|Nairaland / General / Re: I Better Pass My Neighbor Solar Inverter System For 180K by generalpelu(m): 1:36am On Oct 14|
I actually don't know where you saw the battery size you're talking about.
That's a 40ah battery.
But for the package I advertised, it comes with a 60ah used battery. Thanks.
|Nairaland / General / I Better Pass My Neighbor Solar Inverter System For 180K by generalpelu(m): 9:46am On Oct 13|
Just ₦180000, small business owners like barbers, hair stylists, fashion designers, and other petty traders can say GOODBYE to generators and high fuel price.
This solar will power your business effectively. Consider buying ₦1000 fuel everyday, in just 6 months you've spent over ₦180000. This solar is a wise choice.
You can even borrow money from LAPO to get it, then you start to refund them your daily fuel money (don't worry, you won't pay for this advice 😁😁).

Wouldn't you take advantage of such a plan? Much details in the flyer. Message me now to know more.
|Nairaland / General / Solar Inverter System by generalpelu(m): 10:02am On Sep 29|
A solar inverter system is a system that comprises of a solar panel, an inverter, and a battery. It's as simple as that. Although there might still be one or two devices attached to the system as need be.
Many people don't know they can have this system supply them adequate power without breaking their bank.
I'm here to tell you that you don't need so much as you might have thought.
With just ₦150k, you can get a small system that will give you adequate power supply for bulbs, fans, and perhaps a television. Yes, a TV.
First, you need adequate information on the system. I'll give you that.
Swipe up, let's talk.

I've been using a used battery for a year. Used batteries doesn't translate bad batteries.
Let's assume you buy a new 100AH battery today, and decides to upgrade to 220AH in a month. You may want to sell the 100AH. Does it make it bad just because you've used it?
|Nairaland / General / You Can Get "I Better Pass My Neighbor" Solar System With Just 150k by generalpelu(m): 4:48pm On Sep 07|
Since May of this year, Nigeria and Nigerians witnessed a new dispensation in the cost of livelihood and enjoying basic amenities. Cost of power being the major.
Ever since fuel subsidy removal, Nigerians have been forced to cut their coats, not according to their clothes, but cut it off. Logically, power solar system is the alternative to the high cost of getting power. But the cost of installation running into hundreds of thousands has been a barrier.
I came bearing good news...
I can install a small setup for you with just ₦150000.
With that amount, you can get a small solar system that can power your flat screen television, decoder, laptop and phone chargers, bulbs, and fans. I believe these are basics.
The money will get:
1000W Inverter @ ₦20000
Charge Controller @ ₦20000
150W Panel @ ₦40000
40AH Battery (Used) @ ₦30000
Cable @ ₦20000
Installation @ ₦20000
The beauty of this small system is that you can decide to upgrade whenever you want. You just need to add to the battery and get more panels.

|Literature/Writing Ads / Stop Hiding Your Benefactors by generalpelu(m): 8:44pm On Aug 30|
People help you, and you decide to cover their identity so that others won't go request help from them. I don't want to understand any explanation you give to this attitude, but it's a very wrong one.
First, do you want to tell me you knew this benefactor of yours from Adam?
Second, do you want to tell me someone else didn't introduce you to them?
Third, if others have shielded this benefactor the way you're shielding them and fleecing them alone, would they have helped you?
You need to stop this narcissistic attitude. No be only you need help. Let your benefactor decide if they will help others or not. Don't be the decider. They're not alive to help you alone. The sky is wide enough to accommodate all birds.
As a person, I'll never hide my benefactor. It is left to Him to give you listening ears or offer help. You can even go there to spoil me. It is left to Him to believe you or not. Water wey man go drink no go ever swim pass am.
My benefactor: God 😁

|Literature/Writing Ads / Re: Olajumoke, The Bread Seller & Co. by generalpelu(m): 10:47pm On Aug 08|
PS: Article written on the 15th of May, 2020.
|Literature/Writing Ads / Olajumoke, The Bread Seller & Co. by generalpelu(m): 10:45pm On Aug 08|
In February of 2016, Olajumoke Orisaguna, a bread seller photo bombed TY Bello, in a photo session of the British rapper, Tinie Tempah at Olonode street, Yaba, while hawking bread.
Bello noticed her when she was editing the pictures and decided to find her. She found her and photographed her. The story was reported in various media, including CNN and BBC Africa.
She appeared at the front cover of quite a number of magazines as she rose to prominence. She became a model with some endorsements. And life changed for her.
Towards the end of March, 2017, one Olaoluwa Ayodeji (@pabloayodeji) took to the street of Twitter to sub a lady Oreoluwa Oyebola (@missmoshiku), calling her broke ass and hungry bitch because Oreoluwa turned down his advances for a relationship after having a movie date with him which cost him N3800.
On seeing the tweet, Oreoluwa listed everything Ayodeji spent at the date (movie) which was N3800 and sent him N5000, telling him to #KeepTheChangeBruh as the bank transfer narration. Screenshot the transfer receipt and replied his sub with that.
Boom! It was a huge trend.
First bank picked it first, giving Oreoluwa back her money. Many other brands used the occasion to advertised their business and Oreoluwa made huge gain from that trend.
The rest is history.
Success, the Warri girl
It was also in the days of March in 2019 that the story of Success Adegor who was sent home because she was yet to pay for the exam fee which was N900 went viral.
Success was going home angrily when a neighbor, Stephanie asked her what was wrong. She answered and was acting funny. Stephanie recorded the scene and sent it on WhatsApp.
Boom! Facebook and Twitter picked it up.
The video attracted the attention of the government to her school and other schools around which needed renovation.
Success got some scholarships. She also got some endorsement deals.
Dele, the ATM Girl
This time around, it was February's turn again this year, as little Dele's picture shot at FCMB's ATM gallery by Bada Maruf, doing her homework went viral on Twitter.
She got the spotlight. With a number of promises by some bodies and individuals. FCMB in particular awarded her scholarship to university level and gave her N1m.
It appears when Providence wants to bless a man, he wakes up without knowing what would be for the day and his story just turn around for good.

|Literature / Good Clients Won't Stress You by generalpelu(m): 7:58pm On Jul 16|
I started scouting for writing gigs on Nairaland in 2020. It was a very tough time for me financially.
I submitted interest in working for a guy who said he needed articles every day for a blog. The articles were to be an average of 500 words each day. We agreed on ₦1/word (not agreed though, he said he would pay...lol). I accepted because it was something at the time. I wrote several samples to prove my craft. And at the end, he left me hanging.
Soon, I met another guy who needed a rewriter. I applied. He gave me samples to rewrite. He was content with one and not with the other. He didn't get in touch any longer.
I was getting fed up about this endless sample writing. I upped my game. I began tackling low payment on the platform. Some outsourcers told me that I'll never get gigs with my attitude. I told them I don't need gigs from slavers (clients who stress you) like them.
As Providence would have it, this lady reached out to me in February 2021. She needed my services for long term. She asked that we discuss price, and we agreed on ₦1.70 (a far better price than what outsourcers do pay at the time). We kick-started and boom. My first pay was a 10000 word e-book at ₦17300. The second was ₦34000. And that was how we rolled for 2021. God bless you, Lammy.
Funnily, I don't even know her here. I don't know her username. I don't know which of my write-ups she saw here that made her reach out. But it was without stress.
With time, I got several other clients here. I avoided the stressful ones. As we say in our local English parlance, "who go epp you no go stress you." Good clients won't stress you.
Check me out... I'm that writer you need. My contact is in my signature... I'll be expecting you.
|Health / Re: Not Only AS And AS That Shouldn't Marry. This Blood Group Needs To Watch Out Too by generalpelu(m): 10:52pm On Jul 15|
What is quit?
Quitted is correct. But you're even a funny being. You dey correct one supposedly wrong word out of about 300 words.
|Health / Not Only AS And AS That Shouldn't Marry. This Blood Group Needs To Watch Out Too by generalpelu(m): 1:35pm On Jul 15|
There's this lady I got to know who's been struggling to have a child. She loses the pregnancy anytime she takes in. She's lost several pregnancies. It seems her village people are on her case.
I got to know her through a friend who's their church member (I won't mention the name of the church). The thing is when they get pregnant, it's the congregation's maternity home they must use for antenatal. You know, these mummies might be well experienced in delivery matters, but they are not well knowledgeable about many things.
Anytime she loses a pregnancy, they kept attaching the loss to a spiritual attack.
When I heard the case, I asked about her blood group. I told my friend that her blood group might cause the loss. My friend asked her to go have a blood test. And my suspicion came true: AB-. She's rhesus negative. She was suffering from rhesus incompatibility.
She secretly started seeing a medical doctor who guided her through. She got an anti-D against the rhesus incompatibility. Last Tuesday, she was delivered of a bouncing baby girl.
See, it's not every time that village people are the cause of our predicament. Ignorance is a village person. Many of us don't know about blood rhesus.
It was in 2014 I first learned about blood rhesus. It happened that I had quitted my relationship after discovering that myself and the lady are both AS. After a while, I went for a second test to be sure of my genotype. The lab technician did the blood test and came out with the same result as the first.
We got talking, and he told me that aside genotype, I must watch out for blood rhesus. I didn't know what it meant at the time. He explained to me. Rhesus factor is the positive or negative sign that the different blood group types carry: A+, A-, AB+, O-, etc. He told me that a woman with negative rhesus being on a subsequent pregnancy (not her first pregnancy) for a man with positive rhesus stands risk of losing the pregnancy or even her life. Except she gets a particular injection at the termination (either abortion or delivery) of each gestation period.
I'm not sure what I've explained here is 💯 percent correct. A medical personnel will do better. As a woman if your blood group is rhesus negative, see your doctor before taking in. It will save you a whole lot.
|Literature / He Found ₦200 But Lost ₦2000 by generalpelu(m): 8:00am On Jun 20|
Something happened last night and I've not stopped wondering how nature works.
I was going home, and I saw ₦2000 on the road in front of my house. In my character, I don't pick things I see anywhere. But I felt the owner must come around to look for it. And if I don't pick it, someone else might, and the owner won't get a chance to get their money back.
I picked it up and just waited in the compound to see anyone who would come look for it.
True to my prediction, someone passed and was looking so worried. I watched. She went to and fro, looking for what was lost. Then I called her and asked what the problem is. She told me she lost money. I asked for the amount and denominations. She said two ₦100. I told her I didn't see anything of such. She begged me if I can give her anything as she and her baby don't have anything to eat. Then I told her I found ₦2000 but that's not hers, maybe God wanted to give her more anyways. So I handed over the money to her so she could get more food for herself and the baby. She thanked me so much and left.
In less than a minute, someone else passed in the same fashion looking for what was lost. I asked him what happened after I noticed him pass to and fro. He told me he lost ₦2000. Me: 🤐🤐🤐. He said what makes him sadder is that he saw ₦200 on the ground and picked it up. Only for him to get home and found that his ₦2000 was lost.

|Literature / Is Pep Guardiola A Manager Or A Leader? by generalpelu(m): 6:08pm On May 09|
“Managers follow structures, leaders create them.”
John C. Maxwell
In 2008, Pep Guardiola accepted the job to replace Frank Rijkaard as coach of the Football Club Barcelona in Spain. The club had been without trophies for two seasons consecutively prior to the coming of Guardiola. He adopted the same style of play that was used while he was a player at the club – an attacking philosophy based on passing and it turned out to be greatly successful. In his first season, Pep Guardiola won the Copa Del Rey, Laliga and UEFA Champions League. He also went on to win the Spanish Super Cup, UEFA Super Cup and the Clubs World Cup. Making it six trophies won in 2009 under Guardiola, something that has no precedence in the history of European football. Pep went on to win fourteen titles out of a possible nineteen during the four seasons he spent as coach at Camp Nou.
Even after Pep left in 2012, Barcelona continued in their success under Tito Villanova, winning the Laliga league title; and Luis Enrique who won the Copa Del Rey, Laliga, and UEFA Champions League, a treble in 2015.
Pep already laid the structure. For the first few years of his departure from Barcelona, even a nonentity could lead Barcelona to win titles. The structure was already on ground. Very little work would amount to success.

Outsourcers, get in here...
I wonder why anyone will be paying a ridiculous amount as low as ₦2 or ₦3 per word, and be expecting a top notch job.
Some of you get jobs as high as ₦20/word, and come here to enslave others. Then come back to cry foul about how Nairaland writers are shîtty. No, we're not. You get what you pay for.
While I know that getting gigs from international clients ain't a walk in the park, I'll never outsource at such ridiculous percentage.
