LOUD WHISPERS: The Ultimate Backlash: Sex Dolls

Last year, I watched a short in-flight documentary about a young man in Japan whose sole companion is a life-sized doll. He was shown having meals with the doll, watching TV and lying in bed with it.

LOUD WHISPERS: The Etiquette Of Mourning

I apologise in advance if what I am about to say comes across as a scolding from a school principal to unruly teenagers.

Madele had never been lazy. She was well known for her industry and commitment to everything she laid her hands on.

LOUD WHISPERS: That Letter

A few months ago, one of my young friends on Facebook did a post which read, ‘If you could ask Erelu Bisi Fayemi a question, what would that question be?’. She did not tell me she was going to do it, I just came across the post by chance. By the time I got to […]

LOUD WHISPERS: End of Year Notes

There are many jokes around about the year 2020, calling it the year nothing happened because the world almost ground to a standstill. The year was a bad one for millions of businesses and individuals around the world. Even those who were not affected by job losses or lack of income suffered in other ways […]

LOUD WHISPERS: Precious Gift

LOUD WHISPERS: Precious Gift

One evening in November, I received several WhatsApp messages, drawing my attention to the plight of a 13-year-old girl, Precious Sodeinde. I know Precious very well. Her father Gbenga Sodeinde, a journalist, served in my husband’s administration during the first term (2010-2014) as Special Assistant Media, attached to the State House of Assembly. In December […]
