WELCOME HOME

Let me start with some bit of history of the land that birthed me, the land that I come from, the land that carved it's magical powers of pride in my skin.

We walked and walked and sometimes or often times we talked because we weren't dumb though there could have been some dumb in our midst.
In fact we couldn't have been quiet, considering the fact that we were happy to be escaping from a tyrant, his name? Agorkoli.

My grandfather told me the story of how we traveled many miles and temporarily settled at many places, from the time the tower of Babel fell, led by the great ancient warrior Nimrod, whose great talent in matters of battle led us to win many wars.


We settled at Ile Ife, for a long while before moving again to settle at Notsie, the town of both glory and sorrow. Our story is similar to that of the Israelites, yes it is, that's what my grandfather said.
Our glory days in Notsie was during the time of Agorkoli's father but it all changed when Agorkoli became king.

During those times, they were known as the Dogbo Community. Agorkoli became more fierce when he realized they had tricked him to kill his own son after the Dogbo community falsely accused the prince of killing one of them.
The Dogbos bragged "we have avenged the death of a living man''. It was the last thing they did before they fled Notsie to settle at present day Volta land.
Why they did that will be a story for another day.
Volta land is located in the most amazing country you can find in the whole world
It's a land that flows with laughter, peace and love
Graced with people with different backgrounds and ideologies yet united in all ways
It's crazy how we make fun of our own difficult situations, so much that inspite of that, we're able to overcome our challenges as one
I'm talking of God's own piece of land, GHANA

#TheReminder: GO GET A COPY

Hey there,
I cannot remember the last time I shared a blog post. It has been a great while. I have been away and doing nothing really except reading so much, school and getting into facebook squabbles(lol). But it is all over now. Time to get back to things that really matter. Aye!

So here is how we are going to start. Here is how we are coming back. As God willed it, my maiden book is almost done and it is titled THE REMINDER. I had a good friend help with the editing and here is a review he wrote. I'd like for you to read it and get to know a little about this book. In the meantime, till i start writing again.


"The book you are about to pay for has a hundred and thirteen pages besides the forward and introduction. It contains a collection of poems, memoirs and narratives from several sources all crafted to tell an elaborate story that is supposed to be a reminder that will strike you to respond to the things we so easily ignore.
In this book, The Reminder, you will find you…

#EchoesOfInspiration: GOD IS A TAXI DRIVER

Last night I met God. He was just getting off the phone with someone.
"in an hour's time" He said roughly, yet calmly, then he ended the call. I bet it was a prayer he was answering. (Thinking about it, that one hour he said, could mean one year oo)

When I saw him. I just knew he was the one I'd go with. He laughed a lot and for some reasons, I was drawn to him.
So after boo negotiated the fare,  I took my good bye kiss which he always, carefully plants on my forehead in the same way you put an egg down.
"Keep the jacket" he said smiling as I opened the door lazily and sat at the back seat

After sitting, I took a moment to scan the seat, as my ears caught the sound of a favorite gospel song playing and I'd never seen a taxi so dirty like the one I sat in.
"Oh what happened here?" I asked calmly though with displeasure.
"Oh a woman I just dropped off" he replied shrugging his shoulders like he really wasn't bothered about it, no, …

#MemoirsFromTamale: TAMALE LIKE AFRICA

We were told of a land where it's people lived as savages, tearing one another up in conflicts upon conflicts. We heard of how poverty stricken they were and constantly asked to pray for them. As if prayer without works was the solution they needed.
Overtime, this narrative, though may have happened, seems to have become as permanent as an indelible mark a perception, that is just too hard to clean. 
But good news is, efforts are being made to change the narratives of this beautiful land. It may not be with a Black Panther story but it's going to be through sharing amazing experiences from this land which will make you say "Damn! Wakanda life am I living if I'm not visiting this place?" and you're going to mark it a "to do before I die" thing. 
Tamale, like Africa has had it's fair share of gross misconceptions about it's people and the town as a whole. But the story is changing and people are beginning to see that it's not what they te…
