musicians and comedians are really cool, but so are Humanitarians!
I am listening to “Meant to be” by Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia, it’s 1:33am and I should be reading like I planned to but things changed and I kind of feel sleepy. I haven’t posted in a really long time one reason being I had exams and the other being I kind of didn’t know what to post about. But something has been happening lately and I’ll like to share it with you I really hope I am able to convince you to help do something about it after reading this.
I am probably the only one feeling this way, I have noticed the little or no attention given to young women and men who have decided not to venture into music or modelling or art or comedy but have decided to put their energy into volunteering and doing humanitarian works. I have particularly noticed on social media the little feedbacks they get and I want to believe it’s a reflection of what is happening outside social media. I have laughed so much from watching funny videos on instagram and my spirit has been lifted times without number from listening to some people sing and I want to believe this happened because these people recognized their talents and were recognized and supported. But I keep asking myself why this doesn’t get to people who are planning every morning and night how to make their society better in the humanitarian way.
Yes, the change these people are making is way more important than people looking and supporting but we need more people seeing these things to encourage many more people into doing better things in that aspect in the future.
Please Queen, I urge you to take time to support these people even If you can’t with resources just yet, cheer them on, give them hope and faith, you matter and things can’t get better without your support. Follow them and comment on their pages, If a musician or comedian can have 500k followers a humanitarian should be able to have same with people joining in to make things better in our country . All we need to do is to rise to make little changes, little things make big things.
These are some of my favourite humanitarian pages on instagram, I’ll share more with time.

- The average Nigerian Female.
I’m proud to say she’s a graduate from my school, she’s a blogger and humanitarian, this page is dedicated to showcasing the lives of Nigerian women.
- Female Empowerment West Africa
This a west African organization with representatives from different parts of West Africa. And “the average Nigerian Female” owner is the Nigerian representative and it’s dedicated to fighting female genital mutilation and gender based violence.
- Humans of Akwa-Ibom
I love this page so much, the fact that someone just decides to tell the stories of average Nigerians with a picture everywhere he goes is really inspiring and gives me goosebumps. It is really awesome please follow and support these people.
In summary, as we are clapping hands and cheering on upcoming artists and comedians let’s do same for upcoming volunteers and humanitarians.
A candle looses nothing by lightning another candle, we need to help each other achieve great things in our generation and we don’t loose anything from doing that, we just gain so much more.
