My aspiration is to be one of the builders of a world of equality, a world where diversity is respected and value for people's lives is paramount. A world where religion and culture are not used as weapons of dispute and destruction, where leaders serve and not steal, where everyone does not pretend to love each other but does so straight from the heart.

Don’t be carried away by this title a beg. I am simply going down the memory lane of people that have their names written firmly in peoples mind. I wont be too serious about this and I wont go the line of Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Cleopatra, Mandela, Margaret Thatcher but I will simply discuss the ones that have got stuffs named after them.
Let’s start with Bob Marley: In Naija for real, when a lady or girl goes carry braids, they call it Bob Marley. Not even dreadlocks is ever referred to as Bob Marley but braids. It has always being called BOB MARLEY! Is this peculiar to Nigeria alone?
Sade Adu: this is another tiny weave to the back hairdo. I hear Sade Adu every time. Just mention this at a salon and every hairdresser knows what it means.
Anita Baker: hmmm an all the time short perm with low cut at the back as it is commonly done in Nigeria. I wonder if this style originated from Anita Baker or if is just simply named after her being a famous style at that time. But the truth is this Anita Baker hairs rocks!!! I still see people waering it till date.
Alicia Keys: “I keep on falling in love…” and boom every stylish girls/women in Nigeria fell in love with the hair style she was wearing when the song came out. My head was filled with Alicia Keys this and Alicia Keys that, when the hairdo was crazily popular. And up till now, people still wear the hair style.
Other hair styles popular among guys are Evenly King, Tyson etc
The question is what are you known for, what makes you legendary? You don’t have to be rich or famous to be one. Just make a change!!! Touch a life; do something that worth remembering you for. Yeah do something!!!
