I identify myself as being Nigerian however I have often found myself so far removed from certain aspects for
Hi darlings, it’s been a moment! I haven’t been away, in fact it is quite the contrary, I have simply been sooooooo busy. Life has been incredibly busy over the last few months, in between trying to consistently slay the gram, be a dutiful friend, a lover to “bea” and an amazing sister to my family.
