Your Questions On Love, Your Enemy Answered

So yesterday I was sitting down and reading comments from the important notice post I did about IANS and Love, Your Enemy and it hit me that a good number of my readers may be wondering where I’m headed with the new series, wondering if my aim is to put the church in a bad light. I’m sure these same people know that I’m not so into church, and I like to dissociate myself from any of the denominations. Hence, this could be the reason for their mistrust. Lol! I totally do not blame them, though, and so in response to anyone wondering if the story is an ignoble act against Christianity and the church, here’s what I have to say: 1. Like all my other series, I’m simply telling a story. There are going to be villains and heroes and all the juiciness you have in a typical story.…

The Darker Berry #11

Read episodes 1- 10 of The Darker Berry The first time they met she had been sitting across the hall from him, her red lips igniting the dimly lit room. He’d stared long and hard at her until she turned, conscious of being watched. He’d raised a glass, head slightly bowed in salute but she’d ignored him, her pretty brown eyes focused on the man before her. Sho, they had called him. The guy she was currently with and the only son of an Oil mogul. Sho was the type of man girls like Susan dated, the type of man guys like him couldn’t take a girl from. But he had fallen fast and hard for her from the very moment his eyes caught hers. He had wanted her and so, the power to ‘unlook’ had not been left to him. “I was saying hi to you the other time.”…

IMPORTANT UPDATE! The Return Of IANS, Newsletter Subscriptions And Other News…

Good morning, dears I just want to leave some quick messages. I have a lot of people asking me about It’s Another Novocaine Saturday lately. It actually makes me feel sad that you guys are doing this because I took my time to give detailed explanation as to why I started the story in the first place and how I’m putting a break on it. I did not promise to bring it back immediately and I clearly stated that I am starting two new series. It upsets me that I have to repeat myself. It’s like I’m wasting my time leaving important information. Some people choose what they read and ignore the rest. Even when I put the notice before any new episode of a series. Please, I am begging you to take every single word here seriously. Every post that is put up here, asides the series, is very…

Love, Your Enemy #4

Read Previous Episodes of Love, Your Enemy The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places… Psalm 16 “Ah! Relax, Alice.” “You want to cry? It’s not that serious nau.” Aunty Shade left the bed to where Alice sat and put her arms around her. “Relax, my dear. You’re not in a courtroom.” “We just wanted to know if you had honest intentions towards our father,” Aunty Ayo explained. “It’s not a crying matter.” Alice was nowhere near tears, but her face must have said different. Having held her breath for so long, she felt like she was going to pass out. She had been unable to give the sisters any answer and so she sat glued to her hot seat, sweating through almost every pore of her body and praying that by some miracle, she would appear on her bed back at home, waking up from a…

Love, Your Enemy #3

The time was 7am. The day was Sunday. The venue was Alice’s home. And the topic of discussion was Alice’s relationship with Papa.

In attendance were Wemimo, Tara, Alice herself and Pastor Adindu, who was not a stranger to the ladies.

Love, Your Enemy #2

Read Episode 1 of Love, Your Enemy For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. -Matthew 6 Alice picked out the embarrassing sound of her rumbling stomach rumble. She also felt a prickly sensation in her armpits as the atmosphere around her suddenly turned warm. Her mouth seemed to lose the bulk of its saliva as well. An instant headache hit the side of her head, causing her temporary blurriness. She clutched her iPad with both hands to get a grip on herself but her troubled stomach worsened, leaving her no choice but to hurry out of the church as the senior pastor was just about to deliver the day’s sermon. Dropping her iPad with her best friend, Wemimo, who was seated beside her, Alice sought the nearest exit and sped towards it. The pastor’s voice over the PA system irritated her with each step.…

Love, Your Enemy #1

I promised to post this on the 4th but I just couldn’t. Something happens to me when I start off with new characters. I take my time to feel them, even after writing them. I guess the ‘feeling’ time was not enough. I needed just a few more days. I apologize for raising your hopes up and bashing them. But I’m making up for it with two episodes, and also because it’s Women’s Day. Enjoy the first! Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. -Psalm 23 Najib was solid as a rock. Dependable, calm, collected and trusted by his boss to keep things together when all else was falling apart. He could be snatched out of bed in the middle of the night and thrown into the midst of a world war, and yet would somehow come out unscathed;…

Enticing Excerpts From New Series

Hi! Without much ado, I present to you delicious excerpts from two new series that would be featured here, written by yours truly. The first is Stranger in Lagos. It chronicles the life of Halim, a young lady that has her life spinning out of her control after an encounter with some guy in a hotel in Lagos. The second, titled: Love, Your Enemy is about Pastor Love, a widow to a popular pastor in Abeokuta who gets married to another Pastor in Lagos and has to face church drama she has never experienced in her life. Love, Your Enemy aims to reveal what happens behind the pulpit and also exposes the secrets that many pastors hide from their members. It’s also a story of love, forgiveness and redemption, showing you that although man makes his plans, God always executes his purposes. This is a story I have always wanted to write…
