I will leave this right here. Once, I heard you cannot if you are of a certain breed or from a certain pack. But the narrative changes, when you tell yourself where you are heading. Guess what, time and the universe will begin to work in your favor. Just keep your eye on the goal, heaven is listening. Even though it is not looking up at the moment. Do not be discouraged. Though it tarry it will come to pass. And when you get a small window of opportunity, give it all you have and tell yourself. This is just the beginning of greater things are ahead. Because you never know who is watching. #stayencouraged #believe #positive
Greenleaf premiered on the Oprah Winfrey Network on June 21, 2016 and is currently in its 3rd season. It follows the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family with scandalous secrets and lies, and their sprawling Memphis megachurch with predominantly African-American members. The series’ lead characters are Bishop James Greenleaf (David) and Lady Mae Greenleaf (Whitfield), who are the patriarch and matriarch of the Greenleaf family, and Grace Greenleaf (Dandridge), their estranged daughter who has returned home after 20 years following the mysterious death of her sister, Faith.
In a clip deployed by the actor on his handle, Benjamin plays the character ‘Mr. Joseph Obi,’ the new accountant to the Greenleaf Dynasty. His role sees him acting opposite Kim Hawthorne, who plays the role of Kerissa in the drama series and Lamman Rucker.

This right here was a humbling moment for me. Only God can make such things happen. As long as you maintain a positive mental attitude. Nothing is impossible. You just keep going. It might not happen immediately, but it sure will. This was a proud moment for Nigeria and Africa at large to see us well represented. This is just the beginning. Greatness awaits those who will rise in the morning and soar with the winds of beauty. Thank you @owntv @greenleafown @lionsgatetv for putting me on this .
