A little stroll down memory lane...

Raise your hands if you were guilty of any of the above. :-D

-I remember growing up and my parents were on the strict side. Who born the maga wey wan collect boyfie at 15, 16? So when guys wanted to call me, I would tell them to call my house and ask for my brother, just in case my parents picked up the phone…so that if such a thing occurred, my bros would use style and pass the phone to me when they weren’t looking. Chei, one day my mama caught me sha o. Hahahahhaha…now it’s heelarious how she calls me now asking who the dudes in my life are. LMAO

-I remember when we used terms like ‘Omo that guy dey razzle me’, or that guy dey ‘chyke’ me. ‘Toasting’ still reigns though. Who dey toast una now oooo?

-I remember when guys used to put effort into ‘toasting’ babes. As in, dem go make arrangements to scoop you up, carry you to Mr. Biggs while you blushed over your meatpie and fanta and he would drop lyrics laik say nah hin be the reigning emcee on the block.

-I remember when the toasting stage would lead to the ‘asking out’ stage and as a bigz babez, you had to form o. There was no way a guy would ask you to be his girl and you would instantly reply with a ‘yes’. We always said…’let me think about it’, even though you know say you go marry am if hin propose sef. Of course you would use like 1-2 days to think about it while the bobo’s heart would be beating rapidly. Chai! In this day and age, do guys still ask women to be their girl sef? Hahahahahaha.

-And speaking of being toasted, I remember the goody bags that toasters would bring. I remember when I used to go to lesson and this toaster of mine brought a goody bag filled with cookies a.k.a biscuit, candy a.k.a sweets and chocolate, five alive etc etc and all my friends gathered around me oooh-ing and aah-ing and of course some people wanted to just join and chop the food. When I come tell the bobo say I no want, his friends called me oh talkin’ bout…’after all the money that he spent on you. He spent N700 to buy you those goodies’. LMAO…then N700 was a big deal sha o.

-I remember all those baffs that used to reign. Pedal pushers, elbow tops, hipsters, spaghetti strap…you name it! Kai, e get some babes wey dey operate on some strictly DIE HARD movement, as in dem go carry long sleeved top to the tailor make hin adjust am to instantly produce an elbow top. Voila! Or they would cut leggings into pedal pushers. Hahahaha…it’s quite funny how we were all so into the latest trends then and these days some people couldn’t care less.

-I remember when guys used to actually write love letters and some of those extra ones who would be singing on the phone. LMAO.

-I remember when we would go to parties and after a while they would turn off the light talking about ‘it’s time to dance blues’, and all we prudish babes would quickly go and find our seat, after all good girls like us did not dance blues with no guy. And for the girls that remained standing, we would gist about them the next day talking about… ‘That Nneka is a bad girl o! She was dancing serious blues with Tommy at that party…’. HahahahahaBut on the real, speaking of dancing…we used to maintain a safe distance will dancing, none of that backing up like they are sexing on the dancefloor type of steez that one sees nowadays…and for man’s hands to even reach my hips, was such a huge thing. LOL, I really used to be a goody goody sha.

-I remember when babes used to borrow baffs and it wasn’t nothing. Your girl would call you and say ‘Men, e get this party on Saturday…can I borrow that your blue spaghetti stap top?’ and you’d say…’no problem, I’ll be home by 5pm so come and collect it’. Good ol’ days.

-I remember when not everyone had a cell phone and certainly not a home phone so sometimes the best way to contact some people was to call their neighbors house and the neighbor kwa would go and find them…but ultimately, the lack of phones strengthened our friendships as we were forced to go and visit each other.

-I remember ‘chancing’ at Naija parties. You would be dancing with a guy and another guy would come and chance the guy that you were dancing with. Ha Ha! Try that in Yankee and see if someone don’t kerk out on your a-z-z. Oh, and guys used to actually dance with guys and it wasn’t nothing…now all this homophobic kini don reared it’s head.

-I remember as bigz babez we did not want to be caught dead on an Okada but you had to get to where you were going so we would hop on it and take style to hide our face… unless you were like the konk ajebo that had a car and driver at your disposal 24/7. But don’t knock Okada o, na on top Okada wey some babes dey meet their man. I mean…imagine you on top the Okada with your cascading waves of weave flying in the wind, na so some bobos go just tell their driver… ‘follow that bike’ and that is how this girl I know met her husband. True talk. :-D

-I remember those summer lessons. PH in the house? E get one reigning lesson wey dey for 2nd artillery abi na Rumuodara, one of them sha o. Me my work at that lesson was to wear my latest baffs and look cute. I used to skip classes like a good # of the time sotay one of the teachers actually came to visit my mom and report me. I just denied am sharp sharp! LOLThat lesson was totally hitting sha o. Na there wey babes dey find summer boo and what not. Ahhh memories.

-I remember going to buy soda a.k.a mineral and you would have to carry a bottle to give the mallam or return his own bottle. Or when guests would come and you would make a quick run to buy them one bottle of mineral. My mom gave up on buying crates of mineral because it would be gone within 2 days. And stuff like Five Alive and Just Juice? That was a complete luxury. Hahahaha…America good sha ooo.

Man so many memories sha and there is more where that came from. I know without a doubt that I had one of the best childhoods evAr and I continue to look back on those days with fond memories.
What do YOU remember about the good ol’ days?

*Edit:- I just had to call all you guys out...you know the ones that used to approach babes at parties and say 'excuse me dance'. Yes ooo, I remember y'all. Olu, Webround, Bagucci...make una come confess oooo.
Funny story, e dey this Aba bobo wey don watch too much Gangsta movies, na hin he con see one babe wey just return from Yanks at one party and so going off his gangsta lessons hin con approach the babe and said...'let's dance Bitch' in a very igbotic accent. *Dead*

'Flash-back' moments: when Collectibles was the creme de la creme for all 'baffs', Sunday afternoons at Big Treat, "all boys out!!!" at club parties, when 774 was the number to have (multilinks auto classified you as 'top class'), etc.

I remember having to baff up plenty when going to church. St Agnes was for baff showoff sha not for worship.

Anonymous said...

as for the "follow-that-bike" tip!, someone has done it for me before. i was on a bike and he was trying to get my attention, i thought it was someone I knew.
when my bike stopped, and i was paying, he got out and started toasting. LOL!

bob-ij said...

Mgbeke: ahh you're too good. What happened to toasting and chancing???? looooool.....hehehehe wow how did that even happen. And girls even liked it. My entire household is dying and boys dancing with boys..I know! They should try it now! and umm pedal pushers?? bad memory!
x!

webround said...

kai! original mgbeke, why u come put us for spot..?

since i went to boarding school, 'excuse me dance' happened every day friday night during the weekly social night (during the dance). and even on the dance floor, senior boys will be oppressing you, always 'chancing' the junior boy when he's dancing with a fine babe but who born the junior boy to go chance senior boy dancing with babe?

my elder brother's set was the set of 'italo' sandals (so called italian sandals), baggy trousers- those ones that widened at the bottom to practically sweep the floor(my popsi told me they also had it during his days and then they called it - 'keep lagos clean')

Deji D said...

lmfao @ "let's dance bitch". some dudes do way too much. ah ahn!
I experienced every one of those things. I remember when i called one babe and her dad picked up the phone and threatened to kill me lol. now its funny, but then i was numb...thanks for the memories.

BSNC: Keep on strolling with me honey. :D

Olu: LMAO why are you rolling? You know you said 'excuse me dance'. Oga Chancer. LOL. Yeah men skinny jeans dikwa very 'interesting' on these men of nowadays. Back then for lesson, bobos go roll up one exercise book and put am in the pocket of their baggy jeans.

Original Mgbeke said...

Anon @ 7:52: Girlll, Collectibles was the spot. It was only cool to say 'I got this from Collectibles' even if na for Tej market wey you buy am from. 'All boys out'...hahaha only the CORRECT boys stood the test after an all boys out. Wow, God bless Nigeria! LOL

Hahahaha @ 'Italo' abi na 'keep lagos clean'. Too funny

Deji D: No blame the bobo na, na too much 'Amelikan' mofie wey hin don watch finish. LOL @ the girl's father finishing your life. Men me sef acquired some Okada experience in Uni days. Fun times!

Rose: LMAOOOO, I don't even want to picture the kind of evil eye and possibly hot slap that she gave him.

Rayo: I heard it is even worse in lagos as in keeping up appearances, no one wants to even enter drop talkless of Okada.

Temite: That story still cracks me up every time. LOLLLLL
