  5. JK says:

  6. Happiness says:

    Very nice dear, keep it up

  7. Brownie says:

    Well done Jumoke. This is very good.

    When does Kola get what’s coming to him?

  8. Chinyere says:

    Great job, Jumoke. Please keep it coming. Boda Tony should be gentle o, we are fragile.

  9. Akua says:

    Please, please let Tony come his sense before he acts like the man who fathered him. Kenny should say something to stop don’t Tony before he regrets his action. I hope with Pastor John’s secret burden in the open he and Lola can form a stronger bond with not secrets. Ei! Kola, Kola! Why has he destroyed many lives with his perverted way. He needs to face the heavy had of the law wherever he is. Awesome episode. I wish I. will read to the end. Hmmm! I shall patiently wait for the next episode. Please don’t make us wait too long. Thanks for another good one.

    • JK says:

      You want John and Lola to form a stronger bond? How? Bond of rape and physical assualt?

      I don’t get it.

    • Akua says:

      I am not making excuses for Pastor John bottling things up rather than address the main issues could possibly the cause of his temper. What I picked up from his conversation with Lola was him feeling in adequate and inferior to him and use control to express him manliness although a wrong approach.

  10. turban girl says:

    No, John’s simple apology is not cutting it for me, and if it is cutting it for Lola, then she is the coward. Dude broke her head, and was still vexing after that, nahh, he should be getting more help than talking to the Pastor. Jumoke, mind smashing as usual!

  11. Kemi says:

    Hmmm, i wish Tony can just control himself as this will just cause a strain in their relationship. They need to talk first jare. As for that John, i sha don’t like him. Thanks Olajumoke.

  12. adebayo says:

    Hmmm, that Uncle Kola needs to suffer.
    I wonder how Tony’s life is gonna pick up again….accusations of rape usually stick in the minds of people even when the accused is proven innocent.

    Nice one Jumoke..

  13. Jay says:

    E be like say the story don dey wrap up o. So it took almost losing Tony for Kenny to give herself brain. She is lucky. Smiles…… John i admire your courage for telling your secret willingly. Way to go man.

    This their spiricoco family sef. So much secrets. But what does one expect from a family trying to stay together in a strange land.

    Olajumoke my namesake, weldone. Who knows maybe we would meet one day. I certainly would like to eat kokoro and eko with you.

  14. Zeeniey says:

    Chai! Uncle Kola o… Nice one

  15. Erinayo says:

    Nice work olajumoke

  16. Just Dotun says:

    Jumoke ooo.Uncle Kola should be castrated and foced ro work at the mines for life, kilode. Abeg Tony and Kenny should work out their issues. Lola needs to tell her husband the truth and move on with her life joor. John will be fine.

  17. Toyenlon says:

    Interesting as usual, welldone.

  18. Gift says:
