Coming to Terms
I was in the boarding house in the
90's when I was first told of the
There was this babe in my class
She was beautiful and busty!
She was also the assistant class
My secondary school journey started
from Loyola College Ibadan, an
all-boys secondary school where all
you see are green knickers and green
checkered shirts all day!
No skirts, No blouse, no pinafore
Just brawns and bones
No softness and flesh
I hated that school
I was an academic disgrace in
My father was baffled at my
performance from day one
He couldn’t believe his son, the
brilliant one who cleared prizes
throughout primary school had
suddenly become a dunce.
It was the sea of knickers!
I didn’t know how to tell him at
I hated the all-boys thing
There was no motivation to stay
in class and concentrate
I used to leave school by 1 pm and
walk to Ikolaba Grammar school
(about three kilometers away from Loyola)
I will wait for them to close and walk
into the school just to look at all the
Some of my primary school friends
attended Ikolaba Grammar School
One of them, Bimpe Oyewola, was my
crush and I had to see her every day
So I suffered academically and barely
managed to get promoted to the next
My father threatened and begged
Nothing worked I even became worse
I started stabbing classes
All the Nuns and Beautiful teachers
were of no help to me
Eventually, my father changed my school
to Olivet Baptist High School Oyo!”
The school was mixed
There were girls
My academics picked up immediately
It was magical, even to me
Girls are divine!
By the end of my first term in Olivet,
everybody took notice!
I was the best student in Economics,
Biology and Geography
I was also the lead debater!
It was time to get myself a babe but
Titi Laniyan was born again!
It was like the Lion and the Jewel
I wanted the babe and she was
determined to give me Jesus
If I ask to see her after school hours,
she would ask me to meet her at the
students fellowship where all they
seemed to talk about was rapture
and Holy living before singing
“Ijoba Orun le’re onigbagbo o...”
I like the song but I thought they
were being foolish!
The Bible wrote expressly what will
happen in the last days
To my mind, this means such a thing
will never happen again! (At least not
word for word or as scripted)
Mark of the beast?
On the forehead or wrist?
No buying or selling unless you have
the mark! For real?
It made no sense
I was too intelligent
I couldn’t fall for such nonsense
But Titi was convinced it will happen
She would say to me
“Jesus is coming soon!
All these things you are looking at will
All sinners shall perish!
It was her defense against my love!
I used to listen to Celine Dion a lot
I had lyrics to unload But that babe
and her Jesus were Terminator like
They didn’t allow the deliberately
crafted honey tongue of mine to
deliver its poison!
As soon as I started talking and she
began to smile
As soon as she sat and began to sway
to my lyrics
Jesus would interrupt
That was 1996/97
I eventually forgot about Titi and
I dated Lola Oyenuga
My lyrics made magic with her
Then the world changed!
First it was BVN
Those without it were not allowed to
register for JAMB or carry out any
I told people it was very logical
As I woke up this morning it suddenly
dawned on me DigitalID has also
became logical now
I was at Surulere yesterday for the
I had to mingle with people
We took pictures People asked me if
I was sure none of them had Covid-19
Of course I wasn’t sure
But I would have been very sure if
they all had a tag on their head or
arm to show me!
I would have felt safe and
I would have been bold to post
the pictures without expecting a
backlash from the public
Our defense from infection seemed
to now depend upon our assurance
that the other people we are buying
and selling to or interacting with are
not carrying dangerous viruses that
we could take home to harm our
The chip and all it promised seemed
Titi Laniyan was right
The script was being acted out just as
it was written
I had thought it would be too obvious!
I was wrong!
I became a born again Christian on
September 27, 2007
I was not Born in Christ out of fear of
hell or missing the rapture
I was born into eternal life by a
I was born ready for such a time as this
I eagerly await and pray for the return
of the Lord Jesus as He has commanded
The time is quite short
If you are still skeptical or thinking it is
about religion at this time,
I will urge you to please check out
It is no longer about religion
If the facts check out with the
reality you are seeing, please don’t
be stubborn or defensive
You don’t have to tell the whole world yet,
they will know when you are proven right
And if I am wrong, you would have lost
So there is no harm in looking at the facts
and doing the logical thing here!
Just say this out loud for your own
ears to hear you and believe it
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner
and I ask for your forgiveness.
I believe you died for my sins and
invite you to come into my heart and life.
I want to trust and follow you as my Lord
Send me a message on
I am very willing to be an instrument of
the Holy Spirit to prepare you for the
snatching up of His own from the evils
It has never been about religion, race or
It has always been about Life & Death
When you chose Christ, you chose
eternal life in Him
