So no doubt you have heard the legend about the dragon Mother-In-Law and mistreated Daughter-In-Law! It is always the same story – mum has a son, suffers and toils over him – he is her baby – she’s his hero! No one can come between them – not even…..wait for it….. the beautiful, new wife…

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…

I was sitting in the house the other day thinking of a good friend of mine who sent her husband to the market to buy a cabbage on a Saturday afternoon. The thing that made me laugh was that the husband left and came back the next morning with the cabbage. You might wonder what…

Shoot the messenger. But in this case, she’s bullet-proof. I’ve heard so much talk about why it’s not right or not ideal to move in with someone and be sleeping with them, cooking and eating with them, playing ‘house’ with them and basically doing ‘marital’ stuff with them before getting married.

Mr Nice Guy

The phone rang. Dammie picked up. “Hello?” “Hi baby, I’m outside”, replied the voice from the other end of the line. “Tell him you are coming out”, I whispered. She did like I said and hung up. I told her to just play along as this was going to be a great story. Dammie had…

I was going through my TNC dashboard one early morning when I saw one of those banner ads at the top of the screen. It read ‘Find a foreign husband’. L’aaaro kutu kutu!  It’s not the first time I’ve seen a banner ad claiming to foster relationships, or talking about a dating site on this…

Score: I Loved Her First || Heartland For the first time in a long time, I cried. I wish I could tell you exactly why my eyes leaked but I can’t tell you what I don’t know. I guess no matter how many books one reads or movies watched, some things can never be truly…

We’ve got a really tough question before us today. I think it’s similar to the question a chic asks after she dates a guy for years and they break up only for the same guy to propose to another chic in a matter of months. I’ve taken a shot at answering the latter and now, we are…

My phone rang. It was Caro. First there was a squeal, so loud I thought my ears would burst, then: “He proposed!! He proposed!!! Ugo, Dennis proposed yesterday! If you see the size of this rock ehn, my dear you’ll just faint!”  After my ears had adjusted to normal, I finally could make out what…

“If I ever got around to having a wedding, I want this one.” That was my immediate thought. From my vantage spot, I could see that the guests present numbered less than one hundred and seemed to only include young people. I was already salivating at the dancing that would ensue at the end of…

Nma looked at herself naked in the mirror. And the tears choked her as her eyes took each part of her body bit by bit and assessed it. Her tummy protruded with the baby inside of her and for a moment the shape looked a bit awkward as the baby moved. This caused her to…
