How it started





Celebrating the women who have gone ahead of us. The ones who are along with us. The women coming behind us.

We are proud of the ones before us. In support of the ones by our sides. We encourage the ones coming up and behind us.

Happy International Women’s Day!!!



Music drifted in the background as Hadija continued her chores, it didnā€™t seem like work when the stereo was playing neo-soul. Today, she had chosen Lauryn Hill, one of her favorites.

She polished the bathroom sink as the sweet sounds of Zion echoed throughout the newly decorated flat.

The song took her mind past the memories of the last yearā€¦

The divorceā€¦

Trina taking everythingā€¦

She still couldnā€™t believe knowing Trina would bring her such great luck.

“Who would have thought?ā€ she whispered.

A joyful smile filled her face as the song faded into the next.

Winning $259,000,000 seemed unrealā€¦

Friday Fictioneers: Memories of Madam and Mustapha


I stared at the picture, and my mind went to Nigeria, Lagos to be preciseā€¦

Mustapha at the gate waiting for madam to returnā€¦

It was 6:15 pm and she wasnā€™t backā€¦

Mustapha peered through the gates for the 100th timeā€¦ ā€œShe for don reach house nowā€ he said to himself in Pidgin English marked with a heavy Hausa accentā€¦

If she didnā€™t return before 8pmā€¦it wouldnā€™t happenā€¦

ā€œHonk, Honkā€

Mustapha sighed with relief and opened the gateā€¦madam locked eyes with him as her Peugeot drove into compoundā€¦

Swiftly Mustapha went under the arches into a roomā€¦madamā€™s feet in subtle but steady pursuitā€¦

They had about an hour before Oga returnedā€¦


Glossary of terms

Oga: Master

ā€œShe for don reach house nowā€: she should have been home now

Hausa: Northern tribe in Nigeria.

This week’s offering for Friday Fictioneers hosted by Ms. Rochelle

Friday Fictioneers: His Music

I think his music will do them good…It flows from his beautiful mind to his fingers.

The serene melodic notesĀ take us all to a place…A place of harmonious gratitude

Where mindless worries cease and burdens lift… I know his music will do them good…

Just watch them feel every bit of it…

So sad, he hasĀ never seen the impact of his talent…

PS: Happy New Year!Ā I am hoping I can be as consistent as possible with writing this year. We shall see :).

Please feel to comment and critique kindly :).
