A few days ago, a young man named Ebuka wore an “Agbada” to his friend’s wedding and it broke the internet in Nigeria.
Just in case you don’t know what an Agbada is, it is a traditional attire worn by African men to formal events.
For a long time, the Agbada has not gone through any real form of innovation. People have just been wearing the same designs from time immemorial, and we have all just accepted it like that.
Until Ebuka wore an Agbada designed by Ugo Monye.
Everybody was talking about it…and they are still talking about it.
I however learnt a business lesson from this story (as usual…lol).
You see, A friend of mine ha’ve known the designer of the Agbada from back in the day.They attended the same university, that is Covenant University.
She Watched him from a distance and seen him build his brand consistently over the years.
He is a very good designer, he’s very particular about details and he has an eye for style, he is even making money, he has a flagship store in Lekki …but his brand name was not among the big names we hear on Social Media.
One day…Ebuka wore one of his products, and it broke the internet.
All of a sudden, everybody wanted to know who the designer was and his Instagram followership grew by over twenty thousand in 3 days.
My Heros Members of Living my Life, Just be building your business ohhhh.
Focus on what you are building.
Don’t worry about whether your business has been recognized among the big names or whether you have gotten any award or whether your popularity is not as high as you would like it to be.
Your time is coming.
I know it sounds easier said than done, and I even have to remind myself of this all the time when I realise that I have started comparing myself with other people.
Comparison has never brought me joy.
I have realized that my path is different.
What I’m building is different.
My journey is different.
My struggle is different.
My time of recognition will also be different.
All I’m doing now, is just to focus on this thing that I’m building.
One day, I’m going to blow…and it is the work that I’m doing now, that everybody will see.
I will share the stories of the lives that have been impacted because they came in contact with me…and that’s what everybody will see.
I will share the platform I used to impact lives, and it will be my online website Anaking.com.ng
The point here is… it is not when I blow that I will start creating my course or building my online visibility website.
These things are already existing and they are the products that the world will one day discover.
Where is your online Visibility?
Where is your online website?
Do the work and every other thing will follow.
A True Man Of God: Pope Francis Rejects €180k (N76Million) Lamborghini Huracan Given to Him as a Gift, Sells It Off And Donates The Money To Charity.
May all the Men/Women of God receive sense from this Kind of action.
Enough of Materialistic attributes.
Learn from Pope.
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in charge of our attitudes.
In nutshell do not allow your probably Life challenges determine your Happiness.
No matter what choose to be positive.
Wow! This is what I’m talking about empowerment empowerment empowerment.
Congratulations to you Nnaemeka

May we all learn from this and follow you food step.

“Don’t let Nnamdi Kanu mislead you, I don’t believe in NONSENSE. Nobody should deceive you saying that ‘Igbos are hated’. That’s how we (Igbos) believe nonsense. The poor masses are told to agitate for Biafra. There is nothing wrong in Biafra. But those that say they want Biafra now (or never) should come out let us see the crème of the Igbos then we all will push for Biafra. Let the crème de la crème among the Igbos be at the forefront while the poor masses that loiter the streets in the name of Biafra will support from behind. The right thing is for parents to protect their children from danger. I am not against Biafra but let the Igbo political elites; the Ubas of Anambra, Peter Obi, Ekwueme, Ekweremadu, Nnamanis, Sullivan Chime, Anyim Pius Anyim, I (Mbaka) etc should be the ones pushing for Biafra not our children who get killed on the streets every day. Where are the Igbo political elites? They are in hiding in Abuja and overseas. They have sent these children to push for Biafra and they have gone in hiding. That is not leadership. A leader should be in front to take bullets for his followers just as Christ willingly gave his life for his followers. A leader is not one who will sit and sacrifice the poor for his ambition.” — Fr. Mbaka breaks silence on Nnamdi Kanu, Biafra.
Let’s use our brain not our heart.
This issue can be resolve without shading innocent bloods.
No more war.
I’m not a fan of Father Mbaka
But I think he really made sense on this.
What’s your opinion?
