LOUD WHISPERS: Prickly Auntie

LOUD WHISPERS: Prickly  Auntie

Maybe I am turning into one of those prickly Aunties we used to avoid when we were young. The ones who always had something to say about what, when, why and where we said or did something. I am usually quite easy going, even if I say so myself. I don’t believe I take myself […]

LOUD WHISPERS:  Talk and Action

For most of last week and over the weekend, I took part in a number of webinars, television appearances, radio interviews well as Instagram and Facebook live sessions.

LOUD WHISPERS: Present In The Present

If there is one thing I was grateful for during the early days of the COVID19 lockdown, it was the time I had to myself. Due to the fact that I had to go into self-isolation for 14 days because I had just returned from a trip, there was nowhere to go. For two weeks […]

LOUD WHISPERS: Their Children. Our Children

‘There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children’- Nelson Mandela.   I was going through my Facebook page last week, and I came across the story of a woman in Ado-Ekiti who was living in dire circumstances. Shortly after, one of my staff members […]

LOUD WHISPERS: Mercy

LOUD WHISPERS: Mercy

The baby girl is so beautiful. With her eyes closed and a blanket keeping her warm, she looks like an angel. I was asked to give her a name. I named her Anuoluwa – God’s Mercy. Mercy. That is what she has received. Anyone staring at this lovely bundle of joy would never have imagined […]

LOUD WHISPERS: Defending The Indefensible

I was having a conversation with a group of male and female middle-aged professionals recently. One of the men in the group said that feminists like me are always quick to jump to the defence of women, even when they are in the wrong. He said that while he is against any kind of sexual […]
