“I’m not you!” Your friend shouts. You’ve just given her a piece of advice, one based on a universal truth. Perhaps you’ve asked her to turn the other cheek, or to save more and spend less, or to quit her relationship with a ‘Yoruba demon’. But even though she admits that what you’ve said is
Like most people, you already know that smoking is bad for your health. But do you really understand just how dangerous smoking really is? Tobacco contains nicotine, a highly addictive drug that makes it difficult for smokers to kick the habit. Tobacco products also contain many poisonous and harmful substances that cause disease and premature
What ideas are you keeping up with? It appears that as soon as everyone gets on a bandwagon, we are tempted to join them. But it never quite ends there, you get sucked into a slippery slope of one bad idea after the other. First, you keep up with the Kardashians. Before you know it,
Madmen, outcasts, weirdos! These were the words used to describe geniuses at one point or the other in their life. Whether it was Jesus, Da Vinci, Sia or Zuckerberg, they all had to carry a cross, the cross of a great idea! We’ve all had them – ideas that creep up on us in the
Don’t get me wrong, maybe 20 years ago Jane’s plan would have been perfect and realistic. Then there’s also the rule of exception (that one lucky person that has things go for them exactly as planned). But, we can all agree that our present economy isn’t smiling, and the streets are getting crowded as a
Buhari had it wrong. We aren’t lazy. It is, in fact, the exact opposite. We work very hard to make ends meet. We just play a whole lot harder. Take David who blows bae off for weeks on end because he’s trying to beat that deadline at work. He finally gets the job done and
It’s a scene in an old Nollywood movie. The guy meets the lady who is probably an old flame, someone he wooed back in the days on the street. He is surprised she isn’t married yet and wonders how he can help her ministry. He blurts out “So you never marry?…. be say me sef
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. On social media you see news that a certain popular individual committed or attempted suicide. The comments on such grievous story will literally leave you sad. 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
