My Bride Price

I was listening to a Radio program few weeks back and the discussion was about payment of bride price . The argument was since ‘what a man can do, a woman can do better’, and the global gender equality awareness, should a man still pay bride price to marry a wife? And I was like what! You mean a guy should just go and carry someone’s daughter for free? Like “I see am, I like am, I carry go” . No way! Aahh! Oti oo.  Continue reading

You must have read the story of a street bread seller turned model. What makes it funny is that she wasn’t selling UTC bread in one supermarket but ordinary ‘Agege bread’ on the street and she care-freely, strategically, and divinely, hawked her way into fame.  I like this type of miracle. In case you do not know, ‘Agege bread’ is a locally made type of bread and I think the cheapest bread in Lagos. She was innocently hawking this bread on the streets of Lagos when her miracle came. Some will say it is luck but I choose to say it’s a miracle. Continue reading

We Thrive

While having a deep thought on the present government of my very own Naija, one cannot but wonder. What happened to the campaign promises and all the noise about change. I said it then o, that we were just having a change of party because we have been recycling rulers. You and I know that putting on a new cloth does not change anybody. I just hope I am proven wrong oo.

My Valentine’s Day

I think that everyday should be a valentine’s day. A day to express your love to your spouse, lover, family, neigbours and all. Perhaps the day was set aside not just to remember the man Valentine but to remind us to always show love and care to others. Unfortunately, a lot of people limit this show of love to their lovers. And some would even have sex with a stranger in the name of celebrating valentine. Continue reading

Never say Never

I was in the Church on a Sunday few years back and my then Pastor announced the topic of his message – “Never Say Never”. When he was done, I felt like he was talking to me directly. I used to be like, me, never. Then I realized that human beings can change. Some of the things I said ‘never’ to, I had already adjusted to. Me too have changed even though am not ‘APC’, lol.

HOLD TIGHT

Today I feel like encouraging somebody and myself too because … hmmm,  I need am too.  So much is happening around us by the day. Too many challenges at all sides. What do we do people? Encourage yourself and move on. Do not give up.  I repeat, do not give up to pressures no matter what. I know and I truly understand the situation. Salaries have not been paid, business is dull, your spouse is frustrating you, your children are not cooperating, you have no job,  you have no partner, rent problems, don’t know where the next meal will come from, dollar rate is affecting your business, economy and all, the list is endless.

Greed!

Ok, my good people, this is my first post after the welcome and for a start, let’s talk about greed.

I was just thinking about recent happenings and the word greed keeps popping up. I think that most of the problems around us today have something to do with greed. It can be anywhere, in the family, even in our beloved Naija for instance, the ‘national cake’ which should serve every individual citizen of this great nation is in the hands of a few. Greed!
