TALES FROM THE OTHER SIDE

Tales from the other side

The first thing I felt when I was asked to be part of the Tales From the Other Side Anthology alongside Daniel and thirteen other writers was sheer horror. You see, I’m not one of those writers that work fine when the word ‘deadline’ is being thrown about. This is why I don’t do workshops. Daniel and a few other writers […]

LOVE-VOLUTION

Love-volution I saw you and my heart stopped Twas in front of the bank and I got robbed Not of cash bills but my heartbeat And ever since, I’ve been lovesick Tall and caramel coloured Sculptured like an hour glass Turned this sharp man to an obolor But I wouldn’t let this chance pass Spoke my heart in a poem […]

WE'LL NAME HIM ASUU JNR.

Papa ASUU how far? The DJ who was garbed in full Bayelsan outfit had the popular Omawunmi track ‘if you ask me?’ playing as my family arrived. I could see my younger brother mouthing the lyrics of the song as he stepped into the sitting room, his eyes wandering, probably searching for me. Who plays that in a naming ceremony […]

How could I ever forget? Make una make sure […]

The 'BED-ROOM FLAT' Generation

Its a beautiful feeling hearing the sweet shrieks of playful children as they run around the sitting room. I was immersed in this sweetness as I watched my nieces run around with so much energy when it dawned on me that something was wrong. Like gas molecules they just seemed to be zapping around inside a container, they had so […]
