Every time there is a war between two countries, men are sent out to fight and have a peace watch all over the city; they stag, train, combat for their country’s name. Many of them return and many don’t, they are either “missing in action” or dead to the reality of life they come back to. These men are fathers, husbands, sons, boyfriends, colleagues, best friends and uncles. They leave home to train before wars and sometimes come home bruised, they leave home for war and sometimes come back paralyzed amputated or insane. They have been brave, they have been selfless. Those they leave behind often pray and render wishes that they would come back; sometimes those prayers may be answered and sometimes it all goes wrong and there are more tears than pain like the day they left. Young ladies have become widows, kids have become fatherless. Time and time again its always the same. Men who have joined the force either to the opposing or defending battalion have done so for their countries, families and even themselves; they have fought the good fight and regardless of who comes back home or not, they are always regarded as hero(s). The hero(s) of many nations are those men who volunteered as soldiers to go into war, they are hero(s) to their family and hero(s) to one another and hero(s) to themselves. They are selfless and respect an honor belongs to them You might […]
Last year, House of Twitch produced a new face to represent Mr Ideal Nigeria; by that time, it was in its third selection. Voting lines were opened and the people chose Abayomi Towase. He had never been schooled in the art of modelling and had never understood the key to fame but like every aspirant he had registered to represent the Osun state region of Nigeria and had become the winning face of Mr Ideal Nigeria 2012.

When we meet people, we connect with them one way or another and because bonds keep growing, we stick together and call them friends. They are usually the ones we share our thoughts, issues and a lot of with; they are people like us, they have emotions, trials and strengths. Friendships can last for years and can last for months or even a day but most importantly, friends often become our best teachers. They are always considered to be two or three girls laughing at the same things, two guys appreciating the same things or two opposite sexes with no sexual link, sharing a joke. Surprisingly, they always like the same thing or share common interests; its like when single ladies have common discussions or dislike similar people, married women see the same doctor for their children, men enjoying computer games, older men having the same taste for women and cars and opposite sexes, enjoying each other’s conversation. Many a time some quarrels might happen among all of them and not surprisingly it is often for the same things they shared in common; single ladies who get married and leave the others alone, married women who say their children are more important than friends, men who fall in love with ladies their friends disapprove of, older men who see the other friend as a threat because he has nicer things and opposite sex friendships which lead to relationships that begins […]
Watching “Things Fall apart” as a child on NTA was epic for me because when I studied it in school, it came to me as if every scene was being replayed in my head. It made the reading interesting and even though I knew the end and knew the songs, it was worthwhile having a priceless book in my hands even though I had not met the author, I felt glad that I understood a bit of Nigerian history. Yesterday there was a breaking news that Chinua Achebe, the author of that same book is dead. Many may never understand why some people will take his death serious, some might even say everyone seems to know Chinua Achebe feeling like a writer. May be you don’t know who he is, may be you never read his work but whoever a person is, regardless of how small, he or she is a person and when that person makes a difference in any way, his or her death must be felt. Chinua Achebe is not only an author, a father but he is a friend to a writer we have come to admire. A friend whom she avoided at first but got to meet because he is her legend, her teacher and her mentor. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie will never be Chinua Achebe even if she lived in his house, read his books and had lunch with him, in fact none of us […]
For many years, breast cancer has been a focus for many charitable organisations which indeed has helped many women survive this deadly disease which has made many shameful of their organs. Day after day, medical personals have developed better treatment and easy diagnosis method which have controlled the disease and many have also failed to educate women on other possible breast diseases. Men are often drawn to a woman by her breast and many women find it seductive when part of it, comes up in whatever clothing they have on; it is not as bad as it is but it is worse when a woman forgets her breasts are far more effective than it is. The breast often suffers from other diseases which do not even include cancer and it may or may not concern you at this time but it is very important, that a woman tender’s for her inner body as she does her outer part. There is a list of other breast diseases which women must educate themselves about; they include Benign Breast Disease This disease is known by other names, such as lumpiness, fibrocystic and mammary dysplasia. It is described as a rough surface often felt around the nipple. People don’t notice it until they are middle aged but it helps to take supplements which help the hormone; they are not cancerous but it is important that every lump is noticed and taken […]
Time after time I hear people complain; they complain of what they have or what they don’t have, they complain of what they can see and what they can’t; when things fall into place, some people become proud and when things falls apart, some have egos that say “oh am fine” even when they’ve messed things up. Its human to complain but its not human to keep it up; time isn’t going to wait for you to appreciate what you have, you either understand the circle of life or you don’t. No one will teach you. With the economy which is really not a novel affair in the study of economics, those with jobs complain, those without jobs complain, its seems absurd but it confirms a say that people are born to complain. The economic trial is not new yet people complain (and yet we say women nag). Every time we see others having some thing we don’t, we complain…is mankind ever satisfied? Are we ever going to find the good in what we have? Relationships have crashed because both parties complain about majority of things the other does and time after time we fail to realize that this is the closest lesson that teaches us that we also are not perfect; you simply cannot have everything at once- its not a curse, its the way the universe says I can’t have the sun all day long. I don’t know what your […]
