In our recent episode inspired by Taiye Selasi’s (@taiye.entirely) Ghana Must Go, we talk about compromise vs sacrifice in marriage. Fola, one of the main characters, said to her husband when they were newly wed that “one dream is enough for both of us” which basically led to her forfeiting her dream of becoming a lawyer for him to become a surgeon. ———
Should such sacrifices in marriage be a thing? Or is it dependent on the person? With that being said, if things go south, wouldn’t it always lead to resentment?

FILM SCREENING: ‘THE WORKERS CUP’
September 28, 2018
19:00 Prompt
THIS FRIDAY: In 2022, Qatar will host the biggest sporting event in the world, the FIFA World Cup. But right now, far away from the bright lights, star athletes and adoring fans, the tournament is being built on the backs of 1.6 million migrant workers. Inside the labor camps of Qatar, African and Asian migrant workers are building the facilities of the 2022 World Cup. “The Workers Cup” is a feature-length documentary giving a voice to the men who are laboring to build sport’s grandest stage. They compete in a football tournament of their own: The Workers Cup. Don’t miss it - especially since two of the men featured in the film, Kenneth Amissah and Samuel Agoe, will be sharing their stories live with us post screening. THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Here are some white books. I’ve read the top and bottom ones but the others are tbr. Shirley Jackson is the one I want to get to most as I’ve only heard such great things about this writer.

Has anyone read Big Brother? I’m not sure I’ve seen it much on here. Oh, feel free to share your white books too if you fancy.

(2/4)

Immediately, I heard myself saying, without any command from Heaven, "It's a Law; people making GREAT PROFIT from 'killing' Ministers shall suffer GREAT LOSS! Mark this date — Wednesday, September 19." God then spoke, "That's Me talking." I was coming from the volume of books written of me... countless conversation between God and I on #FireOfInvention. [Some I'll never write or say till I get to Heaven].
.
Just today, Thursday September 20, 2018, I got a report from a "certain" Christian minister about how God, THE GREAT HELPER, THE GREAT DELIVERER rescued him from assassination.

He told me, "I always believe your word, Sir." Praise God! All thanks to JESUS.

From the circulated report and his trusted account, a serving Governor from the North Central Geo-Political Zone called this fellow for a meet only to then offer him bales of dollars in starched #GhanaMustGo bag with a caveat to pray for him and support his second term ambition as a clergy. But, the man of God (an apostle) upon knowing God's mind told the Governor that he won't win for second term, as such should keep his dollars. In frustration, the Governor went on slandering and blackmailing him like a "serpent" calling him a fake prophet.
.
Still not having enough of his Machiavellian vendetta, this same "child of the devil" SENT assassins to assassinate this minister. What?! And that was how God stepped in. That was how God stepped in to HELP and DELIVER this helpless beloved.

In one day... Say: 'One day.'
.
Yesterday — Wednesday morning September 19 (DAY 7-Of-15), after that my declaration, the assassins and their creed ended in shame and disgrace.
.
Two of the assassins were arrested. One drowned in the river (in Calabar, Cross River). The fourth person ran mad. In total, four. All in one day!

Same September 19; the D-DAY of their mission.
.
As I speak to you right now, that son of the devil... the killer is now begging authorities and intermediaries to call a truce between him and the Christian minister begging for his safety.
.
Do you beg "the dead"? Please, don't be ignorant.

#BookReview
#GhanaMustGo by #TaiyeSelasi
Kweku Sai is a respected Ghanaian surgeon living in the United States with his Nigerian wife, Folasadé and their four children; Olu, the twins Taiwo and Kehinde, and Sadie. A year after a wrongful dismissal hidden from his family, he drives off and abandons his family. Unable to cope with the four kids on her own, Folasadé sends the twins to her half-brother in Nigeria where their experience leaves them bruised. The family ends up scattered around the world, each one of his children brilliant and successful yet carrying their wounds in their own different ways. All of them have been altered by the abandonment of Kweku, his absence and the broken bonds among them.

The death of their father brings them together after a period of frail contact. They reunite with their mother in Ghana where the awkwardness and tension must reach a point of breaking. After years of floating about without a grounding force, can this reunion stitch the wounds and sew back the pieces of the Sai family?

A lot of tears are shed in this book. Selasi penetrates the effects that immigration has on families – the separations and the inability to firmly place one’s roots in a particular place. Our family experiences and the love ties we break and refasten shape us in different ways and play a role in how we absorb love from the world and how we pour it out to others. Although handsomely written, it is easy to lose your way along the way as she constantly shifts the camera to different scenes and characters, in some parts to different periods. To some it could be an undesirable method but to others like myself, it is indeed an impressive style of writing that toys with the plot structure and development of characters.
