#WithChude Valentine special with Ada Jesus

Actor and Content Creator, Chonoso Ukah popularly known as Ada Jesus or Nons Miraj sits #WithChude to discuss dealing with sexual harassment in Nollywood, losing her dad and the recent scandal.

Chinonso narrated her experience when a popular blog posted that she had a threesome, with her best friend and a politician.

“I was shaking because I didn’t know how to explain to my mother that this thing is not true. How do you explain to people that you did not do it because they were not there with you.

“If you Google our name now, you see will a poster of I, Ashmusy and the man in the middle. You understand I want to travel out of the country; do not be thinking this one is ashawo. It was annoying. People were advising me not to comment on that blog. But because I know I am so innocent, I went to their DM and told them ‘God will punish you for this thing, you will die’. Later on, I summoned courage, “Nonso, you didn’t do this thing”. I don’t know the blogger, but whoever is behind it, ‘bring proof!’

“So, when the person wanted to move to new gist, all my friends were like ‘bring proof oh’, ‘don’t go to another gist, because you cannot accuse me just to give your blog a little pop’. Maybe the blog was already dying, and they had to now bring something that would make it trend again. I didn’t like the idea of that, but then again good or bad publicity, it’s all publicity. I have not seen him as a fan, like how my friend said she saw him and recorded him. If I see him, I’ll go and hold his leg. I have never met this man before, that is the honest truth.

Awaiting Trial private screening holds in Abuja

Award-winning documentary, Awaiting Trial screens at Effective Altruism Nigeria workshop.

Awaiting Trial is a documentary that explores both the #EndSARS protests and the ‘deeper illness’ they point to – the phenomenon in Nigeria’s communal justice system called ‘awaiting trial’ where people are arrested and detained indefinitely without charge.  After a successful 5-day digital screening on YouTube, the documentary recently held a private screening at the Effective Altruism event in Nigeria.

Effective altruism (EA) is a philosophy and social movement about combining empathy, reason and evidence.

On November 19, 2022, Effective Altruism Nigeria held a nationwide workshop where Awaiting Trial was screened.

The screening was held at Hampton Apartment, Maitama, Abuja, and was attended by people from every geopolitical zone in Nigeria.

JOY INC: Revolutionising mental health space in Africa!

Mental health has never been of much significance in Africa. The average African doesn’t know their mental space can be protected or what it entails to ensure such protection. Luckily, companies like Joy Inc, who seek to transform the culture of mental health in Africa, are achieving milestones in bringing mental health awareness.

Revolutionising mental health space in Africa

Joy Inc is a teaching and media company that utilises research and evidence on human flourishing and positive emotions, to improve mental and emotional health in Africa. The company seeks to transform Africa into a mental, emotional, and spiritual safe place.

Since its inception, the company has played a major role in revolutionising mental health in Africa. They have managed to equip Africans, communities, organisations and nations with the tools, skills and behaviours to build resilience, transcend adversity, solve problems and find joy.

This leading company has recognised the importance of good mental health in building flourishing youth who can change the future of Africa; hence they have come up with a sustainable plan. They are to be focused on building a new generation of Africans who wield the power of community and positive peer pressure to drive growth on the five key pillars of subjective well-being.

Built with a seven year vision – 2018 – 2025, Joy Inc has made massive efforts to bring joy and happiness into Africa. This innovative organisation has created programs like masterclasses targeted at helping businesses build mentally safe workspaces for their employees. The company also hosted 18 editions of its Joy masterclasses in 6 cities, across 4 continents.

In addition to their achievements, the company launched the Joy Hub, a program meant to provide emotional and mental help to youth struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma and similar things. People are taught to answer five important questions guaranteed to give them the necessary freedom into joy –

  • What am I really feeling?
  • What am I really thinking?
  • What am I really doing?
  • What is the (unarguable) reality?
  • What will I do next?

Joy Inc believes the answer to these questions creates a shift in consciousness capable of bringing people into joy.

With about ten visions focused on spiritual health, poverty, acceptance, trust, welfare, hygge, freedom, job and education, the company plans to create a world where everyone knows well being is just as important as wealth. If there’s anyone making the right waves towards revolutionising mental health in Africa, it’s Joy Inc.
