What's your State of Origin? Seems to be a common question in Nigeria especially when meeting someone for the first time. It has caused more harm than good and I share my experience and the experience of others especially as it disfavors women.

Dear Rape Apologists

Am I really your 'Aboki'?
Take it or leave it at least 90% of Nigerians have ethnic/religious bias and no matter how good we hide it, it always has a way of coming out. This episode talks about ethnic slurs that are being thrown from one ethnic group to another, using the Northern perspective.
