Whenever I listen to the song ‘Refiner’, by Maverick City Music, I pause and ask myself, am I really ready to be tried by fire? omo… But thinking about it, even Jesus had to go through fire in the garden of Gethsemane where he cried out asking if it was possible for the cup to […]
“Bunmi, can you believe I have never received a Valentine’s gift in my entire years of living in this world?”
“Lol Simi, why are you now sounding like that.”
“Like you have been robbed of something valuable.
Like you just found a deformity in your body.

I got to share this amazing piece “Is it true?’ on the “Creative Kloud” channel. It was inspired by the story of Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego and how we are constantly faced with the same question of compromise even today. Be blessed. And oh, by the way, this spoken word poem was part of my […]
Did your chest beat fast everytime you walked through the door and they said “Oh boy we’ve been waiting for your swearing in ceremony since that annointing service 5 years ago o?” And then they giggle, hand holding mouth, failing woefully at suppressing the laughter spewing from the corner of their lips.

Of course I am angry! In fact I write this fuming and fanning the beads of sweat running a rat race on my face. It is not funny at all. Would you believe that I came all the way with my high heels, giving myself motivational speech about how I should endure the pain for […]
O boy, This is how it usually happens o. Sweet breeze kissing your skin from the open window. A longing stare at the moving people, buildings, bill boards and boom!Sleep knocks at your eye lids, just like that, or is it just me? Have I ever told you, that I enjoy sleeping in a moving […]
Dear woman is a love letter written to today’s woman whilst raising a toast to yesterday’s woman. You are heard, you are seen. Keep walking with God even as He orders your steps. Cheers to womanhood. Enjoy:
“Let us have a moment of silence” is normally connoted with sad announcements of death. But “let us have a moment of silence”, could also be applied to save someone from death. This piece explores the importance of our own silence. The need to pause, look around and be a shoulder for someone who is […]
I am posting this here for the purpose of posterity and curation. I do not know if I will perform this piece ever again because of the weight of the emotions and the memories it holds. My heart goes out to all the lives that were lost in the month of October, 2020 during the […]
