Ending World Hunger

Imagine this caption: β€˜World hunger to end by the year 2030’.

Looking at the present state of things, this forecast may seem very far fetched. Although, according to the United Nations, the number of people in the world suffering from hunger has dropped to 795 million since 1990 and there are 216 million fewer people suffering from hunger today than there were 26 years ago; this is not exactly sufficient enough to rest our oars given the billions of people on earth. World hunger is still a concerning topic.

How do we eliminate world hunger by 2030? These are my effective suggestions.
Firstly, Be an advocate. Have a voice in the fight against global hunger. Your voice can make a difference. Show your support on social media and get others engaged.

Secondly, practice sustainable urban farming. Almost one-quarter of malnourished people live in urban areas. Urban farming empowers families and gives them control over their own food source.

Thirdly, Improve access to education.
Education is the best weapon against poverty and hunger. It is especially powerful in underdeveloped countries. Education means better opportunities and improved access to income and food.

In addition, there should be more focus on empowering women. Studies have shown that there is a direct correlation with hunger and gender inequality. Empowering women to gain access to food, be providers, and lead their families has had a major impact on food access and ability to change financial situations.

My final but not the least effective suggestion is birth control education. High birth rates pose a problem when trying to solve hunger. Many people are not educated on reproduction or do not have access to contraceptives. Gaining access to contraceptives allows for family planning and economic freedom.

To conclude, eradicating world hunger is not a farfetched dream. The solution is embedded in community driven development and sustainability as opposed to palliative measures.We can work towards that reality one solution at a time.

I wish i was tryna play a game

Then i’d pretend i don’t know your name

Or the other day – not to take the blame

I wish i was in it for the gain…Then i’d try to hide my pain

Cos…Whatever pays..(right)..just tryna get laid (right)… tryna get hitched. Nahh…

God’s got this on Home screen …

Its a K.O…Corrine mink. I could sink in that O …

Ohh ….I’m a terrible liar ….

Can’t lie … i dont want more

More time, more love, more smiles

I’m….Just after an encore

Of every moment with you

I loved that picture

My life in 4D starring you

It’s that high…don’t be looking down

Lately your mind’s got a new site

Tryna catch the next flight

And i dont wanna look …

Afraid i might see something’s thats not quite right

– With me…and how i love u so

I’ll get tired of saying that

Like you don’t already know

I know you know that i dont act

You know i said i dont sell junk

Truth is…that’s the truth..no punks

🎡Saving all my love for…🎢🎢…yea.

The whole ice plus the tip …i don’t play nice

It’s been one hell of a wait…

I’m a sinner but at least i’m not late

So you know its RSVP

You got the OTP

This shit is deeper than love

So i know its from above

I wish i could be perfect…act with grace

Not show my lace…My crown hanging…perfect! πŸ˜‰

Hahaha….You’d see me fall at the door

I should run away…no spotlight…we don’t do runways

I’m just tryna be good even when i can’t find the mood

Through my lens you’ll forever be the sun

Niggas know i got my door on lock

You got the keys if you just say please

Why are you so cold …i can tell from your eyes

They have lost their shine…

It’s not the same when they see me

You’re fading away …i’m tryna sway …make it to bay but

It’s killing me …how do i let go ………

Just sail with the wind…to where tho?

Don’t know how to make you stay

I feel forgettable …even replaceable

Waiting for the words that’ll never come

Just strike the match already

Make an inferno outta this little light

Of mine …

Or a dagger to the heart..

You know originals don’t die!

“Go…don’t go…wait…okay leave..LEAVE

Sigh…Getting tired of playing pharoah

Lemme….

Feel the pain of a life without you

Feel it…feel it…feel once and for all..

Take my last breath and walk out the door

Pain X 3….You are worth my pain…

If killing me is healing me …so be it

Maybe when i die…i’ll be born again

And And i won’t even remember your name

The Chronicles of Segun and Toonday ( A Tetralogy)

[So I recently came up with two characters ‘segun and toonday’ for a single plot. However, they started to grow on me and I ended up adopting these two for 4 short skit scripts. They are my absolute favourite and I hope you enjoy getting lost in their world as much as I did.☺

Some of the dialogue is written in Nigerian pidgin English]

1. The Wedding Crashers

Scene: Segun’s House

Toonday: ah ah…Whats up Segun…na you be dis?…i bin dey think say u don die reach heaven tey tey

Segun: oya Toonday, I’m ready let’s go.

Scene 2: The wedding party reception

Usher: Who are you here for. The bride or the groom?

Toonday: The bride

Segun:😐 The groom

Usher: πŸ˜•…Alright if you would follow me please.

(Usher sits Toonday at the back while Segun was placed in the front)

Segun: πŸ˜ƒπŸ€€πŸ€€ I can already scent the jollof…ah…God bless Toonday…my fortune is starting to turn…

(A lady starts to share food. She takes the Food right past Segun and starts to share from the back. Unfortunately the Food doesn’t get to the front)

Segun:😯 Ah ah..ees that how you use to do…everybody knows they start to share food from the front…what ushering school did this one attendπŸ˜’

Segun: Excuse me…excuse me…psst…

(Usher ignores Segun )

Segun: 😟☹….issokay…you will come back 😧☻

After about 10 mins…

Segun:pschew, Ah…ok..Ees like they are bringing another round o! When they did not tie my legs to the front seat, lemme shift back a little…

Segun: πŸ˜ƒAh ope o!… it’s my turn at last!πŸ˜„πŸ˜…

(The lady approaches Segun and signals to him to pick what’s in the bowl. Glad, with a sense of joy, Segun stretches his hand to pick what was in the bowl)

Baby Jowo

Dakun wa se temi

Iwo nikan ni mo fe e

I no look Uche face o

Him:

See this picture

Wey you feature

It’s the future

We can risk Joor

It’s Chemistry

We get history

It’s no mystery

Come and save me

From my misery

Mo ti lo ti

U. T. O.T

I give you my heart

You can put it in the cart

You can be in my FAM

You don’t need to spend a dime

E just be like … who I am

But this your jam got me like

….

Damn!

Baby Jowo

Dakun wa se temi

Iwo nikan ni mo fe e

I no look Uche face o

Deepin’

These are my confessions

Random thoughts

I need to let off

But…

First you need to get

This Is no quartet

On this for a while

Freestyle lifestyle!

Word! on press

There’s more or less

I’ll write whatever

Not tryna impress

I need access

They say He listens

He grants dem wishes

He blesses

I need a blessing

Tired of the stressin

They got me whipped

Dressed In love to equip

This mind with a whip

The world knows me not,

And out here It’s hot

The burden’s a lot

I’m just tryna let It off

Set It off .. get It off

We one and the same

Our hand’s tied In the game

Got f**d on, bound by a cross

Still pass the message across

Hold em wires or they crossed

It’s the tired that got me retired

The player’s game’s on fire

The played just got fired

I’m tired of these burns

I’m tired of the guns

You stick to my mouth

It don’t amount

Time don’t count

Let’s get to it

You’re not quite legit

Let’s give the fifth

Then clear this rift

I’m just like him

The man In the ream

Gives but don’t get

Kicked to the dirt

It’s just an appointment

Why you disappointed

I was on for a minute

Got me thinking you knew It

I’m trying to make this end

Issa dead maze in the end

Blow me where I stand

Then maybe you’ll understand

The painting instead

Of the painter who painted

It Just got better

Not saying what you wanna hear

Cos This white that we both wear

Makes us act like we don’t care

……….. …… …….

I should stop here

Cos this game don’t stop

Till we reach our stop

Let’s just run It from the top tho

This should be my…err .. confession

Excuse my digression

One second left In session

Now I’m under pressure

Words hang I’m not sure

You don’t know my face

Or the monsters I face

But May be one day

The grounds I lay

Will have a say

I got this sown

And tho my mind’s blown

I got you In my zone

I’ll never be alone

Birthversary

This One Is for my baby sis πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘­

I remember the time

It was springtime

And you were five

Your smile was life

And you knew It

Always lit

And the lens,

It was love on sight

And you loved the lights

You were 5 and so bright

Twenty one years now

And I’m still dazed at how

You got here and now

I know you grown

You can walk on your own

But you still ask a dozen questions

And I got my objections

So we had our fights

You tried to prove your rights

I had to be that tight

So you know your left from right

The world Is not nice

So you gotta be double nice

And twice as sharp

Or you pay the price

You Just gotta know

So even when I go

You are good to go

Can’t wait to see you fly

And my love, It’s on stand by

Don’t even think twice

It’s Just a slice

I will give you the world

If I had It

But first I’ll teach you

How to get It.

This day on a blue day

You came Into my world

I’m grateful for the time

I get to spend with you

Live life while we have It

Happy Birthday Baby Sis πŸ˜—πŸ˜™πŸ˜šπŸŽ‚πŸ°πŸ©πŸ­πŸ§πŸ¦πŸ¨β˜•
