Small Chops: Influence

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like.

Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine

My cousin copied me, by customising her phone case (with her sister’s jewellery lol). She had asked me to customise her case for her, I said no…

Only for her to do this:


Never under estimate the influence you have on people, especially younger people. Be sure that the influence you have is positive or brings about positive outcomes.

Pimp my case

Nothing pleases me more than seeing both my brothers interact – between them there is an age gap of 11 years. I see how much my youngest brother wants to be like my younger brother. From the way he talks, to how he dresses and even to what he aspires to. The relationship they have is influential through and through. They influence each other. My younger brother may not know it but he has matured and honed in some remarkable skills that have many younger children respect him (skills and traits that work well should he become a father). Witnessing my how in awe my youngest brother is of my younger brother, makes it more clear to me why young people need positive (ideally God-honouring) role models. (Man they even look like it’s crazy).


Truth is, someone is always watching and Influence is subtle…

Who is watching you? Who are YOU watching?
