Getting personal.....

I must rant this morning. I'm noticing that Nigerians sometimes don't really like the new, the different or the exotic. I am very different with my waist length all natural, gorgeous locks! Someone said to me a while back that I'm too alternative for Nigeria and should go back to Camden Town or wherever it is I come from! People have said to me that I'd never get married! Can you imagine that? They don't know that there is at least one man in this country that likes the hippie me and that I will get married when I'm ready! You should hear the things some people say to me and about me just because they have no idea where I'm coming from or where I'm going to! Sometimes some young ass twenty-two year old girl will come up to me and talk patronising nonsense because I'm very quiet and look like I'm nineteen and stupid though I'm a full-grown, intelligent, twenty-nine! Please never judge a book by its cover. Some people have actually tried to run me out of this town in ways you cannot imagine! I'm just too much of a mystery for their limited imaginations. Haters! I'm one of the most hardheaded b***hes you'll ever meet. A steel magnolia, as quiet and wordless as I seem to be. Y'all just make me laugh and add more fuel to a fire that's never going out. Just watch! As Fela said "who no know go know! Or in the words of the late rapper Notorious B.I.G, for those who don't understand broken English, "if you don't know, now you know, n***a!
