WHO officially declares Nigeria Ebola free


In case you missed it, it is important that everyone hears that Nigeria has been officially declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization. It was announced yesterday in a press conference by the World Health Organization and the Federal Ministry of Health. If you carried the news of the outbreak, it is extremely important that you tell this part too, so no one would claim they missed it.

I read somewhere how students from Nigeria were denied admission to a University last month. According to the letter from the University posted by one of the students online, their admissions were reviewed because they were from "an Ebola prone region". Such discrimination is quite baffling, especially when everyone knows the last suspected case in Nigeria was as far back as August. It was so funny because this school is actually in America, where there are still confirmed cases of Ebola. The irony!

Inspiring you! Don't stop striving

Hey Lovelies



I like to share the stories that sum up my life with people, not because it is perfect, but because it is relatable. I discovered a long time ago in a very interesting way that everyone of us is going through one struggle or the other and though the struggles may be different, at the end of the day the solutions are pretty much laid down on some basic principles. I remember one time when someone confided in me and started sharing her struggles with me. I am very bad at sympathizing with people.  If I dare tune into my emotional side, I will just start crying. I can cry more than the bereaved, you have no clue.

You do not know what women or men want!

Hey Lovelies



I recently read a list of "What a good guy wants?" posted by a man on Facebook and all that came to my mind was "seriously, who made you the judge of that?"

Inspiring you! Plan ahead

Hey lovelies 
As I was imagining the things Linda Ikeji had to deal with last week, I realized that most of them would have been avoided if she had tried to make an attempt to deal with them on time. 
I wrote about the misfortune that befell Linda Ikeji's blog last week here



When I started blogging, I did not know a lot about the different types of blogging.
I mentioned that I just started this blog, put out a post where I ranted so much and later tweaked it to something that was supposed to be inspiring and shared it.

Keeping things legal (Blogging, Vlogging, Filmmaking, Brands...)

Hey Lovelies
I know most of you heard what happened to Linda Ikeji, a popular blogger in Nigeria. In a brief summary, her blog was shut down due to copyright infringement. I noticed a lot of people that were talking about her were making the same mistakes she made, but the point is, they do not even understand why it could be a problem. 




It is only happening to Linda Ikeji because she is that big. A lot of people that are raving about her would be dealing with even more if they were relevant. I just realized that it is not only bloggers, but for some reasons, we do not pay a lot of attention to the law in Nigeria, thus, end up taking a lot of things for granted. Even our filmmakers make the mistake Linda made.
The problem becomes apparent sooner than later when you have something that goes beyond our laid back society. A lot of things that we fail to pay attention to are big issues in other places. Invading someone else's intellectual property without proper consent is just as big as invading a landed property.

NIGERIA , the new 'model' for dealing with Ebola outbreaks

Hey Lovelies
I was so excited when I read official reports from a few international organizations a couple of days  ago including CDC that Nigeria had successfully contained Ebola.


I did not want to immediately publish the news after the reports just incase there was someone that was not properly monitored :)

Inspiring you! What's in it for tomorrow?

Hey Lovelies
The other day I was just thinking about all the things I wrote on my list to accomplish and at some point I felt like it was back to back and there was no time to even take a good break. 




Truth is, I just found those opportunities and I knew it would do me a lot of good in future. In as much as I know my body would do with a well deserved rest, I kept analyzing my thoughts and those gave birth to this post.
