On Owambes, Nigerian Tailors, Mechanics, and all things glamourous

Owambe is the perfect time to slay effortlessly, ask the ladies. Nigerian tailors just won’t let us be great; they can sew every style in the world and so confidently too. And in this age whenAso-Ebi material is like wedding fundraiser, all you can do is have your heart in your mouth and trust.

About deadlines, Nigerian tailors wiped it off their dictionary. So you start calling them like a maniac that they’ve made you… Four Missed calls, Fourteen, Forty… (What were you thinking? I would say Four Hundred missed calls? Haba, who are you? customer care?)

Airtime 1

When they finally pick up the phone, the excuse is always sweeter than Super Story; something about,“Our transformer blow, our landlord neighbour’s dog die…” and the excuses get ridiculous.At the heart of all the noise, all you want is your clothes, done or undone.

Let’s just not talk about our African time attitude, but you know everything is against you when you have a flat tyre in the middle of nowhere, you are calling Shege the mechanic and network starts to recite the legendary… ‘You do not have sufficient airtime…’ Everybody hangs up here.

Airtime 2

It’s the middle of nowhere, who does vouchers when it’s quicker on Quickteller.com?Shegefinally pulls through but you know Shege’s ‘I dey come’ will take longer than the six seasons it took Game of Thrones’ ‘Winter is coming’ to finally come.

This video just does it, take a look.
