Ermm, this style of taking compliments has to stop ohh

Clears throat! Nigerians in the house I hail ohhh.
I'm coming for y'all right now.. Because honestly, I have not seen any other person from another country do this.
Now, before y'all come for me, I've probably done a few of what I'm about to write now. But mehn, I've seen some so grand that it had to result in a blog post.


So you see a Nigerian with a nice outfit, looking so glam that you have to drop compliments.
For someone like me, when I don't like something, it is really not so hard to hide (which is very bad because I need to work on my pretence skills). Which brings us to the point that if I compliment you, I truly mean it and that means I really like how you look.
Biko, what's wrong with saying a simple "thank you" when you receive a compliment?
Oya let me paint typical scenario with a Nigerian

Scenario 1
ME: Chidombo, you look nice ohh, I really like your outfit..
CHIDOMBO: Wash, wash, why can you wash me like this... Na wa ohh.

Scenario 2
ME: Chidombo, I really like this your shoe
CHIDOMBO: Argh, na you ohhh... My own sef no reach you. I dey learn work were you dey. I want to be like you when I grow up...
ME: (inserts confused face) Really nigga???

Grateful, Thankful, Hopeful!!!

Hello my lovers, how are you all doing?
I officially welcome you to the first day of the First month of the second half of 2015. Congrats, you made it.
Happy Canada day to all my jolly folks in Canada. This is the 3rd Canada day I am witnessing, how time flies.

First thing first, check out this music! I'm blown away, like literally blown away. So clean. The title is praying for peace

As regards this post, I want to share with you what I'm grateful for in the past first half of the year. I learnt early in life the importance of gratitude and I won't take many things in life for granted. It's been a long ride, many things didn't go as planned, but in all, I give thanks to God. So here we go and this is my attempt at keeping things very short.

Yay!!! New month

1.) Thankful for Life
I am grateful for the fact that I'm alive. Many times, it is easy to take for granted the fact that life is very fleeting and can be lost at any moment. I am grateful for the one time this year that my house almost caught fire but God kept us and put out the fire (my house-mate is a very organized person who loves to put things in place, but the fact that she overlooked my hair towel that I left in the parlor for over a week which we eventually used to put out the fire is nothing short of God's mercy).
