CategoryA Day in the Life of a Freelance Writer

Performing on Radio


This post is long overdue, as what I am writing about actually took place on the 7th February 2015. I would have written about it earlier, but I was waiting for the audio file – and now I have it (thank you Chichi!). The 7th of February was a particularly exciting day for me because I had been invited to come on radio that day, on not one but two radio stations – Metro Fm 97.7 @ 10:45 am and...

Women Arise!!!


Yet another INCREDIBLE event from Freedom Hall is coming up this week! WOMEN ARISE – A music and poetry event that is catered to and all about us!!! Guys you are welcome to come, but be prepared to receive some smack from the poets (myself completely included) Yes I am performing this Thursday and I am freaking out inside. I know it is not my first time, but I am always afraid; and the last...

The Time Has Come


I believe the time has come for me to move on from this blog. I’ll certainly miss it, but I am trying to manage too many sites at once, and not managing any of them all that well. So I had an epiphany – what if I combined some of my sites into one mega cool site. I think there is a way to transfer my subscribers to my new website, but if there isn’t I’ll put up the details...

The Testimony


I have never been one to write testimonies down. There isn’t any particular reason for this, I just hadn’t thought of it. But now it seems like the wise thing to do. Sometimes we forget to be grateful – grateful for our hot meals, grateful for our shelter, grateful for our good health, grateful for the love we have around us etc. We remember to complain or to feel sorry for...

Young and Cerebral Essay Competition


Oyinkansola the Judge…Yup! I like the sound of that! Young and Cerebral in their justified concern for the youths of Nigeria and how detached and uninformed they are of their culture, their language and their history, have put together an essay competition… The Essay Competition is an initiative of Young & Cerebral, a youth development platform that raises awareness on how young...

Once upon a time…


It’s been a long long time since I have posted. Approximately two weeks. But I have an excuse – I’m trying to become Lara Croft and it is wearing me out physically. I have also been caught up in weddings, work, love, hate, more work and attempting to tidy up my ever chaotic room. Nevertheless, I have to remember that writing is a priority for me. When I finished The Men She...

Diary of a Penniless Frustrated Artist


“If you want to really hurt your parents, and you don’t have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio...
