Reality Check: Public Psychiatric Services in my city


#realitycheck what’s the service to expect in a public Psychiatric unit with one psychiatrist for a population of I can’t count? It’s just 6:42 am and we met like 30 other books there. The shrink might come and say his cap for today is 30 and we will have to go home and come two days later or next week if that’s the roster. And since it’s a follow up consultation, if we don’t get consulted today we’ll have to pay to be seen next week. Now admitted I had worked here and can play small privilege fiddle, but what about those who don’t know no one and are really sick but poor and can’t afford private services? This is the reality in my city and although there are probably some missionary health units who provide Psychiatric services, it’s much farther from me, and it was the best decision I could advice given the time, circumstances and resources available. Do I need to talk about the time the consultations will actually start and the service and etc? My sister brought her lunch knowing she might leave here this evening hahahahaha. I will try my best and leave the rest to God. Am currently standing in some corner for there are not even enough benches for the patients with one of them already broken (maybe the same one I left two years ago lol). I also hope rain didn’t enter into the shrink’s office if not that will have to be cleaned up first before he starts consulting hahahahaha (that’s how I started my internship here). Can I say again #thereishope please ooooooo #mentalhealthmatters

I take part in a dance challenge with my sons to raise funds for H4AB


Mansa Musa Dance Challenge: A vote for team MAGnifique is a vote for Hope for the Abused and Battered

You don’t take part in a dance challenge at 41 unless you have reasons like I do (am no musician nor professional dancer o)

I have an organization and we need to raise funds by all means including dancing why not.

So, in addition to the above I dance to break stereotypes about what an African woman should do or not do at such an age; should wear or not wear too.

I am grateful my sons joined in willingly. The last is the king you see, the second is the King’s favourite guard, and the first was the camera man.

Mansa Musa just returned from a successful Hadj to Mecca and is in high spirits.

Like our clip, leave a comment of love and share so others do the same.

And please do not forget to check out the full song on their YouTube Channel @NPro Street Record Label, with gratitude to its founder Akeem Williams De Puzo

Movie Review: WOMAN by Goretti


Wow Happy New Year Blogsphere,

I almost thought I had given up blogging on wordpress lol.

But, when one of your heroines produces a movie with the single word WOMAN, you stay up at night and watch, and you watch it again in the office, actually binge watch on your both gadgets lol.

So, Goretti who I described a few years ago as shooting for the moon, released her epic movie WOMAN onto the world wide web.

Let me just share the description on the channel, while encouraging or even plead with you all to watch, share and why not leave a review too so it helps dem in their analysis and preparation for part 2 right?

Meet Angoh, Manga and Rachel, the three it took to tango. Angoh is the unsuspecting wife who gets blindsided by her sneaky husband. Manga is the husband, who likes to eat his cake and have it too. Rachel is the bitch we all like to hate, the home-wrecker, and the one who ‘stole’ someone’s husband or did she?
‘Woman’ poses the question that many of us refuse to consider. Should the blame be equally shared by all three or none?
Is this just another lame case of the very brain-washed rhetoric ‘He’s just a man, they are weak and prone to mistakes’ or should there be a renewed pride and dignity demanded by women to reject that kind of excuse?
Truth is, there is a different breed of women emerging from behind the shadows, they are called ‘Woman’ they raise their head in self-love and only lower their heads to admire the path upon which they walk.
