Making Nigerian Writing Profitable

I was reading Ayo Sogunro’s twitter interview with 1Pageweekly.com the other day and one of his responses struck me. Most of us Nigerian writers, especially those based in Nigeria are polygamists. We are married to the pursuit of our writing for the passion, but are stuck in a marriage of convenience with some other means … Continue reading Making Nigerian Writing Profitable

All of us in the room were dumbfounded. My mind raced all over the place trying to grasp an answer. Well, while my mind was racing all over, even as he was on his knee, Gloria began a thorough questioning session “Are you gay, Femi?” “Hell no, I heard all about that, and no, I … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 24

I shouted from inside my house “Femi, go away! I don’t ever want to see you again. And if you came back because you are feeling bad and want to apologize, it’s not needed. Just go!” “Calm down Oyin!” Gloria shouted me down, and for some reason I cannot understand, I actually became quiet and … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 23

Hawt Pastor caught my exclamation and quickly inquired “what’s the matter? Is there a problem?” “I hope this is not going to take long, an emergency just came up, and I would have to leave very quickly”, I responded after taking a second to gather my breath. He just said “Hmmm”, and then stepped aside … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 22

We both shrieked along, me in delight, and Glo in shock, turning my living room into one big shriek fest, at 11:30pm. When the shrieking had died down, Toke bid us farewell with a “he’s coming, gotta go, we’re about to celebrate”, and hung up. She actually said the last line #inWaconzyVoice Almost as soon … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 21

We agreed with Toke that we would meet Lumi. In spite of all our reservations about the cougar kinda relationship, we decided to support her. Immediately we did, Toke excitedly called him and put it on speaker. A deep rich baritone voice with a slight British accent came through “Ololufemimydear, wotagwan”. Toke:“Guess what”? Lumi:“What o?” … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 20

We watched as Toke struggled with telling us who Olumide was and my fears about him instantly skyrocketed. I hoped Toke wasn’t pregnant for some married man. The most intelligent ladies do the silliest things at times, when you least expect it. “I met Olumide about a month ago. Very nice guy.” She took her … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 19

Let me explain. Gloria is one of those light complexioned Ibo girls that cannot enter a place without being noticed. It’s one of the reasons we call her Glo (apart from the other obvious one  ). If you hold her too much on one spot, the skin of that spot will become red, that’s how sensitive … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 17

Ossy took a seat opposite me as a waiter followed him closely with an exquisite bottle of white wine, the type that I liked. “Is this a joke or something? Or are you on a date with Gloria here?” I asked, confused. Someone had been sending me romantic notes and gifts for the past few … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 16

The tabloids were merciless. For weeks after the botched wedding, there was one story or the other about me, Gloria, Ossy and Yomi in every print and online tabloid and blog possible. Comedians used us as skits for their event promos. It was real bad. And trust Nollywood, within two weeks of the event, there … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 14

Yes, I decided to marry Yomi. After all, people knowingly marry people who decided to be drug pushers, thieving politicians and all the kinds of thieves and bad men within that wide range of bad-man-ism, and even help them keep the secret. My reasoning (which I came to conclusion of without mumsy in my head) … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 13

The next day, I switched off all my phones and left home. My mum had called me at least 20times that morning to keep reminding me that I should not throw away this opportunity to settle down. I checked into a room in Penisula Resort, Ajah, away from everybody to think. I knew I had … Continue reading Finding Hubby – Episode 12
