When was the last time you thought about your passion? Recently? A while ago? Well, today is a good enough time to take a pause and give your passion some serious thought.
I know the world we are in priorities survival, but nothing beats personally prioritizing one’s passion and reaping its dividends.
Take Kaffy for example, before she became the popular celebrity dancer she is now, she had been following an educational path that will make her an Aeronautic Engineer. She, one day, took the decision to pursue her passion for dance instead. Despite huge discouragement from family and friends, she went on to do amazingly well in the male dominated dance industry – becoming one of the topmost dancers in the country.
What about Kelechi Amadi-Obi? After practising law for years, the seasoned photographer dropped everything and went into photography at a time when photography didn’t mean much in Nigeria. His work in photography and visual art has earned him international renown, featuring in many international exhibitions.
We can also talk about Olorunyomi Omoniyi Makun of Yomi Casual. When it comes to Fashion among Nigerian Men in Nigeria, Yomi Casual is one of the resounding names that take the lead in the Industry. In many ways, Yomi Casual not only succeeds at what he does, but he also has made being a male fashion designer an “acceptable” day job.
Let’s switch into Nollywood and talk about Omoni Oboli. She is the first actress from Nollywood to win Best Actress in two international festivals. After she first started acting, she went on hiatus for 10 years. But then, she came back and took the industry by storm. That couldn’t have been easy, but the acting was her passion, so she stuck with it.
DJ Kaywise and Kim Oprah are also Nigerians who have found the limelight from pursuing their passions. Making a name for themselves with huge followings.
I can go on and on about how big of a deal following your passion is. Without a doubt, it pays to follow one’s passion. And thanks to great brands like TECNO, we are being reminded of that golden fact today. In fact, they have an entire campaign targeted at encouraging young Nigerians to pursue their passion, with a chance of being mentored by one of the celebrities I highlighted above.
