‘Off The Mic, Honourable Adviser’

But let me get this straight, what do fathers, mothers, aunties and neighbours think when they tell single ladies or guys about why they need to get married and the fact that they are not getting any younger.

LOUD WHISPERS: The Stranger

LOUD WHISPERS: The Stranger

Dapo should have seen it coming. He should have known, the moment she walked into a church for a wedding ceremony ten years ago, that a time like this would come. He had gone to attend the wedding of the daughter of one of his older friends. Just before the sermon was about to begin, […]

What Two Girls Taught Me About Love and Hatred

I love children, anyone close to me enough knows I do, and I respect them a lot. In fact, my plan is to have 1000 children when God’s kingdom comes—what will I be using my energies for then, when everything will be perfect! However, 2 girls ages 6 and 4 as at 2019 (I hope […]

Men We Have a Problem!

E yin daddy wa a ti ni problem o (Our daddy’s we have a problem), before you say I reject it in Jesus/Allah or Obatala’s name, let me conclude. Remember one of my articles where I mentioned a research I carried out, asking around 5000 adolescents about whom they want to die first between their […]

If while growing up, beverages were hidden by your parents and only brought out on weekends, when it rains, and daddy wants to drink tea, or the pot of stew is under the bed closely monitored by either your dad or mom. If during the festive period, the fried meat or chicken are taken to […]

MAKING IT BETTER: No Place Like Home!

I have just come back from spending a little under a month at home in Nigeria. The time went far too quickly and I also chose to spend the time in a slightly different way than I usually do. Ordinarily when I go home I tend to accept almost all and every invitation to a […]

When You Truly Start Counting Your Blessings, Your Whole World Will Turn Around!

Nothing stays the same, everything must change, what goes up must come down, night will turn to day, glass half full rather than half empty and so on. These are all clichés we hear all the time which after a while don’t really mean anything to us; but they are there for a reason. They […]

Women Making It Better For Others…Thandiwrap!

On my daily travels I come across so many men and women making incredible contributions to the well being and lives of others. Sometimes what they do is not recognised or validated because it doesn’t come with much fanfare. In these times of grandiosity, modesty is often ignored; even jeered at and other forms of […]

LOUD WHISPERS: Humour

LOUD WHISPERS: Humour

I was at an event recently and I found myself mentally rolling my eyes as the comedian who had been hired to entertain tried his best to be funny. I always appreciate the efforts of entertainers, I know it is not easy to get up in front of an audience of strangers to sing, dance […]
