In Summary

It is the weird thing about going public with things, just imagine, what if this pastor had raised a human from the dead in an empty mortuary, just the two of them with other dead homies, no one would be analysing how dead the dead was.

I have always had a problem with publicising things, for instance, while in high school, I could hardly come out and confirm I was in a relationship with a certain Daisy.

Because every time things became public, Daisy would want to be treated differently and as if the devil was at work, more farmers would want to plough that daisy after that.

But when he decided to perform his miracle before cameras, people started analysing it to the last detail, today, we at least know that his audience was filled with cast and crew members from the past miracles.

I have always had the same feeling about weddings that people insist on having aired on different TV stations.

This whole madness started around 2007 and today, each TV station with time on Sunday has a wedding show. During such shows a boy child will be seen running about with someone’s daughter they are marrying off, talk about all these things they like about each other and later eat their exaggerated food.

Over the years, I have learnt that TVs have allowed parents to use weddings as battle ground, the father of the bride will use the platform to tell the other family that their son has hit a jackpot while in return, a cheeky father may say some obnoxious things such as, “he has always attracted more beautiful girls.”

It is not that these things never happen off TV, they do but when they happen in the presence of that local TV’s cameras, you give us a chance to turn the entire wedding into a social media meme.

Just the other day my mother, while visiting, made me go through an episode of a wedding show. Here was a father who took time to inform us that they do have a big family but since all of them could not show up.

Then he went on to the country dropping parade; “your brother, who is a doctor in Canada, says hi”, “Your other sister, a physician, who also has a two masters’ degrees and lives in New Hampshire also said hi..”

Dude had gone on to mention people from Sweden, Paris and almost all the countries of the European Union, on another episode, there was this father whose accent changed almost every minute.

But even with all this drama, no one could beat the daughter who noted that he siblings have been like sisters to her!

That is when I grabbed the remote.
