Favorite song lyric
Wow…I can’t really say I have a favorite-there are quite a lot of favorites. I love the song “Africa” by Toto (from the early 80’s). “Prayer, Time to Say Goodbye” by Andrea Boccelli; “Lady” by Fela; “Vulindlela & Nomakanjani” by Brenda Fassie….The list goes on!
I’m inspired by
My mother-Taught me to not be afraid, resilience, love of self and many more; my granddad- he was a kind dad who was a beacon to his people. May seem cliché, but inspired by those who rose/risen against the odds to success.
My icons past/present
Mother (Ngozi), Grand Dad (Chief KOK Onyioha), Oprah. I would not say I have a good number of icons to name. But I look at anyone who has a remarkable story to them as an icon because they give me inspiration to pursue my dream despite the hurdles.
…Just believe; have faith. At the end of the day, everything will fall into place.
