It's 10.30 pm and Anna (not real names) likes to start her night early, she had already been with one customer today and was ready for her next. Standing at almost 6 feet (1.83 m) tall, she is a beautiful woman. There was this pleasantness about her that I found intriguing.
Her makeup is flawless, not the gaudy colours people imagine prostitutes wear. I expected a hardness that should come from standing by the roadside waiting for the next customer, less than 30 minutes after finishing with the last strange man. But she talks about work and life selling…
My father always wanted a boy. But the boy child remained elusive till the 8th child was born.
Growing up with six sisters was a lot of fun. We would scream and shout when we disagreed.
Usually over different things like someone took another sisters dress to school and comes back after three months without the dress, obviously, because she didn’t want to give it back. Or something as silly as sharing a piece of information that turned out to be inaccurate.
We never lacked comedy and drama, even my parents developed selective deafness whenever we started bickering.
A few days ago, my husband and I were talking about a former friend of ours. Years ago, this friend didn’t show up for his wife’s 30th birthday party because he didn’t approve of the spending.
On the day, it turned out there wasn’t even a proper party. Just a few friends at a karaoke bar. Some drinks and finger snacks. The husband didn’t come even though he was a few blocks away and friends called several times imploring him to at least come and say hello to us. He knew everyone in attendance because we were all friends.

In-law relationships are complicated in every culture. This is because you are not bound by blood but by relationship. It is not easy to be liked if you don’t make an effort. But Nigerian in-laws take the cake when it comes to bending till you break.
5 years ago, Kene’s wife engaged in an affair with someone she met at her NYSC Orientation Camp in Nasarawa State. She thought her husband would never find out because she was far…
For some time now I have suspected that people will unfollow me after I follow them back. Is this a not mere suspicion? Or am I right?
A few weeks ago, I got a slew of followers. I followed them back. Then a few days afterwards I was using the Medium app on my phone and noticed I had fewer followers than I was sure I had.
I really don't care for followers, I am still struggling to write regularly on medium anyway, but this dip was noticeable. …
“I am a foodie so it was easy to transition from a hobby, to passion and now my cooking is a profitable business.”
“I have always loved food. My mother ensured that if her children loved food then they should cook as well. She was what you would call may now call a feminist because didn’t believe in gender roles. Growing up, all of us children cooked and did household chores — boys and girls alike.”
Retired Colonel Francis Okosun was born to a police officer father. His family was itinerant in the early years of his life, moving from…
I agree. Enough with the cancel culture. Its not very helpful in this case. Snow White is not a perfect story, even as a child I knew this.
I observed other people in their cars and passersby looking with varying degrees of lust, disgust, wonder in their eyes as one of the three girls twists and whine, then twerk a little on a sunny Monday morning.
The girls stood in front of what looked like a house, taking pictures of each other. There were three of them, all young and carefree.
They’d stick their tongue out from side to side of their mouth and make funny faces as if they were near orgasm.
They were also dancing to the beat of the silent music only they could hear…
Iniubong Umoren was raped, then murdered by a man who would have gotten away with it if not for social media that helped ferret him out.
Iniubong Umoren turned on Location on her mobile phone. She purportedly told friends and family where she was going. She provided the phone number of the person she was going to meet to her sister. She undoubtedly went in broad day light.
Iniubong properly checked all the key boxes. All the boxes that victims get shamed for not checking. …
Thank you. Yes, I wish more people realize this. But sadly, they think a person who cannot inherit or continue the family name is not of much value. Plus all thwe hardships that women endure.
