Healthy Lifestyle | The Teami

I started the #TeamiTea journey as a way to get rid of the bloating. Apparently, it did more than that. I still have lots and lots of idi araba all over the place so maybe when it gets to idimorta levels, I’ll share pictures but… My mum insists I am shrinking. I look at pictures of my face and can’t believe the shrink. A friend also came calling yesterday, someone who had scoffed at the tea when I first showed her and was like “woooooow, what’s the name of that program you…

Men are scum… except for Dangote and Otedola

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

Confusion is an average Nigerian woman. First, we all pretend to know what we want; then we realize that what we want may not really be what we want as in: it was what we wanted a few minutes ago, until we realized that if we actually got what we wanted, we may end up not needing it as badly as we wanted it so we have kukuma decided we do not want it again and if anybody calls us on our double standards, we will bite he/she/it/she(m). Case in…

Nigerians, please leave ‘wicked people’ alone

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

Fellow Nigerians, See ehn, YOU are the reason why we have stingy and tight-fisted Nigerians who would rather go and bury their money in a soakaway pit than be found “helping” any other Nigerian. Perhaps the day of reckoning has come and it is time we tell ourselves the truth. YOU are the reason why every time a Nigerian is stopped at the borders of other countries, they are subjected to a thorough body cavity search and made to recite the Handel’s Messiah and Miranda Codes backwards – before they…

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…
