The girls and I had settled in and were making our orders when Derin shouted Faraji’s name. I was wondering why she was calling his name till I turned around and saw him walking towards our table. I was extremely surprised because he didn’t say he was going to be here tonight. What am I even saying? We hadn’t talked the entire day so how could he have told me? (more…)

“Nothing is more important than reconnecting with your bliss. Nothing is as rich. Nothing is more real.”I was still recovering from the news of Wangi’s marriage when she excused herself and went outside to make a phone call. I was glad that she was giving me a little space because I was still trying to recover from the lie I had told. I told Wangi that there was nothing serious going on between I and a woman I had almost proposed to a day before. (more…)
“Where there is love, there there is madness.”
“I’m married.” I said to Fa’a.
I watched his face fall in disappointment. I knew he was hoping to hear me say I was still single. I could have easily told him that I was still single because I mean, how would he have known I was married? (more…)
“Protecting yourself from the bluesy is like protecting yourself from the bliss.”
I strolled into the office the next day feeling like a queen. All was right with the world, my man was the best man alive and the way he loved me was even better. I was very sure that wedding bells would be ringing for us soon, seeing as we couldn’t stay away from each other. (more…)
“A million words would not bring you back, I know because I tried, neither would a million tears, I know because I cried.”

‘Hey bebe, I hope you got home safely. I just wanted to thank you for tonight. You’re such an amazing man and the little things you do for me is what makes you the best. I love you and even forever is not enough to show you how much. Good night bebe.’ (more…)
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.”
“Good night bebe.” Lenka smiled as she blew kisses at me.
I looked at her and smiled till she walked into her house. She still had no idea what had happened that night. To her, her boyfriend was still the sweetest man on earth and he loved her with his whole heart but that was far from the truth. Well it wasn’t, till some two hours ago. (more…)
“Out of the bliss comes magic, wonderment and creativity.”
On a beautiful Sunday night, I drove Lenka, the love of my life, to Radisson Blu Hotel, Ikeja. I planned to propose that night. Lenka, my half Nigerian, half Kenyan girlfriend had being a wonderful person, a praying and hardworking woman, one any man would never want to lose. She looked as beautiful as ever, with her hair pulled back, her beautiful face was very radiant and her orange dress accentuated every curve on her body. (more…)
