CHILL PILL

2018 is coming to a wrap and I am yet to answer the question, “what next?”. Or maybe I have an answer and it’s “I don’t know”.  Sometime ago, I had all the answers. I knew what to do and how to go about it. I knew the right buttons to push till I didn’t…

THE STEW STORY

Returning to my abode was a long and tiring journey after weeks of being in Lagos. The journey was just the least of my problems, I was thinking of how I would learn to live in darkness all over and exhaust my Naira on fuel. Not all states are as electrifying and enjoyable as Lagos….

INDEPENDENCE: 58 WITH THE WRONG DANCE.

I sat on my bed hoping the light would come; it was flashed earlier. My devices were low on juice and the thought of making use of the generator gave no joy – it had been over utilized and fuel no longer cheap. There was a time we purchased fuel by the litre. Now we…
