I just lurve to partay!!! I love, love, love our Nigerian 'Owambe' parties - dressing up, the gorgeously dressed people, the ambience, food, music you name it, we Nigerians know how to celebrate and we do it with style not minding any austerity measures.

Do I begin by tendering an apology for my absence from my duty post in over a month? I have been AWOL and I hope I will not be court marshalled. Please forgive me.

What's in a name? Would a rose still smell as sweet if it is called by any other name?

Names are very important. They are like identity tags, they are confessional statements telling of hopes of a preferred future, they tell of the depth of parental love and the circumstances surrounding ones birth, for some people, even believe that ones personality or character can be determined from ones name.

In almost all African cultures, much consideration is usually given in naming children.
Many African names carry great meaning. I know that Yoruba names carry great meanings. That's why for the life of me, I can't understand the new trend for misspelling names by young people these days.

Why would someone named Adeoluwa ( The Crown of God), prefer to spell their name as 'Hardayholowar', Ololade is now spelt as 'Hololarday'.
Can someone help me understand the rationale for this absurd attitude. To me, this alternative mode of spelling Yoruba names robs the name of its meaning and very 'razz'. I say 'razz' because in trying to pronounce the the names as they are spelt forces one to emphasize the wrong syllables. When Adeoluwa is spelt as 'Hardayholowar', the vowel sound 'a' is wrongly emphasized by the unnecessary addition of the 'h' sound which is wrong and it encourages what is known as the 'mother tongue influence' in diction.
I hope this fad would pass over quickly. Our Yoruba names are lovely and bestow much grace on the bearer. Misspelling them makes rubbish of that grace.

Indeed the world is a war zone, there is always a fierce battle between the forces of good and evil. There are no demilitarised zones, you are either for good or for evil.

Evil always tries to overcome good. The devil employs a myriad of strategies in trying to conquer humanity but 'we are not ignorant of his devices' - 2Cor 2:11(KJV).

In Ephesians 6:11, we are charged to:
Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. - KJV

Some of the things I read in the news just glides off my mind. I tend to take them as stuff that happen to other people, until someone close to me shares a similar experience.

About a month ago, I read in the papers, a sad story of a successful business woman who was brutally murdered in her home by her young boyfriend, who then ran off with her money and other belongings. The story was so moving that I began to wonder at the price some women pay for love and acceptance.

 Yay people, It is the month of August - our month of Extravagant Praise!!!

Image Credit:
To be honest, when I first heard, in church, that it is our month of Extravagant Praise, my initial reaction was - "huh"? My mind went straight to my 2014 goals and how I've been yet to accomplish much of my set objectives this year.

But guess what?

Hello peeps, hope you are feeling cool but not too cold eh?

There has been so much information going around these days about what to do and what not to do to stay alive. Someone was telling me about an email she received on the dangers of women using soap to wash their privates and while we were discussing, she got two more emails about other health warnings. We then began to list all the don't do this don't do that emails we have received or heard about, I'm telling you it was a pretty long list and if one was to follow every advice life would be pretty miserable indeed.
