Welcome


*Drumroll*…
Welcome to my Blog!
I finally decided to suck it up and create a web log. This is where I write about subjects I have interest in, carrying you readers along at the same time.

Reason for delay
I was trying to find out what I was EXPECTED to blog about, instead of just doing what I actually want to do. I also couldn’t decide on the one subject to blog on (e.g travel, art, cooking, music, etc). Both led me to combine four different areas I would be writing about on this blog.

What you will see on this blog
LIT SPACE: Here you’ll find poems, short stories, Flash fiction, Book Reviews, Featured stories and literary news.
MOVIE/DRAMA REVIEW: As the title suggests, this is analysis and criticism of movies and drama. No spoilers, except indicated otherwise
MUSIC: Here I share my favourite tracks every week, with their lyrics and download links
 There will be guest posts and featured posts, and sometimes, a blog post might not fall under any of the above categories- just something a bit different!

Alright then, let’s go!
Yours,
S

It has also been nominated for an Academy Award, won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film (2020) and won the SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture (2020). One of the things I find so great about this movie is the number and sheer quality of plot twists that were part of it. So important were these plot twists, that the director, Bong Joon-Ho, intentionally excluded a great

WHY I SPENT THREE MONTHS READING ONE BOOK

When I got this book in February, I had no idea it would take me this long to finish. I hadn’t even heard about the book before, as it was published over 10 years ago, when I would have been to young to appreciate it. However, I was book shopping, and two things attracted me to it. First- that it was written by one of my favourite Nigerian authors, Helon Habila; and secondly, that it won the Caine Prize, which is a pretty big deal if you ask me.   Mamo and LaMamo, twins born in Northern Nigeria are raised mostly by their aunt, and partly by their father. Each followed a very different path from the other, having contrasting personalities. While the one is outspoken and radical, the other is more reserved and intuitive. LaMamo goes off to war; Mamo is held back by sickness. The long separation makes the brothers respect and admire each other’s differences.   Each twin finds himself held down by something that proved not to be what it seemed. LaMamo wants to fight, to be a
