I am from a calabash, from marbles and cotton wrappers. I am from the rainy plains. I am from the guava tree, the palm oil plantation. I am from the tales by moonlight and singing choruses, from Theresa and Mark. From “clumsy” and “don’t go out”. I am from Lagos with Delta origins, Gari and fish pepper soup. From Faith and generosity. From poverty and gender equality. I am from the waterside, from never giving up, from laughter and good humour.
