A NIQAABI LIKE A GEISHA GIRL By Sanni. Kay Yusuf

  I was a lad but wasn’t too young, so I could recall the event from the start to the tail. Opposite our residence – across the road – was a popular hair-stylist. As if she was the only hairdresser around the area, the patronage she got from women of timber and calibre was indescribable.…
