February 12, 2012, 6am! Me and a group of comedians where at the international airport hoping to catch our rescheduled flight to London for a show. That was where the news of Whitney Houston’s death was broken to us. She had died a day earlier and we were all shook. I began to reminisce on my favorite Whitney track, One Moment In Time. While we discussed her rise to fame and her favorite songs, a huge man walked up to us with an elderly lady. He was approximately 6’4” tall, burly and boisterous. He narrowed down on me and praised me to high heavens on how I was his favorite comedian. I felt a little uneasy because the man was really loud. And those who know me know I can be very coy in such situations. Thankfully he rounded off but not before drawing the attention of the few airport patrons that were milling around . We all left for a bookstore to feed our eyes but we had barely settled when this same man came in again and confronted me again. This time he was mellow. And his words were lucid. Taking off his sunglasses he said “this is an impostor Rayban glasses but I’m giving it to you with a genuine heart because I love what you do and you make me happy. I have nothing else to give you so please accept it”. I thanked him and took it. It’s 6 years today and I still haven’t worn it but I value it more than anything I’ve ever worn. I know this because one year later my domestic staff stole it along with other personal effects. When they were recovered, the police could not wrap their head around why the glasses annoyed me the most out of all the other more valuable things found in his possession. I’ve never seen that man again, but i hope wherever he is, he knows he taught me a valuable lesson in giving with love and appreciating those who’ve touched our lives. It was my one moment in time.
When I just got into Uni, in the heart of delta state, I saw an advert of @teeacomedian_ in the newspapers. It was the first ever one man stand up comedy special in Nigeria! Twas called Tee-A, live and naked! His picture on it was a silhouette. That’s when I decided that one day I was going to have a one man show. 15 years later, I did. In oother news I bought this suit from @kimonokollection 😂😂😂. #omotola4pointo
Last night @bolanle and me hosted the Visa send-forth party for the Nigerian bobsled and skeleton team to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang! And yes, our outfits were a beautiful coincidence from two different brands. @onpointclothingng
Dear Dorcas, I’m compelled to write you a public letter because I have an overwhelming urge to participate in the public discuss of your recent episode. As a friend, I will feel I failed you by remaining quiet while a section of society bashed you these past few days. But rather than defend you to a group of people who don’t know you personally and who have made up their minds even in the face of overwhelming evidence, allow me to publicly tell you about your experience, what you did right and what you should have done differently. First off, your biggest crime in all of this was not fitting into the stereotype! You’ve been dragged in many sections for being bold and courageous under fire. While the taxi driver was taken you to a wrong destination, just because your voice was firm and assertive, it seemed as though nothing troubling was happening. While the driver restrained you from coming down from the taxi, you pepper sprayed him and your voice and resolve was still not broken. This too doesn’t fit the stereotype. If it was a scene out of a movie, the director would probably ask you to scream, cry, be shaken and even beg to be let go. In the eyes of many, you were too bold, too calm, too calculated for a lady. To this I say a big kudos. Don’t stop. Don’t change. Because the fact remains, as far as he took you to a destination against your will in the middle of the night, you were abducted. That is a crime punishable by law. Somewhere, some girl is inspired by your boldness. Next time though, it will be wiser to get down from the car as quickly as possible. Do not take chances or hesitate. Safety first should be your watch word. Cynthia hesitated in festac. It didn’t end well. If you had a PR expert by your side the next day, just before you posted those videos explaining what actually transpired, he/she would have worn you a very thick cardigan and wrapped you in a blanket. You would have been asked to speak in a “victim tone”. All this
As wise as this saying is, always remember that there’s an exception to the rule. If you’re gonna buy a 10 dollar bag and use 290 for feeding, better buy the bag. It will open doors that a 10 dollar bag cannot open
