CELEBRATING TOPAZO, DOCTOR AND POET

Tope Ogundare, doctor and poet, or do we simply say Topazo? Author of the Z Channel, we met on those days at Naija Stories and he has continued to grow in many ways. Not one of the aggressive ones, his works speak with power as he lets his heart out on many issues… But wait, this is not meant to be a blurb, abi? πŸ™‚

It is another birthday. Actually, the birthday was yesterday. Like many others, I celebrate this spirited Nigerian who is working against time, nature and a million other forces to make all things right for himself and all those around him.

Did I mention that the manuscript for his poetry collection,Β The Book of Pain is lurking somewhere about to hit the shelves? Ooops! He writes good short stories and poems. You really should watch out for his book.

Happy Birthday Topazo. May the heavens be kind.

  1. Aw! This is such a grand and noble gesture Su’eddie and here’s wishing the Celebrant and a brother and friend…Dr. Temitope Ogundare many more years in great health of mind, body and soul in every area and sphere of his life. May all of his dreams, expectations and aspirations in accordance to the Perfect Will of He who us made; come to full physical manifestation in this spanking new season of his existence IJN, AMEN. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜„

    Plus, tis safe to say the ultimate or shall I say the quintessential writing experience for most Writers on this plain’s to go from Bloggers to Authors and then Bestsellers! I live…breathe for that day when I behold that beautiful name..’Tope Ogundare’ inscribed in aesthetical letterings on not just one book; but several! Can hardly wait! 😁
    Here’s hoping by God’s Special Grace that the said day comes sooner, when it’d be reported that his debut effort… ‘The Book Of Pain’, is not only hit the shelves; but is in actual fact heating it up! πŸ˜‚
    So I say to you Birthday Bwoi, go on ahead and drop it like a hot temperature….you know, more like sizzling ‘hawt’, 😈 cause you were born to do this! Write. Rock. Rule. Win! 😁❀

    Thanks again Su, and enjoy! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜„

  3. Reblogged this on Straight From The Heart and commented:
    In the VERY wise words of the literary Icon and Legend that’s ‘The’ Sensational Maya Angelou of blessed memory; she did assert this….’That the desire to reach for the stars she considers mighty ambitious, while the desire to reach hearts on the other hand’s pretty wise’!

    When You, Dr. Temitope Ogundare ventured out here to do your ‘thang’…write, I’d never know if You’d planned on reaching for the stars with Your heart-feeling and heart-filling Monster and Masterpieces respectively; 😁 however, what I’d beat my chest to knowing, is the fact that You touched my heart Awesome Poet πŸ˜‡; and that Sir…is beyond wise…just as You’ve always been! β€πŸ˜„

    Here’s wishing You a super-amazing new season of your life that’d see Your deepest desires and dreams coming true…right before Your very eyes! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜Š

    May Your aura continually shine brightly over the wide expanse of the luminous sky and may Your creative sparks keep glowing and burning red hot! πŸ˜€

    Many Hearty and Happy Cheers to You Doc πŸΉπŸŽ‚….Mwah! β€πŸ˜„

        3. Hehehe. If anything, I like that you admitted to have asked that singular question one time too many! It goes without saying then that to have gotten blown off this many times, it must mean that this ‘question for the gods’ 😩, I consider ahem…rhetorical perhaps??? πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜†

          In other news, ‘Slip of thought’ huh?😯 And I’d never thought to say or do this but…πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ Nicely played Sir, REAL nice! πŸ˜‚
