There was this guy I knew from Secondary school who is a genius. Actually I knew many of them like that. They were part of a boy band called Solid Rock Voices and I was the Song Coordinator in the group (This was before I knew how to chase Idara and before my voice cracked. lol).
Since those days many years ago, Tolu Odu, has been a rock solid friend and brother from the same Father. I am not entirely sure about the mother part, because God is the father I am referring to.
Tolu sends me inspiring God-focused messages, aside from the deep stuff about work, women and the world at large that we discuss.
In fact, I recently applied for a scholarship place at Stanford MBA (my dream Uni) and Tolu was my ‘go to guy’. He turned my personal statement around with his finesse touch.
Tolu will be regularly writing on the Mind and Mouth platform, while I spend some more time writing poems for Idara. Lol (I was just kidding about that last part).
For good reason, Tolu wants to be writing about God, and I think that is cool, but Tolu isn’t a ‘Pastor’. He will introduce himself shortly and what he wrote about himself is pretty ‘Churchy’ and I don’t mind, but Tolu is also a Marketplace Missionary who is a trailblazer in the Project Management Industry.

As I took a short walk the other day, I realized that I am very of my Father. I am proud to be aligned and associated with Him – this is who I am. I want to know Christ. My deepest desires are centered on the process of becoming Christ like.
