Ok, let’s do this. Image
I like Level Up.

“Don’t be afraid to step into your greatness, people.”
I love how Level Up changes to Alarm Clock. The horns are giving me life.

I’ll have to listen back for the lyrics.
“Way too big” is what he and Leriq teased during that Verzuz.

This is already my stand-out track. Fire.
Bebo. Hmm. I mean, I guess.
So we come to Wonderful now. I like the song because it reminds me of old SA pop songs from Yvonne Chaka-Chaka and Brenda Fassie.
Not my fave sha, but it’s good.
My first impression of Onyeka: it deserves a pared down highlife vibe. The production and the vibe aren’t quite matching for me.

(That make sense?)
I like what he did with Naughty by Nature, but I need to listen again to see if I actually like the song.
First impression of Comma: I’m a fan. Def a gbese and legwork jam.
I like No Fit Vex. A lot.

Leriq is giving me all my fave tracks so far o.
23 is goooooooooooooddddd.
It is no accident that all my fave songs so far are all Burna, no features. Same as African Giant. I like Burna by himself pls.
I was looking forward to getting another Burna x Sauti Sol collabo, and I’m so glad they came together again.
Monsters you made. I like this a lot. This is precisely the song it needs to be.
I hope we get a haunting, beautiful video for Monsters You Made. With Chris Martin playing the keys amidst the ruins.
Wetin dey sup, good.

This second half of the album is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 so far.
Real Life is damn good. And Stormz!
Bank On It is a great note to end on. Nice and chill and self-assured.
Ok, so first listen done. Burna has never sounded more sure. As someone who’s watched him evolve and listened to pretty much everything he’s ever put out, his evolution over the last few years has been a real gift to watch. #TWICEASTALL
Second half of the record is stronger than the first (with the exception of Way Too Big, which is a proper jam) #TWICEASTALL
Fave songs on my first listen: Alarm Clock, Way Too Big, No Fit Vex, 23, Monsters, Real Life.

Jerk seasoning 😃 Image
Grilling this jerk chicken tomorrow for lunch with a friend. There’ll also be jollof and plantain. Gonna be awesome. Image
So my jerk seasoning is always: soy/Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil/a neutral oil, thyme, chilies (as much as you can handle), spring onion, ginger, honey/treacle/sugar, a little water. The sugar/honey or whatever you’re using isn’t to make it sweet really; it just gives balance

Marinade for tomorrow’s chicken — lime zest and juice, grated ginger, garlic, Thai palm sugar, fish sauce, half a tin of coconut milk, 2 Tbsp. Peanut oil, some black pepper. #SaratusEats
Notice there’s no mention of salt. The last thing you need in this world is to add salt to a dish with fish sauce, which is basically anchovy essence.

Scenes from a Marriage s1e1, and I’m once more confident that there’s nothing more embarrassment-inducing than being around a couple arguing.
Also apropos: Oscar Isaac is such a fine man.
There’s so much that goes into us being able to get this representation on marriage and wanting/having a baby. Not least of which is women being more open about what having a baby is really like. I’m grateful for that work.

Thanks a feminist today, folks :)

So I spent the morning yesterday visiting project sites in village communities outside of Yola where there are informal banking clusters. These clusters have been in operation at least 3 years, at most 5. This particular 3yr one has 25 women in it. Ave. loan repayment? 100%.
This is the first session for the new cycle. You buy “shares” worth 200 Naira each, and the amount of shares determine how much you can borrow. Highest amount borrowed this year, 63k. Lowest, 16k. Loans used for stuff like buying engines for Agro processing or school fees.

You people on here make having feelings for other people sound like a disease sha.
I think that one of the reasons many Nigerian marriages are a sham is because we have made giving a shit about someone sound like the worst thing. I get it, people can be shitty. But I think it also stops people from being as emotionally invested as they should.
It’s a wonder how much of our actions is driven by the logic of “it’s going to end anyway, so let me not be the idiot that got fooled by this person.” We end up doing awful things and hurting people because at least we get to control that.
