Cynthia: HelloAt this point, Dan Foster gets on the phone (American accent and all).
Cynthia: Is this Sade
Cynthia: OK, I got your number from your friend, Biola (I'm using another imaginary name, can't remember the real name)
Sade: Oh, OK
Cynthia: So here's the deal, there's this party and we need your assistance, there's gonna be lots of guys coming in from Abuja. I want you to supply me with some girls.
Sade: OK no problem. How many?
Cynthia: About 4 including you.
Cynthia: They must be fine girls o. I've been told you are very fine so your friends too must be fine.
Sade: Don't worry, we are all fine girls.
Cynthia: Hope you guys are OK with doing stuff with the guys o, because these guys might just want more than the usual ... you know.
Sade: You mean like "twosome" and stuff? (I think she meant "threesome")
Cynthia: Yes, exactly. Stuff like that.
Sade: No problem with that. We can do that.
Cynthia: OK Sade, can you please describe yourself for me?
Sade: Are you in Lagos? Where do you stay?
Sade: Give me your number, maybe I'll hook up with you so you can see me.
Cynthia: OK, but please first describe yourself (physical features, etc)
Sade: OK, I'm tall, I'm dark, I'm busty and I have Ass. (What!!!!)
Cynthia: OK, that's good. What about your friends, hope they're good looking too
Sade: Yes very good looking.
Cynthia: OK, please hold on for my boyfriend who just came in from America. He wants to talk to you.
Dan: Hey Sade, how're you doing?Cynthia returns to the phone
Sade: I'm good
Dan: Hey I wanna know what you'll have for us. You know my friends are coming in from Abuja and my boy is gonna be with them. What will you have for us?
Sade: Oh we'll have a lot
Dan: So what you gonna do for my boy?
Sade: (obviously excited now) Do you know this song "My humps" by Black eyed peas? (and she went on to recite Fergie's line in the song) "I'm a make make make make, make you scream, make you scream, make you screeeeaaam!" That's what we gonna do for your boy.
Dan: WAOW!!! I KNOW THE SONG! MY BOY IS IN TROUBLE!!
Dan: OK, Sade, how old are you? I wanna know how old you are.
Sade: I'm 22 (OMG!!!)
Cynthia: Hey Sade, what are you doing? That's my boyfriend!Dan decides to break the ice
Sade: Oh nothing, just telling him what we'll do at the party.
Dan: Hey Sade, do you listen to radio?... and the girl starts screaming as Dan Foster fades out the conversation.
Sade: Yes, I do (probably thinking about another fetish)
Dan: OK, do you ever listen to Cool FM Good morning Nigeria?
Dan: Do you have a cousin named Lola?
Dan: OK, you are on Cool FM and you're being heard live all over Nigeria.
I sincerely hope Sade was embarrassed enough to change her ways ... and I hope other girls who partake in similar vocations will learn a lesson. Many of these girls have a need which pushes them into these things, some have to pay their school fees themselves, some have younger ones to take care of but for some of them, they are driven into it by sheer greed and peer pressure.
I'm at a loss here. I can't even think of a solution to proffer. I throw it to you. What do you think about this issue? How can it be addressed? What can the government or the people do to alleviate the situation?
