WhiteMoney and Pere: Lessons From The Saga

This BBnaija “Shine ya eye” edition has brought with it the usual drama we have to come expect of the show, and the latest drama is from WhiteMoney and Pere. Two men, yes. Unbelievable. Firstly, we are used to this sort of drama coming from the female gender. The two housemates recently came to loggerheads when Pere confronted WhiteMoney and accused him of asking a question in the Whisper game. He was wrong though, as was later revealed.

Subsequently, Pere refused to apologise. He said he had nothing to apologise to WhiteMoney for. Matters have kept unfolding since then and these are our thoughts so far:

WhiteMoney and Pere

What We Are Thinking…

1. You Can’t Argue Against Value. Pere banned WhiteMoney from the kitchen, saying he felt it was his strategy to be indispensable to the other housemates. No one can argue with value however. While it may be WhiteMoney’s strategy in truth, it’s a strategy that works. He manages the kitchen well! And his food is good if we are to believe what the housemates say. All the housemates have strategies anyway, at least this one is edible!

2. Learn Anger Management Now. People will always do or say things to provoke you and you won’t always be able to stop them. Improper anger management will cause you to be at fault even if you were right from the beginning. Learning how to fight properly is a skill we all need to learn.

3. Communicate Properly. Those in relationships will attest to the fact that how your actions are perceived is more important than what you say you intended. Pere took off his belt when confronting WhiteMoney. What for? Now it is being said that he pinned WhiteMoney down. You don’t own monopoly of interpretation. Ensure your communication is clear and devoid of grey areas.

4. Strategies, Strategies…? On the other hand, what if Pere just played into WhiteMoney’s hands? As a result of their altercation, WhiteMoney now has more people rooting for him. Could it all just be strategy for him? Are WhiteMoney and Pere just playing the game?

In conclusion, there are so many inferences we can draw from the latest of the action coming from the BBnaija house. And that’s why you shouldn’t miss out on any whether you are watching on DSTV or GOTV! Pay your TV Subscription, Electricity bill and other bills payment you need to do with VTpass so you do not miss out on any of the unfolding drama.

When Messi Will Play For PSG?

If you’re a football enthusiast, then you will have no doubt been caught up in what is definitely the biggest move of the season as Messi transfers to PSG. Arguably, it is even the biggest move of this generation. Every club secretly wishes they were PSG right now. Imagine it. Having Lionel Messi play for your club, run at defences, play defence-splitting passes, ETC.

The news of Messi’s move is one that has rippled across the footballing world. Certainly, PSG this season will be a force no team will want to go up against, considering the fact that they were already a fearsome team before the 6-time Ballon d’or winner joined them.

There are those who believe that he would flop at PSG. In the same vein, others think that the PSG team would lose balance because they have too many attack-minded players. On the other hand, others say nothing can stand in the way of a football god.

Whichever side you stand on, one thing is for certain. We all cannot wait to see Messi hit the field in PSG strips as the jury is out, and this is where VTpass comes in. To stream football matches online, you definitely need data. To watch via DSTV, GOTV or Startimes, you need an active tv subscription. In addition, you need to pay your electricity bills.

VTpass is an online bills payment platform where you can easily make payment for services like Phone Airtime Recharge, Data bundles, Cable TV subscriptions, Electricity bills, Insurance, Education and many more.

As at now, Messi is officially a PSG player. However, due to the fact that he has not had a preseason, he will likely be needing 2-3 weeks to get back into shape. We most probably will see him in September.

In conclusion, one thing is for sure. All eyes will be on PSG this season.

Dorime: The Food Mix-Up

This is the real life account of a food mix-up saga that unfolded in our office and all the dorime that came with it.

It happened on Monday morning. Mike, rushing to avoid getting to the office late, quickly grabbed the black nylon containing his food and took off without checking what was packaged for him. Can somebody play Dorime track 1?

On arriving at the office, Mike proceeded to the cafeteria and dropped his food, so eager to start the day’s work that he still didn’t check to see what had been packaged in the black nylon. DJ please play Dorime track 2

As the day went by, Francis, the office assistant, went out to buy lunch for some colleagues. Mike later goes for lunch, picks up his food, finally checks it, sees one boiled egg. He thought it strange because he knew there was chicken at home but was just too hungry to care. He started eating and was almost done when…

Shayo, his colleague, walks in and starts looking for his food with Francis the office assistant. Mike didn’t pay too much attention until he heard “there was a boiled egg in the food.” The description of the food was so apt that it became obvious that Mike don chop person food o…

Upon investigation, Mike’s real food was found having chicken, fish and snail as protein. What sort of sorcery is this? Mike wondered!

Luckily for Mike, Shayo didn’t make a big deal out of it as it was the close of his shift. That’s how Iyanu, another colleague who was in the right place at the right time, ate free food!

Obi Cubana’s Rise: Lessons From Mum’s Burial

One of the hottest, most talked-about events in the Nigerian social circles right now has been Obi Cubana’s mum’s burial and nothing seems to be enough to kill Obi Cubana’s shine.

From the over 400 cows donated to the host, the $100,000 diamond pendant, 67 private jets that landed Oba to the fleet of over 500 luxury cars, the ceremony was as loud as loud can be. We followed this story closely and here are five lessons we gathered from it.

1. Nigerians can joke about anything.

Like, I’m not even sure we take even ourselves seriously anymore. This has to be the height. Somebody’s mother died and people were everywhere on social media saying “God when?” Seriously guys???

2. Invest in your social capital.

They said connect with people, you say no, you’re an introvert, you like your personal space, etc. Being rich in people is a thing, your network is your net-worth. If the sheer amount of cows donated and money sprayed/flung doesn’t change your mind, what will?

3. Make your own soap.

As usual, the whole saga had people saying “cut soap for us” and the likes. In an interview with bbc pidgin, Obi Cubana was asked to cut soap for Nigerians and he responded “dem no dey cut soap for anybody for dis world.” In other words, people, make your own soap o.

4. Work hard consistently.

Since soap cutting is out of it, working hard consistently is the next best thing out there then. Being excellent at what you do will not be enough, you will have to also be consistent with it. Hustle o, make your girlfriend no leave you go party for oba.

5. Nigerian scammers are creative.

All was well and good after the burial ceremony, until I got a dm from Obi Cubana asking for an airtel recharge to help make money fly in my household. Like, what???

Nigerians don’t joke when it concerns their money. Avoid scammers easily with www.vtpass.com, where you can buy airtime/data, subscribe GOtvDStv, or Startimes, pay electricity bills, buy insurance or pay educational bills at the tap of a button.

How To Survive The Rain

They say it’s summer time but all we are experiencing in these parts is rain, rain, and more rain. The last thing anyone needs right now is for rain to ruin the season, so, here are seven tips on how to survive the rains.

Don’t ever forget to close your windows.

One of the worst things that can happen to anyone in this season is stepping out of the house, then when the rain begins, you remember that you didn’t close your windows. Many have slept in nature-made waterbeds just because they didn’t pay attention to this tip.

Plan your outfits in advance.

This is the season in which your cloths can take up to one week before they get dried up because the rains can help you decide that you haven’t rinsed them enough. You would do well to do your laundry in advance this season.

Never go out without an umbrella.

Even if the sun is shining bright and making you sweat, don’t make the mistake of stepping out without taking an umbrella along with you because in 2 secs, your story can be changed by sudden downpour.

Rubber shoes all the way.

Now is not the time to wear shoes that are made of cotton or other materials that are very prone to water if you don’t want your footwear to turn into a sponge.

Dress for the cold.

As much as possible, ensure you step out with a coat, jacket or sweater in hand. Now is the time to wear thicker fabrics and protect yourself from the cold.

Eat Healthy.

You need to pay more attention to your diet during the rains. Avoid street food as much as possible and also keep away from raw vegetables. Maintain a nutritional diet that includes cooked vegetables, fruits, herbal tea. Now is not the time to fall ill.

Don’t go out if you don’t have to.

VTpass is cutting soap o. Due to the VTpass Increase Your Earning Webinar training we recently deployed, our trade partners are now earning as much as N250,000 extra income monthly. That’s how much you’re missing out on if you missed the training. The Trade Partner webinar was aimed at achieving capacity development for VTpass users, to help you take advantage and not only spend, but also earn on the VTpass platform.

How it went down

This is the maiden edition of the training and it attracted over 6000 of our terminal agents across the country.

More people are going online to look for ways to make more money for themselves instead of being full-time employees. This is one of the issues the webinar sought to address.

It was an amazing interactive atmosphere from start to finish. Attendees teemed with questions that were all attended to. Our team also received some really exciting feedback as we took polls which sparked engagement among attendees.

WHO CAN BE A TRADE PARTNER?

You may have missed the training, but it’s not too late for you to join our team of super agents who are now cashing out monthly to the tune of N250,000, just by “spreading the word.” Anyone can be a Trade Partner, you do not have to be a terminal agent, all you need is an ability to have downlines and they make the money for you while you concentrate on other pursuits. Learn all about Trade Partners here.

Bitcoin: Navigating The Dip

A person or group of people operating under the name Satoshi Nakamoto launched Bitcoin in 2009. A worldwide army of enthusiasts swiftly adopted the cryptocurrency. It currently has user dashboards looking like the silhouette challenge however.

HOW BITCOIN WORKS

Bitcoin is a digital currency which has no ties to any bank or government. Bitcoins are basically lines of computer code that are digitally signed each time they are transferred from one owner to the next.

Users create the coins, “mining” them by lending computing power to verify other users’ transactions. For that, they receive Bitcoins in exchange. The coins however have monetary value. They can be bought and sold on exchanges with U.S. dollars and other currencies.

Since coming to light, cryptocurrency has been widely hailed as everybody’s “inroad” to financial independence. Some businesses receive Bitcoin for payment and a number of financial institutions allow it in their clients’ portfolios. Overall mainstream acceptance is still quite limited though.

Leading cryptos Bitcoin and Ethereum have endured a turbulent time over the past week. Share prices have dropped by 37.10% and 42.23% respectively. The market crash follows a decision by Tesla to no longer accept Bitcoin as payment for its vehicles, as announced by the car company’s CEO Elon Musk.

More recently also, China banned financial institutions and payment companies from providing services related to cryptocurrency transactions and warned investors against speculative cryptocurrency trading.

WHAT TO DO?

  1. Don’t Panic. The most important thing you need to have in order to make the decision is your head. Whether you are going to buy the dip, see the dip out or get out while you can, use your head. We are not telling you to not be afraid of losing your money. But, be sure you’re not just making an emotional decision.
  2. Assess and Evaluate. From a place of calm, make research, keep abreast of news and developments regarding cryptocurrency. It’s not the first time in recent times that the market is being hit. Just in February, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) banned Nigerian banks from dealing in all forms of cryptocurrencies, then Tesla, now China, and there have been conversations surrounding India.
  3. Make a Decision. Assess the situation and what it means for the future. As a result, you will be making an informed decision. This provides an action plan that reflects your current view on the potential risks and opportunities of cryptocurrencies.

The plunge in cryptocurrency markets may have you unsettled. But remember, this is not the first time the market is dipping.
