Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 98
Why wouldn’t she? Considering the amount of
money involved. 50K.
After painstakingly checking what we had done,
and it was well, Madam Ifeoma handed Team
Igbakwambo and Team Man a huge bunch of money
each, and she asked us if we would be able to dig
another pit the next day, of which Man answered
“Yes”, likewise Igbakwambo and Ochagbuorie. Left
to me, i would had answered “No” because i wasn’t
feeling my both hands at all.
As i held the huge bunch of money Madam Ifeoma
gave me as our pay, i almost cried.
Tears of Joy, because the last time i held such
huge amount of money was when i went to pay my
final year school fees.
Where else would we head to after such hard work
but Soroagwa’s canteen.
Soroagwa’s canteen was empty of customers that
evening. What kept him company was the plate of
Isiewu and the bottle of Gulder beer he was
“Soroagwa you dey enjoy oh” Man complimented.
“na God oh” Soroagwa responded.
“shey na God dey chop the Isiewu, abi na Him dey
drink the beer?” I nearly said.
“wetin i go bring for una?” Soroagwa asked after
he had finished his “dialogue” with Isiewu and
“Ogbono soup dey?” Man asked. “yes e dey”
“okay give me Ogbono soup, and put four meat,
two kpomor and one fish” Man ordered.
I almost gave him a round of applause for ordering
like a Vampire would, but i thought twice because
the money was there.
“Akpu dey?” Man asked again. “yes e dey” Sorogwa
“give me four Akpu make i use start first, i fit
need extra later” Man ordered.
This time, i almost shouted “Hallelujah” because of
his wierd order.
On a normal Kponkpon day, i wouldn’t be able to
finish two wraps of Akpu, not to talk of three, but
here was Man demanding for Four wraps.
“the Four Akpu wey you say make Soroagwa bring
na for three of us?” Brainbox inquired.
“which kin three of us, na for only me jor” Man
replied. “e be like say una no dey hungry oh, since
morning na only Bons dey my belle, upon the work
wey we work” He further said.
Were the Four wraps of Akpu for three of us,
there would still had been leftover, because one
wrap was as big as the head of a New born baby.
“make i bring the same thing for una two?”
Soroagwa was refering to I and Brainbox.
I thought of it for a while and said, “no oh, me na
two Akpu i go chop oh”. “na two Akpu me sef want
oh” Brainbox said.
Even if i wanted to commit suicide, not with Akpu.
There were a hundred and one better ways of
“Brainbox, as you don pay your money for the
barbing salon wey we wan open, i want make you
borrow me your share of this money” Man said as
he was sharing the money.
“how Brainbox go borrow you money, Brainbox wey
like money pass himself” I said within.
To my greatest surprise, Brainbox said, “no
wahala, i go borrow you”.
“Baba Brain!! You be correct Man, no worry i go
give you back if we dig another pit tomorrow” Man
