My Official Welcome Note

Yep, this is my first blog post. I have always loved writing and I am grateful that I  have the opportunity to use this blog to express my creativity, learn – yes, I have a lot to learn, impact positively to my generation and help raise a generation of African readers/leaders. A lot of people will ask, why author a blog? There are approximately over 160 million blogs in the internet, why add one to the number?  That question is just like saying that there are there are millions if not billions of books out there why write one. The truth is that there are many sides to a story and it is pertinent that people see from different sides. Learning never ends, and in this generation of internet users I am confident that the internet could be used positively to influence our generation.
This blog would be used as a medium to give a voice to the voiceless in our generation, encourage education, entertain and most importantly celebrate Africa. I would use this medium to appreciate God almighty, people who I consider mentors to me; Bamidele Onibalusi of Writers in Charge blog  the richness of his blog inspired mine and every blogger out there. Also I  am grateful to star actress Stella Damascus who encouraged me in my endeavour, thanks ma you are truly a role model. Thanks to my family and friends who stood by me and also to you lovely people that read this blog. Thanks, thanks and many thanks. Love you all.

Fastest way to prepare Kunu Aya (Tigernut 100% Natural Drink)

It is a natural drink popular in northern Nigeria and it’s gradually getting popular all over the country. The original kunu which is a popular drink is called kunu dawa (made from millet and some other ingredients). However, despite how nice that drink is, it is heavy and causes one to sleep unlike this kunu aya which is light and easy to digest. 

The first time I drank kunu was when I attended a meeting and this natural, 100 percent African drink was served, I tasted this drink and it entered my head grimmmm…. Straight to my brain and I was like, what is this?  It tasted like a combination of soy milk, mixed with something that I couldn’t explain. It was so tasty. However, I could hardly believe it when I was told by my host that it contained zero percent sugar and I was really amazed.  After asking around, I was taught how to make this tasty, sugar free, natural drink and guess what?  It is easier than you ever imagined!      These are the major ingredients in preparing the drink: 1.A…

2. What influenced your decision to study abroad?
I love scholarship and have always known deep within me that pursuing a career outside the academia is not where I see myself. I had the hunger to go beyond bachelors and dreams of being at the top in my field. I desired to have better and relevant education. As fate had it, an uncle of mine, who understood…
