Dugo #1

Dugo grasped both plaques with firm hands. She felt their bumpy curves making dents on the insides of her sweaty palms. Her name had just been called again, nominated for the third time. There was applause, and with it murmurings of surprise from the audience. Everyone was shocked that she was getting this much accolades. But why should they? Hadn’t she worked hard for this? Hadn’t she fought her way to the top, sold her soul, and seared her conscience to get here? She deserved this. She deserved more, but… “Und der Gewinner ist…” the tall, blonde woman on stage with massive breasts, an orange tan and a vagina dress announced in German. There was suspense. This was the big one. The award for the best international act. According to some, Dugo didn’t deserve this award. She was a German citizen already. No longer considered a Nigerian. The Venus Awards…

Update On Biyankavitch And Stranger In Lagos

Happy Sunday, guys! I’m having a chill day here, just about to get into the graphics of Dugo before I post up the new episode on Instagram. So, I’m sure a lot of you are wondering about Stranger In Lagos. Don’t wonder too much. The story is very much alive. There is a ‘but’, however. And unfortunately, I can’t give details. Just know that the story will return to you one way or another. In some sense, it’s beyond my power to bring it back now. I’m sorry that I’m sounding cryptic about it. No vex. I can’t say more than this right now. With time, you will hear the full gist. Biyankavitch will finally be made public to non-members. But just one episode at a time. So if you haven’t read it and you want to, this is good news. I suggest you click on this >>> link to…

Dear Writer: Here’s How To Start Making Money

Dear Writer, Here’s How To Start Making Money I can begin and end this with one sentence from my own experience, and that would be: Write books and sell them and voila! You’re making money! The above is the kind of advice you’ll get from people out there who want to tell you how you can become a writer who makes money off selling books. What they’ll never share with you is how to get on the journey in the first place. Well, I’m here and I’ll do just that. But first, let me tell you my own story. Make sure you read through. Your journey must not be like mine, but you can glean a thing or two from what I’ll share. So, I started blogging in 2011, after writing for six years. I opened several blogs on different free blogging platforms, but I finally settled for Wordpress, after…

Biyankavitch #15

I had an appealing proposition for Kashimu. I wanted him to trade off his arms business to Captain. I was to be the go-between. It was hard to say no to my offer when he was appreciating the suppleness of my body. There was no sex, just good old making out, and he was losing his mind. The shipping company he formerly used for the import of his weapons had now gone clean. He no longer smuggled arms. The business disappeared into the blue like it never existed. Well, on the outside, it had never really existed. For those of us who knew, we considered it the work of a mastermind to make it vanish that way. That was how genius Kashimu was. He had told me he would do this, and he did it. No weapons, no trace. Nothing. And yet, the business was up for bid in the…

Biyankavitch #14

Lanre was angry. Justifiably so. I had defied his orders not to go solo by hunting down Shiloh’s men and finishing them off in a three-day job. It wasn’t that I was being directly stubborn; it was that I followed my gut instinct. And it wanted blood, so I did what it asked me to do. “What’s the point bringing my friends together to help you when you just want to do things on your own?” Lanre’s voice was quiet. His anger was presented only in his eyes. “Lanre, you know the plan.” “There was no definitive plan. Just a floating idea, a suggestion I threw into the air.” “You said, ‘it would be nice to clear her crew’ and I did just that. I also baited her.” “And where is she now?” “She’ll come to me.” “How do you know that?” “She will come, Dada. I know.” “You only…

The Moskeda Book Club

So the survey I ran here a few days ago has been completed. I want to thank everyone who participated and for the feedback that I received. Bless you! I will give you the results in a bit, but first, I want to introduce the Moskeda Book Club to you. We’re on Instagram and it’s not yet begun because I’m working on a few things at the moment. I hope to start it off on the first of August. I’m excited and nervous at the same time because I don’t know what to expect. But I’m sure we’ll find our footing. So the Moskeda Book Club is going to be like any other book club, but with a difference. We will read and share our thoughts on what we read and those thoughts would be published as a collective review here on the site. This is to help people catch…

Stranger In Lagos – What’s Next?

I have a special announcement for all my Stranger In Lagos fans. But before that I’d like to drop a word on behalf of the guest writers here. It’s not their intention to start a series and then leave without finishing it. Some of them get caught up with work and have to face that before anything else. Please, bear with them. Now, concerning Stranger In Lagos, I will still need some time. I’m not writing it on the go. Just like the first fourteen episodes, I have to send it to my editor after I am done. And i’m not done :(. The delay is due to the fact that I got dumped with a shitload of work which still has me swamped. The series is a work-in-progress and I will be back with the continuation. I’ll advice that you follow me on Twitter and like my Facebook page…
