Avu-Koklo !

Some menners we dey dis world so,

Wey dem  dey walk-a walk-a

Like dem be dorng-gorng

Na e be so norhh dem  dey love.

 

Dem people we be free for heart-a

Dema love be pure

Like pre-galamsy Pra River

Huge like Kilimanjaro for Afadjato ein place

 

You no know?

You mon know

Say de way you dey norh,

You figure say everybro dey like you

Ein top people fit shock you,

If dem no do sometin de way…

De very way wey you you go do am.

 

But dos dong-gong lovers no be miaaaow, wae

Dem no be kese, dadivi or avuvi.

Dem dey reason.

You push dem away perh, you no go see dem again.

Sake of man no be avukoklo.

Describing a man like this cannot be an easy task. A man of many parts and sides. A single statement of his sends confusion all over the place: some laugh it off; others weep. Highly unpredictable… consistently inconsistent. Strict but funny. You cannot fully know him because he does not know himself enough either. Settled? When you first meet him, he’s banal; then you get to know him a bit, then you like him. Get to know him some more and you don’t like him much anymore. Write him off…. A mistake. He likes to be undermined at first contact. WARNING! You’re in the territory of a man with uncommon experiences so don’t be unexpectant of the expected unexpected. What do I mean?
