Just How Important is a foundation?

Well am a trained civil engineer (oh yes I am and I use to work with TREVI foundations) so I think I know just how important a foundation is to a building. If you don’t please take time out to find out (now that’s your assignment + thank God for Google). From time to time we hear cases of collapse buildings, although there are different reasons why this happens, here is a few:

  1. The use of low quality building materials coupled with employment of incompetent artisans and weak supervision of workmen on site.
  2. Non-compliance with specifications/standards, use of substandard building materials and equipment’s and the employment of incompetent contractors.
  3. Non-enforcement of existing laws and endemic poor work ethics at large.

The above is not an exhaustive list, but trust me one thing most of these collapse buildings have in common is a #FAILED FOUNDATION. When this happens there is an enormous loss of huge investments in housing, properties and above all human life.

Structural integrity is not just a necessity, it is a MUST.

Enough of my civil engineering #drama (well I hope you learnt a thing or two) let’s get down to business (shhh… we are talking about SEX).

I will be laying down the foundation for our sex talk.

  1. Sex was not invented in #Hollywood. (Yes, just in case you thought so), #SEX was made by #GOD.
  2. The manufacturer of any product determines the #purpose of the product and typically gives a manual for direction/ instruction. Our manual is the #Bible
  3. Sex is good, Sex is not SIN.
  4. Sex is a natural part of human existence. Notice I said human not animal.
  5. Sex was designed to be explored and enjoyed ONLY in marriage. (Well the creator said so , not me ) – Don’t get me wrong I am imperfect.This is me keeping it real.I also do not speak as one who has attained but this one thing I do: I forget what is behind and  am pressing forward to what is ahead.

This is pretty long I know (I love to speak #omowunmispeaks) …

Stayed tuned as our sex talk is getting intense!

The Naked Truth about SEX!

keep-calm-and-lets-talk-about-sex

I have always wanted to talk about SEX. Yes SEX!!!

There are many reasons I haven’t talked about it before now, however I am taking the BOLD step and nothing is going to stop me.

I may not be the most qualified person to talk about sex but I believe I have a few thoughts and I think it’s worth sharing.

I honestly think SEX is a conversation we need to be having with one another. We also need to be humble to seek for help if we are struggling and be fearless in asking the right questions.

Story Telling for a change!

Stories are powerful tools for change.

Come August 20th 2014 , I will be sharing my story with group of young social change agents ( who have demonstrated interest in using their technical skills to create value in their communities)  at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Lagos, Yaba.

I am excited about this opportunity

Impactlabs is an initiative recently started by students and graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University. The objective of this project is to provide hands-on engineering design and energy education to Nigerian students through real-life technology implementation projects. These projects will address specific energy and water needs in Lagos. The long-term goal of ImpactLabs is to create a sustainable local innovation space to foster the creative and scientific talents of Nigerian youth in the hopes of replicating the success of initiatives such as D-Lab at MIT.

Volunteering for a change!

“I want to die empty, I want to leave behind a legacy , I want to make a difference , I want the world to know that I came , I lived and I loved…”  http://youtu.be/_5x-y0NdzRw

As part of making a difference in the world , I started to volunteer ( in my ‘created’ time) for a foundation The Irede Foundation that empowers child amputees.

I managed a charity walk tagged “OUT ON A LIMB” which took place on the 12th of April 2014 in Lagos Nigeria.

In attendance was Ace Nollywood Actress, Kate Henshaw and Comedy Industry Pioneer, Ali Baba, top-notch personalities, professionals, members of the society and children .

The 2 kilometer walk which kicked off at about 8:30am from the YMCA Building premises as the convergent point on Awolowo Road Ikoyi had over 600 participants  who walked to Falomo Roundabout and back.

Aside the two entertainment veterans in the movie and comedy industry, other notable personalities in attendance were seasoned news archor and reporter of Channels TV, Adesewa Josh, Praise Fowowe, Diekololami Olu-Adegoke, and Winner of MTN Project Fame Season 5, Ayobami Ayoola, Road runners Cycling and Recreational club

Today 5 child amputees are smiling and on their way to getting their prosthetic limb.I am so excited.

Join me next year to extend limbs and raise champions.
