On the road, a woman is walking along with her young son . She continually berates him as they walk :
"You are an empty child and you will never amount to anything ", she says.
This child will eventually grow up to become empty as cursed, and same mother will again wonder why this has happened to her .
From her own wretchedness It is easy to see that she's probably had sufficient practice prophesying same into the empty life of her husband.
Woman; the tongue has the power to give life and to give death. Choose life. Prophecy good things into your home,

The Interrogation

This is a "protest" story I wrote in 2006 in London. It is as usual a surrealistic satire , one which marked an important turning point in my literary pursuits-a resolute farewell to literary agents. I am posting the story here on social media for one month only , before it is taken down and...

The Essential Wisdom of Following Your Heart and Dream

Life is more about the journey through, and not the destination; this is what Paulo Coelho’s novel, The Alchemist appears to say, in an admirable way. However, this was nearly an annoying book to read. Not because it was a bad story but just because you feel the prose could have been more...

The Lagoon People - a true story

In the far distance a bonfire thick with black smoke from the incinerating rubber tyres. Behind it, half-clad caricatures wildly gesticulate their defiance of the advancing line of policemen. Between the two opponents lay a destroyed taxi cab – its tyres ripped off for the bonfire fuel, an...

The nakedness of a man faced with the absurd

I have just finished reading The Stranger a novel by Albert Camus , borrowed from the rich collection of my dear sister Mimie Oshodin. I actually thought it was a silly little book ; nay a nasty little book. The story is quite annoyingly simple. There is this guy Meursault , quite more than a...

On February 14 2015 an important football match will be taking place between Chelsea and Arsenal ... hey scratch that, I mean Nigerians will vote between General Buhari and Dr. Jonathan for president. Okay not that it makes a lot of difference what the event is anyway. To the supporters of...

Denge's Last Stand ?

They could hear the whack-whack sound of the helicopter as it circled overhead. He could also hear the occasional whoosh and scream of the fighter jets. Much nearer was the grinding sound of the armoured tanks as they approached. Once every two minutes or so a burst of machine gun fire ripped...

Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.

The Prime Writer - advertisement for myself

It often occurs to me that if I hadn’t become a writer, I could have become an itinerant preacher or a terrorist. Since I could remember, I and the world have been engaged in a crisis of distrust. I think though that the balance of the fury tilts convincingly in my favour. I have always been a...


My small colony of giant African land snails already laying eggs and also making an awful amount of poop. Don't be deceived, they are all hiding , clinging to the underside of the tank cover and only come down in the night to play and EAT. An adventurous one is about though - caught on camera....

The presidential pilgrimage

Haba this kain pilgrimage na wa sha. It even permits you to be abusing your enemies from far away. :D


Soul Sacrifice - (Immortal Invisible God Only Wise -hymn)

To all life Thou givest, to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish, but nought changeth Thee.

Fridge Connect

New fridge suddenly decides it prefers to be a freezer, Consequently a dozen cracked frozen eggs. Now, hard frozen eggs are never as table-ready as hard boiled eggs. Any quick recipe for frozen eggs ? *phew*
