Omaliving Show and The Right Stage Project lead a campaign against jungle justice.

Marilyn Oma Anona

Anybody can be a victim!!!
Jungle justice does not help in any way.
Many innocent people have gone through this act/practice.
It’s the height of barbarism and can’t be justified.

Cassandra Anasioke


SAY NO TO JUNGLE JUSTICE.
It’s becoming a daily occurrence.
It doesn’t make it normal.
We should not keep quiet.
No to JUNGLE JUSTICE.
Anybody can be a victim.

“Marilyn Oma Anona” host and producer of @omalivingshow says a loud and vehement no to jungle justice.
This is a menace and many of us seem not to know how bad it has become.
It’s becoming a daily occurrence and some people see it as normal.
Jungle justice is unacceptable.
It has taken the lives of many innocent people .
The police and the court are there for a reason, and even though they have not been that wonderful…
Jungle justice should not take their place!

For weeks now, those who have followed me ardently would have noticed series of posts and articles I have written as regards this nagging issue.
It will also be a topic in an episode of the new season of #omalivingshow

We are starting a campaign, 1st online, then a seminar and a march.

If you are against jungle justice, mobbing and lynching…
Send a portrait photo of you. Your full name and social media handles plus a short note expressing your thought about this issue called #jungle justice.
Send in your entry to us.

This will first be done online, followed by a seminar and then physical sensitisation and enlightenment.

A lot of people don’t know the law and as such behave like animals.
There is need for a reform of the already existing law too so that perpetrators of JUNGLE JUSTICE can be punished.

Let us rise and say no to jungle justice.
It must stop.
Thank you.

POSHMARILYN POETRY AND POEMS: Hopeful yet Helpless by Abimbola Geraldine Salau.

Abimbola Salau

I wrote this poem thinking about the state of society.Its really heart wrenching to see people struggle and go through all forms of humiliation just to provide daily needs.The poverty rate in Nigeria is so appalling.These individuals need help.For the Love of mankind…

POEM
‘hopeful yet helpless’
In abject poverty and squalor,
They live in immense horror,
You see them from dawn to dusk,
Faces covered in a mask,
The common man who feeds from dirt-bread crust,
The man made from dust,

From sunrise to sunset;they toil,
Tilling the soil,
Praying for rain,
Not reminiscing the pain,
They are of high spirit,even in this difficulty
But who will we find faulty?
Is it those who feed till they are bloated?
While we are starved and repressed,
Is it those converged in the assembly?
While we cry with lips cracked dry!

Alas!
It is that time,
No sooner we believe their lies,
Heads and feet in lines,
You see them with bags and bags,
But here-after we return to our rags,
Hopeful yet helpless!
Again I say! Who will we find faulty?
We need an emancipation of our minds,
An overhaul of our spirit,
In our bodies,souls and hearts,
Then and only then will we be free from these bounds.

The Exemplary Father: Meet Chike Delic Obi and his son “young Delic”.

Chike Delic Obi and young Delic

The society seems to be concentrating on the females alone.
Every turn you take, you hear of and see programs and event all geared towards empowering and enlightening women. It is not a bad thing.

But without the males, the system won’t be so balanced and as such marital and relationship problems will continue. So the men also need to be empowered, enlightened, encouraged and celebrated.

Chike Delic Obi and his son

A good home needs to have a good father and a good mother. A good mother is not enough.

We know that the man especially in Africa has the traditional role of providing and fending for his household and this is likely to get him choked or deny him the opportunity of sharing the desired amount or level of bond and closeness with his children. But then, to be truly successful we must strive to be all rounded.

Chike Delic Obi

There are various aspects of every individual’s life and care should be taken to share and devote time to most of these aspects and fatherhood is not exempted.

What is fatherhood?
A quick definition may tell us that fatherhood is about getting a woman pregnant and having a child at the end of the day, providing for that child till he grows.

But providing for a child is just one aspect of the big job and it is not enough to make you a father.

A true and exemplary father must create time for his child or children to nurture and bond with them.

*** Nurture is not just for the woman.
*** Bonding is not just for the woman. *** Playing with the kids is not just for the woman.
*** Helping the kids out with their assignments is not just for the woman. *** Taking the kids out on a date is not just for the woman.
The examples are just inexhaustible.

Young Delic Obi

A good father must understand his roles. They are as much as a woman’s role. Bringing up children in a home requires the concerted efforts of the man and his wife in order to have children who are happy and balanced in their thinking and behaviour.

Today, “POSHMARILYN” features a Nigerian man who from all indication is an exemplary father.
His name is “CHIKE DELIC OBI”. He has such a busy schedule just like most men who reside in the US and do legitimate jobs. But Delic is seen with young Delic almost on daily basis.
The bonding is “out of this world” and makes most young and “yet to be” married females yearn to have a husband that will be such a father as Delic.

“CHIKE DELIC OBI” is not just an exemplary father but a very devoted, respectful and living husband.

In this age and time when negative stories of bad and broken marriages fill the media and social media space, a tour on his profile gives hope to people who are already giving up on society, marriage and family.

Chike Delic Obi is a father and a husband worthy of emulation.

We need more Wise mothers and more exemplary fathers in our society.

Be Enlightened! Be inspired! Be motivated!

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.

Postpartum depression (PPD), also called postnatal depression, is a type of clinical depression which can affect both sexes after childbirth.
Yes men also suffer from PPD but because we think it’s exclusive to women, these men suffer in isolation. Half of all men whose partners have postpartum depression are depressed themselves,”
Symptoms may include sadness, low energy, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, reduced desire for sex, crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability.

PPD is a big deal and like all other issues should not be overlooked. It has affected a lot of people, torn families apart and has an indirect effect on the society!

I totally support @psnafrica On the good work they are doing.
Building a stable society starts from the family… Well done!

@pineapplemodel

@pineapplemodel

The rate at which young people smoke these days is very alarming.
Sadly, smoking is seen as the new cool!
If you smoke, you are seen as civilised and exposed… And when you don’t, you are seen as timid!

Some even glorify and baptise it by saying they do shisha and not the conventional cigarette.

A smoker is a smoker and shisha is not better… It is only flavoured!

Smoking is bad!
Too detrimental to health!

They say; everything that has a disadvantage has an advantage… But I can’t think of any advantage smoking has.

Another sad thing to smoking is the fact that it is addictive. Most smokers start as teenagers and become overly addicted by adulthood!

By that time, some of them may honestly want to quit, but then it becomes difficult and requires strong discipline and determination to stop!

The major reason why most young people smoke is trend…
Second is peer influence…
Third is background and upbringing…
Fourth is the media ie the things we see in movies and music videos etc…
There are many other reasons but in all smoking is very bad and dangerous.

In the last few years, we have had cases of young people dying or very ill because a vital organ is damaged. We have had to contribute money for some of them to get adequate treatment. Some of these ailments come as a result of lifestyle.

Smoking leads to a lot of diseases, weakens the immune system, gives you bad breath, makes you age faster and gives you a horrible skin.

Smoking can also affect your behaviour adversely thereby putting you into a lot of trouble…
We should all say no to SMOKING!

Marilyn Oma Anona writes: Being successful isn’t dependent on the certificates you have.

Your level of formal education does not determine how successful you will be. Acquiring tons of certificates is not what is needed to make you great.
Formal education is very important… There is also nothing wrong with upgrading yourself if you really “need” to. I mean I need to upgrade in some areas too and I have my heart set on one of the IVY LEAGUE schools. But if you think that just acquiring papers is enough to make you great or successful, then you are a practical joker.
Being successful isn’t dependent on the certificates you have. It is dependent on who you are as a person… Do you possess certain traits?
Do you have goals?
What do you want out of life?
What drives you?

Let me tell you something…
Do you know that most people hide their weaknesses, laziness and inadequacies behind certificates?
When they now feel like they have acquired enough, they start to carry this huge sense of entitlement about. You often hear them say; “I have my PhD therefore I should be employed by so so and so. I have my M.Sc, I should be doing this and this.
Listen, if with all the papers you have acquired, you are still totally dependent on the society for job creation, then you are a total waste and burden!
Should the society not benefit from your so called wealth of knowledge? Why are you still a burden?
I should think that the essence of spending so much time and money plus energy to acquire a paper is to make our society better… Like I was saying, acquiring papers doesn’t make one successful!
More so what I see around are folks who have paper knowledge but totally disable when it comes to practice. They can define all terms but can’t put to practice what they have learned or claim to have learned… So what’s the point?
Many people really have no business acquiring these papers. For most, it has killed talents, natural abilities and lots more!
There are a lot of educated of people who are not successful because they do not know how to use what they know.
Having all the papers in the world cannot transform a dullard to a smart person.
To be successful, you need to be extremely smart, have set goals, hardworking, focused, be a risk taker and lots more…
