My Thoughts on A Broken People’s Playlist

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up A Broken People’s Playlist. I mean, I’ve read a couple of Chimeka’s stories before, but as a rule of thumb, I emptied all expectations and went into it with a fresh mind. So, how did it go? I’d like to let you know that I had an interesting journey with it. Chimeka’s writing is special, and this is because I don’t have adequate words to describe it. His art reminds me of a ballerina who dances like a butterfly, light and sprightly, floating over the surface like she couldn’t hurt a fly. But when you look closer at her legs and thighs and see the power of her muscles, strength and skill it takes to make one fluid movement, you begin to appreciate the work it took to get there. That was how my experience with the book went. A…

Getting Laid

By Martins Toritseju You know how it is as a young guy trying to explore his sexuality, especially while on campus. You put yourself out there trying to get some attention from the ladies. You use all the showmanship in you to get girls to like you. But it’s not easy for a lot of guys; especially the ones who have no clue what to do to win a girl over. For those guys, it’s rocket science to get a girl to even notice you, howbeit be interested in you. And sadly, I was one of those guys. So you should see how excited I was when during the course of our WhatsApp chat, Amaka agreed to come over to my place to visit me that coming Sunday. Amaka was a course mate but I was one year ahead of her in the University, and in my third year. Ever…

The Bro Code #8

Why the hell is Uju calling me, Obi thought, even as he noticed a slight glimmer of suspicion momentarily cloud Pablo’s eyes. Fuck! Not again, he was not going to allow this woman come between he and his friends. Never again! “Guys, I swear on my life, as in, the Igbo don comot for my eye, I have no idea what this is about.” He held his phone up to the sky for the heavens to bear him witness. Ayo looked intently at Obi and then at Pablo. “We know, don’t worry.” “We know? We? You too, Pablo?” Pablo released the eba that had been clenched in his fist, back into the soup. He noticed he had been holding his breath and released it. He smiled at Obi. “That was years ago, I know you don’t have anything to do with it.” He paused. “This is all my fault guys,…

Long Night #9

Read the previous episodes of Long Night by Dexter Tomi rolled off of Segun. They were both covered in sweat. Her chest was heaving, her muscles ached from exertion, but she enjoyed the feeling. They had just finished another hot romp in the sheets. She smiled as she looked at him. The man definitely knew how to show a girl a good time. She reached up and stroked his face. “You are so good.” She said, her voice was dry and raspy. She chuckled at the sound of it. They always did this. They always fucked themselves dry, leaving each other thirsty. They always argued over who was supposed to get the water after sex. She rolled to the other side of the bed and grabbed a bottle of water. They were prepared this time. She took two gulps and handed the bottle over to him. He smiled weakly as…

Long Night #5

Read the previous episodes of Long Night by Dexter “I guess we will be seeing you soon then?” Tomi asked as Daniel opened the car door. She ogled his butt as he dropped and smiled at him when his eyes met hers.  Morayo finished entering her number into his phone and handed it back to him through the car window. She smiled at the man who had quite literally rocked her world just the previous night and early this morning too.  “He had better or I will track him down and kidnap him.” Morayo answered. Daniel smiled nervously as he collected his phone from her outstretched hand. He looked from Tomi to Morayo and cleared his throat.  “With the time we had yesterday, I am pretty sure you own me and little Daniel now. We are at your beck and call, madam.” He left them sitting in the car and…

Where To Find Breasts Postponed

Good morning! There won’t be a fresh episode today, because I have been engaged this whole week. It was an interesting week for me, though. One of those weeks where you want to slap somebody for wasting your time and being a disappointment to you, but at the same time, you want to go on your knees and thank God, because you’re happy and relieved that you dodged a bullet. WTFD #12 is in bits. I haven’t touched it since Monday. I’ll return next weekend. This weekend, I have a family reunion, and I have been busy with the catering part. So, I’ll leave you with a new author today. She will be taking the Sunday spot. Have a great weekend and week ahead!

This Thing Called Love #1

Hi fam! Here’s a new one from Ikenna Igwe. Please read and drop your thoughts. It runs for the entire week! BEFORE I BEGIN my story I’d like to say a few words about love. Yes, it’s a beautiful thing. And yes, being in love with someone who genuinely reciprocates it is nothing short of divine. So, when you do find true love, hold it dearly, nurture it carefully, and, more importantly, treat it with the respect it deserves. It’s true that love hurts. But let’s not forget…it also heals. Here is my story… I was reliable informed, by my parents, that I exited into our planet on a rainy Monday night, in the month of July, in the late 70’s. My mother had just finished eating dinner, and was about to drink a glass of water, when she felt some contractions in her womb. Yes, that was me, poking…

Roses And Thorns #16

‘Roses and Thorns’ is back. I have been away because I have been concentrating on publishing my book. If you want more stories like this, then head over to Okadabooks and search for my two books, ‘Bullets and Roses’ and ‘Fallen Angel’. Thanks for following this story; I have been reading your comments and they are all appreciated. To all Tehilah fans, you rock!                                                *** It was the wedding day of Haliru and Tehilah. The city of Lagos was agog with talks of the impending nuptials. Everyone used Haliru and Tehilah’s pictures as relationship goals. There was no mistaking the intense love Haliru had for Tehilah, it showed in the way he looked at her. He was always caught staring longingly at the chocolate beauty. Tehilah’s dress was designed by Zazi couture, a household name in bridal fashion, with a luxurious flagship store in the heart of Lekki. The dress…
