Actress adunni ade was at my POW to get some items and she was so calm and patient while other customers were taking pictures with her. Unlike other actors I don't want to mention that comes and you won't want to go near them.

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 '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
Ishi, what an interesting read

9ice came to perform at a club close to my house in Manchester couple of months ago, we partied and chilled together till early morning. Very relaxed and down to earth guy.
I also met Pogba at Tatton Park Gardens last summer, he was pushing his new born in a buggy with his friend (more like a bodyguard), girlfriend and Matic. He entertained a chat with me, he just wouldn't take no pictures and his privacy was respected.

Met a few footballers actually.

Hmmm.

Most of mine involve professional footballers.

1. Entered a plane where Genevieve was sitting in first class. I was being a bit loud as I boarded so she was looking up to see who was coming. We made eye contact and I recognized her. Wasn't going to speak to her as I wasn't a fan but she quickly looked away and that annoyed me and I have disliked her since.

2. I have shaken hands with Gambia's ex president, Yahya Jammeh, and had a brief chat with him.

3. When I was still an artist I performed at the same event as Alvin Slaughter. Jerry Omole was also there.

4. I was at the gym using one of the leg machines and there was a vaguely familiar guy next to me using a similar one. As he was leaving I observed he was a Gambian national team player. I have crossed paths with a few of them including this way.

5. Current Gambia National team captain was a guest at a wedding where I was best man.

6. Walked past 9ice and pasuma once. Didn't recognize them though.

Do C suite level bank managers count?

Are you a Gambian

Well, they are celebrities but are rarely regarded as one. They're soldiers, the ones who swear an oath of allegiance to Nigeria, yes, some of them are terrible but truth is most of them are amazing! They get stipends to fight for this country, defend this country and ensure that there's a level of safety in this country (they're trying their best). I'm currently serving in a barrack and I must say that my encounters with most of the soldiers here have been nothing short of amazing. They are kind, hardworking, valiant, etc. I've had the privilege of directly teaching a battalion commander who was and still is nothing but Godfearing, strong and kind, he commands the battalion well and ensures everything goes on smoothly. He is always ready for battle and doesn't fear death (most soldiers don't!). Most of the soldiers who act like they're crazy have probably been to Maiduguri and seen hell, it greatly affects them to the point that if care isn't taken, it shatters them! I also have a friend in a colonel ( the current chief of staff of where I am working), he is nothing but strong and also ever ready for battle! Their motto is "no gut, no glory'. They all have gut and are ever conscious. I have met quite a few number of celebrities but none compare to the soldiers I have met (both officers and soldiers--- privates, last corporal, corporal, staff sergeant, master warrant officers, warrant officers, orderlies etc). They have their flaws but majority of them are superb and are trying their best to ensure there's safety in the country! Kudos to the Nigerian Army...


They are no Celebrities, they are just soldiers..okay

You get to see celebrities a lot in Lagos, I don't even bother to say hi cos I'm shy.. I like to keep a straight face in public but I get to see most of them during movie premieres, except I saw Bello Kreb (aka pamera) at a local buka in my area, I was just smiling anyhow.. his character cracks me up anyday grin, he was nice though.

Bello kreb is now a celebrity? cry

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.


Well, I am also Celebrated too.... grin I remember how one beautiful Nairalander saw me at Signatious Hotel at Warri and she was so excited. It was a beautiful experience.

In 2013 during my NYSC in Enugu, me and my friend met Pete edioche at baptist dental clinic inside central baptist church okpara avenue. He is such a gentle and cool man. He begged us not to tell other corpers that he's around. We had a picture with him. It was fun.
