Luckily for me, he was heading to Victoria Island. I just saved myself three thousand bucks for a cab. The man who gave me a lift introduced himself as Ajayi. After I told him my name, he asked no more questions as we plied the expressway quietly.
Look at that bloody idiot! Why is he driving like a motherfucker? Give the phone to your cab guy. Uh oh! Ajayi kept a straight face, oblivious to my conversation.
There are road traffic officials everywhere and I doubt if that sort of conversation is best. It is these politicians and their bloody campaigns that have refused to hold off until The sad part is that it is on both lanes.
Good thing we are on the Island already. The traffic was moving slowly. You can download this book on our website.

In rural areas like this, it is rationed to communities on a monthly Knowing Aunty Agnes did not have a power generating set, I wished our off months would fall only when I was on holidays in Calabar.
As soon as the driver turned into Aunty Agnes compound, the landlady s dog ran towards our vehicle, barking. The compound was fenced with flowers and vegetables, housing Aunty Agnes apartment and three others.
The dog was still barking when we got out of the car. The landlady emerged from the tiny passage with a gigantic lantern.
She was youthful and too agile for a grandmother, which I would later learn she was. There was no trace of croakiness in her voice and her hair was shiny black. If Obotidim were an urban area, there would have been side talks of how she had a secret elixir. So you don t know how to greet? Aunty Agnes interrupted my thoughts. Aunty good evening, I said to the landlady. I was brought up to address everyone five years older than me as aunty or uncle.
Welcome my daughter. She turned to Aunty Agnes. Eka Ofon, is this the house girl you told me about? I swallowed hard. Just before you get too comfortable, you are now a house girl, a voice in my head reminded me.
No, I am a nanny, I voiced out my thoughts inadvertently. You are what? Aunty Agnes gasped. Nothing Aunty, please I wasn t talking to you, I said in a small voice. She grabbed her hand luggage and walked past me to the balcony. I was struggling clumsily to lift my suitcase when the driver came to my aid. Thank you Uncle, I said to him. Aunty Agnes had been regarding me intently from where she stood.
My friend, if you can t lift a box as light as that I don t know what you are looking for in my house! You should have let your sister come! Aunty Agnes apartment consisted of four rooms. The apartments in the compound were adjoined to each other, and the compound had one pit toilet and a bathroom that was publicly shared. There were two The first was that of the living room reserved for non-existent visitors. The one behind was an exit way from the kitchen and was used frequently.
Midway laid her room, followed by the store house. Whenever Aunty Agnes was out, she locked the door of the storehouse, thereby secluding the house from the kitchen which was always open but devoid of foodstuff.
The kitchen served as a reception area and guest room to not-so-important guests. There was a wall hanger by the left corner. On one side, she kept her kitchen equipment. There was a rusty looking fridge behind the door which was always locked. Ofon was fast asleep on a mat when we got in.
I had to force him to sleep. He was crying because you didn t return early, Sister Kokomma, the lady she asked to babysit him said. A candle was lit and Sister Kokomma helped me tuck my suitcase beneath the wall hanger in the kitchen before she left for her house across the street.
Edikan, this is where you would be sleeping so you better take care of my kitchen the way you take care of your bedroom at home, Aunty Agnes said. She picked up her son and carried him to her room. I hope you won t need this candle because I don t have an extra candle for my room. Go to bed! You mean go to mat? I was unsure of what she was referring to, as there was nothing in the kitchen that fit the description of a bed. I took off my shoes and lay on the mat.

There was an awkward silence between us as the elevator ascended. The door slid open and we walked into another large lobby. She stopped by the door and instructed me to go in. I closed my eyes and knocked hard. The room was quiet except for the staccato clicks of my heels on the shiny floor. He was seated in an armchair in front of a glass desk, his eyes fixed on his computer. My eyes quickly took in the room. Everything was exquisite in his office.
There was a large TV screen on mute. The walls were white, decorated with expensive-looking artefacts, and several plaques adorned the walls. Three chairs were in front of him and I pulled out one to sit. His white long-sleeved shirt made me wonder if the company had a dress code. He was typing ferociously. I sat quietly in my seat as he kept working on his computer, using that time to continue scanning the office.
I just opened a random page and copied a few paragraphs. If you love reading this blog, you are going to love the book more. My book will be out in hard copy by the weekend.
At long last! After many sleepless nights. My writing is poor, I know, but I am no author, just an amateur blogger hustling to make ends meet.

It's because I want my book to sell. This may be a spoiler, cos I kept on expecting a betrayal, so, spoiler it is. I don't remember where I saw this, it's probably in the book, but, it touched me : All I saw in those pages was a frightened girl who spent her teenage years living as an adult and her adult years trying to grow up. Good book. I'm not sure I've ever given a Nigerian book 5 stars before. I probably haven't read a lot. View 2 comments. Apr 10, Ajibola Shodipo rated it really liked it.
This is a book you want to read to gain an insight into the existential realities of Nigeria's struggling middle class. I loved the way the author did not bore the reader with needless pages of prose.
Given how concise the book was, I kid you not when I say that one sentence less could have rendered this book incomplete. The only explanation for this brilliance is that the author had a character This is a book you want to read to gain an insight into the existential realities of Nigeria's struggling middle class. The only explanation for this brilliance is that the author had a character limit - one that ended with the very last period. And oh!
It was very easy on the eyes; almost to a fault. That said, I felt the story tapered out at the last couple of chapters. Especially when she found God and got serious with, Ifeanyi, the dude she had been ignoring for the better part of the book. The fact that the author was narrating her story makes it almost needless to explore what could and what could not have been.
There were holes in the plot but there is not much one can do after being reminded that these events actually happened in real life. The book ended too well; too easily. This book did not have me developing alternate endings and theories. View 1 comment. Dec 18, Princess rated it liked it Shelves: afro-lit , e-books , recommended-read , , published-recently. I tend to shy away from the word "authentic" when it comes to describing a piece of art or a narrative voice, but no other word comes to mind after reading this book.
The narrator writes as though she's just telling you a no-frills version of her life; she could be an auntie, or a sister, or a best friend. In her hands, this story of growing up poor and struggling to find a job and "make it" in Lagos, becomes not just relatable, but flat-out hilarious in parts and poignant in others.
Her trouble I tend to shy away from the word "authentic" when it comes to describing a piece of art or a narrative voice, but no other word comes to mind after reading this book. Her troubles are familiar almost 30 and not married; God forbid! Because she was forced to shoulder the burden of a grownup in her teens, she is somewhat hardened about life, but she also has moments where she thinks and behaves like a teenager.
What was most attractive to me about this book was the narrator's voice--the voice details seemed true to what you could hear in the streets of Lagos--and that felt very heartening. We need to have more stories like these in print.
Some of the best storytellers I've met in my life would never think about writing a book--this book felt to me like a taste of what those books could be, if those storytellers had the time and the resources. Jan 28, Amaka Azie rated it really liked it. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
