Read the first episode HERE
My father was just normal. So far I came back home in one piece, he was almost okay with me even if that one piece was much thinner than four months ago.

Few hours later when the homecoming party had died down, I was resting on my bed when I heard a knock on my door.

Kofo is a young aspiring musician. He meets Blessing, a 100 level student of the University of Ibadan at a musical concert featuring 2face Idibia. It was love (or was it lust) at first sight.

He was a one-man…

This is a place where you will hear the story of Ayelawaje Kofoshi but he is usually called Kofo. Who is Kofo? Kofo is a young man who has few things to do in life but many ways of doing them. One of the few things he likes to do is run after ladies and women. Kofo loves his girls and his girls love him. Kofo is smart, witty, and vulnerable to his girls. He is a type of guy you will call a chick magnet. Handsome in his own right and super confident.
