Happy Birthday My Brother From Another Mother @Joshuaetim

in #birthday3 years ago

Do you know who's Joshua Etim. If I say he's one of the finest young man on Steemit, I lot of people will argue so I'll just show you the picture cause photos do lie (so, they say)

A lot of people here have expected this post about 18 hours ago because they all know how far Joshua and I have gone in this life.

I'm not here to write the deeds of this man, I'll say them at his wedding which is very soon. But if you are curious to learn a few things about Joshua and his journey on the Steem blockchain, you can read his post here.

Joshua and I have come a long way. I first met him in 2011 when we were attending a Jamb training class with brain Drillers. So, I came across this very intelligent dude in biology class who seems to understand everything about biology and the brain. Well, I didn't care about him till the girl I was having an eye for starting following him to learn more, and then love develop. Joshua, what was her name again, I think it was Peace or something.

Well, I wasn't very jealous, I just picked another girl but decided to be a friend to the dude who took my crush from under my nose. And boom, the bond of brotherhood was developed. We grew up in the next seven years to be the best of pals.

We've studied together, pursue money together, hunted girls together. What exactly have we not done together. And in January when I left the naval exercise camp, I called him and he told me to pack my things and join Steemit. I won't forget the exact words he used

Ikpa, there's this blogging site called spinit (well, that was what first heard before I became to know it's Steemit), it's a site you can blog and you get rewarded. I know you Etiese, you will do very well on the platform. Just check it out.

Ever since then we've gone together to carry out so many projects together on Steemit both offline and online.

  • Two southern kings in the north

  • Preaching Steemit in Nasarawa and sharing books to kids

  • Sharing books to children in my hometown.

  • Flying this Steemjet together

  • Sometimes the flight will involve some beer

So today I celebrate you the man with a big heart. I pray you many more years of extraordinary achievement on this earth. Stay strong, stay alive, stay happy brother


I had to go through this post three times, not because I wanted to, but because within the words above contain other deeper things of life some may not easily see. As beautiful, sweet and humorous the above story is, beneath it is where pain, love, trust, sleepless nights, triumphs, excellence, hardwork, sacrifice, success, struggles, understanding, forgiveness, joy, endurance, commitment and purpose has survived.

We've studied together, pursue money together, hunted girls together. What exactly have we not done together?

I was just laughing to tears when you talked about my wedding day, hahaha, how about the house I'm planning to buy for you at Ikoyi with your future wife. Well, we'll put a $1000 dollars bet on who will get married first, if I get married first before you, you'll pay me $1000. If you do before me, I'll pay you $1000. Deal?

You were right when you jokingly told @jeline that you'll take down 10 men on my behalf and you've always been there. Thank you so much brotherly, you've not only been a blessing to my life, you've been an inspiration.

And that reminds me, yes, you got the name correct. Her name is Peace, she ended up finishing from a private university in Ondo state where she studied Microbiology.

Thank you for this amazing piece, and thank you for being a brother. You know I don't love you, I'm actually looking for a word stronger than love.

Well, we'll put a $1000 dollars bet on who will get married first, if I get married first before you, you'll pay me $1000. If you do before me, I'll pay you $1000. Deal?

I'll comment on this first. I think I'll start looking for a girl pretty soon if someone is putting together a 1000sb dollar as a wedding gift for us.

You know I don't love you, I'm actually looking for a word stronger than love.

May the Lord be on our side and our friendship shall be a blessing to the world.

See as I read every line with very apt attention like the next words you'll say could sabotage my thinking faculties....

True Joshua is a fine young man....
But I must say, he has an even finer heart which has brought him so many favours.
On this special day of his birthday, I join you in celebrating a rare gem in the person of @joshuaetim.

I didn't know you know him that much....
Hmm, you guys have really done a lot together....
