Similarities between Myself & AISL students


American International School Lagos had their annual fun fair this last saturday March 10, 2012. I was there to take pictures as a backup photographer with Elophotos, my elder in the industry. Before now I used to think I was 60per cent pako & 40 percent but-tush. Well I was in for a surprise when I found out I had similarities with kids I considered 100 per cent but-tush. (•͡.̮ •͡ )

Wizkid! Wizkid!! Wizkid!!! Those were shouts from the kids the moment it was announced that the celebrity artiste of the day had arrived. Well I didnt shout like they did; its just that I couldn’t request for an autograph & no pictures for me with the stars (Banky W & Wizkid) as it was my duty to take pictures of the day’s event. 😦

“Sing pakurumo! Sing pakurumo!! They shouted at Wizkid, imagine my surprise to think that children of this calibre could even pronounce d word “pakurumo” not to talk of the fuji dance steps they added to spice up the moment. Well I sang along too but not without my camera, I just couldnt dance like they did. Who says “pakurumo ko joo dada” is razz?? Winks

Running around without shoes: A little while after the fun day took off, there were kids running around barefooted (not just Nigerians, even including “white” kids). Really!!! That was the expression on my face I would never have thought such kids would run around without shoes. Well I did pull-off my jelly sandals as I also got tired of wearing them at a point. Nobody looked at me as if it was weird because if American International School Students could do it, then I could. 🙂

Posing for pictures in the Limo: As part of the fun fair a parent loaned the school a Hummer Limousine for the day. Jeeeeeez!!! Everyone including parents wanted to catch a glimpse. They all took turns posing & taking pictures in the Limo. Well just like Wizkid sang “Dont Dull” guess what I didn’t, I took pictures posing in the Limousine. If they could do it, who says I cant. Abegi snap my picture joor. 🙂

Enough said. I had fun knowing that I had so many things in common with a class of people I though I wasn’t in their class.

    Nice one, you did well, I guess this is another wake up call for me to relaunch my writing skills.

    As per the “ajebos” everybody has a “paki” spirit in them-Something just needs to bring them out.

    Afterall, We are all humans,

    Congrats, once again, You did well!!
