loved it. I put the link on my facebook page so my friends could also check it out and I have the song on my laptop (i'm a lover of good music). I wish her all the best.
