Every day life of a Nigerian Girl.

The highs and the lows, the people we meet, the places we visit, the books we read, the food we eat, the music we love… What being Nigerian is to me.


Bookish: Forbidden.

Incest. That is the major theme in this story. Everything is centred around the brother and sister falling in love and the subsequent fall out.

Bookish!

Books are my first love and so allow me to tell you about this one great love. I’ll talk about books as I read them in my Bookish! section and even write some too!

Foodie!

Food is irreplaceable! Nigerian food is exceptional! There I said it. I’m always thinking about food, dreaming at food, staring at pictures of beautiful food… Now I have you to share this with.

Gossip!

Let’s gossip! Let me tell you about my first clubbing experience, my roommates, my beauty regime, my love life, my school life, my work life, my ups and downs, my daily. I want to hear about yours too!


“We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the man. Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we donโ€™t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are”.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
