So, this thing about finding love that would stay 
was making me think hard today..
Like how does the earth revolve and still make each dawn a new day..?

A spark of emotions today..
And a load of regrets the next day..
All these found love seem not to stay
But we cannot continue to sway

We all need that love that would stay..
But how does the chemistry fade? 
And when does our emotions start to stray?
And why do we betray..
the love that has vowed to stay?

Or let's turn the tables the other way..
And take a long walk down the hallway
I hear you say you met them half way..
But their love couldn't make it to the last day..

Still, I ask them the same questions today
How did their chemistry fade? 
When did their emotions start to stray? 
And why did they betray..
the love that has vowed to stay?

Love should not be a causal 360° display
Cos each turn doesn't give a new day..
It only drops a bitter ex on the subway..
And a litter of exs on the subway..
is an ugly display.

If you do the heart x-ray, 
You will see the shattered heart straightaway..
and realize that love is no child's play
So, be ready to do it the right way..

Don't start at all, if you won't go the whole way..
Be prepared to love 'em forever and a day..
Do all you can to love 'em the right way..
Cos we all need that love that would stay..

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…
