I Will Be Speaking At A Summit In Abuja Next Month

Few days ago, I realised suddenly that the things I am yet to achieve are actually those things I have never consciously paid attention to, never said openly or written down.

.
All of my dreams are coming to pass right before my eyes(damn village people) and I must say that this year is the strangest year I have ever seen.

.
I have gone from high to low moments, from depair to joy, from lack to overflow etc
I have sold out all the books I published that I am now blaming myself for not printing in huge quantities.

.
I have secretly nursed the idea of speaking but of course, I always remind myself that I write better than I speak and that writing is my forte.

.
For someone who has a crowd phobia, who hasn’t made any friend in five years, who doesn’t attend weddings and events, who doesn’t go on group outings, I guess I have faced all my fears this year.

.
Ok…to cut to the chase,

.

I will be speaking at an event this December!!!!(but I have cold feet already).

.

The flier

When I got the invite, I declined graciously. What would I say? I have no nuggets for anyone. Singles and married stuff isn’t even my strong forte.
I gave all the excuses but the convener wouldn’t have any of that.

.
All of a sudden, I remembered a Q&A I had with woman.ng last year when I was asked if I would like to be famous(ghen gehn). I had said I would like to be a famous writer and maybe a speaker(lobatan)!!!!

.

As in ehn….

So here I am. I made that assertion a year ago without having the foggiest idea how it would happen. I wasn’t even sure it was something I could do.

.
Of course, I can speak on radio because people are not plenty in the studio. I can speak on TV too.

.

@Lead FM..no panic attacks..it was a walk over

So come Saturday 8th December, 2018, I would be at Starview Palace Hotel, Gwarimpa, Abuja where I would be speaking….on what?

.
I will simply tell a story…

.
Be there. You can locate the place with Google map if you are in Abuja.
