As I seat here, I have had the song “Bottom Belle” on repeat over and over again.
Ok…for those living under the rock or well my non-Nigerian readers, “Bottom Belle” is a recent remix of a 60’s Nigerian highlife song by Omawumi and Flavour Nabania (Nigerian Musicians). It is basically based on the need for men to show their appreciation or love by “cooling the lady’s hearts”(offering actual gifts).
You may ask…So? What’s the story here?
Well…I can't go into details on the genesis of this outburst, as the wound is still sore for all the parties of my tale. I can only give a hint.. He is married with kids, she is single. He is "chopping" and not "dropping". She is vexed and gives an ultimatum...Pay or leave!
As usual, I can ascertain comments on this post may include calling names like “whore”, "ashi"… However, I can only say this: I totally agree with the lyrics of the song…(translated to mean … You tell me you love me, yet when I tell you to buy me niceties, you become stingy ..in Omawumi's words…”ARADITE”...). Any man that claims he loves or cares has to able to prove this by showering me with gifts especially when I know you are not husband material!..Abi ..…what else can be in it for me?
I am not about to stutter about this…I am all for if he is eating, he has to pay!!!
Ok ….MURDER me...!!!
