13 SAYINGS PECULIAR TO ONLY NIGERIANS.

I was sitting in bed last week, minding my own business, when something entered my left eye from no where. I did everything I could, shut it tight, flushed it with water but it was still peppering me. Then suddenly, even in my dilemma I figured my next blog post would be about words that are…

#AkeFest2016: A Promising Beginning.

I desperately wanted to attend the Ake Book Festival this year, but I couldn’t because of an important trip I had to make. But thankfully, my darling Phidelia whose short story  I featured a while ago here was there and she has given me permission to re share her account from phideliaimiegha.com, which I am super super grateful for….

FIGURE HEADS; Lagos Airport Diaries

I’ve been thinking, perhaps I need to have a “Airport Diaries” segment on my blog. I usually have the weirdest things happen to me there, like this one that happened in Accra I blogged about a while ago.

RELAX, YOU ARE DOING OK.

SAY NO… TO THAT NEXT ASO EBI.

It will not be far from the truth to say that one of the most difficult word’s for adults to say is NO. We even say no in our heads so many times but as soon as it is time to execute, for some reason it changes to yes. But NO is really just a…

CONSCIOUS ACTIVITIES I PLAN TO ENGAGE IN THIS NEW MONTH.

I recently stumbled on a grounding exercise that has to do with the 5 senses, for good use when feeling generally disconnected from myself as I tend to often always feel. And it has been of great help. So this new month, I thought it would be good to plan grounding exercises for my all…

10 THINGS I HAVE LEARNT SINCE MOVING TO LAGOS.

While Lagos is quite a familiar city to me, it is actually my first time living here. My first visit here I was age 7 or so and didn’t return till I was in University. Before now, it was easier for me to enjoy the sights and sounds of Lagos because I was merely visiting….

HAVE YOU FELT YOUR BOOBIES TODAY?

I hope that any woman, or man reading this does not still feel that breast cancer or cancer generally is a thing that happens to “people” conveniently forgetting that they belong under that umbrella name called people. 

CLARA, THE NURSE WHO SPEAKS 5 LANGUAGES. #SHAREYOURFEAT

For this first comeback post of “Share Your Feat” I present to you Clara, whose feat I consider to be one of a kind. A multilingual. She shares with me on her running away to France a few tips for when visiting a new country and how a cross wiring happens in her brain sometimes…

BOYS WILL NO MORE BE BOYS, THEY WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

I have often said that many men can be sexual assaulters and don’t even know it. They say of rapists and women beaters “Oh I am not like that monster in the news, or “I can never do such a horrible thing,” forgetting that the culture that allows for rape and violence justifies them, favours them,…

I AM BRINGING THE “SHARE YOUR FEAT” SEGMENT BACK.

Hey guys. As you may know, I have recently moved back to Nigeria and so my writing has been a little slow although now about to pick up. To be honest I think I just miss my old work space. Looking forward to setting up and writing from Lagos. There is a poshness to it…
