In-house Balotelli (@FinallyMario) Mania

Excerpt from a conversation earlier today with Mum.

Mum: Heh Madame, you are standing in front of the TV.

Me: Yes Mum, I’m just watering the plants, give me a sec….

Mum: Plants?  But I want to see the TV, watch the football.  Don’t you know that my son Balotelli is playing?

Me: Yes, I know Mum.  It hurts my heart that he went to Liverpool,  Loftus Road (QPR) suits him much better.

Mum: Move child!  I want to see him. I don’t care if he was playing for the Moon.  Who are Liverpool anyway?  Don’t you know he is from Konongo?  Asante-Akyim, just like me.  He has got pure Ashanti spirit running through him, that is why they are all scared.  He will kick people and they’ll all fall down like leaves.  His fufu-power has been replaced by pasta-power but it is all the same.

Me: Ha! Mum you make me laugh.  You’re obsessed with Balo/Jamo (she previously thought that his name was Jamotello).  I need to go back to Gh quick smart!

Mum: Hmm, so you didn’t see that I even went upstairs to get my best glasses so that I can see him properly?  He is my Ashanti son, I have to support him.

Disclaimer: I do not support Liverpool FC.  Pictures used for illustration purposes only.

Erykah Badu's Disney Frustration

Lol, Ms. Badu’s little girl Puma has obviously been subjecting her Mum to repeated renditions of the hit song “Let It Go” from Disney’s “Frozen”. Oh dear!

How Nigeria turned Her Majesty's prison into a place of pleasure

Time to learn a little more about the dismal history but ultimate triumph of Freedom Park, Lagos.

Who’s your daddy?
August 14, 2014 — One Christian Nigerian Brother exalts the “rightness” of his culture’s patrilineal custom, then denounces the matrilineal traditions of neighbouring Ghana. Is this just about “bragging rights” — I’M the daddy?

Manners

Small point: Politeness and good manners unfortunately seem to be on the decline in some circles. “Hello”, “Good morning”, “Please”, and “Thank you” (amongst other terms) can go a long way in breaking the ice and essentially reaching your goal.

Please do not expect me to respond favourably if you are unable to use these pleasantries in personal or business settings.

Thank you.
