Wasn't sure how to come back to the blog since I have been inconsistent this last few months, April and May to be precise, so I settled for a quick life lately to bring you up to speed on what's been happening with me lately. You probably already know about my birthday trip to Cotonuo, Benin Republic in April, so...

In the past, I used the editing option on Anchor to edit my podcast audio, but as I have grown, I found a better option for editing my podcast using Adobe Audition. Adobe Audition is an audio editing software that allows me to record, mix, clean, and edit my audio. I started using this software in late 2020 and it...
How I promote my podcast
May 19 marks 2 years I started podcasting and it’s been an amazing journey. A journey that has taught me so much brought me in contact with great people and served as an avenue for numerous opportunities.

kalakuta museum
Can’t remember exactly where or how I heard about Fela’s house, Kalakuta Museum, but I remember being fascinated about the thought of visiting where the famous Fela lived and I made mental note to visit once I had an opportunity.You would think that my experience at Fela’s Shrine would have me running at the mention of the name Fela,...

Fidjrosse beach, Cotonuo

I am glad we made that decision because, that leaves something for me to look forward to when visiting...

Day 2 in Cotonou started a little different from Day 1 which was spent mostly on the road; it was my birthday, we paid a visit to Bab’s Dock, and went night clubbing. I know that seems like a lot, so allow me break it down and explain how we were able to achieve that in one day. The day started...

visit to bab's dock
Whoops, I am a 24 years old woman. Me??!! Didn’t I just clock 20 the other day, how am I 24 now?

Turning 24 for me signifies ‘Becoming...
