What is in a name?

Sitting in the library and I suddenly remembered- I planned on writing a blog today. So, that is what I am doing - writing a blog on my ten minutes break- hopefully it does not turn to fifteen or twenty. What I want to talk about today is names, name-calling and its ambiguities. First, I... Continue Reading →

Four days in Edinburgh!

I have not had a holiday in years. This past year, I used most, if not all, of my annual leave for work experience. I actually enjoy doing this, its a much cheaper form of holiday.

Opinion: The Yoruba Wedding Debate

It happened yesterday when I was scrolling through Facebook. I saw at first a Naij.com post on a Nigerian-Canadian woman who refused to kneel for her husband at their marriage ceremony.

Do challenges make us better?

It has been so long since I last wrote a blog. This is partly because I had so much going on: ideas reeling in my head and endless questions and anxieties. I'm back stronger and ready for new challenges.  I want to tell a story. So, as you know by now, I graduated university young. This is something that I used to not mention, and nobody would have guessed. Then, I went to an event once and my friend...

Africa of my Dreams

Africa of my Dreams Essay Entry Sub-theme: Smart Cities and Urban Development ‘It’s coming…its coming!’ a young boy shouts to his fellow villagers in a Globacom television advert in the early 2000s. I vividly recall the excitement which marked the rise of telecommunications in Nigeria and Ghana. Flip phones and Motorola ringtones were a sign... Continue Reading →
