#OneWildWoman: Susan Wojcicki

I once heard this quip “when someone is being a pest to your progress, trying to show he has arrived by blocking your progress, buy him, his bragging rights and make him grateful for it. Yes, this speaks to Susan. She's the one you don't want to mess with, especially in a boardroom.

The Platinum Resume

Thursday morning came with film making gadgets. We were going for the full haul, no half-assed measures. One of our designers, Oyindamola, led the production of the short film and it went great. Or so we thought. Turned out the sound was total shit. It was 2pm and were in various stages of  wtf. Oyindamola had developed a cold.

Balotelli’s Goal Celebration: Class Is In Session

The more unplanned it seems, the better planning and execution done. Take the case of Michael Johnson’s gold running shoes by Nike in 1992. The attention the shoes got was worth millions in advert cost and all it took was a a man confident in his preparedness to win the race, a brand taking a gamble on that confidence and a product that drew attention to the brand.

Now, considering the amount of time and resources that Nike has invested into building a gilt-edged brand over the course of its existence and the high perch it commands on the roll call of admirable American brands, did it really count the cost of taking a knee? Or is this road less taken, an all too familiar route where they need no introduction?

Trek ’97:The walk for a man who had death in his pouch.

Close to two million people trekked 28 kilometres in 7.2 hours from Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos Island to Fela’s home at Gbemisola Street, Ikeja, that’s like driving at 4km/hr on a Lagos road.

Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Abami Eda, Omo Eleniyan, was the voice of the tired and trampled, a clenched fist and a voice raised in defiance.

The Moonwalker

I reveled in the drama caused by Sterling Bank’s shady jab at other financial institutions. They shot for the moon and promptly issued an apology after landing. I and many other onlookers didn’t expect this as an aftermath to the trending post.

Of Rockets, Bombs and Shade.

I was having a very mundane Saturday morning. It was calm and lazy because of the early morning showers when all of a sudden, notifications from social media started going off. I opened the first one and immediately ran off to get some popcorn because I knew from the first look that this was going to be good.

#OneWildWoman: Caroline Robinson Jones

You see, that time when all about advertising was headed in a direction just like a herd of sheep, Caroline was the lone wolf that took a different path veering into minority advertising and as result helped diversify the industry. We are talking about centuries ago, in advertising years, when women were still seen as back-end players.
