“…nodding my head like yeaaaaahhhh, moving my hips like yeaaahhhhh…”
On Saturday, I found myself in Yaba… not Yaba left. I went to meet with Jesse Oguntimehin (@JesseOguns) and Bankole Oluwafemi (@MrBankole). Jesse was being very kind and was giving me his Samsung Galaxy Nexus to use for two weeks so that I could taste and enjoy the wonders of the Android operating system.
Since Saturday, I have been in awe of the phone but I digress.
I had met Jesse once before at the LTV grounds and it was an exhilarating experience. He was not what I expected at all and I was amazed. Prior to our meeting, I had never eaten amala but he convinced me to try it that day. I won’t say the amala-eating was a mind-blowing experience, after all it’s just amala, but at least I could now say I had tasted amala. If you ask me to choose, it’ll be eba. *now chanting* Eba forever! 🙂
You know how you follow someone on twitter or friend someone on facebook and you get a mental picture of who they are from their posts/tweets or paint a picture of what they look like like from their photos/avatars?
Are you serious?
*shrug* Oh well… I do that oh. I think I am even guilty of putting people in a box. Fashion them according to my own design and expectation and group them into categories. I need to stop doing that, really. I’m the one who doesn’t like being put in a box. So, anyway I had a picture of what Clive (@CliveUA) and Bankole would look like. I didn’t expect them to be so tall neither did I expect to receive such a warm hug from fine boy Clive. 🙂
Clive said I was just as he expected, including the ‘chubby-ness’. Hehehehehehe… I didn’t get to take a photo with him and I missed saying hello to Seyi Taylor (@seyitaylor) by a whisker 😦
But I had fun and it was a jolly good meeting.
I was very impressed with Bankole. Very. He is such a gentleman and quite charming. The glasses just adds to the charm, wait till he starts wearing contacts. His voice is silky and smooth and he almost has a British accent. I am very glad I met him because he has been that online friend who has pushed, prodded and encouraged me on. Thank you, Banky. I cherish your friendship.
