My encounter with the devil in Blantyre, Malawi

Braxwell Opportunity Topa Mukuhuzira (aren't Malawians crazy with names or what!) picked me at Chileka International Airport in Blantyre. A good humouredly chap carrying a permanent smile on his face, and a curious scar underneath his chin, Topa was gracious enough to drop me at Sunbird Mount Soche Hotel. But not before he plainly cracked my ribs on the way. He owns an old-rusty jalopy that is literally held together by pits of paint and rust, and talks without stopping as if he swallowed one of those cheap four batteries shiny wooden Sanyo radios.

Don't admire a woman with beautiful breasts if you have no money

Recently, my childhood friend, Abuya Abuya, who says that his name is so sweet you have to say it twice, invited me to a party in Nairobi's Donholm Estate. It was a party to celebrate one of his girlfriend’s friend, Eva, for graduating with some online degree in applied biometric nutrition. Yes, such courses exist.

The prostitutes of God

For those familiar with the Nairobi night-life once the day melts into darkness have certainly seen them. They normally stand in groups of either twos, threes or more along specific streets in Nairobi as they desperately attempt to wave down motorists.

Why African women rock

Im not going to mince words. I love me some African woman. I love her attitude, passion, strong will, intelligence, independence and free spirit.

Why I cheated on my woman...

"I consider myself to be a loyal chap. You know someone faithful to his woman. But then it finally happened to the best of me. I cheated on my woman. I didn't plan for it. Shit just happened. All I know I woke up in the morning naked in her bed."

Most African families are a gang of leeches, and it needs to stop

Early this week Emmanuel Adebayor, a celebrated Togo international footballer who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur in Britain revealed the financial burden of supporting his family as well as ongoing conflicts. His bare knuckle revelation stunned most people, partly because of his audacity to go public about what most will regard as personal family issues.

Message to men: No woman has time to babysit your ego

He has an ego so big it can’t fit in his own huge head. He walks with a swagger as if he owns the universe. He speaks smoothly, yet with a tinge of self-entitlement, you would easily be confused to conclude that he is the Messiah for all women.
