If you were the President for one day and you have the power to fix one thing in Nigeria, what will it be and WHY?
I’d fix Power i.e. Electricity. I think this is one of the biggest issues Nigeria is facing right now. If we were to have stable and consistent power supply, a lot of our problems would get solved easily and we would attract more investment opportunities by international companies.
What is the most annoying thing you have heard people say about women in Nigeria?
‘You better go and marry.’ I find that statement absolutely annoying because half the time the conversation has nothing to do with marriage. They make it seem like marriage should be a woman’s life purpose.
What is the one most important thing about being a woman that you would want your daughter to know?
She must be independent and self sufficient. Of course, her source will be God and God alone. but she must work hard and not depend on anyone for her livelihood.
Do you believe in gender equality? Why or Why not?
I’ve come to realise that people have different interpretations for what Gender Equality means. I believe God created the two genders to achieve different purposes. The bible refers to both man and woman as Man. I.e. God created Man in His own image, male and female created He them. So, yes, we’re equal in the sight of God. However, we were created to achieve different purposes and to stand out individually.
If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year old, which would you choose?
The mind. That’s one of my prayers. That I live well, long and retain control of my mind.
What is your opinion of the Nigerian woman?
The Nigerian woman is strong, tenacious and passionate.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one special quality or ability, what would it be?
Hmmm, I’ll like wisdom, wisdom greater than that of Solomon.
If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know? Why or why not?
Hmmm, I don’t think there’s anything a crystal ball can tell me that I don’t already know. Everything I need to know is in the word of God.
Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item What would it be? Why?
My laptop. That’s my work engine.
If you don’t have to worry about making money, what would you do all day?
Watch movies. LOL
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to? What happened that year?
2009, the year I travelled to the U.S. I’d have made more intelligent decisions.
How do you think your friends would describe you?
Passionate. Energetic. Godly.
Would you like to be famous? In what way?
I’ll like to be famous for my craft, my passion and my work. I plan to change the world and the opportunity to do that will start with being famous.
Is there something that you’ve dreamt of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?
I always dreamt of travelling the world. I’ve done a bit of travelling but not as much as I would like. I haven’t done as much travelling because of limited funds. Lol. Travelling costs money.
Would you be willing to have horrible nightmares for a year if you would be rewarded with extraordinary wealth for a life time? Why or Why not?
Ha, this one is money rituals o. I’m not doing biko. The gift of God maketh rich and adds no sorrow to it.
