** *** ***  //The Problem Is…//   Four weeks had passed since Bradley walked back into Anu’s life. They were former lovers who were now simply friends.

I Woke Up Old Dare paused, not sure if it was his name he had just heard. ‘Dare,’ the voice called out again. It was the unmistakeable voice of his grandpa. Dare frowned, scratching his head as he stopped in his tracks. What would this old man be possibly calling me for? he thought to himself as he turned back […]


Some Mothers Really Do Have Them I have a problem with sequels, especially those that succeed very successful forebears because they many times go burst and don’t produce as much magic as their first instalments, while in some few cases, the magic is recaptured and Walah! we have the birth of a successful franchise – all this grammar on top […]


The Morning After SATURDAY, MARCH 15th, 2014. Ogba, Lagos. 12:50PM Funmi opened her door and made straight for her phone that was lying on the table. ‘I’m sorry Aunty, I didn’t mean to waste your time today,’ she said to Ese, who raised her head up from the book she was reading immediately the door swung open. She was sitting […]


The Morning After FRIDAY, MARCH 14th, 2014. Maitama, Abuja. 8:00PM Amaka Obi Ezenwa looked around the room with an air of satisfaction. She smiled as her eyes fell on the boxes close to the walk-in closet, all packed and carefully stacked in preparation for tomorrow’s trip. Marriage is sweet, she reminded herself. It was going to be her second year […]

The Morning After MONDAY, MARCH 10th, 2014. Ogba, Lagos. 9PM Funmi gazed up at her ceilings, thinking about her day. Being pregnant was the last thing on her mind when she had woken up in the morning but right now it was her main pre-occupation. How come she never suspected anything? She had been so devastated by the rape and […]


The Morning After MONDAY, MARCH 10th, 2014. Akoka, Lagos. 9AM Dunni glanced at the wall clock in the class, she knew it was too early to be bothered about the time but she couldn’t help it. She had made up her mind to see Funmi today and was only in class because the first class was Mr Fakorede’s. His classes […]


The Morning After SATURDAY, MARCH 8th, 2014. Ogba, Lagos. 11PM Funmi tapped the end button as she felt her phone vibrate signalling a call. She didn’t have to look to see who it was to know that it was Bode calling. She switched her phone to silent mode as she expected a repeat call and true to her expectation and […]


The Morning After SATURDAY, MARCH 8th, 2014. Isolo, Lagos. 4PM Dunni looked at her phone in exasperation, she had been trying to call Funmi but the calls just wouldn’t connect as her primary line was switched off while her alternate line was dropping calls. She had called earlier in the morning, only for it to ring out. ‘Atleast she should […]


The Morning After WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5th, 2014. Ikoyi, Lagos. 2PM. ‘Bode, this is wrong.’ Dunni said, looking not at all pleased. ‘Why would you record it? For what purpose were you intending to use it for?’ Bode looked rather dis-interested in the conversation as he fiddled with his phone. ‘My break time actually ends by 1:45pm and I’m already fifteen […]


the morning after WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26th, 2014. Ogba, Lagos. 10AM. Funmi lay on the bed sick to the pit of her stomach. She was physically and emotionally drained. Too weak to cry anymore. The walls in her room constantly seemed to be closing in on her or maybe she was just going insane. A tear trickled down her cheek leaving […]


The Morning After FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21st, 2014. Ogba, Lagos. 7PM. Shine bright like a diamond Shine bright like a diamond… The voice of Rihanna broke her concentration as it played out through her phone. She glanced sideways to the sound of the phone on her bed and wished she had magical powers to shut it up. For once, Rihanna’s voice […]


The Morning After SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15th 2014. Somewhere in Lagos. 7AM. Funmi stared at the ceilings in a room she couldn’t recognise. Apart from the rumpled bedsheet, the room looked too organised to be hers. She looked to her left hoping to see her wardrobe but all she saw was a clock hanging on the wall, telling her it was […]


Shit Business is … Funny Business The toilet is a place to shit and not to start making conversations but it beats my imagination when people now mistake the toilet for a gisting point. I wonder why people won’t respect the sanctity of the toilet? I was in the toilet, staring right into a glass and trying to smoothen up […]


This is one piece I can’t help but smile about even before stringing twenty words together .
