How Mothers Had So Much Fun At Mothers Pampering Day Event Organised By Aunty Bimbo





It was a totally amazing, relaxing and refreshing time at the first Mothers Pampering Day event organised by Aunty Bimbo this year.



Mothers from different works of life came together to nurture themselves emotionally, spiritually, physically and socially all in our Arabian Nite theme setting complete with throw pillows and plush carpets.












It was a time to ask those questions on most mothers' minds about their spouse, child and family generally as there were experts on hand to offer various coaching sessions.








Therapy was also not left out as Play and Sex Therapist, Zuriel Olowe took us all down memory lane to assuage our fears using toys as a focal point.




We also had a deep jazz music serenading session by Gospel Saxophonist extraordinare, Wale Sax who kept belting out tunes that kept all the mothers bumping along to the music.


The therapy was so intense that some mothers literally broke down in tears when they realised what had been hindering them from achieving what they always wanted.


There was also a session on how to balance work life and family and we had Balance Coach, Bella Abidakun around to help us.





Issues of marriage and prayer was also not left out as Marriage Mindset Coach, Bridget Elesin gave mothers insights on how to improve their marriages in every way possible both physically and also spiritually. 





We also had a deep discussion on sex and trust me, it was very deep with most mothers learning more ways to please their partners and how to stop using sex as a negotiation tool but rather as a means to show love to their spouses.





There was also a manicure and pedicure session to help mothers unwind as their feet were being attended to as Mothers Pampering Day is basically about unwinding on all fronts.



That's not all, money was also discussed as Home Finance Coach, Ogechi Njoku-Alabi, a former banker of 14 years, mum of 6 children who has been married for 17 years and counting came to share her secrets with us!












There was so much to eat and drink Buffet Style with our menu of over 6 finger foods including shawarma, chicken and chips, plantain & shrimps, corndog, fruit kebab, small chops, chapman, icecream and velvet cake. 










Oops! I forgot to mention that there was also a giveaway  of over 24 kitchen utensils including mortar and pestle courtesy of Hampies Essentials!









This exclusive Mothers Pampering Day event was held at Funtasticaland Family Entertainment Center, Ilupeju and feedback continues to roll in on how many homes have improved in all ramifications since the event which took place on the 20th of May 2017.



Another Mothers Pampering Day event will come up before the end of this year so if you missed this one, not to worry just watch this space.

Bolaji Gbadamosi, A Guest On Family Funtime Show Helps Unravel Child Abuse



In line with April being Child Abuse Awareness month, just like I promised, every edition of the show this month we will feature a Child Abuse Advocate who will join us on the show to educate us more.


We had the pleasure of having Bolaji Gbadamosi popularly known as Msz Beejay, the founder of Expression 'U' Initiative and Thoughts-in-motion Africa which serve as platforms where she helps sensitize and empower children about their sexuality. 

She also has a studio and family center that provides therapeutic healing for children that have been abused using motion movement including dance and music to help them heal.



Mz Beejay was able to give us highlights on how to help children who have been abused by offering them therapy. She explained how emotional abuse and neglect of children can also have a huge impact in affecting their lives thereby leading to broken adults.



A major point she left us with is the fact that as parents you need to be very observant about your child because there are always signs. She also emphasized the need to be careful with words you use with your child and also about your child.

The issue of neglect as a major form of Child Abuse was also raised and she mentioned how not spending quality time with your child can lead to emotional problems for them and make them more vulnerable to predators who show them attention.

This is a clarion call for us to  pick up the slack wherever we might be wanting as parents and to continue to be amazing conditioning systems for our children.

Be sure to tune in to Kissfm Lagos 98.9 every Saturday from 11am to 12 Noon for a fresh edition of Family Funtime With Aunty Bimbo, the show that empowers and transforms families through fun and learning.

Find Out How 12 Children Visited The Studio On Family Funtime Show With Aunty Bimbo



Its an open secret that the theme of every edition of the Family Funtime Show is FUN and LEARNING and we go to great lengths to ensure both parents and children enjoy it.


12 children joined me on the show few weeks ago and they had the time of their lives expressing themselves and learning a thing or two.


We discussed money and if the children really knew the value of money and the people on the different Naira denominations. Our Know Your World Segment was on Murtala Muhammed, a great historical figure and the face on our N20 ( twenty naira note). Are you aware that Murtala Mohammed said Lagos was too dirty and should not be the Federal Capital Territory?


We had other different fun activities including dancing on the show and rounded it up with a Tongue Twister Session and it was hilarious getting the children and their mums try to say "Clumsy Clowns Crushed The King's Crown" Lol! Try saying it 3 times without making a mistake!!




In all, I bless God for another successful show and look forward to next week Saturday again on Family Funtime With Aunty Bimbo (FFAB) on KissFm Lagos 98.9 from 11am to 12 noon.

Perks Of Being An Independent Producer On Radio


The ability to be on different radio stations talking about Family life, Parents & Children, is definitely one of the perks of being an Independent Producer not locked down to one radio station.


A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of being invited on Bella Akwe Abidakun 's radio show, Balance With Bella on Pinnacle Health Radio.




I was invited to speak on the "Importance of Play In A Child's Physical & Mental Development". It was really an enlightening session and according to the producer, there was a lot of positive feedback on their social media platforms.


Do you know that " Play" is an essential part of every child's development? It is so important that it is also recognised and enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).  Article 31 of the UNCRC states that the child has the right to play and to join in other recreational activities.


The UN goes further to state that play and recreation are essential to the health and well-being of children as it promotes the development of creativity, imagination, self-confidence, self efficacy, as well as physical, social,cognitive and emotional strength and skills in them.

So parents, PLEASE ALLOW YOUR CHILD PLAY because like they say ALL WORK & NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY!!
