TERRIFIC HEADLINES — SILENT HEROES SERIES HIGH CHIEF JIMOH BURAIMOH – THE FIRST AFRICAN BEAD PAINTER The Creative Edge’ a book released recently into the market by Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo is a ‘’must read’’ given the highly valuable information contained in the publication that has the potential of changing the thinking of Africans. Only thinkers write and the depth of the research findings contained in the book shows conclusively that the author reads widely.  One of the highlights of ‘The Creative Edge’ is the assertion that human beings possess innate creative abilities, and goes ahead to ‘’demonstrate how our experiences and approach to life can hinder these abilities.’’  It is possible for a highly talented personality to die without discovering and utilizing his/her talents for the benefit of humanity.

Facebook stands as 400 billion US dollars and on 30 May 2018, Alphabet Inc., Google’s parent company, was valued at 739 billion US dollars. ‘’These 4 companies, in 2018, were valued at a total of approximately 2.9 trillion US dollars. Ironically, the four companies did not exist 40 years ago and Facebook, as at 2018, was only 4 years old’’  INCOMES OF FOUR BIG COMPANIES IN THE UNITED STATES GREATER THAN THAT OF AFRICA: Interestingly, the income of those four companies supersedes that of African nations.  The African Union’s economy totals US$1.515 trillion, ranking it 11th after Russia.
