[1] Ifeanyi Onyekaba was a boxer who had lived in America for only ten years when the YouTube channel Ri4CTV discovered him shadowboxing one day. At the time, he hopped around, punching fists in the air. His shadowboxing dance (pictured) was a few steps away from the Seekonk and Providence rivers confluence. Standing in solemn witness were Nickantony Quach behind the camera and half a dozen trees.

[2] To Nick (pictured), Ifeanyi is a Hercules in the making of Thumoslang. Without him, Nick could not have produced Thumoslang101, a quantum leap for the vocabulary, less than a year after its discovery. Ifeanyi deserves a place named after him. Nick often refers to it as Ifeanyi Landing.

[3] The two spent many hours together the same day they first met. Unbeknownst to Nick, his way with words based on Thumoslang gave Ifeanyi a great impression. Four weeks later, on August 21, 2019, when Ifeanyi was at a fork in the road, he came to Nick’s home for life advice. Their second meeting unexpectedly lasted three hours, all on camera. It brought about the YouTube miniseries Thumoslang101 on Ri4CTV, capable of demonstrating the immense power possessed by the nomenclature for social life: Thumoslang!

[4] “What surprised me the most was how quickly [the 25-year-old father Ifeanyi Onyekaba, who was a salesman,] was able to go from being very, um, confused. You sharpened the blade of his mind,” Jairson Ascencao, a friend of Ri4CTV, said about the series Thumoslang101. “I was surprised by how quickly you [could] sharpen the blade of his mind. And what I mean by that is he was able to hone in very quickly and realize some essential things about himself in three hours. I spent so much time in school and have never seen someone grow so much [and] that quickly. That surprised me the most: how much I was able to see him grow.” Jairson elaborates further in the video [Quickly Sharpen the Blade of Your Mind | Thumoslang102 | S1E21](v=Af4srXvVHfk).
