Hello Laila, please share this on your blog. Forgive me, but this is a rant.
I live in Canada with my family and recently, my husbands relative was granted a study visa. Prior to him getting this visa, we all prayed for him and supported him financially as he was having a rough time in Nigeria. He graduated 7 years ago and hadn't been able to secure a job. He had been praying, fasting and finally God did it.
Anyway, we agreed to accommodate him for free, to lend a helping hand, but since he has been living with us, it appears that I have misjudged him.
I have noticed that some people only know how to pray for breakthroughs and to

The weather was cloudy, and it soon started raining. Everybody including commuters who were

Hello Laila, I'm a reader of your blog for some years now. Please I need the help of the house.....

Jidenna has entered wahala! What are your thoughts about his controversial statement that light skinned people are more likely to be kidnapped in Nigeria than dark skinned people because they are seen as more valuable. The Nigerian American singer, full name Jidenna Theodore Mobisson revealed in a VLad interview that he had to protect himself during his father's burial in Nigeria by bringing in a lot of AK47s and employed military commandos.
Nigerians are currently roasting him on his own Instagram page. They have also changed his name from Jidenna to Jideewu. Totally serves him right. lol.
The video which adopts many of the same style-points as the hundreds of barbaric videos released by ISIS over the last year is ten minute-long and begins with what appears to be an intense firefight against Nigerian soldiers.
It then shows them standing proudly next to the corpses of scorched Nigerian troops - and showing off their security badges to the camera. The video ends with the senseless murder of a captured African Union soldier. With a look of true horror on his face, the man kneels in front of three masked Boko Haram fanatics - two of whom point AK47s at his head.
The video then cuts to reveal his decapitated body lying motionless on the floor. See the horrifying photos plus watch the video after the cut. WARNING: It is very, very graphic.
It came as a rude shock to pop singer, Dencia, when she realised that the lady she had always referred to as her sister is actually her mother. In a chat with Saturday Beats, the fair skinned singer said that she went into a state of severe depression when she found out.
Years later, she has been able to come to terms with the reality of her birth and has fought the depression. She said that everything is fine in her family but nobody seems to want to tell her the story of her birth.
“I went into depression; it was a severe case of depression. It was a very hard and trying period for me but I am glad that I was able to get out of it and get my life back together. My depression was not because of what the media said about me, it was more of a family
How do you wake up one morning and realize you were destined to be of all things - a robber?
For two teenagers, Sani Harry and Muhammed Yahaya, who were nabbed by the Kwara State Command of the Nigerian Police Force for allegedly robbing people with a cutlass, becoming robbers was something they had no power to resist.
The suspects, who claimed to be herdsmen and farmers, however, were remorseful enough to warn other youth like themselves to steer clear of robbery and other crimes.
According to 17-year-old Harry, he was destined to be a robber as he could not resist the temptation.
“It is destiny that made me to start robbing people. The temptation just came in a strong way. I just did it without knowing why I did it. I have never killed anybody. We
