How Christianity saved Africa and the world

First of all, I am a Christian now, yea I know about our own traditional African religion, and of course, I am an African we had our own religion before the white men sailed from Europe and brought us Christianity and we all know the history of Christianity and we know about the old testament and I am saying this as a Christian because this is what I believe in now 


I strongly believe Christianity saved the world and Africa, trust me I know the white men that brought us Christianity also brought chains that took us to Europe and S/America I know, but the religion still saved us


With this Internet age, we are beginning to question a lot of things in Christianity and many of you that follow the news won't miss the drama between Matthias and pastors in Nigeria, I watched him destroy the Bible because he confirmed that the pastors in Nigeria could not heal the sick people that he brought, lol


But when I look at the world especially the black man I believe Christianity saved us because I don't know what would have happened, remember how Mary Slessor saved the twins, many things like that and a black man would want to hurt you and he would think of God first and be like "I won't hurt you because of God", he does not mean he won't hurt you because of our African gods he means Jesus, so Christianity really softened the heart of the people.


I was watching something online about a country in Asia that used to behead their enemies and because of Christianity, they stopped.


But I just wonder why Christianity is not making them do the right thing it's simple religion is a personal thing and money is a universal thing 


Look man I don't Carry religion on my head but I know there is a supreme being and I believe that


    Mary Mitchell Slessor


Mary Mitchell Slessor (2 December 1848 – 13 January 1915) was a Scottish Presbyterian missionary to Nigeria. Once in Nigeria, Slessor learned Efik, one of the numerous local languages, then began teaching. Because of her understanding of the native language and her bold personality, Slessor gained the trust and acceptance of the locals and was able to spread Christianity while promoting women's rights and protecting native children. She is most famous for having stopped the common practice of infanticide of twins in Okoyong, an area of Cross River State, Nigeria.

We have 2 major ride-sharing apps in Brazil

In Brazil you might not really need a car but if you live in a very big city like Brasilia you would definitely need a car or if you are into the delivery business like me you would surely need a car but the transportation system in Brazil is awesome and if you decide not to buy a car you would be fine for sure


We have 2 major ride-sharing apps in Brazil they are uber and the Brazilian version called 99


Uber is known worldwide and it is fast but my problem with uber is that they cancel a lot and they make you pay, heck I lost a lot of money to uber and their crazy drivers they waste your time and they cancel and still make you pay, I had to remove the damn app


99 this is awesome I have not had any issue since I have been using this app, the ride could take 5-7mins but the driver would always come and they don't do anyhow like uber and their customer care service is top-notch and if you are overcharged by a driver they would refund you, so it is 99 for me, so you can download 99 when you are in Brazil and enjoy your ride

Why do we have wicked leaders in Africa

Most times I just sit down and think about Africa and about how wicked the so-called people that govern us are, governance is not rocket science, and the people they are let me say ruling is their people and not foreigners, I mean their people the same people that voted for them the same people that gave them that power and I begin to ask myself why do they get there and turn to the devil?


Look at other countries in the western world they take care of their people and especially their elderly and I would always use Brazil as an example they take care of their people and the elderly


They give their people free education and free health care and this is why the average Brazilian is not frustrated and they help their people in many ways even with free food


In Africa People struggle to pay for school fees in private schools trust me your best private school can't beat a good public school in Brazil and even your private university can't beat a public Brazilian university and it is free and the funniest part those so-called leaders attended free public schools


The funniest part is that we have the money in Africa, look at Nigeria for example and Congo they are rich but their people are still suffering


Is it that the black man is just wicked to his own people? I don't just get it What do you think guys?

It is very easy to raise a family in Brazil

Family is the most important thing in life and one thing that they love the most In the whole of South America is family (familia) so this is why I wanted to come down here because they love family and in Brazil they don't joke with the mother of the house and the kids


Bringing your family to Brazil would be the best decision that you would ever make because they would love it, we don't have segregation in Brazil all kids are the same, black, white, brown, Indian we are all Brazilians


And the best part is that you won't worry or stress much because education is free and health care is free, imagine taking that school fees burden off your head, lol and here is  the best part they would give your kids food at school and the government also gives reading materials and you buy some, lol, is brazil not wonderful, what are you waiting for bring your family down and give your kids an awesome future and kids love youtube Internet is cheap and they can watch youtube all day. lets go

Few reasons Why I would never leave Brazil

In Brazil if you come across some foreigners from Haiti, Asia, and Africa it is normal for you to hear them whine and complain about brazil many want to go to the USA because the USA is close to brazil and you begin to wonder if they pick money on the floor in the USA, LOL and I always tell them that I am not leaving Brazil and they are always surprised and they think I am joking, they keep on disturbing me lets go to America, lol I have traveled and I have seen things, look Brazil is the best country ever, they might not be as rich as the USA but brazil is a great country and there are many reasons why I won't be leaving Brazil but to mention a few.


It is simple I feel at home in Brazil as a black man we have 15m, black people here and 97m identify as black, the people are friendly, racism is low, no racial profiling at least I am not judged by my Nigerian name, I have equal rights according to the Brazilian constitution, good business environment, so what else am I looking for up and down, I would leave Brazil if I am a greedy man, guess what I am not greedy, the country has done what my home country has never done for me since I was born there, so I am loyal and patriotic to brazil and I am not leaving.


I am even too old to relocate again, I am done relocating, I just can't go through the stress of starting all over again, what is in the USA that is not in Brazil?do you even have free health care in the USA like we do in brazil, LOL So these are the reasons why I would never leave Brazil, good or bad I remain here.

How to get Google AdSense Approval in 24-48 hours

It is a good feeling when you get that email from Google telling you that you can start making money from your site, it feels so good because writing is not easy at all, so this is how I got my AdSense approved in 24-48hours


Getting your AdSense approved in 24-48 hours is not hard and the reason why most people think that it is hard is that they focus on making money and their mind is always on the money that they would be getting from AdSense, lol, I know we all love money but the goal should be for you to do what you love and as you know my blog is a travel blog about brazil and I love Brazil and I am passionate about brazil so I just keep on writing and I never get tired and in fact, I have a lot of articles in my draft that I have not even posted yet.


I use to see a lot of posts of people complaining about AdSense and how AdSense is not approving their site and I mostly find out that people are more focused on getting money from Adsense instead of putting In work To make it all easy at the end and In this article, I would be telling you how to put in work and get the good news from AdSense in the end.


The first thing you need to understand is that you need a lot of patience and if you are someone without patience AdSense might not be for you because it takes time, I waited for so long because I did not want to be rejected by AdSense


Secondly  is that you need to allow your site to be at least 6months old, yes 6months


You need to buy a domain, you can buy any cheap domain


Your site has to be indexed on google and bing


Your site needs to have over 10k views


You need to write a lot of unique articles yourself and don't copy and past


You need to write a lot of articles because I got AdSense approval with a lot of articles, I had over 300 articles before I applied a few days ago and I got approved in 48hours


So those points above are the main points and what you need to get approved in 24-48 hours


Many of you already know the steps but here is what I did


You have to verify your identity and enter your payment details and you also have to verify your phone number


I connected my AdSense to my site by placing the code on my site


I use a  free theme


I chose auto ads because I don't have time to stress myself


So these are the main steps to apply once and get it, instead of applying multiple times


That was all I did and after 48 hours I got an email telling me that my site is ready to show ads and like I said all you need is patience, write about what you love and let money not be at the forefront of what you are doing and in the end you would be happy because all your work and patience would not be in vain, so follow those steps and you would get approved in 24-48 hours, Finally please support me by subscribing to my youtube channel below, Thank you and Boa Sorte(Good Luck)

Life is truly short always cherish your loved ones

I woke up a few days ago checked my WhatsApp and I saw a shocking message and at first, I thought it was a joke and I thought my friend was joking because I was in disbelief, my friend just lost someone close to him, I mean real close and I dropped my phone and tears started rolling down my eyes.


I didn't know the person personally but my friend is involved so I am supposed to share his pain and I did, it hurt me so much because I can't imagine what he is going through, someone you were with the day before and the next min they are gone and the worse part is that they are gone forever and there is no coming back.


I broke down for some days and I could not do anything and even at work I could not function properly, I started getting myself when I noticed that my friend is handling it properly.


Till now I still feel bad and I am still shocked, this made me realize that this life is fragile and I wish people know this because if we did we would treat each other better and with respect.


What happened to my friend made me see life differently again and I realized that you need to love and cherish your loved ones and we should live life as if every day would be our last.


Love your parents and love your kids and love your husband and wife because when they leave this world there is no coming back, don't get angry at all, just scold them with one hand and love them with the other hand, may the Lord always give us reasons to laugh and be happy and not to cry, amen

Some people always want you to suffer the way they did Abroad

It took me many years to get into this wonderful country(been trying since 2011) and somehow I have always known that my destiny is in Brazil and I was so right, immediately I landed in this God's own country everything started working out for me, it was so fast that some people were confused, lol. They were like how did he do it, how come, you way just enter don get PR, many people have been in Brazil for years and no PR.


I told the person that I have suffered in the country that I was living in before and God didn't bring me to Brazil to suffer, in fact, everything was just clicking for me and I got mad love from Brazilians and this is why I started blogging about brazil to tell people the other side of this wonderful country, so when you land in Brazil just keep a small circle and just do your thing and do not be discouraged by side talks, again keep a very small circle e get why.

This is what Brazilian wax looks like

This is exactly what Brazilian wax looks like and people in Brazil love to remove pubic hairs this way and it is not really painful

ATM's in Brazil always use Bio-metrics

In my home country your mum could give you her card and her pin and you can go to the nearest atm and make a withdrawal for her but in Brazil it is different, you cant withdraw for someone because all bank ATMs have biometric features.


Itau bank uses your finger while Bradesco uses your palm


I have seen old people in wheelchairs being brought down to the atm spot because they can't send their kids to withdraw for them and the banks in Brazil did this to save themselves from paying stolen money

emergency service numbers in Brazil

If you are visiting brazil and you have some issues and you need help here are the numbers to call and help would be on the way like I told you all before emergency services work perfectly in brazil




My experience taking the first dose of covid vaccine In brazil

First of all, I thank God for keeping us safe because this pandemic stole a lot of lives from all over the world and a lot of people died in Brazil as well, and I am someone that is always outside and I also deliver to people so I thank God for keeping me safe.


I always have alcohol spray in my pocket and I always have my mask on, but the issue I had was time to go and take the vaccine because I am always busy and I had to make sure the companies got it right before taking it so yesterday I finally decided to take the vaccine and it was fast.


I got to the clinic, I was told to sit and after 5mins we went in


In Brazil you would be allowed to choose the vaccine you want(damn I love Brazil), there were 3 options Coronavac, Pfizer, and AstraZeneca, I choose Pfizer and before injecting you the doctor would show you the syringe for you to confirm that the vaccine is inside, it was fast and painful, lol


After taking the vaccine I felt nothing, I went back to work, and when it was around 4pm. I started feeling bad, my arm was hurting and I could not lift it and I was feeling sick


Immediately I got home I put some ice on my arm and I had some Broth because I really had no appetite and I slept off, I woke up this morning feeling stronger and better and I would take the second dose in a few months time






Man finds piles of cash on the road

 Who hasn't dreamt of finding piles of money on the road, everything is possible in Venezuela

The Wonderful meaning of the Brazilian flag

The flag of Brazil (Portuguese: Bandeira do Brasil), is a blue disc depicting a starry sky (which includes the Southern Cross) spanned by a curved band inscribed with the national motto "Ordem e Progresso" ("Order and Progress"), within a yellow rhombus, on a green field. Brazil officially adopted this design for its national flag on November 19, 1889 — four days after the Proclamation of the Republic, to replace the flag of the Empire of Brazil. The concept was the work of Raimundo Teixeira Mendes, with the collaboration of Miguel Lemos, Manuel Pereira Reis and Décio Villares.


The green field and yellow parallelogram from the previous imperial flag were preserved (though slightly modified in hue and shape). In the imperial flag, the green represented the House of Braganza of Pedro I, the first Emperor of Brazil, while the yellow represented the House of Habsburg of his wife, Empress Maria Leopoldina.A blue circle with white five-pointed stars replaced the arms of the Empire of Brazil — its position in the flag reflects the sky over the city of Rio de Janeiro on November 15, 1889. The motto Ordem e Progresso is derived from Auguste Comte's motto of positivism: "L'amour pour principe et l'ordre pour base; le progrès pour but" ("Love as a principle and order as the basis; progress as the goal").


Each star, corresponding to a Brazilian Federal Unit, is sized in proportion relative to its geographic size, and, according to Brazilian Law, the flag must be updated in case of creation or extinction of a state. At the time the flag was first adopted in 1889, it had 21 stars. It then received one more star in 1960 (representing the city-state of Guanabara), then another in 1968 (representing Acre), and finally four more stars in 1992 (representing Amapá, Roraima, Rondônia and Tocantins), totalling 27 stars in its current versions. 



Construction


The precise positions of the 27 in all stars on the globe make the Brazilian flag one of the most complicated national flags to construct. The official design is defined by law no. 5,700, issued on 1 September 1971.[9] The flag's length is twenty modules and the width, fourteen, translating into an aspect ratio of 10:7. The distance of the vertices of the yellow rhombus to the outer frame is a module and seven-tenths (1.7 m). The blue circle in the middle of the yellow rhombus has a radius of three and a half modules (3.5 m). The center of the arcs of the white band is two modules (2 m) to the left of the meeting point of the extended vertical diameter of the circle with the base of the outer frame. The radius of the lower arc of the white band is eight modules (8m) and the radius of the upper arc of the white band is eight and a half modules (8.5 m). The width of the white band is a half of a module (0.5 m).


The caption "Ordem e Progresso" is written in green letters. The letter P lies on the vertical diameter of the circle. The letters of the word "Ordem" and the word "Progresso" are a third of a module (0.33 m) tall. The width of these letters are three-tenths of a module (0.30 m). The conjunction E has a height of three-tenths of a module (0.30 m) and a width of a quarter of a module (0.25 m).


The stars are of five different sizes: first, second, third, fourth and fifth magnitudes. They are drawn within circles whose diameters are: three-tenths of a module (0.30 m) for the first magnitude, a quarter of a module (0.25 m) for the second magnitude; a fifth of a module (0.20 m) for the third magnitude, a seventh of a module (0.14 m) for the fourth magnitude, and a tenth of a module (0.10 m) for the fifth magnitude.

why you must Be careful with credit cards in Brazil

When you are in Brazil you have to behave like a Brazilian and follow the system and I remember how I started with getting credit of **** reais from Banco do Bradesco and thank you Bradesco, they gave me credit when other banks refused so I am grateful and in my opinion, Bradesco is the best bank for foreigners in Brazil.


I applied for credit from different banks when  I just arrived then and they did not approve it.


But now my credit score is great and I have been getting approval from banks and even banks are sending me messages offering me credit.


You have to be careful with credit cards because one small mistake and your rating would drop, don't take more than you need.


I was surprised I got an email from a bank that I applied for back then and they approved my credit card but I don't think I  need it because I already have enough credit. I don't want to be sucked in again. So when you have a good credit rating, banks would be trying to suck you in.


So my advice is don't take more than you need and always clear your credit on time unless the Interest would be too much for you and once you don't pay back your name would be blacklisted

So Sweet and easy to do business in Brazil

Brazil is the economic powerhouse of South America and the largest economy and they also have a population of over 200m also with a very vibrant market and the Brazilian people love business and the average Brazilian is a businessman, you would see them selling to make money


I love doing business in Brazil and it is very sweet and easy, lol


This is what I do


I go to the market use my credit card, buy goods, come to my kiosk sell them pay back the money I used to buy them, and also remove my gain and I go to the market again use my credit card and repeat the process again, lol


I don't need cash to do business in Brazil, I hope you understand why it is easy and sweet to do business in Brazil😂

The difference between the corruption of The white man and The black man

I would Make it short and simple, the white man steals money and he would build the best hospital where he can be treated when he falls sick but the black man is so dumb and he would never do that he would instead take the money of his people to the white man's land to get treatment.


Yes, the white man is more corrupt than the black man, who helped Abacha move millions of dollars to Switzerland? The white man, Who kept the money in Switzerland for Abacha? The white man


Who steals oil on the high sea? The white man


Who steals resources in Africa? The white man


So the white Man is more corrupt, but when the white man steals money  he would not bring that money to Africa, he would take it to the caymans controlled by the same white man, lol


But the black man is corrupt and stupid, he steals money from his people and he takes that same money to the white man's country instead of investing that money in Africa


So I hope you can see the difference and like I said before the hospitality business that I am into would always mix with politics because this is why people in Africa are running to the white man's land because of corruption in Africa or the black man's corruption.

How to book a bus ride in Brazil

As you all know I love  traveling and what I do also involves traveling and Brazil is a very big market and I can travel all around Brazil and create great content even before I start traveling around South America


I love traveling by bus because it is more convenient and cheaper, Brazilian bus rides are awesome, full AC, TV, and free WiFi, so I always love traveling by bus and the best part is that most times the bus won't even have too many passengers.


So if you also love traveling by bus like me when you arrive in Brazil you can check  www.clickbus.com but you need to make sure you have your CPF but you can also buy your ticket at the bus terminal, enjoy your bus ride

My experience: I delivered to a client that works at Honda brazil

I don't only sell from a kiosk in Brazil, "aboki kiosk" like my people always call it, I also sell online, I have a registered business so it helps me a lot and people can trust you.


I also deliver to clients and I can go anywhere and this was how I got to know alot of places because of delivery.


A lady saw my ad on Facebook and she wanted an original product that I sell,she wanted to give it to her husband as a Christmas gift, so we agreed on the price and I told her once I close from work I would bring it down and before I even left the house she sent a message, because i always reconfirm delivery because some Brazilians don't know how to cancel deliveries if they are no longer interested in the item, you would talk to a client and agree on the delivery time only for you to shut down your business go home and send a message to the client and he would say that he is no longer interested, so I always reconfirm delivery now before I close. 


I got a bus heading to the place the clouds was already dark and I knew it would rain but I secured the product very well and immediately the bus dropped me the rain started falling, I got drenched and I entered a shopping mall near the honda showroom to cool off and I sent her a picture that I am near her already and it was still raining, I had to enter the rain again to the Honda office because she told me her uber ride is on the way already, delivery was late because of the bus and tunnel construction in the area and I did not carry an umbrella because the rain didn't even show any sign before I left the house


I entered the Honda showroom and we exchanged pleasantries and she checked the product and transferred my money I thanked her and I left, but I could not help myself the cars there was really nice, as you can see in the pictures below, it has always been my dream to buy a  tear nylon car like we call it where I come from and the reason is that I hate car stress(wahala), I want a clean ride that you can use for many years without stress. 


I was saying to myself that I need to blow in Brazil😆😆😆, I need someone to buy a property in Brazil and obtain permanent residency for himself or herself and their dependants and it would also speed up the process for you to become a Brazilian citizen, I know it would happen sooner or later, so invite your politician friends to come and buy a house in Brazil, it is a good business destination, political stability, rule of law, human rights and wonderful people, I need to blow for Brazil, you can buy and use it for Airbnb check out those lovely Honda rides

This is what Brazilian Garri called Farofa Looks Like

 Farofa is a toasted cassava or cornflour mixture. It is eaten mainly in Brazil. It can be found commercially produced and packaged but can also be prepared at home based on family recipes. Most recipes will also contain varying amounts of salt, smoked meat, and spices. The consistency of the mixture ranges from large grains the size of cracked bulgur wheat or couscous down to a table-salt-sized powder. Most farofa have a very smoky and slightly salty taste, by and large, used to accentuate the taste of meat, particularly barbecued meat and hearty stews.


In Brazil, where farofa is particularly popular, typical recipes call for raw cassava flour to be toasted with abundant butter, vegetable oil or olive oil, salt, bacon, onions, garlic, sausage, olives until golden brown. It is sometimes served as an accompaniment to Brazilian feijoada and Brazilian barbecue. In Brazil, farofa is also used in a stuffing for poultry and other dishes, usually containing raisins, nuts, and/or finely chopped sweet fruits like apples and bananas. In the state of Bahia, it is common for farofa to be prepared with dendê oil, giving it a stronger taste and a rich yellow coloring.





Farofa is served alongside the main course and can either be sprinkled on by individual diners to their taste before eating, or eaten as an accompaniment in its own right, as rice is often consumed. Besides cassava, corn meal is also used for farofa making.


In West Africa, a variant of cassava flour known as garri is used in various dishes. 

This is what Brazilian Cow Leg called Mocoto Looks Like

Mocotó is a Brazilian dish made from cow's feet, stewed with beans and vegetables. The name is derived from the Kimbundu mbokotó.


This dish is also popular in Portuguese cuisine, where it is known as mão de vaca com grão. The only difference in the Portuguese variation is the inclusion of chickpeas.


Mocoto was originally made in Angola and picked up by the Portuguese during their colonization of the southwestern African country. Brazil later adopted the dish and incorporated their own taste by adding vegetables. 









In Brazil, 17% of richest are black in 2016

 

NOTE: This article was written in 2016, I am sure that by now the number of rich black people in brazil would have risen to 30% or more


In 2005, black people amounted to 11% of the population, but From 2005 to 2015, the number of black people among the richest Brazilian increased from 11.4% to 17.8%. Nonetheless, the white population is still the majority. Eight out of every ten Brazilians are among the 1% richest portion of the population. On the other hand, among the poorest, three of every four are black. Over half of the Brazilian population (54%) is made up of people who are black or pardo (seen in the same category as “black”). Of every ten people, three are black women.

The data were released Friday (Dec. 2) by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) in the Summary of Social Indicators – An Analysis of the Living Conditions of the Brazilian Population

Difficulties

According to the IBGE, the figures have to do with education, to which the black population is not given access as easily. In 2015, even though the number of blacks at the university doubled, driven by affirmative actions, a mere 12.8% of them went to university, whereas whites in an undergraduate program reached 26.5% of the total in the same year.

This is what Brazilian Eko called Acaca Looks Like

Acaçá (from Yoruba: àkàsà, also known as eko) is a ritual food central to ceremonies of Afro-Brazilian religions, specifically to Candomblé rituals. It is found in the states of Bahia, Pernambuco, Rio Grande do Sul, and Rio de Janeiro. Pai Cido de Osun Eyin stated that "life  is sustained, and is renewed with the ritual offering of acaçá." It has at least two variations: a similar dish made of black beans (acaçá de feijão-preto) and a drink (acaçá de leite) also used in Candomblé rituals.


Acaçá is the only ritual food required in Candomblé; it is offered to all the orixás in the Candomblé pantheon. Acaçá made of white corn is offered to Oxala; that made of yellow corn is offered to Oxossi.











remember this coconut snack in Nigeria we also have it in brazil

Cocada are a traditional coconut confectionery found in many parts of Latin America. They are particularly popular in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela, and Ecuador. They are oven-baked but are served at room temperature to provide their chewy and soft texture. Made with eggs and shredded coconut, cocadas come in a variety of colors due to the modern use of food coloring,however, the traditional variations are golden brown. They are often garnished with almonds, either whole or chopped. There are hundreds of cocadas recipes, from the typical hard, very sweet balls to cocadas that are almost the creamy texture of flan. Other fruit, often dried, can be added to the cocadas to create variety, which will also lend to a wide spectrum of cocada colors. Cocadas are mentioned as early as 1878 in Peru. 


Brazil


In Brazil, cocada are a traditional confectionery originating from the northeast of the country. They are often long and thin rather than round, and are sold in the streets.


One variation of cocada in Brazil is the "black cocada" (Portuguese: Cocada preta) made with brown sugar and slightly burnt coconut. In Brazil, "rei da cocada preta" (black cocada king) is used to refer to an arrogant person who thinks too highly of himself.



Although similar, cocadas and queijadinhas are not the same thing. The cocada is usually made from coconut and sugar only, rolled together to form an amorphous mass. Queijadinha is made with more ingredients and gets its shape from the baking tin.
