  • Why

    By Kiah on November 6, 2016
      I have been away too long. Blame my ‘Ajala’ ways. I am in love with Asia and can’t wait to go back. It was a trip that exceeded my every expectation. Someday I will write about it. Not today. Today I am writing about Third Mainland Bridge, Oworonshoki, Ghana High, Falomo etc. Because I am starting to forget Lagos […]

    By Kiah on September 30, 2016
    My people, forgive my silence. Writing these days na war. LOL. I like this story. A lot. Let me know if you like it too. Winter is coming but God pass them. Winter still caught Rume unawares, even after all these years of living in New York. She had accepted it a while ago; she would never get used to […]

  • The Call of the Wild

    By Kiah on September 13, 2016
    Last year , a missionary came to my church in Toronto. He talked about the mission to the First Nations. The stories he told left my heart broken. The conditions he was describing seemed impossible in Canada yet it exists, in Canada and in the US. Yesterday, for some weird reason, I started praying for these people. So lost, so beautiful, so […]

  • The Taking

    By Kiah on August 17, 2016
    We bury her in a white dress. Her mother insisted. It was one of those dresses women buy and never end up wearing. If I close my eyes long enough, I can imagine her in it alive.   “Isn’t it perfect?” She had asked one too many times as she modeled it for me after bringing the dress home from the store.  I was […]

  • A King and His Kingdom

    By Kiah on August 9, 2016
    18/08/1975 Dear Mum, I can’t believe I am here. It is everything you said it would be. First day I arrived felt like a homecoming. I could hardly sleep that night. The next day we went on a school tour with a student guide. It felt like I knew this place better than he did as we walked us through places […]

  • Shamed

    By Kiah on August 1, 2016
    There is shame everywhere. Shame in her mother’s kitchen where she makes meals for the children of whatever sibling has come visiting their grandmother. Shame in the only bathroom in the house where she is bathing and her mother walks in to use the toilet noisily with no apologies. Shame in waking up from nightmares on the couch she fell asleep […]

  • Rain in Oslo

    By Kiah on July 22, 2016
      This story needed a happy ever after. So I have given it one. I loved Ropo like no writer is allowed to love her characters. I loved Sallie too. Todd, I really didn’t know. He was just there. So this sequel helps me know Todd. And I have discovered that this is a little family I will always love. […]

  • Because Sometimes Jenny is a Boy

    By Kiah on July 18, 2016
    Sometimes Jenny is a boy. A boy named Juwon. You of all people should have known better to fall for a Jenny, to fall for a Juwon. The first time you saw Forrest Gump was with your cousins. Your parents had left you all to go on a couples’ trip. Your oldest cousin who was 16 was supposed to be baby-sitting […]
