I thought I was singled out but just found out as I read @thekitchenmuse post that there are still some people out there who find nothing else to do than criticize other people who are trying hard and putting themselves out there and adding value to other people’s lives (swipe left to see comments).
This okra video is my most viewed video on YouTube (check out my channel Shapeupafrican) and I must say my favorite okra recipe because it’s easy to cook, super delicious and healthy too. I used where a few ingredients and had myself a very flavorful okra soup that my family enjoyed. .
I have noticed that you can NEVER please everybody EVER and that’s ok. That is why I have chosen my lane, I do my thing. I am not a crowd pleaser. .
I love to cook, I love being in the kitchen. It’s my Zeelicious laboratory. I have given myself permission to cook as I please, using ingredients I chose so long as my tastebuds will be singing to the melody of my spice mélange to the pleasure of my palettes. So I do me boo! .
I find it funny how people sit behind a screen and complain about food they have not tasted based on how it is cooked and what they see on a plate. Food is not static. Cuisines evolve! In my kitchen, there are no rules. If I chose to cook without pepper, maggi and palm oil, that’s on me. .
Do some of you even know what it takes to shot a video, edit and post it? Kai! .
One thing I have also learned being on social media is people will hurt you from a place of hurt or ignorance or whatever but I chose to respond in love always. .
Plus, haters to me are like cow dung, I need you guys to grow and achieve higher heights. So sh*t on me all you want, I’m a seed and seeds need sh*t aka. fertilizer to grow. .
There are those who will genuinely appreciate your EFFORT and to you guys, I say thank guys so much. Your comments, likes and shares encourage me a lot.
