Richard is such a brilliant boy so I had to enroll him in school. Initially he was refused admission into KG1 because they felt he was too young at 1 yr 6 months but he was talking already and he started walking at 10 months! By the time I argued it out, he got admitted and I was so happy to see him in his baggy shorts🤣 though he was really short and stout, my cute cupcake. Yeah yeah you got me there, what I did to get money abi? Well my parents and siblings supported me and I also have talents boku that I realized I could use but wasn’t easy.
I joined the Yoruba movie industry through my friend, Odunlade Adekola, a very funny guy, I featured in few movies before going back to school because I couldn’t cope so I concentrated on my studies. I later went for Auditions for stage productions and it gave me a whole different experience about acting and interpreting scripts too. I also met great Directors like Dr. Razaq Ojo, Uncle Bayo Oduneye, Uncle Yemi Akintokun… it was fun!
I also met a TV news reporter who gave me the opportunity to work with a parastatal of internal Revenue under the Ministry of Finance of Ogun state Government as a presenter, newscaster of a 30 minutes journal on TV, another great opportunity… The camera is my bestie! So I hustled a lot to balance myself. The only problem I had and still have is getting help by being laid! Plenty fools with dangling knives to cut anything in skirts o!
Deelah Diary The Rejection
Getting a government job no be pancakes at all, na connection and when a person no Sabi anyone, na oyo I dey o! I was seriously searching for a job and my mom on the other hand was looking out for the day I would say, meet the man I want to marry! Egbe! Inside life, orisirisi nkan lonsele, different strokes for different folks, ironu o papo rara🤣!
When I even tried to give some guys the chance, mom struck all off, and I said ehen ok o. At a point she now said I should call Mike and get him close to myself so I could even get another kid so I won’t bother…I didn’t allow mom to finish o, I told her, ‘ mom kole werk!
As I was talking to myself, Richard just called out my name,well that’s what he called me o,my name! and started rubbing my head saying sowwie. He thought mom had beat me. He grew to know my mom as his, same for my dad too and me, his mate… I love him so much!!! 4years and Richard blossomed into a handsome boy each passing day! Thank God for the gift of life.
Mike walked in on me unexpectedly one hot Wednesday afternoon… I was just resting from the previous day’s waka and I heard the knock and there he was… I welcomed him and led him to the living room, as he was about to sit, mom just called from her room to ask who it was but came to see herself because I wasn’t even in the mood for such a visitor! His son rushed in from the room where he was with mom and just went straight to meet him and pecked, as usual, he liked it. Mom left us after exchanging pleasantries and Richard followed her immediately, omo mommy!
We sat there like strangers, nothing to talk about and before I could break the silence, his phone rang, he checked and ignored. Kept ignoring so I decided to leave him to pick his call since he wasn’t comfortable with me there. It was so amazing at the pitch the babe on the other side was shouting.., ‘why didn’t you pick your call? You are with her abi? I thought you said you won’t go to see her and you told me you don’t love her! You said the child isn’t yours! So what are you doing there? Instead of you to concentrate on my pregnancy, you are there for nothing…’ she dropped the call and he just stood there like a confused being!
I was speechless for a minute and blurted out, ‘so why are you here? Please take your leave!’ I felt really bad…mom heard my voice and came out to check what happened but I was so pissed that I just wanted him off my sight. Gosh what happened to the lovey-dovey days? Is this the love he professed to me years ago? Really? He’s impregnated another babe? My child isn’t his? The words just kept ringing in my head. I felt like shit like I was never really loved by Mike, it was all lies! He just kept denying me and my son, but why? Na so love be???
