The last time I went for an eye checkup is either 10 or 20 years ago, so this is a great opportunity for me to get a checkup.

Kids of the Night..

A set of Almajiri children roaming the streets..Photo taken by Gbenga Dansu for the Guardian, visit below for Story full link.

I met a child, armed with a bright smile
I stopped and stared as his face lit mine,
He held out a bowl and I put something in
All of a sudden his peers rushed in..

Hungry and weary, dirty and broken
With their bowls they roam the streets, their eyes sunken
Swarm foreigners for alms and food
Shown no love; they never begged to be born
Left to fate to show them where to roam,

In rare moments you can catch a glimpse
Of the hunger, tiredness and resignation to life
It makes all my adulthood problems feel like a joke
To see kids beg for every single meal,

They grow old, they pick a trade
They become the victims of life and fate
To him who pays dictates their song
A life of crime, poverty and hate,

Still yet I’m marveled by a few,
Who despite all odds remain humble and true
Still holding that bright smile through the years
Feeling blessed yet with no place to rest…

A good heart!

If we could all think like this, the world would be a better place

I came across this on a friend’s timeline on Facebook, and I just had to share. Imagine if we could all spend a little time out of our daily lives investing on others. We are so I-Driven, everything we mostly do is about us.

Day 2 after talking with Gbolahan

He does look sober!!

Day 3..Gbolahan in front of where he sleeps!!
Getting Gbolahan to try a smile
And Finally he smiles

He does look brighter….did you make anyone smile genuinely today?

He looks so better!!

Amazing right? If we all would be our brothers keeper or sisters keeper, the world would indeed be a better place.

Pledging my part!!
Support Gbolahan

You are probably thinking you don’t have enough money to spend on yourself, hence you cannot afford to give out of the little you have, but understand this, there is hope. This guy had none. I feel the same, but I couldn’t resist giving out $25 out of the $65 I get as my work-study paycheck every month. Your assistance too will be highly appreciated too. Xoxo.
Leadership they say, is by example, She led, am following…How about you? Her account number is right up in the first picture, send in what you can, make a difference.

We can all make a difference!!

True story. In the late 90s i was part of the Ogun State Basketball Team alongside Larry Johnson Balogun and Adeoye Idowu Ajala and a few others, and we were set to feature at the National Sports Festival that year, but had to play zonal qualification tournament against Oyo, Lagos and Osun State. The tournament was at Adamasingba stadium and i was super excited to represent my State, i was so young and was gonna shoot 3 pointers lights out, and do MJordan impressions, stick my tongue out, kiss the floor, make cool gestures when making free throws and the whole NBA shebang. But low and behold we got to the venue and we had no jersey to wear as a team. All the other teams were fully kitted with matching trainers, some even had their names at the back of their jersey and we were confused as to what was gonna happen. As you can imagine, i was livid…but wasn’t as free and uncensored as i am now, so i sat there in utter dismay. But guess what, what started as a bad day got even worse as our team had to borrow the jersey already worn by Osun State players in their game against Lagos state, soaked in sweat…stunk to high heavens and we had to wear it for our game against Oyo state which commenced immediately. I remember vividly squeezing the sweat out of the vest i got like tiny rain drops and wearing it…feeling the coldness of wet rag over my back before lining up to play. Now do i need to tell you we got completely hammered by Oyo state, despite the fact we had great players like the two gentlemen i mentioned above. The morale was dead and how could i even try to be cool when i looked like sh*t.
I made a promise to myself that when i grow up and get sorted, i will do something about grassroot sports and try to prevent such ugly scenarios again…as nobody should ever have to go through that. Well… that time has come. Join me in welcoming MACJOB SPORTS FOUNDATION and please support this course as it’s dear to my heart.
