There’s No Real Formula to Getting Married
There’s No Real Formula to Getting Married

Unless you have access to Love Potion #9 there is no way you can make someone marry you…for true love anyway. Kikky BadAss got married and her bride price was a major hot topic online. Among the jesters and trolls were women who aren’t married yet and some who aren’t even dating. "I was not married for US 500" Kikky…

It’s Not Always Rainbows and Butterflies
It’s Not Always Rainbows and Butterflies

I reached a new level of low this last quarter. I came back from the experience of a lifetime and malfunctioned. Things got so bad, I started wondering if I was cursed with bad luck. I was up late on Google pulling Tarot cards online to see what the actual heck was going on with me. Of course, the cards…

Here’s What I Don’t Get…
Here’s What I Don’t Get…

Here’s what I don’t get, you apply for your child to be admitted into a school knowing full well that the school has been Catholic for the past 120 years. You applied to it anyway and now that you are enrolled, you suddenly have a problem and kick a fuss about that school IMPOSING it’s religious beliefs on your child.…

God Already Created Men, Why Should You?
God Already Created Men, Why Should You?

Nobody’s perfect, we know this. It’s a tired alibi for people that don’t want to change or want to make excuses for their shortcomings. Based on this aged adage, women are driven to Alladdin it and find that diamond in the rough. So you find a pauper and love him into a prince only for him to leave you in…

Sometimes the Dead Beat Dad Comes Back
Sometimes the Dead Beat Dad Comes Back

So Boity popped off on the #UtatakhoRemix and I was reeling with emotion. I knew I had to write a whole blog post about absent fathers and deadbeat dads. When @Boity said "my Dad was alive but his presence wasn't so my mom was everything that he wasn't.. I could never be the one to ever judge him cause I…

Are the People Around You Ruining Your Life?
Are the People Around You Ruining Your Life?

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been down with a bug. Yesterday it got so bad that I finally went to the clinic with Mr. W. I had severe headaches, joint pains, nausea, diarrhoea, fever, shortness of breath and all sorts of discomfort. During that time, people continues to text me needing something or another and my unread messages…

What It’s Like Living in a Voodoo Home
What It’s Like Living in a Voodoo Home

It’s almost like waking up to find a 5 litre bottle of water and not knowing what it’s for. With the water shedding crisis you wonder is it for drinking? Is it sea water? Is it prayer water that you received from the mountain and you have to bath with it for three sunsets while facing the East and chanting…

Demonising Virginity
Demonising Virginity

There was a renowned pervert living in our neighborhood growing up. He was amazing with the mothers but a nuisance to the young girls. In my house he was always referred to as ‘Perv.’ Everyone was well aware of his interests and kept him out of the house. A girl I grew up with from down the road was sent…

Breakfast Made Me Fat & Sluggish
Breakfast Made Me Fat & Sluggish

I used to watch a soapie called Backstage when I was little. On Backstage, they had a morning radio program called Juice, and the opening billboard would say, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, with juice.” Do you see what they did there? Growing up, this assumption of breakfast being the most important meal of the day…

The Fathers are Embarrassing Us
The Fathers are Embarrassing Us

Bumped into a story online about how Diddy is dating his son’s ex-girlfriend. I thought what in the Kalanga tradition is this? We sat in the car and listened to Elliot justify that Lori Harvey is a baddie and that a young man can’t handle her. She needs matured males not like her other ex, Trey Songz. Apparently Steve Harvey’s…

Why They’re Sleeping With Your Husband
Why They’re Sleeping With Your Husband

I watched a video of a wife beating up her husband’s mistress. I couldn’t make out some of the Shona but there was a hammer, pair of scissors and the wife’s kid who also joined in on the assault on camera. Goes to show the calibre of woman that does this sorta thing. I went through the comments section below…

I’ll Take Your Man!
I’ll Take Your Man!

This blog post is for my kleptomaniacs who have sticky fingers for other people’s husbands. I’m not judging, I know nothing about your relationships and thus I’m not allowed to have an opinion. What I do have, however, is a playlist of my favourite I’ll take your man songs. 1. Salt n Pepa – I’ll take your man I first…
