Anastasia: The Beginning

A little something for my new UNILAG friends. Thank you.

I got tired of being single

I got tired of being tired of being single

I got tired of being – ah, you know the picture,

No photoshop. No Flash. Non-Fiction

So I made my own creation;

Anastacia; I called her

You should see the looks of consternation;

I arouse every time I call her

Or rather; she calls me

Calls Me!

Spends hours with me on the phone,

talking;

Leave all those Moremi girls staring jealously

See Nike looking. Jealousy!

You know how girls are na

How they ignore you; leave you in your plight

And when someone else wants you; they see the light

Me? I carry shoulder and waka far!

“Where’s your girlfriend?” They’d ask,

“Somewhere in the UK,” I’d answer,

Suddenly I acquired fifty Facebook stalkers,

Hundreds of Twitter followers,

And even window eavesdroppers!

I knew it couldn’t last forever, so I choose Nkem;

“Anastasia broke my heart,” I said

“Ohh baby,” she sighed, cradling my head on a pair of cushions

This is heaven; I thought and surrendered my mumu buttons

It was fun for the next three months,

Nkem was most anything a man could want,

Till one Sunday in my room, me listening to Asa;

A knock on the door, “Who’s that?”

The answer came “Anastacia.”

I thought it was a joke till I remembered what Anastacia means…
