Sigmund Freud saw the human psyche structured into 3 parts.
All of which developed at different stages of our lives.

  •  Id
  •  Ego
  •  SuperEgo

Id is the primitive and instinctual part of the mind. No filter. A great sense of freedom. I do what I want with no care in the world. I don’t care about how I look nor how you see me. Meaning, I just do what I like ‘cuz I can. Id seeks pleasure and avoids pain. CHILDLIKE FREEDOM.


Ego is the part of Id modified by the direct influence of the external world. It’s the part of me that comes in contact with reality and a subtle reminder that freedom does not truly exist. My actions affect others and I have to be conscious. I have to consider social realities, norms, etiquettes and rules in one way or the order when deciding to behave. There is no concept of right and wrong. It’s good if it achieves its aim without hurting Id or others. PARTIAL FREEDOM.


SuperEgo consists of 2 systems: Conscience and ideal self. A conscience that punishes the ego with a sense of guilt. It gives Ids demands. The ideal self is an imaginary picture of how I ought to be, aspirations, how to treat people, how to behave as a member of society, a fly stuck in a transparent tumbler, turned upside down. It rewards me, when I behave and punishes me, when I don’t. It sets high standards i can never reach. I want to be because society demands that I be. A sense of freedom, yet a prison in itself. TRAPPED.

It is safe to say, we are all trapped by SuperEgo. Would it be so bad to exist in the Id phase? Freedom, no filter? Or is this trapped life better?

Well, I love the color RED but it is not my best color. I love the “oldies”. I hardly let go of old songs and musicians… I am still a die hard fan of Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Etta James, Micheal Jackson, Micheal Bolton, Patti La Belle etc… you name them… I love oldies!!! Hey I listen to new songs too and break my bones to the Nigerian songs and all but the soul oldies have my heart.

Master Of The Arts (MOTA)

On a day like this (June 9th) a boy named Kazeem was born. No one knew his destiny but as he grew he discovered it and was determined to help people with it.

Famous graphic designer, Master Of The Arts, MOTA for short, has done a couple of graphic designs for many of our well known artist like Ruggedman, Zinny and many others and has also worked with producers like TY Mix and many others. He has also designed for big brands like MTN, Bank PHB, Etisalat and many others. I won’t blow his trumpet too much. I’d just let his works speak for him, visit  and be inspired by his quotes that he spices up with pictures and graphics.

I won’t let out all the juicy details. I’d leave you to take in this little info for now.

Today is his birthday and I’m using this medium on behalf of all his friends, Me, Trisha, Spotlyt,Babeeboi, Bilal etc. to wish him a happy birthday, long life and prosperity and success in his handwork. We love you and we pray for you to do more exploits and keep shocking and inspiring us. To join the rest of us in wishing him a happy birthday mention him on twitter : @kayzee_Mota or drop wishes here.





My Artist in The Mirror

Pen, Paper, Me
The man that stood before me did nothing
But the Man in the mirror
Held his pen to his paper and drew what he saw
His pen was firmly in his hand
His eyes were fixed on me
Professionally sketching something beautiful
A smile escaped his lips as he drew
He drew lines, angles and curves with precision
Highlighting and emphasizing my beauty
Everything had happened so quickly
We had just met, it was his first time with me
But he drew like he had known me for years
Like he understood every part of me
We connected
We were in our own world
Here he stands as one man in reality
Friendly, outgoing, simple and classy
And as a different person in that mirror
Just one evident quality, An Artist.
I stare at that mirror and I’m lost in your eyes
I want to reach out and touch you
But I have to be still for you to draw
We are separated by a glass
But still, You remain the best thing this month
Whatever you do, Don’t stop drawing
Don’t leave.
My wonderful, unique and awesome Artist in the mirror.
