About

My purpose in life is to “uplift, inspire and entertain” through the power of the positive word. Using media in all of its forms I hope to encourage people to achieve their potential and be who they are born to be.

I desire to uplift all I come into contact with, but particularly young people of colour both in the diaspora and in Africa. I’m also keen to challenge the negative stereotypes which persist in the media and society at large about the potential and actual achievements of African and Caribbean youth, and about Africa as a continent.

Something 2 Say is modelled on the successful companies of people I admire greatly such as Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo, Russell Simmons’ Def Jam and Richard Branson’s Virgin Media Group.

I am fascinated by people with vision and am looking forward to connecting with as many visionaries, go-getters and action-takers through this blog as possible. Thanks for reading!

  1. Hi,

    Nice blog! I love the content. Maybe we could do some cool stuffs together…Have just started a pan-African project on entrepreneurship and working through the details.

    Interesting, I know your Uncle, Segun Aganga through the GS network. I was in the London Offices this Spring.

    Best, and drop me a note anytime soon.

    Btw: do you have an account on Facebook? You can also look me up there.

  2. May I first of all say a big thank you. I have been contemplating for a while about starting up a website or something of that sort to help young black people get together and share ideas, opinions and experiences. I am so glad someone had the get-up-and-go to actually do it.

    This blog is so important and needs to be widely acknowledged. Too often young people of today are consumed with MTV Base and all those other music channels. Now I am not saying that there is anything wrong with watching music videos, however, it is important to strke a balance.

    It is too apparent that young people are not aware of the issues which affect them in society. Hopefully, this blog will enlighten them and lead them on a path of inspiration and creation.

    Please keep up the good work.

    P.S. I would appreciate the opportunity to converse with you about ideas I have to help the youth of today. Being a young woman myself it is so refreshing to find a counterpart who is concerned with the same issues as I am.

  3. Great stuff Lola! fairly new to the blog scene but I share some interests like yourself. I consider myself to be very ambitious and a positive black young woman who has drive and determination. The issues that you have raised are very interesting to read.
