TALK WITH OGEFASH (T.W.O) EP 4:  “ARE YOU ALONE? NO YOU ARE NOT!” “AM I ALONE? I AM NOT!”

TALK WITH OGEFASH (T.W.O) EP 4: “ARE YOU ALONE? NO YOU ARE NOT!” “AM I ALONE? I AM NOT!”

IG @ogefashblog.

“You are

not alone” “You are not alone” You are not alone” were the four words a female facilitator said repeatedly as I went for a job seminar with the high hopes of returning back home with an employment letter. Not my fault though, their campaign for people to show up at the seminar, made it look so.

 

Who could blame me for having such high hopes about the seminar; after graduation from the University, I searched for jobs tirelessly for years; but all effort to find one was futile. There was no money; struggling became a friend of mine. I felt so lonely; I felt so disfavored; it was to me like help was far from me. To me, it was like God abandoned me.

 

And here was I at a job seminar with the female facilitator reiterating the four words “You are not alone”

“God never leaves you alone; regardless the challenges, there would always be someone out there to help you.”

I really don’t know why people who have thousands of reasons to stay alive decide to kill themselves for one reason- Ogefash

I have over time pondered on this, and now, I have come to the realization that I am actually not alone. Do you often think you are alone too and there’s no helper around you?

Well you need to chew over this, as in ponder about it well.

Madu (People), biko (please) life is worth living for. You need to fight that Grave call regardless challenges- Ogefash- https://ogefash.reviews/2017/10/29/the-grave-call-suicide-not-an-option-2/

Look around you, you may not be where you are but you are surviving even though it seems like a cliché. The economy is bad, “Oh I am cashless in a cashless society, there is never money on me, no money in my account” but somehow when you need money urgently, it comes your way. You may not be eating what you desire or the three squares of meal, but there is always food on your table.

Think about that interview you were preparing to go for without having any cash, but somehow, someone showed up and gave you transportation fare for the interview. You are not wearing Gucci, D&G, but somehow you have got clothes on you. You can’t afford a new pair of shoes, but somehow the old ones still fit your beautiful legs and are not chewed up.

Follower: Hi Ogefash, I always feel lonely; am I alone?

Think about it!

There would always be some help sent your way whether through friends, families, colleagues, and startlingly, even your enemies. How can enemies help you may ask? At times your enemies, who are working against you, end up working things in your favour.

This applies to me also; I have been a full time blogger for years with no revenue coming in, not from the blog or anyone. But then, I have been blogging. That help just suddenly comes my way for “data” to blog and for transport fare to drop proposals at companies. When I am deterred, I always remember those four words again “You are not alone!”

Ogefash's Styl

She is an educationist. With her love for children, she took up the task of supervising and taking care of children at the After School Department of Heritage School before her resignation.

She is a seasoned writer and very passionate about her work. Interestingly, her blog is the first in Nigeria to start reviewing Nigerian and foreign movies and also write the movies' plots scene by scene. Ogefash blog is also the first to translate songs, interprete and give a full detailed analysis about music and artistes in Nigeria, Africa and America before other blogs started emulating her style. While other blogs provided just music lyrics alone, we took it higher by not only providing lyrics, but translating, interpreting and analyzing as well. It is also the first blog to give detailed analysis of adverts. Interestingly, Ogefash blog also known as Ogefash Photo Blog is the first blog all over the world to blog with lots of interesting pictures to support all articles. Ogefash says "I don't keep male friends because they always say "sex" is part of friendship. I don't keep female friends because they are always bitchy. I only keep people I can call more than a friend!" Ogefash has an affinity for TV reality shows. In 2018, she represented Nigeria in the PanAfrican TV reality game show "The Maltavator Challenge" powered by Nigeria's number one malt drink packed full of energy giving vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6;Malta Guinness. The show brought together four African countries Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia and Coted'ivoire who competed for the grand prize of 20,000 dollars. Undaunted by any task in her field, Ogefash is highly energetic and creative. She is a rare gem and a gift to this generation.
