success story made in africa

If where you come from really  matters,
Obama won’t be today’s president of the United States of America
Lupita Nyongo won’t have been heard leave alone known
This boy will lead and make Africa great.



I posted this photo and the same caption to all of my social media accounts and what  interested me most  were the responses i got from my Facebook page fans.
A few comments  i got are here.

Hassan Atwetwe said:

Unajuaje kama kijana hataishia kuwa drunken master  ? 

How do you know? He might end up being an alcohol addict

Humphrey Mairura said:
He will never, this is Africa Obama himself made it in the U. S

Chirchir Joshua said:

You  are forgeting that lupita’s dad Anyang Nyongo is a professor?Lupita wasn’t even born in Kenya.

Now i want to basically narrow down and be particular,  precise and straight to the point.
This comments are merely a manifestation of negative mindset and a clear illustrations of Captives of  cynicism.
If i commence by referring to  Chirchir’s comment; he has a reasoning that if your parents are learned so shall you. If what made Lupita Nyongo successful and famous is that her father was a Professor then i can  bring him a dozen of  professors that i know and believe you me none of their children will be  barely half of where Lupita is right now.
So there is a point worth noting- success is neither inherited nor diffused, success is sought singly.
And so did Lupita,  she was not blinded by her father’s title ,wealth and status – she stepped out of the odds of the world and went to seek her own glory.

Do not assume that you will become successful because of your proximity to successful people for once you lose contact with them your story will be over unless you choose to rewrite it again.

Taking note of Humphrey Mairura’s post.
I will start by being sorry for him,
That he  can  on a daylight,  unapologetically  say that this is Africa- where  he seemingly seem to suggest that Africa is doomed and no one can make it from it.
He seems to turn a blind eye to the fact that we can but quote a lot of people who have made it success in Africa. Chris Kirubi   and Aliko Dangote just but a few of the richest  and successful men  we have in Africa who are  highly ranked in the Whole globe.
Opportunities do not open up because you have shifted from  your area of specialization or areas of your  residence.Absolutely No! That’s just but a mere  fallacy Opportunities are created,they don’t just pop up.
The American’s travel from their designated countries and land here in Kenya. Why do they come? If  Africa was not worth would they come?
I can quote Dr Wale Akinyemi the renowned newspaper columnist,  once said “You can not be a lizard in Nairobi and expect to become an Dinosaur in New York ”

Opportunities are made they don’t just open.
That’s just a primitive thinking, past and long forgotten Africa is on rise, things are going to become better.

Lets go beyond limit we are the  people to re-write the African story afresh and we can’t achieve this if we still have the same mindset.

We have to  drop  the inferiority complex frame of mind,an inclination illustrated by lack of self-worth, doubt, uncertainty, and feelings of not measuring up to standards.

We can make it .

Obama said this and he made it.

Its your time to say that you can and sure enough you will.

Together we say  “Africa 
Can make it.”

    Exposure is such a good thing.Don’t give medicine to a dying patient. This is exaggeration and if u believe in this you will always remain a perpetual dueler of the bottom strata.
