My special mother’s day message to Every Woman!

All over the world people are celebrating mother’s day and there’s this common belief that mother’s day is reserved exclusively for women who have gone through the physical process of actually birthing a child. In our churches, married women are called out to be celebrated; they are celebrated by their husbands, relatives and friends. The women cook very delicious meals and invite their friends to rejoice with them. It’s nice to celebrate our biological mothers on this day and I feel that anything done to celebrate today cannot be overdone, so my post today is not to negate the importance of celebrating our mothers.
However, I’ll go a step further and call out all women all over the world:  Black, Brown, White, Asian, Indian, in respective of all their financial background, social status, physical appearance and what not. My message is not reserved for only birth mothers but for women in Diaspora who have in their little ways contributed to the development of children, women such as teachers, nurses, doctors, nannies, human right activists. Happy mother’s day to all the beautiful women all over the world: married or single, surrogate or birth mother, mothers by adoption or mothers through. This is solely my opinion, should mother’s day be celebrated by birth mothers alone or every responsible woman in society? 


  1. Thanks for this, happy mothers day to all women!

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…
