Everything about life is unique in its’  own way and different when it involves various circumstances. Amidst the royal wedding buzz and trending images of the royal couple and their top celebrity friends, I’m sure a few people had their own royal weekend definitions. From party goings to church programmes to conferences and so on. Life goes on in multiple ways and diverse interpretations. This, however is not just an assumption but the reality of the world we live in. Having spent a weekend filled with motivation all the way, what more than to share and apply the principles learnt.

First, it was ASPIRE 2.0!!! IMG-20180520-WA0006

On Friday, May 18, 2018, my royal weekend started out with Aspire 2.0; A capacity building program for teenagers and prospective undergraduates which was held at Loveworld Convocation Arena, Billingsway. The joy of having to see my friends again after one whole year was an interesting matter on my mind. When you get involved with goal minded and success driven individuals, you are bound to think positive with the intent to inspire others. That is how my experience has been, working with the aspire team, “the lemonade team.” All thanks to Yahweh, the program was a success.

Here are a few nuggets of wisdom from the greatness themed programme:

  • When you lose your friends, they will come back as fans!!!
  • Manners matter in every facet of life.
  • Never leave the GOD factor out of the equation.
  • The difference between your birthday and your death day are the decisions you make from Sunday to Monday.
  • The definition of greatness depends on you.
  • Focus is a determinant for greatness.

2My Royal weekend adventure continued with Live Your Dreams Africa themed THE AWAKENING – which took place at Glitz Events Centre, Lekki on Saturday. A conference birthed to inspire Africans to take intentional steps towards the realisation of their dreams. It featured top players in the dance industry, events planning industry, Nollywood and others. Truly, it was indeed a conscious call to rise for the championing of a desired change in the country and beyond. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered for more tips;

  • Ensure that you rise above whatever is not giving you support.
  • Never underestimate the power of prayer. Pray for the person that will support you all the way.
  • Everyone else is taken, you need to find yourself.
  • All is vanity; What is left is what you can put into humanity.
  • Be the best expression of yourself.
  • Everyone has a season; Just keep wearing your shirt, sooner or later, the right person will notice you.
  • Dream it, do it and don’t give up on it. It’s the way to achieve your goals.
  • Repetition enhances retention.

Let’s just tag it as a secretive situation. I picked out my dress, brainstormed with Mr White through a watery discharge, had my bath and got dressed. Earlier on, before the whole bath scenario, I had attended to kitchen duties though it was one out of ten, thanks to the cramps. Just as I bolted the door and withdrew the key from the keyhole, I felt an electric shock down my spine. I knew it was an unavoidable reflex action in which case I beetled off to meet Mr White again in fact twice in a row, which added up to four times.

However, I could not possibly go to church at that point and that was how I ended up in front of MyFaithTv watching Apostle Guillermo Maldonado. It was a straight from the heart message that prompted me into making up my mind not to repeat my parents’ mistakes. He also spoke of not wanting his children to make the same mistakes he made. It promoted the need to effect positivity and love. Well, I took some painkillers and Garri {a popular West African food made from cassava tubers} which seems to be the first solution to situations like this in Nigeria.


My royal weekend was about touring the city of Lagos via knowledge top-up even as the royal couple toured the grounds of Windsor Castle. Aha! Not to forget the periodic Instagram reloads and rebooting of network slots just to feed my beautiful eyes with the elegant wedding images. To the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, my heartfelt regards  – wishing them Yahweh’s blessings all the way. It was indeed a real royal weekend for me – “It is an unnecessary burden to make negative judgmental assumptions about others. We are all on a journey.” – Steve Maraboli.


What was your royal weekend like? How did you spend your royal weekend? I’d love to hear from you!!!
