13 SAYINGS PECULIAR TO ONLY NIGERIANS.

RUM BUM BUM BUM

Logistic problem is the thing that people say after plans they made don’t work out.

LONDON LIES, LAGOS CHILLING.

You know those people that go to America for one month and then on their return home suddenly start calling Police men – The Feds? As in, our stand-on-the-road-munch-groundnut-and-beg-for-50naira-policemen. Feds. Running down everything about Nigeria while attempting to be an IJGB. You literally just want to slap them and say c’mon will you adjust right…

I SPEAK VERNACULAR

There is a bubble we speakers of the English language live in I am about to burst with my pen, or keypad in this case. I remember an incident that occurred when I was much younger. We were watching The Miss World pageant in our living room, the one that Agbani Darego won, and a…

WAKA ABOUT; DUBAI, THE FIRST TIME ROUND

View from the balcony The city of Dubai is everything they say it is, there are no exaggerations.

LEAP OF FAITH

In the spirit of throw backs, today being Thursday, I decided to blog about a mission I went on earlier this month. That should count as throwback yea? You see, I am your convenient type of girl. If something suits me I can stay on it forever. I don’t go trying new things, especially if…

Shaaki Is To Lagos What Ham is to London
