Heyyyyy yallll…heyyy yallll. If you don’t know that outcast song – better start calling me aunty. 😅 Please I am playing ooh I know I am well seasoned but please I am not old – i just have a few strands of platinum hair – yep expensive hair.
So lately I have started doing something odd. In the past when I lived in Arab country (the Middle East)- I used to watch the local evening news in Arabic- don’t ask. It actually complimented the Arabic class I took for 1 year – I can write basic Arabic and can eavesdrop on conversations and pick up a few things.
My latest confession is watching African Magic Igbo- I dont know anything about Igbo minus the basic – kedu and Odinma etc. But lately I have been watching with full attention. I am not sure how long this phase will be, but I am enjoying it. Igbo movies seem to have a thing for “obodo oyibo”, marriage and village life. Yoruba movies are more shouting – illegitimate families, affairs, retribution, juju and more juju etc. Don’t worry my bias is fair- when i shift to watching Hausa films, I will let you know what I find.
In the midst of all this I have refused to watch Telemundo or Zee. Most people put all these stations with African Magic in the same bracket. Are they really? Or maybe my childhood was just “Nigerian reality” deficient, who knows. I don’t have the answer, but I am not looking for an answer.
Don’t worry I will soon start shouting out all the community members in Igbo. 😆
Please that song by Omawumi – mbegbele – what does it means losely translated? I know the entire song, but i don’t know what I am singing.😂
