I have an anecdote. Sometime between 8.00 and 8.30 a.m. this morning, I was scanning for a television station that will be unbiased in its coverage of the Osun State election, which incidentally holds today. I stopped when I got to the ‘Channel of the Year for the 8th time’, there was well-groomed gentleman decked in well-trimmed suit admonishing his Continue reading AS OSUN STATE IS DECIDED FOR… by ‘lakunle Jaiyesimi

There are some, who might have grown and remained controversial especially in terms of what they do and their utterances. Of course, usually caring less what reactions such controversial gestures may elicit.


Interestingly, these personalities usually achieve excellently even in those waters that many of their subjects deem unsettled. If properly scrutinized, they may come across as people who know what they want and are clear about it in spite of what people have got to mouth-munch.
