Cyprian Josson

We are passionate people on this website. Passion is the driving force in anything we do in the world of creativity. What does it mean to be passionate in life? I believe the best way to answer this question is to use my own example. Right from my young age I created the habit of reading any book on the shelf, books like James Hardly Chase, the Saint, Shakespeare plays, African authors such as Cyprian Ekwensi, Chinua Achebe, Charles Dickens and more… The attitude of reading at this period and until now is one of my secret weapons against ignorance. Why? Because reading is writing, no more, no less!

To be passionate about things you love is a subtle way to build your image. That has been my case since childhood. I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth. When I was a teenager, I used to play basketball with American kids in the city of Ibadan, Nigeria. There were some rich black kids with them too. I was a poor kid compared to them. But they were my inferiors when I open my mouth to talk about the books I have read which gave me the status of a Storyteller. They were amazed and just for my knowledge they accepted me in their snobbish world. Some would offer me something to drink and in exchange I will share some passages of “Oliver Twist” by Charles Dickens with them. Passion can lead to many things and finally you can turn it into cash because people would like to offer you money for your services. CONTINUES…….
