On Becoming by Toke Makinwa

The moment I found out about On Becoming, I knew I had to read it. I guess by its true definition, I am a fan of Toke. Not one of those off the wall crazy fans but I admire her and her career. I’ve watched her videos on YouTube and follow her on Snapchat and she seems to be an amazing person who is always happy, living in light and grounded in faith. To read about what she has endured in her life and how she was able to overcome it was interesting.

NYSC Essentials

This post is beneficial to anyone going to camp.

The market may be cheaper alternative.

Here are the essential items that you’ll need for camp:
