It is obvious that the unemployment figures here in Nigeria are not looking good. Sometimes we also have the tendency to think that the grass is greener on the other side. We strive as much as possible to get there, only to see that the grass is not even close to green as it appeared on the ...

Dear IVF Newbie, If I’m correct, you have just come to the decision to try IVF after a few months, maybe even years, of infertility. You have grown tired of the many failed cycles and have decided to grab your destiny in your hands. If you are at the very early stage of the process, you are ...
“hello mummy” “Daddy is gone” Those three words uttered by my mummy at 7:25pm on November 15, 2013 shattered me. I screamed and started crying uncontrollably, I didn’t care that there were other passengers in the bus. After much effort and questions, I answered them in a flat voice “my ...

‘How would you like to die?’ I asked my friend as he drove us down to the city where we would attend a funeral. I had just arrived from another town, and while we reminisced about the life of our lost loved one, this question escaped my lips. ‘Hmmmmmmm, Winnie, I don’t know. I think in my ...
I live in an era in which every one has a voice, and every movement has its advocates. The continued fight for equal rights of racial minorities, LGBT advocacy and equality, the fight for democracy in dictator-ruled regions, the demand for the right to education in impoverished nations-all of ...

Back then in my secondary school (Mayflower School, Ikenne), we sang so many inspiring songs and one of them carries the title of today’s article. Some of us believed those songs so much that we got inspiration from them when we had our down times. Upon hearing the news about Dr. Myles ...
One endless cycle I’ve observed that is very common amongst us humans, is the act of wanting to be like the other person, and as a result of this, we are never satisfied. I believe this subject matter needs to be stressed, especially for those who still haven’t gotten accustomed to the fact ...
It's always great to hear stories of Africans around the world conducting inspirational initiatives, and getting recognition for it. British-Nigerian man, Oladimeji Adisa, who has run the Osun Foundation for two decades, has been honored by UK Prime Minister David Cameron, BBC reports. He ...
My mom never really liked Zinno Orara. She liked the artist, his work, just like everyone else. But the man? "That boy is a braggart", she would say, as music blasted from Bro Zinno’s Volvo. Often Lucky Dube; almost always reggae or soul. But as he rolled up his windows and stepped out of ...
Convincing my parents that I NEEDED glasses was very difficult. It was believed that I only wanted it as a fashion accessory and so I wasn’t getting them. My pleas fell on deaf ears, and every term I returned to school finding ways to adjust to my rapidly worsening astigmatism. I resigned ...
I envy couples that have never had to worry about that interesting window in a woman’s cycle called ovulation. The joy of being able to be intimate with your husband without having one eye on the calendar!!! I have had some of my less-fertility-challenged friends tell me that they too are ...
Every time I ask my gym members what part of the body they really want to work out, the abdominals is a no-brainer. Around the world, many people are drawn to core exercises, but mostly for vanity reasons. We all see fitness models with 6-pack abs, and gravitate towards that visual. A ...
"To go into business, for me, is the most difficult thing ever. You must be prepared to be emotionally broken down; you must be prepared to have sleepless nights; and you must be prepared to fall. You cannot succeed without making mistakes" With these immensely powerful words, South African ...
I was stupidly forgiving. I called it my strength. It pleased me to forgive people, to let everything go and give no further thought to what had been said or done. I took insults and abuse in good stride. I forgave even before I was asked. I welcomed anyone back, scratch that, I invited ...
