UNIVERSE CITY – episode 4 (friends, acquaintances and fans)

Daniel stared on at this man who had been talking for the last ten minutes, studying the movement of his lips rather than listening to what he was saying “And come to think of it, this opportunity also gives you a platform which you can use to reach out to our audience and possibly convert them into yours.

UNIVERSE CITY – episode 3 (your girlfriend is a popular jingo)

Maraji looked at the mirror as she applied the last of her anti-pimples cream to her face.

Choices by Nwachukwu Olusegun

Choices Gray day. The sky and the earth had kissed once more, for the sky seemed to miss the earth—and it expressed this as it poured rain incessantly. ‘Chai! Look at this man! Very wicked.
