5 GOOD REASONS TO VISIT BIRMINGHAM

There are 51 official cities in England and the list of these places have been granted city status by letters patent or royal character.

In the last two decades I have had the opportunity to visit over 30 Countries around the world but I have also had the opportunity to visit 40 of the 51 Official cities of England

There is always something profound that makes cities stand out, it could be the history, the architecture, the sceneries, the diversity of people, Its identity or even simple things like the thoughts and emotions we feel when we embrace the new walls of a city.

Have you ever travelled to a new place and felt you are in familiar territory?

Travelling opens our minds into a new world of history, culture, experiences and a new transition of growth.

POETRY CORNER “subsumption” WRITTEN BY KENNETH CHRISTIE-ATITI

subsumption-

I hear my poetry stinks like a water pot filled with broken bottles of wine –
that the infant thread ties road heads to mimicking minds at dawn.

I hear rumours of a dying me at another crucifixion on Tabernacles –
when the son of the whirlwind called his father by name in an enchanted divination.

I hear that men live and die forever and always pray to a Messiah but themselves –
what am I supposed to do now but not live like that.

I hear these things.
I hear these things.
-Kenneth Christie-Atiti

Denise Dennis, an award winning broadcast journalist with over six years of active experience, is currently an On-Air Personality (OAP) working with the nation’s number 1 News, Talk and Sports radio station, Nigeria Info 92.3 FM, in the beautiful city of Port Harcourt.

She is currently the host of the “Chat Station” show that airs from 1.00 to 5.00a.m. on week days and the “Sunday Night Cafe” show that airs from 9.00p.m to 12.00 Midnight.

Denise is a public speaker, a quintessential Master of Ceremonies, an understanding, incisive and compassionate “Agony Aunt,” a voice-over artiste and remarkably sonorous Music Minister.

As a result of her understanding of the tumultuous experiences of adults, and the attendant unanswered questions with regard to life, love, sexuality, emotions, faith, and relationships, including marriage, she has often provided reasonable answers and guidance to her clients. She birthed “Project RAW,” an acronym for “REAL ADULT WORRIES”….(A Safe Haven for Real and Mature Conversations) in the month of May 2019, a forum at which she speaks uncensored on such matters. She has successfully hosted two editions, one each in the months of June and October 2019 respectively and a “Valentines day” edition “LOVE IN THE GARDEN CITY WITH DENISE DENNIS UNCENSORED in the month of February 2020 in the city of Port 

Harcourt.

Via her Instagram and Facebook handles, Denise goes LIVE every Thursday at 9. 

00 p. m. for Virtual editions of Project RAW with an ever-expanding audience, amazing reviews, participation and views from one edition to the next.

Easy going, ebullient, cheerful, and humorous, she is fun to be with. It is never a dull moment with Denise!

Her fans, many of whom fondly call her DD, identify her as sagacious, vivacious and gutsy young lady.

When she is not speaking or singing, she is baking cakes, making pastries, watching cartoons, reading or carrying out research on chosen topics and issues of interest.

She strongly believes that we have all been blessed with the power of choice and brains to each make a maximum impact on our world.

MICHAEL BUTLER INTERVIEWS ELIZABETH OBILEYE ON WWW.AUTHORSPOTLIGHT.COM

The Car Ride That Changed the Future Forever

“Leaves the Reader Fascinated and Grateful!” Pastor Julie Schaecher
Author of Best-Selling Book Messed Up

“It was fascinating I simply could not put it down!” Shala LaTorraca
Author of Best-Selling Help The Book

A girl child was enticed to experience a car ride that led to her being uprooted to an unknown faraway place and an endless lifelong ride…

Tussles between two iconic grandmas (paternal and maternal) and two rivaling sisters, forced her to learn the art of survival and excellence.

The little girl grew to become an accomplished lady and finally understood her lineage and heritage: the missing link to her real-life story.

The story is in the form of email correspondence between the lady and an ex-lover who sought to know her more after a 40 years absence.

A mixture of funny incidents, tears, traumatic incidents and near-death escapes, told in a breath-taking but controlled manner will leave the reader fascinated and grateful.

Elizabeth Sama Obileye was born in 1951 to Dr. Sama Ekpo Sama and Ms Ayi Ekpe, both of Calabar, Nigeria. Taken to Ibadan where she attended St Teresa’s College, Ibadan and had her first degree in French from University of Ibadan. She then trained to become a Translator/Interpreter in CIAL, Spain; Sorbonne 3, France and the Polytechnic of Central London (now University of Westminster) UK. She obtained MSc in Organisational Behaviour from Birkbeck College, University of London while working with the World Health Organization as head of English Translation Section for 17.5 years, with a brief period as the Administrator, in the Reproductive Health Division when WHO/AFRO was moved to Zimbabwe during the civil conflicts in Congo-Brazzaville.

She has been involved in a number of projects in village health posts and she mentored children in difficult circumstances to take positive control over their destiny in both Congo-Brazzaville and Zimbabwe, using Sports, in particular, football. Through this process she helped to stimulate youth sports in Harare, Zimbabwe. Elizabeth Sama Obileye is a mother and grandmother.
