I Sat With Millionaires, and Here are 5 Lessons I Learned

I am fortunate to have sat with movers and shakers in industries from tech to fashion to real estate, and top executives in corporate America. I’ve sat one-on-one with each of them, just listening to their stories, and learning from their struggles, successes, and tough decisions they’ve had to make. Omo, don’t be deceived by what you see on the outside oh, the hustule is real out there in the streets.

6 Prayers To Pray, Especially Now

Photo credit: Shade

Labake commented on my previous post, “Dear white people, stop killing us”. She expressed her frustration on how tired and helpless we feel right now. I felt that to my core, so I decided to send out some encouragement to everyone who is feeling this way. Irrespective of your race and current frustrations, let’s remember that we have the ultimate helper, Jesus. So we don’t have to suffer alone. For my Christian friends, here are 6 prayers to pray, especially now.

Dear White People, Stop Killing Us

No dilly dallying, beating around the bush here. I just have a simple message to the (few) racist white people. Stop killing us! Sheesh! How wicked can your hearts be? Just how disgustingly wicked can you be to put your knee on a fellow human’s neck for so long that his life leaves his body? I mean, he’s gone. Dead. Does that even make you cringe at all? And your colleagues stand there in approval of what you are doing? The crowd is pleading along with George Floyd for you to let go, but it means absolutely nothing because the fallen system will back you up for lynching an African American man in broad daylight. It’s the reason why our old uncle in the White House has not yet addressed the nation about this… it’s almost like an implied approval. Sickening.

A Letter to The Good Men

I am writing this letter to the good, responsible men because the world doesn’t focus enough on them. You know who unfortunately gets all the attention? Awon mezzup boyz. Because they do the most. Jeez! Don’t even get me started. But let’s forget about them for a second. Today, I want to celebrate the men who simply get it. You know, the ones that their head is correct. We see you quietly doing your thing. This is a thank you letter, and also a “please I need a favor real quick” letter.

Let’s Get Personal – Get To Know Me Tag

Let’s be honest, all of us sitting at home are bored from this COVID-19 lock-down situation. So everyone is out there doing one challenge or the other on social media. I would attempt to do the Savage challenge, you know, the one that goes – “I’m a savage (yeah)… classy, bougie, ratchet” – but there’s nothing ratchet about me – 100% classy l’omo (though I am legit dancing to the song in my head as I type this, and you know you are too 😀 😀 ).

I never thought I’d go on a diet plan. It just sounds like something weird you see on TV, for you know, weirdos. My motto is usually “if it’s not sustainable, then I’ll pass. But after I have tried exercising, reducing my portions, not eating past 6pm, intermittent fasting, drinking 10 tankers or water, and flying to the moon upside down, I finally gave in. Maybe a “diet plan” is what I needed after all to get the flat belly I once had before two kids. So I decided to try 9ja Foodie’s Lose It Nigerian (LIN) Belly Blaster plan. Here’s how it all went –

Even after almost 15 years in the U.S., I still sometimes get home sick. But when I think about the frustration that will slap me in the face as soon as I land at Murtala Mohammed airport, real quick I’m like, issorait, I’m good where I am.

For this post, let’s focus on the 8 things I love so much about naija that make me want to move back.
