About

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.

  1. Hello, I really love your blog, I love history especially pre colonial history (which some think is weird, because most youths arent really into such) and reading your blog has been more than enlightening, sometimes I wish i could go back in time! Could you please post more articles on history of other nigerian ethnic groups, especially igbo, I don’t see much about it. Thank you!

    1. Hello Ama!

      Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving this comment. I’m sorry it took me half a year to respond *facepalm*

      I totally get you, more people need to know how important history is. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time too

      I’d love to post more articles on other Nigerian ethnic groups, what I post depends on what’s available out there in terms of academic research. Because I’m Yoruba, I’ve always given priority to that history and now I look forward to expanding my library. Igbo history is amazing!
