The Richest Women Today – Mrs Folorunsho Alakija gave a beatiful speech to Lagos University students during the 2014 UN International Youths Day; Lagos. She said she was not previlege to have a university degree but today, she is the richest woman in the world (and I must add dethroned Oprah Winfrey in 2013).
Her speech goes like this…
“I come from Ikorodu, Lagos state. I am married to a dashing young lawyer of 70 years of age and we have four grown up gentlemen and grandchildren. It has not been a rag to riches fairytale. It has not been an overnight phenomenon like some cases which you find here and there all over the world. For as long as I can remember, I had always wanted my own business. Hard work…am trying to tell you how I got to where I am if you want those billions. Hard work, diligence, persistence…days where you nearly gave up but I chose not to give up.” Continue…
It would have been easy to compromise but I chose not to and I stayed focus. I could have stayed a secretary as my father desired according to his plan for me but I had bigger aspirations. I dreamt big. God strengthened me and gave me wisdom. I had a passion and burning desire to succeed. Being a secretary, a banker, a fashion icon, a cooperate promoter and printer, a real estate owner, an oil magnate, that I can assure you was no easy feat. Firm belief that what is worth doing is what doing well or not doing at all. I took charge of my life with the tools I have shared with you. I chose to become born again at the age of 40. I chose to make a covenant with God that if he would bless me I would work for him all the days of my life. I chose to hold on to the cross and look up to him every step of the way. Today additional accomplishment includes a wife of almost 40 years, a mother, grandmother, ministry, counseling, outreach, NGO Rose of Sharon Foundation for widows and Author, writer, author of several inspirational books. All I say to the glory of God. So I am 63 and I am not yet done. So what is your excuse? I never went to a University and I am proud to say so because I don’t think I have done too badly. You do not have to have a University education to be able to make it so count yourselves privileged to have that education as part of the feather in your cap” she said.

Keep empowering sucess in Africa Guys…!!! we love you…!
Well well, I am sad to see the South African Lawrence Maleka departure from Star Gist show on Africa Magic. Him and the Zimbabwean Big Brother amplified star, Vimbai Mutinhiriand have always kept us glued to the screen.
In 2012, Lawrence auditioned for STAR GIST because he needed a new challenge and the got the part. His words: “STAR GIST is an amazing show that celebrates our own, showing that we are just as good if not better than our international counterparts. The crew is made up of a vibrant group of people that LOVE their work.” He said this was his proudest achievement so far “My first television show, I had the highest ratings for the channel”, he says.
Eventhough this has been a challenging but exciting journey for the young ambitious star, I guess it is time opting for bigger things in the USA…? right??; looking foward to seeing you hanging out with big stars and celebrities like Jay Z…etc, says Vimbai Mutinhiriand towards the end of today’s show which indeed was Lawrences’s last.
Africa loves you Lawrence Maleka and wishing you all the best in your future plans.

|This picture shows Mr Jean Blaise Gwet and I at his resident
Hello my facebook family, lately, I had the privilege of meeting Mr Jean Blaise Gwet
, Président of MPCC ( Mouvement Patriotique pour le Changement du Cameroun ) and the main man behing the Lucky Gwet’s brand Cameroon. I was deeply humbled knowing the meeting was to take place at his private resident. Thank you my dear friends for the hospitality and warmth.
To me Mr Jean Blaise GWET
is a true leader. His leadership definitly has a worthwhile purpose with mission accomplishments instead of the self-aggrandizement we often see in the Cameroon’s political environment. Can you believe if I tell you Mr Gwet does not own car ? (A personal choice he made…) despite living in a multi-million Francs mansion? Yes this is just how humble and low key his life is. I am inspired and you my readers should also. Mr Jean Blaise Gwet a true patriot of Cameroon has proven that Cameroon can and should protect industrialization by encouraging entrepreneurship, domestic producers and manufacturers.
AÏDA; the solar lantern is Mr Gwet’s gift to the people. Sold at an afordable price, the value it adds to people lives is far greater. Despite batling fake copied products in the maket, he is sure winning many heart in rural and urban areas.

According to Richard Beech report on Mirror.co.uk, Albert Ebosse was playing a match in Algeria when fans started launching objects onto the pitch. The 24-year-old was taken to hospital but died after sustaining a head injury as he left the pitch.
He goes on confirming that, the striker had scored for home side JS Kabylie, but could not prevent them losing 2-1 to rivals USM Alger. As the final whistle blew, disgruntled fans started to throw objects onto the pitch.
USM Alger described the tragic events as ‘terrible’, and released the following statement. “JS Kabylie’s Cameroonian striker has lost his life after being hit in the head by something launched from the stands
“In these painful circumstances, USM Alger and its members send their deepest condolences to the family of the deceased and to JS Kabylie. May Albert Ebosse rest in peace.”
How ironic as the Striker Albert Ebosse had recently spoken on French TV about the issues of racism in football (Second picture is from that interview).
