Dick Whipped: A True Kwam Story

For Kelvin Agyapong, Thank you. The whole drive to his place, she had rehearsed what she was going to say. Over and over again. Every pause, every gesticulation, anticipated every response – except this one. He sunk deeper into the couch, his eyes completely focused on the T.V. screen. Occasionally he would stick out a … Continue reading Dick Whipped: A True Kwam Story

Sonyo Sanyo

He lay flat out on his bed, a hand behind his head, the other inside his boxers, gently cupping at his testicles. His fan spelt “SONYO” instead of “SANYO”. It was a faux brand, an imitation. He thought of all of the times he had slept directly underneath it, even now; how easily it could … Continue reading Sonyo Sanyo

Long Night’s Journey into Day: As Written and Directed by Hikuto Sensei.

FAN FICTION: THE REVENGE ON KANTANKA (ALIAS, THE KANKURANG OF VIOLENCE)

Prologue There’s drumming and dancing as the Kankurang makes his way through the town. He holds a cutlass in each hand, occasionally drawing them against each other and then across the floor. His body is a consistent vibration, the hairs on his costume bob with every step. The drum beats increase in tempo and he … Continue reading FAN FICTION: THE REVENGE ON KANTANKA (ALIAS, THE KANKURANG OF VIOLENCE)

Djon – The Intriguing Romance of Akua from Reception.

Sedem squirmed in his seat the umpteenth time that afternoon, trying to take his focus off the unpleasant thoughts that stirred inside his head and focus on the traffic ahead instead.
