After her grandmother died in 2018, Tega realised she’d never get a chance to eat her signature dish ever again. She shares the reality of accepting that death comes with a lot more than losing people we love. Sometimes, it’s the food they loved to cook too.

Women are hardly ever wrong, but let’s talk about the few times they might have been. And the reasons why that happened.
Today’s subject on #Zikokowhatshesaid is @fehinlean, a 30-year-old Nigerian woman. She talks about her childhood love for motorcycles, why she waited until she was 28 to ride one and handling the stares when people realise she isn’t a man, on her biking trips across the country.
