Fantastic Friday night

Hello dears.
I had lamented about how boring my life had become... well I went to Mushin yesterday and it was the must beautiful experience I had ever had in a long time. I watched the market unfold before my eyes. It just dawned on me: every time we complain about the government not doing anything?
What have we done for ourselves, our little family, our community to make it better?... (Topic for another day)
Wow yesterday I realized that there a lot of talents in Nigeria, the sad part about it is that these talents are discovered when poverty comes to play. Why can't it be discovered when we are comfortable? ( I guess a little comfortability makes us a little bit lazy). Poverty begets creativity and talent.
So in this Mushin, there were men making shoes, working with leather(Italian, Spanish, faux, fur etc) you name it. LOL the sad part is that I saw all types of designer logo in the market, from Clarks to Manchester united, ( now this news is story for another day). But I must say that their work is fantastic. The new wave of development, money, riches, awareness is going to come from the creative mind. When there isn't any job, creativity kicks in and like the saying say: "man must chop".
I also realized that there are people in this same country of mine who make serious money legitimately. Interesting don't you think?

I leave you guys today to enjoy your weekend and make sure you have a lovely time.


  1. Glad that you had a fantastic Friday.. I've always believed that there are so many talents in Nigeria, just that hardship is too much. Nigeria is one country where you can make so much money if you have good business concept..
    Have a nice weekend too, and thanks for stopping by..

    1. dear yep life is hard in naija. but i choose to see only how simple life can be

  2. As you said, we must find something to do to survive o. And not all of us can do illegal stuffs. Man must wack

  3. Lol @ the ManU label...interesting...

    It's rather amazing how much talent we possess...God has created us to be inventors but often the pursuit of chasing money takes over, instead of doing what God has created you to do and have the money chase you..
