Dorime: The Food Mix-Up

This is the real life account of a food mix-up saga that unfolded in our office and all the dorime that came with it.

It happened on Monday morning. Mike, rushing to avoid getting to the office late, quickly grabbed the black nylon containing his food and took off without checking what was packaged for him. Can somebody play Dorime track 1?

On arriving at the office, Mike proceeded to the cafeteria and dropped his food, so eager to start the day’s work that he still didn’t check to see what had been packaged in the black nylon. DJ please play Dorime track 2

As the day went by, Francis, the office assistant, went out to buy lunch for some colleagues. Mike later goes for lunch, picks up his food, finally checks it, sees one boiled egg. He thought it strange because he knew there was chicken at home but was just too hungry to care. He started eating and was almost done when…

Shayo, his colleague, walks in and starts looking for his food with Francis the office assistant. Mike didn’t pay too much attention until he heard “there was a boiled egg in the food.” The description of the food was so apt that it became obvious that Mike don chop person food o…

Upon investigation, Mike’s real food was found having chicken, fish and snail as protein. What sort of sorcery is this? Mike wondered!

Luckily for Mike, Shayo didn’t make a big deal out of it as it was the close of his shift. That’s how Iyanu, another colleague who was in the right place at the right time, ate free food!

Obi Cubana’s Rise: Lessons From Mum’s Burial

One of the hottest, most talked-about events in the Nigerian social circles right now has been Obi Cubana’s mum’s burial and nothing seems to be enough to kill Obi Cubana’s shine.

From the over 400 cows donated to the host, the $100,000 diamond pendant, 67 private jets that landed Oba to the fleet of over 500 luxury cars, the ceremony was as loud as loud can be. We followed this story closely and here are five lessons we gathered from it.

1. Nigerians can joke about anything.

Like, I’m not even sure we take even ourselves seriously anymore. This has to be the height. Somebody’s mother died and people were everywhere on social media saying “God when?” Seriously guys???

2. Invest in your social capital.

They said connect with people, you say no, you’re an introvert, you like your personal space, etc. Being rich in people is a thing, your network is your net-worth. If the sheer amount of cows donated and money sprayed/flung doesn’t change your mind, what will?

3. Make your own soap.

As usual, the whole saga had people saying “cut soap for us” and the likes. In an interview with bbc pidgin, Obi Cubana was asked to cut soap for Nigerians and he responded “dem no dey cut soap for anybody for dis world.” In other words, people, make your own soap o.

4. Work hard consistently.

Since soap cutting is out of it, working hard consistently is the next best thing out there then. Being excellent at what you do will not be enough, you will have to also be consistent with it. Hustle o, make your girlfriend no leave you go party for oba.

5. Nigerian scammers are creative.

All was well and good after the burial ceremony, until I got a dm from Obi Cubana asking for an airtel recharge to help make money fly in my household. Like, what???

Nigerians don’t joke when it concerns their money. Avoid scammers easily with www.vtpass.com, where you can buy airtime/data, subscribe GOtvDStv, or Startimes, pay electricity bills, buy insurance or pay educational bills at the tap of a button.

You Are Mentally Exhausted

Are you mentally exhausted and don’t know it? There always exist periods where it seems you lose interest in working and develop what can be described as an apathy towards work. Someone could even say you’re being lazy or laidback towards work.

We’ll walk you through a quick test today to check if you’re dealing with exhaustion or you’re just really lazy.

1. You Don’t Feel Motivated.

Firstly, you don’t feel motivated. Not feeling motivated is not always a sign of laziness, it can actually be a pointer to emotional exhaustion sometimes which arises as a result of the fact that you have done so much brainwork without adequate rest.

2. You Can’t Focus Or Concentrate.

Secondly, you are losing focus. Are you finding it hard to concentrate on what needs to be done? If you find yourself getting distracted easily, it could be a pointer to the fact that you are stressed and it needs to be managed before it affects you at the workplace.

3. You Constantly Fantasize About Drastic Change

Thirdly, you’re in a fantasy world. Do you find yourself suddenly imagining what your life would look like if you won the lottery? Or if someone suddenly relocated you away from the country? Using such fantasies to escape your present reality is a pointer to emotional exhaustion.

4. Small Tasks Seem Overwhelming.

Similarly, when stressed or mentally exhausted, you suddenly begin to struggle with tasks that you naturally would execute. At this point, work seems like a big deal and you just need it all to stop so you can breathe.

5. Making Your Bill Payments Stresses You.

In conclusion, we know any little thing stresses you out when you’re exhausted, especially when it concerns money. That’s why with www.vtpass.com, you can buy airtime/data, subscribe GOtvDStv, or Startimes, pay electricity bills, buy insurance or pay educational bills at the tap of a button. Above all, you eradicate stress!

Have you ever been in a situation where the search “awoof” (freebies) landed you in trouble?

Firstly, I’d always heard it said that “awoof dey run belle,” but experience really is the best teacher I guess.

awoof

On this fateful day, I needed to pay my DSTV subscription. Upon searching online, I found a website offering a 20% discount on payments. “Ahnahn, see free money.” If only I had known village people were after me.

I quickly entered the website as a sharp guy. inputted my card details and paid for the bouquet I wanted and got debited. I felt great. Above all, it was in that moment that I realised it actually feels good to know you got a better deal than the seller. The world was quite great, until…

Awoof

I started getting a series of consecutive debits on my account. Huh? I live in Meiran, Lagos State to be precise, why am I getting debited in Dubai? Ah, awoof!!! I had fallen prey to a scam website. My account was completely drained that day.
