HEAVY DUTY

“I’m sorry I can go on with this any longer. It’s not you, it’s me. You deserve way better than this, honestly. The man that will marry you will be the luckiest man on earth.” That was 2016. Bola remembered Richard telling her those words. They had been together for 3 years and were planning for their introduction when he dropped the bombshell. Seeing the love of her life walk away hurt her so much. The pain got worse when he got married to her close friend 6 months after their breakup.

That was then. This is now. Segun is now. Continue reading “HEAVY DUTY”

THE LAST DAY

30th May 2019. Kirikiri Execution Room.

“Any last words?”
I stared at the executioner and my mind started a journey down memory lane. My life of crime started in 2015. After graduating from the University in 2010 and serving in Kogi State the following year, I returned to Lagos with dreams of a bright future. Dreams that became nightmares in no time.

BLOGVERSARY!!

This blog is 3 years old. Wow.

It’s been 3 years since I decided to take the leap and start a blog. My biggest fear before starting was how I would continue. I didn’t want to start and then run out of steam. This is why each Blogversary means so much to me. It is a reminder that the dream is still alive and still blessing lives. Continue reading “BLOGVERSARY!!”

THE WALK OF SHAME

(sequel to THE GRACE TRIP)

On getting to the State House with Dr. Jarex Timothy, I was angry. However, I managed to mask that with a smile. The Executives were surprised to see me arrive with the guest minister. “Uncle, how and where did you meet Doctor?” Before I could speak, Dr. JT answered. “My brothers and sisters, I would like to start today’s message by encouraging us with the story of our General Secretary. He told me he felt a burden for our people at Odeda and he obeyed the leading of the Lord by visiting them. This is a practical example of our theme. WALKING IN THE SPIRIT.”

THE GRACE TRIP

It was August 2015. The 20th day to be precise. A day that I will not forget in a long time. I was a corper then, serving in Abeokuta, Ogun State. We finished CDS early so I got back to the Family House around 11:30am. It was quite unusual. I played Football Manager, ate and slept off. I felt that it would be evening before I woke up. It wasn’t. I woke up, checked the time and it was 12:45pm. Imagine.

I was feeling somehow. To express how I felt is not easy. But I remember I just wanted to do something different. Something…how do I put this? Something…crazy.
