It was an upstairs kponkpon, we would have
to go upstairs to pour the rice and beans.
Very risky kponkpon, as someone might
mistakenly fall off. Or so i tot.
Bcos of how risky it was to climb upstairs to
pour the rice and beans, the money was
700naira per bag instead of the normal
600naira per bag.
It was indeed war bcos we were like 15guys. A
look at the wierd and rough looking guys, i
was sure about half of them were Masters
holders in kponkponity, while the rest were
Phd holders in kponkponical Engineering.
I and Brainbox were just WASSC holders
tutored by our master Man who was just a Bsc
Funny enough, Baba jay couldn’t be regarded
as a FSLC holder but a Nursery school
certificate holder, that is if there was any
certificate like that.

Baba jay was really a fast learner, he was
catching up with the kponkpon tutorial he was
learning from some of the Phd holders in the
I could finish only six bags before work
closed. Lazy me!! When there was a guy that
did 15bags, even Man did 9bags.
As we walked home, i was happy for Baba jay

“Ministry of Kponkpon” wasn’t a tragedy like
I never knew Tragedy would soon come for
Hereditary “wahala” awaited him.
Something i never knew Baba jay had.
Something i only saw on Tv. I saw it in reality
for the first time.
We boarded the same canoe we boarded while
going. Just that we were the only passengers
this time around.
“guy una dey make money well well for this
una canoe business oh” Man said to the
canoe attendant. “naso oh, na God dey do am
oh” the Canoe attendant replied. “e be like say
i go come follow una dey do the business oh”
Man teased. “u never do kponkpon business

We had barely crossed to the other side of the
River when Baba jay brought out the money
he had made and said, “omoh mehn! Money
dey for dis kpokpon business oh, see as i
make 2100naira today. “shebi when i tell u

I had never seen Baba jay that happy since i

showing us his money.
