Remembering The King Of Pop..

 Michael Jackson continues to inspire people in every corner of the world as someone who chose to use the extraordinary gifts and talents he was blessed with to deliver messages of hope, love and peace. Michael's legacy is more than his remarkable artistic accomplishments. It also includes an indescribably unique spirit that still connects Michael today with countless fans in a way that knows no borders, no cultural barriers and which speaks a common language of unity and compassion. Our thoughts and prayers are especially with his children as we fondly remember the Michael Jackson whose friendship, humor and kindness joyously touched so many lives.

I became an M.J fan in August 1994 when i saw Bad`s Music video for the 1st time,all i  remembered about him before then was that,he was  the guy in a poster at a record store,who wore a fancy black leather jacket & had a long curly hair. The closest view i got then was through the school bus window. I was little and did not know much about him,i was even lucky to have seen that video coz my friends just arrived from  the states and apart the cool toys they brought,M.J`s tape was the coolest coz it had most of his dance routines on it.

The moon walk to us was like magic,we had to rewind times over but still could not do it. We gave up the dream of showing off when school reopened. Some weeks after resumption i over heard some seniors talk about a superstition floating around then,that U have to go bury some coins at the beach before you would be able to do dance like M.J. At last i knew there was hope,after school i met my friends and told them. 

They looked puzzled after hearing the news. Bury coins at the beach??, how are we going to do that???? they asked,my wide smile slowly turned into a frown. I guess i got carried away coz come to think of it, non of us received money at that time & even if we did,how were we suppose to tell our parents about our mission at the beach ??. we had our lunch boxes,fruit juice plus our parents paid so we get fed in school too."Mission Impossible 6" lol

The only time i received money was on sundays,that was for offertory and there was no way i could even hide that coz my dad mostly waited till its collection time before pulling out 1 note from his wallet and then march me to the box. I had to wait till Christmas coz i`m 1000000% sure i would get money from relatives who came visiting . Christmas was too far plus even if it wasn`t,i still had 1 problem & that problem was that i lived with a ROMAN TAX COLLECTOR "my mum",my only hope was that they hand me the cash in her absence but no!!!!! what they gave me wasn`t so much but they always wanted my both parents to be around before handing me the cash. Pissed much!!. Its not a Grammy or an Oscar for crying out loud. As usual she waits till they gone,takes the money whiles telling me the exact same story she has been telling me since she resumed office as a ROMAN TAX COLLECTOR. "let me keep it, add more money and buy you your favorite toy". I reluctantly gave it to her but never spared that mean look ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER gave in the COMMANDO movie when he was being put on the plane against his will. "In my mum`s defense,she always bought my toys even when relatives don`t hand me cash"

I gave up the M`J dance dream that Christmas,joining my buddies on the loser bench coz they gave up theirs months earlier. At least that made me the tough guy coz i did not give until all hope was completely lost. After Christmas break we removed our loser tags coz we heard some guys claimed they buried coins and still can`t dance like M` Happy again we adopted the new trick of wiping our terrazzo floor clean,pouring dustin powder on it,put on an old sneaker which had less friction and just Moon walk like M`J. Yes!!! we could do the moon walk but at the expense of our mama`s Dustin powders.Guess its true what they say,there is a price you pay for everything.

Today marks M.J`s 2nd anniversary and below are lines from his song, "Will You Be There" which is one of my favorites. He is the King of Pop & i know he is now with "THE KING OF KINGS & THE LORD OF LORDS".      May His Soul Rest In Perfect Peace.

In Our Darkest Hour
In My Deepest Despair
Will You Still Care?
Will You Be There?
In My Trials
And My Tripulations
Through Our Doubts
And Frustrations
In My Violence
In My Turbulence
Through My Fear
And My Confessions
In My Anguish And My Pain
Through My Joy And My Sorrow
In The Promise Of Another Tomorrow
I'll Never Let You Part
For You're Always In My Heart.

Please feel free to share your M.J memories,I would love to hear Them....

Hello Blogsville!!!! How was your weekend???. Mine  was Okay although i was a little furious i did not get too many Happy Father`s Day text Messages, i mean i am an up coming young man and some day i`m gonna become a father plus when it was Mother`s day i wished all Females including my 9 month old cousin Happy Mother`s Day. I noticed how those who never had the love they should or never knew their dads said of sort of trashy things about their dads on Twitter,to make matters worse i went over to my mum`s and  it was like any regular day apart from some fun memories we shared about my dad. Before leaving i asked her why she did not send me a Happy Father`s Day text message or even call me to wish me and she said because you are not Married with kids son. I just smiled at her and she smiled back too,if only she knew how many Straight Jabs,Bicycle Kicks,Upper cuts & headbutts she had received in my head,i bet she wouldn`t "jokes".  

I told her to remind me the last time she thought of leaving the operating theater & travel just  to show up for  my kid Brother`s P.T.A meeting without pressure from the school,she looked up and maybe  after some sincere thinking or just wants me to leave in peace or sleep well that night she said Happy Father`s Day. So to all women please, biko ,ejòwó, Meh-paa-chow, ofaine ,请 ,주시기 바랍니다 "had to beg in different languages" encourage us up and coming guys by wishing us a Happy Fathers day or acknowledge every fatherly duty or role we play,it only makes the thoughts of becoming 1 less Scary for Us. Signed my ROYAL SELF, DiDi :)

Now to my main post ..Inspiration,as defined by is..
  1. [noun] arousal of the mind to special unusual activity or creativity
  2. [noun] a product of your creative thinking and work; "he had little respect for the inspirations of other artists"; "after years of work his brainchild was a tangible reality"

  3. [noun] a sudden intuition as part of solving a problem
  4. [noun] (theology) a special influence of a divinity on the minds of human beings; "they believe that the books of Scripture were written under divine guidance"

  5. [noun] arousing to a particular emotion or action
I guess we all need Inspiration to go about our daily business. Although its summer  and most of us are either resting, travelling or partying. we all still need that daily dose of Inspiration . Below is my Favorite Inspirational poem by Ian Kennedy  & a few Inspirational pictures i use as Screensaver.

 Inspiration by the light of day, 
Inspiration to make me pray.
Inspiration in my willingness to give, 
Inspiration to move on and live! 
Inspiration to tell my story, 
Inspiration because there is no glory.
Inspiration comes from deep within, 
Inspiration from sorrow and sin.
Inspiration makes this real, 
Inspiration is how i feel.
Inspiration can come from rain, 
Inspiration takes my pain

Enjoy and have a blessed and Fruitful week...GOD BLESS YOU.

Who am i ????

 Hello Blogsville!!!!. How is everybody doing???? How is your weekend ???? Mine has been fun so far coz its Summer Break and that means NO to SLEEP and YES to PARTY. I noticed i did not give a formal introduction when i joined the blogging world and so i decided to write about myself..Likes,Dislikes,weird stuffs and random things.....

 My name is "DiDi" Darling-Dennis OluwaTayo Kudadze .I was born in Lagos State to a Nigerian dad & Ghanaian mum. The 1st of 4 kids, was once a Muslim but later converted to a Christian. Did not know whats up back then all i knew was i loved my DADDY to the Max and so whatever he does,i do tooo. 

I Started playing football @ age 8  for PEPSI FOOTBALL ACADEMY ,after 2 years  i had my 1st ever International transfer to a British owned football academy in Ghana NETWORK ACADEMY where i played in various divisions till i went away on Loan to Eagle Giants Fc. This was the first time my mum who is now my manager showed interest when it came to me playing football.Before i move on, let me tell you a little bit about my MUM.

My mother is 1 of those no non-sense ,slap that taste out of your mouth, flog the evil out of your heart and because i say so type of person,she never gave room for explanation. For that i did not like her that much, my dad has always been my best friend but the sad thing was he traveled alot and  for this reason i had to occupy myself till my dad gets back. My mum dashed me to the Catholic church we attended "NO JOKE", her reason was that i was too stubborn and so the Rev.Fathers would help shape me.In my defense i would say she did not understand me at all .I am the type who believes you have no right to make me do things and your reason is BECAUSE I SAY SO. Although i was young,i did not tolerate that.  I became a Mass server,lived in the Mission house for years. My daddy asked if i was okay there and i said yes because apart from attending training sessions and doing chores around the mission house & Church, the FOOD was AWESOME!!!. "don`t blame me lol"..I did not want to go back to my mum plus was confused by OYIMBO FOOD "western dishes"..Anyway all that passed and i`m happy because i had alot  of exposure and experience. 2 years ago she gave me a Random phone call and apologized for all she put me through when i was  little . I told her it was Okay and for the 1st time told her I LOVED HER. I was glad she did though because although i loved her,i never shared a roof with her since my early teens even when we moved to Ghana..WE ARE BEST FRIENDS NOW.

My dad  "May his soul rest in Peace" Was a loving man!. Although we had our moments,he was the coolest. He was calm and always ready to talk about anything,YES ANYTHING..this dude started SEX education when i was 9 after discovering an IKEBE SUPER mag in my Drawer..what i love the most about him was he always spends time with my siblings and i just to catch up with what he has missed whiles he was away & the level of Confidentiality,his lips were always sealed no matter how mad he is at me or no matter what i have done,he never believed in whooping my ass,he did more talking which always makes me break done in tears unlike MAMA ALMIGHTY who knows the right combo combinations to a perfect ..i could go on and On..Sadly he was poisoned in 2001,the main reason we Moved to Ghana.

Now my name, It took a Looooooooooooooooooooooooong while for me to get comfortable with the name DARLING-DENNIS.,i mean of all the names in the world my parents decided to add DARLING to my DENNIS forgetting how its like to attend school in Nigeria with a name like that, Only the white kids found it cool back then. The rest of the kids kept inventing names for me..Like DING DONG, DODO"fried plantain",DiDiRiN "forgotten what is really means but i`m sure it has to do with being dumb". Once asked my mum why they decided to give me that name and all she said was at the right time she would tell me. This is 1 thing i dislike about older folks,they will hold on to something as if its the 8th wonder of the world. Anyway i`m still waiting for her response,when she tells me i will let you know too. I`m loving the name Now more that Ever well coz they Ladies Finds this plus it always get me attention, Some GOOD and some BAD.

Now to things i like ..I like to clean,scrub "whenever i`m pissed or bored,the bathroom tiles suffer",do my laundry. I like asking  questions coz i hate it when i don`t know ,I don`t play with my Music,i listen to all kinds of Music even the ones in languages i don`t understand. I like all kinds of Movies but Horror ones,i don`t see scaring me as entertainment. I read alot,from religious books to Mags to School Books "which i haven`t done since i dropped out of Uni in 2007,don`t be alarmed coz i`m going back or let me say i`m back already" . If you notice i`m following countless blogs,believe it or not i read all the posts they have up,the only time i don`t is when i`m handicapped gadget wise . I like people who would look me in the eye and tell me you did this or did that and for that i`m hurt,i would explain what prompted that Action at the said time, apologize and we move on. But if you are 1 of those who always want to Pyramid of Giza delivered to your door before accepting the apology then i can assure you would need more than 1 life time for that to happen. I like to hang out at the beach whenever i`m bored,slept there countless times coz i just enjoy the breeze although it gets CRAZY cold from around 2 to 5 am "a habit i picked from my dad".  I like to Travelling,meeting new people and experiencing different way of life, don`t mind going on a trip and coming back home Broke . I like Sneakers,by liking i don`t mean 1 ,2,3 pairs..i`m talking 30 to 40 and counting..Some believe its a problem but i think they have to mind their business.,I like to check up on friends and Family everyday especially family ..."let me cut this Short coz i don`t think i will ever finish ."

Dislikes...I don`t like people who behave as if they are holier than thou,Hugging Bible/Quran  24/7 & passing judgments on people who don things we believe ain`t morally right. Its by his grace we all wake up everyday and it hurts when i see some people walk around as if they have earned it. I believe no matter how bad people might be,we are not different from them and the best we can do for them is Pray for them. I don`t like the smell of Fresh fish,if i have to eat fish then it has to be canned. I don`t like selfish me me me, we can never get along. I dislike people who Brag,who don`t show appreciation ,who find it hard to say SORRY,THANKS & PLEASE,who thinks the world revolves around them and to my super dumb ones who thinks the sun needs their permission to shine or the rain needs their permission to fall.

Some of my best kept secret...All my life i have fought just 3 times which offcourse was in primary school, out of these 3 fights i lost the 1st one to a GIRL at the Play ground..Wait before u start  laughing,this  Calabar girl was short but STRONG JEEZ!!! , i thought i could beat her up without trying just to gain some sort of reputation but my people God had a different plan for me. She managed to get me to the ground,sat on me & fed me with white sand. I was saved by the bell that signaled that break was over..the other 2 went in my favor,funny jokes about my name started the fight.

I have NEVER bought a gift for any girl apart from my sister and MaMa on Valentines Day,I know u gonna wonder why. I haven`t had a relationship within that period.. Still on girls,I have dated just 2 black girls,a South African & a Kenyan.,the rest?? yes your guess is as good as mine.I have never dumped anyone before we always break up coz she or I have to move and she can`t do distant relationship and all sort of i always ask, what  if we were married and i have to travel?? would you Divorce me and re-marry?? Guess that's just my luck. well  i`m single at the moment and not looking for now but when i`m ready my new girl have to let me know what she would do if she or myself had to travel to a different country. Lastly I`m extra careful on my Birthday coz i have had 2 near death experiences on  this day. 

Theres more but i think this is enough to set the ball rolling....
