Beware, The Social Media Life...

  • You see this life we are all living, this social media life, this hype that a lot of us don't even recognize how much it is swallowing and consuming us. 
    The lies we are getting drowned in. The luxe we are living that we can't afford. 
    The judging of people based on their social media showcase: bags, shoes, cars, holidays, yachts, Jewellry. 

  • The friends we have changed because we have lost our realness due to 'social media pressure' & now base our friendships on 'social media worth' 
    Ahhhhhhhhh the friends who you thought you knew & they are suddenly different species on social media. 

  • The friends you are very close to who don't acknowledge you on social media but they post and hail social media FAB friends (whom they barely know physically) on a daily (yup it hurts). The friends who ignore comments on their post but run along and reply their instafamous and instarich friend immediately (normal friends have turned ghosts). The friends who no longer invite you over not because you have done something wrong, but becos they need to post on Instagram and snap chat and want to post with a certain clout of people. The ones who borrow money to travel so they can intimidate those who didn't. 

  • The ones who don't post until they travel (why are you under pressure to prove you are not in nigeria?) You use all your money to patronize business on social media becos you want to be hailed or have status elevation & you can't pay your rent, you have no tangible business, you can't even eat. 

  • You can't afford it but social media won't let you tell yourself the truth. 
    You can't afford it, but social media will not let you save because you need to SLAY. 
    It is well with us all. 

    It is unrealistic. WE ARE LOSING OURSELVES. 

  • Grown women acting like children, grown men fooling around. 
    Adults doing toddler things. 
    Humans being striped of their humanity.
    I am not perfect. I am still a big fool
    , but I won't stop learning until I am stripped of my foolishness. 
    At least I know I am foolish, do you? #ThisNonsenseMustStop

  1. So you mean people go this far for social media?
    I must truly be living in another planet!

  2. Dear Poster,

    Im like - Let the people that want to be foolish be foolish. Whats your own??
    They want to twerk all day on Snapchat. Its all good
    They want to show off designer clothes and popping bottles. Whats your own?

    I think the people that are not really into social media are the real haters! What is youuuurrr own! Let the foolish people be foolish! You that you are wise and not acting foolish on social media, good luck to you. I hope you are making money from it.


    1. As in eehn! To each his own. Afterall social media would be less interesting without all the drama.

    2. The title is:

      "Beware, the social media life".

      The theme:

      "...this hype that a lot of us don't even recognize how much it is swallowing and consuming us. The lies we are getting drowned in..."

      Not all who have access to social media would believe the deception being exposed and then the result of the excessive vanity. People then, as a result, tend to be more evil just to meet up with the fake lifestyles of SM "celebrities". Few months ago we heard of a Jumia delivery man murdered because the customers wouldn't or couldn't really afford the smart phones they ordered. If they had gotten away with it they'll become the latest "celebrities" in town. These things shouldn't be ignored please, the Post is on point.

  3. #SocialMediaSlayingNotByForce

  4. The social media craze,

  5. Seriously though, I don't understand these things.. social media for me is for amebo (just reading what others are posting and sometimes stalking an old school mate or celeb) and posting silly or ghen ghen pictures when the mood hits, dasall.

    That paragraph about friends and people borrowing money to travel is just messes up on too many levels. It doesn't even make sense to me. Whose business is it if I travel?

    Me I don't understand this social media craze and I pray never to understand it.. I wish them good luck with their hustle

  6. nice one. Only an idiot will slay in hunger.

  7. Lol.

    I enjoy looking at the pictures and the videos. The drama...

  8. Social media has made a lot of people mad, the part that scares me most is the number of ladies loosing their lives courtesy of this thing called social media, meeting someone on instagram and deciding to visit and even spend the night, eniyan MA laya ohhhh.. We are suddenly being carefree, God help us.

  9. I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post's to be
    just what I'm looking for. can you offer guest writers to write
    content for you personally? I wouldn't mind creating a post or
    elaborating on many of the subjects you write with regards to here.
    Again, awesome web log!

  10. So how do you filter out the bad ones and find the good ones? Well, the good social media managers will know their stuff and they understand what it takes to be successful.

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
