The Evergreen G6 Club, a Non-Governmental Organisaion (NGO) has donated  some food items worth N300,000 to Rachel’s Home for the Orphans and Vulnerable Children  Kurudu, in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Mr Bamidele  Olujobi,  the President of the Club, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday.

Olujobi , represented by the Secretary of the club, Mr Philip  Akpa, said that the items donated to the orphanage home included bags of  rice, cartons of indomie noodles and  cartons of spaghetti

Other food items  are yams, toiletries, bags of salt, kegs of groundnut oil, palm oil, bags of beans and beverages.

According to Olujobi, needs of the vulnerable and orphans should not be left for only the governments and the owners of the organisations.

He said God Almighty had blessed the members of the organisation and they were now giving back to the society.

“Some of these homes like Rachel’s Home for Orphans and Vulnerable Children provided the opportunity for us to give back to the needy and the vulnerable in the society.

“Particularly this period every member  of this club, who is a Christian, is celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ which is Easter and this is the period, where every child will need a touch of a parent and need for somebody to celebrate with them.

“So, we said we should come here to celebrate Easter with them in  a way they will not feel the absence of their biological parents , as we  are standing in as their parents today,” he said.

Olujobi, said the club had given scholarships to several vulnerable and indigents students up to university level, adding that eight students were recently registered for WAEC and NECO exams by the organisation.

He explained that the club had previously visited the Old Peoples Home in Kardo, FCT and Apo Mechanic Village as well as the orphanage home in Masaka in the Nasarawa State.

He said the club has annual projects it carries out every year in order to assist the vulnerable and the needy and had donated item like braille for the school of blind.

He urged the Federal Government to pay more attention on supervision and monitoring of the orphanage homes and schools for the vulnerable in order to check the incidence of child’s trafficking and kidnapping.

Olujobi, also advised the governments to establish vocation facilities such as tailoring, mason, carpentry and barbing salon where these vulnerable and needy children could be trained as well as paying of school fees for them.

He also called on the Federal Government to reduce the issues of banditry and terrorism which always gave rise to orphans and vulnerable children who lost their parents as a result of these factors.

Dr Oladele Oluayinka, Chairman, Project Committee of the club, said the club had 30 financial members who had the passion  to help the need and vulnerable, “hence they came together to form the club in order to assist them”.

Oluayinka,  said since the establishment of the  club in 2011, it had spent over N5 million in order to provide succour for the needy and vulnerable children.

Earlier, Mr Pedro Odewu, Admin Director, of the orphanage home, thanked the club and expressed satisfaction for the food items it gifted to the home.

He urged the federal and state governments to come to their aid; as they have over 83 children; infants and adolescent who required a lot of monies and personnel to take care of them.

What Slay Queens Can Learn From Hilda’s Success!



Hilda’s passion for cooking is not unconnected to her mother’s source of livelihood.

Her mother owns a restaurant. And Hilda won’t be where she is today if she didn’t pay attention to her mother’s efforts and subsequently developed herself.

A lot of people that are doing well economically are actually those who learned a trade or skill from their parents and then built on what they learned.

Most young people that are jobless today have no reason to be, if only they can bring down their eyes and learn at the feet of the master…their parents. But, these are people who have never looked at whatever it is their parents have succeeded at.

Meanwhile, strangers are learning and becoming established from the very source the heirs are taking for granted.

Most slay queens don’t enter their mothers’ shops and can’t even afford to identify with whatever it is that puts food on the table of their parents.

There’s a very beautiful young lady that I grew fond of at the market, simply because of the way she helped out with her mother’s tomatoes business.

She did so cheerfully.

While her efforts at that market lasted, I never bought what I can buy from them elsewhere…just to encourage her and I am sure many others felt same way towards her.

Hilda has proved once again that the only thing that can take you farther in life is a passion that is laced with hard work!

It is not the body that you have enhanced surgically.

I mean a lot of ladies are cosmetically enhancing their bodies now and nothing remarkable is happening in their lives.

When your passion is alive and you can put in the work, life will give you a stage.

Cultivate your circle.

I took my time to comb through Hilda’s social media handles and what was very evident is that her (celebrity) circle is a huge part of her success story.

Once you figure out what you want out of life, the next step is to be intentional about your social circle. Her circle gave her visibility long before now and when time came for the world to hear her name, her circle didn’t disappoint.

You must have something to offer!

Even if you cultivate the acquaintance of the president of the country without having something to offer, you are not more than a social climber. And there’s not much anybody can do for somebody whose desire for success isn’t fueled by passion.

Please have it at the back of your mind that when you know what you want, life will give you an opportunity to prove your mettle and have your big break. But, when you have nothing to offer, even if there are opportunities before you, you won’t know what to do with them.

It takes a person who has something to offer to actually recognise and grab opportunities that are meant to take them to the next level.

Life cannot do for you what you should do for yourself.

“For life makes no mistakes and always gives man that which man first gives to himself,” says Neville Goddard.

When the video of Hilda’s lovely house made the rounds on social media, one of the reactions that greeted the video was from a young lady, who simply wrote “I am feeling oppressed and motivated. I claim this kind of life.”

My direct reply to her was, “Claim the life that God has ordained for you. Nothing else.”

Stop “claiming” other people’s kind of life.

There’s more to people that we don’t know.

You might even return all that you have “claimed” if you are ever privy to their actual reality.

 Nobody’s life is so ideal that you should want it. It is better to focus on making your own life what you love living.

“I Was Homeless At Some Point” – Hilda Baci Opens Up On Past Struggles



Hilda Baci

Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci who gained popularity following her 100 hours of marathon cooking to surpass the previous Guinness World record set by an Indian chef, Lata Tondon, in 2019 for the longest time spent by an individual on cooking has opened up about past struggles in her life.

Speaking during a recent TV interview, the 27-year-old chef narrated that things had not always been smooth for her but she hopes her story motivates other people not to give up.

According to her, at a point in time, she was homeless but she didn’t give up.

Baci narrated further that though she has achieved some things right now, she is not stopping or resting on her oars.

“A lot of people see this buzz now, and most of them think I dropped from the sky. They don’t know I was homeless at some point. There’s an entire phase and journey that got me here, and I’m not even done.

“This is still part of a journey. I’m still on a path, and I’m still going. It’s not always going to be rosy. It’s not always going to be easy. But we need more examples like this so people can say, ‘Hilda did it, so I can do it as well,” she said during a recent interview with TVC.

Hilda Baci Spends N1.1m On Lunch With Friends




Cook-a-thon record breaker, Hilda Effiong-Bassey, popularly called Hilda Baci has spent over N1.1m on a lunch date with her friends.

Baci’s friend, in a video clip reposted by Instablog9ja, was heard saying after church service on Sunday, they all visited a restaurant for lunch.

She explained that after placing their orders, the bill was N1.1m, adding that Baci paid the money.

“Happy Sunday guys, so today, we went to church to thank God for a successful Cook-a-thon. After service, we decided to stop by for brunch, you guys, we ordered the world, and when our bills came in, it was N1.1m, we were like what did we order? But no worries because we were with the world record breaker, so she paid the bill,” Baci’s friend said.

In the video clip, Baci was seen in the company of her friends at the restaurant. The receipt was also displayed in the video clip.

The PUNCH had reported that Baci, at the outset of the marathon cooking streamed on Instagram and YouTube, her goal was to outclass the Indian record holder, who cooked for 87 hours and 45 minutes in 2019, by achieving a non-stop cooking target of 96 hours.

However, with sheer determination and a boisterous crowd including celebrities cheering her up as she engaged in the cooking, Baci, after clinching the 96-hour target, went on to set a new global record of non-stop cooking for 100 hours.

Notable government officials including the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd); Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, President-elect, Bola Tinubu, presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi respectively, and the governors of Lagos and Akwa-Ibom states, Sanwo-Olu and Udom Emmanuel, among others have congratulated the chef on the new feat.
