Please listen in on this Conversation.
The Venue is my office, which has a breathtaking view of the Ikoyi Lagoon and Banana Island. The time is Sunset:
This conversation is mostly in Pidgin English. Get an Interpreter if you don’t understand!! Lol
Girlfriend: (looking out at the beautiful view in awe) Kai!! Make God quick give me my rich husband wey go put me inside one of these houses ooo!!
Tari: (irritated) Why?! Because you don’t think you can put yourself in one?
Girlfriend: (facing me) No not that! But Tari, so if you get money now now now, you go go buy house for Banana?!
Tari: Sharply mehn! Waterfront!! I go even move into the uncompleted land, go dey live there like that!!
Girlfriend: (spreading hands open) Then you no wan marry be dat now! You think say man go see say you get house for Banana and go wan marry you?!
Tari: (confused) As in..I don’t get! What does that have to do with anything?
Girlfriend: Tari wake up abeg…you tink say you be oyinbo?! No Nigerian man is going to want to marry you as you de like this, come get house for Banana.
Please I bring this matter to you. Is this true??
Does the young Nigerian woman who appears relatively comfortable, drive away the prospect of her ever getting married to a Good Nigerian Man?!
Can a Nigerian woman have it ALL?!
