In 2012, a floating school in Lagos’s ‘floating’ slum of Makoko was labelled as ‘illegal’ by authorities who then threatened to demolish it. This year [2014] the school, which is the brainchild of Nigerian architect Kunlé Adeyemi, was nominated for the London-based Design Museum’s Design of the Year award.

like father, further like son

idk where to begin, so i’ll dive right in the middle. my best relationship is with my old man. it’s so unlike anything and unconventional you can spot envy on faces around. he’s an open-minded liberal christian, an educator, philosopher and a whole bag of a lot of things that will one day be personified in a book i am getting down to.

he’s my world’s most favorite person. 

when we have the best of times, it’s excellent, and when it comes the other side, it’s downright ugly. like this morning.

i’ve realized it’s like conversing with my future self while he’s bent on correcting a younger self.

i am eternally grateful for the divine favor, even as the battle rages on.
