Obiageli is a book that narates the story of a girl that has seen it all (the good, the bad and the ugly). She was unfortunate when it comes to experiencing the seamless and sweet love between mother and daughter.

What web did she got into? How did she get back on her feet? Check out the book to know how she survived it all.
Speaking of Truth; it's no one's fault we were colonized and inflicted with inferiority complex and if I must add a fact by saying; we can not be entirely free from foreign dominance but if we'd recover from our lost conciousness, open our minds to the extential realm of life, appreciating our Afrikaan ethics and stop being the shadows of our own Aesthetics. Only then shall we be great again. This can't be done by just being spiritual there's more to it, haven't said My people love spirituality alot, we're highly spiritual in Nature. But as you keep seeking spirituality, never place spirituality over logical reasoning, it makes you ignorance and if I must add,vapid. For it's good to be spiritual, in fact it adds to our purpose in life but it's as well very essential we embrace our history, such histories that tells us about who we are, how we use to be before we got colonized, our mistakes and what we must learn from them. For all these are vital in birthing the Kind of Afrikka we want again. The dream of every Afrikaan child. Being pro Black have always been mistaken as hatred on other races. Until you understand how we have been destroyed & damaged via white supremacy, imperialism & neo colonialism. We will continue chasing shadow while going backwards, We have to realize this hard fact and wake up.

The peculiar thing with the truth is that we don’t know the truth till we seek it. everyone claims to know the truth, but none knows if the truth is true. In a world, full of dishonest people, one doesn’t know who/what to believe anymore, for the heart of man is wicked. It is wise to question, what is the truth? It’s in doubt, that the dubious is known. Very important, what is the truth? Anything can be the truth, just as anyone can say the truth; but how true is that truth? When our hearts lied, our consciences failed; not because our minds failed, but because our hypocritical nature prevailed. The truth is always bitter to the bitter heart, the heart that has no joy and empathy for mankind. People lie to protect themselves, when the truth is the only thing that can truly save them. True truths expose the truths, lies and secrets the world hides in her heart. The truths that Religion, Government, Education, and Organizations aren’t telling the people. It further reveals the Pretenses and hypocrisies people clothe themselves with, for the evil on earth is vast and plenty. The oration also orates the importance of truth in the life of man, detailing uncensored analysis of the common activities of man and its consequences.
