    Solid stuff. Well executed, educational and informative yet doesn’t send you to sleep. The characters are well rounded and their experiences mirror the everyday Nigerian gay man. Very relatable. Well done!

    These very foreign names though… Declan, Bryson… hmmm…

      Thanks.

      But erm, you really haven’t heard Nigerians answer those names? Seriously?

    No I haven’t. Perhaps I grew up on the wrong side of town, where people had really local names and would have marvelled and secretly envied names like Declan and Bryson and Deshawn…

      A. There’s no need to get sarcastic.
      B. I have never used a ridiculous name like Deshawn on this series. Try not to project your insecurities here.
      C. Declan and Bryson are English names I’ve heard plenty Nigerians use. It’s not my fault if you think them too foreign for your taste.
      And D. i’m not writing a Nigerian story. I’m writing a story about gays. So try not to wig out on another episode when you happen on . . . I don’t know, Edward. That’s if that wrong side of town you grew up marvels at that one too.

        Hey! You should try not to get overtly defensive about how I or anyone else perceives your work. The better half of my post lauded your work but certain people (like me) will give the most ridiculous critic on the most mundane or irrelevant point. I have a right to that opinion and to express it especially if the work is displayed for public viewing.
        You are a great writer. So when you come off as defensive and use all the letters of the alphabet to validate something that was as irrelevant as a fly that buzzed by, it just may come off as insecure.
        And insecurity isn’t a bad thing. Some of the greatest minds around are often perceived as insecure. So if I do come off as that you are probably right and you do have a right to call me that amidst on the things.
        P.S. On a lighter note. I have a friend called Deshawn and you owe him an apology for calling his name ridiculous.

        I wasn’t being defensive of my work becos you weren’t criticizing my work. I can take a good critiquing of my writing. In fact, I learn from good critiques. Compliments do nothing for my learning. What I am is peeved by this, insinuating that a work is less Nigerian simply becos there’s a proliferation of English names in the story. This same thing came up in the first episode where someone insinuated that Tonia is too English for the story. I mean, seriously.
        So when you do want me to appreciate your critiquing, put your energy where it most matters. On the body of the writing. Not whether the names are Nigerian enough for you.
        PS: You’re the one who owes your friend Deshawn an apology. You lumped his name in with the others that you were disapproving of.

    I may be incorrect, but your character including their name, mannerisms and even the clothing form part of your work. So I don’t think I said anything outside your piece. Perhaps the relevance of what I said is debatable. Regardless, I’m entitled to my opinion, just as long as it isn’t derogatory or negative (and if the part where I chided about the names came off as that I’m sorry. And I never said or insinuated that your choice of names were disapproving. So Deshawn’s apology is still in place. Perhaps we can compromise and write a joint one…)
    I still stand by my points. You should try not to come off as overtly defensive. People are going to say nastier and worse and more irrelevant things. How many will you answer?
    Anyway well done! Keep the good work rolling. I’m still a fan. And look forward to reading about Bry and Dec in the next episode (no pun intended!)

    The protagonist Declan came off a bit superficial and unlikable at the first episode. But by the 2nd and 3rd I find myself getting invested in his life and wanting to know more about his hookups and he’s fun relationship with his friends. I do love the introduction of the new Character Ekene. Reminds me of someone I know. All in all well written and the strongest entry in the series… I’ll be fervently waiting for the next episode!

      Lol. I saw the general consensus from the first episode and not many readers liked him at all. Had to tweak his identity a bit to endear him to y’all. A protagonist is supposed to be likable. Lol.
