Once upon a time…wait; it’s old fashioned. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (sounds better)…. and on the seventh day, God rested. Many many years after that, on a beautiful day, the 24th of February, 1998, around some time in the afternoon, a girl who was later called Okoto Oke Enigma was born. And 15 minutes later, after she had gained so much knowledgeπŸ˜…, her twin sister, Nyce, was born. They were like any normal sibling; one minute they’re singing duets together and the next minute, they want to kill each otherπŸ˜‚


Many years after that, some months after Enigma turned 18, September to be precise, she decided to create her own blog, where she writes basically anything and everything. Now, she’s telling her birth story which sounds like something from a bookπŸ˜…. The end!


I hope you guys enjoyed my storyπŸ˜… and yes, that’s how it happenedπŸ˜‰ Where to start with this birthday stuff. 

I can’t believe I’ve spent 19 years of my life with some girl who shared a space in the womb with me and who shared the food with meπŸ˜… Now I have to do almost everything with her and spend all my birthdays with her until the end of time; and we’re not even identical. I should get paid for this because it’s not easyπŸ˜… On a more serious note, I’m thankful to God for today; and for being able to spend this day, and every other day with my sister whom I haven’t insulted yetπŸ˜……she’s a goat…feels betterπŸ˜‚ She’s a part of me; my other half. Despite how much we quarrel, disagree, and do our own thing, I’m thankful I have a twin, and I can’t imagine my life without her (I’ll probably never say that againπŸ˜…). Here’s to 19 years of our lives well spent, and to 90 more years to comeπŸ˜… Is 90 too much?πŸ˜‚

Happy birthday to the only twins in the family😊


Should I write a post on 19 things I’ve learned and hope to achieve in 19 years? Just like I did with 16 THINGS I’VE LEARNED FROM 2016 and 17 THINGS I HOPE TO ACHIEVE IN 2017. Well, I wrote on 16 things, and 17 things. Jumping to 19 without writing about 18 things shouldn’t be doneπŸ˜… but who cares? πŸ˜‚
