Nigeria’s film industry, Nollywood, which has grown to become the second largest film industry in the world, contributes its own little quota to the Nigerian economy, providing jobs to Actors, Filmmakers and other crew members. The industry has attracted a lot of players in recent times, with many people, especially the younger ones, hoping to carve a niche for themselves. One of such people, is 26 year-old ebony Actor, Emmanuel Olabayo. The indigene of Ogori, a small community in Kogi State, is all set to take the industry by storm.
Back in University, I had a friend. Her name was Chelsea. Being in the same class, it wasn’t long before our paths crossed in our first year. Her incredible sense of humor endeared me to her.
After long conversations with interjections of undiluted laughter, we realized that we lived just a street away from each other. We’d be together at school, and after that, spend more time together at home, trading visits. We became very good friends.
I was on BellaNaija, when I first saw this lovely photo of Nigerian highlife Musician, Flavour, with his two cute little angels. Adorable, was the first thing that came to mind. One who doesn’t know anything about the kids, would probably think they are twins; they are about the same age and have the same complexion. Yes, they are sisters, but there aren’t twins, neither do they have the same mothers. However, what I saw in that picture, was a man, trying to be a good father to both of them, regardless of their different mothers.

Tracy had known David for about a year. When she resumed work that Monday morning, and saw the dashing young man who had just been hired, she couldn’t help but steal glances at him every now and then. Yes, he was cute, but there was something endearing about him that she couldn’t explain. And when he walked up to her, to introduce himself as the “new staff” she saw a man who wasn’t seating on a high horse because of his above average looks and first class degree from a top western University.
Today is Sunday and I’m in the mood to preach. Did I hear someone say “ride on Pastor?” Oh yes, I will! All I can think of right now, is forgiveness and learning to how to forgive. If there’s anyone who has never been hurt or hurt someone since the day they were born, could you please indicate in the comment section? I doubt if such a person exists because for as long as one has breath in them, they are likely to either be in the giving or receiving end of hurt.
It’s been a while since I blogged; there’s so much going on in my life right now, and I hardly have the time and means to do some of the things I ordinarily love to do, but I just hard to make out time to for this post, to mark this special occasion, Children’s Day in Nigeria and across the worl Std. I may no longer be a kid, but I’m still someone’s child. And no matter how old I grow, I will always be someone’s child.
