Nigerian Girl gets dumped by boyfriend after bleaching to satisfy him

Nigerian Girl gets dumped by boyfriend after bleaching to satisfy him

A Nairaland user, AlihKizito posted this story not too long ago...it's something ladies can learn from!

Nigerian girls could be so silly (apologies to good girls in this forum). How will you describe the stupidity of the lady in this story. Let me quote it as I got it from her friend.

My name is Ladi and my friend is in a dilemma now. She is living in shock of the reality that her 8 months boyfriend just dumped her for “not being the kind of fair he wants.” She once told me that her boyfriend told her that it wouldn’t be bad for her to be a little lighter because he feels he is often attracted to light skinned ladies.

I discouraged her from bleaching her skin and she told me I would not understand what dark skinned ladies like her go through. I told her that if a guy doesn’t like her the way she is, then he doesn’t deserve her. 

But when I returned from a trip after 5 weeks, my friend had changed completely from the dark coloured lady she used to be to a light skinned lady; even lighter than I am.
Now she is telling me that Johnson has dumped her and told her he feels embarrassed walking side by side with her and that she has a particular odour he can’t stand.

She said he told her all these and many more to her face after he had been avoiding her and refusing to pick her call, till she eventually tracked him down to ask what was wrong with their relationship.

I really want to help her but she doesn’t want to move on and is blaming herself for using cheap cream instead of bleaching like a big girl. Please my fellow people, what do I tell her to get her out of this mess.

Monalisa Chinda opens up on the challenges of being a single mum & beef with Rita Dominic

Monalisa Chinda opens up on the challenges of being a single mum & beef with Rita Dominic

Monalisa Chinda in a chat with Punch revealed that she is open to love and marriage as she had always wanted more children.

Though she loves being a mother, being a single one can be challenging. The actress was once married to ex, Segun Dejo-Richards who is now remarried five years after their split.
If she is open to getting married again,
I love the whole concept and idea of love. I am open to love and marriage that would work. Marriage is always a better option and I love to be loved. I hope to have more children because I had always wanted to have three children. Three is just perfect but it depends. I can never go back to my ex-husband but we maintain a cordial relationship because he is the father of my child. He speaks to his child whenever he wants to.
On how challenging it is being a single mum
Motherhood has been very lovely but being a single mother has been very challenging. There is a huge difference between being a mother and being a single mom. When you are a single mom, you have to do everything yourself, you have to be the mother, father, driver, teacher, name it. If you don’t have a help, you have to switch on the generator, drop and pick the child from school; it is crazy. You have to help her with her homework and if I have to travel, I would have to bribe my secretary to stay in my house for some nights so that she can help my daughter with her homework. It is a lot of mental work. I have got used to it and if I don’t take care of my daughter, nobody will do it for me.
Addressing the rumours of beef between herself and Rita Dominic
Rita Dominic and I are not at loggerheads. We just drifted apart and she is still my sister. We went to the same school. I do not think that anybody should have a permanent enemy or a permanent friend. As you grow up in this big industry, your interests start to differ and that is just what happened.

How Rotimi Amaechi, Debola Williams & Chude Jideonwo convinced Buhari to wear a suit for the first time

How Rotimi Amaechi, Debola Williams & Chude Jideonwo convinced Buhari to wear a suit for the first time

When President Buhari wore a suit for his first campaign shoot last year, some Nigerians were quick to mock him while others praised him for the dapper look.

Just so you know, that's the first and probably the last time Buhari will dress that way!

Well that's according to Rotimi Amaechi.

Buhari
How Rotimi Amaechi, Debola Williams & Chude Jideonwo convinced Buhari to wear a suit for the first time

Speaking at the red summit gala which held at the Harbor point, off Ahmadu Bello way, Victoria Island Lagos last night, the APC lord told a story of how he got Red media (Debola Williams and Chude Jideonwo) to handle the election campaign for Buhari.

"Buhari said to me, do we have to do all these paparazzi, Amaechi you know my nature but i said him, sir you have to wear this suit so that Nigerians can see the handsome side of you. Wee had to convince him and then he finally obliged us and today, that photoshoot is still the best he has ever had. We were able to present the other side of the president that most people did not know...most peeps didn't know he can laugh but we brought out that side of him. 

On behalf of the campaign and Buhari, i thereby appreciate Debola Williams and Chude Jideonwo for their hard work and achieving a feat that many thought they couldn't achieve. When i gave the job to them,  took a risk. Why? There was a company from America, another from Britain that wanted to do this job and handle the campaign for us but i wanted these young men to do it and i was ready to take the risk, fail or succeed with them and look where we are. 

Yes God won the election for us but used them and Nigerians." he said.

Julius Agwu mocks Nigerian Pastors & the witches/wizards that endorsed Goodluck Jonathan

Julius Agwu mocks Nigerian Pastors & the witches/wizards that endorsed Goodluck Jonathan

So last night, Comedian Julius Agwu took a swipe at the Nigerian Pastors that tried to convince Nigerians to vote for former president Goodluck Jonathan in the past election.

While addressing guests at the red summit gala which held at the Harbor point, off Ahmadu Bello way, Victoria Island Lagos last night, he had this to say.

"I know how many Nigerian Pastors are paid to pray for GEJ to make sure he came back as president, but their prayers were not answered."

He further said "Moreover, why was it mostly witches association that were endorsing him?
The so-called assocation of withes and wizards kept saying orishiriishi, claiming that GEJ is their man and that he will be the president but God pass them"

Moving on, he said "Please help tell president Buhari not to joke with this God that got him to the throne. As a matter of fact, we need to discard the first verse of the National anthem and stick with just the second stanza. We have been singing 'Arise o compatriots' for many years now but the compatriots are not arising biko... let us stick with stanza two 'O God of creation, direct our noble cuase'... let us be lik the Americans whose theme reads 'In God we trust'. That theme is really working for them despite all the bad things they do"

Rotimi Amaechi, Fayemi, Oby Ezekwesili were some of the dignitaries on seat while Julius cracked the jokes.

Open Heavens 17 October 2015: Saturday daily devotion by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Carriers of Blessings

Open Heavens 17 October 2015: Saturday daily devotion by Pastor E. A. Adeboye


Memorise: Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:5
Read: Genesis 21:1-6 (KJV)

1 And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken.

2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.

3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.

4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him.

5 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.

6 And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.

Bible in one Year: Numbers 23:12-25:18, 2 Corinthians 12

MESSAGE:

When adults and parents are stained with sin or have become preoccupied with the affairs of life, God may speak to them through their children. This was exactly what happened to Eli (1 Samuel 3:1-10).One reason why children are such powerful weapons in God’s hands in their innocence. Because they are not yet accustomed to sin, when they pray, God answers their prayers. Several years ago, when my children were still very young, anytime I needed something from God so desperately, I asked them to pray for me, and I got answers.

Sin separates us from God, so that it becomes difficult for Him to hear us when we call upon Him (Isaiah 59:1-2). Sin can stop the prayers of the elderly, but children on the other hand are innocent. You will notice that when it is time to praise God, they do so without any inhibition. When they dance before God, they are not self-conscious like the adults. They do not care who is looking at them. They dance for God anyhow, and God is glorified. Therefore, when they cry to God, their angels take their prayers right before God and the answer comes back speedily. Because of this, Psalm 127:5 says the man who has his quiver full of children is happy, blessed, fortunate and to be envied. If you do not have any child yet, the Lord will remember you this season. If you have one or two but you want more, the Lord will answer you speedily.

Moreover, children are carriers of blessings, and they can bring an end to an era of sorrow. Whenever they go, they take blessings along with them. For instance, when Isaac was born, the sorrow in the hearts of his parents was terminated. Also, after Samuel was born, the mouths of mockers who had made life miserable for his mother were shut (1 Samuel 2:1-10). Children can permanently shut the mouth of mockers! Has the absence of children in your home brought you sorrow? That sorrow shall be taken away this season! Have tongues been mocking you all along? The Lord will shock your mockers and silence them permanently this season. Give your life to Christ if you have not already done so, and submit yourself to God. Take time and pleasure in doing the things that make Him happy. Give Him quality praise, thanks and worship always, and He will surprise you.

Prayer Point: Father, by the Blood of Jesus, frustrates every plan of the enemy to initiate our children into satanic cults and associations.

Open Heavens Daily Devotional guide was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer's Ministries.
