Coming Back to Africa


It's 3.am, and I am awake, safely strapped on my seat, waiting for the plane to descend.

 My eyes are wide open, heart racing like Usain Bolt, mind lost in grandma's words.
"We would go to the Oba's palace during the Nchakah Festival and dance round the streets of Omoku during Christmas."

Grandma loved to reminisce about her happy moments back home before she was cargoed across the sea. The tales of her trip made me cringe yet her wish to return home made me smile.

Postmortem, Grandma is coming back to Africa - in the body of her granddaughter.

  1. There are many different reasons why people wear hair bundles wholesale. Whether it's to make a fashion statement, become part of a costume, or replace hair that you have lost, purchasing a virgin brazilian hair uk is no simple task. There are more choices than just determining a cut and color. People are now faced with the option of brazilian human hair bundles. We all know cheap products tend to be cheaply made, but when is it justified to spend the big bucks on a wig. Money is always the ultimate deciding factor when buying something, unless you have the good fortune of being a lace wigs uk. The bottom line is that synthetic wigs are always cheaper than human hair. Synthetic wigs obviously don't look as realistic as brazilian hair uk. An inexpensive wig is also not properly wefted. Wefting refers to the hair being sewn evenly into the piece.
