Wetin de happen? I'm currently in an office tucked away somewhere in Victoria Island, Lagos, dreading the moment that I'd have to leave here. The traffic on Ajose Adeogun is not very friendly at this time, or any other time of the day. Anyway I'm glad that my oye is pumping otherwise it would have been an utmost nightmare. First of all the Naija sun dey vex as always, then my already stretched conscience will once again be tested when the little kids come running up to the car, apologising for begging me for money, yet begging all the same.
What do you do in such a situation? E no be say everything de rosy for you, try explaining that to those kids, they see you in a pimped out ride, a/c pumping, gbedu blasting (Ajasa representing) and they think that you have the answer to all their problems.
They don't understand say fine girl doesn't guarantee fuel in your tank or money in your over-sized Nine-West bag at all times. Who can help me explain to them that at a really down and crazy moment a friend and I have actually calculated that if we stand on the road and beg just like the little kids on the street, we'd have enough money to do what we desperately wanted to achieve under 30 minutes.
Well I guess they'd never believe me. Anyhow wetin fine babe like me go do? I have to keep aside some spare change for them everytime I enter town make they no cry me a river.
