Call ‘it’ Something podcast launch & other Life Updates.

Heyy Gem, welcome to February! My blogging break ends today! 2019 was a very creative year for me and progressive career wise. But also very hectic. I entered 2020 mentally exhausted. Although I published 3 flash stories I kept off my Instagram and WordPress.

This rest was needed. Apart from work and CDS stress; I’ve had time to introspect, reflect, do aromatherapy, rest and recharge. I’d have added tranquility but my neighbors dozen peacocks interrupt the silence with loud gawking, moans and scraping sounds. Hopefully I’ll introduce some of them to you.

I got out of my reading slum 2 days ago with Chef Cutegirl by Nicolette Dane. I’ve missed enjoying reading so I was delighted. I’d love to do a Life Update/ January Recap post. I’m still at Umuahia, Abia state for NYSC. Head over to my instastory to vote which post you want next!


Today I launched my Podcast, Call ‘it’ Something 🥳 Our first episode- MOVING IN TOGETHER is live. Here Mo and Amethyst discuss sex, relationships and self as a Queer woman living in Nigeria. I’m a co-host and we have biweekly episodes.

Give us a listen here! Get tips to help you decide to cohabit with your partner while maintaining your individuality.

My Book Date at The Cube Cafe, Abuja with Caramel

What do I love more than books, colours, nature and cute little things? Hanging out with a Gem at a book-filled cafe nestled in a garden and colorful Maitama amusement park.

Sunset Cube Album features sunset glow pictures from my hang out with Fatima at The Cube, Maitama Abuja. I met Fatima, my Caramel at ALitFest19 back in June. She attended AkeFest19 and we had a fabuously, fun time and shoot at the Art Gallery. It was immense fun to hang out with her while in Abuja doing my Call to Bar Screening.

Caramel and I(Glow baby) had honest and intimate conversations on our envisioned future, AkeFest19, The Cube, NYSC, current reads, queerness and the pictures we took haha)

The Cube has a gorgeous garden outside with flowers, young trees, shrubs, ferns, potted succulents, wooden benches, Ankara aesthetics and more.

Inside is cozy with wide range of books you can read. You can read, write and code here all afternoon! Their menu has hot & cold beverages (N1,200 upwards no VAT) and snacks.

We ordered pineapple juice (N1,500 each)

Dope playlist ✔️ Anyone can play their music for the cafe.

Free WiFi ✔️

Polite staff ✔️

Relaxing ambience ✔️

Gorgeous Decor ✔️

I looovveee the dark art/massive chalk inscribed board, books, African fabrics, book filled decor honestly.

The cute sugar pot

Books can break sugar pots y’all! I wanted to take pictures of books Fatima brought with her. The books fell on their backs and pushed the sugar pot off table. It broke and I felt so terrible. I kept saying, ‘I’m sorry but too poor to buy a new one’.🥺 The lady attending to us swept up the mess. I didn’t have to pay for it. I felt so terrible because it was so cute. Fatima made a video, it’s on my Instagram. Please don’t break anything when you visit.

Thanks Gem for looking through our Caramel x Glow Baby Sunset Cube Album and review of The Cube Café.
