“Dele…Dele…Oladele?” Supo called. The brows on his forehead furrowed as he looked at her with exasperation. “Yes?” Oladele jerked out of her reverie. She hadn’t realized she had been staring into space for the past five minutes. Supo sighed. He held her hand tighter. Dele winced at the pain of his grip; he had been…

So I eventually watched the #hurtbae video (yes, I was living under a work when it all happened, but better late than never) and I must have watched it five times back to back because in those few minutes, those two people talked about a lifetime of hurt, of miscommunication, of doubt, of a lack…

“Have you written your toast?” Anna asked as we turned into the avenue bordered on both sides by dead fallen leaves occasionally being disturbed by the freezing cold December evening breeze. “No.” I admitted. “Not yet.” I replied as I took in the brown-gold landscape, against the sunset to our right. It was a very…

Most of the time I just sit here in my corner and think about life options and everything that is happening around me. I can’t help but ask this question. Dating at times feels like a total waste of time especially if there is no direction. Fun is never enough and love is never enough…

My own kind of love is like that of a tree. A tree which grows tall, and with shades thinking of how to shelter people and bright eyed things. The Tree that measures its progress by the amount of smile and safety it has offered people and bright eyed things. A Tree whose thick leafy…

Love was a mere fantasy until she came along.  Just like you, she was a fresher. It all started from a simple “hello” in class. Soon mobile numbers were exchanged, which lead to a journey of incessant chats and calls. You were in love, and your lover was your all. The feeling couldn’t have been…

The truth about cheating is that we all want to do it, on some level, almost all the time, and we don’t cheat by deciding not to, every single day. Our minds have a really annoying way of constantly wondering whether there might be a better deal out there for us. And there are much more serious…

This thing about Love is just something else. Someone that was or used to be your everything, one day becomes what you don’t want to see anymore. Someone that was or used to be your daily delight, becomes the darkness your morning doesn’t want to see. Someone you can’t go a day without talking to…

I snooped through my male friend’s phone one day and I laughed when I saw his apps. You don’t want to know what the app is ‘how to woo a girl’. Jeez! I will never understand women. Too complex, too twisted, too picky, too tricky, sometimes confused and it’s so funny I’m a member of…

He smells like sex and cheap Hausa perfume. I know instantly where he has been. He kisses me hurriedly and then flops on the bed, tucking his hands underneath his head and letting out a yawn as he closes his eyes to go to sleep. Are you already going to bed? I ask, even though…

How selfless can parents be? I have seen many Nigerian women hit the road before the crack of dawn, stuffed in jalopy vehicles travelling long distances, to purchase loads of goods for sale. Some parents have plied every trade you can think of. Despite the discomfort, hazards and risks, they do this to spare the…

So, “sex without feelings” is this new skill that all the cool kids have acquired. We used to think it was impossible but with the right tactics and soft skills, it can actually be achieved. I threw the issue to a couple of my friends and my experts are divided in their thoughts. Some say,…

“It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.” – Unknown I was wide awake, but I needed to get back to bed. I needed to sleep but I couldn’t. In fact, I didn’t want to. So I kept turning in my bed which now seemed to be dragging me out of it. It used…
