I am going to blow open the Nigerian Literary Landscape, and I will let the world know that yes, we can write things that are not about the Single Story. I love God, my family, Dark tales, Rock Music, Photography and Chocolate. I live close to a Cemetery, but it doesn't look Dark; it is too open.

The screams were the cries of fear confronted by madness and … Continue reading Checkpoint (4)

5 When one sees the unbelievable, the unthinkable, one immediately goes through various stages. First is surprise-what’s that? Second is incredulity-is that what I think it is? Am I seeing this? Third, denial. The brain processes what the eyes have seen, delves into its archives, compares, and then discards the new information, rejects it outright. … Continue reading Checkpoint (2)
