Katchy and married Igbo women – Omalicha Nne

Welcome to Facebook where everybody shuns out conclusive experiments without NO facts to back it up! We are all intellectuals on here, forming we know it all and stereotyping all the way. We type serious something without watering it down by at least adding ‘some or most’ to it   Yesterday Aunty with quadruple experience in married Igbo women matters dropped her atomic bomb ‘truth’ on her wall, she wrote “I have noticed something prevalent among-st Igbo women. They are more likely to be married to men they don’t love…

Strains Of Yawa -Justin Muodebelu

This is probably fiction if you think it is. You were there. Inside freedom park, seated with Munachim, Nk and Okwukwe. Depression was worming its way through your mind, clouding every sense of humour in you. Yet, you found a way to smile when Muna asked why his chicken tasted bland and then you used the word Marinate instead of soak. The chicken wasn’t marinated. When they left, you picked your book and moved to the seat by the shrubs, staring into blank space. Pain was everywhere. You could feel…

Oga Nnamdi: missing in action?

When it comes to the Biafra matter, I’m in charge of saying all the “ I Told You So” in the book, because for as long as we have had this column, and even a good deal before, I have been screaming this from the top of my voice, from street corner and rooftop alike, telling people not to put their faith in someone who claims to be fighting and agitating for the separation, or rather secession, of one region from a country but still retains citizenship of another, very…

PRE-TEENS HAVE NO BUSINESS ON SOCIAL MEDIA – Ette Eketi Edima

See enh, there’s a new modern age kind of parenting that ‘ayam’ not understanding. The kind that allows a child below fifteen to have an internet-enabled phone, with little or no supervision. I don’t understand it. I am no parent, and I wouldn’t presume to advise any parent on how to be better at what they do. The other day though, I came across something that made me question a parent. In between work and errands, I usually flip through Instagram and see what’s the latest scandal on Instablog9ja or some…

Have you Registered?

I was in a bus yesterday, on a long trip that has absolutely nothing to do with the title of this piece, save that it was where I met the people who gave the opinions that prompted this writing. That, and the fact that it has been a while since I communicated with you, my good people. Blame it on the tempests that have plagued my personal life of late. Not that it is any of your business, of course, but I am Nigerian, and like many of you, I…

Things you give up when you enter a bus in Lagos – Justin Ebuka

There are a lot of things you give up when you enter a bus in Lagos. Taking a bus in lagos rids you of the choice of accepting them. One, you give up your personal space. People can pass stuff in-front of your face, sneeze, cough and rub your skin as they like. The elderly man beside me chose to flick the contents of his nose digging towards my face and I just didn’t know what to say. To avoid the usual “you don’t have respect”people, I shot him a…

Reorientation, a must for the armed forces

I am in a city in Nigeria, in a house I call home, watching the video of officers and men of the Nigerian army brutalizing youths in an exercise that took place along Aba Umuahia expressway. The young men, shirtless, are made to lie flat on the dusty floor, and then in a puddle of mud by the side of the road, presumably as punishment for being sympathizers or members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, the pro-biafra movement spearheaded by Nnamdi Kanu. At first the video had all the…
