It's only a few days to my 30th birthday and I have been thinking a lotttttt! In a good way, though. Like, what in the heavens just happened? It's incredibly amazing to realize that I am officially saying goodbye to my 20s. I remember being 20 and wondering what my life was about. Being in my 20s was puzzling. It was a decade full of questions and quests as I try to figure out everything — who am I? Am I really in love with them? What am I doing with my life? What do I want my career to look like? Somewhere around graduating from the university, falling in love, being jobless and heart broken, finding a job and getting married, I grew up. The last decade has been a blast and I am super glad to present TWENTY PIECES to you. It's a book that broadens perspective on the challenges and obstacles faced as a 20-something. The secrets I share in this book are not easily obtained. Each page is a piece of my heart. Coming this June. #20Pieces20
B E L O V E D 💛❤ When we go to the grocery store, out to eat, get gas, etc.; it’s easy to get caught up in our own lives and forget we are walking into others. Greet people with a smile. Say, “Hello,” “Please,” “Thank you,” ask them “How are you doing today,” acknowledge that they are a person and they deserve love. Today has been a great day. Bits coming up on bit.do/PerfectMachForeverTV soon. 😁
Let me post this now before I change my mind again.
That feeling you get when the broken pieces are coming together. . . I'm super excited about my second book!
The last wedding we attended before the world turned upside down. 🖤🖤 2020 BC. (Before Corona)

I know what God told me.
During my National Youth Service (NYSC) year, I met Gbenga. Gbenga was tall, dark and handsome. He was so foineee. If I had a list of what I wanted my ideal boyfriend to look like, he checked all the boxes. I was helplessly crushing on him.😍 I wanted him to want me. So I decided to shoot my shot. And we got talking. Some days after, I saw Gbenga talking to Sue, my new friend. I couldn't believe they were holding hands. I felt sick to my stomach. (A peep into #HeWasntMyHusband ) Let's talk. No pretence. If you were in my shoes, what would you have done? Ever liked a guy/lady who started liking your friend? How did you handle it?
If you don't give it to Him, then how can He take it?
I'm not much of a public speaker but boy, I feel ALIVE going on a journey with people, into their world to DISCOVER how God helped them out and how they are evolving. Talkshows, interviews, and everything else that has to do with sharing heart-reaching experiences and thoughts with people get me. #aboutlastweekend #amakamedia #recreateyourself
The laziness of getting a piece I can just throw on, or wanting an easy going look lures me into wearing his finest shirts. I used to sneak into my brothers' room to steal their shirts, so this isn't a new thing 🤣😂 Who else does this? P.s I think I rocked it better 😅 #fridayoutfit #casualstyle #husbandshirt
🦋🦋BUTTERFLIES I remember being so fascinated by the life cycle of a butterfly that it totally absorbed my entire being. I talked about it, wrote about it, screamed about it, and even sang about it. It literally captured my imagination. It's been 5 years since I caught it and I am still intrigued. A butterfly wasn't always a butterfly. It starts with a tiny egg that hatches into a not-so-good looking caterpillar. The caterpillar grows and grows and grows until its time to build a hardened shell around its body, called a chrysalis (also known as cocoon). While the caterpillar sleeps inside the chrysalis, its body changes and grows new parts. The cocoon (chrysalis) is where the transformation happens. We also go through the cocoon in some way. The cocoon represents a dark, lonely, secret, painful, and everything not-so-cool experience. The change is an inside-out process. It might take weeks, months or years. Yes, the waiting period might be longer than expected. And then, after that period of waiting, when it eventually comes out, Oh! It turns out to be a beautiful butterfly.🦋 Butterflies are not only bright, beautiful and colourful but are also sensitive to change, growth and transformation.They are ever changing and embracing the new and different life's processes. They slay yet are slain. I have often thought about what happens if the butterfly decided to live like it used to before it was changed. What if it was so comfortable being just a caterpillar? And the more I find answers to these questions in my heart, the more I desire to keep changing into the beautiful woman He has called me to be. The caterpillar's changes to the butterfly represents God's workings in our lives. Everyone has got a need to break out of one cocoon or the other. It is God who brings the breakthrough when He sees how we grow in faith, character and obedience. These times help us grow into the next phase of destiny. You may look like a not-so-good looking caterpillar today, best believe you are a beautiful butterfly going through changes. . . Get ready to fly! 🦋
He liked it. He shot it. He said she could post it. Well. . .
A few years back, I was one of these women, caught up in a relationship that clearly wasn't good for me. The man I loved was bad for me in so many ways, but I just couldn't leave him. Actually, on the occasions I tried to do so, he reappeared a few days or weeks later to lure me back in — and I let him. Over and over and over. Looking back, I've often wondered why this was so, and why I couldn't simply let go. If you are in a similar situation I'm hopeful that by sharing what I have learned with you, you can find both strength and comfort to move on. Swipe left to see my top 5 reasons! Ever been there? #HeWasntMyHusband
EVERYTHING SPEAKS OF HIS GLORY In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. In the beginning God commanded, and words crackled and burst into flowers and trees and stars and Eve. In the beginning the words became light and heaven, moons and seas, animals and man. In the beginning God spoke, and the words were obedient and became flesh. And since they are words, they speak. They speak with their fins and their claws and their snouts and their molecular compositions. They speak in obedience, in submission, under the thrall of their Omnipotent Speaker. And they all have the same message in their varying tongues; they all say the same word in their uniquely personal way. They all say “glory.” They all thunder and chirp and buzz and clap and shout the word “glory!” Everything speaks of His glory. Everything. . . .And that is precisely why God reveals the truth to us. Not only to grow us up in the faith, but so that we might share it with others that they also might speak of His glory. #HWMH
I was looking like a million dollars at the official launch of #HeWasntMyHusband Thanks to: @ellaseams for the lovely dress. So heavenly. @amakaankara for the accessories. That's so me! And @iam_rayem for the amazing shots. Your photography is priceless! Who heard when the Chairman of the day said I looked like a book? 😀
I will be taking at least a two-week break from social media after this weekend. This exhaustion is real. I need some Holy Ghost refill.
