The other day I was at a friend’s house, we were doing some projects together. It was a video project and I was supplying the script, while I dictated the words he wrote them on his diary book, the huge corporate type diaries. Everything was going along fine until my name came up in the script.
It was Thursday afternoon, my favourite day of the week, when I received a call from my cousin Hamida telling me about some writing event that was about to go down.
It was a Talent Show for writers and naturally that peaked my interest.
It is a fascinating time we live in, where knowledge and data is growing at a tremendous rate. Yet, at the same time rife with wars, famine, poverty and other human actions that result in devastating consequences. While this is happening the world over, some had it worse than others, to be specific, the colonized countries suffer the most, our Arewa included. But interestingly, where some saw disasters, others saw instead an opportunity, an opportunity to grow, to adapt and to succeed as businessmen and entrepreneurs.
At really cheap rates, you can get very good and affordable t-shirts that are printed and customized specifically to your taste. Custom t-shirt designs are incredibly popular in Nigeria thanks to everyone’s innate sense of personality and the need to express it.
That sense of personality is what breeds the idea of wanting to own a tshirt that expresses YOU, and what you believe in. Many people personalize it by printing their names on the t-shirts, or by having one for their birthdays or school graduations.
I am a young Muslim freelance writer, born ‘93 in Bauchi. I enjoy creativity, and have a knack for remarkable stuff in tech, entrepreneurship, online marketing, eco-friendliness, branding and design. I dabble in poetry, and in my free time build electronics.
A content creator and copywriter based in Bauchi-Nigeria, I write content for blogs, startups and ecommerce businesses to satisfy their marketing needs, I can equally do same for you (or your business). I have written quite a few articles related to Instagram marketing, Shopify ecommerce, social listening, B2C marketing, branding and so on. I understand the need to appeal to a certain demographic or target audience and so create content that matches with those demands.
Content I create are easy to understand by average readers, SEO friendly and generate a generous traffic, and are highly researched.

Check out some of my work on medium and my website youngemirates.com, I have topics such as ‘Copywriting Like a Philosophical Dude' and ‘I Just Realised I am not Gangster Enough' lined up there. My article ‘How to Start Turkey Rearing in Nigeria’ from wealthresult.com is topping google search results. Read more.
The traffic aspect is important but I worry more about the ‘quality’ of content I create for clients.

During one very hot day I found myself travelling to an even hotter part of the country, Azare, an arid desert. The folks there will not admit it but it is a freaking village. I and a friend Suleiman were visiting someone and we were going to celebrate the Eid there. I was anticipating the fun.
Our bus was swiftly cutting through the heat waves that seem to look as if they would roast a chicken.
I have never been that excited about school in my life, as I waited anxiously for Monday morning to approach, that has never happened. I was about 10 years old at the time and it was the night prior to showing my teacher the first ever story I wrote, correction, the first ever anything I wrote.
Somewhere around the middle of last year which was around the same time I started Instagram I followed an Instagram profile, it was a photographer’s, I was drawn by his unique talent for capturing moments that share people’s stories and experiences, his photos have this angle that feels creative, out of the box and really
Am pretty sure Dan Fodio is rolling in his grave, as we dance and take delight in really awfully produced Hausa tunes. Terrible beat choices, terrible video, terrible playback and lately coupled with some really agonising animation. Don’t even ask about the singing skills of the performers . . . terrible.
On the 30th of this month September, a big event is looming its head to Bauchi state. Big not in the sense that stadiums will have no where you could fit, but the ‘moving Bauchi and the entire northern sector of the country forward’ kind of big.
The state has had its fair share of business related events held at different intervals this same year. But this categorically stands out from the fun fairs and entertainment shenanigans Bauchi has gotten used to this past year.
