“Keep improving your craft. Nourish that which you have. Be your own inspiration!”

Speaking on start-up businesses, Benjamin had this to say;”Understand your market before you decide what you want to do.”


  1. So what’s the big deal about that? So you think people who are bus conductors or doers of any other minial means of livelihood can’t turn out to be superstars or well to do people in the society. Well I beg to dissappoint you if that what you think, cos, some of us did that and someother job that you may think are odd and are doing far far better than what you think you now. I don’t know what kind of role models we have in this nation. WHY wouldn’t our youths engage in all dangerous and dirty means of making it in life when those of you had made out of life so to say, now turn out to show your low days means of livelilyhood as one bad means of survival that one shouldn’t be proud of, instead of discussing it with diginity, you now show it as a one chance of survival. Whenever I read you (Nigeria so call celebraty) comments, it Sucks! Cos you guys are not always proud of your little begining. That’s why our local celebraty after we’ve all struggle to make people are so call celebraty in your little way,will start speaking in American Accent when some have not had a single trip abroad, or will travel all the way either UK, US, S/africa oor even Benin Republc to shot your next work. Even if it means stay inside a hotel room, and using white ladies who have no ash or anything to show they’re woman. Forgeting the bueatiful dames at home.
