The floating stage

floating stageThere has been a recent tussle over who invented the floating stage. Famous rapper, Kanye West is known to use a floating stage at his concerts and as everyone probably knows by now, he recently called out those who according to him, have been stealing his ideas, including the floating stage. In response to this, South African rapper, Casper Nyovest took to twitter to state that contrary to popular belief, he actually did the floating stage thing first, a year before Kanye and so deserves some credit.

Oh well, we love you both Kanye and Casper. At least, we can all agree that the floating stage is one great concept!

Mattifying foundation

classic make up

Have you got an oily face that leaves your t-zone and chin shiny most of the time? A mattifying foundation is what you need because it is oil-free. I changed my foundation a couple of months ago; I started with sleek which my classic make upsweet friend and former flat mate got me, and continued to use it for a while until it got scarce and I had to find an alternative. I tried a few products that just didn’t work for me until one of my besties introduced me to classic.

I’ve always loved liquid foundation so I got the classic mattifying liquid foundation. The results have been impressive so far. It’s got that smooth, rejuvenating feel; also it lasts and doesn’t make me break out. What else can I say? I’m happy with my classic foundation!

Interesting takes on President Buhari’s “…the other room”

Various takes on the president’s statement about “…the other room” while responding to his wife’s interview with BBC Hausa, have been making the rounds;  some intense and some just plain hilarious. Out of the many interesting reactions, I personally find these ones laudable and worth sharing.

"the other room"Pastor Reno Omokri, sharing a photo of him kissing his wife said; “This is me kissing my wife. She belongs by my side. I enter the kitchen to cook for her. She has added value to me.

images-17Hilda Dokubo shared her thoughts in a video saying, “My name is Hilda Dokubo and I am a woman. I do not belong to the kitchen. I go to the kitchen to fix food for my family and myself who eats there sometimes. I don’t belong there. I do not belong to the bedroom either. I sleep there. It is my rest place.
My things are there but I don’t belong there. I do not belong to the sitting room. It is a lounging place. I rest there and I watch television. I do not belong to the other room because I don’t know where the other room is in my house except that this other room sounds like the toilet. I cannot belong to the toilet. I am a woman. I deserve my rights to be a human being.”

ben murray-bruceSenator Ben Murray-Bruce shared a photo with his wife and wrote “This is my beloved wife Evelyn. She belongs by my side because beside (not behind) every great man should be an even greater woman! I love you sweetheart!”.

Where lies Habiba Isa’s fate?

habiba isa

It’s no news that under-aged christian girls are now being abducted, converted and cajoled into marriage in Emirs’ palaces and there isn’t much done about it, I stand to be corrected. The most recent case of 14 year old Habiba Isa who was abducted from her school and taken to the palace of the Emir of Katsina is just another case of injustice and violation of human rights.

I agree with Reno Omokri and others who have cried foul and appealed to the Emir to reconsider his statement describing the incident as irreversible since Habiba willfully converted and gave consent to marriage. She is only 14 for goodness sake, what sort of consent could she possibly give? And what about her parents? Haven’t they the right to even see their precious daughter and ask questions? I must commend Revd. Nelson Ugochukwu of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in katsina for his courage in deciding to confront Habiba’s abductors at the Emir’s palace.

I wonder after hearing about a case like this, if as Christians, it wouldn’t be right to make some harsh pronouncements as Patriarchs of faith like Elijah who called down fire from heaven or Paul who made Elymas blind, did; because, well, we’ve been pushed too far at this point. Do we fold our arms and helplessly watch this misdemeanor? Because apart from being out-rightly wrong, it is unconstitutional.

Christians are known for peace but does it mean we should be taken for granted? Islam as I know also teaches peace, so why don’t we all join hands in putting an end to the illegal abduction of innocent girls and save their loved ones the anguish of losing their daughters without justification? Just my thoughts….

Faith, not deeds


By Alfred Saforo (

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.-Galatians 5:6 NASB.


We are saved by faith, not by deeds. But love for others and for God is the response of those whom GOD has forgiven. GOD’S forgiveness is complete, and JESUS CHRIST said that those who are forgiven much love much.


Because faith expresses itself through love, your love for others is a way to check your faith.

Memory verse

For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.-Luke 7:47 NASB.
