Life just keeps getting better for Etisalat ambassador and popular actor / comedian Francis Odega. His career took a major boost last year as his popular slangs “gerrarahere”, “for real mehn shiii” and “whollop” landed him with sweet endorsement deals and awards.
Now, he has his own Etisalat branded miniature toy……

The toy looks exactly like him and voices his popular slangs and catch – phrases too. Do y’all see the resemblance?

The comedian shared the news on his instagram page and also displayed his awards won so far. He then left a touching message reflecting on his sufferings before he got to where he is now, quoting that he used to cook a cup of beans with sand….

We can learn from this: Buhari driven in “Keke Marwa” in Germany

Posted on Updated on

You’ve gotta love developed nations. They have a way of making life so simple and easy even when it comes to hosting world leaders. Buhari arrived Germany for the G7 summit recently and was driven to the venue in this………

image

No convoy, no exotic cars, no body guards, no escorts, just a president being driven in a “keke marwa-like” motor. This speaks volumes about how African governments can cut costs and unecessary flamboyance  when hosting similar events.
If this was Africa, you can be sure of bullet – proof convoys on the ground and surveillance helicopters in the air to do the same job that a simple “keke marwa” would have done.

Pics: Stanbic IBTC MD Yinka Sanni shares 5 tips on how to have a successful career

Posted on Updated on

Over the weekend, I was privileged to attend a career conference which had the MD of Stanbic IBTC, Mr Yinka Sanni as one of the speakers.
image

The very unassuming CEO shared five career success tips from his personal experience which I’d love to share with you guys, so, get out your pens…..
image

1. Do more than you are paid for. Don’t just put up an average performance at work when you can actually do more.
image
image

2. Make yourself available as your organisation or company changes or evolves. In other words,  grow with the company. Don’t just change jobs because the company is changing. You must have staying power. He explained that most of the positions he has held in the bank before becoming the managing director were offered to him because he was available. He also explained that you can adapt to any position or job role. Limitations are only in the mind.
image

3. As you work, make sure you specialise and become an expert in a specific field. This gives you the edge and also gives you opportunity to assume leadership roles.
image

4. Continue to update and improve yourself through training and exposure because opportunities will always arise.
image

5. Always place the interest of the company or organization first before yours. Don’t be selfish or self – centred.  Serious companies will always fish out laid – back or unproductive staff.
image
In my opinion, it was so nice of him to share these secrets absolutely free when people actually pay through their nose in other conferences and training seminars just to learn from such industry moguls.
image

Also nice was the fact that about 10 companies were available to interview and recruit job – seekers immediately after the conference.
