I have a friend named Kola and he is from Ekiti State. he has refused to speak with his family members since they pissed him off and I can’t blame him.
When he got to the States, he started dating a white girl called Rose. after dating for seven good years, his family members called him and said he can’t marry a white girl and that he should look for a black one
Reluctantly, he broke up with Rose and then started dating Barbados, a black girl who is from Jamaica. When his family members heard about that one too, they told him that the “Black” they were referring to was an African and not the other black. He broke up with Barbados and started dating Silvia who is a Ghanian.
They (his family) rejected Silvia saying why should he marry a Ghanian lady when there are Nigerians. He told me that he loves Silvia but I advised him to follow his family.
As luck would have its way, he met Ada who is a black Ibo girl but still, his family rejected her asking why he dosen’t want to marry a yoruba girl. “Kola, marry a yoruba girl You know that we all want the best for you! Kola!!! Marry a Yoruba girl” his uncle said.
Then he saw Tosin, a beautiful and educated girl who is from Ijebu. “Sinmi” Kola said “I love this girl die. Na she I go marry. Thanks to my family members who wanted me to marry a Yoruba girl”. I thanked God for him because it means that the wife saga is over. when he took Tosin to her family members, they took him aside and his uncle Bola being the most vocal opened his mouth “Kola, why are you like this? Don’s you know that Ekiti’s and ijebu’s don’t blend! kilo n se e na. You cant marry her ooo.” He continued “In fact, we have seen a girl who is from Ekiti here for you. She is still in Poly but that is the girl we want you to marry”.
Kola tried to protest but I just told him to calm down and let’s see the girl again before he makes his decision.
When he saw Arike, he said “Surely this girl is the real deal”. He told his uncle that he liked the girl…
“Kola” his uncle started… “erm… you can’t marry her o. We just discovered that your grandfather and her grandfather fought over a piece of land which her grandfather won in court. So Kola you can’t…”
His uncle has not even completed his sentence when Kola said “Sinmi, let’s go back to the States today.” “Kola, no problem” was my reply.
Within seconds, Kola brought out his phone making a call to Rose that he was sorry…
