HOW MUCH CAN A WOMAN TAKE IN HER MARRIAGE?THIS IS MY STORY…

One thing I have come to realize in this part of the world is that after marriage, whatever activity that is either being done by the husband or wife is considered as a responsibility that must be done. Responsibility considered as RIGHT. This is a common illustration: As a woman, after marriage, of course it is expected to take care of your husband. One of the ways of doing this is cooking. Even though i am of the opinion that a woman is better in that aspect, does it really mean it’s the right of the husband that his wife Read more »

THAT CHICKEN THAT WOULDN’T DIE!!!

THAT CHICKEN THAT WOULDN’T DIE!!!

Once upon a time, I watched my aunt murder a chicken for Christmas celebrations. It was no big deal. I’d seen goats, cows, turkeys, cockroaches, snakes and a host of other creatures lose their lives at the hand of man/woman. But this particular incident turned out to be something memorably interesting. My aunt, like a typical Nigerian woman well versed in the art of slaughter, took the chicken’s wings and planted it under one of her feet. The she took the bird’s legs and planted them under her other foot. For you inexperienced ones, her purpose for doing this was Read more »

WHY DO NIGERIANS WISH PRESIDENT BUHARI DEAD? And why is 2face so pissed off?

WHY DO NIGERIANS WISH PRESIDENT BUHARI DEAD? And why is 2face so pissed off?

The answer is really quite simple, “people are beyond sick and tired of President Buhari and his administration’s bullshit!” It’s almost like a customized curse that’s affiliated with his regime is ravaging through the land. I was out buying suya (barbecue) last week and was doing my best to woo the suya vendor into giving me a good bargain because in my experience, I’ve discovered humility rather than bravado is a better tool while negotiating with a Nigerian seller.

KISS ME. KISS YOU. KISSING HER… LIP ACTION!

KISS ME. KISS YOU. KISSING HER… LIP ACTION!

So I’m standing in front of the mirror and talking to my reflection, telling myself I’ve gotta do better this coming week. (Why? Check here) I’m about blowing myself a goodbye kiss when I suddenly spot a healing blister on my lower lip. At first I’m not sure what I’m looking at or how it got there. I do a quick inventory through my mind’s archives trying to recall recent times I might have hurt my lip or something related. And then it comes to me… I probably got it from the violent kisser I met a day ago. The Read more »
