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.
