4 lessons I learnt from almost killing two children

My name is Chidi Okereke, and about 9 years ago, I almost killed two kids; siblings. One was 4 and the other was 7. It was in 2009, and I was a 2nd year student of the University of Port Harcourt. I had gone to my uncle’s house to spend the weekend, as was customary and before I returned...

#36DaysInRussia – The World Cup Travel Series: Dubai

(5am local time, 1am Nigerian time) If you’re like me, and you want to make the most of long trips – money and experience-wise, book a flight with a layover that is long enough for you to go into the connecting city, but short enough for you to exit before your money finishes. That is what I did. My...

#36DaysInRussia – The World Cup Travel Series: Lagos

I am spending the next #36DaysInRussia. While the World Cup is the ‘excuse’, this trip is #BeyondFootball for me. Oh, best believe I’ll be cheering the Super Eagles to success here, but this trip is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to be in one nation, connect with people from all over the world and have a first-person view of their lifestyles. It is...

One Tweet – The Power of a Single Story

Eighty three.  That is the number of emails I sent when I was looking for a job. 83 Emails containing my CV, and asking employers and HR people to help my situation. I cannot count the number of jobs I applied for via Jobberman, Naijahotjobs, and other platforms either. But guess what, only 3 replied. One was to send...

Should people who criticize the government accept contracts/jobs from them?

Should they? I’ve been seeing tweets implying that people who criticize this administration should not accept legit business contracts from them. LMAOO. You people are funny. Imagine paying tax and being told you cannot accept opportunities your COUNTRY is offering you, because you are critical of the CURRENT people leading it. Imagine somebody who owns an Advertising Company being...

Open Letter to President Muhammadu Buhari

  Dear President Muhammadu Buhari, What have we done to you? When I say ‘we’ I mean Igbo people, those ones from the South Eastern part of Nigeria – that place you have deliberately refused to visit since you became president in 2015. What have we done to you? Before you assume I am one of those wailers who...

How did I not die in 2016?

How did I not die in 2016? Pretty sure that some smart-ass somewhere will say, “it’s not too late to die in 2016”. You are mad, and I’m here to tell you. Now that we know I’m not alright, let’s do this. *** Have you ever met someone who made you want to be better? You suddenly feel like...

Is beating your child abuse or discipline?

Seeing all the tweets about how our parents raised us and while some are outrightly funny, others are thought-provoking and sad (A few at the bottom of the page). The question remains, is beating your child abuse, or is it discipline? Do these beatings have lasting effects? Are they necessary? Are there better ways to train the child that do...

Hello sir, sit your patriarchal ass down

So, someone started the never-ending “is it solely the wife’s responsibility to cook” argument today. And he was furious with his tweets. The angry chap went rambling about how our mothers used to do all the cooking while our fathers did the providing, hence his wife must comply.
