Snapshots, Mothers’ Day and the Sadiq Khan Effect
This morning, I felt deeply thankful. In this article, I am going to open a window into my life so you can see why I am grateful and what informs my gratitude. Secondly, I am going to wish all mothers a Happy Mothers’ Day. If you live in the UK, don’t panic, you have not missed it, Mothers’ Day has come and gone in the UK. Sadly, I cannot remember when it happened!
The Curse of House Husbands
I spent the morning reading up and watching videos of the drama that followed Beyonce’s phenomenal visual album ‘Lemonade’. Yesterday, I followed Tiwa Savage’s story and found profoundly touching her interview on Pulse TV.
Ibadan’s Changing Face

A Night Out with Books and Films

The Changing Faces of Marriage
Ireland is the only country in the world to run a referendum on the legalisation of marriage. It appeared that even Catholicism had no hold upon modernists and traditionalists alike in the Catholic country.
An Evening with African Writers
The African Literary Evening was my idea even though I feel I cannot take all the credit for its success. The idea came about from the culmination of several conversations with people over a period of time. The African Literary Evening was an evening of spoken word, poetry recitations, book readings and networking.
