BN Hot Topic: What are You Thankful for?



Tis the season to be jolly tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!!

It’s exactly 4 weeks to Christmas and we at BellaNaija are excited! The year has been absolutely fantastic and we are grateful to all our readers and partners for making this a joyous year! We are also sending a special Happy Thanksgiving shout out to our American readers and partners!

As is usual for this time of year, we are all preoccupied with Christmas shopping. Getting our loved ones the right gifts and making sure we have enough money in the bank to entertain family and friends over the holidays. Some of us have already started making plans for next year, reevaluating and strategizing. But before we go that far, I think this is about the right time to pause and think about year 2010. The year really came with its highs and lows but if you are reading this today, you can hold your head up high as a survivor! So before we begin to usher in the New Year and all it holds for us, we at BN want us all to take time out and really be thankful for all we have achieved this year.

To get us started, I went round asking members of the BN team and some of our favorite celebrities to tell us all what exactly they are thankful for….

“I am thankful for life, good health and family. I am thankful for a flourishing career and successful business ventures. I am also thankful for everyone’s support especially my fans”

Darey Art-Alade (Award winning artist)

“I am grateful for God’s protection and guidance this year, I have found myself in many situations that I would never have found my way out without His guidance. On a separate note I am also thankful for Lynxxx, his music has really made a difference in our feelings towards international influences”.

Jite Ovueraye( BN Contributor)

“I am thankful that my family and I are alive and healthy. This year was filled with so many shocking stories it is truly by God’s grace that we are counted among the living today! I am thankful for my wonderful parents, family and friends who daily show me the true meaning of love and support. I am also thankful for my career, moving back home after being away for 8years was really scary, but God has opened doors I never thought possible and for that I am truly thankful”.

Glory Edozien (BN Features Editor)

“I am thankful for my mother, because I realize the bulk of who I am comes from her. She has taught me so much i.e. resourcefulness, perseverance, the importance of having a forgiving heart and having a right attitude but most of all she has taught me to always be the bigger person. So in a nutshell, i am happy with the girl in the mirror and i see where it all comes from and I am thankful for the lady responsible”.

Wana Udobang (Inspiration FM OAP)

“I am thankful for being able to bring to life many of my dreams and ideas. I am also thankful for the two books (How to Stop Worring and Start Living by Dale Carneige and Seven Habits of Effective People by Stephen Covey) I read this year that changed my life”.

Chude Jideonwo (Creative Director of RedSTRAT Communications)

“I am thankful for my family, they’ve brought me so much more joy this year than ever in my entire life”

eLDeethedon (Award Winning Artist and Celebrated Producer and Director)

“I am thankful to God for love (which I share with friends and family, for what I do, for people, places animals and the little things), life, lipstick and lemon trees because with all of the above, all’s always well”.

Adaure Achumba (TV Personality)

“I’m grateful for so much! Firstly, I am thankful for the gift of life and good health and for the love and support of family and TRUE friends. Secondly, I’m grateful to have a great job at TheBeat99.9fm which gives me the opportunity to connect with people everyday. Thirdly, I’m grateful for the opportunity to endorse Soulmate hair products and for being able to start my own company- Speakerboxx Productions. I am also grateful for the young talented Nigerians who are excelling in their different professions. Finally, I’m grateful for Icecream factory”!

Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi (The BeatFM OAP)

“I’m grateful for a lot of things. I am thankful for Life, the ability to laugh, cry and rejoice! I’m thankful for a few good friends, wonderful colleagues who work so hard but sometimes drive me crazy! I’m appreciative of my 6 amazing sisters and my Super Human Mother who have been extremely supportive through out the years! I’m thankful for the talent God has bestowed on me, giving me the chance to share it with others! I’m grateful to the people who’ve criticized and commended my work so far! And I’m thankful to every single person who has contributed to my personal growth and that of the industry I work in! I’m thankful for the amazing talent this country has produced giving us the opportunity to be recognised beyond the shores of our nation”!

Yvonne ‘Vixen’ Ekwere (TV Personality)

“I’ve been very thankful for my family in 2010 – my mother and sisters are constant sources of inspiration, motivation and happiness for me. This year has had its ups and downs for me, and when I’ve needed cheering up, tough love or a shoulder to cry on, they’ve all been there for me in one way or another and I am truly grateful for that”

Toolz (The BEATFM OAP)

“I really have a lot to be thankful for and God really went out of his way to bless me this year. I’m thankful for good health, a supportive family and wonderful colleagues at work. I’m thankful for the ability to launch on the 1st of April,2010 and the love shown to us in a short period from people all over the world. I’m thankful for the Team360nobs (Oye, bims, Hexy, Onyinye, Frank, Lucy, Bubba, Kennie, Peter, Akin, Bayo, N6, MI, BankyW, Lami, lusea, Tari) I know I may have skipped some people but I’m really thankful to all the contributors. I’m thankful for having my ABE boys as friends, Segun, Ebuka and Olamide. I’m thankful for the unrulies,the Ani sisters (group kiss), EME, Mohits and my twitter followers. I’m thankful for having a friend like Jude Abaga and the completion of the Project MI2. I know this will put me in trouble because I may have skipped some important people who might have part my growth process this year. I’m thankful for everybody who has participated in the project My 1000 Smiles of 2010 ongoing on and the support on the project by Deola Sagoe .If you are interested please email [email protected] ( Nobs,enough of the plugging jor). Lastly I’m thankful for the gift of life and the air that we breath. God bless you all”

Noble Igwe (360Nobs)

Now it’s your turn! Tell us what you are thankful for and lets all celebrate the year that is 2010! Hoping that 2011 will bring even better things to be thankful for!

    I am thankful to God for all the battles you fought and won on my behalf that i am not even aware of.
    I thank you for that God news i got from the doctor that morning that made me almost jump out of the cab in awe of you.
    I thank you for being faithful in spite of my moments of faithlessness.
    I thank you for most beautiful daughter who has kept me smiling in spite of the rain that has been drenching my life in recent months. She has been a ray of sunshine in this endless tunnel.
    I thank you, Lord for healing my mother and keeping her healed irrespective of the odds and the statistics that are stacked against her.
    I thank you for her amazing love for me, although we fight all the time.
    Lord, thank you for my wonderful wife.She loves me freely.
    Lord, i thank you for good health all though i take it for granted at times.
    Almost as important, Lord thank you the simple joys of football, it has kept me going during my dark days.
    Finally, Lord, thank you for the new covenant;it is for everlasting and nothing can change that.

    I am thankful to God for my life, my mother’s life, my siblings, my God parents and their entire family. I am thankful to God that my divorce went through this year, thankful I got out safely before my ex-husband killed me. I am thankful that even though I was beaten, assaulted, almost penniless, I got the strength to walk away. I am thankful that I accomplished so much this year, finished projects I started years ago but my ex-husband always prevented me from finishing.
    I am thankful for a wonderful family that have supported me all my life and especially in this past year. I am thankful and feel so blessed because I know some other women were not as lucky as me to get out safely.

    I am thankful that I am still standing, doing great and looking forward to the great and wonderful things that the Lord will continue to do in my life and the life of my entire family. I am thankful for life and everything that comes in between.

    I love you God and I am thankful that the Lord loves me even more…

    I am grateful to God for wiping away my tears, for making my mother smile. I am grateful to God that despite being a “bastard”, despite what people thought will come out of such a circumstance, despite the many struggles over the years, God has indeed proven that he alone holds our destiny in his hands.
    I am grateful for the most loving fiance in the world,
    For a strong, beautiful and caring mother,
    For a loving and sweet grandma,
    For uncles and aunties, cousins, friends that love me so
    For a fantastic job that can only get better
    For so many other things I cant begin to write about
    But above all, im grateful to God for his love that gives me such assurance that I will have a glorious tomorrow……..Glory has got me sooooo emotional 🙂

It’s not been the easiest year, but i can say it”s the most liberating i have ever experienced in my sojourn on earth so far.

    I am thankful for love, life, health and friendship; for how God has continually redirected me to the right path when I missed my way and was always there providing solutions even before I dared to ask Him; for peace in the midst of the storms of life; for God holding and keeping me till the end of my undergraduate studies; for a dream internship just as I was tidying up my B.Sc. programme-what you’d call a miracle; for spectacular people who have impacted my life in tremendous ways this year, whether up-close or from a distance: Chude Jideonwo and the REDSTRAT crew, Mrs. ‘Nike Esiet and the Action Health Incorporated team, Uche Eze and her worthwhile, Tolu Ogunlesi, my ‘twin sister’ from another family, and many other people this limited space would never allow me to mention; for friends whom I have had the rare privilege of blessing in diverse ways – omo na God o!; for God’s provision and protection; for family and friends; for the positive evidences and assurances of a done-deal future; for the bitter lessons learnt; for everything else I have enjoyed. Truly, God has been (very) good… and I know it! Thank you Jesus!!! 🙂

    I am thankful that by His grace I finally garnered the courage to leave an abusive relationship (physical, verbal & emotional). I’m thankful I now see possibilities all around me. I’m thankful I’m happy…that my smile is no more plastic! I am now experiencing the riches of His grace!

    I am thankful for good health (I so do not take it for granted) and for supportive family and friends who stood by me when i was going through a really tough time. I’m thankful for my job at Splash 105.5fm and all my colleagues, even those who totally drive me mad. I’m grateful for God’s love for me and his promise for a brighter day!

    I’m thankful to God for the gift of life because so many people whom we started the year with, passed away before the end of the year. I’m also thankful for the living in good health. I’m thankful for my family, good friends and my colleagues.

    what am i not thankful for??? nothing people!!!
    nothing at all..
    for where i am today, where my family is.
    for undeserved favor and grace
    for faith and for uplifting … for Christ because he is the reason for the season and for living
    for my friends, they have never been better…
    for realizing who i am and who i am not.
    for God’s special gift of life..
    and finally for the grace to know that tomorrow is going to be BETTER!!

    Dont even know where to start unveiling my reason for been soo thankful…Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof.. I see ray of light at the end of this dark long tunnel…God has been so faithful…at least we can now eat 3 square meal…pay for our up almost all our endless list of debtors…and also have little to spend on cloths…for d past 4 yrs my father remarried, all these have been a luxury….but his strength is made perfect when our strength is gone….He gave us a mother who stood by us thru thick and thin and gave us a reason for an audacity of hope…now i see light…and it keeps getting brighter by d day…God we are soo grateful…

    So thankful to God for where he brought me from and for where He is still taking me to. Without Him, there would be no me. Glory be to His holy name

  66. The year’s been eventful; some good, some not so good. Some good things beyond expectations, some not quite the way I’d have hoped… but in all, I give God thanks. For the additions and otherwise.
    It’s not over yet, so still hopeful and thankful for the future.
    Congrats BN- appearance on Oprah, CNN et al.
    Well done!
