As naked as a newborn, she was lying flat on the sofa with her legs flung widely apart like the surreal gate of hell—the one he heard his pastor preach about the previous week—the one that all sinners will enter through. He was too confused. It’s been a while he had it. The last time was four years ago, and it was with Sandra, his last university girlfriend. He loved her deeply but she broke his heart. It happened just as he was about to leave Lagos for the northern city of Kano to answer the clarion call of the voluntary National Youth Service Corps. She went on to marry a man, fifteen years older than her.

This is the concluding part of the sizzling story, corpers’ den. The moment Corper Tunde started looking at me in a funny manner, I knew it was possible that he would come for me. He would always keep his eye on me in class. Often times, he would call me aside, asking to see my note. Whenever he checked the notes, he would spot spelling errors and correct them, telling me that I needed to improve and that he was ready to go to any length to help me. He would tell me that he was going to teach me…

We continue the story from where we left off last week. If you missed the first part, you can read it here. My crush on Corper Tunde got stronger but I saw myself as too small for him. He was a Corper, which meant that he was a University graduate. I was just in SS2. How impossible it was for us to date. I heard some of the other girls in class even slept with some of the Corpers. One of my cousins, Rachael had been sleeping with Corper George. It was no secret that something went on between those…

The eagerly anticipated rainy season had finally arrived—the period of planting. No able-bodied man would want to sit at home. Everyone that was good enough for the farm work had to wake early in the morning and embark on a journey to the farms. We always had to walk because of the thick nature of the forest route. Just like others, my family’s farm was situated far away from the village’s residential hub of mud huts. It was like a hundred kilometers’ journey. We often went there in the morning and came back in the evening. On the farm site,…

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law last stepped into the roles of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, the Guy Ritchie-directed sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows in 2011. But with the BBC’s Sherlock film now seemingly on the back-burner and Downey potentially more readily available post-Avengers 4, it was recently confirmed that the series is coming back for an unexpected third film, and with the original cast in tow. In an interview granted by Jude Law to Entertainment Weekly, he teased the direction for the sequel – and it looks set to address the time gap. “We hope to…

Here is the continuation of the story we brought to you last week… With time, Gregory and I got closer. We saw each other often since we lived in the same area. But, it was always at my place. I found out that he was seriously broke. It was even worse than I expected. In fact, I used to help him with transport money to work. I was the one that paid when we went out on dates. I didn’t see any reason why conventional roles couldn’t be switched. My mother once told me that what all men wanted was…

I love that Korede Bello song—Mungo Park. But the second verse of the song makes me think about my miserable life: Aunty Patricia Pati Patricia, men have been knocking. Then the next line! Oh, that piercing line! It makes my mind wander to my mother—Sade, when will you marry…? Time is going o. People keep reminding me that I am getting older. Isn’t it a normal thing? Don’t we grow every day? My mother keeps on pestering me. My friends too tease me about my age, but I am not pretty. I don’t have the best figure either. I am…

Names are primarily used to identify people. But as we all know, there is more to them than being just a means of identification. Names reflect our ethnicity, race, gender, occupation and sometimes, social status. There are complexities attached to their usage by other people. Status, age, relationship, etc. determine how other people use our names. In other words, it determines how they address us. Ultimately, culture determines how names are used. And, culture differs in various parts of the world. In some cultures, it is inappropriate to address a person by his or her first name. However, the use…
