adaobi (1)

adaobi is lifeless.
on a cold september night of 96' he sits and smokes his favorite Henson and Benz at mama obi's bar just along the town square.


 it is raining heavily, the kind of rain that made him wonder who had enraged Chukwu.
he daren't go home to his wife this late. the bitch would rave on and nag about his irresponsibility and stupidity. not that he minded his wife's insults. he himself knew how irresponsible and stupid he was. irresponsible enough to impregnate ada in the first place and stupid enough to have thought of telling his wife of the latest development...
nwosu was an unfortunate man. wrong things men in his age group did flawlessly, nwosu's chi made sure he paid dearly for in ten fold. other men had external affairs with women outside their marriages but the one time he tried, he got the beautiful adaobi pregnant. adaobi the girl young enough to be his first son's agemate. and somehow his chi's punishment came with a blessing because the young beautiful adaobi loved him dearly. it was his eyes she said, they were so sad and piteous...

Ado Awaye: The quiet town and mountains sitting pretty

If you’re thinking of the next place to tour in Nigeria, get in here, you might just be in luck.

The town of Ado Awaye is fascinating for not only its tourist sites but also its historical mythologies.

This review will help enlighten and prepare you for the trip to Ado Awaye with Lagos as the take-off location. This means your interpretation of logistics for this trip should be measured based on your current location.





Preparation When preparing to tour the town of Ado Awaye, these are a few things to take note of:

1. What to take
Because you’re touring, it is important to travel as light as possible. This means while packing, you should go for only essentials. Try assessing each item you intend to pack with these two questions: ‘Do I really need this?’ and, ‘Do I have another item serving the same purpose this said item offers?’.
Usually, 80 percent of the time, if you find yourself pondering over the above-italicized questions, the item in question will usually not be important.

The City That You Were

i was Jos
and
he was Lagos. i was the quiet streets of Rock Haven:
the houses separated by the heavy silence
of unanswered 'hellos' from neighbours.
the absolute conservation of shades the trees
cast here- was totally me. he. he was the busy streets of Obalende:
the unrepentant conductors yelling,
'Yaba! CMS! Yaba! Yaba!
the circular circulation of human sweat waving
through the air like Oxygen.
neglecting the weaknesses of island Ajebutters and JJC pedestrians. at night i was the city of J-Town after 8pm.
quiet. eerily so.
soldiers securing fences of the selected few.
smoking stuff and drinking liquor,
with AK-forty-somethings to bring down any rebel who dared to equal. he was the busy streets of Lasgidi at night:
the traffic, in French translated to, "la circulation"
right up from Admitalty Way through the Toll gates.
Cars honking, drivers cursing, almost excitedly at each other.
LASTMA officials obeying the call to rip-off 'rich' drivers. …
