A few of us must have heard this saying “Na borrow borrow make am rich“. Ever since we were little, our parents have frowned against borrowing, be it a pencil or a book, they have always taught us that contentment is key and to make do with what we are given or what we have.
Let’s put our money where our mouths are and talk about finance. It’s such a fancy word isn’t it, “finance”? We spend the first two decades of our lives learning about allowances, and piggy banks, ‘allawee‘ and ‘magas‘ paying up, but no one ever sits down to help us understand finance. That is, until now.
Cultism in Nigeria now has a great competitor, religion. These religious organisations do a lot of good, but like anything consistent of men, they also perpetuate a lot of evil. Ensure that no religious establishment is leading you into folly in the name of faith. The Bible says that we should rightfully balance the word
Doesn’t it feel like in the moment you need them the most, that’s when your friends desert you? Having the weight of the world on your shoulder, certain that only bad things wait around the corner for you, and they sleep on your troubles. The very same friends that once called on you when they
In this time and country we live in, it doesn’t help that people don’t understand depression or even believe it exists.

Insults and abuses are rained on the hapless
Last week the real Slim Shady dropped a surprise album titled Kamikaze. And while you hid your excitement from your WhatsApp contacts who believe you don’t listen to secular music, the twitterverse went abuzz with excitement. Naturally we see all news as good news. So here’s the gospel truth in Eminems new album. Curse words,
Don’t you just find it annoying when people say you’re young and therefore have nothing to worry about? As though age is the meter on a stress scale and there’s no significant weight on your shoulders. In a way they are right, there’s nothing to worry about because there’s EVERYTHING to worry about! Is it
In the Twilight Saga, Bella pale, frail, melodramatic pretty girl is attending a new high school. Jacob (acted by a tan, ripped Jacob Lautner) is interested in Bella, but like our church girls, Bella is interested in something a bit more exciting. She’s interested in Edward – a vampire. Edward is far from tall-dark-and-handsome. It’s
Toyosi asked Amaka if the female friend she was bringing along for their hangout that weekend was toastable. Amaka immediately replied ‘Yes. She’s in a relationship, though…but it’s her choice.” The other guy – Kayode, with whom they shared the back seat of a red Toyota rolling idly in traffic, snapped at Amaka for saying
Almost every reason they gave you NOT to have sex is a BIG FAT LIE. At least 65% of the time the girl won’t get pregnant, you won’t get an STD and it most likely won’t destroy your future. There are many successful Christian people in their 40’s and 50’s who had premarital sex. It’s
Yesterday was a black day in Lagos, but we can all agree that it has been all black couple of months, weeks and days in Nigeria. Let’s talk, about action today on #FreestyleFriday It is only a matter of time before the tanker of frustration falls over and sets this entire nation on fire. Don’t
If you’re a comic book fan then you might know a bit about the X-Men. An elite group of superheroes who have superpowers granted to them by the X-gene. A gene which allows for the natural progression to the next evolutionary step. In essence the gene allows you to go beyond being Homo Sapien, to
Young, black, male and Nigerian? Then you are part of one of the endangered species of the 21st Century! Worse still there’s no protection, there’s a license to manhandle you on sight. But why do you have a target on your chest? The 21st Century young Nigerian male is under sociological, psychological and even physical
“Tucked a sensitive rapper back in his Pajama clothes’ rapped Kendrick Lamar a few years back, allegedly about Drake. But K. Dot knows better than to outrightly go after a commercial juggernaut like Drake. Pusha T, not so much. Pusha dissed Drake and, in his diss, mentioned Drake’s hidden illegitimate child, Drake’s relationship with a
If dreams come true, then so do nightmares. And everyone’s worst nightmare is failure. Take Karius who by most accounts cost Liverpool the Champions League title. A perfect life is possible, but chances are, like Karius, you’ll make a few mistakes along the way. The pressure of a thousand eyes on you is overwhelming. Even
