  • Little Star

    By Kiah on October 29, 2014
        When I was only an itty bitty little girl, my grandmother would wait till the stars descended upon the night sky to tell me the stories every child in our village loved her for. But the tales my grandmother told me at night, when we were alone, were different from the one she told the other children. These […]

  • A Kind of Rain

    By Kiah on September 29, 2014
    It has been 9 months since Korede died: 9 months; the same amount of time it took me to nurture him in my womb. 9 months; enough time for a mother’s tears to dry on their own but not enough for a father’s wounds to heal, not enough for any of us to be whole again. Oba was the best […]

  • Laughter’s Return

    By Kiah on August 1, 2014
    I love August. Can you guess why?   Laughter is the last one to creep back in after a season of grief. And even when it does, it always does its moving back in an unconvincing manner. As if you are the returned prodigal son, and laughter, the brother you left behind who is now reluctant to share its inheritance […]

  • Despair

    By Kiah on July 2, 2014
    I have been to Jos once. I have many friends who call it home. This one is for Jos, a prayer that someday soon, joy, rather than despair will be etched on the faces of its residents Happy 4th of July America, Land of the free, Home of the Brave (Tim Howard!!!!)   P.S I haven’t edited so bear with […]

  • The Silence

    By Kiah on June 13, 2014
    Have I told you guys about Funminiyi? If I haven’t, I am sorry…  He is this amazing writer that doesn’t write often enough but when he does, he blows the wind out of my sails. This one is for Borno, for Nigeria. It is time for to unroll our happiness.   The silence deafens her. It was not always like this, […]

  • Stories My Father Told Me

    By Kiah on June 1, 2014
    This was written by my friend, John. Most of you know him as @singlenigerian . Of course I put maggi for inside but he did all the pepper grinding and hunting for meat (lol- is that sexist or what?) Parenthood is probably one of the hardest things we will ever do. A ‘Humans of New York’ photo yesterday showed a woman […]

  • Ilo’s Secret

    By Kiah on May 29, 2014
    You guys are probably going to complain that I am beating a dead horse…but I can’t seem to let go of this theme, this thread that has decided to find its way into most of my recent stories… A friend described this as incredulous but is it really? I think the whole point of fiction is to help reality along […]

  • Hope

    By Kiah on May 24, 2014
    I wrote this one for this girl I used to know. We weren’t close but when I think of her, I miss what we didn’t have. It was also one of the stories I entered for The Writer competition. It is an old one but I have cleaned it up a bit. The prompt was to start with ‘The Fortune […]

    By Kiah on May 16, 2014
    Y’all know I much I love ‘love stories’. I think all my love stories are starting to sound the same though. So therefore we will not be doing these love shenanigans for a while. Till I have a new angle on this thing called love at least 🙂 Till then, Enjoy and don’t forget to let your love be heard… […]
