15 for 15 challenge – love at first sight

   I remember the first time I saw her, our grandfather had died and she came to Papa’s house with her parents and sisters. My mum and I had travelled down earlier than my dad and brothers, and I was pretty lonely and very bored because everyone was preoccupied with burial arrangements.

Lyrically- Great nation

Today’s another presidential election, another opportunity to take our destiny in our hands. There’s tension in the land and a sizable section of Nigerians do not believe the electoral process will be free from major irregularities. The politicians and their followers seem desperate and we can hear the rumbles of distant trouble.

Just to be with you again

“Just To Be With You Again”
So I still walk on through the night and through the rain
I would give it all
Just to be with you again.
It’s a lonely road
For my heart is still in chains
But I live my life just to be with you again.

We have walked together where angels go
And we found a place inside us that only we could know
So I still walk on through the night and through the rain
I would give it all
Just to be with you again.

That’s the way life goes
Like a whisper in the wind
But I take that fall
Just to be with you again
Can I find a reason
Can I find a way
Cause the words I need to tell you
Are the words I didn’t say.

So I still walk on through the night and through the rain
I would give it all
Just to be with you again.

I see you standing in the doorway
With that looks in your eyes
And the feeling that I feel will never die.

So I still walk on through the night and through the rain
I would give it all
Just to be with you again

Well that’s the way life goes
Like a whisper in the wind
I would give it all
Just to be with you again
It’s a lonely road
For my heart is still in chains
But I live my life just to be with you again.

For Nnamdi Isiguzo 14/01/1963 – 27/03/2007… Son, Brother, UNCLE, Husband, Father and Friend. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss you, I hope you approve of the woman I’ve become. You weren’t the hearts and flowers type and probably would wince at this…

I love you dedem… always.

Daddy’s pet

In a few days, Nigeria will be holding her presidential elections. The battle for the soul of the country, victory in the election is fierce for the two front line political parties. Unfortunately, I won’t be voting in this elections even though I possess a PVC. I registered in Edo state and I’m therefore ineligible to vote in Lagos. It is possible to transfer your PVC if you relocate but the steps in the process are tedious and time consuming.

Ancient hymns – God give us Christian homes

    When I was in the university, I joined the chapel’s choir and one of our duties as choristers was ministering during weddings. I must have attended dozens of wedding services because they usually held before our choir practice which was fixed for 3pm, it was also a chance to eat wedding jollof rice and Coca Cola without the tedium of dressing up… This woman’s fashion sense leaves plenty to be desired.

Lyrically – Coat of many colours

   Last Sunday was Mothering Sunday in the Anglican communion and I’ve started several posts to celebrate my mother but I’ve never been able to complete any of them. You see, my mother isn’t just “the best mother in the world”. She’s an enigma, impossible to describe, impossible to decipher. One thing I can confidently tell you about my very beautiful mother is that she loves music, my love for music comes directly from her.
