Still on that #KenikodjoMeetup hangover mehn!! I am writing a post just to tell you guys how it went but first, let me finish this short story that has been sitting in my drafts. As for those of you inboxing me with tear emojis and asking me when the next meetup is, I told you, didn’t I? My readers are too amazing for a meetup … Continue reading Peacemaker
Only God knows the mountains and valleys this story has had to cross to get to you guys. A thousand apologies to those of you who kept checking the website for an update. I was one of the people who was praying that January and then February would not end so soon because I had a few stories to tell that had not yet seen … Continue reading Room 1045 Ep09: Big Brother
My good friend Mandela wrote the male version of Love me fiercely and even though I am not a guy, I suspect that he has hit the nail on the head. (Guys, am I right?) We have the most random of conversations based on his whatsapp status and he just seemed like the right person for the job. Thanks for indulging me on such short notice, … Continue reading Love me fiercely: The Men’s Version
I am still smiling to myself with pride for sneaking Capital High’s K Beck into #Room1045. I love love love the reactions of the K Beck lovers. He is still the most popular Kenikodjo guy (or is it Prosper?) ever! How is your 2018 treating you so far? Well, I hope! Let’s reach those goals and targets, shall we? Have a blessed week, guys! I … Continue reading Room 1045 Ep08: Dean of Students
Can’t believe the holidays are over! You know how much I love Christmas!!! ‘Tis the season to remember how God came to this earth and dwelt amongst us as a baby; it is also the season to eat, make merry and spend time with the people we love. Hope you did all 4! Writing during the Christmas holidays sucks! 😩 Everybody is chilling and you are sitting … Continue reading Room 1045 Ep07: Not a hint!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, guys! (depending on when this gets published) This is the 4th in the 7 days of Christmas series. Today’s Christmas short story features Akwasi Prempeh’s return to Ghana after 5 years of absence. I enjoyed writing it- I hope you enjoy reading it. The phone vibrated a number of times before Kwame Ofori felt it. He had deliberately … Continue reading #7daysofXmas 4 : Welcome Starter Pack
Wednesday is upon us once again! You guys make me feel like President Mahama must have felt after losing the elections. I wrote the longest episode and almost everyone said it was short. I was like 😲. I count words and effort, you count the feeling. As for those fighting with me for the way Episode 5 ended, experience should have shown you that cliffhangers are my … Continue reading Room 1045 Ep06: Queen Kess
And just like that, Wednesday is upon us again! Last week, Joan shocked us all by leaving Barima in one breath and dancing with Nii Okai in the next. This week, we are delving into Salamatu’s life. She is the roommate we know the least about. Let’s correct that. Catch up on all things #Room1045 here. Edit- I wrote this intro last Tuesday night. Unfortunately, … Continue reading Room 1045 Ep05: The Lion’s Den
Wow! It’s already been four weeks since the series started? Don’t worry, I am not thinking about ending it prematurely. I still remember what you guys did to me when 8 to 5 ended earlier than you expected it to. Here is where we left off last week and you can find all the Room1045 stories here as well. 96% of those who voted want … Continue reading Room1045 Ep04: A good kind of different
This week, I met two ladies who were super excited that I had started a new series. They also wanted to know why I had stopped writing earlier. I can’t exactly explain why I stopped, but I can tell you why I have started writing again. A few weeks ago, the most amazing CPR gave me a pep talk about how it was unfair to … Continue reading Room 1045 Ep03: Another man’s woman
Goodness, I love you guys! Thank you for heartily welcoming Room 1045 the way only awesome readers like you can. Special shout outs to Etsey, LorettaAbby and the others who wanted Wednesday to come early. I am glad you like the characters you have met so far. It is interesting to see how people are already volunteering for the photoshoot even before the story fully unfolds. … Continue reading Room 1045 Ep 02: The sins of the fathers
It’s series season again here in Kenikodjo land. Been thinking about ways to make this series different from all the others. It feels different. I am not quite sure why though. Looking forward to hanging with you guys every Wednesday. As always, I would love to hear from you. Your feedback helps to shape the story in many ways as we go along. Hashtag is … Continue reading Room 1045 Ep01: Early Days
We all know how much I enjoy trotro rides. I have even learnt how to climb a troski in heels and a pencil skirt, but ever since I ripped the back of my dress getting into a 207, I vowed not to sit in a troski unless I absolutely had to. Enter Uber. Cheaper rates than the regular taxis, most of the time. If you … Continue reading Uber-who?
I co-wrote this story in 2015 with Gerard Nartey via whatsapp. He’d write one paragraph and I would write the next, even though we didn’t have any idea what kind of ending the other person had in mind. I don’t know why I never published it then. Happy reading and cheers to spontaneous writing! His eye lids weighed due to gravity. He kept wake to … Continue reading Waiting for Kathy
Been a while since we Taboo-ed. No better time to start like the present. Today’s story is one that strikes a chord with everyone who has had to deal with tribal discrimination here in Ghana. Sometimes it lurks in the shadows of our lighthearted banter, sometimes it is a little more bold, a little more conspicious. ‘Krobo girls are sex maniacs, Hausa men are too … Continue reading Taboo 05: For Ewe, For Worse
