Life has been rather slow recently. The world seems to be in an unending rollercoaster, and things have truly evolved. One thing we can all agree on is the fact that, when this Coronavirus pandemic ends, our lives will change. What we pray for and seek is that this change will be good for us. Currently, it feels like, I just want…Continue Reading
My phone says it’s 12:14 am on the 25th of January 2020. Tears are streaming down my face. I have tried to stop them, but the liquid keeps pouring. Everything else seems to dwindle by the minute. I still feel like a fraud, especially in my job. I freeze. A lot. I still don’t think I can do this. By…Continue Reading
2019 was one hell of a year- figuratively and literally. I’ve tried to write this several times and when I finally did, the entire post was erased somehow. It took my whole being to write it in the first place, so this was followed by a lot of crying, frustration and asking myself whether I should give up or nah?…Continue Reading

How Intelligence Kills is a brilliant exposition into the Nigerian dynamic. It brings to realization several thought-worthy issues and is a 5-star read.
Here’s an in-depth review for you!
A recent video posted by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (CNA) shows off her dance skills. You never thought you’d see the day, right? It was five seconds long but served as the final assurance that the Half Of A Yellow Sun author is my twin. I mean, she can’t dance to save her life, just like me! The first time I came across…Continue Reading
It is one week to the General Elections in Nigeria and I write all words here with anger- not righteous anger- just plain old pure, Nigerian anger. The kind that makes you surprised that you’re angry. The kind that leads you to shout at the bus conductor who expects you to let your 20 Naira change go although he would…Continue Reading
Life sucks and here’s why sometimes you need to suck too. You really need this!
