Trying Tyrone: Episode 9 – Wake Up To Ocean

By Adeoluwa Atayero

The health workers downed tools over unpaid salaries

I thought I was humming it in my head but then I heard my voice. It was out of my head. I could feel my vocal chords reaching and saliva from my mouth bouncing.

‘Who is it ma?’, I asked, knowing well it was who I thought it was.
