Of Fitness for Office

Societies are defined by what is deemed acceptable and what is not. What people will be outraged about often dictates the limits of human behavior that will thrive and in turn dictate the standards to which government officials are held. A few years ago, there was a fuel scarcity in France because the tanker drivers…

Of Stereotyping Every Young Nigerian

I look like a middle aged father of 4 that can afford the car he is driving. However, there is no single day I have gone to Ajah or Ikeja or Palms Shopping Mall in Lagos that a batch of drunk policemen have not stopped my car. I say drunk because they smell heavily doused…

Of Karma Not Having Expiry Date

Nobody will believe me now but this exact thing happened to me in 2008. I had just gotten a job and still didn’t have a car. I was dirt poor and always broke. Got off the bus at Obalende on top of the bridge on my first day to the new office at Ikoyi and…

Of Religious High Horses & Great Falls

I saw that story online. I copied it and posted on my feeds. I originally had no thoughts about it. A man had sex with another woman while traveling, is as unremarkable a story as watching paint dry on a freshly painted wall. Plus Sammie Okoposo is one of the good ones. He faces his…

Of An Incident You Won’t Believe

This will be short and straight to the point. You know I don’t believe in supernatural balderdash in the way that Nollywood portrays it. I agree there are evil psychopaths in this world but their evil is very much man made. So back then I moved into a new place and as usual, I did…

Of You being the Ritual Killer

There’s been all this talk about ritual killings in the papers lately. The Nigerian culture is full of year end murders of innocent people for ritual purposes. It sadly cuts across all tribes and finds its way to city centres like Lagos. Port Harcourt has been in the news a lot for this followed by…

Of Surviving Twitter Drags 101

I write this as a 4-time veteran of Twitter dragging. If you don’t know what Twitter dragging is, then you probably don’t use the app anyway so you don’t need this post. A lot of young people or new users to the app, find this mob action very overwhelming and there are recorded instances where…

Of Korede’s Rebranding

So today I was minding my own business when I stumbled upon Korede Bello’s ‘Table for Two” EP. You may remember one of my blog post where I indicated that marketing support is very critical to the success of any album. The truth is that some of the best work that comes out of the…

Of Adele and her 30 misfires

Yep, Oh My God is the apt exclamation and not in a good way. Adele’s new album is titled 30. It’s made up of the same usual ballads from a place of pain and heartache. These emotions are usually globally relatable because they are concepts felt by every human being. She therefore usually doesn’t have…

Of Promises

Do what you can in the moment and keep it moving. They wanted 200 thousand but you only have 5 thousand right then, send the 5 and close it out.
