8 to 5 Ep15: This is not a drill

Fam!!! Funny enough, I am not emotional about ending 8 to 5. Although, between you and I, I am only ending it because I have exams soon and a girl needs to zoom in. (That almost sounds like an over-zealous prayer secretary will say.) I have enjoyed writing it- infusing it with real life and…

Jezebel’s Jollof

Naa Awula is back, serving us some realness. 1st February was her birthday as well, so I am sure she is coming with all the euphoria and hope of a new year. Happy reading!  A tune plays softly in the background. The decor – splendid. The atmosphere is filled with oohs, ahhs and awws of…

8 to 5 Ep14: Bro Code

Hi guys!! Post No 100, y’all!! I have great news for you guys! The next time you see another alert, we will be in February! Can I get a Yay? Been one long but interesting month for me. Thanks for giving Awula such a warm welcome. Maybe she will overcome her shyness and write another…

Instagram Wedding

This story is based on a conversation I had with one of my beloved friends Naa Awula. She had such vivid descriptions that I forced her to make a story out of it. Plus, I haven’t told a random short story in a very long time-I miss those. Have fun! 😉 Also, this is the first…

8 to 5 Ep13: Tomorrow

Happy Wednesday! Always a pleasure to spend time with you every week. Aside the fact that nobody acknowledged my heartfelt apology, I am doing just fine. January has been exciting so far and I just can’t wait to see what the year will bring. I have a few surprises for you over the next few…

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…

8 to 5 Ep12: Valley of the shadow of death 

Hi guys! I trust that everyone is doing well. I owe you an explanation and an apology. For the last month, I haven’t published 8 to 5 ‘on time’. I didn’t finish the 7 days of Xmas series and I haven’t responded to comments in a while. Life keeps getting in the way – an…

8 to 5 Ep11: Thou shall not catch feelings

Happy New Year!!! (This excludes the hoarders, of course.) I hope you like the new look 🙂 I am so excited about the possibilities that the New Year will bring. I was listening to Citi FM yesterday and one of the things I learnt is to carefully think about what you would want to see happen in…

#7daysofXmas 3: Balloon Love

The first two stories can be found here and here. This story is dedicated to Jemima and Miravis, my readers who called me all the way from Algeria yesterday to thank me for writing stories they can enjoy. You completely made my evening! ❤ Sakumono Estates, 1995 ‘If you don’t give me some, I will…

#7DaysOfXmas 1:Going home

Merry Christmas, guys! As promised, I am releasing a set of 7 Christmas-related micro stories this season. I am already far behind time so it’s best to get started now. Home is the best place to be for Christmas. And that is exactly what today’s story is about. Love, Keni!  Goodness gracious!  The smell of…

8 to 5 Ep10: Sexual healing

Hi guys! First of all, apologies for not publishing yesterday. I got home super exhausted and decided to take a 30 minute nap before finishing up the post. Guess what? I woke up this morning. My mother woke me up several times but the body was weak. Nobody is happier about the Christmas holidays than…

8 to 5 Ep09: Onaaapo

Hi guys! I have never had a case of writer’s block like this one before. I had no idea what to write this week- none whatsoever, but thanks to awesome bosses like Charlene who never run out of great ideas, we have a story to tell!  Happy birthday to Rebecca Zutah (and apologies for delaying…
