Don't Compare Your Load To Another Person's, We Are All Humans, But There Are Super Humans - AliBaba

Don't compare your load to another person's. What you pay for a 2 bedroom in Bayelsa can not be the same with what is paid for a Mini flat in Banana Island. People are different. With commensurate load as applicable to where they find themselves. It's not everyone who can live at your level. The person who has a PhD can not be compared to the person with a school certificate. 

The problem we have in life is when we stretch the "We are all equal too far". We are all humans. But there are super humans. I can not play the piano. That is a skill. Perfecting it requires time. Why is someone more blessed than me?... may not totally be the right question. What do I need to be blessed like that person may be the way to go. So on Sunday last week someone sent me a message asking why I have not replied a chat. I then took time to explain to the person that his chat must have been tucked away inside my many WhatsApp messages. He yimu'ed.

I Got Married, Had A Child At The Perfect Time – Stephanie Okereke-Linus

Popular actress, Stephanie Okereke-Linus, is in the limelight but she is rarely in the public glare. This is because she has perfected the art of keeping her private life away from the radar of the media.

However, in a recent exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop, Okereke-Linus let down her guard a little and spoke about her marital experience. She said, “Marriage has been very good to me and it has been a wonderful experience all the way. I am happy that I am with someone I love and we are both excited to be sharing the rest of our lives with each other. I have no regrets about getting married at the time I did as I believe that God’s time is the best.”

On the notion that she delayed before giving birth, she said, “Like I have stated before, it was a personal decision between me and my husband. I do not work with anybody else’s time. So far I know what is good for me, I will go for it.”

Shedding more light on her personality, the actress said, “I have always loved acting and I was fortunate enough to discover my gift at an early age. I am also a filmmaker and I am determined to correct some of the societal ills of the country through my projects. I also love travelling and broadening my horizon.”

I Have Fibroids, Not Cancer – Halima Abubakar

Contrary to news making the rounds that actress, Halima Abubakar has been diagnosed with cancer, her Ghanaian manager, Anah Abi, has said the actress is battling with complications from a fibroid removal surgery she had sometime ago.

In an exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop, she said, “Halima has shared a lot about what’s happening to her before in the past, so it is just natural for her to share this as well. She’s never scared to share anything that she’s going through. We thank God that she’s responding to treatment though she’s still weak but she has a lot of wonderful people around her. She would be having her next surgery in two weeks so for now, she has to rest. The information going round that she has cancer is totally false. 

She already said it herself that it is fibroid. She has also thanked the Kogi State First Lady who has been very kind to her. She had complications from the initial fibroids operation that she had. We are grateful because a lot of people prayed for her and I believe that’s the essence of the post Tonto Dikeh made. Aside medicine, she needs prayers too.”

'Religion Is Insensitive, Wicked And Dangerous. Yet, Religion Preaches Love. Such Hypocrisy' - Eucharia Anunobi Comes For Pastors

You Are Free To Block Me After This Post... This thing of sending an assistant pastor to start a new branch WITHOUT any financial assistance, asking them to go and 'prove' their ministry looks like wickedness in religious robe. 

Did you consider that those pastors have families who depend on them? Whose ministry are they even proving? Theirs or yours? Definitely not theirs because this church is your ministry, not theirs? If they were going out to start their own ministry, then we can tell them to go and prove their ministry. Even though we should actually assist them too But this time sir, it is your ministry, your responsibility, your vision and you should also be part of the provision. Let's be real and truthful to ourselves. Let our conscience judge this thing.

You won't give them $1 but you will expect tithe from them in a matter of months. Sir, that's not good nah. Even unbelievers won't open a branch of their business without equipping the shop for their manager. Religious people will come here to say "The kingdom operates with kingdom principles, don't bring in corporate principles here". Religion is insensitive, wicked and dangerous. Yet, religion preaches love. Such hypocrisy.

Ladies, If You See A Guy You Like Send A DM, It Doesn't Mean You're Desperate Or Abnormal - Adejoro Olumofin

Ladies, If you see a guy you like send a DM. It doesn't mean you're thirsty it just means you're Confident & Audacious. This goes against our African Customs, Culture and Cognition ; how things were done in our Parents time where the Man has to be the one to reach out to the Woman and court her but we're in advanced times, things & times have changed so I believe a different and bolder approach may occasionally work. Ladies if you see a guy you like that meets all the requirements you want in a Man there's nothing wrong in reaching out to him or making him know that you're fond of him directly or indirectly.. 

It is how it's done that matters ; you can send your TRUSTED friend or Family member to him, you can approach him directly, you can send him a DM, tweet at him.. All these things are not wrong, it doesn't make you less of a Lady, desperate or abnormal. The word THIRSTY has put a lot of us in a cage both guys and girls, we're scared of our friends, family, society calling us Thirsty so we hold back on our Emotions and "Id".. I think the word thirsty should be used when a guy or girl reaches out to someone continuously & Desperately after the person has said he or she isn't interested numerous times..
