STORY: Even Your Boo Get A Boo (Part 5)
can’t dance. Or maybe because I hate the whole
social kiniko kiniko that go with it. But the way
Clara asked me to come for that party mehn…it
wasn’t a small thing. I just had to say yes then
after I said yes I regretted I hadn’t said no.
But I haf say the yes already na. It would be fack
up to come and start changing mouth again. So
that’s how I agreed to go party o.
That day, as in the party day; I cleaned up then
pinged Clara and asked her to send me directions
then she did and then come and say one mumu
thing about the party being an all white thing.
Are you kidding me. Is it NYSC.
When It got time to ball out, I looked at my
wardrobe . There was only one white in there (I
hate white. Minus joke) and the one in the
wardrobe was a trad plus it was dirty. I can’t wear
dirty white trad na to this kind of party na
What kind of mumu all white party sef. I went
and took my bath, dressed up with what was in
the wardrobe and just balled out.
I followed the direction to the place the party
was supposed to hold. Actually the place na
Liberty estate. If you live in Enugu then you will
know the place for real mehn.
So piam piam. I followed direction and got to the
house. Mehn, that house wasn’t here o. Fine fine
anyhow like this eh.
I knocked on the gate and waited. That was when
I first chop my first Sh*t. Well, not like Sh*t for
real. As in, what happened was I knocked and
gateman looked at me like I messed beans mess.
The malam face no nice at all.
“Who you dey fine?” he almost barked.
How will I answer now.
“I come for the party”. I finally managed to say
after my head been blank.
“Comot here. Oga pikin say na white”. Vam and
he banged gate on my face.
I smile. Like all those smile you smile when you
feel somebody have just insulted you but you
don’t know what to do. So you just laugh yourself
and say “chai, I don suffer for people hand”. That
I picked my phone and called Clara.
“Gateman doesn’t want me to enter o”.
Dude, my mind voice said when I said that, you
just sounded like small pikin now she you know?.
Eh wahever, I agreed, live it like that.
“Why na?” Clara asked.
“He said I’m not putting on you people’s
She laughed. Then said something about me
always liking to break rules and told me to wait.
Ten minutes later and she showed. Damn, that
girl is fine. No worry.
She wore white but white haven’t looked so sinful
as it did on that babe, I thought a lot of things
when I saw her that I no go like talk about here –
Bumshort. Horribly short bumshort like this eh…
Choi. Then she come wear this top that just
showed her booby like Ish the booby’s birthday.
Forget my guy, let’s not go there.
She said something to the Gateman and the fool
come gree to allow me enter. I got in and gave
him my best evil eye and passed.
Clara then lead me up a walkway to the front
door and Opened it. we got in. That was when I
started wishing say I get sense just go fin white
borrow. Everybody just wear white, na me just
off. And no chair dey the place. Seems they
removed it. Everyone was standing. Cocktail
A fine very tall guy walked up to us. I’m not fine, I
know. But that guy’s fresh fine-ness just made
me look twice as ugly as I dey mehn. No shiii. I
looked and recognized him from Clara’s dp. That
guy I been see for her dp na. Shey you
“OLUFAYO”. Clara said. “Meet my boyfriend. Jay,
That was when I wished I hadn’t come. And in one
simple sentence she just turned my belle. But
there was more…
