Don’t miss this.

There is a way dreams and visions can be fulfilled.

 

I have been on this book with the title years ago but I was unable to get it done and bring it to conclusion.

 

I shelved it and put it aside till now when the passion and what is needed to get it done is available.

 

This how you and I should handle some issues in our lives.

 

There are issues in life that the best way to handle it and get solutions to them is to be patient by putting them aside for a while before getting it done.

 

Therefore, that issue bothering you right now might not warrant you rushing,it might just need you been cautious about been calm leaving it to the natural forces of time and season to get it done.

 

Without any iota of doubt,time and seasons are natural forces that determines our fates while on earthly pedestal.Art Event Flyer (1)

KINGDOM PROMOTION FOR THE LESS PRIVILEGED AND THE DOWNTRODDEN—KPLPD

 

The need to contribute in building a balanced society is necessary and essential.

 

No one in the right state of mind will overlook or underestimate the necessity to build a balanced society.

 

One of the ways to make this a reality is by being intentional in contributing our quota in building a society that will accommodate others that are seen and believe to be stranger in this world due to their inability to meet up with the demand of the society.

 

“A balanced society must be a society that

have provision for everyone”.

 

Although,this seems to be impossible and a hard nut to crack.

 

In other to make this possible,men and women of goodwill and good conscience need to arise to the occasion and safe the existence of humanity from being pummeled by the aftermath effect of having larger percentage of the needy in the society.

 

In the view of the above,Kingdom Promotion for the less privilege and the downtroddenis taking the bull by the horn to provide a platform whereby the needy in the society will be taken care of.

THEY ARE SIX.

She has been saying it long time ago that she is only girl in her class.

I was present today in her school to mark her birthday and I saw it life and direct that she is the only girl in a class of six with a beautiful female teacher.

On spite of this,I realized that she is free and fulfilled been in a small circle like that.

And so,we started taking pictures to mark her birthday.

 

 

 

Then,I was relieved after all has been done.

At least,there will be respite about birthday till when we are approaching the next one.

Congratulations dear.

On behalf of my family we appreciate everyone who has been part of our story till this moment.

Thank you all.

A MEMORABLE JANUARY.

 

I was still ruminating on the success of yesterday when I saw a recognition that I wasn’t expecting in the nearest future.

My journey into writing started as a hobby and as a means of having my voice and views known across board.

However, something like this that started as an innocent passion met waves of fury and envy from those who lack the opportunity of knowing what their passion and purpose are all about.

Since,them I have never relented in pushing the best of my efforts out on different platform.

Towards the end of last year,by Providence and coincidence,I ran into a platform known as “autranum” and within a space of few days I have my published e-books in PDF format on this platform.

Now,you can trace three different e-books to me as the publisher with other manuscript warming up to be thrown out for readers consumption soon.

Never know that I would be picked out as the “writer of the month”yesterday.The first recognition ever since I started on this journey.

Glory be to God and thanks to everyone who deemed it fitting for me to be recognized.

This month is ending with this and it is a fact that I am breaking limits this year.

Thanks to “autranum”

I am grateful.

CELEBRATING A WONDERFUL 7TH YEAR.

While the clock keeps tickling and time keeps rolling from one moment to another,while what started with littleness and a drop of affection and love turned gradually into what it is intended to be in terms of achievement and all round fulfillment,all we can do is to go all out to appreciate the success of our love and commitment in making the littleness of seven years ago becoming a source of hope, inspiration and aspirations to others.

 

 

img_20191208_172854457444658595275505.jpg

It started without any stress on the 19th of March 2012,there was no delay and argument about our intention.

We declared and agreed about what we want for our lives and on the 5th of August 2012 which is my beloved birthday,the two families met and we had our introduction.

By the 21st and 22nd of December 2012,Ikoyi Marriage Registry welcomed us and gave us a certificate to validate and legalized our coñseñt to become husband and wife.

 

 

fb_img_15757795826304395652701956713615.jpg

On the 8th of December 2012, we walked down the isle and tied the knuptial knot.

Not that we have all that is required to stand as husband and wife but we pushed ourselves having the intention of creating and building ourselves to become better gradually.

The results of our intention have been a product of our dedication and commitment to build a family according to the purpose and will of God which has made our union to stand without challenges.

AN ODE TO A GREAT TEACHER! A TRIBUTE TO A GREAT MOTHER!!

 

It was in 1988,

I was in Primary 4,

Being one of her best student in Class then.

She saw a gap of weakness in me,

She made up her mind to strengthen it,

She made up her mind to step into it.

She noticed that,

In spite my brilliance in her class,

My handwriting falls short of expectation.

As a good mother,

As a professional teacher,

She called my attention to it,

She arranged for how I will get better.

 

Sincerely and truthfully,

She took me back to the basic,

Even in Primary 4,

She started all over again,

Teaching and tutoring on,

The best way to write each of the alphabets.

Step by step,

I started getting it,

Letters by letters,

My handwriting begins to get shape.

Not only that,

It was later in life,

That I realized that she was the one,

That exposed me to the Montessori method of learning,

Most of the elementary poetry and nursery rhymes I knew by then,

She was the one who introduced it to her class.

 

I could remember that I was in Primary 4A then,

In CAC Primary School B in Okesa Ilesa.

 

No wonder,

She was blessed with children that are extremely brilliant,

I could remember the brilliance of Brother Gbenga Haastrup then,

He was a Professor in Ilesa Grammar School among his peers,

I believe Ilesha Grammar School 1993 Set members remember him then.

 

She was blessed with another genius too,

He is my classmate in Ilesha Grammar School,

Surveyor Biodun Haastrup is another great mind,

She produced from her loins.

 

The last time I saw her at a function in Ilesa,

It was during Haastrups’ family gathering on December 26th,

When I greeted her,

She could still remember me without any introduction,

She asked about my mum and my siblings.

I was pained when I heard about her demise,

All I could remember is her effort on me then,

She took me as one of her sons,

And she gave me a reason to shout encomium on her today,

While other teachers look away and did nothing in giving me what I want,

She stood in the gap and gave me a reason to celebrate her today.

 

Eventhough, she is gone,

She will be remembered forever,

REST IN PEACE MA.

 

NB:

Anytime you see my handwriting and you appreciate it,just remember that LATE Elder(Mrs) Olufunmilayo Adesola Haastrup gave me a platform.

May her soul rest in Peace.

Adieu for now.

I missed you Ma.

Thanks for being a mother to me in the journey of my life.

May heaven reward your good deeds.

 

She will be committed to mother earth on the 21st of September 2019 in Ilesa Osun STATE.

MUSING ON BARRY AT 40–My 40th birthday.

I could remember and recollect vividly how I have free and undisturbed access to latest music records in my developmental age courtesy of my parents business then in Ilesa.
In Ilesa then,there were few music record stores and my parents has one of the best then.

 

img_20190825_061347_3111101704772637226777.jpg
The business involved dubbing of music with the usage of turn-tables,loud-speakers and other dubbing engines to copy music from a record into what is called cassettes then.

It also involved the sales of records directly to would be customers.
If you resident in Ilesa in the 80s and 90s,you should remember Aletile records store at Ereja Square,Gloria records Store at Ereguru,Odion records Store at Ereguru,Owaround records store at Orinkinran.These are the popular record store in Ilesa then of which Gloria records store at Ereguru belongs to my dad then.

 

img_20190824_205606_8172923425497175733993.jpg
It was this business that made me to have free flowing access to music directly.
Many oldies, highlife,Fuji,Apala,Awurebe,Juju and foreign music by Bob Marley are some of the music I can remember.

 

img_20190825_061347_313791390542862552286.jpg
One of the music releases then that stuck to my mind when it was sent to me is the one by Barrister then which is about his 40th birthday.I could remember that King Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey made music about their 40th birthday which was a hit then.

 

img_20190823_0927078500207909359590359.jpg
I could remember then that I am always inquisitive and a little bothered about the speciality of 40th birthday and all I hope for in my mind is that one day I will be 40 years old.
It was a forlorn hope then that looked like eternity.

 

 

img-20190822-wa0002~23665807396278713037..jpg
I never knew then that one day it will be a reality and I will be celebrating and happy just the way Barrister, Ebenezer Obey and King Sunny Ade were high to heaven then.
Just in a space of time,I could see the reality of what I hoped for in the land of the living.
Many waters has passed underneath the bridge,many of my mates have gone yonder and many people have lost hope of a greater future.
By God’s mercy,I have been able to stand firmly on my feet,I have been able to fulfill part of the deal I have with divinity and nature.
God has been faithful into me in making today a reality.

It looks like yesterday that I was announced and introduced into this world but today God had been the one who kept me up to this moment.

img_20190825_061347_3233415683947445191189.jpg
It is a double Celebration in Fadeyi’s family as my dad,uncle,friend and pal also shared thesame day with me.I thank God for the life of Mr.SA Fadeyi FCA for how far God has taken him to be a blessing unto his generation.As old as he his,he is young at heart.

fb_img_1566706820369252887013255791430.jpg

 

 

 

All I can wish you is strength to remain alive and be a blessing unto your generation.

 

fb_img_15667443506198440016948414543739.jpg
I appreciate my family, my mum, my sisters and brothers, my niece’s, nephews, cousins and in-laws.
Special appreciation also goes to all my friends–real and virtual friends scattered across the length and breadth of the world.
Never to forget my daughter and my wife.

They make my world worthy and meaningful in all ramifications.

Kudos to my beloved, the secret of what I am becoming in life.

SHE HAS BEEN LOUD ABOUT TODAY.

For past days now,she has been loud about today telling everyone on her way that today is her mum’s birthday.

She has made it a point of duty singing birthday ryhms in the hearing of the whole house reminding her mum what her mum must buy for her birthday.

The consciousness and sensitivity of ‘little mama’ to a day like this got me thinking about how I spent my childhood days.I don’t think I spent it the way little ones of today has 🐝 spending it.

Anyway,the reason might be due to exposure and places of residents.While I grew up in Ilesa,she is spending her lifetime in Lagos coupled with the realities of human existence in this age.

In other not to digress from the subject matter,I have been held down not knowing what to present this morning but it is impossible for me not to pen few lines on my timeline celebrating my heartbeat in life.

 

 

img-20190102-wa00003249081246339936993.jpg

She has been golden in every facet of her life with calmness, gentleness and candour been her strength.

Virtues that I silently crave for and always put to rest in my personal life.

She has remained an epitome of beauty and a diadem of many colours.Her support to everyone around her is amazing to the point that I always ask her to be a little bit careful and conscious.

I doubt if I will ever be complete if I missed being her husband.Her contributions made me to have every reason to be focused and be a home boy .

What else can we say at this moment other than spending my time to celebrate an ebony and an Amazon that God gave to me at this moment of my life.

 

img_20181226_1443016795611559937103934.jpg

She is a year older today.

She is a year better today.

She is a year booming today.

She has been an exhibition of goodness every man should crave for.

She has been an answer to my prayer requests years ago.

I am grateful for keeping her to see the beauty of today.It has been God that has made it possible for you to be alive today.

Many waters has gone bye and you have been able to stay afloat becoming better in every area of life.

You have been successful in every area of life.You have a source of hope and help to people around you.

If I am chanced,I could have spend eternity celebrating you.

If I am chanced,I would spend the whole of my world telling the world the innate beauty in you.

You are a woman every woman should hold on to.

 

 

img_20181226_1438104802282305795417895.jpg

You are a mother that should be a source of inspiration to the entire woman world.

Today is your day,my beloved.

All I have to do is to wish you well and remind you how lovely you are.

Another 5th of August is around,let’s celebrate and pop champagne.

My beloved is a year older.

I love you forever.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BELOVED.

Do you know any alternative to sugar?

Sugar consumption has been linked to be the cause of multifarious lifestyle diseases that has cost many people to loose their health to the cold hands of sickness and death.

 

According to https://articles.mercola.com/sugar-side-effects.aspx,

Today, an average American consumes about 17.4 teaspoons of sugar per day, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.1 While this is down by about a fourth since 1999, when Americans’ sugar consumption was at its peak,2 It is still significantly higher than the 12 teaspoons that the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015-2020, has set.3

This is definitely alarming, considering the average Englishman in the 1700s consumed only 4 pounds of sugar per year4 — and that was mostly from healthful natural sources like fruits, quite unlike the processed foods you see in supermarket shelves today.

What’s even more disturbing is that people are consuming excessive sugar in the form of fructose or high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). This highly processed form of sugar is cheaper to produce, yet 20 percent sweeter than regular table sugar, which is why many food and beverage manufacturers decided to use it in their products.

HFCS is found in almost all types of processed foods and drinks today. Just take a look at this infographic to see just how much fructose is hiding in some of the most common foods you eat.

 

Sugar, in my opinion, is one of the most damaging substances that you can ingest — and what’s terrifying about it is that it’s very abundant in our everyday diet. This intense addiction to sugar is becoming rampant, not just among adults, but in children as well.

 

The bad news is that the human body is not made to consume excessive amounts of sugar, especially in the form of fructose. In fact, your body metabolizes fructose differently than sugar. As explained in the next section, it is actually a hepatotoxin and is metabolized directly into fat — factors that can cause a whole host of problems that can have far-reaching effects on your health.

 

Effects of Consuming Too Much Sugar

Dr. Robert Lustig, a professor of clinical pediatrics in the division of endocrinology in the University of California and a pioneer in decoding sugar metabolism, says that your body can safely metabolize at least 6 teaspoons of added sugar per day.

But since most Americans are consuming about three times that amount, a majority of the excess sugar becomes metabolized into body fat — leading to all the debilitating chronic metabolic diseases that many people are struggling with. Here are some of the effects that excessive sugar intake has on your health:
•It overloads and damages your liver — The effects of too much sugar or fructose can be likened to the effects of alcohol.5 All the fructose you eat gets shuttled to the only organ that has the transporter for it: your liver. This severely taxes and overloads the organ, leading to potential liver damage.
•It tricks your body into gaining weight and affects your insulin and leptin signaling — Fructose fools your metabolism by turning off your body’s appetite-control system. It fails to stimulate insulin, which in turn fails to suppress ghrelin, or “the hunger hormone,” which then fails to stimulate leptin or “the satiety hormone.”6 This causes you to eat more and develop insulin resistance.
•It causes metabolic dysfunction — Eating too much sugar causes a barrage of symptoms known as classic metabolic syndrome.7 These include weight gain, abdominal obesity, decreased HDL and increased LDL cholesterol levels, elevated blood sugar, elevated triglycerides and high blood pressure.
•It increases your uric acid levels — High uric acid levels8 are a risk factor for heart and kidney disease. In fact, the connection between fructose, metabolic syndrome and your uric acid is now so clear that your uric acid level can now be used as a marker for fructose toxicity.

Sugar Increases Your Risk of Disease

One of the most severe effects of eating too much sugar is its potential to damage your liver, leading to a condition known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).9

Yes, the same disease that you can get from excessive alcohol intake can also be caused by excessive sugar (fructose) intake. Lustig explains the three similarities between alcohol and fructose:10
•Your liver metabolizes alcohol the same way as sugar — Both serve as substrates for converting dietary carbohydrate into fat. This promotes insulin resistance, fatty liver and dyslipidemia (abnormal fat levels in your blood).
•Fructose undergoes the Maillard reaction with proteins — This causes superoxide free radicals to form, resulting in inflammation — a condition that can be also caused by acetaldehyde, a metabolite of ethanol.
•Fructose can directly and indirectly stimulate the brain’s “hedonic pathway” — This creates habituation and dependence, the same way that ethanol does.

Additionally, research from some of America’s most respected institutions now confirms that sugar is a primary dietary factor that drives obesity and chronic disease development.

One study found that fructose is readily used by cancer cells to increase their proliferation, promoting cell division and speeding their growth, which allow the cancer to spread faster.11

Alzheimer’s disease is another deadly illness that can arise from too much sugar consumption. A growing body of research found a powerful connection between a high-fructose diet and your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, through the same pathway that causes Type 2 diabetes. According to some experts, Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders may be caused by the constant burning of glucose for fuel by your brain.12

Other diseases that are linked to metabolic syndrome and may potentially arise because of too much sugar consumption include:
•Hypertension13
•Lipid problems14
•Heart disease
•Polycystic ovarian syndrome15.

 

One of the major and popular alternative to the consumption of sugar by human is the consumption of Pure and Natural Honey.

 

In conclusion, having HERITAGE NATURAL HONEY is the way out for your sugar craving.

Let me tell you something about her.

Who is the character,

I am about talking about?

Who is the person that caught my fancy right now?

Who is she that is forcing me to pen?

Who is she that is holding my line of thought right now?

 

She is a woman,

She is a mother,

She is a wife,

She is a grandmother.

 

fb_img_15543886686073672979510570103217.jpg

 

She is more than a script,

She is more than a story,

She is a rare gem,

She is a diadem,

She is a diamond,

She is an enigma,

She is an oracle.

She is a goddess,

She is everything good.

 

 

img_20181230_1058123623782829479491069.jpg

 

I became known to her as a son,

We became her children,

She gave us life,

She is like a rock of Gibraltar till now,

She is an edge of support to us,

She dared all insults, shame and reproaches when the going become tough and rough,

She became all we can think about in life.

She struggled successfully to give us hope.

 

While we are growing,

Her help became our world,

She denied herself comfort to make us comfortable.

She became naked for us to cover our nudity.

She taught us the pride of being hardworking,

She tutored us to make a name through our challenges.

 

Till now,

She is still all we knew,

Till now,

She is still our hope,

Till now,

She is still our help.

 

We can never have a better mother than her,

We can never have a better grandmother than her.

We can never hope for a better figure in any other woman.

 

While growing up,

She defied every obstacle to make her contribution in our life,

 

While growing up,

She was busy doing three different jobs to put food on the table.

 

She is a good description of ruggedness and endurance,

Her perseverance and endurance is beyond our understanding,

Her dedication to make her children better is heavenly,

Her hope of a better tomorrow for all her children and grandchildren is eternal.

What can I do to pay her back,

 

We have nothing to pay her back.

All we have is appreciation.

All we have is to celebrate her on a day like this.

All we have to do,

Is to tell the entire world her story.

 

All we can do is to make the entire humanity aware of her dedication

So that her benediction on her birthday will be heard all over the world.

She is 65 years today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MUM—MRS JNM FADEYI

She is my life.

May God bless you with more of today.

MLST ARTICLES:A DAY TO CELEBRATE MY BELOVED.KINDLY JOIN ME.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

This publication was used to celebrate  the only woman in my life on the 5th of August 2018  on Facebook social media platform as she marked her birthday.

 

Since then, I have planned to share my thought about the love of my life with all my readers, viewers and followers but it has been dragging since the concept of blogging is quite burdensome,cumbersome and time-sapping but I decided to break this jinx and celebrate the mother of my beautiful daughter at this moment.

 

Pardon me for  being late in celebrating her on my blog space  now.

 

Whether it is belated or not,my line of thought concerning her is all that matters.

 

The phases of life are anchored and reflected by the realities of moments and seasons which are properly announced by the memories every moment and season presented to us.

 

While we wallow and struggle to free ourselves from the grip of the unexpected that was the reality of some moments,our hopes and expectations are always raised to the high heaven whenever we remember the beauty and celebration that always accompany some moments.

 

With or without pomp and pageantry, there is a moment of our life that all that we are expected to do is being appreciative and grateful for the gift of life.

 

The day of our triumphant entry to this world is a moment that needs celebration just because we are engraced and chanced to make it through the battle of child birth.

 

Another moment of my life that I always look up to has come.

 

It is a day that I will always celebrate the blessing of God in my life.

 

She has been the simple,soft and strong personality that I always watch and ask myself why she is calm,mature and not in anyway emotional just the way other women are.

 

She has a special way of giving everyone around her hope and assurance that is incomparable and her sense of reasoning and judgment can never be waved aside.

 

A silent and noiseless achievers making her impacts in a way and manner expected by a homemaker and a professional.

 

We are blessed to have you as a wife,a lover and a mother.

 

God has kept you this far to be part of my story. Your impact in my life is forever appreciated. You have really being the unseen hand that is making life to become beautiful and meaningful.

 

She is the answer to my prayers for a good woman.

 

She is an amazon and an ebony.

 

She has been there when the going was rough and tough , and she is still hanging on to see to the my success and achievement.

 

The story of my life will be incomplete and unjustifiable without her.

 

She is my wall of peace and my hope in the course of my sojourn on earth.

 

I couldn’t have asked God for a better woman.

 

I looked at other women and I observed that she is one in a million.

 

 

Just as “little mama “woke up this morning wishing you “happy birthday”by singing, I woke up this morning to write this piece celebrating you.

 

I pray that you will live to witness more of today.You are just starting, the rest of your years will be meaningful and you will be a blessing to this generation. The hand of wickedness shall be far away from you.

 

Don’t ever forget that someone somewhere will keep loving you till the end of ages.

 

 

Having you around has been the reality of the completion God wants me to have.

 

She is an angel in human form.

 

She is just a full package of blessings God gave to me.

 

I really appreciate your humility, love,calmness and gentleness.

 

All this can only be gotten from a woman that is God sent.

 

Without you, I would have made a mistake that nobody can correct.

 

Celebrating you today is one of the fulfillment and heart desire I always look up to every year.

 

I appreciate God for making you to cross my path.

 

I appreciate God for opening my eyes to know that you are the one.

 

Many fight their husband, but you always give me your peace and a hope of a better day ahead.

 

Many insult their husband but you always respect yours.

 

Many treat their husbands as a piece of rag, but yours is a king to you.

 

Many harass their husband as a piece of shit but yours is a gold.

 

You are a diadem and a diamond to me.

 

When people around me tells me that you are beautiful,I always understand that truly I made the right choice in character, attitude, beauty and humanness.

 

You are a woman that the world will soon bow down for you.

 

Just keep the love burning and I promised to be the best husband.

 

Thanks for the Pizza and the bowl of Ice- Cream we had latter in the day.

 

 

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO:
OLARONKE OLUWAKEMI RACHEL FADEYI.

To my beloved :

I love you….

MLST ARTICLES:10 MEANS OF GETTING BACK ON YOUR FEET WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN.–(6 MINUTES READ).

This topic kept being loud in my mind for days now and I have been struggling putting it down as an article but just now I managed to pen down something about this topic.

 

I hope this will serve as a source of inspiration and motivation to those who are interested in reading my piece of mind at this period.

 

The entire world is gradually recovering from the buzz of victory and the ruse of defeat that accompanied the just concluded world cup organized by Federation of International Football Association that was hosted by Russia.

 

Ruminating on the Final Match that was played between Croatia and France.It was visible observed that the ball possession throughout the 90 minutes of the match had Croatia having the highest possession while France has the lowest.

 

France’s ball possession was recorded to be at 31 percent, while Croatia  had it at 69 percent but at the end of the day,France took the lead.While Croatia was busy playing their heart’s out, France was busy scoring till the glory of the day was carried by France.

 

What a deviation from what is expected on the day.It beats the wildest imagination of all the viewers and spectators.This was quite against the run of play.

 

At the end of the 90 minutes,the team that is playing good football ended up being defeated while the one that is not performing lost the game.

 

 

Anyway, such is life.

 

We should always expect the unexpected.

 

Life always has a way of making the expected winner to loose and the expected looser to win.

 

In a bid not to digress too long from the topic,one needs to understand that life is always accompanied with unexpected turbulence and unimaginable whirlwinds that makes the existence of anyone on earthly pedestal to be less worthy of living stripping off the beauty that is expected by us to radiated in the course of our existence on earth.

 

It seems to be quite impossible for life to be without challenges accompanied with ups and downs.A life that is expecting to be without challenges is a life that is not ready to be in existence.Any life that wants to exist meaningfully must be ready to have its the essence of its existence accompanied with multifarious challenges that is potent enough to make anybody to loose focus of what life is expected to be about.

 

There is always a time and a season on the surface of earth.

 

There are seasons when things are rosy and there are seasons when things are rough.These seasons are seasons that should be part of expectation of anyone who desire to have a grip that of what life is all about.

 

So, when the season of our existence shift from being rosy to being rough,when the chips are down, what can someone do?

 

WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN?

These are some of the remedies that must be applied when our existence on earth is being tossed up and down having the potential of sucking the inner strength expected to be available in the course of drowning challenges.

 

These are:

1.Maintain candor and calmness

2.Be at peace with yourself which signals maturity.

3.Look back at past mistakes and errors committed by you.

4.Make an overview of past occurrences and experiences.

5.Be truthful with yourself.

6.Learn from your mistakes.

7.Appraise the situation on ground.

8.Make necessary strategies based on the lesson you learnt.

9.Project into the future based on available resources at your disposal.

10.Launch and propel forward.

 

chips 1

 

With all these,the necessity to get back on your feet will be easily carried out with you sustaining minor fracture and injury which would make the scratch sustained in the course of the challenges to be minimal.

 

In conclusion, when the chips are down, the best means of getting back on your feet is to pick the pieces and move on.

 

You need the pieces.

AM I RIGHT?—(4 MINUTES READ)

I have been around for couples of decades now.I don’t think i am wrong submitting that i am yet to see a life spent on earth without accompany torrential vicissitudes.The life of every mortal has been destined and divined to operate within the pendulum of torrential ups and down.

 

No doubt about it,it is this scores of ups and downs that becomes the subject of our experience in life.A life well spent is a life that has been pummeled and pushed apart by waves of challenges at one point or the other but what makes such life adventurous and eventful is the series of challenges such life had been able to overcome in the process of time.

 

The victory obtainable from any form of challenges creates an inner strength that birth the genesis of self discovery in every mortal man.No human existing on the surface of the earth can boast of life that is devoid of myriads of challenges but the difference in every man is whether we emerge as a champion or not at the end of the cycles of challenges we pass through at one point or the other.

 

Our world is filled with great mind and great men that have been able to weather the storm of life with many scars as a testimony for their ordeal in the hand of waves of challenges that seems to tear  asunder.No great story can become interesting without having the foundation of its contents on topics that rallies around failures with it terminating with conclusion that has to do with victories that boil down to light shinning at the end of every dark tunnel.

 

There are many dark tunnel but the beauty of every dark tunnel is the shinning light that occupies the end of every dark tunnel.

 

In the course of my sojourn till this moment,I am yet to see a dark tunnel without shinning light beaming at the end.

 

To all my readers,there is always a shinning light at the end of every dark tunnel.

 

Behind every dark cloud,there is always a silver lining.

 

Never give up,even when the bowl is hot.—Tupac Amaru Shakur.

 

Am I right? Am I right?? Am I right???

ARE YOU A “GOOD ENOUGH”PARENT?

INTRODUCTION

The stages of development of a child starts from infancy and terminates at adulthood and each stage requires many forms of supports that are necessary to make each of the stages a successful endeavor expected to lead to the emergence of a complete and a responsible adult.

The various forms of support needed are categorized into different areas of developments viz:

1.Physical developments.

2.Emotional Developments.

3.Social Developments.

4.Financial Developments.

5.Intellectual Developments.

6.Spiritual Developments.

The perfect combination of all these should be confined in the nucleus of every child developmental curriculum.

WHAT IS PARENTING?

Parenting or child rearing is the process of promoting and supporting the physical,emotional,social,financial and intellectual developments of a child from infancy to adulthood.

Parenting entails caretakers and the most common caretaker among others in parenting is the biological parents of the child in question.

What makes child bearing successful is nothing but good child rearing methods,ideology and philosophy.

Other caretakers may include viz:

  • Grandparents.
  • Legal Guardians.
  • Aunts.
  • Uncles
  • Family Members.
  • Family Friends.
  • Neighbors
  • Government and Society
  • Non-Parent blood relatives.
  • Foster care givers through adoption of orphaned children.

In addition ,parenting refers to the aspects of raising a child from the biological relationship which requires parenting skills or styles and a parent with good parenting skills or style may be referred to as a GOOD PARENT.

THE CONCEPT OF “GOOD ENOUGH PARENTING”

parental-training-3

The description and the explanation of the concept of “good enough” parenting can be traced to the English Pediatrician and Psychoanalyst–DONALD WINNICOTT.He submitted and asserted that the concept of ‘good enough” parenting is a concept in which minimum prerequisites for healthy child development are met.

Winnicott wrote,'”The good-enough mother…starts off with an almost complete adaptation for her infants needs, and as time proceeds,she adapts less and less completely,gradually according to the infants growing ability to deal with her failure”.

From culture to culture,characteristics that make one a good or a “good enough’ parent varies.Research has shown that parental history both in terms of attachments of varying quality as well as parental psychopathology particularly in the make of adverse experiences, can strongly influence parental sensitivity and child outcome.

The outcome of development of a child from infancy to adulthood is an arduous task which is greatly dependent to a large extent on the resources pulled together by the parent or foster parent in the course of parenting.The essence of parenting that centers around responsibility with its outcome is a function of any of the four essential parenting skills or styles or the combination of the four that is maximized by parents towards the development of a child from infancy to adulthood.

In view of this,it is pertinent to delve into the four different essential parenting skills or styles that can be applied in the course of child rearing.

ESSENTIAL PARENTING SKILLS.

parental-training-2

Parenting Skills simply connotes the overall emotional climate in the home at a particular period of time.

According to Diana Baumrind,there are four essential styles that can simply be referred to as parenting skills viz:

  • Authoritative Parenting.
  • Authoritarian Parenting.
  • Permissive Parenting.
  • Uninvolved Parenting.

Parenting skills are significantly related to children’s subsequent mental,health and well-being.The four skills of parenting involve the combinations of acceptance and responsiveness on the one hand and demand and control on the other.

While,authoritative parenting is positively related to mental health satisfaction with life,authoritarian parenting is negatively related to these variables.

  1. AUTHORITATIVE PARENTING.

Authoritative Parenting maintains a balance by combining a medium level demands on the child and a medium level responsiveness from the parents.According to Baumrind, authoritative parenting is simply described as “the just right” parenting style.The characteristics exhibited in authoritative parenting are viz:

  • Positive reinforcement.
  • Infrequent use of punishments.
  • Awareness of child’s feelings and capabilities.
  • Parents support the development of a child autonomy within a reasonable limits.
  • In an authoritative parenting,there is a give-and -take atmosphere in parents to child communication.
  • Research shows that authoritative parenting style is more beneficiary than the too-hard authoritarian style or the too soft permissive style.An example of authoritative parenting would be parents talking to their child about their emotions.

2. AUTHORITARIAN PARENTING.

Authoritarian parenting styles symbolizes rigidity and strictness with high demands being placed on the child but parents are not responsive to the child.

In authoritarian parenting styles, obedience, adjustment,compliance and conformity to laid down rules and regulations from parents to child is enforced by punishment.

There is usually no explanation of punishment except that the child is in trouble for breaking a rule.

This parenting style is usually more strongly associated with corporal punishment such as spanking.

This is common among the working class families.

3.PERMISSIVE PARENTING.

Permissive parenting is also known as indulgent parenting which is very common among the middle-class families than in the working class families.

In permissive Parenting,parents exhibits some of these characteristics viz:

  • No explicit rules involved in this style.
  • Child’s freedom and autonomy are highly valued.
  • Parents rely on reasoning and explanations.
  • Parents are highly responsive to the child’s needs.
  • Parents guarantees their child freedom from external constraints.
  • Children are generally happy.
  • Low level of control are shown by children.
  • Low level of self -reliance are exhibited by children due to non-availability of structure and standard at home.
  • Parents exhibits weakness in disciplining their children.
  • Parents are undemanding.

4.UNINVOLVED PARENTING.

This parenting style is also known as neglectful parenting.This kind of parenting style is often displayed and exhibited when parents are often emotionally and physically absent.

Some of the characteristics that defines an uninvolved parenting styles are viz:

1.Little or no expectations by parents from the child.

2.Little or no communication between parents and child.

3.No responsiveness to a child’s need.

4.No demand in behavioral expectation by parents from a child.

5.Children of uninvolved parenting style tend to be a victim of another child’s deviance and may be involved in some deviance themselves.

6.Children of uninvolved parenting style suffer in social competence, academic performance,psychological development and problem behavior.

 

MEMOIR ON PARENTING.

Parenting is a role and  a responsibility ordained by divinity for the entrenchment and enforcement of heavenly virtues and earthly virtues garnished with natural and cultural values that will birth the emergence of giants expected to be in-charge of the affairs of this world with preparations of legacies and code of conducts posterity will hold on to as a will and a constitution geared towards the enhancement, enactment and promotion of a balanced society that will trigger a social order which have human development being the focal point of each generation.

Without mincing words,the current waves of social disorder and the upsurge of torrential loss of values have been traced and linked to faulty background that is connected to weak parenting.

Weak Parenting can be seen being displayed at will and without any control and caution in the stratum of our society and is eaten deeply the fabrics of our society with virtues being dropped and mortgaged for vices.

Weak Parenting will simply birth the emergence of weak personality that lack self-confidence and self-esteem.According to the popular parlance:

“Self confidence makes a man,if you don’t have it,

You are twice defeated in the race of life”.

Self-confidence and self-esteem become real when the purpose of these two virtues are inculcated into the curriculum of the developmental stage of a child but it cannot be obtained through extreme pampering and cuddling being used by many parents nowadays.

Pampering kills the consciousness and sensitivity of a child to responsiveness and responsibility with such child being unable to operate under the consciousness of boldness because pampering makes self-confidence expected to be portrayed by a child being subjective to parental views and stand.

This can be submitted as a reason behind the situation when some couples get married,they still find it difficult separating or detaching themselves from the grip of parental care they have lived with for ages,making them trying to enforce some legacies in terms of dictates and demands that are originated from their parents.

“….this is how my dad used to do it or say it….”

“…my mum don’t say such…….”

These are some of the statements that are triggered by weak parenting or soft parental training that have been known to cause rift in many marriages.

Pampering a child might be thoughtful and meaningful but if it is done in excess or without a purpose,it will end up being a contributor and a facilitator of developing weaklings that has nothing to offer the larger society except fear and inferiority complex which will end up making such child a burden to the entire society.

The purpose of any approach to parenting should be channeled towards making a child better with the development of the child to be a complete human that has body,soul and spirit being developed but pampering a child might end up denying the child the opportunity of learning and knowing the essence of being a complete human being that is stable in all ways.

Pampering unjustly makes a child a liability.

It is quite appalling to observe the unpreparedness of many parents for the responsibility of parenting.They dazzled into parenting by acting on the spur of the moment and what is envogue which is obtainable and caused by demand,dictates and pressure from parents,peers and the society which end up forcing them to entered into marriage unprepared,thereby making them an unprepared parents.

An unprepared parents will offer nothing but an unprepared parental training that will end up producing unprepared offspring that are lacking and lagging behind in having the basic understanding of their roles and responsibilities to development of their immediate environment.

In the course of marriage,many married couples are guilty of having reference and respect for the lifestyle their parents trained them with,some are fond of preferring their mother-in-law and father-in-law staying with them attending to basic domestic chores in the course of their visit or stay.This is an aberration to what is expected in marriages but it becomes obtainable and visible due to the fact that many married couples are still reminiscing and basking in the euphoria of weak parenting they were brought up with.

Weak Parenting will build weak past,

Weak past will build weak future.

Thereby becoming a vicious cycle of weakness caused by weak parenting.

An unprepared parent will end up developing an unprepared wards or children that will not only be a burden to the parents but a concern to the entire society.

Pampering with all its excuses is not an evil in itself but it should be done with moderation and it should be done with a defined purpose so that its abuse will not lead to the emergence of children that lack the basic understanding of the essence of humanism and existentialism caused by their inability in knowing what is expected and expedient by them to offer as a contribution to the entire society.

On a lighter note,they end up becoming daddy’s pet and mummy’s puppet but our world needs giants that will be a trailblazers with strong hinds feet.

It is extremely pertinent for parents to raise up giants with less dependence on them by encouraging them to have a strong mind sensitive and accommodating to the challenges and vicissitude of life with accompany solutions to them one after the other.

Parents need to be firm in training and fierce in developing their children because our world needs giants and lion-hearted men with eagle-hearted women not chicken-hearted ones that will end up making our world unbearable.

Strong mind development and strong will power should be inculcated and enshrined on the wall of all our children’s mind at earlier developmental age not pampering that will lead to the emergence of weaklings and adult thumb-suckers.

 

CONCLUSION

There is no single or definitive model of parenting.

With an authoritarian and permissive(indulgent) parenting on opposite sides of the spectrum,most conventional and modern models of parenting fall somewhere in between.

Parenting strategies as well as behaviors and ideals of what parents expect,whether communicated and /non-verbally also play a significant role in child’s development.

On a final note:

Are you a “good enough parent”?

Which of the parenting styles suit your approach to child upbringing in the context of this article?

Which of the parenting style do you think is the best in bringing up a matured and a responsible child?

THE ABBERRATION IN THE WORLD

The world is besieged by wrongs and evil that are hydra-headed in nature having tentacles on every ramifications of human existence.

Look around you and you will discover the rate and speed that things are going south is alarming,boggling and mind-blowing.

Many people have been recruited to be an agent saddled with the responsibility of spreading evil and their responses in doing wrong at all times keeps the act of doing what is right to become a crime.

Without any iota of doubt,if someone look deep into the fabrics that made up the society we live in is gradually becoming overwhelmed by the cancer evil is offering the entire humanity.

To a large extent,evil is becoming what people celebrate and anyone who stick with what is right and good ends up becoming an outcast without any hope of being justified at all.

There is scarcity in the land and this is not scarcity of resources,goods and services but there exist the scarcity of getting things done in the right way and the agents of evil are having a free moments occupying position of leadership in every stratum of human existence.

However,the aforementioned doesn’t make it right for anyone to toll on the part of destruction and perdition.

It is just a channel if sensitizing the entire human race about the necessity of salvaging the soul of human race from self-destruction that is quite avoidable.

How?

The spread of evil can be truncated if each and everyone of us becomes intentional in doing what is right at all times.

Though,evil will surely fight back,it is your intention to ensure that things are done in the right way that will make the spread of evil to be abated gradually.

It is essential that each and everyone of us invest what is necessary and essential in ensuring that nothing is done to limit the propagation of what is good and right among us.

Let’s save the soul of our society by standing firmly for what is good and defending what is right with what we have.

Let be intentional in making the best out of the world we live in by doing what is right.

Happy Sunday to everyone.

MY DRIFT ON EASTER SUNDAY 2021.

Early this morning,I had a flash of retrospect that made me to reminisce on the past few days stretching to the past few years.

One of the remembrance that got me stuck in remembrance is the last year Easter celebration.

Last year Easter celebration was a celebration of a lifetime that it’s occurrence has never been witnessed by me.

Everywhere was on locked down, security in the cities across the length and breadth of Nigeria was threatened and a kind of confusion gripped the entire human race.

The spread of Corona virus threatened the existentialism of humanity and the hope for a brighter day ahead became a flint of flash that is only the strong and the rugged in mind that could comprehend what the next move should be.

Suddenly,there was a respite and relieve,and one year down the lane,there was a gradual change in the midst of the pandemic that made a difference in the way and manner Easter is celebrated.

Hence,this confirmed the reason why we all need to be grateful and appreciative far above our intention to explode in pomp and pangeantry.

This year Easter should be tagged THANKSGIVING EASTER.

Many of us that witnessed what happened in 2020 should be grateful for the change the entire world is experiencing gradually.

While we are celebrating,we should endeavor to abide with the COVID19 safety rules,guidelines and protocols since we are not yet out of the grip if the pandemic totally.

Jesus Christ salvaged and redeemed humanity from the grip of perdition by being selfless and sacrificial in shedding his blood on the mount of Calvary.

So,you should allow the concept of Christianity practised by you to be about sacrifice and selflessness to everything around you.

Any deviation from this makes your story and claim of salvation doubtful and questionable.

No doubt about it,let’s celebrate the lesson of the death and Resurrection of Easter and let us be grateful about the sharp difference between the reality of year 2020 Easter celebration and year 2021 Easter celebration.

The difference should not be toyed with as it can be shown that God has listened to the cry and wailing of humanity.

Congratulations to you and I.

Happy Easter to everyone.

How Couples were arrested in Thailand for dealing in cocaine and other hard substances.

Nigerian Arrested With Girlfriend For Cocaine Dealing In Thailand
||CockFM News||

Regional narcotics police arrested a Nigerian man and his Thai girlfriend for allegedly dealing cocaine across the country.

Region 2 Narcotic Suppression officers captured Michael “Mark” Ikenna, 36, and Nantana Chiewpanitch, 25, in a sting operation conducted by undercover police who arranged to purchase 10 grams of cocaine in Takhiantia March 26. Officers seized 9.8 g. of white powder from him.

Investigators then searched their apartment in Bangkok where they recovered nearly a gram of cocaine and hundreds of plastic bags police said were used to package drugs for sale in Bangkok, the East and Central regions.

Police said the Nigerian claimed he was an exporter of dried dory fish to his home country. Police countered it was a shell company used to launder his drug money.

Nantana denied involvement with drug dealing, saying she has only known Ikenna for a few months and worked in a call center in Bangkok.

Police seized more than half a million baht in property from Ikenna, including his Toyota Altis and two mobile phones.

I NEARLY SHED TEARS.

While I was on my way home yesterday, suddenly my eyes was opened to a particular scenario and I ended up developing a teary eyes.

Not that this scenario was new or novel but I became touchy and emotional while thinking deep about what I saw because I have nothing at my disposal to take care of the situation.

I was moved to tears sighting a woman sitting down on a concrete pavement by the road side on Wempco Road in Ogba with two children,while one of the children was sleeping,the other was seeing playing around in the open.

It was the one asleep that really moved my eyes to tears because she should be my daughter’s age.

I kept asking myself how possible for someone to be homeless or a destitute but I remember how endemic the scourge of poverty has been in this part of the world.

While some people are blessed with uncontrolled abundance,others as are held in abject poverty with no hope of knowing what next to do.

This sight simply potrays hopelessness and homelessness and it bothered me to the extreme seeing little children being a victim of such.

How can little children be exposed to this height of poverty that no one could explain.

Sleeping and playing in the open and in the cold is too extreme to behold and think about.

This is a pointer that the world we live in has not been fair to some class of people which bring it to the fact that many of us needs to do more in becoming a force of reckoning in taking care of the society st large.

Our society be needs to create more awareness about the plight of the less privileged and fashion policies that will help in driving welfarism of the homeless and hopeless as a front burner issue to the plight of the less privileged especially little children that are expected to be innocent and unexposed to the imbalance the entire world offers.

Hopelessness and homelessness are real and they are all present around us with frustration have a toil on the sanity of many people.

Few days before sighting this anomaly,it was the thought of a bubbling young lady that committed suicide that weighed me down and it was alleged that she went suicidal due to depression.

I kept asking myself how could a young mind be against herself until she took her life but experiences around made me to understand that some people have never have a day or a moment of happiness since they step on the earthly platform.

Life has proved unbearable to them from day one and they have not been able to ride above this plate of struggle and strive for a life that is better off in all ramification.

I wish many people we see the reason why we must do a bit to salvage the plight of the less privileged around us.

May God help everyone passing through one frustration or the other.

Depression and frustration are real but suicide can never be an option.

Never give in to it.

keep your head above water.

Tomorrow is bound to be better if you keep hope alive.

Many people handle job losses badly. Quite often, some are not prepared when it happens. The best way is to have an exit plan from the first day you start work. The best employee can be fired anytime. Have that at the back of your mind always. COVID 19 happened to all of us and the economy of many lie in ruins. Some jobs have disappeared forever.

So what can you do when you’re faced with this precarious situation. I’ll continue from where I left off yesterday:

  1. Take stock of your contacts

Searching for a job can be very tasking. In the midst of serious competition and with few jobs available, getting a desired job role often requires more than your skill set. It often requires the ability to be able to leverage on relationships that have been built or exists. Your ability to connect to others and maximize your relationship with them can often be the difference to quickly snapping up a job, getting interview appointments or even getting startup capital for a business.

I once worked with a younger colleague who was given a very handsome sum of money to start up a business by a client when he told the client he was leaving the job. Another was allowed to work with his client for six months, drawing salaries, until he got a job. This is one of the reasons relationships are very important. Be careful how you treat your customers. I usually tell people that when you serve others well, you’re actually building a bank of goodwill for yourself. You may need to draw from that bank later.

Take stock of your contacts. Who do you know? Connect with your network. If you belong to social clubs and associations, leverage on them. This is why I subscribe to folks belonging to and being actively involved with clubs like Rotary, Lions and others. Get involved with your alumni association and your social connections. Never underestimate the power of your network.

  1. Revamp your CV
    Since you’re now in the job market, your cv has to be reviewed. Update your resume with your skills. Match your qualifications with the jobs you’re applying for. Check your CV to ensure all the information is captured appropriately.
    Curriculum Vitae has its root meaning from a Latin word which means ‘course of life’. Your CV is a snapshot of who you are and what you have done- a summary of your background, experience, education, achievements, awards and other activities that may be taken into consideration when looking for a job.

Your CV is the first thing a prospective employer sees before seeing you. Oftentimes, many employers have formed their impression about the candidate based on their CV even before the in-person interview. It is therefore important that it should be well laid out with no typos, errors or spelling mistakes. I have interviewed candidates with errors in the way their names were written on their CV. Ensure that you review your CV for correctness and accuracy as all errors therein are strictly yours even if a third party produced it for you. When a candidate gives out such a CV, you create the impression of not paying attention to details and being disorganized.

  1. Update your LinkedIn Profile and Clean Up Your Social Media
    You’re most likely to be checked out on LinkedIn first before any other social media platform. Spend time connecting on LinkedIn. Use a good professional picture. Update your contact information. List your relevant skills. Get endorsed by others. Most importantly, engage on LinkedIn. Be active on LinkedIn. Follow relevant influencers.

You should use your social media to build bridges especially now that you may need a bridge to cross over to the next phase of your life. This is why I often pity toxic people on social media. What if you come to an interview with someone you have trolled? Clean up your social media because many employers now conduct background checks.

  1. Get references
    I once got a job because a colleague at work referred me to his former boss. He had given me a note on his call card and asked me to take it to his former boss. I did and the former boss interviewed me on the spot. I was hired after going through the process. Think of those who can give you references. Select good names in your network of contacts and approach them for their consent. A good reference can open the door. Good references work especially in situations where the referee knows key contacts in the organization you’re interested in. Many get jobs because someone put in a word for them. Sometimes, it can even be a former boss. Or a colleague.
    Can someone put in a word for you?

I’ll continue tomorrow.

After A Job Loss, What’s Next?- 1

I’m writing this tonight because I read a response to my last post on soft skills where a respondent said he lost his job today. Losing a job can be a very traumatic experience. No one wants to lose his or her source of income- no matter how little it may be. A job loss means there are no more paychecks- at least for now- yet the bills will not stop coming. The rent will fall due. School fees will come if you have kids.

This is a period many fall into depression and don’t know what to do. COVID 19 took away many jobs and sources of income. A job loss however, should not be the end of the world. There are certain actions one can take to handle this temporary situation well.

  1. Take stock of your current finances
    Do an inventory of your financial picture. How much do you have saved? What liquid assets do you have? Liquid assets are things you can easily convert to cash. What other assets do you have? What bills are going to fall due within the short term and long term? If you’re married, do this with your partner and consider their own income too. Are you on HMO? You want to be sure you can handle any unexpected medical emergencies. What about your pension contributions? Can you draw from it? Take steps to take control of your finances- stop any unnecessary spending. Plug any hole immediately.
  2. Take stock of your skills
    What skills do you have?
    There are 3 major skills employers look for:
  3. Employability skills
  4. Transferable Skills
  5. Technical Skills

Employability skills are basic skills without which it is very difficult for you to navigate the workplace. They are the skills one requires irrespective of the sector or job role- foundational in nature and critical to your job-readiness. A few of them are good communication, motivation, initiative, reliability, following instructions, team work, patience, resilience and emotional control among others.

Transferable Skills are expertise that are useful across various jobs and industries. This means the skills are the same even if one employee moves to another company. Examples are research and analytic skills, problem-solving, critical thinking, strategy, numeracy, written communication, time management, work ethics and multi-tasking.

Technical Skills help you perform specific tasks. They are often practical and relates to IT, mechanical, scientific tasks, etc but are not necessarily technological in nature. Examples of technical skills include knowledge of a programming language, software proficiency, project management and data analysis among others.

I will continue with the second part tomorrow.

Why She slapped her?


||CockFM News||

Nollywood actress, Remi Surutu has finally revealed the reason why she slapped her colleague, Fathia Balogun, at a burial ceremony in Lagos.

According to reports, the movie stars attended the burial ceremony of Mr Bamidele Omosehin’s late dad. However, trouble started when Remi Surutu walked up to Fathia Balogun’s table at the event and landed an unprovoked slap on her face.

The incident led to a major fight between the actresses and it took the intervention of other guests to separate them and calm their frayed nerves.

Remi Surutu finally opens

“My fight with Fathia Williams started when I began hearing all manner of jargons, she was saying about me. I heard she’s been going about running me down in the presence of many of our colleagues and movie producers. She’s messing up big time and somebody needed to put her in a place where she belongs.

“This is the person I took in like a sister. We were very close when she joined the industry. I can say it boldly that I was instrumental to her relationship with Saidi Balogun then. They were both living with me in Magodo. I had to send them out because they always fight, and they almost injured my mum.

“I don’t know why she suddenly grow that hatred for me and started running me down. Till date, I still can not say what I’ve done to deserve that from her. There are so many other things she did that I can’t say here.”

“Faithia is so full of herself, probably because they used to deceive her, by calling her the Queen of all the Actresses, “Pelu awon tani”. I decided to confront her and deal with her at that event, because somebody needed to call her to order. And God saved her that day and thank God for the intervention of other colleagues around. I told her “if you move closer to me, I will break bottle on your head”

“When people started calling us to settle it amicably, I told them I am not ready to settle anything with her, and I don’t feel remorseful for attacking her. I have no regret at all, she’s really messing up and she needed to be put in her place”.

Quite emotional.

Teary and scary.

Couples committed suicide in Delta State

A couple has been found dead at their apartment in Ojigbo Crescent, off Sapele-Effurun Road, Uvwie LGA of Delta State.

The couple, 33-year-old Emmanuel Oshiotu and Amaka Okafor, 25, were found by neighbours on Thursday, February 25. It was gathered that a poisonous substance and a knife were found beside their bodies indicating suicide, or maybe murder-suicide.

According to report, a neighbor said at about 5:00 a.m., Emmanuel was heard screaming for help. On breaking into his room, he was found foaming from his mouth, while his girlfriend’s body laid a few distance from him.

The lovers were rushed to the Central Hospital, Warri, where they were both confirmed dead and bodies later deposited in the morgue.

How boborisky went dirty with Nkechi Blessing.

Copied

Instagram was on fire yesterday. It was a dirty fight between Bobrisky and actress Nkechi Blessing.

Unprintable words were said. Insults were rained. Top secrets revealed.

I have never seen such dirty fight on social media, in recent times.

Bobrisky was hotter and tougher. She won.
She said Nkechi’s mum used her (Nkechi)for prostitution in mom’s beer parlour business.

Auntie Bobrisky challenged Nkechi to screen-munch her bank account balance so they compete at that level first.

Bobrisky flaunted her fleets of cars, involving a 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible, a 2019 Range Rover Velar SUV Velar, a Mercedes-Benz GLE 43 AMG Coupe and a 2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon SUV.

According to the cross-dresser, Nkechi can only boast of a Toyota Venza. Mad ooo!

She said Nkechi would rather sleep with men and still give them money.

She said virtually all Nollywood guys have taken their turns on Nkechi.🙄

God forbid I say other X-rated comments from Bobrisky. Well, Nkechi finally went silent, even when she started it all.
She then deleted all her yabs and jabs.

All secrets let out. Nothing left in the secret room.

Chai! This kain matter dey taya me o!

Well, here is the take-home:

  1. Before you get into a messy fight, find out if you can finish that fight. You may not be the match of the next person.
  2. Before you get close to people, factor in days you will quarrel and how the so-called friend will treat your top secrets.

‘He Invited Me For It’: Zimbabwean Woman Caught Sleeping With A 13-Year-Old Boy
||CockFM News||

A GREENDALE woman was on Tuesday arrested after she was caught having sex with a 13-year-old boy at the latter’s parents’ home in Houghton Park. ­

The unidentified woman was quick to defend herself to arresting police officers by showing them condoms, saying they had had protected sex.

Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrest, saying investigations had since begun.

“­The Zimbabwe Republic Police would like to confirm the arrest of a woman alleged to have been caught having sex with a minor in Houghton Park,” said Ass Comm Nyathi.

“Investigations with a view to get to the bottom of the case have since begun and details will be released in due course,” he said.

In an interview, the yet to-be-identified woman told H-Metro that the minor was the one who phoned her for sex at his parents’ house.

“Chandatadza chii inini ndaita zvekudaidzwa ndazoziva sei pamba pake dai asina kundifonera,” said the woman in tears.

“We had protected sex and I do not see any reason why I can be treated like a thief or robber,” she said while being led to a police vehicle. ­

The minor’s mother was reported to have returned home and caught the boy being sexually abused by the woman believed to be a sex worker. ­

The woman was taken to Waterfalls Police Station where she was detained.

HE IS DOING WELL.

One of the experiences I garnered in life is that there is a way some individuals have the power to put others in darkness.

Until when such individuals are pushed aside,anyone under their purview will remain far away from lime light.

In other not to digress to the extreme,I will want to point it out that I spent a larger part of my time to cast a spell on the level of maladministration my state witnessed during the large regime.

Even though the present man st the helm of affairs in Osun State was part of the administration but it is understandable when you are working with some individuals especially the proud and the hedgy ones,you might find it hard to push your ideas and views across.

If you do,you will end up being tagged as someone who is over-ambitious and someone who is desperate to take over.

No need of delving into this,I was once a victim.

It is with every fiber of my being that the present man at the helm of affairs in Osun State is really doing well.

No wonder he was granted this award.

Not that I am holding a political brief for him but the record is all over in the State of Osun.

He has been able to balance the human angle,welfarism angle and infrastructural angle of development in Osun State.

Unlike the one that left who is an extremist that want to see Osun State becoming Lagos or United Arab Emirates at the expense of indigenes of Osun State by throwing them into the dungeon of disrepair and abject poverty.

Governor Oyetola is really doing well and he has a grasp of what it takes to lead people of his clime.

One of the first step he took is his effort in giving back Ilesa Grammar School the recognition desired as a Premier Grammar School in Ijesaland which the person that called himself a son of the soil destroyed systematically.

Thanks to God that my Alma Mata is back.

In another angle,he has been able to promote the dignity of humanity by paying Salary on time with Pensioners smiling to the bank on a monthly basis without any stress.

Developmentally,he has not been found wanting in developing the State becauseI read about the Ola It’s fly-over bridge been in the pipeline presently.

In thesame vein,the choice of your cabinet having 3 to 4 commissioners being products of LAUTECH is another level of respect that you earned from me

Gradual approach to development is what matters not wastage and unnecessarily copy and paste ideology that threw the entire state into confusion in the last tenure.

I wish you the best Sir .

And there is no doubt that you did not need rigging to be elected for another four years.

Congratulations.
