POSTNATAL DEPRESSION: IT'S NOT MY PORTION


Postnatal depression thrives amongst us, yet, it is an unappreciated reality in the African society. When discussions on mental health arise, more often than not, phrases such as "God forbid" "I reject" "It's not my portion" rend the air. 
In spite of not being anyone's portion, we encounter women who suffer this disorder in

FEMALE CIRCUMCISION: THE MYTHS


Whilst perusing the comment section in one of the online fora, I came across this rather disturbing one from a certain apparently educated, young lady. She was advocating for female circumcision as a means of reducing female 'libido' and curbing promiscuity amongst the female folks.

It got me thinking... "If this educated, apparently exposed and probably informed or rather

COITUS INTERRUPTUS : WHEN SEX ENDS BEFORE FULL-TIME



Obioma and Nony have been together for about two years.
"Surely, it's time to move the relationship to the next level" Obioma reflects. To his dismay, each time he broaches the issue of settling down, Nony shies away or keeps mute throughout the one-sided discussion.
Unknown to him, Nony is aware he's playing a double game - a "no strings attached"

MAN IN THE MIRROR


I was trying really hard to concentrate on the text before me when my phone beeped. It was a link to an article and as I was quite bored, I clicked on it with disinterest. Lo and behold, it was the shock of the month. Quickly I sat up... One surely didn't take a blow lying low. I was quite dazed... It was like looking in a mirror. We had similar

CORSETS AND VAGINA WIDENING



The topic must have caught your attention isn't it? Right. Well, I don't blame you. The exact thing happened to me when I heard it.
During the interminably long public holiday, I got bored and decided to do tidy Bantu knots on my hair. Putting myself together, I headed to one of the hair making areas of town.

AZONTOTWINS :KEEPING FIT THE AFRICAN WAY


What do you do when what you've searched for far and wide appears right in front of you? In my case, being a sharp naija chic, I got proactive. When I learnt they organised fitness trainings for expatriates, corporate bodies and even held presidential suite dances. Omo, I became more committed to keeping fit. Like really, who wouldn't make fitness a priority with two well-toned, very single, very African young men as instructors? Ihe a na-acho

WHY ME???



"Never judge a person till you've walked in their shoes" they say.  When I hear of people whose  belongings have been snatched from the window of a moving vehicle I'm usually quick to think they weren't sharp enough or they had lost their wits. A lot of times I have imagined what I would do if confronted by a thief. Of course I always see myself being brave

TEETH WHITENING: FOR THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS


Good morning dearies. I hope the week has started on the right note for everyone. I have been having a lot of  wonderful and new experiences at GIMPA in Accra, Ghana. Informally I announce that I was selected as a participant for the Young African Leaders Initiative, West Africa and while I'm having the 3D or do I say 5D experience, I haven't forgotten Healthglamm

THE BURST CONDOM TRAGEDY


It was 4:30am on Monday morning and I had just returned from attending to the road traffic accident victim that was rushed in about an hour ago. The weekend call had been quite eventful and I needed to get at least two hours of sleep before preparing for work.
"Grrrgh grrrgh..." It was my phone ringing. I rolled my eyes in irritation and picked it up to
