THE ANGUISH, AGONY AND THE TRAVAILS OF A SINGLE MOM

Image
She's hurting, she's drained, she's weak, she's tired. She needs closure, but she's not strong enough to let go. She wants to fight back this minute and tell him to go to hell, but she's crawling back to him the next minute craving his validation and attention unabashedly; forgetting her resolution to never contact him again. She feels herself going, losing every bit of herself in the process, but she has absolutely no control over it. She wants to scream out loud and cut all ties with him, but when she looks at the little bundle of the constant reminder of their sexual consent, her heart melts in awe and then she breaks her promise and the cycle continues all over again.

THE CRAZE OF FAKING ACCENT

I was craving 'Akara' that night immediately after having my bath, so I decided to dash out to get some since it was just a stone throw away from my apartment. After buying the 'Akara', I headed back home, already fantasizing about how I was going to do justice to the scintillating balls. I was passing by the viewing centre when this dude stopped me.

He told me I had ignored him the first time he called out to me while I went to get the 'Akara' . I apologised to him, and asked him what he wanted, I wasn't about to let the balls go cold. He asked for my mobile number politely, and I obliged without any hassle. Let's just say I was in a good mood that day. I got back in, demolished the balls and was still relishing the taste when his call came in.

NIGERIAN PARENTS REPUGNANCE FOR OUR INDIGENOUS LANGUAGES AND THE CRAZE FOR ENGLISH LANGUAGE

Image
I was on the bus the other day, when this semi illiterate woman kept chastising her daughter for speaking Yoruba language to her little brother. She didn't even mind the fact that she was in public. She went on to correct her daughter in her shattered,discombobulated and very irritating albeit humorous supposedly "English language". To say I was traumatised by how this lady kept assaulting everyone in the vehicle and most especially her kids with her terrible grammar is clearly an understatement.

SIGNS TO LOOK OUT FOR TO SPOT A MARRIED MAN

I was headed for a lecture that was scheduled for 2 pm that day when I met him. He was inside his vehicle, probably making a call when he spotted me. He alighted from his car when he saw me approaching. He was very tall; about 6 feet 2. He had a clear glowing brown complexion, averagely built and very handsome. Damn! What a hunk of a guy.I muttered within me. When I got to few metres away him,he stopped me politely with his greetings.

LET'S TALK ABOUT ALBINISM

Image
Last month, the news broke out that a popular Nollywood actor refused to have anything at all to do with his third child because she was different in terms of her complexion from the other kids he had. The beautiful baby's crime was the fact that she was born as an Albino.  This is something this precious jewel couldn't have avoided. He told his wife to get another father for the child because he was cock sure that the baby girl didn't come out from his loin. For several months, he abandoned both his wife and three children abroad, completely leaving the wife to fend for the kids all by herself while he was still alive. His grouse with his wife was the fact that she birthed an Albino, and in his words, no one in his family was an Albino.  So where did she get that from? He asked.

THE DARK DAWN

The room was tense, with the intruder unrelenting in her quest to be acknowledged. The Sun was shining brightly,peering in making the two women seated on the bare ground blinking their eyes intermittently. One of the women got up and walked towards the window,drawing the curtains together, to keep the intruder away.

ASSURANCE SEEMS TO BE THE NEW COOL : A CASE STUDY OF DAVIDO AND CHIOMA

Image
The internet went agog last week when the crooner Davido bought a supposedly "45 million naira" suv for one of the ladies in his life. Of course, there were reactions everywhere, with different comments trailing the love birds. He even wrote a song for her, which was released on her birthday. Wait a minute, maybe not all Nigerian men are really a lost cause; maybe some can be actually romantic, depending on the situation.(winks). The hash tag &Assurance& was everywhere, and almost every Nigerian lady wished unabashedly to live that kind of life.
