MEET DESEWA MARTINS THE ‘DEESPEAKABLE’

MEET DESEWA MARTINS, THE 'DEESPEAKABLE'
My name is Martha Ifeanyichukwu Adesewa Martins. I am popularly known on Instagram as @deespeakable and @desewa_martins.
I am a writer, podcaster, and blogger driven by a passion to tell the stories of the everyday human life.
I was straightforward and explanatory with The Lens Media on TIME OUT WITH TLM:

WHAT WAS THE NEED TO CREATE A NEW PAGE FOR BLOGGING SINCE YOU HAD YOUR PERSONAL PAGE ALREADY?

Hmm, I would say, growth. Deespeakble, though being one of the best things I have created is a brand that needs its own space to grow. At some point, I had to weigh the plans I have for the blog and the fact that I was using the same platform for my own personal page. Then I decided, nope! It is time to give the blog its own platform and all the space it needs to grow.

WHO IS DESEWA MARTIN’S BEHIND INSTAGRAM?

Desewa Martins is a passionate storyteller who strives to live a life of fulfillment and serve as inspiration to others.

Though she is very shy, she loves to meet new people and learn about their lives. She is not much of an adventurous person lol, but she is working on that!

YOU WERE BORN IN LAGOS?

No, I was born and raised in Abuja!   Lagos is too razz

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE RECIPE FOR LOVE?

 Lol, that’s hard to place, but personally, I would say trust, commitment, effort, support, communication, fun and looks.

Oh, let me not leave the fact that you have not just got to know God, you got to love Him. I feel like in Him; the recipes are embedded.

YOU SEEM TO SPEAK ABOUT SO MANY THINGS ON YOUR PAGE. WHAT’S YOUR VIEW ON TOXICITY?

Yeah, I do, that’s why it’s Deespeakable lol! Yea toxicity; I think it’s a trait we ignore, but it is a great determiner of certain aspects in our lives. I also know that every human has the tendency to exhibit toxic traits depending on the situation and circumstances they find themselves.

It’s annoying that humans quickly point out toxic traits in others, but deny the fact that they themselves exhibit such traits from time to time.

Last, though we all have the tendency to exhibit toxic traits, one way to overcome it is to first admit that you are exhibiting such traits. It’s hard, we never want to believe that we are capable of certain, but it happens. Admitting it is one step towards getting over it.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WRITING?

Mostly eating lol, working; I have a 9-6 job, singing and then doing everything that every normal person does lol like; movies, spending time with friends and family, etc.

CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA?

Chocolate anytime!

…everything that happened to you at the point built you for something greater. Don’t worry about what you could have done differently.

WHO ARE YOUR ROLE MODEL AND MENTOR?

Honestly, I don’t think I have a specific person who I’d say is my role model. For creativity, there are few people I draw inspiration from. For navigating through life, itself, I’d say my mother.

COOL. HAVE YOU AUTHORED ANY BOOK?

No, I haven’t had the honor to. Even though I have manuscripts hidden in my shelf lol. Soon, though, it’s a work in progress.

GREAT. ARE YOU A STUDENT?

No, I am a graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics.

MARTHA DESCRIBE NIGERIA IN THREE WORDS.

Ah I’d say; sad, pathetic, and lost.

IF YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRAVEL THE WORLD, WHO WOULD YOU GO WITH?

My Mom, she definitely deserves that and more.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR DAD?

My dad died about 8 years ago.

WHAT’S YOUR STYLE? EXTRAVAGANT OR SIMPLE?

Simple, maybe it’s because I haven’t blown yet lol. When I do eventually by God’s grace, I know I would still love simple things, it’s just kind of who I am.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO YOUR TEN-YEAR-OLD SELF?

Hm… I would say everything that happened to you at the point built you for something greater. Don’t worry about what you could have done differently.
