Family palava after death, we all know the stories in our traditional society . So we grew up with mum. And all I know and learnt was from mum and my elder bro. My eldest sister is my hero, she was 16 when dad died. We grew up apart for some numbers of years.

TILB: Wow! Long family chain. What do you do currently?
Valentine: Currently sorting for funds to start up my own poultry and fish farm after my sudden withdrawal from aviation school where I went to study as a pilot because of misunderstanding I had with my school at South africa. I have no other option as I lost my dream of being a a full time pilot. This is after my return from South africa and studying my PGD of which I graduated this year. Am into poultry farming but want to go on a large scale but the funds ain’t coming through. Honestly if I have my way am going back to flying. And currently working on my book called the Diary of an air Pilot. It’s all about my experience in the aviation industry, racism issues and general aviation pitfalls for youngsters going into aviation and advice to people venturing into aviation
TILB: You’ve got dreams, Val, we hope and pray you achieve them. What do you do for fun?
Valentine: I do basketball ball for fun
TILB: Nice you must be tall then
Valentine: 5ft something
TILB: Tell us about your ideal woman
Valentine: A goal getter, strong disciplinarian and value and moral inscripted. My choices are between a female pilot and a medical doctor preferably from Kenya, south africa, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. I love Kenya and Ethiopia because their chics so have a killer shape and are Ebony too. I love ebony chic. Their version are in the ijaw area of delta state. South africa chics also have a nice and killer shape too. The coke is a perfect description of my ideal woman. Dark and curvy.
TILB: Nice specifications. So does that mean you are on the hunt for her?
Valentine: Hmm. Kinda
TILB: Kinda? Sounds as though you aren’t ready for your ideal woman
Valentine: Kinda means 50/50 chasing my dreams is my first priority, and my taste I bet you is quite high
TILB: Really?, Hope you also have what your taste requires. Because it’s 50/50, you can’t ask for what you can’t give
Valentine: I definitely do, it’s actually not about material things, but character and vision driven and passionate woman with morals and value inscripted just as I said earlier
TILB: Nice. Now let’s go over to the blog. How did you know about Laila’s blog?
Valentine: Through the Internet. I was searching for some blog s and I stumbled upon it
TILB: What do you think about the blog generally?
Valentine: It’s a community of friends. It’s a family
TILB: Who is/are your favorite blog readers?
Valentine: Mira Monroe. She’s an intelligent women. Doesn’t speak without thinking nor write for the sake of writing. Would love to meet her
TILB: Hey Mira! Val wants to meet you
TILB: Is there anything you don’t like about the blog or something you want added?
Valentine: I think a column for health and wellness should be included, I do want it to be unique from other blogs but funny enough all Nigeria blogs do copy and paste.
TILB: Alright, we are working towards that. Describe yourself in 5 words
Valentine: Am a goal getter and excellence driven person
TILB: Who is your favorite Nigerian celebrity and why?
Valentine: Timi dakolo. He doesn’t sing for just the season but what would outlived him, the words are deep.
TILB: What do you think about Nigeria
Valentine: We have to change our attitude towards ourselves. What we say about our nation. No one would build the nation for us. Let’s stop tearing our country down
TILB: So you won’t take a chance of relocating from Nigeria to find ‘greener pastures’?
Valentine: There’s is no country as good as Nigeria my dear. When you leave the shores of Nigeria you will understand. But honestly I would be relocating to South africa soon precisely port Elizabeth to continue flying. As a leisure pilot. That would enable me work in the tourism industry. In combination with photography your millions would be rolling down
TILB: Nice one. Any final words for Lailans?
Valentine: Guys keep the love
TILB: It was nice getting to know you Val…
