So like iwas gonna say! Who said there is no talent? Fortunately someone asked me today that how bad is it not to have talent and i said “everybody is made to have one and not discovering it and exploring it is very bad”.

He thinks i was just being philosophical…. That’s a story for another day! Now check this amazing video

SIN CITY

Leave a comment


A kingdom of kings denied their crowns
And wise men are treated as clowns
Fools approved judgement to decide
The poor are left to float in the tide

Day and night we suffer and smile
A defect long endured becomes a style
We put our hopes in a counterfeit hero
And now our joy is back to zero

They tell us lies in form of budgets
Increase fuel price our only nugget
They pass their wealth from son to son
Their bloody seats are good for none

We asked for good they gave us luck
A programme designed to rid their mock
Justice delayed is justice denied
When and how will wisdom be applied?

Fight we shall till our last blood shed
We sing the songs of our heroes past
Like sheep to the slaughter we will not be led
Every tear every breath will linger till its last!!!

God likes me… by DEOLA MATEMILOLA

14 Comments


A friend once asked me “Adeola, do you think God likes you?” I laughed at what seemed to me a silly question and replied, “of course, God loves everybody” She smiled at my naivete and gently assured me that Yes God loves everybody but just like a father who doesn’t stop loving his son when the little boy does something wrong, God stops liking us until we apologize for those wrongs we do and that those special ones that God likes are His real children. Hmm… (Food for thought) I take a lot of trips, mostly by road and not once did I think about an accident, to me it seemed like something that happened to other people, I see accident sites all the time, I feel sorry for the people involved and hope nobody died there but that’s the extent to which it used to touch me. As I sit here tonight and think about the number of times I shuttled between Abuja and Ilorin without any thought at all, I realize that I have indeed been extremely lucky, an almost 10hour trip that came to mean absolutely nothing to me, I began to take for granted more and more how it’s GOD who keeps me and it’s not just because its my right. This notion came to be corrected during my NYSC year, I was involved in an accident less than 1hour into a 4hour journey; I was reading a novel, starting to feel sleepy, beginning to settle into a comfortable position to continue reading my novel and thereafter fall asleep, I looked at my neighbor and thought to myself what an idiot he must be for wearing dark shades in an already dark bus, I looked at the young pregnant girl in front of me and wondered if she was married or just got knocked up. I thought about my friends with whom I should have traveled had I arrived at the park earlier and I smiled to myself imagining how I’d make sure they apologized very well for abandoning me. Now I can only say thank God they had gone with the bus they went with! They say when you’re about to die, you see images of various stages of your life flash before you, I didn’t see that, in fact my one single fleeting thought was how my family and my friends were going to know my body was there and even that just came to me as “how will they know?” after that nothing! Not fear! Not pain! Nothing! In fact, when the bus tire busted and the driver stepped on the brake and swerved off the road, I immediately thought “he shouldn’t have done that” and then I closed my novel and waited. While the bus was somersaulting, my mind was completely blank, I was resigned! And then when the bus stopped on its roof and I broke out of my trance as a young lady was scrambling out through a window, my first thought was “I hope my Blackberry’s okay” LMAO, how funny is that? In the midst of all that?! I was the 2nd person out so that means there were still 10 people in there and I completely blocked them out and focused on the”health” of my BB. Incredulous! Even more incredible, I was probably the only person in the bus who didn’t have an open flesh wound.

I decided to write this article from my experience at the NYSC Orientation camp because I don’t want prospective Corp Members facing the same kind of hardship I faced before gaining my balance, even though I had lots of friends who are corp members.

Requirements for Registration

Registration is the first and most important thing at the orientation camp, just like at any other place. At the registration point, you are expected to provide the following things:

1. Your final year Student ID card

2. Notification of Result from your School

3. 16 Passport Photographs
4. Your original call-up letter5. Medical certificate or marriage certificate and evidence of change of name. (If you want to apply for re deployment)
Note: you should make at least 10 copies of each.

The forms that will be handed to you are quite easy to fill. Patiently, fill them correctly and attach your passport photographs where required. After registration, you will be issued with your State Code Number, this will be like your PIN throughout your Service Year.

After you have been given your State Code number, you should proceed straight to collect your mattress and your NYSC Kit. During my own time, I collected my bed space before doing my registration and that was my escape from sleeping outside that first night.
This may not be necessary though depending on what state you have been posted to and the number of corps members.
This is because some states have a higher frequency of corp members than others for example Lagos state and Abuja have the highest number of corps members at any given time and you cannot compare these to states like Benue or Yobe.

Personal Needs for NYSC Camp Life

A lot of newly mobilized corps members wonder what to buy and pack for camp when they receive call up letters. Most however pack the wrong items either due to lack of information or wrong perception of their needs.

First, especially for the guys who can’t hold themselves;GET A CONDOM

PREFERABLY ABSTAIN! You’ll meet a lot of crazy guys and gals in camp ready to get down not minding you cash or status but there friends, 3weeks ain too much for you to stay away!

Throughout your stay at the orientation camp, you will only be allowed to wear white t-shirts and shorts; you might not like the ones that will be given to you on camp so you can get those fitted LUX and CHASE DEER brands as long as they are white, your jungle boot and white tennis shoes will be given to you on camp as well; you might also not like it or you might be given one that’s either too big or too small so its advisable to buy a fancy one along (White). You should take 1 or 2 mufti for mosque or church service.

NOTE 1: A list of camp requirements is written at the back of your call up letter so this could also be a guide.

NOTE 2 : Make sure you take extra white t-shirts and shorts to Camp because (1) they are very expensive at the Camp Market called MAMI MARKET (2) you will most likely not have time to wash during the week, you might also be too tired after going through all the Military Parades and Man O War Drills.
So except you are on a camp where wash-men services are available, you might just have to wait until the weekends to wash your whites.

You will also need a waist pouch to keep your valuables and personal items like cash, phones, flashlights, stationary (pen, stapler, gum, small notebook etc)

DO NOT take materials like pressing iron, knife, fork, tin cutter or any kinds of sharp objects to the camp. They will be seized and returned to you only on the last day of camp. This is a security measure.

If you have a camera you can take it along because you will want to take a lot of pictures and it might be too expensive to make use of the camp photographers all the time.
If you have a Blackberry phone, that’s good for you because you can easily share on social networks|(but then be careful).
If you don’t have any of those and want pictures of all your camp activities, you will probably have to pay some camp photographers to follow you around and snap you wherever you go. They might charge up to N2000 for the duration of the camp. They would then give you all your photos and videos in CDs at the end of Camp.

You will be fed three times a day in camp, but the food is barely edible, I tell you the truth. Most of the time at least, they can be nice on few occasions, I think (that’s my own opinion though). If you are someone like me who loves to eat good food, make provisions for your own food. You should get some provision to take along; cereals and beverages, garri, biscuits etc. You should also hold extra cash to eat at the Mami market, you will get good food there and won’t spend much to eat well, the price however depends on the state to which you have been posted.

Other things you could need are mosquito nets, bed sheets, pillow, cover cloth, bucket, bailer, drinking cup/water bottle, plate/food flask, plastic spoon and camphor. To stay clean and healthy, please buy dettol or izal. Use bar soaps and not detergent to wash clothes in order to save water, and maybe extensions to make charging your phones easier but there are places available where you can charge your batteries at the camp market.

You would also need sunglasses, cardigan, slippers, potty (if you don’t want to share toilet) and toilet paper.

And girls try not to go with heavy or synthetic hair to avoid excess heat and time to care for it, my time, i did a very simple brush able style which lasted me three weeks, braids is also advisable, don’t do lace wig or even fringe.

Taking Brazilian hair to camp without it being on your head is a risk worth not taking.

Pocket Money: The question is “How much money do you really need for the NYSC Orientation Course?.” I remember writing to my uncle, asking him to send me some money for my NYSC Orientation Course; guess what his reply was…. Ajoke (my native name) you don’t need much money for your NYSC orientation course, you will be paid a N1, 500 allowance once you arrive the NYSC camp and also another one (first ALLAWI) after 3 to 4 days on camp… first I felt bad at his reply but later saw the truth in his words, even though he later sent me N19, 000. Based on my experience, about N10,000 to N15,000 should see you through the camp period if you spend modestly, even if you do not eat the kitchen food at all, but if you intend to drink and hang out at the Mami market, then you can take more money depending on how much you can finish, be wise though!

So far, these are the major things you will need to make the best out of your stay in camp. Any other thing that is not listed above can be found in the MAMMY MARKET…always remember that MAMMY MARKET is HOT in FIRE……

I will be here waiting to see you again with your comments and experiences on camp.

Till then wishing you a successful NYSC YEAR
may you all go and come in peace and not in pieces.

AND SHE LIVES…

Its so amazing the number of calls, texts, emails,  and PINGS I have gotten since the beginning of this series. I am grateful but you have to admit, if I had written all in one piece, it would have been incredibly long, besides I didn’t get the entire story in one day, this all happened over a period and I want you to live this period with our brave heroine. I know though that the main question on everybody’s mind is simply “did she survive?” And to answer that and put your minds at ease – Yes, she did. Another question you could be asking is “did her suffering end or did she continue to live her life between her house and hospital wards?”… To get the answer to this though, you have to continue reading…

This time, I got the rest of the story from her mother, in her own words… It showed me very clearly her own fears n suffering through her daughter’s suffering, at one point, it almost looked like she went through so much more and I certainly couldn’t have imagined it if I hadn’t gotten these words from her.

…Finally, I could let out a sigh of relief, I was so happy; we had finally found a solution. I remembered to shower at night as my beloved daughter was sleeping with no fear, I said my prayers, thanked God and went to sleep with my heart still crying out in absolute joy and thankfulness.

I slept peacefully for the first time in as long as I could remember; I slept so well, I actually had a dream. I woke up at 9:14am, Yes 9:14am, I remember exactly because I jumped up in alarm, thinking to myself what a bad mother I was, my daughter should have taken her drugs at 6:45am! I ran to her room as fast as I could and then ran back out with even more speed, for on my daughter’s bed, I saw a green swollen human, I called out to my neighbors…I dialed as many numbers as I could…I screamed for everyone to come and see this strange thing I was seeing. Of course I couldn’t admit it was my daughter, not even to myself because my daughter was a fair slim girl. There was absolutely no way this creature could be my daughter. I am thankful to people around who could think straight because I was completely handicapped by my fear and disbelief…”How could this have happened?” I kept wondering. She was taken into the bathroom, she was sweating and not breathing, they poured water on her head and she started coughing and for the first time – Blood.

We rushed to the hospital and she was taken into the emergency ward, her personal doctor wasn’t around but other doctors attended to her, within hours she came back to life with tears in her eyes and requested for food. For the first time in months, my daughter requested for food, I was told to give her anything that could be easily digested. I asked why her skin was green and was told that they were still running tests to determine exactly what it was but she would be fine, I didn’t believe them but I believed in God. I sat by her bed, holding her hand and praying non-stop, she would wake up at intervals shaking and crying and they said it was rigor. Various injections were administered at intervals.

Finally, there was one last test to run and they required sputum but my daughter wasn’t producing any, waiting for this, we had already been at the hospital for 3 weeks, the rigor was subsiding but there was still no sputum. The doctors informed me that if there was no progress in another five days, they might have to operate. At that point, I was ready for anything they could do to make my daughter feel better because I was tired of seeing her in that condition. I was finally convinced to go home to freshen up and rest a while after I had been with her at the hospital for 3 weeks.

Another week passed and still she didn’t produce any sputum but my God was with me and finally the rigor stopped. I fed my daughter with coconut and everything I could think of that could induce cough so that she would produce sputum but it was all to no avail. At this point, we had spent 2months in the hospital in a private ward where we paid so much money per day but we had help from friends, family and charities to keep up with the bills, infact one of the doctors also helped by conducting free tests.

ATLAST, we were moved to the general ward and the surgery was scheduled for a date about 6 days from then, I didn’t tell my daughter though because I knew she would be afraid and I just didn’t have the heart to add to all the burdens she already carried on her so-young shoulders. Surprisingly however, on the 5th day, she called to me and said “I think I just coughed out large blood-clotted sputum”… I had never been happier to see some disgusting sputum in my entire life, I cried out in joy, hugged her and ran to call the doctor, the test was finally carried out and with the results, she was asked to stop some of the drugs she had been taking and a few others prescribed.

She was  discharged after another week and we went home, my daughter was now fully well and could cook for me, eat whatever she liked and go where ever she wanted without an inhaler or anything but she was on drugs for 9months… It’s now been 3 years since she’s encountered any of those symptoms and she still goes for regular check-ups.

I took her back to our old doctor with her results and prescriptions just to let him know my daughter is fine.

She has since had no attacks or major illness and she’s back to being the strongest amongst her peers… …

hmm at long last, this young girl now a lady, is fine and healthy but in my intention to avoid further mistakes if not by all quacks but by the few I know, I went to the hospital with threats and they were able to fish out where the problem was it was the technician who got names wrong and also no serious cross- checks from the doctors.

I requested they pay a visit to the home and will do further investigation as how to make them pay back some money.

 

Watch out for more stories on the big apple but remember; we are all MADE…

VALENTINE…

Hmm what is valentine sef? All you people making a big deal out of it, do you know the meaning? But can you blame them ni? it’s been abused from the moment a mother won’t even show love to her offspring, a man forgetting the reason he proposed to his wife and girls and boys turning it to a business of exchange… but truly, valentine is a time of love,a time to share, to hold, to receive and to give.

Valentine! Valentine! Valentine! What a day! Many will be INFECTED, ENGAGED, LOVED, DISSAPOINTED, PROMISED & SO ON AND SO FORTH…..

“INFECTED” Such is the story of a Titilayo, a young woman of about 25. Titilayo had travelled to the UK for her masters degree in the summer of Last year. She left home and her wonderful boyfriend, Victor with whom she had a lasting 3-year old relationship. Titilayo decided to come home just before valentines and dreamt of how pleasant it would be to surprise victor on the 14th with a visit without his prior knowledge. She planned her arrival for the 12th of February. When she returned, of course she didn’t call victor, rather, she appeared at victor’s place on valentines day. Needless to say, they were both happy and overjoyed; got ‘down’ and had a marvellous time. After sex, they lay in bed naked and, Titilayo confessed to victor amidst tears of happiness that she never cheated on him throughout the time she was in the UK. Victor was so happy to have Titilayo in his arms and re-affirmed he had been committed to her by telling her he never had sex in her absence. Titilayo chose to believe him because she was frightened.  Knowing very well her boyfriend was a play boy, it would kill her to inquire and discover he was unfaithful.  In the end they both agreed she moved in with him. Three months passed and Titilayo was offered a job in a multinational. She went for some compulsory medicals only to discover she was HIV positive. She was INFECTED‼!

ENGAGED… is that of a wonderful friend of mine who will today, by love’s grace, become engaged. Infact, looking at the ring, I can’t but wish it was mine (yes na, me sef wan engage lol). He’s going to do it in a very special way, I just hope he doesn’t cry and I hope she does cry just to fulfil my own fairy tale kind of proposal sha. Jealousy will fill the eyes of her friends while his friends would ask questions like ‘is he truly ready?’ And all, but they WILL be ENGAGED :p

LOVED… Hmm… well, who wouldn’t want to be loved if we truly are ready to give it back. There are a lot of children who wish they had a mother, a father, or at least a sibling L They hope that one day, even if for just a few hours, they can feel what I feel for my mum and what you feel for yours. Well, today, some of them will have their prayers answered as you and I or some of us will go visiting them, giving out what we can, holding their hands and telling them it’s going to be alright… On a more personal note, I’m willing to show some love to my very own mum today by cooking her a special meal 🙂 and I’m sure that so many of you will be giving me gifts ( I hope *wink*). Eateries will be filled with so much love in the air as the movies will make extra money, some will be shown on the bed and others will be shared with the family we LOVE. ❤

DISAPPOINTED… This is d funniest of all as the sad and lonely already do not expect anything and would try as much to remain sad or enjoy the day like me am doing (not sad sha). So many people will sleep with disappointments in their hearts and minds today, not that I’m wishing anyone bad but it’s the fact. Not all ’cause they were dumped but some ’cause of work, some cashless, but some just ’cause they expect too much. A friend of mine, (am sure she’s reading this) said she’s been saving up for today to get her boyfriend a sports shoe ’cause he’s a baller and that cost her $475! Hmm… am so ‘in-between’ as the guy coincidentally called me that he’s not sure he’s getting his girlfriend anything because he doesn’t trust her. Knowing well that he might be right, I still encouraged him to make her happy. Trust me, she’s doing it as an investment though (lips sealed). Well, aside this backbiting story, many people will be disappointed because the guy has to share his budget between 3 girls so that they all can get their expected wish.

PROMISING… is that duo who are not of today but who share and experience love everyday. They have and will share together as one, so do not expect anything from each other but get there heart-filled with joy and happiness. They are not head over heels worried about the 14th of February because the love they share is forever and PROMISING…

AND MANY, MANY MORE things will happen today, for the accomplished that will get their gifts, the cheats that will scale through the obstacles, and the ones that know their place in each other’s hearts. But, most of all my dear readers, today is all about love not relationships, it’s about giving, receiving and sharing, you DON’T have to squeeze yourselves dry to satisfy that partner. If you are truly loved, whatever you give will be appreciated. Do not wait for particular dates to give gifts, always show love anytime and anyday.

May we experience MANY MORE of today…

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY… and remember to use condom 😉
