Hey guys, I know I have been a bit erratic in posting articles this month but y’all know what I have been up to lately. Anyway I am back for a while but I would soon be missing in action again. I would soon embark on my annual leave and I can’t wait. 

As you know, US decided in their mind that I am not worthy of stepping into their country (for now!) but that does not mean that I am not going somewhere. Even if it is to go to Ghana, or Lagos bar beach, I intend (by God’s Grace) to enjoy myself this leave period and oh, try to read too. I have to say a big thank you to all my peeps that were angry on my behalf about the whole visa issue. You guys are the bomb. I got some suggestions to go to places like Zanzibar, morocco and the likes. And I think they sound and look like wonderful places. I have seen pictures of Zanzibar, morocco and turkey and I think they are beautiful. I would research on how to go there and start a savings plan so that I can afford to go to these places. 

I have officially decided started a travel fund, education fund and a wedding/marriage fund and home repairs or acquisition fund (or better yet savings account). I know right? I am strange but I think after seeing that saving for my travels worked, I think it would be better I spread my savings so that even when I want to do something I won’t use up all my money on one item. I hope my plan sounds like a cool one. Oh well, let’s see how it goes. It is all in God’s Hands.

So I read an article on a 100 days happy challenge in which people upload pictures of one item that makes them happy on instagram. Funny days before I read the article I was thinking of uploading a picture everyday of what I call my 'simple pleasure'. To me, these are things big or small that makes me smile or happy. It could be a drink or food or snack or clothes or item or bible verse. It could be anything. I think I would join the challenge in May, a brand new month, a brand new look on life.

I recently got a Ghanaian movie called ‘THE CONTRACT’. It has officially become my second best Ghanaian movie. I saw the movie while getting one of my simple pleasures in life (Pepsi), I didn’t even have enough money to get it but the guy in the supermarket told me I could take it and bring the money later since he knew me. I was actually interested in it because of the story line and the main actress, Yvonne Okoro. She was also in my best Ghanaian movie, THE GAME and I also follow her on instagram. 

So I got home, put in my computer and didn’t regret watching the movie for over 2 hours. It was incredible. And Yvonne was the producer so you can imagine, the film was tight for an African film. She was able to get some companies to sponsor the movie. Even before I saw the credits which stated that i was right, it was obvious. The products of the companies/hotel were carefully interwoven with the story line. It was a very nice job. But, there is always a but with me. I noticed that the lead actress had the same hair and same nail polish colour for 9 months. How come na? That detail skipped their mind? For 9 months, the hair was still the same and intact? Naaaaaaa, I don’t buy that. However it was a cool movie.

I have to go now. Can you imagine? I am on call and the wire connection to the lights and fan are not working so I am presently in the dark. I don’t know what is going to happen right now. Oh well, the worst thing that can happen is that I would leave my intern and go home.

Thanks for stopping by.

Luv ya,

I just read this article on linda ikeji,s blog and the comments that followed was telling of what the power of having a good name/integrity can do. Please continue to read, i would let you know what i think.

Is it over with P-Square?

I've been hearing a few stories about Peter and Paul Okoye of P-Square having issues for a while now. I hear they disagree on everything now...songs, videos, ideas etc...but because they are twin brothers, I figured well, they will sort things I didn't write.

On Wednesday April 16th, I gathered exclusively from industry sources that the brothers fought each other physically during rehearsals. They had to be separated by their dancers. This is fact! But I decided to leave the story alone because which sibling doesn't disagree sometimes, right? But now their older brother, Jude Okoye, who is also their manager, just tweeted that after ten years he's done.

I hear one of the wives is causing some of the problems between the brothers. *sigh* Dear P-Square, don't even think of breaking up. You will break the hearts of millions of people...including myself. Please stay together.


What i want to talk about is the part where it was said that one of their wives is causing the problem. I am not a fan per se of the twin brothers but i appreciate that they have always tried to put their best foot forward and changed a lot of things in the Nigerian music industry. It is amazing that a woman is now causing problems with brothers that shared the same womb at the same time. They came from the same zygote sef.

Lord knows and should forgive me but when i saw that 'one of the wives' was causing the problem, the name of one of them came to my mind instantly. I had read a lot of comments about her and the issues that her relationship with one of the brothers had caused. Reading the comments of readers showed that everyone was thinking just like me.

Which brings me to the statement i made earlier. A good name is far better than all the riches in the world. I don't know if she used to do all that she is claimed she used to do but i however feel that she does not do them again. But people have refused to forget about the past and still judge her based on that.

It is amazing that brothers are now fighting each other because their wives (or rather one of their wives) seem to be creating problems. Whoever is causing the problem is in my own opinion is a very bad person. You should not cause problems between brothers. If you don't agree with some things that happen shut your mouth.. As long as your family is not affected, don't interfere. It is their business, they would sort it out. They have been doing it for years. Now that they are about to part ways, i wonder how the family members would feel. I hope the both of them (the wives) know they married ibo men. It is not that easy to separate them from their kinsmen. A word is enough for the wise.

And guys, please no matter what it might cost you, learn to walk in a way that your name when mentioned shall be synonymous with intergrity.

Thanks for stopping by and if you want to view the hilarious and also thought provoking comments of LIBers (as they are called...Lindaikeji'sblog readers), check here.

I am sure you already know the embassy from the picture. Yep! i went to the almighty US embassy to try and get a visa. Maybe I shouldn’t call the trip disastrous and say it was a money wasting, time wasting, casual leave wasting trip. Nope! It should be called anger spurring trip to the US embassy, Abuja. I just remembered the nonsense one of the ladies did to me and I am mad, really mad. But I think I should start from the very beginning so that you guys can understand why I am mad (or technically why I was mad).

So I decided that since I enjoyed my trip to SA last year that I should make another trip to another country this year. So while I was checking out countries, my friends in US asked that I come and visit them. I had heard a lot about the American embassy being very annoying and that they thrived in embarrassing people so I had never wanted to go there. Besides there was nothing for me there. So it took quite some persuading from different friends to make me consider it.

A lot of things were just not going according to plan and I was tempted to stop all attempts but I decided to just go ahead just so that they are not disappointed. So I used my last 3 days of causal leave and left on Tuesday to Abuja. 

On Wednesday, when we got to the place some boys made me realise that I didn’t have a document. You should see the way I was stressed and annoyed that I had not done everything right. My father and I went to his office and after a lot of searching I got something that looked like the document. Off we went to the gate, I was over 30 minutes late. I went there and the guy said I didn’t have the document but since my name was on the list he allowed me to enter. I got there and I was number 534. I was just laughing at myself. A lot of people came in their uniforms and with their i.ds on them. I noticed a lot of families and I also noticed that families were given visas and those with family members living in the US were also given. So i had begin to see the pattern already. When it was my turn the lady asked me about 5 questions and said I don’t meet the criteria to be allowed to enter their country. I am not mad about the refusal but mad about the way she did it.

I noticed that the other ladies when they refused people, they still pretended to be interested. As for my lady she didn’t even look at anything I brought. Apparently maybe she thought I was lying about my job or she felt that once I get to US I would run away. For Goodness sake, why would i leave all that i have all that i have here to go and suffer there. It amazed me that she thought so but my dad explained that she has probably seen a lot of people perform stunts like that.

Why else am I angry? I wasted over 40k on the whole fiasco and I am mad. Do you guys know how many shoes or clothes I could have gotten from that money? I just saw a message about an easter sale where 4 dresses would go for 20000 naira at the Oja Ara event and the anger came back again. 

But I have decided that it ain't worth it to be angry anymore, she had the right to do what she did. She has trying to keep her country safe but I would like that she does it with more finesse. However you guys should have seen how my friends and aunty were vibrating and hissing at all the nonsense that happened. My friends in the US felt bad but I had to let them know that they shouldn’t. People also thought I was rejected because of small size (as i look younger than my age), however whatever their reason is it is their problem. The most encouraging reaction was from an American, he was so angry. I had to let him know that the lady had the right to do what she did even though she did it for the wrong reason and to the wrong person. He still called it ‘illegal’ and I was like (in my mind) ‘shey you know na your people’. He is such a sweetie, angry over my supposed 'illegal rejection'.
the already printed visa application rejection letter....
Oh well that was my sojourn into the world of US visa application and denial. A friend suggested that i reapply and i said never! There is nothing for me there and i hope that i would not have anything that would desperately require me going there. Unless someone else pays for the fee and brings the visa to my doorstep, i ain't bothering myself. 

So what am I going to do now? What do you think? Sulk and continue to be angry or look for another country and jet out for some serious R and R? Knowing who i am, take a wild guess guys.

Thanks to all my peeps that got angry on my behalf, you guys are amazing. I also want to say a big thank you to those who have missed my write ups. Thanks for always checking my page. 

Happy Easter in Advance. I wish you all the blessings of this season.

Thanks for stopping by…

Hey guys, I have been MIA for a while now but I know you all know the reason. We finally finished the intense and very relevant training on friday (4/04/14) and I don’t think I regret going. It was eye opening and very informative but it also showed me that I have a lot of work to do in the pharmacy.

The drugs for HIV are free but to be able to know if the right people are benefiting from the program there has to be documentation. Every single thing has to be documented. Also I have to act like a CSI agent and scrutinize every prescription now, we cannot afford for mistakes. Because mistakes means ineffective viral control which means treatment failure which means big problem.

I didn’t take a lot of pictures because I had to act like a serious girl. Some of them were of the room I was lodged in. they gave me a suite and later wanted to evict me but things were settled. The bed was bigger than me 4 times. Seriously, I just perched myself in one corner. One day I laid on the bed and thought the bed was big enough for me, a husband and 2 kids (big or small), honest.

Anyway, here are some of the pictures. I do hope you like them….

Thanks for stopping by. Hey I forgot to let you guys know how special you are. My blog has almost 21000 views……Yay! I am so grateful to you guys. Thank you so much…
Luv ya guys to the moon and back….
