Nigeria. If only we dared ourselves to actually stand together for once in history (forget religion, forget political parties) and have one vision for this country. If only. Nelson Mandela once said that Africa would be great if Nigeria leads. I hope this inspires us all to do better. This is a personal message from my heart. Stay woke. #StayWoke #Wakeup #Nigeriadecides2019 #ThisIsNigeria #Nigeriaelections209 #INEC #postponement #love #light

I have come to understand and painstakingly accepted the reality of dysfunctional families and the immense negative effects on children, the society and the psychological traumas. But a dysfunctional fucking country? Human beings, people’s children left their comfort, risked their safety so as to vote. They arrived and postponement? I don’t care what the reasons are, it’s medicine after death. These old men make it so hard for us to be proud of this country. There’s no pride to boldly say that I’m a Nigerian. Of course, that’s why it’s so easy for us to want to leave and claim another. Why do a lot of Nigerians do way better in countries with so much restrictions, rules and racism and not in their own with so much freedom? I have sighed and hissed and puffed and sighed all morning. Do these old men even have any vision of where this country should be headed? I doubt. Is there any plan to rebrand the identity of who a Nigerian is and how we can regain that national pride? Educational system zero, social infrastructure zero and now INEC is just a playground for foolishness. I’m so angry, I might just sign up with this new Modern Party. Youths in Nigeria should have a council so we start creating secret agendas to take over this country for ourselves and fix it. Only us can decide. Fear of death and fear of failure and fear of all kinds plaque our minds. But if only we dare ourselves to just come together with one vision and just try. It may not be easy and it may take a few years but we need more young people and technocrats in politics. Nigeria can’t be a country just known for dancing and entertainment. We aren’t clowns. We are best for skits and funny stupidity but when it comes to real work we just sleep? No we can’t. For goodness sakes where is the anger and the rage and the fire for change? These old relics can’t do it, we must do it ourselves. #nigeria #nigeriadecides2019 #nigeriaelections2019 #NewNigeria @inecnigeria @bankywellington @mdp_ng #Inec #postponement #ThisIsNigeria

Official premiere of #AlitaTheBattleAngel. This is the best darn experience I have seen in ages. If you’re not watching Alita then why are you even watching anything? @filmoneng @alitamovie #alitapremiere

I saw this posted recently by @thelotachukwu and it hit me deep. This principle is what I have lived by for many years. Nothing is ever lost. That which you think is lost always comes back bigger and better wrapped up as a different opportunity or open door. Never ever stay sad or down for lost opportunities that you gave your heart to attain. Snap out of it and stay focused on new ones coming. Stay alert. Your blessings are on its way. #ClassicalActor #Life #Secrets #BenLugo

Sometimes I ask myself, “Who am I?”, “Why me?”, “Why all this?”, “Why does God have so much mercy and love for me when I deserve non of it?”, “Why am I special?”, With all my imperfections, all the identity crises I had to go through and the fire and the growth process, yet with so much success and achievements and blessings all around me. All I can say to this beautiful supreme Almighty Creator is, “Thank you”! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Life is beautiful. I am grateful for the journey and everything in between. Thank you. What are you grateful for in your life? Forget your sorrows and for once think of gratefulness. #ClassicalActor #Africa #Lagos #BenLugo #Dreamy #Sun#Sunset #Kisses #Sun

“We need your character to be an embodiment of El Chapo”, said the Director. “Say no more”, replied Ben. You like him or nah? #ClassicalActor #cigarette #actor #filmmaking #moviemaking #nollywood

This is the question of the century. And the sad thing is, we tend to ask this when something tragic happens to someone dear or close to us. Someone who we thought should never have had this happen to them. It’s sad. I recently lost someone close to me. She was young. 3 children. All girls. She was a single mother. Good job. She was happy and fulfilled. She lived a good and modest life. And she was very good to her family and to people. I expected her to live for a 100 years. And just like that, malaria and low blood pressure, she’s gone. Shit like this makes you question everything you ever knew, beliefs, God, karma, life, good, bad. But it also humbles you, makes you more conscious about life, knowing that this life is fragile. It’s a gift not to be taken for granted. So why? Why really do bad things happen to good people? The answer may surprise you but I think that many good people depend on their goodness alone to save them, forgetting that there’s so much more to life, there’s a battle out there that we cannot see. And one of the secrets missing is prayer. Who is praying for the good ones? Most of the time people assume because someone is good, then surely they are safe. But the good ones need so much prayers and intercessions. I don’t have all the answers but I know this, if you choose the path to goodness then you must tamper goodness with wisdom and kindness with balance. Else you risk leaving a complacent life that could easily cut you off. So in summary it’s best to forgive easily, be kind to people, smile at a stranger, give to the poor, treat the lowest with the same respect as the highest and be quick to apologize and move on. Tomorrow isn’t promised. #ClassicalActor #Life
