Your parents had a lot to tell you when you were going off to the university, but the one thing they kept hammering on was the need for you to face your academics squarely and not allow some boy or girl to make you lose focus. Deep inside you were like LOL. You had a […]

We are putting it to you right now that answering a few questions can determine the subject you will be in charge of if you go down the teaching path. And no, you don’t have to wander off in search of a psychologist or psychic to find this out; this quiz is all you need:

The world has gone digital, right? You would think so until it’s time to register for something like your Permanent Voter’s Card or the National Identity Card, and you have to submit yourself physically to a venue. But you won’t just waltz in and out; prepare for a day characterised with pushing and shoving, verbal […]

You probably liked falling sick when you were young. Maybe not the “stay-in-bed-until-you-get-better-part”, but you liked all the attention that came with it. You got a pass on almost everything, and more importantly, you got everything you wanted from your parents. You were probably even amused with how agitated they got seeing you down. You […]

So many things happen when it rains in Lagos; traffic becomes a lot madder, NEPA, or whatever they call themselves now take light, you are forced to cancel the meticulous plans you’d made, but these are nothing compared to watching the water level in your house rise into a raging sea, making you wonder if […]

You think you know the true value of money until you leave home for school. No, not your Secondary School hostel. The University, The Polytechnic, or anywhere else you have to spend a few years without your parents or anyone, really, breathing down your necks. The good thing about this is you could do whatever […]

Pete Edochie, Patience Ozokwor, Chinwetalu Agu, and Segun Arinze are some of the best villains Nollywood have gifted us. These actors mastered the art of playing the bad guys that it would be hella weird if they played anything else. Now, you might just be the one fit to fill their shoes and continue where […]

It all began with a poll. But Nigerians wouldn’t have it, because Frank is in a league of his own, right? Of course, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was the only thing parents didn’t have to force their kids to watch on the NTA network. As someone who begrudgingly watched a lot of the […]

It’s been on the news for weeks, or maybe months, each report drawing more people to it. The dark mode feature is the newest sensation, especially since it took a chunk of coverage in the iOS 13 and Android 10 OS roll-outs, and let’s not forget that it is on Windows 10 and MacOS as […]

The Nigerian rap scene is pretty exciting right now, with some of the top rappers having a go at each other. Vector and M.I are currently getting the most buzz, due to the release of their diss tracks, “The Viper” and “Judas The Rat.” You can get actively involved, too, and attempt to write your […]
