6 things 2017 taught (or reminded) me.

 

I’m always in my own head. When I’m awake, asleep, whatever. I’m always pondering over something or the other, asking questions. Why did that happen? Why did he do this?

Funmi “Iyawolangbe” Alaga Extraordinaire; how a young girl rose above her circumstances

My name is Olufunmilayo Omolabake Ajibade (nee Balogun) I was born into a Muslim background on the 16th June 1986. My parents broke up when I was just 2 years old. That separation led me to start living with my uncle and his wife, which is my paternal uncle.
