Taboo 04: Yellow

Yellow.  I hate that colour. No, I don’t have anything against mangoes, roasted plantain or Ghanaian taxis. The thing is for as long as I can remember, I have been the girl with the yellow eyes. ‘Ei her eyes are yellow papa!’, a 27 year old guy would loudly whisper to his friend as they…

Love me fiercely

Love me fiercely. Love me boldly. Surprise me with hausa koko at work. Fight for the last piece of soft wele when you buy me waakye from Auntie Adiza, just because you know my heart will smile when my teeth sink in with ease. Cover me with a blanket and kiss my forehead even though…

Well there you have it- the effects of Kenikodjo reader pressure. I feel as though I haven’t been the best version of me in recent times when it comes to storytelling, so I guess it doesn’t hurt to give you what you want.  Part 1 and Part 2 got so many of you texting me for Part…

Taboo 02: Happy birthday to me

Wow! The support for #OurTaboo has been absolutely phenomenal! Thank you for all the emails, text messages and the general goodwill!

Taboo 01: Intruder

Today, we begin the Taboo series. It is a collection of real-life stories that have been ‘fictionalized’ to protect the people’s identity. It is like nothing I have ever done before. These stories are not related or directly connected. I will share them as often as they come. I am grateful to all those who…

Review: Letters to my future wife

Award winning journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni launched his second book, Letters to my future wife, on 3rd May. He gave me the honour of reviewing his book at the launch, which was attended by people from all walks of life. I was hesitant at first because I don’t consider my writing style to be ‘serious-review-at-launch’…

It’s Easter, one of my favourite periods of the year. I would send you ‘greetings’ but I can’t stand the ‘Happy Easter’ greeting. It’s sort of flat. I prefer ‘Christ is risen’ with the response ‘He’s risen indeed!’ That, after all, is the essence of Easter- his death, resurrection and what that sacrifice symbolizes for…

Not one of us

Been ages, I know! Forgive me for the absence but I am back now. I trust you have all been doing well!  A special welcome to all those who have recently joined the family. Make yourselves at home 🙂 This one is dedicated to Kwame Acheampong for bugging me to publish a story asap and…
