Dear Nigerian Doctor

Hey lovelies
It's been over 3 weeks now since doctors in Nigeria embarked on a strike and to attempt to say how saddening this is, would be me searching endlessly for these words that can capture my true feelings. I was reading about the current NMA strike in Nigeria and my mind could not help putting together the implications. 

                                                            
I have a lot of doctors working in Nigeria in my networks, hence I was opportuned to read some of their comments that got me really disturbed. When I tried to read some of  the ones from the nurses, the issues really stood out. The worst part is the fact that some of the demands by both parties (NMA and JOHESU) have a lot of discrepancies that have continued (and will continue) to cause conflicts of interests. However, I noticed this huge gap that needed to be bridged and I decided to put this piece together.

This is what is wrong #jadapose

Hey lovelies
Everyday I wonder what would be left of this world soon. People just wake up everyday and prove to me that it can only get worse and worse. People just find ways to be outright inhumane. Where did we miss it please? 


My rant this morning is due to this story of a 12 year old girl that was drugged and raped by her friend at the said friend's house party. Now that is not the saddest part. The friend filmed the whole process, took pictures and put them all over the web. Guess what stupid teenagers and of course, adults did? 
You will be so surprised.

14 for 14 challenge: Half way through!

Hey lovelies
As most of you know, at the beginning of this year, I and 3 other bloggers embarked on a journey to keep blogsville relevant with quality posts every month throughout the course of the year. The inspiration was borne out of a need to fill the gap for the dwindling exciting vibe that kept blogsville going on a while back. It was so interesting and disheartening to see that so many bloggers lacked the motivation to blog and would abandon their blogs for months leaving their dedicated readers trying to decipher if all was really well with them. Most of the bloggers that stayed were more driven to finding their motivation by commercializing their blogs while losing the personal essence that drew most of us to them.

Style my way: Bright and Colored

Hey lovelies
We have been waiting for a while now for the sun. It's been very irregular.
Sometimes, it comes, sometimes it is so far fetched, literally like the phrase itself.
This British weather is so unreliable.

When Jesus says yes

Hey lovelies
It is Sunday and I am just in the mood to start a church around here :)
Happy Sunday btw!

The title of the post should give you a clue of what this is about, also of course, if you have been following Michelle Williams, one part of the trio of Destiny's child popular pop group or any of the other members actually. Well, if you haven't, I'll you let in on the deets.

She released a new song inspired by the popular Nigerian praise song "When Jesus says yes..." and caused an uproar. Some people were happy that she brought her group members to have something a lot of people prefer to describe as a great reunion, others are going on about how she has resorted to recycling songs, some think she goofed by doing something of that genre, some think her other group members did better even though they were only featured, I just think it is a great song and I want y'all to get up and shake it up for God today. Kelly slayed it tho. There is just something uniquely beautiful about her voice.
Meanwhile, didn't Beyonce take her roots from the church? She has no clue on how to dress for church LOL

Ok guys, let me stop and let y'all enjoy it



Enjoy the rest of your day
And have a great week ahead

Love always

The unexplained paradox


Hey lovelies
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend
Told y'all I'll be back soon :)



I was just hopping around some news' sites and I noticed that it was the elections' season again and the one characteristic feature is people lining up for one gift or the other from a politician.

...and more protests in Nigeria

Hey lovelies
A few days back, on Thursday precisely, students of the Lagos State University decided to embark on a protest.
This protest was just too funny.
They went to the Lagos State Government house to stage the protest and lived there basically.
They started a fire and cooked there, the Muslims had their prayer sessions there as well, it was remaining for them to shower, make tents and sleep there, I reckon LOL
