Founder of record label Made Men Music Group (Triple MG), Ubi Franklin, yesterday in an Instagram Live session with Chude Jideonwo, broke down in tears over the plight of everyday Nigerians facing diverse challenges.
The conversation, titled ‘Talks with Ubi Franklin’ saw the two men sharing ideas on how to handle social issues, develop self, and maintain sound mental health.
“In the last couple of days, I have done a lot. Not that I have a lot. What I did was to start with my immediate family. I called my mom… and helped as much as I can.”
According to Franklin, people are “going through a lot” due to increased poverty and unemployment rate, especially as the federal government has locked down some states due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On his part, Jideonwo talked about the importance of self-development saying, “you spend so much time trying to make yourself better that you have no space to focus on other people’s weaknesses.”
For Jideonwo who is the founder of Joy, Inc., mental health and wellness have been at the core of his work across Africa since 2016. Through the organisation, he has been able to empower individuals and corporates with the life tools that they need to access true happiness and sound mental health, which is necessary for their overall productivity. They are also the focus of his shows, The Daily Vulnerable, which airs daily on TVC, and #WithChude which premieres this Saturday, 18 April, 2020 on TVC Entertainment.
‘Talks with Ubi Franklin’ focuses on the lives of business owners and spotlights the truth behind their success.
