TeaMi 30 Day Detox Challenge: Discount Code at the Very End of This Review

I have been catching a slight buzz about TeaMi detox here and there – all over the interwebs and have always wondered what it was about. So I tuned in to my favorite reality show 90 Day Fiancee and followed them to the blogs to catch the latest jist before they trickle down to the TV show and saw a picture of the show’s Molly (whose turbulent relationship with her Dominican Republic born husband Luiz’s on-again, off-again MARRIAGE – sorry guys, I had to scream this just in case they…

Village people, leave us alone na

Are fulani Herdsmen your friend?-www.fifietalkslive.com

Dear African Village People, What exactly is your problem? What is stronging all of you? You are supposed to be the ancestors of everybody African and have a certain air of benevolence towards our good fortune at all times, but your falling of hand is usually epic. When you chook your nose in matters and destinies of your children (and their children’s children down to the fourth generation), it is usually with an air of mischief or like we like to call it – drawing back the hands of the…

Artsy, Provocative, Deep… Adaugo, #Feetfie Queen, is Bae!

To bring back #BaeWatch, we track down quintessential Adaugo (not that she was that hard to find, “track down” just sounds like the super sleuthy thing to say, you know). Adaugo is the queen of smart ripostes and sharp one liners. You read her social media updates sometimes and you just want to sit down with a screw driver, open up that head and try to get an idea of how that mind works. Oh, and did we tell you all she is a… Wait, Let us let her tell…

Watch new action film: Senate versus IGP – Viola Okolie

Are fulani Herdsmen your friend?-www.fifietalkslive.com

“Viola, be a woman of your words”, my mother scolded me. “If you know you do not plan to take any disciplinary action against this girl, stop announcing it and threatening her if not, she will learn not to take you serious”. That was my mother chiding me during the early days of struggling to raise my daughter. She would watch my daughter push my boundaries several times and me trying to regain control of the situation, would scold: “If you don’t leave that thing alone now, I will smack…

Are Fulani Herdsmen Your Friend? -Viola Okolie

Are fulani Herdsmen your friend?-www.fifietalkslive.com

If Fulani Herdsmen and Boko Haram were to suddenly converge upon your hamlet at the same time and by some quaint stroke of luck, the herdsmen were able to overcome Boko Haram, would you then be safe to assume that Fulani Herdsmen are your friends? If Nigerian police, on the other hand, were to chance upon a rampaging band of Boko Haramists tearing your village apart; and by some strange stroke of luck, the Nigerian police were fully and better armed, and didn’t need you to roger for fuel first,…

A love letter to President Buhari – Viola Okolie

viola okolie

Dear President Buhari, I woke up this morning with a lot on my mind and just as I was about to pour my mind out on paper, my head said to me: “Viola, wakanda person are you? Are you alright? Are you tired of foraging for fuel like a hungry pack rat just emerging from the gutters? Is it that you don’t want to stay alive for a few more years at least, to be cursing Fashola anytime he flashes you light? Wakanda this? Taaaa!” So, I listened to my…

My verdict on Uche Taxify vs Dorcas OAP – Viola Okolie

viola okolie

When I worked in banking, I had this boss who later resigned and took up appointment as Minister of State for…… Enhen. So, this boss of mine, used to have a highly efficient secretary whose name was “Helen”. After a while, she left the bank for greener pastures and this man was left to struggle with incompetence and people who took forever to adjust to his ways. Consequently, every efficient female he came across, irrespective of your function or department, was referred to as, “Helen”. And we obliged him because…

#BuhariTillInfinity – Viola Okolie

viola okolie

A few weeks before the 2015 general elections, I sat out to unwind with a few friends with whom I had a shared passion for the outcome of the polls and as we chatted, our discussion veered towards the elections and I expressed a hidden desire sometimes, for a Buhari win. Why? My friends asked, wondering if I had suddenly turned fifth columnist in their midst, but I assured them that that was far from reality. We had done everything humanly possible to convince people that Buhari was not an…

Dear Nigerian parents; you are all corrupt – Viola Okolie

viola okolie

If you are a Nigerian parent, prepare for a date with the EFCC soon – you are all kwarrupt. The other day, I was at a  friend’s house when her four year old son ran out of his room with a “packed” bag containing the approximation of his life’s belongings as follows: One plate and spoon – for mixing golden morn sturvs. The top half of his pyjamas. Two left legs from what appeared to be his favourite pairs of shoes. His pencil and eraser. One pair of dirty underpants,…
