Day 11: Osetemega Iribiri

I can come up with a thousand and one reasons not to write this memoir but they’d be silly and buttered with ungratefulness. The scripture that says the path of the just shines brighter and brighter is what characterised this year for me. I came into a new realm with new realities. The peace and […]

Day 10: Ibukun Awodehinde

Sometimes I ruminate on why God created the family as the first institution. I believe the family is the foundation and bedrock of every other thing that’s needed to lead a fulfilling life on this terra firma. In Deuteronomy 33:7, Moses the man of God prayed for the tribe of Judah and said: “Hear, Lord, […]

Day 9: Ortega Alikwe

I am a man transformed by prayer, and it began at age 15, before then I was more of a Scalar quantity- A body having great magnitude and no direction; I did whatever I wanted to do without purpose or reason, but my mother and elder sister took it upon themselves to pray me into […]

Day 8: Tomiwa Babajide

2020 – MY YEAR OF PAINFUL GROWTH Adepero Thank you, Adepero, for this opportunity. You inspire me in many ways. Keep burning and shining, light of the world. After NYSC, What Next?

Day 7: Sunshine

Disclaimer: To fully grasp the context and emotions portrayed in this epistle, I’ll be putting links to songs that conveyed how emotions were at that phase of the story. 2020 : THE YEAR OF SURPRISES Well, since COVID-19 started from 2019, it’s only fair to start this story from 2019. Before I officially start, I […]

Day 6: Olakunmi Ogunyemi

2020 has been a lot. At this point, it feels like saying that is now routine but I don’t think I’d ever not say it. Several times a day I catch myself saying ‘omooooooooooooooooooooo’ in the midst of work or just random chores. While I still hold that ‘2020’ itself is innocent as it’s just […]

Day 5: Temitope Fowowe

First off I want to say thank you Adepero for letting me feature on her blog. RE-BRANDING “What’s the tears for…? You asked for it and I gave it to you and all you have chosen to do is cry. That’s surely a way to say thank you I suppose” That’s the voice of the Holy […]

Day 4: Opeyemi Ojo

I just want to first of all thank God for giving me the courage to write this piece. Thank you Pero for the opportunity to share, more like the testimony of God in my life in this “ki lo n sele?” year (for my non yoruba peeps, what is happening again year? ). I’m so […]

Day 3: Sophia Oyedele

Major Highlight: In 2020, I finally got married to my best friend of 8years, 9 months and 12 days (9thMarch, 2012-21st November, 2020). I remember the year 2008 like yesterday. I was in SSS2 and my Economics teacher would always talk about Vision 2020. Back then, it looked like the so much anticipated 2020 was […]

Day 2: Sandra Chimeh

Hello Perry’s Tots Nation, Thanks for another opportunity to share my year’s experience, I’m honoured. God bless you. As I sat to put pen to paper, a surge of thoughts swept through me; “What was I thankful for”?, “Did I get all I asked for in the year 2020″?. These thoughts unsettled me, but just […]
