What’s up with The Lagos Fashion Week & Design 2017?

The Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2017 is currently ongoing, and so far we have seen some good designs, some interesting runway shows and some ugly models. Oh please! We all know these models aren’t always as pretty as angels. Little wonder the attention is often best focused on the clothes instead. And here’s to be frank- the clothes (as seen so far), are indeed fabulous; at least going...

Why Do Models Fall on the Runway?

Back in 2015 while walking a Givenchy runway during the New York Fashion Week, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Candice Swanepoel missed her steps and fell dramatically to the floor, injuring her pretty knees in the process. It made quite the headlines mostly for all the wrong reasons; “wrong” because it was funny and meme-worthy. But then on a more serious note, Candice’s fall  drew spotlight to some of the risks associated...

Why Is the Fashion Industry such an Elitist Circle?

Ever been interested in the fashion industry as much as I am? Perhaps the glitz and glamour of the Lagos Fashion Week fascinate you too! And of course there are the models, skinny and beautiful; gracefully-composed/poised as they walk the runways. Such sophistication! Yet, we must all agree that mainstream fashion represent the perfect example of what everybody longs for but can hardly get to have. Why is...

A Look into the charming, glamorous and Privileged Lives of Nigeria’s Super Rich

Let’s be clear about one thing- money makes the world go round! This is one truism which most of Nigeria’s wealthiest ones know so well. Theirs is the privileged kind of life! Talk about fast cars, luxury mansions and all the good things you could ever think of. I mean… Just pause for a moment and think through the fact  that while some of us had to attend grammar school, the rich kids were jetted off to exotic places such as Swistzerland to attend private schools. And even those of…...

How to Shop on a Budget in Nigeria

Shopping is something we all love to do as Nigerians. And no, we are not shopaholics; we are only human beings with a good taste for the good things of life. Over the past couple of years however, many people have had to resort to window-shopping due to the severe economic crunch the country has experienced. Unfortunately, the recession shows no signs of abating up till date, despite recent reports stating otherwise. So maybe you are one of those who currently find it difficult to check out their carts at…...

The Lagos Traffic from a Commuter’s Perspective

Sitting beside the smelly bus driver, I observed the traffic through a cracked windscreen. All the vehicles in front of me were of assorted kinds- the old, the new/expensive and the rickety ones. They all made a long stretch along the pothole-ridden road, moving at a snail’s pace. It was almost a beautiful sight, although I was too uncomfortable to dwell much on the aesthetic nature of a gridlock.Yet, I could not help but notice the yellow buses. I just am fascinated by those buses! They are my favourite part…...

Meeting a familiar Stranger on a London Train

by Emmanuel Abara Benson | October 29, 2017 | Abara's Stories Express, Uncategorized
The train made a stop to drop off some passengers. And as they disembarked, I spotted among them a man that looked very familiar. He was Mr Orji, my former employer at a private secondary school in Lagos where I had taught for one year upon graduation from the university. My eyes trailed him as he walked from the back of the train to a seat closer to the exit...

The Teacher with the big Breasts

by Emmanuel Abara Benson | October 27, 2017 | Abara's Stories Express
In my new school, there was this young female teacher whom everybody loved to hate. I bet she was disliked mainly because she was a pretty woman. Tall, skinny, fair-skinned and big-breasted, she was the envy of the rest of the teachers who were mostly females. Perhaps it was the breasts that they hated the most. After all, those were the most visible part of the young teacher. Indeed,...

The Houseboys

by Emmanuel Abara Benson | October 23, 2017 | Abara's Stories Express
Several hours after arriving at their new madam’s home, the twins got to explore the place. Mrs Ijioma’s was a three bedroom flat, located on the uppermost part of the building, and the nicest of course. It was the only flat with its own inbuilt kitchen, toilet and bathroom, and this was expected considering that this was the same flat the late Mr Ijioma lived in prior to his...
