When I was in secondary school,FGC Okigwe I became a born christian in my JS 2 but as i entered SS2 I had back-slided , I was dating a fine girl (name withheld) and doing music and drama shows in school but when i went home for holidays, my mum will carry me to one church or prayer house for prayers.
They were always seeing visions. They were prophesying how i will only make it in life when i travel abroad!!! They will give us all sorts of prayers to embark on even those with red candles depending on which prayer house it was.Then i just loved spiritual things so i read the bible only when i was on holiday but something in me frowned when i read the new testament like it knew it is fabricated.
After SS3 I went to UniCal and published my first book (You Are gods) . I was walking on the road when i got the inspiration to write the book which i did just to raise the money to travel abroad. My parents had enough on their plate ( six other children to see through school).
After the launch, the money no even reach N150k so i used it to help myself in UniCal. I also wrote and launched Barr. Festus Keyamo’s biography ( Lion In Isolation), the money i made was not up to N200K . The prophecies kept coming , travel, travel, TRAVEL! I tried all could i no see opportunity.
Then I went into TV contents production . I screen played and acted in an epic Tv series on AIT & STV that aired for almost two years- Arise Africa . I also created a Reality Tv Show (Angels TV Reality Show- we took city girls to a remote village to live in for 30 days), the show was aired nationwide and was greatly accepted in Portharcourt.
It made us meet the then Speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon. Chibuike Amaechi and the then NDDC Chairman, Timi Alaibe . After this, we no still BLOW! I was praying like a LION but eating like an ant! Fasting was to me what gym is to a fitness lover.
I watched all Pastor Chris Onyakhilome , Mathew Ashimolowo and Poju Oyemade tv broadcasts . Hoping to learn a new christian trick that will make me achieve my dreams but i was suffering.
Then i went into Journalism.
Cut the long story short, when i finally traveled as they had put it in my head that thats the only place i can make it, I lived and worked in Abu Dhabi, UAE for almost a year, yes it is not USA or Europe at least it is among the abroad!!! My brother/my sister, my whole body just couldn’t stay! I ran back and i am the happiest man on earth to do so.
Now I am the Publisher of NaijaNewsNg.Com and I am a PR/Media Consultant.
MORAL : There are a lot of people who are where they are not enjoying because pastors or prophets said they should be there or do it!
