About Jopas Daughter

I am a carefree WYSI:WYG kind of person. I am married to my Lawyerman, have 3 kids, (one biological, one a present from my late sister and one a present from my husband). I am a full time law student, an orphan and a sister to 4 wonderful sisters. I am extremely trusting and naive. I don’t automatically think people will mess up. I let everyone in. And hope they don’t mess up.

In my spare time, I love to just gist and gist. I also love watching rubbish Yoruba films on Youtube. 12648185_10153951428402774_2009607673_nI used to love reading novels in my previous life  before I started my full time law course. But not anymore. I have been reading a novel called Shantaram for more than a year now and have not been able to finish it. I am a homegirl ( not in a yo homey! way though), I love staying in, with a tub of Ben and Jerry’s, maybe with some biscuits, maybe some Marks and Spencer cheesecake and Chinese food ordered in. I don’t know if you have sensed this but if you have not, I love dessert. Actually, scratch that, I love food with special emphasis on dessert.

I also love to sing although I must admit that not being in a choir has made my voice less delectable. My son, however thinks that my voice is good enough for me to go on X Factor. My son also thinks that if I have not made money by the age of 50, I should go on a TV quiz show. I have a head for trivia and current affairs. But I’m extremely forgetful in my personal life. I do not have the foggiest idea about football but I support Chelsea. Because my son supports them and it is more fun to pit against my husband who, like most Nigerians, supports that club managed by Arsene Wenger, the famous ‘specialist in losing’.

I am a mishmash of genes from my parents. I inherited my mother’s tendency to be fat and my father’s big bones. Had I inherited my mum’s small bones and my dad’s slim build, I would have been bae. But I make do with what I have. In my list of things that I wish for, along with world peace and end to famine, is slim waist for me.

Follow me on my blogging journey and we will get to know each other better. In the words of the late great Jim Reeves, welcome to my world.

    I’m glad my curiosity got the best of me.
    This weight issue has been a struggle for me for me as well. And like you, sister (permit me to call you sister), I grew up with the mentality that food was never to be wasted. In fact, whenever I see people being wasteful about anything at all, I cringe.
    Anyhoo, I have taken down some notes pertaining to this post and I’m hoping to put them into action asap.
    Btw, congrats on your milestones (the kg losses).

  16. I love JOPA’s daughter! By the way, I saw the link to your blog via OLASS Alumni UK Whatsapp chat.

    You are a clean, clear and honest writer.
    I can identify with your story, in fact, we may have to exchange sisters.

    I can see myself in most na, in all you wrote about yourself. ‘Where you’ve been’ ‘food issue’ weight et al.

    Well done sis. “I’ve got my eyes on
    you” that is to say, I will keep reading your blogs.

  17. I can identify with everything I read about you on your blog. In fact, we need to exchange sisters.
    I will fit in perfectly as your sister and one of your biological sisters would fit in to my own clan.

    Well done sis! Clear, clean and open minded writer you are!

    “I’ve got my eyes on you” ‘following your blogs that is to say’

  18. To Almighty God be all glory, JOPA is and was one of the best. When my father passed, JOPA being my uncle was faced with my request for financial assistance… I leave the rest for God to decide, surely give him a Devine seat. May God make him the very angle to watch over everyone of his children and us. The time is coming for the truth to prevail. Bless you, your lawerman and children. With love. Bode Ajai

    1. Uncle Bode, e se sa. Your Uncle was a special person. And so was Agaricus too. May they both continue to rest in peace. Amen.

  19. I must confess, i hate blogs, i think everyone just wants to fit in by having a blog just so they can boast. But dang, I’m in love with this first post already, it is witty, classy, extraordinary and funny. I’m Tobi’s fan so please try to incorporate more words of wisdom from Tobi as you proceed, that will lure more of my traffic antenna to your blog. Way to go sis. Keeping it real since 19-giridigbon.
