    Why I pray before going on Social media

    Nollywood actress Chika Ike has revealed that she normally says her prayers before visiting popular social media platform , Instagram.

    Ike , who recently became an author , told Sunday Scoop that she was aware the negativity spreading all over the Internet , especially on Instagram, had the ability to spoil one ’ s day .

    “ Instagram can spoil your day if you are not careful or strong . There is so much negativity in the world right now ; so , you have to guard yourself with prayers. There is a need to start your day in a positive light and when you pray, your day has started positively , ”

    she added .
    Speaking on why she wrote a book on her failed marriage and father ’ s rejection, she said God deliberately made everyone to go through certain things in life so that one could learn and share .

    The actress said , “ If you go through a lot of things and you are not willing to share , you ’ ve not achieved the purpose of God for your life . People will always have their perspectives about life and they talk about the dead too .

    I have gone through the phase of being scared or afraid of being judged by the public .

    I am learning every day to focus on myself ; I cannot control anyone ’ s thoughts . I was rejected from birth by my father and I addressed it in my new book . ”

    In the said book, Ike also stressed the role her mother played in her life before she died . “ Before my mother died three years ago , I had a discussion with her in the hospital .

    She wanted to know when I would publish my book ; she was once an author too. I told her I was scared and she told me to tell the truth, ” said the actress .

    “ When she died , I lost myself for two years and I did a lot of therapy to get myself together .

    I was so attached to my mother and I didn ’ t want to disappoint her because she gave me her last word . My mother ’ s death made me understand that life is too short and we don ’ t have much time on earth .

    We don ’ t know how tomorrow would be ; so , the earlier we started achieving our set goals, the better for us . It took me seven years to write my book because I was afraid to share some private things about me at some point . ”
