The first time I heard of the Genocide against the Tutsi that happened in Rwanda was in July, 2019. Before then, I knew there was something similar to war which had happened in Rwanda many years ago. In my head, I thought it was like the Nigerian Biafra War (or Nigeria Civil War) which I … Continue reading Rwanda: A Divine and Beautiful Story
I woke up feeling nauseous... And no, I'm not pregnant or anything like that. I couldn't place it. It was the first day of me going to school physically in about seven months. It opened the previous day but I had nothing to do there so I went in the following day. I was excited … Continue reading 20/10/2020 – A Dark Night
Hi guys! So I’m really excited to be doing this today. Yaaay! I’m a guest writer on Ozzy’s blog💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼... I’m honestly excited to be writing this piece.

I had an entirely different draft for … Continue reading #My2019Story – Olufolake Onasanya
This morning is a weird one. There was this amazing program I spoke at yesterday but it was so far away from home. Thankfully, there was no traffic. Still, I slept right after I got home like a log of wood till about 3:30am issh. And I just sat on my bed, trying to pray … Continue reading A Weird Morning – Benediction is longer than Mass
I messaged my manager on Skype at some minutes to 4pm as is my daily custom to confirm if his expected deliverable of me that day was same as was in my head. Just so it's not 5'O Clock and I realize I missed a task. I left the office at exactly 5'O Clock and … Continue reading Grateful! My Near-Death Accident Experience
First, I want to say a very big thank you to Ozzy for this opportunity. It’s one that I do not take for granted. Like most people, I don’t think I started 2018 with a long list of resolutions. Primarily, I just wanted to be a better person than I was last year. This year … Continue reading #My2018 – Folake Onasanya
Hello! I don't want to assume we all understand why this is a discussion so I'd explain. In Nigeria where I currently live, there is the societal notion that when you see a single lady living alone and apart from home, she just has to be an omo wobe (a promiscuous lady). I don't know … Continue reading Single Lady: Move out or Stay with Parents?
I have had several people say suggest to me that as a young lady, you should not go all out to chase your dreams so that you do not become 'over-successful' and chase men away. One said to me one day, "Ozioma, why you so concerned about making it young? Better calm down else you … Continue reading “Aunty, Calm Down With Your Dreams! Else You Shall Not Find Man To Marry
I am very very grateful to God for making it possible for my family to see today. Like it has been quite a ride! You see, the cares of this Lagos had made me forgotten about today. I even called my mom to ask her for something. It was after that call my sister texted … Continue reading Lessons From My Parents’ 25 Years of Marriage!
*Sometime in 2016 It was 3:30am... I stretched on my bed smiling like a fish. I sucked some air in between my teeth as I do when I have to do something I don't want to.... "I have to go now, I have work tomorrow..." After many awwwwwns and hahans... He goes: "Okay.... I still … Continue reading My Job or My Lover?!
