Out Of Love – 2

Remember the story I covered sometimes back last year known as Out-of-Love? About a certain lady whom I know as *Agrippina*? Her message came abruptly, not that I was expecting it. Not at all. She was the last thing to cross my mind. She sent it at 0230 hours. Normally I do not answer calls…

Politics, God, and Bread

Religion and poverty always have a strong connection. Apart from Africa, even in Europe and America, the result is pretty much the same. My case is that the poor man needs religion.

2K19

What has this year done for me that I would want to remove my clothes and bask in the sun? Or just stand on the rooftop of a building and enjoy the evening sun? What is it about it that it has done or brought delight to you? Or did this year come around with…
