The thing about EXPECTATIONS is that you place them on people you care about. Those very tiny gestures that prop us to walk with our shoulders high and crowns straightened. Those few words that add color to our days and help us sleep better at night. These tiny details make all the difference. I would say “expectations are like volumes of life notes shared to an audience, to look inward and read the volumes with their inner lights.” Continue reading

Obinwanne Okeke is NOT a CRIMINAL, I say this not only because I believe it but because he told me so. I have known Obi for donkey years now and have shared over a crate of beers with him. Exactly 2 years ago, Obi walked into my lounge and after our usual high spirited hug and greetings exchange, he collapsed into silence. Minutes passed then I questioned him and he said:

“Brah, ALL IS VANITY! I have all that should make a man happy, money, cars, toys and girls. I have CEO attached to my name and my company is not some start up. I am FORBES list featured. The clubbing, TED talks, airplanes and trips, it all gets tiring. I am not happy. I crave FREEDOM, I crave peace.” Continue reading

Life is a mystery, and with each day I live, it only gets even more mysterious and complicated.

Growing up a little boy, I knew just a handful of things. I knew I was a boy, I knew I was little (I got to hear ‘cute, fine, small boy’ everyday). I knew dad had money. I knew every Sunday I had to be early to church, and I was always one of the first, because the day before, mum would go through my Sunday box (a box specially set aside to house my church clothes) and iron a set for Sunday, all these so I don’t go late, so I get to hear every word in Sunday school. I knew Jesus died for my sins, I knew he was the son of God, and I knew God was merciful. I knew when someone shouted “Praise the Lord” in the church, we were to reply “Hallelujah”. I knew no matter what, I had to stay till church closed. In all I knew I was an Assemblies of God member, and as far as I was concerned that was what knowing God was all about. Continue reading

“Readjust your gaze”

Earthquakes, land slides, hurricanes, storms, wars, genocides, plane crash, road accidents, poverty, sickness, pain, unemployment, insanity, betrayal, sufferings, imprisonment, helplessness, death, hatred… Has plagued man since as long as we can think of and earlier than our memory has in record. We live in an imperfect world where trials and challenges abound. Mothers watch kids die and they can do nothing to get them back to life. The more we pray for the ills that we see to come to a stop the more innovative evil gets and we wonder, “what went wrong? ” Continue reading

These seven reasons show why you should stand by your decision to not engage in Ponzi schemes

Promise of big money consistently with little work:

Entrepreneurs know that there are of course things that you can do to make money without having to work all that hard. But, it’s just not possible for everyone who joins a business to be able to make so much return without working. Making money takes work. Entrepreneurs also know that NO business on earth can consistently provide such returns. Businesses have ups and downs simple. Continue reading

The emboldened letters above form my reply to the much publicized “I’d rather be self made” campaign. It is becoming sickening the way entrepreneurs talk about “having a job”. If I should key into the trend of the 21st century, people with jobs are being “job-shamed” by the entrepreneur elites…Every corner there is someone bashing a 9-5, someone referencing Steve Jobs, Zuckerberg, Davido, Ikeji etc…I know they mean well, trying to inspire the young to break out of the chains convention has bound them with, get them to think outside the box…Quick questions though “Do you have to be so bashful about salary earning?” “Must you drive a desk job fellow to the famous suicidal bridge before you motivate others?” “Are you at all concerned that you are giving a very powerful sermon to a congregation full of unformed, unrefined and un-mentored minds?” Minds that lack in understanding as well as in wisdom…Minds that swallow all you say and fail to process thoughts accordingly, blindly following the “self-made” train… Continue reading

Why People Leave the Catholic Church

The Priest:  It’s either they let any willing billy enter the seminary or they don’t train them enough. Rule number one “A priest should never ever be a bore, never ever.”

Someone trained for years in philosophy should come out refined and should awe the crowd with each word that comes out his mouth. A priest must be pious, have charisma and most importantly have a sense of humor with an ability to connect dots. You are going to be talking to people the rest of your life; you must be good at it or be trained to be good at it. You can’t spend years studying good books, listening to old geniuses and bishops, touring cities on apostolic work and still turn out a pious, uncharismatic bore.

Catholic priests these days lack the essential qualities of a priest. Some are too lazy to put their back into the work, they come to mass to recite the same homily we have heard from CRK, catechism and other homilies. The effect- most people are sleeping through mass. I know a priest who puts his back into it and I site him as an example. Father John prepares notes for his homily prior to the mass. He reads, meditates and digests the word of God, allowing the Holy Spirit to guide his thoughts so he knows how best to convey the message to his flock. He links the readings to family, duty, politics-everyday life. The sweet priest links the homily to last night’s show on African Magic. That’s connecting… Continue reading

Jesus Christ Did Not Leave The Comfort Of The Heavens To Come Die For Our Sins…Yep I said it…Believing that he did is an insult to God’s status as Almighty…What you are effectively saying and believing is that God is accountable to some force in the universe. His creatures have sinned and this force needs retribution and therefore blood must be paid. This force would accept no other blood than the blood of his most precious (Re: Kanayo O. Kanayo ritualist movies). It makes my belly turn to think that this force God owes is the devil, can’t be, right? God doesn’t owe anybody anything…He is God, the Almighty…Even if we all pooped in the Atlantic, God would still have no one to answer to or pay by blood to… Continue reading
