I was in a bus recently, heading to Yaba from Obalende one amazing evening like this, that’s how the babe beside me was a bit irritated. I looked to observe what was going on because in this present day Nigeria, you have to be vigilant all the time and pay attention to your environment (I hope this suffices as an excuse to eliminate me from the amebo records). I noticed a man at the window. When I looked closely, I noticed oga was a uniform man, “chyking” this babe. He was dropping bars o and the babe was saying no with no respect for his uniform.I can’t even remember some of the lines he dropped but it made me remember that song Simi and Falz did together, titled, Soldier.
While I was still recovering from all that rejection on behalf of the military man that should be busy protecting us or rescuing Sambisa babes from the forest or maybe going home to his wife, the babe beside me picked a call and said “She was at home” REALLLLLY????? You now live in the bus and the rest of us are your housemates ni? I mean!!! The way we lie in this country ehn… no mercy whatsoever!!! Haba people how do you want to make heaven with all this religion you people rub on your body like cream.
Earlier that day, I and my friend were eating at a diner and one man that was eating pasta with some chinco people declared he was at Obalende and I am like ahn ahn? Is it not you I am seeing here before my koro koro eye, here in Victoria Island, suddenly your spirit is in Obalende. The person waiting for you could not have decided to eat noodles in his house too or sleep shey? People will just stay and be ying anyhow.
As you may have noticed, it pained me! This our African time mentality ehn… I don’t even know again. With all the religion people form for the fear of hell fire, may you not be late for rapture oh in the name of African time. On a more serious note, lateness is a bad habit o and we need to do our best to curb it.
That aside, You remember that bae the soldier was chyking abi? When she came down from the bus, I understood why the soldier was following her like fly. SHe would give Nicki Minaj and Kim low self esteem with her ENDOWMENT… She was…
Cultivate an early bird habit. Develop a pet peeve for lateness please so you don’t have to lie to cover your tardiness.
If you don’t know how be early, buy my book and learn.
