Olumide Ayeni aka Ghost of showdemcamp (sdc)
What has been your favorite/defining moment since moving back to Nigeria?
I have daily trials, victories and defeats which I would interpret as self defining. Too difficult to categorize it into a single moment. They all mean something to me.
What is Nigeria to you and what does it mean to be Nigerian?
I call Nigeria a “beautiful mess”. In my opinion Nigeria is the product of the overall collective thought process of its people so to be Nigerian Is to be connected to that thought process in one way or another.
How did you find your voice / confidence in your decision to pursue your chosen profession / how did you know you wanted to do what you do?
The voice has always been there but it took practice, time and dedication to express. The confidence comes from faith in God. Honestly I have wanted to do so much as long as it allows me to be creative. So you could say music is a creative backbone for other things to come.
Tell us about a significant turning point in your life.
When my daughter was born it most definitely changed my life. My sleeping habits for starters.
What keeps you going?
God, family, real friends and personal conviction.
If you could go to the past and give your younger self advice what would it be?
I would advise the younger Jedi to pray more, think positively and surround himself with people who are trying to do the same.
Of all the places in the world to visit, where would you like to be/visit at this very moment and why?
Apart from actually traveling round Nigeria and Certain places in Africa, i have always been fascinated with Asian culture. East Africa, Japan & China are definitely places I would like to visit.
What would you rather, the front of Time magazine or forbes? Why?
Personally I would not like to be on the cover of either. I shy away from fame but welcome fortune.
Favorite song lyric?
Andre 3K- ” The common denominator/ The n#gga numerator/ never know who the hater n#ggas cater to your ego “
Imagine your child is reading this 15yrs from now, say something to them.
LISTEN TO YOUR FATHER. Find your purpose in life and pursue it with every fiber of your being. Keep your faith in God, your thoughts positive and your heart pure. Life is what you make it as well as how you take. Live, Love and laugh.
