Who would believe that I’m still a virgin? Two months into a marriage!
I hate queues, especially when most of the people in the queue are unruly. It’s a punishment. I was punished with queues in uni, I was punished with queues in NYSC camp, and I’m being punished again as I queue to get registered for my voter’s card. Why go through all this stress to…Continue Reading “5 Kinds of People in a Queue”
Maamuuduuuu!” “Mamuuduuuuuu!!! Come ooo!!!” “Why are you shouting? I’m right here.” I don’t understand why the woman has to shout.

Is your name such that few people ever get it right? Mine is! In fact, I started spelling my name as Korayday rather than Korede, so people could see how it’s pronounced. My name got murdered by Igbos so many times that at a point, even I started to mispronounce it myself. You know what…Continue Reading “CALL MY NAME – EP 2 – YORUBA IGBO MUSLIMAH – ENARRATE VERSION”
