In a world where certificates trend on a viral scale making the future uncertain for the one whose life and background was dealt a great blow by a lack of formal education particularly a University Degree, yet a Nigerian Woman whose pedigree at birth was studded by obscurity, hopelessness and impending socio-economic jeopardy, dared the odds as she joins the A-list of world scholars in impacting nations with rich educational values as a Lecturer at Harvard University & other foremost Universities in the world. Ladies & Gentle Men, I present to you the true story of an African White DiamondNike Okundaye; whose zero formal educational background has shot into prominence amongst world’s leading academic professors

Original Headline:
“Meet Nigerian woman who has no formal education but lectures at Harvard, other top varsities”

Not many in her homeland appear to know about her unique story. But in other lands, especially Europe and America, she is a ‘goddess’ whose works are cherished by kings and presidents.

Without a doubt, the story of Nike Okundaye, the face behind the huge success story of Nike Arts Gallery, located in Lagos, Abuja and Osogbo, is as compelling as it is inspiring.
At a time when young Nigerians are in desperate need of a role model and inspiration in what self-belief and hard work can achieve, Nike’s rise from the status of an unknown village girl born into a seeming insignificant family in a rustic village to a globally celebrated icon would make an A-list inspirational novel.
Born in her native village of Ogidi, Ijumu Local Government Area, Kogi State, young Nike had high dreams about what type of future she wanted for herself. But her dreams were truncated even before they could take form when she lost her mother at age six. “I was six when my mother died,” she said with a tinge of sadness.
With the blow inflicted on her dreams by her mother’s death, young Nike was taken away to live with her grandmother. At the time, many believed that by going to live with an old woman, the young girl’s future had been compromised. But events have since proved that destiny may indeed have been at work in her journey through life.
She had her first contact with the world of arts through her grandmother, who at the time, was the leader of cloth weavers in the community.She said: “I come from a family of craftsmen. My parents were crafts people from Ogidi in Ijumu Local Government Area, Kogi State. My life as an artist is something that I was born with. I started weaving at the age of six. “I started with weaving different things, including adire, a traditional Yoruba hand-painted cloth design. As a matter of fact, I can say everything that had to do with textile. They taught me how to weave, using a little calabash. Gradually, I graduated to using bigger materials.”
Though Nike was six years old and barely able to tell the difference between her left and right hands, she already had a picture of the kind of future she wanted.“My grandmother was the head of all the weavers in our community. So, even as a little child, I already had a dream that I would own a big studio when I grew up. People came from different areas to buy the cloth from her. So, at that time, I already sensed that I might not have the opportunity to go to school.”
With the death of her mother, her grandmother, whose responsibility it was to look after her, did not pamper her in any form. She ensured that the virtue of hard work was instilled in Nike’s young, impressionable mind.
At that time, young Nike, unaware of the reason behind her great grandmother’s action, would cry, believing that she was being unnecessarily punished. “I would cry and lament because I thought she was wicked and punishing me. But today, I always thank her for inculcating in me the virtue of hard work. It was through her that I learnt that you must persevere in whatever you do and never give up on your dreams.”
Although she lost her mother at a time she needed her most, Nike believes that destiny might have been involved in the way her life played out, including her mother’s death. According to her, the mother was a very hard working young woman who would have spared nothing to ensure that her child got a good education up to the university level.
“Even at that young age, I knew that my mother was very hard working. And I am very sure that if she had not died, she would have trained me up to university level. My father was a farmer. He also did several other things like basket weaving to supplement his income. So, definitely, I would have been educated very well if my mother had not died. “But today, I look at my childhood and all that I went through as something designed by destiny. Who knows, maybe if my mother had not died and I had gone ahead to be educated, I may never have had the kind of opportunity that I have today and may never have risen to the level that I am.”
Nike never went to school to study art, the vocation that has brought her to global spotlight.
Vocational training in art was passed down to her by her great grandmother, the late Madam Ibikunle. Watching her great grandmother in the art of adire textile processing and helping her out, Nike walked up the line to become an expert in adire making, dyeing, weaving, painting and embroidery.
A product of the famous Osogbo Art Movement, Nike is today a world acclaimed artist and textile designer. She brings vivid imagination as well as a wealth of history and tradition into the production of adire. Her works are celebrated in major capitals of the world, with her designs exhibited in countries like the USA, Belgium, Germany, Japan and Italy, among others.
Nike spent the early part of her life in Osogbo, a recognised hotbed for art and culture in Nigeria. During her stay in Osogbo, her informal training was dominated by indigo and adire.
Nike’s romance with international exposure began in 1968 when she had an exhibition at the Goethe Institute in Lagos. Since then, she has grown to become a major name on the international art circuit. She is most outstanding in paintings and design of adire, beadwork and batik.
Among Nike’s proudest achievements was her invitation to Italy by the Italian government in 2000 to train young Nigerian sex workers on how to use their hands to engage in creative ventures. Her invitation was as a result of complaints to the Italian government by the young Nigerians that they left Nigeria in search of work, not knowing what they would be forced into. When Nike got to Italy, she taught them skills in craft making and many of the women became self-reliant in no time and stopped their old means of income.
In 2006, she was awarded one of the highest Italian national awards of merit by the government of the Republic of Italy in appreciation of her efforts in using art to address and solve the problems of Nigerian sex workers in Italy.
About two years ago, her adire painting was accepted at The Smithsonian, the world’s largest museum, located in Washington DC, US. Some of her works can be found among-st the collection of prominent personalities around the world, including the White House.
While little is known about Nike and her works across the country, two former presidents of the USA, Bill Clinton and George Bush, were so enthralled by her works at various times that they sought audience with her during their visits to Nigeria. Much more than just meeting and shaking hands with the two former presidents, it was Nike that decorated George Bush’s room in Abuja during his stay in the country.
According to Nike, these two incidents, were some of the best things to have happened to her.
She said: “When President Bill Clinton of the US visited Nigeria, he asked to meet the woman behind Nike Gallery, and I was taken to Abuja to meet him. It was the same thing with President George Bush. I was invited to meet him in Abuja during his visit to Nigeria. I was the one that decorated the room where the president stayed during the visit. What honour can be greater than this? I feel accomplished.”
As an accomplished artist, Nike has taught in several universities in the US, imparting the knowledge of her traditional adire designs in thousands of eager students from across the world. Her teaching exploits, she disclosed, have taken her to revered institutions like Harvard and Edmonton in Canada.
“I have lectured and held workshops in several noble institutions across the world. Some of the universities include Harvard, Columbus, Edmonton, Ohio and in Los Angeles, among others.
My first experience with teaching was in 1974. At that time, I taught people with doctoral degrees.”
Interestingly, all the education she had at the time, according to her, was the traditional education that parents pass onto their children.
“The type of education I had at the time was the education that is passed from parents to their children, not the education you get in a classroom. It was the practical type of education,” she said with a wry smile.
In 1983, she established the Nike Centre for Art and Culture in Osogbo, Osun State, where trainings are offered free of charge to Nigerians in various forms of arts. The centre was opened with 20 young girls who were picked from the streets and offered a new life in arts. So far, according to her, more than 3,000 young Nigerians have been trained at the centre.
The centre also admits undergraduate students from many universities in Nigeria for their industrial training programmes in textile design. The centre now admits students from Europe, Canada and the United States of America. International scholars and other researchers in traditional African art and culture also visit the centre from time to time for their research works on the processing of adire fabric and African traditional dyeing methods.
But she says the true story of the gallery started in her bedroom about 47 years ago.
“The gallery you see today actually started in my bedroom in 1968. In 2008, we opened the one in Lagos, and my husband was always the motivator. It was intended to give the young and old a platform to hear their voice.”
As she spoke, with signs of fulfillment splashed on her face, her husband, Reuben Okundaye, a retired commissioner of police, who had remained quiet since the interview started, suddenly joined in the conversation.
He said: “It is with practical education that she has continued to teach and impart knowledge into people with doctoral degrees and masters in Fine Art. Some of these people even come here under the cover of night to seek advice from her. Yet, some would say she is not educated.”
Speaking about another experience, Mr. Okundaye said he once had an encounter with a prominent Nigerian who told him that his wife would have been made a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria if she was educated. Surprised, he said he took a swipe at the man, telling him his wife was better educated than most of the people that were being flaunted.
He said: “You can imagine, I was discussing with one big man the other day and he said that my wife would have been made a minister if she was educated. I was angry and I asked him what he meant by that. Here is a woman who teaches people with doctoral degrees in higher institutions all over the world, yet you say she is not educated. But when the chips are down, they come to her for advice.”
Asked how she feels whenever she teaches in the classroom, Nike looked up as if relishing her achievements, and said: “I feel fulfilled. It was a very high sense of fulfillment. Imagine, a little girl who grew up in a rustic village without any sign of hope for a good future. Now I stand before PHD holders and teach them. I have been invited to meet presidents of foreign countries. I think I should be proud of my little achievements and be grateful to God.”
In spite of her seeming low education, she insists she has no regrets about not attending school. “I have no regrets at all. I give thanks to God for making all these things possible for me. I also thank my husband for standing by me all these years. I must confess that it was not easy coming this far. You will agree with me that for a woman to be recognised, she has to work three times harder than a man.”
Reechoing his wife’s position, Mr. Okundaye said Nike could not have had any regrets, having attained the heights sought by many across the world. “You asked if she has any regrets. How can that be possible? What kind of regret was she supposed to have with all her achievements? She is fulfilled in every sense of the word,” he enthused.
Expectedly, the couple was attracted to each other by their mutual love for arts. “I have always been an arts lover. I have some of her works. Perhaps, like you said, maybe it was destiny that brought us together.”
With a sterling career as a police officer, which saw him attaining the rank of Commissioner of Police and serving in more than four states, the couple has in the last 20 years of their coming together enjoyed the beauty of marriage and weathered the storm together.
Nike, who would be 64 in a couple of weeks, has also successfully created an identity for herself. Her most treasured clothes, she confessed, are adire fabrics. And it is not surprising that she cannot remember the last time she wore anything other than that.
“You may be right if you say I have created an identity for myself with my adire clothes. It is the only thing that I am known with. I don’t wear any other clothe, even when I travel out of the country,” she said.

Today, whenever this mystery which geographers and meteorologists of this world are still battling to comprehend makes appearance, a breathe of such new lease of life and hope which comes after a long battle with a life threatening siege is never in short supply in humans. At every point and time, people at different regions of life are faced with situations to which they look forward to a new dawn which should bear an anthem of help and miracle. Such expectations are uncommon and are likened to Rainbow experience! Nigeria; the most populous black nation in the world and the largest economy in Africa has been undergoing a dark moment-Fuel Scarcity, throwing its’ citizens and all resident in the country into operational coma. However, Rainbow has shown up as one man made a brave and timeless but strategic step to build the Ark of Hope to end this plague in his Country. Read below how Ifeany Uba is solving fuel scarcity problem in Nigeria. Could he really be a rainbow and what impact would this act of brevity have on his business economy should the scarcity continue?

Ifeanyi Ubaha loyalist of President Goodluck Jonathan and Director of Capital Oil and Gas has offered to supply 13 million litres of product to depots around the country”. Read details below:

Ubah made this known via a press statement issued few hours ago. The statement reads, ”On Saturday 16th May 2015, we received an SMS ordering the suspension of loading activities in all depots from Monday 18th May 2015.

”We are constrained at this point and have decided that two wrongs cannot make a right. We will not be part of this sabotage against our fatherland. Therefore from this minute, we shall take the risk of opening our facilities and commence swift loading and distribution of products Nationwide. Our facility has the capacity to load over 13 million litres of product before dawn. This comes to approximately 400 trucks of petroleum products. With this act, it is our belief that once again our citizens will begin to smile, return to normal family and work life.”

”We call on other petroleum marketers to follow suit and save our Nation from this impending economic and social crisis. This is a period that requires patriotism and service to fatherland. Let’s join hands to help our fellow citizens and save Nigeria. We also call on striking bodies to call off the strike action. Let us work together for the betterment of our people”.

”As we brief you this moment, our truck park, port reception facilities and our depot complex have been ordered open. We are ordering and resuming discharge of products from vessels at our berths. We have ordered our trucks to commence loading of products and move overnight to every state of the Federation.

TOP NEWS: READ WHAT SCIENTISTS SAID ABOUT “IMPACT OF DANCE” ON BONE & MUSCLE

#topnews.Reuters@innovation/www.influencewithaquinas.wordpress.com:

image

Moments of Innovation:
“Scientists measure the longterm effects of dancer’s movements on joints and muscle groups using inertial motion capture suits and movementmeasuring floors”. Sharon Reich reports.

Dancing is great exercise, but it also can put stress on the body and lead to joint diseases like osteoperosis. That’s why a group of Polish scientists are measuring the physical pressures dancers face while performing with the help of this motion capturing suit. Professor Robert Michnik and his team at Silesian University of Technology created the special ‘costume’ made of sensors. What makes the suit so unique is that when used with a floor that’s hooked up to a recording system it takes detailed measurements and can assess which skeletal and muscle bodies bare the heaviest loads when dancing. (SOUNDBITE) (Polish) SCIENTIST FROM SILESIAN UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, ROBERT MICHNIK, SAYING: “We gather together the information from these two systems, synchronise the measurement data and analyse them to find out how body position influences the size (of the load). From this studies, it can take place. In addition, we have already prepared a mathematical model allowing the calculation of the forces generated by the muscles and it allows you to show the reaction in the joints.” The results will help researchers determine the long term impact of force on a dancer’s joints. After all, the figure jumps that often look so light and elegant can actually be heavy burdens for the dancers bodies. With the help of the suit, the team determined that classical ballet dancers face the greatest strains on joints and bones. Measurements show that the vertical ground reaction force could reach up to ten times the weight of the dancer. Professional dancer Magdalena Wrazlowska, says she never realized the kind of pressure being put on her skeletal system. (SOUNDBITE) (Polish) DANCER FROM “SLASK” SONG AND DANCE ENSEMBLE, MAGDALENA WLAZLOWSKA, SAYING: “I’m not sure if I would have chosen this profession years ago when starting ballet school if I had known about these loads, whether to choose to take this path … but I think I would have.” Researchers hope their study results will help choreographers and trainers develop exercises and new movements that reduce the strain on their bodies.

THE SECRET PASTOR CHRIS TOLD ME MANY YEARS AGO

#inspireyoutoday/www.influencewithAquinas.wordpress.com:

Hahaha! Life is bigger than hitting the first billion. The lesser is in the greater. Work on being as always and not on having because with who and what you are, you will have everything. Success is not in the bank statement but in the Impact Statement of your life; that’s to say: leading a fulfilling life of purpose and destiny in Christ Jesus should be your focus. Do you know; the world is your Platform and your wealth is immeasurable because  the Lord has made you an ocean and access to wealth distribution. You must know that none of these realities can be analyzed by the financial codes and accounting softwares of this world, hence don’t limit your assessment to the records of “net worth” rating according to the world’s standards and platforms. Remember we are as rich as Papa God. However, if you want to know how big you are or can ever be, become a financier of God’s Kingdom Course!…inspired by teachings of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD.

READ WHAT REV. TOM AMENKHIENAN OF CHRIST EMBASSY SAID ON PULPIT AND PEOPLE’S REACTIONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

#inflencexpression/churchnews@InfluenceWitAq:RevTomSpeaksNw:

image

Christ Embassy has constantly remained a global media delight in Church events and news. The ministry with an ever widening scope and expansive programming around the world has hit the world’s center stage since decades, delivering its’ divine madate with extraordinary excellence, uncommon style, manifold results and undeniable legendary achievements; making the church a phenomenon amongst its’ kind. However, these realities are always characteristic with the Pastors and Leaders of the worldwide church; especially in how they live, think and communicate. Recently one of the church’s Senor pastors, an International Director: Church Ministry/Organization and a Member of the Central Executive Council-the highest leadership wing of the ministry took to the pulpit and had this to say during a teaching session with a congregation under the ministry. The deep truth from the astute, sagacious and handsome Pastor has provided deep insight for many who heard it firsthand and since its’ upload on social media platforms.  You too will get invigorated and revolutionised as you read this profound revelation from the seasoned Man of God:

The Bible says that God is a spirit (John 4:24). This means that the realm in which He operates is the realm of the spirit and to him , things in that realm are more real than things in the physical realm . For example if you needed a job and then having prayed , God said to you l have given you the job; He doesn’t need to put you in the physical company first, as proof that He’s actually given you the job. As far as He is concerned , it’s done , it’s a settled fact in the realm of the spirit. As a child of God, you are also a spirit being and the Lord expects you to function from the realm of the spirit . But of course the realm of the spirit is invisible to the human eyes and we need to look into it from our spirits, and praying in other tongues is of utmost advantage in this regard. As you pray in tongues , spiritual realities are unveiled to your spirit and you are able to see and relate with the real truth concerning any situation. Though Abraham’s body was physically dead , but he looked into that realm and saw his unborn generations (Romans 4:17). You also can see into the spirit realm and relate with your inheritance in Christ Jesus as you pray in tongues. Remember life is spiritual, everything you can see with your optical eyes and relate with physically came from the realm of the spirit. Operate from the realm of the spirit for you to win in life. That way, you will always dominate this physical world. For you to have a fruitful walk with the Lord , you have to learn to see the way He sees. You must see things first in the realm of the Spirit before they manifest in the physical.

A continent known for notorious media tabloids, yet it rocks my mind each time I see the enduring beauty characteristic with the people and the geography ofvthis Iconic pillar of hope for the modern world-Africa. Am sure if the values Africa are popular in the western media which occupies a principal spacemark in global information network, these revealing images could speak volumes to skeptics and critics. However, colours, cultural heritages, respect for family values, skills, talents, strength, adventures and resourcefulness are hallmarks you could find inside Africa. Shocking right? The world’s fashion runway in recent history has witnessed an uncommon perspective which has diversified its’ dynamism and aesthetics since the invasion of African Designs. Hmmmm…From the just concluded MOTI beach fashion week organized by Twin Image Concept at Takwa bay Island, Lagos Nigeria, enjoy a pictorial journey of colorful designs which are clear evident that Africa Inspires Fashion.

AN INSPIRATIONAL OCEAN

#Quotfortoday/InfluenceWithAquinas#Inspireyourworldeverydayhun:

image

I never knew there was anything more communicating and inspiring than the literature library until I spent some solitary moments in five long days at an ocean which is described as one of the biggest oceans in nature. Here are some of the wisdom I learnt during my adventure.  I trust the thoughts litered all over like crumbs of bread in this patchement would help you find insights that will inspire you beyond imagination like they did to me:
1. Convincing Human being is one of the most challenging things
2. Africans don’t see much, so little is much.
3. Some times people don’t move, so just move.
4. God fills everywhere; not necessarily his presence
5. Don’t ask for a hug if you can’t offer a kiss
6. Life on eargh is empty except we live it for Jesus
7. Nothing in this world is compared to the glory of meeting Jesus

Hello, welcome to inspire you on Influence. As always, you will learn, improve and enjoy your day today. I want to talk to you about something very simple but powerful and it is “Loving You“.

Hmmm!… what manner of love hath the father bestowed on us that we should be called the Sons of God: therefore, the world knoweth us not,because it knew him not: 1 John 3:1.

We live in a world where true value, knowledge and understanding exist in short supply. Often times, this situation makes it difficult for true perception, perspective and healthy opinions to come to bear in how we relate and share air. A circumstance of this kind in not very scarce ocassions, leave many; victms of shame, prisoners of hate, low self esteem and timid dispositions. A tell of how ugly, poor, deprived, stupid, foolish, uneducated, stubborn and wretched you are by some folks in your world, in Government, at school or elswhere, are conventional to your daily experience with little or no strength in your faith to fight the dire image depression your emotion battles with every now and then just to have you survive the mental junks you are saddled with from such uncivic environment. I got good news for you and you got to listen; They said: You are dirty and unclean, but Jesus said: You are cleansed through the words that I have spoken to you. They said: You are as poor as a church rat, but God said: I am the lord that giveth you power to get wealth. They said: You are a bastard, but God said: I am the father to the fatherless. They said: You are an illiterate with zero educational background,  but he said: You have an unction from a holy one and you know all things. They said: you have no class, but he said: You are a royal priesthood…!. They said: Your parents died by so so and so evil or disease, and by default you will die too, but he said: No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper, and he is the lord that healeth you. They said: You are nobody, and good for nothing, but he said: you are the Apple of his eyes. They said: You are a chronic Sinner-thief, lier, and prostitute with no future, but he said: You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Hey! What more do you want to hear that was said or being said about you which God has got no answer for? Absolutely nothing. Listen: you are the best that God has. Refuse to define you by public opinions.  Keep your head up, your shoulders high and your faith in Christ and live like the royalty you are. It makes no difference what your past is, because your today, and tomorrow is the next big thing to shout about. Just make up your mind to start Loving You! God bless you!

MY AFRICAN WOMAN: THE VALUE INSIDE MY CONTINENT

#UntoldStories/Influencewithaquinas.AfricaGotValues:

#influencewithaquinas:
…And she could go on to say yes even when the road seems rocky and stumpy. Defined by her beauty prowess not necessarily within the purview of her skin color, dark hair, and morphological archives but the great demeanor with which she conceals underlying tremor and enduring confidence with which she weathers fierce storms in patterns that beat meteorological intelligence, which makes her story readers delight and writers cove. When her convictions are on the front line, consequences of what the future brings are damned, yet when her audacity is questioned by impending jeopardy, she could only muster strength to survive another chance-a quality that speaks volume about her faith in living. Sometimes and very many times her opinions are mocked and her courage intimidated; an abominable scenario in other climes yet My African Woman is the only one who could stand in the midst of this paradox and still love again and again. She could be accused, battered, shattered and blackmailed, yet she is neither broken, perplexed nor ruffled…hmmmm! I have traveled both in my emotional sphere and geographical extensions to ponder on the science fiction and technological innovation that could have achieved this spectacle in human personage, yet all I could hear is : She is the pride of African Man, the true tourism potential, the real home builder and the center spread of sociological evolution. When you give her love, she turns your life into an unending spring of joy, when she finds confidence in your word, she makes your name a line of trust, and when you build your dream around her values, she turns your home into a haven of comfort. But why the tsunami of trouble associated with her punchlines in some scenarios? Is there anything called “good and bad in one“? Emphatic No! My African Woman is all in good and good in all. The odds exist because so many wallow in ignorance of her true lover. Her true lover is neither you nor the man that pays her prize. Her true lover is God! Therefore to comprehend this encyclopedia of biological complexity enshrined through divine artistry in human personage, her prince must not be a frog in ideologies but a royalty in thoughts and perspectives; having a rare quality of understanding about her makerGod Almighty to be able to tap into the unlimited favour characteristic with her destiny according to “Celestial Order“. This note is addressed to men who abuse girl-child, and turn their wives into gym articles to stop the violence. It is also a call for the world to see the beauty and divine diversities inside Africa and learn to appreciate the values embedded in this blessed continent. The Story of “My African Woman” is dedicated to Chioma Osueke-my fellow in the field of earth science on her Traditional Wedding as She begins a new journey of her life as a true African Woman ready to shapen her world with her values.

DETAILS OF THE BOOK
The book “Nigerian Top Executives in the Design, Printing & Publishing Industry” contains comprehensive biographies of the top 10% highestranked executives of Nigeria’s design, printing & publishing industry. Inclusion in the bibliography was determined according to a unique and objective criteria that consisted of a combination of total number of employees managed and visibility in international business networks. The serious academic research about business achievements makes this book a worldrenowned authority with the absolute power to honor performance and recognize excellence in the industry. As the result of a comprehensive research exercise, a number of top executives were selected for inclusion in the directory. These individuals were identified as personifying passion, courage, commitment, success, excellence and spirit. This book represents an honor of championship and recognizes the struggles endured to ascend to the top, especially by those “silent” hard working people who contributed to the advancement of their companies and to the people of Nigeria. In order to compile this work, a few million biographies were carefully analyzed. All biographies originated from public sources and were made public by the people themselves. Due to the fact that only a small fragment of Nigerian business leaders can be included in a directory of this nature, a strict selection criteria was meticulously applied and there were no exceptions. While every effort has been made to ensure the executives that have made a difference to Nigeria’s design, printing & publishing industry have been addressed, there is a distinct possibility that the list of people included in this book is not complete, as there will always be great business leaders who strictly refrain from publishing information about themselves. It is also possible that some of the data sources employed were outdated or even inaccurate. As such, while the book contains the best information that could be found in public sources at the time of the research, it remains far from perfect. The intention is to continue to publish this directory on an annual basis in order to gradually increase the quality and accuracy of the material contained within it. A large number of copies of the book will be provided to governmental institutions and public administration, universities and colleges, important associations and to media archives. Above all, as this unique book contains biographies of top Nigerian executives who hold precise positions in individual companies, it is deemed that the information will be of use to both professionals and the general public. Nigeria’s economy can be strengthened through stronger integration of key executives in certain industries. This book represents a small but significant contribution to the achievement of this objective.

#influencewithaquinas
Can I meet you?

Monic Zunny
I am Monica Zunny Abu. I have been married to Pastor Zunny Abu for 13 years and our union is blessed with two lovely children. I am a member of Christ Embassy; where I have been serving God for 24 years till now. I graduated from Ekpoma University with a degree in Religious Studies & Philosophy in 1995 and Had my Master’s degree in International Law & Diplomacy from University of Lagos in 2001. Though, I have had a thriving career in some organizations but currently, I am the Founder/President of Positive Marriage International Initiative-an NGO with a mandate of helping women experience fulfillment in marriage through God’s word.

#influencewithaquinas
I am just wondering what kind of educational background a woman of your repute would have. can you share the information?

Monica Zunny
Who is listening…Ooops! To share just a few, first between 1999 – Mid 2004 I was a Manager at Technology Distribution Ltd where my key roles were: Coordinating the activities of the branch office/company’s central warehouse. Implementation and entrenching of company policy and also formulating operational procedures in the maintenance of inventory and stock management and personnel management. Distributing stocks to Branches and Business partners on Information Technology brands/items. Providing updates on product data covering APC, HP, EPSON, IBM, Microsoft and other brands in the company list of product.

Moving on, by August 2004, I moved to Conceige2 Ltd as a Senior Manager. Here, my roles were: General administration of the company’s affairs. Customer relations, Marketing and relationship management as well as accounts management. Implementation of company’s policies and ensuring that company procedures are followed in the day to day operations until 2007.

Finally, an opening came at Global Plus Publishing (LLC). Here I moved from one role to another as the work responsibility demanded on my expertise. First as a pioneer manager, later became Head of Client Service, Head of Production of Operations, Head of Purchasing and Outsourcing, Head of Corporate Services and finally climbed to the height of Head of International operations; a position that saw my career skyrocket rapidly. As the head of International Operations, not until I resigned, I had a very hectic and expansive travel and work scope which included: sourcing for print partners across the globe to execute huge client projects in locations/outsource our immediate press production. Responsible for negotiation and award of print contract to partner presses, overseeing production in several locations including India, Dubai, South Africa, Ethiopia, Senegal, United States of America, Belarus, Germany and several other locations. I had to travel to some of these locations to inspect the facility and machinery of the presses before the project was embarked on. Also worked with the banks to perfect the Letter of Credits for these offshore projects. Working with critical lead time and sensitive timelines to ensure timely production and shipment as payments were based on the sighting of bill of lading. In co-ordinating these projects we worked with strict quality deliverables as the universal standards of the products had to be met even though production was done across several continents. In addition to the projects, I also managed the production of the materials on a monthly basis in different locations. The monthly production covered freight to several locations; an example is our production hub in Hungary which covered over twelve translations shipped to fifteen different countries which meant scaling the language barrier to relate with the staff in some of those countries and real time tracking to manage the freight lead time to ensure the materials are received as at when due. To effectively manage the international operations I had the responsibility to produce the documents guiding the operations via the creation of Standard Operating Procedures and operational flow.

#influencewithaquinas
So amazed about such a profound career prowess you have here. Oh my God! Ok were there reasons for your resignation?

Monica Zunny
On the negative, not at all. But you see apart from preaching the gospel and working, I have a family, a fast growing music Career and a mission for women which place huge demands on my time. Lips sealed!

#influencewithaquinas
looking at your imposing resume, are there some exceptional trainings that helped you to attain this height?

Monica Zunny
Yes there are. I have attended several book fair, training and seminars such as Germany Book Fair, Graph Expo-Chicago U.S.A (all in 2013), Graphics of the America(s),2011-Miami Florida U.S.A, Lagos Business School (Inventory Management), 2001, Heidelberg, Dubai-executive Session, 2008, Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA) London (documentation Management/Retention), 2009 and currently undergoing an online course on Emotional Intelligence at Case Western University, U.S.A.

#influencewithaquinas
You are multifaced, first you had a huge professional work career, you are a pastor, you are gospel music minister and youyou are the president of Positive Marriage International Initiative. Why doing music and also running an NGO sequel to such height in your profession?

Monica Zunny
Hahaha…we go to school to read and write and what you do with that is the value. First, going to school helped to develop my mind. Then working in corporate organizations took me to a depth in human relations which form an integral part of the work tool for my current pursuit. Although music has been part of my life; especially having been a choir member for over 20 years and also a choir leader in Christ Embassy at different times and locations. Some of the songs in my recent Album were written some 15 years ago. Now that tells you the journey so far in that regard. However, God has guided me to lead a mission that would help women have and make their marriages work for them and not against them hence the NGO. The NGO through God’s word provides women with profound insights into God’s purpose for marriage and practical steps on how to activate the values thereof in their favor. This it achieves through forums, conferences, seminars, mentorship programs, talk shows, empowerment platforms and so much more. Since inception, doors have been opening across the globe and several forums and much more have been held with women of all ages, groups, tribe, colors and spheres of life in over 12 countries of the world and still counting. Testimonies of changed lives, restored homes and marriages abound, confirming the overflowing grace of God with us. I need to let you know that Monica Zunny is a brand with multiple service points. The music, the NGO and much more are part of the service points and the brand is aspiring a global page which you could see reflected in our culture of excellence and scope.

#influencewithaquinas
Talk about your music

Monica Zunny
Currently I have an Album titled Forgiveness. It is a 7 track album and two videos have been shot already from same. The videos on “one life to live” and “forgiveness” were shot in Dallax Texas, United States. The album is currently penetrating some major international markets including US and Europe and the videos are also enjoying Airplays across Major Satellite and Cable TV channels, online streaming and downloads. All these in one square, would see my music spanning multiracial borders and territories.

#influencewithaquinas
Hearing your music; particularly the recent album and watching your videos, one could imagine if you are really an African. Why did you put so much quality into your music in a market with little or no security against piracy?

Monica Zunny
Well I did say to you that Monica Zunny is an aspiring global brand with the consciousness of international standards. I don’t intend to compromise my ethics and values for our consistent culture of excellence across all our products, service and operations irrespective of inflations and corruptions in the world. I am a Christian and as a daughter of the monarch of the Universe (God)-the father of excellence, he is my source, my sufficiency and The Holy Spirit is my Competitive advantage even though I don’t consider competition because of the clime I come from (lineage of Abraham). I just couldn’t be less than I am and couldn’t stop being much more. I remember whilst working on my album and videos, a young lady said to me: Ma, with how much quality and resources you are putting into these projects, I don’t think Nigerian market is your target. Then I smiled and said: that is truly the idea. The music is for the whole world because I am a global brand in progress; which must not be anything less than the best by all standards. you need to know that also all my songs are testimonies of real encounter with God and are originally written and composed by me. I had written and performed original songs for Cadbury Plc at their “women’s day program” in 2006 and “Nigerian Air force Primary School 50th Anniversary”. I am also on LoveWorld Music and Arts Ministry (LMAM) as an Artiste.

#influencewithaquinas
How much has your music been accepted?

Monica Zunny
Well like I said before, I am a brand. Though the brand is growing but because of the grace of God and the vision we bear, the music is penetrating rapidly into America, Europe, Africa, Asia, UK and much more. the videos have also received some celebrity endorsements from some of the foremost gospel music stars including Sinach. I am also monitoring the Airplays and online streaming and threads, and the feedback is enormous and indicative of the explosive high rise ahead of us. I have been on some radio and Cable TV shows for interviews on this subject and also as a relationship consultant on Metro woman-a major talk show program on LoveWorld Plus (Cable TV). All of these form part of how much the music is gaining wide acceptance into the global markets and niches’.

#influencwewithaquinas
how do you cope with your very busy career schedules, ministry and running your family and how does your husband see this?

Monica Zunny
first I have a man who’s more than a diamond to me- Pastor Zunny Abu. he is a Zonal Pastor in Christ Embassy and a Successful International Entrepreneur. interestingly, he is the first believer in my music vision and other things around me. I get all of his supports and understanding. then I have a distinct structure with my team and everyone around me to ensure I have a seamless flow in my operations. you know plus my very expansive travel schedules, I try to make all these work together for the uninterrupted growth of Monica Zunny, yet giving equal and balanced attention to my family which is my haven of joy. Through it all, the grace and wisdom of God have been abundant.

#influencewithaquinas
What has been the challenges?

Monica Zunny
amazingly, there has been none at this time because the Holy Spirit has helped me to plan my life and journey. the teaching and training which I receive from My life coach- Rev. Chris Oyakhilome PhD has put me ahead in life where I know how to deal with every circumstance. Moreover, all that I do are not engineered by desperation or inordinate quest but they are born out of clear cut purpose and divine destiny. for every dream, there must be a time of sacrifice and sowing which I am at. this is to say: at the end, the statement will worth the premium.

#influencewithaquinas
Who’s your role model?

Monica Zunny
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD. I have also enjoyed the music of Shirley Ceaser and Helen Baylor maybe because we do the same genre of music.

#influencewihaquinas
What can you say about collaborating with Secular Artistes?

Monica Zunny
No plan, wish or dream for that though, I am a minister but for anyone who does, if it is for the purpose of winning them to the Kingdom of God, then it is ok otherwise no need for that.

#influencewithaquinas
What are your future plans?

Monica Zunny
Fulfilling all that God has called me to do.

#influencewithaquinas
Any word of encouragement to young people?

Monica Zunny
Make hard work part of your life. Your hands must find something doing which the lord will bless. have faith in God and never give up on your dream. most of all, you must be born again in Christ Jesus otherwise it may not go too great. God bless you and all that you set your heart to do in Jesus name!

WHAT THE JEWS THOUGHT

image

#influencewithaquinas
What did the Jews think when they demanded for the life of Jesus? And what about the Pilate? I was thinking that the men who executed this man could have had a field day. Anyway, does it matter? Afterall  he said he is the same with God, and if truly he is, let him save himself. He had all the power in his hand beyond this world to destroy everyone who had called for his arrest and killing, yet he never did. And then I asked why? He bore the guilt, sin and shame for no cause of his, and yet he was executed. He took pain and blackmail in defence of a people who didn’t deserve life, yet he was murdered by the same.  However, what the Jews, the Pilate and the Field Men thought never mattered because you mattered the most. On that Cross, he saw your healing, your prosperity, your victory, your future, your destiny and your salvation. If anything else mattered, it could have been the lies told, the excruciating pain, the unexplainable torture and the set death. But he said: YOU are the only thing that mattered. If he did this just for you, the big question is : have you loved him? Have you accepted his timeless sacrifice? He suffered so that you wouldn’t, he was broken so that you won’t hurt again, and he died so that you will live. Are you Born-Again? If you are not, simply pray this prayer: Lord Jesus, I acknowledge and believe the sacrifice of your life for me on the Cross, Come into my heart today and be the Lord and Saviour of my Soul. I declare that I am Born Again. Thank you for saving me, in Jesus Name. Write us  to share your testimony if you just prayed that prayer. Congratulation because now you are Born Again!

#influencewithaquinas:
Christ Embassy; also known as Believer’s LoveWorld Nation is set to host the biggest Festival of Music and Arts and the first of its’ kind in the world since human history. The first announcement which went viral on various media platforms in the world was made by the President of the worldwide ministry-Rev. Chris Oyakhilome PhD some time in 2014 during his usual global communion service. According to the President, the Premier Edition scheduled for 2426th April, 2015 at the Nasrec Expo Centre, Johannesburg South Africa will be a Landmark with nothing ever in this world compared to it. In line with the  standard of The Excellent Preacher , some of the best entertainment phenomena, media content genius and event strategists in the world have been onboard to deliver in the capacity of the word of the  Man of God. Amongst the Central planning Committee are: Pastor Ose Oyakhilome, Pastor Siji Dara, Pastor Biodun Lawal, Evangelist Katy, etc. The event which will become an annual rendezvous will be lavished with contents which beat the imagination of the world.

The super publicized event will feature some of the greatest music legends in the world such as Multiple Award Winning singers: Sinach, Frank Edwards, Chris Shalom, Joe Praise, Eben, Buchi, etc. More to the feel of the moment is the boom the economy of the host nation would experience; especially the hospitality, aviation, media and food industries as a result of the expansive exposure of the country to the dynamic tourism and super economic potentials accompanying the event. President Zuma and the entire nation of South Africa could be full of excitement about being most privileged to have the choicest environment to host an event with a global attendance and live broadcast capacity which no country in the world has ever had beyond football event.

…AND FLY AWAY: DR. ROBERT SCHULLER PASSES ON TO GLORY

image

#influencewithaquinas
Today across the world, there is a wave of sober and tears of hope as one of God’s foremost Legends, and Classical hero of faith joins the saints in heaven to enjoy eternal rest following a fulfilled life of purpose, destiny and heavenly order. Dr. Robert Schuller inspired multiple millions of people and generations of young, old and famous ministers of the gospel around the world through his life, ministry and testimonies. A Pastor, Teacher, Preacher, Tele-Evangelist and Author of the best seller What Happens to Good People When Bad Things Happen whose profound faith in the gospel led to weathering fierce storms, concealing with great demeanor; tornados and cyclones that confront our christian faith in defence of the truth about the divinity of Jesus Christ. With the insights he shared on the hallway of his teachings and parchments, he inspired hope and communicated audacity to face the odd. The Acts of Apostles has a place for this envelop of divine personage in human fashion. His life and existence was an exclusive expression of Celestial  Lustre and Unending Rendezvous of Gracious Evolution. Today the world is torn between saying a warmth goodbye and letting the lurking tears flow not for any pain but in appreciation of a life selflessly spent to build complex dynamos of gospel generations. According to our Blog Codes of Reference here on influencewithaquinas, we name you a “Classical Legend of Faith”. Good Night Robert!

DR. GOODLUCK JONATHAN NAMED “INFLUENCE PREMIER LEGEND OF HOPE”

image image

#influencewithaquinas:

I lifted my pen at different times to clothe my thoughts with vocabularies which could give profound insights to my comprehension about this spectacle having one head, two hands, two legs and a body but my emotions hampered my composure until this time. I had thought that phantoms, escalades, Cadillacs, and other supersonic figures exist only in synthetic stereotypes until the dawn of an Africa’s foremost Legend. Like a candle in a cold night he generated warmth to a world without wall. Though having a mass of neighbours, He lived on a lonely broad street because his ambitions didn’t worth nuisance to already pressured residents. He choose a course of his own even when there were multiple counselors. He was not a perfect man but he created perfection. He paced so fast on the highway of grace where his father never had a name. He had a dream but no interpreter, he had a vision but had no true followers. He inherited a dying child; bitten by chronic greed, pathological lies, genetic hatred and endemic ideologies, yet in his strive to offer life, his clarity of purpose, civic methodology and hopeful gentleness towards achieving a durable life for his patient (Nigeria) was crucified on the alter of induced violence, circumstantial hatred and untimely displeasure owing to unraveled Agenda. He employed civility, it was termed weakness, he eschewed violent work flow, he was called clueless, He introduced technology to improve professionalism as a basement complex to deflect the arsenals of historic corruption, he was called a fool, he pursued due process and ethical values, he was told to use carrot stick yet democracy is loved. He weathered the most fierce storms for undeserving clime yet he could not get a jacket in a cold winter. He reached out for external alliance common to his believe in commonwealth culture at the critical stage of epidemic and terror insurgence, his hope was dashed, yet the benefactors called him idiot until God proved the strong wrong. He fought fraternal forces of clandestine interests which have hindered the survival of a common man in the country where the low class could not see, his head was demanded on the threshold of propaganda to ensure the eclipse of unveiling the hidden agenda behind the undefined mantra “Change”. He had a voice, a blueprint, weapons, alternatives and sensitive opinions to exile his ambush but choose to walk away in fulfilment of his words-the header of his uncommon integrity. In congratulating the very element dotted with unresolved controversial input to the conflicts on his democratic journey, he has personified humour, excellence, loyalty, rare wisdom, integrity, simplicity, vigor, timeless quality of heart and ageless finesse in the fashion of a heroic ideology! On this note, following the assessment of our Blog Culture Codes of Reference, today 1st of April 2015, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GCFR) is inducted into “Influence Hall of Fame” as “Influence Premier Legend of Hope“. By this, His life and Acts would have 31st April as a commemorative day tagged “Jonathan’s Landmark ” every year on this blog.

ELECTION IN NIGERIA; AS CELEBRITY GOSPEL MUSIC ARTISTE CAST HIS VOTE

image

#nigeriadecides2015
As Nigeria; the most populous black nation in the world and the Largest economy in Africa go on electing new political government to steer the boat of its leadership for the next four years, many have gone to various polling units across the states of the blessed country to cast their votes; which they believe is their voice to be heard and access into a fulfilling destiny as a nation. In this guise, a celebrity gospel music artiste; Josh Ajakaye-crooner of jomiloju video and who recently launched his album-The Bread Winner and Unveiled His Record Label-Cedartone Concept Entertainment Ltd-also joined the list of other Social Figures to demonstrate his love for his country which he views as his civic role and patriotic responsibility. Speaking to us over a telephone conversation, Josh believes that Nigeria would eventually emerge amongst the leading economies in the world if right leadership choice is made by citizens and elections carried out with civic concern and global ideology!

IS IN GOD’S HAND

image

#influencewithaquinas
True nationhood evolves when polity, governance and ideologies exchange romance with divine insight. God is the one who gives true leaders to nations. The bible is replete with this singular but absolute truth. John chapter 1:1-5 reveals a puzzling insight: everything in the world was made by God’s word. Nothing ever came out as life or existence without the creative power of God’s word. Now that tells you of the efficacy of the word of God. The word is life and light. Life indicates existence or a state of being, and Light gives direction-synonymous with leadership. If the word gives life and direction, that means “being and leading” can only become successful by seeking God. The world in their foolishness have made emotional intelligence a guide to their endeavours which has never offered them any satisfaction and would never until the end of this age. When a nation seeks leadership on the basis of religion, ethnicity, clique’ and other irrelevant indices, what they get as dividends are displeasure, disappointment, failures, unfulfillment and regrets. On the other hand, time and space without distractions must be given to rebuild Jerusalem after all her assault. The character of followers is far more important than that of their leader in the course of choosing and desiring a true leader. People get leaders that they deserve. It makes no difference what contrasting opinion you hold to this. The truth must be told and heard for a lasting change to occur. A change without proposals of its’ dynamics, scope, direction, objectives, purpose and vision, is only a disaster in disguise; no matter the fan base of its’ campaign. Miracles are different from magics. A criminal can not take the wheel on a broad day light without flagging his clearance pass. And his ideologies are the real antecedents to his newness, which could only become acceptable in the process and time of renewal and not through a sudden pursuit for a responsibility. A people must X-ray the motives of who champions their course and relate it to the prevailing character before continuing as one accord because history is not irrelevant. A lizard in your country can never become an alligator in a foreign land. God made humans and the only one who can lead them must be the one who stands on the same platform of God and understands God’s purpose for them otherwise such a leader would turn the people into scavengers. I can go on but I have to rest my pen for now until next time…NB: the picture above is an illustration with no undertone.

RESULT, NOT EFFORT

RESULT, NOT EFFORT!
a signature of excellence

“Oh I can’t understand how I worked so hard all day and nightlong to get this report compiled only to get a tongue lashing remarks from my boss”…”I wash the clothes, shepherds the children, keep the home and do all the dirty chores, yet all I get from you is discredit, blame and displeasure”. These and many more are regular and conventional exclamatory coinages you could hear every day at home, offices, church, etc relating to one issue or another as expressions of efforts injected into a given task performed or a delegated assignment carried out. Over the years, I have evaluated this scenario to comprehend the undertone and here is my finding: in life, no one gets credit for “TRYING”. The existence of life is time bound and the fulfillment of the obligatory responsibility of its’ players (mankind and others) has a timeline. Therefore, what we see is a fast and furious world with high tech system that gives no room for explanations of failure (excuse) nor accommodates reasons for non-performance. Did you know that there are no medals and accolades for aiming at the target anywhere, neither is there hall of fame for attempts. The order is get the job done, hit the target, and bring home the trophy! But why? After all my efforts? My dear, efforts is unsafe for a world with no mercy seat from time and a system with fast and furious ideology. Is not time to agonize or promote campaign for hate awareness. What you have not come to term with is this: action rules the world and result gets the job done. No one gets celebrated for trying because failures also try. The difference between effort and result is SUCCESS! He loves you and she adores you though! But your effort messed the game. Their loyalty remains extinct until your result shows up; make peace with this to learn the rules of the game. Result has the answer but effort gives explanation. Get the job done; it is “Result, Not Effort”!

A LETTER OF COMFORT

image

image

#influencewithaquinas
Storms and winds do not have preventions but finding peace in their midst is a sure comfort when you sail the boat of faith. Tears are good but trust in God is stronger. Crisis of life may not bring warnings prior to their visits but hope, courage and perseverance through God’s word will hold your character through the time. Have you been through pains, betrayal, hurts and agony and giving up becomes your easy way out? help is here! Has your body been ravaged by sickness and the excruciating horror has taught you that to die is the miracle you need? There’s healing for you today even as you read this! Were you born into slavery, abject poverty, penury and great impoverishment and all you know about Life and God is injustice, unfairness and wickedness? Hey before you conclude, God has another plan for you! Have you gone through severe terrors of lack, hunger, deprivation and hopelessness, and you dreamt of helping your family smile some day, which never came because unplanned death of your parents dashed the only hope you ever muttered which is survival? Wipe your tears, suicide is not an option for there is a brighter day now for you! Has your day gone so gloomy and from sadness to gross failures and it seems as though rejection and shame are your hallmarks? Is there a God in heaven? Sweetheart, he sees your tears  and feels your pains! Were you born out of illegitimacy or with some dysfunctions that have turned you into a negative spectacle; having no self esteem and zero confidence? But moses was a great achiever even with similar resume! Through it all, I have seen all these and more dire circumstances changed. Cheer up, don’t be weary, crushed or crumbled! He is your strength, your comfort and your Ebenezer! Get to the word and keep your declaration of faith, for your victory is here! Halleluia!!!

MAC JANE ACCORDING TO MY WORLD

#influencewithaquinas

…putting a call across to her to get some moments of chat was an epic story and much more a daytime dream to sit right before her very face to share a lunch. But in a world without wall, my imagination rocked wild not because some things were awkward or bizarre but that we shared such closeness from the very distance of our existence hinged on the connect of our career, dreams, ambitions, and aspirations, cut our circle into a triangle (family scenario); parodic you mean?. Though she has principles but we share practise, she has vocations but we share conviction. Walking her from radio shows I played her host to multiple warmth welcome in hope bearing hugs and smart handshakes at some fellowship meetings, I saw friendship without wall. She is not the lady at the bowling centre or the prom fiesta (don’t wonder), but the questions of destiny have contended with my genuine intentions of enlisting this super woman into my “Influence Hall of Fame”, (don’t ask to find out). I have known friends and family all my life in so spectacular coinages to grasp in great expanse the dynamics of relationship but what I share with this classic is a figure with a different class. Becoming more curious in my amazement, the picture got real on who she really is and what I treasured and treasure in this rising Idol at the dawn of “Open Secret“-a phrase with multidimensional controversies yet became a basement to the most profound explanation of the subject of true friendship since human history in my existence crafted by this smart pen in a she-factor. Friends are not really those around us or who serve our material needs as viewed globally. Friends are those; though our worlds may be separate but our connections are the same, our dreams and beliefs may differ but our aspirations are common, Our mutual benefits may be zero but our corporate agenda undivided, our connect may beep green light but we reflect unbending rays hoping that what matters most is not our personal interests but our successes in our separate pursuits which could become a spectacle for commonwealth, making us true one accord in diverse spheres. Just before you get lost in my conversation, pause awhile and wonder whose name and personality bear this resume! Her name is Mac Jane Chukwu; a public speaker, women advocate, an author of two great books-Open Secret & My Father’s Girl Friend, a creative blog host and born-again christian. Mac Jane is growing from her little dream of becoming a woman whose husband-in-wait would build his world around (i hope she throws back memories about this on that lunch day after fellowship @ NYSC camp) to becoming an iconic tower of hope to many around the world who have been inspired and changed through her Tower of Hope Tea Club foundation and collections of articles, poems and books. She fights the obvious threats to confronting the most dreaded challenge to prove the possibility of “a life without limits” in all her endeavours. In her person, Mac Jane possesses a tender appearing that is synonymous with Jelly Fish yet with great demeanor she conceals great quakes and with unthinkable audacity parallel to her genetic assemblage, she weathers fierce storms in complex seasons making her a “Floral Legend”. Over and over , I am overwhelmed and untired in and with inspiration to articulate and clothe my thoughts with words streamed through ball pen or vocal chord about Mac Jane-An Ideal Picture of My Girl Friend! Heaven is in rejoice that the earth is witnessing this heroic movement…

MY 20 MINUTES WITH DE-OLA; THE WOMAN YOU WANT TO KNOW

image

As I walked into the lobby of suite 30/31 at the Top floor of Crossway Building; a popping structure that play host to Core Global Services Limited; a thriving world class training and engineering outfit in Lagos Nigeria; surprisingly operated by this super icon about to share with us, the ambience that attended to my connect and the superlative gesture from the front desk assistant could not stop beating my heart. My imagination rocked even hyper when I finally settled, sitting right before this woman whom in my inclination, should be a sitting CEO but chose to keep it cool and calm. Her beauty, slender and sleek model appearing was another spectacle to behold and much more the smiles and soft-spoken voice characteristic with her person, increased my curiosity to find out the secret of this Stage Diva, Song Bird, Lyrical Epistle and Rising Super Icon. She is a young mother of two pretty daughters and happily married to a man she refers to as her world. Ladies and Gentlemen, in this 20 minutes hot conversation, meet our guest: DEOLA as she shares her life, her growing music career and her success!

#influencewithaquinas
Let’s meet you!

DE-OLA
I am Adeola Debisi Onyinbo and my stage name is DE OLA. I am married with two kids. I am from Ogun state. I studied Mass Communication  and majored in Public Administration from Olabisi Onabanjo University.

#influencewithaquinas
You are the CEO of Core Global Services Limited! But why journey into music?

DEOLA
I started singing since the age of 14 as a non christian from Muslim background. Then, I was so in love with Celine classics. However, as i progressed in my growth, things began to change. By second year in the university, I got born again at the Believers’ Love world Campus Fellowship and thereafter my love  for singing led me to joining the choir. In the event of time, there was a spectacular worship experience at one of the services we had in church. During the session, by prophecy, the pastor announced me as the choir coordinator and that was in 2005. At the time, the membership strength of the choir was 18, but when i assumed the leadership role and by the grace of God, our membership grew from 18- 54 within a short time. This milestone opened up a higher role which was to head the entire creative and performing arts units of the fellowship as the director of music. Still on this endless journey, i graduated from school and returned back to Lagos-my primary base. Upon my return, i started attending a Christ embassy church where I was committed as a choir member. Within one year, I became a choir leader, and much more, in that same year I became the group director till date leading over 80 choir members across 13 church branches that make up the group under zone 1 in Lagos region of the ministry.

#influencewithaquinas
As a CEO, how do you cope with your work, family and rising music career?

DEOLA
There is no course without a challenge. For me, though the journey has been hectic but i have an understanding husband who makes things easier for me even though his schedules are also tight as an Engineer. But, interestingly running my family and Core Global Services Ltd has also helped to position me in every class and standard to build a very successful anticipated music signature in global perspective. By that; I mean the travelling experience from the usual routine, makes the whole process worthwhile and adventurous for me!

#influencewithaquinas
What inspires your Music?

DEOLA
I get my inspirations from the Holy Spirit-my teacher mostly in the place of fellowship. Then during rehearsals and Wednesday services in church. At other times when I am going through some difficult moments, as I meditate on God’s word, songs pour into my heart.

#influencewithaquinas
I am in the know that you have couple of songs such as The Hit song “I Can See, His name is Jesus, Help is Here”, including an album which you have done in some collaborations, but you still should have personal singles or album(s) and what are they?

DE-OLA
Yea, you are right! No personal album yet although i will be dropping my first personal album by September this year. However, my singles  are “something about the name of Jesus, I salute-a theme song for love world publishing, Forever which just dropped few days ago and superstars soundtrack for Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 1 award, 2014.

#influencewithaquinas
Your milestone Success in Music Affairs?

DE-OLA
First the first class privilege of ministering on some major Global Ministry Conferences of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD and Also leading my group church choir to perform live on the biggest stage in the world-Loveworld Convocation Arena, Lagos Nigeria at the most watched Global Music Event- International Music Concert (IMC); a bi-annual music concert that features some of the world’s foremost music Legends and transmitted across major satellite, cable, terrestrial and Online TV platforms around the world spanning more than 5 continents in global audience reach, organized by Christ Embassy. Finally, the biggest shocker which is; being enlisted into the Presidential Hip Pop Girls group- a special envoy for Pastor Chris billed to perform with a first class privilege at the forthcoming Loveworld Festival of Music and Arts-the greatest music and arts festival on earth at this time in Johannesburg South Africa scheduled to hold in April this year.

#influencewithaquinas
Who is your role model?

DE-OLA
My Pastor, Teacher, Mentor and Life Coach-Rev. Chris Oyakhilome PhD is my Role Model. His life, teachings and successes inspire me beyond this world. Then also in the industry, The Sinach and Eben of This world (age) make me strive for the best ahead!

#influencewithaquinas
Future plans?

DEOLA
Shooting a video with no comparison, doing a song in tongues and owning the biggest live band in the world is what I dream of.

#influencewithaquinas
Your treasured travel and tour experience?

DE-OLA
My visits to US, Dubai and South Africa in recent times.

#influencewithaquinas
Any word of inspiration and encouragement to young people?

DE-OLA
Position your life through rich fellowship with the holy ghost. Follow the leading and the guidance of the holy spirit. He is the one that connects the right people to you. Look inside and never say; you don’t have a help. Be in choir and be rooted in Gods word.
