The get to know me tag



So I have been blogging for a while now and I found out many people that follow my blog know little to nothing about me. I apologise, it was a slip-up. Anyways, here are questions that I answered. I hope it gives you insight on the person I am and help you connect with my blog better. Don't forget to like and follow me on social media, its bibilamour04 on all platforms.

Here we go...

Are you named after anyone?

No, I'm not.

Does your name have a special meaning?

My name is a Yoruba name given to kids that were born when their dad wasn’t around. My dad travelled to the Philippines when I was born. I like to think of my name as a promise kept, in the sense that my mum and I were fine in expectant of my dad.

However, my nickname is BB gotten from my initials Bidemi Babatunde. I upgraded it to Bibi to make it more mouth full. This is for all the people that assume I formed Bibi myself😢😢, now you know the source. 

When was the last time you cried?


On Sunday the 4th of November, I had issues with my flight ticket at the airport and I had to wait 6 hours to catch another flight. I was playing a role in the church service that evening and was sad to be missing out on service. I just needed to cry a little. It was so annoying 😭😭

Thank you so much for reading through, I hope this was fun reading, I had so much fun writing this post. I appreciate you.

Quickly, I want to remind you that God is not angry with you and Jesus loves you deeply. If you have doubts about Jesus or you find it hard to enjoy a relationship with him, he is waiting for you with arms wide open.

Just lift up your hands and say “Come, Lord Jesus, fill me with the Holy Spirit, I surrender my life to you”

It is that simple!

With love,
Bibi.

Are Men Scum: The godly man guide

Men are Scum: The godly man guide to not being a scum
Last week, I watched Larry Charles' dangerous world of comedy on Netflix and the third episode focused on sexism.  It turns out that Nigeria's comedy industry thrives on sexists jokes that objectify women, normalise rape and encourage the exploitation of women. It was one of the most disgusting things I have ever watched. It's interesting that many think rape is a thing to joke about and the audience laughs at those vile jokes that involve victim blaming. Sexism is broadly seen in our society from the blue collar workers to the board room bosses, from Nollywood movies to product commercials. It is so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we don’t intend to hurt women with our words or actions, it is just a thing of a "normal thing". The truth is I am not trying to vilify anyone. The average man was dealt sexism as a part of being in this present day society. The good thing is you can unlearn all of these thin…

Have faith, you will make it

Faith it till you make it
"Fake it till you make" was my go-to word and action while I was doing my post-graduate studies. For those that don't know what this means it is simply the act of imitating confidence, competence, and an optimistic mindset until you achieve your goals even when everything is not going your way. Basically, you may be discouraged on the inside about a situation but you act as though you are positive about it on the outside. For science lovers, this act is actually based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). But since we are Christians, I decided to title it faith it till you make it because I realize that faking it keeps us limited at our own abilities. But when you “faith it”, you will assuredly make it!
Mark 11:23-23 (TLB) In reply Jesus said to the disciples, “If you only have faith in God—this is the absolute truth—you can say to this Mount of Olives, ‘Rise up and fall into the Mediterranean,’ and your command will be obeyed. All that’s requi…

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love. 


Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose.


On the 24th of March, 2012 my life changed forever. As the secretary of the History and International Studies student association at Babcock University (2012), I was part of the planning process for the annual departmental field trip.
