What Is LOVE?

W

LOVE? I think I know a little bit about this thing. It won’t be the reason I’m still single at 40. I think I know what Love is and it’s not what you think it is. Love is a lot of things but love is not a feeling. It doesn’t operate the law of reciprocity, neither is it earned. Love is an action that requires no input from the loved and demands everything from the lover. Love in all its form is a...

“A CERTAIN DAMSEL”, LEKE ALDER, THE CHURCH AND THE TRUTH

I was going through my feed on Twitter, looking for nothing in particular when I came across a retweet by a friend from Leke Lader #Illuminare series.  I have known Leke Alder for more than a decade already, I have listened to him teach severally and I regularly read his contents, most of which I usually disagree with because they the foundation on which they are built is religion and not...

Trader Moni and the Silver Cycle

T

In an average democratic clime or semblance of it, the election year is always a very interesting year. After the government might have gone to sleep six months after the previous election is won and the juicy offices and portfolio are shared, all parties are usually united in corruption, shaking hands and sharing the commonwealth of the people without rancour, leaving just the few that feeds on...

TRUE YAHOO! STORIES… EPISODE 2

T

True Yahoo! Stories… (UNLEASHED) Apparently, I have been away from here for a couple of weeks now because of that thing they call “Mental Block” or should I call it “Early Life Crisis”? (I’m still very young biko!). I’ve actually been in a secondary purdah trying to figure out a whole lot of me, and how to become a better me lately, a whole world of things creating a whole level of shink in...

True Yahoo! Stories… (Beyond borders) After so many failed attempt attempts to gain admission into UNILAG (even before I wrote that GCE that led to my becoming a Yahoo! Boy), I’d become responsible for myself in so many ways and was already in total consciousness of what it means to be a man. The only thing I probably do at home is wake up in the morning, do my assigned chores, take my bath...

I was involved in a near fatal accident in January 2017. I was rushed to Gbagada General Hospital and was rejected without any form of medical assessment because there was no bed or something, I was told I was conscious but I can’t remember A THING. The same thing happened at Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) until my bosom friend arrived and must have created a scene before a young...

HOW I BECAME A YAHOO! BOY (The Yahoo! Boy) – Part 4 Owning or having a phone in 2001 was luxury, but it wasn’t when compared to having an email account. An email account was more like a global identity but as an Ipaja that was ambitious, I had one when I couldn’t even afford having a one-minute call spill into the next at a call centre because it was billed per-minute, not to now imagine a SIM of...

HOW I BECAME A YAHOO! BOY (The Girl) – Part 3 My becoming a Yahoo! Boy was never planned, it just happened and It was all about her in the beginning, because the moment she came along, she was like the queen bee and everything just happened because of her. Eniola was not the regular average kinda girl you know, she was special in ways you can’t definitely put your fingers on, she was just too...
