There are times when we are constantly bombarded with information from every corner, majority of which are bad news. You turn on your television and someone appearing hysterical is staring back at you. You tune in to a radio station and there is a sad, pathetic song hitting the air waves. Try ...
From the chronicles of the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the Ex-factor had me every single time. If there was any song that could adequately depict the picture of unrequited love, it was it. Rejection in romantic relationships is an interesting one because it cuts across the borders of race, ...

Anyone who follows me on Twitter and is an active timeline-scroller will notice that - amongst several things - for the past few weeks, I have been ranting about the 2014 Ban Bossy campaign, an initiative designed to encourage young girls and women to be bold enough to speak up and take up ...
Why do we all have the inherent tendency to complicate even the simplest of things? Why are our minds conditioned to think that the more complex a solution, the better? You want a house, but just cannot and will not acquire any kind of house -you have certain ‘out-of-this-world’ specifications ...

Isio Wanogho - March 2014 - BellaNaija
I sincerely lay no claims to being more knowledgeable than anyone, but I do confess that I know better than I did yesterday, last year and a decade ago. Isio Knows Better is an attempt to capture the shocking and highly entertaining conversation within myself. The conversations between my mind ...
Scarcely has the blood dried from the singed floors of Nyanya Car Park, has time mended the broken bodies injured in the first bombing. Scarcely have we finished nursing our maimed spirits, our collective angst, has the tape to cordon off the first massacre site been removed. The charred ...
A Nigerian guy and his Caucasian girlfriend moved into our house last weekend. Last night as they were having dinner, she asked him if he had heard of the over 200 girls that were taken from Nigeria. He said he had,'since last week'. Then she said... "but it's in the news because nobody seems ...
In many societies, the traditional role of providing for the family is that of the man. Today, however, harsh economic realities are forcing lots of families to rely on two income streams, making it imperative for women work and/or run businesses. Modern society has seen many women getting ...
I am scared with the dimension our country has taken. Insecurity is very rampant, fear is prevalent and our security outfits are helpless. But beyond all these, is the anger I sense many of us feel with politicians who care more about the coming elections, than us. I want to make a personal ...

Identity - it’s a difficult thing. Some are lucky, they are able to shape, nurture and develop theirs, with limited interruptions from others. Not everyone is that fortunate. My first guest on the show, Yvonne Edozien, is an albino. There’s no hiding it. Once you see her, you immediately ...
I stirred from what had been a deep sleep, awakened by loud voices and bangs. It must have been about 11pm but I knew even then that I must have been asleep for at least 3 hours. I looked around the room, my baby sister was fast asleep, oblivious to all the noise I could hear now so clearly. I ...

All the articles or the books you have been reading from me are obviously my silent thoughts. However, there is one of those several thoughts that stands out all the time. I can’t stop thinking about this and it just will not stop coming back. It hits hard when it comes, and it is really not ...
How many times have we heard people say, "Never cross an ocean for someone who won't jump a puddle for you." Countless, I guess and I am sure that you believe this mantra by now. True as this may be, I would like us to look at this issue from a different side. It is the side of the person who ...
My first brush with authority was when I was in JSS3. We were preparing for the JSCE examinations- and as was the norm, everyone was sourcing for ‘dubs’. I can point to this moment as when I realised the endemic nature of the corruption in Nigeria. I could not bring myself to use any of these ...
