MY LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT

Last week a potential business deal went awry. It started off so promising that it came as a surprise when we got to the ” not talking to you” stage.  Then it hit me: I understood what “suddenly” actually means. No warning and everything changes and that is what precisely happens to us all in life. There is nobody that had not been affected by “suddenly” no matter how innocuous the situation was.  Despite the experience of “suddenly” and seeing other people’s experience we fall prey to the aftermath. Yes, even “suddenly” falling in love can be avoided. Just look at the mess people become after it ends. Shouldn’t that be enough of a siren? But noooo, we prefer to believe bullshit like,...

THIS CRAZY THING CALLED LOVE

Let’s get it out of the way; I don’t believe in love. Frankly speaking, if you ask me to explain what I mean, I wouldn’t be able to put it in words. That’s the beauty of the whole thing. While people explain that “love is a feeling, you feel that you’ve never felt before” or something cliche like that. ( people tend to feel like that at least twice in their lifetime!). My inability to explain my disbelief feels pretty much the same way; inexplicable. Lust is what we mostly define as love anyway; you know” that feeling that you’ve never felt before”…..( that you will feel again and again and again before you die). In our (adopted) culture, many of us idealize love. We see it as some lofty cure-all...

HUMAN TRAGEDY

Love is one of the emotions of the human race that can only be termed as a tragedy. It would seem that every single person who has the “fortune” of being born must either long to encounter love, encounter love, then be destroyed or controlled by it. The seemingly most unfortunate ones are those who will not even ever experience it despite longing to. There is a group that are the most unfortunate; those who live in fear of the emotion that they become paranoid hostages and deprived individuals. I have no idea what love is; whether it exists or in what form. Its very nature has even been broken down into various kinds of love to show you its unstable character! It is one thing in a certain realm and a totally different thing...

OPEN LETTER TO DAME PATIENCE GOODLUCK JONATHAN

Good morning Mama P, Kai! It is a great pleasure to write to you. I actually struggled with which language to use. Then I scolded myself for being so silly. Of course a former permanent secretary can read English! I am sorry I had judged you based on your speeches. That’s the problem with us human beings always judging a book by its cover! I don’t know why they keep on laughing at your English. Don’t mind them as if most of them can speak any better. Infact I have challenged a few to step up to the plate and run for President so that we can have better people in power but noooo they all prefer to be spectators and they won’t go out and ensure credible people are elected either. You just can’t satisfy man sha. I tire. ...

THIS VALENTINE BE AS SMART

There is no ‘love’ for Valentine this year. The normal advertising gimmicks are just not there. Even food seasoning companies would have jumped on the bandwagon and come up with how Maggi or Knorr cubes can be your Val! The decor in shops are not encouraging at all, very lack luster. Politics and the future of the country has dominated everything. Even the salons are agog with politics. Rightly so. The way we have taken Valentine’s Day, yes, for those expressing ‘shock’ at my insistence on Valentine’s Day during this serious period of our Nation’s history; Valentine’s Day is as serious. For what it is worth, it keeps the engine of the second most important institution in the world warm…well… Ladies,...
