One of the major challenges an initiator of an idea faces is to have people buy into the initiative and then, in turn, get the support from not only friends, but mentors like the former President, Chief Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo, who today, gave his complete and total support to Africa’s first female talking drummer, Ara Olamuyiwa.

Ara, had today, paid a courtesy visit to her father and mentor, Chief Obasanjo, to intimate him and get his blessings for her new project, a reality show for those she prefers to call ‘Good Boys and good Girls” in Lagos for a start.

According to what she had told “Precious Eze’s Blog” earlier, “EKO INSPIRE M” with Ara, aimed at saving young Lagosians who have helplessly resigned themselves to the darkness of street-life and she prefers to refer to street-dwelling youngsters as ‘good boys and girls’.

She says ‘The reality show is a multi-phased process that will feature talent-based competitive selection of ‘good boys and girls’ from the 'flash points' of Lagos State. 

In his response, the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo says that he was impressed with the idea of the “EKO INSPIRE ME by Ara, stating that in life, there are not bad boys or bad girls, but environment, promising to give all it would take to make sure the project comes to fruition.

The former President, Chief Obasanjo used the opportunity of the courtesy to congratulate the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the support he has given the “Eko Inspire Me” by Aras a far and asked other state governments to emulate the Governor of Lagos in making sure the project goes across other state with ‘Ogun Inspire Me, Osun Inspire Me, Enugu Inspire Me or Kano Inspire Me by Ara.

EKO INSPIRE ME” by Ara is a Lagos-wide and continuous exercise that will duly travel across Nigeria with emerging support from institutions and persons of high privilege who seek to give back to society’.
