  1. The major cause of the  Africa problems mostly Nigeria, is religion, take it or leave it. As I sat down to think critically why things are the way they are in Africa especially Nigeria, I came to the conclusion that we are too religious self centered.

    As a people, we have relegated our thoughtfulness to prayers alone and as such, refuse to learn or work with our brain. People now believe in prayers to solve empirical or scientific problems. The best prayers does is to open our understanding and knowledge to apply wisdom to use educational knowledge in solving problems.

    China isn't a religious country like ours but doing greatly in the world both in economic and infrastructure development. They don't need or have Daddy GO, pastors, Imam, or even Rev to give them annual prophesies in order to progress.

    They don't build monumental churches or mosques like we do here. With all the expensive buildings of churches we have here in the country, how many development have we recorded? While we are busy competiting  about who has the biggest cathedral, China and other working countries are busy building giant strides developmental project improving lives and national interest.

    How long are we going to be praying for a better Nigeria? How long are we going to be reading prophetical statement year in year out screaming ride on Sir, daddy GO and nothing seems to be working out? When are we going to start acting and stop waiting for God to come down and better the country for us?

    I want to believe Nigeria is older than Malaysia and Singapore but can you compare Nigeria with both countries now? While we are  busy praying, they are busy working. Do you now understand and see the problems facing us.

    The same prayer will make a man drive on a faulty car with bad brake hoping for a safe journey, isn't that stupidity? The same prayer will make a severe medical cases be taken to church instead of hospital. Are clergies now saddle with the responsibility of medical doctor.

    They keep telling us to pray pray pray as if we haven't been praying. What we need now is working action and not just prayers alone. Faith without good work is death itself. Let all of them prophets, pastors, daddy GO, all team up with their wealth and build a better Nigeria by building infrastructures that will enable growth and development. Monumental Cathedrals and private jet ownership won't help the overpopulated Nigerians living in penury and abject poverty.

    8. TJ, in as much as I agree with what you say but the churches and all are not our problems.
      No matter how u look at it, the government has its responsibilities and it's high time they lived up to it. Pastors and churches as u term them are not the one(s) that should provide us with developmental projects or pilot our developmental strides.
      You mentioned Malaysia and Singapore in your write up, if I remember correctly, Malaysia took some palm fruits in Nigeria in the 70's or 80's( can't remember which) and today, they are the world's largest producer of palm oil and its related produce. My question is, was it their churches or pastors that took the palm nuts from us or developed it? No.
      Till date, I'm yet to see a more intricately built and designed church with lots and lots of valuables in it like the St.Peter's Basilica in Rome, last time I checked, the Vatican is still one of the best countries in the world.
      So my dear brother, like I said, I understand where u are coming from( our churches can drive one mad really), but let's call a spade a spade. Let's stop expecting individuals or groups to do that wch is supposed to be done by government, let's learn to hold them responsible as that is the reason for the Social contract in the first place( u can read up on that).
      I remember when Bill Gates arrived Nigeria for Dangote's wedding, I watched an interview he granted...one of the question thrown at him was what his foundation is doing in the sphere of poverty reduction. Bill categorically stated that there are certain things his foundation can't do, at least, until government takes giant strides in the said sector. That NGO's can only help, it's not in their place to provide these things.

      So my dear, in as much as you are entitled to your opinion( I won't convince you otherwise), but from my own perspective, the church and neither the clergy had(have) nothing to do with our less than average development in Nigeria. Let the government do their bit, individuals do theirs and groups will do theirs too...agbakoo mamiri onu, ogbaa ofufu.
      Thank you.

    10. Mhiz A... Thanks so much for that rejoinder and insight. If you understand me clearly, I never said Nigeria development is solely on the hands of the church rather I am saying our mentality as a people should change for good. If we use one quarter of the time we spend on prayers daily to think and work, then I believe we will have a working society, but no, we rather believe on prayers as the antidote to change everything for us.

      Have we ask ourselves, was it prayers others used in developing their countries? We need to start taking actions such as holding those responsible who are in governmental position.

      The church in the other hand can be a great and major influencer to drive development in the country if they initiate programs among their congregants.

      Do you know the people listen to their pastors more than the government? When the government fail in their duties, then the church should stand in the gap. When the churches train members on skills, empower them and build ICT centers, they end up impacting educational knowlege and development to the people, who in turn becomes entrepreneurs and effect a positive change to the society.

    11. God bless you Mhiz A.

      Teejay... PRAY! Yes you should pray. To everyone who has a spiritual being they believe in, there are rituals. Prayer is a necessary one. Whether you worship sango, osun, mohammed, Jesus, satan or the eight immortals; you are to abide by the rituals your beliefs encourage.

      Now if someone, decides to take it to a whole new level of stupidity, how is it another person's fault? Let me tell you, the Chinese you speak about they worhip sooo many gods. But they have not allowed religion becloud their sense of reasoning. They still push themselves in the areas of technology, arts and education. The issue isnt our religion. the issue is that we are often too lazy to think outside the box and take responsibility. So we want to outsource our problems to someone else - Jesus. Hoping he can handle them on our behalf. And even though I believe He can, I also believe he didn't give me a brain to be useless. My dear, there are many exposed, hardworking, intelligent and focused born again christians who are making it in various sectors. Those are the people I like to mingle with. Not the 'God will do it for me' crew. You can never realize all your potentials if you keep outsourcing your problems to God. He will keep giving you manna but you need to work your way up to the promised land.

      Also, in more organized systems, we still have pastors who live lavish. But the pangs from the flock arent as much as the ones from Nigerian congregation. This is because:
      1. People are taught from a young age to be responsible for themselves and not rely on anyone in their decision making. So even the pastor is not trying to manipulate them - unless it is an occultic church.

      Delete
    12. 2. the church system is run as a charity/ community support. NOT a business entity. KICC was closed in UK at some point because the GO was running it like a Nigerian church and the authorities were not having it.
      3. The pastors work. They had jobs before they were ordained, kept those job. their wives work too! Usually as nurses up to PHD level. Many of our pastor friends in US and UK are trained lawyers, doctors, nurses, IT gurus and the likes. They combine ministry with their day jobs and boy! Its not easy. the ones who cant do 9-5 are self employed. They will write books, teach at seminars, open african shops etc to make ends meet.

      Lots of Nigerian pastors have successful businesses. Dont be fooled my dear! I be church pikin and I can tell you that all that 'tithe money' cant give you a lavish lifestyle. People can sow into your life and if they feel blessed but thats on them. Pastor Godman of elevation said that someone recently sowed a car into his life. He sowed his own car into another pastor's life and had been quietly using his wife's car hustling to get another. When someone who isnt even a church member decided to sow into his life. He specifically said: if you see me in a new car, please it is not your tithe money. It is a gift.

      Large churches have big bills and run welfare systems. Some of them buy church property and pay in bits until they complete it. But someone will be getting angry thinking it was bought with lump sum 'that should have been given to the poor'. Those guys live and move by faith so much that they often appear crazy until you see it manifest. What a smart Nigerian pastor would do is invest church money in sustainable businesses that can outlive them. And even running those businesses for success, IS NOT EASY. Cos everyone believes that they can cheat the church and so they target the investment. When you see men like Oyedepo opening eye for their church's businesses dont blame them. There are alot of treacherous people in church. Did you not hear if the head usher in redeem who was using tithes and offering money to build houses and buy cars and was dedicating every other month?? Until records showed that somethibg was wrong and a security search was conducted after service one day to reveal it in his boot.

      I really dont like arguing on religious issues because I am not interested in trying to make anyone see from my POV. To each his own lets all do what works for us. But like @Mhiz A said the church isnt the cause of Nigeria's problems. If the Govt. was doing its bit I promise you that many Nigerians wont even go to church. Go abroad na!! See tiny Nigerian congregations littered everywhere because Nigerians are comfortable in those societies.

      Abeg let me stop here

    14. I believe the religion places also contributed to it. Let be sincere, we are the government and we need to see beyond our nose. Government didn't start yahoo yahoo we as Nigerians did. We need to redeem ourselves and work with the slogan "What can I do for my country instead of what my country can do for me.

      Nigeria can be greateven greater than these so called countries if we as people stop glorifying thieves (politicians) then it won't be a do or die affair.
      Let hold our politicians accountable, public servants and Co.

    15. I really would have taken your comment serious, mr teejay but I didn’t see reason to because you missed the point from the beginning. First, your generalization of Africa even though your focus is Nigeria but using Nigerian case as an absolute for the whole continent. Your mention of China and how their system works betrays the realities of the chinese society. It means you have no knowledge of what happens in China. Furthermore, it also betrays your notion of “think critically” because I didn’t see anything critical about your comment. In addition to that, I cannot see you thinking critically when you take the words and fraudulent examples and sources of idiots such as nnamdi kanu as primary sources and references for serious matters. In summary, you have not said anything special. While I agree with Chikito to some extent, I differ on how she makes apologetic excuses for pastors exploiting followers through charities and tithes. Such rationale excuses pastors of their luxury lifestyle gotten through forceful and manipulative textual interpretations in order to win favours of gifts, charities and tithes. If that was not the case, Oyedepo et al won’t be living the lavish life he enjoys with his family at the expense of his majority followers who cannot afford the universities established through their monies. Like you, I don’t like arguing about religious issues but the important thing is that we should understand the term religion as a christianoform, secular and post Christian definition of belief systems which narrows all belief system into a parochial definition of concept.

    16. Anonymous 10:27, you have a right to your own opinion but those who have no hate in them understand my post and have contributed their own voice. For the record, I never used any example of whoever you think, they are my words and opinion. You always seems to be on the offensive on my comment always, citing Nnamdi Kanu, and I want to ask you, are you okay? How does my comment relate to Biafra or Nnamdi Kanu? Did you see a quote of him in my writeup?

    18. @10:27 I am not a winners chapel member but let me tell you what I know. Lecturers in Oyedepo's uni gets free accommodation, courtesy of the university. This is because of the location and it is an added benefit to their salaries and allowances. I know they also give education perks for the ones with younger children. I also know that some church members are given scholarships, especially if you pass your WAEC in flying colours and are unable to fund your way through university. And if the university was open to everyone in Winners for free, it wont even contain them. The question of standardization also comes in.
      Oyedepo is NOT the Government and is not the reason for our failed education system. Convenant University is modelled after Oral Roberts University in Okhlahoma - a university built by on religious grounds, giving students strict rules. You dont hear Americans complaining about who and who does this or that at ORU. Because *THEIR GOVERNMENT* has given them good tetiary institutions. When you pass your SAT you can go to university and even go on student loan if you are too broke. Let's face it: Nigerians will keep saying this about Oyedepo and conventry because most of our Government universities are no match in terms of course delivery and facility management. Simple.

    20. Looool teejay wants anonymous to start writing on subject matters on this blog in order to prove himself of the knowledge he dished out to him. Lol. Very funny. teejay, he doesn’t have to do that to prove himself and his level of education or deep thought. The pieces you manage to put together are not special please. Everyone on this blog can write such mediocre stuff. You should thank Stella for editing them for readable quality. I think we are fine with most of the materials we read from Stella’s posts. We don’t need more to them. Yours should not even be in the first place but thanks to Stella’s kindness for letting them have space on this blog.
      Chikito, so sad you have no iota of knowledge of how O R university operates. If you did, you wouldn’t make such blatant comparative claim. Read up what happened between the trustees some years back and the kind of complains that took over the committees in charge of running the school. So it is nothing new. It is not about the government providing them with good tertiary institutions. I fear such is not the case with universities attended majorly by blacks or people of colour in the States. And this is the case right from elementary schools in the neighbourhoods of people of colour. Was it not in the US that a pastor recently bought a Lamborghini for his wife? What were people’s reactions to it? On every social media, there were reactions to the news. So yes, it is not about Oyedepo alone. The same happens in the States. Americans have backlashes on their pastors using their hard earned monies to buy private jets and to enrich themselves. Stop glorifying them when in fact, the same kind of reactions by Nigerians over their GOs’ extraordinary stealings apply in the American society. Using accommodations for lecturers and education perks for lecturers’ children as examples flaws an argument because the same applies to private and federal universities even in our country. And other parts of the world. It is a common practice to get such perks for children of university staffs. Well, accommodation doesn’t apply to all universities but many get allowances for such necessity.,
      The tuitions at all-winners-run universities are not friendly to the masses of the church not to talk of the greater majority of the country. What they pay is not a relative cost but an exceptional one. This is not the case with O R uni you claim is modeled after. Or religious establishments even in the States. Check their costs and average it by other universities in the US and the standard of living you will get the point. Despite that, university education in Nigeria is more affordable to more than half her citizen than in the States. You hardly get a Nigerian graduate in debt over tuition. American citizens mostly graduate with thousands of dollars loans on their heads which are paid for several years.
      As you said earlier, you are a church pikin so your rationale to give some excuses and being apologetic is in order. But the costs of running all these operations and activities you argue for the churches do not commensurate the massive earnings, vis a vis the lifestyles of these men and women running these establishments. Going by your examples in your first comment, these GOs know for good that they cannot do the same in the UK and US as they have tried before in which some of them were caught and had to withdraw their stealings. Yes they are private establishment and they don’t need government to direct them on how to run it. But they can’t run away from systemic order. So you see them claim that their establishments are charity and non-profit based but go behind doors to run dodgy paper works. Making profits out of their monthly publications but claiming they are not profit based just to avoid income taxes. Exporting such illegalities from Nigeria to foreign countries.

      Delete
    21. Its obvious we both have different experiences and opinions about church issues, so I wont even try to change your mindset. If you have labelled every well-to-do man of God a thief, who does dodgy paper works to evade tax; who am I to convince you otherwise? From my understanding (as a very proud church pikin) there is a lot of biase when it comes to pastors and their lifestyles and church money. And well they signed up for it so they really dont budge. Buuld a million dollar stadium in brazil, with poor people living a few km down the road and let it go to waste after olympics - no complains, successful games hosting. Build a million dollar auditorium for (at least) three services every week - "give the money to the poor". Biase!

      I only cited Oyedepo's example so you can see that while people are chanting that the school is this and that there are actually other things that are being done that they dont know. And if he is matching Federal university's standards in staff benefits, he deserves some accolades. Frankly, if we attack and criticize our Government the same way we do the church, Nigeria would be far better place than it is now.

      My point still remains: the church can only do so much. If we have an issue with Nigeria, let us face the Government and give them a piece of our mind about all the things we are unhappy about. The 'kwarapt' church will be the 'kwarapt' church anywhere in the world. The heaven-conscious church will be same too, in any geographical location.

    Social media have a subtle way of putting people under pressure to become what they are not. It is the platform for grand comparison. In fact, some people choose how they live their lives based on the pictures and updates they see on social media.

    And that is not entirely bad, as long as they are aware of how and to what extent, and in what direction the things they see online affect their real lives. It will be good if they have control over how these things affect them.

    Behind all those motivational stories and fine pictures you see on social media are real stories that you don't know.

    Be happy with your own life. Understand that your own situation is unique. And that you may not be able to do what 'everybody' is doing when they are doing it, that your journey is different and that you may be lost if you follow another person's direction out of stupidness, envy or greed.

  10. I met a colleague in the train on 31st night and the following conversation ensued between us.

    Him: Hi, are you going to church?
    Me: no, I'm going home.
    Him: today is crossover. Why are you going home? You're not going to church?
    Me: no, I will pray at home.
    Him: oh, are you sick?
    Me: no, I'm fine. I'm just not going.
    Him: hmmmmmmm.. I will pray for you.

    At this stage I'm already pissed but trying not to show my irritation.

    Me: I will pray for you too.
    Him: no, don't pray for me.
    Me: why?
    Him: because God is not in your home.

    I'm thinking in my head how foolish he sounds but I'm still calm.

    Me: isn't God everywhere?
    Him: true, but you have to go and pray in church.

    I stop talking to him and just keep quiet. Then he asks, obviously still thinking about how sinful I was, lol. "or is it that your church doesn't hold crossover night?"
    Me: no, they don't. (the church I attend is a white church and they even invited threw a new year's eve party that day ��)

    Him: then you would have gone to another church.

    I just stop talking and then tell him," goodbye, happy new year in advance" and I walk away.

    I can hear him from behind me, "don't wish me happy new year" I just smiled and kept walking.

    I'm not saying crossover night in church is bad o, but it's not biblical. At least, I have not read any instances of it in the Bible. Also, if you go and pray your heart out that one night, and for the rest of the year, you are not following God, what is the point? As a matter of fact, I know.people that go for crossover night simply because it's tradition, and after the service, they got he club to dance and fornicate. So I ask again, what's the point?

    The earlier we Christians see Christianity as a relationship with God, a lifestyle, and not a ritual or tradition, the better for us. I went home and it was just me and God, singing, praying, crying, and I enjoyed that fellowship with God.

    May God help us all, Amen.

    1. Nothing biblical about crossover night!
      The church I attend here (even though I am no longer a frequent church goer) doesn't do crossover service.

      It is a Nigerian thing and the so many pentecostal churches took the tradition across the sea and brought it over to Europe, US etc.

      I do not believe in crossover either.
      God is more present in our hearts and home these days.

  33. Good morning all.
    Please I am almost texturizing my hair. HELP!!!
    Back story: My hair is very very thick. Grows extremely fast, looks really good in braids but hell to comb or braid.

    My stylist didnt start off as a natural hair stulist, but she ended up having 95% natural hair clients and she really tries. She says my hair is the toughest she has ever seen. Her heart skips when she sees me.
    Before I bow to pressure and relax or texturise this hair for my sanity. Are there last minute tips? Anything I can buy or do. Please cut off the home remedies, I honestly don't have time.
    I have nurtured a natural hair to perfection before but mine is trying to kill me before my time. The pain I go through every other week in the saloon is enough to kill. It is the type of hair you can flaunt and style but I am too scared to do that cos it might end up turning to stone. Help me ooh! On saturday one of two things will happen😩 I AM TIRED! And I even miss my sleek relaxed hair.πŸ™„

    Chikito and RSQ, please what basic makeup can you recommend for someone that is not into heavy, contouring kind of makeup? What are the basic must haves in a makeup purse?
    Thank you and Happy new year everyone😘😘😘

    6. I used MAZURI ORIGINAL OLIVE OIL CURE PLUS DEEP OIL MOISTURIZER. Each time my hair is naked without braids or weave, I apply it 2-3 times a week. Also you get a spray bottle and pour small water, some quantity of the moisturizer and some coconut oil then shake till it’s well mixed and milk in color then spray ontop your hair and massage down. This this often also. Your diet to has to include a lot of fruits, vegetables and fish. But always have the habit of moisturizing your hair, givebit 1 month and you will start seeing changes.
      For your edges, apply ori round it with or without braids and weave. Ahan, when you have braids on, also use the spray mixture but not to much so your hair doesn’t smell and allow to dry out before packing.

    7. Hehehhe. This natural hair though.... at times it can frustrate someone. I found a new remedy: aloe vera gel (i bought the plant itself), vegetable glycerine (i use the one by mane attraction) and water. I blend (cos of the gel in aloe) and put in a large spray bottle and sprinkle every other day. It keeps my hair soft, moisturizes it and all my shedding disappeared- fiam!! Even under my wigs i use it. In this harmattan it has been my saving grace.

      Do you have a good cream conditioner? Sometimes I wet my hair and just apply conditioner and seal with shea butter. I have not really been focusing on growth, cos my focus has been my edges since one braider dealt with me in may last year. But the hair is growing. So try my soray bottle mix first and see. You hear?

      As for makeup basics, i recommend: brown eye pencil (Davies πŸ™Œ), powder of your choice, (at least) 1 LA girl concealer, get maybelline mouse foundation (its in a small cup) - It gives a very light finish, get like three lipies (nude, red and peachy hues), get liners for each - to give your lips that plump finish, get the 5 basic brush set (usu in a small brush holder), get your eyeliner and (i recommend) Maybelline Kajal for your inner eyes (it doesnt run under). What else? πŸ€” you may need a primer depending on what your skin needs. I have dry skin and I use body shop vit. C sunscreen. Its a great base for my makeup and gives me a dewy finish. For eyeshadow, you can get one or two pallettes with nude hues. There is no rule that says you cant buy your full brush set oh! Trust me its better to have it all. Cos... with a good brush set, even the cheapest makeup will be applied like a pro.

    9. Knowing your hair type is key interms of porosity and strand thickness. Always stretch your hair before going to th salon by plaiting cornrows, big single braids or threading. Loosen it when you get there,use your leavein then sheabutter before combing. Never comb your hair dry without moisturizing first. Sheabutter/Coconut /palm kernel oil helps to retain moisture. Cowashing makes hair softer and if your hair is above awkward length,then part in four ways, detangle and wash each part separately. Have a spritz bottle for daily moisturizing, sleep with a satin/silk bonnet, scarf or pillow. Leaving your hair out an exposing the tips regularly isn't good as it dries up and tangles fast.

      For makeup, Classic or Zaron face definers are simple to use
