  1. Can we write on people that are already famous\ not so famous? and do we have to write on people we’ve met? Can we write on those that have featured on other blogs?

    • Hi Bella,

      Good question. You can write on anybody. It doesn’t matter whether they are famous or not so famous. For us, the only condition is that you don’t write about someone we have already featured on

      Who inspires you? Whose life has challenged you? Which personality is impacting the lives of Nigerians around you? Write about that person.

      Wishing you all the best. Cheers.
