5 Misconceptions about IJGB’s in Nigeria

Disclaimer: Everything said from here on out is all in fun.

1. Your accent is fake or you are just putting it on after crossing Murtala Mohammed Airport one time. Or you went to the airport to drop someone off and came back home with an accent.

New year, new me and all that jazz…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!

Every time I start a new blog post (eventually), it starts off with an explanation of why I haven’t blogged and the “I’ll try to do my best and blog more” spiel. I’ll do a bit of the explanation and less of the spiel. Last year was ok but it was not fun. I fell out with the career I had studied my whole life for, because it fell out with me. The amount of job applications I sent out was mad and it was not fun. The responses were either:

Big Brother Nigeria

From left to right: (Top Row): Efe, Gifty, Marvis and Miyonse. (Second Row): Bisola, Kemen, Coco Ice and Bally. (Third Row: Soma, TBoss, Thin Tall Tony and Uriel.

So… who else has been watching?

Enjoy it while it lasts because the morality police are complaining so much and if the sponsors and the network take these complaints seriously, it may be 11 years before we see the third series.

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Big Brother Naija including investigations into the location, sexual activity in the house, infidelity, morality, a pastor cursing the organisers/sponsors of Big Brother and a petition by a Non-Governmental Organisation for the Nigerian Broadcsting Commission to stop broadcasting the show.

They have letters from them to read.

On Becoming by Toke Makinwa

The moment I found out about On Becoming, I knew I had to read it. I guess by its true definition, I am a fan of Toke. Not one of those off the wall crazy fans but I admire her and her career.

To read about what she has endured in her life and how she was able to overcome it was interesting.

Lagos Encounters


Disclaimer: The encounters may not be so great but Lagos is a great place. This post is not to bash Lagos and its people but simply to share some encounters I’ve had in Lagos especially as a sort of newbie.

NYSC was definitely an interesting year for me and the first time that I can say I truly experienced Lagos. I properly experienced Lagos transportation, dealt with agberos/area boys and went to the market randomly. From that year alone, I have a lot of stories.

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017


You may have seen and heard this dozens of times but sincerely, 2016 was not the best year. It’s a contender for one of my worst. Honestly, if I didn’t have my immediate family and a few friends around, it would have been worse than it actually was and that’s not taking into account the major events that happened globally. In comparison with what others went through, I am definitely grateful that it wasn’t too bad.
