6 TYPES OF PEOPLE YOU WILL MEET AT IKEJA CITY MALL
I was at Ikeja City Mall earlier today and I spied Ramsey Nouah parking and going into the mall, I wondered how he felt coming there especially as he is very popular and fans with no chill will jump on him. I feel like every trip to ICM is interesting, you never know what you will see but you can be sure to see the following kinds of people on a typical day:
These ones are not here to shop, meet anyone. They are armed with their phones, clothes from their bottom box, face beat and friends to help them take the best photo ever. All they want is that Shoprite logo (it must be cos they are always right in front of Shoprite). I saw a group of young girls today, trying to take the perfect selfie for the gram, their neck almost break because the phone was so high & each girl was twisting their neck so much that I stood with my mouth open 😮
I can spot them a mile off now, they know how to target you. It's not a bad thing that they want you to buy their "Albums", na the huzzle na. The day I have spare change I give them, the day I don't I do my best to dodge. I wonder how much some of them make in a day...
I cannot count the number of celebrities I've seen at Ikeja City Mall. If you want to spot them, just spend a few good hours at the Mall and shine your eyes, you will definitely see one! My most remarkable celeb spotting at ICM was Dakore, she was so nice and courteous! That was a long time ago sha...
Be very observant at ICM, these ones are loitering about looking for maga. You will see them, shopping basket in hand, but they will never drop anything inside. They are often too close for comfort, always accidentally brushing you. I remember one time this guy was just "gumbodying" me, I turned around and asked if he minded? "Bros you cannot be chewingumming me, see space." He wore white on white trad. Few minutes later I saw this same bros trying to lift a woman's phone and she caught him! I almost joined to to shout Ole on his head but I decided to waka pass 😔
ALMS & CHARITIES
I remember one time I went to the Mall with Yomi and this lady gave him an envelop, he think say she dash him. I had to let him know to put money inside and return to her. You will get approached by these people asking for alms or those who forgot their transport fare at home and need you to give them one 5000 naira you are not using 🙂
Then there are the people who came all the way from their house to come and queue for Shoprite bread 😍. I have been on that queue too (no shame in my game) and I've jumped the queue a few times.
