If we had ever thought of a wonder in bodily form, you are a perfect script. If we had ever known a gem or precious stone, your life is more than a living proof. If we had ever seen integrity and super-intelligence at work, you are a total package of such reality.

The path you have chosen is too bravery to be lived simply in the manner you demonstrate it. The content of your person tells so such about the presence and influence that qualifies the man in you. We have witnessed life changing moments in what we do by simply reading and implementing the rare thoughts you communicate, and all we can say is God is so awesome.

There are men, but there are sent men. You are among such class of being God sent to do uncommon things in this generation. We are not in confusion about the place you are headed because the signs you bear are too far strange to the likes of this world. You have taught us that good news sells and nothing compares to that.

You have been accused, blamed, misinterpreted and much more, but your consistency, speed, accuracy, tenacity, commitment and unwavering reaffirmation to this course of using online platform to foster healthy information particularly to the glory of the father and the church, bring tears down all our faces.

You are a man of honour, wisdom, faith and conviction. Through you and this platform you gave to the world, hundreds of thousands are constantly blessed and inspired always, around the world.

From the heart of Africa ‘Nigeria’ to Australia, America, Asia, Europe and Pacific, somebody’s life and destiny has been altered for good because you took the pain when everyone was at funfair and sleeping and fasted from sleep and comfort to ensure you scripted those precious thoughts from the Holy Spirit, networked our global team to research and gather those lifting and informative news that brought hope to a world dominated by dilapidating media contents.

In a little over a year, over 1 Million people across 135 countries in 6 continents are reached by IWAB, creating opportunity for each of us to be part of this global fighting force in defense of the truth of the gospel and impact of the church.

On this day, we stand in awe of who you are and what you do. We celebrate the goodness, grace, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, favour and glory of God upon, and at work in your life. We are excited and most happy that you were born this day. You are truly a LEGEND and we say Happy Birthday Sir (Aquinas) our DIAMOND.

Life seems to be taking a different dimension for the Afro Centric Gospel MC ‘Emmy Icon’, but this time around, it is neither Owambe (a Yoruba Parlance For Party) nor anchoring his 301 events since his appearance on the Nigerian Entertainment Scene. We are talking about that kind of change that is not synonymous with a political mantra, but the kind that changes a man’s Title and Lifestyle. You will not hear it from my mouth,…no advert payment yet. However, this ‘Microphone Prowess’ with Prolific Oratory Artistry was spotted at an event recently somewhere Lagos Nigeria, and this picture poses a lot of questions only the Ceremony Mouth-Piece Star can answer. We hope to bring that answer as soon as we get him to respond.

But to shock you, when #SecretCamera beamed its’ signal on this Icon, his spokesperson circumvented but whispered: The man has found his heart-rob, I mean this damsel hanging out with him is his ‘Wanna Be Queen’ (name not be mentioned yet). But please I must not loose my job he said. Please and please, whoever knows MC Emmy Icon should not tell him this side of the story to save somebody’s job…hahahaha (heart giggling).

According to #SecretCamera, MC Emmy Icon seems to be making his long unpopular relationship with his fiancee’, which has passed the families’ consent and friends’ support now open considering the fact that something may be about to happen!…wondering when. Somebody give the lord a big haaaaaannnnnnnd! He was single…now something may be about to…do what?…find out in our next edition of #SecretCamera. I love you all.

Now a production of Astron Poetry, 2016 in Association with IWAB. Many Thanks to our Proud Sponsors: Delaquine Superstore, Cedertone Entertainment Concept Ltd, Green Olive Media Ltd and E-TronicsHub, Dubai. #SecretCamera 2016

The Great Apostle of Faith
http://srjf.blogspot.com/2010_03_01_archive.html

SMITH WIGGLESWORTH
Undoubtedly, the greatest demostration of faith ever demonstrated by a human being , hands down has to go to the greatest apostle of Faith ever, Smith Wigglesworth. Smith Wigglesworth, is said to have raised people from the dead. Not once, but 23 times during his ministry. Smith Wigglesworth will always be known for his great healing ministry.

Smith Wigglesworth, was born June 8, 1859 to very poor parents, in Menston England. His father worked hard to feed his family , making very little money for his labor. His mother pulled turnips , and Smith often worked with her. Young Smith, became a born again christian at 8 yrs. old. His parents weren’t christians but they often attended the Methodist church. Smith, married a Salvation Army Preacher, by the name of Polly Featherstone, on May 2, 1882. Smith Wigglesworth was illiterate . His wife Polly, taught him how to read. Smith learned how to read the Bible. The Bible, was the only reading material he allowed in his home. Smith, and his wife Polly, had one daughter, and four sons. Smith was a plumber by trade, but soon abandoned it after he became a full time Preacher.

His Healing Ministry Begins

From a very young age, Smith Wigglesworth had a deep yearning for God. He would always pray, asking God to heip in certain situations.When Smith, was 20 yrs. old he moved to Liverpool , and the power of God came on him. He soon developed a desire in his heart to help people. He would often visit the sick , in the hospitals. He gathered together young people, in the ship yards, and docks and would preach the gospel to them. Many were saved. One morning Smiths’ children were very sick, so he and Polly, laid hands on them and prayed. In an instant they were healed. This is when Smith’s Wigglesworth faith, really blossomed, seeing the mighty power of God. Smith Wigglesworth, and his wife Polly vowed to eachother that they would never call for a physician. They would always rely on God for divine healing. Smith had great compassion for the sick and needy, which he demonstrated through out his life. God was getting ready to do great miracles through his servant, Smith Wigglesworth. Nobody knew just what a commotion , would be stirred up by this great man of God. Not even Smith, was ready for what was about to happen in his life. One day he was asked to preach at a church, in the regular preachers abscence. He was quite reluctant to do so but they insisted. To Smith’s amazment, preaching the Word of God came quite naturally to him. Many were healed that day as well. A man who was crippled with crutches was instantly healed. This was the beginning of a great healing ministry.

Divine Visitations

Smith Wigglesworth was said to be visited by Jesus, himself. At many of his healings he would see Jesus Christ in the room. In particular , there was a woman , who lay dying in bed. This woman was gravely ill, and the doctors gave her no chance of surviving. But, Smith went to see her, and prayed for her. Before he prayed for her “Jesus Christ” appeared at the foot of the bed, and gave Smith a smile. Who wouldn’t have great faith seeing “Jesus Christ” in the room. Smith knew instantly this woman would recover. This woman was healed, and went on to raise many children.

Smith Wigglesworths faith is tested

Now Smith, and his wife had vowed to eachother that they would never call a physician. One day Smith was taken with a great pain in his side, and it only got worse. Smith, and his wife immediately began to pray. As Smith lay dying in bed, his wife had no choice but to call a physician to see her husband. They had prayed all night and their was no change in his condition. The doctor had confirmed their worst fears. Smith had suffered an appendicitis attack. Their was no hope. All they could do is keep Smith comfortable and wait for him to die. It was way too advanced for him to have an operation , and he was very weak. Smith’s wife called for some friends to come and pray for her husband. They immediatly came and this particular woman, believed all sickness was brought on by the devil. She immediately cast the devil out of Smith, and he was instantly healed.

Raising The Dead

Probably the one thing Smith Wigglesworth is remembered by, is having great faith even to raise the dead. A dear friend since his boyhood lie dying in bed, and Smith was called. When he arrived his friend was already dead. Smith was deeply overcome with emotion, and began to cry out to God to bring his friend back from the dead. The dead man instantly opened his eyes. By this time the great healing Preacher, was traveling all over the world holding revival meetings. One time a woman was dead, and Smith carried her and put her dead body up against a wall , and rebuked death in the name of Jesus, and instantly life returned into the woman, and she was healed of all illness.

The Death Of the Great Apostle of Faith

It is not known exactly what happened that fateful day, Smith Wigglesworth went home to be with the Lord. He was said to be attending a funeral of one of his fellow preachers, when he suddenly bowed his head and went on to his reward. Smith Wigglesworth , The Great Apostle of Faith died on May 12, 1947 very peacfully, at the ripe old age of 87. Their will never be another man like Smith Wigglesworth, and their has never been to this day.

Before Joyce Meyer , there was Sister Aimee
http://hollywoodheyday.blogspot.com/2009/07/april-1-1932.html

AIMEE SEMPLE MCPHERSON
Aimee Elizabeth Kennedy was born on October 9, 1890 in Salford, Ontario Canada. Her father, was a farmer, and her mother Mildred, worked at the Salvation Army feeding people in the soup kitchens. It was through her mother, that Aimee would get her exposure to religion. Even at a young age, Aimee would gather her dolls together and pretend that they were her congregation. While still in high school, Aimee would question Darwins theory of evolution.

Aimee Begins Her Career

In December 1907, she met a Pentecostal missionary from Ireland, while attending a revival meeting. His name was Robert James Semple. She converted to a Pentecostal , and married Robert Semple on August 12, 1908. They then set out to evangelize the world together. While in Hong Kong China, Aimee and her husband Robert both contracted malaria. Aimee recovered , but her husband did not. He died on August 19, 1910. She soon gave birth to her daughter Roberta Star Semple, on September 17, 1910. Not long after her daughters birth, Aimee returned home to the United States. Soon after Aimees return to the United States, she began to work with her mother Mildred, at the Salvation Army in New York. It was there she was to meet her second husband, Harold Stewart McPherson. The couple married and had a son, Rolf Potter Kennedy McPherson. In 1913, Aimee started having tent revival meetings in the United States, and Canada. Aimee drew large crowds at these meetings. She would often give sermons from the back seat of a 1912 Packard touring car, with a megaphone in her hand. With Aimees busy schedule, coming between her and husband, soon he filed for divorce. Soon Aimee, was preachiing over radio.

The Foursquare Gospel Church

Aimee, weary from her travels settied down in Los Angeles California. Aimee continued to travel to raise money to build a large church, where people could come to hear the gospel preached. Aimee,raised more money then she thought and plans were set into motion for the building of a megachurch. Where the masses could come to gather and hear the foursquare gospel.

Angelus Temple

On January 1, 1923 Aimees dream came true, and Angelus Temple was dedicated. A huge dome shaped church with a seating capacity of 5,300 people. The church eventually became The International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, which focused on Christ character, that he was Savior, Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, Healer and King. Aimee often used props for her sermons, and incoporated her own life experiences into her sermons. She would often demonstrate the gift of speaking in tongues, and Healing at her services. Pentacostalism, wasn’t very popular in the United States in the 1920’s so Aimee avoided saying the word.

Aimees Death

On September 26, 1944 Aimee went to Oakland California to preach her popular “Story of My Life” sermon. Aimees son Rolf, found Aimee unconcious in her hotel room at ten the next morning. She had taken an overdose of sleeping pills, that she had taken to help her with some other health problems. Aimee Semple McPherson, died on September 27, 1944 from an overdose of sleeping pills, and kidney failure. She was only 53, yrs old. Her son Rolf, took over her ministry until he passed away in 2009, at the age of 96.

DWIGHT L. MOODY

Dwight Lyman Moody was born in Northfield Massuchusetts on Feb 5, 1857. Dwight Moody wasn’t an educated man infact, his formal education ended in the fifth grade. He left his parents farm at age 17, hoping to find employment in Boston. His hopes of finding employment were dashed quickly. Dwight turned to his uncle for employment in his Shoe store. His uncle in order to keep his nephew, out of trouble required young Dwight to join Mt. Vernon Congretional Church. Dwight Moody, became part of a Sunday School class, taught by Edward Kimball. Fate would have it that on April 21, 1855, Kimball visited the shoe-store where Moody worked ,and in the stockroom of the shoe store he led him to Christ.

YMCA

in 1857, Moody got involved with the (YMCA) Young Mans Christian Association. At first he was a janitor, and then he became a city Missionary for them. Moody, had a desire in his heart to reach the way-ward youth of the city. Moody started to teaching Sundy School to these children, and his Sunday School soon began to grow. On February 28, 1864 the Illinois Street Church, opened its doors, with Dwight Moody as Pastor. Still Dwight Moody wasn’t quite satisfied. He had a calling from the Lord to travel all over the world and preach the gospel.

Called to Evangelize The World

In October of 1871, the great Chicago fire destroyed Dwight Moody’s home, his Sunday School, and his church. Dwight L. Moody was known for pioneering evangelism techniques, that we still have today. He was the first one to have a gospel soloist sing at his church. He was also the first one to have a room where the newly converted could repent of their sins. In 1856, Moody started the Bible Work Institute of The Chicago Evangelization Society. It was re-named the( Moody Bible Institute) shortly before his death. Dwight L. Moody preached six sermons a day. Dwight L. Moody loved to spend time with his family, on his Northfield Massachusetts farm. Dwight L. Moody, was truly a Pioneer of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He accomplished much in his short life time. On December 22, 1899 Dwight Lyman Moody, at the age of just 62 passed away. Its still unclear of what he died of , but some say it was congestive heart failure. Dwight Moody gave us a picture of what heaven might look like when he slipped in and out of concienceness , just hours before his death. He said, ” He had been within the gates of Heaven, and had seen his loved ones calling them all by name, as he described what he had experienced. Dwight L. Moody will never be forgotten for his undying love, and many contributions he made to society.

Truly one of the greatest preachers who ever lived
By American Eagle (Wikipedia (public domain)) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Evangelist, and Preachers have been around for a long time. Before their was Joel Osteen, and Joyce Meyer , their was Charles Spurgeon, and Kathryn Kuhlman. These are some of the great fore-fathers, and mothers of the christian faith. Way back when, before their ever was such thing as a televangelist, there were old fashioned tent meetings, and roadside Holy Ghost Revival meetings. There were no mega-churches, and no preacher had his own building. A preachers pulpit was an old wooden platform, and his church was anywhere he could find to preach the gospel. Many times by the road-side and traveling from town, to town.

Holy Ghost Revival Meetings

What is Holy Ghost revival? It’s when the Manifestions of the Holy Spirit show up at a meeting, or service. It’s like what happened at Azusa St. when everyone was filled with the Holy Spirit, and began speaking and praying in tongues. In revival meetings God shows up in a mighty way, with super natural healings, and people being delivered from evil spirits, and delivered and set free from their addicitons. People are slain in the spirit, and many other manifestions of the power of God. The Bible tells us about speaking in tongues in these verses in the book of Acts. Whether you believe in the gift of speaking in tongues or not , the best way is to study the verses in the Bible , and make that determination for yourself. A great Preacher once said, “When you hear a sermon, you have to chew on the hay , and spit out the sticks” How true that is.

Charles Spurgeon

He never attended Theology school, or a seminary, but Charles Haddon Spurgeon was preaching by the age of twenty-one. He preached to large crowds of ten thousand or more. Everyone wanted to hear Charles Spurgeon preach. Charles Haddon Spurgeon is said to be one of the greatest preachers that ever lived. Charles Haddon Spurgeon, was born on June 19, 1834, in a quaint little village in England. Young Charles, at six years old was said to be advanced in his mental development. Charles,a ten years old, would often times ask questions , that would perplex his father, at Family Bible reading time. When Charles was only ten years old, a prophecy was spoken over his life , that he would preach the gospel, to thousands. Young Charles, even at a very young age, had a hunger, an a thirst for God. Charles was baptized on May 3, 1851 on his mothers birthday. He was sixteen years old. Charles Spurgeon first preached in a small cottage. His popularity spread, and his preaching venues grew larger, and larger. In 1861, Metropolitan Tabernacle was opened and Rev Charles Spurgeon , held his first service , in his own church building. The great tabernacle held 5,000 people. Charles Spurgeon wrote beautiful poems, and countless sermons. His love for Jesus was seen in every piece of his work. Charles Spurgeon’s life was plagued with recurrent illness. It was often thought that Mr. Spurgeon simply over worked himself into poor health. In the years before his death, Charles was often quite ill at times, taking months, and sometimes years to recover from his sickness. His death came at the very young age of fifty-seven, on January 31, 1892 at 15 minutes before midnight. Charles Haddon Spurgeon will always be remembered for his great preaching, and devotion to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

#SecretCamera || WHAT WILL TOUCH YOU ABOUT THE HEALING EVANGELIST OF ALL TIME; KATHRYN KUHLMAN

http://www.influencewithaquinas.wordpress.com/historicsecrets/iwab:
Dear IWAB Readers,
Welcome to Historic Secret on influence, I am Jennifer Jones. #Historicsecret is a special series on secret camera zone, where we bring you monumental insights around men and women who have shaped the world through times and seasons, and x-ray their lives, struggles, exploits and testimonies as inspiration to challenge the new dawn in our time. Join me today as I take you through same on the life of one of the greatest heroes of faith of all time. She operated faith like no other, championed a superlative global healing ministry with uncommon anointing and today many generational move of God’s Spirit are attributable to the life of this Legend who went to be with the lord multiple years ago. You have heard about her and the faith exploits and those she reproduced, now read about the woman of uncommon faith and anointing “Kathryn Johanna Kuhlman”.

A MIRROR OF ALL TIME

image

Kathryn Johanna Kuhlman was born on May 9, 1907, in Concordia, Missouri. Her parents were German and she was one of four children. Her mother was a harsh disciplinarian, who showed little love or affection. On the other hand, she had an extremely close and loving relationship with her father. She would describe, as a small child how, her father would come home from work and she would hang on his leg and cling to him. She often said that her relationship with God the Father was extremely real because of her relationship with her own father.

Kuhlman was converted, when she was 14, at an evangelistic meeting held in a small Methodist church. When she was 16 she graduated from high school, which only went to tenth grade in their town. Her older sister Myrtle had married an itinerant evangelist, Everett B. Parrott. They spent their time traveling and asked that Kathryn could join them for the summer. Her parents agreed and she went to Oregon to help out. She worked with them, and often gave her testimony. When the summer was over she wanted to stay, and the couple agreed. She ended up working with them for five years.

The evangelistic team was made up of four people, Everette, Myrtle, Kathryn, and pianists named Helen Gulliford. In 1928 Everette missed a meeting in Boise, Idaho. Myrtle and Kathryn preached to cover for Everette. The pastor of the church encouraged Kathryn to step out on her own. Helen agreed to join her. Her first sermon was in a run-down pool hall in Boise, Idaho. The team covered Idaho, Utah, and Colorado for the following five years. In 1933 they moved into Pueblo, Colorado. They set up in an abandoned Montgomery Ward warehouse. They stayed there for six months.

Denver, being a much bigger city, was the next stop. They moved several times but ended up in a paper company’s warehouse, which they named the Kuhlman Revival Tabernacle. Then in 1935 they moved once more to an abandoned truck garage, they named the Denver Revival Tabernacle. Kathryn was seeing a lot of success in Denver. The church grew to about 2000 members. She began a radio show called “Smiling Through” and invited speakers from all over the country. One of them was Phil Kerr who taught on divine healing. In 1935 another invited evangelist was Burroughs Waltrip.

Waltrip was bad news for Kuhlman. He was a charismatic, handsome man several years older than she was. There was an immediate attraction, and one family claims to have seen the couple embracing in 1935, but he was married and had two children. Waltrip left Denver and went home to Austin, Texas, but the relationship simmered between Kuhlman and Waltrip. In 1937 he was invited back to Denver to take the pulpit for two months. Shortly after, he divorced his wife and abandoned his two sons. He then spread the story that his wife had left him. He moved to Mason City, Iowa, where he told everyone he was single, and started a new ministry. Waltrip raised pledges of $70,000 to build a ministry building called Radio Chapel. It was state of the art with a disappearing pulpit and an art deco style. He appeared to be a successful and dynamic preacher.

There was an ongoing relationship between Kuhlman and Waltrip, and they married in September 1938. Kuhlman was naive about the consequences of her choices and the marriage was a disaster. She announced to her church that she and Waltrip were married and they would go between Denver and Mason City preaching at their two churches. Most of the people in her congregation left due to her relationship with Waltrip. She gave up her church in Denver, lost some of her closest associates, and moved to Mason City. Waltrip’s success turned out to be a pipe dream as well. The Radio Chapel was completed in June of 1938. By October 1938 Waltrip could not meet his debts. In December Waltrip was demanding a higher salary, even with the shortfall in income. His Board of Directors quit and left him to deal with the finances. His solution was not to pay the mortgage or debts on the Chapel. Radio Chapel went into bankruptcy. Waltrip’s last sermon was in May 1939. The Waltrips were on their own. Kathryn’s happy vision of she and her husband flying back and forth between Denver and Mason City with a successful preaching careers was utterly demolished.

The next few years were very hard for the couple. They embarked on the road as traveling evangelists, primarily staying in the Midwest. They were not accepted in many places due to their marriage history. Initial advertisements listed Waltrip as the primary evangelist. Then occasionally Mrs. Waltrip was also mentioned. By the early 1940s Kathryn Kuhlman Waltrip was given equal billing. Finally by the mid-1940s Kathryn was using only Kathryn Kuhlman in meetings where she was the primary speaker. In 1944 Kuhlman went on an evangelistic tour on the east coast without Waltrip. It may have been a conscious decision to leave him, or she may also have taken the opportunity to reassess her life. It appears to have been more gradual as Waltrip wrote about them as a couple as late as 1946. Kuhlman never returned to Waltrip and they eventually divorced in 1947. She left her marriage behind and from then on acted as if it never existed in the first place.

In 1946 Kuhlman was asked to speak in Franklin, Pennsylvania. She was well received and decided to stay in the area. Kuhlman began preaching on radio broadcasts in Oil City, Pennsylvania. These became so popular, they were picked up in Pittsburgh, and she was preaching throughout the area. She began to preach about the healing power of God. In 1947 a woman was healed of a tumor while listening to Kuhlman preach. Several Sundays later a man was also healed while she was teaching on the Holy Spirit. She was now convinced of God’s healing work. One important thing to note is the context and timing of this breakout period in Kuhlman’s life. 1947 was the beginning of the Healing Revival (sometimes referred to as the Latter Rain Revival) that would last for the next 10 years. What was happening in Kuhlman’s meetings was breaking out across the United States. It was in this time frame that the Voice of Healing Ministry was established and men like William Branham, Oral Roberts, A.A. Allen and many others were propelled onto the public stage. Kuhlman was not associated with those groups, but stepped into the flow of what God’s Spirit was doing across the nation and the world.

In 1948 Kuhlman held a series of meetings at Carnegie Hall in Pittsburgh. She eventually moved to Pittsburgh in 1950, and continued to hold meetings at Carnegie Hall until 1971. She was used by God to bring the charismatic message to many denominational churches, including the Catholic Church. (She received a lot of criticism over this and was accused of being a closet Catholic.) These were her best known years. Her style was flamboyant. She would hold her famous miracle services and the auditorium was filled to capacity every time. She was on radio and television shows. She was ordained in 1968 by the Evangelical Church Alliance. Hundreds of people were healed in her meetings, and even while listening to her on the radio or television. People she prayed for would often be hit with the power of God and be “slain in the Spirit.” Kuhlman never claimed that she was the healer. She always pointed people to Jesus as their healer.

Kuhlman had been diagnosed with a heart problem in 1955. She kept a very busy schedule and overworked herself, especially in the 1970’s. She traveled back and forth from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles frequently, as well as taking trips around the world. Her heart was enlarged and Kuhlman died on February 20, 1976, in Tulsa, following open-heart surgery. Videos of some of her services are still available and continue to be popular today.

#IWAB Conclusion
Irrespective of kathryn’s struggles, challenges, storms and odd opinions of some folks about her, the grace and glory of God upon this amazing woman never dwindled, neither did God turn his back on her. Today, the world and history of christian faith is incomplete without a remark to such a phenomenon that walked this earth. God isn’t mad at you, no matter your mistakes, failures and shortcomings. All you need is to learn through the journey and lean on his grace. Kathryn is forever a dispensation we may never have until the end of time. Since she be gone, the earth is yet to witness the existence of another of her kind. On #influence, we salute the wonder she is and celebrate her landmarks!

AQUINAS COSMAS
         …his image, his name & his influence

INTRODUCTION
Aquinas Cosmas is a dynamic young man with multi talents and vast knowledge. First, he is a devout christian with practical demonstration of absolute faith in God and the gospel of Jesus Christ, having met Jesus in a very spectacular event at the age of 12. He is a leader in Christ Embassy and one of the Spiritual sons of Rev. Dr. Chris Oyakhilome PhD. His career and business interest spans Motivational Speaking, Talk Show, Presenting, Event Engineering, Marketing, Consulting, Brand Management/Corporate Communication, Product Distribution, Modelling, Online Journalism, and Publishing . He holds a bachelor degree in Geography and Environmental Management, majoring in Meteorology from Imo State University. In 2015, he launched a 24 hour christian blog channel (www.influencewithaquinas.wordpress.com) from Africa which  reaches over 50,000 online audience on daily basis in 70 Countries across 5 continents of the world including America and United Kingdom and still counting, with qualitative christian programming and contents.

EARLY ROMANCE WITH HIS CAREER
During his undergraduate years in the University, Aquinas contributed immensely to the lives of tens of thousands of students, the university system and beyond through publications, events, advocacy programs and gospel campaigns. Having allied with a team of exceptional young people on campus, he co-founded a journalism listeners’ club for Voice of America (VOA) making them a south eastern Nigeria Regional Campus correspondents to this world’s famous radio corporation. This engagement established a link between some arms of the University college he studied under and VOA, making him and his team celebrity students on campus.

Not leaving any stone unturned, in 2008 whilst undergoing his compulsory 9 months industrial training program, he embarked on a research that changed the course of his journey in his Department of study. On the research, he investigated ‘the waste generation life of urban dwellers’ where he collected different waste samples from different city-wide residential zones and following series of experiments at the laboratory, postulated thus “Human Quality of Life Can be Ascertained Using Their Waste Fossils”. This work which he defended before 2 renowned academic professors and 3 academic doctors saw him to the top of his academic game, making him the Best Performing SIWES student at the time and has been documented to his credit, further review and resource benefits of concerned persons.

On the contemporary, one success after another, with his team they birthed a campus media publication “Campus Starlight” an independent news that reached 100,000 students on campus in 4 years, and a journalism club “Gem-Star Press”, making them the first and only officially recognized press outfit which the entire university authorities leveraged on for internal and external information dissemination. This achievement, which attracted profound special recognitions, turned Aquinas and his team into first class student-citizens of the school to the point that their works attracted the state government’s attention and corporate sponsorship from ABC Transport Group; a business relationship that lasted for nearly four years. Expanding his early career, as a special Adviser to the University’s Student Union Government, Aquinas became a brand name and ventured into enterprise entertainment particularly; with the passion to curb certain ills thereof. During this period, he became a managing partner and resource person to many campus beauty pageants and fashion shows such as Miss Imsu, Miss Campus, Face of Gemsa, Miss Universities Nigeria, etc. Following these, he received external offers on similar roles in the planning, marketing and execution of many fashion shows and beauty pageant contests with state, regional, national and continental reach and presence in those years, e.g. Uwenja Fashion Show, Miss Heartland, Miss Imo, etc. However, During these times, he worked with some top African Designers such as DHabri Kechy-HDK (his close friend till date), Zalima Creation, etc.

He has written and edited for many magazines and News Papers such as Star Dust, Exquisite Magazine, South-Arabian News Paper, Campus Menu, etc. He was at a point spotted by many corporate and government related groups such as National Youth Council of Nigeria, National Youth Festival of Arts and Culture, House of Dhabri Kenchy (HDK) (Nigeria and South Africa), where he advised onboard as an Event and Media Consultant. Amazingly, in his time in modeling and pageant events, he preaches and fights against the popular and unpopular ills and ensures self value and discipline. Using God’s word as his strength and inspiration, he posits that you can be the best in the industry without soiling your garments; a mentality he communicates to his team members and  models.

POSTGRADUATE PHASE
At the take up of his NYSC call; a mandatory one year national service scheme undergone by Nigerian Graduates, he secured the consent of the state coordinator of the scheme and with his friend; Jofrancis, floated and hosted for a successful one year a weekly radio program “Corpers’ Diary” on Eko 89.75fm Lagos State. A program that heralds the activities of NYSC and nation building reaching more than 3 million audience weekly. The show as at his time featured top personalities and entertainment superstars resulting in tremendous growth and public sensitization of the scheme and the show has become a sustainable dream till date providing platform for internship to young graduates who seek a career in broadcasting through his consistent advisory support sequel to his hand over to the succeeding sets. Aquinas and Jofrancis did a welcome back season on the show in 2013 but as celebrity guests following the special invite of the station’s management. Until 2013, He was a regular guests on some TV and radio programs including “Day Time” on LTV- DSTV where he advocated “peace and nation building” particularly the early days of post election violence in his country in 2011 and 2012.

THE FUTURE IN FOCUS
Currently, he is the CEO of Delaquine Services; a 21st century outfit, with core interests in brand communication, retail chain store, industrial cleaning, event creation, supply, and distribution, enjoying his over 8 years of event expertise, content creation, concept development and strategic marketing intelligence/experience.
