Ezparanza think Sex Sells but Hard Work is Better

Esparanza Spalding is a Grammy award winning Jazz musician. She was was born in Portland Oregon on October 18 1984 to an African American father and a Hispanic mother. She graduated with a B.M. from Berkeley College of music in 2005 and went on to become one of the youngest professors in the institution's history at age 20.

She is an extremely talented jazz bassist and singer who was influenced and inspired by her mother. Her mother raised her and her brother as a single mom under difficult economic and social circumstances. She recalls that as a child, her mother used to read books like the Little Prince and the biography of abolitionist Frederick Douglas to them. She said that even though her mother was not rich, she never felt poor because she was raised with a lot of love, education, nature, music and arts. She credits her mother for her hard work ethics.

She says she rarely watches TV, tweet or text because she doesn't have the time to do so. In 2011 she won the Grammy for best new artiste and in 2013, she won two more Grammy awards for best jazz vocal album for 'Radio Music Society' and she shared the best instrumental arrangement accompanying vocalist award for the song, city of Roses with Thara Memory. Esparanza Spalding says that artists should not get caught up in their image as artists but rather they should try to read, think more than they read and put in the time to do their work so they can have a tenable output.

As a beautiful woman, Esparaza recognizes that sex sells, but she is totally opposed to the idea of women relying on sex rather than hard work to advance their careers. Esparanza wants to be judged for her musicianship rather than her sex appeal and believes that female musicians must take responsibility to appear professional and avoid over sexualizing themselves.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
