Siju’s memoirs: through daddy’s rearview

Awoken by the sound of the alarm, I said a quick prayer and rolled up my mat into a corner. Next, I hurled my bucket of water to the bathroom we shared with several other tenants. Characteristic of the renowned face-me-I-face-you houses in Lagos, everything that had a public face to it had to be … Continue reading Siju’s memoirs: through daddy’s rearview

Nature’s burden

Nature’s burden

Maybe I’d simply become rusty. After all, I hadn’t attended a conventional church service in a while. That’s not the focus though. Rather, it’s the raging contradiction that ironically chronicles nature’s very own characteristic calls. I’d been seated for 2 hours when nature posed a tempting call: sleep. Yawning and twisting in my seat, I … Continue reading Nature’s burden

The “X” factor

Prologue… As I look forth to yet another iterative phase of my entrepreneurial pursuit, the X factor comes to mind. X, the unknown variable! Expressible in many words, phrases, languages yet culminating in the same symbol,”?”. How interesting this universal factor! Captivating, the task required towards resolving its unknown state. Suspense, the mood to describe the journey that … Continue reading The “X” factor

Bloodshot eyes, facial creases, hasty strides; every man like they are chasing after one ultimate prize. Men, women, young, old of different shapes and sizes with disquiet demeanours. Without doubt, this street hardens you! Better yet, it redefines us with an aura of hardness that’s both socially enlightening and subconsciously rigid. It’s no wonder someone … Continue reading Lasgidi: life n times 1

Ruminations of a 9japreneur – A contract gone bad

Surely, oga doesn’t care to know about the ripple effects of his ignorant driven action with greed and arrogance written all over. My mind replayed events of the last few hours moving through the present to the foreseeable … Continue reading Ruminations of a 9japreneur – A contract gone bad

Postcards to Grandma…gossips from the Hood

Postcards to Grandma…gossips from the Hood

Greetings Ma, e ku isimi. Going by your Christian Faith which you held unto till the end, I suppose it’s fair to ask about Life in Heaven, your probable abode. So, how’s the land of purity? Hazy memories of my Sunday school lessons paint a picture of purity, inhabitants clad in white garments, walking on … Continue reading Postcards to Grandma…gossips from the Hood

The Word:: The messenger, the hearer and the message.

The Word:: The messenger, the hearer and the message.

[Yawn]…Morning breaks, not to the crows of the cock as it once was. Neither to cries of the crow atop my window seal. But rather, today, to the cries of microphones and loud-speakers bellowing from across the street. Microphones strewn around the representative symbols of the major monotheistic faiths whose structures lie in numbers along … Continue reading The Word:: The messenger, the hearer and the message.
