I remember Aisha by Guest Contributor African Wanderlust

I remember Aisha because I could never forget. The intense blackness from the Kohl that lit up the lids of her big brown eyes, her lashes long and curled that pulled me in deeper every time she blinked. Her soft brown henna’d hands that innocently touched mine as we walked together along dusty Kaduna roads. […]

It’s a question that I’m personally tired of answering especially as it’s the first frickin post on this blog. *Exhale*. Anyway, Malaka has produced this super cool video for Adventures explaining why we do what […]

The first month of Pomaa’s self-imposed exile was absolute. Ibadan society was not so varied that she could not bump into anyone who did not previously know of her wedding, or have some hand in it somehow. She was an event planner. Everyone from the mushroom seller to the staff at all the top hotels […]

Guest post from Kamilah: Miami!

She looked down at her phone notification and saw that she missed his call. She excused herself from her lunch date to quickly return his call knowing he would not leave a message. “Hey you” she said when he answered. “Yo, it’s flooding by my house so I won’t make it there right now. I’ll […]

“Oh. Agyapomaa…is this how you keep your room? No wonder my son didn’t fight me as hard when I demanded he break up with you.” Madame Okoye kicked a silk blouse to the side with the tip of her pointed-toe pump. She gave Pomaa a side eye before speaking further. “Not very womanly at all, […]

Three is definitely not a crowd (Part 1)

Nnenna had thought of all the fine details. She had dropped off an envelope with my houseboy earlier on in the day. I felt my stomach muscles tighten when I recognised her handwriting on the cream coloured envelope. I opened the envelope and the room card for Suite 134 of the Movenpick hotel nearly fell […]

Someone was pounding on the door. Ewurade*, why wouldn’t they stop? It was like a thunderstorm shaking a small forest. Why so vicious? Just stop it already! “Pomaa! Pomaa, open the door now!” Silence. “Pomaa, we know you are in there. The watchman told us so. Open the door, Pomaa!” Creak… “Oh my God, Pomaa! […]
