BMBG[SEASON THREE.EPISODE 6]-Africa Needs Help
I am sure we are all aware of what is currently going on in Africa and has been going on for many years. we as the youths in Africa and the youths in diaspora can no longer turn a blind eye to what the government of these countries are doing to the innocent people and less fortunate.
Open discussions need to be happening everyday, protests need to be taken place and accountability needs to be held by the governments who are trying to run Africa to the ground.
In this episode, we WERE actually suppose to discuss Nigeria and Congo as a hot topic but BECAUSE of how heartbreaking and close to home this topic was for all three of us, we ended turning it into our main discussion. This episode we touch on #endsars in Nigeria and the #silentholocaust happening in Congo. we are fully aware that there are so many of countries in Africa and outside the African continent that are facing inequality and brutality but we were so limited on time
We hope this episode allows you to learn more about what going on in Africa and encourage you to the support in however many ways you can.
BMBG[SEASON THREE.EPISODE 5]-All Things Marriage
In this episode, we speak all things marriage. We discuss what marriage means to us, the pressure of society and completing half of your deen.
Now we all know marriage isn’t a walk through the park and we should all strive to be the best we can, but we don’t think marriage should be your sole identity,marriage shouldn’t be the only thing you strive more. Islam is more than marriage and we need to learn to love Allah by ourselves before looking for a spouse to do that for us.
We hope you enjoy this topic and find it beneficial whether you are married, about to get married or looking for marriage.

BMBG[SEASON THREE.EPISODE 4]-Struggles Of Loving Thyself
In this episode, we talk about the struggles of loving thyself, we actually unfold many reasons as to why we struggle with something that seems mandatory in everyones life. This episode will really make you realise that only you are responsible for making yourself happy and falling in love with yourself. Most importantly in this episode, I think we discover how much of an ongoing journey self love is and has no destination at any point in life. We as humans change everyday, including what we may may to achieve in life internally and externally!
We hope you can take tips from us on how to break down what’s stopping you from fulfilling your self love to the full extent!
BMBG[SEASON THREE.EPISODE 3 ]- Friendship Vs Companionship
In this episode we start off with a discussion about Tory Lanez and Meg the Stallion and about how black women are ALWAYS torn down day in and day out even when we try to protect our black men who only go round and disrespect us. We are tired! How is she even being called a snitch after protecting Tory from the very start?? Make it make sense please.
We then move on to the difference between friendship and companionship, the struggles of finding a balance with our identities, finding the right friends or company that understand both our culture and faith. This conversation made us realise we have had a lot of struggles growing up as Black Muslim women in a western society
We then touch on a very sensitive topic which is about embracing ones physical features and how this can be made possible. Again, it’s not as straightforward as it may seem, we realised it’s more than just standing in the mirror and telling yourself “ your beautiful”.
We touch on other things too that are really beneficial but you’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out!
Please let us know your thoughts and if any of the topics stood out to you. Hope you enjoy.
