I have watched “Elesin Oba” and I do not blame the people who expected entertainment but got confused instead.
I am an art student, who majored in literature, I understand the movie, seeing as I’ve read the book.
However, when filmmakers adapt plays into motion pictures,
they must imagine that no one has read the book and for that reason, simplify the story to an acceptable extent and give the story better artistic expression.
Real intellectual art can be entertaining too. I believe this is where we must take serious lessons from Hollywood.

Dear DANG Community,
Online and offline, I got you. Let me give you quick gist about how I hung out with Dang! Community members last night in Budapest and I tried my best to help them solve a quick problem but it ended in “AH!”
A short #thread.
As you may have seen on my Insta story, My friend and I went Pub crawling last night with our handsome tour guide, Levi. We were joined by two other DANG! Members. They are a delight I must tell you.
As we arrived at the 3rd club, one of them said, “Ife, look at that cute guy,

In 2007, I borrowed money from a friend - N9,000. It was a lot of money for me back then. I had exhausted my borrowing and dashing Grace from my siblings so I had to fall back on a friend to loan me some money.
I was going to pay her back from my allowee.
However, life happened and I couldn’t return the money in full when I promised I would. I told her. “Please let me give you 5k now and balance the remaining next month.” She disagreed and said she wanted all her money at once and immediately,she didn’t want to “spoil” the money.

#Flashbackfriday to last week when I sat beside former president Olusegun Obasanjo on the plane and we had a lengthy discussion.
Of course, I asked him tough questions and he answered them straight, with no sugar coating.
Remember I posted this morning about how you can pray for anything? As soon as I saw President Obasanjo at the airport, I asked God to allow me to speak with him, I went further to pray that I’d be sitting beside him.
As we boarded the flight,

If you were at O2 today wearing a Versace shirt and black Denim, walking with a lady wearing a white shirt and blue Denim, my Lord will judge you. I know both of you are Nigerians.
DANG Community, thank you for asking me what happened, I’ll tell you.
Was I not by myself, walking towards my friend after a rigorous climb to the top of the O2 when I saw these two people, well I saw the lady’s big bum bum first. Then I saw a big black hand rubbing the bum as they walked in front of me.
Not only that, the girl was making a video,

One time, months after we’d broken up, someone I dated said to me, “You expressed your love way too much and it kind of scared me. Also, you were too understanding, I used to be afraid that there’s something else or that you were pretending.”
Translation: “I prefer people who hold back and play games,
I also prefer drama over peace and quick settlement of issues.”
I hated to fight so I accepted apologies quickly and just expressed my love exactly how I felt it. Guess what? That was a problem.

1.During a recent performance, Tiwa Savage said her hit song “somebody son” was about Jesus and not a man.
Dear Tiwa, calvary greetings.
There’s no way you’re referring to my Lord Jesus who died on the cross of calvary. Because it can’t be my Lord Jesus that you’re calling,

IF I COULD ASK GOD FOR ANYTHING, THESE WILL BE MY REQUESTS:
1. That I fulfill His purpose for my life, and not just be a passerby. At the end of it all, I can boldly say that my life was well-spent and I made an impact in people’s lives.
2. That I continue to learn to love myself and care for myself; the decisions I make concerning my life favor me and make my life better.
3. That I am able to take care of the people I love; to make their lives easier and softer,to never a source of sorrow to those who love me.

I woke up this morning and tried to think about the last time I had a Valentine’s date and I realized that I haven’t had one in a long time. I felt sad at first but one thing I avoided was tell myself, “Don’t worry, you’d get one next year,” because what if I don’t?
I calmed myself down and thought about the love I have been shown in life. I realized that I have been loved by people in so many ways, but not being shown love in a certain way - romantically - made me feel like I had never experienced it.

Before You Get that Divorce… Breathe
I know there are posts everywhere on the internet about leaving a relationship or marriage when you are unhappy but very rarely do you hear about people (especially young couples) who took their time to work things out.
Marriage is beautiful but totally worth the wait. Our courtship was long distance but the man at the other end was completely amazing and I could swear I was smitten.

Valentine’s Day is on a Monday, a working day. How sweet. It’s even more wonderful because the day after is a also work day. Tension will not be on the high side. Is there anything too hard for God to do? No.
We know that some of you with unnecessary gragra will still manage to pull it off. We don’t have a problem with this o. No, not at all. We just want to make sure that as you are expressing your love, you are going all out with it.

In my complex, on my way to my house, I see a woman chilling by the pool, she’s gently rocking her baby in the stroller. What catches my eye and ear is her toddler’s scream.
He’s rolling on the floor, crying. I watch him get up, slam himself on the floor and scream louder.
His mother gets up from her lounge position, I assume she’s going to console him. Instead, she pulls back the lounge chairs beside the toddler, dragging them away from him.
Then, she goes back to chilling on her lounge chair,

Marriages in Nigeria and most parts of Africa are sustained by women. You can argue this with your village deity. Women in general, put up with a lot of bullshit just to make their marriages work.
From childhood they have been taught that a wise woman keeps her home. In order to keep their homes, they end up enduring a lot of ill-treatment.

I have concluded that, “When will you come to my house?” is the one question Lagos men love asking. If they don’t ask this question in a day, they will probably faint!
Nothing like, “Let me take you on a trip to the Maldives,” or “Let’s go picnicking on the beach.” Iro! No romance from here to there. Nothing nothing. Just vibes, Insha Allah and “come to my house.”

Today, I’d like to - once again- address people in their early 20s.
When I graduated from Uni in 2006 (22 years old) I had a plan - Work for a movie company, save, write my own movie. The plan didn’t work after NYSC when I realised those movie companies didn’t pay much/at all.
Sometimes, I would walk to Opebi from Maryland Bus-stop because I couldn’t afford public transportation so I changed plans: Get a job that pays you, make money, then write. My goal was to be a writer so any job I took at the time was okay as long as I was making money.

There are seven things I wish I knew earlier in life. Not that I regret my experience so far in life, I only wish I knew certain things sooner.
1. That love is an action, not mere words: So that when people tell me sweet nothings, I do not fall for all they say, helplessly, because you can tell me you love me, but not want the best for me. I want to hear you say you love me, but I want to feel it even more.

On this platform, we address the men 98 out of 100 times when it comes to issues that concern us. During these conversations, I don’t see women asking me to switch the questions back at them (the women). We focus on the exact topic (s) and discuss it.
When I address women directly, I see comments like, “Ife, the right thing to do is to ask the men why…”
But today I’m addressing the women dear, shall we stay focused?
So many odds are stacked against women already; we know that, we address that.
