Van Vicker at Eko hotels, he was invited for the AKWABA market September 2018, NANTA and IATA members will understand.

Patience Ozorkwor was fun to be with when I met her at Asaba, in her words directed to me; "Young thespian, you'll go places.

Tonto Dikeh, the late J.T Tom West, John Obi Mikel, Jim Iyke, Bovi, Ebuka Uchendu and Olu Jacobs.

Then, the GOAT himself, M.I at Erigga's show December last year, dude was so humble and he called me back stage.

Iv had so many encounter with so many celebrities.

starting from when I was still small then. Regina askia came to fix her car at one mechanics shop in Ikoyi near our compound. She brought her daughter who was around 3 yrs old then. I was still very small.

Another was the day Ramsey Noah and pat attah came to a popular Amala spot in ikoyi awolowo road to eat Amala. We small children were cheering them that day.


Another instant was with Kaffy the dancer, funke akindele and Rita dominics when they came to a BSS I was working then in ikoyi to buy stuffs. 2010
Kaffy bought a swarovski wristwatch of 50k, deposited 25k and asked me to keep it. To which she later brought the bal and picked it.

Funke bought makeup and asked me to keep the change (as cashier concern)

Rita Dominic's asked to see the boss. She bought a Brazilian lace wig then of 95k and my boss fixed it for her.

Then I saw burna boy in Ikeja, in a red car. Nobody even noticed cos he wind down the windscreen halfway.

Nothing special.

2013 in Gtbank then VI branch I was an intern, my boss sent me to do a transaction so I entered into the branch suddenly I saw someone on dark shades and jalabia. Everyone was like "this person is a normal person. Nothing special about him",but on getting closer who did I see? Olamide himself.. I just greeted him and shook his hands and called him badoo. He responded before everyone began hailing him.

The second time was in the same bank, I saw someone on camouflage three quarter short who even sag. The moment I walked in I just went close to the person to know who get mind dey sag camouflage three quarter. On getting close,I saw it was Olamide. I just nodded and said okkkk na em nah. This time I didn't hail him cos I was used to seeing him. Going to his shows as well.

Interesting topic.
Sunny Ade
Well, my aunt ran an event company like 10 years back. She needed close to 100 hostesses for the event. She was given a 24 hour notice to select the girls and sew our outfits. It was really crazy. So she had to call every girl she knew so as to meet up. On a good day she will pick ladies slim and tall 6 feet up. She didn't have a choice. So she picked all of us down to the venue after wearing our outfits. The events sponsors complained and complained and she just packed all of us who where not up to 6 feet at the back of the marquee tent. We were angry at first but we realized we were stationed at the foreigners section with the Sunny Ade band staged there. We enjoyed every bit of the experience.

Helen Paul
Chai. Chai. She can talk for Africa. We were in the same hostel in New hall, Unilag. You can hear her voice everywhere. I was addicted to her. She ran anchor for every beauty contest on campus. If she doesn't show up as the anchor. We would leave. She has many voices. Her most serious voice ehn. She is one talented person. She knows how to hold and entertain a crowd without anyone getting bored.

AY
His first show in Unilag. He cracked a joke about us taking anything on him. Point and take he called it. My friend stood up and asked for his designer watch. You need to see him crying but he gave it anyways.

Derenle
So there was this show on campus. He decided to come to my hostel. He told us, as we stood on our way to class that he once had a girlfriend there.
Oops, our Dean caught him there. He gave us stories of his days in our faculty. How he cross dresses to class and how the lecturers thought he was mad.

I have met Terry G, psquare, dr Sid and Dbanj, MI, Mocheda and many of them

For me, meeting them gives me a new perspective to thinking. I try to learn a thing or two. The good, bad and the ugly. I love meeting people and going to new places. All for learning sake. I hate boredom.
I never know how rude Beyonce was until i spoke to two people who have met her in person. So i ask myself why do i want to add rude as part of my names.
So try to learn something people

The year was 2009. I was an extra (waka pass) on the set of 'The Figurine', produced and directed by Kunle Afolayan and starring Ramsey Nouah and Funlola Aofiyebi (she wasn't yet Raimi back then).

We were scheduled to film the party scene where Ramsey's character was gisting with Afolayan's, and filming was to start at midnight. I really don't know why we had to start the shoot so late, but after spending the whole evening loitering around Opebi where the set was, I was VERY hungry and couldn't find any where to buy food. By 10pm the hunger had reached critical proportions. Driven half mad with hunger, i befriended another waka pass actress and together we went prowling the dark, quiet streets of Opebi in search of a mai shayi or road side provisions seller.

Eventually we found a mai shayi and bought bread and fried eggs and satchets of impure pure water (I came down with typhoid after that day. But I digress).

My new friend was dawdling at the mai shayi, and because I was hungry and eager to get back to the set as it was already past 11pm, I left her and begun the long trek back. I had walked only a few metres when I heard footsteps running towards me from behind. My friend, with her high heels was running koi koi koi koi, and when I turned she breathlessly said to me with great excitement "Ishi come come come, Ramsey Nouah say make we enter hin motor make e carry us go set!!!" cheesy

" Issalie!!" shrieked I in pure joy. cheesy cheesy

I held my bread and egg in one hand, used my second hand to grip my bosoms because I was wearing 'omo na bouncing' brassiere and ran pell mell to where a black, shiny Toyota Corolla was parked at the side of the road blasting Wande Coal's 'Na Who Born the Maga'.

I and my companion went to back seat, and oh my days, Kunle Afolayan was seating at the passenger side. They both turned to us and Ramsey smiled. I almost fainted. embarassed

"Good evening sir, good evening sir", I greeted them both in a small voice. Ramsey smiled again and nodded while Kunle simply nodded.

GOSH, my childhood crush was smiling at me. embarassed grin

Ramsey drove us back to the set and when Kunle got down, he reminded I and Waka Pass not to be late and to change into our costumes on time.

My friend left I and Ramsey alone after we all alighted. I offered to see him off to his dressing room and he accepted. We chatted all the way there. The man was so friendly, playful and humble, and he is also incredibly handsome. The pictures you see of him do not adequately capture his beauty, both external and internal.

When we got close to his dressing room he politely told me extras were not allowed in that area and shook my hand before leaving me. He is a complete gentleman.

I was very impressed. I never knew a well known movie star could be so down-to-earth.

Ever since that day, anytime I hear 'Na Who Born the Maga', my mind instantly jumps to that very interesting night in Opebi. I know he won't remember me because I was an extra, but I will never forget that night. NEVER
