A Poetry Reading To Remember!

I'm very happy to say that I had my first poetry reading yesterday, and it was wonderful. This took place at the Lyght Investments Group book swap event here in Abuja.

Education: WAEC, JAMB and all that jazz-Part 2.

   Read part 1 here! The lop-sidedness of my grades continued when I (finally) got admission into the university (thank you JAMB!).

I have been a Kanye West fan since I heard and watched the video of his song called 'Through The Wire' which was released back in 2004 (you can watch the video here: Kanye West-Through The Wire. ). Despite my concerns about his recent behaviour and utterances, I will choose to dwell on his positive... Continue Reading →

Being Nigerian: 3 Random Thoughts.

  Poor Customer Service (bank edition). Let me set the scene for you. You walk into a bank and make a beeline for the Customer Services desk. You meet a lady seated there; she is typing and staring at the screen of her computer. 'Good Morning', you say. 'Good Morning', she replies; her eyes never... Continue Reading →
