A TALE OF TWO WOMEN

Atinuke was sweating as usual when she got back into the office. She had complained two weeks ago that the air conditioner in her car wasn’t cooling effectively anymore. It was safe to assume that it still hadn’t been fixed. She barely had sat down when our supervisor walked into the office. She was certain he had it in for her; the Universe had been kind to her once more. It wasn’t my business why Atinuke always came to the office harried but today something piqued my curiosity. I noticed what must have been palm oil stains on her blouse and what looked like flour in her hair. She was oblivious. So I made it my business. This was no way for a Customer Service Executive in a prestigious firm to look. When she burst into tears, I remembered...

WHO IS A PROSTITUTE?

Someone(the someone being a man) coined a word “prostitute” and defined it as” a person, typically female who performs sexually for payment”. Another definition even adds two more names that further express the intent of the acts; a woman who engages in sexual intercourse for money; whore; harlot.” Great; now that we know what the definition is, who is a prostitute in practice. I have grown increasingly tired of men hurling the word at us in rage as the ultimate insult and debasing of a female. The day that a man ventured to call me a prostitute was the last time he did and it was the last time I viewed it as the ultimate insult. For him to know or perceive I was a prostitute, he had either encountered a few of them...

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. ...

TOPIC: FIVE: THE IN-LAWS

Though I had mentioned them a little in topic three, I thought they deserved a whole write up. The in-laws are a special breed of people. When a man and a woman get married, they both bring in their families; nuclear, extended and adopted. While it is a given either party has stories to tell, the woman has the most colourful stories. Now when a woman enters the fold, for some strange inexplicable reason, she becomes enemies with people she barely knows. She fights for her life till the very end. Now both parties fail to realise that they are all strange bed fellows in this new epic movie called marriage; that she got into their circle by marrying a complete stranger called ‘their’ son and boy; is he precious to them! Never did they oh so fight...

THE BEAUTIFUL MONSTER CALLED SEX

THE BEAUTIFUL MONSTER CALLED SEX

This is a topic that captures everybody’s attention, yet it is the one subject that is shrouded in hypocrisy, deceit, lies, indiscipline, selfishness and irresponsibility. This is simply put. An act that was created to bring the most intense pleasure and bring forth human life has had the very essence of it destroyed. We are gradually turning into a Sodom and Gomorrah. They were thought to be the top range of depravity but they will blush at some of the acts we have perpetrated and are currently engaged in. Now we have the following forms of the beauty that was: indiscriminate sex, underage sex, sexual abuse, paedophilia, necrophilia, rape, marital rape, sexual harassment, perversions, sex slavery, sex trading and crimes of passion these are the current faces...
