Sometimes in Life what we want doesn't want us

Do not Awaken Love until it pleases

What have we Become?

Is Motherhood really about making sacrifices or choices

Tomorrow may never come

Made a Mistake? Don't fret. It's all for you good.

Made a Mistake? Don't fret. It's all for you good.



As a creative person and someone who does handwork, there have been times I was making something or designing a cake and I made mistakes, but because I am the one making it, I turn that mistake into a style. And if you aren’t told, you wouldn’t know it was a mistake.

Is the Black Race under a Curse?

Is the Black Race under a Curse?




I’m presently reading a book on the history of Nigeria and I came across the slave trade business in Nigeria.  I read how we sold our own people for Tin, for copper, for CLOTH, for FAME and POWER. Honestly, it really pained me.

Reflections of a Grateful Heart

Reflections of a Grateful Heart


Looking back over my life, I have come to the realization that I would not be where I am today if not for the experiences I have been through.

PROSE: THE LOVER I NEVER KNEW

PROSE: THE LOVER I NEVER KNEW





It was the first day of the week, a day Miyabi dreaded so much. She hated Mondays, they were a constant reminder that she was a failure. She had been seeking for a job for the past one and half year without success and her parents were giving her a hard time, they felt their investment in her was a waste. So at any and every opportunity she got, she would always leave the house.

THIS IS WHO I AM; A POEM




This is me
 I am a Woman

Created in the Image of God
And Likeness of God
Created to fulfil a purpose
And an Assignment

I am blessed
I am a blessing

I am joy
I am help; A helpmeet

I am the daughter of the
Most High

I am Beautiful, Unique
And Exceptional

A Sister, A Friend

A Confidant
The best friend you
Could ever have

I am Complete

I am Secure
This is me
This is who I am

Who are you?

Stop breaking your Own Heart

Stop breaking your Own Heart




A lack of direction & purpose is often what leads to confusion in the choice of a marriage partner. If you do not know where you are going, you'll definitely go with any Tom, Dick & Harry that shows up because you lack purpose. How will you know who you should take along with you in this journey of Life when you don't even know where you're going?

Remember Now Thy Creator in the Days of Thy Youth

Remember Now Thy Creator in the Days of Thy Youth




This past week while browsing through Instagram, I came across a question, a 22-year-old was asking. Dude was in a relationship and wants to start having sex but his girlfriend wants to keep her virginity until marriage. He was contemplating leaving the relationship so he could be free to have sex with other girls, he was asking for advice on what to do.

INEC will not count Your Prayer Points: Go and Get your PVC

INEC will not count Your Prayer Points: Go and Get your PVC


My fellow Nigerians, hahaha. Forgive me but I have to start this way. You know in Nigeria when a Government official begins with my Fellow Nigerians, you know they want to say something serious.  

Let's talk about Gifts and Talents.

Let's talk about Gifts and Talents.



Every gift, talent and passion are given by God to us. He blesses us with gifts and talents for us to use and use them for His glory. The problem now arises when we misuse these gifts to suit our own purpose. For example, people gifted in ICT using this gift for internet fraud. This is not the intention of God.

Say Hello to the New Msc Graduate

Say Hello to the New Msc Graduate




Hello my people, long time no hear. I know it’s been a while and I hate giving excuses but this time around, my absence was for a good cause. Last week, I finally graduated from my MSc Programme, yaaaaayyyy

I was so excited that at last, I have finally finished. I wrote here how it was one hell of a task finishing school, but I am happy to announce I am now an MSc graduate.

Funny enough, in the midst of my excitement, I fell ill. And I hate falling sick. Coupled with that, I had to do clearance and what not, but guys I’m back.

I have new articles to write, and they are quite engaging but I don’t write them because I often ask myself, would people comment? I hope this year, we can be more engaging, anyway Sorry I digressed. 

Let me post my graduation pictures. Don’t be jealous. Hahahahaha. There was so much to eat and drink, in fact, I just finished the last piece of chocolate cake I baked for the occasion. 



Before I go, Let me quickly share something I learnt from this whole process.


On the road to success, you will encounter many challenges, it's normal to encounter challenges, but very abnormal to quit especially if it's something you really want to do. 

No matter what those challenges are, I honestly don't care. If you have set your mind to do something; do it. If you start a project, finish it. Success is not for the faint-hearted, it is for those who have made up their minds that no matter what comes their way, they must succeed. 

The truth is I almost gave up on completing my Masters, but I'm grateful and happy I didn't. If you can dream it, you can do it.

I am rooting for you.Before you go, enjoy these few pics from my graduation.
