Derulo please mind yourself!!!
kitchen preparing to serve dinner a long time ago when the unthinkable almost
(before you go down low), just know that I loooove music!! Coming from a
“bathroom singing record breaking” artist, you shouldn’t be
surprised! I have a lot of songs in my phone and anytime I work, I just play
and sing along, and dance as I step into the mood.
music player, you find a rare combination of songs. Gospel, hip pop, blues,
Country music, (I can literally fall in love with you if you love country
music), rap, just name it!!! . I may love the cool beats, the bridge or the
the first song on the list is “it’s been a long time without you my
friend” ( I guess you must have heard it in Fast and Furious), the second
song is by Chris Morgan “often as I breathe” (see the rare
combination I talked about right? *deep sigh*
myself all alone in the kitchen, freestyling as I waltzed to the songs….without
warning, my mom entered the kitchen and the next song by Snoop Dog and Jason
Derulo was just starting.
majority of our parents in Nigeria are really traditional and are not fans of
our modern day music.., and I love that because it really helped us growing up.
Heyo Jason, say somethng to her
Derulo: I got one question, how do you fit all that..
in them jeans?
I am dead!
mom had gotten close to my phone now and I was mega confused!!
Derulo: you know what to do with that big *wiggle*
(faints) stands up, starts scattering plates, just to create as much noise as
possible, because if I touch my phone, she would get suspicious.
mummy!! The pot is on my phone! meanwhille nothing was near my phone
shake what ya mama gave u……….
I start screaming my sisters’ name….to come and do nothing exactly!!
Derulo: come now baby…turn around
around turn around hey!)
the star girl, take a bow
a bow, take a bow chei)
just one thing that’s killing me
do you fit that…in them jeans??
strangely enough, Jason’s Derulo’s bridge is my best part of the song and here
I am, not singing loudly like I would do normally, but sweating furiously.
Derulo: you know what to do with *wiggle* *wiggle*
starts washing plates noisily, setting table, frying, all at once. I couldn’t
just wait for one of my best songs to just stop playing…
getting busted, no amount of noise will lower the volume of the music, the
lyrics go clear that moment like die!!
and snoop dog, the thunder waiting for you both is still in the gym!!
looking at me strangely all through the evening…and I just plastered a
permanent frown on my face too….ah ah..!!
story is that…its not every story that has a moral lesson…*tongue out
Always be yourself. Be true to
yourself, be known for something. If you are a good geh like me, fine!!!!!
Don’t be a pretender, nor carry out
lip/eye service because it never pays.
Define yourself for yourself. So you
are not caught up in the definition of others for you.
