|“If not me, na who? If not now, na when I wan start dis blog sef?” -Muddie|
Now, that isn’t exactly my quote but at least, "Hillel the Elder" didn’t say it in Pidgin English. In other news, dis na January 2013, now about 4 years since i first decided to start my own blog but one excuse and then another, I have made more unfulfilled promises to self about this blog thingy than all presidents of Nigeria, past and present put together.
Thing is, while I kept waiting for that perfect moment, time didn’t stand still. It never will. While some of us are comfortable with just being dreamers, others actually live their dreams. Lord knows how many people started blogging while I was just comfy with wanting to. As I write this, there’s the “Nigerian Blog Awards” which honours bloggers who are truly exceptional but nowhere on the Awards list is the category for “Best Non-existent Blog”. If you doubt me, abeg show me the nominees and I’ll show you my blog (the one I always dreamt about ni). This goes to say that to succeed or not, we must at least try.
Inspired by the little voice in my head which constantly says to me, “Yes, you can” and moments when I am confident that I can achieve almost anything, I present to you…“The Muddie Factor.”
Like the name implies, this blog is a representation of all the things I love without a doubt and those craaaaazy experiences that have come to define the Muddie persona. Wether na Arts, Entertainment, Humour or Personal gist, if e cool, Muddie is involved (thanks to Oluwa noni).
This blog is not just about me, and that is why I’m dedicating it to all the wonderful peeps I’m lucky to have met in my wakanow.life, the ones who never cease to make me believe I am Muddie, those who have waited patiently for this moment and all those who will use this space to share their thoughts over time.
Ladies and Gents, una welcome to “The Muddie Factor.”
