 I wasted many years playing football because I wanted to please my parents and be like a relative of mine who plays football for a rich club in Europe.

As I hit on the round leather in the hope of getting signed in a big club in Europe, my parents and all my siblings cheered for me; not because I find pleasure in the game but because of the money, they heard my relative who was a footballer was earning.

In fact, I was playing football to impress them and to be like my relative-two wrong reasons for playing football. Read more...


A slave and his master were about to embark on a journey and the slave pleaded with his master not to tell their host he was a slave. His master agreed with a warning that he should not act like one.

They both agreed and set out on the journey. When they got there, their host welcomed them with utmost respect because the man was a very rich and influential figure.

I was in the habit of moaning and groaning about the state of affairs in my country and criticizing my country’s leaders because I was made to understand our government policies were responsible for all our problems.
