Sunkanmi Ola Convenes Young CEOs in Abuja: How He Runs His Young Non-Profit

After finishing university in 2012, Sunkanmi Ola founded a digital advertising agency when he saw a gap in the market. During the venture’s early days Ola kept close contact with a mentor who gave him leads on when companies where taking pitches from advertising agencies to market their brands.


“I gate crashed pitches, pitting myself against national marketing agencies’ presentations to brands on how my team and I (consisting of a programmer, a designer and a web developer) could grow their brands massively.” After three months of what Ola refers to as “pitch battles” he landed his first client, a leading mobile telecoms manufacturer in West Africa. Today, Ola (who has only just turned 22) is the founder, CEO and chief digital strategist for his registered company, Syracuse Digital, which helps brands translate their marketing activities online.

“With the growth in the mobile, internet and electronic device usage, smart brands have realised that their target audience spend much more time interacting on these platforms than on TV, press and radio. That is where my agency comes in. We help brands leverage on this growth and increase their market share against other competitors.” One of his leading clients is the Tecno Group, which has multiple companies under it, such as Tecno Mobile, Infinix Mobile and PalmChat. Syracuse Digital assists with Tecno’s marketing in both Nigeria and Ghana. According to Ola, his company employs eight people (all under the age of 25) .


He is convening the Young Nigerian CEO's Conference in August.

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.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

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.
