You know that feeling,when you get a rush of ideas and thoughts that kind of attempts to convince you ,you can "conquer the world"?Yeah!That's pretty much what I've had to handle lately.
With the recurrent crises back home, the bad news just keeps coming and it doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon. Please pardon my pessimism, but am I actually the only one who feels this way?
We've got a clueless leadership, a bunch of corrupt-ridden losers and some greedy old fools; who don't give a hoot about the image they portray us to be-another 'terrorised underdeveloped African country'...
Inspite of all that's happened, I can't turn my back on my homeland. It just wouldn't work for me. I have no statistics of how many "diasporans" feel the way I do. But there's something in me that  wouldn't just give up on my birthland. perhaps, that's the reason..."It's my birth land". The place where my father met a woman from another part of Africa, who naturalised as a Nigerian, born by parents of diversed nationals, and I came to being through them. I've got the blood of three different African  nationals flowing in my veins and I am proud of that. Some may say it's easier to 'sweet talk' from a distance, but I beg to differ. We all feel what we feel for different reasons and I have a strong inclination the feelings wouldn't change, whether I am in Europe or the United States. There was a time I thought stepping on the soil of America was my "ultimate" aspiration. Somehow, I still have a fantasy I hope to fulfill...stepping on the soil of United States for real, but I don't think my life would be less meaningful if I don't...I may have fantasised a lot as a young child, and still on a discovery journey in life, but I know better now, and certainly know that, one of the greatest losses of life is to forget or be detached from your heritage,to be in denial of your roots, without history, it's a complete loss of identity...Why on earth would I want to deny "who I truly am"? Am I kidding anyone besides myself...Am black, naturalisation won't change that...vitiligo can try but wouldn't even succeed...

Iv'e got 8mins before mid-night and want this post to make June 30th....(to be continued)!!!

Homeland crises...

I shouldn’t have to struggle to put down the words, I was almost blank for a second there. The thoughts of our homecountry weighed heavily on my mind and I just couldn’t help but make a personal supplication for God to see us through. It isn’t just about the fuel price inflation, but so many ills inherent in the system. Don’t get me wrong, am not preaching for Shari’ah as a legal system, but at least a fair governance of the acclaimed ‘Democracy’ we say we’ve got. So much for government of the people by the people and for the people”! It is so sad to see that people can be so obsessed with power, money and authority, forgetting where they are coming from. I mean these politicians are just ordinary humans like you and I, who have been privileged to attain their status, fairly or by fraud. The question is, how can they close their eyes to the sufferings of the people? Are they also not humans who one day would be swallowed by earth, irrespective of wealth or status? Others have gone and …

The che@ting spouse...

The subject of infidelity in marriage is as inexhaustible as your mind can travel .It is something that those who have been hurt and emotionally damaged from its consequence which they understood. Attempts are made to correct this anomally , that has become second to nature.As a matter of fact, it has been concluded that,because men are “polygamous by nature,there can be no man content with a single woman. Ironically or should I say paradoxically however,this submission has every inch of hypocrite in it. Why?Because they would rather a man keeps a side kick,than actually do the lawful thing of taking another wife, or 3 or 4 as our own faith has permitted.
Cheating happens for various reasons, could be emotional,physical ,you’d be surprised-mental and so on. Also,either of the spouses can cheat. What is prevalence (without statistics reference now),is men being most likely to cheat. The major difference however is that, women are more likely to cheat for emotional reasons than men are.…
