“Look at how simple this report looks! You have belittled the nature of the project by not using complex professional terminologies. This report looks like it was written for a secondary school student”, Josh said as he stared at the report I spent 2 weeks working on. Hurt and anger made my blood boil as
Tito always wanted to fit in. She was pretty with a nice figure, but she lacked one thing, being a ‘real’ chic, 100% female. For instance, when she was 7, all her friends and female classmates wanted to be princesses but she wanted to be a soldier. They all loved dolls and playing dress up
Have you ever waited or are you still waiting on the Lord for a breakthrough in a particular area of your life? Be encouraged with this scripture, Proverbs 23:18 (KJV), “…for surely there is an end; and the expectations of the righteous will not be cut off.” I had moved to my current department in
His eyebrows arched in curiosity as the discussions heated up and various slangs and terms were thrown into the fray. He wasn’t sure why they were having all the fracas but somewhere at the back of his mind, he knew it was all because of the money in the offing. It was a market place
You left the house looking particularly haggard today. Slippers, that shirt with a torn sleeve, no deodorant. But you’re in a hurry and it’s just the market you’re going to after all. So who cares? You’ve been procrastinating about a couple of personal errands. And now you’ve got to get it all done in the
“You smell nice”, “You look beautiful”, “Your spouse is lucky to have you” – common phrases that can be seen as a compliment or harassment. Let’s talk about a few scenarios, Scenario 1 – Emotional Connection Damien walked into the office, and the first person he saw was Sewa. ‘Here we go again’, he thought
Who’s a perfect Mom? Please comment below, so we can applaud you! Why beat yourself up because you can’t seem to get her ponytail right? Who says Mary is better than you, just cause she bakes every weekend for her children? Why do you think that you’re the worst Mother on earth because you failed
It started like every other morning, nothing out of the ordinary. You know how some people wake up and say they felt different or could sense something was about to happen but could not put their finger on it? Like an omen? Well, that did not happen to me. I woke up that morning feeling
What, where, when really is the market place? Is it Idumota, or Apongbon or Yaba? Is it where hordes of people gather to sell pepper, tomatoes and stuff or is it NSE on Customs Street or NYSE? If you’ve ever been to Isale Eko or Katangowa, then you’d pride yourself as having been to the
Your name is Dare (maybe) and you don’t drive a car. Neither do you have those limited edition Air Jordans. Let’s be honest, the reason you don’t go clubbing has nothing to do with your faith, the bouncers just won’t let you in (don’t worry, we won’t tell, He already knows). But the truth is,
Last week was epic, as we walked, strolled or were dragged to our polling units to vote. I did mention my argument with my CFO and what was at stake – bragging rights; to keep our egos intact, I won’t tell you who won. One thing is for sure, it was worth the intellectual exercise.
This thing called ‘Mom Guilt’ is popular, globally, in the spheres of maternity, positive parenting, intentional motherhood and so on. However, in Nigeria, the name is new but not the feeling.

Psalm 122: 6-7 asks us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (our areas of residence and citizenship): “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.” We thank God for the wonderful people and resources He has blessed our nation with; we thank Him
So the Presidential and the National Assembly elections have come and gone until another four years. Yes, we prepped, we argued, we even spent tons of money in travels, electioneering, covering for the costs of work-free days etc. Sadly, some beloved citizens, friends and family passed- may their souls rest well. No matter how the
I grew up watching the series “Everybody Hates Chris”. It’s a very interesting series, in which everyone seemed to not like him, why? Because he was not like everyone else. He was different. By different, I don’t mean being gay or not liking the sex or body you are in (whatever that means). The kind
