The day Nigeria gave me the final F**K YOU…I have tried so hard against all odds to believe in Nigeria. I have maintained my stance as a patriot. A very extreme tough task considering I have the Obsessive Compulsive Disease, I love to plan and plan and plan and love to see everything in apple pie order, everything working as it should be. The planets revolving around the sun on a pre-set axis, I am a son of God, a child of perfection. I expect, believe and hope for perfection. Somehow (Maybe because of my ruthlessness in my former life as Lestat or so) I was born to Nigeria, the worst place for an individual who craves order. There is nothing but chaos, pure sublime divine chaos here. Continue reading

They didn’t all come to kill and destroy; some of them came with good intentions. Some came to share in our humanity, to speak in our tongue, to share in our pain.

Mary was born on the 2nd day of December, 1848 to alcoholic cobbler Robert and skilled weaver Mary Slessor. Mary Slessor The II  or Mary Slessor Jr. if you like grew up in the slums of Dundee and learned to work at the early age of eleven. At a time when there was no penicillin, Mary lost her father and two brothers to pneumonia.

Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu (Ikemba)

I never met the great man, he hasn’t done much to offend me save for picking super model Bianca for companionship and snubbing his mates (How could Feminists miss that?)…All opinions I have about him are formed by events and stories I have heard-history, documentaries, newspapers, elderly mouths…Every time I hear Ojukwu, I hear the Biafran War, I hear Civil War, I hear 1967-1970…Funny when I hear Gowon, all I actually think is ‘Nigerian’s past president’…Before we get to meet the man- Ikemba Ojukwu, Let us go through the legacy he left us, how it happened and what I think, perhaps know, sparked events… Continue reading
