By Mical Imbukwa If today was my last, would you play me my happy song? Would you hold me close and guide my feeble feet to tunes of the drums? Would you handle the weight of the happy emotions that will pour out of my diminishing soul? The happy emotions that will be triggered by [...]

So as a young person, don’t ever think that you are too small to earn more. In case you want to give your skills away for free, just ensure that you are volunteering in an organization that you dream to work in. And even as you volunteer, do it as though you are being paid. Before you know it, your skills will be recognized and who knows, that is how you will get your dream job. Intern in one or two organizations, but otherwise, don’t do anything for free. Know what you stand for and stick to it. That is how you will earn respect with everybody including employers. But again, if you want to shoot yourself in the foot, it is your choice!
What is life without God? With God, all impossibilities become possible. Pray, pray, pray until something happens. Mr. Ofunja recognizes this fact and encouraged the students to cast all their burdens to God insisting that, however hard you work, if God is not in the picture, it is vain. God will enable you to climb those mountains brought your way in form of enemies. He will give you the courage to look fear in the eyes and say, “look here fear. You got nothing on me!” He also reminded them that even as they focus on God, they should give up procrastination and all time wasters. That with commitment, they will achieve their ultimate goal which is success in their exams.

Such statements and more are what kids grow up hearing from the people they adore. If you observe such kids in school they [...]
Somewhere today, a woman is sad. She is heartbroken. She is depressed. Her self esteem and confidence is almost completely gone. She cries every night and the reason for this is a fellow woman. A fellow woman who tore her down before others just to make her look stupid and small. A fellow woman who [...]
You won’t believe this. Lucy did not have any disease and neither was he bewitched. Those who believe in witchcraft will tell you that when someone is bewitched, their bodies experience pain but no doctor, not even the expert ones are able to place a name to the illness. Sounds like Lucy’s case but no, Lucy was not bewitched. The villain was found in her stomach when she was slaughtered. A polythene bag!
She works hard in the home, takes everybody's pain as her own, conceals the nakedness of her husband from the public, deals with crazy in-laws but still to society she is considered a weaker sex. Just because men fix bulbs in the home, handle electronics and lift heavy weights they are considered strong. But is strength only recognized in masculinity? A woman bears so much more but she does not complain.
By Mical ImbuKwa In a world full of different unfortunate situations, people have to devise mechanisms to sail through. Some sail through wisely, others ruin their reputations while at it, while there are those who lack the boldness to get out of these situations. Their life therefore stagnates while they are locked in frustrations and [...]
So now the verdict is out. Mr. Handsome will stay behind bars for a very long time. Not only for the accident, but for being a male version of a “Slay Queen” as the judge puts it. Mr. Handsome is most definitely Yahaya’s twin. A woman eater without any ounce of shame. Who gave him the audacity to defy God’s command that a man is a provider to his household? If he can’t provide, how then will he be the head of his household? And if he can’t be the head of his household, how then will he offer protection over it?
