For veteran actor, Jide Kosoko, taking time to sleep is very important and he does not trade it for anything, even money.

Speaking in an interview, he said that he ensures he gets at least seven hours of sleep every night and most people close to him know this about him.

He said, “I always sleep for seven hours, or even more. By 9 pm, I am already in bed, and a lot of producers know this about me. If I am to shoot at night, you should have told me earlier so that I would have slept in the afternoon before coming. But I will still sleep after the production. I know the importance of sleep to the human body and I get a lot of it.’

Meanwhile, Kosoko is not happy about the fact that stage plays are not taken seriously in this part of the world. According to him, he tries to contribute his quota to ensure that stage plays do not go into extinction.

The Walls Of Discrimination Amongs Human.

Image
"If a white man turned and called me, “Nigger”
My blood would boil in righteous anger
For the evil of discrimination is clearly established
Where a white man tries to treat me like rubbish

But if Hausas say Igbos are greedy and crude
And Igbos say Hausas are haughty and rude
And Ijaw says Itshekiri must die today
And Ezza tells Ezillo there is no other way

If Yorubas declare it is Awo or nothing
And we use “Federal Character” to share everything
So, before you can even smile and tell me, “Welcome”
You must first ask me where my father is from

If those who were settlers but now indigenes
Say those who are settlers can’t turn indigenes
While our Constitution says we are all citizens
Local Governments keep issuing Certificates of Origin

If my brother passed JAMB but can’t go to Uni
Because he is Tiv and he’s not Kanuri
And UniMaid has a quota for its catchment area
So, he must go back to Benue or wait one more year

If it’s okay to say it’s not okay to marry
Someone just because they are Kalabari
And th…

Reasons Why Prostitution Is Increasing In Nigeria- Pastor Adegboye.

Image
Pastor Samuel Adegboye of the General Overseer of Testimony Chapel, Ilorin, Kwara State, has blamed the rising spate of prostitution among young girls in the country to laziness and refusal to further their studies.

Speaking in Ilorin, Adegboye called on the Federal Government to impose a total ban on “the dirty business” in the country.

Adegboye said the government should create job opportunities which will be a panacea to prostitution in the country.

According to Adegboye, “Most young girls become lazy and not ready to further their studies since they have hope in operating as a social worker to survive.

“Imagine most hotels are being used to harbour commercial s*x workers where they have their own rooms to host their clients; at times, you will see them roaming the streets in search of clients without shame.

“Government must enact a law to ban such an evil business. It is becoming worse every day as some non-Nigerians will even come to practice such a dirty act in our dear country…
