Article: It Is Not Who You Know, It Is Who Knows You (Part 1)


Saw this post on Instagram and I couldn't agree less because it is the reality everyone fail to accept.

Most times, I hear people boast of knowing people in high places but none of the boasters are recognized by the so called high people.

Many people keep forgeting that, you can know the most powerful person on earth, but the same person might not know you.

It is one thing to know someone, it is another thing for that person to know or relate with you.

Even in the bible, Mordecai knows the king, but the king didn't know him until God stepped in and Mordecai was recognized and honored.

Being successful doesn't depend on the number of people you know, it depends on whom God has destined you to meet. E.g Jumoke Orisaguna was hawking her bread jejely, and Ty Bello captured her unknowingly; after much pressure from the fans, the ace photographer went ahead to look for the unknown lady and brought her to limelight. Jumoke became a star in less than one week.

Many people have been in the modeling industry for years, with lots of experience to show for it. But, most of them could hardly boast of a runway job, not to talk of calender model jobs. Jumoke (without experience) came onboard by accident and became everyone's favorite in less than a week.

It is not who you know, it is who KNOWS you.

Comedian Ay's Wife Reportedly Leaves Matrimonial Home, Deletes Instagram Account



According to report by popular blogger, Stella Dimoko-Korkus, Mabel Makun, comedian Ay's wife has moved out of her matrimonial home.


Mabel was said to have brought a truck to move her belongings from the couple's Lekki home, while her husband is far away in the United Kingdom shooting a film.


According to the report, Ayo Makun was accused of being a wife beater. Nobody has been able to confirm that part yet, because AY is yet to make a comment except that, he called out the bearer of the hot gist, Stella Dimoko, who in turn replied him on the social media, telling him to come out openly and deny the allegation of wife beating leveled against him. Y'all know Stella got zero chill for people, especially if she got you by the balls and you are still trying to form James Bond. Lol


The season film has just started... remember, 2016 is a year of clap backs and beef. We are definitely waiting for the outcome of the sub. *sips my cranberry juice*


After the report broke, I (aproko number 2) went to Mabel's Instagram page to find out if the report was anywhere near true, I found out that the beautiful mom of one had deleted her page. Could the story be true?


The answer lies in the couple's hands.
