Nigeria’s Next President and Vice President (Olorun Maje, Chukwu Amankwe Ihe Ojo!)

Hello, I’m sorry about my long absence. My oga’s at work have been on my case and I don’t have internet at home. Anyhow this is mainly directed at those of you in the diaspora. Have you seen the fellas Obasanjo hand picked for President and V. President? Let me look for some pictures of them. Ok, the guy on the far left is Umar Musa Yaradua. He is currently the Governor of Katsina State and the PDP’s Presidential Candidate. This is a man who had no interest in the Presidential Race whatsoever but was nominated by the President barely […]

Lagos Na Wa!

There was a book I came across once titled “Lagos Na Wa! I swear” now as a young teenager (and even as an adult) I had no business reading that book. It chronicled the sex lives of some Lagos people and it was quite raunchy. Now my post has nothing to do with that book, but it has to do with my recent trip to Lagos. I grew up in Lagos and though I am from Anambra State, I consider Eko (Lagos) my home. Most of my cherished memories are here; my first kiss as a 3 year old in […]

2007! My Year of Power and Glory! …(and my year of no house-help issues)

Now I know this is long overdue, it’s been a while since I have had internet access so y’all should forgive me. I think this is going to be a great year for us all. Amen! The thing is, I don’t even know what to write about, now let me think …oh I know …MY HOUSE-HELP! You know how it is, once you have kids, house-help or nanny issues will always come up. I have heard so many horror stories, like one whose 3 year old son was being sexually abused by her 14 year old help or another one who […]

Jesus Take the Wheel!

I almost had an accident recently. Anyone who knows Abuja, knows how wide and smooth our roads are. Anyone who knows Abuja, also knows how reckless and inexperienced our drivers are. I was driving to church and had the right of way when one silly man who thought he could make a fast one almost collided with me. I swerved to avoid him and almost hit a light pole. It was just God that stopped me from hitting that man or the pole. God literally took over because I had already braced myself for an accident. The jolt startled my kids, thankfully […]

Gluttony!

I hardly slept last night! And no, it was not my because of my kids neither was it my husband. It was greed. Sheer greed! My husband and I went out for dinner and it was an all-you-can-eat buffet. I sure ate all… and more! I had fish, chicken, cow leg, pasta, potato salad, soup… as if that was not enough, for dessert, I had a plate full of creme caramel and several other sweets… too much! Well, I spent the night getting rid of all the deadly toxins I had accumulated over the course of the evening. I think […]

Talking ’bout My Hair!

I can so relate to India Arie’s song about hair. Right now I have natchy (nappy) hair and I’m lovin’ it! (Sorry, my camcorder is acting up so I can’t show any pics at the moment) Growing up, I had so much hair! I was one of those children with big thick afro! I remember going to a school which was full of expat children (St Saviour’s, Ikoyi). One Christmas, I acted as one of the angels in the nativity play -actually, I was the only black angel and my co-angels were not too happy to have me as an angel. Why? […]
