What a Life” (published by AuthorHouse UK) tells the story of author and veteran broadcaster Emmanuel Essien, also known as Mannie d’Maestro, on his path to success, spanning a career that took him from singing to prominent Nigerian radio personality. Essien also shares his journey pursuing a music career, chronicling the business opportunities that led him to radio.

Essien hopes his experience will inspire readers to maintain focus and perseverance in chasing their dreams. He encourages others to keep their “faith and the craving to be adventurous in anything they want to achieve out of life.”

An excerpt from “What a Life”:
Tell me, did you ever rise in the morning and take a good look at your unaccomplished life? And felt the heat? You know the feeling? Right. You may be in New York City working as an engineer for a multinational, but you are a born singer, right? You’re a doctor on call in downtown LA, but you were born to be a lawyer, right? Or you’re a reporter for a big newspaper company in London, but you are a natural race driver – a business consultant for an oil firm in Dubai, but what you really are is a motivational speaker – a diplomat in China but a natural actor, or maybe in the Syrian military, when you really are a pastor. You just might be the saddest teacher somewhere in Kenya, but you know that you do what you do because you have to, not because you want to. There’s a big difference.
