I am just a weird Nigerian woman trying to navigate this world. I write, not as much as I would like to sha. I am a voracious reader with a penchant for ebooks and speculative fiction; a history geek (in particular West African herstories); a “global beats” enthusiast; a feminist and an aspiring globe-trotter.
I am an ex-lover of Korean pop culture (few of my long term readers would have predicted this but it is a long story that I will reveal to the world one day inshallah). And to all the haters who may be rejoicing that my eyes have finally “opened”, I still listen to Korean indie and watch loads of Japanese dramas and movies (currently watching: Naomi & Kanako, current fave: Ikuta Toma). At the same time 2014 was the year that I grew obsessed with kizomba and zouk. People are allowed to have diverse tastes.
I have spent most of my life in Nigeria as someone with a reasonable amount of privilege that comes from a reasonably wealthy background. As can be expected the perspective I write from is Nigerian with considerable Western influences, still for the most part Nigerian. Keep this in mind while in my space. I also do not tolerate any form of homophobia, transphobia, this is and will always be a LGBTIQ friendly space.
