Funke Bucknor Obruthe has always been an inspiration to me, from when I met her about two decades ago through my older sister till date. She has always been unconventional in a wholesome, passionate and exciting way. I finally sat down with her this week to discuss a bit of her journey… Pls enjoy.
Later that night, I asked my wife if Claudia had told her about any troubles she was having at home, she denied knowledge of any problems Claudia might be having, and since I had agitated two people already, I decided not to push this anymore. Maybe I was just being paranoid.
Due to recent lifestyle changes, I have re-joined the world of social media and as with everything I come across, I ponder on the dynamics at play. So, here are my thoughts on the undercurrents of this worldwide sensation that is Social Media.
From the day I found out I was going to be a dad, everything changed for me, I grew up almost instantly, and I was determined to be the best husband and father I could be.
My wife was a wonderful woman, she brought me joy beyond measure, and I remember always teasing her, about giving me a copy of herself, so I could have two of them, and she did just that. Our daughter Claudia was born, June 12th, 1988, that was the second happiest day of my life, the first being my wedding day.
I held Claudia in my arms, she stared up at me with her big cute eyes, and I promised her I would never let anything happen to her. I swore I would rather die than see any harm come to her, and I meant it.
It’s practically the end of the year already! And I imagine our New Year Resolutions (or whatever we call them these days) with their exciting, pop-music-style-highs have started to morph into a Reggae-like limbos. When current realities set in and the holiday/ new year exuberance gives way to everyday busyness, the euphoria tends to wane.
With each passing day, those lofty goals start to seem like mountains needing more exertion than we think we can muster. Take it easy, it’s only normal.
We’ve been friends for about a decade and one thing that has not changed about Lala is her tenacity…
When nobody knew her name, before her peers even knew what path to tread, she went after what she wanted with all she had. Today, hardwork is paying off. Enjoy my interview with her…
