First, we asked you to identify the capitals of all 54 African countries, and you guys killed it. Then, we asked you to identify those same countries by their flags alone, and you struggled a bit.

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 […]
It’s time to sign-out all devices!
There are a few things I’ve never understood – how low-rise jeans ever became fashion statements, how Jim Iyke always wound up with an American accent regardless of what country he visited, how Elisha Abbo remains a senator, you get the picture. Recently, a brand new entry has been scattering all of my brain – […]

Read your bible instead!
You know how they say cheer up, things could always be worse? Well they ain’t ever lie.
