Today’s Noisemakers: Mo Abudu, Japheth Omojuwa, @JajaPhd and others

Every day on the Nigerian internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social matters, etc. They range from the awesome and brilliant to the OMG, he didn’t. We have made it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.

Here’s our list from today:

  1. @JajaPhD

Curious about this part of Nigerian lifestyle, @JajaPhD tweeted this question

We think this answer hits the nail on the blessed head

And this!!!

2. Gunman who shot the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov

Now this is not good news noise by any stretch of the imagination. The implications are far reaching. This is the sort of action that starts wars, and by God haven’t we had enough already?

3. @Prince_VIII

We will just leave this here. No comment

4. Solomon Dalung

Yes, he did not say this today, but c’mon our able Minister of Sports deserves special mention. It is well spended time to include him in this list because our vocabulary will never be the same without him. Most obliged, Sir.

5. Dr Joe Abah

You won’t believe this poll until you see for yourself. Apparently, women prefer scum to nice, decent and faithful? Which women are these? See more reactions on his timeline.

6. Japheth Omojuwa

Following TFAA 2016 (The Future Awards Africa), Japheth Omojuwa took to Instagram to encourage those who did not win about the essence of being recognised for their work.

I want to address an issue that comes up every year about The Future Awards. I should do a blog post but this is how the Spirit has led me to do it. When you are nominated for ANY award, whether you win it or not is not the issue, that you have served humanity to the point of being recognized is the issue. So, to those who were nominated and didn't win, you won when you already got nominated. You were already called out out of many. Someone goes home with the plaque in each category but every nominee must learn to go back home with their heads held high because they are a generation's honourables. To those who expected to be nominated but weren't, don't join those who make up conspiracy theories and stuff looking to throw up negative energy. Not being nominated doesn't mean you aren't doing great work, it just means those running this particular award haven't noticed you yet or they had a lot of people doing just as much great work. No system sees everyone, even the FG doesn't know some of us exist. So, you don't exist for the validation of awards and recognitions, you exist for significance, to make your essence a telling difference in our world. You don't need an award to know you are doing great work. But if you think you really do need an award to feel good, apply to an award organization and tell them about your work. But really and truly, just focus on what you do, evolve and continue to do good. Rewards are natural, they always come. And to the winners, congratulations. Winning this award is great, it is like winning an age grade competition. The award is not celebrating you because of what you have become, it is celebrating you for what you are becoming. Don't get it twisted, you have only just started. Make sure we see you do even greater things in the future because the award you just won became history as soon as you received it. To all of us, let us celebrate one another. Let us push one another. A simple "you are doing a great job" is the difference between someone giving up and the person gaining renewed strength to do better. Africa needs us and we can't make change happen if we don't see these things the right away. #TFAA2016 #ShapingTheFuture
