I am Obi. I founded Blossom in America, and today we thrive in Lagos, Nigeria. Our company has not known a better yesterday since we opened here. We cannot Live and Blossom with a defeated mind, low self esteem, or such poor understanding of our self worth. If you allow yourself to be defined by what others think about you, you will always remain a slave even if you lived outside of Africa. I love the U.S.A, and l am so thankful for the opportunities l had to blossom in America. It will always be home. Yet, there is the home of my ancestors. My Africa. My Nigeria. In the words of Martin Luther King jnr, l ask not what Nigeria will do for me, but what l can do in building Nigeria. Oh the set backs are more than a handful, and l could cry you a river. Yet, the onus is on me to build Nigeria. Everyone has a part to play in redeeming Nigeria. How are you playing yours? To those who believe that such derogatory language from the President of the United States of America is apt and point to African leaders as the culprits, l challenge you and remind you that should ever such language be warranted, the user is actually referring to the waste, the corruption, the laxity, the inhumanity, the lack of integrity, the opportunistic, crafty, and devious behaviors of those who make up the country. If you are guilty of defrauding foreign nations, lying to get an inflated tax refund, using their health care facilities and returning to your country without paying your bill in full, if you are guilty of lying to obtain a visa, false marriage certificate in the hopes of living in the USA or other countries, if you are guilty of giving bribes and driving the wrong way in Nigeria, and then you blatantly agree with such derogatory language, you very well fit the description of such language, and little wonder you agree that you are exactly that. You have what you say. This is no silly empty confession mantra; it is and always has been that you will always attract what you think and that you will become. As a man thinks in His heart, so he is. Au Sante.
