Some Nigerian influential Media personalities also shared their thoughts on the book. Some of the “Words on Marble” include:

·       The best attitude for an OAP in a new location is to imagine that you are going to war to conquer a new city – Olisa Adibua
·       Media work is all about creativity, you can’t sleep your way to the top, if you don’t have it in you, you do not have it! If you are not proactive and dedicated to the profession, you will fizzle out, but if you are focused and you are driven, you will get there without dirt. - Toke Makinwa
·       Radio has changed, then, it was about your voice but today, people focus more on your appearance and they are looking out for you on the red carpet. So you have to be able to balance your voice and skills with your looks. – Gbemi Olagbegi
·        It is backward thinking to say or think that women in the media are not wife materials. If a woman have a good job, makes her own money, carries herself in a respectful way, I don’t see anything wrong with that.  Toolz O Demuren

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
