Noone likes being taken for a fool and these days on social media, it is possible to fall for that trap- following an impersonator.
How can you ensure you are following the right person?
1. Verification.
This is of course the best and easiest way.
2. Google their handles.
Frequently when i want to follow a public personality, i google their name and 'twitter' or 'instagram'. You are more likely to get the genuine handle that way.

3. Check their followers and following.
Who is this handle you are checking out following? Fellow confirmed / verified celebs? And who is following them? Note that spam accounts sometimes use names of popular people to get attention but you can tell who is genuine by who follows them.

4. Check their posts.
If they are tweeting links to random things, it probably is not them. Check what they post and say before you follow!

5. What are they asking for?
Come on people. Do not pay someone who asks for cash for anything suspicious, eg auditions, label signings, prayers etc.
This list is NOT exhaustive ; s.h.a.r.e what you look out for with me.

In conclusion though, the golden rule is to always shine your eye!!!

So, how firm is your handshake? Lol. Ever actually thought about it?
Do you know when you meet people and shake hands, you communicate fear, confidence, interest or dismissal?
Master your handshake so when you shake hands you are basically declaring you are warm, friendly and ready for business.

Make it firm, time it so it lasts just about right and depending on the culture, smile and then let go. (In some cultures, eye contact is limited so do check ahead).

So, how good is your handshake on a scale of 1 to 10?

#Pioneers fascinate me.

The idea that someone did something noone else was doing. LIke the first man to walk on the moon.

Or did something people did already, but in a different way. Like Richard Branson and Virgin Airlines).

Successful pioneers may suffer (no blue print to follow, people mocking and discouraging you or downright trying to stop you, taking that gamble etc...) but when you are the first to do something well, your name is going to be written in history books... (Read more in today's #blogpost - )

Tosyn is a bundle of contradictions.
As she says it, she is a young girl with an old mind, a tomboy who likes to dress up, a black girl who loves rock music, a leo (natural leader) who likes to follow (last born syndrome), an extroverted introvert, and so on!

Bragging rights
Tosyn survived secondary school as the shortest girl in her set! She is also the only girl handling a morning radio show on her own in Nigeria! Sickle Strong! And she just hit the seventy thousand plus mark on google plus! Yay! Plus, I got shout outs on two MI Abaga albums
