Lagimo by Rooftop MCs

Is it me or is anyone feeling this song. Not the beat but the message is so powerful if more people thought less of themselves and worked more to God's glory and less to public opinion....

private jet at 35, mansion by the lake, ladies screaming...etc (that's the lyrics....)

I have been preached too today.

Thank BellaNaija for bring to my attention.

Oya y'all listen and watch the video. I'm officially off youtube.

Nigerian Men (tality) 6

I want to do something in the banking-finance sector but my experience and been endless everyday encounters with dudes with the mentality in question.

Everyone has their hit-on encounters but for someone with my personality, I have to rant and rave. I've had an unhealthy dose of unintelligent folks.

So,  the next story 

I was sent to run errands to numerous banks so I had to walk in and out from one bank to the other. I went into an old-generation bank to perform my task when the errand-takers asked me to write my name, number, signature and all that stuff. I thought it was totally unnecessary to the errand but I did anyway. As soon as I was done and stepped out of the building, my phone started ringing.

I was like "ah ah!" to the unknown number. I could only think of my boss calling. I answered the unknown number only to hear a guy's voice. An older guy definitely... or too old for me.

"Eh, Eh, Eh You just stepped out of my bank now and Eh, Eh"

He was stammering "eh, eh" = nonsense talk in my interpretation

I hung up. Trouble don start be dat.

I was walking into my next stop- another bank so I had to switch off my phone.

When I got back home in the night of course, that number I had now stored as "bank dude" kept calling. What the heck? It was not business by the way I'm confident I didn't screw up my responsibility plus he would be stammering nervous so why was he calling?

I didn't answer. Omo-fronting for a stranger (duh!) I got a text saying "I know good things when I see them. Please pick up."

Lust eh?

Sorry that made it worse for me. I was disgusted by this stranger. For all I knew he could have been ....something-someone-somebody creepy or maybe I was just plain paranoid.

He finally gave up but wait I'm supposed to look 12yrs old right?

I almost picked up to tell him I was the MD's daughter sent on an errand because I was too SPLOIT to handle the real world. 

I went back to the bank for the same errand and put my female boss's number there. Let them call her and say they know good things when they see them.

I'm still complaining because the very next second someone is appalled that I look to young too work in a bank and someone else in taking advantage of my 'naivete' ????

Ubangiji Allah ya taimake mu! (God help us!)

Nigerian Men (tality) 5

I've not updated in forever..students oh!

Sha, Nigerian Men (tality) where did I stop?

The Mallam B where I worked. I was filing as usual when a customer, a man aged 50yrs or more came to my unit transfer money to his son in university up north.

Okay, being the intern and him the big man (can't stand in queues), I went and did the whole transfer thing. When I came back with his tracking number, he started whispering "foot ya number" (the Hausa accent wasn't that bad I'm just exaggerating) I thought he meant the tracking number so I dropped the card that had the number on it. Then he turned the card around to the blank side and stylishly slid it towards me and repeated his request. He was talkinge made sure my boss (northern female) didn't see him or suspect his 'naughtiness.' I ignored him and continued filing.

I opened a drawer beside him to take out some slips and before I knew it his expensive phone had landed in the drawer along side his whispering "put your number."

"Chei!!!" (melodramatic shock)

His son is in University (my age-group) so how will the father be asking for my number unless to do matchmaking. Someone that 'fishy-ish' is not okay upstairs. Which kin matchmaking? You and your son will be competeing?

My Dad is not up to 50 so "Granpa,...I hate this Nigerian Men (tality)."

Wait I'm supposed to look 12 right?

He never came back during my internship there so thank God but I would have gathered more guts to handle the situation.

Two Mallams down, one 'hood boy stalker, one market agboro...our country eh?

More reminiscing to come....and check out the older Men (tality) posts.


What website could I find tickets to Abuja?
