I am so ashamed of myself as I type this 😂.Like WTH.. Y'all know how passionate I am about social media? Seen my Instagram Bio?? So it's a little understandable but of recent I have had to cut down the amount of time I spend on YouTube and Instagram which are the real suckers of data.But recently I used 6Gb in one week, like it all went away in 7days.. Shocker!!!!
I'm trying so hard not to sound judgmental but I have had this topic in mind ever since I attended a friend's birthday party some years back.I think 6 years or thereabout, I had just finished my W.A.E.C exams,by the way W.A.E.C means West Africa examination council (Basically an entrance exam) for my white folks who might not understand.
Back to the gist....
The International Day of the Girl was set up by the United Nations in 2011 and focuses on the girl as a child to celebrate the potential of girls across the world in the face of threats, discrimination, and the issues of their well-being.
I know this topic has been a source of controversy for a very long time but I still think people dont know what they are fighting for. What is Feminism: A social theory or political movement arguing that legal and social restrictions on females must be removed in order to bring about equality of both sexes in all aspects of public and private life..
I was just reading some stuffs online and I stumbled on this interesting and wierd article on "How to keep a man in lagos".Yes! Lagos,the HQ of Yoruba demonds..

One of the most powerful habits that I’ve picked up in the past 10+ years is to think in a more optimistic and constructive way.
It makes life feel lighter and not so burdensome. It opens up new paths towards where you want to go and it helps you to more easily overcome setbacks (and often get something good out of them).
You’ll feel less worried and sorry for yourself and more motivated to keep taking action.
Update! Update!! Update!!!! Lol..what the hell am I screaming for?? I know,know..Chill y'all..
I have been MIA for a few days and that is because I have been very very.. extremely busy..I say this all the time but I really mean it this time..
I can explain
When i say i have the worst throwback photos ever just believe me, most times i go through my old photos either on my social media handes or the hardcopy i always make sure i use the Ctrl (Shift + delete button) Literally!!! I am so embarrassed like "What was i thinking' ,'Was i normal'?? But again back then that was the hottest fashion..lol.Well i still have like 3 old photos which i still like a little, well i don't like them but i want to keep them...
So i stumbled on this article on BN and i really loved so i decided to share..Hope you have a nice read.
Over the last few months a lot of media attention has been placed on the growing Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) movement.
Led by the now infamous Nnamdi Kanu, the group is
demanding for the right to self determination according to UN Charter
and African Union Charter on Human and People’s Rights, which clearly
“Indigenous People have the right to Self-determination. By
virtue of that right, they freely determine their political status and
freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development”
Many people have asked me many questions on this topic, hence why I want to answer these questions in this article.
The comedian's second wife accused his first of ‘playing the victim’ over the breakdown of their marriage. But now a foiled sextortion attempt has changed that narrative.
There is, unsurprisingly perhaps, one person not entirely displeased or shocked by the sordid scandal surrounding the Kevin Hart sextortion attempt.
Hart’s first wife, Torrei Hart, 39, is reported by Hollywood Life to have remarked that “Karma is a bitch” after Hart, 38, was forced to make a groveling video admission and apology on Instagram to his wife, his kids, and fans after becoming the victim of a sextortion attempt.
Yes, its my best friend's brithday, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s birthday and the world is celebrating the icon who has, through her works, shaped the way we read and tell stories.
the renowned writer celebrates 40 years of flawlessness. She has for
many of these years been changing the world with her written works and
speeches. Her contributions to literature and pop culture are
immense, and that’s why in honour of the milestone..Here are my fav quotes from her...
So the first time i heard this song was during a service at Harvesters christian center (HICC) Gbagada, Lagos..Right there and then i did a shazam search and i downloaded it immediately..Since then this song has been on repeat..
I don't think i can get over it,same thing with Nathaniel bassey's 'Onise Iyanu'...These are songs with deep rooted lyrics...Speaking of deep rooted lyrics, who has listened to Tasha cobbs "I'm getting ready' ft Nicki minaj..*Whispers* yes that Anaconda mistress.Lol.
I'm not about to get into the discussions on whether the collaboration was right or wrong..
I still like the song still..
Meanwhile enjoy "My wealth is the cross" by Crowns...
P.s Why are my recent headlines all about wealth??? Hehehe
A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said, "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat." "Is your family home?" they asked. "No", she replied. "Not right now." "Then we cannot come in", they replied.
In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. "Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" The woman went out and invited the men in. "We do not go into a House together," they replied. "Why is that?" she asked. One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."
Nigerian songstress, Simi released her debut album last week and well there wasn't a lot of buzz about it..I don't even know why.lol But i have listened to all of them and i have one particular song on repeat which i will tell y'all later..Meanwhile the album is amazing..
This is how Itunes described the album ; As ‘a soulful punch of Afropop, shot through with sweetfulness’. After
listening to the alternative body of work, one would have to agree with
this concise but accurate description..
Everyone who knows me know i am the biggest fan of Kunle Afolayan's movies E.g 1st October, so when i heard the Tribunal was already showing i just had to go see it...It didn't disappoint..
Let me drop the trailer here for those that haven't seen it...
1. The preacher: When you’ve had a long day and you’re just looking forward to the
warmth of your bed, these people decide that you must have no rest on
the journey home. If you’re lucky, they will be screaming on the top of
their voices but when the gods have decreed you unlucky, they will have a
megaphone with them.
They will threaten hell, fire and brimstone if you don’t accept Jesus
and start attending a good church- usually theirs. If they really mean
business, they will collect offering right there in the bus. These
people don’t care how tired you are; they don’t care if you’re receiving
a phone call, they just keep shouting on top of their voices.
This is very sad..I was so teary this morning while i was home ...Heartbroken is the right word...
I have a lot of reviews and stories i had written down,but haven't heard the strength to edit images etc But hopefully before thursday i should post one or two..
I can't believe today is already monday and normal activities resumes tomorrow, Like the holiday is already over now...now....Anyways it was fun while it lasted
How did your weekend go?? Who got sallah meat?? I didnt get any and i feel like a failure,this has never happened to me before..Recession maybe??? 😂
It’s easy to get discouraged when you can’t find investors, your business plan falls apart or you feel like things just simply aren’t working out for you. There will be many times when you believe you can’t go any farther and you all you want to do is just give up. If you want to become a successful entrepreneur, you must be willing to stick with it even when times get tough.
If you follow me on my social media handles, you will know how much i love her..
So sosoliso plane crash survivor, Kechi Okwuchi, who is one of the contestants in America's Got Talent 2017 competition, gave a moving performance at the live shows last night. Kechi delivered a beautiful rendition of Katy Perry's song "By the Grace of God"...Watch above...
P.s I hope she gets through to the live show, and i doubt Nigerians are allowed to vote.
I didn't realize it was monday already..Lol Just looked like Friday
when i was jubilating about the weekends and it is all gone in a twinkle
of an eye..Wonderful!!
How did your weekend go?? any new event??
Mine was so boring, infact i had a couple of meetings last weekend
with some clients but i was too lazy to go..Probably because they were
on the Island..
In an unrelated context; You people that do "Long distance relationship' how do you cope?? E.G Island to Mainland.
Who watched 'The voice Nigeria'? I love Ifeoma's
performance last night..
I take Uber on a regular basis due to some stuffs, and really appreciate the service. While there are some horrible drivers in the system,
for the most part I’ve found Uber drivers to be exceptional, and so
much better than what was available in the taxi industry before.
I’ve read all kinds of stuff on the internet about “pet peeves” that
drivers have about passengers, most of which seem warranted. As a
passenger I have one slightly unusual annoyance that I have to get off
my chest...Yes.. This happened some days ago.

“Don’t be afraid. Step out of your comfort zones and soar”- Michelle Obama
“I looked up to my parents growing up. Even though they didn’t go to
college themselves, they worked hard to be able to send us. My dad was a
pump operator at the city water plant, and he didn’t earn much money.
But he was determined to pay whatever tiny part he owed for my tuition
on time every month.
So even though he had multiple sclerosis and often struggled just to
get dressed in the morning, he hardly ever missed a day of work. His
determination and love are an inspiration to me every day. So I was an
incredibly devoted student, and I would often wake up at 4 or 5 in the
morning to study. But even so, there were still people who thought that a
girl like me with a background like mine wasn’t really “college
In as much as i hate to admit this, Weekends are my Fav days ..
Time to unwind and find peace. The weekends are my escape
from the mundane reality that is called Monday through Friday..Trust me.. Below are some of my reasons..😂. (picture illustrated)
'MIND YOUR BUSINESS ' is unarguably the most used phrase in Nigeria, every scenerio you find yourself in Lagos (particularly) this phrase must always come up. it looks like a cliche but it isn't.
It was 5.pm on a sunny thursday evening, the normal rush hour,the hour when you have to wait for those yellow fever/ crooked looking danfo.lol. I had stood for 20 minutes and nothing that looks like a danfo was approaching, did i say the crowd was getting massive already? it wasn't getting funny because i know this was going to be the battle of the strongest.
So here is what happened, this young lad received a credit alert of 7.3million naira from a company which he knew nothing about, he contacted Diamond bank 24hrs later after no one contacted him to refund the money..
This week #WCW is Nollywood's fav girl,Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama. She
is a model and an actress. She came into prominence on 2013
NdaniTV’s hit web series, Gidi Up. She is also known for her roles in
Dreamwalker, 93 Days, The Wedding Party and The Arbitration.
The world has no shortage of diverse cultures, individuals and indeed, benchmarks for success.
Everyone seems to be constantly chasing one goal or the other
regardless of what part of the world they live in yet one of the biggest
things that travelling across the world always highlights is how
similar we all are.
We’re all different but fundamentally the same and this fundamental
similarity is very obvious when it comes to the issue of success.
No matter what your goals are or where you are in the world, these
truths about being successful are sometimes so so easily forgotten (in
which case, it’s always nice to be reminded) or never even thought of
but should be at the forefront of your mind
This article is for those people in the " Abroad' or bascially anyone living in Lagos..
Lagos and traffic cannot be separated especially as the state marches towards becoming a mega city. Ironically, each time the traffic recedes, you will discover the cause of the gridlock to be as strange as a commercial driver picking passengers on the road or two people parked in the middle of the road shouting at the top of their voices for no major reason.
This is the story of Lagos’ traffic…However, while others groan, you can actually flip the coin and enjoy this situation! In an unrelated context ' When they throw lemons at you, you making a freaking lemonade.' I just have 3 ways now, if you have some other ones just leave a comment..
Lol.. This photo has been trending on IG throughout the week, closely looking at the photo you would see a headless body standing apart from the head..It sparked a lot of comments but what do you guys think? It looks photoshopped to me.
How does the weekend come and go so quickly? It feels like only seconds
ago I was rushing from work on friday to
now preparing for work and the usual Monday morning grind. I am someone
who thinks (*daydreams) about the weekend constantly throughout
the week. I always seem to
think to myself that things will be different ‘on the weekend.’
First of, You guys know how much i love Omotola Jalade Ekeinde?? 😅 right..So I was really excited to watch this and dissect for y'all..

They say being tall is great. But things are never as great as they
seem. You might seem to be the luckiest one to your vertically
challenged friends, and most of them are pretty enamored by your height
to notice the struggles
you I face almost every day. Life is definitely not easy for us, and i
totally get that! so today let’s discuss some tall guy problems!..Shall we?? Hehehe
The McVitie’s Digestive brand has enjoyed a lot of consumer love and
support for over 12 decades across the globe, including in Nigeria.

In the mood of the celebration, Pladis launched a
massive promotional campaign to celebrate the 125th year anniversary of
its famously known and loved The Original McVitie’s Digestive biscuits.
I was watching something on YouTube and came across some old songs. I
still had the lyrics stuck in my head so I got to doing a little
research. What were your favorite albums before 2010? I’m technically
working with 2006-2010 here, so we remain on the same page. When I think
of more, maybe I’lldo another post..Meanwhile enjoy these;
How many negative thoughts have you had about yourself today?
Five? Ten? More?
Maybe your day looks something like this:
wake up and grumble at the readout on the bathroom scale, blaming your
inability to maintain any semblance of self-control when it comes to
eating out. At work a friend compliments you on your weightloss/big
sale/promotion, but instead of saying "Thank You", you shift the credit
to "Black really is slimming"/"Ah, that guy was gonna bite
anyway"/"Right place, right time". After work, you hit the gym, but
instead of thinking about how much progress you've made, you watch
everyone else and think how much stronger/slimmer/more flexible they
are. You fall asleep thinking about what mistakes you made and what
might go wrong tomorrow.
Positive thoughts generates positive feelings and attracts Positive life Experiences.Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.Positive Thinking is the tendency to expect the best.
This Right here is the funniest tweet i have ever seen on the 'Streets of Nigerian twitter'..WTH...
P.S. Reno Omokri was the special assistant to Ex president Goodluck Jonathan, and is known for his "Infamous' nuggets....
Cheers to the weekend and MIND YA BUSINESS! LOL
2 years ago, when I first started my blog, I wrote a blog post about the ‘Next 4 Countries I wanna Visit‘. At
the time I gave myself a 3 year period to visit them, not knowing what
the future holds.I visited Portharcourt and Ikeja which are both abroad.Lol Yes,I know...
Here i am again writing about the 20 countries i would love to visit, every day and every
month, I discover a new place and have a craving to visit there. But
these countries hold a strong place in my heart and i strongly believe 1 out of the countries i mentioned would be blessed by my legs before 2018 runs out..
I know today is thursday so it isn't supposed to be #WCW, bear with me(My love for this woman though)..Lol..I was supposed to put this up yesterday but i forgot..So here is a brief info;
NAME: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie OCCUPATION: Novelist, nonfiction #writer BIRTH: 15 September 1977 in Enugu, Nigeria
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian novelist, nonfiction writer and short story writer. A MacArthur Genius Grant recipient, Adichie has been called “the most prominent” of a “procession of critically acclaimed young anglophone authors [that] is succeeding in attracting a new generation of readers to African literature”.
This right here is the most overused phrase in Nigeria..' I'm Busy" ..Busy ko, Begging nii .lol
Seriously, Nigerians need to start respecting themselves with this “I’m Busy” phrase. Which Busy? Most of you are on your bed going through
Instagram, in your office playing candy crush or somewhere lounging
with friends or even in your house watching MTV base..I'm sorry, that also counts as being busy.
So this is really wierd but i have been disturbing a friend for a link to a particular post he read online, I was on my own Jeje when he chatted, telling me about the post he read and how he wants me to read it because it will help me career wise.
" Oya Oga send the link ,let me check it nah", I told him after his long sermon
I'm just going to post how i read it online ;
A transgender man, Trystan Reese has given birth to a baby boy in the United States of America.
Reese, from Portland, Oregon, was born female but started taking hormones about 10 years ago.
He stopped when he got pregnant and has now given birth to a son, Leo.
Reese suffered a miscarriage the last time he got pregnant and believed he had missed his chance to have children of his own.
Leo becomes the first biological child for Reese and his husband, Biff Chaplow, who already have two adopted children.
