Blog Announcement

Hello everyone,

I want to offer my sincerest apologies for being absent on the blog. I was on the road on Friday, which coincidentally was my birthday, so couldn’t function. I didn’t take my laptop with me, so I have only my mobile phone to work with. Where I am, there’s minimal availability of electricity, they function only on generating sets powered only a couple of times a week
And worse, there is a shortage of network.
So posts like NDUBUISI and ONE MORE TIME… AND FOREVER are going to suffer regular lateness until I get back to PH first week of July.
WHO KILLED DANA BALA? won’t be on at all because the story is on my laptop which I didn’t take along with me.
I am therefore asking that we all bear with each other this week and next and take posts the way we see them.
Thank you and Cheers.

Last Post at 39

Una know wetin wan go down tomorrow, abi?

TM about to hit 40!

That kinda shit is not easy mehn.

Abeg make I take style remind una something. I don put am for Facebook, dis one na for una. I for don do this post since morning but PHED dey show demself as usual. Mtcheew!

Anyway, e never late. I still be 39 today. So, back to reminder. Una know sai when dem born Jesus, three wise men go visit am, abi? Dem no go empty handed o… DEM CARRY GIFT.

God pikin o. Na im papa get heaven and earth, still dem carry gift. Abeg, forget all dat theology and religious meaning wey surround those gifts: Gold, frankincense and myrrh = MONEY. Simple!

Na money Dem carry go see am for im birthday.

Money… No be flower. Money… no be birthday card. Abeg, I no be oyibo. I no get time to dey smell nonsense smell. Save your birthday card. I no get space to pack junk. Na better money dem carry better money come give am.

Tomorrow… Or you even fit start this night sef. I dep available 24/7. Send me mail. Or hit me up on WhatsApp. Ask me for my account number. Surprise me with happy birthday alert tomorrow. I like dat kain surprise.

To be 40 no be moin-moin. E get age wey dem dey celebrate. 40 join am. Tap into my blessing of long life. Sow into my life dat Baba God might multiply your seed. Be generous. I repeat: be generous.

Abeg no talk sai we no be friends. Sai na only LS connect me and you. Those 3 wise men no know Jesus before dem start their journey. Na stranger im be to dem. But me and you we don dey gbadu together for LS here since tikpe-tipke. Our relationship don tey. You go fit know everybody finish for this world. As we know, don reach. And if I hear your bank alert, we knowing each other beta. Na so.

If you no fit send money, buy recharge card. My number dey here, just scroll down. You go see my MTN WhatsApp number. Send pins o. I no beg anybody for transfer. You no know whether Na only #100 I dey use for a month, so no do pass yasef. MTN recharge pins only. Again: BE GENEROUS. God loves a cheerful giver… and so does TM.

If money and recharge card hard for you. Enter okadabooks, you go see my author’s tab, buy ALL my books there. If you don buy dem before, delete dem and buy dem again. No be only one time you dey buy Gucci. You read am before no mean sai you no fit read am again. And if you no wan read again, just buy dem again. I no send!

In case you wan wish me happy birthday tomorrow, abeg cram the following words:

Extraordinary Writer
Number 1
The best of the bests
TM rocks jor

I no wan hear: “You’re cute.” I no be doll baby. “You might be chubby but…” Mba. But me no but. Achorum. Na my 40th birthday, I no want don’t-be-silly compliments. Tell me sweet things. If you no mean, still talk am, I go manage am like dat.


Remember: To show God sai im love am, Solomon kill 1000 nama; the people of Isreal give all their costly jewelleries; Mary Magdalene clean Jesus leg with expensive perfume and the 3 wise men carry expensive gifts come.

Love no be for mouth. And you no need to know me before you love me. I be your neighbour and Jesus don tell you to love your neighbour as yourself. No even worry your head sai me and you no dey practice same religion. Love no get barrier. The 3 wise men Na star gazers, no be jews o, still dem carry expensive gifts come give Jesus.

Tomorrow is the D-day. I wan to dey hear kpankam, kpankam, kpankam… #bankalert

Abeg, no lazy tell me happy birthday in advance for this post. I no dey like that kain nonsense. Come tomorrow come talk am. I go do Fabulous 40 post with pishures. Ehen!

Oya, make I go wait for una for my inbox and WhatsApp

It’s late again and I’m annoyed this time because it is really getting out of hand. But it will happen… and surely  😉

Re: Unfinished Stories

Hello blog family,

I was in the process of writing a post on the halted series No Perfect Life when I opened my email and read a comment from Tara on same subject expressing her dissatisfaction on its state of in-completion. Now, I will hesitate no longer to do that post, and to address all other halted series on Life and Spices.com. Which are, I believe: No Perfect Life, Say Yes, Margaret X and Kiss Me If You Can.

I would like to begin though by sincerely apologising for leaving these series, or stories, uncompleted. That, at all, was not my intention on the commencement of each one of these stories. I begin a story, and its posting, with a vision to enthrall you all and to bring that enthrallment to a satisfying end.

Unfortunately, I have failed to do so four times now. So, I ask your pardon for this failure.

Hello… MAY!

It’s Helloooooooo May!

Wow! We’ve beat another month and are flying our flags high up as we glide into the marvelous month of May. I simply want to wish every one: A Happy New Month. And may this month of May bring us good tidings and above all overshadow us with God’s immense graces. We will experience the wonders of His grace this month. Amen.

And for all May celebrants, whatever anniversary you are celebrating, may you find joy in your celebrations, peace in the people you have around you and success in all that you do.

It’s an amazing month. It’s started as one and it’s going to be one every single day of it. And God has a word for you today. He has a word and he has a plan for you this month of May and He says: As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand.” Jeremiah 18:6 (NKJV)

How about that? God’s all prepared to restore us. Whatever we have lost, whatever has been taken from us, whatever we are lacking, He is saying: I am your Potter, I am here to restore you. Amazing, right?

So, I have a little thought for you and here it is:

Just a simple reminder that being YOU is the best you can be.

So, Welcome to May and know ye that we are getting back to full business here. It’s going to be “one-at-a-time”, no pressures, no hassles, no overdoing it. Just do-it-the-fun-way all the way and as many times as we can during the week… and weekends too, lol.

I am going back to work. There’s some news that light is going to get back to what it used to be: manageable. So, I’m thankful for that. Think I’d be working mostly at nights… God give me grace and wisdom and inspiration. Amen.

It’s always amazing knowing YOU are here with me and I wish you a grace-filled joyful month of May. Be happy, be hopeful and be you.

Love y’all.


Happy Easter

As he said he would, Jesus is risen from the dead. He’s alive again!

May the risen Christ bring happiness to you and your family all year round. And may you all find the renewal of hope, health, love and the spirit of God. May all your sorrows come to an end and may you have cause never again to weep. May joy and everlasting hope be your portion now and forevermore.

Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy Easter and a continuous blessed year.

*** ~~~ *** ~~~ *** ~~~ ***

SY will continue tomorrow. Let us enjoy Easter Day with our loved ones.


something new for Easter

TM’s still on break.

I thought I’d say that first. Lol.

Hello, good people. How’s everyone who’s anyone doing? Gotten over the BBN fever? Cured now? Mystiq?… *side-eyes-at-you*

So, it’s Holy Week… as we Catholics term it. It is the week that closes the Lenten season and opens the door to the season of Easter and the celebration of Christ’s Resurrection. Who’s looking forward to Easter Sunday? I am now. I’ve been much blessed this season by a family that truly loves me and have got my back no matter what. Hope you are getting blessed too.

Anyhoo, cos it’s Easter and I just can’t bear to leave you guys lonely… someone grab my halo and slide it over my head, please   . Yeah, yeah, thank you. That’s me, sweet, saintly TM who can’t leave her peeps lonely. No, haven’t got the good heart, gentle soul and… all right, you get the picture… it’s up there.

Something new for Easter week. Something new and something short. A Romantic Fantasy short story of five parts. Much like Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, only one part longer. A Fantasy short story embellished with the atmosphere of Romance.


Our heroine gets into a cab, pipes out which direction she’s headed and sits back for the car to move. But instead of kicking the car into gear, cab driver a.k.a hero turns over one shoulder and says to her: Say Yes.

Like… WT…H!

Is he nuts? Our heroine is certainly considering that possibility as she scrutinizes him head to… well, it’s mostly head because of the limiting car factor. You get?

She debates with him. It’s mostly a one-sided debate as hero hasn’t much to say except to keep parroting: Say Yes. Finally, exasperated… like who wouldn’t be? *rme* Heroine considers getting out of the car but its pouring like the heavens are weeping for a lost angel and she can’t storm out. Just to humour him, she purses her lips, arches her well-trimmed eyebrows and says: Yes.

And what do you think happens next?

Now that is where our Romantic Fantasy short story begins… and I know you want to know all about it. So… tune in tomorrow 12.04.17six hundred hours… *calm down*… That is simply: 6 a.m. Be here tomorrow at 6 a.m. and SAY YES would have preceded you… and asking you to read it.

Other parts of the story will be posted: Thursday, 13.04.17Saturday, 15.04.17Sunday, 16.04-17… we can’t miss Easter Sunday, people! This whole thing is about keeping you entertained that day… duh! And… Tuesday, 18.04.17. All @: 6 a.m. … not a second later.

I know you don’t want to miss it, so I’m just gonna say: Get your reading glasses ready!

After our short story, TM will go back to her break until after her birthday and we will continue “rolling along” on this blog.

SAY YES… it takes only YES to make magic.
