o blama!!!!!



The much anticipated US election has come and gone now I can finally rest. I know it was tension bound, nerve wrecking, finger chewing moment, but what ever will be will be. Some people switched channels others just couldn’t be bothered. I wanted to be part of History and watch the event as it unfolded live. I watched, looked and analysed people’s reaction. But I am so happy for Obama o.. YES WE CAN!!!!

Gosh I wish martin king was still alive to witness this , but as the good book says in Habakkuk 2: 3
“for the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie: though it tarry wait for it; because it will surely come and not tarry”.

After Obama won some of the major cities and I saw the margin ,I knew he was in.
I turned in to bed at 3:40am, and then my phone rang at 4:25am telling me Obama won. yay way to go o
Some thing I realised was that the American election was never about color, it was more than that.
When the results were announced, there were tears of joy in Chicago (his home town). People were overwhelmed likes of Rev Jesse Jackson and Oprah were crying tears of joy.
The road may be long for Obama, he may not get there today, tomorrow, or this term ; but he will surely get there. Yes we can!!!

I’m glad I witnessed this in my life time…
Meanwhile, McCain says “we fought hard, the failure isn’t yours , but mine”

It looked like McCain was close to tears?

come to think of it, if hillary clinton had won the primaries and she had been the flag bearer for the democrats? if she had won this election she would have been the first female president and the trend would have been.. BUSH- CLINTON-BUSH- CLINTON. IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE.

but really , what do u think of this?
I am on my way to Chicago to be with the Obama family have lunch, cling champagne glasses. and hope to be in the white house on the 20th of january , God willing. right!!!

i only wish nigerians were more enthusiastic when it comes to our own politics?
and have they declared a public holiday for obama?

I hope McCain isn’t taking it too hard OOO
and finally, there IS a BLACKMAN in the WHITEHOUSE.. HIP ! HIP !! HIP!!! HOORAY. some people are asking for a BLACK QUEEN------ U WISH!!!!


While Obama has made history, and u r reading this and hoping this obama-bin presidentr frenzy dies down, I also have gone to make history

Yes we can!!!
Yes we will!!!
Yes we have!!!
God bless Obama
God bless Me
God bless us all

I watched the channel 4 documentary on Nigerian children wu are branded witches, and I was silently praying and wishing my oyinbo friends will not see it but one did. I watched it and I was shocked. In this age and day people still practice such barbaric acts , gosh, it was depressing but I wanted to watch it to the very end.

Akwa ibom , cross river state was the focal point of the documentary of Nigerian children branded witches , where it was estimated that there were 2.3 million witches there. Which brings me to the question how many non witches are there?

There was a certain pastor who calls himself bishop boasted that he had killed over a hundred witches (souls of innocent children) , and he alleges that he can cure witchcraft with a special concotion of alcohol (African mecury) and his blood……..

gross, mega-gross

this bishop himself looked like someone in serious need of deliverance..
And also with about 400k (if I had that kind of money, that child can continue to be a witch). He could cure a child of witchcraft. But I thought witchcraft was spiritual.? Ignoramuses.!!!!!

I wonder how you define a witch? So when things do not go well for you and with you, the next thing to do Is to term a poor innocent child ?

One little girl had a 3inch nail on her head, another boy was set ablaze by his elder brother….

A certain woman who was widowed recently had to abandon her 2 children a ( 5 yr old and a 6 months old baby) reason , the 5 year old killed the father and has transferred the witchcraft to the baby sister.
So what brought about the whole scenario? it was about a certain preacher woman who obviously all her movies are about witches and has even gone ahead to write a book on how to identify witches. For example, when the child is crying at night and is running a fever….

And the people took a clue from that and started man-handling there children.
It was a depressing documentary that almost made me cry especially the case of the widowed woman whose girls were branded witches. The village took the 6 month old baby back, but refused to accept the other girl a 5yr old for crying out loud.

Is it child abuse or just plain ignorance?
Anyway , I am so glad the cross-river state govt passed a bill about it. Thankfully, some of the kids have re-united with their families, but others asre still being rejected.

im sure u will be wondering why i am writing this. As a versatile babe, i get inspired by God. and perhaps, he wants me to assure u guys...... any way this isnt a church sermon just his faithfullness........

God’s faithfulness!!! Why worry
God told me that before I was conceived he knew me, before i came out of my mother’s womb he sanctified me...

I grew up and was afraid of facing the challenges of this life , He told me not to fear that when i pass thru the waters he will be with me, and thru the rivers it shall not over flow me, when i walk thru fire i shall not be burned. Neither shall the flame kindle upon me.

When i needed comfort, He sent the comforter.
I asked for wealth, He gave me the hidden treasures of the seas and the riches of the gentiles.
When i thought of where the next meal will come from, He told me not to worry that he who feeds the birds would surely feed me.
When i was in need, He said he will supply all my needs according to his RICHES in GLORY..
When i wasn’t sure if i was safe, He said he will keep his angels charge over me, and they shall bear me up in their hands, lest i dash my feet against a stone..
When i was weak and needed strength, He said u shall renew my strength and i shall mount up with wings as the eagles, i run and not be weary and walk and not faint..
If these are his promises to me, why should i worry .......


Sometimes, the power of fear gives us the said determination to succeed. For instance, it’s the fact that u don’t want to be a failure u strife to succeed. FEAR OR DETERMINATION
We all want to achieve the unachievable, be successful in all we set our hearts on and most times step in to the shoes of great men or better still go where they never went....
Fear or determination sets us aside from others. We all have a future but something pushes us to succeed. I guess u can say it’s the determining factor of a success. Whatever drive it is, it pushes us to attain the unattainable. An iota of fear or a dose of determination takes us way above our sap strata.
I guess my motivation gave rise to determination and with a tinny whinny bit of fear has led me where I am now. And just a little nudge I’ll go far above my expectations and way beyond my sap strata. You might come to a point in your life where you think all seems bleak, void and there’s no point. You have come this far to realise that u can move further. Be determined u can make it.
What guides u?
Fear of failing and falling or the sheer determination to succeed,
I have been at cross roads and dead ends where I thought there’s no point ,turn back and forget it. I couldn’t; I have come thus far, why should I turn back. I’m half way towards achieving my goals it will be a wasted two way journey to go back .I analyse ,I weigh it and the distance back is directly proportional to the distance ahead of me .so i move on. I was determined or was it fear of failing?
In our journey we shall meet obstacles after all they say life is not a bed of roses. But u can turn your stumbling blocks into stepping stones and go higher.
Whatever that drives you, just see it, hope it, hold on to it and believe it and it’s yours.
Let it take u where your destiny lies....
Until next time
Still yours still crazy after all these years
