Lessons from a Movie Set

Many of us love to hate our Nollywood movies and would rather be caught dead than at the cinemas watching one. We thumb our noses at them and ne’er a good word for it even if we do. On the other hand, a few of us champion them and can reel off the names of not only actors but some …

BVN Woes

I’m a peaceful law abiding citizen and prefer to stay that way. So when personal documents etc have to be renewed I like to do so well before expiration dates, the same goes for bill payments and the like.

City Conversations: The Dog Acquisition

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 …

Roll Call

Over the weekend, I witnessed something interesting and thought to share. It certainly got me thinking, whilst aspects of it puzzled me. An interview was to take place and prior to this, registration of attendees was carried out. This involved documents that had been previously filled and this meant retrieving those papers by matching them with the names in the …
