Be Careful!

My dad and I were coming back from office, we saw a police man that stopped us and pleaded to carry him to his check point, my dad being a kind man allowed him in and then told me to come and seat with him at the back seat so the official can seat in the front with the driver. We never got to any check point before the policeman said he’s okay here that he should alight..
We dropped him, then we saw two bullets rolled down from underneath the front seat to my dads leg, we were not conscious, he was like what a pity this man forgot a bullet, we couldn’t turn back and give the bullet back so he took it and threw it out from the window. We got to police checkpoint they stopped us, asked for some particulars, though our glass was tinted they asked for that too, the man checking the particulars insisted it was a stop and search we should come down, then I started thanking God that what if we never found the bullet..
They searched and searched and found nothing they made a signal and one guy …

About Last Night (Miss Disrespectful...)

I had no intention of going out last night so when Ahmed called me a few minutes after 10pm, just when I was shimmying into my nightie, I was certain I would respond in the negative. However it occurred to me that I haven't been out in a while and I didn't feel sleepy either ways, so I asked him to come and get me. 
We argued a little about where to start our night; BLD, Churasco or "local". His friends at Churasco weren't going to be there for long so we headed there. 
It was really nice; the conversation, the company, the food and the ambience. Ahmed is someone I'm very veeryyyy comfortable with. He's been asking me out for some time but we do very well as friends plus there's that tribe+religion factor...
So, of all his friends there last night, the most mature and reserved was one whom he referred to as his Egbon. I wasn't quite sure what to make of him, his distinguished grey beards revealed he must be in his late 40s or older. He didn't say…

Group Set to Hold Support Programme for Nigerian Military

Zeta Galleon Centre For Leadership has expressed its sincere commitment to continue to provide support for the Nigerian military battling terrorism and insurgency in the North-east region as it commenced preparations for this year’s programme known as ‘Support Our Troops Against Terrorism (SOTAT) rally to be held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on December 11. The group which is a branch of Brothers Across Nigeria (BAN) has tagged this year’s event ‘Support For The Wounded Warriors’ to shore up love, support and prayers for the military in the daunting task of defeating the Boko Haram terrorists.Speaking with journalists on Thursday in Port Harcourt, the group’s Secretary Mr. Ken Agala, said this year’s event would feature visitation to the families of soldiers who died fighting terrorists and also visit some of the wounded soldiers.According to him, “Our soldiers are our symbol of national pride and we must continue to cherish the roles they play by holding fort so that we can live nor…

Mr "Not Really Married"

Jules met Ikenna at the bank months ago. Right there in the banking hall they exchanged numbers and soon became really good friends. Jules noticed they had chemistry and knew that Ikenna liked her yet she wondered why he was being slow about asking her out. They started to spend long hours on the phone and went on a few dates where they shared hungry kisses, still no relationship talk. This drove Jules crazy, she was quick falling in love with him, worse yet, he was crazy about her too but just wouldn't say a thing.       The first time Ikenna visited Jules at home they had sex, very good sex, which made Jules adamant about having this man to herself. Boldened by this desire, she broached the topic and after an awkward silence Ikenna admitted that he was in love with her, but... he's married. 
This threw Jules off. She was mad at Ikenna for not saying anything all this while, leading her on and now making her sleep with a married man. He pleaded and pleaded with her to understan…

Post-Break Up Relationships...

"The minute we broke up you and him had no business being friends! You had no right or reason to continue talking to him" she yelled at me last night.

Biafra & The Zoo. To Which Do You Belong?

Some months ago after a very satisfying date with a darling friend of mine in the South, I reclined my seat as we drove home from the restaurant. He turned his radio on and I'd expected to here some sensual R'n'B music, maybe some Keith Sweat or Joe, to go with the mood. However nna bros had something else in mind as he went straight to Radio Biafra and cranked the volume way up.  
That was my first experience with radio Biafra, and it was quite surreal. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, never imagined something so "unique" existed on the airwaves. Till date I'm not sure if my friend listens to it solely for comic relief or if he's a card carrying pro-Biafran. I've been itching to ask but afraid of the answer... 
As I heard the expletives and angry words, especially the word "zoo" being thrown around once every minute, and several divisive conspiracy theories being hurled, I wondered one thing; what's the agenda, and why?

To Call The Wedding Off Or ...?

This mail sent to @DerrickJaxn got me feeling some type of way. My first reaction was to roll my eyes and ask "What do women really want?". Second reaction was to call her friend a witch. But my third reaction... Hmmm, what if there's an actual valid concern here? What if there's a real self control issue to be contended with? Is he implying that if he had to stay with the friend in the house he would have had to get frisky with her? No woman wants to knowingly wed a philanderer so is she justified in wondering if she should call it off? 
Thoughts?

Dear Thelma...

Good morning Thelma, please help me post this. I'm currently facing a situation that's making me have to make a decision concerning my relationship. My boyfriend and I have been together for six years this year. We are both in our 30s, we have good jobs and we're both comfortable financially. I've had the marriage talk with him several times and he always says that we will get married but at the right time. I never put pressure on him because we've always had a very good relationship. I know he loves me very much and everybody that knows us knows this. His family welcomes me as one of them and my family loves him too. We're both very passionate and ambitious people ad he is my best friend and I believe that he is my soul mate because he is everything I want in a man, he has a very good heart and he treats me like a queen so I always believed that soon we will start to plan our wedding until three days ago when I got a pregnancy scare. I missed my period so I de…

Drawing The Disloyalty Line.

Mercy and Francess have been best of friends for almost thirty years. They've been in each other's lives, seen each other through challenges, exams, failed relationships, bridal showers, weddings, baby showers and practically everything else. Their bond is so strong and has only grown stronger through the years, the two are closer than sisters.       During the elections Mercy's husband ran for office and was very popular within his party, so his chances are rather good. However the opposing candidate belonged the then ruling, thus more popular party in the state. As such they had more backers and more resources. One of these resources was in the form of one of the greatest influencers in the state, who also happens to be Francess. Francess has a large platform, a cult-like following and a great track record as an influencer so anyone she endorses is likely guaranteed success.         Prior to the election campaigns Mercy had always taken it for granted that when the time co…

There's Joy In Sharing; Beds, Husbands & Breakfast.

"He said I should give you this letter if you ever got better... I'm so happy you did. Honestly, I am.... I really care about you Christie, I really do. I know you may not believe it, but I really do. I'm so happy you got better". Her words and emotions seemed very genuine, the love and empathy in her eyes were as clear as day. But barely seconds before she said the words above, she'd just come clean to Christie that while she, Christie, was ill, she had an affair with her husband, and that she really did love him. 
Christie was torn between this shocking news about her friend and her husband, and the display of sincere emotions by this same friend. In one breath you tell me that while I lay ill in a sick bed you were sleeping with my husband, in our bed... then tell me that you really care about me and are so happy I got better???... She would have loved to call bull shit, but how could she, when it was this same friend who nurtured her back to health, took care …

Answer Me This...

So tell me people, honestly... If you had to marry the last person you had sex with, would you be happy?
Yes? No? Tell us why. 
I guess you may want to skip this question if you're married, or maybe not? I don't know anymore these days *scratches head* *runs away*...

Dear Thelma... (Dilemma. His Ex Is Still In The Picture!)

I need your advice on an issue n I know I'll get valuable advise from fellow blog readers too. I started dating a friend of mine early this year, we just decided to go head in first, cos I felt to an extent I knew him. To cut a long story short he told me immediately we started dating that he had a business relationship with his Ex and that they were still good friends, their break up was amicable and that when the business eventually kicks off and things pick up they'll ve minimal contact, so I shld'nt worry basically. I then felt it will be nice to meet her cos I thought since she'll be in our lives I might as well be friendly and get to know her. I suggested means and hows for us to meet, my BF had his own suggestions too, but it was not to be as she's outrightly refused to let it happen. She'll call him when we'r hanging out and I was uncomfortable with it and mentioned to him, he told her and I've not had to deal with such in a while. I told him I'…

Blog Reader Asks... (I Can't Stop Overthinking; Just Friends or Second Shot?)

My ex called me up a few weeks ago to help him with something he was working on since I happened to work in the industry he was researching. I helped how I could and moved on. Few weeks later, he got a commendation at work for what I helped him with, apparently, it turned out very well so he sent me a mail to tell me about it and then asked to take me to lunch to say thank you.
I forgot about(read ignored) the mail for about a week and then responded saying the lunch won't be necessary that the heartfelt thank you was just enough, he sent another mail asking me to pls not say No that he would like to really thank me and most importantly see me. We have the same circle of friends/acquaitances so I kinda avoided them since we broke up last year. Anyway, I saw him some days ago and he was all excited and shining teeth and I was just looking like - why is this one shining teeth, did he forget how stuff ended last yr?
Fastforward 2days after I saw him, he asked about the "thank you …

Money or Passion? Do tell.

I spent most of yesterday at or around the Corporate Affairs Commission at Yaba. That has got to be one of the busiest places in Lagos, rarely ever a lull in business. It's so busy that it spills to the environs, and everyone and their mothers have found a way to make a buck from "CAC runs". To be frank I'd not been there in a while and a lot had changed. The customer service lady i used to do a lot of work with in the past has been promoted high up, and she's gone from a size 18 to a size 12. I can no longer pay stamp duties there, it's got to be somewhere on the island. And oh, business name forms are no longer written on but typed on. 
This news, with a few others had me running round and round like a cockroach under floodlight. I was all over the place, CAC and then high court, and then some dingy office somewhere around to do things I could only do in dingy places, then back to CAC, then some koro behind the court... It brought to mind something that'…

I'm no longer sure what's right and what's wrong...

A few days back I read a post about a lady who met this guy on facebook. They hit it off and started exchanging texts and phone calls. Eventually they made plans for a date, which was to be one evening on a weekday. The chica being a 9-5'er would meet up with the young man after work at the appointed place. Broda however had other plans. He said she should come and pick him up. (Now, there's nothing wrong with this; but for a first date? The first time you both would be meeting? Come the fuck on!). She explained to him that it wouldn't be possible, his place was exact opposites from where they were meant to meet and her office is in an entirely different direction. Also, you know how Lagos traffic is at that time of the day, going from her office to pick him up and then head for the date spot would take no less than two hours. Of course this kind of chore would be completely unappealing to anyone after a hard day's work. Well bros wasn't interested in this explanat…

Dear Thelma... (A Friend In Need...)

Good morning T and the house. Please I need your advice on this issue. My best friend hooked up with her ex who was visiting the country and they didn't use protection because they used to be in a serious relationship. Now he has gone back to Canada and now she is pregnant. He is engaged even and his wife to be too is pregnant. My friend does not want to keep the baby which I think is the best idea she can have for now. My problem is that she wants me to follow her to the clinic because she cannot go alone. I have never done an abortion because  I am always very careful and I know abortion is not an option for me, because I feel like it is a big sin, like murder. I have heard pastors say that if you escort someone for an abortion you are just as guilty as the person in the eyes of God, is this true? Apart from that anything can happen there and I might be held responsible. Please I need advise, she is an only girl and doesn't have much friends she can trust except me so I know…

Your Very First...

I think I could do with a bit of laughter right now, eventhough what led to this post wasn't remotely funny. I had to mail someone following some enquiries I made for a business concern and had to copy some guy who works with the company. I couldn't believe that his email address was coolbloke360@xxx.com
Seriously! But I recall the advent of electronic mail, some of us were still in secondary school and struggled to come up with the coolest sounding email addresses. Most of our first email addresses would be simply hilarious to hear right now. Mine was letsplay@yahoo.co.uk. Chocolate's was rottenrascal@xxx.com (LOL), another friend's was prettypu**y@hotmail.com (smh). Just asked my colleague and his was iyke_4u@yahoo.com
What was yours?

So You Think Blogging Is Easy?

I just read a blogger say blogging can be very tiring and depressing. I smiled.

About Last Night and The One That Got Away...

Yesterday evening I had to meet up with a friend to collect some documents I'd left with him to sign. He had a meeting slated for 7 at The Palms so I decided to meet up with him there. He was rounding up just as I got there. Formalities out of the way, he began to ask me about work and business and all of that stuff and I was dutifully answering his questions when he cut in with "Can I at least look at your eyes while you talk?".  Haha! I couldn't look him in the eyes, I didn't know why but I'd hoped he wouldn't notice. Smiling, I made eye contact and tried to hold his gaze while I talked but I failed miserably. I know there are no feelings left anymore but maybe I was scared if he saw my eyes he would see into my soul and read my thoughts. Would he hear the wistful What ifs? and that crazy voice screaming I wanna have your babies!...? No, I couldn't look at him so I stared straight ahead while I talked about work and family and other mundanities.  
I k…

Hard Work or Sheer Luck? Linda Ikeji & The 5 Things We Can't Stop Talking About.

Did the title of this post make you roll your eyes? Did it, infuriate you, perhaps? Are you tired to seeing that name everywhere you turn, hearing it everywhere you go? Well I can empathize with you. 
We've not as a people, had such a healthy debate over any singular topic in a long time, perhaps since the PDP vs APC debates pre-2015 elections. The topic; Linda Ikeji. And I've noticed five major subtopics from comments on various blogs and people's conversations... *Who Will Marry Linda Ikeji? *Who Will Linda Ikeji Marry? *Is Linda Really an Inspiration? *Linda Should Please Shut Up About Being Hardworking, Her Story Is a Result Of God's Grace.  *Laura Ikeji The Leech. 

Who Will Marry Linda Ikeji The lady herself asked the question in a tweet, albeit cheekily; "who will marry me?" And if this question hasn't crossed your mind then you're not Nigerian. Buhari's (then) long awaited ministerial list has nothing on this subtopic, it's a source curiousity,…

Zumji and Uchenna!

Wait what? "Imagine that donkey from the north courting our sister". "Are not Ibos smart enough to take the virginity of their girls!” “Are our cocks too short and small? Bloody Hell”


When I first saw this on Dr Lanre Olusola's page I thought it must be some kind of joke. Apparently I thought wrong.  



Teachers have said that they were mandated to include this book among the literature books and failure to do so would attract a sanction. Ministry of Education well done oh! Could the lessons within the covers of this book be so great that the tribalistic theme, vulgar language, swear words and adult content become small prices to pay? 
What do you guys think?
