Dear Lord, It’s your daughter. I’m here again, asking for the same thing my mother asks for every night – a husband. Not for herself o. For me. She can’t be greedy. She already has my father. But today, I’m not asking that he be rich, or handsome, though those would be nice additions, especially…

This is a lengthy read so I apologize in advance. The thing about closure is that you don’t always get it and that’s okay. But if you do get it…I really don’t have the words to explain it. It’s just…closure; a chance to really get on with your life without ever wondering why a particular…

I saw him today. Daniel Kayode. He had come on a condolence visit and even from the far end of the room, the magnetic pull between us was still there. I searched his face looking for the skinny boy I had fallen hopelessly in love with as a child, but the man before me was…

Dear Vivian, Yes, I choose to call you Vivian today. Maybe because it’s Sunday and I don’t want to term you ‘ Ex ‘. I’ve missed you a whole lot, Vivian. I saw two people today who looked like lovers while coming back from the Church and I was reminded of one of our many…

Beverly wipes the brick red lipstick from her mouth with a tissue. The stubborn lipstick refuses to part with her lips so she pulls out a baby wipe and uses it instead. When she is done, she throws the stained baby wipe on the table and walks to the window of her beauty-tutorial filming room.…

I forgot about you. Finally. I forgot about your crooked smile, your infectious laughter and how you always knew just what to say to make me laugh. I forgot about how safe I felt when you held me, and how my head used to fit in the crook of your arm. I forgot about the…

I’m glad all the fuss about Yoruba demons is finally dying down (at least I think it is). I’ve watched from the sidelines as this term continued to gain popularity over the last couple of years and wondered who to thank for this unprecedented mastery and display of the art of misdirection. I’m sure you’re…

I had often heard that good things come in threes, but I’d never given any thoughts to it, because I hate trite sayings. As usual, fate conspired to show me that as much as I thought I knew a lot, I knew nothing. Falling for you took the form of a three part drama staged…

Their response to my gleeful “Happy New Year!” was a just-as-gleeful, well-meaning and pulsatingly pregnant “This is the year that we’ll come to eat your rice!” Totally unrelated, but perhaps a co-traveller on the same locomotive train faithfully conveying my thoughts, I’ve often wondered about the enigma; Why do long-married couples start to look alike?…

Good morning to all the brothers who know how to slay in the kitchen! I’ve always been an excellent cook. Proudly! Mum taught me well and I grabbed. Market trips is nothing new; I’ve been doing that since I was a boy. It’s the reason why I can’t be cheated by traders; I’ve learnt the…

“You love gini? What if I had died that day you nearly choked me to death?” “No. Nkechi, you…” Kole covered his contrite face. “I what? I don’t understand how you feel when you are high?” She looked at him, eyes narrowed. “I’ll die if you leave me. I can give up everything, but not…

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…

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…
