It’s been about us…..

It’s been about the power we wield…..

Afraid of our powers, our strengths, our numbers, our dreams…

Yet we fight no battles….

There was a time when Angelina Jolie was the hottest woman on the planet. The skinny frame was golden, the late 90s and early 2000s were for the model size 4 and below. Ladies starved and literally worked their buttocks off in the gym to fit the acceptable highly appealing skinny girl frame until anti-anorexic chants started.

At the end we all gave a standing ovation, fine we didn’t quite clap but we did stand when the lights came on and everyone was really pleased. It was a crowd of mostly 90s kids and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves  as Swanky JKA (Nnamdi Okeke) dished out lectures in method acting.  He became our childhood’s ANDY OKEKE, the resemblance was uncanny (Great work at casting). He walked like him, he talked like him (His Igbo rolled off the tongue in the same way as Andy’s), the emotions were expressed the same. The son became the father. We were at Filmhouse but a lot of us were back in our parents’ living rooms with our room dividers and akwa oche.

Obinwanne Okeke is NOT a CRIMINAL, I say this not only because I believe it but because he told me so. I have known Obi for donkey years now and have shared over a crate of beers with him. Exactly 2 years ago, Obi walked into my lounge and after our usual high spirited hug and greetings exchange, he collapsed into silence. Minutes passed then I questioned him and he said:

“Brah, ALL IS VANITY! I have all that should make a man happy, money, cars, toys and girls. I have CEO attached to my name and my company is not some start up. I am FORBES list featured. The clubbing, TED talks, airplanes and trips, it all gets tiring. I am not happy. I crave FREEDOM, I crave peace.” Continue reading
