MAY

May had too much time on her hands. She had broken up with Segun a few weeks back. Suddenly, the nights felt longer even though she returned home from work late and went to bed early. Work became totally unbearable because she didn't have his Whatsapp messages to distract her or the absence of the messages to worry her. May was sure that breaking up with Segun was the best decision for her sanity. Yet, she felt lonely. She hated lonely. Lonely always made her eager. It was how she'd met Segun in the first place. 
May had received a scholarship for a master's degree at King's College London. She had moved into a  narrow room in a 7bed cluster flat in Holborn. She couldn't believe she was paying about  60,000 naira a week to sleep on a single bed and share two bathrooms with six strangers. She had heard a lot about London and imagined a fun-filled and thrilling year in the city. She had carefully chosen her dressing style and more importantly, her persona. May couldn't believe that after two weeks in London, she had only spoken to her Mum on the phone for brief minutes and exchanged a quiet and quick  hi with the only Housemate she managed to catch in the kitchen. Armed with such loneliness, May began her hunt on Facebook and then her emails, before settling to attend all the upcoming welcome drinks and events.

Emeka: Every night mama, you will be making me do this. Nneka is over there doing nothing.  I don’t know why you’re punishing me for nothing.
Mother: My son, there are great lessons in everything; you will soon understand the lessons in igniting charcoals.
Emeka: How’s there a lesson in preparing charcoal stove for cooking
Mother: My son, very soon you will understand but what I’ll plead with you, do it with all sincerity because the gain will be yours
Emeka: Ok mama. Thank you, even if I don’t understand now
(A YEAR LATER)
Emeka: Mama, I want to be the one in charge of the charcoal stove; day by day, am learning a lot from it.
Mother: Really, that is good, my son. Please do learn
Emeka: And am applying the knowledge in my day to day activities
Mother:  wow! That’s great my son. But one other thing, always cover your nose and keep your eyes far from the smokes.
Emeka: I will mama.

Hey African writers! The instructions for the Why Do You Write Campaign Season 2 is here! Last year was a hit and we had so much fun reading and showcasing all the entries. A lot of people were able to discover their true reasons for writing and it was a beautiful experience. So we are kicking off season 2 on the first of October which means deadline for submission of entries is 30th of September. This is not a campaign you want to miss. We will not process any entry gotten after the deadline. Tag all your writer friends and please repost! Let us explore our creative horizons and discover our true reasons for writing. #Whydoyouwritecampaign2 #theafricanwriters

War does not determine who is right - only who is left. Bertrand Russell. War is not the answer. It never was and it would never be.

Young, vibrant, energetic
He had stars in his eyes. 
He was untouched by the harsh reality of life. 
He knew not history. 
So he clamoured for war. 
The chant of
