Where do you see yourself in 5years from now?

/ November 30, 2017
This came as an arguement between myself and some friends of mine where i reside in school and yes it happened after sunday mass/service... this sparked alot of sentiment and some myopic statements from varied folks concerned , therefore some responses given to the one who this question was asked.

"you ought to be coming up with being a person of your own" Amaka

"you ought to be thinking on the way to be a powerful support to your father and to not want him dead, knowing your age and person" Osama

Father n Son
"five years from now, ought to be you already established in your own business and your fathers ought to be a plus for you" Awareness

"everyone prays to be higher than his father and not the opposite manner round" Amaka

"do you wish your father death?" Lynda

"a contrary son you're, if this can be your vision for your father in five years time" Ifeanyi

"he ought to be higher than his father in five years time and not thinking of taking on his fathers business, his thinking level is incredibly very shallow for him to possess such thoughts.. Him be maloo" Gift

Now lets see what caused all of thise from the terribly genesis of the drama.

I was at the Church earlier today and my pastor preached regarding BUSINESS... and whereas he preached, he aforementioned we all ought to pray that we tend to be stuffed by the word of God in soul and spirit which conjointly we must always pray that our pockets be stuffed in few years to our gift life"

this esued afterwords. 

leX: in a few years time, where do you see yourself?

Annonymous: in five years time i see myself taking on my fathers business.... 

leX: why? *(Here i cut him short to caution him on why he can say thus, knowing totally well his father is alive,and in an African setting, he has an elder brother, and also a younger brother, and he had this to feature to any or all he had aforementioned earlier)*.

Annonymous: in three years time, i ought to be through with school, youth service, and possibly obtaining some real funds and undoubtedly i'll be taking on my fathers business.

Now to you my beloved blog visitor reading this straight away. Was he being too self focused and greedy? or are his visions simply to massive that he's not thinking of family before the business?

Now lets come into the text of the post and face a little scenario where we as humans get to tangle in the question of knowing our wants and being able to differentiate them all from our needs.

cymbals lexhansplace

At the point when your words sound like a conflict of cymbals, I move to the mood and offer you move as well however you are lost to the dangerous world and the greater part of its contrivances.

When I hear the tunes of triumph, I see you walking forward to war. I allure on you to see the light yet, I see you just have eyes for the fight to come.

At the point when your words affix you to trepidation and the firm grasp of yesterday clutches you. I ponder what trust there is in your today to take off.

In spite of the fact that situated, I see stars up ahead you yet standing you say they are yet lights, you appear to extinguish each smooth shine with your fluid hesitant trepidation.

What more is anticipated from me if not give you a chance to slither till you understand you are because of fly and fly you should however it may postpone.

And i was seriously thinking of what to write, i picked up my laptop and stroke my head and said to my wonderful brain that I've got to put something down for my blog visitors to come again as always and read and drop those wonderful comments.

I stare at the document i just randomly created on my Microsoft Word along with a few headings i planned on writing posts on and guess what? It reminds me of how pure the colour WHITE is and how beautiful it would be to have an all white post event, now i am gradually getting distracted and I am deviating from my proposed plan to write, I shake it off asap, then just when something pops up from my brain for me to write, I see the picture of those blog comments coming in a-plenty for every one of my blog posts along with shares of my post's on various social platforms by my visitors, then my brain recalculates and says to me { 'leX' you wanted to write a post to publish before now. }

Ok, just when am about to scribble something on the laptop my neighbour suddenly turned an announcer and begins to say different words and sentences with that loud voice of his, then as i think thats too much of a distraction from my post writing, i decide to shut my doors and windows so as to avoid listening to the sounds around me for focus.

O! I force a smile and say to myself *I MUST WRITE THIS POST TODAY FOR MY WONDERFUL VISITORS*.

I go back to my table and my laptop, with a little touch of my hands to my keypad thinking of what I planned on doing.  Guess what?

The words all just start to jump out from where they were hiding prior, at that time all the words have all grown wings and flown to fairy land for a successful process and all came back for proper post writing, i just conclude by saying...

I guess the battle was WON against distraction. ?.

Was it?

Have your say on this experience if you have had such before. 
Oduntan Stephen may appear as your regular guy, as young as he is, but the 21-year-old Pharmacist,  a typical Nigerian Dude from Ogun state Nigeria, Studying in Kakatiya University India, is the founder of one of Nigeria’s biggest Blog websites, Gistsvilla.com. He speaks with TOMTUNEZ MEDIA on his plans to reinvent the platform, challenges he has had to deal with and a whole lot of other issues.
C.E.O Gistsvilla for lexhansplace
Oduntan Stephen, C.E.O Gistsvilla
HOW did Gistsvilla come to be?

I have actually dreamt of owning a website long back when i was in ss2 that was back then in Nigeria. But unfortunately school was so strict then so i had to stay focused. I have never dreamt of becoming a science student, I had passion of becoming a computer student but things just turned out differently. I am good internet user and I was actually undergoing some training in web design. And then, I did a check and I discovered that most bloggers have no knowledge about web designing.

What they do is, they outsource their design and programming jobs to outsiders and those ones build based on their own understanding. But as one who has the knowledge, I know what is lacking in different platforms in Nigeria. So I built a website to address those challenges. That was how we started. I have opened several websites starting from Using Wapka.Mobi Platform, My first website Was Steveprofile.wapka.mobi, That was a forum site, But i had issues of marketting and having traffics because global communication was too low and expensive then. And also I just want a more advance portal website.

To be honest i learnt all this myself, I started learning all this Using 2go and i had lot of webmasters friends there. So i always write down HTMLS, CSS scripts on papers, I always tear my sheets from school and write Codes everywhere, I was just fond of Coding, Whatever i dont understand i take my time to search it on google and learn new things, It became part of me. I have created other download portal websites such as Loyalcheats.tk, Steveplanet.com which they no longer existed And others that i cant remember before i finally wanted to have a permanent site. Owning a website is my passion,  I am not after the Fame and Money. So When i got to India, I decided to stick with blogging and thats how Gistsvilla Came Up.

Why Did You Give It The Name GistsVilla?

Lets talk about mother tongue, because i have been to some places where they dont know the meaning of ‘Gists’. I think the word ‘Gists’ is a slang which means Gossips, oR Latest Trends happening around etc. So i tried to form the word with it. ‘Villa’ means a small Place, be it a community or a village. So i decided that why cant i make my site a ‘Latest Trend happening in the community’, In my Case i took Nigeria as Somewhat ‘Villa’ because We are in a small world and i also discuss about things abroad. So Gistsvilla is just like The Latest gists community as a whole website.

At what point did you realise it was something big?

I never Knew how it blew Up. I just use to hear my friends telling that my website always show up on google so i would be laughing taking it as a normal thing, Until all of a sudden i started seeing my pageviews getting higher like above 3000 views per day, When i noticed i got so much comitted.

I did most of the hardwork, then get most of the information we think Nigerians want to know. I have been doing it alone, I have only one person (Adelabu Israel) working for me. Its been 3 years now and i still believe we are just getting started.

How were you able to fund it at the beginning?

There is a quote that says ‘start anyhow’. When I started Gistsvilla back in 2015, there was no finance power. I just started anyhow I could. I started with Blogger. I was able to build a very good traffic with them. After one year, I saw that this is something promising. Then I started looking for how to raise money. I started with google adsense but with its was something i could’nt handle because i got banned 3 times. So i started with music promotion, Banner ADS,  Text ADS, Artist Promotion, and Others. That was how i started getting funds Up till now and it’s really been good. I just hope one day i will start officially advertising for big companies, but that is when my website grows big like Lindaikeji or Naijaloaded. I am having a big competition with them.

What other concept are you exploring?

What i am trying to do is that i am trying to develop some of our already existing contents to build another platform of its own like our football highlights and our Comedy Videos. We want to be bringing Members more of that because i observed it is really lacking in Nigeria, I.e Where to download latest comedy videos, Or Immediate Goals Highlights.

I want to make the website More entertaining so i decided to be based on many niches to keep members entertained. I am also a Filmmaker, Graphics Designer differently from my career as a Pharmacist. Most of all I am a gospel artist and Planning to be a professional keyboardists. I have dreams above me because as an entertainer, I must try to participate in many sections.

Who do you regard as your biggest competitor?

Let’s say I never started because of competition. I don’t play football, I don’t play games, I don’t do a lot of things. The only thing I know how to do is to surf the internet and probably send out information. I don’t really think I’m competing with anybody because what i am doing is Gistsvilla, i don’t think anybody does it. We do music, videos, football highlights, Comedy Videos , news and such, and delivering the latest concept of this in a row. I don’t think there’s any platform that combines all of them together. So we are our own competitors.

What i am trying to do is that in the next four years, I will grow all these categories. I want them to have different templates, different interface, and different audience. So I don’t think I am competing with anybody.

How do you get songs for your website?

The Nigerian entertainment industry has become more flexible. More companies are coming in. Over the past years, Nigerian musicians actually call up bloggers to put their songs on their platforms. Some even pay to have their songs in blogs. The only way they used to monetise their content was by performing in shows or tours. But for their music, they hardly make anything from it. Today because of some music streaming sites, they can monetise. Once they put out a single, they send it out to bloggers, but some top artistes like Davido don’t do that anymore.

Have You Ever Encountered Some Issues While Dealing with Gistsvilla?

Of course, The issue came up back from home when i was addicted to Mobile Phone. It gets seized many times because i blog alot, I have had sleepless nights just doing my thing. Its just passion. I have also faced many discouragements from my closed friends because i wasn’t earning at first, And i waste up money just to get tools for my website. They saw it like throwing Money away and wasting time but i didn’t give up. Hardwork and prayers really pays, and thats what got the website famous.

Sometimes i am also busy with school schedules, So i always get delayed to publish posts that are breaking and relevant, But i have fixed that issue. “Consistency is what has taken us to where we are today, Gistsvilla has over 96 per cent of its views on direct visit. This shows how vision driven we are”.

As a successful blogger, could you give us advice about blogging?

Well, I am not well successful until i am worldly known, That is my dream. I am still upcoming. Firstly, I would like to emphasized about being a consistent blogger. That is the backbone of blogging. A blogger will always face discouragement times, Lack of tools, More Insight Less Interested or Lack Of passion. But Trust me when you are very consistent without giving up, You will surely be known somehow.

Secondly Dont be too much in hurry to fame or money, Just do your thing, Everything takes time. Make sure your have backup websites that can publish your contents and have backlinks, Its a way of Getting started.

Lastly,  Make sure You have a unique niche, Soemthing you know its not common, Be it In Nigeria or worldwide, You will be ranked very well because these days there is nothing new, You just have to be focused on what you want.
