Simplicity Writes by Samuel Jookanz

A business man would say because I want to become a tycoon in my field of commerce I toil.

Published

Life is broader than what we might be thinking. But it seems so little and small to many because they have not been exposed to varieties of things life has to offer.

If I may ask; why do men toil everyday to sustain life?

Hmmm… This question seems cheap but has a broad answer just like life.

A business man would say because I want to become a tycoon in my field of commerce I toil.

A driver would one day want to be driven by another who also might want to be driven by another… Hmmmm well that’s why I toil says a driver.

  List of Artist to Perform on The Experience 2018

An apprentice would one day want to become the master. To him, that is why he toils.

To a banker, he would one day want to become the CEO of his country’s central bank.

A servant will one day want to become the crown.

Samuel Jookanz

However, have we ever asked of what will become of our achievements when we go beneath the earth more especially without knowing #the_man_that_came_back_to_life_after_going_benefit_the_earth.

The correct and perfect answer to the above question will pave way for us to have good success. It gives us an understanding of what to and what not to do.

It teaches us sagacious ways to make wealth; one of which is to do the business of him who gave us life.

It might interest you to know that life has two phases.

  Drone delivers wedding ring during a wedding in Ghana (Video)

The first phase of life started in a day and will end in a day. But the second phase starts from where the first stopped, but of the end, no one knows.

Paradoxically, men toil to sustain a limited life neglecting that which is endless. I won’t call it stupidity or foolishness but ignorance of the main fact about life.

The #Gospel must be spread and simplicity is in for it.

The scientific law that matter cannot be destroyed but rather transferred from one form to the other applies in real life. It is the resources you have in the place you find yourself to the next phase you want to be, if only you transform it.

Simi and Gold stick to passing message to their audience and not only satisfying the visuals. Original and meaningful concepts emerge from their songs making their music evergreen.

Career

It is easier for couples who are into the same line of work to understand each other work’s demands. Both artist will grow each other directly or indirectly, adding more cement to the marriage. Its hard to come in between a couple who do the same business. Already, “Promise” a new music video which marks their marriage is making waves and more is yet to come, Nigerians believe.

Their marriage is not a public marriage

Right from day one, when Simi is asked concerning her relationship with anyone during an interview, she drops a silence. She respects people’s opinions and acknowledges the fact that it has some effect in one’s life. Therefore she chose to keep her relationship with anybody secret, until she ties the knot which she did few days ago. Unsurprisingly, Adekunle Gold agreed to keep it that way too.
