Going Higher


After a rigorous time spent watching online lectures from Professor Fisher, the American professor in charge of the Copyright X classes from the Harvard Law School, going for class discussions with the professors at the Advanced Legal Studies department of the University of Lagos, studying and burning the midnight oil, I stand tall to say that it was a time well spent on acquiring knowledge for the improvement of the entertainment, software and literary society in Nigeria.

I am optimistic about passing this exam because I studied well for it.

Surely, I am going higher, climbing the ladder of success and greatness in the areas of my passions; music, creative writing and business consulting.

When was the last time that you studied for a course? Learning never stops until we go six feet below.

20 people who became successful entrepreneurs from 40 upwards




Running a business isn’t easy. It takes hard work and discipline to reach success. As a result, it should be unsurprising that many times, it is the older and wiser among us who are better at navigating that road. So don’t count yourself out, no matter what age you are. Success can come to anyone at any time.
 
That depressing saying, “A fool at 40 is a fool forever,” no longer holds water. My father says that a lot. He does not see how my music is going to butter my daily bread and make me successful. He introduces me to his friends and extended family members as his first daughter who is a business consultant. No, he will not say that I am also a musician and a writer. Those are ‘below standard careers’.

The twenty people that I am going to write about now started their businesses after the age of 39. Only one of them started his business at the age of thirty-five but he did not make real headway in his business until he was forty-one.

I intend to do a research about Nigerian entrepreneurs who started their businesses after 40. Hopefully, that will not be their football age.

So, if it looks like you have not achieved much at age 39, like myself, there is still hope for an overall success from age forty that will last forever.

1. Donald Fisher co-founded Gap at 41

In August 1969, at the age of 41, Donald Fisher and his wife Doris opened their first Gap store on Ocean Avenue in San Francisco. At the time, they only sold Levi’s jeans.

The Gap quickly expanded to new locations and in 1974, introduced its own denim label. 

In 1991, it stopped selling Levi’s entirely. Though it’s not without its struggles, the $9 billion company continues to endure today.
 

2. Lynda Weinman co-founded Lynda.com at 40

The self-taught computer whiz and former graphic arts professor recognized early on the potential of the internet and the need for her students to learn how to publish to the web. 

In 1995, after struggling to find a book on web design to recommend to her students, she decided to write her own. 

Designing Web Graphics sold hundreds of thousands of copies and was the springboard to what would become Lynda.com, an Internet based training company she started with her husband Bruce Heavin. It was sold to LinkedIn in April 2015 for $1.5 billion.


3. Herbert Boyer co-founded Genentech at 40

A biochemist and genetic engineer, Herbert Boyer, along with geneticist Stanley Cohen, was first to demonstrate the usefulness of recombinant DNA technology in commercial medicine, laying the groundwork for what would become Genentech, a pioneer in the biotechnology industry. 

When venture capitalist Robert A. Swanson got wind of Boyer’s breakthrough, he requested a meeting and was given 10 minutes that turned into three hours and the end result: Genentech was launched. 

Though Swanson and Boyer faced skepticism in the early days they forged ahead, creating a whole new industry that’s still alive and kicking.


4. Bob Parsons started GoDaddy at 47

Former U.S. Marine Bob Parsons had started two companies — one of which was Parsons Technology, a software company he sold to Intuit for $64 million in 1994 — before he launched GoDaddy , the $4 billion web domain registrar. 

It was after taking a year off as part of his deal with Intuit that Parsons realized he didn’t want to retire. 

He started GoDaddy in 1997 to have “something to do.” Since then he has followed one philosophy: “make a little money from a lot of people. This differs from many companies who have just the opposite philosophy,” says Parsons in his online biography. Parsons stepped down as executive chairman in June 2015.


5. Chip Wilson began Lululemon at 42

For Chip Wilson, it was his first yoga class back in 1997 that sparked the idea for a line of comfortable, stylish women’s yoga wear. 

Wilson had recently sold his share in Westbeach, a snowboard apparel company and smartly bet he could use the same stretch fabric they used for long underwear to make high-end yoga pants that would appeal to the masses. 

It was both his ability to find a problem and come up with a solution and his experience in apparel that enabled him to not only create yoga pants that were comfortable and appealing to the eye but transform an entire industry. 

In February 2015, following a major recall, a series of controversial comments about women’s bodies and a standoff with the company’s board, Wilson cut ties with Lululemon . His wife and son launched Cashmere Shop Kit & Ace in 2014. 

6. Momofuku Ando, noodles at 48
The Taiwanese entrepreneur was 48 when he invented the food that would eventually become a staple for children and adults. He created, instant ramen noodles. 

He began experimenting with the food product in 1958 behind his house in Ikeda, Japan.

7. Thomas Siebel co-founded Siebel Systems at 41

For Thomas Siebel, it was his experience at Oracle and the money he made as CEO Gain Technology that enabled him to co-found Siebel Systems in 1993 with Patricia House, a former marketer for Oracle. 

During his years at Oracle, Siebel’s knack for selling propelled him up the ranks. Recognizing inefficiencies within the sales group, he developed a program dubbed Oasis in 1987 that streamlined communication among the sales reps. 

Two years later, he spoke to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison about commercializing it externally; Ellison didn’t see the potential. 

Siebel took a leave of absence soon after and never returned. His next role was as CEO of Gain Technology, a small multimedia software company he quickly sold for $110 million in 1992. Netting $10 million from the deal, he set up his own shop. 

Siebel Systems would eventually become synonymous with customer relationship management software. In 2005, it was bought by for $5.8 billion.


8. Bernie Marcus co-founded Home Depot at 50

The impetus to start a business comes in many forms. For Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot, it was an abrupt firing that sparked the fire. 

In April 1978, Marcus and his future co-founder, Arthur Blank, were let go from their executive roles during a corporate power struggle at Handy Dan Home Improvement Centers, a now-defunct home improvement chain. 

The two were convinced by friend and business colleague Ken Langone to open their own home improvement store. Langone arranged the financing and the rest is history. The first two Home Depot stores opened in Atlanta in 1979. 

Today, Home Depot has nearly 2,300 locations and boasts annual sales of more than $80 billion.


9. Bill Porter started E*Trade at 54

An early player in the online investment industry, Bill Porter used $15,000 to launch an electronic system for stockbrokers called TradePlus in 1982.

In 1991, that company became E*Trade, the $7 billion online trading giant for do-it-yourself investors. 

While he is best known for that company, Porter had a long legacy of inventing, holding 14 patents and developing more than 20 products including a type of broadcast television camera. 

After founding E*Trade he went on to launch the International Securities Exchange (ISE).

 

10. Robert Noyce co-founded Intel at 41

After earning his doctorate in physics from MIT, Robert Noyce found work as a research engineer, eventually ending up at Beckman Instruments. 

In 1957, he and seven others left Beckman and founded the Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation. While he enjoyed some success there, he eventually left with Gordon Moore. Together, they founded Intel when Noyce was 41.

Noyce was considered the visionary of the company and treated staff like family. He declined the lavish benefits that most CEOs received and kept the company less structured and more relaxed. 

While at Intel, he oversaw the invention of the microprocessor, an innovation that revolutionized computer technology and forms the foundation of the machines we still use today.

11. Ray Kroc spent his career as a 

milkshake-device salesman before 

buying McDonald's at age 52 in 1954. 

He grew it into the world's biggest 

fast-food franchise.


12. Anna Mary Robertson Moses, 

better known as Grandma Moses

began her prolific painting career at 78.

In 2006, one of her paintings sold for  

$1.2 million. Previously, she was a 

housekeeper and farm laborer.


13. Harland Sanders, better known as

Colonel Sanders, was 62 when he 

franchised Kentucky Fried Chicken in 

1952, which he sold for $2 million 12 

ears later. Before serving up his 

renowned original recipe, Sanders held 

several odd jobs including country 

lawyer, gas station operator and 

railroad worker.


Colonel. Sanders did not start out as anyone’s idea of a successful businessman. He lost his father at an early age, quarreled extensively with his stepfather and was fired from multiple jobs, even losing his job as a lawyer after a courtroom brawl with his own client. However, he was determined to never give up and this trait led to his eventual success.
 
While working at a service station in Corbin, Ky., Sanders gained local popularity for his delicious chicken recipe. 

After the Corbin station was destroyed by a fire, Sanders had the location rebuilt as a motel and 140-seat restaurant. 

In 1952, at the age of 62, Sanders franchised his “Kentucky Fried Chicken” for the first time. 

Today, KFC has over 18,800 outlets in 118 different countries and territories.


14. GEICO, or the Government Employee’s Insurance Company, is now a well-known car insurance brand with well-known advertising figures. But before the Gecko, the Caveman or Maxwell, GEICO was the idea of Leo Goodwin

Working as an accountant in San Antonio, Texas, in the 1930’s, Leo Goodwin realized that insurance needed an overhaul. Why weren’t companies just dealing with customers directly, saving all the money that traditionally went to brokers? (He looked for a problem and sought how to solve it. This is what entrepreneurs do).

In 1936, at the age of 50, Leo founded GEICO in Washington, D.C. In a departure from most businessmen of the day, he worked closely with his wife Lillian in running the company. 

By the end of the year, GEICO had 12 people on staff and 3,700 policies in force. Today, GEICO employs over 27,000 people and has over 14 million policyholders.


15. Surely a company like LinkedIn, a major social network, was founded by a youngster, like Mark Zuzu, right? Not at all! Reid Hoffman struggled with what to do after he graduated from Stanford. 

He decided to work, but to do so strategically, mapping out a plan of what he would need to learn before he started his own company.
 
When he first started on his own, he founded a networking site called Socialnet, believing that having a great matching algorithm would guarantee success. He tried advertising his new site through magazines and newspapers but never found traction with the idea.

In the end, he left and joined PayPal before leaving his position with the company in 2002 to co-found LinkedIn. Hoffman was 35 when he founded the company and 43 when it went public.


16. If the thought of tomato-flavored ice cream turns your stomach, you’re not alone. 

Wally Blume had a successful 20-year career but knew he had to move on when his boss decided to move forward with that crazy idea. 

In 1995, in his mid-50s, he started his own ice cream company, Denali Flavors, where he created the famous Moose Tracks flavor.
 
Today, this dairy treat brings in $80 million a year alone through licensing agreements. Denali now has over 40 flavors and Blume is still going strong at the age of 70.


17. When you’re 52, newly divorced, broke and depressed, you’d think that the last thing on your mind would be starting a company. Then again, it might be just what the doctor ordered.
 
After getting a dog at her therapist’s recommendation, Carol Gardner won a local Christmas card contest with a picture of the dog and a funny quip. The win inspired Gardner to start a greeting card company, which she named after her dog, Zelda. 

In 2010, Zelda Wisdom was valued at roughly $50 million, showing that you truly never know where your next great idea might come from.


18. Henry Ford started Ford at the age of 40.
 
Despite his family’s expectation that he would take over the family farm, Ford left home at 16 to get a job as a machinist in Detroit. 

This led him to becoming the godfather of the modern era.

19. Born into a poor family, he moved to Bangkok and began his own company, TC Pharmaceuticals. 

Upon meeting Austrian entrepreneur Dietrich Mateschictz, they decided to market  Yoovidhya’s tonic drink internationally.

Chaleo Yoovidhya  was 61 when he started his tonic business.
 
20. Gorden Bowker founded Starbucks at the age of 51.


All these entrepreneurs show that age is no barrier. In fact, age and the experience that comes with it is a major part of their accomplishment.

So, relax and take a chill pill. For as long as there is life, there is surely hope.

Have faith.

RUTH BIRCHAM SLAMS LONDON POLICE FOR COMPROMISING

Ruth Bircham and Olufemi Ali

The case of a Jamaican born British erotic artist, Ruth Bircham, who was raped by a Nigerian, Mr. Olufemi Ali, in London has taken a new dimension as the London Metropolitan Police discharges the offender without charging him to court, even after the culprit had in the process of investigation openly admitted to the police that he committed the offence. 


During a chat with Bulkybon Periscopes, the rape victim said that the police said that they did not charge the rapist to court, because after the crime was committed, she had sent a whatsapp message to ask the rapist why he did what he did to her.

According to Bircham, 
The Councillor asked me why I contacted the rapist after he had committed the crime.  I told her that the rapist was my social media friend before he raped me. I was terribly shaken by his evil action and wanted to know why he did what he did to me.  

“It is shocking to be raped by someone you least expected to harm you, that was why I called to ask why he took advantage of my ill health to rape me. Rape does not come with a manual to say this is what they will do and what they will not do to you. When the culprits come to you in any form as friends or complete strangers. And the Councilor agreed with my reasoning.

However, Bircham wonders why the UK police victimize victims of rape by treating them like criminals while treating rapists as saints. 
She says she does not need to prove that she is a victim of rape if the police had done their job well from the onset after she reported the case. Instead, she has been victimized by the police, either because she is not a white woman or the rapist had bought them over. 

Reiterating how her case has been badly treated by the police, she offers that, 
I am not a solicitor. I am an artist who has been raped and treated unfairly by the police and the UK justice system. 
My main focus is my art, family, friends and fans and nothing else.  I don't give a shit about the UK and their lies, perjury, bullshit and racist fucking laws that incriminate or victimize black people that are victims of crimes. 
All I know is that in between what I am doing with my art, I am letting the world know that what the UK police have done to me is wrong for not charging the rapist to court after he has admitted to committing the crime. It shows that the police have compromised. 

This type of rubbish must never be allowed to happen to another victim with a repeat of the police and racist justice system, sweeping it under the carpet.

In a civilized society as the UK claims to be, all rape and sexual assault cases should be tried in the courts of England, in front of a judge and 12 juries. 
It is not the duty of police to discharge a serious crime of rape after it has been reported to them. In truly honest and non-racial climes, all rape victims are usually assigned with a solicitor, a counsellor and a forensic hospital doctor that does not shy away from examining the victim’s cervix to collect evidence to prove the crime. 
Based on the information given by the lively erotic artist, these were not done in her own rape case. 

At no time at all should ordinary inexperienced and biased police personnel be included in investigating any rape case. Special detectives are the persons that ought to handle such criminal cases of rape by collecting evidence from the victim, while a counsellor is assigned to the victim and works alongside solicitors for the victim and forensic doctors. 

From the look of things, Bircham’s rape case was tried and discharged by the suspiciously dubious London Metropolitan police. 
Instead of charging the rapist to court even after he had admitted to committing the crime, according to information shared by the victim, he has been set free! 
All rape cases should be tried in the law courts not at any police station. Victims should be given every support by listening to them and made to feel that they are being protected and not selectively intimidated and victimized based on their racial diversity or skin complexion. 

In this wise, the erotic artist posits that “UK law system should give better treatment and protection to rape victims irrespective of their ancestral background, instead of victimizing them because they are not white.  
A rapist must be treated as a rapist until the court says otherwise.  It is not the duty of police to determine the fate of any criminal.”

Basic common sense was enough to have made the London police know that all dangerous criminals like rapists should be held in prison until the date of their cases with solicitors. These are some of the conditions that the UK legal system should put in place for rapists. 

In Bircham’s very candid view, she emphasizes that “I have been treated as if I am a criminal who had committed a crime for reporting a rapist to the police. 
My mistake was that I reported that I was raped by Olufemi Ali on the 24th June 2017. Apart from hanging on why I called the rapist to ask him his reason for raping me, as one of the dubious reasons for setting him free, the police discharged my case by conspiratorially using an inadmissible un-amended statement without the knowledge of my contact witness who is my friend.  

“My friend (witness) told the police on phone that she felt that she had written something wrong in her statement. The officer, Det LP, told her that she could amend any error in her statement when she comes back from a trip she made outside the UK that period.  
My friend left the UK on the 20th of July 2017. Yet, the discharge letter that sets the rapist free was also written on the 20th of July 2017 and sent out to me by PC CA after I received a call from PC CA. My friend’s right to correct the error she made was denied her.  

“She says that there is something more to the hasty discharge of the case that meets the eye. I also strongly reason along that line; otherwise, why did they discharge and acquit the rapist without waiting for the amendment of the witness’s statement? 
When my friend came back to the UK, she wrote to Det LP asking her why she had used her un-amended statement as one of the reasons to discharge the case. Afterwards, my friend got a phone call from PC AW. He told my friend to withdraw her statement but she insisted that she will not withdraw her statement because she knows her rights. 

“But out of the blues, the PC CA then told my friend that they never quoted any part of her un-amended statement in the discharge letter. But my friend countered the PC CA by pointing out his lies, by telling him that she had seen the discharged letter and has read sections of her un-amended statement quoted in the discharge letter sent out to her friend  (me). 

“By this time I had already drawn the attention of my Councillor, MP, the Mayor of London and the high police commissioner D, to the issue. 
Suddenly, I received a letter from the DPS saying that they had received a letter from me, when I did not write any letter to the DPS or to the IPPC. 

“The dubious letter showed a chart of the PC AW implicating himself in the letter. But I had told this policeman that I would write my own letter to the DPS when I was ready. He criminally went ahead and wrote a letter without my knowledge to the IPPC and implicated himself and DET LP by impersonating me through the fake letter he wrote. 

From the foregoing, Bircham has released the can of worms of the London Metropolitan Police that handled her rape case. This calls the integrity of the London Police to question, as far as her rape case is concerned. 

Pinpointing the criminality of impersonation by the police, Bircham says “PC AW robbed me of my right to write a letter to the IPPC by impersonating me. I suspect he committed that criminal offence with the hope that they won't touch on the facts that he had committed perjury on the discharge letter by using un-amended document to discharge my case.” 
The reason behind the perjury and impersonation could clearly be attributed to the police grand plan of denying the rape victim an opportunity to get her case reviewed as every rape victim has the right for her case to be reviewed.  

“The police perjury is further more horrible for depending on an un-amended witness statement and the digital media whereby I had written to Olufemi Ali (whose current name on facebook is Alifem Alifem) asking him why he raped me, including the text message with which I sent him my address before he raped me and also the content of my facebook chat where I had accused him of being bad, are pointers to the conspiracy used by the police to discharge my case by halting it from receiving a hearing at a law court for trial. 
It therefore blocks opportunity to put a dangerous rapist in prison and prevent him from further capitalizing on using the social media to hunt for other unsuspecting victims to rape. I believe some type of corruption took place between the police and the rapist. The police compromised.”

The highly celebrated British erotic artist with large followership on social media also said the police added insult to her injury because, “The PC CA insinuates that my artworks and my profession was the cause for the rape that happened to me as he said ‘men think with their dicks.’ (WTF! So, she should stop her art because of one asswipe that could not keep his filthy dick in control!)

It is very essential that all rape victims should be assigned forensic doctors who examine the cervix for proof of the crime, solicitors to defend their legal and human rights and counsellors to help them overcome the effects of the trauma. 
Unfortunately, none of these aforementioned experts is assigned to victims of rape in the U.K, which hypocritically prides itself as a kingdom of uprightness. Instead, rapists are given free of charge solicitors, while the victims of rape are not given such free legal service by the judicial system in the U.K. 
To make matters worse for victims of rape, it is very difficult or almost impossible for them to get a solicitor to defend their right even when the victims are ready to pay for legal services of solicitors. 
One begins to wonder why many solicitors reject the handling of the cases of rape victims in the U.K. This attitude further frustrates victims of rape, and it seems the entire society is against the victims while rapists are treated as kings of the land, parading freely to rape more females. It is insane!

It is a shame that the UK which promotes itself as a kingdom of morality could support a rapist to go free to keep committing his crime on other unsuspecting females while the victim is blamed for falling prey. 
What hypocrites the UK and its police have proven to be!

Ruth Bircham and Olufemi Ali

Ruth Bircham, my Facebook friend, a multimedia erotic artist based in the United Kingdom, says that she was raped by Olufemi Ali, her Facebook friend. Olufemi's Ali's pictures are as shown above.

Below is her Facebook update:

The accident on 10th June, 2017.
My sister in law and niece saw me fall to the ground on the street from their car. She called the ambulance and kept me conscious until the ambulance arrived. I was kept in hospital by the doctors.

For FIVE DAYS, IN MY HOUSE, I WAS UNABLE TO EAT ANY FOOD, because the DWP messed about with the money that it was giving me..... THE MEDICAL ASSESSORS SLANDER STOPPED THE ESA FROM PAYING MY RENT, And all other bills. I was; a victim of Lies.
I wrote to my local MP Steve Reed and he wrote to the DWP. The DWP said that the medical assessment is invalid assessment and will do a reassessment on me. They Called me for reassessment this year, last month. 
On the 5th June 2017 whereby they had to do a second reassessment, because I was rushed to hospital on the first reassessment due to chronic constipation from the pain killers that I take for the pains in my body. The arthritis, sciatica lumbar, carpal tunnel, spinal stenosis, intestinal malrotation deformity. 
On the 5th June at the assessment, they had the AIR CONDITIONING ON & CONSTANT COLD AIR BLEW on my legs in the waiting room for an hour. This worsened my arthritis in my whole legs. I tried getting up and moving around to loosen the stiffness in my both legs, but the sciatica kicked in and I had to sit down under the air conditioning. 
When I next got up, MY Legs Gave WAY from Beneath Me LOADS of times and I couldn't walk. When I was called, every time I placed my foot down 👇 they took turns giving way from under me.
SO ON THE 6TH 7, 8, 9 & 10TH JUNE I HAD NOT EATEN ANY FOOD AT ALL. ON the 10TH OF JUNE, I FORCED MY LEGS TO WALK because none of my family would help me for food shopping 🏬 so I was extremely hungry and had to go shopping. 
I had to leave one Crutches at home to bring the shopping trolley. It was very hot that day and this is why I fell to the ground on my way back home. 
I was taken home by ambulance to the hospital and back home again by ambulance service, a doctor X- rayed me and said that my both legs are severely sprained and because of the staples in my right leg, that it will take a month before I can weight bare on my leg. 
On the 24th JUNE I WAS RAPED BY a FIVE years FRIENDSHIP Of a FACEBOOK FRIEND FROM NIGERIA. I Do not blame every Nigerian man for this Nigerian RAPIST. This is what happened to me. And I feel so bloody numb. I can't believe it. 
If this isn't rape, then what is called rape?And he asked me what was up with my legs.  
As I walked with the crutches into the dining room, he said to me that he was worried about the issues of my legs and what treatment that I was getting. I started to explain, I sat on the mattress that was my makeshift bed which was unsteady, I offered him the computer chair to sit on, but instead he tried to sit on my mattress and fell off it. 
I offered him the chair again and he said he was fine on the mattress. I moved away from him, so that there was a huge space between us. While I was explaining the treatment to him, he leaned towards me and grabbed my breasts, I brushed his hand away and told him not to touch me. 
"No don't touch me!'' I said and I tried to get up of the mattress to reach for my crutches, he said that he wouldn't touch me again, so I told him that the next time he touched me he must leave my house. 
I continued to explain the condition of my legs and he reached over again and touched my breasts again, pushing his hand down into my top. I told him to stop and to get out of my house. He stood up and I thought he was going to leave, then he pulled down his trousers swiftly. 
I was shocked but I reached for my crutches to pull me up. He moved my crutches away from me and pulled down my leggings and panties at the same time then he threw his whole body weight on to my bruised body that was injured from the fall. 
He wedged his fat chunky body between my legs and he pulled down his shorts, I was telling him to get of me, to stop. 
"Get off me!!!'' I shouted. 
''What are you doing?'' I asked him. 
''Get of me!'' 
I pushed at him with both my arthritis fingers and carpal tunnel hands and arms to get of me but my hands hurt. When I moved them to push him off me, I continued pushing at him. I said, 
''No! no! no! Get off me!!! 
He leaned forward with his full chunky body weight onto my bruised chest and ribs and entered me. I couldn't feel anything and he was moving against me and saying, 
''I told you. I will fuck you! I can do it in your ass.''
I said, ''Get off me! No get off!'' 
I couldn't move my sprained legs as they hurt so much every time I moved them. I attempted but they wouldn't move. I pushed at him with my numb osteoarthritis fingers and hands but he never stopped. I felt numb and I must have blacked out because he was off me and there was a horrible strong smell and wetness between my legs and I felt rising vomit in my mouth and I couldn't move. 
Then I heard him far away asking me where the bathroom was. My ears felt numb and my eyes were blurring and I said, 
''What?!'' 
I couldn't get up I tried to get up and I couldn't get up. Then he was upstairs then I heard him come back down and I got my crutches and quickly moved as I thought he was going to rape me again. 
Then he went back upstairs. My legs were giving away and I crawled upstairs because the smell was so strong and I wanted to vomit. I couldn't use the portable toilet because I took the removable section upstairs that morning. 
So I crawled up the stairs on my hands and feet to the bathroom and pushed against the door to go in and he was there and he said something but it sounded distant. And I don't know how I got back down the stairs and I don't know what happened only that he was sitting on my mattress playing with his phone then he looked up at me. I was leaning on the door frame holding my two crutches looking at him. 
He said smiling, ''Lovely love making.'' 
I stared at him and said, 
''That wasn't love making. You raped me get out of my house! 
He continued to play with his phone. I stood there waiting for him to leave. Then I don't remember again. 
Then we are both at the front door and he is taking pictures of me. I can't remember what happened after the photograph taking. 
I felt afraid to sit down. Then my legs gave away from beneath me and I dragged myself to sit in the front room and he came back into my house into the sitting room. I was afraid. 
This is what happened to me on the 24th June 2017. I was raped and the law said that he is free.... 
I have to be strong and be the strongest person ever because I am not only doing this for me. I'm doing it for every single raped victim in the world and especially in the UK this is pure sickness!
Oh! My God! This is what happened to an helpless woman. The bastard, Olufemi Ali, his name on Facebook is Femoral Aloral (Femi Ali), is walking about like a free man because the London Police thinks that Miss Bircham led to the act.

I used to think that it was only the Nigerian Police that was daft. The London Police too haf join.

Who is a lawyer based in the United Kingdom? How can you help this woman?

You have all seen the face of the bastard. Avoid him. If he is your family member, the curse will be on you if you do not fish him out for justice.

There is no reason for a woman to be raped. She is an erotic artist does not give any idiot the right to violate her human right. 

Justice must prevail.

NO! Is NO!



MY LESBIAN FRIEND


After my Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in accounting at Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, I got a job at Equitorial Trust Bank where I did my Industrial Attachment (IT).

My colleagues and boss would advise me not to go back for my Higher National Diploma (HND) but go to a university. I was told that HND holders had lower prospects of getting promotions and that there was a very high segregation between HND graduates and university degree graduates.

I tried to get into Obafemi Awolowo University and Ogun state university but I was not successful. After a while, I got tired of working at the bank and decided to stay at home to prepare for another JAMB or get a direct entry into a university.

It was the era of satellite campuses. I saw the advert for a diploma in accounting at Abubarkar Tafa Balewa University, Bauchi. I went to the school at Fadeyi to make enquiries. I was told that having the school's diploma would make it faster to get into it's university than if I used my OND at Yaba Tech.

So, I discussed with my parents and they gave their permission and money and I began the registration process at the ATBU outreach.

It was at this school that I met her. She was very fair in complexion. Her name was Julie. We became friends on my first day at the school. She was the one that came to meet me and we began to gist. We became close and after school, we would leave together and take the same bus. I would be the first to get down before her because I was also attending my ICAN school (Instititute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria) at WYSE which was in the same area.

Julie liked to talk about her boyfriends and sugar daddies. She would sponsor my lunch during break time.

One day, I was sitting alone in another class studying for a test. I was the only one in that class. She came to meet me.
She said,
"Kemi what are you doing?"
I said, "You can see that I am studying."
She said, "You are studying abi."
And as she was saying that, she was grabbing my breasts and smooching them.
Then she made some mourning sound and planted a kiss on my lips.
I said, "Julie, are you alright?"
She said, "Continue reading. We will talk later."

After class, I did not call her. I just left the school and went home. At this time, my mind did not go to anything like lesbianism. I just thought that she was fooling around and I was disgusted.

I had heard about lesbians when I was in secondary school. A friend of mine who had elder sisters in a girls' only school had gisted me about how girls would have sex partners and they will be calling themselves, my 'ichu' and that they would use wrapper to cover themselves whilst they fondled themselves in bed.

As exams approached, Julie asked me to come and stay with her in the girls' hostel that was near the school. She had moved into the hostel a month before because she complained that her aunt whom she stayed with had started giving her wahala because of her numerous boyfriends and sugar daddies.

She said she was having problems in accounting and that it would be nice if I came to stay with her so that we could study together. I told her that I would ask my parents if they would allow me to stay with her so that I will be able to get to school faster because of the exams.

I never bothered to ask my parents because I knew that there was no need to stay in any hostel. I could cope with coming to school from home everyday. Besides, my parents are very strict. They would want to know whom I was going to stay with and ask so many questions that I would be tired.

The next day, I told her that my parents said that there was no need to move in with her and that I could come from home.
I said,
"Besides, won't your room mate mind an extra person?"

She said, "I live in my room alone. You have refused to come and visit me. How will you know? Every time you will be be going for ICAN lectures. You don't even have time for me again.
Hanhan, Kemi why are you behaving like this? I have already made preparations for us. If you come and stay with me, I will take care of your feeding and you don't have to pay any money for the space. I have already paid for a year."

"Don't do me like this now" and as she made that last statement, she came towards me and started to smooch my breasts again and her right hand went down to my crouch.

I pushed her away. It felt weird.

When the exams started, she would come and sit next to me so that she could copy me. It was distracting. I could not get the incident out of my mind.

I raised up my hand and the invigilator asked me what I wanted. I told him that I wanted to leave my position and sit somewhere else.

After the exams, we did not speak to each other till our diploma session was over. I don't know whether she eventually went to ATBU. Well, I did not. Eventually, I got an admission into Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun state.

Probably, Julie thought that I was the male version of the lesbian because back then, I always wore a pair of jeans of different colours, shorts, shirts, boots, morcasin and behaved like a boy.

Why would I be attracted to a girl without an original 'poron', baritone voice and six packs?!
If I had gone to her room, wetin for don happen?

Lesbians, free me! Abeg!
