You are so self-important because all of a sudden things seem to be well with you…
You are now so arrogant, all of a sudden you have forgotten when you used to beg to eat…
You feel so privileged, you don’t care about the sick and hungry…
And what is more annoying?
You are going about the whole place SCREAMING that you want to change and save something!

Everyone is saving something now👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Save the trees…
Save the cockroaches…
Save the dogs…
Save the bla bla bla…

And the height of arrogance…
Save the earth!
Are you serious?
Save the earth?

You don’t even know how to take care of people…
You haven’t learned how to care for one another.
And you want to save the earth?
Hilarious and annoying too!!!

Hey Mr brain dead and self important,
There is nothing wrong with the earth in the first place.
The earth is fine.
The people are messed up !
You are messed up!
Leave the earth alone!!!
Compared to the people, the earth is marvellous.
It’s been here for billions of years . . .
The earth will be here even when we leave.
And we will leave.
The earth isn’t ours, we are just being accommodated by it yet we forget our stay is temporary and want to overburden the earth!

We are leaving one day.
Stop amassing wealth for generations unborn and care for the people you see.
When you are gone, there will be no sign of you left.
The only sign will be the people you have cared for and the things you have done to make the earth more beautiful than how you met it.
Thank God for that.
The earth will be here, and we will be gone.

The Right Stage Charity/Empowerment Project by Marilyn Oma Anona is 2 years old.

#therightstage CHARITY/EMPOWERMENT PROJECT is 2 years.
It all started like a joke right in my office at Wuse. It was in the evening. I and my “Personal Assistant” at the time were working late.
We were brain about a lot of things but I have always been worried about the millions of children, teenagers and young adults that fit into the target audience of my TV talk show “THE OMALIVING SHOW” but don’t have access to the tv or at least the social media.

Like a joke, the idea dropped and the name dropped same time.

I called my girl and told her immediately… and again the slogan dropped and that is the project we see today.

It has been a very hectic, tiring and rigorous journey. The reason why we are still going on is passion and the real love to actually make positive impact in the society.

We had our first outing on the 5th of May, 2015. About 6 public schools in the FCT were visited. Students and pupils were empowered. Scholarship was given to 5 people, empowerment items were given and gifts were given. The students and pupils were taken on an excursion to Barcelona hotel and refreshment was provided for them.

An inter schools contest was organised and winners were selected.

AIT gave #therightstagecharityandempowermentproject the publicity it deserved.

So far, more than 30 schools have been visited in 3 states. This project is needed if we really desire a better society in future.

Going to these schools, IDP camps etc exposed us t the many needs of these young people. If we neglect them, nagging issues that hamper and impede development will keep rising, vices will keep rising and that means disaster for us all.

This is a nationwide project and great support, sponsors is needed.

We are calling on corporate organisations and well meaning individuals to key into this project.

THE RIGHT STAGE CHARITY/EMPOWERMENT PROJECT is specially appreciating everyone who has supported us in one way or the other all this time.
May God bless you all.

They need it, but lack it… let’s give it to them!

Unwanted pregnancies.

Unwanted pregnancy can ruin your life and impede your growth.

I have cried for most part of today because of what a young woman is passing through.
Her life has not been the same because she took in and brought forth children at a time in her life when she didn’t need them.

I thank God for the spirit that led her to me. She was thinking suicide because life has become unbearable. Her family even despise her for getting pregnant out of wedlock.

The father of the kids does not care and does not send a penny to her for the upkeep of these children and she is just on her own.

Feeding is a problem…
She needs to go back to school and finish up but she can’t because there is no money…
She can’t get a job in the village and can’t leave the village because her mum says she won’t leave the kids with her.

See how the life of a 26 YO old woman is going.

Please ladies… Protect yourselves!
Nobody will be there for you.

Most spinsters cannot even feed themselves so imagine adding kids to the picture.

It’s not easy taking care of children. Nobody should deceive you.

If you are in school, concentrate on your studies first… Leave man till you are prepared and can shoulder any thing that comes out of it!

The guy will impregnate you and go about his normal business. You will be shamed and ridiculed. The stigma is all yours.
Please think!!!

If an independent woman of 28 and above decides to take in, i won’t be bothered! It’s their decision. Maybe they want to be single mothers.

But if you still live with your parents, you still depend on them for fees and upkeep…
You have no business getting pregnant!

In my opinion, school girls should not be having sex.
Having boyfriends doesn’t mean you must have sex.

Learn from the mistakes of others.

At the end of the day, everyone who is encouraging you and giving you temporary shoulders to lean on will go home and you are alone with the reality of things.

Dear ladies, protect yourselves!
I don’t want to hear, it’s better to keep it than abort it. What I am saying is, no pregnancy in the first place till you are ready for it.

Dear mothers, I know it’s not your wish to have your daughter come home with pregnancy and no husband to be. It is painful. I don’t want to be in such shoes. But then if it happens, despising her is the last thing you should do. Don’t frustrate her further. She didn’t just disappoint you, she disappointed herself. Love her and don’t give neighbours and friends room to victimise and stigmatise her even more. Love her despite the mistake.

Dear men, the same advise of waiting till you are ready goes to you. Boys that can’t properly take their bath should have no business with sex. And the ones that have managed to start bathing well, please shoulder your responsibilities. Don’t abandon a lady you impregnated. It’s the height of wickedness to do so. Take care of those kids. Try.

Dear society, the baby mama has made a mistake. It’s staring her in the face. Stop despising her. Children are still blessings. Being a baby mama or having a child out of wedlock is not the worst thing anybody can do besides it’s not your business. If you can’t assist them, please leave them alone.

Other men, please stop taking advantage of the predicament of these ladies. It’s unfair. Empower them if you but sleeping with them because they need help and insulting them when they refuse is very animalistic. Respect yourself and stop assuming the position of God.

A woman who has children out of wedlock can still become whatever she wants to be.
They are not half human.


Marilyn Oma Anona writes: The pulse of the common man.


Saturday the 8th of April, 2017 was very eventful.
A noble movement initiated and led by a patriot Prince Henry Nwazuruahu Shield and some intelligent, energetic and passionate youths who are eager to see the society transformed took place.
It was a Saturday and a good day to lie in bed. But these young people took a trip to the hinterlands of Abuja/Nasarawa to know how the commoners, the not so privileged and the masses are coping in this economic hardship.

It was very expository… For the first time I got to know what a mudu is!
I have always heard mudu but I imagined it to be very big.
Yesterday I discovered it was just a small bowl.

One thing is clear…
Many Nigerians are suffering!
Crime rate has increased!
People are angry!

Question is…
How do we get out of this mess?

This is not a question of APC/PDP.
But a quest for improvement in the living conditions of Nigerians.

It’s sad that people can not afford to feed despite how hard they toil. They can’t pay for a roof over their heads and can not afford basic health care.

Most of us have been so passionate about BBNAIJA and followed it consistently for the past 3 months…
I wish for the same passion in following noble causes!

If we can be this passionate, a lot of things will change for good.
Our destiny is in our hands.

Thanks to everyone that came out yesterday.
Some of them are;

Folashade Samuels fondly known as MAMAJAZZ turns 40 today the 23rd of March, 2017. To mark her birthday, a private party which was basically prayer session organised by her church “THE THRONE HOUSE” Abuja, her family and close friends was held this morning at her residence. It was an intensive prayer session.

After the 2hours of prayers and strong biblical teachings from her pastors, the celebrant and host treated her guests to variety of food and drinks.

Folashade Samuels is an icon who has touched the lives of many people in the society. Her humility despite having achieved a lot is so impressive. She is humane and very kind hearted and indeed one worthy of emulation.

When asked how she has managed to maintain a high level of humility despite being an achiever, she said she attributes it to her nature, upbringing, experiences and the type of man she is married to.

Mrs Folashade Samuel is a happily married woman who takes it upon herself to encourage and inspire young women about marriage.
She loves her husband so much that you can tell just 30 minutes after meeting her.

She is a wonderful woman and we celebrate her on this day.

Mrs Folashade Samuel is the owner of THE SKIN CENTER a high tech skin care and dermatology outfit in Abuja. She is also the owner of MORE FOR LESS BOUTIQUE also located in Abuja.

Her nickname “mamajazz” was coined from her daughter’s name Jasmine.

Marilyn Oma Anona writes: she said the body odour is a spiritual attack.

Body odours are bad. It’s one thing that can irritate every normal human being in minutes. Many are impatient with it and do not have the time to offer solutions… So they just dismiss you and never want to have you around them!
For some of us that would want to help either by telling you privately or buying you deodorant and colognes, most times we enter into trouble being so kind.

I have come in contact with people men and women who have body odour.

While some are temporary as a result of over sweating and repeating clothes… It seems some are permanent and more dangerous.

Either way, body odour is bad and can cost you a lot of things.

In 2014, I met a very pretty lady with a nice figure but she has this bad odour that makes every room she enters smell as though a decomposing corpse is there.
Everyone despised her. One day I decided to talk to her and I was glad when she said she knows about her problem and explained how it has cost her a lot of good things especially friends and romantic relationships.

I tried to tell her things she should do to get rid of or at least minimise the bad odour but she confused me when she said the BODY ODOUR was a spiritual attack that she never had it before. She said it was a tool by her enemies to always disgrace and embarrass her!

Wow! I exclaimed.
Whatever it is, just try and be 10 times cleaner.
Shave pubic hairs, never repeat clothes, wash your body often, use deodorants and of course pray fervently to God for deliverance since you said it is spiritual.
I was happy she took all I said well.

She opened up that she is so depressed concerning the situation. And promised to do all I have said.

Body odour is a great problem and what makes it worse is we live in the tropics.
Those in the temperate regions can get away with a lot of unhygienic practices… But honey please don’t try it here!

What are the causes of Body Odour?

Apart from hygiene, there are several other cause of body odour.

It could be the food you eat!
Infections can make ooze bad odours!
Birth control pills can also cause odours!
It could be that you have sweaty feet!

What ever it is, try so much to eliminate or control whatever it is that makes you smell.

Ladies, you may claim to be neat but repeating your bra ie wearing a bra for over 3 days without washing can make you smell. There is this subtle odour most people don’t perceive that only sensitive people perceive… Dirty bra odour!
Please wash your bras at least after the 3rd day.

And guys, oh my God! That shorts you wear all through the week. The odour makes one want to puke! Stop being lazy… Wash often!

Guys, please if you have sweaty feet… Always air your shoes! This is applicable to some ladies too.

Body odour is not a good thing… It’s very bad!
Please try to be presentable and acceptable in all ways and not just by makeup or the clothes you wear.

Stay inspired!

Marilyn Oma Anona writes: Its our turn now!

I often hear a lot of people complain and blame their parents for not giving them the good life they would have loved to have.

I hear some always quick to say that their other age mates are enjoying more because of their parents’ influence.

I hear some people say lots of things that make me get really upset.

Your parents did their best and were at least able to give you food, clothe you, and send you to college… They have more than tried!
They have done their best and at certain point, you should start taking care of them or feel sad for not being able to take care of them.

I have never for a second blamed my parents for not giving me diamonds… Nope!

I am super proud of them and truly appreciate all their efforts. I saw my dad forgo most of the things he loves just to make me and my siblings comfortable.
I watched him sweat all day just for us.
I watched him go through pains, all that were for us.

I watched my mother stand close to him giving her support… They more than tried!

I will be an idiot and a first class ingrate to ever insinuate that my parents didn’t do enough!
They did more than enough!

And truly I feel I owe them!
I owe my dad everything…
And daily, I pray to God to bless me to give him the things I wish to give him now that he is alive and healthy!

I owe him a good car!
I owe him a better house or at least to totally renovate the existing ones!
I owe him holiday trips to choice destinations!
😢😢😢 dear lord, please do bless my hustle.

Remember there are people who are orphans but doing exceptionally well today without even college degrees.

Fellow young people…
Please stop blaming your parents!
Stop blaming them for not being Bill Gates and not performing all the miracles you wish for!

It’s our turn now…
Pray to God to bless you to bless them and also be that miracle working father or mother to your children.

Stay inspired.
