Can We Catch Up?

Some days ago, a video surfaced on major news sites about a group of boys in Kaduna who were making sci-fi short films. These boys from humble backgrounds, armed with a rickety laptop and knowledge obtained from Youtube videos were able to make videos with decent effects and green screen tech. See story HERE

Chief ends up in Jail.

In a Zimbabwean village, a woman was caught in the act of congress under the duvet with a man who was not her husband. Simply put, she was caught having sex with another villager while her innocent husband was going about his daily activities. Continue reading →

The Healthcare Palava.

I had an uncle once, he was my mother’s cousin actually. He was one of my favourite uncles; he didn’t talk much or ask the silly questions that adults like to ask children when they wanted to fill the silence. He had an easy affection for us that didn’t need plenty words and best of all, he always gave us mint notes when he visited. He worked at Central Bank. Continue reading →

It’s Refillable

This isn’t the post I’d scheduled for today, I already have 500+ words of a post titled Anywhere which is a love letter of sorts to Passenger who is a British singer/songwriter. I started it after midnight and wrote until OmoT’s battery heroically gave out after nearly seven hours of writing without power- writing and watching YouTube videos (let me say the truth). My new laptop gives me great joy.

The YouTube videos were research for the post though. Sadly, EKEDC didn’t restore power according to their normal schedule of giving us light from a few minutes past midnight to a few minutes past 6am – you can nearly set your watch by it.
