The Kpokpo Gari And Kpakpakpa Connection!

Most times the posts that finally make it here have some deep meaning and profound truth about them. This one doesn’t, not really. It’s just two videos that have cracked me up worse than harmattan ever did! You most likely have seen both already, but I still share them confidently because they’re funny enough to merit a hundredth watch.

The first is a showdown between a rich kid and a poor kid. At the end of the day, who walks away crying? Was it really about melody and gadgets and shoe color? Lol, here see;

Then there’s this one, which started going viral last week. It’s a simpleton’s perspective on our economy. I think this guy could stab English and he’d be right to. English failed to give him a word expressive enough to communicate his job. That’s a pretty frustrating place to be in. imagine opening a linked-in account and feeling stranded at the ‘Job title’ section and kpakpakpa was the phrase you had to create to compensate for English’s shortsightedness. Here, let’s watch English pay for her crime.

You know I cant help but wonder if it’s possible that the ‘doss’ guy who won over the rich kid could possibly be….could possibly be one of kpakpakpa’s five kids. I mean think about it. if dad does kpakpakpa and brings in small money, wouldn’t that be a fitting premis for “new money e don come, I take give mary to cook gari, mary cook gari e not don….” Huh? Huh?

And that Joy FM reporter, I could sense the man on the verge of asking “Why do you want to difficult the whole issues?”You know, at the end of it all, there’s no denying that times are challenging. I think most of us laugh because we cant cry. What should we do? Stop borning? Heck no! we are ‘born tens’ and ‘born nines’.

Personally, I’m very affected by things. My system takes things too seriously. Like my heart, it will weigh so heavily on hearing about a $2 million rot in some government agency. I wont be able to get over it and eventually my entire day will be messed up. So I’m very cautious of the news and conversations I expose myself to. I don’t listen to bad news, but when they force their way into my ears, I need to refer to reassuring facts only the Bible gives.

I am in this world, but not of it. A thousand may fall to my right and 10,000 to my left, but none shall come nigh my dwelling. Everything works together for my good. The steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord. He would not cause my feet to stumble against a rock. He is able to keep me from falling. He knows the end from the beginning. For my present afflictions are nothing compared to the bliss that awaits. He will cause the wealth of the wicked to be transferred to the righteous. He who has started a good thing in my life will bring it to a wonderful and an expected end….etc!

That is my kpakpakpa movement. I remind God of his promises, of His honor at stake, then I move something to move something, then kpakpakpa my hope returns, my faith is strengthened, and I have vim to keep moving on. I think the best way to keep afloat, keep hopes, businesses and dreams alive in this economy is to draw strength from a much higher source. It’s the only, only, only way to elaborate yourself and hmmnn (swallow saliva)…adjust certain things together.

    The systems of this world will definitely fail and crumble but we stand on solid rock that cannot be moved. We live in God’s economy, when others say there is a casting down we shall say there’s a lifting up. Thanks my dear friend for this word…..seriously……… take a bow!!!

    but true. you’re so right. everything works together for our good. and He’ll surely bring us to an expected end. and He’s certainly not brought us this far for nothing. so like you, God’s promises are my kpakpakpa movement.
