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…

30 before 30

This is a list of things I hope to do by the time I am thirty. It is more like a wishful thinking list. They are not in order of importance, just in order of what came to mind first. These lists are exciting to make and as always, I don’t know if I will…

Mr President-Elect…

Mr President-Elect, Last week Friday was one of the most exciting days of my life, not because you won (no offense, that is also exciting) but because of something else. For the first time in a very long time, I saw Ghanaians unite in the most extraordinary way to celebrate your victory. From Tamale to…

Retelling the Ghanaian story: TedXCentralUniversityWomen2016

Please find below the text of the talk I gave at TedXCentralUniversity2016. If you know me, you will know that I am a talkative so I did a bit of ad libbing. But the essence of the talk is captured here. I chose the topic ‘Retelling the Ghanaian story’ because I am a storyteller and…

The anatomy of trotro seating..

Everyone knows I love trotros. They bring me too much joy. It also means I am a veteran when it comes to trotros and their seating. The best seats in the trotro are window seats. Not only do you not have to move until you get to your destination, you also have an escape route…

Soliloquy

It was there when I got home. My dinner. Two bowls covered with a napkin. I hate it when she does this- plays the dutiful wife when I have been a jerk. That ‘coals of fire’ thing they taught us in Sunday School actually works. It makes me feel worse for not being there for…

This one is for all of us! 

One word to describe how I feel about #BloGhAwards16: WOW!!  When I walked up to receive the Best Blog Award, I shared snippets of the Kenikodjo story. I started updating my Facebook status more frequently two years ago because I was done with National Service and out of a job. (Vodafone browned me😢)  I wrote…

100 things that make me happy 

I first saw this on Dr AOA’s blog and then I also discovered Nana Ama Agyeman Asante‘s list. Initially, I started compiling my list out of curiosity to see what would pop into my mind and if I could make it to 100. It turns out that I had so many things to write down that I was…

Imperfect

For the unconventional girl.. I love you With your trousers that fit your hips but not your waist, your chipped red fingernails, and your ponytail that has three or more strands sticking out, barely touching your neck. Your imperfect self.   I love the way you look when you wake up from a nap, the…
