Own Devices – Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé

Ìwọ nìkan ní ó kù! When it’s good; And, you’re cool; All come for food; Thinking you a fool! Ìwọ nìkan ní ó kù! You’ll go to partying; And be merrying You’re pals; With great gals! Tó bá burú tán! Great guys too; Will be damn cool; When there’s money; All will be flowing! Kòní […]



by Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé I am asking a question whether Nigerians do use their brains to think at all. I can not be accused of being stand offish because the question includes me too. No matter how we look at the self styled Maradona, Ibrahim Babangida, who himself did not prove better, the greatest favour he […]

I was speechless by Praises Chidera Obiora

By this time we were already driving for 20 minutes and I could not understand why a Ten-minute walk on foot from my hotel to the club, had become a twenty-minute drive from the club back to my hotel. I stared back at the road and didn’t know the route she had taken. The roads […]

DISAPPOINTMENTS! by Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé

Disappointment is not felt if it’s coming from any other person but a loved one. When it comes from a dearest one, it softens a heart of stone. It makes a woman out of a mean man. It makes a strong man cry even without receiving lashes. However, when such happens, a he man after […]

WETIN NOW? by Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé

Nigerians are definitely an interesting lot. For every little thing they are ready to cry blue murder. Why should people be shouting (or wailing?) about a former governor and a serving senator who went to do a private business in the privacy of a private room in a private hotel where he spent his private […]



by Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé For the Western worlders, the few days of sunny moments are taken as a treasure. This shows in their mode of dressing and overall behaviour. It’s like some of them want to stay aloof of even the tiniest clothing item as long as the summer lasts. This is when they can prove […]

WISE SOUNDS! by Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé

My day is hardly complete without listening to authentic African music and watching Yoruba movies. This is because I get to learn so much from them. As a scribbler, I always like to project the African story from the viewpoint of an African. I guess one can’t succeed in doing this without understanding African mores […]

FIELD MARSHALL! by Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé

This Buhari of a soldier really deserves to be promoted to the rank of field marshall! See all the major works he’s doing. We all know he has given the order for the kidnap of Nnamdi Kanu and pronto, when the poor victim got to Nigeria, he was promptly whisked into court. Sunday Igboho also […]



by Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé I posted something about kites sometime last week. That was a stillborn kite. There is another kite being contemplated that might turn out to be positive. It is all about tennis. Lawn tennis! There has been a lot of discussions and arguments over the male/ female superiority in lawn tennis. While some […]

THE LIBRARY! By Adewale Sobowale

THE LIBRARY! By Adewale Sobowale

Toronto is a great city! It’s great not because it’s the capital of Ontario province. Ontario, of course, is a province in Canada! Neither is it great because of its dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers which are not even as tall as the impressive CN towers. This post is singing the praises […]
