They Hypnotized Her.

Hypnotism is real!

I've watched some videos online. All sorts of hypnotism, some even end up on porn sites...

But let me get back on track. Hypnotism. 

Nigerians do it too. But instead of using our "Jazz" for better something, we must sha use it for bad. 

And so yesterday my sister's help said she felt something press against her back and she pretty much blanked out after that. They asked her to bring her ATM, asked for the pin (they withdrew most of her cash, because she didn't tell us on time that they'd been withdrawing her money, it's only earlier today we were able to go to the bank to have her card blocked). They took her phone and the little cash she had on her. And then she also cleared out my sister's jewelry and wristwatches. 

The only reason I'm writing this lightheartedly is that my sister keeps most of her gold or other expensive jewelry at the bank not at home. So the maid gave them about two sets of gold, a gold bracelet, and then costume jewelry. The two watches were quite expensive too but not expensive enough to cry over. I guess we're all just grateful that the heavy stuff are kept safely at the bank. 

My sister is a lot luckier that my friend's Mum. Sometime last year in Lekki phase 1... Mama had quite a lot at home. They maid gave the 419ers mama's $10,000, £8,000, diamond jewelry worth hundreds of thousands of dollars (which the idiots probably sold for 20,000 naira😐), GOLDDDDDDDDDDDDD, and a few million nairas. 

Now you may be wondering why there was so much at home. It's a police family (Daddy was way up in the NPF) and the residence is fully guarded 24-7 with armed security. As such the residents believed that their properties were safe and secure. So this maid who'd been working with them for years and had never once stolen and had become a part of the family, seemingly posed no threat. 

It seems everyday in Lagos we here about how someone's maid, and sometimes, child, was touched by a strange person on the road and suddenly went home to cart all the valuables!

True confession, it happened me too when I was a teen. I went home to bring my mum's gold and nearly broke down her wardrobe when I saw that it was locked. Failing, I picked some costume jewelry she left on her dresser and some lose change around the house, about 100 bucks. Needless to say, I was bad market 😂😂😂. Those guys faces would have made a perfect billboard for disappointment when I handed them the loot. 

But hypnotism goes way beyond what these local 419ers do in Nigeria... It's very wide and diverse

My aunty, for instance. She used to be a chronic smoker, the type that'd do 2 or 3 packs a day, everyday. She used to eat, drink, swallow cigarettes and could never imagine her life without it. She was an addict that loved her addiction. But when her health started to totter, while on vacation in England, she went for hypnosis and has never once smoked a stick of cigarette ever since that day. She says she has no idea what happened, all she knows was that she paid £200 and walked out of there a while later, and has never been able to touch a cigarette ever since. 

Maybe these Nigerian 419ers, if only they weren't so lazy and deviant, could actually learn more and put their jazz to better use. Or don't you agree? 

Let's see. How else do you reckon these criminals can better use their craft?

Have or, or someone you know ever fallen victim? Tell us about it. 


  1. No I don't know anyone personally but I have heard countless stories of such

    Really these hyponist could put thier skills to better use

  2. One of my Ex GF was jazzed one time in Ikeja. She gave away the gold necklace I bought for her and then ran to my crib to see if I had more money. I wasnt at home - Hallelujah! She met my elder bro and tried to tax him, as a gangster he gave her straight face look and said "no" LOL. I cant even remember how it ended. I wasn't interested because break up was on my mind at that point. lol


    1. I've heard about it and it's very real.
      A girl

  3. Folks need to buy and keep safes at home....well co cealed safes. And maids shouldnt have access to your entire house especially when you are not home.

  4. Oh dear. Na normal something. I like d smoke story.

  5. Hypnotism is a semi-myth. It only works on those who believe in it.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
