Colours are important features in our daily lives and they mean different things to different people, colours also reflect situations and may serve as an indicator to a person’s mood or state of mind. Many times, we seem to take colours for granted maybe because we see them so often; nevertheless, we need to sometimes appreciate the beauty colours add to life. Substantial credits to The Literary Cafe crew, below are some of the reasons why people love their favourite colour.

Tosin:
“I like green because it represents nature, more like earthy sage green. Sometimes yellow, because it looks happy, I don’t have a favourite but I like earth tones.”

Fifi (Age 3):
“My favourite colour is Pink because that is princess colour.”

Tawakalitu:
“My favourite colour is ‘nude’ and it is my favourite because it’s Kim Kardashian’s signature and it looks so good on her.”

“White, because it represents purity and peace.”

“Yellow, because I admire traffic warden people.”

Muna:
“But for what it’s worth, mine is Red because it reminds me of the Blood of Jesus.”

Esther:
“Black is my favourite colour. People say black is no colour but the absence of all colours and that it connotes negativity or a negative personality. For me and to me, black indicates dignity, respectability, serenity and elegance. It matches any and every colour. You can never go wrong with black. It is sleek, it just shows that independence and power. Black is serious and dynamic, it is just different, it hides a lot of things and it is very simple. Lastly, because of my skin colour, a black attire makes me look attractive.”

Aisha:
“Purple, its a calm colour and not girly like pink.”

Tammy:
“My favourite colour would be black. Basically, everything I own comes in black and I can’t really place a reason. Well, with clothes, it goes with everything. I think the colour is just cool and sleek, especially jet black.”

“My best colour is purple because it reminds me that I am royalty.”

    Well, I promised to put up the real work from TLC. Here it is… Please enjoy it… and add your voice too. Tell us what your best colour is and why…

  7. […] So, today on the TLC whatsapp group – the Literary Cafe – a group of literary minds founded in 2016 in the Nigerian Law School, Bwari Campus, we were given a task. We were to talk about our best colours and why we chose them. We were also to collate the opinions of our friends, family etc. So, I am so tempted to just copy some of the reactions of the members of TLC and paste it. It’s a very attractive idea.  But I don’t think I am supposed to do that. For now. You can find it here […]
