My name is Amorous Polly and a threesome changed my life. I didn’t plan on fucking two people the first time it happened. I was supposed to meet a blonde for an hour of drinks and small talk. Then I would head over to dinner with friends. Instead, I walked into her living room and…

I come to you under no pretense of peace, so let me just get straight into this rant that you unknowingly requested for. Yes, I read souls in my spare time. Today, I’m coming for YOU. Yes you (abi na us) religious folk, who lack control, not to mention human decency (others will argue logic)…

The greatest benefit of globalization is that it can shift your perspective on the world in both subtle and profound ways. The first time I remember meeting a Nigerian person who wasn’t Yoruba, was when I moved to New York City. I was the new kid in Ms. Liburd’s second grade class and so, naturally,…

America is a very special place. At this point in time, it is probably the result of a western civilization either approaching demise or just on steroids.

This post follows a previous one published here. As I remembered my mother-in-law’s scary demands and that of my in-laws. Thoughts of the date which is about two months from today, made my heart beat louder and faster than a mega talking drum. I remembered the comments of one of my uncles made in an attempt to…

It’s a Thursday evening and I’m rounding the day up by trying to catch up with the latest posts on TNC. This particular true life story titled “My Culture Cost Me The Love Of My Life” catches my eye and inspires me to share the current quagmire I’m stuck in. This is also a true…

Recently, I was browsing the internet, when I stumbled upon a disturbing headline caption referencing a recent scandal about a twenty-eight year old Sudanese woman facing the death penalty for marrying a practising Christian. As, I am certain anyone who bothers to keep themselves updated on the happenings around the world has probably already come…

It’s not in our culture, possibly one of the most popular phrases championed by Africans in our bid to promote conservative views. Have you noticed how no conservative view is ever rejected on the grounds that it is not African? But speak of liberal views like gay rights, and more disturbingly, women’s rights, which should…

I am a Nigerian. Born here, lived most of my life here and I intend to live a greater part of my years to come here. I am a patriotic Nigerian. I love this nation, I believe in this nation but I will not die for this nation. So maybe I’m not so patriotic after…
