At the Miss Africa awards event held in London United kingdom on the 13th of October 2018, our very own Oreoluwa Kofoworade did Nigeria proud by coming second place. The competition which was keenly contested by 26 young ladies from different African countries was held at The Royal Regency hall in London UK.

In attendance at the event were dignitaries from all around Africa and the UK. Miss Oreoluwa who was crowned first runner up did Nigeria proud as her speech was one which stood out as she spoke about issues affecting women and children in Nigeria such as Domestic Violence, Child Abuse and more.

A criminology graduate of University of Kingston, Miss Oreoluwa has done a lot of charity work in the United kingdom such as supporting men being released from prison, restorative justice, Youth offenders mentoring in the prisons and her local community.

She looks to expand this works back home in Nigeria as she looks to be a part of the struggle for the girl child education, Domestic violence and child abuse. She is cut out for the development of the Nigerian girl child both in Nigeria and all around the globe.

Congratulations are in order for the newly crowned queen.

HERE IS A TRANSCRIPTION OF HER SPEECH AT THE EVENT THAT WON HER SECOND PLACE

Good evening ladies and gentlemen ,

My name is Ore Williams Kofoworade

I am representing Nigeria

I want to be miss Africa GB because my mission is to help support women fleeing domestic violence and to help empower women to develop the confidence they need to achieve their personal best.
The Lagos State of Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, DSVRT, has stated that over 85% of domestic violence in the state lack evidence. This tells me that There is a need to respond.

According to the DSVRT, the psychological impact of being raised in an abusive household can be profound. Many children develop cognitive and psychological problems such as; Eating disorders, sleeping disorders, depression, aggressive behavior and destructive rages, after having experienced abuse second-hand. Males and females who see their parents physically attack each other are three times more likely to hit their own partners than those who have non-violent parents. The sons of the most violent parents have a rate of wife-beating 10 times greater than the sons of non-violent parents.

WE NEED THIS TO STOP.

there is not many safe houses in Nigeria and women stay in abusive relationships because they are scared and have no where to turn.

A confident woman has the power to make a real change starting in her local community with the potential to reach a global audience.

Solution–I want to help provide sensitive services; to victims of domestic and sexual violence; while promoting healthy relationships. As an experienced custodial manager I have seen the success of the getting it right programme and it is my desire to bring this initiative to Nigerian community. This programme focuses on making a change. I want to share my ideas with DSVRT and strive to enhance a coordinated and charitable community to response to domestic and sexual violence in Lagos State and indeed in Nigeria.

In the words of Rosa Parks- I would like to be known as a person who is concerned about freedom, equality, justice and prosperity for all people.

Believe in who you are, anyone can be a star, I can be miss African. Let me lend a helping hand and make a change

THE CHANGE STARTS from now. Thank you

Let me start by saying Talent Management No Be  Job, Na CALLING.
Maybe Promotions Na job, but i repeat, Talent Management No be job. My
name Na Olayinka Babawale Applause, I Be  Olamide Baddo’s PR for a bit
before he blessed me with Lil Kesh just when he had just recorded Shoki. I
Go  start by showing appreciation to every Blogger, Social Media PR, Dj,

Alaba DJ, Alaba Marketer, Satellite and Local Tv stations, just everyone
who Dey around at any point in time during the period of my 11 years stay
For the industry.

Yes 11 years, i dey sure  say you dey  wonder why i quit. Smart people know when to
move on.

As much as possible, i No popular especially facially as i often get

doubted whenever i introduce myself as Wale Applause, I guess  i Be big
man For small body.

I started with Applause Magazine, then on and on the rest now Na history.
If i tell you say he easy, na set up.

Over time i  Don seen artiste rise and fall and rise again to fall again. I
Don seen artistes grow from baby to Giant, at least i created one ‘Lil
Kesh’ myself before he thought i was no longer of use to him. He already
became a star, i guess his career fit tell the story now.

Why i yarn this one , it is because i Dey try  pass  message to all new
artistes, Never bite the hand that fed you. You see the thing about that
manager that helped you ‘blow’ like we call it, NEVER EVER LET HIM GO IF
YOU ARE NOT DOUBLE SURE OF A REPLACEMENT.

That manger wey  dey with you when it was rough, that one that will stay
awake even when you are sleeping, that’s what real love is, because you
know what. Talent management entails giving up your life for someone else.
For the first time, let me say this, i gave over 2 years of my life to Lil
kesh, God used me and Olamide to make ham a star. I remember well when i
will put all my friends on the road, all the way from Sango to Elegushi to
push Shoki. God bless my friend Dj Consequence, he knows the story.

There were many days i had to sleep in my rickety Honda, days my friends
Aspen and the gang will go to the club to spend money just so Shoki can be
played, those days when all that mattered to me was raising a king, Alas,
HE SACKED ME.

As a talent manager, i need you to understand that you are giving your life
away to that artiste you think you love so much, question is not if you are
ready, the real question is if the artiste is worth it.

First my advice is this, as an artiste manager, Music to you is first a
product not just a collection of sound. You need to understand that you are
not the target market. You don’t have to like a song to push it, you just
need to understand what market you are pushing the song to. I honestly did
not like Shoki at first listen, but i knew the market to push it to, the
kids because it sounded like Nursery rhyme. Every song has a target market,
find it.

The music industry is a capital intensive one and believe me everyone is on
the look out to collect money from you. Do not believe 2 faced OAPs like
Osi of beat Fm, who come online to act all helpful. Trust me i have been
there done that, he is part of the no pay, no show.

I trust him to be defensive about this when he reads this so i am going to
give you an instance.

Before Lil Kesh, I was working with a super talented, humble kid named
Spicy. We had a song Lenu produced by D’tunes. Now about D’tunes, he is one
person you want to get close to. I wish he established a Talent management
company because asides knowing how to make music, he knows how to sell
music. Iyanya and Sean Tizzle are testimonies. D’tunes is one humble dude
you need in your corner.

Here is a secret a lot of people will not tell you, the less popular you
are as a talent manager, the more effective you will be. It makes it easy
for you to get the job done. Do not go all about like Danku, you wont get
anything done because instead of representing your artiste, you will be
representing YOU.

Now back to the Osi matter, i waited till this day to tell the story. As a
rookie manager back in the days, Osi was a rookie OAP too, i like to work
with people like that because in my head we trying to help each other grow,
i thought wrong. Back when Osi used to be the errand boy in Beat fm before
the advent of twitter which made him a pseudo celebrity. He was on the
midnight show and back then i paid him good money. I cannot specifically
remember the amount, but i am sure it was good money because YES i used to
throw money around, ask about me. I would always have to stay awake at
midnight to listen in to his show,he would not play my music. I would call,
he picks when he likes then i will beg him to play my music, at least i
paid for it. Sometimes he played, but at a time when we both know most
human beings are sleeping, i wonder who he was playing for. This was a time
Beat Fm was the Alpha and Omega of radio. Another person you do not need in
your corner is Olisa of Beat fm, he most likely will charge you in dollars.
In short as an artiste manager, throw Beat Fm and all the OAPs away, you do
not need them. Forget what you been told. They never played lil Kesh’s
shoki and Oritshefemi’s Double wahala until they became monster hits.

When you looking to plug a newbies song on radio, here are the places you
should go. Your first point of call now is Soundcity radio. Make Ilo and
Awazi your friend, they NEVER request money, trust me Awazi made me a
refund, she never collects money to play a song. You need a radio station
that can give you at least 3 times daily, if you don’t that get it is a
waste of money. Go to City Fm, back in the days when Shosleek used to be
there, that was a real G. When they promise to play your song, they play
well. Walk into Faji fm, Eko fm, Traffic radio they have numbers but they
are underrated. These are radio stations that can give you proper airplay
for people to notice. Also in all you do, make sure your song gets to
Brilla Fm. They will also charge you but they will do a good job. Brilla fm
has a dedicated audience, dont joke with it.

In the beginning, artistes are usually under control, they feign humility
don’t be carried away. Read between he lines, i saw the signs but i
ignored. I remember one day during the heat of promotion, i drove Kesh,
Viktoh and Dj Enimoney to Star Fm. Know what they did, they beat the gate
man. I mean proper beating. I had to do a lot of damage control for the
news not to get out. I am sure till today they must have thought its
because they are celebrities. Tueh!

The signs are always there, always look for them. Even where they are not
obvious, find them.

Always have a plan B. By plan B, i mean always have something else that
brings you money.

A lot of people till date think music just grow, no it doesn’t Artiste
managers place the song strategically to make it seem like it is
everywhere. I remember when i will go all the way from Sango to Ikorodu to
push Shoki without the knowledge of the entire YBNL crew, i wanted to make
my own artiste. I wanted to put my name in the sand of time. I could do
anything for Kesh at the time. Mobola and Desmond2dG of Splash Fm can bear
me witness about how i will come to Ibadan to promote the song. Who knew
that, Me. What was i trying to achieve? I was trying to make star.

I remember when Olamide dropped YBNL album, that was my first major
project. God bless Baddo, he loved me so much. I got some Cds from him, i
signed them myself in his name drove down to Ibadan and was handing it out
to all radio stations, telling them Ola sent me, where as, i sent myself.
You wonder why YBNL have so much fan base in Ibadan and Ikorodu, I did
that. I laid the foundation.

Another thing is that you need to be impulsive, take decisions and live
with the consequences. Your head tell you go to Club Royale now, just go
damn the consequences if you know the dj or not, walk up to him. he is just
another human being. Always think outside the box. In thinking outside the
box, take your promo out of Lagos. People in lagos are too busy to notice a
growing song. Most of the songs you eventually hear in lagos have been
doing well in other places a good example is Wetin we gain by Victor Ad,
lagos people got it last and made it theirs, always look to achieve that.
Take your song to Ibadan, the money you will spend to promote on 2 radio
stations in Lagos will get the entire Ibadan playing your song. Walk into
Ray Power Ibadan, ask after Kolade Dominate, tell him Wale Applause sent
you or go to Splash FM. ask after Edwin Paul, the whole of Ibadan is
covered.

While you read this, say a big thank you to Notjustok.com, they pioneered
music blogging. There was a time to get your song on that site, Ovie would
say submit and pray, if men were God. Notjustok is a good site to have your
song, but trust me your audience is not there. God bless the days when
Dellyma was with Naijaloaded,com, he always knew how to strategically place
your song on the site, he knew the peak periods. Invest in Naijaloaded and
Tooxclusive, this is where Street djs download music and best believe if
your song is good, most of them will play. HOTT category on Tooxclusive,
Song of the week on Naijaloaded, quite expensive but do your best to be
there.

Do not be fooled, we all doctor numbers, Youtube, Soundcloud. The way we do
it is the difference. While some buy virtual views, some of us buy real
view which wouldn’t amount to fans, but we need the numbers, viewers will
not watch a video with 18 views. What we do is advertise the link, it gets
published on Asian sites, you know the population in Asia,YES that’s what
we all do, forget about the congratulatory artworks about millions of
views. Yes they are real views but they do not amount to your fan base,
indeed you need the numbers. Think i am lyinh check www.pushpowerpromo.com.
That is where most of your music distributors go, there are others though
but this is very effective, cheap, real views and accept Nigerian cards.

Let me give you another story about why at a point in my life i used to
wear only knickers, socks and slippers.

Lil Kesh’s first ever show was Cotonou, i am sure he must have thought his
song got that big. Shior. I remember my friend Tayo in Cotonou at the time
who i spoke to about pushing Lil kesh hard in Cotonou. We forced the
students to listen to only him hereby creating a demand. Yes there was a
demand but there was no finance. I asked them how much they had, they 50k.
I told them to push harder and after many days all they had was 80k. I knew
80k was no going to fly with Olamide as we had a 40;40;20 sharing formula
at the time. I got 20 while they got 40 a piece, fantastic sharing formula,
i of those reasons i will forever respect Olamide. Told the boys to send
their 80k, i personally added my 20k since i knew it was coming back to me.
Want to know why i did this? I needed to boost Lil Kesh’s career. What is
an artiste without a performance. I needed to also make myself look good
too. I called the team to say we had a show, a whooping 100k. I got back my
20k, we had a show, went to Cotonou and back. He became a star.

Always make your artiste look good.

Now about why i used to wear only Knickers. I was managing a budding
artiste at the time but my account balance was red. I could not finance the
life of an ideal artiste manager, there had to be another option. I had
rent to pay, my siblings, everyday life, i knew i could not finance the
Versace and Louis Vuitton, the best route to go was to play the humility
card. At this time my percentage had been slashed to 10 percent because
Young jonn needed to be paid. It did not matter to me, all i wanted was to
make my own star. Lil Kesh’s fee at the time was about 400k, what will a
man like me do with 40k which wasn’t consistent, but i was fine. I kept
managing hoping for that day when we start charging millions and my 10
percent will mean much, i lied. I had to result to Knickers, socks and
slippers, that was what i could afford.

It became a trade mark, at first i did not like it but i never wore it on
my face. It was easy for me because i barely had any friends in the
industry, this is another lesson to learn. You have no friends in the
industry, NONE.

For a man who had gone through all these to nurture a bariga boy from Sodiq
to Lil Kesh, i deserved better, but what do i care.

Here is the reason why i got sacked the first time. I cannot be very
specific about the time, but it was when Shoki and Dorobucci were blowing
at the same time. My sources said to me that Don Jazzy had gone to lobby
the MTV base award for Dorobucci and Reekado Banks was going to come on
stage to get the award. I was told that what that translated to was that
Reekado Banks was going to win Next Rated at the Headies. I had worked so
hard than to make that happen. Now we had Shoki, Gbese, Efejoku. I tried my
best but i was just one person. Alas Dorobucci won the award and just as
told, Reekado banks was on stage to get it. I went bonkers. Abfresh who was
to later manage Lil Kesh just got back from Uk at the time and was staying
at my place. I was so sad, i went on twitter and rant. I did rant and
mention Don Jazzy well. Then i called Olamide’s attention to my tweets,
told him i was sorry it was just a moment of madness, i had rights to be
angry. I got a shocker the next day when Olamide told me i wouldn’t manage
Lil Kesh again because of a twitter rant from someone like me, only for him
to go on the stage at the headies to declare Lil Kesh Winner himself. I am
sure we all remember how that went. I remember watching the Headies in my
father’s house in Ibadan as i was jobless, i cried when Lil Kesh wasn’t
given the Award, i wanted him to win it for me. I thought my night was bad
enough, not until Olamide came on stage to rant and i started wailing. My
parents could not console me. I was wailing because all i did was rant on
twitter and i became jobless for several months, Olamide goes on stage to
disorganize a well organized award and he is tagged a hero even by himself.
This pot of beans life.

As an artiste manager, learn to fight for yourself alone. Just when the
millions was coming, YBNL let me go. It broke me, coupled with the fact
that i was going through a lot in my relationship with Mobola at the time.
As an artiste manager, always look out for you and you alone.

About the Djs, I will mention one Dj you do not need when your career is
budding or trying to germinate. YOU DO NOT NEED DJ SPINALL. If you work
with him, you would hate yourself. Forget the hype, when you blow, he will
come kissing your as$. He is usually like that. only a good person on
social media also if and when you are a celebrity/ As an artiste manager
and new artiste, avoid Dj Spinall like a plague. Dj Consequence, Dj Ruud,
Dj Debby, Dj Factor, Dj Prince, Dj Spicy there are a few of the uptown djs
you need, but you would not go empty handed. Anything less than 100k and
you will be wasting your time and money. You can do 100k and above, you are
in good hands.

One Uptown Dj that will always stand out for me is Dj Neptune. Look for
him, become his friend, make him like you and you good.

When you need to plug your song on the mainland, here are your point of
call. Club Royale is your number one spot. 3 djs operate there. Man mark DJ
Xmix, he will show you round the others. These people just want to be
appreciated, and they will surprise you with airplay. Another Dj you need
is Dj Khoded, sadly all of a sudden he became all about the koney and he
started rejecting 50k too, what social media can do. DO not forget Pecas in
Ikeja, go there as much as possible. let everyone there know your face.
Give the girls your cds do whatever you can. IF you still have more funds
to spare, contact DJ Kaywise, he wont do anything without money, but when
you pay and he gets your song, you will get instagram posts of him dancing
and scratching your music. Money well spent. Another Dj you do not need is
DJ Kentucky. I don’t even know where he is anymore. Do not be carried away
by the name. Dj Leezy Ace of former The place ikeja, Dj JP Money of
Elegushi, great guys.All these Djs i mentioned, if you need to get anything
done with them and you thinking about how to approach them, mention my
name, say i sent you but only if you have their cash because the name Wale
Applause is synonymous to money to them. I always come bearing fruits.

Let me conclude this first part by telling you a bit about Alaba. Before i
go there, Always have it at the back of your mind that not every song you
push will blow, always know when to move on to the next song. Let us
journey down memory lane as i remind you about the song Last card by Lil
Kesh. When i first heard the song in the studio, i knew it could not match
up with the hype of Shoki, but the artistes wanted it to drop. I am a music
seller, i am the one on the streets, i blew Shoki, i know what the people
wanted, but they wouldn’t listen. It was released. When i saw what the song
was doing in days, i told every top blogger at the time to kill the hype,
Don Boye formerly of Tooxclusive, now with Notjustok would bear me witness,
i knew it could not sell, so i took the hype away from it, made it look
like a freestyle, then dropped Gbese. Gbese was a hit song from the studio.
Was easy for me to work with. Lest i forget, Don Boye of Notjustok is one
young man you need in your corner.

About Alaba, do not be deceived, till the end of your career you will
always need Alaba. They propagate your music, those mixtapes go as far as
Australia, but there is a trick to it. Before your song can be noticed on
Alaba mixtape, it takes consistent effort. You need to have 5 djs, 5
Marketers and 3 graphics guys on your pay roll for at least 6 months.
Marketers are igbo men, so whenever you call a meeting, make sure you go
with a bottle of Hennessy for each person asides the cash. Igbo men dont
joke with their drink, its a sign of good tidings. Whenever you need to go
to Alaba, NEVER, i repeat NEVER enter the market. There is a Tantalizers
just before the market, set up the meeting there and make sure you are
there before the marketers, they dont waste time. Never ever meet Alaba Djs
and Marketers at the same time. Hold the meeting in different batches, but
let the Djs know you have seen the marketers, that way they can easily
work. Trusted marketers you will need are Person Entertainment, Upright
Entertainment, Olowo, Baby Face, Biggie with an addition of Moving train.
You can add more, but these guys are top notch. Do not act smart by giving
them different amounts, always give them the same thing. Be dedicated
toward it as it can take months, take cue from the Shaku Shaku movement,
they have been pushing it way before you even noticed. The djs you need are
Dj Double Sound, Dj Morebeatz, Dj Mellowshe, lets these 3 decided the
remaining 2 they will like to work with. Now about the graphics artistes,
you need that person who will make sure your face is on the jacket even if
your song is not on the mix, one young man can work the magic, his name is
Kenzy. Indeed you need Kenzy for your entire alaba movement. He is the guy
who will set up the Dj and Marketers meetings for you, do not do it
yourself. You will not regret knowing Kenzy especially when you mention my
name. May God forever bless him for me. Very hardworking and honest.

As i look to conclude this part, be careful of people like Osi, Spinall
etc. They make your clients perceive you like a thief because they will
collect your money and not play the song.

In the next chapter we will talk about a few other things, Tv, Customized
mixtapes etc, but worthy of note is Olamide Adedeji of Soundcity. Not a lot
of people like him and i would tell you why in the next episode, but know
that Olamide Adedeji of Soundcity can single handedly make you famous.

Till i see you again.

Kind regards
King Wale Applause

How did you develop the passion for cooking?

It has  always been in me I just did not notice it, I use to hate cooking
with my mum, whenever she says funmi let’s go to the kitchen I always get
angry, but I went to school and I took two classes that involved in
cooking, which was food&nutrition and catering, I was like give it a chance
funmi and since then, I realized how much I love cooking and eating.

Tell us the idea behind Lagos Chop?

Mmm lagoschop, it all started my first year in Canada, I was in the
hostel and will always cook for my friends, then I will actually call
people to come to eat at my place after cooking, I still do and one day a
friend said since you like cooking why don’t you turn this into a business,
I was like okay I will think about it. And a year later I decided to create
lagoschop and the name was chosen among tons of names .

How has been the journey creating a brand for yourself?

firstly creating a brand is not an easy thing, you need God to say YES to
you first then you can proceed and after that are your challenges, creating
awareness and all the thing you have to do to make your brand grow, but
it’s been God and thanks to my friends and families for their support.
Sometimes I just want to give up but when I think of all that has been put
in I just need to keep going. But yeah it’s been quite a journey

 As an entrepreneur, have there been challenges?

Oh yes a lot of challenges, the very first one getting your brand out
there like I said earlier it’s a roller coaster journey you have to be
prepared.

Being a Chief Chef in Canada, why Canada?

Hmmm about that I am still not a chief chef I am getting there though,
initially I came here to study nursing and the idea of cooking came while I
was studying nursing so it was not planned.

How did you feel being the official food services at YCEE tour in Canada?

Great it was an honor, even though it was a last minute thing but it was
great I wasn’t the only one I had the support of  My team

 

    What are your values in life?

 My values honestly its just having a good life a life that glorifies
God, focusing on my studies and my career. I mean these things are really
important to me right now.

   Do you believe in giving back to the society?

Of course, I believe in giving back to the society you know this reminds
me of when I was Still thinking of becoming a nurse I use to say to my self
I will treat everyone that comes to my clinic and give free drugs to people
that can’t afford them but yeah I still have a similar idea in my head I
intend to do a lot for the society when I make it bigger 

Apart from Cooking do you have any other passion or skills?

Yes, i can EAT I love eating, that’s a passion right lol, I love music,  I
know how to make hair, people say I can dance too. That’s it I guess.

  Who is your best Naija Entertainer?

My best entertainer will be Music wise I love Banky W, kiss Daniel
comedy I love bovi and movie Mercy Johnson.

   Advice to youths who wants to chase a dream in life?

My advice: start now and do not allow anyone I mean anyone tell you it’s
an easy journey and don’t be afraid to fall as a matter of fact you have to
fall to be able to rise up. You will be down so many times and it’s okay to
cry but just focus on the last f-stop, that’s where you are going, and
above all put your trust in God.

 Thanks for your time. It’s a really amazing talking to you.

My pleasure

I am Funmi Osatuyi by name  21 years old,
a culinary student

    Good morning Sir, It’s good to have you this morning on Pidgin Radio.
Hanging out with Felix. Can you tell us about yourself?

  1. Response: Good Morning Felix. My name is Samson Oki Olatunji. I am born to
    the Family of Mr and Mrs Oki Ayila. My mum is from Sierra Leone while my
    dad is from Ondo state, Nigeria. We are all boys, four in number.
    Unfortunately, no girl in the family. All attempts to get a female child
    even after my birth were futile. Instead, we had another boy. We are
    Soldiers in my family( Smiles). All boys and no girl. I went to early
    nursery school run by white teachers. I attended Victoria Island Primary
    School and Chroma College, Victoria Island for Primary and Secondary
    Education respectively. I proceeded to the Lagos State University ( LASU),
    and obtained B.S.C in Accounting. Afterwards, I did some professional
    courses in Drama and Media.

What is growing up like for?

  1. Growing up for me was fun and beautiful. We were not poor and we were not
    like the Dangote’s of today ( Smiles) but we were comfortable and contented
    with what we have. We could eat whatever we want. We dress fine and clean.
    We hardly hangout because my mum was used to the house. We had the
    Christian and moral values which was instilled in us by our parents.
    Many have said, including my parents that I was always frowning at when the
    younger children are punished especially by flogging and spanking. Since I
    was young, I couldn’t control my feelings by telling the elderly person to
    stop the act. I never liked the idea of spanking children. I discovered
    that many children are abused and the sight of it infuriates me. I believe
    there were some other ways to train a child. Sometimes, body language might
    help to caution a child in public. I believe much spankings may lead to
    abuse, especially the female children.

Question 3
Presently, You spearhead the TREK Magazine. Can you tell what it is about?

  1. After graduation from the university, I started working in the bank. At one
    point, I felt that the job was taking my time. I had to leave home very
    early for work and return late. I started thinking of having my own
    business where I will have ample time to do some things for myself. In
    fact, the spirit of entrepreneurship runs in the family. I resigned from my
    banking job to run my own venture. I started thinking of what to do. I knew
    I had flair for writing, it even earned me an A in Literature during high
    school. I also had flair for pictures especially beautiful images. I made
    up my mind to go into media. I love entertainment as well as its news and
    gists. I later settled for a media and entertainment industry. This led to
    the establishment of MCKINGGS media in 2011. The name is significant both
    as individual and according to my faith ( Christianity). I love putting God
    first in all I do. The MCKINGGS Media Production came into being. Our focus
    was to run a regular media company where we do publication magazine,
    coverage of events, photography, video production and most importantly,
    Content Development and creative idea generation. After 2 years of
    operation, we decided to launch our own magazine where stories and pictures
    will be seen. Since it’s a big market
  2. Since it is a big market and many are already involved, we wanted to be
    different from others. After thinking and many researches, we discovered we
    could carve a niche for ourselves with passion of advocacy for abuse of
    human persons especially women. We planned to advocate for the female
    gender through our magazine. Since it was a movement, we got the name ‘
    trek’ which means moving against vices. We called the magazine ” TREK
    Magazine “.
    Today Trek Magazine has become one of the leading magazine 

Question 4

As an entrepreneur, what are the challenges you face in the course of your
journey?

  1. Since we were trying to correct the perception of the society about women,
    we faced challenges because it was more of a public relations job. The
    first challenge was that we published many copies of the magazine which
    were not being bought by people. The magazine had 32 pages but later
    increased to 64 pages or thereabout. It was difficult selling to market
    women. They wanted it for free. Also, some of the personalities were
    difficult to book an interview with. The greatest challenge was funds
    because I had to pay bills, salaries and other renumerations. Some of the
    personalities who would grant us interviews will promise to encourage us
    with a token or even advert. But in the long run, they didn’t encourage us
    in terms of finances.

    Trek Magazine was growing fast and we had access to many places such as

    Enugu. We met a lot of dignitaries such as the wives of the different state

    governors in the counrmtry as well as Senator Oluremi Tinubu. We did a

    story about her and her contributions to nation building during and after

    the tenure of his husband, the then Executive Governor of Lagos State, Bola

    Ahmed.

Participants at the maiden Ikorodu Sports Summit have called for enhanced support for activities in sports to actively engage the youths and curb youth restiveness in the community.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Ikorodu Local Government Council of Lagos State organised the sport summit involving stakeholders in the Local Government Area (LGA) on Thursday. The summit aims to make Ikorodu division the sports hub of Lagos State in particular, and in Nigeria in general.

The mission is to encourage the citizenry in the division to develop and also maintain love for sports both for their competitive and recreational purposes. Discussants at the summit called for support for the project which, they said, would open a new vista in the history of the community as a frontrunner in sports development. Speaking, a member of Lagos State House of Assembly, representing Ikorodu Division, Gbenga Oshin, said that sports unite people of Ikorodu more which could be an advantage.

“Sports unite us and more than that, sports are what we do consciously or unconsciously, walking, jumping or other activities revolves around sports. “Sport has to do with our physical fitness knowing full well that everyone wants to be physically fit.

“We thank God that Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode is recognising us in Ikorodu because we have a stadium under construction located at Igbogbo in Ikorodu which is topmost in the list on the budget. “Here in Ikorodu, we have great sportsmen that are doing well all over the world, sportsmen who have done the city proud. “They include great sportsmen like the great sprinter, Falilat Ogunkoya, the present African Woman Footballer of the Year, Asisat Oshoala and number one sprinter in Nigeria, Seye Ogunlewe and others,’’ he said. Hakeem Olukunga of the Lagos State Sports Commission (LSSC), said that Ikorodu town had once missed the opportunity to have a stadium when 10 hectares of land initially earmarked for the construction was turned to a housing estate. “Ikorodu town has once missed the opportunity to have a stadium when the 10 hectares earmarked for the stadium was converted to a housing estate. “Now, the way forward is that the government has considered an international standard stadium in

Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH) which is a good site for the stadium. “We also have other mini stadium abandoned about seven years ago. It is now under consideration.

The Igbogbo community playground and also the mini stadium at Ijede are under consideration. “My appeal is that when government comes to look for land for stadium project, we should all support it. By the programme of government, all the stadiums under construction will be completed by 2020,’’ he said.

The convener of the sports summit, Folashade Olabanji-Oba, said that though Ikorodu city had been enmeshed in crisis before, the community was now peaceful for sports events. “We have had our own share of crisis like, Badoo cultism and pipeline vandalism, the city is now peaceful for sports activities to succeed. “Going by what happened during this World Cup, when all the youths troop out to watch the games, we want to sustain this and latch into the project. “My assertion is that if football can attract such a huge following, what about other sports? We have Basketball, Volleyball, Handball and other sports, we can grow them big in Ikorodu land. “It is my belief that sports will assume a greater dimension in Ikorodu whereby our youths will be actively involved and have great sportsmen and women,’’ she said.
