The Wedding Parties

This is a real life story of a wedding party that I attended on the same day I watched the unreal much-talked-about comedy The Wedding Party. Coincidence? Let me start with the wedding party of my friend. The Great Gatsby was the theme of the wedding reception. I had watched the movie but I had …

The Experience, My Experience

That mannequin challenge I saw on Facebook was fresh. Fresh, bearded and built, Pastor Paul was on point. The prelude to that yearly event was dope. My waka to TBS for The Experience 2016 was also interesting. Although this would be my first attendance, I anticipated a rush at the venue. So I bought unleavened …

Trump: When the world stood still

The US Election2016 has come and gone. What started last year as a joke and likened to hiphop rapper Kanye West's laughable presidential ambition has come to pass. Yes. Mr Donald Trump the popular real estate mogul, best-selling author, casino "royale" and The Apprentice  Reality TV star is now on his way to the white …

When a Woman Cries

It's been such a long time. Apologies. But thank you for checking back once again. Better things to come. Meanwhile enjoy this.   She was my first patient on that Monday and we started. One may say the elderly woman was a bit garrulous, but I understood she just wanted to uncork all her bottled …

Our President…My President.

The past few months have reinforced some of my political perspectives and at the same time taught me about the mind games tossed at us by the powers that be, both from the exalted public offices and the cyberspace; the twists, turns, emotions, sentiments and occasionally, the idiocy, ruthlessness and inhumanity attached. Nigeria as a …

Church, Money and the Public

Much have been said and many have heard. Little are helped, but many more are not clear. These are the realities I have observed in the wake of online talks and counter-talks involving the church, money, and the public. One may have noticed that some try to sit on the fence either in indifference or …

Philemon: the epistle in Pidgin

A part of The HOLY BIBLE inspired by the Holy Spirit and profitable for instructions. This is only a careful translation and does not (and should not be taken to) in any way play down the Spirit that speaks, rather it tries to bring the tone of the letter down to the understanding of the …

London, a City of Colours

Late morning, very cold and windy, I stood outside the station and asked a lady standing closeby, “Please where do I get Bus 12?” She replied me in a language that was either Spanish or English with a very strong Spanish accent. I think it was the former. I didn’t understand a single syllable. I …

Broda Fela, Aunty Ngozi and my friend, Ajala

“Hey you, just be travelling anyhow o. We met in London few months ago, last month you were in New York, this week you’re instagraming in Geneva. Same you they saw in Tanzania last Christmas.” “Haha monitoring spirit, I’m here for a conference. All-expense paid kilo feel? Hehe.” “Kai, international figure. You don blow o. …

Our village and our gods

Our roof is on fire. The rain now comes in trickles. We barely have enough to water our rich farmlands. The new yam has failed. Our roses have been plucked away to adorn the palaces of the kingdoms to the west and north of the endless river. Our cattle are stolen before our helpless eyes. …
