I have heard a lot of Doyin, I don’t read your blog because you say it’s for Gen Zs’ Wait, What? Why? Saying the blog is for Gen Zs is to Niche Down, my good people. Also, the blog has been read by a lot of people before it became a bit audience-specific. Truthfully, many times, I know you are interested in the topics because they concern you but once you see Gen Z your mind is closed to it. But do you know whether you are Gen Z or not? Let’s start from there. Quick Differences Between Millenials and Gen Zs Photo by Joshua Mcknight on Pexels.com Generation Z (Gen Z) refers to people born from 1997 to 2012. millennials are born from 1980 t0 1996. Although some experts extend it to 2000. It is not an age grouping but a year of birth grouping. If you check it through,…

Whether or not you want to accept it, the 25 year benchmark exists. at this stage, you have just begun a Quarter-Life Crisis. Who names these things right? 😂 Personally, I affirm that I’ll not experience anything like a crisis. However, there is this pressure that exists at that stage. You think about what your life will be, plans goals, the achievable and almost unachievable. This is not to scare you, though. For me, I still have a couple of years before I hit the big 25. I am sure you have the saying that “a fool at forty is a fool forever”; I’ll like to add what the world has for 25. A fool at 25 will most likely be a fool at forty and then a fool forever. Crazy dynamics, right? Marriage Before and After The 25 Year Benchmark Photo by Andres Ayrton on Pexels.com While thinking about…

With everything that has been going on since the beginning of the year till now, let’s just say now that life is not short, time too isn’t. But, it is time that accounts most for what we do with our lives. It is time that matters. No one knows when theirs would run out. Life and time are embedded in each other. Time is fleeting, Time flies, Time waits for no man, time is short, it is brief, it is unpredictable etc. You can always tell what time it is but you can’t tell what happens next unless of course, you are gifted with that ability. It is what you do with the little time that matters and counts. But then, time isn’t time for everyone. It is not the same thing. TIME IS NOT EQUAL. READ: DON’T WAIT, ACT NOW! Imagine every CEO has a lot of staff to…

The UN set a day to celebrate mother tongue. So, quick question, do you speak your mother tongue? Or do you know what it means to do so? When a lot of people are still disagreeing as to what mother tongue even means. UN World’s Mother Language Day. I am interested in this particular topic because it concerns and affects me a lot. Truly and of a fact, one’s language is their identity and shapes one’s mind or world view. There is no contesting that. I have met a lot of people who are like, ‘You are from where?’ Me, ‘Kwara’. ‘Oh, so, you are Yoruba?’ And then, they switch immediately to continue the conversation in Yoruba and when I reply in English. The expression on their face is utter shock and every other thing that follows I am used to already. The why’s, the blame game, the losing our culture talk, comparing to…

On the blog today, I’d be sharing Unpopular Opinion(s) on Feminism, this is one long topic that cannot be finished. What do you think about feminism? Are we derailing from the course? Are we still on the path? Is there a gender unbalance? Are males now at a loss or what? One would wonder why we need to just classify things in this world. We apply characteristics to everything and just create stereotypes but then are we not all like our father, Adam. We give names, classify and categorize. It didn’t start with us and definitely, it won’t stop. Now, every group is fighting to be heard across tribes, age groups, religions and most silent but salient, gender. But then, didn’t God say He’d create us in His own likeness, male and female? At the end of creation, didn’t He confirm that it was all good after looking at everything?…

LET’S START THIS STORY FROM HERE… My NYSC pre camp experience started way back before university. Crazy right? Back when I was little and young, I always admired anyone I saw putting on NYSC uniform, the entirety of the khaki (even in part). Left to me, every year would another set of teachers that we would call corpers. They will take us subjects in school; some would later become private lesson teachers. It was fun seeing them acting new, the town strange to them, talking about how new everything was to them, their university experience and how they are now serving et cetera et cetera. We too, we’d listen to social studies, government and history lessons on how NYSC was created by Gowon, Civil War and the likes… Meanwhile, I was just waiting to enter university, graduate and go and serve Nigeria somewhere. If someone had seen my thoughts and told me…

I will be doing this on the basis of relocation. So, I finally got Oyo state. Whilst others were on their way to their various PPAs, I, alongside some others, began another journey to another state. Not to mention the shock on a lot of faces as they began seeing their various LGAs and PPAs and states for those of us who relocated. Yobe was fun. It is cool and beautiful but it’s not meant for me. Read: MY NYSC CAMP EXPERIENCE At least as compensation, during my clarion tour, I got to see a lot of places and I travelled as many as 9 states.Before you decide to relocate make sure you have a PPA in mind or somewhere at least that is sure. Otherwise, be prepared for NYSC to post you as usual. It was quite strange moving around the NYSC secretariat with relocation letter while others had…

Eventually, I got posted to Yobe State. Tell me about the power of the tongue or rather the hand. I went ofF obeying the clarion call on a clarion tour. In other news, everything you must have heard about camp is true. INTENSELY TRUE. But, some things are overexaggerated though. DEALING WITH THE SHOCK OF POSTING. That very day I logged in to my portal, looked around then logged out. 5 minutes later, people were sending in screenshots of their state of deployment. NYSC, why? Wrong timing. I couldn’t log in again due to traffic network issues. Eventually, I was able to check and discovered I had been deployed to Yobe State, I was shocked. I had already been so sure I was going to Oyo State. To think I had already been making fun of people deployed to Taraba, Gombe… after all the mouth I had made to my…

Our society has been programmed in a way that anything contrary to opinion is unpopular.You know you just have to be a man. In everything you do, the way you think, talk, walk, in everything. Just don’t be slow or feminine, appear delicate or fragile. We have been programmed in a way that we just have to believe that men just have to be men. But then, what does that mean to be a man? In being a man, the masculine gender has to be viewed as being strong, brave, unyielding, relentless, sacrificing, providing, et cetera. The man should not be weak at any point. BOYS TO MEN. Boys should grow to be men. So, the qualities of being a man should be instilled in them as they are growing each passing day. They should be watching and learning from established men, people who have gotten the stamp of recognition…

There is so much hysteria when it comes to travelling out. Most people don’t even waste time to think about it, some people have never even thought about it. When the opportunity presents itself they are quick to jump at it. Not that I’m against travelling abroad but I want to see reasons to stay here, I’d love to travel out and just have fun. A permanent stay would depend on a lot. Here are 11 reasons why I’d rather stay in Nigeria. Note that they are strictly personal and are likely to change. Can we leave by road? If we can’t, I’d stay back. No means of transportation is safe but some are at higher risk than others. Still, prefer road than you know, air accidents or being in a ship. I can’t do 1-month travel so I don’t want road either. I have heard that the most dangerous…
