Great People


In the fall of 2017, I started to drive.   I finally decided I’d had enough of hopping buses, waiting forever for TTC buses to arrive, jumping across puddles, being eternally hungry because a 5 minute drive home would take 30 minutes by bus. So I went to the Yorkdale Toyota and spoke with a guy called Ramon about getting… Read more →

Dumebi my Madam

When I say I’ll do something, I WILL do it eventually after several years of procrastinating. I have promised and promised to eventually write this but every year something stopped me.   In 2012, I was one of the anxious young people summoned to the almighty Law school for the experience that would allegedly turn boys into men. I eagerly… Read more →

Happy Anniversary

Today makes it 25 years since Miss Deborah Sule became Mrs Ademu-Eteh. Pause, and calmly think of that.   How people with different family backgrounds- the son of a village trader and the daughter of a Regimental Sergeant-Major, a Nurse and a Teacher could build such a beautiful life together is something short of a Mystery. How they could have… Read more →

Olanrewaju Gbenga-Martins

And to Vivian who did some amazing housekeeping and cooking this weekend. And to the people who refused to let me sleep so they’d be the… Read more →

The Catechist

Jerry Ifeanyi Chiemeke I ran into him often but we never “officially” started talking until the last month of law school. Before that, It was the usual comment or two on my blog, and on His when he started blogging. I remember being vaguely impressed with his blogging skills as he said he started the blog in April of 2013.… Read more →

Owanate D. Max-Harry

Finally I’ve dusted my keyboard in 2014. I thought I would end my “great-people-I-know” series in 2013, but with Oyinkan’s birthday, Owanate and Dumebi’s birthdays this month I just cannot skip this.   In My Birthday speech of 2012 (Bros over Cutlasses) I talked and talked about how I needed to reduce the amount of female friendships I was cultivating.… Read more →
