Somewhere deep in your head or heart, you already know if you are going to do something or not. Every discussion or thinking you do afterward is simply to look for a reason to justify your position.
They had caught me. Truly, I was lost in thought. But how can I tell them I was thinking about how to get a husband?
Hold on. They were the ones that put this thought in my head. I wasn’t thinking about getting married until our discussion yesterday.
I speak English, Yoruba, Benin, Ishan, and Pidgin English. If you have a problem with me throwing multilingual and polyglot into my CV, then you can schedule a bout with me at the National Stadium.
“Dog wey go kill elephant, e go done dey kill rat from small.”
In which universe do dogs kill elephants? Why would a dog need to kill an elephant?
There is a joy that comes from understanding things. I found this as a child, and ever since, my quest for knowledge has been boundless. And for each new thing I learn, the satisfaction I gain is unquantifiable.
Why would you deny yourself of this pleasure?
More important than my fear or dislike for canines, if all Men are dogs, and all dogs go to heaven, can you see where I’m going with this?
Of what use is a friend that is never available when needed? What are you supposed to do with a friend who shows up only a couple of days after they were needed?
The second girl said Rukevwe was actually on the dance floor too. Again my heart sank. She must have found the boy she was looking for and began dancing with him.
The most important lesson I have learned from this practice is that when we pray for others to change, sometimes, God changes them. Other times, he changes our ability to notice or bear it.
Then there are times heaven is more interested in something else.
Like the DNA, core competencies are unique to everyone. We develop and adapt them differently.
Even when we posses similar traits, how we apply them will still be different.
I don’t know how many people found God through one of DMX’s prayers, verses, or interviews, but I hope someone did. I believe that would be an eternal source of joy for him.
Everything is real life. Online or in person, it is all real life. The consequences for your immaturity and foolishness are also not limited to online.
This hen must really be crazy!!! Why didn’t she scavenge for worms and ants in the ground for her chicks?
Why wait till I’ve gathered the dirts?
One of the things I love the most is having a realization out of the blue. Like I’m seated, working on “K”, and then “C⁷⁹¹” from ten years ago pops up in my mind, but not as a problem, but as a solution.
Hannah too, someone that never wants any PDA, now she is asking for a kiss in front of company.
My village people are working on my case overtime. This is the worst setup of the century.
If what we desire in any endeavor is to be successful, then what does it mean to peak too soon? If what I desire is to succeed, why should I be worried about the success coming too early?
Who would have thought that my parents would ever ask me about my boyfriend when they had spent their whole life ensuring no man comes near me?
The time has come for me to take my “toasters” seriously.
The benefits of having a routine are such that many creatives are yet to understand. Looking at creatives around me, we tend to be disorganized, yet do not understand the correlation between being organized and being creative.
In a bid to act fast, we leave behind messes that in the future hamper our creation process.
Is there any point in arguing or discussing with you when we both know you’ll never change your mind?
If no proof is sufficient, or it will take a ridiculous amount of evidence to make you budge, then there is no need to have this conversation.
As with my Candy Crush saga, many people are stuck in different situations in life because they believe it is impossible to get past it, or they believe they lack the wherewithal to get past it.
One question I am always fascinated to hear asked, is “who is in charge here?”
Whenever that question is asked, it is either a mess has been made, or a mess is about to be made. Why else would someone ask, who is in charge here?
I have always been reluctant about changing my keyboard app. I consider it an essential commodity. That isn’t something I’m open to experimenting with.
Immediately she was done, the D.J started his main duty. P-square’s busy body was the hit song of the moment. There was no better song with which to start the party.
Whenever I go through my timeline in the app, I am always startled by the number of highlights I see some people make.
Sometimes, I’m left wondering, if you spend this much time highlighting, how much time do you have left to read?
Yellow journalism or the yellow press is a type of journalism that does not report much real news with facts. Instead, it is the use of shocking headlines that catch people’s attention to sell more newspapers.
As much as I enjoy listening to expository sermons in Church, reading devotionals from Life Church’s Bible, and studying the Bible on my own, there is another source of Bible teaching I think many people underrate.
Jesus will forgive you for fornication or adultery, but if you got an STD while at it, you’ll have to bear the pain and treat it. He would forgive you for stealing, but you will spend a couple of years in jail if caught.
Grace does not exist in the lawbook, and even if your victim forgives you, the state might not.
If Christ’s death assures you of salvation, what does His resurrection has to offer? If “it is finished” at His death, then of what use is His resurrection?
He could have gone from the grave to heaven, why was He resurrected instead?
These witches have succeeded. The Coven have had their way. How in the world did Tomi and Hannah get home before me?
Why do they look content? Who cooked? Why are they eating together?
My enemies have finally gotten me.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what your name is or what you are called. What matters is what you answer to.
More importantly, if you don’t like what you are being called, insist that it be changed. Or just stop responding to the wrong one.
We the International Association of Backstabbers want to solemnly remember one of our patriarchs this Easter season.
Our hearts and minds go out to Mr. Judas, the son of Iscariot.
It is weird what my brain chooses to remember, and when. It is so bad, that it is disgraceful.
I’m talking disgraceful on a facepalm level. Like, “let this ground open up and swallow me” level of disgraceful.
As much as we want to say judge not, there is always going to be morality, and there will always be a need to judge.
Just like a judge in a courtroom should never succumb to cowardice, so should you.
I can remember when Laycon met Don Jazzy. I believe Laycon was suppressing a lot of excitement at that moment. He is expected to hug or shake hands with Don Jazzy. That is pop culture etiquette. But this is Don Jazzy.
Whatever you have to say about Judas Iscariot, at least he got paid something.
By the way, how much were you paid the last time you betrayed your friends, your values, or yourself?
As the underdog, you need to understand why people support you. Investors expect a return on investment. But at least, they have put their money, or time, or other resources where their mouth is.
Students from other schools must be wondering, “what is an SSS1 student doing being the quizmaster?” While my schoolmates would be asking, “why is this boy who isn’t in our club the quizmaster?”
It is like wanting to touch the fire because you don’t trust other’s account of how hot it is. Or trying to taste every food to know which is sweet and which is not.
At the end of the day, you would eventually learn your lessons, but how long will it take? More importantly, what would it cost you to learn?
This has gone beyond engaging in self-destructive behavior. You are now in the territory of shooting yourself in the foot and sticking the bloody foot in your mouth.
You are burning bridges and taking others as collateral damages in the process.
The only way Crown of Clay could have been any better was for Olamide to have a verse on it. As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Pheelz or someone else either leaks or release a version featuring Olamide in the future.
I hope this masterpiece gets discovered and appreciated by Blacks and Africans all over the world.
The church next repainted their whole premises. They also did a new billboard at their entrance.
This time around though, instead of a promise of miracles, signs, and wonders, the payoff at the bottom of the signboard was “there can be fake miracles, but there is no fake teaching.”
I never thought about something. What happens if Hannah and Tomi got home before me?
No way! Heavens forbid bad thing. Those two girls should never be left alone together.
