The convo just reminded me of the school-mother, school-daughter, school-father, school-son, even school-cousin(if ur school-mother has a bf, the school-pikins of that bf are ur school-cousins).....yeye schl-family tree in Naija boarding sec schools. But that was part of the spicin' oh. I missed out of it cos I went to a somewhat ajebo skul, where school-parenting wasn't allowed legit-ly.
Ha, but my first term in JSS1 was spent in a hard-core boarding skul oh, as in ehn trés mauvais! Police Sec Schl(PSS), the new barack for Police staff descendants. I wan die(in short..tori for another day). When I first got to, the snr girl sleeping beneath my bunk automatically became my skul mummy. Ha! she took my mosquito net, my imported shoe polish cos the yeye had not yet given me my (police) boot, my bucket, many things like dat. In turn, I delivered msgs to and from and her bf. She made my hair once manageably. That was not really a nice experience of school-parenting for me.
When I transferred to my latter sec schl(the one-kind ajebo one), it was funny cos on the arrival day, a mother told me to take care of her daughter, Lizzy, who was crying. The daughter was my classmate oh and I told the mother. The mother was like she knows but she thinks I am more mature or emotionally blah blah blah than Lizzy. Whenever Lizzy and I reminisce over Lizzy's crying and my taking care of her now, it is so funny. That was six yrs ago and I was even janjanlah (little) then.
When I was in Snr Sec Schl, the school-parenting heated up in my skul oh. Ok, I was in the first set. So, I had no snrs just jnrs and the schl grew very fast yo! See my mates spying out for new students with fine cars to scope. The parents were glad to hand over their kids and settle my mates. Like real settling, some parents can be very generous sha. I guess I wasnt so sharp in doing such then cos I opposed having any potential skul-pikin. I was the jovial snr but those yeye JuBabes still introduced me to their parents on visiting days. Me, I know I cant watch a jubabe but when I am compelled to do it with material gratification, I would not be at fault if I dint do my supposed-job.
Anywoos, I am in Uni now and I don't wanna look over someborri, je ne veux pas. I don't mind someone looking out for me tho :))
PS: Did you guys learn that Akon did this. Did What?
"Political folks from all over the world hit up the New York Hilton for the 100th Annual NAACP Convention this week. And rapper Akon was set to have a meeting with the President of Senegal President Abdoulaye Wade. He and Akon were supposed to appear at a joint press conference yesterday to discuss the Third festival of World Black Arts. Akon, however, did not show, and stood the president up. We hear the President was anything but happy. I’m sure Akon’s Senegalese parents weren’t either. Classy."
