How 2016 Was A Good Year Around Here

Hi Fam!

Happy new year!

I have missed being here and missed you all. I hope you all had an awesome holiday. Some of you are still flexing somewhere and I envy you. Bring back chin-chin for us oo.

So erm…first of all, my Christmas was half-lit, half messed up. On the 28th, I got up and couldn’t move. My waist was on fire and I have been bedridden until then. Even as I type this, I still can’t sit up for more than five minutes or so. Awful pain. If you are passing by my house when my husband is trying to get me to stand straight, you’d think he’s beating me. Yes, the pain is so bad I cry like a baby.

But hey, forget all that. God has healed me and I can’t shout. I am fine.

Let’s talk about 2016. For almost everyone in Nigeria, it was an awful year. Emphasis on almost everyone. I know some of you didn’t even feel the crunch. If you didn’t, say ‘aye!’ Well, for the rest of us normal humans, it was tough. But God was faithful.

The year was good for me, in terms of my books. The Fourth Finger soared to heights I never imagined. And not only did it soar, it made my other books sell. This was the year of doors opening for me. Out of the top selling 25 books on Okadabooks, six of my books made it. Of the ten selling books, four of them were there. Of the 6 bestselling authors, I was number 2.

What can I say? God loves me. All my years of hard work have started finally paying off. But you guys know I didn’t do it alone. I wouldn’t have been anything without you. Your shares, likes, comments, emails, and money took me there. How can I thank you enough? You remain part of my growth. I am immensely grateful to you.

I have my weakness, mostly in my health, but it all goes away when I step on this blog and I know you’re on the other end, reading and loving what I write. And guess what…we’ve only just begun!

So, thank you so much. So, so much.

I love you – always.

Please, visit this link and drop a comment. I would appreciate it.

I also want to thank everyone who sent something to my friend, Immaculate, to help care for her ailing mother. She sends her thanks as well. God bless you all.


I will be back with It’s Another Novocaine Saturday  on Saturday. You don’t want to miss it. It will shock you to the bones.

But for today, enjoy The Darker Berry which will come up shortly. All kudos to Tomi. She held the fort when I couldn’t move a muscle. I love her like kilode.

Have a wonderful new year. May God answer all your prayers and make your dreams come true. May he open doors for you as he has done for me. May he protect and provide for you. May you not know any loss or tragedy.

And for all of you searching for your Jide and Honey, James and Amaka, Lexus and Kasiobi, this will be your year! *vibrates under anointing

Can I get an amen?

God bless you all!

    Sally I am so sorry about the health challenges you experienced last year. God heals permanently and in Jesus name, it is done. About your friend, I tried sending something but I doubt it went through. I will still do something for her once I am ‘gallant’.

    Sally you make me believe in what I do. I brag about you to my friends like I have met you, I have successfully initiated some of them to become Moskedapages addicts (hehehehe) and I know this is just the beginning for you.

    Thank you for staying true. Blessing upon you and your family and yes, may my Jide/James locate me this year.

    Come to think of it, between Jide and James who will I choose sef?

  10. Amen………i believe and i receive…falls down yakata under the anointing.
    I pray God perfects everything concerning your health this year in Jesus’ name, amen.
    I also pray you enter into a higher place of prosperity with your books by God’s grace. I love you too much. I choose James by the way. Lots of love.

    • Sally

      Sweet. James is goals. May you have your heart’s desire. Come here and testify o

  11. Awwwww,,sorry sally,can’t imagine what uve been going through,may God bless u with good health and give u the strength to endure what ure going through May he also bless your husband so he’ll continue taking care of you for all of us,,I wish you well Sally,,really can’t wait for Saturday,,so glad to have you back

  18. You are simply amazing, imagine all you are going through health wise and you still have time and zeal to help someone else. 2016 was a good year for you but I pray 2017 be more explosive and amazing that it will blow your mind beyond your imaginations not just career/ blog wise but emotionally, mentally, maritally, family and most importantly health wise . You will enjoy divine health and your path will continually shine brighter and brighter in Jesus name,amen.

  20. I am always wowed by your stories, first time I came here I spent a whole day reading most of the stories here. I just couldn’t stop reading, it was like seeing a light in very dark tunnel. But most importantly, your committment and consistency amazes me. No matter the challenge you encounter, you still find time to write. That is just remarkable and I do not take that for granted, you’re greatly appreciated Sally, moskedapages was one of the highpoints of 2016 for me, I am forever grateful to God for that. And by His stripes you have been healed, strength is made available unto you. I have never said this before but I do love you Sally and looking forward to a flourishing year 2017.
