The idea is to create a solid business case for improving the educational system in Nigeria, so that more foreign students can study in Nigeria as much as Nigerians study abroad. Your essay should be based on your observation from a national or international, personal, cultural or academic perspective, stating what should be adopted, what should be improved upon and traditions that should be eliminated to improve the quality of graduates, to improve the equality of schools and to improve the quality of teaching and student evaluation methods.

Be as personal as possible, we are seeking to connect with the contestants and match them with mentors.



Essays will be read by a panel in three rounds and judged based on originality of content, pragmatic solutions, sound theory, quality of thought, proficiency in writing and expression. Videos will be judged by the same panel using the same criteria. Be as creative as you dare in your videos without losing the message. We highly encourage thinking outside the box, with imaginary but feasible timelines.

Watch out for VWASS on


Mehn….church activity, hyperactivity, overattendance, underattendance or knowing one and every verse of the Bible are not the virtue.

VWASS is a message like you’ve never heard it before. Prepare for a revelation…as it came to me on March 3rd…

Fingers crossed… I know nothing… God remains my source,  please let’s accept it with a humble heart as it comes… VWASS!

MMPG (Married Man Playing Games)

A taboo remains an invitation to commit.

And it’s like every married man wants a little diversion.

You’re never really mature enough 2 quit.

Just foolhardy enough to take d decision to keep a wife.

The best of boys will dream to take a walk,at least once while there’s life, on the wild side.

The best of players, when they say they’re done, they pick a trophy girl to create an impression.

But married men sometimes still want to woo.

It’s hard to believe that the game is over, when you don’t know if you just won, just lost or need a rematch…

It’s funny isn’t it? Marriage is winning again and again in the same field you think you’ve conquered.

Funny, foolish, exciting, challenging. It’s hard to tell cage fight from love ring…I mean nest…

And unless u dare, cos it’s breaking you down, you never tell a soul how ugly it is inside. An oath to bind two, an ego to protect.

When it’s good it goes public, when it’s bad, it’s ugly. And the world will never know. We only believe what you want us to.

Bof! Who cares anyway? We got our own problems! You keep the benefit of the doubt.

Wallpaper, Screensaver, Avatar, we paint our picture. A little boredom sets in, and a little mist of a window-shopping idea beclouds…

Predator, you’ve had your own cake. Love, company, family, affection, security, a home, your own home, kids, wife, bills.

Stakeholder, Shareholder, heart and home in your hands. Its not enough to invite conscience, or sentiments, to dine with greed…

Man remains selfish…Men remain daring

A taboo remains an invitation to commit, a sweet taboo…

I have been trying to upload this song since Monday and it’s not working 😦 I need to ask my friends how they do it.

I’ve converted it to every audio type in the book, so maybe I need a space upgrade.

How’s your day going 😀 ?
