The Young Professionals were so happy, they had no restraints, they worked hard but they denied themselves no pleasure. That was the way to live! She too needed that sense of liberation and active pursuit of pleasure, she told herself.

Kayla was staring at her phone screen. The image of a couple she had chanced upon on a Val card had her mesmerised. It was a full-length silhouette and the bodies of the guy and the lady were welded together. They were standing on a beach and the grey lighting suggested it was early morning.

Kayla often daydreamed and this image launched her fully into that halcyon place where the couple stood. She unlocked the girl’s arms from behind the guy’s neck, pried her loose and took her place. She buried her face in his broad shoulders and began to weep because much as she loved the feel of his warm skin against hers, she knew it was not real.

“Earth to Kay-la, earth to kay-la!” her friend, Chiamaka, sang into her ear from behind.

Startled, she slowly wiped her tears. Chiamaka leaned on Kayla’s oak reading desk and took in her cute, sad face. (You could never guess she was above 20, she looked not a day older than 18). Kayla’s dad had succumbed to diabetes a few months earlier, so Chiamaka thought the tears were part of her ongoing grieving process.

Placing her hands on Kayla’s shoulders, she offered kind words of comfort. Then she made a suggestion:

“I know you can’t stop the tears, they just come when you are alone. So, how about moving to the hostel with me in the meantime? When this phase is over, as I’m sure it will, you can move right back.”

Kayla played along. She was never fond of her dad. He had been a polygamist whom she and her mum (his third wife) hardly saw. But being a business mogul, he kept them in splendour and paid for her N150,000 efficiency apartment as soon as she got admission into the university. The furniture in her 10 by 10-ft room cost over half a million and her monthly allowance was a hundred thousand Naira. Her mum had assured her that they had been amply provided for by her late dad in his will and she had a thriving fashion store. So mourning her dad on emotional grounds or the loss of comfort his death portended was out of the question. But people would think her cold if she revealed that, so she heaved a few times and let loose a few more tears to make her friend feel useful as a sympathiser. Then she assured Chiamaka she would be fine alone.

But deep down, Kayla was angry with herself. She was all of 24 and still a virgin! As an only child largely left to her own devices, she could have had a boyfriend, boyfriends actually, but she chose to bury herself in her books. Mathematics was her thing and she spent three years teaching it at a private secondary school in Ikoyi where she and her mum lived before writing the University Matriculation Exam. She saw herself as a missionary mathematician, hoping that someday she would have a platform through which she could improve young people’s numeracy skills and show them that Mathematics is a part of life- it’s not something to be afraid of. She was in her penultimate semester at the University of Benin and certain to make a First Class in Mathematics Education, her dream course.


But Kayla was unhappy with herself for not taking more interest in boys and disgusted that she was still a virgin. Chiamaka would be horrified if she could read her thoughts. She was a virgin too but just 19. Kayla felt she needed some diversion, otherwise she might graduate and carry on as she’d been doing.

“Don’t wanna end up as a cat lady,” she told herself.

Chiamaka was a Catholic girl promised to the son of a family friend living in the US. Kayla came across the image that had her transfixed because Chiamaka told her to find a suitable free card online where she could add a personal Val message for her fiancé. She was saving herself for marriage and that was the reason she befriended Kayla, a serious student and decent Anglican who wouldn’t pressure her to sleep with anyone.

Well, Kayla was determined to do just that: sleep with anyone, and if possible do it frequently before she left the campus.

She had no clear idea if she wanted to be married but she had started watching a TV series called, “Young Professionals,” some months back. It challenged her intellectually because in each episode, one of the cast members undertook a task and she enjoyed working along with whoever it was to accomplish the task. These people were computer programmers, accountants, lawyers and so on- very bright people.

But another strong feature of the show was its high sexual content. There was an underlying assumption in the show that sex was essential to existence, to happiness, to productivity, you name it. The cast ridiculed those who were not sexually active on a regular basis and hooked up casually with one another. They did the same with their colleagues at work and their neighbours, no strings attached. They also went to bars on weekends to pick up dates whom they brought home …..

At first, Kayla objected to this part of the programme but kept watching because she found the show mentally stimulating. The cast members were drop dead gorgeous and brilliant. She loved them and never missed an episode of the show (one of the benefits of being able to afford cable TV subscription as a student). She installed the app of the cable TV service on her phone so that she could watch the show even when she was away from her apartment. She assured herself she was a big girl and far from impressionable. But you can only watch so many explicit sex scenes and they begin to get to you. Kayla started having erotic daydreams and hated herself for living a withdrawn life on campus.

The Young Professionals were so happy, they had no restraints, they worked hard but they denied themselves no pleasure. That was the way to live! She too needed that sense of liberation and active pursuit of pleasure, she told herself.

“I think this is perfect. What do you think?” Chiamaka asked.

She passed her troublesome Comwi Android phone to Kayla. She had written a Val poem for her fiancé, Obiajulu. As Kayla read it, she told herself that the forthcoming Val Day would be the day. She still had three days to search for a guy to do the honours for her. Who would be the lucky guy? It didn’t even matter- anyone was anyone- as long as he wore a condom.



Kayla recognised the apple tree. It was in the centre of her paternal grandfather’s compound. The apples were red and ripe. “What a waste!” she exclaimed, but a voice sternly asked her, “Why, why would you say that?”

As Kayla wondered who was speaking and whether they were really talking about the apples, the voice added, “I don’t expect that from you, Tinito. The world has gone crazy! What was once cherished is now despised. But I don’t expect that from you.”

Kayla woke up with a start. She was still sitting at her desk. She must have dozed off after Chiamaka left.

She remembered her dream and realised it was connected to her decision. Only Nana Oruke, her paternal grandmother, called her Tinito. Although she hadn’t seen her in over a year, she phoned occasionally to find out how she was doing and she was always praying for her. It was quite curious that the bond she lacked with her dad, she had in excess with his mum.

The thought of prayer reminded her that it was ages since she had prayed for herself or read her Bible. No wonder she had been sucked in by the Young Professionals. She stopped questioning their world view and accepted their progressive standards as the norm. She felt worthless and unfulfilled compared to them and saw her virginity as a load to be hastily discarded, rather than a part of her that should be cherished.

The worst of it was that all the while, she forgot that the show was not real. It was all make-believe. The cast may not actually be that bright and sophisticated and happy in reality. They were just actors playing out a script. There was no guarantee that anyone who lived the way they did in the show would get the same kind of positive outcomes they were portrayed to have. On the contrary, such a person would be more likely to lose his or her self-dignity and be miserable.

It was all a deception and she had fallen for it! She who was incredibly bright! How much more would less smart people be duped by such pervasive content from moviedom?

-The end-

  • Irumekhai, Mariam

    This story is thrilling. It appears so real

    • Glad to hear from you, Mariam, and praise God you liked the story.

    • Obiemeka Favour Chukwugozie

      Thank you ma for this story it is an eye opener, whatever you don’t approve of and keep listening to or watching you would eventually approve of it. It sad that sometimes we don’t value good things because of what others say or do.

  • Kenneth Onah

    We sometimes tend to take “hook line and sinker” what we see in movies, which in turn affects our decisions (usually negatively).
    May God save us from this “comedy of errors”.

  • Ezike Winifred udochukwu

    I must say Kayla is such a lucky child, not many people have or enjoy the privileges that she enjoys…and most importantly, being a virgin is not a crime and is nothing to be ashamed of at all,,so I really advise that we don’t make hasty decisions that we will live to regret. I’m glad she had that dream as it could help her have a change of mind. Nice post, ma😍😍😍😍

  • Chinecherem Stephens

    I really lov this story and I think it is timely for Valentine’s day celebration on Friday.
    Lots of young people especially the females now see chastity as something to be ashamed of, all thanks to movies, music and the social media.
    I hope that like Kayla, anyone planning to venture into premarital sexual relationship will have a change of heart.

  • Ugwuanyi Maryann

    This is really a very nice story, this story actually portrays what happens to most girls out there, they make decisions and then after they regret it, my opinion is that in all you do, involve God, any decision you make, let God be involved…… Kayla would have fallen into that hands of temptation if not for her grandmother in the person of an angel, her guardian angel to be precise who brought her out of her doom.
    I pray that God will recover girls out there who have decided to put themselves in doom.
    Thanks aunt Edith for this short story.

  • Ngene Bob Charles

    Lol.. interesting twist…It’s a really nice story which I’m sure a lot of girls can relate to especially girls who weren’t lucky enough to have a grandmum giving warning signs in a dream.

    Virginity is cool…and should be embraced

    Thank you Aunty Edith

  • Ogbonnaya Noble Comfort

    She was deceived because she never believed in herself, she was deceived because she devoted her time in seeing all the parts of the movie without filtering them to select those ones that suits her personality, she was deceived because she was never proud of what she has(her virginity).

    But this not the end of her life, she still has the opportunity to amend her ways and follow the right path to her destination… Thank you ma for this wonderful story

  • Ezeh Chimezie Amos

    Wow….. Kayla’s story just taught me that even a moment without God is dangerous and can cause damages.

  • Amaugo Stephanie Chidinma

    It’s sad how we get highly influenced by what we we allow to pass through our eye and ear gates. Most of the movies we watch on TV are very capable of depicting wrong themes. If only Kayla invested her time properly, she wouldn’t have fallen victim of this deception. Thank you so much Ma

  • Juanita Ikebudu

    Wow! What an incredible piece! This story portrays what goes on in the minds of so many young ladies. Nobody is ready to wait and keep themselves but the repercussion always ends in disaster.

  • Adumike Winifred Munachimso

    It’s a story, but it’s happening in our society now, young people now boast of how sexually active they are,making it look like abstinence is a crime. God help us.

  • Ejiofor Emmanuel

    What a beautifully-written story More power to your elbow, ma. Kayla represents many young girls out there who think that virginity is a curse because their peers say so. Thank God for the dream that brought her back to her senses.

  • Ejiofor Emmanuel

    Also, people should not accept everything that is being played on the television. Most of them are all fantasies!

  • Just a second away from God can be disastrous in a man’s life. devil tries to occupy our hearts with things that can destroy our live so we can forget God. Thanks to God that we still have people around us that are interceeding for us in their secret altars even without our knowledge of it.

  • Bro. Sunday

    awesome write up! more power to your elbows.

  • Biniboi Ehima Blessing

    This is so Great……Indeed, the power of what we see and hear so often can never be over-emphasized, it could make the mighty weak.

  • Okoli Ezinne Juliet

    Wow! Very inspiring story!
    Most girls now see being a virgin a burden which is terribly bad. Kayla was lucky she had a granny that intervened spiritually.
    Nice write-up Ma. More power to ur elbow!

  • Anabude oluchi

    Quite captivating ma! Basically there is nothing wrong with her keeping herself until marriage though she got influenced all because of the show she do watch… and most time they leave one in the world of fantasy.

  • Ossai Chidimma Linda

    We should always be careful, of the kind of movies and programmes we watch and we should not allow ourselves to be pressured by society, we should always do what is right.

  • Anekwe Paschaline

    I think most times in life we have misplaced priorities and that was the case with Kayla. I also wish to advise every youth out there to be careful of what we read and watch because it can go a long way in shaping who we become

  • Ezidimma Odinakachukwu Oluchukwu

    Some people thought that having premarital sex make one to know that she has arrived. I like this post and wishes that every young girl and some parents should read this literary peice in other to advise their children wisely.
    That most people are having sex on Valentine’s day doesn’t make it right…
    Thanks to Kayla who changed her mind.

    Nice literary piece ma

  • This is an eye-opener indeed and very timely as well , considering the fact that sexual purity is now seen as outdated and laughable. Thank you ma for the lessons Iearnt.

  • Hhhhhm, Kayla is giving attention to the wrong thoughts. I hope she keeps to herself cause there are lots of heart breaks especially since she has the wrong idea

  • Abah Okpe Gabriel

    Mehn!!! Awesome storyline ma, to all the youth out there, you don’t do something because others are doing it or become something you are not cut out for because others are, keeping your virginity either as a guy or a girl is your honor and a virtue, as a girl your husband will forever cherish and respect you forever, as for the guys let me just move on, smiles!! More grace ma

  • Orieji Christiana Amarachi

    Wowwwwwhhhhh, nice one. I love this story.Kayla was very lucky to retrace her steps back to the right road with good intentions. Well this story is very vital for young people so we can have a well mannered society where people will have to live a good life and a good legacy for generations unborn. And before I forget; I want to appreciate you ma for such story….you may not know but its helping us to grow. Thank you so much ma.

  • Ugwuanyi Collette Mmesoma

    This story draws attention to young people to be careful about the kind of movies they see. Kayla mindset was poisoned when she found pleasure in the movie ” Young professionals” and believed that was the right way to live but fortunately for her, she had a dream which served as an eye opener for her. The story also draws attention to the importance of prayers; Kayla discovered that she has not prayed for a longtime and this gave reasons for her being carried away by the movie.

  • Ozioko Glory Oluchi

    Many people are victims of movie deception especially when it has to do with the actors or actresses whom they admire. (their role models) Some have gone astray because they tend to learn from their so called role models, for instance, the Maryland, without asking themselves if these people (the role models or stars) are actually who they are being portrayed as, or if they can act or react the same way, if faced with a Similar situation in real life. May God help our generation

  • Añulika Iwoba

    Beautiful story, invaluable message!
    It’s a very real thing, and it’s unfortunate too how the media have advanced depraved ideals and make believes to such an extent that even smart people now question their choices and moral values.
    I’m really glad Kayla realised this in good time.
    Some people aren’t that lucky and only realise how dubious the movies are a little too late.
    Thank you again for the piece

  • Nwoye Chiamaka Favour

    The television affects how we see things both in the positive and the negative light. Hence , it is important that as Christians we ought to know what to watch on the screen . It is also unfortunate that a lot of people believe what they see on the television without questioning just like Kayla .
    Lastly, Prayer cannot be overemphasized as Christians. We ought to pray often to avoid falling prey of the enemy and also to hear from God .

  • Obeta Lillian Chiamaka

    We should be careful the kind of things we watch or read as some are just tools used by the devil to hinder our success. It is better we go through the word of God for better understanding of His word and to walk in His footsteps

  • Richards Orighomisan Mercy

    “The thought of prayer reminded her that it was ages since she had prayed for herself or read her Bible. No wonder she had been sucked in by the Young Professionals. She stopped questioning their world view and accepted their progressive standards as the norm.” The exact reason why Jesus warned against eating the leaven of the Pharisee. And funny enough Christians are not watchful, the devil isn’t sleeping, he master minds programs and shoots to the media and everyone is falling for it. We should endeavor to be selective in the content we absorb. Thanks a lot ma for sharing this, it is indeed needful in times like this when everyone has been quarantined leaving virtually every youth to the media.

  • Oshana Oyaku Endurance

    Just like what the magic bullet theory of mass communication states the media especially TV has a very very pervasive power…. Which sometimes or most times are deceptive

  • Kayla’s weak relationship with her dad saddens me, I believe there is a major role a father plays in the life of his children and I won’t say unfortunately, but he probably had a lot children due to him being a polygamist….
    Well I am a person who loves happy endings, it pleases my heart to know that Kayla came to realize herself on how she had put too much thought into fiction and undue fantasies

  • Eze Blessing Sopuruchukwu

    This story is really educucative. What happened to Kayla in this story, do happen to young people these days. They would want their relationship and family life be like the ones they see in movies forgetting that almost everything we see in movies are not real

  • Eze Chioma Uzoamaka

    This story reminds me of how we the young ones shouldn’t consume all we see on the TV and take it as the gospel. I believe we should all have some sort of discipline and standards so when we are watching such shows, we don’t find ourselves getting consumed by the fictional lives and conforming to the standard depicted in the movie, but actually learning and understanding the major message the movie is trying to send, which is mostly positive. Every other thing are just ingredients to spice up the show.

  • Augusta Ene

    Wow, I recently overhead some girls discussing how overrated virginity is, they can’t wait to get it done. It made me worry about this generation. Thank God for Kayla. God help us all.

  • Kooyon Abigail Aershimana

    Kayla is lucky to have realized it early enough not to fall a victim of the TV show misguides… Most of us aren’t as lucky as her… We easily get so engrossed and carried away with TV shows’ fantasies and boom, it starts rubbing off on us.
    Chukwu nyere anyi bu umu-ntorobia aka (God help us the youths).

  • Emelife Assumpta M

    Wow…. I really enjoyed this story with a very interesting twist. Most young girls today are in Kayla’s shoe, thinking that virginity is a burden without knowing the blessing that follows. Thank God for Kayla’s dream, which made her to know that all that glitters is not gold. This shows that dreams are vital in human lives. Also, we have to be careful with what we read or watch because it affects us psychologically. Our digital media are now filled with high sexual content scenes and not all we see on social media are real…. Above all, we should always be prayerful. Thanks, ma, for this!

  • Oshana Oyaku Endurance

    Most people get really convinced by the media to a large extent, funny enough it’s mostly towards negative things. It takes only a strong mind to engage in watching strong erotic content and not fall for it. I thank God Kayla was snapped out of the illusion she got from ‘The Young Professionals’ series.

  • Nwannah Juliana ngozi

    This society makes virginity look soo outdated.not everyone has a grnadma who gives warnings now. Just be you.I worry for my generation

  • Chioma Peter

    Amazing story. This just shows how easily we(youths especially) fall for make believe. It is very easy for us to believe lies that these shows tell us and sometimes try to adopt their way of life. We forget that in reality, life isn’t that perfect. It takes critical thinking and some sort of spiritual maturity to overcome these vices.

  • Blessing Chris Okeke

    Perfect timing to prevent mistakes common amongst youths. It is well!

  • Ochei Anthony Arinze

    This is a wonderful and educating story. It is also an eye opener especially for those that believed in Nigeria movies and think they are reality, I pity them shaaa.

    Thank you ma’am for this wonderful story, you are blessed.

  • Anabude Oluchi m.

    There is need to guard what we feed our eyes and ears with because it affects the way we think and live our life either positive or negative as we saw with kayla which influenced her mindset on virginity and we should always live our life based on God’s direction inorder not to follow the wrong path in life.

  • Paul-kayode praise chidiebube

    Very strong message, ma! Social media and Hollywood have deceived us so much that we believe what we see and watch is reality. I pray that if we ever fall victim of such, we would snap out of it like Kayla did.

  • Ogbozor Chiamaka Zillah

    Actually to me, I think that Kayla was carried away with what she saw on the screen and for her to regret not having a boyfriend or not being married at her age shouldn’t make her think that the world is a bed of roses for the married ones.
    Also, why would one think that being a virgin at her age is obnoxious? Who does that?
    This story is best for the youths, especially those in the university. Thank you, ma, for these write-ups.

  • Okere Jovita

    Wow…..nice story

  • chah ugochukwu

    Alot of people get influenced by what they see on media be it social or broadcast. They think that everything they see is true failing to understand that people act roles and some people pretend in order to make others see them in a certain light.
    We should be comfortable with ourselves and with our decisions and not base anything at all on any media platform.
    What is wrong is wrong, no matter how much people normalize it. We really shouldn’t follow the crowd. And no matter how old a person is, he/she can still he influenced by the media. Let’s be guided.

  • Nzubechi Victor

    The media can be deceptive.
    We should learn to filter what we see from what reality actually is.

  • Ukwuani OGECHUKWU Cynthia

    This is so nice Ma, we should be careful of the effects the media and movies have on us and the society as some of its contents can make or mar us. We should choose wisely which to copy from the contents of the media.

  • Anokwuru Catherine Ihuoma

    The things we watch or look at leave an indelible mark on our subconscious, and that’s why the bible says to pluck out your eye if it causes you to sin. No one is above sinning, it’s only the grace of God that helps us resist sin so as Christians we need to learn to choose what to watch and what not to.


    Social vices with it’s ills and also peer pressure..we all need his grace..Kayla should be proud of holding on even at that age..we need God providence, wisdom and guidance to pull through .this turbulent world..nice one ma

  • I still wonder why people feel that being a virgin isn’t cool. I’m glad there was a turn around for Kayla.

  • Lilian Chidinma

    An interesting story ma, kayla is lucky not to have been carried away by such movie. There should be no rush to lose one’s virginity. There is time for everything!!!!!!

  • Ikea Joy Chiamaka

    May the Lord help us not to be so progressive that we lose our essence, our value and our chastity in Jesus’ name.

  • Haruna Precious Ikilama

    You’re a product of what you see, read and the people you associate with. This statement rings true in this story and life in general. We must therefore make concerted efforts as individuals to sieve what we engage in and rid ourselves of the “downward pull” or simply we must rid ourselves of unnecessary pressure to engage in actions that are contrary to our morals

  • Okafor Emmanuel chukwunwike

    This is very interesting. A lot of people allow themselves to be fully immersed in such shows thus making them lose track of reality. I believe this short story serves as a wake up call for people that have been deceived by such content

  • People tend to be wooed with what they watch on TV or on other media gadgets. This in turn transforms their critical way of thinking. It is so sad that we no longer think for our self but we prefer to let others think for us. Kayla thought she was treading the wrong path, while she was actually being a good moderate fellow who took her ambitious fate with all seriousness.
    Since the very day she began to watch the young professionals, her mindset changed completely. Do not let anything or anybody cajole you into doing something that is not in reckony with your spirit. Instead pray to God to direct you. Do not be deceived!!!

  • Opara Oluchi Dorathy

    Hmmmmmm I pray the Lord will help us. It’s really a struggle.
    The way young unmarried people brag about their sexual activeness and body counts these days ehnnnn, It can make one lose guard oh but thank God for a story like this.

  • Chidebe uchechukwu cyprian

    Most times in life people are easily infulenced negatively by what they see on movies, hear, peer group infulence and what they consider as classic lifestyle, not minding whether it morally worths it. Kyla could have been a victim of an act that will forever be a nightmare to her memory, she could have ended up in great misery. Thank God for that divine intervention, if not, she could have turned herself into a runs girl in school, thereby sacrificing her dreams and goals on the altar of sexual pleasure and fitting in to other people’s lifestyle, just to belong.

  • Oforgu ifeanyi Augustine

    A very interesting story that got my necks bent while I assimilated the content values. A reality piece questioning life of a child out of parental sight and control.
    I pray for grace!

  • Ikechebelu Ginika Francisca

    This story is such an eye-opener to young people especially. Often times, things we see on TV are not what they really are in real life.

  • Nwosu Victoria Onyinye

    So glad she was rescued from her imaginations.
    In reality, most people going through the same thing do not actually have a voice to bring them back to their senses. They go on with what they have planned out and regret it later on in future.
    This is why it is important to have friends around you with the same vision as well you. To have focus and also to avoid being pressured to do the wrong things.

  • Onah Chidimma Vivian

    Sincerely we get addicted to some things outside reality so much and just get carried away by whatever thing they make people believe. We should learn how to set our own standards and not be too fickle but in all the best person to get directions from is God and not any mortal or any sophisticated show on TV.

  • Ude Awelle

    Its sad that people still believe everything portrayed by the media and allow it to govern their lives. So many people can’t tell what’s wrong from right anymore. A strong faith is what we all need to be able to resist the temptations of the devil, the devil works overtime these days

  • Odeh faith elakeche

    At this our youthful age, we can easily get influenced by so many vices. Being able to control what you see or hear and how you digest all those things is very important. We can get carried away by the trends of the world. A strong relationship and faith in God is all what we need to overcome wordly temptation!

    • Okonkwo Sophia

      Kayla’s life in this story is a reality of most young girls. If only we can see people on social media as normal like us, If only we could choose value, and stop aspiring to belong.
      We only end up losing ourselves in the process. I’m glad at the end of the story she was able take the right step.

  • Ugochi Ajah

    This is very interesting.
    Teenagers have to be careful of what they watch and digest. Movies are never real but a scripted show. Learn to surround yourself with friends that share the same ideas as you. Let God be your guide.

  • Agbo ONYEKACHI Obumneme

    Spiritually speaking, you are a product of what you consume. We are shaped by what we see, think and hear. The mistake she did was to get herself hooked up by those unedifying media contents which would have ruined her life but for the timely intervention. That is largely the problem of youths which has caused a shipwreck of of the destinies of many but I pray God will intervene. We spend time consuming what we are not supposed to consume which brings a lot of harmful consequences. God help us.
    Thank you, Ma. I am blessed by your writings. God bless you.

  • Adebanjo Adenike Rebecca

    Kayla was in a deep thought of adding pleasure to her seriousness with her studies, moreover being 24-year-old virgin. She found herself in a dream world and this retorted her back time the reality through her grandmother, who call her Tinito.

    The programme she watched on TV made her believe she can still be focus and be sex attractive and engaging in it; is not a bad idea but all is a deception!!!

  • Ajah Ugochi Agnes

    “Deception” A story that teaches one to be careful of what one digest. Movies are never real, what happens behind the scene is never real. Teenagers have to be careful of what they watch and digest. Often, people have been led astray by the movies they watch. We need to understand that the movies we watch on TV are never real but a scripted show. We should learn to surround ourselves with friends that share the same faith as us. This is a good story that needs to be recommended to teenagers and even adults in our society.

  • Abiayi Ifeonuchukwu

    Wonderful story…..
    We must be careful what we feed our hearts with and also be sure to not let the lies of the world that is wrapped in the body of truth steer us away from the right path.
    I’m so glad she didn’t give in .
    Thank you ma as always for this wonderful post. God bless you

  • Ajah Ugochi Agnes

    This is a very interesting and educating piece.
    Teenagers are so blinded by what they watch on tv. What we feed our heart makes us who we are and what we produce to society. We need to inculcate the ability of filtering information as both what we hear and see can have great impact on us. We also have to surround ourselves with friends that share the same ideas as us. Let God be your guide.

  • Nwatu Vera Chisom

    Going through the comments and I see MOST people stating the fact that virginity is cool and it’s a lady’s pride, lol, what about the guys is virginity not supposed to be their pride also? Remember, our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, all of us both male and female are expected to use our body to glorify God not just a specific gender.
    May God help us all.

  • Obiogwu Onyinye

    Wowuu….it was really such a rescue and a timely one. Immorality used to be odd and out of place but presently, one who is moral is termed “JJC”, he/she doesn’t know what’s up…just like the voice of her granny, we need the voice of God to return to our senses…

  • Chikwesiri Uka
