City Conversations: The Introduction

As a people we love to talk, there’s no taking that away from the average Nigerian! It’s common enough in the populace and more rampant in some people groups. I will not name names so that it cannot be used against me sometime in the future. So we love the sound of our own voices and this is often seen …

Fit and Fabulous 2

In the past three days I’ve become reacquainted with several muscle groups I’d forgotten existed. We’ve started a conversation that’s both eye opening and very painful! You see I’d forgotten that reactivating unused muscles had a dark side. It’s taken me back a few years, to another pain-filled episode where as an undergrad my fellowship had an athletics meet with …

Fit and Fabulous

Finally after four years I returned to the exercise circuit! To say I’m excited is putting it mildly but I’m glad I’ve surmounted the hurdle and gotten back into the game. Before the speculation begins…no I’m not on a diet, neither am I watching my weight. I’m of the opinion that exercise is part of healthy living and should be …

Followers and the Followed

There was a time if anyone followed you were suspicious, fearful and other things like that. It was tantamount to being stalked and nobody wants that! Even the celebs most famous for stalker incidents will let on that it’s definitely not a pleasant situation. Most likely the intention of the stalker is never altruistic, as almost all Hollywood movies have …

No Light, No Fuel

These are surreal times we live in and one often doesn’t know whether one is awake, asleep or in that state in between where anything can and does happen. It’s not been this bad…ever, for either there’s light (as unreliable as we’ve come to know it to be) or fuel and so life as we know it continues. In the …

City Conversations: The Dog Acquisition

Every Lagosian is familiar with the notorious go-slow that plagues the metropolis. It’s something the city’s teeming populace has come to anticipate and dread. When traffic is absent (when expected) especially during peak periods, we’re suspicious of the reason and cautiously venture on. Also absent is the attendant paraphernalia that goes with it, most glaring are the hawkers that try …

Those Awkward Moments

Some of these questions have floated around for a while, some not so long but I’ve found myself in certain situations where I couldn’t say anything. Since I’m pretty normal (I so am!) I just knew there were others like me out there that had also had the same dilemma. So I thought it would be interesting to share some …

Arik Drama 2

My profound apologies for being unable to publish the conclusion as previously promised. I wasn’t up to speed and had to rest awhile. Muah! You’ll finally find out all about the return leg of my journey. It turns out that the end of the stick I got is apparently not as short as many others have received from Arik. For …

Arik Drama

The just concluded Workers Day weekend was filled with enough drama to last me the rest of my time on Earth…I exaggerate not. By the time I’m done with the telling you will certainly feel me and know that I lie not. I’m certain that enough people will also have tales to tell along the same lines or similar incidents …

Number Our Days

Monday was my birthday and of course I did what everyone usually does on that day i.e. took calls, read facebook messages, watched as people changed their BlackBerry dps, received text messages (these were not too many though), whatsapp chats and the like . These activities took up some time but were also quite emotional in some instances, in all …
