nigerian premier league

The Nigerian Football League was formed in 1972 and then renamed Nigerian Premier League in 1990 after their counterparts, English Premier League... But right now you can't compare the quality of the both games even though the they both bear "premier"...

So i ask, what exactly is wrong with our premier league?



We might not necessarily be called to ministry, but we should realize our ministry is our life, our pulpit is our lifestyle.
Make sure your life brings light to someone.

I love my Country and I love my President because its not child's play to be the president of a country, not to talk of this complexity called Nigeria. The recent interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour on  issues pertaining to Nigeria was one I looked forward to watching because Im expriencing a paradigm shift on how I view my President. I wasn't very impressed but I won't say he needs to be impeached. President Jonathan made some very controversial statements especially with the one on Power Generation and he also didn't quite answer the questions to my satisfaction. I know he has good intentions but I doubt he has the Iron hands to mend what has taking over 30 years to degrade.... 

If he didn't want to prove himself capable and at least make Nigerians a bit happy with his administration,  I doubt he would have accepted the interview in the first place... 

Why God Is Moving in Other Nations But Not in America

Culled from Charisma News
Jesus Christ

A few weeks ago I preached on the subject of worship using 2 Samuel 6, a passage that outlines King David's two attempts to bring the ark of the covenant to the city of Jerusalem.
On his first endeavor, David transported the ark in the way that seemed best to him--on a cart pulled by oxen--and lost one of his men in the process. God struck the man down for touching the ark while trying to steady it. David became disgusted, fearful and unwilling to move the ark any further, and he dropped it off at the house of Obed-Edom, a Philistine who had become a Jewish proselyte. When David left the ark, God visited Obed-Edom's house and blessed the man abundantly.
At this point in the story, I began to think about the church in America--our history and our now arguably beleaguered condition. For generations, the American church has prioritized sending purveyors of the gospel throughout the known world. Now we are hearing reports of God blessing the people we touched.
Vibrant churches in Asia, Africa and South America are multiplying--many under persecution--at rates that defy logic. In fact, the presence of God for which we in America now long, the move of God for which we are crying, seems to be visible everywhere U.S. missionaries have gone except America. Maybe we dropped off some things in those places that we need to pick up again.
When David heard of Obed-Edom's good fortune, he made an executive decision: Go get the ark! David wanted to bring the presence and blessings of God into his nation's midst. So does the American church. I submit that if we can recover our purpose, passion and prayer life, we can experience God in ways we've never dreamed and become the catalyst for change our society desperately needs.
Purpose. When Jesus established His church, He was clear about its destiny: "The gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18, KJV). If hell's gates are fighting to hold our children, our cities and our country captive, then hell must understand that we have the power to prevail. Now is the time to remember we were born to overcome our enemy.
Passion. When purpose exits, passion is never far behind. David allowed his failure with the ark to destroy his passion to re-establish worship as the central focus in Judah and Israel. He became angry, confused and afraid.
In Revelation, Jesus speaks strong words about passion to the church at Ephesus. While the works of Ephesus had been purposeful and consistent, the Lord took issue with the church. The Ephesians had forgotten their first love, a lack of regard that could have cost them the entire ministry (see Rev. 2:4-5).
We must do what Ephesus was commanded to do: repent and remember. Repent of our fall from passionate pursuit of God and His will. Remember where we used to be in our relationship with Jesus and return to that place.
Prayer. Before successfully retrieving the ark from the house of Obed-Edom, David learned that God had a protocol for the ark's transport. Rather than being pulled on a cart by oxen, the ark was to be carried on the shoulders of the priests. Technology and ingenuity can be assets in the church as we work to expand God's kingdom, but we must shoulder the presence of God ourselves--in prayer.
Our nation is blessed, and often that very blessing deters revival. The dearth of prayer in the American church has less to do with our schedules and more to do with our dependence on ourselves. When we become convinced that our own efforts are in vain, we can begin to give attention to the only source of power capable of addressing the issues of our day: the power of God through prayer.
God is no respecter of persons. What He is doing in the nations He will do in America if we give Him preeminence in our lives. The ark of the covenant was a picture of the presence of God. If our churches will arm themselves with God's presence again, we, too, can experience the greatest days of the church.

Iweanya Writes
This write up came up after I read a book that described how CNN paints the African continent as really poor and daft.Whenever they discuss about the African continent its always about the bad stuff that goes on the continent. They speak with authority but with a high level of partiality.

The Arabs got tired of this impartiality and by the wisdom of their leader, Aljazeera was formed with the aim of providing accurate and impartial news with a global, international perspective. Aljazeera broadcasts both the good stuff and the bad that goes on in the Arab world with fairness.

We here in Africa have allowed the "BRAGADOCIOUS" CNN tell us what and who we are, I believe its time we broadcast from Africa to the world with fairness the GOOD and BAD that goes on in Africa because Africa is not synonymous with CRIME, EVIL and ATROCITIES....

I have decided to start posting positive and negative realities that go on, not just waiting for PATIENCE JONATHAN to make a grammatical error or JONATHAN to make a slight mistake in his speech because Africa is worth much more than what the MEDIA show us.......

Cossy Orjiakor

Google servers are currently melting because I spent quality time looking for a decent picture of you to attach to this post.

Honestly I shouldn't have any problem with you, you have your life to live, but reading all the insulting stuff you said to a fellow blogger like me really pissed me off.....
Hello ma, you think you are hot, but remember this:

I'll pray for you by 4pm today, if you are interested you can also pray at that same time. 
The Lord bless you. I love you with the love of Christ

PS: Nothing personal



The end of a relationship, and a cherished one at that, sometimes leaves one feeling quite disillusioned with life. If it has happened to you, take heart and remember that sooner or later, the feeling of misery will subside. So go through the following points and get over being dumped.

Accept the present situation
Start by accepting that the relationship has ended. Hard as it may sound, it is very necessary to be realistic at this stage and face the fact that your partner is not coming back. You cannot begin the healing process unless you consciously realize that your relationship is over.

Avoid the let's-be-friends trap
The fastest way to get over being dumped is to cut off all manner of contact with your ex. There is no sense in wanting to remain “friends” as it will only encourage hopes of reconciliation and thus further delay the healing process. Make a clean break and get on with your life.

Don’t succumb to a rebound relationship
Breaking up may goad you into having an affair, just to prove the point that not everybody thinks you a loser. But remember, rebound affairs never work, because you are just not emotionally ready for a new relationship. And even if you are not serious about it yourself, it is grossly unfair to the other person, who may not be aware of your real feelings.

Value your friends more
There is no substitute for real friends, they are always there even the hard times

Don't worry, there's always someone who will cherish and love you

Guru Mahara ji

I just finished reading a lengthy interview with the man whose picture appears above, and with all what I've read I believe this man is either very confused and really needs help or he's situation is just damned.

He said "all of them (pastors) use juju. How can a pastor touch somebody and he falls down? That one is juju at work. Our people are very foolish and ignorant. How can you touch somebody and he falls down? There is something behind this". So I want to believe he hasn't read the BIBLE and therefore doesn't know about the power and manifestations of the HOLY SPIRIT. 

But i got really confused when I heard him quote this from the bible "The wages of sin is death" after he was asked "Is it true, as some people claimed, that you once said that you would never die?" Now read his response to this question;
When one is transformed into spirituality, you no longer talk about death. Man is talking about mortality and immortality because he accepted teachings brought by the Europeans without finding out how true these teachings are. When you talk about death, it negates the principles of our existence. They say God is light, and in Him there is no darkness, and darkness can’t comprehend it. So, why is death coming in?

The true name of our creator is Maharaj Ji, and with my coming, light has come. Now, the light will be guiding my followers wherever they are going, so that with the knowledge they have acquired they will not commit sin. As it was written in the Bible that the wages of sin is death, but the moment you are lifted above, you will live in the spirit, and when you live in the spirit you will have knowledge.
Since I live in the spirit, and I’m the fountain of knowledge, I’m immortal. I can’t die. Why should I die physically? I can’t die physically. I will not die. Even it is said in the Scripture that man is the perfect image of God. Can God die? Since I’m a perfect image of God, I can’t die. Is it a sin to live till eternity? I have both the physical body and the spirit. If you look at the Scriptures, where did you see or read about people seeing dead bodies of previous masters like Moses, Elijah and others. Death means nothing to me – man is an image of the creator, so I don’t believe in death.
Sir, even the Bible you claim you read says "Remove the Log of wood in your eye before considering the speck in another man's eye" If you say they use jazz, no problem, but i guess it should be someone more sane and spiritual that has the audacity to say such......

1. I think of you as a brother.
Translation: You give me the creeps.

2. There's a slight difference in our ages.
Translation: I may as well be dating my dad.

3. I'm not attracted to you in 'that' way.
Translation: I don't want to be seen in public with a dork like you.

4. My life is too complicated right now.
Translation: I'm busy seeing other guys. Who are you again?

5. I've got a boyfriend.
Translation: I'd rather be with my male cat and a half gallon of Ben and Jerry's.

6. I don't date men where I work.
Translation: I wouldn't date you if you were in the same solar system, much less the same building.

7. It's not you, it's me.
Translation: It's you.

8. I'm concentrating on my career.
Translation: Even something as boring and unfulfilling as my job is better than dating you.

9. I'm saved, so my heart belongs to God.
Translation: I've sworn off men like you.

10. Let's be friends.
Translation: I want you to stay around so I can tell you in excruciating detail about all the other men I meet and go out with. I appreciate the male perspective.

You feel the Love in her heart and the warmth it emanates..
You see the Rivers of Living Water flowing from her belly..

Pardon my love for Women its just that I have a new found respect for them

God was very thoughtful when he created the Woman...

Fashion in Nigeria: Trends that rocked 2012

2012 was undoubtedly a memorable year. From the Fuel subsidy removal in January, to the fire incident in Lagos in December. Anyways, back to the issue at hand. Here are the trends that rocked the Nigerian fashion scene in 2012

Whether we like it or not, we have to admit to the fact that there are rules guiding color-blocking. The art of color blocking entails combining different bold colors of the same shade + the confidence to rock the outfit. I would like my fellow Nigerian ladies to note that there is a limit to the number of colors that can be worn at once. I also want to point out that it is best to use solid colors. However, you can use prints IF you are bold enough to pull it off. Finally, I would like to say that color blocking is not for everyone.  Not every Tom, Dick and Harry (or rather, not every Amaka, Sikira or Bolanle) can pull it off. Just checkout this CU student;


The word ‘peplum’ originates from the Pakistani word for “tunic”. The peplum is a short overskirt usually attached to a fitted jacket, blouse, skirt or dress. I have two words for this trend: classy and graceful. However, there are some that are horrendous; for example, if it looks frilly like the valances around a bed, then it is a total No-No!

They are both retro style utilitarian bags. While the latter is aptly named after the bags traditionally carried through history by messengers, the former is a soft sided bag used traditionally by old English schoolboys for carrying books! My dear Nigerians, *holds ear*, a satchel is different from a messenger bag! U dey hear me so? A satchel has a long, detachable strap, with a small strap on top, while a messenger bag has a non-detachable strap. A satchel is more suitable for professional and formal occasions because of its tailored conservative style while a messenger bag‘s laid back style has a classic, casual flair. They both come in various shapes, sizes, colors, etc. and are both suitable for both sexes. 

This trend was unarguably BIG! 
The Shamballa bracelet was founded by Danish Brothers:Mads and Mikkel Kornerup in 2004. Its design was inspired by Buddhist faith. It comes in various colors(each believed to have different meanings to suit dofferent personalities) and sizes. It is suitable for everyday looks, as well as professional and red carpet looks.

This are some of the trends that rocked 2012..... let's watch out for 2013!!!!

I attend a School that gives so much priority to Spirituality, and one of the major bones of contention among us students is the issue of Secular and Christian music. Watch this video to the end and see his perspective on it.... its kinda interesting






  1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
  2. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
  3. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
  4. When you say, "I love you," mean it.
  5. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.
  6. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
  7. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
  8. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
  9. In disagreements, fight fairly. Please No name calling.
  10. Don't judge people by their relatives.
  11. Talk slowly but think quickly.
  12. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"
  13. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
  14. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
  15. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
  16. Remember the three R's:    Respect for self;  Respect for others;    Responsibility for all your actions.  
  17. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
  18. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
  19. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
  20. Spend some time alone.

Culled from: MSN SPORTS

1. Messi never reacts to fouls
Not for Lionel the lash-out in retaliation or the seeking of retribution. If an opposition defender drove a tank onto the pitch and tried to mow Messi down, he’d probably just dive out of the way, get up again and take the free kick. He’s serene, like a mini-Buddha. Thinking about it, Pepe probably hasn’t ruled out a tank for the next clasico. Watch out, Leo.

2. He isn't addicted to Twitter
Social media obviously doesn’t interest our man. He has an official Twitter page, but it’s clearly not run by him and all it seems to do is retweet official Barcelona tweets about Pep Guardiola. Where are the inter-player feuds, man? Come on, get a grip. Give us something.

3. Messi's too loyal
Seriously, what is the point of football if its main protagonists aren’t going to make eyes at other clubs every January and August? Messi has never even considered moving to another club and probably still sleeps in the FC Barcelona duvet he first had at La Masia. Pathetic. 

4. He's a team player
Messi may be the best player in the world, but he’s also undoubtedly a team player. He gets on well with all his teammates and it’s hard to find an opposition player with a bad word to say about him. Where are the Ronaldo-esque tantrums? Where’s the pouting when he misses a chance? Stop being so REASONABLE.

5. Messi is easy to manage
The diminutive Argentine is a dream to manage and performs whatever role is asked of him without a fuss. This is unacceptable. He needs to start arguing back, chipping off in press conferences (which makes for easy copy) and storming out of mixed zones. Then we’d be getting somewhere.

6. Messi is a happy drunk who only drinks occasionally
Lionel only drinks on special occasions when appropriate. When Barcelona won the treble in 2009, he appeared on the team bus during the parade, drunk as a lord but in a good-natured way. Again, this is all so reasonable. When is he going to start breaking curfews and drinking the night before a game? Where are the fights? Has he learnt nothing from Wayne Rooney?

7. He scores too many goals
Seriously, it’s so dull. Journalists all around the world covering Barcelona games just write the same thing over and over again every single time. It goes something like this: ‘...running out of superlatives to describe the Barcelona number 10.’ Can’t he just go on a barren run? Just once?

8. Messi has gained popularity in Argentina
There used to be some easy copy in writing about how our man wasn’t as loved in Argentina as he was in Europe, but that’s gone out the window as well. He’s had a great year at international level and now just about everyone across the South Atlantic loves him. Annoying.

9. He's had his hair cut
The man’s even got a sensible haircut these days. A couple of years ago when he was rocking the flowing locks, he looked a bit like he was in an indie band with Zlatan and Carles Puyol. Not any more. That was obviously far too dangerous for him. Short(ish) back and sides, please.

10. Messi is an athlete
If all this wasn’t enough, he appears to take his fitness and general athleticism seriously too. He hasn’t got an iota of fat on him. Again, boring. Where’s the off-season beer belly? Why so many rippling muscles? It just makes us all feel inadequate. Is that what you want, Leo? Is it? Why do you hate us so much?

But Messi is no doubt the World's Best Player....


A couple of days back while in Lagos, I was engaged in a discussion with a friend and somehow I managed to tell him I had a blog. The next thing he said was, "So you've joined them?" I was baffled and so i asked him what he meant and he said "Everybody is now blogging, especially Gossip and Entertainment" I had to sit him down and tell him I generate my content and sometimes research before I post anything.

After the discussion, I decided to do a little research on Nigerian blogs that possess intellectual content and I discovered that everybody wants to be like Linda Ikeji. The very funny thing was that on some blogs, news from Linda Ikeji's blog is lifted word for word and posted on the site. Baba, you cant be like her jare, go and create your own signature.

That's why some blogs like Bellanaija, Ofilispeaks, Relentless Builder and the rest inspire me.......
Sit, Think then Write

PS: My research was done from Nigerian Blog Awards

I watch President Barack Obama's speeches and I'm almost considering moving to tears. The hope of a better future is rekindled by his speech, the energy to continue living the American dream is revitalised.... But when I watch my president speak on touchy issues, I wonder what goes on in his mind. His recent utterance which is now all over the blogosphere goes thus: "THE VIOLENCE IN NIGERIA COULD BE A SIGN OF THE END TIMES" are you kidding me? He is speaking to people who have watched their loved ones die avoidable deaths, people who have lost valuable properties, worst of all he is speaking to Nigerians not Mayans.... Hope for a better future is the least he should have given us. I really hope he has not squandered his chance to make Nigerians believe in him....


I used to be a very big fan of new year resolutions, until I figured out that around March, April I'm usually back to square one. I don't want to speak for us, but please if you do believe in New Year resolutions and it has helped you, please state so... I could borrow a cue from you...

(The picture above is my current resolution though..)
