​WHY MEN ARE CALLED “GROOM”, AND THE WOMAN “THE BRIDE” ON WEDDING DAY? 

Why is the newly wedded man called groom and the woman called bride? 

A friend of mine got tired of his wife just about six months after wedding. He complained bitterly to me about her and told me that he has concluded to break up with her; he went on to say that he was sure that he made a mistake. 

I did not respond immediately because I knew I must tell him that right thing, so I went home. And that is what birth this message. 

Many men have broken up with their wives because they end up not being the wife that they have dreamt of. But they have forgotten that on their wedding day was when the man was commissioned for the new task.

Nobody calls the woman wife on her wedding day but bride, because it is the man that will groom his bride to become the wife.

That is why the man is called ‘bridegroom or groom’ and the word grooming has to do with patiently nurturing, teaching, tending and helping someone to become what he or she should be. 

It is therefore believed that a man that takes a woman to the altar of marriage is matured enough to patiently groom his bride to become the wife. The man is not supposed to just expect the bride to automatically become the wife, she must be groomed. 

It is clear that many of us men have unnecessary expectations when we were getting married, we want some magic to happen to our wives, we want them to become what we have had in mind about who we want our wives to be; not considering the fact that the woman does not know what is on your mind except you teach her.

Our expectations are often too unrealistic, because we don’t remember that change takes time and we can only expect something from someone that knows what we want. 

So before you think of breaking up, have you groomed her? Have you given her time to understand you? Hope you realize that a turtle will never become a hawk? God often brings people that are opposites of each other together in marriage so that they can help each other in their place of weaknesses. 
If your wife is weak where you are weak, then where will you get the strength that is needed? The problem with many of us is that we don’t accept people before attempting to change them. Of course, our wives are not from our backgrounds, so it will take time for them to adjust. 

Stop trying to change her, accept her, love her, teach her and be patient with her; that is what grooming is all about. She is going to be your wife but she is your bride now, so groom her. Stop complaining about her, she may be a turtle and you a hawk, she cannot fly so be patient with her. 

I don’t believe that your marriage can’t work, be patient and allow God to help you.

Jesus saves Bro 

Jesus saves is a poem that illustrates the dept of our DARKNESS and the POWER OF light, in him that has giving us worthyness in living. Jesus saves makes us understand the level at which the end is nigh* but embellishes all doubt of our survival, our life is sure “if” and only “if” we abide by him who loves us genuinely!

Over the realm of Darkness he sufficed 

Above countless principalities and demons that breathe the fires of hell and Overcoming the minions that abhors the night,

the reckless spirited energy which breathes fear and grounds evil,

Words of mouth reigns supreme over words of silence 

But one who triumph over both “action”!!

“Fear not for I am with you”

Distinguished between powers,

Exulted among gods,

Worshipped above lords,

Within thy bossoms “life” withing thy  embowelment “death” 

Conceived in the heart of the night, the thickest of evils and the strays of demons, 

sin cast’s its elastic wings of dissit and tempt on the embodiments of Earth

Children, the quakes are here, the gates are open, and the demons that feed the fires of hell are let loose,

“The feast have begun” 

Pick a side now all yea that worketh inequity 

For the end is at thy wrist approaching, 

Cast out all illicit works, for no sin is another greater than, 

Jesus is reaching out right now!

The one whose name is as a strong tower,

he is and will always be the way through!!! 
                                             Mahdheebah…

Earth Angels

Searching through the page “POWER OF POSITIVITY” I got glued to some amazing writups on “Earth Angels” and found the answers I’ve been looking for, stay reading, you might find this quite reveling and interesting.

   I have found myself surrounded by different kinds of people but some just seem too outstanding, outstanding in this context talks about how nice, caring, selfless and utterly unrestricting to the extent they can go for somebody else. I mean, I know anybody could be these things but for these people its seems as though that’s the sole purpose they’re here on earth, ive got about two friends like that and I’ve been searching for explanations as to why they’re that way. Some of you probably thinking “oh common anybody could be nice and caring and selfless” yes I totally agree, fact, I’m nice too but there is an extent to which it gets, take for example, you help a stranded person out of they situation, and you do it again, and again and again, the more you do it the less you get appreciated, it becomes a frequent occurrence, then you begin to feel like you’re being taking for granted, then you start to retrench because you don’t want nobody to take your niceness for stupidity right? That’s right! Its human nature to act that way. However, some people are on another level entirely, they don’t care what you do to them, they’ll keep helping and serving. I got glued to some amazing writups on “Power of Positivity” and found the answers I’ve been looking for, stay reading, you might find this quite reveling and interesting.

​   You might know these types of people by a couple different names – either “lightworkers”, “Earth Angels”, or something similar. Maybe you even feel like one of these special people yourself. Lightworkers literally have come here to spread and share their light as much as possible, and bring about positive change to this planet. They have no patience for hate, intolerance, violence, or oppression; these types just want everyone to live in harmony and move on from our current problems on Earth.
Lightworkers don’t resonate with much in the modern world; often, they feel like old souls who have come here once again to restore and renew the planet. They relate to the way the world worked when we lived off the land, in harmony with each other, the animals, and nature. While they know that we probably won’t ever go back to that way of living, earth angels simply want us to live in peace with our world now. They want abundance, laughter, happiness, and joy for all, and are some of the most selfless people you will ever meet.
Earth angels want to align with pure, loving energy, and by doing so, help others to find their highest self in this lifetime. They want to transcend the problems and heartache, and live in true harmony with the Divine. They have good intentions for themselves and the planet, but often get frustrated with our current state of affairs.
If you feel like you might be an earth angel, but aren’t sure, read on to bring more clarity into your role on this planet.

    The amazing thing now however is that you might actually be an earth angel or have an Earth Angel friend and not even know it, not to worry, beneath are  six signs, attributes and lifestyle of an earth angel.

1. YOU’RE HIGHLY SENSITIVE.

   Earth angels have obviously come here for a grand purpose, but saving the planet comes at a hefty cost. Sometimes, the Earth angel will feel overwhelmed by all the problems in the world, and feel as though they can’t ever come close to making a difference. The Earth angel can get quite frustrated and tired of things on this Earth, and feel desperate for change. They don’t enjoy being around big crowds and loud people, as the conflicting energy can make them frazzled and anxious.
Earth angels also have high sensitivity to violence, hatred, and basically anything portrayed as negative by the media and news outlets. They tend to hide away in the comfort of their rooms much of the time, as a way to protect themselves from the hectic, overstimulating outside world.
If this sounds like you, then you might just be an Earth angel.

2. YOU LOVE ALONE TIME.

Yes, everybody loves some alone time but the lightworker, or Earth angel, loves spending time in solitude to recharge and rebalance their energies. Like i said in the first paragraph – these types of people get overwhelmed frequently by the world today, and use their time alone to heal and prepare themselves for the next encounter with the outside world. They enjoy really digging deep into their psyche and healing parts of themselves that have been broken. Earth angels know that in order to change the world, they must change themselves, and work tirelessly to become the best version of themselves.


3. YOU CARE DEEPLY FOR OTHERS.

  Do you feel genuinely empathetic towards others, and want to help them through their problems? If so, you could be an Earth angel. These people would drop everything to help someone in need, as they have suffered themselves and don’t want to see anyone else hurting. Lightworkers feel deeply connected to their fellow humans, and just want to provide solace to anyone who needs it. Earth angels understand how difficult and scary the world can seem at times, as we live in uncertainty almost constantly. Who knows what tomorrow may bring, but lightworkers know that they can make positive change today.
They live in the now, and want to make as much positive change for others as possible. Earth angels can relate to other people’s struggles, as they have likely been there before.

4. YOU FEEL CALLED TO A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

 You don’t relate to worldly desires and the structured path. You don’t like the programmed, conditioned society we live in, and have never felt compelled to follow in other people’s footsteps. You want to make your own mark and live by your own rules, and don’t like people telling you what to do. You feel called to do something more than what people consider “normal,” and couldn’t dream of living life being unfulfilled. Earth angels may feel a strong pull to do something in the field of humanitarianism, such as being a social worker, counselor, pastors, acupuncturist, or massage therapist. They see themselves as healers, and want jobs in fields where they can live out their passions.
You may even want to start your own business so you can free yourself of the structure and routine that comes along with having a normal job.

5. YOU HAVE A STRONG INTUITION.

  You probably don’t live life through the lens of logic, instead choosing to make decisions based on your emotions and intuition. Earth angels feel more deeply than others, and don’t really resonate with our extremely right-brained way of living in today’s society. You connect with things that appeal to emotions, such as art, music, sharing stories, and connecting with others in a meaningful way. You allow your intuition to guide you in life, helping you to figure out each new step you take.

  Earth angels trust that inner voice telling them what to do, as they know that the messages they receive have come from the Divine. They trust the universe to bring positive things and people into their lives, and know that intuition is the medium by which it speaks to them. They call on their spirit guides and angels for frequent assistance, and probably follow some sort of spiritual practice.


6. YOU REJECT MOST “MODERN IDEALS.”

Most lightworkers and Earth angels can’t understand the world today. Why do we spend so much time working jobs we hate to afford things we don’t need? Why do jobs exist in the first place? Why do we continue to pollute our home and treat it like garbage, when it’s the only place we have to live? Why do we consume so much and give so little? Why do we have wars and racism? Why haven’t we evolved into a more civilized society? These questions run through the minds of lightworkers and Earth angels everywhere, and in turn, they reject modern society based on the answers they receive. Many people call them hippies, but they just see caring for the planet and each other as normal, necessary parts of life.
Earth angels have realized that we cannot continue to live in a state of separation and isolation from one another; we absolutely need each other to survive. Earth angels just hope that we as a collective can come together and rejoice in the ultimate truth – that of our right to love, happiness, freedom, and abundance. We have enough on this Earth for everyone to live happily and fully, but our own consciousness inhibits us from living this truth. Earth angels focus on spreading ancient wisdom in hopes of waking up people to our connectedness.

 That’s the much I have about that, but I genuinely want to say that, I didn’t put up this post to create some level of seperatedness or isolation of the good and the ugly, instead its a callout to let you know who you truly are and or what you can become, we all can be Earth Angels, its really all about spreading Gods love, which is the utmost reason we are here on earth, it’ll cost us less to heal the world than to replace it, the idea behind every goodwill is Love devoid of pride, egocentrism, self acclaimed worth, hate, bigotry, arrogance, insolence and hubris. 

   The bible informs us that we were made in the image of God, that sort of connotes that we’re Gods in ourselves as well, its time we act like it! We all can be Earth Angels!! 

Eternal life 

We are living in a completely brainwashed generation, we have been fooled to believing that life is all about the material wealth you possess, we have been deceived by what we see on television, the lives of the celebrities are all we want to emulate instead of the spiritual life of Jesus Christ our savior. 

      Life on earth is a temporal assignment, we all are familiar with the affix that “nothing lasts forever”. The bible is full of metaphors that teach about the brief, temporal and transient nature of life on earth. Life is described as a mist, a fast runner, a breath, and a wisp of smoke. The bible says, “For we were born but yesterday…..our days on earth are as transient as a shadow”

   To make the best use of your life, you must never forget two truths: first, compared with eternity, life is extremely brief. Second, earth is only a temporary residence. You and I won’t be here too long, so don’t get too attached to material possessions because you met them here and you’ll surely leave them here. You see, what actually matters is the legacy you leave behind, the number of lives you touched on earth, that my friend is the only thing that transcends ages. In the bible, David prayed “lord, help me to realize how brief my life on earth will be. Help me to know that I’m here for but a moment more”.

   I find it really interesting how the bible already told us everything about ourselves before we were even conceived, severally it compares life on earth to temporally living in a foreign country this is not your permanent home or final destination. We’re just passing through, just visiting earth.

    In Abuja, where I live, many people have moved from other parts of the world to work here, but they keep their citizenship with their home country. They are required to carry a visitor registration card called a “green card” which allows them to work here even though they’re not citizens. We as Christians should carry spiritual green cards to remind us that our citizenship is in heaven. 

   Earlier I talked about ‘legacy”, legacy in this context talks about the milestones you’ve clinched, the history you’ll leave behind, what you will be remembered for, a lasting legacy is one that will continue to impact lives even when you’re not alive. Nelson Mandela of South Africa left an everlasting legacy in his country and the world at large for emancipating his people and standing up to the oppressors. Martin Luther king of the United States also impacted lives a great deal and it became a legacy that will forever affect the lives of blacks worldwide, he notably stood up against black oppression, slavery and racism.

    It is fair to say that the best way to live a lasting legacy is to live a life of service to humanity, standing up for the oppressed and going the extra mile for others even if there is no apparent reward because the real reward is in eternity. Your identity is in eternity, and your homeland is heaven. When you grasp this truth you will stop worrying about “having it all, material possessions on earth” God is very blunt about the dangers of living for the “here and now” and adopting the values, priorities and lifestyles of the world, God calls it spiritual adultery. The bible says, “You are disapproving of God if all you want is your own way and the things of the world, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his ways.

    Imagine your parents sold all their belongings and struggled so hard to send you to school with the intention that you will do so well and make the family proud but instead, you get influenced negatively by involving with the wrong people, you mix with them so well that you become as they are, you start engaging in fowl activities and end up getting expelled or worse getting in jail, all your parents worked for becomes a waste, all their efforts would be in vain and above all, you would bring an everlasting  seal of disgrace on the family name, you’d be no different from a traitor, you lost focus and conformed to the ways of the world.

     The bible says, “We are Christ’s ambassadors” but sadly, many of us have betrayed our king and his kingdom, they have ignorantly concluded that because they live on earth, it’s their home, well hey, it’s not!! The bible was very clear about that “friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it and don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Those in frequent contact with the things of the world should make good use of them without becoming attached to them, for this world and all it contains will pass away.

   We are living in a completely brainwashed generation, we have been fooled to believing that life is all about the material wealth you possess, we have been deceived by what we see on television, the lives of the celebrities are all we want to emulate instead of the spiritual life of Jesus Christ our savior. With all the fascinating attractions mesmerizing media and enjoyable experiences available today, it’s easy to forget that the pursuit of happiness is not what life is about. Only as we remember that life is a test, a trust, and a temporary assignment, we are preparing for something even better. The bible goes on to say “the things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow, but the things we can’t see now will last forever”. 

   The fact that earth is not our ultimate home explains why, as followers of Jesus, we experience difficulty, sorrow and rejection in this world just as he did. It also explains why some of Gods promises seem unfulfilled, some prayers seem unanswered and some circumstances seem unfair. Well I’m here to tell you this is not the end of the story, in order to keep us from becoming too attached to earth, God allows us to feel a significant amount of discontent and dissatisfaction in life-longings that will never be fulfilled on this side of life. Earth is not our final home, we’re just passing by, we are created for something much better.

   Fishes are not happy living in a fish tank, they feels trapped and restricted, give them a chance at open waters and poof! They gone. A bird can never be comfortable living in a cage, they’re created to fly, birds can’t fly in a cage, and that’s why they escape the slightest chance they get.

    You should never feel completely satisfied on earth because you were made for more. You will have happy moments here, but nothing compares to what God has planned for you. I couldn’t agree any less with what C.S Lewis said, “All that is not eternal is eternally useless”. The bible says, “We fix our eyes not on what is seen but what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal.

   It is fatal to think Gods goal for you is material prosperity or popular success, as the world defines it, the abundant life has nothing to do with material abundance, and faithfulness to God does not guarantee success in career or even ministry. Never focus on temporary crowns.

    Paul was faithful, yet he ended up in prison, john was faithful, yet he was beheaded. It almost seem as though the fate of the righteous ones are always fatal but I stand to tell you dear friend that this only goes to say that here is not your home and you have something better waiting for you in eternity. The bible even told us to rejoice in times of tribulations. People are quick to ask why bad things happen to good people, well look at the life of Jesus, all he did was help and heal people and yet he was crucified but now he’s the king of the world. 

     You see, the end of life on earth is not the end of life, in Gods eyes the greatest heroes of faith are not those who achieve prosperity, success or power in this life but those who treat this life as a temporary assignment and serve faithfully, expecting their promised reward in eternity. Your time on earth is not the complete story of your life. You must wait until heaven for the rest of the chapters, and before heaven comes judgment.  You will not be dead two seconds before you begin to question yourself “why did I place so much importance on things that were so temporal, what was I thinking, why did I waste so much time, energy and concern on what wasn’t going to last”.

     When life gets tough, when you’re overwhelmed by doubt or when you wonder if living for Christ is worth it, just remember you’re not home yet. At death you won’t leave home, you’ll go home!! So live life not for yourself alone but for others, pass the test of life and make it to heaven where was meant for you and gather memories that will go with you anywhere.

Let God into you!!

We were made to do great exploits, we were created to be creators, we were born with Christ Jesus

  George Santayana wrote, let a man once overcome his selfish terror at his own finitude, and his finitude is, in one sense, overcome.” And when we identify ourselves with God by living, acting, and thinking in him, we leave all fear and selfishness; our natures sour until they touch the skies. 

  He is content to be what he is, and he shows the same face to all. He seeks to improve himself, but not on the grounds of becoming better than or as good as somebody else but only to fulfill his own nature. He does everything easily, as if he had an especial talent for it, but the reason for his easiness is because he knows that another, greater part of himself is always the doer. He seldom sad, never fearful, always stands foursquare to every problem. How else could he be? His assurance is deep and spiritual. He knows that God dwells in the depths of all beings, and he therefore is equal to every occasion.

 Believe in God today because he is in you.

African pop culture (The Farmers of Africa)

This episode is to revalue the farmers, the feeders and breeders of nations, this is an exemplified and explanatory illustration of the obstacles and problems withheld by the African farmers. From the African farmers!!

“Plant a seed, feed a nation”was the preamble I grew up hearing right from childhood. More frequent than most everybody talked about how important farmers are to a nation.

  Schools made us farm as an extra curricular activity, I dreaded it so much and for some reason best known to the soil apportioned to me, my seeds never seemed to germinate. Oh well’ guess I wasn’t cut out for that.

 The movie “12 years a slave” is an award winning movie centered on slavery, but it expanciated on how Africans were forced to serve their masters and work in huge farmlands for days without enough food and less water, they were used to feed the colonies and their families. 

  Gradually it started to sink in, the importance of farmers cannot be overemphasized, they are the backbone of any economy. 

  Undoubtedly, the potentials of the  “African land” is phenomenal, its citizens are hardworking and capable of providing financial security, abundant farm yields, affordable educational system for the children, life security and a standard living for its people and the world at large. However, most of these potentials are left untapped due to the insufficient funding and financial support from the leaders of African states. More attention is paid to the common minerals that are feasible like gold, bitumen, oil and gas etc and they spend millions trying to harness them forgetting they might run out really soon.

Problems faced by the African farmers all generate from the deficient “financial support and investment” from the government of the states. And other Private owned organizations For example÷

* farmers can’t increase the size of their farmlands to accommodate more crops because they lack the finance, And the cost of purchasing a piece of land is ridiculously high these days. 

* inadequate access to fertilizers- due to the importance of this material to crops, the price has been escalated and keeps escalating, making it almost impossible for the farmers to purchase the quantity they need, they end up getting insignificant quantity that surmount to nothing at the end of the day.

* the major of all these obstacles remain the inability to purchase some basic farm implements and machineries that make work easier, faster and more efficient.  These farmers barely make enough money to feed themselves and their families, so it is absolutely preprostrous for them to purchase machines. With sufficient finance and funding they can purchase basic machineries like the land mower, chisel plow, sprayer, conveyor belt, grain dryer or even the common farm truck. But without these, they end up doing them manually which consumes time and gives chance to errors, it also resonates to very little farm output and unhealthy yields due to insufficient fertilization. 

  My plea is not only to the Leaders of Africa but for every single one of us to embrase the farmers and not see them as the low lives of the community but instead the “feeders of nations” that they rightfully are, let’s give them the support and aid that they require because they work for us all and they plant the trees that gives us oxygen(major bonus). Imagine a world without farmers? That’s starvation you see, that’s self inflicted famine. 

    The potential is there, the strength and will power is present, the ability and love that goes with all things is available abundantly, all that is required now is the support and mainly that of the “leaders”. 

   I visited various African farmlands and had a one-on-one conversation with the farmers to hear their opinions and deep rooted thoughts of the challenges and problems they face trying to feed the nation. I just aired some of it here! Stay glued for yet another episode of the African pop Culture-APC 

For a closing, here are some photos for your viewing pleasure 🙂

Many blessings to you, Mahdheebah 

Men Unalike

God doesn’t call the perfect, he perfects the called!!!

   I feel obligated  to say something about this topic and set it straight, it’s really sad when I see or hear people, young girls especially talking about how all men are the same, though nobody ever said it to me. I’m usually not one to judge anybody for any reason whatsoever but I observed the sort of girls who say that are those who are quick to jump into any kind of relationship that throws itself their way, without any evaluation, or assessment, thinking  is this the right person for me?, is this who God has ordained for me.

   It’s really unjust and erroneously judgmental to call all men equal or the same because God made everybody uniquely in his own image. You can’t classify powerful men of God in the same level as these basic materialistic men you flock around, you just can’t. 

     Recently I read a book “how to be a powerful Christian woman” by Joyce Mayer (don’t judge me), and she talked about how her husband helped her find and establish herself, how he’s heaven sent and unlike most. That’s a relationship built on a Godly foundation. I read another book by Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa a. Rice titled “for young women only” (again, don’t judge me) this book was basically written as a hack to help girls know the deepest secrets of boys, and how ‘they’ think.  A part of the book read “although guys look confident, they are often insecure in themselves, worry that they will be found out, and are therefore drawn to girls who help them feel like they measure up”. HA! How false, it’s not human nature to feel insecure, one only feels insecure only when they have a reason to feel that way.   

   Let me share a message I read from Kaliburius S. Bigelow. He said, Ladies be careful of the men you let into your heart and enter your body, sex is not only a physical exchange, It Is also a spiritual exchange. Sex is powerful and a direct pathway into your temple. Some of you can’t get over that low life of a man because the demons he carries within him still torment you spiritually. You know in your gut that even though he looks attractive something about him ain right. Yet, something keeps luring you to him. Your mind and body wrestles back and forth with spiritual principalities and “sexual soul ties”. You see, sexual soul ties bind you to that man, men his type and dark spirits that follow him. Some women often wonder why the same type of men always pursue them, why they attract the same type of guy after they got rid of the scum bag that plagued their life, it’s that familiar spirit he left with you!! BE CAREFUL who you open yourself up to receive. If he ain prayed up, don’t be laid up.

     It’s really easy to comprehend you see, if you think all guys are the same it’s probably because your spirit has been attracting the same kind of men. The good thing however is that you can change that if you put God first and pause on men. And also, when choosing a partner choose one who is good for you, not good for your parents, not good for your image, not good for your bank account, but choose someone that is going to make your life emotionally fulfilling and spiritually sound. Make sure you get somebody who can rekindle your fire if ever it goes out.

    Roxanne told me that so many good women have dealt with the wrong men and so many good men have dealt with the wrong women that by the time they both finally meet, they’re afraid of each other.  Sadly that’s so true, but it all comes down to you, if they look great but don’t love Jesus why should you be interested in a relationship? You should pray for them and lead them to Jesus not ignore their spiritual life and try to date them to Jesus. (Godly dating 101). I respect those who know how difficult being single can be, yet don’t rush the process, it’s not that you can’t find someone, you just need to understand that your singleness has a purpose, so love yourself but not in the self absorbed conceited way and seek God’s will. It’s easy to jump at every opportunity we get, but we have to remember what God has planned is better than what we could ever think of. God hasn’t forgotten you and if you doubt that, remember what Jesus told peter in john 13-7? “You do not realize now what I am doing but later you will understand”. So do you trust God?

I feel like now is a good time to say this, I was going to do a whole different post on this but now feels like a perfect time, I desperately want everybody to understand that there is a difference between Testing God and Trying God. What most of us do is test God, let me differentiate; testing God is what the devil tried to make Jesus do when he took him up to the mountain and told him to jump in matt4:6, trying God was what Jesus did when he told his disciples the multitude did not need to return home for food, and he blessed the five loaves of bread and two fishes and fed five thousand men aside women and children. Testing God is when you have an exam and you say God is control so you don’t read (you will woefully fail), trying God is when you read as much as you physically can and hand over the rest to God. You see how the bible tags the holy spirit as our helper, notice it didn’t call him the initiator, so what you don’t initiate he can’t help, he can’t even get involved if you don’t start! A synonym for “test” is challenge, why on earth would you want to challenge God? Most of us don’t get the healing or breakthrough we’ve been praying for because of the way we present it to God, you can’t say stuff like let me see if God can do this or use him as one of your alternatives, you go to herbalist, you go to native doctors hell you even visit babalawo (for my Nigerian people), then you now go to church to test God also. It can’t work that way, while TRYING God you make use of the fundamental traits of a Christian, “Faith&Belief”, while TESTING God however we imply Doubt&Arrogance. 

    Let me round off this article with a message Brook sent to me from CA. I found this rather funny than informative but you be the judge “To all the girls who are in a hurry to have a boyfriend or get married, a piece of biblical advise” Ruth patiently waited for her mate Boaz. So while waiting for your Boaz don’t settle for any of his relatives, Broke-az, cheap-az, lockedup-az, goodfornothing-az, lazy-az, and especially his third cousin Beatinyo-az. Wait for your Boaz and make sure he respects Yoaz!! 

      The message I’m trying to pass here is, whoever you are and from wherever you might be, your sin is not too great, you’re not the first person to do wrong, even in the bible Jacob cheated, peter had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Moses committed murder, Gideon was insecure, Miriam gossiped, Martha worried, Thomas doubted, sarah was impatient, Elijah was moody, zacchaeus was short, Abraham was old, lazarus was dead so you see, God doesn’t call the perfect he perfects the called!. I hope I have been able to share a little of my insight to you.

African pop culture (the African child)

The itty-bitty of the average African child, the struggle is surreal but the will is outlasting.

  This is a recital because it tells you what we are, it is a recital because it expanciates but concentrates on its core and values. The African pride, the African heritage, the African culture, the African wildlife and the African child. 

   I have so much to say about the average African child but so little to preach about the African government, the African child outplays every other because through every difficulty HE Stands tall and search a way to fix a smile on his face, unaffected by the underdevelopment and discomfort faced by Africa, they rise every sunset and work their way through till sundown with nothing but hope for the coming day. I admire the will of the African child, desperately looking for a means to survive, I can’t help but admire the will of the African child, Breaking barriers, overstepping obstacles, confronting dangers, withstanding pain, conquering hardship, facing fears, eliminating doubt and outlasting defeat, I can’t help but admire the will of the African child. 

 

 In some parts of the continent the average African child becomes a man at the age of 13! they hunt, they farm, they fish, then they feed. I have so much faith in the African child, the future of Africa finds comfort in their hands, before the rain comes the storm and this storm is just about rapping up in Africa.

  I can’t overemphasize the fact that there is no difference between us all really, we’re just two sides of the same coin, let’s not allow skin color distinguish us, let’s not allow religion divide us, let’s not allow borders separate us, let’s not allow political views split us and most importantly, we must never allow our material possessions define us. So instead of talking about making a particular place great again and hating Muslims meanwhile also creating harvoc among citizens and non citizens, why not make the whole earth great again. 

   There is no limitation to what we can achieve if we put aside our differences and work together as a unit towards a common goal.

   I have gotten remarkable feedbacks from awesome bloggers around the world, a very notable one is “let it be beautiful” please endeavor to check out the blog, she also came up with an amazing powerpoint-poem for Africa, amazing!

     There is still space for more people to join in the the hype and contribute in any little way possible, Africa is home to all. thank you for reading this episode of African pop culture(APC), stay tuned as many more ep’s are on the way. Xo 

AFRICAN POP CULTURE (APC)

This is a must read. Pay close attention, you might find here what you’ve been looking for in Africa (photos might be subject to copyright)

     African pop culture is an exclamation of the various ethnic groups in Africa, the diversity in every country, state, religion, tribe, community and language. I am bringing Africa to the screen of your computers, showing you all there is to know, (or at least ‘almost’ all there is to know). We will swerve through every country in Africa and elaborate on every tribe and its culture. This is going to be a free tourist train ride, and all you have to do is scroll. 
    You notice how artifacts and souvenirs from Africa speak Africa? I mean you literally don’t have to ask where it’s from! Huh. You might have heard countless negative stories about Africa, but I’m about to change your mind, I’m about to show you what the media won’t, I’m about to link you with young entrepreneurs from all over Africa with talents, skills and grave potentials and ability to turn CRAFT into ART.

   Couldn’t be more sure that everyone copped a version of the African attire “DASHIKI” that swept through North America, South America and some parts of Europe. here are some pictures to refresh your memory 

    The dashiki is originally from Ghana but it was made popular by the western parts of the world. The name dashiki is derived from the Hausa word “Dan ciki”, which means shirt. It comes in different variants, from simple draped clothing to fully tailored suits we got em all, as seen above. However, the Dashiki is one of many other African made designs that crossed the borders of Africa, we also had Unique necklaces cut out from prehistoric beads, woofs and horns of animals and just a bunch of other weird stuffs that seem really attractive. 

    When I speak about African culture, I want you to bear in mind that Africa is one of the most diversified continents in the world, if not the most (haven’t conducted that research yet) so culture varies in Africa as the languages do, and there are well over 1,000 indigenous languages spoken round Africa, that should give you an estimate idea how broad this will get. 
    During my research on Africa I came across a very upsetting article that read “most African countries are also known to be exceedingly poor and underdeveloped, where a significant number of people, particularly children, suffer from malnutrition. The incidence of malaria and HIV cases is also extremely high in Africa”. Well, I beg to differ. You see, that’s what the media will tell you, but what they won’t tell you however is that Africa is actually one of the wealthiest continents in the world, in terms of natural resources. Many countries in Africa contain rich reserves of valuable minerals like Colton, diamonds, gold and bauxite, as well as other valuable commodities like oil, gas and timber. I do agree however that this wealth has not historically translated into better living conditions for the average African person and there are numerous reasons for this, including colonization, corruption, armed conflict or rebellion as well as policies of international financial institutions like world bank and the IMF, but huge emphasis on CORRUPTION. So if you tag Africa as a poor continent you might be sadly mistaken because chances are it is wealthier than yours. But just like I stated earlier, this wealth hasn’t translated into riches for Africa just yet, as a result of corruption among its own leaders. The average African leader will export the natural resources of his country to foreign states and use the revenue to feed his family. Tell me then, how development will come? 

       Luckily that’s not what this article is about. I’m about to expose you to the rich cultural endowments of Africa and link you to the artisans/entrepreneurs who make it happen. I’m about to start a chain of connection that will transcend borders, create relationships and business partnerships, promote cultures and expose young entrepreneurs from round the world. I’m about to make Earth our COUNTRY and each country a STATE (maybe that way we will see how alike we really are).  

    African pop culture is about everybody, with a sense of taste, ostentation and charisma. It’s about everything, the jewelries, the bags, the shoes, the clothes and the hats. And it’s going everywhere. It is also going to be centered on youth empowerment, entrepreneurship, handy works, arts and craft, production, exportation and friendship.

    I’m taking this medium to call, beckon and summon anyone and everyone in and out of Africa with something rich and outstanding about your country and its cultural heritage, I’d love to work with amazing bloggers on this, let’s promote culture, lets link entrepreneurs and patronize them as well. This should be fun! Working and conversing with you all. So who’s in?
