My Book of Phobia

Posted on

I did the most ridiculous thing! I sat there quietly, my heart almost jumping out of my chest, wondering how I could handle a possible assault if this phobia became a reality. I followed this responsible looking gentleman home to pick up a document. In a bid not to sound childish and impolite, I didn’t […]

Jaded Ones

Posted on

The wind caressed my face. I was riding my bike on top speed. It all took a moment, a bright light accompanied by a loud horn. That was all I could recall, before I felt a sharp pain like my spinal cord splitter in two, I blanked out. I opened my eyes, couldn’t move a […]

Getting ready for the big question

Posted on

Something happened yesterday. A church member proposed to his girlfriend, during our Christmas funfair, and she said no. But, that’s not the gist. A few hours later, I saw the same guy kneeling again, in front of a different girl, watched by a larger crowd, and this girl said yes! The first girl was there, […]

Yoruba Service

Posted on

Ekaarooo! Oooo….ekabo ma! Ese! Oluwa bu kun nyi! It had been a long battle of the mind before I finally made it! The first told me to forget the morning’s service. ‘I was tired’ and not in any mood for a sermon. Or so I thought. ‘You will regret it’! My conscience finally echoed. But […]
