Yes, We Are Renewing Our Marriage Vow – Real Warri Pikin




Speaking with NAOMI CHIMA, Anita Asuoha, aka Real Warri Pikin, explains her journey to fame and why she chose to renew her vow with her husband despite being legally married for 10 years

Can you share with us your grass to grace story?

I have always been a star. I used to dance back in the day in the years 2000 and 2001. In 2008, I went to the Glo RocknRoll where I danced, won and became a Glo ambassador. In 2009, I also went to the Maltina family dance hall and qualified for a family competition. We came out as the second runner-up. But some events in 2018 and 2019 redefined everything. I changed my name and started doing stand-up comedy and became an online influencer. I also started acting and had my first debut in the movie, “King of Boys.” I have always been into entertainment but it got defined in 2018 and 2019, all thanks to social media.

What made you choose the name Real Warri Pikin? 

I used to make videos and send them to a group chat I had with some of my friends and colleagues when I used to work at the National Youth Service Corps. I would make them critique the videos and they usually did. One day, I told them I wanted to get a name and one of them, Nene, said “Real Warri Pikin,” and I said that is the name and since then, it stuck. Also, because I love to identify with where I am from, it made a lot of sense to me.

You run a non-governmental organisation called Real Warri Pikin Foundation, can you share with us what influenced the decision?

What influenced me to own that NGO was that in 2018, my kids were sent back home from school as we could not afford their school fees. It was so and many things also happened at the time. I told myself that if I made it, I would have an NGO where I would be paying children’s school fees. I launched the NGO in 2019 and since then, I have had what I call the “Back to School” project through which I pay school fees, and give out writing materials, and uniforms. I do this every year.

I attempted suicide in 2018 because I was depressed but God saved my life. It was debt that pushed me to that point. I invested in something I knew nothing about and also stood as a guarantor for other people and when the thing crashed I became indebted to N22m. MMM, Freedom, a series of Ponzi schemes, and even one crypto thing that went for an upgrade and never came back. I was making money from it at some point, got people involved and told them that they would outlive their money. But it crashed and they came for me. The debt was too much that I went to loan money from some microfinance banks but it was so much that I thought I would not get out of it, so I decided to take my life but God saved me. In the whole of 2019, I was busy paying up those debts as I started doing social media influencing.

Why the decision to renew your marriage vows after 10 years of being lawfully married to your husband? What inspired the decision?

Yes, I am getting married again and it is my dream wedding. When we got married 10 years ago, it was a low-budget wedding and it was not what we dreamed our wedding would be like. We told ourselves that if God blesses us in 10 years to come, we will have our dream wedding. God has blessed us, we are doing well, so come June, I will be getting married again to my husband.

What is your description of a peaceful home as far as marriage is concerned?

When we have two people who forgive, who see themselves as partners and support each other, and the man can make submission ready for the woman, and the ego man in turn is ready, I respect the man.

Which comedian will you like to work with outside the country?

Kevin Hart is an American comedian. I would love to work with him because we do the same kind of comedy and talk about reality.

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.
