To do taxi driver work for Lagos since before Biafra war no be moi moi. You sef tink am nah.
Na so I siddon for our garage wey dey near Ikeja under bridge after dat big rain wey jus fall finish.
Una kukuma sabi how Lagos road dey be wen rain jus drop small, not to talk of di rain wey fall yanfu yanfu from morning till afternoon yesterday.
All our union member dem for our garage dey wait make rain water dry for road small as all all di road don turn to Lagos lagoon. Everybody for garage dey sleep, only me dey awake.
Na so Aisha bring im market enter our garage. Aisha don prepare orisirisi agbo fill inside like 20 botlle, put all for inside one small plastic basin and carry am for head.
As e carry di agbo for head, Aisha don prepare kpomo, mix am with red pepper, put di kpomo inside one big white plastic, hold am for hand dey waka. So, agbo for head, kpomo for hand.
As Aisha enter garage, e quick quick keep di kpomo, den bring down di agbo basin.
Come see di agbo as e dey bring out smoke for dat cold weather. And anybody wey see di kpomo must swallow saliva. Tori Olorun!
Aisha ask me which agbo I wan buy, I tell am say sebi im know say I no dey drink agbo, my agbo na “My Usual” wey I dey take for Madam Shine buka.
E say since I no wan drink agbo, make I chop kpomo nah. As Aisha jus open di kpomo container, come hear aroma everywia! Olorun Oba o!
