MA TA’MI SIMI… SPLATTER? by Adewale Sobowale

MA TA’MI SIMI… SPLATTER? by Adewale Sobowale

I’m the most respectful person. But then, there’s a catch to it, ‘All things being equal’. In any case, respect begets respect. Nobody is begging anyone to offer themselves to serve the people. They must have something to offer the people in terms of qualitative services. If they don’t have anything to offer, then they […]

TRUMP’S CASE! by Adewale Sobowale

There’s no doubt about the fact that if I wake up in the morning and the first person I see is Trump, I’ll go back to bed. That’s because Trump is an example of ‘eni aijiri’. That is a person that one must not meet first thing in the morning. Maybe those who have been […]
