What you should know about Margaret Idahosa, Africa’s first female Archbishop

by

You cannot write the history of pentecostalism in Africa without mentioning the name Idahosa. Today the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa is a household name, he was a charistmatic preacher and founder of Church of God Mission International. After he died in 1998, his wife the iconic Margaret Idahosa continued his legacy.

On Sunday, she celebrated her 75th birthday and it was fanfare. Idahosa is not just Africa’s first female archbishop, she is also the Chancellor of Benson Idahosa University.

She was inducted into the ministry on 24 May 1983 and became a Bishop on 5 April 1998. She is also a writer with many books under her name.

She has openly admitted that she is fulfilled because she is doing what God ased her to do and her children are in the ministry.

Idahosa has four biological children and three adopted children. At 75, she still remains strong and healthy.

 

 

Falz “Child of The World” is a powerful masterpiece

by

In 309 seconds, Falz delivered a powerful masterpiece. He passed along three important messages that young girls across Africa need to learn.

Featuring popular actress Toyin Abraham and Bamike Olawunmi, Child of the World is absolutely genius.

Shola’s story is a reflection of our present society’s decadence and the victims of realities that are beyond their control.

Shola’s intention was not to become an aristo girl, she just wanted to make some money and support her mum. Uncle Peter took advantage of her and that opened up an untamable beast and this led to several abortions and eventually HIV.

In a bid to find the easy way out, Shola almost killed herself but she found the courage to tell the world her story and share lessons she paid a huge price to learn.

The first time I listened to the song, I argued that it is not realistic because I know many aristo girls that are happily married and their husbands know nothing about their past.

They drive the biggest cars, married the richest guys, live a good life and from the outside, there are absolutely no consequences.

But hey, it is not the same narrative. Some are not so lucky, some lose their lives in the process, some suffer from infertility because of a botched abortion they did a few years back. It is all about the narrative and Shola’s story is a striking example of the consequences of things going wrong.

Her father left, her mum raised her to be a trophy daughter and one day changed her life, from then on she made a choice that almost cost her soul then she found the courage to tell her story.

This masterpiece that could have only come from Falz the Bahd guy himself teaches us three lessons which are rolled at the end of the video.

Rape is a wicked act and should never be condoned, the victim is never at fault

HIV/AIDS is not a death sentence

Suicide is never the answer, let your situation make you better, not bitter

I really loved the cover of the digital edition.

In an Instagram post, the magazine wrote The life of an actor is very unpredictable. One moment you are riding high on the frequency of acting jobs that you are booking, the next you’re two full months into a drought – no auditions, no booked roles. It lifts you up and can very quickly humble you. But what if you’re just consistently booking increasingly significant roles?
In this issue our Cover Girl @adesuaetomi, shares her thoughts on married life, space
travel and so much more!

Adesua Etomi is a Nihgerian actress. She starred in her first feature film Knocking On Heaven’s Door.

Kylie Jenner covers Forbes August Edition

by

Kylie Jenner is well on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, ahead of even Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23.

She built a $900 million fortune in less than 3 years. This Self Made Woman is gracing Forbes August edition.

The magazine wrote “Just 20 when this story publishes (she’ll turn 21 in August) and an extremely young mother (she had baby daughter Stormi in February), Jenner runs one of the hottest makeup companies ever. Kylie Cosmetics launched two years ago with a $29 “lip kit” consisting of a matching set of lipstick and lip liner, and has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330 million in 2017.

Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at nearly $800 million. Jenner owns 100% of it.”
