A Letter To My JSS1 Best Friend



Hey girl,

It so nice to be writing to you. Believe it or not, I find myself thinking about you quite a bit at different times and seasons of my life. I remember how we first met. I had heard that a new girl had just transferred from my former school and I was quite curious as to what you would be like. We connected immediately we met. Girl, that bond was stronger than an electrovalent bond. I think what I loved best about you was your free spiritedness and your ability to make anyone who came around you feel very much at ease.

Letter to Lily


Dear Lily,

My beautiful flower…

I am so excited to be writing to you.

Oh, how I have thought about the moment I will get to hold your tiny feet and behold your innocent green eyes (the green eyes yeah, that’s from your mother).

I remember the day we found out we would be having you: it was on a Sunday evening and I had just gotten back from a European worship tour with Travis, Taya, and the entire Hillsong United team – yeah, we go way back…

Immediately your mom revealed the overwhelming news; “I Am Pregnant”, waves flashed through my brain and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect… Continue reading

Dear Future Husband


Dear Future Husband,

It’s my first time of writing you one of these letters, Kleb put me up to it.

Pardon me for striking out the word “future” as a prefix in your title, that was on purpose, as I believe the future is now.

How are you? Did you see the news lately? My entire side of the state was flooded badly and even though my head was under water, I am doing just fine. I appreciate your prayers, as I know you are out there praying for me as always so I say “thank you”.

To be honest, each day I spend on social media gives me a glimpse of the struggles you are going through as a single man, living in a metropolitan world. I know and absolutely understand how not easy it is, I can assure you I get your pain. Continue reading

August Series: #LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe



I’m organizing a series for the month of August which is slated to run through the 5th of August to the 3rd of September 2017.

The title is #LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe

The big idea: For writers (you) to write based on the life experiences and belief system that has shaped the outcome of their everyday life. It will be based on lessons they have gleaned from life. I believe that in doing this, in sharing our lessons with the world, others can learn from our stories or find inspiration to take stock of their own lessons.

What can you write about?  Anything.

It can be something you are passionate about or something you regret…

It can be good or bad or funny or ugly

Anything at all

Here are some sample topics below:

#LessonLifeHasTaughtMe – Beauty is not vain.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Music is Life

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Marriage is not the ultimate goal in Life.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – God is real.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Technology is the new high.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Garri and Beans is overrated.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – To be stupid is not stupid.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Family is everything.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Suicide is the easy way out.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Failure does not define me.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Integrity is King

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Hard work is relative.


This list is non-exhaustive so you can choose anything you want to write about.

So, Dive in and start sharing what #LessonsLifeHasTaught – You!.

I will deeply appreciate if you could be a part of this.

If yes, please mail me at ekpenyongcaleb@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Deadline for submission is 3rd of August, 2017. After which one article per day will be published for #30 days.

Also kindly attach a short bio which will be used alongside your write-up.

It would mean a lot if you could also help promote this project in whatever way you deem fit.

Thank you in anticipation of your participation

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Warm regards,




Letter To Basketball

Sunset chaser

Dear Basketball,

You came into the life of a young six year old who was confused and lost. I am forever grateful for all the things we’ve been through together. I love you dear basketball.

Not many people understand this love and that’s because they don’t know the experiences you and I have gone through. All thanks to you, I lost a good amount of body fat and I’m gradually building muscle. My balance, coordination, concentration, self-discipline and will to succeed in whatever I put my mind to have been greater than before. I have improved on my endurance to the point where I believe I don’t need to carry around my inhaler 24/7. Continue reading
