Lilian Gold Inspires Fashion in Africa with her Emerald Ankara Pieces brand

Lilian Gold is the CEO of one of Nigeria's leading fashion accessories line, Emerald Ankara Pieces which she started in March 2013.

Speaking to JCBlog, Lilian explained that "In January 2013, I prayed and asked God for a business idea to start. By February, a friend walked up to me and said 'why don't you go into Ankara Accessories?' I laughed. But that night the thought couldn't let me sleep and I was sure God had answered me. So in March 2013, I got trained and started Emerald Ankara Pieces in that same month".

With her brand idea, Emerald has become a household fashion accessory brand having graced platforms like WedExpo, Designers Market Place, House on the Rock fashion fairs and more and have also trained young people in different parts of Nigeria on this business.

As the Nigerian enterprise sector is burgeoning, we are glad to know Lilian and hopeful that there's more breakthroughs for her brand.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
