Talk of Creativity👍🏼…

That moment you are caught in between your love for a dress (and not wanting to let go) and the discomfort you have from the style cut of that same dress.  I got on the queue after buying my ticket at the Ojota BRT terminus only to notice this ‘yellow’ babe right in front of…

Aanuoluwa!!!🙆🏼

I rode in a tricycle with a happy-go-lucky toddler. She was so excited that she couldn’t keep mute. I imagine just how she would be in the bath tub!😀.  It got to a point I was scared she might just hit her head or slip. As if the mother read my mind, she put her…

Bend Down Select✌🏾️

That moment you’re about boarding keke marwa to your destination and you hear “I don come o’.  That was the voice of a trader.  Hmmmn! I couldn’t but take a snapshot. Bend down select! It’s a long time coming in this clime.  May God help Nigeria. And to think that some people actually do prefer…

Street Light at noonday!

It was weird seeing the streets light on this noon. I however was grateful it is functioning. I have a dream that one day, the streets and homes in Lagos and indeed Nigeria will experience constant supply of electricity. It will no longer be a luxury! #theyellowglow #claybusstop #Oregun

My Law Abiding Dad!

That’s how my father, having spent so many years in the States came home some weeks ago. Having encountered Lagos life he became weary of the characters and behaviours on the streets. Hahaha. So it was on this very day at the MM2 airport road, wanting to make a crossing from one side of the…

Hello Cooper!

Whaoza! I saw this cutie called ‘Cooper’ some days ago but couldn’t get a good pic of that interesting part of the ‘babe’! Then some minutes ago, Tokunbo Akintola posted it online and i’m so praying for him right now. The makeup artist in me calls this ‘headlight with lashes’ Oju Cooper nsoro. Some guys…

free ride with strings attached

That moment when you prayed for a shuttle and a free ride came along. When the car owner beckoned at me, I quickly mentioned that we are two. He replied “that’s fine”. We got in and said our thanks. Getting to the Estate gate, I perceived he would have taken me farther if we weren’t…

‎drivers mentality‬

It is high time manufacturers began to think of ways of incorporating shock absorbers in tricycles. It was a painful experience for a pregnant woman when the driver of the tricycle I boarded did not exercise enough patience to drive at a tolerable speed. He kept getting into pot holes so much that the woman,…

Air Freshener

I was in a shuttle waiting for it to be filled with passengers when I noticed the driver wiping his dashboard and mirror (both rear and side) with an air freshener (block type). I thought it was weird, so I asked the driver,

drivers also do

I have now officially concluded that it’s not only writers who suffer from ‘blocks’; drivers also do! Or how do you explain a situation where you continuously reiterate ‘o wa’ ‘o wa’ but still get to be taken past your bus stop. The first cab driver did not hear me say I want to get…

Marie wasn’t bad afterall.

It was time to go home. Usually it will take an average time of 15 minutes for one to get a shuttle out of GRA in Ogudu. If one is lucky enough, one might get one as soon as one get to the stop. My colleague and I had barely spent 5minutes when she sighted…

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

‘…We ought to obey God rather than men.’Acts 5:29 AKJV Too often our actions are dictated by a misguided need to please others. We care so much about what they think that with every step we take we look over our shoulder to see whether they’re smiling or frowning. Understand this: if you’re always looking…
