It has been reported by eye witnesses, that of recent, Femi Jubal, a gospel artist and youth motivational speaker, has been frequenting different hotels in Abuja, accompanied by…
Sad how these are the sort of headlines and stories that catch our attention. Mindless stories of celebrities are what attract us. Who they are, where they go, what they wear or in some cases, what they do not wear. Mediocrity has slowly become the barometer which we use to measure our standard of thinking. We are stuck and fixated on who is dating who? And who is a baby mama? When there are issues such as poverty, corruption, misappropriation, and child rights in our society that need to be dealt with.
Our media has become a joke. Rather than use them to speak out for a better life, we would rather watch others have the better life and dream of them ourselves, as if we can achieve it by looking into the screen. But somewhere in our minds, we screen the crude and explicit images of 59 children being killed in their school. We block the images of carelessness and negligence of our leaders and simply make it a joke by creating funny music. Fela sang for freedom, and people listened. D’banj sings for booty and people listen. But the reactions are different, while one generation fought for the rights, the other, fights for the ass.
We keep hearing “it’s going to be ok”, “our country can only get better”, “God will deliver”. But we forget one important thing, God uses people to deliver. So where are the vessels? Simple, they are being blinded by bling bling. Kept in mental slavery by the society and stunted by mediocrity.
Life is far greater than we can see. Don’t you know that we are the leaders of tomorrow? We complain about our current leaders and system of god-fatherism, but honestly, when I look at what we have to offer, I would rather allow them be, because better the devil I know, than the ignorant that I don’t. How many of us can hit our chest and say we know our government? how many of us can stand up and say we can run multi-nationals? we sit down in our living rooms; sorry on our beds and go on blogs and play games. Let me destroy your safety balloon. Fun and entertainment are expensive. These moguls are using you to make their millions… and then you put on Facebook “one day I will be on forbes”… doesn’t that day start today?
We have a lot of issues to deal with in our country. We have a lot of problems that need solutions, but where are the youths to proffer this solutions? They are stuck under the bosom of mummy and daddy. We cannot get our voices heard if we do not speak out. Let’s change. Let’s make a difference in our society. It takes one little step at a time but we can get there. Enough of the star struck lifestyle. Take a moment to day to check more profitable and life changing blogs. Take a moment today to see those steps, programs and seminars you can take to make you a better you, so we can build a better future together.
Yes!!!! Femi Jubal, a gospel artist and youth motivational speaker, has been frequenting different hotels in Abuja, accompanied by youth ministers, to build the Young and Strong program for the strengthening of youths and also the Commonwealth music group to call us back to God. I thank Omotola Ekeinde, Stephanie Linus, Wilson Joel, PITA, Eldee and Uche Nnaji for all their help in making a difference to our world and being leaders we can look up to. I thank Kenny K’ore, Frank Edwards, Provabs, Nikki Laoye and Sinach for creating music that connect us to God. But I also recognize the works of Yomi Alayokun, kujembola Dare, Adekunle Oluwaseyi, Emeka eneanya and Joshua Akinola for starting foundations to reach the less privileged. I thank Alli Bologi, Ladi Shekete and Matthias Reyah Sunday for trying to use their own abilities and ministries to build youths up and make them useful to society. I thank Damilare Ojo, Okezi Meshack and Muiz Smith of aspiring to be great leaders that will make a change.
These people may not be celebrities, but they in their little way are making a difference. Why not join them today. WAKE UP and start a change.
The glory of the latter shall be greater than the former O:)
