Weathering Social Media Storms

If you have seen the news lately, it would seem that’s there’s some type of rapture happening. Not the type that was seen in the book of Revelation by John. It’s the rapture of all your fav celebrities by Nigerian financial crime agents. I bet two weeks ago, a lot of us were like “God when?” or were ‘tapping’ into wealth and the flagrant display of wealth on SM. When one dares to ask about the celeb’s source of income, you get tagged a ‘hater’. Earlier this year, it seemed that these particular set of people were winning and......

The "Mistake" Of Being Perfect

The “Mistake” Of Being Perfect

WARNING: Explicit Spiri-Koko Content Follows Two weeks ago we discussed how it may be difficult to learn from your mistakes because things constantly change and only God’s omniscience remains the same. As we continue with the theme of “Understanding the Season, we must “gbos” our own “gbas” to give you balance. You avoid failure and mistakes by walking in God’s wisdom, but you must learn not to even be so sin (mistake) conscious in the first place. The truth about redemption has not been emphasized lately in our local churches and denominations because of fear (an unwarranted phobia for...

Understanding Wealth

Understanding Wealth

The Government: “Nigerian youths are lazy!” Nigerian youths: “Our public office holders are inept and corrupt!” Who are your roles models? Is education a scam? In a system where a president need not be a BSc. holder to rule a country, but you go to school, spend maybe 7, 5 or 4 years, graduate, serve your fatherland for 1 year and still be considered unemployable (Kmt). It is fair to think that education is a scam. What then is the key to wealth? How can a young, smart and hardworking individual break into wealth? Is it just by sheer...

Why You Can't Learn From Your Mistakes

Why You Can’t Learn From Your Mistakes

Hocus pocus!!! The idea that you can learn from your mistakes is like being a pro at Marco Polo (a game where one person closes his eyes whilst another gets as far away as possible, then the blind person shouts “Marco!” and the other shouts “polo!”, and the blind person is to find the other using sound alone). Problem is this hide-and-seek game is played in the swimming pool. Same game, same water but I bet the variables will change in the sea in the midst of a storm, or in a lake in the midst of swans, or...

When Doing The Right Thing Makes You The Bad Guy

When Doing The Right Thing Makes You The Bad Guy

As good and ethical as doing the right thing seems it does not usually stand-alone. That is to say that doing the right thing cannot and must not be taken out of context. An action may be right per se, but put several factors into consideration and it becomes plain wrong. Consider the following: TIMING “Doing the right thing at the wrong time” is quite a widespread saying. There’s no such thing, however, as doing the right things at wrong times. A good act done out of timing is an absolutely wrong deed. See yourself as a Red Cross...

Popcorn And The Theatre Of The Mind

Popcorn And The Theatre Of The Mind

We all have movies playing in our minds. Whether it be the Heartbreak Romance starring our Exes and featuring a Westlife soundtrack, or the Science Fiction of how we were genetically modified to look like our parents when we are the offspring of some wealthy billionaires somewhere. A film is being produced constantly. Sometimes they are short films based on worry. With minimum budget and very poor storytelling, we deliver to the silver screen of our soul a tale of how everything that can go wrong, will. But this capacity to imagine and meditate was not given to us...

Mary Had A Little Lamb

Mary Had A Little Lamb

It was a terrible, terrible day. I mean the mass shootings in America, the revolution and lack thereof in Nigeria, not to mention being over halfway through the year and not yet meeting your new year resolutions, but this, this was the worst! First of all, Herod’s men went around committing infant genocide by killing male babies like Christmas chickens. Then the Innkeeper had the nerve to tell me – the goose about to lay the golden egg – that there is no room for us (notice he didn’t say there’s no room, he said there is no room...

Subway Surf And Eternal Life

Subway Surf And Eternal Life

For a moment there, we were all running wild and free and forever until we tripped or fell and some monster reared its ugly head and swallowed us up. That was Temple Run, an Android game whose popularity at the time seemed to know no end, and whose gaming potential did know no end. But then came along Subway Surf, more urban and relatable: a little kid being a little kid, running away from some guy in a uniform at the subway, awesome. What does this have to do with anything? Well, I was waiting for a vehicle the...

You Are Dying

You Are Dying

God has given each and every one of us an intention and purpose. Life, as we see it, is really not only about talent. Many of us are simply living in fear, doing the same things we have always done because we feel comfortable and safe. We forget that we can never get back every opportunity we miss. We were made for more, and with this said, we need to discern how to live to our full potential of who God originally designed us to be. The phrase “fear not” is used at least 80 times in the Bible,...

Why I Would Never Be A Christian

Why I Would Never Be A Christian

What if I told you the word “Christian” was not a revelation? It wasn’t. Your mantra, your go-to label, your safe little box that you tick on forms was no revelation of the disciples of Christ. It was, in fact, most likely coined by the unregenerated, carnal minds of the world. So what’s the harm, since it means “Christ-like” doesn’t it? Yes, the same way that I could tell my crush that her beauty is like a dove (singular similarity) or my nemesis that he moves about like a roaring lion looking for whom to devour. In both these...
