Today it was 'black magic' crooning 'confam' with 'sasha p.' and it was friday morning after a long tiring week. My fumbled and ghastly laughable etighi moves took over. This is my shameless confession - I loose all semblance of decorum and dance etighi like no man's business when I'm alone in an elevator. It's like an evil spirit from 'Banky W' takes over my body.
I got caught out today. You know how it is when your song starts on the radio and you go "shoooo, that's my song!!!" and promptly, i leaned my neck forward like a starved turkey, stuck my butt out like a deranged fool and cracked one unconscious etighi side-step before quickly remembering that I wasn't alone in the elevator.
Two starched-faced white folks looked briefly at me, and for the life of me, I couldn't come up with a witty comeback fast enough. To confirm my theory that my actions are manifestations of an evil spirit from my village, I returned a stupid cheeky smile that could only have looked like osufia's and hurried out at the next exit.
Someone asked me today how I often appear to be collected and in control (in other words, 'like a boss'. He didn't add that last bit, but it's good therapy to often massage your own ego). I thought to myself, 'you should see what I do in the elevator'.
I think that my many years of telling unruly danfo drivers to 'go and hug transformer' has served me in good stead to generally not give a f&$....even when the truth is that, irrespective of my best poker face, all I often feel like is, plain and average- a crazed wanna-be professional who dances etighi when no-one is looking.
But if a two minute elevator madness moment continues to give me the pump to get through each day in this high stake craziness I have signed myself into, then ain't nothing wrong with that and God bless Banky, and Black Magic and Sasha P.
Everything confam. Etighi etighi etighi...

You brave doing your thing in the elevator. For the fear of cameras and seen and unseen eyes, I stick to being me in my underwear (makes me feel freer) in my bedroom. Only time I can't help it is when my phone rings in public. Eish! As for that one, totally love my ring tone (really isn't a wonder that I miss phone calls).
