I guess it's the first of its kind too. *does a back flip* Sooooo, here … Continue reading 15 Questions with Yemi

From shutterbug to lovebug

I had used privilege to get into the hall. My 'tutor' was one of the commissioned photographers at Stand Up Nigeria. All I wanted to do was go watch comedians in real life for free. I wasn't prepared for what would happen next. At the peak of me enjoying the show, he handed the camera … Continue reading From shutterbug to lovebug

1020 Pieces and the missing peace

On July 20, I got an order for a customized jigsaw puzzle from a client. He wanted a customized version of our 1020-pieces plastic jigsaw puzzle and we were eager & elated to get to work once we got his payment confirmation. I would eventually be reminded that the production of a customized plastic puzzle … Continue reading 1020 Pieces and the missing peace

Love Crumbled Me

We all have fairytale versions of how we would love our lives to go but it almost never manifests as we hope. You can almost hear the mischievious giggle of life as she throws random stumbling blocks our way. They could be little blocks, they could be huge mountains. But deliver, she must. Sequel to … Continue reading Love Crumbled Me

I kissed a married man

In my second year of Uni, I met this cute, portable sized boy. We happened to be in the same faculty and would often run into each other.

A Blade of Grass

Bez caught his wife’s eyes in the mirror. She was giving him one of those dirty looks he knew all too well. This is new, he thought, checking out the skin-colored lingerie Dera had on. She really meant him this morning. And damn, was she looking like a 7-course dinner. The smell of her perfume … Continue reading A Blade of Grass

Before I Die…

From the moment we had our first cry to the moment we'd take our last breath, everything that transpires in between that dash is sort of a time-filler. While we only get to do this life once (except you decide to reincarnate as a tree) and no one knows just how much time has been … Continue reading Before I Die…

Primavera – Episode 4

Uche leaned against the car and rapped his fingers on the roof. He watched as Somto emerged from the Junior Church building. As much as a lot had changed in the home front, she was still diligent with her service in church. It baffled him how she had become a stranger to their daughter yet … Continue reading Primavera – Episode 4
