We are living in insane times. When I’m not thinking about the fact that coronavirus might just wipe out half the world’s population, my mind drifts to more mundane things. Like when next will I be able to get a pedicure or get my hair done? Turns out I’m not the only one. Amidst all […]
Nigerians love their rice. If you watch the top ten YouTube tutorials of any Nigerian food blogger it will at least four rice dishes. Even though we are constantly finding new ways to reinvent rice, these rice dishes remain staples in most parts of Nigeria. I’m usually not one to pit a couple of bad […]
This week I talk to a 20-year old lady who in her own words ‘just wants to vent’. Hi there! I’m not sure if this is an actual problem. Especially right now. It’s like there are people dying o Funke* and this is what you are talking about. Lol, I haven’t even asked anything yet. […]

There are quite a number of birth control options for women in the world today. From IUDs to the pill, to patches, in theory, there’s something for every kind of woman. This week we speak with a woman who has seen them all and tried them all and only has one thing to say, “It […]

Seriously, even tea.
A lot is currently going on in the country. Then again a lot is always going on. There is no light, traffic is insane and public office holders are going around slapping tax paying citizens. Reading about how you can help make this tiny corner of the planet we live in still livable in the […]
