  • A Million Years Old

    By Kiah on March 22, 2016
      Once upon a time Maimuna would have done anything Baba wanted without batting an eyelid. Once upon a time, a long, long time ago. These days my sister stares at our father with askance when he asks her to do even the smallest things, things she would have once jumped with joy to do. Things like bathing me. “Manu, […]

    By Kiah on February 21, 2016
    Photo credit: Simi Vijay Photography I wrote this a while back. It is one of those stories that I didn’t know how to handle. It is Kiah-sad. Kiah-sad is a good thing. Kiah-sad means hope dey plenty. Lol. Enjoy. He is smiling when our plane touches down in Lagos. I can tell from the way the sunlight bounces gently over […]

  • How to Mourn Someone You Don’t Like

    By Kiah on February 12, 2016
    I didn’t like Hammed Ajiboye. He infuriated me. He had opinions that I thought were uneducated. He argued blindly. He seemed to have more spirit that his frail body could handle. He was a lot like me. One time, he made a statement about the experiences of African Americans due to slavery and I was so mad at him that […]

  • Regret

    By Kiah on September 16, 2015
      Growing up, you were okay with almost every other emotion; pain, sadness, shame, joy…none of these had fazed you like they fazed other people. You could handle these emotions like most people couldn’t. Regret though, that is the one.  Regret is the bottle of ice cold beer that you never touched but felt tipsy after staring at it for […]

    All over Nigerian social media these past few weeks, there has been grief. These days I like to observe more than speak. Nigerian social media in particular gives great fodder for my stories.  This is not a tribute. I wouldn’t go that far. I never knew the man they mourn. But I want to give a face and tell the […]

  • Music Only We Hear

    By Kiah on May 22, 2015
      I spent four years in Zaria. It was a time of many firsts. Some of my strongest friendships were formed amidst the sands and winds of this amazing northern city.  I wrote this a while ago but it has yet to make its appearance on this space. Mostly because it is too long. Uggghhh. I have edited it from […]

  • Where Broken Hearts Go

    By Kiah on March 20, 2015
    There is a little bit of the movie, Inception, in this one but that isn’t what inspired it. Genesis inspired this. That and love.  Seth is almost here; don’t give up yet. Don’t you dare.   Something happened while we slept. I have spent many days and countless nights wondering what it was. 3 weeks later and I still don’t […]

     Happy New Month people! I was talking to someone recently and complaining about how this year has not been the greatest and this is an euphemism…But we still here, we still here and that more than everything else is more than enough to be thankful for. Life affords us choices. Some of these choices will be wrong, some will be […]

  • The Signing

    By Kiah on November 11, 2014
    It wasn’t as if they didn’t know it was going to happen; they had known for a long while. It wasn’t as if they weren’t prepared; for them to have known meant they were prepared. Still. Still it hit them like a tornado; winds, rain, a shaking, a loosening, an eruption, and they knew that life would never again be […]
