He shared his opinion and his experience and then gave a sound counsel based on both.
Please what's your own counsel to a 40 year old woman who needs at least a child before menopause.

You just took the life of a grown a$s man cus he refused to oral bacteria with you.

horsepower102:You people still don't understand northern politics. I prefer northern politics to everything I've ever seen in the South and MiddleBelt.
See how schools (tertiary education), transportation are in the north and compare it to the massive estortion going on in the public tertiary institution in the South.
In the South and MiddleBelt, everyone is a Prof and everyone wants to be a champ. See how Umahi and that Imo guy is selling out Igbos cheaply. Tell me, which northern politician would do that?
An average northern big man would do something tangible for his community. Doesn't matter how small. Borehole, culvert, streetlight, drainage system-things you hardly see in the South.
In the absence of oil money, the unity of the North would be a huge asset. If not for the insecurities and the religious factor ravaging the north, I'd prefer to live Kano than step foot in PH or even Abia

That's one. Now talk about the looted oyel money the northern politicians are using to build Dubai standard houses, businesses and infrastructures.
|Politics / Re: Rare Old Picture Of Onitsha, The Commercial City Of Anambra. by IAmSkinny: 8:08am On Oct 11|
I've been to Onitsha before and it's quite a beautiful city. Being a commercial city, the wuru-wuru was just too apparent.
But take it from me, Kano is still miles ahead of Onitsha.

Yes. He's very intelligent, well travelled and well travelled.
Most of posts are filled with wisdom.I grew to admire and respect him even more after discovering he's a huge anti-simp advocate.

I've watched a couple of his videos. He only scratches the surface plus ending up creating a lot of vagueness. I've read a couple of your threads before, infact I just finished the one that touches on cryptocurrency with Binace and I must confess I'd rather consume your contents.
PS: haven't watched this particular video

Stay sharp especially when you start getting gigs.
It's a jungle out there and some of your clients are out to eat you.
|Romance / Don't Deny Your Photographer Food At Your Wedding: A Nairalander's Experience by IAmSkinny: 8:46am On Oct 08|
With inspiration from this thread
Here's one of my many experiences:
Once upon a Saturday morning, woke up from bed and completed all the normal early morning rituals. I had nothing planned to do that day, so I swore on my thumb to sleep all day. After all, it was a holiday and I was visiting my familia.
Just when I was about to start my all-day sleeping routine, I got a ring from a photographer paddy.He wanted me to shoot a wedding-the couple were having serious photography problem. Hmmmm, last minute arrangements? A huge red flag.
I was reluctant at first and didn't want to move but colleague kept on ringing my phone so I decided to cancel my planned all-day sleeping tournament.
Packed my gears and hit my other guy (light assistant). Got to the venue, met the groom and discussed my rates. I asked for an 80% up-front payment but groom brought up some donkey and Shreck story spiced with promises of "you would get your pay, as soon as we round up.Don't worry"-another red flag.
At this moment, I wanted to just leave and go back home but my village people persuaded me to remain and do the job. Brothers and sisters, my village people are very powerful.
Wedding was supposed to start by 10AM but by 2PM, the officiating priest was no were to be found. Summary: Priest came around by 3:20PM and I and my assistant flew into action promptly.
Now at the reception, it was past way, way past lunch time (past 5pm by now) and I and my assistant had been working/waiting since 8am.
I was hungry, my assistant was as hungry as I was. But I had to be careful not to miss any important moment of the event. Sadly, we didn't come with food and the venue of the event was quite remote.
Leaving to go and source for food would be quite risky as every moment counts so I reached out to the caterers, when the couples went in for the routine outfit change. I was snubbed soundly.
I wasn't having any of that so I asked my assistant to pack. My intentions was to abandon the call-of-the-wedding and attend to the calling in my stomach. I had enough money for transport to the next town.
On my way out of venue, I met the groom's brother who apologized furiously after I told him why we were leaving. He took upon himself the task of ensuring we got something to pacify the war going on in our stomach.
Brothers and sisters, after the wedding, groom said no money. Claimed that my rates were high and hence, he would not be able to pay.
I figured out he planned to settle me with the donations and gifts from his guest. I guess they didn't deliver as much as he expected.
I wept like a baby inside and barked at him like a dog outside. Story for another day.
Dear intending couples, your hired photographer and videographer are amongst the most important invited people to guest. Without those two, memories of the day would be forever lost. We are not some random hungry folks with the intention of devouring all your burnt jollof rice. We have enough money for food but our breaks have to be timed properly so we don't end up missing anything. The least you guys can do is to cooperate with us and give proper instructions to caterers to work with our volatile time.
Y'all need to stop disrespecting photographers for any reason.
Dear photographers, if them no give you at least 80% advance, no go. Sidown for house. Always ensure you carry extra cash plus if you can bring your own food, please do and save yourself unnecessary drama
And for the rude bride's maid, just know you'll not appear in any of the wedding photographs. I've ensured that your presence at that wedding stays in the past.
