I was very surprised to see a message from a very good friend, ‘Lizabeth Ike . At first, I didn’t know whether it was a prank or not until I decided to check it out myself. Well, I did and have decided to jump right in on it….metaphorically speaking that is.
So, Liz u r the bestest *fingers crossed* – That’s enough “Thank You” init?
There are sets of rules for this thing though.
First I state 11 random facts about myself, then I answer 11 questions asked by Liz (who nominated me) and then I in turn nominate 11 bloggers and ask them 11 questions (that should be fun).
So, here I go on this trip ————————————————————————>>
11 Randoms facts about myself:
1. I am much older than most people think. I know looking at me, lots have pegged me much younger .
2. I drink alcohol…but I don’t smoke nothing.
3. I love music (All kinds with very good beat), I love Reading (mostly thrillers) and I love watching movies (Most often Horror/Thriller) – those 3 things are my “Holy Trinity”.
4. I am gainfully employed – hehehe. Like you fink am a loafer or something.
5. I write as a hobby. Maybe, I would graduate to taking it on professionally someday.
6. My first passion is poetry.
7. I do not smoke, I drink alcohol though. Most kinds of alcohol.

On the 11 Qs Liz asked I will try to answer truthfully –

How much are we talking about? You see why I can’t rush and answer that….
6. To paraphrase Pink Floyd, would you prefer a walk-on part in a war or a lead role in a cage? (walk-on part in oyibo move = waka pass in Nollywood. Just in case you were wondering)

7. If you were late for an appointment and found out 5 minutes from your house that you’d left your phone behind would you go back for it?

11. What did you want to grow up to be when you were little?
So many things o….at a point a soccer star (so many dreams about that one), a movie star (not so many dreams), a doctor (almost every kid wanted to be that) just to mention a few. But, I became a journo…and now…ish!
