I Love Me An Expressive Woman

Semi nude! Usually, I try to stay out of stuff like this but I’ll make an exception. While what I’m saying may just be my opinion, it will certainly include some facts. We live in a society where our Nigerian men have set unreasonable expectations for women to follow and adhere to. Anything outside of the conversational thought process get […]

Benue Is Bigger Than Ortom And Suswam

When and how on earth did we manage to reduce this giant entity called Benue state to some trivial concept known as Ortom vs Suswam?
