The truth is this: Before I met you, I must admit, there were other ladies. I know I may not have told you about them before, and I’m sorry. There were quite some of them at school, church, and on the street, especially along F-Division road. They were ladies I really liked, maybe some of them from afar though, but I really didn’t just want another lady, or every other lady out there. I wanted a lady who was different and unique, who was not common and can be found just anywhere. I desired a lady in a class of her own; one with surprises, weird, and abnormal. I didn’t just want those religious looking people, who act and dress like they just had breakfast with God, yet in reality, they are far from him. Likewise, I didn’t want just the average Brazilian hair(thanks to Germany), empty brain, breast opening, laps revealing girl. I wanted a lady with class who knows her father as humbly and sincerely as possible.
Even though I fell-in-like with many good ladies, I was willing to wait for you, and I determined to refrain my sweet lips and poetic declarations from every other until I found you.
And on that day we had our first serious conversation, as you were sincere with me about your weaknesses, mistakes, and failure, I wanted to be the man to patiently wait and make up for them. Your background, personality, look, intelligence, perspectives, all made me fall in Like and Love with you.
I know there are more than one of such ladies like you, I know my friend Tayo has got one, and Plove will be getting married to one soon…(to mention a few), and other ladies like Moremi, Oreoluwa, Ibukun…(to mention a few), I can only thank God I found mine too in you. And you too reading this.
My point is, I appreciate the effort you have put in making yourself a little bit more than the average girl on the street.
Adeola-mi, the Lady I Love.

There are conversations that are well beyond the boundaries of ‘pen on paper’. Some heartfelt and straight-up words that provide context to concepts. That’s what this podcast is about. Here are my musings on Love, Life, and Faith as I probe human thoughts and thoughts around these themes. Sometimes, I’m right. Sometimes, I way out of line. And at other times, I’m just as clueless. Trust me, It’s going to be a funny, yet insightful, and inspiring ride. Buckle your seat belts.
Ever heard of that song that says it is impossible for a butterfly to extinguish a barbecue fire? Well, that’s a true saying, but…..
There are truly impossible things, but only within given contexts. Seasons change, miracles happen, content changes, change happens, discoveries are made, and what seems to be impossible becomes possible.
