I don't deserve to see this day
I don't deserve this woman
I don't deserve the family and friends I have

Somehow, God saw it fit to bless me with all of it anyway.
In this moment, I am so happy, so grateful and so thankful.

And so ready to take this step.
By God's grace and mercy, here's to forever.

Which do you prefer?
I just got back to Nigeria recently, after the better part of 4 months away. Naturally, one of the things I missed the most while being away was the food. So I tried going to one of my favourite African restaurants to order some. Everything seemed normal until I tried to place an order. I asked for beans and plantain... the waiter said I could have one or the other, but not the two at the same time. I was confused. I decided to go for Jollof rice and chicken. Same story. Pounded yam and Egusi??? No, sorry, it's either pounded yam OR Egusi.. not both together. I was actually at a loss for words. This didn't make sense to me, at all. The waiter then tried to explain.. using words like "change", "growth" and "trying a new direction". But I didn't and still don't understand. Why change what was already perfect? He explained that any option I chose would still taste good. So, because hunger was killing me, I tried it. In the past few days I'd try plantain one day, and then beans another. Etc. And they did taste good. But they were perfect together. Absolutely perfect. The best of the best of African cuisine.
It's unfortunate that sometimes, with growth, change and whatever-other-word U wanna use... we end up losing sight of where and how we started, and altering what was a perfectly working combination. It makes me sad. But such is life I guess. For now, I will have to make do with either beans OR plantain, and either Jollof OR chicken, at different times. It isn't quite the same though, so here's hoping one day someone will realize that U should never have to choose between two good things, when both, together, make a perfect combination.
I miss beans & dodo at my favourite restaurant. Sigh.

In other news, happy birthday @peterpsquare & @rudeboypsquare.
Shoutout to the chef @judeengees. I love you all. πŸ˜ŠπŸ€— #thebankstatements #foodforthought #yalldothedishes

Happy Birthday my bro @maiatafo - In my personal experience, no other Suit Maker in Africa has his level of creativity, skill, craftsmanship and attention to detail. And on top of all this, he is actually RELIABLE. You will get what you ordered, on time, every time, and it will meet or exceed your expectations. This is not a paid advert. This is me appreciating one of the best in the world at what he does. I pray for the day that we will not need to shop for ANYTHING quality outside of Africa. For now, at least as far as suits, tuxedos and wedding dresses go, Mai has us covered. May God bless and increase you bro. Love you SCATTER.

A best friend is essentially the brother you choose.. and somehow I ended up with the absolute best possible option ever. Happy birthday to the FLYEST Pilot on the face of the earth.. @captdemuren.. my brother, my best friend, my partner in business and crime.. 23 years and counting. God bless you, increase you and reward you for everything you do for me, and everything you are to me. Without a doubt I would not be where I am today, and most of my dreams would not have come true without the love and support you have shown me. We made it my G. We dreamt about it, prayed about it, and worked until our dreams came true. Here's to the next 20 something years until infinity. May God see us through it all. One love.

A wise man once said this: "Scars. A sign that you had been hurt. A sign that you had been healed." Scroll through the pictures to see mine.

I'm sharing these because they're proof of what God has brought me through. And because somewhere out there, I know there's someone who needs to hear this.

For those who've been wondering why I've been away so long..I had my 3rd surgery on a rare strain of skin cancer tumours in my shoulder last month. The first 2 times were over 10 yrs ago, then it recently resurfaced. But this isn't a sad story as much as it is a reminder, and a testimony.
A reminder that you should never take life for granted. You only get 1 shot. Some people went to sleep and never woke up. Many others have lost the battle to cancer and other illnesses. Many are still fighting. U never know when your time will be up so don't waste another minute. It's also a testimony about the goodness of God. I think I had to go through this again to remember how merciful God is to me; Lord knows I don't deserve it but He saves me time and again anyway. I keep saying I need to write a book. I really, really do.

The past few weeks of recovery have been tough, but beautiful. I'm finally back on my feet, feeling stronger and ready to get back to life. I'm especially thankful to my Nurse Susu for loving me and being by my side every step of the way - I don't deserve U 😍😭, my parents & siblings, in-laws & close friends for the love, support and prayers, my Pastors - Pastor Tony Rapu & Pastor Del Balogun of TPH, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and Pastor Bayo Adeyokunnu - for constantly praying with and for me. And of course to Dr Wodajo & Dr Miralli & their teams - who God used to operate on me successfully.

I'm thankful for life, provision and healing. Pls dont feel bad, or msg me with any worries.. God has done it, just thank Him for me.
The pain will eventually go away but the scar won't - and I'm glad because it's a reminder to me of what God has done, and evidence to you of what He CAN do. I'm not stronger or better than anyone. I'm just a living testimony that no matter what u face, U can survive & thrive, by God's grace.

Sat down for a chat about Nigerian filmmaking and my @newyorkfilmacademy education thus far. I really REALLY hope to be able to open a world class film & music school in Lagos. We need it. May God help me pull it off. Even if we start with NYFA in Lagos as summer school type thing 2018.. it would be so dope. Already started trying to reel in support for it from my corporate friends. With all the talented artists and storytellers we have, this is absolutely necessary. What do y'all think?

And In today's episode of #YabAScammer πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜’... Hope no-one is still being fooled by these fraudsters? Y'all ever #YabAScammer? The latest schemes they try include BVN system messages, and people pretending to be Artistes/Labels/etc. Ladies, also be careful when they pretend to be brand managers for companies and tell U to buy a form so U can get an endorsement deal. All fake.
Don't be fooled my people. Stay woke! Lol

For those active on Twitter, please check out the hashtag #RedeemAdebowale. Retweet and Chime in if you can. Some of us are trying to help this young lad @mrmacaroni1 who's being unfairly punished by Redeemers University. After 4 years of being an exemplary student (with tons of awards, honours and numerous achievements representing the school - he was the leader of the student union), they expelled him days before his graduation, because he was critical of some Professors and Directors in a Facebook post. I read the post and it would definitely be considered offensive by the school. However, it warrants correction at best. It is unfair and most certainly, un-Christ-like, to wipe away 4 years of a student's hard work and model behaviour because of this. For what is supposed to be a Christian institution, it's ironic that they are being the opposite in trying to ruin this young man's life. The punishment does not fit the crime. Please chime in and help us shed light on his case until they reverse their stance and let him have his degree. It's a sad, sad day when the world has to plead with a representative of the Church for redemption, forgiveness and justice.
