Ruth

I wanted to write a tale of a good friend. I know I have a bunch of bffs but today Ruth is the one. Friendship isn’t a transactional or a tit for tat relationship. It’s built with steady trust and love. For me it isn’t something that can’t be bought or sold. Growing up I thought friendship equated to the person that always spent on you, you’re on call with for hours, your turnup partner or the person you call…

Tale of the lazy writer

I had two worlds known to me. The one I lived in and the one I created from my imaginations. Words were something that flowed through my veins. For every statement I made, it meant so much to me. I absorbed the words and created images from every description I read till they became part of my memory. I loved stories. I could deal with lies if they were interesting enough to listen to. I became engrossed in fiction and…

Thanksgiving

I’ve never been the conventional boring person but recently I’m like how do I put up with my boredom, talk more of the people around me. I am going to write today like this is my diary. I’ve been observing social distancing in the real sense with almost everyone. Most days I’m just confused. What next? And then what? I can hardly think of the next thing to do. My emotions are everywhere causing havoc. I’ve tried registering for a…

Change is coming

Somehow and somewhere in my heart I always prayed for change. It seemed impossible. It felt like we’ve adjusted to the system of corruption and it was working fine for us. I grew up with a system where the masses thanked the kleptomaniac leaders for the crumbs accumulated from the national reserve.The whole system was fucked up. The poor got poorer and the “ogas at the top” knew only one thing: how to keep stealing. Hoodlums were created as a…

September 2020

My September started uncertain and at the end it became clear that everyday was the summary of my last 8 months. It was filled with  congratulations from engagements, condolence messages, my vlogging (this isn’t still a thing though 🤣🤣🤣), summer, autumn, church, school, lockdown, making new friends, losing friends, birthdays, swimming, parties, dates, forgiveness, learning, good vibes, faith, trust and bonding. I was mostly stressed this month from my dissertation but I thank God I’m fine and it’s finally over.…

If you’re happy and you know it

Can we all decide to take a break from all that’s going on around us and decide to happy regardless of how sad we feel? Some of us are having the worst moment of our lives. I really wish I can relate with every struggle and come up with the best solution. Life is made up of seasons. We’ve come to realise that life events don’t exactly go according to how we plan them. Let’s have the courage to be anything else…

Pure vibes and Insha Allah

I’ve been all about being peng with my jpegs. The past few weeks were like the best so far. I started a Whasapp vlog. Tbh it doesn’t make sense to me as the executive producer, cameraman, director and videographer but I have views and fans 🤣🤣🤣. I love you guys. It started as a joke but my friends write me that they look forward to my post everyday. Who knows if they’re mocking me??? E consign them. Basically we have…
