ABEJOYE SEASON 5 FINALE REVIEW – SHOULD LAIDE BE BLAMED FOR BAMIDELE’S ACTIONS

As we anticipate Season 6 of Abejoye, a fantastic Mount Zion Series, we took time to review an aspect of Season 5.

In Season 1, a guy cheated on his wife with a “sister in the Lord”, repented and moved on, but somehow “went back to his vomit” in Season 5.

As it played out, it appeared like his wife played a role in his “slip”. But…was it really her fault?

Watch the video and also tell us what you think.

IT’S ABOUT GRACE!

Maya Angelou quote


Toru dashes in to see her mother – Emi, earphones in place. She navigates her zoom meeting as she quickly hands over mom’s prescription drugs to her. She is on her way to pick up the twins from school and as mum tries to recount her experience for the day, she responds with a sharp “not now mom. We will catch up when I come over on Saturday”. With that Toru sails out the door and contemplates the fastest route to the twins’ school to avoid traffic.

Come Saturday, Emi eagerly awaits the visit of her only daughter – Toru and prepares Onunu, the favorite meal of the twins. After a hearty lunch, the children run off to play with the neighbour’s children while mother and daughter settle down to their usual weekly tete-a-tete.

Toru begins “Mom, you look exquisite. So natural, fresh and relaxed. Was it not for your strands of grey hair you could easily pass for my elder sister? In fact, my friends are always teasing me and commending your looks. The stress of the times just doesn’t seem to leave its mark on you, meanwhile, I remember when we were growing up, you were always so busy with the shop, I determined never to grow up running a shop. It just seemed so stressful”.

Emi responds “Baby girl, the years between 20 and 50 constitute the “Hustle phase of life”. You feel you must make it or break it especially as you look forward to a stable life by age 50. At the same time as you are building a career/ business, you are juggling home, and investing for the future, while keeping up with the Joneses. Life is a whirlwind at that phase. Believe me, when I say, I can identify with you.”

She continues: “However, given that the average life expectancy is 70-80 years, the phase between the ages of 50 and 80 should be spent in quiet repose enjoying the simple things of life. The tranquility and serenity with which you face life at this point emanates from within and exudes a radiance that gives a youthful glow to the skin. This, my dear daughter, is what can be referred to as graceful aging”.

Toru too responds “Mom…mom and her rhetoric. “I guess the real question is – what do you need to do to achieve graceful aging”?

LinkedIn Recommendation Story Follow Up

I shared one of the tweets in my Twitter thread (about an ex-colleague who asked another ex-colleague, whom he did not have a smooth working relationship with, for a LinkedIn recommendation) as my WhatsApp status and one of the chats I got is worth sharing as a blog post.

The tweet I shared as my WhatsApp status

Join the conversation on Twitter

I used the caption in the picture below. The respondent gave her permission for me to share the chats and wishes to remain anonymous.

The caption in my WhatsApp status

Hmmm. This is tough ooo. That’s why people must learn that aside meeting work deliverables, having good relationships is key.

As a manager, I am big on soft skills and relationships. Everything will pass away. It’s only relationships you can take along with you.

I spent my career chasing targets and deliverables. Now, I just want to treat people like human beings and celebrate people’s uniqueness.

I just believe EVERYONE has genius and I want people to believe it, see it and express it.

As a senior team lead, my boss says I am not tough enough. Before I used to feel bad when she said it but now that I know its my calling, I own it with my full chest.

I know my identity and accept my space But then she knows my style is effective and acknowledges it sometimes.

My first boss made me contemplate suicide and almost not marry my husband by speaking hurtful words to me. I don’t want that for anyone at all. All in the name of meeting targets and getting promotion.

DO NOT TREAT YOURSELF BY YOURSELF

August 8, 2018

Story 1

One of my people had been complaining of not feeling well. My general recommendation usually is “Go to the hospital”. After saying it a few times without results, I caned my lane.

I’m not sure what finally got through to her but God being so gracious, she finally decided to go to the hospital. She had been self-medicating, treating malaria. After a series of tests, she was diagnosed with low blood count (abi something like that).

After a few days of adhering to the doctor’s instructions, she felt better. Somebody shout alleluia! To God be the glory.

Story 2

The driver of the taxi I boarded yesterday was complaining about one strange headache that came suddenly. We were both stuck in the vehicle anyway, so I took time to advise him about going to the hospital asap. I pray he takes heed.

Unsolicited Advice

All of you that will be concocting medicine upandan as a DIY personally trained doctor… It’s all “fun” till you damage a vital organ…

If you are not feeling well, head to the hospital… This life is only one o… Don’t use your own hand to do yourself…

I repeat, if you don’t feel well, DO NOT TREAT YOURSELF BY YOURSELF… Head to the hospital! You will be alright by God’s grace.

Those of you cooking meat with paracetamol, una don hear about person wey village people dey pursue and him/her sef come dey use “slow motion” run. Won ma get e…. Dem go catch am…

Don’t let village people win this match. One of my lecturers once told us that every drug is poison; use only when absolutely required.

The Bridge Over River Choluteca

Have you heard of the Choluteca Bridge? I hadn’t either, until not so long ago. It’s a 484-metre-long bridge over the river Choluteca in Honduras, in Central America. A region was notorious for storms and hurricanes. 

So when they decided to build a new bridge over river Choluteca in 1996, they wanted to ensure it would withstand the extreme weather conditions. A Japanese firm was contracted, and they built a solid bridge, designed to withstand the powerful forces of nature. The new Choluteca bridge – a modern-day marvel of design and engineering was thrown open to the public in 1998. And as people drove from one side of the Choluteca river to the other, they couldn’t help but admire the new bridge. It was Choluteca’s pride and joy.

And in October that year, Hurricane Mitch hit Honduras. There was approximately 1 900mm of rain in four days – the equivalent of what they receive in six months. There was devastation all around. The river Choluteca swelled and flooded the entire region. 7000 people lost their lives. All the bridges in Honduras were destroyed. All, except one. The new Choluteca bridge remained unaffected. 

But there was a problem. While the bridge was intact, the road leading to it and the road leaving it was swept away. Leaving no sign that there was once a road there. And that’s not all. The flooding forced the river Choluteca to change course. It created a new channel, and the river now flowed beside the bridge. Not under, but besides the bridge. So while the bridge was strong enough to survive the hurricane, it became a bridge over nothing. A bridge to nowhere.

The Bridge Over River Choluteca


It happened years ago. But the lesson from the Choluteca bridge is more relevant to us today than ever before. The world is changing in ways we may have never imagined. And the Choluteca Bridge is a terrific metaphor for what can happen to us – our careers, our businesses, our lives – as the world around us gets transformed. Adapt to change. Or else.

As you look at your career, think again before taking one more course that makes you even more of an expert in your area of specialization. That role, that expertise might soon become redundant. Before spending money on refurbishing your old office, pause. Thinking of opening more branches in every nook and corner of the country? Think again. Physical office spaces could soon be a thing of the past.

The challenge for us is that we get focused on creating the best solution to a given problem. We forget that the problem itself might change. We are all focusing on building the strongest, most sophisticated product or service. Without thinking of the possibility that the need could vanish. The market could change. We focus on the bridge. And ignore the possibility that the river underneath could change course. Think about that too. ‘Built to Last’ might have been a popular mantra. But ‘Build to Adapt’ could be the way to go. 

You might want to add a picture of the Choluteca Bridge to the paintings that adorn the walls of your classrooms. We need to build a school that can adapt to change. The Theory of Evolution: Charles Darwin, in his studies, found that “It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change”.
