– Relating to, or characteristic of controversy, or prolonged public dispute, debate, or contention; polemical: . . . Given to controversy; argumentative; disputatious: a controversial public figure.


“Rebellion is when you look society in the face and say I understand who you want me to be but I’m going to show you who I actually am.”
– Anthony Anaxagorou


I am one really unusual fellow.
(Man, know thyself).

Yes, that’s not a doubt to me, but that I’m controversial; huhnnnn, sounds like ‘broken records’ to me.
(Breaking News)

Then, I was asked, ‘Why do you love women so much ?’

“Women give me swagger”
(Beautiful women, that is).
Add intelligence to it and that’s a killer for me.

A woman’s LIPS.
(I bet you know what can be done with those)
I see a nod wif your head in agreement.

Then a well structured cleavage.
Simply wowed.
“Yeeeeeeeeeeee, ori iya mi ooooooooo.”

(Things that scatter my medulla oblongata).

Forget the bum bum joooooo.
(I’m shedding weight – Those are fatty things).

Jeest a joke – “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh iro ni oooooo.”
So you believed all that ?

Oje Marina (Teasing).

If you believed that, you’ll believe anything mehnn.


Ok, that’s it.

The other day, a friend also said ‘You talk too much’.
(I laughed; Teheheheheheheheeee).

Some have suggested all other sorts trying to “define” me.

Hey, you’re a ‘good’ writer.
(Nah, I know what I am).

I’m not even half an amateur writer cos in truth, I hate to write.
I’m lazy like that.
For you to be a writer, you first and foremost have to also be a good reader; a lover of books – Pari passu.

Sincerely, in as much as I don’t hate books, I don’t have a love for them either.

‘But you write all the same’, another person said.
Yeah, compelled to write so I can tell my “stories”.


My life is a story, so if you’ve anything to do with me or concerning me, then you’re bound to be part of my stories – Compelled as a matter of fact.

At any given moment, I’m on the lookout for a newsworthy story (Be it when I’m with you, with my kids, in my car, at church, at a party; just anywhere; anytime and anyhow).

Bring a situation to life, giving it breath, lifting it from the dead.
Telling it exactly as it is – Detailed.

‘But you’re not a journalist ?’

My reply:

“You can be whomever you wanna be.”

Some also wonder if I ‘kiss and tell’ – Lemmie leave that to your imagination.

‘Are those ‘tales’ really true ?’ some also ask.

“Mini mini maini more”

Maybe yes, maybe not.

Your guesses are as good as mine.
(But the truth is bitter)

‘What is your favourite color ?’

“My favorite color is GREEN, very dark green preferably.”
The dark green shade which reflects even on this blog.

Your color ain’t green but ice blue, bloody red, candy white, burnt orange, burgundy, coconut gold etc.


That’s what differentiates us.


“They laugh at me because I’m different – I laugh at them because they are all the same”
– Kurt Cobain


It’s unfortunate you’re a GONE-r, Scouser, Shepe or Shitty.
That’s your choice – Not mine.

I’m a MAN.

‘Your views about God ?’

I know “God made MAN (United) in His own image”

Quoting further:

“But whoever is UNITED with the Lord is one with Him in spirit”
– 1 Corinthians 6:17

2 Bible quotes in one fell swoop; as if that is motherfu^king controversial.

That’s awesomely unique.

‘You act crazy sometimes’ – Another person said.

“Crazy is relative” I told him.

Afterall, ain’t WE all crazy in some ways ?

You’re even much more crazy to have thought me ‘controversial’ – Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

“It doesn’t make you a bad person to want to live your own life”
– Alexandra Bracken

LIFE is about the little things.

Create them.
Enjoy them.
Remember them.

I’m entitled to my opinion ke, same way you deserve yours.
We can’t all like the same things. The world would be too boring if we do.

That’s why we are different from one another.

Respect me for ME.

My expressions, opinions, sentiments, values, thoughts, space, ideas etc are MINE – Scratch that.

Kikikikikikikikikikiiiii !


“When you come to the point where you have no need to impress anybody – Your freedom will begin”
– unknown


Be YOUnique !

    You’re your own best friend. You can not and will not satisfy everyone and this includes family and friends. Do what you think is right, do you and you’d reap the consequences in the long run.
    Be original, be you. Hahaha

    A good surmise of someone who look like a mirror image of me, minus the woman aspect. I am a one woman man Not that i don’t like fine women- who no like fine things?- but age and the fact that I am just not cut out for juggling women. A real look into you. Keep being yourself, it is better than being a PHOTOCOPY that can never be original.
