Living with Sickle Cell in Nigeria: My Story by Modupe Babawale #WarriorNotSickler

by Yada MagazineMay 15, 2015

My name is  Modupe Babawale and I am living with Sickle Cell Disease. Shocked? Don’t be, just need you to hear my story.

Sickle Disease is a blood condition that affects the oxygen carrying molecule in the red blood cell, known as Hemoglobin (HB). This causes the normal oval red blood cell shape to assume a rigid and abnormal shape.

Ok so you all know the farm tool called a sickle, yes that one, that’s exactly how most of my blood is. Sickle cell Disease comes with a lot of health complications like stroke, liver diseases, and many more. Now that you all catch the drift of what sickle cell is all about, I won’t bore you with any more scientific jargon….that’s not the point of this piece.

My parents are both carriers i.e. AS genotype and didn’t know about that until I was born. And ever since I was born, my life has been characterised with struggle, pain, fear of death, pains and low self esteem even as a little kid growing up. Sickle cell took most of my childhood away from me. I didn’t experience all those memorable moments as a kid owing to the fact that I was always ill. I was miniature in size; couldn’t ride a bike (still can’t); didn’t have a lot of friends – most of my age mates couldn’t be around me as I was always sick. I had a very big head, yellow [...]

Simple Ways to Avoiding Toxic Relationships

by Ifemidayo OdekunleMarch 22, 2015

Dating is hard. Given the casual, predominantly Internet and Twitter, Facebook approach available to singles today, there is no denying it can be difficult to know what the other person expects, or even what one’s own expectations should be.

Yet, for most people, dating is a necessary part of trying to find the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with.

But between the weirdness that often surrounds dating in the Church and the unrealistic expectations portrayed in Hollywood and Bollywood romantic films, it can be difficult to find good examples of healthy dating relationship.

There is no exact formula for relationship success, as every relationship is different. But In trying to lay some sort of general framework, it’s important to recognize some of the patterns that lead to the toxic relationships that are doomed to fail:

Recognize the Rebound.

There is no exact formula for relationship success, as every relationship is different. But it’s important to recognize some of the patterns that lead to toxic relationships.

The worst time to make important decisions is when you’re going through extreme high or low points in life. During these times, your guard are lowers, increasing the likelihood of latching onto the nearest available person. After enduring loss or a crushing breakup, you are vulnerable to make decisions or compromises you wouldn’t ordinarily make.

The desire to have others reciprocate kindness, love, [...]

The Normal Christian Life: How a man got healed on the streets #normalChristianLife

by Seye KuyinuNovember 19, 2014

According to The Normal Christian Life Youtube , a normal Christian is a radical Christian. This is a thought should hold true for every believer. This phrase has got me meditating on the words of Jesus, when he said “I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these”. If this is true, then really the normal Christian life should be full of miracles. The video below demonstrates a normal Christian ministering healing to a passer-by. This person didn’t believe in Jesus until he was prayed for and miraculously healed. After being prayed for, he walks away only to come back a few minutes ago, ecstatic that the pain in his back, that he’s had for many years is gone.

The video below motivates me to not only realize the authority and position we have as believers but also realize our role in the community. We are the light of the world!

Watch it to the end!

Writer’s Block: How Nigerian Pastors Make Their Billions by Adegoke Oyeniyi

by Yada MagazineNovember 14, 2014

Kindly disregard richestlifestyle.com and its Richest African President and Top Ten Richest Pastors in the World 2014 lists that have been making rounds online. The reports are unsubstantiated and at best laughable. The rich lifestyle online magazine listed Goodluck Jonathan as Africa’s 6th richest President with an estimated wealth of $100m and Bishop David Oyedepo as the world’s richest pastor on a $150m claim.

My question is where are the numbers they added up to arrive at the incredulous financial statements? A media organization should not just wake up and come up with random figures to make bogus claims. Any Nkem Dike and Haruna can say Genevieve is worth N2Bn but credible wealth reporting requires investigating and publishing not just revenue channels of the subjects but also their revenue figures. The latter is where richestlifestyle.com grossly falters; the absence of convincing financial breakdown. Wealth reporting is a lot of arithmetic. Numbers don’t lie.

During my exciting time with Ventures Africa as a staff writer, we crunched the first credible African rich list cataloging 55 High Net Worth (HNW) Africans with a billion dollars or more. The report also broke the news of Famfa Oil founder Folorunsho Alakija as the richest woman alive with a combined fortune of over $3.6 billion from 60 percent majority [...]
