Kingsley Oboro: His Movie Enterprise and Multi-talent Driven Empire

I am so excited about this CEO, majorly because he is in the creative art industry, an industry I am also part of and play some roles in. 
Meet Kingsley Oboro, of BOT Studioz. A movie making company.


Kingsley Oboro is a prolific Director/Writer and one who derives his inspiration from true events. He happens to be a Thespian who usually paints his words in a way that is psychically effective to his audience. A graduate of the Department of Theatre Arts in Delta State University, Nigeria is not the only evidence that he is a Nigerian, born and bred in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria in West Africa. His career as a Film Maker began in his University days and ‘The Patriot’ –A Movie produced by him and Directed by Anthony Ikechukwu in 2009 at the BOB TV Universities Challenge which won Best Film, was just the beginning of his successes. 


After making two more films, which he archived for reasons best known to him, Oboro stopped making movies for almost three years as he got involved in a lot of research. However, his being under the radar was short-lived in a good way, as his project “Movie Making Made Easy” (June 2014) caused quite a stir when it ranked 3rd place worldwide for several weeks during the voting period at the Unesco Youth Entrepreneurship competition. 


However, the apex of his Film Making career took a leap after he was selected by Mofilm-United Kingdom and Unilever, as one of the thirty hopefuls amongst hundreds of applicants, at the Academy for African Film Makers (AAF) in 2014. Indeed, this marked a come back for him. In July 2015, he returned with tenacity after he made his film, which employed synchronicity to the maxim. This movie "Golden Ratio" got him an official selection at the Doc Sunback Film Festival in Kansas, USA. And subsequently, same movie won the Judges Recognition Awards at same festival in the United States. 

Indeed, his versatility as a Film Maker is admirable. Apart from being a writer, he is an Actor, Director, Editor, Cinematographer and Text Animator. But his major strengths remain in Directing, Screenplay and Editing. 

A Film maker once told him "...you manage to excel beautifully well in every area in Film making and that shows how much of a good film maker you are!" However, he intends to keep learning even from a vast knowledge out there as time permits. 

His Movie KEKO whose original story was driven from The Patriot from his university days, happens to be an interesting delight for the consumption of the audience.

CEOs, we should encourage him by going out to watch his new movie KEKO when it is released. Deal?

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.
