THE MAN IN THE BROKEN MIRROR: Episode 3

Check 3

Kate is a first-class prostitute. For her, life is a choice. What comes to us is based on the choices we make daily. She believes that the devil's hand is behind some certain events but then, only if you allow it. Prostitution for Kate is purely business. Her philosophy is based on these words "as long as you don't hurt, harm anyone or take what belongs to anyone without permission, then how the money comes is not important. Over the years she has been able to build a reputation with her business. she has been able to define herself and carved out a niche for herself.

Going into prostitution was not her dream. No one will wake up and think of prostitution as a career. Kate has been able to help her immediate family through this job. Two of her siblings are studying in Ghana universities and the last girl is sitting for her SSCE. She hasn't done badly in her five years of active prostitution. Her client base has been built on trust and boundaries. She wrote down some aims and objectives five years ago before she chose this line of business. She even went to Corporate Affairs Commission and registered as a limited liability company; Kays pleasure & entertainment Nigeria Ltd. The choice of business name originated from her grand vision of providing hospitality and care to travelers and tourist.


Driving from Ajaa where her rented 3-bedroom duplex is located she recollects her adventure as a prostitute. The sun was down and traffic was thick. She took the sun-glass off her face and adjusted her hat. It was a Monday evening and she likes to attend Bible Study at a Deeper Life District located inside Shoprite compound at Lekki. Kate believes that God has been her source of inspiration and she tells younger prostitutes to look up to God. One of the days that Biola met her at a lobby at the National Theatre Lagos, Kate carefully gave her the Ten Commandments;

(1) Always pray to God for good, rich and kind customers
(2) Never miss a Sunday Service and if possible attend weekly activities
(3) Pay your tithes, give free will offerings, sow seeds and pay your first fruits
(4) Help the poor and needy around you and love, love, love everyone!
(5) Don't envy your colleague and don't fight for her customer. Be content
(6) Never fall in love with your client
(7) Don't steal from your client nor cheat your client.
(8) Try to avoid married client if you can. Better still avoid knowing a client's background
(9) Define your client-base and stick to it.
(10) Take risk when needful and run away from monies that are traps.

These commandments are the guiding principles behind Kate's success as a prostitute. She had just finished NYSC seven years ago when her late Dad's best friend tried to sleep with her in order to secure a job for her in a shipping company. It was a painful experience. She had sworn while serving as a sister coordinator in one of the campus fellowships while in the university never to sleep with a man that is not her husband for job. Two years after NYSC and still no job, Kate became hopeless. She was a good student and with 2.1 in Economist she wondered why it is difficult for Economic graduates to get job in Nigeria. By the way, which positions will an Economist fit well in these private companies? Have you ever wondered where all the Economics graduates in Nigeria are and what they doing presently? All the offers that came her way where tied down to sex before appointment letter. On 25th December 2007 she made a decision not to give in to the pressure of sex but rather sell sex to people who will pay for it. The pressure was much and with her mum on the sick bed with stroke, it was very difficult to cope.


It's seven years now and all these are history. She has been able to open a dance club and she has trained a fleet of prostitute with her philosophy and ideas. She conducts HIV screening for all her girls on monthly basis and she has been able to ship some of them to UK for international business. kays pleasure and entertainment has become a major name in the show biz industry hosting a lot of fashion fares and exhibition. For Kate, the journey so far has been God and so she decided to be committed to church activities. It was in the prayer band that she met Brother Jimmy Adebowale aka Bro Jim Jim.

HOW THEY ALMOST WASTED MY LIFE IN LAGOS

This thing called life. On this edition of Everyday People I am talking about the story of a young life that would have been carelessly truncated. But God saved his Unique Life. Yes! This Life is Unique! It is Unique because of you. There is no other you. No where in this whole life. Yes Uniqueness. That’s what I am talking about? What makes a life unique is what the individual is. What attracts people or a market to you is that niche that distinguishes you from others. What is your unique selling point (USP)? There must be something you should be known for. I don’t know what it is but you have to think about it and create that uniqueness for yourself. What are you ready to be known for? What did Jesus die for? What did the apostles of old die for? What did Martin Luther die for? What did Ghandi die for? What did Idahosa die for? What is Adeboye living for? What does Oyedepo exist for? What is Kumuyi preaching for? The list is endless. What is Dr. Omalu sacrificing for

FALLEN

Our Land was pure. The grass was green. Our Water was clean. The leaves could cure. We drank from the stream With leaves bridged to the rock as cups. As we laved our body under the heavy drops, Our body needed no cream. We were at peace The Palm wine tasted like honey. The village square was our group chat. Words were strong and laughter from the heart. Love was not bought with money. Our Farms yielded with interest. We had enough to eat and ship. Our eyes are closed when we sleep. We worked, worked and had our rest. We were not at war Our Merchants traveled South, West and North. With products of trade for exchange of coins. Women were married not just for groins. Deals were made, no one was fought. Then came the experts with hats and guns. They took our lands and made us Roomers. They deceived our neighbors and made us brothers. Our rights were taken and we became their puns. We were just neighbours They joined No

WHEN WAHALA JAM GBESE! Final Episode!

My People for this Community! How una dey? Last week we started a story on Everyday People and we promised to finish the story this week.  In continuation of the story, below are the extracts from episode one: “I am saying WHEN WAHALA JAM GBESE NA PALAVA E GO GET! The problem became so much that even the neighbors became so uncomfortable with the whole arrangement. This trouble is worst anytime the Man and his wife made love in the night. Our aunty R will always pick a quarrel with the wife of the house. The most painful part is that this man will just disappear leaving the two women to dig it out with themselves. If you were in the shoes of this wife what would you do? Will you allow aunty R to squat with your family in the first instance? Will you ask your husband to drive his sister away? Will you fight your sister-in-law out of the house? Will you start a prayer program for aunty R? Will, you just allow everything to pass and hope for #BetterDaysAhead?”
