“What’s in a reputation? Certainly one of my favorite facets of Nigerian tradition is the burden that sure tribes give to the naming of their youngsters.
Naija dad and mom don’t simply accept names that sound good. We really give our children “mini prayers” or “prophesies” as names.
See, my father’s identify is “Bankole”, and it could have been customary for me to inherit the identical actual identify as him… besides that “Bankole” means “assist me construct my home”; and so when naming me, my dad and mom deliberately added“Olu” which is the Yoruba phrase for “God”, making my identify “Olubankole” or “GOD assist me construct my home”, in order that the prayer would switch the duty for assist to God , versus leaving it open ended for simply anybody/circumstances/destiny.
That’s why I both want to be referred to as “Banky” or “Olubankole”, by no means “Bankole”. As a result of it’s God that helps me.
I grew up holding on to my identify as a prayer level, as a result of I consider within the energy of constructive confession, and in my thoughts, proudly owning a house was the surest signal that I had really turn out to be profitable.
So, simply the act of claiming my identify, was me LITERALLY saying that God HAD to assist me construct my home.
Residence possession grew to become an obsession; and to all of the younger people on the market hustling to safe the bag and progress on the earth, I like to recommend that you simply do the identical.
I perceive the will to stunt a little bit bit, however before you purchase that fancy luxurious automotive and cop watches and chains… earlier than you hit the strip membership and make it rain… earlier than you’re taking the “cash telephone” image and pop bottles of champagne…
do your best possible to personal the home you reside in. Then attempt to personal another as an funding. Your future children will thanks.
Thank God for answering my prayers, by serving to me prolong my pursuits in the true property sector additional. I would like to present a really particular shoutout to @thehavenhomes for being essentially the most spectacular Actual Property Growth agency I’ve ever handled, and for making it attainable to work with them on my subsequent property.
