On the 24th of April 2019, I asked my elder brother Mr. Thomas Eleki ‘what will forty(40) years from now be like for Africa?’ he muted for a while and then replied “ My dear brother, what will be, will be”. He response to my question almost left me confused but I remembered the words of men of God such as Rev. Chris Oyakhilome(PHD), Goke Adu, Pastor Paul Adefarasen, Pastor Lanre Oluseye and Pastor Niyi Hastrip to mention but a few folks who have planted encouraging words into my life; words that can make one abound And abase. Before I focused only on religion, the holy bible teaches us that faith without works is dead. AFRICANS DO SOMETHING! AFRICANS WORK!!
Suicide was an option for me when my first investment liquidated and my girlfriend as at then left me but upon my survival, I realized that even one of the world’s greatest author; Robert T. Kiyosaki first business didn’t work out as well. I beg Africans not to give up about their dreams and aspirations because there is hope for the living and a living dog is better than a dead lion (conticipate Zoë by Dr. Emmanuel).
My brother upon a second thought of my question called me and gave me some lectures about my question and the summary of the lectures was that: “everything in life is about now”, because the past is a history, the future is mystery and now is a gift, that is why it is called “THE PRESENT”. AFRICANS ENJOY!!!
About Mr. Thomas M. Eleki and his past:
Mr. Thomas Eleki aka Uncle Tom is my immediate elder brother. He was once very poor, the poverty was so real that hawking of pure water was a means of supporting our family and about his academics; he was not brilliant as I am (UNCLE TOM WAS DULL)
The greatest asset in life is your life, don’t lose it, don’t ruin it or don’t allow others to ruin it. So what should be done with this asset called LIFE?
Health is wealth
AFRICANS!! Who is to blame? Government or the people?
Though everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion as such my response to that should be done with life will be sharing (there is love in sharing, love is the greatest force on earth). If only my girlfriend hadn’t left me, I would have shared with her, if only my rich dad had made me make new friends in/upon my relocation from Lagos state to Rivers state, I would have shared my pains instead of attempting suicide. To confirm this, I will share the lecture of his Excellency sir Olusegun Obasanjo gave in Christ Embassy on the 31st of December 2018. Upon my understanding of his fact C.I.E Partnership, I shared a lot because I have learnt the hard way with my elder brother: C.E.O of campus Entertainment Box Office (CEBO), Ibi-ama Group and co-founder of Rock view Motion (rvm0 and the Elekis’ signature(Es), with his wife; Cynthia Eleki C .E.O of Cyndi’s pot and Zenith Bank staff, with another brother though from another mother, triple (c) Christopher Chuckenuedo Chukwuma C.E.O of pertinacious media with friends too numerous to mention. And because the first shall be the last with my pastors and my spiritual heads. For now the then hawker Eleki Thomas (Mr.) supports my family with huge sums through media and entertainment, and me as his kid brother is envisaging a future to be like him. IF AFRICANS CAN ALLOW THE WESTERN WORLD; EUROPE, ASIA, AMERICA, to share in her pains (to show us how to become a great continent) THESE CONTINENTS CAN PREVENT THE SLOW DEATH OF OUR BELOVED CONTINENT. AND IF DULL UNCLE TOM THEN IS NOW RICH, AFRICA CAN BE GREAT.
