About Me

Hello,

I am Oluseye Igbafe. Welcome to my Blog!



Musings of a 360° lady is where I share the musings of my overactive mind with a dash of wit and humor; my place to churn out my views on Issues of Faith, Love, Life, Relationship and Parenting. 


I am an aspiring writer who loves to explore topical issues from unconventional points of view. 

I also tend to over-analyze issues so rather than talk my friends to death, I decided it’s better to pen down my thoughts and share them with you. 

My aim is to inspire, teach, motivate, amuse and encourage my readers

Why 360°? Well, it represents the multi dimension of my personality and views as a Wife, Mother, Daughter, Pastor's Wife, Working Woman, Friend, Professional, Boss and Subordinate.

Aside being a blogger, I am a Christian, a wife and a mother of two. I have a day job as a HR/ Learning and Development Specialist.
Thank you for stopping by, enjoy my musings and remember to drop your comments.

  1. Glad to have found your blog. Where do you live, if I may ask. Maybe it is somewhere in your blog, but I did not find it today. New to it and all.
    Christ was a radical feminist, chosing women to be first witnesses to the most important event in human history.
    As the mother of 3 grown sons and 1 grown daughter I can tell you men have the edge, but only because the first judges in our lives is our mothers and we women misjudge our daughters because we misjudge ourselves. Or we might put our darling daughters on a pedestal that is unreal.
    Most likely we are surprised as mothers when we get old and see how brilliant and capable our daughters are! My point is, we should not be surprised. Why are we?

    1. Thanks for your lovely comment. Hope you enjoyed my posts.I currently live in Nigeria.

      You are very right, Jesus Christ never discriminated against women, I actually feel a post rising up in me about this. lol.

      I totally agree with you that we women sometimes unknowingly place a limitation on ourselves, other women and even our daughters. But there is no better time than now to stop this and create equal opportunities for the girl child especially in Africa.

      Thanks for stopping by and please do so often.
      All the Best.

    2. Hi,
      I bumped into your blog while going through Facebook. The plan was to read just that article. That was an hour ago.
      I just want to say that I celebrate you and your writing; the fact that you know who you are (especially as a Christian) and aren't ashamed of it, and the fact that you talk about the seemingly insignificant things that people have forgotten or have taken for granted but are actually slowly but steadily destroying lives and sometimes the moral fabric of the society.
      I also want to add here that if perchance you feel like you aren't making any impact and therefore want to stop writing for any reason at all, please understand that it is a lie from the pit of hell! Because someone is going to bump into your blog again. And they'll plan to read just one article. And then an hour will go by.
      Shalom!

Sexualization of Children

As I waited in the departure lounge of a local airport, I noticed there were many children about but it was understandable since it was summer holiday. One other thing I noticed was the way most of the children were dressed. Most of them, especially the girls, were dressed in bum shorts, halter necks, cut off jeans, etc. The clothes in themselves weren't the issue per se; it was the overall look of the children that had me bothered. That was definitely not the first time I noticed it. 
A few months before, I had taken my kids to a birthday party and found myself in what could easily have been a night club for kids. Scanty clothing such as tight or very short clothes, bum shorts, long weaves, etc, seemed to be the dress code. I noticed my daughter glancing around her, probably wondering, "What in God's world are these other children wearing?" Or something like that. 


Not long after, the kids were called out to dance to the hit songs of the season - these songs in my opi…

Parents Gone Wild: Bleaching Children's Skin

by Oluseye Igbafe


I heard about this for the first time a year ago at the birthday party of a friend's child. One of our mutual friends walked up to me and after pleasantries, said to me:

“Sis, your daughter is very pretty oh.” “Thanks”, I replied.
"What cream do you use for her?” She asked
"Cream?! I use Johnson Baby lotion."
"Only?! What do you use to bring out her colour?” she persisted.
“I don’t really understand you,” I answered her, “What colour am I bringing out?”
"No oh, you should use something that will bring out her colour. Don’t you know she will be prettier (sic) if she has fair skin?”
I cringed inwardly. All the while, I had struggled to believe she couldn’t possibly be saying what I thought she was saying. “You mean I should start bleaching her skin? At what age and why would I do such a crazy thing?! It’s not necessary my dear,” I answered her firmly. "It is oh my big sister. Especially for a girl but not bleaching; haba, not even toning! It…

Hiring an Underaged House-help is Child Abuse!

by Oluseye Igbafe

The issue of underage house helps is one that really upsets and offends my sensibilities, the rationale behind it is simply baffling. How can a couple be comfortable employing a child to raise their own children? Of course, it is often not termed as employment but done under the guise of helping, training or whatever title but looking at the role and responsibilities laid on these maids, it is simply child abuse, child labour, child endangerment, and even modern day slavery in its purest form. 

I thought I had seen or heard the worst of underage house help stories till a woman wrote on social media last week that she thinks her 5 year old house help is possessed. I just had to comment that she is the one that is likely possessed; anyone who can use a 5year old as a house help is not only possessed but deranged. A 5 years old?


So why do women employ underaged children as maids? I mean how can you employ a child of 5, 8 or even 12 years old as a maid? A child to pick and …
