Jamaica na one kind place wey nobody dey enter anyhow. Jamaica no be ghetto for some people eyes but for my own eyes na confirm ghetto him be. My name na Drogba as my guys and people for area dey call me. Drogba no be the name my palle and malle give me oooh, na just title wey dem guys especially my close padi walex and Jojo take honour me for area. I be tallinus come black join with tattoos of dem girls name wey I don polongo for my body. My name na Drobga and my occupation na to rape and run things, even dem police sef dey shake when dem see my shadow.
My palle don pai but my malle, granmalle, and my little sister, Charity still dey alive. I be get another sister wey her name be Titi, but dem kill am for where we dey live before and na because of her death na him make us change house. I be good boy before and I be graduate too but na the nature of my sister death make me dey as I be now. Make I quick yarn wetin I wan yarn.
The day me and my family enter Jamaica, na that day I turn bad boy. The house wey we rent no dey far from the street where my Granmalle dey stay. Even though I be bad boy, I no dey use my family play at all. E no take me much time before I turn that area upside down. The area wey dey peaceful before come turn to place where young girls no fit waka freely, area wey trouble dey boil every day. Na me cause am, na me be the pioneer and originator of the new face of coal street. Na me organize one big bar for the area wey dem guys and babes dey smoke, drink, and dance. I even extend the business to ashawo joint. Na me name the bar Jamaica and na the name wey dem dey use call coal street be that.
My Malle sef start one pelenge business in front of house, she dey sell Akamu and moi-moi for morning, and akara and bread for night. I make sure sey my sister dey go school and even attend extra lesson sef.
Every morning after I don wake up, before I comot go huzzle, I dey make sure sey I go visit my granmalle, na my custom be that.
As I reach my Granmalle place for one morning like that, before I enter her house, I come dey observe small small girls dem wey don grow kutupe and brurere, because me I no dey tire dey see those kind things, na those things dey give me inspiration sef. Anyway shaa, as I enter Granmalle parlour, naso I see am lie down for chair dey cry, I even think sey Granmalle time don expire, as I come shift small reach her front, naso she hold my shirt come give me one dirty slap, naso I come dey see double oooh, e come be like sey Iyanya dey perform kukere for my head.
" Joshua, what is wrong with you, do you want to kill me and your mother?" for my mind, I think sey Granmalle don start her usual stunt, as she don old naa, until she come strong face for me, na that time I come no sey she dey serious.
"Na wetin Drogba do oooh?" mesef strong face give am.
"Speak English. Joshua I have warned you severally to stop speaking pidgin English when you are with me."
"Haha Granmalle pidgin English no be English too? English na for dem oyinbo, Pidgin English na our own version. Na Pidgin English suppose be our National Language sef." As Granmalle wan give me another slap, na him I come dodge am ooh. Naso she dey do everytime wey I go her place, she no dey make me rest, naso she go dey preach come dey speak one kind grammar wey no dey work.
"Joshua, please I beg you in the name of God, turn a new leaf, you weren't like this before; you were such a sweet boy, what happen to you? Your mother reported you to me that you forced yourself on another girl. Please Joshua go back to the good boy you were before."
"Na the girl gree give me naaa, no be sey I rape am. You know sey I no dey cause trouble, if person find my own trouble I go spoil ground oooh. And point of correction, my name no be Joshua, I be Drogba, Joshua don die tey tey."
"I have said my own, turn a new leaf before it’s too late. You are a graduate, go and get a good job for yourself please." After Granmalle finish her Grammar, as she no gree give me food chop naso I leave am go street go hustle. The thing wey even surprise me be sey people no me wella for the area, na even the chikalas sef dey follow me for back.
As I enter Jamaica, naso I see one fine chikala hang for one corner outside the bar. Me don know sey she be fresh babe for area as I never see am before. As a sharp guy wey no dey carry last, na him I come draw her closer, I be wan kiss am sef because me believe sey any chikala wey stand outside Jamaica bar na ashawo. The babe no gree ooh, she come push me, but I grab am back.
"Who you be?" I ask am.
"Please leave me...help me please." Naso the babe dey scream oooh. She no no who I be for area, and she no no sey nobody go answer am.
"Na wetin be your name...I sey wetin be your name?" I shout for am.
"Joyce, my name is Joyce." Naso the girl dey shake ooh, dey cry like pikin wey never chop.
"E bi like sey you no no me."
"I don't know you please, let me go."
"Make I let you go? Me I no dey carry my eyes comot from fine things ooh. My name na Drogba and my occupation na to rape. I no dey kill person, but I dey give person belle, so make you cooperate."
"Please let me go, I'm only waiting for my boyfriend here, please let me go." As I no like the story wey she dey yarn, naso I grab her hands tight come drag am inside. Dem people wey dey inside dey look us, dem just dey hail me as dem don no wetin I wan do. I come even use the opportunity show am the tattoo of names of chikalas wey I don polongo for my body. The babe just dey shiver come dey beg me sey make I leave am sey na her boyfriend tell am make she wait for am for Jamaica. I be wan pity am before but the babe too fine pass make I leave am. Na so I carry her like bag of garri enter room.
Na only the babe ring tone dem just dey hear for bar, her voice come dey high, dey low like Nepa light. Even when her Bobo rush enter, himself dey feel the voice as e dey draw like ogbono. Me sef I no sey I be bad boy because as the girl fine reach naso my Moringa perform.
"oya oya I don finish wear your cloth joo." Naso I yarn am after I be don go five rounds ontop am. Joyce no come fit waka well oooh, sote I come dey pity am. Naso her Bobo come rush carry am, him come even dey warn me sey I go regret wetin I do him babe.
"How dare you force yourself on my woman, you have done your worst today Drogba, this time around you won't escape the law." Naso the Bobo threaten me oooh.
"Na who tell you sey I rape am...na she gree give me and I collect am." Naso joyce just dey para for me sey I dey lie. She even swear give me and I swear for am back. Her Bobo be tell am sey make dem meet for "Walica", Walica na one new restaurant wey dem open for one street wey dey close to us. Joyce be no hear her Bobo well oooh, she be think sey na Jamaica him talk.
