Turn up turn up ladies and gentlemen, it’s Monday!!! And in the voice of The Mask.. Remember him nah?! That green crazy guy we watched while growing up on the Cardbury breakfast television show.... Well in his voice I go… Ssmmmmooooookkkiing.. Somebory stop me! Hehehe Okay I am uber excited to be back at my desk, more cause I miss the thrill of sealing deals on the phone, the shouts on our heads at meetings, and the mails, and the Duru do this and do that lifestyle, ehen and the me writing long mails that people need coffees to read and all, but regardless of my ghen ghen excitement ehn gang, when my alarm made that noise this morning ehn, mmmeeeehn I never hexssppeerrd to be that irritated.. ggrr… the thing get as e do me jo, cause I can’t remember the last time one electronic device woke me up by 3:47AM.. Any way sha, see this life, we will make money shaaa.. and we will buy the bad Ass 4x4 that oga boss T-notes is dreaming about for both of us. GOD dey. So good morning great young minds, how was your weekend? and the Holidays? Nobory better tell me that it was just there ooo, cause I saw all of you turning up on Instagram, Esther koko was being toasted hia and there, and she was cooking for Africa :), Toin was touring between Lagos and the rest of Nigeria and turning up ANYHOW without telling me, Rayo was attending Reunions and snapping pischurss. Etc,. You guys are the real MVP’s jo.
So I heard Lagos was cold, but mehn waking up this morning was a totally different level, I mean when I came out of the house to walk to the buststop ehn, Chisos!! I was feeling like an Icefish… Enugu is cold steady, asin the first morning I had my bath there during the holidays ehn, I practically ran out Naked after pouring the first cup of water on my bory! Chisos, I never hexsperred it oh!! Ahn ahn! It was like bathing with ice water, so lemme confess, on the third day of my stay there I didn’t have my bath. The water was too cold jari, and in my confused eyes, boiling water to bath is wasting of gas, so I just freestyle like that oh jari.. Well until Dr. Duru reported me to Barr. Duru and then started going all “”We need Air freshener in the sitting room” on me. Lmao kai I miss that woman shaaa… But you see this lagos own, its madantin aswear. Well, man no die, man no rotten I guess.
So I got back to Lagos on Saturday, and lemme just say that the trip was far from comfortable! Chisos, I suffereeeedddddd.. I mean Aunty Clara I sufferreeeeedd :(. I came in with a GOD is good flight and the flight was 10 hours long by road.. lmao that reminds me, please lemme give yall a heads up, if you are traveling in this obodo Nigeria by road, DON’T SIT AT THE BACK. I repeat: DO NOT SIT AT THE BACK ROLE. Kai at a time my head was spinning cause every gallop the bus entered affected my brain, and it took the grace of GOD and the voice of the beautiful C.P.C for not to pass out, I mean DIE pass out oh not faint pass out. It was horrible! However while on the bus yeah, I saw this lady who was practically all over a particular guy.. You know that John Legends lof nwantintin song that used to make me think of Wajilda nah? All of me? Well that “I will give aaaaaalllllllllll of me line” was dedicated to her, as that was what the lady was giving to the guy. The whole touching bory ;), affection and love. In my confused eyes, they passed for a couple, as the lady would sleep on his shoulders, clean dust from his face, ask if he was tired, ask if he was hungry, hehehe she was even over caring to the point of asking who he was chatting with on BBM
at that time I was like haba kilode? Him don
marry you ni?, and then in return I saw the cold shoulder the guy gave her,
as he was totally ANTI-lof nwantintin to the babe, and that kinda hurt me. I
mean they spoke Yoruba, so I could decipher from the lady that she wanted to be
loved back and all, but my guy on the other hand was just forming gangster and
using her to catch feels and crews.
You see this kinda inspired this post. Growing up, we never really had much… Until I think JSS 3, when we had something, and then we lost a good part of our lives again later on. But you see in between this phases of having and not having, I saw a lot of things. My Secondary school wasn’t ghen ghen like that ooo, but we had some rich folks who thought and acted like they were too cool to be associated with, and there was always this invisible barrier they created with their actions. I mean there were other cool rich and humble kids oooo, but this particular set were just wrong. Sadly I often saw guys and chicks pretend to be far from what they were just to mingle with them, as they hustled to become up to par and struggled to not be Rejected by them.. The cool kids in my secondary school had cars, PS 2’s, mobiles, and alllll the sexy girls… We on the other hand had none. Soooo many people became all shades of what they weren’t so as to be accepted by these cool kids, and thinking about it now just kinda puts me off. Now we all left high school, and it all ended, and when we talk on IG or Watsapp or something now, I realize that right now nobory really cares about who your dad was or is and all as we did back then, as it is what you are, and who you are worth that holds water now. And then it strikes me that pretending to be who you are not to avoid being rejected is all shades of wrong, as it is all but temporal.
You see many of us especially me! Have fallen for this at one time or the other, you know nah; the struggle to belong, to be accepted, to be ghen ghen on unnecessary levels. We have done it in our relationships, colleges, schools and even offices, but life is teaching me that on the long run yeah, just as it has been after secondary school, nobory cares. Thinking about how that lady gave that guy so much love and was still treated as crap makes me kinda sick to my stomach, but you see I don’t blame him cause no body really accepts those who try too hard to be accepted, nobody really sees value in desperation to be accepted, nobory really loves being given a “take it all” all the time, so going into this ghen ghen year, all I ask is that you be you and do you, that you carry yourself with so much prestige that you would pass for the kings kid, that you stay away from toxic relationships where your value is not appreciated. I Ask that you do not pretend to be who you are not to fulfill the desire of another, cause on the long run and in the nearest future, nobory will care about who you claim to be, but about who you really are.. So be an open book to your friends and colleagues, don't claim to your girlfriend to have N2, 800, 000 starched in FBN where as it isn’t there, don’t claim to be who you are not, cause if they succeed in accepting you so quickly based on lies yeah, be sure that they will reject you quickly when they realize the truth. Clara said something to me over the holidays.. She said “Duru you are a really sweet guy, and we love you cause of that” mehn that destroyed all my FWB plans for 2015, as why should I change to be another cause of another? So this ghen ghen first Monday of 2015…
Wait!! Mehn if you see our coys Diary for 2015 ehhnn, its ghen ghen
like that I implore you, NO! I beg
you to be who you are, cause that way, it is only the relevant people that will
stay in your life. Please don’t try to become what you are not to make someone
stay, cause on the long run yeah, It don’t really matter! Permit me to end this
post with a line I heard a while back, it went something like:
"How do you expect me to love you for who you are when you have become someone else just to be with me?"
Ghen ghen! Question for the gods I guess. **Shines teeth.
