COVID-19LockdownChronicles: The Souvenir

By Moyinoluwa Okunloye On my way from work that day, I decided to stop at the mall to shop for some groceries. We had been advised to close early so as to have enough time to prepare for the lockdown that was soon to start. There is a pandemic in the world and the only…

COVID-19LockdownChronicles: Which of my girlfriends can I marry?

By Moyinoluwa Okunloye If you have known me a long time post – secondary school, then you would have heard my whining about having only few friends. I didn’t think that I had so many friends until I thought about this post. I am blessed. Although I probably will have a few fingers left on…

COVID-19LockdownChronicles: The greatest love of my life

By Moyinoluwa Okunloye I have heard people say over and again, “I desire a great love story. I want to be married to the love of my life, you know! I want to end up with my soulmate.” I say it all the time. Like Ray in the movie Marry Me, I pray always to…

COVID-19LockdownChronicles: A love like my Grandparents’

By Moyinoluwa Okunloye I have never ceased to think about my Grandpa. He was wonderful, full of life and ever so generous. I may be biased because I am his favourite grand – child, but I think he was respected by many. He was a hardworker, never complained and I never saw him poor. Now,…

COVID-19LockdownChronicles: My Fascination to Jane Eyre

COVID-19LockdownChronicles: #WhatPapataughtMe#

By Moyinoluwa Okunloye I had just been out of secondary school when I was introduced to him. He was one of the figures in fellowship that I revered but didn’t want to necessarily be close to. I had thought that getting close to him will spoil the fun of referencing him. He would become human,…

COVID-19LockdownChronicles: Good People Radar

By Moyinoluwa Okunloye Often, I have been conflicted on who a good person actually is. Is it someone without flaws? Is it someone who goes out of their way to satisfy other people? Would that be someone who feels fulfilled from being confident of the person they are? Seriously, I don’t know. Or maybe, I…

COVID-19LockdownChronicles: The Assurance

By Moyinoluwa Okunloye My pal asked me yesterday, “Is there really panic everywhere?” Don’t crucify him, it is a valid question. Valid because the concept of how difficult this period is is not entirely getting to us. We make a deliberate effort not to listen too much to the daily increase in the numbers of…
