Uprizin Hiphop Community and purpose films - Oleghe Ikpeminoghena #inthespiritofenterprise

It's another Tuesday and I am grateful even more than ever for life and living.

I met Uprizin a few years ago and when he told me he was into Arts, specializing in Graffiti, I was like, you mean people pay for that in Nigeria? We learn everyday o. Now, he has a hip hop school too. While I'm trying to figure that out, there are so many things happening around us that we miss.

On #strikedanvil today, +Kennedy Adetayo mentioned that some people are making a killing by specializing in dog food production here in Nigeria. I thought we didn't even have that many dog lovers!! Omo, you have to just keep your eyes and ears open.....Don't even dull yourself.
