This is not an attempt to stigmatize any foodie out there. Keep flying your flag. Just make sure you only eat what you can afford before someone insults you as a parriolodo.
As for the way ojukokoro has been rebranded as cravings, we will visit that some other day.
I can’t remember the first time I heard Nicki Minaj’s Pills N Potions, but I can still remember how I felt when I heard it.
As a matter of fact, that feeling comes back afresh each time I hear it.
A common complaint I keep receiving among a large circle of friends is how people type in abbreviations, rather than spell each word out.
Going through some people’s chat, it takes me longer to decipher what is written, than it would have taken to read it if had been spelled out in full.
We the family of late Mr. Sale would like to thank the writer of last week’s PSA for their kind concern.
What you did is something no one has bothered with in the last couple of decades. From the bottom of our hearts, we say a big thank you.
What is this ado about Joy Oladokun’s voice?
You are only asking that because you have not heard her sing. Honestly, there is nothing and no one I can compare her voice to.
On some days, I can relate with how Caleb felt when he told Joshua (not actually me), “give me this mountain”.
On those days, I wake up extra strong. Ready to face any challenge. A hundred ideas running through my mind at once.
If these boys won’t let me in, I might as well accept my loss and leave now. They better hope they never cross my path in this school.
If I ever get a chance to exact my revenge on them though, it would be excruciating.
There is no attempt to compete with the dancing ability of Michael Jackson. Instead, just like the song, a relaxed Lagos vibe is the feel.
Someone who isn’t energetic or exactly a dancer won’t feel out of place listening to or dancing along. I know a seventy years old Michael Jackson would enjoy dancing to this.
Grace is one of the most crutched-on and abused creeds in the Christian faith.
Self-control on the other hand is one of the most avoided subjects, most underappreciated feature, and biggest failing for most of us.
The message in monsters you made might have gone over people’s heads. But I know when “the youth, or the next people coming after us” come to “continue” as prophesied by the man quoted at the beginning, “monsters you made” will be one of their rallying anthems.
Someone said being a Nigerian is the most frustratingly-pleasant experience in the world. Suffering And Smiling is one attempt to take some of the frustrations away.
With this song, I hope you have not lost your sense of wonder. I hope you can approach His presence and marvel at His splendor.
I believe you will approach the throne of grace, and find strength for times like this.
Let go of your bias and prejudice. Don’t allow your pride prevent you from acknowledging the truth.
Some people’s definition of thinking is rearranging their biases until it aligns to what they originally wanted.
With all traces of sleep out of my eyes, I turned to face the wall. It was either that or I get out of the room. Tomi thinks she is still a skinny kid. She doesn’t know her body is now a serious temptation.
I really didn’t think this squatting arrangement through.
I, like many people I know, tend to find it difficult to let friends from the past go.
We stay attached to the memories and emotions shared, then tie this to the person, and eventually, we never let them go.
Dear Mr. Sale, I don’t know who you have offended in this life, but I can’t help wondering why people keep reminding you that every piece of property doesn’t belong to you.
The kind of person that if you see in your dreams, you will say a prayer immediately you wake up.
And if they are the first person you see when you wake up, your only saving grace is to go back to bed. Else, trouble will be lurking at every corner you turn.
ou don’t have to have an answer to every question. And you don’t need to be the one that asks the stupid question no one else will ask.
Finally, the devil has enough advocates already. He doesn’t need you joining his defense team. Or are you a demon?
A Nigerian how to get away with murder will not be a TV series. It wouldn’t even be a mini-series. It would hardly be a full-length movie.
Honestly, if we try to be as realistic as possible, it would only be a short play.
Until this day, I am still not sure why I ran downstairs. It is not as if I had spoken to her before.
Until today, I had only seen her twice. Once at the church when her family was introduced to the congregation, and the second time was when she, her mum, and her siblings visited my house.
While they want to be sombre and mourn over spilt milk, I have cleaned the floor and I’m laughing at the way the person slipped before spilling the milk.
Is it my fault for learning from the situation, accepting my fate, finding the funny, then moving on?
The fact that you are old enough to be married, or have your own children is by the way. All a mother wants to do is keep you safe.
And if that requires taking a firm hold of your hand as you cross the street, road, or expressway, then so be it.
The NURTW is a great depiction of Nigeria. Theoretically, it is necessary and could be great. But in practice, due to mismanagement and lack of planning, it is a mess.
Most times, it is frustrating, but on the occasion where someone cares about it, it is admirable.
I have considered giving Tomi some money to go out on Sunday. Having Tomi around during our personal time is one Hannah won’t find comfortable.
If only her boyfriend was in Lagos. Maybe I should hook her up with one of these guys that have been disturbing me for her number.
A fact many motivational speakers fail to touch on is that talent, ideas, and inspiration is often useless without funds.
And when its uselessness gets critical, it can grow until it becomes frustrating, saddening, and depressing.
Thankfully, understanding that the phase of “recipes without ingredients” is one that if properly maneuvered, eventually passes, is a hope that is life saving.
It seems like street owners, town planners, and real estate developers are becoming extremely lazy in naming their facilities.
You have ample time to come up with a name, yet somehow you still end up going with Unity Close and Unity Estate.
Wahala ambassadors don’t need a second invitation to foment trouble. They don’t even need you to complete giving out the initial invitation.
They will escalate issues while you are still contemplating letting go.
No matter how fast you are moving, if you are heading in the wrong direction, no amount of speed will bring you to your intended destination.
Instead, the faster you go, the further you are from your goal.
A common complaint I have seen among my peers is a lack of connection.
Growing up, we were told that what was most important was what we know. As grown up, we have come to realize that who we know is probably just as important. In some cases, even more.
Every Friday, after school hours, my friends were engaged in something called “The Big Ballers League”.
It involved students from my school and a few schools around. They met at a football field and have their respective teams engage in a league format competition.
