Buhari, Oby Ezekwesili, Kanye West, Obama and others make TIME 100 Most Influenctial People

buhariNigeria ‘s president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari has made Time 2015 most influential list.Under Influential leaders, they wrote..
Muhammadu Buhari made history in March by becoming the first candidate to oust a sitting Nigerian President through the ballot box. Now he has to live up to voters’ expectations. From battling the Boko Haram insurgency to tackling endemic corruption, Buhari has many challenges ahead. The greatest may be overcoming his past as a military ruler who seized power in 1983. Already the born-again democrat is demonstrating the inclusivity necessary to lead a nation riven by ethnic and religious tensions. �We must begin to heal the wounds and work toward a better future,” he said in his April 1 victory speech. �We do this first by extending a hand of friendship and conciliation across the political divide.” It’s a promising start for a President-to-be who wants to leave a legacy to match the historic conditions of his election.
Other Nigerians on the list are,Oby Ezekwelisi,Chimamanda Adichie and Boko Haram’s Shekau.
Kanye West and wife Kim not only make Time most influential list,Kanye is also on the cover..Both listed under ‘titans list,they are undoubtedly the world’s most powerful couple at the moment..What Kanye wants, HE GETS!
Kanye West would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list. The dude doesn’t believe in false modesty, and he shouldn’t. Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity�he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut�got him to where he is today. And he fought for his place in the cultural pantheon with a purpose. In his debut album, over a decade ago, Kanye issued what amounted to a social critique and a call to arms (with a beat): �We rappers is role models: we rap, we don’t think.” But Kanye does think. Constantly. About everything. And he wants everybody else to do the same: to engage, question, push boundaries. Now that he’s a pop-culture juggernaut, he has the platform to achieve just that. He’s not afraid of being judged or ridiculed in the process. Kanye’s been playing the long game all along, and we’re only just beginning to see why.””

On Kim,they wrote

Kim Kardashian is a media phenomenon. She has 29 million followers on Instagram and 31 million followers on Twitter, and her E! show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is considered appointment TV by a large and diverse audience.

Why? Why? Why? we might ask ourselves. Here are some very good reasons.

Beautiful in an exotic, totally exaggerated way, Kim exudes energy, sexuality, drama, determination, impetuousness and happiness. But she and her famous, entrepreneurial siblings�shepherded by a savvy, tireless matriarch�have also expanded the very definition of family.

The Kardashians are a totally modern construct. They are a blended family, of Armenian descent, with biracial pairings (Kim is married to Kanye West) and a reportedly transgender parent. They work hard, and they stick together through thick and thin.

Despite the flamboyance, the self-aggrandizement and the self-promotion (Kim set out to break the Internet by baring her bum in an extraordinary photograph), Kim comes across as an enviable big sister in a clan where everyone seems to love one another. Are they indeed today’s Brady Bunch?

Where does Kim go from here? There seem to be very few barriers to further explosive success.
