Nigerian International Collabs

Went to watch Emirates Cup yesterday with my bro and Szymon. £25 to see Arsenal, Villareal, Wolfsburg and Lyon. What a steal. We chose the right side of goal to be at 6 of the 9 goals were at our end. Great goals as well. Also saw Habiba there and she looked lovely as usual. Was great to see her, thank God for Snapchat stories haha, wouldn’t have realised she was there if I hadn’t seen it on her story. So on the note, I ended my last post, I begin my new one. I give you my personal ranking of Nigerian music artistes collaboration with International artistes. What is classified as international and as Nigerian but I shall go ahead.

What don’t I love about this song. Nothing. The video was well directed, high quality and sooo fun, Snoop Dogg seemed to…

Scandal of Grace

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭8-9‬ NIV)
These verses are dedicated to anyone feeling unworthy of God’s love and/or salvation through Jesus. I’d love to share what I heard in church last Sunday! “Grace is unmerited favor- we didn’t earn it but God gave us anyway. You didn’t earn grace so you cannot lose it!”. We’ve all “sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” but that’s the amazing thing about God’s grace. Irrespective of our sins, “if we declare with our mouth “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in our heart that God raised Him from the dead, we will be saved”. So stop thinking “omg I can’t reach out to God, I don’t think He will listen to me or answer me, I’m not worthy”! We are ALL unworthy but His grace is always more than sufficient. Remember that “if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself. (‭2 Timothy‬ ‭2‬:‭13‬ NIV)”. Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ. Literally nothing! And that’s so crazy to me because we, human beings, fall in and out of love all the time! Even when we think we can never stop loving someone, something can happen that might prove us wrong! Or sometimes, even if we still love that someone, we might decide that it’s best to love them from a distance. But with God, that’s never the case! The only distance that can exist between Him and us is the distance WE create. Despite all the things we’ve done that we might not be proud of, He remains madly in love with us, and gives us the gift of grace, by which we are saved through faith! He’s honestly the realest MVP. He really is. I hope this comforting fact warms your hearts as much as it does mine and I hope you’ve all been blessed by this 7-day bible challenge as much as I have been! God bless youuuu 💜


It’s the little things you do…

For today, I’m supposed to share my top five pet peeves.

Once again, I am not sure what those are, but in no random order, here are some little things that get on my nerves.

  1. English Mistakes. I’ve recently seen one too many. I don’t know if being an English major has contributed to this, but I greatly dislike it when people don’t use proper english, especially after they’ve finished forming for me and using big grammar. I mentioned this to my summer roommate yesterday, and she retorted “that’s your privilege speaking”. She was right. Perhaps this irks me because I was privileged enough to have Mrs Smith and Mr Kolawole and Mr Eke teach me correct english, or whatever. But I also went to a school whereyou were laughed at if you made a grammatical mistake. I remember leaving the dining hall one day and I blurted “Ibukun did…

…and who do you think you are?

Once upon a time, something happened. And I got upset.

I got upset because I felt like I tried so hard and do all I could to serve God and to do His will (although I often fail terribly). So why, I thought, did all that happen to me? Why didn’t He warn me earlier, why did He watch me fall into the trap again? It was the same story of someone doing something, or I doing something, falling short, then feeling bad, getting upset, and finally asking “Oh Lord, why didn’t you warn me ahead of time? Why did you not also prevent me from this? Why do you not help me?”

But that day, just as I was about to launch a big, annoying rant about how God is good to other people and bla bla bla, something in my heart told me to shut my mouth.

A little detour.

I find it very difficult sharing the…

Testimony- The rain does not stop falling just because the calabash is full!

My march update is finally here.

It’s pathetic that I’m posting this so late into the new month, perhaps my April update should be called Struggle since I struggle so much with discipline and timeliness. I need God because I promise I’ve tried everything- I’ve got to the end of me, but clearly, there’s nothing I can do. (well, naturally)

Anyway, today is a happy day because of the things that the Lord has done.

If you remember, when I first started blogging I said it was because when I was asking God to gift me with a new laptop, I promised Him that I would use it to His glory.

Well, last month, the Lord gave me the laptop of my dreams. He made the finances available not just for me to purchase a brand new laptop for myself, He also blessed me so much that together with a friend of mine…

Location: Nkiru’s head

I see you. The water pours as I wash my face one too many times to get you out of my mind, but here I am again, asking if I keep you up at night?


“I would dream all night if I could talk to you because it just won’t seem right for me to not know you.”
