as a nigerian, there’s one sound I will never ever forget. it’s the sound of disappointment. in what you ask? in whom you say? read on, dearest compatriot.
it’s the sound of a ceiling fan coming to a slow and painful halt, its blades losing their ferocity as they whip the air slightly more timidly with each turn. laying on your bed, look up to whence this sound doth come and your sights confirm your worst fear: NEPA has taken light.
: I absolutely LOVE your blog, definitely a departure from some of the senseless carp that I see (that I sometimes blog lol) but I love it. Reminds me of why i LOVE being Naija. I also did an accent tag vid response so i'm quite familiar with you & ur blog is another reason to love you! ^_^
Thank you, bebi!!! How can we not love being Naija?!
