Once upon a time in my country, Nigeria, there was a ruler who was dreaded by many... We resisted and said No to every oppressive action or word to any weak or voiceless Nigerian... This is the time to stand firm on what has held the world together - Love.

Olutosin-with-Jensine

I allowed my tears to flow in Jensine's arms, not because I am sad but because there are thousands of Olutosins... thinking about whether to sacrifice the cyber café charges for breakfast or for sisterhood.
