One of the good things about the internet, social networks, BBM et al is that it helps us realise how nice offline ‘dates’ can be. So when there was a very big chance for an NS meet in Owerri, I was very excited. After lots of preparation by Pinkgoth and I (Jaywriter), an NS Meet … Continue reading Naija Stories Meetup Owerri

I recently read something that reminded me of Rhema’s The Child Bride. I tried to talk the writer into taking poetry a little more serious (for the fun side of it) but she insisted she didn’t have ‘any’ talent for poetry. At first I thought just being modest, but she was serious. She … Continue reading An African Bride

I consider myself a feminist and have always supported women looking good even as wives. So that means I support dresses that are a little ‘mini’ and a little makeup. Recently, however, I discovered that lotta girls look very different when they aint on makeup. Like Ada is fair when she comes to school but … Continue reading Makeup

It has really been a great year for the Nigerian movie industry. Great year because a couple of really good movies surfaced… somehow. There was Ije and Figurine and Anchor Baby. Of course there was Guilty Pleasures, which by the way I don’t put in the same class with Ije, Figurine and Anchor Baby. I … Continue reading NOLLYWOOD – A good 2010; A better 2011…
‘Hey’, he heard that voice again and turned. There she was. The only word worthy enough to describe her was perfect.
‘You came’, he replied nervously.
‘I said I was coming, didn’t I?’, she said and melted him with that same smile. Why does ‘same’ even come into the smile, he wondered..
