Woman, So you cheated…… 

Hi guys, it’s been a minute. 2020 brought in a busy timetable for me but I am not complaining. With a Web series (Witches) to complete-a dream come into reality and then a brand-new season of ‘Lasgidi Cops SCU’ to develop has been hard work whilst looking for the Naira and travelling for School breaks.

Memory Lane? O.Y.O is your name!

Yesterday I went to visit some friends outside London to touch base after many years of not being together.  My friend Derin’s marriage had collapsed several years ago. She moved here to the UK with her children and she is still single. Her ex, however has completely abandoned his responsibilities towards the children.
