GIVEAWAY: Ofili's second book - How Laziness Saved My Life

Thank you ALL so much for all the congratulatory messages on the move to "our" new address. I truly appreciate it.  May God make you bigger? Yes, may God make you bigger! Make yourself right at home. No, you cannot put your feet up on the coffee table *glares at offending visitor*

As promised, today I am giving away Okechukwu Ofili's second (and latest) book, "How Laziness Saved My Life." Just in case you do not know who Ofili is, here is some brief information on him in his own words: "Ofili is an award winning coffee drinker motivational speaker, author, success coach and spy entrepreneur who blogs about life, success and entrepreneurial excellence." [Source] His words, not mine. Yes, even the words with the strike through across them are his words. The word "Source" is not.

Unfortunately this book that I am already giving away has not even arrived in my hands yet :-( 

I ordered it on Amazon about a week ago, but it is a "pre-order" meaning the book will not be released or shipped to me until May 28, 2012.  The delayed release date is because of a print error, and Ofili's convictions about quality and practicing what he preaches.  Another reason to read the book, ba?

Anyway, I thought I would let you know all that before laying down the 3 simple rules for the giveaway. You must:
  1. Like my Facebook Page and state your Facebook Name in the comment section. For easy access, check it out in the sidebar. If you wan "waka" small, you can use this link instead:
  2. Live in North America, i.e. US, Canada, Mexico (I apologize in advance for all those who will vex for me on this note, but I intend to extend future giveaways to just about everyone, anywhere. Yes, even in the North Pole).
  3. Answer this Question: Name ONE song (and the artiste if you know his or her name) you listened to in the last 24 hours. 
That, my friends, is all. Oh, wait, I have not told you the deadline yet.

Since the book will not be released until May 28, 2012, that is the deadline to submit your entry.

I repeat:

DEADLINE: May, 28, 2012

To enter this giveaway, just follow the rules above and answer the question in the comment section below. I will randomly pick a number and announce the winner the day after the deadline. The winner will be contacted using the e-mail address used to enter his or her comment, so please use a working e-mail address.

That is all for now o. All the best, guys!

I hope I get to win a copy :)


 lol @Ofili wanting to win. That guy sounds like a trip. Ewo ni award winning coffee drinker lol smh. Well, since i have been geographically disqualified, i shall say all the best to everyone then *still pouting*

like seriously? north america? not fair
ermm, Mr Ofili, win ke?
may the luckiest win

Of course, I will vex. Why didn't you just order from amazon and ask them to ship to Nigerian addresses, if the winner resides in Nigeria. After all, amazon ships to Nigeria. Ahn ahn, it shouldnt be that hard naa.

Na wa ooo...

Atilola: That was my first option but I chose not to do that because even if I gift wrap it, my real name will show as the sender. It would also have been cheaper that way but this is the route I have chosen for now. I hope that makes sense :-)

Congrats to Ofili, and I hope I win.

I listened to Brymo Ara's Remix by one guy like that.

And yes o, congrats on your new domain, may it be the continuation of more great stuff!

I want to win, but i feel like it will be selfish of me to enter... the dilemma. How is my Ibeji doing? 


Thanks Myne! Appreciate the support!


I don't think amazon ship to Nigeria. But I can get the book for you to anywhere in Migeria...except where bokoharam lives (just jokin). Do let me know if you need any help. We want to keep ur identity secret cough cough.


*pouty mouth* Relentless we want our own too o. :-) Wish the potential winners all the best!

No wonder I cannot find you on my Google reader. You moved apartments. I came on here to scold you again into action, lo and behold. Okay, I will update you. lol

I want Ofili's book and if you dare give it to will hear from me.
My facebook name is JostWrite and I live in the North America and in addition, I danced to "Chop my Money" by PSquare, Akon and MayD. 

You have been tagged so please check my blog for details :)

Ofili:  You know that's not going to "werk."  If you win your own book, I am afraid the angry bird teddy thingies will come alive at night, carry it away and sell it on Ebay ... to the highest bidder.  So you see, you can't win your own book :-)

Toin: LOL, ba? I suspect the award winning coffee drinker (and spy) part is not really a typo, but is true.  But I don't have proof ... YET! 

Geographically disqualified? Ahn ahn, don't put it like that now.  No more pouting jare.  There will be more giveaways to win beginning in June.  Thanks for being such a good sport :-)

Lue:  Yeah, there will be more giveaways everyone can participate in beginning in June.  Don't worry, Ofili cannot win his own book.  He knows that!

Ofili: Why are you coughing? There must be something in the air ... LOL at keeping my identity secret.  Last time I checked you offered a CASH reward for information on my identity.  I smell a conspiracy!

Meanwhile,  thanks for offering to help.  I will let you know if I do need help with this.  Plus, I was not even banking on Amazon shipping to Nigeria.  Shipping to Nigeria should not be a problem though.

Myne:  Thanks for participating.  I appreciate your support and will let you know if you win :-)

Myne:  Yes o, I hope and pray so too! Thanks for the good wishes and your support.

9jaFoodie: Dilemma ke? Hmmmm ... But I have to respect your wishes sha. Your ibeji is doing fine o.  Body dey inside cloth.  Thanks for asking :-)

Michael:  You too?! Okay, beginning in June, everyone can participate in the giveaways.  I guess you can "un-pout" now.  Yes, all the best to the potential winners!

AdeOla: LOL! So you were coming here to scold me ... God is on my side! Please update accordingly.  Though I am surprised you couldn't find me sha.  This thing was supposed to update automatically.  We shall see.

Ah, you no even mince words! LOL at "I want Ofili's book."  I dare not give it to Ofili.  You sound like you would knock the wind out of me if I did such a thing.  Ofili can't win his book anyway ... Unless he uses another name ... *smh*

I have taken note of your entry and shall notify you if you win.  Thanks for participating o! I appreciate your support.

LDP: You too? Don't worry.  From June you will be able to participate. 

Toin:  Thanks a lot ma'am.  I have answered your questions o --->>>

ahh look like i shall be ordering this soon...i don't have a YSU facebook though so i im automatically disqualified since I can't really use my real identity facebook :(...Congrat to our winner in advance :)

Yellow Sisi:  Awww! But, I understand, seeing that I myself am not exactly putting my real name here.  Please order the book if you can.  I am sure Ofili will appreciate the support.
