Beyonce’s dreams for her children is what every mother should aspire for

by

In Beyonce’s Vogue September Cover issue, she said

My mother taught me the importance not just of being seen but of seeing myself. As the mother of two girls, it’s important to me that they see themselves too—in books, films, and on runways. It’s important to me that they see themselves as CEOs, as bosses, and that they know they can write the script for their own lives—that they can speak their minds and they have no ceiling. They don’t have to be a certain type or fit into a specific category. They don’t have to be politically correct, as long as they’re authentic, respectful, compassionate, and empathetic. They can explore any religion, fall in love with any race, and love who they want to love.

I want the same things for my son. I want him to know that he can be strong and brave but that he can also be sensitive and kind. I want my son to have a high emotional IQ where he is free to be caring, truthful, and honest. It’s everything a woman wants in a man, and yet we don’t teach it to our boys.

I hope to teach my son not to fall victim to what the internet says he should be or how he should love. I want to create better representations for him so he is allowed to reach his full potential as a man, and to teach him that the real magic he possesses in the world is the power to affirm his own existence.

I’m in a place of gratitude right now.

I am accepting of who I am. I will continue to explore every inch of my soul and every part of my artistry.

I want to learn more, teach more, and live in full.

I’ve worked long and hard to be able to get to a place where I can choose to surround myself with what fulfills and inspires me

She talked about how girls should be able to see themselves and how boys should be raised to be the best man they can be for themselves and for their society. These points are valid points every mother should embrace.

Joro Olumofin Contradicted his Contingency Boyfriend Advice Two Years Ago

by

Two years ago in a blog post titled What is your “Plan B” aka Contingency Plan?,  the self proclaimed Love Doctor who is also an alumnus of University of Lagos wrote

In my Opinion; although a plan B or contingency gives you a relationship insurance which makes a sudden breakup less lethal or detrimental because some people after long relationships don’t find people to date or are even no longer interested in dating I.e emotionally scared. There should be no need for a plan B because it diverts your attention from your primary objective and creates less commitment or devotion. Going into a relationship with a Spare tyre mindset brings extraneous variables and may must times lead to SideChicks/SideGuys. Do what works for you in your own situation and environment.

Fast forward to 2018, this is the advice he now has for young ladies,

The question is what changed?

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

Adesua Etomi Wellington graced the cover of Genevieve Magazine July Edition and she was absolutely stunning.

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.

She also won the Best Actress in A Drama award at the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards for her role in the 2015 romantic drama film Falling.
