THE WORD "AKATA" IS A DEROGATORY SLUR!!
Omo yall know that I am easily annoyed lmao. And I will admit, i swear if not for chari and buttercup I would not be able to be following the good blogs I follow today. Like chari helped me follow most of the blogs I follow now, so since Chari retire I have had to follow blogs by myself. See me see wahala, yesterday I clicked on somebody's profile so I can see their blog so I can follow it. Only for me to see that the person has 5 blogs, I come dey vex. I can understand people having 2 blogs or even 3 blogs. But 5 blogs is pushing it. What exactly are u writing that you need 5 blogs in other to pen your thought process. Na wa o. Anywayz I decided to follow only one, what else could I do? *sigh*.
Anywayz to a more important Marra.
Was watching a Rerun of Oprah yesterday and there was this woman who won a million dollar lottery and they asked her what she did with the money, she said she spent some and then gave a significant amount to her church. Omo I almost choked, it would be a very cold day in hell if I ever won the lottery and then decided to give the money to a church. Not that what she did was bad o, but for me myself I would not do it.
Omo I can't lie anymore I miss Enoch o, was so bored yday that I went to start reading some of his previous posts. That guy makes/made a lot of sense. Especially his first post about how "religions" are created. It still wows me. I then began to think, all of us know that there is nobody like SANTA CLAUS but every year we talk about him like he really exists. Our kids think that he exists, a lot of money is spent every christmas time because of the myth surrounding Santa Claus. And if you really think about it, we lie to our kids everytime we tell them that Santa Claus is coming. What happens the day that a kid claims to have seen Santa Claus forreal? Will we believe such a child? It just got me thinking and I had to go read Enoch's post on how religions are made. I swear small by small if we let this Santa Claus story simmer, one day Santa will become a deity that people avidly believe in. If yall have time, check out Enoch's post on Religion.When one person suffers from delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.
So guys mehn, I did not know that the word "akata" meant "Wild animal" in Yoruba.... I always thought it meant African Americans. My friend told me it meant Wild Animal.. I was so pissed when I found out that was what it meant. I would get annoyed if an oyinbo person called me a "nigger" but all the while I was calling Black Americans "Wild Animals"... Please for those of you who use that "akata" word, abeg stop using it. It's not right and it's not even funny.
Anywayz to a more funny matter, why does it seem like every church in Naija has offering for building fund? No matter how big their current church building is, the church will still have building fund? After awhile man pikin will start to wonder what manner of "building" this people are trying to build? Tower of Babel? Or abi na Noah's ark? Lmfao. But forreal though, you guys should check to see if what am saying is true.. They always have building fund in all them churches lolmao.
Lastly, l was watching tv on bunibuni.com and I watched all the live show of AY's live show. Damn, that ish had me rolling on the floor laughing my ass off.
