Dear Diary, I Am So Happy For Bola Like!

A close friend, bola got married about three weeks ago and is enjoying her honeymoon right now. The next morning after her wedding day, I asked whether sex was sweet. Guess what she said? 😂

Bola Is Married

OMG, it finally happened. Bola is married! Whoa. . . how weird is that to say? I can’t believe one of my personal persons is actually married! We have been talking about relationship and marriage issues ever since we met.

Bola and I have shared a lot together — pain and sadness, business and money, joy and fun.


An Inspiration From Wakanda (The 'Black Panther' 2018 Movie)

Y-e-s, yes! I went to see Marvel's latest movie, 'Black Panther' at the cinema yesterday and it was lit! I'm typing from the land of Wakanda right now. Lol. 

The fictional country of Wakanda is certainly a sight to behold in Black Panther. A futuristic metropolis brimming with sound and colour. *holds breathe* Can't catch my breath. Oh my!

Open Your Hand

Black Panther is the latest movie on the box office right now. It’s been the buzz ever since the premiere dropped. That I got to see it yesterday gives me joy. The colours, the movement, the depth, the vibrancy. I was mesmerized. I got all misty-eyed. My goodness. It was art. It was just a feast for my eyes.

One of the things I love about Black Panther is its pure representation of African culture  strong, powerful black men, beautiful, wise women, people of talent and colour. We even see Ankara fabric all over the place. Aww!

Ankara is my vibranium.

And the casting? Superb! Each character nailed their scripts to bits. The people of Wakanda is proud of their heritage and of who they are. They’re the type of heroes who inspire audiences down to their bones.


STYLE: Try Monochromatic Outfits For A Week And See What Happens

Happy Style-Sunday! Hope you're having an awesome Sunday? Great. I accidentally started something on WhatsApp which I hashtagged #LifeInColours, and it turned out to be a source of inspiration to me and all my friends.

We all dream, love and live in colours everyday.

Life In Colours

Have you ever seen the rainbow and how beautiful the colours are? Have you also wondered why God even created the rainbow in the first place? Me too!

If God created the rainbow, then it must be significant to our lives.

I think the seven colours of rainbow: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet / purple have significant and unique roles to play in all our life's journey —  healing, wholeness and well-being.


Top 15 Memorable Quotes By Billy Graham

Billy Graham, the nation’s best-known Christian evangelist who wrote some 30 powerful books, preached to millions in crusades, pastor to presidents and did great things for the propagation of the Gospel for more than 60 years, died yesterday (Feb 21) at his home in Montreat, N.C. He was 99.

Let's reflect on some of his words today . . .

Quotes By Billy Graham

To start with, when I read about what New York Times and Christian Today wrote about Billy Graham, I was provoked;

Mr. Graham took the role of evangelist to a new level, lifting it from the sawdust floors of canvas tents in small-town America to the podiums of packed stadiums in the world’s major cities. He wrote some 30 books and was among the first to use new communication technologies for religious purposes. During his “global crusade” from Puerto Rico in 1995, his sermons were translated simultaneously into 48 languages and transmitted to 185 countries by satellite.


Dear Diary, An Artist Drew A Picture Of Me On Paper

How would you react when an artist gives you an unsolicited portrait? Would you be surprised, touched, weirded out, what? Would you think that they like you as more than a friend?

Drawn On Paper

As I approached his desk, he handed me his sketchbook. Wondering why he wanted me to take a look, I collected it and opened its pages.

He had lovely sketches of landscapes, abstracts and few portraits. I was wowed at some and simply impressed at others.


You Need Some Provocation

Hi! Thanks for checking out this personal and intimate space. You'll find I share a great deal of my heart here. I have always liked to write and often found it to be therapeutic when facing different life experiences.

This time, it's not easy. I am no longer comfortable just being here.

Provocation Needed

I hung out with my creative friends from The Amplify Network last weekend. We celebrated promotions and greater achievements. We shared lessons from where we've been, testimonies about where we are and possibilities for where we are going. It was an inspiring hang out.

One of the things I said I needed accountability on, is starting a talk show. It's been lingering for months.

When Ify asked me what I was waiting for, I said I needed a push. Then she pushed me with her hand. Lol. But I knew what I meant by "push". I knew what I needed.


10 Ways to Fall in Love with Your Life

It's that time of the year when they rub it all in your face. Valentine this, valentine that! You feel like your life is the worst there is. "Why am I single?" "Am I that terrible?" "Why am I so lonely?" "When will I fall in love. . .again?" You keep beating yourself up.  Oh dear, this post is for you. It's quite a long article, but it's worth it. Although, I already created a podcast on it. I know exactly how you feel because I've been there too.

Fall in Love with Your Life

Falling in love is divine. It awakens the heart to the best part of life. Each day comes with boundless opportunities for you to to open your heart and fall madly in love with your life.

There are people, places and things (evuls) that try to steal the joy, hope and love in your life. Don't let them. I find that through the articles I write, the critical piece of advice I give is to be in charge of your emotions. There are bad news here and there, but I choose to be deaf to them. And I decide to hear and share good news only. You can wake up everyday and decide to fall in love with the life you have been given. Yes, you can!


To Know God; Make it Your Number One Goal

Happy New Week! I wish people would ask me more about how my relationship with God is fairing than just about when they are coming to eat jollof rice on my wedding Day. Lol.

The Number One Goal

We all have a story. The one God writes for each of us may go down many paths. No matter where you are on the journey, there is a plan and a purpose to what you experience. And that experience leaves you with some better knowledge of who God is.


STYLE: Sometimes The Colour Chooses You

It was never a plan to blog about green again (after last week), I just couldn't help but notice how green pieces have been spontenously showing up in my wardrobe lately. No I mean, I never intended to wear this particular shade for days in a row. I'm shock-ed!

Yeah, it's Sunday. Let's freestyle ;)

Green Is Calling

The last time you were asked what your most favourite colour was, what did you say? Is it still the same as today, now?

Or, are you one of us who don't know our best colours? It's hard to choose, I know right? Me too.

When we can't choose a best colour, the best colour would probably have to choose us.

I personally believe that colours are way underrated when it comes to fashion and style. Whether you know it or not, everyone has a best colour. It's often revealed during your wardrobe sanitation. More often than not your best colour palette is made up of the colours you are already drawn to and helps explain why you're always having the same coloured clothing.

Dear Amaka,
you can be so much more.

RELATIONSHIP: Do We Have To Talk To Each Other Everyday?

Hi sweethearts. It's another Love-Wednesday in February. Yay. Do you think that if you are in a serious relationship, you should stay in contact with your partner every day? Let's talk.

Talking Everyday

Relationships are hardwork. So hard, that sometimes we don't know what we are getting into until reality dawns on us. We’re just so excited about this new person, this new prospect, that we just want to jump to the end where everyone is happy and in love.

Abi? Is it not true?


DIARY: First Time On The Longest Canopy Walkway In Africa

When someone says they are adventurous, do they mean they can jump off a plane? climb up a mountain? catch a grenade? do things like that?

The Canopy Walkway
~ February, 2018 ~

This is not my first time at The Lekki Conservation Centre (LCC), one of the best natural reserves in Nigeria but it is my first time on the canopy walkway. What an experience!

I've always known I'd walk on this thing one day but I didn't know I'll be doing it in 2018. Lol.


STYLE: All Pastures Are Green But They Have Different Shades

Happy Style-Sunday! Let's go green today. How many shades of green do you know? It would shock you to know there are over 20 shades of green in the world. Not kidding.

Shades of Green

While drafting this post, I did a study on "pastures", "green", and "green pastures". And I'm totally blown away by my latest discoveries. On one hand I'd love to tell you all if it, but on the other hand I wouldn't want to bore you.

Psalm 23:2 says "He makes me lie down in green pastures." Interestingly, the Bible did not exactly tell us what shade of green the pasture is.

What if we were meant to lie down on different shades of green at different phases of our lives? Ponder on that for a minute.


PHOTO: What Is Art, Really?

Few minutes ago, I was playing with an app on my phone called 'PicsArt' and viola! this beautiful picture happened! The tag line on this app says "everyone is an artist". So I'm wondering, perhaps we should ask: what is art, really?

What Art Means To Me

I have worked closely with various kinds of artists. As a matter of fact, I work in a creative industry. So I am open to a wide range of art. However, one thing I find common among every artist I have come in contact with, is their emotions and personal experiences. They pour it out like streams of water. It's inspiring HOW they share it.
