My name is ESE, given to me by my dad it means gift in esan. Born and raised in Edo state I am overwhelmed by the red sand in my home. Mmmh, the heart beat of the nation. I asked my dad why the sand was so red and he said “child, the sand is so red because of our ancestors blood shed during the war age”. (Giggle) cheesy right?, I agree. But I know it took him great wisdom to make such interesting tale. Their blood turned the sand red, mmmh, we really must have been ruled by spirits.
